Re: 10254 Holiday Train Creator Expert LEGO Official Press R

For $100 we got Emerald night. A far superior set. Alittle bit disappointed with this set. Emerald Night is undoubtedly a great set, but you're not comparing apples to apples. It came out in April of 2009 - 7.5 years ago. It would most certainly cost more than $100 if released today. Aside from tha...

Re: 10255 Assembly Square LEGO Modular Building Official Pre

It looks great, though I'm disappointed they didn't break up the buildings into distinct baseplates. The only thing that bothers me a little is that it's wider than a standard modular. And the reason it bugs me is that I had planned to make a display of all of them together in a square (four corner ...

Re: LEGO Ideas Third 2015 LEGO Review Results

I've lost so much interest in Ideas, it's not even funny. At least the Saturn V selection keeps up the tradition of the Ideas/space exploration subtheme. Really disappointed that the National Parks didn't make the cut, though I guess I understand from the standpoint that it's a very America-centric ...

The only thing that's disappointing about this set is the lack of Goofy and Pluto. Other than that, it looks incredibly detailed and designed.

Look, kids... Big Ben, Parliament...

It looks pretty incredible, if a bit of a repetitive build, but such is architecture.

Re: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Summer 2016 Sets (76057 76058 7

Ghost Rider the character is awesome, and no amount of Nic Cage movies can change that. That's like saying no one likes Superman anymore because of Superman III and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (not to mention the luke-warm reception of Superman Returns and the mixed opinions on Man of Steel) - ...

Re: Free shipping minimum now $49

I think it has nothing to do with losing money, I think it has everything to do with Prime. How does that not have anything to do with losing money? Free shipping - Prime or not - particularly on large items, is killing their bottom line. There are plenty of articles out there that address that ver...

Re: Free shipping minimum now $49

Honestly, I'm shocked it took them this long to increase it again. I can't imagine how much money they were losing on shipping differences. That said, we have prime so it's no biggie to me.

Re: LEGO Star Wars 75148 Encounter on Jakku First Look

Hm.... I realize that it's based on a scavenger outpost, but Unkar's building was much more complete than that in the movie. It looks like a set in the middle of construction.

Re: GameStop Silver Centurion Iron Man polybag

The guy said that a large number of people said no to the polypag when they picked up their game. Can you believe it? That seems so silly to me. Even if you don't care one bit about the minfigure, you would probably know or just be able to guess that it would command some dough on the reseller mark...

Re: LEGO bulk sales policy update related to artist Ai Weiwe

It's an interesting policy change to be sure. It's so funny how legalese can work, since they now CAN safely "support" (NOT endorse ;-) ) his artistic expression with impunity, whereas before the wording was such that it implied their endorsement of whatever work was being created.
