I missed out, but my coworker scored at his Wal-mart 1/2 off red sticker, Unexpected Gathering $20, Warg set $13, Catwoman and Golem/Bilbo $2.50 each. Of course when I go nothing left.

Has anyone seen if Walmart will have the Lego Marvel preorder bonus minifigure on the Xbox One/PS4 versions?  I can't seem to find any answers :(

I built 76004, the flying Spiderman car set.  It's a really fun build, some nice minifigures and great pieces.  The motorcycle is really nice and simple model.  The best brick built motorcycle model LEGO has made.

Series 11 is hitting stores. Boxes are stickered with a 9/1 street date. Pretty sure there will be stores that will have them on the floor though.

I'll be checking mine sometime soon, but they are normally late to the party.

 

As long as they have them before the B2G1 sale in September I'll be happy.

 

What's TFW2005 boards?

First things first: booyah!

 

series11_zps180f0d6f.jpg

 

Lego fans are awesome!  I went to a TRU today, and I saw the green bags and someone else feeling up the Legos.  Seems he'd asked an employee if there were any more Series 10, and the employee brought out the new ones.

 

We didn't have a box, though, and I had no idea what to feel for.  He had his phone, but it was awkward to check the phone all the time.  He lamented that it was too bad we didn't have one of the catalogs in the bag.  Brilliant!  I bought a bag, and brought the catalog back so we could use it.

 

We worked together.  Since he'd been there first, if I found something he didn't have, I gave it to him.  I felt that was only fair, especially since they wouldn't have been there at all without him.  Then he'd find one I didn't have.  I think I got them all but three.

 

It was so nice because it wasn't competitive.  We we just two Lego fans helping each other out.  It's gotten so I hate going into TRU because of its stupid handling of Transformers.  Which leads to...

 

 

What's TFW2005 boards?

 

Transformers boards.  With Transformers, posting sightings are necessary because there are no Transformers stores and distribution is at best a crapshoot and at worst really unpleasant.

 

Finally, I bought some parts from Bricklink to enlarge the Minecraft set

Hey all!

 

So, I decided to get back into collecting Legos...

I bought a few on the Lego shop site, but a promo, but I noticed that Target has some blow out prices, especially on this set (in-store):

The price was $64, so your price may vary. I'm in SoCal, so you might want to call...

I just came back from TRU.  *ugh*

 

For some reason they decided to redo the store... again.  They redo it every 18 months or so.  I guess if they keep redoing it it distracts the costumers from the overpriced toys you can get anywhere and the bad service.

 

Instead of doing full aisles they now all are half the height in half the LEGO section and then have some school crap mixed in, it's a mess.  I don't understand the change, the store was simple and easy to find everything and still looked nice.

 

Anyways I found the mini figures and they had 10-15 series 11.  Tons of cops and female robots, a few mountain climbers, two gingerbread men.  I only bought four, I'm waiting for the B2G1F sale in 3-4 weeks.  However I was looking for the rarer ones, or my favorites, they had no islanders, or scarecrows, or welders, or sax guys.  But I did get a grandma (the cat is amazing!!!), diner woman (Didn't know she had mean face, really nice), elf (a teddy bear AND gift box!) and German woman just because my grandma is flying back to the USA from Germany now.   :)

 

I must say I really like the series, and the minifigure parts (minus the feet) seem to be normal and not incredibly poorly made like past series.

 

This is a review of the LEGO CG (overpriced) helicopter...

 

Putting the helicopter together with the instructions sometimes is very misleading what goes on before the other piece. Once the helicopter is all together it is hard to keep it all together. If children are playing with it it will fall apart very easily.

 

 

 

Ugh.  Someone else is like "My children take pride in building these sets and then they just fall apart when you play with them!"

 

I've played with LEGO, they don't fall apart, and with the huge pieces they go back together real easy.  With people like this LEGO is doomed.

I don't know -- I think some sets do fall apart more than others. My son bought the older Jabba's sail barge and the brown flaps would fall off, the "wings" would fall off, and some of the decorative pieces would fall off. We were careful but it always seemed like we were putting pieces back on whenever we moved it, touched it, or looked at it funny. It got annoying.

That said, I think some of these people making reviews can't follow directions and expect to fly their ships around their houses or have them survive demolition derby.

All my local TRU's are remodeling, and what I find funny is that they've already done this layout before, and they decided it didn't work. I think you are totally right -- it's a distraction.

Or the higher ups really are that stupid. "It's too tall. Shelves should be shorter and more open."

"There's not enough space. If we had taller shelves, we could stock more items."

I agree that some sets are just poorly designed, but when that is the case LEGO fixes it.  They fixed the big TMNT set completely redid it, and the space shuttle set was redone / renamed to make it better.

 

But you can't pick up a plane, throw it against the wall and expect it to stay in one piece.  Plus it's LEGO, just rebuild it.  City sets are very well designed, Star Wars sets are more designed to look like the ship than anything.

 

My TRU is also a BRU, but the TRU part looks like the old layout with everything short in the middle and just weird random things everywhere.  The guy greeted me asking if I need help with anything, I didn't know I was walking into a mess of a store.  If they wanted to redo the store I would but the small ones in the front, and then just spin the aisles around to go the other way.  

 

And having worked in that TRU, it's way too small in the back and this will not be helping at all.  

 

Oh well.  I only go in for minifigures, and the cashier was hot, stoned, but hot.  :lol:

I haven't really gone looking for it, on Tuesday I did go to a Target but the lot that I saw a few weeks ago were gone, my baby was getting fussy so I just left it like that.

The $29.98 price is much better, provided you can find it at that clearance price point.

You should start a program where you buy everyone on this board legos for a 15% markup lol

My local stores will not do a return/rebuy or payment change on clearance items.

You can pick up the Constitution Train Chase for $54 at yoyo.com. It's $89.99 on their site, but use both codes NEXM4193 and 20LABORDAY to get an additional 40% off. It'll drop the set to $54!

Stacking a referral coupon and the labor day sale sounds like a good way to buy a lot of decent sets if you can use different accounts.

Playing around with those two codes,

20LABORDAY gives you 20% off one item

NEXM4193 gives you 20% off all items, to a maximum of $20 off

You can pick up the SW Republic Gunship or Jabba's Sail Barge for 75.99 before tax (if applicable)

LOTR Pirate Ship ambush or King's Castle for 59.99 before tax (if applicable)

I was going to order the King's Castle until it told me I'd already used the new customer discount, so I only get the 20% off.  This is why I hate shopping at Yoyo.  I spend the time to find something, only to find I'm not eligible.  
 

Yeah, I can make another account.  I'd rather shop at a place that wants me as a customer, rather than wanting me in the door and then not giving me the time of day so they can chase new customers.  It irks me that I either have to try and circumvent their system or not get the deals that other people are getting.  It's a stupid mixed message.

 

I wonder if my mom wants a King's Castle...

The NEX... code is a referral code for new customers. That's why it only works on new accounts. The guy who posted it gets credit when you buy stuff.

Don't think so.

 

I'm so tempted to get the Pirate Ambush set, it's so tempting.
