    Lego Superheroes 2013 Rumours & Discussion

    Ugh...I HATE TOYS R US!!! I went down to my local one today (looking for something else) and happened to wander down the LEGO aisle. I looked around noticing the usual ridiculous price increases ($95 for the Quinjet?!?!? WTF?!?!?). Anyway, upon closer inspection I noticed price tags for the IM3 sets. They had a pretty small markup plus $20 off a $75 purchase, but the sets weren't on the shelves. :( So I went to the Customer Service desk to check out and asked the younger lady working there if she could please check thier back room inventory for LEGO Iron Man 3. Instead, being the lazy "you-know-what" the typical, useless workers at my TRU are, she just checks the website to see if thry're "in-stock". Of course, the only results that appeared were the two Avengers sets. I have been shopping at TRU for years, and I know the difference between their store stock program and the store website. I tried explaining this to her, but she insisted that this was all she could do. So, I requested the manager, to which she replied "They're all busy." So, i bought what I had and stormed out of the store with "Have a nice day ringing in my ears". Now, I know they had them in the back as the price tags were out, so don't give me any of this "We don't have it", TRU. AGH!!! I was so close to having them. SMH

    Lego Superheroes 2013 Rumours & Discussion

    Yeah I agree, but unfortunately LEGO's license does not extend to films preceding The Avengers. Even if it did, I don't think they would focus on those films (been there done that kind of thing).

    The seller of the War Machine figure has added a new post with updated pics! The figure definetly looks legit. Can't wait to get it! http://www.ebay.com/itm/LEGO-SUPER-HEROES-MARVEL-DC-UNIVERSE-IRONMAN-3-MINIFIGURE-WAR-MACHINE-UNRELEASED-/190783014929?pt=Building_Toys_US&hash=item2c6b8dc811
  5. No they did get the rights as it was categorized under Lucasfilms and distributed by Paramount. Crownie is correct about them having no immediate plans for Indy.
  6. Yeah it was so cool seeing it at the end even if it doesn't look much like the actual building. In reality, there would be no way for them to just sit there on the corner. The place is perpetually busy!
  7. The really sad thing about Planes is that it is not even being made by Disney's main animation teams. It was on the lowest of lows as a start-up to test a new group of animators. But, some high up exec saw a money-making opportunity and decided to screw the people of the world by tricking them into thinking it's made by Pixar by calling it a "spin-off" Here's my list of Pixar films in order from least favorite to favorite: Brave: Bland and boring princess movie filled with false advertising about the story. Cars 2: Just, not good. WALL-E: I just don't like it for some reason. No matter how hard I try, I can't make i t through the movie a second time. Cars: It's just ok to me. A Bug's Life: I like it, it's just not my favorite. Probably because you can't relate to the characters. Finding Nemo: A good film but the animation isn't great, even compared to that of even the first Toy Story. (At this point I really LOVE all of the following and I am judging based on nostalgia, entertainment, and fun!) Ratatouille: A fun a re-watchable cooking movie with fun! I just love it. The Incredibles: Definitely deserves a sequel! A fantastic super-family movie reminiscent of the Fantastic Four. Toy Story 2: Fun and enjoyable with new characters but ultimately doesn't live up to its predecessor. Monsters, Inc.: One of the best! I saw it 4 times in theaters! Toy Story 3: A fantastic heartfelt conclusion to the trilogy! Toy Story: The original! A classic! It was hard not to put this as #1. Up: Same as above but with a truly fantastic original story! (It got a bonus point for including Fenton's Ice Cream at the end. It is an Ice Cream place 30 mins. from my house and is my favorite restaurant in the whole wide world. Also close to Pixar hub.) http://images.nymag....ons_560x375.jpg

    Yeah these of course are the "official" releases, but I sure you're right. Licensed sets (like Avengers) do tend to hit shelves early.

    LOTR & The Hobbit 2012

    To everyone looking for Hobbit sets at Walmart, a word of advice: Make sure you look around for them. They aren't (at least at mine) in the main LEGO aisle. Also a funny thing, when I visted another Walmart yesterday, they had a stand at least 6 aisles away from the LEGO one and one side of the stand was filled with Riddles for the Ring sets. It was 5 shelves high, 2 boxes tall, 3 boxes deep, and 6 boxes wide! That is a hell of a lot of sets.

  23. Went back to my local TRU yesterday... They were already sold out of polybags and had no Hobbit sets on the shelf. I asked the guy I know that is in charge of inventory and he said that they hadn't even gotten any Hobbit, just LOTR. DANG! I was really hoping to do a little Black Friday shopping tonight.
  24. Mine was a Toys R Us with Babies R Us.
