So I have last year's advent calendars.  However I stopped doing them on the 11th because I went out of town.  Should I start up again or just wait until next year?

You should leave it out, undone, for an entire year ... As a daily reminder that you failed at an Advent Calendar ;)

I was 300 miles away in a frozen wasteland where souls go to die being part of a self imposed psychological nightmare that if it was documented would have been used by college professors for decades.

 

In other news there is a Town Hall for $185 on AWD, not a super deal but it will probably be retired next...

Going by release date, the pet shop should be next, with the town hall retiring next year

Has the grand emporium been retired?  That one would be next, wouldn't it?

You guys are going to have to start a seperate thread for Lego dollhouses.  I keep waiting for news about winter Lego clearance only to be slapped in the face with dollhouse speculating. :cry:

Need some advice. Being offered a b-wing fighter for $150 which was msrp. I know the set is now retired. Should I jump on it for this price.

The MSRP was $199.  If you want it, you should definitely get it.  eBay prices are only a bit higher, but they will probably start climbing after the New Year.

Thanks for the heads up on the Disney princess sets being released early at TRU (they're also up for preorder on Amazon).  Seems like they were at MSRP, but are eligible for the 25 off 100 regular priced Lego deal (they excluded Ninjago on purpose because those were the newest sets, so it seems odd that they would allow these).  Anyone see the Movie sets out? 

 

TRU also has the Master Builders sets at MSRP, which when combined with the deal is pretty good if you go just a little over the $100 threshold.

Thanks skiizim, I actually ended up just going out that morning and checking the one Lego Store we have here in St. Louis and they still had plenty left. (Was after the Hero Factory Stormer XL that is retiring, in order to combine it with my Speeda Demon that I got on clearance at target earlier this year) So everything worked out great.

Heads up guys.. Winter cottage just recently sold out online and was placed on the retiring soon list. I just called my lego store and they only had a few left. Looks like this is your last chance to get it for a non reseller price

Isn't that just the yearly 'retiring?'  It was just released last year and you could still get the sets older than that one this year.

Yea it is part of the yearly retiring. Winter village sets usually last a total of 2 years before retiring. So this would be your last chance to pick up the cottage for msrp

I thought with the village sets we got three at a time like the toy shop, bakery, and what was next.  Now they retire the following year?

 

Not that I have any desire to bother with that line, the first two were great then they got out of hand.

I pick up the winter sets for the girlfriend. She wants to set up a display when we move in together. And eBay/ amazon prices get ridiculous after they retire. She picks up the modulars for my birthday every year . So it works out

lol... Did the B-wing really get retired? I remember people were talking about it but I didn't pay much attention to it, I picked up two of them during the sale. One was supposed to be for my friend but he backed out on it and I just ended up keeping it. Getting the Winter Cottage is tempting but like Big Daddy said, I don't think it's worth getting into the theme, it's getting a bit out of hand, I'm content with the first two.

 

I may need to make a trip to TRU, I have a $25 giftcard burning a hole in my pocket, those Disney sets would be icing on the cake!

No one ever wanted the B-Wing even when it was $100 and half off.  So it retiring isn't shocking.  :lol:

Eurobricks was having a raffle through December and it turns out that the fucking dumbasses there can't even count and it turns out that the people on pages 8 and 9 weren't included into the raffle.

 

I'm on page 9.  So fucking stupid that they didn't even bother recounting to make sure they had all the names before the raffle started?  And they are supposed to be the best AFOL website?

 

Idiots.

 

(This post was more to piss off a certain someone who keeps checking to see if the clearances at Target and Walmart are starting.  :lol:)

Nah, your rants make me laugh.  It's all that Lego dollyhouse talk that makes me want to pull my hair out...if I had any.

I'm here to please.  I remember that they are just plastic blocks.

 

However I loathe Eurobricks.  :lol:

Target has/had the New DC Riddler/Flash set as well as one of the Lego Movie sets (Creative Ambush)in stock. 10% off store wide plus the 20% off Superhero sets and the $10 off toy coupon in todays paper make for a good deal if you can find the Riddler set.

I went to Toys R Us to find the new Disney Princess sets yesterday and couldn't find them or tags for them anywhere in the Lego section. I found an employee that was willing to help me look and he eventually found them in the back with a sticker saying they had a street date of January 1st. After talking to a manager they let me buy them because they rang up in the system and didn't block the sale. Their prices are way above MSRP though. Here is a list of the sets I bought and the MSRP and the Toys R US price

MSRP Toys R US Price

LEGO Disney Princess 41051 Merida's Highland Games $19.99 $24.99
LEGO Disney Princess 41052 Ariel's Magical Kiss $29.99 $39.99
LEGO Disney Princess 41053 Cinderella's Dream Carriage $29.99 $39.99
LEGO Disney Princess 41054 Rapunzel's Creativity Tower $39.99 $49.99
LEGO Disney Princess 41055 Cinderella's Romantic Castle $69.99 $84.99

They did not have LEGO Disney Princess 41050 Ariel's Amazing Treasures. Their markups on the 2 $29.99 sets is over 33%!!! Kind of ridiculous. They did have the spend $100 and get $25 off promo going and it did apply to these.

Bastards!!!!! I was at Target and found Ariel's Amazing Treasure for $12.99, I found a few of the Lego Movie sets and I was impressed by them, not only do they look cool but they are 2in1 sets. Also saw the new Lego minifigures but not interested in them.

Toys R Us in Niles, IL had all the new Lego Movie sets and a bunch of cases of the new Minifigures.

Mine didn't take off the 20%. I had to go to customer service.
