Re: Minifig Series 12 availability in Canada

I suspect the rush is he wants to flip them on kijiji for $8 a pop. There won't be issues with these like the movie figs, or the perceived issues with Simpsons figs. I don't resell them on kijiji my friend as I just collect them that's all. ;-) Well the problem in the past is that my local walmart ...

Re: TRU Canada - 50% off galaxy squad sept 27th - Oct 3rd

Will me more impressed if he can make that $1800 back by selling these sets, he has his work cut out for him. From the source of the picture, it seem that he or she will be parting it out. And I hope he or she is also doing a lot of moccing, else it will take him forever to make that money back plu...

Yes, but might not be able to do in store depends on the manager. Some will tell you it is one promo per person.

Re: Lego Shortage at Canadian Independant Toy Retailers?

Just read this http://www.canadianbusiness.com/companies-and-industries/canada-lego-shortage/ Looks like the small toy shops are being shafted so that Lego can fulfil orders to larger global markets. Big retail order lots and lots of skids while small stores can afford only a case. Common sense, I ...

Re: Minifig Series 12 availability in Canada

anyone? It's approaching the release date Oct 1st but I thought it might be available in store before so I can pick up a set before the rush? thanks What RUSH? With the price increase, I doubt there will be any rush unless they annouce there is a secret Mrs.Gold in the set. And to answer your quest...

Re: TRU Canada - 50% off galaxy squad sept 27th - Oct 3rd

I wish they had such deals for other themes. Personally I'm just not interested in the parts in these sets, they seem too specialized to build other things. agreed.. even at 50% these arent enticing It was attracting ONLY when they went to 70-75% clearance at Target last year. Goodluck to Toys R Us...

Re: Chima Fire Bike

Too bad they will never have left over from the good promos like the Martian Manhunter. I will gradly pay $3.99-4.99 for one. Don't bother - Martian Manhunter is in one of the forthcoming DC Superheroes sets, the "Superman Vs. Braniac" set. The exact same one as the giveaway? Or with the new torso ...

Re: #71007 LEGO Series 12 Collectable Minifigures

I too wish they would use higher quality materials... and stop outsourcing to China. Materials do not hold up as well and even at $2.99 they are still making a fair enough profit if they were made with same quality as traditional minifigs. They did not become number one toy maker in the world by ma...

Only 1 out of 6 people really liked this set according to the poll, yet the reviewer was all 8-10/10? $20 for a 165p set, 20 of which are small 1x1 plates. Hobbit 79003 is 7-8 out of 10. This set is a solid 4. Totally agree, here is what I add to it, over hyped = 10, resellers excitment level = 10,...

I have an order still pending. I received the promo Spaceman and Chima bike bonuses for the purchase but the HH is still not updated. I'm not buying the set as an investment but to build. I missed the SSD and have no one but myself to blame. Supply and demand basics really.I was on the fence until ...

It is not a licensed set, so Lego get to call IF they want to run it again or not. If enough people demand it, and it is a money maker then high chance they will. Will any of us throw money away? No!

Re: [[email protected]] VW T1 Van + FREE Mini T1 Van/Spaceman/Worriz Poly

So Spaceman promo is still live as well even though it's the 17th. If the Spaceman, Chima, and VW bus poly are still active on Oct. 1, does that mean you also get the 2x VIP and elf set? That's 5 promos for one purchase. Yes but unlikly, they are sending the Chima polybags out to Target, and the sp...

Re: Minifig Series 12 at Walmart

Wow, four bucks for a minifig. Hard to swallow new price. Weren't the first few series only 2 bucks each? That's a 100% markup from just a few years ago. Inflation must be hitting plastic first.

Re: LEGO Research Institute - Wider Availability (Now at Toy

Both hyped up sets in my opinion, still do not get why so many of us get disspointed not getting it. If these were something like the SDCC exclusives I can see why. As I have said before, if these sell like hot cakes, LEGO WILL MAKE MORE or create a whole theme from these in the very near future.
