I rather do other things than suck balls.....  :-

 

I never got the point of Amiibo. TRU sold the same exact Nintendo looking figures for $5. And the Amigos are so useless you can only store memory from one game. Then they made Amiibo card! Even more useless!

At least LEGO has LEGO in them so other people who don't care about the game buy them. If I can get the BttF ones for cheap I'll keep the updated mini figures and sell that horrible Ideas set.

The BttF set is 11.99 at Best Buy right now. Cheaper with GCU.

I just ordered that one this morning after seeing the price. This will be my first Dimensions purchase. I'm trying to avoid going down the rabbit hole, but I have a soft spot for BttF.

 

Too bad the Doc Brown one is still full price.

Eh, I still think Skylanders did it better, minus the whole refresh every release making old figures useless and having 10 different Pop Fizz, etc.
 

 

 

We bought swap force for 10 bucks on New Egg and totally got sucked down the rabbit hole, getting trap team and even Giants (which we never played). We started with Infinity which was so mediocre that Skylanders seemed like the work of genius in comparison. I think skylander character leveling was done better and in more interesting way than any other but I still think the lego worlds add more value and longevity the playing skylanders over and over with different characters, even though the Lego worlds are filled with redundant fetch quests, collectibles, and races.

Thanks to a buddy I now have the Batmobile poly which I never saw in stores. Now I just need to track down that venom symbiote poly

Was free in March at TRU if you spent $30+ on Legos.

Are you talking about the Batmobile poly? I do realize the promo it was part of but that doesn't change the fact that I never saw it in stores :p

If you're referring to the Venom poly, there doesn't seem to be any concrete info about where to find it

It comes with the Lazarus pit, Ra's, and Talia. What else could you possibly want?

Just like the bat cave that's barely a 'pit'. The NinjaGo set is what the Batcave should have been.

 

I was feeling up bags at Target and FOUR other adults were doing the same by the time I left. They screwed me up, but I think I have everyone besides the ducks and the cat because I was al confused by the time I left. I bought a bunch of extras just to be sure. Always nice to see other adults.

However it was the gay white guy (me), Asian woman, black woman, straight guy (I got his number! :lol:) and then Asian woman's husband. I like when there is nice diversity in the hobby.

The cat is easy to tell, short legs fat head no ears. I'm only missing stitch. My daughter opened an extra Donald thinking it was Daisy.

Depends on price the sets like the carbon freezing star wars set just smaller so it better be cheaper!  That batman looks kinda lame too

I did the complete opposite I opened two daisys thinking one was donald.  That bow and cap are so similar be sure to feel for the bottom of donalds cap when you find it to be sure

The whole time I was feeling them I thought the cat had normal legs, so I thought I was feeling the alien. Stitch is easy, no one seems to want him or Hook. Hook's hairpiece is HUGE.

 

But yeah the ducks are hard to tell apart.

Summer sets are starting to trickle into TRU stores. Only looked through the City and Creator sections though.  Picked up Vacation Getaways and Lighthouse Point Creator sets.

I bought 29 of them, I somehow have four cats, but I missed up on my pile because I felt a Sinister hair, but have two of Incredible dad.

The vacation getaways set is the large rv. The poly is showing qty in dc but no indication of when they will ship to stores.

The cat is easy to confuse for others if you don't feel for the legs, only 3 sets have short legs. You can mistake the cat the alien if you don't feel for his ding-a-ling on his head. Syndrome and mr incredible were a pain, so was Peter Pan and his cone head.

Less than a $40 pricetag (which I hope is a guess), when the only worthwhile things are the minifigs?

 

I mean -- seriously -- a Bat Buggy, a door, and some stairs and that's $40?  It's in the running with Hydra Fortress Smash for the knockout combo of tiny, overpriced and seriously underwhelming.  And, since TRU keeps trying to unload that set in sale after sale, you'd think someone would be listening.

 

I'll eventually get it, but not at that price.

GameStop had some Dimensions sets on sale so I picked up Slimer and Bane for $7.19 each
Stopped to see my buddy at the swap meet and through trade and just a little bit of cash I got the Friends yacht, Deadshot for myself and Scarlett Witch which was for my oldest son so he now has a full Civil War team. The yacht I had always wanted for myself and it's going to get a redeco at some point, gonna ditch the pastel colors for darker ones.

I agree, and at least the Hydra Fort had a bigfig to somewhat try to prove the price. I thought the batman set was $30, it's a stupid buggy and an ugly staircase. But there is a Yellow tanker that I that would be $30 and that's $40 too.

Anyone have an extra Sinister? I have extra cats and mermaids and Alice.

Any of you guys know what these magnets are from? I don't remember ever seeing them. I found them in a lot I'm sorting through.

LEGO used to make just brick magnet sets, like this one...

 

 

http://brickset.com/...ks-with-Magnets

 

7 pounds or $15... remember when the exchange rate was decent. :lol:

 

Speaking of which in case you guys and gals didn't feel screwed over enough. Because the Canadian Dollar is so weak up north the mini figures are only like $3.20.

 

They get free health care and cheap college AND cheap LEGO. They need to invade the north right away... or at least before November.

Thanks, I couldn't find anything on them. Though I guess I didn't look hard enough. They're not very kid safe as I did find a couple of the magnets at the bottom of the bin.
