    Didn't realize this was already posted. Admin can delete.

    For what it's worth, I didn't see either of those threads until @jamiew posted his, apparently 3rd link. Redundancy can be good sometimes.

    Agreed, and my post was in no way meant to imply "this has already been brought up so why didn't you notice it?" (hence the smile). My posts like that are simply meant to help keep identical topics in one place for ease of reading.

    Redundancy is good sometimes when it's redundant and good...sometimes.

    Does anyone know how strict TRU is on ages? My boy is 4.5 but is small so most think he is 3.5. That is until he talks because he has the vocabulary of a 6 yr old and he has built countless sets targeted for much older kids. My local LEGO store is not strict about the age for such events but I never went to a TRU event. I assume they would not want to turn anyone away because they also want us to buy some sets.

    I've never seen them turn kids (or grown adults who act like kids) away. But it will probably depend on how busy the event is.

    Yeah, depends on how busy they are. My wife and I went to the May the 4th build after free comic book day and they were more than willing to let us participate.

    Yep, we always show up at about 1:30 and there is always plenty of parts left and they have never said no to giving me 4 or 5 extra sets.

    The police car looks slick, too bad we won't be near any Tru on Saturday.

    This depends greatly on the store and area. In my area for example, showing up after 1pm guarantees no promo items for us. Due to store traffics, they usually wrap up the event (as in clean up all tables etc) by 115pm for an event starting at noon.

    @dragonhawk I picked up an extra today, let me know if you want it.
  • mrseatlemrseatle Member Posts: 410
    Had to work so I missed it. I noticed today was also "free RPG day"... Missed that too.

    The Police Car is pretty slick and should be pretty easy to build with most extra random parts, or easy enough at a Pick a Brick wall. Was able to pick up two so I am excited, they go with the 3 I got from the Star Wars last month
