Thanks for the heads up. I had $37 in Kohls cash to use

Reddit says you’re able to stack all four $5 codes and add another promo code (such as one for the pirate set)

They stack. Used 4 $5 codes and a ship promo set on same order

Now I need to remember to use my other promo codes for the other ship, camera, and keychain 😂

I know I'd kill for the option to buy some soundtrack CDs outside the grossly-overpriced CE sets (Day of the Tentacle and Zombies Ate My Neighbors, for instance). Make it happen, Doug, and I'll love you forever!

This is how I feel about the books. Would love to just get the retrospective / anthology / art books separate from the CEs. That Monkey Island book looks amazing, but I couldn't justify the ~$200+ price tag with tax and shipping (joke's on me since those are now $500+ on ebay)

I never knew there was a secret apartment at the top of the Eiffel Tower. Won't be buying the set, but may scope out ebay prices on the promo.

Amazon has the VW Van for $120 (33% off). Probably retiring.

I wish the 2 VW vans were the same size. I’ll stick with the T1

...Withholding information is bad, putting out manipulated numbers is worse...

Are we conflating 'inaccurate numbers' with 'manipulated numbers'? My impression is that the webcode was never an accurate reflection of how many copies they ordered from manufacturing. Maybe it gave insight into how many people placed orders, but with MOQs, warranty replacements, rounding up to next incremental order size, etc etc it would never truly reflect the actual print run.

I haven't decided yet. I may look over the pricier Technic stuff to see if anything interests me. I've been debating the Cat D11 (since I work there and have a patent on that dozer), but that $500 price point keeps scaring me away  :cry:

They're only guaranteeing two more years of app support. This is what worries me with the switch to Control+ for the motorized sets. What happens when Lego decides to stop supporting the various apps for those sets  :shame:

You mean raising prices after posting record profits doesn’t sit well with your customers? Who knew 🤷🏻‍♂️

Pretty annoyed that Logitech g920 (Xbox only) is $200 but Logitech 923 (PlayStation only) is still 300+ Unless g920 is the same as Logitech g29 just different platform then it makes sense.

Logitech naming convention is a pain in the ass.

 

I think G29/G920 are the 'same' wheels from the same generation (2015), just G29 is the PlayStation version and G920 is the Xbox version. Not sure if there are true compatibility limits between consoles.

 

G923 is the newest model (2020), and can either be purchased as either an Xbox style or PS style. Not sure if the style actually restricts the console compatibility, or if it's just aesthetics.

FWIW, reviews seem to say it's not worth upgrading to the new wheel: https://simracerevie.../logitech-g923/

Why does the left forward in red look like he’s in blackface?

Yup. They do that to me all the time. Especially with video game CEs that get delayed. It's super annoying and you're pretty much screwed once they cancel it  :bomb:

Part of me wants to wait for a bonus, but sets seems to go out of stock for extended periods of time. I feel like this won’t be available to buy when holiday bonuses happen around Black Friday

The comics are the size of the game case? That’s not great for the extra premium
