What've you all bought during double VIP rewards month?

 

I've gotten the haunted house, 6 of the MF battle packs, and a ninjago samurai mech... too much? Thinking about putting in another order for the pet shop or cinema.

Anyone pick up LEGO marvel? Is iron patriot worth it?

 

I got the game yesterday (it actually showed up 2 hours before I got a shipping notification, oddly).  It's basically the same as the War Machine fine but with the little base.  I figured I'd probably miss out on it if I delayed purchase, and a new lady friend wants to play the game with me, so win win.

Got my Lego order but didn't get a Lego employee polybag. Figured that was hit or miss but the double points was the main draw for me. Especially since they nerfed the coupon for any exclusives.

AWD has the Lone Ranger coach set for $20.xx, the yellow cargo train for $138, the white and azure blue GS fighter for $14,  Jabba Sail Barge for $84, the Coast Guard helicopter for $25, this year's City advent calendar for $23 and had the big GS drop ship for $65, but someone might be buying it, it went "Unavailable".  Which is good because I love the dropship, but hate everything else.   :lol:

 

Head over to Brickset to hear the continuing news of LEGO Cuusoo being a complete failure.  Pretty much just one set for over a year, a minifigure exosuit mech thing.  No Zelda, mini shops, Portal or anything else.

So far I have only got the winter village market. I wish I would have bought it last month and bought the palace cinema this month but oh well. Fatwallet is now offering 5% cashback on lego.com. That is basically 15% off when coupled with the double VIP this month. The free lego holiday set and lego shop minifigure were just the icing on the cake. 

 

 

Got my Lego order but didn't get a Lego employee polybag. Figured that was hit or miss but the double points was the main draw for me. Especially since they nerfed the coupon for any exclusives.

 

Did you order from the new mobile site? I just got my order today and received the minifig. Thats pretty unlucky you didnt get one if you did order from the mobile site. These are already popping up on ebay. I thought about selling it but I will probably throw it in my bag of unopened polys until I get some sort of lego shop set.

I did order using the mobile site. Though afterwards maybe I shouldn't have since they wouldn't bother promoting something to someone already using it. Oh well.

I...really haven't bought a damn thing.  I think all I'm going to do is place an order for the new Winter Village set and call it a day. 

 

Since the coupon no longer works, I have no deadline.  It's not a use-it-or-lose-it scenario.  Double points will come again, even if it's 3 or 4 months from now.  Nothing I'm interested in is going to retire before then, so I have no rush and no need.  I'm much better off waiting for a really good sale, like last year's B-Wing, than settling for 10% off my next order.

 

Building the Vampyre Castle now.  It's awesome!

Lame.  Exo looks delightfully complex but I have no desire for it.  Woulda dropped the scratch on a Portal and mini store sets in a heartbeat though.

It should be mandatory that Cuusoo projects should be based on something. If it was the powerloader from Aliens then we would talk!

I disagree.  Just about the only thing I respect about Cuusoo anymore is that it doesn't have to be some licensed property and that any really good design can make it.  I do like the design of the mech.  Had it come out in a line like Galaxy Force, it would be on my buy list.  Cuusoo will be wait-and-see, as it's often more expensive for less bricks.  Also, while it's a very nice mech, there are lots of mechs already.  It's hard to get excited over this, even though it's well done.

That said, that's about the only thing I respect.  Yet again, a choice that has wide appeal and would sell a bucket of sets gets rejected for vague reasons.  (I didn't watch the video this time -- too frustrating.)  Why bother getting people's hopes up if you're just going to pull the rug out?

 

And, while I do respect the idea that non-licensed sets stand a chance, c'mon guys.  Portal anything vs. no-name mech.  That's not even a contest.  It would be one thing if the Portal set was lame, but it wasn't. 

 

Lego Cuusoo is a giant waste of time and a great big disappointment.

Yeah, I'm down for non-licensed Cuusoo sets.  I'd buy the female scientists set, Mars Rover, the modular buildings, etc.  They just have to be original and cool to justify the hike in price.

I love Lego but never followed Cuusoo or took the time to learn what exactly it is. Just from what people have written here for awhile is seems like it's potential has been replaced with frustration.

It's basically an illusion that customer input and feedback is being taken into account by Lego. I mean, I can get why some of the licensed sets never see the light of day but some are just baffling as to why they're overlooked.

Then you've also got the situations like Back to the Future where the production model varies pretty widely from the voted version. I'd imagine the mech is going to be heavily modified for the sales version. There's just way too many unique elements in that set as it is for it to be produced exactly that way.

I don't see how the shops loose out on this. Sure, dump the brand names, I don't really care if my coffee shop is Starbucks or not, but it seems there should be huge demand for these.
The Ghostbusters sets or the Oz set would also both be great, and neither seems that it would be hard to acquire a license for. Ghostbusters seems very similar to BttF, and with a few changes (primarily changing the ruby slippers to silver) there would be no license required to make the road to Oz because the Oz books are in the public domain.

I don't understand that one either.  To me it would have been perfect to make a $30 LEGO Store set.  Don't need a license or anything.

 

It seems to me that LEGO is looking into what fans want, then in the future make sets similar to the Cuusoo sets but won't have to pay out 1%.

 

And I like how LEGO one minute will go "Cuusoo can't have printed pieces and a ton of new molds" and yet releases a BttF set with all kinds of new printed pieces.  Doesn't even match what they tell us.

 

I understand Zelda never being made, that's probably a Nintendo legal thing.  But it's like they just blew right over Portal without trying.  Even a "The death of humans is against our motto" lie LEGO throws out all the time would have been nice.

 

And what's the point of doing sets in quarterly reviews when you do 3/4 of a year in one day?

 

Cuusoo = HUGE failure.

This Zelda set is on the verge of getting 10k. The creator says they are willing to give up their 1% off the sales and have it put towards the hair/hat/ears mold that would need to be created. That seems like the big thing that is holding back any Zelda set.

I can't understand why they passed on Portal. Didn't Valve even promote it on their Facebook page? Was it the printed tiles that held it back?

Dan Aykroyd would give approval in a New York minute. Anything to keep the Ghostbusters name relevant or at least in the public eye.  It's a dormant brand and would be win-win for both sides.

 

I think the whole process is 95% arbitrary.  Anything they don't want to bother with they just hide behind "licensing issues."  

 

I think the LEGO Store modular is a no brainer.  There's no reason that even needs 10k votes.

I think Zelda is more Nintendo issue than new molds issue.

 

BttF set has several special printed pieces, it was made.  Portal wasn't because LEGO didn't want it.

Yeah, Nintendo already has a deal with Knex for Mario Kart.  As long as they're partnered up, Zelda Cuusoo is never gonna happen.
