There is a cheat code to order items that are currently marked "out of stock" (in actuality they really aren't all gone). Here is how to do it:

Step 1. Go to the category of the LEGO set you want. Add a product that is RELATED, not the product you want, but is RELATED to the set you want. For example, the Family Home is currently marked out of stock, so add the Apple Tree House to your cart instead.

2. Once you add it to your cart, look to the right. Under the pane marked "You May Also Like...", you see that the Family Home is there. You will see a quantity "box" and an add to cart button. Add the quantity you want to the box and press the magenta Add To Cart button.

3. Apply %20 off coupon if your order qualifies for it.

4. Check out!

5. Wala! You ordered a set that is out of stock!


I just bought the Public Transportation Center, currently marked Out Of Stock, using this method.
That doesn't work for everything just tried it on the Space Police Central Command and it won't add it. :(
Yeah it is sporadic at best.
Just keep checking, they might "find" some more.
I have inoperable cancer and am unable to work. Any gifts would be appreciated. Thank you!

FYI, just received the 2 Fire Brigades I ordered this week from the website - they came in the original Lego shipping box (which contains 2) - while you might think this would help, they arrived with the outside box heavily damaged, and both sets inside damaged even worse! They are crushed so badly the tape on the side flaps of both sets is completely open (or someone had already opened them and taken stuff). Really bummed - I guess I can return them, but they are sold out now so at best I'll probably just get my money back...

Just beware on the shipping for these from TRU!

You can still sell them to collectors if you're a MIB kind of guy. And you'd likely make a profit on them with those discounts. Brigade is a great set, people will still buy it to build.

Agreed - gabriellee11 is awesome! I just ordered a Grand Emporium as well. For once, I got a set I wanted on sale before the eBayers bought them all! Much appreciated.

Bummer it is not on sale too though - it comes up as full price. But still a great deal with 20% off - just wish I could be greedy and get it for 28% off with the extra 10%!

I just wish they restock in time for next week's bogo half off sale. 25% is still good! I hate how fire brigade is always sold out. What gives? Why is this more popular than the other creator buildings?

Also, if only the death star set was on sale!

@natelite The issue is really that resellers from eBay and Craigslist swoop in and buy multiple sets when there is a good sale on these exclusive sets. They know that sets like Fire Brigade will eventually be retired, and will be worth WAY more in price. Look at Cafe Corner - it sells for way more than original price. So these resellers buy (I imagine) 5-10-20 Fire Brigades when they find a sale, and just stockpile them.

That said, I imagine there will be a lot more deals coming between now and the holidays. Even with double-points, it may be worth it to buy these via Lego Store. I have a local one, which means I don't have to pay shipping... we'll see!

Is this sale going to be on all lego sets starting next week?

Next week has no sales on LEGO except for some of the LEGO Electronis(radio camera and such), but as an added bonus with your magnet minifig you get a free Holloween pail with a $20 purchase. (wheeee)

I tried using the promotional code today and it is no longer working. I thought the promotion was up to 10/9.
Oh well...next time I guess.

It can be used once per account. What I did is that I didn't sign into my account. I typed all the info manually to make multiple orders. So, log out from your account and type everything again without logging in.

Thanks so much! I managed to get one before its sold out again. :D

Its funny to see how TRU has so much Lego out of stock when you click "view all" when searching for Lego. But I'm suprised how long the clone turbo tank and police headquarters lasted. It went out of stock when the sale almost ended. Perfect timing.
