I really like that Bowser set, but I doubt I'll be able to justify the cost on it.

Set looks great, wish they would have included some more.

Yeah bowser looks great esp with the movement features but can’t spend that much, takes up too much room too

The big Bowser looks great. The designers should be proud. But it looks great at $150, not $230.

What the Fuck?!?! I thought I saw $230. LEGO has completely lost their fucking minds!

I want some $300 sets, but I'm not spending $450 on them when they get a price increase next month. LEGO can go Fuck itself without lube. Greedy fucking useless pieces of shit.

I think your just the chap to give it to them raw.

Fuck those cunts and their ambassador program of tryhards and lack of negativity.

Raw is awesome, but you got to use lube... most of the time.

I hope LEGO is in for a rude awakening when they increase the price 25%+. However like you said Fuck the fatasses who think LEGO is their fucking best friend and make excuses. Fuck them all. 

The 230 price I saw was the English pounds price.


I don't play video games anymore but I did buy a Switch in November, that I returned, for $285 from Target that came with Mario Kart. THIS COSTS THE SAME AS A FUCKING SWITCH?!?!

I really like the Bowser … but between the price and the idea of justifying displaying a giant LEGO Bowser in my home … I don’t know … I like it more than the cube or the NES, but it feels like the NES will be collectible and Bowser … well it’s a lot like the Harry Potter big figs … more of a novelty than anything else.

The big figs were great. Especially when Target had them 50% off.

I’m debating some Technic super cars before the price increase. The Sian and Ferrari. But that’s still some major sticker shock

Well good thing there’s another double vip event coming up next week. Probably going to pick up the Ferrari and the coaster.

Yeah and the big figs were 'only' $120 to start. I got them for $60 from Target too.

There’s a new gwp with purchase of $170, Santa’s front yard. I think these are leftovers, looks familiar.

Yea, they're from last year. It's lackluster after the nice Santa sleighs they released right before it.

Whan does the price increase go into effect and is it across all Lego sets or specific ones?

According to one blog, it'll affect about 25% of products and happen in August/September. The only list of sets I saw was on stonewars and it was EU specific. The biggest % increases seemed to be the bigger sets, and some unreleased sets had their prices increased (the rumors were that the huge castle was originally $350 but now $400, for example).

Wow the thread blew up after a couple of days of calm, and it's all about Bowser, inflation, and lube.

So nothing new really?
You think the girl on girl jetskiers don't use lube?

It's mostly the bigger sets because LEGO figures adults are stupid and will pay almost anything for poor quality sets. However the Speed Champs sets go from $20 to $25, the double ones probably $40 to $50. The Nintendo blind bags are up to $6 from $5.

The prices will increase in August and September. Most of the newer sets have already had their priced increased, however the trains are supposedly going up in Europe and they haven't even been released in the USA yet.

Well the only other Lego set I want to get this year, before it retires, is the 89 Batwing and am wondering if it will go up or not given it's due to retire soon.   I've already spent a lot this month on toys so I'm kinda tapped at the moment but at the same time don't want to see the price go from $200 to $250 in September when I'll have more disposable income.

I like the Bowser set more than the cube but less than the NES. And the NES wasn't $270!

I'll confess that I allow nostalgia to make me do stupid things with money.

 

The Bowser is a nice sculpture, and I have a tough time telling scale just off the promo photos, but I'm not nearly enough of a Bowser/Mario fan to spend that much.  The NES has been on my wishlist for awhile and I'd much rather spend $$$ on that.  But all of my stupid money is going to that castle.

Anyone know what the secret is on the ends of the castle … I know it can split into two individual structures but I was watching a video with some guy and the designers and they showed him some sort of Easter egg at the end of the video, but they intentionally faced the model away from the camera. Seems like that build has a lot of hidden references and little nooks … I’m actually coming around to probably dropping the $400 on it. Might actually immediately open it up and build it too … a rarity for me these days 😜

I read somewhere that there’s a pow block and some other block on the other tower to have some sort of playability with the starter course.

It was $70 at one point. I almost bought it for $55 from my top secret eBay seller.
