Yeah, isn't it only at the Downtown Disney store?

I was in Orlando for the summer and learnt about the discount at disney spring. I really do hope it can work online lol.

was trying to find the answer online but got no result... Does anybody know how to apply the disney annual passholders 10% discount on lego.com? or is it in disney lego stores only?

 

It's impossible to do online, but you might be able to call it in, but I doubt it.

Doesn't work on premium sets, if they carry it at the world I'd Disney store that may be possible.

Someone in this thread is now the owner of the UCS MF...

My local Lego store got a second shipment of 10 this morning. I called them yesterday to see if they would be getting any in, so it was just luck.

I went to the mall at 7am and 5 people were already in line, so I was sure I would get it.

Are you a builder or an investor?

I'm an investor, but only in stocks.

I plan on building this with my kids over the holiday and making a coffee table to display it. Life's too short not to enjoy nice things that you can afford to!

Thanks. I definitely will. I should get the coffee table in a few weeks, but I have to modify it to get what I need. The glass bottom and top doesn't have a 9" clearance for the MF, so I'll have to make my own wood end caps. Then I'll have to cut the legs of the table to adjust for the increased height of the display and cut some glass for the sides to enclose it.

I'll probably start building it either on the weekends with my kids or wait until Christmas.

But I'll definitely unbox it tonight and take some pictures.

At least the bags are numbered unlike the last one.

I'm not sure what year they started numbering the bags, but I was pleasantly surprised the first time I opened a box and saw it. It sure makes organizing things much easier and saves a lot of time compared to the original method of dumping all the bags out to sort.

Nexo Knights 2018. I see alose in LEGOs future. The Nexo Knights vehicles are as ugly as ever. But the black figures look cool for army building.

It's never too late to get back in. I just started collecting again about 2 years ago.

Although your wallet may not want you to get back in!

Only 800 bucks a set, what are you complaining about?

eBay. I stopped paying full price for LEGO a long time ago. I'm hopeful to get the NinjaGo Movie figures for $50 when they retail for $80 plus tax.

I just bought 4 of these for $4.25 when I bought one for that price not long ago. (They are missing the ice hands but I don't like them anyways.)

The LEGO market is really starting to fall apart, which makes me happy. It's why I only buy sets I don't mind if I can't resell down the road.

I never bought to invest (save for maybe 1-2 modulars), so my purchases fell off a cliff when HP and LotR sets went away.

So do we know if LEGO picked up the rights to make Jurassic World 2 sets?

They have indeed. In fact, I believe the Jurassic World license will span Lego, Juniors, and Duplo next time around. There were a bunch of sets listed in the retailer catalog leak from a few weeks back.

Yes because LEGO only makes license stuff now.

Yep, 5-6 System sets, 3 Junior sets and 2 Duplo sets.

Good to hear.  I figured JW2 was a given since they seemed to have done two production runs of the originals.

It seemed to be a very popular theme, I hope the new sets are more movie based and less redoes of old LEGO sets.

Unrelated topic, I think I know what Amazon's Frustration Free Packaging is. It's literally just the LEGO box. They just stick the shipping labels on it. I bought a set of battery candles with that label. It was literally just shoved in the mail. I'm amazed it wasn't destroyed.

And it looks like the LEGO NinjaGo Movie bombed! Yay for clearance! Maybe I can get the CMF for less than $50 now.

The NinjaGo movie was the worst of the 3, sadly, by a mile...but it was still decent. I'm wanting to pick up some of the minifigures now, after watching it...of course lol

I wish I could, but it would either be food or Legos. I hear legos aren't very good for bowel movements

There are some great minifigures and some great sets, my favorite theme of the past many years. I'm just cheap and hoping for clearance.

I wanted all the CMF in the series, but I think I can get a lot of the more generic ones just in sets and not at $3-$4 a piece.

 

Movie made 21 million and came in third place. BOMBED! If bombed harder than Trump when he will nuke South Korea (by mistake).

What do you think the cheapest Destiny's Bounty will be? It's pretty rare to have a $160 set at Target/Walmart but I don't know if those sets are typically excluded from the 20% coupons.  B&N coupons used to be a decent way to get a modest discount but my store has cracked down on Lego exclusions.

I've been debating that. I think the cheapest might be $120. It really depends on how the movie bombing affects store clearance. Target online has it and at some point probably will for 20% off. I'm thinking if Toys R Us doesn't sell the theme we might see it 30-40% off like a couple former exclusives last Christmas.

 

And how exactly does eBay work? Is there a way to Fuck with people with like bots or something? I was winning a Ninjago set for 44.44 (plus $7 shipping) and somehow someone beat me with a 44.51 bid when the minimum bid increase was a $1 and not 8 cents. However I saw a set for 'buy now' that was $65, $10 cheaper than pre-movie.

I'm just hoping for fewer vehicular based sets.  What that leaves, I don't have a clue.... but the folks at LEGO are a creative bunch.
