  1. I'm not sure if LEGO even cares about our aggravation. They started numbering their brickheadz boxes so everyone will clearly notice the gap reserved for the convention exclusives.
  2. I made an order with a back-ordered item. Then days later, I make another other with a back-ordered item and an in-stock item. Both orders have promo items. Nothing in the first order has shipped and the promo items are listed as 'in process'. The second order had the promo items shipped with the in-stock item. So at this point, it doesn't seem like LEGO will ship a box with only promo items, but perhaps it's too soon to tell.
  3. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    LEGO did report a decline in revenue in 2017. These larger sets do tend to stick around for about two years so people maybe holding off on purchasing them right away or focusing on smaller sets.
  4. Lego BrickHeadz 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    I wonder what they will do next to make us feel bad? Release Luke and Leia at conventions and release Anakin and Padme for mainstream?
  5. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I looked at the top ten priciest set from each year, via brickset, and it looks like costs went up sharply from 2015 and stayed about the same in 2016. Is there enough consumer demand (and money) to keep up? 2017 75192: Millennium Falcon: $799.99 70620: NINJAGO City: $299.99 42070: 6x6 All Terrain Tow Truck: $289.99 10255: Assembly Square: $279.99 70922: The Joker Manor: $269.99 21137: The Mountain Cave: $249.99 10257: Carousel: $199.99 71042: Silent Mary: $199.99 75144: Snowspeeder: $199.99 42069: Extreme Adventure: $179.99 total: $2,969.90 (1.37% increase from 2016) average: $296.99 2016 75159: Death Star: $499.99 71040: Disney Castle: $349.99 75827: Firehouse Headquarters: $349.99 42056: Porsche 911 GT3 RS: $299.99 42055: Bucket Wheel Excavator: $279.99 76052: Batman Classic TV Series - Batcave: $269.99 10253: Big Ben: $249.99 75098: Assault on Hoth: $249.99 21128: The Village: $199.99 42054-1: CLAAS XERION 5000 TRAC VC: $179.99 total: $2,929.90 (37.56% increase from 2015) average: $292.99 2015 76042: The SHIELD Helicarrier: $349.99 42043: Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245: $229.99 10247: Ferris Wheel: $199.99 60098: Heavy-Haul Train: $199.99 70751: Temple of Airjitzu: $199.99 71016: Kwik-E-Mart: $199.99 75060: Slave I: $199.99 75095: TIE Fighter: $199.99 60097: City Square: $189.99 10246: Detective's Office: $159.99 total: $2,129.90 (5.97% increase from 2014) average: $212.99 2014 75059: Sandcrawler: $299.99 42030: Volvo L350F Wheel Loader: $249.99 70810: MetalBeard's Sea Cow: $249.99 60052: Cargo Train: $199.99 71006: The Simpsons House: $199.99 76023: The Tumbler: $199.99 10243: Parisian Restaurant: $159.99 10241: Maersk Line Triple-E: $149.99 10244: Fairground Mixer: $149.99 60051: High-Speed Passenger Train: $149.99 total: $2,009.90 average: $200.99 If you ignore the 1st and 10th set from each year, so to ignore the Millennium Falcon Elephant in the room: 2017: total: $1,989.92 (-11.56%) 2016: total: $2,249.92 (+38.89%) 2015: total: $1,619.92 (+3.85%) 2014: total: $1,559.92 Maybe LEGO went a little overboard in 2016 and now we are exhausted in 2017?
  6. The Darktic Roller - Mod of 70911

    I may get this set just to replace that skateboard limo from the Palace Cinema set.
  7. I ordered a backordered item and the order included some free promo items. Will LEGO hold those promo items for me until my whole order is available? Or is it possible that by the time my order is ready to ship, they run out of my promo items?
  8. LEGO Dimensions Discussion

    They scanned one of the dimensions packs and didn't see the offer come up. They pretty much have the computer/register determine the available offers. I didn't really push the issue so let me know if you have different results. Ultimately I had to buy regular LEGO sets to qualify. With two separate transactions, I bought enough to get two of the promos. They still had the ninjago promo from the previous week, but the system wouldn't let it be scanned under the promo. So they scanned another batman promo set but put the ninjago one in my bag.

    Lego Dimensions don't qualify for Toysrus' Bricktober promotions.
  10. Deep Sea Underwater Display

    I want to see more of that dragon! I think in the last pic, we only see its rather large head.
  11. The LEGO Batman Movie Set/CMF Rumors & Discussion

    Do you think Lego Dimensions packs count?
  12. 70922 The Joker Manor

    I was expecting something on the level of Ninjago City, but this is just meh.

    The sad thing is, in the US, amazon is not even selling wave 9. I think there is some contract dispute with Warner Bros, but c'mon!
  14. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    To me, it's seems rather unlikely for LEGO to explicitly mention the page count of the Carousel manual and then suddenly, in the same sentence, change units. Some people have speculated that 2.56x refers to the volume or dimensions of the manual, but if that number refers to parts count, then not only are we changing the units, but also the object being measured.
  15. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Not sure if it's relevant, but it looks to have the same number of rings as the original UCS book (21 rings). But the original UCS had just over 300 pages, so with this one having much more pages, I hopeful that this is not just a re-release.
