About Canada_7

  1. At $400 Canadian....I am WAY too broke for this. Looks awesome though.

    UCS Helicarrier

    Really excited me at first seeing it but upon a closer inspection the fact it's really microfig scale makes me a little more meh about it. I realize if it was regular mini figure scale it would be more expensive though. Still, it is a damn cool set.

    76023: The Tumbler Discussion

    Yes please! I missed out on the previous large Batmobile set from I think 2007 or whenever it was. However, this thing is pricy...easier to save up for the new Mini Cooper set (which looks great) than this.
  4. Pictures, Pictures, PICTURES! Seriously, not just talking about press stuff, but in person, and hoping someone is working on a review. Saw the set in person at the Lego Store today...it is a heck lot bigger than I thought. Not long, but it's tall.

    The LEGO Movie Sets News and Discussion

    Called up a local Lego store in Canada....it is indeed $299.99 here in Canada starting on Monday. Damn.

    The LEGO Movie Sets News and Discussion

    $250 American? Are you serious? That's likely at $300 Canadian. Ridiculous. More pieces than the Simpsons House and all, but I'd rather get the Simpsons House (which I have) at a cheaper price point and a nicer set IMHO. I like the Sea Cow and have been thinking of likely getting it but if it ends up at $300 Canadian...just a big WTF. $250 Canadian maybe (and even then I'm very meh on that price; albeit lots of pieces) but that being the American price...??

    Set is readily available at the Fairview Mall and Sherway Gardens locations in Toronto, Canada. VIP early access until Feb. 1 for everyone else.

    Which set should I buy?

    Sorry, in addition to the two sets (Parisian Restaurant and Simpsons House), I also want to add Metalbeard's Sea Cow from the Lego Movie sets into the mix. Those 3 are my tops for this year currently. My prediction is that the Sea Cow is gonna be least favoured by those who respond to me, but those 3 are pretty close for me personally.

    Came into this thread, was going to ask the exact same question. Two ridiculously nice sets for me.

    Canadian Eh?

    The Lego Stores at Fairview Mall and Sherway Gardens both have the Lego Movie minifigures in-stock. They have plenty in stock (also those at the back) but at the same time many people have gone through them. Seemed like the Sherway Gardens location has a better variety though. Mastermind at Pickering Town Centre also has them. Got my 16 in a mix of the 3 stores.

    Constitution Train Chase for 50% off at $65 Canadian....worth it? Set was never on my radar nor was I looking at getting the Lone Ranger sets originally, nor did I watch the movie. But 50% off...tempting....should I?

    Canadian price is now $190 instead of $200...awesome. Looks great.
  14. Those of you that are Canadian and missed your chance at one, call your local stores (if you live close to a brand store) every now and then on the days they get shipments to see if there's any new ones coming in. That's how I ended up getting mine like the past week. Called on Monday to the 3 GTA stores and all of them were sold out. When asked if any more of them would come in, they said unlikely but call back on the days they receive shipments. Called back on Wednesday for one of the locations, luckily enough a few more of them came in. Reserved one and bought it. Even the employee I called to reserve the set was expecting me to reserve 2...I said for just one and was surprised. I admit it's tempting to get 2 to resell one of them, but I can't drop that much money at once and hope that it sells or something. Really wanna open it right now and build it but my school work is starting to pile up. I took a look at the instagram of the guy that has been hoarding 200 sets (at least according to him; pics show at least like 50 sets or so)...looking at his other pics, looks like it's some rich young guy.

    Managed to snag a 41999 set at my Lego Store today, thanks people. I know the Unimog's functions are nice too, but the fact this is an exclusive and the radio control for the entire vehicle, plus seeing it plow through things on Youtube sold me. Oh, and having it available in the first place of course.
