Re: [CAN] Zellers all LEGO 30% off Nov 30 - Dec 6

Saw lots of city sets, old SW, racers and hero factory at brentwood zellers just now, but basically all the good new stuff is gone. No LOTR, a few MF mummy sets, no superheroes aside from the buildable figures...

Re: Amazon.fr Lego 10211 Super Star Destroyer - 319.99 Eur

From what I know, as long as it's not a UPS ground service you should be safe from the exorbitant fees you hear in UPS horror stories. I don't think it has anything to do with US/Can, just that people think they can use the 'cheaper' ground option to ship to Canada.

Re: [Canada] ToysRUs 20% off LEGO City, Creator, Basics

I notice they are selling Weathertop for $179.99 so I suspect that is the source of the error. Or a really wicked markup... :-) see http://www.toysrus.ca/promoproducts/index.jsp?id=13071266&type=t" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; I noticed that all the sets are above MSRP; will we be ...

Re: Finding the Miniseries 6 Roman Soldier

Dot codes are the fastest if you've noticed a consistency in them. I check them just for fun now and was able to identify (and verify by feel) the 6 romans in 2 full boxes in just a few minutes recently.

Re: [CAN] Collectible Minifigures spotted at Walmart

Vancouver WM didn't have any today. Seems like the grandview location(and or POCO) is the worst for lego, I've never seen a single set on clearance or marked down aside from the rollbacks.

It's nice but pretty much doesn't mean anything for me. When I go down its either for less than 24 hours or over a week.

Re: [CANADA] ToysRus - 20% 0ff Sales [March 30 to April 9]

Might have to head to the US for a good deal - now that we can bring back $800 per person to Canada after a 48 hour stay... isn't the spending limits 48-hour = $400, 7 day = $750 Changes were made as a part of the new federal budget which would take effect in June. 24-48 hours = $200 48+ hours = $800

Triple checked by feeling. Top-down view layout of box(front is bottom of list).

I wouldn't blindly trust any lists though, I've never actually come across any evidence that distribution throughout the box is consistent.

Re: Asked LEGO about price increases, Response Inside

One thing I've noticed is that the Lego website sells the 3DS video games for $43.99CAD, whereas EVERY single other retailer I've seen in Canada sells the same video games for $39.99 or less MSRP which doesn't make much sense to me. IMO Lego is definitely doing something weird with regards to Canad...

Re: Asked LEGO about price increases, Response Inside

I take it their 28 point checklist doesn't include cracking parts. In my less than 1 year old collection I'm fairly certain that there are more cracked parts than I have in my big box of 15+ year old lego. Unfortunately I'm not a fruit fly or else I could validate their time and money spent into mak...

Re: B&N 10% off new LEGO releases and coupon eligble

What did it say when you tried to use the coupon? Lately the coupons just weren't working at all for anything, but I recall someone mentioning contacting customer service who eventually said to put in the order and they would apply the coupon manually.

Re: B&N 10% off new LEGO releases and coupon eligble

Not sure if it has been mentioned before, but it seems like B&N regular price for 6863 Batwing Battle Over Gotham City is lower than MSRP. B&N price is $26.95 after the 10% discount which would put it at 23% off the MSRP of $34.99.

Re: Barnes & Noble Canadian Customs

They charge 5% GST for all Canadian orders hence why there is no risk of additional fees upon delivery. I think you can basically treat it as a Canadian retailer with US prices and lower taxes.
