Re: Any deals now that GBP is lowest in 30 years?

That tax isn't just for toys, it a tax on goods and services. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Union_value_added_tax) When buying goods that are not for use in the Euro zone, you can file for a VAT refund, or if the item is shipped directly from the vendor to a location outside the zone, they...

Re: GameStop Silver Centurion Iron Man polybag

My local store said the same thing. They still had random leftovers from previous games but only had enough for the pre-order pickups for Silver Centurion

Re: Target Clearance -Winter 2015

My local store in Phoenix had the same a week ago. 4 of them at the same price you found, along with 3 of the EV3's about about $100 off the normal $349 price.

My local Target had a S14 display case up with about 2/3 S15 and 1/3 remaining S14 hanging, both for $3.99/per.

Re: [Giveaway] First Order & Resistance Trooper Battle Pack

Thanks for the note. Until you commented about that I hadn't looked at the other posting about the typo. There isn't a link in this thread to it so it actually isn't clear what this is for if you haven't already read the other thread. Maybe I'm in the minority.

You can take me out of the drawing.

Re: 75827 LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters Official

Yes, the movie doors were black with a "slimer green" window color, although the real firehouse has red doors.

No luck today for the C-3PO polybag while I was picking up the last couple Bricktober sets in my local store in AZ.

Re: LEGO 75827 Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters Product D

I was just thinking the same myself. It will be nice to have this as a product and not requiring brinklinking for weeks, but if the original creator doesn't get some of the credit it feels a little wrong.

Re: Exclusive 2015 Holiday LEGO Train Set (Free Christmas Gi

Note that the double points only last for the first four days of the month, and DOES NOT overlap with the free train set :/ I was able to get the double points and the train today. Should I have held out until Black Friday when something else might have been available? The Assistant Manager at my l...

Re: [USA] LEGO City Cargo Train 30% off

I believe its call Amazon Warehouse. You can goto "other buying options" and click "used". If they have some available it will be under there. Be careful with the returned items. I got a set where all the minifigures were taken out. Amazon does not check to make sure everything is there. Here is th...

Re: LEGO Shop at Home - Free Shipping

Yea, exactly. The last one I was given was for the Arctic Icebreaker ship. The ship is over the free shipping threshold anyway so I kept the card for another order. A smile goes a long way.

Re: LEGO Shop at Home - Free Shipping

No, they are not the same, I have tried to use the same card again and it is not accepted either. Would be nice, but if you're friendly to the clerks at the store they'll usually give you one if you ask.

Re: LEGO Monsters Series 14 Minifigures - Now Sold Out

It would somewhat depend on if they removed all bad reviews regardless of topic, or just the reviews complaining about it being sold out.

LEGO in spaaaaaaace!

Saw this on the news last night as a quick blurb on the Danish astronaut's other missions while on the ISS, but they did a 5 second splash about him taking the minifigures with him.
