Re: May 2016 - LEGO Brand Retail Store Calendar

So plan of attack is to bring calendar coupon for free 100 points with any purchase and buy $50 in star wars to get free poster, storm trooper and captain America :-) I'd better do an inventory so I don't buy the same sets twice, lol. I'm actually thinking the micro fighters would make good birthda...

Re: Second 2015 LEGO Ideas Review Results

I do see your point. I agree that sets based on books would be great. There are other reasons why sets don't get picked. The copyright holders may have said no or asked for more than Lego was willing to pay. They might have had to make new molds that would have driven the price up. I'm sure there ar...

Re: Second 2015 LEGO Ideas Review Results

Lego makes sets so it can make money. If their market research tells them that Adventure Time will sell better than the Little Prince, then that is the set they are going to make. Lego the company exists because they want to make money. They don't do it because of some altruistic reason. I'm not sla...

Re: Disney minifigures set: rumors and photos

Wow. I didn't think it was possible, but they managed to make them look even worse than I expected. So disappointed. Unless that picture is a fake, or preliminary art. In that case, I''ll wait to see the final product before saying how much I hate it.

Re: Tips for liquidating entire Lego collection

It depends if you want to get the best price or if you need to sell quickly. For selling quickly, just put it on craigslist or ebay as a bulk lot. If you want more money and can wait for them to sell, sets would be the better route. If they are complete and come with instructions and/or box and the ...

Re: GameStop Silver Centurion Iron Man polybag

EB Games in Canada was also doing the promo. The brick adjuster (on youtube) heard that they had extras and would give them out for free, if they had them. I went to my two local stores. The first store told me they still had a few people to come pick up their game and couldn't give me one, but the ...

Re: LEGO VIP Day is on Saturday, November 21st!

If you buy things online you can get the Lego Movie set the Melting Room for half price. Its not advertised and will only show up if you put in your cart. You will not get the calendar as that is in store only, but you still get the gingerbread house if you buy $99 or more. Plus double VIP points.

Re: LEGO Monsters Series 14 Minifigures - Now Sold Out

I don't know if stores will ever limit sales. I mean, they don't care who buys it as long as someone does. Now, I have seen certain items on deep discount being limited from time to time, but generally, if you got the money, you can take all you want.

Re: LEGO Monsters Series 14 Minifigures - Now Sold Out

Lego limits quantities so that resellers don't clean them out. It makes sense but is annoying.
