Picked up a Gandalf polybag


Is it the same minifig that comes in the sets? I couldn't see a difference so I didn't buy it the other day.

I'm sure it's been said before, but this year's Amazon Cyber/BF lighting LEGO deals have sucked. For the last three years, I was able to score at least three good 40% off sets. Amazon had a Creator house every year until now. What gives?

I thought for sure we'd see some AC Motherships at least...

The Mothership was about 35-40% ($38-39) for at least a month. AWD had it for $35 for two weeks. Just recently the price went back up to normal.

I've been watching it, it's the last set I needed in the theme.

But when you buy a minifigure on Brinklink, does it include its weapons?



It will say in their caption if they include it or not.

Still, a Uruk-hai for 1.70ish is not too bad (the one with the long hair and no armor).

Throw in one of those pikes for 17cents and you have a soldier for under 2 bucks.

The review of series 9 minifigures...
http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=76075

Honestly that "review" is a joke. I think they get a box from LEGO so they have to say good things. Eurobricks is so far up LEGO's ass, "I think it's great that LEGO listened to us and only gave us two complete series per box". WTF?

This is my problem with LEGO forums, they are either done by children, or by people who think LEGO can't do anything wrong. It's why I just stick to here and Toys and Bricks.

Finding those 6 figures that only have 2 in each box is going to suck.

Parents that buy these by just picking at random are going to be pissed when their kids keep getting Cyclops and the Alien. LEGO needs to keep the CMF as 3 full sets in a box to balance everything.

There will be 3 complete sets per box, just not year.

I have noticed the last 2-3 series that the numbers in the box change over the course of the 4 months they are out. So the ones that have only two will have three or even four in the next batch.

I actually think LEGO does this to screw with people buying the whole box before they can get more boxes out.

That site is utter shit anyway. The mods suck and totally harness discussion to a point that it doesn't actually ever get interesting. Their servers also blow as often threads don't even load. In general a real shit show.

I know, I was banned years ago. I was like member 30 to join. It used to be good place to chat because they weren't on LEGO's side, they were on the hobby's side. That changed real when it became a website with hundreds of people. All the mods joined together and if you said anything that was against their power at all, they would warn you.

Huw from Brickset is the same way. Somehow they all think that running a toy site makes them god is beyond me. :lol:

On a related note - the Galaxy Squad polybags shown over at toysnbricks are going to be great for army building. Hope we see those here in the States.

I agree Broseph, I think series 9 looks awesome. I'm definitely picking up a box of these guys. I'm drooling at the knights for army building!

The Heroic Knight is easily my favorite (he's a perfect fit for my MOC's on the book series "the Belgariad" by David Eddings).


But I must confess, apart from the knight, the Chicken Suit guy is the best of the group. Along with the Santa Clause and the Bunny Suit guy, he's right at the cream of the crop of all the series minifigs, IMO.

The Policeman is pretty sweet. I love his hat and detailed torso.
The judge is pretty awesome as well.
The forest maiden has a cool hairpiece.


My least favorite is probably the Hollywood Starlet, although I love the accessory she comes with.

However it did seem very much as if he was trying to suck the intestines out of TLG, because his head is so far up their butt. There is little to no "honest critique" in the review. Plus the poor English makes it almost unreadable.

Ordered a Star Wars advent calendar over the weekend since they were 50% off and my son really wanted one.

Series 9 look great, gonna get a full set of course. They're making up for a lackluster rehash/retooled series 8. Since they are listed for January release we may actually see them at TRU mid month.

I stick with here and Toys and Bricks. They tell me all the sales, when sets are out and new pictures.

Speaking of which you can preorder TMNT sets now, the pricing is just silly.

I think a cop isn't needed, but he does have a cool hat. But that brings me to my point of fact checking by the reviewer...

Furthermore, I don't really recall seeing nice navy blue policemen in LEGO. It is always 'black' uniform.


The best Police uniforms ever, besides this year's cool park ranger ones I still need to get a few of and new year's squad ones, are the ones from World City... which are navy blue. Te World City one only looks slightly less realistic than the new one, but printing back then wasn't as good as it is today.

Like you said the review makes no sense...

We have now heard and seen rumoured news of a potential Series 11 where we have not even seen confirmed images of Series 10. This goes to prove that the LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series will just end in Series 10. All I can do, is to continuing hoping for their continuation of this theme, so more new inspirational potential discoveries may appear through the magical wonders of the LEGO Collectable Minifigure Series theme!


That doesn't even make sense! We have the CGI images of official series 11 mini figures, the pieces were found in some official LEGO database of parts, but because we haven't seen series 10 that means the them is ending? :roll:

Based on the complete new data which I have complied, I have drafted my basic analysis based on my own take. Buying 1 full complete MISB box will allow you to achieve 2 maximum complete unique sets. By far, even with the low possibility of completing an additional complete set, this is actually the best news ever to see such a distribution coming true. It is just like a dream and the entire feeling is as if TLG is listening to our thoughts and taking it into careful consideration.


Yes! Lego making it harder to get a complete set is them listening to us, caring for us, loving us to death. Making it harder to find a complete set is Lego listening to us? That's insane.

Picked up my Wal-mart Site to Store Desert Skiff and LOTR Shelob today. The line was 8 deep and employees were MIA. I was about to swear it off and just have the damned things shipped from now on...

...when I went by the Lego aisle before leaving, just in case. This Wal-mart never has anything good and today it's a little messy. That's when I notice I'm looking at a POTC London Escape. That can't be current.

Price check? $20. I go back and see if there's anything else. Hey, it's a Creator Lighthouse. Also $20. Score.

lol... Who ever made the comment on Amazon and Lego deals was spot on, absolute crap. They had a few lightning deals on BF that I couldn't get to (birth of my son) while I was in the hospital.

They have been on a Megablock craze all week long though, my Lego spending surprisingly hasn't been to much this Holiday season, Ewok Attack, Spongebob Bikini Bottom Party & Hoth Echo Base.

I couldn't agree more.Last year I bought a bunch of Lego sets from Amazon.On Black Friday
I got the POTC London Escape for $24.99(was $49.99),Cyber Monday I got the Imperial Flagship for $149($179) and in December I picked up Mill Village Raid $49.99($69.99) and King's Carriage Ambush $29($39.99) that were great deals and this year all I have so far is the Star War Desert Skiff $14.99 from Black Friday.

Anyone know where I can find Mass Effect themed custom sets or instructions? I'd love to build a Mako or Normandy, and I've found some that people have built. But, I can't find instructions or brick lists anywhere. I found an okay Normandy on ebay, but it's not very detailed and $50. Any help would be appreciated!!!

I took my trains out of the box my mom shoved them in after last Christmas and I never had time to see how badly she stored them. I only have the train on display for Christmas because I have no room or no time.

Badly. I'm missing dozens of pieces to the Holiday Train. Pretty much only the Engine and the toy car, and the tree car are missing a few small pieces you can't notice.

So what have we learned children? Keep your parents away from your LEGOs no matter the age. :lol:
