So if anyone are selling elves, fell free to send them to Islington before the 3rd of January !! :wink:

@ SlyOwl: They opened mid-november as far as I remember :classic: Nothing special there though, as one staff member told me, that Lego hadnt provided them with any sets that where going to go "out-of-production" (not sure what to call it in english :blush: ). But they are filling the shelves with all they new lines.

Discontinued?

Still, it's Lego - in London! That's good enough for me! :wink:

Now, I happen to live in Islington, and on a whim had a look in WHSmith and ToysToysToys (in Barnet, as I was up there today) - in case of elves. And they both said there'll be no S3 until January at the earliest. So in terms of getting them yourself, you'll be hard pushed - Toy City in Wood Green doesn't have them either, when I last checked. Good luck with your search!

Argos also have £40 off the 8043 Technic Excavator and £30 off the 10198 Tantive IV. :thumbup:

I too hope there will be some excellent sales here in the UK in January. :classic:

Was in my local Tesco Extra in Dundee today, and noticed they had the midi-scale Star Destroyer for £19.98. The sticker said promotion is valid until 31/01/2011 but I imagine it'll only last as long as the stocks do. :classic:

I saw the sale on tantive IV- but it's a bit of a sham sale as you can get it for £100 on s@h- and get the VIP points. this is my first few months in the Lego world, typically do TRU have any good offers or sales in January?

Now that IS bad news... :cry_sad: There wont be many chances for me getting them at home in Denmark, and Im probably not back in the UK until summer next year...

Hmmm... So you live in Islington... :classic: If I had had more time, we could have met up (of course if you where willing too) :wink: Ever heard about Byggepladen ?

I live in Wood Green so will check in WH Smith and Toy City over the next couple of days.

Thanks jondesouza, I would be ever so grateful !!! I was thinking about going either to Brent Cross or Wood Green either on the 1st or the 3rd of january. If you could post a heads up as soon as you see series 3 out there, that would be great ! :grin:

Came back from Bluewater a while ago, having spent way too much. There are still some sale items over at the Lego store, including the Ostrich Race, some keyrings and a few select magnet packs.

There's no Build-A-Minifig there (hopefully temporarily), but the PAB wall has been updated with trans-neon orange flames, trans-red 1x1 tiles and studs in clear, trans-yellow, orange and lime. Check it out if you can.

Although not a sale, Lego Westfield has put all the S3 minifigs in a large container at the back of the store, on the right.

Does anyone in London want to meet up for trades, not just with me but a whole bunch of us at the same time? I've got loads of brand new parts I'd be willing to part with, far too many too list them all. I've already done trades with SilentMode and another AFOL I bumped into at the Westfield store, but it would be great if lots of us met at the Westfield and went to a nearby pub or cafe and traded. Anyone up for that? If so, Sunday works for me. Please post below if that's of interest.

Talking of the Westfield shop, I was there yesterday. They had...

Ninjago

...the Sensei Wu pack on the shelf for £9.99. It's more expensive than the other single minifig Ninjago packs but comes with more weapons. I didn't get it but only because I've already got the Sensei Wu minifig that comes with the Battle Arena (853106).

Pharaoh's Quest

...the PQ Battle Pack (853176) for £9.99 but not on shelves. You need to ask for it at the counter and they'll get it for you from the stock room. Alternatively, you can call ahead and they'll reserve it for you, tel 020 8749 1059. The staff identify products by the contents, not the product code, so you need to describe it as "the Pharaoh's Quest blister pack with three minifigures and a sarcophagus in the middle with a golden lid".

Anyone noticed that the tantive IV has gone up by £22 good job I got it earlier this year and the imperial shuttle has gone down £5 :wacko:

Some of the exclusive sets (Imperial Flagship, MMV, Shuttle Adventure) have increased in price. I suspect it's a response to the VAT rise today. However, Grand Emporium has reduced in price to £132.99!

Pinky and i would be interested in meeting up although not sure what we have that would be of use to trade at this point, both being new to the AFOL scene.

We live in Mitcham, between Wandsworth and Croydon, and can easily do meets at Westfield or Bluewater.
