    10283 NASA Space Shuttle Discovery Discussion

    Brick Fanatics has posted that Lego has officially reported a delay in probe availability. I'll hold off on ordering the shuttle until the probe becomes available.

    In US, currently no sign of probe: Rocket Ride and Carrot House show up as GWPs though.

    Did you add in the Ulysses probe? If so, how does the redemption process work?? By the way, Lego Space coin is now available in the VIP rewards section for those that might be interested......

    Whatever version it ends up being, I doubt any public outcry had anything to do with it. Set was likely finalized long before anybody in the public got wind of it. I imagine friends and family of the Columbia and Challenger crews might not mind have minded an additional tribute to their memory; even in toy form.

    I guess your problem was coming to a conclusion that something was being handled in an atypical fashion with absolutely no reason to believe this to be the case. As I said, if a GWP shows up in my cart, I expect to get it and if a GWP doesn't show up in my cart, I understand I was too late to the game and missed out. To misquote Forest Gump, stuff happens. Several GWPs have come and gone almost instantly in recent months. The Yoda lightsaber that was included with Mos Eisley cantina set immediately comes to mind but their have been others besides the Porsche one presumably mostly if not entirely related to issues resulting from the Covid pandemic.

    I don't understand why some are surprised when they do or do not receive a gift with purchase. In my experience, if a GWP appeared in my cart at checkout, I have always received the item even if there was sometimes quite a delay. Alternatively if a GWP did not show in my cart at checkout, I have never received an item as an unexpected bonus. One possible exception is the GWP car from this January. My order from January 1 still shows the GWP car as backordered but I do believe Lego will eventually come through and ship it.

    Sariel has posted his review over in the Technic section. Spoiler alert: he really likes it.

    It is actually not at all like saying that. I believe JintaiZ is making the point that creativity doesn't always equal marketability. A cover band is by definition uninventive; the equivalent in lego terms of submitting yet another sitcom set or modular building to Lego Ideas.
  13. I'm sure Lego will want to know about the issue. I can't pull up the photo of the brick in question but imagine something along the lines on "pinprick" would be a more apt description than "stabbed". I had a mentor once tell me that you couldn't kill someone with a 22 gauge needle even if you wanted to and after a few decades of hands on experience I believe that to be true. I guess a significant injury might occur if a child (or adult) were to rub a brick such as you encountered on their eyeball for a bit and / or swallow it but otherwise can't imagine it causing much more discomfort than stepping on a normal garden variety brick.

    What did the packing slip in the box say Jamsplat? Sometimes Lego will ship partial orders.

    Were the pieces damaged or is the box for a small GWP really that collectible? I generally recycle the paper / cardboard and toss the plastic bags in the trash.

    If your order shows a GWP, it will be included no matter how long it takes for the actual back ordered set to ship.

    REVIEW: 71741 Ninjago City Gardens

    Two baseplates: 32 x 32 and 32 x 16. I have no knowledge of the TV show or movie but find the gardens, as well as city and docks sets, very appealing.

    Unless you really wanted that 33 piece scooter, it might have paid to wait another five minutes as purchases after midnight included two GWP: year of the OX 40417 with 167 pieces and chocolate box and flower set (30411) with 75 pieces.

    Designer video states that you build up to a certain point and then make decision about which of two paths you want to follow, with different sections in instruction booklet for each.
