I found a prisoner transport for $5.98 at Target earlier. Also went to the TRU minibuild for Jek's fighter. Searched for Mr Gold at both stores and of course came up empty. I'd like to say that I am giving up but I know every time I see S10 I'll probably be checking. Oh yeah my wife found of the Friends horse trailer sets for $4.99 at Target. Earlier in the week I went to the Lego SW minibuild and got the holocron droid.

I picked up another B-Wing at the Lego Store, I couldn't help it. There were was a pretty big group before opening, I would say at least 20 people. The girl said they only had 90 sets and went through half in about an hour. Not to single out anybody but the Asians were in full force, I saw one guy buy 10 sets.


lol, I wasn't at mine =P

Whoa! Just got home and heard about the B-Wing. Shop at home had for sale -- I don't really care how long it takes to get here. Free shipping, free minifigure, and $15 off from VIP rewards. That's awesome!

I have had my eye on this set for awhile now. If you've seen it built in the store, it's really quite something. Glad I waited, and glad they let you order it even if it's not in stock.

Thanks for the heads up. I went and grabbed one after missing out this morning.

AWD Ninjago Samurai Mech for $26.77. It's been 29.99 before, but this is a good price + free shipping and possibly no tax.

It's been in the $26-$28 range about 5 times now. It's a great sale. And the golden minifigures is better than Mr Gold.

I took my son to the TRU build on Saturday also, they let us both build! My piece came from Lego- the one missing from the minecraft set.

I placed my order for the B-Wing at 12:02 AM on May 4th. Now I get an e-mail saying it won't ship for a while.

Not real happy about it, because my order should have been one of the first in the system. Oh well, not much I can do about it I guess.

Does it have to be the Iron Man from the Quinjet set? Is that one different/special for some reason? Because if you just want Iron Man, between the IM3 sets and the Loki Escape you can get it much cheaper.


Doesn't have to be that particular Iron Man, I just know a bunch of people were picked up the Quinjet cheap. I think I may just grab one of the IM3 sets. Target knocked a few bucks off (at least online) from a few super hero sets, if anyone cares.

Yeah the "Extremis boat attack" set is $18, my buddy demonchylde picked it up and it's pretty damn nice, not to mention Iron Man PLUS War Machine, talk about a win. And the Extremis guy can pass for a zombie so there's that...

The giveaway Iron Man that comes with the drone is Mark VII which is in the Loki's Escape set. The Quinjet one is Mark VI. VI has the circle on the chest while VII has the triangle. I have little interest in the Quinjet but it is the only way to get Mark VI and Black Widow. Hopefully I find it on clearance.

You could save money and just buy the minifigs by themselves via ebay, amazon, bricklink, etc. Or buy the quinjet set, keep the figures and sell everything else online.

I'd wait for the inevitable clearance on them at various stores. I picked them up for $23.98 each IIRC during the winter Target clearance.

I'm more likely to just buy the superhero mini-figs I want from eBay at this point. I like the mini-figs, but the overall sets really don't impress me at all.

That was my plan because I think the sets are all pretty third-rate, but I'm having issues tracking down the minis at a reasonable price.

Exactly! Maybe the figures will come down in price overtime, but right now they are so expensive it's hard not to justify just buying the sets. Hulk is going for $20 and Black Widow for $15. Hopefully a nice coupon comes along as I'd rater just buy Hulk's Breakout for $35/40 and get the additional figures then pay $20 for him by himself.

It looks like people have made some money just buying sets and breaking the pieces up.

I sometimes think about just buying minifigures but often it's easier to find a deal on the set where no matter how junky it is, the price is right for Lego pieces.

The Superhero sets I seem to actually like are the Batman vs. Bane set, the Spider-cycle set, and the Loki set with the truck. Otherwise they just don't impress me much, but if I really find them on the cheap I may grab them.

Got an email back from Lego stating that while my B-Wing is on back order, I will still receive the Han Solo mini-figure (which they are apparently shipping today or tomorrow).

If you are near a Fred Meyer the Hulk set is 34.99. So is the Teo Face set. Last eeek there was a 10% off coupon so I picked up the Hulk set. Saw a sign for theBatplane set with the Joker for 24.99 but there aren't any in stock at the stores by me.

My B-wing from TRU arrived today... open. Anyone else who ordered one, could I ask a favor? I need a bag breakdown to see if I'm missing anything(don't want to ship back if I don't need to, and I'm not ready to put it together yet). Here's what I have and how they're labled:

Yesterday I went to two separate toy stores, one TRU, one Walmart, one KMart, one Target, and NONE of them had ANY series minifigs. I'm not even so interested in series 10, I can't even find series 9!

Anyway tonight I thought I would try my luck at a separate Walmart and another Target. The Walmart didn't have squat, and the Target did have series 10. I bought 13 of them blindly, and wasn't too disappointed in what I got.

Overall though, I am not too impressed with Series 10. I also finally got the Orc Forge for the first time. I had been searching for it for a while, and was glad to get it, even at MSRP.

There is a mom and pop toy store in the mall I work at that is having a 40% off liquidation sale on everything including their big lego selection. I was about to drop some serious money in there but then I noticed the prices were marked up worse that TRU. $20 sets were $26-27. Ugh I would have bought so much otherwise. I'll have to keep my eye out for further drops.

The B-Wing I ordered from Lego, which wasn't going to ship until the 16th, shipped yesterday. Sweet!

My B-wing from TRU arrived today... open.


TRU is a horrible company, but this is one of those times when they have decent customer service.

Call them or send them an email (if you don't want to talk to them). I ordered the Winter Cottage from them, and when it arrived, it looked like it had been dropped from a great height. I would have been pissed if it was a gift for someone else.

So I sent them an email. Within 2 days, I got an email promising me a 10% credit back, and this was delivered within a week.

It's worth doing, even if you don't care about the condition of the box, because it sends the message that they need to be concerned about the condition of the items they sell. Plus, I think if you get AWD quality goods, you should be paying AWD prices.

I got my order placed on Saturday today. Just the vanilla x wing plus the ironman speedboat set. Got the Han and yoda poster too, but what was cool is that they threw in 3 series ten packs and the $20 Chima speedorz set for free! Way cool as I wanted to buy that for my son anyway.
