  1. I'm sure I'm not the first to hear of this... but the next CMF series is TLM2 + Wizard of Oz.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 70840 - Welcome to Apocalypseburg!

    I am seriously impressed by the quality of all the larger TLM2 sets. Rex's explorer, pop up party bus and the systar starship are all great sets which I'll probably add to my collection. But this set takes it to a whole new level! I will definitely get this set, though I'll wait for it to go on sale or double VIP points, or both!

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Darth Vader's castle was my latest big buy. From Amazon for a 25% discount. But followed by 2 small buys (75195 and 75199, both discounted) as qualifying purchase for the black VIP minifig and display stand.
  4. Lego will honour their commitment to quality even if the set you bought is second hand, i.e. bought from someone who isn't a retailer. Like sets bought off eBay. I have contacted Lego about missing pieces for sets I bought from eBay, about pieces that broke when trying to uncouple them (like the wheel assembly in Technic sets), etc., and they have always sent a replacement without any quibbles. Lego customer service is quite high, and it's one of many reasons I buy their products.

    I had a similar experience... one of the retailers I got my sets from does a price match promise. I got both DO and BB at full price from them. Then the very next day, they dropped DO from 142 to 107 for black friday, but were immediately sold out. Yesterday I called them and asked if they could match their own sale price, and they refunded me £35 :) In the UK, both were sold out on the first day of the double VIP points weekend. None remained for the black friday weekend.

    So, after a lot of last minute panic, I ordered DO and BB with one online retailer, and though the order went through, discovered that they were "temporarily out of stock". I realised that this could mean they weren't going to get them back in stock and maybe not fulfil the order. So I repeated the purchase at another online retailer, who seemed to have both sets in stock. Unfortunately after the transaction, they emailed me saying that one of the sets was "temporarily out of stock". So I ordered the missing set from a third retailer. As luck would have it, all 3 retailers managed to fulfil the orders and I was able to cancel only one of the orders, which means I now have 2 copies of both sets. My question is - do I return the spare set of copies to one of the retailers, or do I sell them on to others?

    Yes, saw those on the S@H yesterday and already closed the gaps in my collection 😊

  10. If like me, any of you were waiting for a big discount, John Lewis are selling 10257 (Carousel) for £124.99. I don't think this will be available at this price for very long.

    DO, BB and Tower Bridge all listed on S@H UK as retiring soon. Along with Ferris Wheel and Big Ben. Grab them soon guys!

    I look at it like - if I wait, I can potentially get a 25% reduction (including VIP points), but if i don’t, I get a 5% reduction (only VIP points). If I am prepared to sacrifice the 5% reduction (£7), I could pick up the set from John Lewis for retail price. And if the set isn’t reduced in Black Friday deals, it will probably stay in stock longer. But for peace of mind, you may choose to forsake the potential additional £28 saving and guarantee getting the set!

    I’m certainly waiting. There’s a chance for 20% off plus 5% VIP points. Plus Christmas freebie and Paypal £5 rebate Worst case I’ll get it from John Lewis or someplace like that.

    Thanks very much, Bricked1980!! I will definitely hold off for this set. Hopefully the brick bank will get a discount as well!!

    True. I would probably buy both... I think there's a place for both the cityscapes and the individual building lines. My motto is, if you don't have to choose between 2 and like both, get both. But like you said, it's just a personal preference. Not sure what you meant by your decision on what I buy or don't. Obviously it's a personal decision but thanks for your comment anyway.
