Shake my head, ToysRUs. Last night I saw ToysRUs had the buy 1, get 1 1/2 off starting. They put up the banners on their site but it wasn't active yet because I placed Batmobile vs. Two Face ($49.99) and The Bat vs. Bane in my cart ($39.99) but it didn't take half off (total before any discount would have been about $90). I figured, oh well, I'll just leave it in my cart and checkout when I get up in the morning. Oh no, that's not the case today. Batmobile vs. Two Face raised to $64.99 and the Bat vs. Bane raised to $46.99. Unfreakinbelievable. The price, even after the buy one get one 1/2 off is now $88.48. That's a savings of a whopping $1.50.

I really wanted to think ToysRUs had changed their ridiculous Lego pricing ways but clearly they're just as bad as ever (30% markup on Batmobile vs. Two Face!).

My TRU had some series 9! So I bought 20 after feeling every one up. I got 13 of them. I thought I had cyborg bad guy but I guess I mixed up my piles. I also somehow didn't get one of the several police officers I felt! However I didnt feel a single Oscar woman.

So I now have an extra cyclops. Chicken man. Two forest women. And two two face guys.

Hey, I've got a spare cop and the starlet if you want to let go of your forest maidens?

Tried the last box at TRU, and I don't think I found even one :roll:

It took forever to find the Forest Maiden. I must have looked through 3 boxes.

In other news I've been checking the price on the Bug Obliterator every day. I wish I'd pulled the trigger when it was $60. This will be my bug set purchase of the year. I think.

Decided to skip the Flatbed Truck and Spider-cycle sets... No room, and my last paycheck was low because of forgetting to log 8 hours of pay (which is being fixed on the next paycheck).

Finished building Diagon Alley yesterday. I really like the set, minus the fact I still can't apply stickers very well. The crooked columns on the bank are a nice touch.

I'll go back today maybe and see what I can find. But I'd say there was at least 5 forest women, and I bought three. They were easy to find, they are oval shields without the lip that the waiter has on his tray.

You've probably seen it already but the Brandenburg Gate has been on sale on Amazon for 22.99 for a while. I grabbed one since I don't have any of the architecture sets, but I haven't bothered to build it yet.

I built the Pet Shop over the weekend. It is pretty awesome with a lot of little details. From the classic Brownstone style building to the working crawl space/basement area. I did actually have a missing piece though, the first time I can remember that happening to me with Lego. a medium sized white [ piece was missing. I can see what they did, the small version if it had an extra. Fortunately I had a spare I was able to insert so I don't need to bother with waiting for Lego to mail me a replacement.

Essentially what they're doing is temporarily marking up the online prices to match their in-store prices. Normally, it's only the in-store prices that get the big markup. The online prices have generally been MSRP, at least lately.

I guess they figured they couldn't actually give us an actual discount on the product, that would be absurd! ;)

Damn, I saw the Mining trucks last week at a couple of Tuesday Mornings, but no sign of any minifigs. The Wal-Mart clearance of $15 Mining trucks was a much better price post-Christmas anyway.

Hi everyone.Me and my son just started to collect lego and we are building a lego city on an old train layout i had.Does anyone know of a good place to get road plates for a decent price?I need alot of them.Thanks for any suggestions.

^ :lol:

Cheap road plates! That's a good one!

:lol:

Honestly, a few years ago LEGO jacked the price up 300% ($15 for two) and made it so you can't get two straight road plates anymore, you get a straight and a curved and a T and an +. Your best, cheapest, bet is to buy some regular baseplates ($5 for one) and some plywood and paint. It really sucks, but there is no such thing as cheap road plates anymore, plus I think the only place that sells them is LEGO itself.



I went to TRU, no more forest women, but got all the minifigures I need besides the Oscar woman. If I track down more forest women (and they aren't on a jet ski) I'll be willing to trade, or be bought.

And Amazon is the best place for Architecture. Sydney Opera House is 25% off, the other building is mentioned. Plus AMD has a few up too. I just bought the little mining dump truck and bobcat for $12.89 for AMD. Plus I signed up for an Amazon credit card. My first one! :)

They were. I have a "Legends" set (It's a remake on an old set) on Main Street and it had two buildings and two baseplates.

I might be wrong, but I don't think there is a single set coming out that is even on a baseplate, besides the $150 exclusive cinema, which is on a rare red one. Even the Fire Station is on building plates. The last set I remember being on a baseplate is the big $100 Police Station from a year or two back.

Kids now want cars and monster trucks and just vehicles, they don't really want buildings and LEGO wants to save money and baseplates are more expensive.

Wood and paint is the way to go, I did it once with old paper over an old table. Much cheaper, can spend more on LEGOs.

If you shop Pick-A-Brick on lego.com you are charged by piece, but if you have a LEGO store near by you are charged $7.99 for a small container and $14.99 for a large container. Keep in mind that lego.com has a much larger selection of pieces than our stores.

The town I attend college in just had a new Giant grocery store open up, and they had Series 9 for $3.00 each. I didn't feel like feeling feeling up the packs while I was there, but for anyone in the northeast looking for them it's always an option to check.

I'm probably going to try and get the whole set of Series 9 at this point. I have half of it already. Also, when I went looking a few weeks ago there were a ton of the starlet in this area, but that forest maiden was a real pain to track down.

As for the Architecture series set, I only seen one retail store that have them on sale every now and then.

Barnes and Noble usually have them 30% off but kinda defeats the "deal" due to the premium markups on Lego.

I think series 7 is sold out. Or I can't find them.


Long shot, but does anyone have any Super Heroes figures for sale/trade?

I should now have 7, and I only really need / want like three...

So maybe. ;)

So people if you want some forest maids or whatever the hell they are called message me and if I keep finding them then I'll send them your way.

It's first come, first serve. 180husher has first dibs because he bought me a Skelly Castle years ago. Then strangelove if he wants to trade something. I need some series 3 women (and 1 and 2, but that's not a fair trade).

So message me. I'll hit up TRU as much as I can (I walk there if the weather is nice) and try to get to the other Target near me sometime next week.
