With the new Castle sets I want to rebuild my fantasy Castle, such a fun theme. And of course now I really wish I got the Market set and farm sets, would have been a lot of fun for a display.

Found a Creator Wreath bag and Republic Attack Cruiser bag at Walmart for $3.47. Debating if I should go back and grab them.

Another Walmart still has a Quinjet for $49. I just have no interest in that set outside of the minifigs.

My local Target has prices and pegs out for Series 9, but none to be found. No polybags to be found either.

Ran to Boscov's, a local department store, and they had the PotC Mill for like $36.14 or something. I don't remember what the original retail was, but Boscov's has a habit of marking up their toys because otherwise they'd make no profit on them. My local Boscov's and one across town both have a ton of the Harry Potter polybags though, still at $3.99.

I think retail for the mill was $49.99, I picked up a few at K-Mart for around $20.

My kids get the Lego kids club mag but it never has any coupons in it. I did get a regular Lego catalog in Jan. though that had a 10% off coupon. Nothing for Feb. so far.

The Lego Magazine doesn't have the coupons, the catalogs do, and they seem to come every other month, depends on the time of year.

I finally broke down and bought the weathertop set at Kmart for $45 after coupon and SYWR. I figured it wasn't going to get any cheaper and it's sold out from all the stores I've been to.

How is the set? I really want one, but it's still $60 everywhere around here.

Judging from stock in my area as well, there are approximately 7 X-Wings left I can get to easily, and 2 Millennium Falcons. Sadly I don't see either set dropping in price near here anytime soon.

The city starter set looks very old school. I have neen building some older city sets (6472 6571 6598) and those new vehicles look very remiscent of the older ones.

Impulse bought the Fire Station (not Brigade) for $78 - reward CC points from amazon. Sigh, I'm weak...

Those new sets are pretty nice. Love the monster truck.

So I finished the Fire Brigade set the other day. My first collector/modular set. The set is simply stunning. Unfortunately I'm hooked and I'm going to have to get more of these. Guess I'll go with Grand Emporium since that's the oldest that's still available. I can't wait to get the Palace Theater.

This is going to sound backwards but this set for $150 ($120 on sale) really makes it stand out how overpriced all the licensed sets are. Any of the other sets in the $100-$120 range just can't compare. I spent that on the Friends Riding Camp & the Millenium Falcon and it's just apples and oranges. The design and build quality are off the charts.

So if anyone hasn't tried out one of these sets and are considering one of the licensed sets in the $100-$120 range, drop the extra scratch and go for one of the modulars instead. You will not be disappointed.

Lastly, Fire Brigade is probably on the chopping block with the new Palace set coming out. It's the oldest modular still out there and $120 is well worth it.

I refuse to spend over $50 on a set. Stupid rule I know because some of the $100-$150 sets have 10 times the pieces as a $50 set, but in my mind it makes sense. :lol:

It's crap, there are pictures around. It's really odd looking, like something a little kid would make from random pieces.

Found it!
Bottom left is a GS mech and bottom right is the tree house. I wish they just take the Friends tree house and changed it up a little.

Not really. I'll just buy a few polybags, there is $10. Bought a Werewolf (awesome set) ad XMen, that's another $28. Bought 5 sets from Yoyo, that was $76.

I just don't have the room for all these Legos anymore.

What are the chances that the Lego Minecraft set stays in stock until Friday?

Or should I just bite the bullet and buy it now?

I absolutely love that new Creator house! The set seems to come furnished and I'm particularly pleased with its design. This will definitely be a double purchase for me.

I was lucky enough to get the Hillside house for $40 as that set is now discontinued. Maybe one day I'll decide to build all my Creator houses and have them displayed.

The NYC Toy Fair starts soon, within a week. That means we get even better pictures, from more websites, and they will be in English with American prices.

I'm on the verge of selling my Star Destroyer and Cafe Corner. They are both great sets...but I could buy so many of even the more expensive sets by just giving up those 2. I still need the Grand Emporium, Pet Shop, and Passenger Train all of which have to be near end of life. My Yoyo deal never went through so I missed my shot at Helm's Deep for a not ridiculous price. Now the Cinema is coming out and that is a must get as well.
