    Toy Story 2019

    I saw this too, but wondered about the reality of it. How do you get a train for $20. Just an engine with 2 minifigures?

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I've read in several different places that Lego will be doing the bricktober this year, not TRU or any other retailer

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Seeing some posts of the CMF on instagram at Target. Looks like they are ringing up at $4.49. Can anyone confirm if they raised the prices $.50?

    James Bond 2018

    Somebody overlaid the real DB5 over the Lego version. Is it perfect, no but from the side profile it is a lot better than I thought.

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    It is a fun build! But the best part is when you view it from the top, it looks like a batman logo.

    Just finished putting together the Hogwarts Express. I really like it, but I really wish it came with a second passenger car. Definitely not bad enough to buy a second set, but maybe I’ll have to find one on the secondary market.

    My Case Against Artificial Rarity

    If that is the case, why not make 100,000 of them take 5000 and put a special print on the back (SDCC 2018 or something to that effect), put them in exclusive packaging and gave them away. Then 3 months later put the other 95,000 in a polybag and sell them. That way not nearly as much extra time on the marketing floor. Granted there are not many SDCC exclusive that I wish I could have.

    My Case Against Artificial Rarity

    Nintendo is terrible about it. A couple years ago they made retro Nintendo’s. They sold them for $60 and the most I ever heard about any single store around me getting was 10. They were selling on he secondhand market for $200 the day they were released. Many like myself, never got one (I would have for retail if I could have ever found one). The thing I don’t get is if Nintendo is intentionally doing this, why would they sell them for $60 when there was clearly a supply demand situation that warranted a much higher retail price. Their strategy, while allowing them to sell out, kept them from maximizing there potential income. Why not retail them for $150. The same goes with the CMF. If lego wants to maximize their profits why not make it so that the chase figure is sold retail for a higher price?

    My Case Against Artificial Rarity

    Interesting. Maybe it is a bigger deal outside of where I live, but out side of secondhand resellers, I’ve never seen a store selling the chase figure (I.e Mr Gold, police officer) for anything other than MSRP.

    My Case Against Artificial Rarity

    Do they? I have only bought 16 instead of 17. I will only buy the 17th when I finally find a police officer

    My Case Against Artificial Rarity

    I don't see how things like the CMF police officer benefit Lego. It is not like the benefit from the people selling them at $30 on the secondary market. There is no scenario that I see where limited releases do anything for Lego's bottom line, it only hurts them. Of course I'm no marketing/business expert, but if there is high demand for an item, meet that demand. If you are creating an artificial demand for a product by making it limited, then capitalize on it by making the price comparable to the demand.

    Never had any problems doing it at Wal-Mart, Target, or a Lego store. Lego Store employees will sometimes help if the store isn't busy!

    The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Same here. I haven’t seen it anywhere. The only ones available on bricklink are outside the US and there is only 4 or 5 available. Must have been very limited release.

    There is a picture of it up on instagram. It’s not letting me attach a pic or I would. Michael_bricks_vol.7
