Considering going to the lego store in discover mills soon to look at their creator (the um.. pet store and theater type) sets. Or am i better off waiting for a TRU sale?


TRU has been excluding the exclusives from almost all of their sales recently. I wouldn't count of them.

If any one is looking for the Jabba Palace it will cease production in 2014 due the racist claims.

Funny thing is it would have been retired near then anyways. Lego is just saying that to get them off their back.

CMF Series 10 review is up on eurobrick. http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=80676.

Good news: Roman Commander and Baseball Player have 6 in a box which is great for army/team building. Bad news: 6 figs come only 2 to a box. I hated this in S9 but got very lucky somehow.

^ that better be an April Fools day joke. What fucking bullshit. Lego would have stopped making them anyways around the time.

Lego keeps it up with these stupid numbers and Ill be saving lots of time.

Didn't get a chance to get over to my Barnes and Noble. I probably should have, last time I was there they still had a Jedi Shuttle I could have tried to get for cheap.

I thought that mini Republic Frigate only came with Star Wars purchases that totaled $75 or more?

Your Toys R Us carries those sets?

If you haven't started buying them yet, I suggest buying them in release order since they do retire those sets. The oldest one out there is the Fire Brigade followed by the Grand Emporium, Pet Shop, Town Hall, and Palace Cinema, in that order.

Even not on sale the sets are amazing. I just converted $150 in BB gift cards and RZ certs to Amazon Kindle cards over the wekend so I can finally order the Grand Emporium. I'm hesitant though, cause I know as soon as I pull the trigger it'll drop $25 on sale.

I myself am having trouble holding back the urge to blow my income tax return on the modular buildings. I probably won't, if only because that money could be put towards my student loans I should really start paying off.

I've been waiting around for the last two months for the Grand Emporium to go down but I don't think it's gonna happen until Christmas. I'm pulling the trigger on it tonight.

A friend of mine last I knew didn't want to get married either.

It's not that I don't want to, I just don't think I will and see no big deal with it. I can love someone without marriage.

I think it should be banned because listening to the Supreme Court cases last week the whole issue was based on the word "marriage" itself. So why not just ban marriage for everyone and come out with a new legal document called "majukio" and let straight and gays marry. lol

Does anyone have the big Avengers ship? I can get it from yoyo.com for $44 (with new credit card info and the new customer code), but I have never seen it on display and don't know how big it is. Plus at some point I feel it will get a rerelease, and maybe with more of the characters. I really dislike also having to spend $20 for Hawkeye and $50 for a bad Hulk.

I have the Quinjet and its pretty big IMO. I was expecting it to be smaller but was quite happy with it once it was built. At $44 I think it is a steal, especially with 4 major character minifigs. If it were to get a rerelease it wouldn't be until Avengers 2 come out and if it doesn't play a part in the movie it probably won't get remade.

Not that I'm aware of. I meant an online TRU sale.

If you haven't started buying them yet, I suggest buying them in release order since they do retire those sets. The oldest one out there is the Fire Brigade followed by the Grand Emporium, Pet Shop, Town Hall, and Palace Cinema, in that order.

Even not on sale the sets are amazing. I just converted $150 in BB gift cards and RZ certs to Amazon Kindle cards over the weekend so I can finally order the Grand Emporium. I'm hesitant though, cause I know as soon as I pull the trigger it'll drop $25 on sale.

I can't say how many times i've kicked myself for not buying the cafe or green grocer when i saw them in the lego store in the schaumburg/chicago mall (name of mall eludes me). Not once, but twice. TWICE I visited up there, saw them and debated and twice I went all practical and told myself no.

Was thinking of heading to lawrenceville all day until i got in the car and heard the traffic reports. basketball and baseball pretty much blew up atlanta traffic, so it'll have to wait till later this week.

Availability online is always iffy when there is a sale on those particular sets, they are usually first to go oos or not available for shipping online. As much as I like the modular buildings I didn't want to get into them. I felt so relieved when I sold me Green Grocer earlier this year. The one I do want is this one, I can have the satisfaction of the first five for almost half the price of one.

I really like the Fire Brigade and Palace Cinema sets, but I also really want the Sith Interceptor from The Old Republic. I intend to get only one with my return and put the rest towards my student loans.

I'm a little afraid to get into the modulars myself. They look like a lot of fun to build, and really the retail prices aren't that bad for what you get.

Not to oversell it but the modulars have sections or some "set piece" that you'll build with backwards pieces, upside down, and just used in the most obscure way and sit back and think, damn, this designer is a mad genius.

I only have the Fire Brigade(the station address is a work of art), but I've read reviews on the others that mention a similar thing.

Yeah it's tough getting the modular ones on TRU sale. They usually are not included or mysteriously go out of stock right before the sale happens. I have only successfully done it once when I was able to grab 2 Fire Brigades during a b1g1 50% off and that was a while ago.

They really are beautiful sets though. As horribly expensive as they are they look amazing when finished and the amount of detail put into them is crazy.

I don't think they're too too expensive. Compared to the licensed sets, they're a pretty good price.

I really like that Haunted House too, which they're apparently still making.

Voting opened up for Toys n Bricks contest. I submitted the Little Mermaid entry. If any wants to vote for it that would be great. I doubt I will win because some of the entries have a lot of votes already. Thanks if you do vote.

^I'll give you all my three points. :lol:

Some of those came out really nice, it's kind of shocking. In past contests the entries were crap. :)

I thought I could trick Yoyo into giving me another 30% off new customer by using my Amazon credit card and my grandparents shipping address. No luck. No Avengers ship for me.

LEGO has come out and says they are not retiring Jabba's Palace based on the racial issues but rather because they were planning on stopping it then. Good for them to continue to stick up for it.

It's not a LEGO designed set! If you have an issue with it call George Lucas or Disney, or better yet don't buy the fucking thing.

Fools... they will be the downfall of humanity.

(I've put up with a lot of stupidity today, and I still have to do my taxes.)

Well I dragged my feet for too long picking up Jabba's Palace at Walmart for $96. Sunday night there were at least five sets at my nearest store. Then that stupid fucking "report" and poof. All gone. I'm now resigned to having to pay MSRP. I got no one to blame but myself since they were that price for awhile.

lol Lego played their cards right. Cause now they can keep producing them for the rest of the year, since it's not retiring til 2014. And everyone will snatch it up cause they think it'll be rare.

Well played, Lego. Well played.

It's been $88 or so on Amazon for awhile.

Except now it seems.

AWD has some new Chima sets and a Rancor pit for $48.
