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.


I got a free Chima starter set. At first I worried they got my order wrong, but it was just a random freebie.

Hey can I get your guys opinions on the Lone Ranger sets.I am thinking about collecting all the sets and I am trying to decide if I should buy them early at retail or wait for sales or clearances.

Question 1: What do you think of the sets in general?
Question 2: What do you think the long term availability will be in stores and online.Will they either sell well or bomb and will they have a short run in stores or be on store shelves for a year like Prince of Persia.


Thanks

So I got an Amazon camel alert email this morning. Apparently the Palace Cinema hit $149 at 4am. I missed it and it's already back to $214.

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


This actually pisses me off a bit. Not at you, but at Lego, since I ordered mine at like 12:05 AM right when the sale went live and it hasn't shipped yet (the Han Solo mini-figure has though).

LEGO for several years now has used a third party shipping company that sucks at shipping. They have no clue what they are doing.

I like The Lone Ranger sets a lot, but I doubt there is any rush to buy them being the movie doens't come out for months.

I noticed that the Walmart app on Android now lists the clearance prices from your local stores. One of my local stores have awesome prices ($20 Quinjets and Batcaves, $70 Millennium Falcon) but sold out in everything. I'm tempted to do a return/rebuy but I feel like that isn't fair to the store.

Yeah, the email I got made me think the B-Wing had shipped, but then I got an email about it being delayed. They had just shipped my Han fig, poster, and this random Chima starter set that I don't want nor need. Guess my friend's kid will like it.

Donate it to Brickset, they have a charity event to raise money for childrens' hospitals.

Following the success of the raffle kevbags ran in September that raised £300 for a children's cancer ward, he's organising another, this time with loads of great hard-to-find LEGO prizes, and with proceeds being distributed to hospitals worldwide:

- Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, UK
- Glasgow York Hill, UK
- Indianapolis Peyton Manning St Vincent, USA
- Canberra Hospital Foundation, Australia.

Tickets cost just £1 (multiple tickets allowed), payment via PayPal to kg323@hotmail.com. Please include your Brickset ID (main site or forum) in the comments and use 'I'm sending money to family or friends' or the 'gift' option so we are not throwing money away on fees.

Anyone can enter -- wherever you are in the world -- but you'll need a PayPal account which means you have to be over 18 (I believe).

Find out more in the forum, and good luck!

I like The Lone Ranger sets. I see them more as excellent Western sets than Lone Ranger. Which is probably a good thing because I really don't see the movie doing well. I suspect it will be like Prince of Persia.

I got my B-Wing in today with that Chima set in it as well, I was confused too. Too bad it wasnt just about any line but Chima. lol. Might have to hold off building it till i move this summer as I have zero display space at the moment.

Oh, don't be. I misread the email. Like you, they just shipped Han Solo and the poster. That's...weird to me. Why would they do that?

Found a fresh-looking end-display of Series 10 at Target. No Mr. Gold. Waste of time looking for him. I don't know if I'll do that again, but how often will I run into relatively fresh displays? I also wonder how fast I could get at identifying blind bags.

I really like the Lone Ranger sets, and I agree with dualedge2 -- they work as excellent Western sets. I don't care about/have no interest in the movie. Given that it's only because of Lego that I even know about it, it doesn't point to it being a big success.

I don't even like Westerns, but I like these sets. I don't want to wait for the Stagecoach -- usually I don't care for vehicles, but this one is terrific and the figures are also, and there are a ton of them.

As for the market, who knows? Will kids like a Western theme or will they pass? I think the sets will appeal to parents and grandparents, but if the movie is a giant bomb, that may affect their purchases, too.

I am waiting for a sale, only because I have no time for Lego right now anyway, so it doesn't matter if I get them now or months from now. So, I'll wait for a decent sale on the small sets and a substantial sale on the bigger ones.

Still haven't seen series 10 anywhere. Target & Meijer are usually my go-tos but they're still flooded with Series 9. My guess is that they have 'em but are waiting to put them out until the 9s disappear.

My bad, I bought LEGO Champion, not Creationary. I had been looking at buying that one too.

I bought LEGO Champion for $11.xx from AWD. 200 pieces, most 2x4 and some micro guys isn't a bad deal to me. Plus I needed some washers and such for a hose, added a LEGO baseplate for the normal price, which is hard to find, and just got over $25. I'm trying to get as many micro guys and all the Heroica sets before they completely disappear. I should have bought them when TRU had a B2G1F sale online months ago.

I like the Lone Ranger stuff too. Though I don't intend to use them as western sets. A bit of modding and the train can go in my city and the same for the mine (be it city or fantasy). The buildings are nice too. I'm not that keen on the stagecoach. It's a great stagecoach but it isn't something I was clamoring for.

They did a far better job on these than the mostly terrible Man of Steel and mediocre Iron Man 3 (Except of course Zamboni Mandarin. Heh.)

Oh, don't be. I misread the email. Like you, they just shipped Han Solo and the poster. That's...weird to me. Why would they do that?

Congrats! No Mr. Gold for me. I'm buying them through the online store just to guarantee (Hopefully) that they haven't been searched and I have 31 minifigs, but no gold or 4 others.

Picked up the Kreo USS Missouri on AWD for 24.xx. Looks kind of ugly, but for the price seemed like it may be worth it.

Was browsing the Fry's site as I do every Friday to check the ad, and decided to search a bit. They actually have a few older Lego sets that are out of print/harder to find now available for shipping and/or in store pickup. Prices are virtually all MSRP, and I've heard their shipping costs suck, but perhaps some of you could be in the market for some of these sets. Series 5, 7, and 8 minifigs for $1.99, Toy Story Woody's Toy Roundup for $49.99, a bunch of the Alien Invasion, Atlantis, and Dino Attack sets at MSRP.

Chances are, they had them out. Over here, in 3 stores, it's been the same thing. The put the box out, it's empty a couple hours later.

Yep, shipping absolutely kills any deals. Probably cheaper to go through ebay.

Your stores might just get in series 10 later. My KMart and Target got in series 9 late, and TRU sold out for awhile, but then were very easy to find.

I got all the heroica sets- I have 2 unopened that I got last week. I play with my son, the games are ok. Creationary for $11 sounds great - I would get that if I saw it-I don't have that one yet. I have a lot of the Lego games.

I am up visiting my parents so I hit a TRU I don't normally see. Was surprised to see the Toy Story dump truck for $5.50 and grabbed it. They also had World Racers Desert of Destruction which I haven't seen in a while but it was typical TRU tax price, so I passed.

The worst thing is wasn't the TS truck $20 or something nuts? I got it for $6ish from Kmart. Nice little set.

Heroica rules are lame, but I have some nerdy friends and we would be able to make it better.
