Re: LEGO Star Wars Rogue One 2016 Sets (Official Images)

Ugh... all of these sets look like bland and uninspired MOCs. They are destined for the clearance aisle along with most of the Ep 7 sets. We haven't had a new AT-ST in a long time... and when we finally do it looks terrible.

Re: Toys R Us UK & USA 2016 LEGO Star Wars Day Sale

Also, 75079 is regularly $15.99. Logged on just to point that out myself. Not sure why but TRU has always had the Shadow Troopers box WAAAAY above MSRP; far more than the usual 5%-10% over they usually have Lego stuff at. Not sure why it's only this SKU, all the others that came out at that time (S...

Re: Captain America's Motorcycle at TRU

Local TRU in NC had them out today (may have been out Sun) and I grabbed 5. Clerk that checked me out asked if I wanted any more as he had another full box behind him. This TRU store is one of the ones that usually puts the promo bags out both before and after their promo giveaways. They even ring u...

Re: Disney CMF at Wal-mart

Had my local Walmart run the UPC. 50 listed in stock, nothing on the shelf. They said they're constantly getting stolen. True story. I used to grab the entire box when a new set of CMF's came out and take it to the register. Almost always the clerk would just scan the bottom of the box and it rings...

Re: Disney CMF at Wal-mart

Two fresh boxes at Walmart. I grabbed one for myself (54, not sure it was the original number in it). Pulled almost 2 full sets (only got one Buzz and one Chesire Cat)

I'm really disappointed they didn't put "Eat Me" on Alice's mini-cake. :mrgreen: They put "Drink Me" on the bottle tough.

Re: 2016 Summer LEGO Star Wars Sets (75145 75147 75148 75149

The new AT-TE (shown in the far back with what look like fishing rods hanging off of it) is the one converted to a mobile house by Rex, Wulf, And Gregor in SW Rebels. It is most definitely not just a standard AT-TE re-release. That said, I am really excited for it! It's just too bad the MSRP will be...

Re: Scooby Doo Toy Fair Report

Didn't realize that they lost the TMNT license. Mega Bloks must be giving them one heck of a deal to make them give up on the top building toy maker in the world to go with the guys who can barely even get half their products in Wal-mart.

Re: Scooby Doo Toy Fair Report

Is there a new movie or show coming out? I'm just wondering why they decided to release these. My guess is that with the Lord of the Rings movies being done they're scrambling for other licensed properties to fill in the gap. They Mystery Machine really should have been a bigger set that had the wh...

Re: DC Superheroes Toy Fair Report

I guess it's too much to ask that they finally make a Harley minifig that is in a smaller and more affordable set. Also, not sure how I like this cleavage and hotpants version. That look would be great on a real woman, but looks silly on a blocky minigfig.

The Good: Sabine with her Mandolorian Helmet!

The Bad: It's in a $130 set that I don't care about......

Also, very disappointing that the Sabine minifig with the speeder bike doesn't have her in her Mandalorian armor. It definitely changed my mind about wanting the set.

Re: 2015 January LEGO Star Wars Set Pictures 75078 75079 750

I really wish they would stop pushing the spring loaded missiles in all these sets. They add up to USD$10 to the retail price of a set. It makes them very unattractive buys for adult collectors. It doesn't help that the Minifigs in most of the spring loaded sets are terrible anyway, and this new Hai...
