You didn't compare my comment back to the other theft, though. You compared it to murder.

Lego donated $4M to non-profits that support black children, etc. So yeah, it's a little disappointing that a company who is trying to do the right thing had their store smashed and looted by opportunists who probably don't give a shit about the movement. And yes, it sucks for all affected stores, but I highlighted the Lego store because last I checked, this is a Lego thread.

And TBH, if we're setting a bar that we can't complain about anything LESS than murder, we may as well have a mod lock this thread. Because most of the posts are complaints about prices going up and quality going down. Which is certainly less upsetting than the fact that another black man was murdered by the terrorists cops.


Most of the complaints - no matter what they’re about - have always come from one person

Found a Lego DVD "justice league Gotham city breakout" at Dollar Tree. It included a Nightwing minifigure. Seemed like a solid deal for a dollar

Tito, was the store you worked at? I hope you got your severance pay.

They were hit hard. I saw a few videos and it was nasty around there.

 

I'm pissed they trashed the displays I set up.

Says the prick who is bitching and moaning about their poor LEGO store being looted. Meanwhile George Floyd is dead, his six year old daughter no longer has a dad because the cops YET AGAIN murdered another black man.

Lego makes over a billion every year in net profit, they will be fine. But so grateful for the 4 million they donate, how nice of them. Yet again you care about something stupid like that and not the lives the police are taking or the violence they are creating. They are still terrorizing black people. It's amazing you are so closed minded to the world you live in.

So you can go Fuck off and just buy your LEGO online when the rest of us are trying to work as much as we can, stay healthy, stay safe and protest for a better world.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for that one

Cool rant bruh but I wasn’t the one who brought up the stolen LEGO. Would’ve been more suitable for a circle jerk exercise on some kind of subreddit though, I’m sure you’d tire them out though too. Why is it again that groups like euro bricks don’t want your charming personality around?

I realize this won’t get through that wall of narcissism and negativity that you’ve built up over the years but it is possible to care and comment about different things, to varying degrees, concurrently both on a micro and macro level. Everything isn’t either/or. But your virtue signal is noted my dude - you’re making a real difference in the world... here on a video game deal website... in a thread about LEGO

Is your outrage reserved for black men killed by cops or do you share the same outrage for the ones killed daily by non-cops? What about the 24 people killed this last week in Chicago?

Just sharing my experience today since I finally went to my lego store for the first time since October-ish (still salty I missed out on some of the cute Halloween prints). I'm in Northeast Ohio.

Employees were super helpful and precautionary. They were limiting customers to about 10 at a time. No touching of sets but they would grab stuff for you. I was a little bummed that pick a brick and build a figure were gone but it's understandable given it would be a germ farm. The manager told me they are going to get special scoops within a week in hopes to reopen pick a brick. Apparently If the customers can't self serve they are going to have some massive checklist where you can write down what you want and they'll fill the container for you.

I was able to get the central perk set, a city minifigure blister pack, a knightmare batman pack, and a huntress figure. It was enough to get the hot rod and some wrapping paper for free. The hot rod is pretty nifty.

Got a new Lego catalog in the mail yesterday and learned about the Dodge Charger Technic for the first time.....and find it sold out after heading to lego.com, bummer the free blue hot rod would’ve made it a instant purchase.

Not surprising. More stuff is out of stock than in stock lately.

Check out the reviews. Seems like a mixed bag. I think the hard core Technic crowd was disappointed in it but for $100 no one should’ve expected it to be a complex build

With Technic sets I’m more interested if they can pull off the look of the source material instead of something that looks more skeletal. The Charger seems to pull that off nicely and I’m fine with the engine details and wheelie bar instead something more complex.

My Walmart got it in stock this month...and it never gets Technic sets.  Might be worth checking if you're really itching for it.

 

I told myself to wait for it to go on clearance this xmas, but I doubt there will even be summer clearance with current inventory levels at Target and Walmart. :pray:

Found a hidden side lighthouse for $30 at Walmart today, which also had the hidden side high school marked down to $75, I already have that one though

Thanks dude.  I was at Walmart and didn't even notice the price changes on the Hidden Sides.  Picked up the Lighthouse since it was the only one left, but I passed on the school set  hoping they'll survive until another drop since there were three.  Brickseek also showed some stores around me that put the bus on clearance too if you guys didn't find one the first time they went on clearance.

Lego Ideas...a typewriter???

 

I'm old enough to know what a typewriter is and I would never want a Lego version of one.

 

I appreciate the build, but who is going to buy this?

 

Guess I better start building my 80's cell phone that was the size of a cinder block and put it on Ideas quick before anyone else does.

What’s the deal with Seinfeld as a LEGO set ... love the show, but I’d prefer a Frasier LEGO set over Seinfeld.

Kelsey isn't the most popular guy nowadays.

So is Wayne Knight the first actor to be featured in two different LEGO sets from two different IPs?  lol

 

Scratch that, I guess Sam Jackson makes the cut with Jurassic Park (Dr Arnold) and Avengers(Nick Fury).  Either way, pretty interesting/exclusive club to be in.  

 

Anyone else that would make the club?

Tom Kenny - Spongebob, Ice King

Tara Strong - Unikitty, Raven, Bubbles

Ian McKellen - Magneto, Gandalf, Cogsworth

Orlando Bloom - Legolas, Will Turner

Andy Serkis - Gollum, Ulysses Klaue, Snoke

Oddly enough, none of the Harry Potter cast are in the list.

Warwick Davis has had 5 characters though that’s cause he’s been a lot of Star Wars characters - Wicket W. Warrick (Star Wars), Wald (Star Wars), Professor Filius Flitwick (Harry Potter), DD-BD (Star Wars), Weazel (Star Wars)
