Your Best Technic Bargains

Recommended Posts

I tried that today at TRU and the lady/salesperson was willing to honor the price-match ... until a manager came and objected ... 'We do not price-match against low quantities' ... I was tempted to say "duh, show me the written policy" ... but felt it was a wasted effort ... I'll live.

Gah - how do they think the quantities got to be so low??? Guess I got lucky, not sure if I'd try again though.

TRU current on-line sales, US only, but alas I have already spent too much on small plastic bricks in boxes...

9398 - $189 plus additional 15% off - a great deal if you want one

42009 - $199, also a good deal

and, 41999 - $199 plus additional 15 % off, but I called and off course no store has one

other assorted older and 2013 sets at 15 % off S&H prices.

Just bought Ev3 mindstorms 31313 for 170 euro. It is about 50% off in Russia. Reason - main EV3 block is not working, as seller noted. I planned to sell all motors and sensors, then leave other parts for my needs.

But when I got set, I found that Ev3 Unit works, but OS is not loading ("starting" message and nothing happens). I have upgraded Firmware, and now it works well:)))) and now I dont know what to do with EV3, because i never worked with mindstorms:)

Now I have to build something to play with my 4years old son using iOs device (he like my iPad). Afraid to be captured by new Lego theme:)))))

Didn't some get the 41999 - also some other sets too I think - for free to review the set or something?
