Anyone knew what happened to this set?

They probably heard about you complaining over the overpriced Lego City sets =P, did they release any other set with a police heli?

Blasphemy! It doesn't have a proper gatehouse! Yellow Castle is the best castle ever made!!

Or at least that's what you would get on EB :lol:


Huw at Brickset is the same, he actually thinks the 2013 Castle looks like the yellow castle. They don't even have the same look at all.

"It bears more than a passing resemblance to the very first minifig castle, 375, doesn't it!"

NO IT DOESN'T! :lol:

The overpriced bit was on the 2013 sets, not the 2012. :booty:

And nope, not like that.

Holiday Train
http://brickset.com/...il/?set=10173-1


I remember seeing this at the Lego store years ago but at that time I was only getting a few creator sets here and there and wasn't into collecting Lego like I am now. This is one of those sets I really wish I picked up. These are insanely high on the secondary market now. I am hoping that one day we'll either get a modified re-release or a new holiday train all together.

Just because I can't brag that often....

I got it for $45, it was half off at LEGO S@H. ;)

It's the one set my mom likes, it goes under her tree ever Christmas. I think they should make a new one, trains sell well, and then have the holiday village set be a train station.

Anyone in the northeast USA buying LEGOs for the blizzard of the last three years? It already feels like the press for the, it's not that bad flu season, over hyped to death. It's a Friday, the worst part will be Friday night, and maybe 1-3 feet in areas, but it will be cleared up really quickly.

Just picked up the Desert Skiff for $18.00 on Amazon.


I'm thinking about ordering it when I get paid tomorrow. It looks like a nice little set, and I really want a Boba Fett minifig.

Will probably check Target for the Chima polybags tomorrow too.

Spoke with somebody at Lego and they said the Minecraft set is still being made.

The skiff is surprisingly large... I think it's like 9 or 10 inches long. Plus you get boba fett and 3 other decent minifigs :) The way they handled the sarlaac is cute too - would have liked it a little larger, but i won't complain!

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.


I'm new to these sets but Fire Brigade has been out since 2009. Looking at release dates you have:

2009 Fire Brigade
2010 Grand Emporium
2011 Pet Shop
2012 Town Hall
2013 Palace Theater

If, roughly, 4 years of availability is the norm, you still have time on Grand Emporium since Fire Brigade still hasn't really been discontinued yet.

Then again, I'm just guessing. I'm just gonna make sure I grab GE next.

Nice. I have had some nice clearance scores like that but just not in a while, especially in the Lego department.
The reason I want the train is exactly what you stated, for under the Christmas tree. And great idea about using the village for the station. Right before last Christmas I had some store credit and my wife wanted a holiday set. I left it up to her tp pick between the cottage and the post office. She picked the cottage, which I do like, but regret not getting the post office too. When we were at this months mini build a couple days ago I saw a couple folks walk out with holiday sets and I got excited thinking I might score a post office but no dice, all they had were a couple cottages left. Now that I think about it I probably should've picked one up to sell or trade towards a post office, bakery or toy shop.

I picked up the skiff from Amazon a couple weeks ago when it first hit the $18 price point. had been waiting on a good deal on that one for a while. Its the only Star Wars set I have. Put it together at work and now is sits a top my cubicle. I love this set, just wish it had a way of attaching Boba to the Sarlacc tentacles and some more clear pieces so the skiff could sit higher above the Sarlacc

Orient Expedition A new millennium classic.
http://brickset.com/detail/?Set=7417-1


Ahh, that reminds me, I got a large amount of LEGO at a yard sale over the summer. Appears to have every Orient Expedition set(except the fortress). I love the 3 silly looking monsters in those sets. I really really need to go through it sometime and see how complete they are. Hard to get motivated going through that big of a random pile of stuff though...

I haven't seen any one mention the two new Lego movies coming out:

Lego Batman: The Movie Dc Superheroes Unite with Clark Kent / Superman Minifigure (http://www.amazon.co...rds=lego batman)

Lego Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back with Darth Vader with Medal Minifigure (http://www.walmart.c...gurine/22907069)

The trailer for the Lego Batman movie looks like it may just be scenes from Lego Batman 2. Empire Strikes Back was pretty good. The Padawan Menace was funnier, but Empire Strikes Back was a better show.

I also noticed these browsing around the Barnes and Noble website:
76008: Iron Man vs. The Mandarin: Ultimate Showdown http://www.barnesand...an=673419200370
76007: Super Heroes Iron Man: Malibu Mansion Attack http://www.barnesand...an=673419190459
76006: Super Heroes Iron Man: Extremis Sea Port Battle http://www.barnesand...an=673419190442

I'm not impressed with...any of them. I want the War Machine and...that's about it.
Edit: Mandarin looks like Hagrid from Harry Potter (http://brickset.com/minifigs/?m=hp111)

Sounds like you have something to share with us. Someone was having fun in the 80s.

What if a guy had long hair naturally? Are we following The Bible's views?

Does not even nature teach you that when a man has grown his hair, it is a disgrace to him? - Corinthians 11:14

Good thing Jesus had short hair... oh wait... :lol:

Anyways... I have all of Orient Expedition besides one of the sets with the monster. Oddly enough I saw it on my mom's floor so I figured I would get it for Easter, never did. Only set I didn't get for 75% off.

And the temple set is stunning, that would be my sixth set I'd keep. :)

The Iron Man boat isn't bad, the rest are bland.

Buy spending / buying crap from S@H often!

From brickset....

Update 2 : We've been told by the folks at LEGO that not every VIP member will get one of these key chains - only "the most active and engaged VIP members based on a list of criteria including purchase frequency". So fingers crossed !


I'll gladly not buy things from LEGO and not get a free keychain with the money I'm saving.

Lego can kiss my ass, for the past few years the company has been run by the biggest tightwad ever. I used to frequent the Lego store on a weekly to bi-weekly basis but after there sales and prices went to shit I try and hold out for clearance.

EDIT:I found this on T&B

I guess this is what happened to all the Imperial Shuttles and Daigon Alleys on Amazon....

That's what I call "Loser". There are Lego "fans" that spend more money in a year on LEGO than I make.

What really gets me is why would I bother buying from LEGO when there is Amazon? A new set comes out on Amazon and it's 10% off and has free shipping.

Why waste my money on Lego when the package from TN takes 20 days to show up at my house in worse shape than Amazon warehouse Deals? it's such a joke. I ordered all the time, I went to the LEGO Stores anytime I was near Boston. Now I don't bother, they have nothing in stock, and they have no "exclusive" sets for less than $150 dollars.

The last thing I bought from them was 5 PQ minifigure packs that were $3.50 instead of $15. Too good a deal to pass. But why would I waste $7 on shipping to get a free helicopter when I can order the same things on Amazon for cheaper and buy the helicopter at Target in November?

xycury and scp89, how much do you guys spend at the lego store? Just curious to see what it takes.

That's actually my favorite part of going through a lot, sorting the parts and then putting sets together. It does take a while to sort though.

Legend of Zelda sets would get my money no questions asked, especially if they're Ocarina of Time sets.

Probably ordering the Skiff tomorrow, but I'm getting it from Walmart.com instead to save on shipping.

My order history for 2012 below

I only bought during sales, or getting a freebie (Hulk & Monster fighters were the last ones). I may have bought a few things for holidays as you can tell. I try to get free shipping and double VIP points. Only time I paid for shipping were a few times, and tried to keep it around 20 so it was another 4.95.

I do not have a lego store near me so this is all shop.lego.com. There is one in Milwaukee but way too far to drive... but will plan a special trip.

I guess I did buy some MASSIVE exclusives, Joust set and the Haunted house.

I don't have any other place that sells Lego, Targets are small, nothing more than the standard 4 - 5 core themes, and Toys R us sucks donkey balls and never have any "good" sets. They don't have exclusives, nor any of the good ones like the >$150 sets (Green Grocer, ect).

They might say I earned 2108, but I know half of that were from double VIP points, so I could see maybe spending half of that. Oh, the "double line" sets are lego 'doublin' the points, not like I'd get 2 Joust (I do want a 2nd though) and 2 MBA kits.

I guess I ordered about 8 times through the year.

Honestly I wasn't banking on getting one... but... Surprise! The card is hanging on my fridge. it's cute but it's just advertisement. no coupons (I wish, it would be a first!)
