Re: 75827 LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters Official

I believe the doors were black in the film, so the LEGO model resembles like the movie-version (as opposed to the way the fire house looks today). Really looking forward to this set!

Re: [TRU] In-store and on-line 15% off and other offers

Tried to apply the 15% off coupon to the modular sets (like the Pet Shop) but couldn't get it to work. TRU is horrible, as usual...

Re: [USA] ToysRUs $15 off $50 LEGO Purchase

All the coupons in the online ad link to the BabiesRUs coupon. I went to my nearest TRU and they didn't have any paper ads (of course) so I had to show them on my smartphone how the online coupon isn't working. Thankfully they just discounted my purchase without the coupon (Lego were already discoun...

Re: [USA] Potential Wal*mart Clearance?

My walmart did a weird thing after having a bunch of lego in their clearance isle marked at full price. They removed them all from the clearance section and put them on the very top shelf of the lego isle. Some scan for full price, some scan for like 20% off, and then others scan for "please see an...

Re: Fire Brigade and Grand Emporium no longer on TRU website

They're back! I think TRU was doing some work on their website as these sets are back, along with new sets like the Maersk train and Robie house.

Re: Fire Brigade and Grand Emporium no longer on TRU website

Imperial Flagship 10210 is gone as well, and I know it was there earlier in the week because I was thinking of purchasing it. I think TRU is getting ready for a 30% off sale (see the Sales & Deals forum) and so perhaps TRU is hiding its higher priced items from the sale?

10% off Coupon on Lego Catalog

When my January 2011 Lego catalog arrived in the mail the other day, attached to the front was a coupon for 10% off any one item at the Lego store (but not online). I'm curious if everyone receives this coupon with their catalog or do they only go to those who live near a Lego store (I'm in the Chic...

Re: [USA/CAN] Legoshop sale

Wow! I just came out of the dark ages this year and had no idea Lego would discount so many sets at once. I was with family this evening and totally missed out! If I had known I would have camped out at my computer at 7pm EST because nearly everything is sold out now. Will the Lego stores be running...

Re: [USA] Target 30032 and 30042 50% off - $1.49 each

I wonder if anyone will actually find any of the Series 2 Minifigs on sale at Target. I have a feeling they've been picked over and gone for quite awhile now.

Re: [USA] Target 30032 and 30042 50% off - $1.49 each

Target have most halloween items with 50% off except candies that have 30% off. It includes set 30032 and 30042 that is coming up for $1.49 each. I am pretty sure that minifigures series 2 is with 50% off, but my local Target didnt have any. Some targets might mixed up the 50% off clearance sign wi...

Re: When is the best time to buy modular sets?

Thanks for the advice everyone! I grab the sets I think might be close to retirement (picked up the Green Grocer back in June, although I guess I could have waited til the Double VIP points going on now since GG is still around!) The Grand Emporium wasn't released all that long ago, so I anticipate ...

When is the best time to buy modular sets?

Does anyone have any advice on when the best time is to buy the larger modular sets like Fire Brigade (10197) and Grand Emporium (10211)? I was thinking of picking up the Grand Emporium this month while Lego has their Double VIP points promotion, but maybe I should wait until Thanksgiving or Christm...

Re: $5 off with purchase of $25 or more at ToysRUs until 10/

Anyone have the farm 7637 at there TRU? I really want it, but none around me have it. I haven't seen the large farm set at my local TRU in quite some time. They had it in stock months ago, then put it on discount maybe 4-6 months ago ($69.99 if I remember correctly) and I haven't seen it since then...

41 wasn't how many Amazon themselves had in stock, it's how many are available from third party vendors (which is down to 40 now, most of which are charging $99 or more).
