    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Keep in mind in the US, the most recent super hero exclusives (Dr. Strange - Target, Civil War Tanker - TRU and Rhas Al Gul - Walmart) were not available at brick and mortar Lego stores. They were online only if you wanted to buy through Lego. Previous exclusives have been available at brick n mortar so it's anyone's guess for the Batman ones.

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    The Disney CMF series had it's share of issues with missing paint, streaks, too much paint, etc... Granted, I'm OCD but out of the set of 18, I replaced at least 6 of them due to the above mentioned issues. So I wouldn't be surprised if the Batman CMF had similar issues.

    Thank you LEGO. I was waiting for a set with a sticker application difficulty level of 10! After thinking my OCD megablocks was in the clear by perfectly lining up all the racing stripes and 'speedwagon' strips, you crush my spirits with four tiny cockpit stickers! ?

    Don't you mean "The Speedwagon"!

    It's very YMMV. One of the walmart inventory checkers has/had lower inventory prices compared to the msrp and some have had luck getting Walmart to honor the discounted price. I'm not sure if it still reflects the lower price as someone had posted the screen shot of it on Reddit a couple days ago if I recall.

    Disney Princesses 2017 - Rumors & Discussion

    Good news... Picked up the Ocean Voyage set last night. Packaging looks great and one would never suspect it was part of the princess line save for the Moana mini doll. Obviously scale of the Island 'portion' character is minuscule, but the play feature of the island really represents the movie well for those who saw it. Inclusion of the coconut creatures is a really nice touch as well. Would love to bricklink about 100 of them and build a full scale ship of those evil coconuts. Bad news... It's for my daughter so it took all my willpower not to open and build it. Wife saw I was eyeing it so she promptly wrapped it and stashed it. Good news... Wife didn't notice the Batcave I picked up for myself that was mixed in with all the other gifts I picked up for the kids.

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    My experience with the Target's by me is that each store has a specific day for a 'reset' of the endcaps... so if the new sets are scheduled for an endcap display, regardless of street date, the employees won't put the new stuff out until 'reset' day. That being said, I've never not been able to get a new set from them as long as the DPCI shows in stock even if it's two weeks prior to street date. So even if you don't see them when you go back, just ask them to pull it from the back for you.

    It's more than we got last year. Marvel had only the Avenjet and Iron Skull sets last Winter wave.

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Just picked up the new Batmobile ($59.99) and Mr Freeze ($19.99) sets. Looking forward to building the Batmobile after seeing how the wheels rotate. Slightly disappointed in the Mr Freeze packaging. Hope it doesn't become the norm for a $20 set to use the push in tab style box often used for the $9.99 to $12.99 sets. Also.... not sure if it's YMMV, but Target had a 20% off toys mobile coupon. Lego is listed as an exclusion, but when I checked the receipt, 20% was taken off all of the toy purchases i made today, including the Lego sets. Didn't notice it at first as the 20% off is listed separately on the receipt as a total, not next to each individual item, so in the end wound up paying $48 and $16 for the two Batman sets.

    Love the side gate, but that front logo mod has gotta go.

    I was thinking Nooooooooo! The sand is going to scratch the Lego's (not sure if it's possible or not). But amazing picture seeing it in the sand. Just unfortunate the mistake in the instruction book has claimed another victim of the dreaded sticker being partially covered on the left front turret.

    Didn't even notice this the first time I viewed it, but nice use of the Helicarrier runway plates!

    Wow! This is fantastic Atomic80. Would love to see you add lights to your other stuff like the Eiffel Tower and Carousel and see them altogether.

    They never had an exact date whenever I asked, just sometime in the fall. They had a limit of 18 when I placed my order earlier today. The actual Lego stores in the US are supposed to receive them on either T,W, or Th along with more Disney castles in a ground shipment separate from their regular Tuesday shipments, so anyone still looking for the Castle, definitely start checking your local stores on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

    For those of you who missed out on the Disney CMF series like I did, they are now available on the shop at home site.

    On day 1 of VIP sales at my local store, they were packed two to a shipping box. As they were unboxing them for customers, all of them had either crushed edges, punctures, dents. Nothing major in any way, but definitely not MISB condition. Ghostbusters HQ were packed the same way to the stores and also had similar shipping issues for the sets sent to the stores. The managers kept sounding like a broken record telling every customer that all the boxes were in similar condition as they complained about the minor imperfections. The cardboard used for the Disney Castle and Ghostbusters HQ is very thin just like the Slave 1 and nowhere near as sturdy compared to the nice thick cardboard used for sets like the Hellicarrier, Tumbler, Sea Cow. Problem is that since these two sets are double the size compared to the Slave 1 packaging, it doesn't hold up as well.

    This might be a nightmare for all of the bag feelers unless the bat-variants have unique accessories to help them identify/differentiate between however many Batmans may be in the CMF series.

    FYI... Replacement sticker sheets are now available from Lego in case anyone isn't happy with the placement of the front left 'stone' sticker as a result of the mistake (incorrect sticker placement shown in the instructions) in the instruction manual.

    I would think Lego would want large sets like this to be scarce in order to increase hype and demand for the sets they do produce. If they flood the market, it could result in less sales as people may not buy them up as quickly since there is no sense of urgency. In a sick twisted way, scalpers are actually helping them sell out of these sets as soon as stores receive new shipments.

    Geez, don't people read. I'm confused over their conversation, not what the castle is modeled after.
  23. Cmay91472

    71040 The Disney Castle Discussion

    It's a little confusing, but from what I can follow in the preceding posts, they are referring to the Lego set as 'Cinderella Castle' because the set is modeled after 'Cinderella Castle' in Disney World, and not the movie intro castle often referred to as 'Disney Castle' which is a hybrid of both the 'Cinderella Castle' and the 'Sleeping Beauty Castle' in Disneyland.... So technically, the actual name of the Lego set is incorrect... Which is what the whole conversation was referring to... Not that they were mistaken in the actual set name that Lego is using for the set. Even after typing this, I'm still confused somewhat.

    You're paying $350 for a spectacular building experience and one of the best display pieces Lego has created this past year. Not for a dozen minifigures and an utterly forgettable building experience. If you want that, Lego offers Assault on Hoth and 60's Batcave for those who care about the number of minifigures or lack there of. If you REALLY want the castle like you say you do, then just buy the set and enjoy one of the best building experiences you'll have this year instead of worrying about number of minifigures or use of stickers. I mean seriously, I think the majority of AFOLs would gladly sacrifice more than half of the minifigures that come with Assault on Hoth or 60's Batcave if the sets themselves were worthy of a UCS style display piece instead of oversized playsets offering a dozen plus minifigures.
