Somsone said on the previous page on this thread that amazon has it listed for 149.99 USD. That's the same price as the Green Grocer and the Fire Brigade. I would assume the grand emporium will be priced the same as those two in GB as well.

Very expensive Grand Emporium

Post by Legopilot » Thu Mar 04, 2010 5:58 pm

The price is lame in Britain. 140 GBP is the price. We're paying more than 100% times the price in US. US retail $150 converted is $100 GBP and 140 GBP is 210.5 US. I'm sure other countries does not deserve these unfair pricing. Which countries are facing the same price problems with the grand emporium ? Finaland? Denmark? Canada? Australia?

people should stop complaining about prices and judging the currecency just cause we get cheaper lego. lego is an expensive toy. america gets cheaper lego due to a higher population. its called supply and demand.

Its unfair some countries are paying ridiclous amounts, 2 times or even 3 times the price pay in US.

I say $160 Canadian would be a more approiate price. We get tax so lego is more expensive than US. Like i said before, best thing is wait for a sale. And looks like lego has given up lowering Canadian prices. The US prices for all the new sets are like this now:

$39.99 USD - $54.99 CAD (vs $49.99 CAD before)
$24.99 USD - $34.99 CAD (vs $29.99 CAD before)
$10.99 USD - $14.99 CAD (vs $12.99 CAD before)

Prices are different from place to place. Depending on where you live, the availability of that item to your country, and the demand of it.

But I bypass all that by not buying sets. I download the instructions, put together what I can with what pieces I have, and then buy the missing pieces from bricklinks. I may not have the box, but I just saved a bunch of money.

Whether it's sold in the US or wherever I can have it regardless. Much easier that way.
