This happens all the time with the newly released parts and is documented regularly in this thread. The new parts are all bought up in no time at all only to appear immediately in mass quantities on Bricklink for 2.5 to 7+ times the B&P purchase price and then it takes months for them to be available to regular Lego builders again.

I feel this. This was legit the first time the trans clear '45 degree bar on stud' pieces (from the DC Superheroes CMF) were in stock for me. :hmpf:

Cheers! :pir-huzzah2: And you have some great shiny gold, and also looking for the tube pieces!

@Exetrius The layout you created for your loot shot is really beautiful! 

Thank you! :grin: I've been arranging compositions with B&P orders for some time now, always enjoy it. Also helps me to check back and count how much I got of what, which is useful when building MOCs and wanting to know how many of the part you own (if you don't own any through sets). :wink:

How has Bricks & Pieces been lately in terms of issues or problems? Has anyone from Australia ordered anything recently?

Thinking of placing an order to pick up some of the interesting parts from the newer sets but I dont want to do it until I can be sure everything is going to go smoothly in terms of ordering, delivery etc.

I did an order about a month ago without any issues.  Delivery was actually quicker than normal.

Cool new parts, but only 3 aren't priced for collectors. My order will wait for august, then.

This is the first time I'm seeing those last three parts. That's amazing I want a lot and I want bricklink resellers to get none. Zero. Zip. Nada.
But with the way things go we'll probably get those for ourselves at around this time next year after they've bought out all 13,894.

I doubt it, no BL shop would be able to resell these that already cost too much. These initial prices are for collectors, those who will only add one to their order, just to have one. Which makes sense for licensed stuff, but not these utility parts.

You also haven't seen the first 3, they're new recolors.

More likely that LEGO will remove them when they realize they have let some licensed parts though and people start buying them.

Wait, has Lego made an error in pricing the golden bananas? 2 cents each; surely that's off by 10x at least. But, if that's the price... Guess I'm buying a lot. Element ID 6294545. I checked on Brickset; pretty sure that's the painted gold ones. All the other parts listed in that color on nostalgic-wilson have normal prices for painted metallic gold parts. You know I'm tempted to order exactly 201 of them, and can no doubt figure out why. Probably will order significantly fewer than that, though.

5 elements in lacquered gold from the 80012 set have been selling for $0.02. The shield tiles, bananas, wheel bases, 1x2 slope and 1x4 curved slope. They've been going in and out of stock for a month now. So Lego has either not realized there is a mistake, decided to leave the price even though it's wrong, or they have some other reason for allowing the piece to sell so cheaply. You're not cheating the system if you buy 200. Myself and a bunch of others on this site have done just that.

You won't be allowed to buy 201 of them. Maximum is 200.

If you buy too obviously wrongly priced parts, make sure you pay with Paypal. Through VISA they will definitely make you pay the fixed price. Paypal I don't know, I would assume the checkout price is reserved and they can't make you pay more.

Even at 2 cents (all the other golden parts had already been fixed) I only got 4 of the golden bananas because.. what do you even do with that? (plus it's a dark, not very shiny gold, it feels weird. Better than plastic gold, but still..)

How are you not? You obviously are. And obviously it's not gonna affect Lego in any significant way, but it's still cheating the system.

With paypal they can also change the amount. LEGO pre-authorises with one charge, then charges again for the order at the time of dispatch, then refunds the original pre-authorisation. So if you place an order for £50, you have to make sure you have £100 (or some other form of payment) as otherwise the second charge can fail before they refund the pre-authorisation.

As to the gold parts, same here. I got 10 of the bananas as they might be useful for decorative items on the ridges of a roof. Whereas the tiles, I got 200 as I have a specific use for them now.

Has Lego actually changed prices on these parts post-order, pre-shipping? If the price is still listed the same on the website, I doubt they've actually charged people more.

Regardless, it's definitely not "cheating" to buy things at the listed price. Lego has every ability and opportunity to set the listed price. If things stay up at an "incorrect" price for a long time, that's Lego's fault, not ours. If they want to change the listed price, or cancel people's orders, or charge them more (with the option to skip those parts), then that's fine. They have plenty of recourse here. But if they're actually selling those parts at that price, then so be it; so much the better for us.

The only time I ordered a part that had the wrong price, it was mini-legs and they were like 5 cents, which wasn't so unrealistic (could have been seen as a bargain), they definitely charged me the full fixed price.
Lego just has to make the default price 0 cents, so that their shop can spot that & simply not display parts with no price.

It's cheating when you know it's the wrong price (& you do). It's of course not illegal, but still cheating the system. And yes, Lego definitely shouldn't charge more behind your back without warning - both sides are guilty here.

Just to let you know. In Canada it is against the law to increase the price after the purchase is made. 
That being said I have order these parts in a few orders and I got them at advertised price. 
I doubt lego would Make that mistake for so long. My guess is maybe they developed something (a set?/theme?) that need all of these but cancelled it? Maybe someone slept on the job and the machines produced these for the whole night?;) now they have to get rid of it?:)

 

oh and I believe it is also against the law to cancel an order of a customer because the price was wrong. 

Which I don’t think lego would do. I believe a price change has only happened once for me in the tons of orders I made. That change was to lower the price for some reason. Can’t wait to make a big project with those gold pieces. We need Indiana Jones sets so I can make a cave full of gold:)

I received already 2 orders with these. The price stayed the same. I also have 7 more order on the way and some of them have some of these pieces and the price is still as advertised. I think maybe they have too much inventory. I take it like a sale! It’s a good price!

Forgot to mention. If you guys need windows “glass” for 1x4x6 frames, they are 0,08CAD on pick a brick (not bricks and pieces) in both transparent and transparent light blue. They have been at that price for quite a while.

Unfortunately, shipping these glasses is not careful. The warehouse will place them with all parts from the order in one plastic bag. Glasses come to you without any security.

When you order only these glass elements, you will receive them with many scratches. In my case, about 50% of the parts have significant scratches :(

I know but now when I order these or any transparent pieces a place a separate order. Example for these I only order like a bunch of them (100-200) and they usually aren’t that bad because yes, In the past, I had to ask Lego to resend large transparent pieces because each time they were very badly scratched and I remember one time last year where they resent them 3 times and I gave up in the end. :(

They really have a big problem with Shipping  transparent pieces indeed

Great idea. There are often (used to be) door frames in the PAB wall but never the windows for it. I might build a skyscraper or two using them

Ok. What was being referred to was the designs, as in the three brand new 2020 designs vs those three 2012-2019 designs (recolors).
