A general question about Lego stores: In the past, I have exchanged doubles of a set my son received a couple of times, without a receipt, and had no problem. This was without even knowing if the set was purchased there. What about if you want to do a return on a shop at home item, can it be done in store as well or do they make you ship it back? His grandmother purchased a set I already have set aside for him.
They still actually return it as "no receipt" return, but it doesn't count against your total limit for such returns.
If you do too many "no receipt" returns they will cut you off sooner or later, but my local manager told me that for [email protected] orders, if I have the packing slip from the box, I may return anything I like that was purchased from [email protected]
What are you talking about? Coke won the Cola Wars almost 2 decades ago. Pepsi, the company, has had a higher value due to it's diversification while Pepsi, the drink, is no longer number 2 (that would be Diet Coke) and neither numbers 2 or 3 sell anywhere near what number 1 sells. I wish LEGO would make that kind of "mistake" and utterly crush their competition.LegoFanTexas wrote: To this day, most people know what the New Coke disaster was and Coke never really fully recovered from it, it gave Pepsi an opening that they took and held onto since.
I'll say, just to be clear, that I am by no means a "TLG can do no wrong" kind of guy, but what is the point of baseless doom and gloom speculation? Of course that would be bad. I am fairly certain everyone here agrees with that. Do you have anything saying that is happening? You might as well comment on how bad it would be for the sun to explode to try to make a point. So TLG didn't have a dynamite Black Friday sale? Oh my god the sky must be falling and they are going to slide into obscurity! Give me a break.TLG would be wise to keep that in mind, lest they do something stupid like move all their manufacturing to China to cut costs, only to have their product turn to crap. Once lost, you can't easily buy that reputation back.
Is this the same KREO that, at least at the Wal Marts near me, I can only find CityVille crap? The same one that I have to go to Target or Toys R Us if I want any of them that are worthwhile? While I can go to Wal Mart and buy most of the current LEGO sets as they fill their own isle? While I believe KREO is a better clone than Mega Blocks, I think the odds of it overtaking LEGO are on par with RC Cola pulling off a knock out blow on Coke. You guys are overreacting to one sale and the exclusion of one coupon that only a fraction of the fan base ever got, much less used (the 10% coupon and the exclusives for those wondering).KREO is just waiting in the wings for that...
I do not see reason to believe the sky is in any danger of falling.
However crap sales (discounts) will not be their downfall.
You have no way of proving that.zztoy wrote:Lol, the modulars ARE NOT selling... FAO and RUs have to actually give away highway pickups to get their inventory sold....maybe Lego will realize soon they sooo need their resellers. Lol
For all we know TRU bought too many sets and then LEGO went "No discounts" so they give you a free set because they didn't know ahead of time. In the future they will order less, or have more, but in small orders.
Or it's completely likely that the free set isn't selling so instead of discounting a set no one wants they give it to you for free.

Btw, I also agree that it's more likely that the set they are giving away is the likely one not selling well. It looks like a good set, but I gave up that line, and rather got my 3x VIP points and sticker through Lego. Even if I kept to resell, so many will be on the market, and shipping for large creator tends to be expensive.
I would venture to say the modulars are doing well for as long as they have kept FB and GE going. 5 Modulars currently available with a 6th coming out next year. Plus the Haunted House which is a hybrid.
Thanks for pointing this out. I totally forgot about this when I bought the set last week. Went to the store today and the girl gave me 2 sticker sheets. (:Marcus70 wrote:Thanks for the reminder on the Lego movie sticker for the Palace modular, got my local stores last one.
