Re: Europe/UK LEGO Brick Friday (Black Friday) 2016 Offers

Yeah, in the past the deals in Europe aren't related to the sales in the USA/Canada.

Last year's sales in the US weren't that great, but past performance doesn't always dictate the future.

Re: $30 Creative Box 1500 pieces Walmart Black Friday 2016

Last year the 10697 box set was available both in store and online for the $30 price, so you don't have to face the crowds. The website was slow once the sale went live at midnight, but you can probably get at least one copy of the set without worries. Also, last year the set was available on sale o...

Re: ToysRUs Lego Star Wars sale

FYI - all Classic sets are also 20% off this week at TRU, both online and in-store, including the new set 10705, which is normally $59.99 for 1000 pieces ($47.99 sale price). That works out to just under $0.05/piece. That set isn't listed on the TRU online store, but they do have some available in-s...

Which new sets are exclusive to specific retailers (US)

Many new Lego sets became available directly from TLG on June 1st, but only some of the sets have become available through other retailers. Most of the new sets will eventually show up at the usual stores, but at least some of the sets will be exclusive to specific retailers in the US (Usually TRU, ...

[USA] Walmart Lego classic set 10702 for $25

I noticed that over the weekend that Walmart reduced their price for the new classic set 10702 from the MSRP $30 to $25.

They have other sets marked down as well, but this is the first time I've seen the basic bricks set on sale since it was released at the beginning of the year.

Re: August 2016 LEGO Creator Sets: 31053 31052 31051 31049

Is there no price information for 31052 Vacation Getaways?

I am guesstimating that it will be $75.

Re: Black Friday Walmart 2015

I snagged a copy of 10697 on Friday by using the Walmart app to show if any stores near me had the set in stock, and was able to pick up my copy of the set on Saturday. I just now opened it, and doing a rough inventory it seems like the dark gray 16x16 plate is missing. I'll report it to Lego, but I...

Re: Black Friday Walmart 2015

$48.84 for 10697 is still way better than the going rate for the set on eBay or bricklink, and still the best $/part on any of the classic brick sets.

In other news, set 10695 is back in stock for $30 as well, after being out of stock online for quite awhile.

Brick Friday post card

I received a promotional post card advertising Brick Friday at the Lego Store (US) and at shop.Lego.com in my mailbox today. It lists free shipping on all online orders, free Gingerbread House holiday set with purchase of $99 or more, free wall calendar with purchase of $75 or more at the Lego Store...

Re: Black Friday Walmart 2015

Well, my understanding is that this will be the first year that some (or most) of the same deals available in store will be available online, so I don't think there is any precedent for how fast they'll sell out. I do know that whenever Amazon has a flash sale on Lego sets during cyber Monday week d...

Re: Black Friday Walmart 2015

I read that a majority of Walmart's Black Friday deals will also be available online starting at 3 am eastern time. I'm not sure if the Lego and Duplo boxes will fall into that category, but the fact that they show up on the online store, I'd say it's a good bet that they will be available for a spl...

Re: 2015 LEGO Holiday Sets Now Available: 40124 Winter Fun &

Still not available on the US Shop at Home site, but it might be too early in the day yet (or they may wait until Monday to update their site, I suppose). Update: If you do a search for the seasonal sets by their set numbers they come up and you can add them to your cart and purchase them, but they ...

LEGO Classic Creative Building Box 10695 $30 @ local Walmart

I was in my local Walmart today and I spotted 4 boxes of the Creative Building Box set 10695 up on a high shelf. They weren't priced (no price tag or listing on the shelf), but when I scanned one it rang up as $30. I'm not sure if they are new stock, or just stock that had been 'found' in the back, ...

I see this set listed at rebrickable, bricklink, and brickset. Supposed US MSRP is $60. So, has this set actually been released in the US? When/where was it made available in Europe? Maybe this will be the set that Walmart will sell at a steep discount on Black Friday? If anyone has any information ...

Re: UK/Europe May the 4th LEGO Star Wars Sale 2015

Well, the short answer to your question about why doesn't TLG discount exclusive sets in the USA is that they don't have to. I think (not certain) that U.S. law allows a manufacturer to set a minimum sale price (by allowing the manufacturer to refuse to do business with resellers that don't comply)....

Re: Official LEGO Press Release: 70810 MetalBeard's Sea Cow

So they actually made a 'broken' old style space helmet? That's pretty cool.

I laughed when I saw the cracked helmet in the trailer, because I have a bunch of those helmets broken exactly like that.

I didn't recall seeing that as a condition, but to be honest I could have easily missed that caveat. One month hardly seems like enough t...
