No stickers and some of the tiles glow in the dark for reasons no one understands.

That's just to mark where we've buried all the radioactive waste

Target has a 90 day return period (120 days if you have a Target credit card). If it's scarce, you could always order now at full price and then return it later if you find it on sale somewhere else.

Times are a-changin', lego bros. I sold 4 of my UCS sets over the weekend and posted a bunch more on offer up. I think I got to the point where I didn't want to go in my "toy room" anymore and it was giving me anxiety thinking about it. Anyway, condensing and putting money in my pockets feels nice. I think I just need a break. Saving booty call commentary until Green Giant comes back.


I feel your pain. My basement is piled with unopened Lego sets and unopened video games (and CEs). I keep debating selling a bunch of shit off. But I’m afraid I’ll regret it and buy it back at higher prices

I'd normally agree, but Meat Boy for the Vita is a special case. The games have been printed for literally years and the CE consisted of statuettes Fangamer sold years ago, a deli meat tray, a poster, and an outer box (despite Josh saying there was some fancy compound CE planned for it and SMB Forever). Normally you can point to some component in a CE as a culprit to holding production up - things like disc manufacturing, steelbooks, and plushies all have lead times. But there's nothing that should be holding up production in that - paper is notoriously easy/quick to manufacture, you can buy deli meat trays on Amazon, and like I mentioned the other components that require more complex manufacturing (the statuettes and Vita game) have been around for years.

 

 

Fangamer made the figs years ago and I'd be surprised if they were custom manufacturing something that's so cheap to buy in bulk or elsewhere.


 

Yup. In the same boat waiting for my Vita game. At this rate, the Vita battery will explode before we even get a chance to play the game

You just follow the numbers on the box. Open the first one on Dec. 1st, second on Dec. 2nd, and so on.

 

Each day is an independent micro-build or minifig. The box itself can be used as a playmat for the micro-builds (the inside of the front flap).

Damn. Last year's Charles Dickens tribute was so much better than this year's offerings. Green Giant must be spinning in his proverbial grave.

 

I was checking my old orders. I'm still waiting on my Caravan Family Holiday from Sept. 5th. Not sure I've had a backorder last that long.

It’s just weird because Green Giant has always gone on off topic rants in this thread without mods stepping in. Hopefully it’s a one-off. I’ll be disappointed if this place becomes like ResetEra with heavy-handed mods

I messaged cheapyd about green giant and he had no info, he didn’t hand down the ban

But then why does it show that he made a comment on green giant’s post? Doesn’t make sense


#14432244 The unOFFICIAL Art Book Pre-Order Thread

Posted by WingsDJY on 29 October 2021 - 05:28 PM

I've never ordered from Bitmap before, but had to pick up that JRPG book I heard about recently. Does anyone know how long shipping tends to take who's ordered from them in the past? And do books like that tend to ever receive discounts before selling out?

Shipping is a crap shoot lately, so hard to say. They ship out pretty quick (within a few days), but it's anyone's guess how long it'll take to get to you.

 

I've never seen discounts on their books.

I keep hoping Lego will get the Spongebob license again. I'm pretty burned out on the show (having young kids will do that), but I'd still plunk down good money for updated versions of his Pineapple house, Krusty Krab, Chum Bucket, etc.

Here's the blog post: https://ideas.lego.c...e2-d0f910c42d02

Jazz Quad and The Office will be made into sets. Snow White is a maybe.

people seem surprised and pissed about no castle or modular sets passing. people are stupid.

You had me wondering what a Jazz Quad was lol. Jazz Quartet.

 

Neither winner really interests me. The Office looks really bland and blocky. Maybe the official set will have more detail.

 

Looks like another huge batch of sets are queued up for the next review. Surprised to see a Mystery Machine in there, considering Lego just released one a few years ago. Highly doubt that one gets made

I was almost impressed with this update, then I realized it's all just one game
