Office machine / Maybe government or department machine?
Kalais posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesOffice machine? I am not sure that's proper title. I am not English native. Maybe government or department machine? Maybe something else? Check out description and photos and tell me what would be better. Anyway it is hidden behind a puppet mindlessly obeying orders. Manipulated puppet doesn't even know that he is performing acts of evil. He is the link in the system, it's integral part. Getting his hands on the all kinds of goods and passes them to his soulless master.

Buying Lego in Germany - tax refund?
sarusaru posted a topic in Buy, Sell, Trade and FindsHi guys! I'm an exchange student from Thailand. I'll be living in Germany till year end, and I'm super excited that there are two LEGO stores not too far from where I live; LEGO Store Wiesbaden and Frankfurt! The point is, as a non-EU resident, I know I can get some tax refunds for my lego purchases when I leave the EU. However, when I ask for more details about this, the two LEGO stores had different answers for me. So I would like to ask you guys on here instead. Here are my questions: 1. How many months do I have, from the time of purchase, till I have to take my lego out of EU and still get a tax refund? -- the guy in LEGO Wiesbaden told me I have to export the goods within 3 months, but the people at Frankfurt store told me 6 months. I'm lost! 2. I've been told that I also have to show the items to customs officers at airport in order to get the customs stamp on my tax refund form. However, the store clerk told me that the lego also has to be in its unopened, unused, original packaging. Is this true?? Can I open and build it first, then repack? Thanks in advance!
