    Oh man, I wish I had not seen this!
    I need a T-rex for the tree!!!

    Why do we not get good stuff like this in Somerset?!

    ^Are these not available via [email protected]?
  • jon_kjon_k UKMember Posts: 227
    not that i know of \
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,272
    These particular baubles haven't been available via [email protected], at least not in the UK. The rest have been but now appear to be sold out.

    I definitely saw both the Friends and City Christmas baubles with the 'classic' and monochrome brick-filled baubles and a bunch of other Christmas stuff at Legoland Windsor, all at £7 each?, but that was a good 5 or 6 weeks ago, but no sign of the T-Rex bauble then (availability may have changed since!). Might be useful for you to know @LostInTranslation? ;-)

    Anyone wanting to check, they were on the standalone shelving unit by the lifesize Lego Laval minifig, facing it.

    I'd love to go and check again before the season is over, but work is getting in the way! :-(

    These will probably to available from [email protected] very shortly. LDC sometimes gets these small sets/polys/keychains early.

    Postage on these baubles will not be cheap due to their size. Cheapest option would probably be by Hermes if sending more than 1.

    The best deal is to buy the empty baubles which are £2.99 and you are allowed to fill each one either from the PAB wall or you can build a minifig to put inside - I of course filled mine with interesting PAB stuff then got home and put a Santa in one and the Christmas elf in the other they look fab

    The only decent toy shop is in Taunton , East Reach , he has a couple of older sets in stock
  • LegobutterflyLegobutterfly Member Posts: 488
    ^ I might have to have a look there, thanks for the tip :)
    I have seen some of the toy shops in Taunton on the way too and from Musgrove Park and often wondered what they were like.

    The toy master in Burnham On Sea is about the best I have found so far but even that is not great.

    Most of my purchasing getting done online

    ^ will ask mum if she will pop back before she comes down, but cannot promise,

    ^^ Oh bless you, thanks that is really kind of you to offer to ask your mum.

    I would be very grateful but of course completely understand that it may not be possible.

    According to my catalog, these aren't supposed to be released until November. Why is it always the Discovery Centers that often put out the seasonal sets well before they are to be released

    Watkin's Toys in Taunton is a wonderful place because it's run as a good, old-fashioned toyshop with Airfix models and racks and racks of paints to choose from...it does stock Lego, but I don't know whether it always has the latest stuff. And it's run by a lovely old-fashioned-toyshop sort of chap.

    They had the fire engine in Windsor along with the usual trees and reindeer ones. I didn't see the friends one but wasn't really looking. Also didn't see the red one whatever it's meant to be? A Dinosaur I presume?
  • cody6268cody6268 Member Posts: 268
    Are the parts inside glued?
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,725
    Was at Windsor yesterday picking some up. No Dinosaurs there, just the usual three available from [email protected], the Fire Truck and the Friends one. They were extremely limited on the Fire Truck (56 left at the time) but two hundred and something of the Friends ones.
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,272
    ^^ no not glued, you have to build them.

    Kudos to anyone who can build them without opening the bauble.
