Cuusoo 21104 Mars Curiosity Rover availability

Post by vynsane » Mon Feb 03, 2014 8:54 pm

This has to be an error, but Cuusoo 21104 NASA Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover is currently marked 'sold out'.

EDIT: split off from the main 'sold out' topic because it looks like we're going to have to keep tabs on this one.

I hope so. I didn't get a chance to buy one yet.

It probably went to 'Sold Out' because the 'out of stock orders' until March 2014 went beyond the production numbers they are currently producing so in order for the TLG to catch up they put it to 'Sold Out' so no more orders can be placed at this time.

Like others hopefully this is the case and they will put it back up for sale soon.

Yeah, I seem to remember this happening with Minecraft Micro World as well. I think it became marked as 'sold out' and then was available again once they had something to sell.

I spoke to the a manager (I think) at the LEGO Store last night during the Micro Manager Monthly Mini Model Build (my first MMMB event ever) and he said it's going to be online only!

The Rover briefly came back in stock (but backordered) earlier today and I quickly placed a phone order. The rep on the phone was very knowledgeable and gave me some interesting info:
The initial run sold out quickly so they did a second run (the March 8 ship date ones) which also sold out. Then they decided to do a few thousand more and are shipping those on March 20. Beyond that, the LEGO rep was unsure if it would ever come back. The Rover is currently sold out again on Shop@Home so I'm glad I got my backorder placed on time. Fingers crossed it doesn't get cancelled...

Worth noting that brick specialist at store stated none of the stores are getting that set in store. That could change, but I tend to think it won't since it doesn't have as high profile as Minecraft or Back to the Future. Some stores can barely display all the LEGO sets currently out (my local one is the smallest one in Cali) so they have to keep some in the back sometimes.

The S@H site now has it marked as "Temporarily out of stock" which I've never seen before. This makes me feel quite relieved, I really want this one.

21104 will be back, but we have to remember, Lego catalog has it marked as "limited quantity" so I think it will remain as hot & rare set that people will be overpaying for on eBay.

Legoshop.com has it marked as 'sold out' again. This may be the end of it.

It's not. It's been sold out a few times now. My guess LEGO has finally reached their limit of how many sets they can actually make and because the movie has been a massive hit they are probably using the machines to make more of the movie sets before anything else.

I don't think waking up at 5 am PST just to try and attempt to order a set is a great idea, but I'm doing it anyways.

"Item is completely out of stock and no more will be produced" Well, I hope she is wrong. Back to bed. :lol:

If that turns out to be true LEGO Cuusoo is even a bigger joke than I thought!
