Score! I just picked up the Avengers Hulk Helicarrier Breakout set on clearance for $20. It was unfortunately missing a handful of misc. non-essential pieces, but also had about a half-dozen random extras.

Does anyone have any experience with ordering/requesting missing pieces straight from LEGO? Their website seems almost TOO easy to submit a request from (like what's stopping unscrupulous folk from saying they didn't get the mini-figs?), so I'm just curious of what to expect.

Thanks in advance.

Where did you get the set on clearance? Would really like that set for the minifigs.

Must get Hulk.

LEGO will give anyone pieces without question that you request. I had to request a whole bag of parts once, there were around 70 i think. Gave me them within 2 weeks no questions asked. I just explained I bought the set fro mTRU and that a bag was missing and I couldn't return it because it was too late and they no longer made that set.

I still need to request a Cars piece, mine is deformed.

The Luthor Poly is going to be a tough find as it was a preorder bonus. $15-20 on eBay. The electro suit Batman should be easy as picking up the batman dictionary. There are often really good deals on these dictionaries but to buy the figure alone on eBay will cost you as little as $5.


Looking to trade for these.

If you and I hadn't waited the thing would have never gone on sale. -__-

I love the set, so I don't mind too much that I grabbed it when I did. I'm assuming the other sets on "sale" are like $1 or $2 off.

Target always does this it seems. Whatever the $25 SW ship is for the current release will go on sale for sub $20 at least once. I just never wait because I like the smaller ships the best and they are relatively cheap so I buy them on impulse...even though I know I can save $7 if I wait. Hell, most times I just buy it again to have an extra.

And they usually just mark the rest 5% off which amounts to a buck or two like you said. I'll check them out today. My store had a sale sign on the X-wing for $25 last week...but the sign was for a Skylanders Mega set??? It was very difficult to not try to buy an X-wing and try to get them to honor the price especially after I informed a girl working in toys that it was mislabeled and she never took it down.:roll:

I finally got to take my son to see his beloved Iron Man 3 movie. Without spoiling anything, I'll just say that a certain minifig he "had to have" he could care less about now. If you've seen the movie, you probably know what I'm talking about.

I'm half tempted to pick up another one and just sell off the Ackbar and Han Solo mini-figures.

I really love the A-Wing. If Lego released a UCS version of it I'd probably buy it no questions asked. Actually, I wish they would have made a UCS version instead of releasing another X-Wing (although the new X-Wing is really nice).

The Lego Store is currently offering free shipping on orders over $75. I want to order the $69.99 Technic Pick-up Tow Truck for my dad for Father's Day. Can I throw a $4.99 set on there and have the computers pick it up as $75, or does it absolutely have to be $75?

KMart gave me $5 to spend online and shipping is free since I'm on their MAX program or whatever. Sadly, their Lego sets have a mark-up and there is nothing below $5. I was hoping to get a free series 10 minifig or something.

Lego bases the sets off of the movie generally. It's like saying that Hawkeye never drove a blue truck in The Avengers movie. Doesn't make a difference.

It really is that easy to request new parts. Had to use it maybe three times in 10 years, myself. And I'm sure there are some people who are able to abuse it to get free minifigs, but TLG must have some system in place to flag suspicious requests like that for further investigation.

I do have an extra couple of the Luthors still in their polybag, as well as 2 of the LOTR preorder minifigs and the hulk poly. I might be willing to trade, or sell, one of the Luthors, although I don't have anything particular in mind that I'm looking for in exchange.

I recently saw somewhere that someone requested a minifigure and Lego requested more info like a receipt or box info.

I once was pissed off at the fact that a little sand blue wizard guy wasn't sold in the USA. So when I had to order some missing pieces I added the sand blue wizard hat. But a whole minifigure they would call you out on.

And I think they keep track of the addresses used to ship the missing parts. Missing parts are rare (not so rare 10 years ago) so if you are missing them they will ask.

However if you are missing a minifigure because someone opened the box and tried stealing the minifigures fro ma Cars set then... :lol:

Buy it. Target has a 90 day return policy and you can return online purchases in store so it's painless. Then wait for the summer clearance to see if you can pick one up cheaper. If you don't, then keep this one.

My Walmart had the X-Wing for $40, it's a Star Wars set, the 25% off is a good deal if you want the set.

I wasn't even aware Target sold the Architecture sets, but I found a clearance Big Ben (087-09-0249) for $20.98 this morning.

Was not marked as an Online Item/Repackage/AS-IS, just regular clearance.
