This set looks amazing, much better than I could've ever hoped for. I'm gladly eating Joyce :wub:

Looks like there’s a pumpkin in the back of Hopper’s car. Nice little season 2 reference there.

Wow!! :wub: :cry_happy:

This set is one of the best to have released in the last few year, at least imo. I love everything it has going for it; the construction that connects the Upside Down and regular house together, the amazingly detailed minifigs, all the exclusive prints and stickers, the highly detailed builds, the fact that it is Stranger Things and everything else it has going for it. While I feel they're were some odd choices involving the placement of the windows and the hole in the wall - as the windows are covered up by the wall with lights in it and in the set the hole appears in Will's room, not in the living room like the show, but it's still excellently designed!

This is truely one of the most unique and fantastically produced sets we've had in a while.

If you're referring to the fact that the wheels aren't touching the ground, I think that's because there is a stand/connection point that holds the car to the base, so that can flip upside down.

What I love about this set is that it is a display piece. Lego have been moving towards that the last few years. On the one hand you have the ships from Star Wars and the helicarrier etc. But an actual display piece that knows what it is is something I hope they continue. Hogwarts last year, this set this year, they’re both amazing sets that a casual fan can get to show their love for the property without worrying about it being a kids toy or a play set. It’s great. I love how even in the description they don’t mention play features, they mention details. Even hoppers car opening is referred to as ‘easy access’ to more details, not to make play easier.

continue this trend Lego!

You’re right, my bad.

What a fantastic set! Great figures and a creative and fun build that looks great on display. This might end up being my favourite set this year.

The site that posted them wasn't supposed to until tomorrow, and these teasers have been planned for months

So some people started queuing at 3am, it’s now 4.26pm and there’s apparently 6 people in the queue.

i think they overestimated the popularity of this compared to the Falcon

Yep the definitely did. The Falcon was a limited set as well and it‘s one of the most recognizable vehicles in movie history, I don‘t think you can compare it to The Byer‘s house. Aaaand star wars has one of the biggest fanbases so that was to be expected 😂

I will just order it from the comfort of my sofa.

Oh, and does anyone know if LEGO Express Shipping actually takes 1-2 days? I’d love to have it here before the weekend.

I’m so excited for this set but I’m going to have to wait until double VIP points to get it. Anyone know when the next double VIP points will be?

Does anyone know anyone who's going to livestream the Leicester Square event? Maybe StoneWars?

He was not able to go there sadly. I’d assume Promobricks will though.

There’s someone filming right now, interviewing people in the queue. There’s only about 100-110 people here. They gave out red and black cupcakes and some Star Wars poly bags. I got the Vader battle pod and the astromech from a Rogue one, but I believe some people have gotten DJ and a tie fighter or poes x-wing.

Make and take usually means you all get the pieces and you build it together. It ain't a Lego set without instructions :roflmao:

EDIT: Nope, make and take are apparently those plastic bags with instructions in them, they do have stickers quite often. Damnit
