Brickset has the TMNT sets. They are so bad I'm not even going to link to the news story. Worst designed sets I have ever seen in my 20+ year history of beign a Lego fan. Even worse than some of the early 2000s sets.


Oh my god, the Turtle Van in particular is absolutely atrocious. The one that doesn't look too bad is the Turtle Lair Attack. Those mini-figs are gonna print money though...

The van to me isn't too bad because is at least a van. The dragon bike is a mess, stealth shell is decent, but doesn't look great and probably $20 for a $13 set. The mech is my least favorite. Lego is great at designing mech, but thats looks like a little kid made it.

The large vehicles are ugly, but they're not _that_ bad. It's all the tiny vehicles that look like a colorblind 7 year old made it.

Has anyone seen the LotR set 30210?


That's the Frodo booze/sausage grill poly, yeah? I can get it no problem. Looking for the Thor cosmic cube poly, the Batman jetski poly, the ghost clock poly or any other interesting ones...


$37+tax OTD for the Batwing, Darth Maul NERF, & a pound of Boneless BBQ Wings :) I think I'm already done buying gifts for next year...


Who's the lucky recipient of the pound of boneless BBQ wings???

One of the comments on Brickset was the little vehicles look like polybags, and polybags look better than those. We should get 1-2 polybags next fall so I think I'll just buy them for the amazingly great minifigures.

Talking about polybags I normally don't pay attention to them, so it's why I asked about the LotR one, it's at TRU, which I have gone to twice this year. The Batman jetski I thing is going to be a Target one.

I will not say the TMNT sets look good, but if I HAD to spend money, at least they have pieces, unlike Town Jr.

Hey guys, you might want to check the Christmas isle of your nearest Target. They finished setting up all the decorations and toys and I found this beauty!

There was also an empty bin for a Christmas LEGO Creator set (possibly the rocking horse or toy train announced earlier this year).

I think Target may have the POTC Black Pearl as part of its Black Friday sale because my local store just got a shipment of them...months after they clearanced out the rest of the line.

Yup, picked this up this morning in the XMas section. DPCI is 204-00-0557

Yeesh, what a rip. I paid $29.98 + tax - redcard for them in the first Target clearance of them around this time last year. Gimme one of the newer sets for $75, say Jabba's Palace or the Malevolence or the Battle of Helm's Deep...

Days of milk and honey and a good economy made 50% possible. Bad economy make for deals that aren't as attractive. Walmart has a nice 650pc bucket for $15.

That doesn't even make sense! :lol:

If the economy is bad then shouldn't it be 50% off because no one has the money to spend on a box of plastic?

I think the thing was $70-$80 on Amazon, with no tax, or lines, or crazy people.

The thing is, people are still buying Lego. In the last two years, two Lego stores opened up in my area. The last time Jabba's Palace was on sale at Target, it sold out of every Target in the area. I was at TRU today
[*] and people were snapping up Lego sets that were on sale, most of which were only modest values because of TRU's markups.

So they don't need to discount 50% off, so long as people are still throwing money at them.

[*] Today and tomorrow at TRU, the Star Wars planet mini-vehicle sets are on sale for 7.97. I quite like these, and it's a decent price.

The official release date is 1 December, but expect that TRU will put them on the shelves before Thanksgiving. They usually ignore the release date and put them out early.

Doesn't mean you can buy them. I worked out TRU, we stuck out the then brand new Ninjago sets too early. If you tried to buy them the computer system wouldn't let you.

Like Chima, don't expect it until after Christmas but City and such will be out soon.

Sure it does, when you have a good economy, you need to make things attractive to draw buyers in since they're going to spend money and you can take the hit on your loss leaders.

If you don't have a good economy, people aren't spending like they used to and you won't make up that huge discount form your loss leader so you have to reduce the discount.

The discount is to draw consumers to the store to generate sales, not discount items because the economy is bad.

Hardly....they have about ten sets listed under the 40% off banner and they are all only about 25% off MSRP at best. Nowhere does it say all. They have 3 different sections listed with lego, none are good deals as the stuff marked down the most has been available for further discounts since last year....meh TRU this is the worst BF LEGO offering to date!

so u have inside info??? as ad states '40% Lego!' - it shows some sets yes - and everyone knows TRU markup - but nowhere does it list it does not apply to all lego

Speaking of stupid things I've seen/read today, check out what Best(worst)-Lock finally managed to score a license to:

Spoiler


Almost kinda neat, VERY timely :roll:, but why so many dogs???

I think I want a Black Pearl now. If anyone has a spare (still-sealed, I don't want one with dirty bath water corrosion) that they'd like to sell for $70 shipped, I'll gladly buy it now rather than try to get one at Target on BF.

I think they pulled this ruse last year or the year before.

They listed sets, and didn't have exclusions but when you went to the store, it was only a handful of their most OUTRAGEOUS priced sets, and you'd only save around 15-20%.

So yeah... BF + TRU = A huge HELL NO.
