  1. I noticed that on the day of release on the Lego site. I figured I would just wait until the excitement dropped down a bit and then order one. I stopped in at my "local" Lego store today and they had at least five on the shelf so I picked it up there. I'm sure Lego saw the demand for this thing coming so I find it hard to believe that they are that behind in production.
  2. I did that once while building the VW T1 set. I'll never do it again. I can't remember half of the build :)
  3. Aaaahhhhh. That takes me back. I miss my M-Tron sets. Anyway... I would to get my hands on this version!!
  4. The boxes are typically the same in terms of order and figure count. Ive tracked Rocket boy as 2 in the far left slot of the box and 1 in the far right slot. It's been like that for all of the series or at least the boxes that I find or buy. Going through one sealed box will tell you where they are in the others.
  5. I went a little nuts with the May 4th promotion too. Got the Snow Speeder, Poe's X-Wing, Y-Wing and a few smaller sets. The Lego website is cleaned out already but the store was still fully stocked. I imagine by the end they will be completely wiped out.
  6. Lol! That was the first thing I noticed too!!! Great shed and detailing. I love the junk pile in the corner. Thats a great touch!
  7. Totally agree. The scalpers on eBay are going to have a field day with this one. I'm sure Lego will get caught up on the demand like they did with the Beatles set. The response from that set was overwhelming at first with people paying twice the amount. Lego caught up quickly though and I'm sure they will with this one after about a month after release. I hope they do at least :)
  8. I went on the Lego site last night and they have limited them to quantities of 5 each. I was really surprised by this. I don't remember them ever having such a low limit.
  9. Corn Cob and Rocket Boy almost feel the same except for the tip of the rocket. I've almost mixed them up a couple times now. Rocket Boy definitely seems to be the favorite from what I've come across so far. Some of the cases that had already been searched through were missing him. The saving grace will be people rushing through the cases and mixing up the two. (There are 5 Corn Cobs per case).
  10. There's certainly a lot of Big Boy fever going on since Union Pacific started work on overhauling number 4014 (planned to be operational in 2019). Nevertheless, outstanding model! I would love it if Lego released an official set of this. I don't have the time or skills to build something like this on my own. Great work!
  11. I thought this was a nice surprise. I normally keep up with the upcoming sets and I had no idea about this one. I bought the Mixer before it was retired and got a good price on it at the Lego store. I really don't want to drop $200 on it but I think it's too cool to pass up.
  12. I saw this on the Lego Facebook page today and got really excited. I started to wonder if we were ever going to see it. I'm definitely getting two of them. Maybe even a third...:)
  13. Soon you'll be able to find them everywhere. The distribution in the last few series has been overwhelming. I still find Series 16 and the Batman series all the time and in large quantities. I even come across the Disney series from time to time. Ive noticed that Target is keeping a large amount of them at their checkout lines now too. This makes it a little more difficult when you're trying to find specific figures. Also, Ive seen and heard that a lot of Walmart's are putting them out this weekend.
  14. Yeah, so much for the May 1st release date. They're everywhere, especially Walmart. I put a few sets together over the past week and half and today I hit the jackpot at another Walmart with 3 new untouched cases. The distribution seems to be plentiful in this series. Target seems to be the only one following the release date (most Target stores).
  15. I got 30 packs today thanks to a Reddit Lego Minifigures Series 17 sightings post. It was a completely fresh case at Walmart. I really hope the distribution on this series is as good as 16 was.
