Ordered the Galaxy Explorer at 1:45p and it was delivered by 6p yesterday. I too grew up on the second/third generation space sets, but for 35% off this is a great deal.
Lego has been quietly dropping some great spaceships this year. The GE, Buzz Lightyear's ship, and the yellow/red Monkey Kid ship?

I'm at the point in my marriage where I have to hide my toy purchases from my wife.
Bought the modular police station for the Forestmen gwp last time around, big-ass box shows up, "what's that, more toys?" Ordered the hotel this time to avoid the price hike, plus the Monkee Kid ship and Lightyear ship... shudder to think what that box is going to look like.
Not that I really want more competition, but some of you looking for a deal and also a fix for your gambling habit may want to check out r/lego_raffles if you haven't already.

Checked mine out yesterday, they've got about 6 Rexplorers and 6 party buses that have been sitting around for ages. Rexplorer down to $60 (half off is nice... still feels like too much for a set with only two minifigs, especially one being yet another Emmet), bus still full price. Maybe it was the dinosaurs that kicked the price up on that one? I think they all continue to sit until there's a further % off clearance promo.

This set isn't for me, but no Elmer Fudd or Yosemite Sam? They omit the two characters that might look the least ridiculous as minifigs from the first series in favor of Petunia, who I can't recall having ever actually seen in a cartoon but knew her name, and Lola Bunny who didn't exist until Space Jam?

Can we talk about how none of the VIP rewards are the actual thing that the company sells? How are there never any sets up for redemption - the mini VIP store hasn't been in stock for eons/isn't even listed anymore. I do the Marvel VIP thing too, and same problem. A company that built an empire on physical comic books doesn't offer any physical comic books for its VIPs to obtain.
