Hope that the parts will eventually come on line and be available for purchase as they once were.
Despair realizing that my hope is likely misplaced and is either a long ways off, or will never actually come about.
I ordered about 100 unique parts that added up to about 1200 total parts. The order is split into two sections when I look it up, some in Warehouse and some Standard. The majority are in Warehouse while some are in Standard and it says the Standard ones will take up to 28 days. From what I see here I think I'll be getting 2 orders, which makes sense so far.
Then yesterday I get an email that they're getting ready to ship 9 unique parts...which doesn't line up with either the Warehouse or Standard list on my order page. So now I'm going to be getting a bunch of smaller orders shipped as they get them?? These might be from the best sellers list, but it doesn't say that anywhere.
There's also no consistency on what they show in each document. My orders page includes a handful of part numbers (most are missing), but has quantity and price for everything. My original receipt has part name and quantity. The shipping notice shows part number and name.
I really hope they clean this all up. At this point I'll need a spreadsheet just to make sense of this all and verify they actually send me everything I ordered.
I don't know. I placed an order not too long ago and the one thing says 11-15 days, but the actual confirmation says 28 days. So who knows. I didn't order the best sellers.
Sadly I will no long expect to get any of the animals I will want in these newer sets due out if LEGO will never put them in stock on their site, nor allow you to buy them via a call to CS anymore.
If thats the case, I guess its not too surprising. Once LEGO found out what prices people were charging for animals on BL they either wanted that action or wanted to stop it so people would have to buy their outrageously expensive sets, like the '4+' farm set due out.
Now whether LEGO actually pays attention to these surveys... we will see.
Probably a bit like the little builds they do or used to do for the PAB walls in store. Where you could pick particular models with instructions if you wanted to.
BrickLink has the part for $3-$5 USD.

Even more interesting is that Lego sells the a set that contains this part for $50. https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/frozen-ice-castle-10899, I suppose they're discouraging people from buying lots of these parts...?
UK site has a message saying standard bricks are paused until January.
But don't ask me why.
Similar happened to me recently. They sent me an email saying they are having problems charging me, even though it was a partial order that was already shipped and charged. And since they don't charge until they ship, I didn't get it. They sent another email saying I owe them more money because they can't charge me, yet they shipped my PAB order and charged my account...so who knows what's up with their IT department.
New parts have been showing up on PAB today. The Out of Stock button is now working and many new parts have been added. A lot of parts from the Lion Knight's Castle set #10305 have been being added with some selling out sporadically throughout the day. Torso's & heads from the Table Football set are showing but most other than a couple of heads don't appear to actually have been available to order yet.
It also reopened for UK buyers yesterday but not much new worth buying for us yet.
