[US] Polys in the wild...

    I took my kids to get the accessory pack today and they were out at the Stonebriar store.  The staff there said they weren't getting anymore, either.  Apparently there was an event last weekend and they burned through most of them then.  They gave my daughter the Batwing poly to make up for it, and we were happy with that.

    Target in St. Louis Park MN had a LOT of polys by the checkouts today. I picked up #30276, #30278, #30447, and #30354. I think I got the last 30276 and 30278. They still had a lot of the other two, as well as a bunch of #30279 which I already have. No great deals though. 

    Every Target around here has a box of #30522 in the valentines section, with the other small toys.

    @ecmo47 - Do you happen to have the TRU R# for #30521 so we can look it up and ask at the store if it is not out?

    Looks like I'll have to visit my only TRU. I'm sure I'll be bitterly disappointed though.

    I just came back from my local TRU after reading @ecmo47 post... no luck :-(

    Tons, and I mean TONS of #30546 Krypto Saves the Day. Grabbed an extra one for good measure ;-)

    Got my #30521 - it'll probably be a promo next week & I don't feel like paying overinflated TRU prices on sets just to get it

    That's what I'm thinking. So far I have manage to buy them at regular price even when they are promo.

    That same store had several A-wing pilots, plenty of Summer Olaf, and some Chickenman set and Ninjago sets.

    Called the other Lego Store in the Dallas area and they're out of the TLBM accessory pack too.  This thing lasted all of two weeks here.  I've seen the Nexo Knights accessory pack at a few Walmarts, so maybe it will show up another way at retail.

    Has anyone confirmed where #40268 can be acquired? Jang reviewed one today and he didn't highlight were he got it. 
  • gmonkey76gmonkey76 ChicagoMember Posts: 1,531
    @dspigel My guess is May 4th for #40268

    One guy apparently cleaned out the LDC (Schaumburg IL) of all its #30523 Joker battle Training.. If that is the case, it is a bit annoying to say the least.

    That's a shame. They need to limit purchases so others have the chance. Cleaning out polybags...that's no easy feat assuming they look like they do in the above pic.

    A huge mahalo to @norm103 for helping me out with these.

    Yeah, hoping that TRU gets these later in the year like they did with the #30448 Spider man Vs. the Alien Symbiote.

    I get getting a few spares, but to be allowed to buy 20-30 of a poly.. that is just nuts.

    Grrrr...well that explains why they didn't have any when I was there last weekend.

    I'll be honest. I bought out all the reindeer (18) and half the Friends polys (about 12) at my local Target before Christmas because they were given to my students as Xmas gifts. Did I feel guilty? Kinda. But I was more ecstatic that I found them at one store and didn't have to drive around town hunting them down.

    Actually, from what I heard from an employee, they only got them on this past Tuesday.

    the same thing happened at LDC (Westchester NY). it never fails, when the cool polys are found and reported, these guys swoop in. i missed out on the venom symbiote only to be saved by TRU

  • MegtheCatMegtheCat Houston, TXMember Posts: 500
    @77ncaachamps If you were giving them as gifts that's nothing to feel guilty over. Most likely the people swooping in to clear out the #30523 are the ones selling them on EBay now. I saw a listing where "more than 10" were available with 69 sold.

    By the way, I saw a bunch of #30474 at TRU yesterday, so there may still be some out there in other areas.

    @77ncaachamps i think it's cool that you do something special for your your students. that's definitely not something you should feel guilty about. i pick up extras to share with my nephews and occasionally for friends who help me track down polys that end up with my nephews. i hope i can find Joker Battle Training soon so i can give it to them as part of the goodie bag after watching the movie together. it will go nicely with Batman in the Phantom Zone. gotta have the minifigs =]

    i found #30521 Mini Batmobile at TRU yesterday and bought a few.

    Thanks, @nychromastone and @MegtheCat.

    I'm happy to have done it. It's better (and pricier) than giving candy and little cheap throw-ins.

    I get that people could be doing it for a worthwhile purpose. Does not make it any less annoying to people looking for 1-2 of them IMO.
    I also did not say anyone should be 'guilty'. I just expressed that it is annoying when people buy them all. In this instance, due to the fact there is ONE LDC in IL, and I have to drive about 30 minutes to get to it to find out apparently 1 guy has been buying up all (or most) the stock. It is not like this is one in 4-5 stores around my area that could all have these (like a Target, for example).
    Could I call to see if they have them? I guess, but that is also relying on the fact of getting someone on the phone who is not just going to say 'yeah sure we got them' and they in fact do not, or have a few, will not hold them, and they are gone before I get there.
    It also does not change the impression that one guy is walking in and buying them all and doing this all the time apparently (as the employee knows 'the guy').
    When you are one store in the entire area, it would be nice to see some sort of limits imposed on sought after polys, especially when they apparently did it with the release of #30448 previously.

    Buying for students from one store out of 4-5 that all have stocks of these? That is one thing. Going to the one store in the state to buy up all the stock (for whatever reason) is annoying to me. Sorry.

    You can take comfort knowing the same guy probably still has a big pile of Dareth vs Nindroid he can't sell as well.

    Feb. 18-20 and Feb. 25-26......not sure about  anything exclusive printed brick since I collect those,  but it seems like they are phasing these out as they often use the factory tour space for other things during special events these days.

    According to TheBrickFan, there are sightings of #30523 Joker battle training appearing at Walmarts on the East coast now. Will be happy if these were not limited to LEGOLANDs only.

    @madforLEGO i totally agree with you. sorry if you thought i was defending the guy. i actually have stronger words that i   would use over annoying.

    @madforLEGO I didn't take it that way. No apology needed. Just expressing my feeling of guilt knowing I may have cleared out one Target. Luckily, there are multiple in this large city but still.

    As for the a--hat that hoards them, maybe if you were to talk or address via letter to the management about placing quantity limits on the poly bags. Express your outrage, disgust, etc. about how unfair it is for a person to buy them all without allowing other patrons to enjoy them.

    That's what I would do. Not saying it'd work but it's worth exploring.

    the store at Lego Land california, is it in the park or can you access the store without having to purchase a ticket into the park?

    thanks
  • Russell844Russell844 California, USAMember Posts: 1,898
    Unless they changed the policy, you can get a 30 minute shopping pass. If you are longer they charge you for a ticket. The shop is inside the park.

    Russell844 and caifrsh78, It's actually 1 hour. From Legoland's website... Guests who enter the Park using the one-hour Shopper's Pass and spend more than $20 while in the Park, will be refunded the $17 parking fee when you present your paid parking ticket at the Guest Services window.


  • Russell844Russell844 California, USAMember Posts: 1,898
    Thanks for that. I've only done it once years ago. I thought it sounded wrong when I typed it. :)

    The Quarterfield Road Walmart in Glen Burnie MD had #30523 Joker Battle Training out today. They were in a large, yellow center aisle display with another LBM Lego set and a couple other non-Lego sets. $3.99.

    The stores are all inside the park. You have to pay for a full price admission before going to shop. If you leave the park within an hour, you can go to the customer service desk and ask for a refund of the admission cost. If you also spend over $20 in the stores, you can ask for a refund of the parking costs.

    Went to a Walmart and no go. Went to another and found one opened #30523 where apparently someone really wanted the Joker. Picked up a few CMF Batman packs, then as we went to checkout my GF saw two of the #30523 sitting on a checkout aisle shelf, apparently someone changed their minds and thank God for Walmart's inattentive staff. But a bit disappointing, it would appear there more AFOLs in the area that clean out the stores.
    OR these were somewhere else in the store and I just missed them (but I did walk around the store and did not see them)
