    Storage and Sorting LEGO

    Or you could just try sorting them out a handful at a time or pick out the pieces u can see that fit in a catagory.

    LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 5 discussion

    Does anyone know when the figgies should start popping up in the US? I'm STILL trying to find series 5 on BL but the only inexpensive ones have shipping that can pile up fast, aren't id'ed, or there's nothing else I want to buy that'd make the shipping price worth it.

    That sounds right. the "study" probaby forced things towards things girls would "Normally" like. I want a girl themed set to put w/ my stuff and expand overall a little bit that'd add a level of something different when my cousin would come over. I'm a girl that prefers vehicle building and minifigures but I really would like some GIRL items to add variety. Yea, there's the modulars that may attract girls, but the sets cost 2 arms and a leg. Plus, even if I could find it cheap, I have no where to put it.
  4. have you tried eBay? Fair warning though, I've seen bidding wars get vicious on some lego stuff

    That happens after a while w/ most folded hinge containers after a while. It probably turned that color so fast due to the cheap materials. You may wind up having to stop opening it at all unless u want to risk a hinge failure

    I can find a whole mess load on BL, but none are in the requirements i need: Pre-id'd zookeeper AND aerobics girl, price at or below retail, good shipping costs, and good stuff in the minifigure section so I can score a few extra things. Best I can get is 2/4. I wish lego would hurry up and release the figgies in the states then maybe I can score something!

    I hope some UK sellers will start listing on BL. All that's really popping up on BL now are either the un'id'd ones at a good price(i want 2 specific one's), good priced id'd but the shipping looks like it could get expensive fast, or overpriced ones w/ shipping that stacks up fast also if i want to get any extra stuff
  8. Those seem interesting, but if they are real, let's just hope they are prototypes. Quality on some of the parts give me an impression that it's more of Really good custom made or boarder line generic figure.

    Check bricklink under the sets section. There's only 2 sellers on pre-id'd ones. One selling for 2 something a piece and 1 for 10 a piece. There's also a bunch of un-id'd ones including ones buy the box full on the lower end of 2 dollars. Oh, and a few on ebay. Looks like all they have so far are buy the box or the gangster.
  10. in the span of a month and a half, I've gotten 3 rounds of free stuff from them. I ask them a question and I get stuff. It is making me FURIOUS and once I get to the lego store, i'm going to ebay and BL for my needs since i'm sick of dealing w/ a hind quarter kissing company. I'd rather give my business to people(ebay and BL sellers) that actually care about the customers and not their money I've gotten 2 free horses(asked when they were coming back in stock so i could BUY 2), 6 free figures and a keychain on express(asked them what shipping companies handle what items b/c I was having major issues w/ them on this order), and now 18 free VIP points getting me my 5 dollar credit(asked how to use the 5 dollar credit once I reached it and said i no longer wished to deal w/ LS.com after my last order and the store is to far away for a quick trip) I am sick of this overload of stuff! it's like i'm asking them for the time of day and they're giving me a gold watch! It's more then I need or want.
  11. AHEM! 1) I am a FEMALE not a HE and 2) I haven't posted in hopes of letting this SERIOUS post and issue just die off the main page Does anyone know how to lock topics? If this topic isn't going to get serious, i want to lock this.

    I just checked on bricklink and series 5 figures have started to be listed! ID'd figures appear to be more or less all posted by someone called "Skane Bricks" and they have the figures listed at 10 bucks a piece(yes. $10). there's also one selling unid'd ones for 2.34 w/ one required to buy them by the box and the same seller also has some at 2.93 a piece w/ no minimum requirement.

    i'm going to look into the aerobics gal and zoo keeper online and maybe the eskimo on Bricklink. Whenever I get to the lego store(planned trip has been postponed), I may look into a couple more there. I'm having to be patient since it'll probably be another week or so until those start showing up on BL at earliest. EDIT: Scratch that. I'll have to look into all the figures i'm looking into at the lego store whenever I go. One of my ACWW towns began having loading issues and I just had to use up all but 2.50 out of my paypal fund to get a new copy of ebay. EDIT 2: Buying the figgies may just be back on! ACWw is working again and if it continues working w/o issue, i'm cancelling the ebay order!
  14. I emailed the lego customer service about it. and out of the 3 times, I only got the information I asked for(latest freebie time). First time, I only got a "items become unavailable when quanities are low" and second they claimed to not be sure what items typical ship w/ which shipper(DHL and FedEx).
  15. It's not odd. I'm just a person that doesn't want to get an overload of stuff. And w/ them, I asked questions on 3 occassions that only needed a very simple answer for each(When for the first q, who for the second, and how for the third) and I get stuff in return! At the way they're going, I should of expected a lego gift card or something from them when I emailed them recently about bailing out of the lego catalog(prices are ridicilous!). I just got a response in the form of what I needed which i'm more then happy with. I got asked my shipping info.

    Are lego prices really that bad today?

    Yea, prices were kinda high back them also, but the stuff is WAY better then a lot of todays stuff. Plus a lot of the older stuff piece counts contained way more bigger pieces then today. All I see in countless of the bigger sets now are lots and lots of little bits that just jack up the price but just cause a headache when building.

    Are lego prices really that bad today?

    I don't really buy from stores near me(as in within a half hour drive) anymore either. The closest walmart hasn't changed up the stock in at least 3 months and the one just a little further has changed up maybe 25% of the inventory in the last couple months. I'm getting much more of a thrill from BL. PS: Special thanks to the people that helped me answer my Q's about BL. I have done 2 orders(one here, one in route) and i'm planning on using the site to find series 5 figures I want.

    Are lego prices really that bad today?

    That's really a matter of opinion. For me, it's the price tag of lego that has stopped me from any real buying. I see sets that I like but then I see the price tag and i'm ready to yell out "you want HOW much for the set???!!!". Just thinking off the bat, there's at least 3 sets that I'm after and at least 3 that my mother is after(she's after a few HP sets) and it's the price tag that's holding us back. if it wouldn't be for the price tag, i'd be after a couple sets at the lego store. Here's the catch: I only have about 40 dollars for the trip(trip notice was only a week ago so I had no time to plan saving up more) for the museum gift shop and the lego store. At this point my buying plans are 1 or 2 BAM kits(saying 2 if there's a bunch of good stuff), 1 or 2 collectable minifigures, small car set(if it's still available and pending on price) and,(pending on what lego says), I am planning on using a few dollars and the 5 dollar card I get w/ the VIP thing to get a small PAB cup(8 bucks - 5 dollar card = 3 dollars). if the sets wouldn't be so much, i'd look into a small set.

    The Unofficial Minifigure Catalog

    I think that 89 buck price tag is wrong. Check out this listing: http://www.lulu.com/product/ebook/the-unofficial-lego-minifigure-catalog/16259479

    PAB Cups: What Did You Get?

    I'm planning on bringing my large cup w/ me on the trip just incase I want to use it. However, depending on what lego says w/ my VIP question, I may just use the 5 dollar credit on a seperate purchase(if I can) and get a small cup(8 bucks - 5 buck credit = 3 dollar cup!) w/ a few things in it(well packed) since I don't really want a lot of things.

    Are lego prices really that bad today?

    The prices are really getting to me. I think lego may want to see if they can cut prices back a bit. Except for Collectable minifigures(only the ones I really want) and maybe a few BL items(while i'm going for the figgies), i'm planning on hanging up my lego buying hat after this weekend(Lego store! but that will be scaled back) for now. Sorry lego, but i'm much more concerned about getting an emergency repair fund saved up for my Xl or money for if a 3DS XL is created. and JO6 has a good point about the increase of small pieces. I noticed that with some of the latest 3-in-1 plastic container sets w/ racers and creator. There's an aweful lot of small bits w/ some of the sets. And that could partically explain why i love the 420 police racer(1973) WAY better then the Urban enforcer(2011) car. There's multiple small pieces on the UE car but only one(1X1 plate on top the car) on the 420 car that I can think of. While I am planning on keeping my Lego magizine subscription(for now), i am planning on bailing out of the lego catalog(lining up email to lego now). I's just to disturbing to see the high price tags.

    LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 5 discussion

    I'll call the store a couple days b4 we go. Only issue is that we're taking off on the 22nd(ish) and most likely will only have that day for the LS since we'll be spending the next day(all day) at a relatives then going home the following day so that's kinda early for the figgies to arrive :( I'll have to hold out hope for BL or eBay.

    Favourite Series 1-3 LEGO Minifig Collection?

    i got that also. I'll probably do it for the sake of others, but I'd rather find the series 1 figures I want via BL and eBay. After the bull of last time I ordered from legoshop.com, I am THROUGH with dealing from the LS site

    LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 5 discussion

    does anyone know what the odds are of the Lego store doing a release b4 the actual release date? There's a slim chance we're traveling outstate to visit relatives in 2 weeks and i'm debating between pulling some money I put in the checking account(that money is currently going towards an ebay order if i go for it) for the lego store or if I should just use the 20 dollars I have saved up at the store and keep spending small. I need to make the decision FAST b4 the items I want on B.I.N. escape from me.
