For Sale (Charity): full set of The Simpsons Minifigures (UK) with a donation to Fairy Bricks

StormKittyStormKitty Member Posts: 268
Finally... after checking almost on a daily basis including last night, the Hairy Fairy has had the pleasure in informing me that The Simpsons minifigs have finally arrived tonight in my local WHSmiths store.

Just like The LEGO Movie ones, I am offering these at £40 plus postage, your choice of First Class Signed For at £4.10 or Second Class Signed For at £3.70. I currently have a reusable £5 off £15 spend voucher which would again allow a £13.28 per full set donation to Fairy Bricks, drop me a PM if you were interested in a buying a full set.

There were some pre-order requests previously mentioned on The LEGO Movie thread so @cheshirecat‌, @Jabba_the_Taff‌, @TheOneVeyronian‌, @msanders‌, @minifigman11‌, @Ariela‌ and @J4ch1n6868, drop me a PM if you were still wanting a full set.

Thanks for looking!

KT

    ^ only daft £5 off £20 spend ones running from 5 to 11 May being given out this week but I'll pop into store again next week to see if they have any different ones. Bring back the good old £5 off £12 spend pretty polly please!

    Another set and donation from @Jabba_the_Taff‌, thanks to you the new total is now £53.12 :)

    I didn't realise until I posted the first three sets today that Royal Mail have increased their prices by 20p, so postage costs will now be:
    £4.30 First Class Signed For
    £3.90 Second Class Signed For

    Having to use the £5 off £20 spend vouchers this week :( but it's still a £9.76 donation per full set as the Hairy Fairy says. So thanks to sets sold today to another non Bricksetter, @MinifigsMe‌ and @AntM‌, the donation total is now £108.96! Well worth having sore thumbs to take it over the £100 mark :)

  • StormKittyStormKitty Member Posts: 268
    ^ aww, thank you @Phonebooth‌ but it's really all down to Bricksetters (and non Bricksetters) buying the sets and supporting Fairy Bricks :)

    Donation total has increased again to £138.24 thanks to sets just bought by @blahblah‌ and @meccanotwitch‌, looks like I will be heading back to the store again tomorrow :)

    I opened all the figures yesterday, and was amazed how @StormKitty‌ managed to work out individual figure without opening the bag... I was also worried to have duplicate figures from the Simpsons house, but they are all a bit different. Love this set, thanks KT!

  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,359
    My daughter has started opening her set a few figures each day now, funny to watch her guess and be sure she is getting duplicates and then watch her surprise when each one is different :) only four open so far so at least a week to go. Good fun though - thanks

    @StormKitty £5 off a £15 spend being given out today!
  • StormKittyStormKitty Member Posts: 268
    ^ thank you! just got some along with lots of Spidey polys for Fairy Bricks :)
  • msandersmsanders Member Posts: 903
    @stormkitty I've got a few lego vouchers and till vouchers that I won't need having bought the daily mail and got the poly. Hopefully I will get some more this week with the newspaper-poly deal. Would you like me to send these to you at the end of the week once I've got most of them? The till voucher ends Sunday 18th and the lego Voucher ends 25th so as long as their with you by Saturday this shod be fine?

  • StormKittyStormKitty Member Posts: 268
    ^ yes please, thats ever so kind and thoughtful of you, thank you so so much :)
  • msandersmsanders Member Posts: 903
    Just PM me the address you want them sent to sometime this week.

    @Stormkitty If you PM me too with your address I can send you two more £5 off £20 vouchers that are valid until Sunday 18th. The WHSmiths I've visited in the past two days hasn't been handing out Lego vouchers, just graze ones so I'll be sure to ask tomorrow. I'm sure they'll give me a few if they have them and I can pop them in the envelope to you too.

    @stormkitty I have just got my Daily Mail poly and have been given a £5 off a £20 spend till voucher plus a £5 off a £15 spend on toys printed voucher. Would you like me to send them to you at the end of the week when the promotion is over along with any others I might pick up?

    I have kept sales within the UK but @jadestaples‌ earlier today was kind enough to purchase both a Simpsons set along with a LEGO Movie set, both were posted out to Australia.

    Each full set weighs approx 200g. International Tracked Small Parcel prices can be found using this link if anyone is interested (or is willingly to pay the postage), please note each set will need to be insured for the RRP value of £40 http://www.postoffice.co.uk/price-finder

    I am now using the LEGO £5 off £15 vouchers which they started giving out last Saturday. The small print states that ALL £15 spend must be on Kids' books, toys, games or art, so Fairy Bricks donations using these new vouchers work out to be £11.36 per set (by splitting it into separate transactions of 7 minifigs). Previously with the till spit £5 off £15 spend vouchers, I could 'top up' to achieve a £15 spend by buying a 8p carrier bag as suggested by @LostInTranslation‌ :) Challenge to Bricksetters out there, can anyone find something small that I can purchase that meets this 'LEGO promo' voucher criteria? If so, it could mean a slightly bigger donation per set sold for Fairy Bricks.

    So based on the set purchased by @jadestaples‌ today and a set brought by a non Bricksetter at the weekend, a further £22.72 has been donated to Fairy Bricks, so grand total so far is £160.96.

  • tom4086tom4086 Member Posts: 689
    Okay, maybe it's late and Im not thinking straight, but wouldn't the best way be to wait until you had three sets requested and buy all 48 minifigures with vouchers? As 48 is divisible by 6 and 16...
  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332
    Panini stickers are 50p and I'll buy them off you if that helps.

  • purple_hazepurple_haze Member Posts: 95
    @stormkitty, are you still taking orders for the Simpsons figure sets?
  • StormKittyStormKitty Member Posts: 268
    ^ yes I am, I'll drop you a PM.
  • pantboypantboy EnglandMember Posts: 210
    @StormKitty do you want or need any £5 off £15 WHSmith vouchers, I have 3 of them that you can have if you will actually make use of them, they expire on the 25th May
    SirKevbags
  • StormKittyStormKitty Member Posts: 268
    ^ thanks @pantboy‌, I think I have got a fair few now to keep us going until 25 May. Am back at my local store later tonight to pick up some polybags for Fairy Bricks so will grab a few more again, they still had a huge pile left last night.
    cheshirecatSirKevbags
  • pantboypantboy EnglandMember Posts: 210
    Ok, I will hang onto them so if you are running short in the next week or so send me a message and i'll get them in the post.
    StormKitty
  • StormKittyStormKitty Member Posts: 268
    I couldn't use the 50p Panini stickers as a 'top up' item but I did managed to find some 50p Hasbro activity books which did the trick, so we are back to the £13.28 donation per each full set :)

    So huge thanks to @purple_haze‌ and @prlee‌ for pushing the grand total up to £187.52 today.

    My local store were down to their last half box tonight (my Fairy Bricks doing I think) but fear not, they assure me that they should be getting a delivery tomorrow.

    I just received my full set of Simpsons minifigs from @StormKitty‌. I already had 4 and with her tips, I was able to correctly identify all the minifigs and leave the swaps sealed in their bags.

    If anyone needs sealed #71005-2 Bart, #71005-6 Grandpa, #71005-7 Ned or #71005-14 Scratchy let me know :)

    The WHSmiths stores round my way had stopped selling The LEGO Movie minifigs a few weeks back but I had a spare set in my KT stockpile. A very kind and generous @morezone‌ has just bought a set along with a set of the Simpsons minifigs as well pushing The LEGO Movie donation total up to £256.68 and the Simpsons donation total to a £253.92. Thank you kind sir!

    If anyone spots The LEGO Movie minifigs reduced anywhere then do let me know :)
  • Lego_StarLego_Star ... in a galaxy far, far away.Member Posts: 2,106
    @StormKitty‌
    Not the best reduction I know but John Lewis are selling the movie minifigs for £2.11 each. It's online too so they are probably price matching someone. I checked the price in Boots yesterday but back to £2.50 not the great £1.50 they were previously. I'll keep looking.

    Two full sets of Simpsons minifigs were requested over the weekend. With WHSmiths having not issued out any money off vouchers in the past two weeks I had to try Argos last night. Thanks to @Venunder's recent tip offs over on the Argos Deals thread, I managed to get two full sets but that wasn't without odd stares and questions from both store staff and random customers. I did manage to find a Bart Simpson for a couple's little boy so seeing the huge smile on his face was lovely.

    So with huge thanks to @TechnicMan‌ and @woodstock‌, another £21.27 will be on its way to Fairy Bricks, our overall grand total on Simpsons minifigs bought by everyone is £275.19 :)

    Hopefully WHSmith will get the vouchers back in action again soon. Especially with the new collectible minifigure Series being announced. I'll definitely want the entire collection.
