Re: Double VIP Points October 1-4 only

Ebay is running a promo for 5X Ebay Bucks for a $50+ purchase if anyone likes to go through Ebay. Instead of waiting for Lego's Double VIP, I made an order for the UCS Tie Fighter and will get about $20 back later. I was charged tax but in the end will save about $10 more than going through Lego. He...

[USA] Target $10 off $50 Star Wars toys

In celebration of May 4th, Target is discounting all Star Wars products $10 off of $50. For example, this puts Mos Eisley to $45.99 which is nearly 35% off retail. I just picked up the AT-AT for $80.99 before tax.

Re: Stolen/missing minifigures from online order? (Toys R Us

A couple years ago I bought the LEGO Death Star from Amazon's Warehouse Deals and all the minifigs had been removed when I received it. Such a disappointment :(. Amazon did graciously have UPS pick it up from my home and fully refund me. I know your pain!

Re: [US] 20% off 3 sets (max $50 discount) at yoyo.com

Also the code "YOYO20TOY" is still working for me, if anyone would like just one Lego set.

EDIT: As long as it's not on sale.

Re: Availablity Update for LEGO Ideas Exo-Suit & Research In

I didn't realize these were released already so I just called my wife who happened to be in the mall and asked her to check in the Lego store for Research Institute. She just called back and they had ONE left behind the counter!! It's our wedding anniversary on Sunday so I will be receiving this awe...

Re: Lego May the 4th sneek peak

Is it possible they might switch some deals around? Perhaps some different discounts on the actual 4th. I was hoping to get the UCS X-Wing but nevermind right now. I enjoyed KOTOR but it's not worth it to get Revan.

Re: Will 10235 Winter Village Market go 1/2 off?

The real reason they ship with expedited shipping is not for the benefit of the buyer but to get the product delivered as fast as possible. Once it is delivered, there's nothing that can be done except for the bank to take a hit. If the cardholder notices the fraudulent transaction in time, then Leg...

Re: No Discounts Policy on LEGO Exclusives & Hard to Find It

I think the reason why this feels so unfair to a lot of us is because in the back of our mind, we already feel like Lego is grossly overpriced already. I love the products and the quality is at the top of the building bricks toy industry, but it makes me feel bad each time I make a large purchase be...

Re: [email protected] No Longer Shipping to "3rd Party Shipping Vendors"

Lego most likely has a system to catch orders shipping to a different address than the billing address (and over a certain dollar amount). If they take a closer look, those 3rd party shipper addresses are usually pretty easy to recognize. As has been said, it's an effort to crack down on fraud. For ...

Re: Steal of a Deal / Recent LEGO Purchases

Check the shipping label on the outside of the shipping box. If it's from Lego (and not a person's home address) then it's a dropship scam and someone's credit card was just used fraudulently.

Re: [USA] Target Clearance Finds Summer 2013

My Target had one last pirate ship (already picked one up two weeks ago) and it was still 25% off. I'm going to assume my location doesn't do 75% :(

Thanks for sharing, Atmail! When I did this in June, I used the same email and account and they still allowed me to receive and use the $10. Just throwing that out there :).

Re: [USA] Target Clearance Finds Summer 2013

Just like Willb, my local Target in Nashville had little signs next to the regular prices saying Clearance but nothing I rang up was lower than msrp. Very disappointing.

Re: [USA] Jabba's Sail Barge at Yoyo

Yeah, there are a few options that made me give the Barge a second thought. That ship included. I assume I'll be seeing those LOTR sets discounted on Amazon way before the Barge is (since they are released already), and it's cool to get it before it has officially been released. I will also sell the...
