    We could easily use stacks of '80's 1x2 plates in Feats of Strength! Currently produced parts?  Not so much...

    I just bought a nice-looking #926 Command Centre on eBay, to add to my Classic Space "up to about 1981, blue, grey, trans-yellow" collection, which just leaves me with #924 and #6861 to go! :-)

    The JW sets are coming back in spurts at Walmarts too it seems. Raptor Escape surfaced at a Walmart not far from me.

    Just bought the two 2015 seasonal sets, #40124 Winter Fun and #40125 Santa's Visit and also the 2014 one #40106 Toy Workshop, as I want to add to my two WV sets and also "Christmas-up" my modulars, especially PS, with a few choice additions.
    They'll all go in the cupboard until closer to Christmas... :-)

    Today, I bought my first LEGO train. Which also means, today, I didn't buy my last LEGO train.

    I gave myself the VIP treatment today, just now! Like right now!
    I got 5% discount on my purchase of the SW Slave I set #75060 so it was priced at €189,99 instead of €199,99 and I redeemed all my VIP points of €45 in total which I have been saving up for a long time. So I got the coolest SW set out there from a galaxy far far away for: Tsjing! Tsjing! a whopping cool €144,99
    And it comes with that yummi Gingerbread house set too!
    I am so ecstatic!
    ps.
    Unfortunately it also means I am pretty much definitely done buying Lego for the rest of the year.
    Must - resist - any - and - all - temptation - to - buy - more!
    (I am such a brick junky)

    I bought the Ferrari F40 Today and Used £15 VIP Discount. So a gingerbread house and Ferrari for £55 was brilliant

    Broke down and bought a Dimensions starter pack with all of the Target coupons. Price matched from $100 USD to $84.99 (Walmart), then stacked the 10% gamer coupon with the 35% cartwheel coupon. Final price was just under $50 including taxes. Almost brought a tear to my eye with thoughts of Lego deals of yesteryear.

    Tonight I bought this service truck for my 7 year old at my local stop and shop supermarket for $13.99. I rarely ever look at toys at the supermarket but I was happy to see their little lego section.

    I just did two parts orders for my Taj Mahal and I finished paying my second order at 11:59 and 30 seconds PM!!! So I think I got 2 Gingerbread houses and double points ;)

    Don't buy much on Lego but decided to go for gingerbread house by going for 2 x Santa visit, 2 Winter fun. T 16 sky hopper , and the Dojo showdown. And used £25 in vouchers so all good for £53. 
  • JudgeChuckJudgeChuck UKMember Posts: 1,107

    @tick1970, I picked up #70756 Dojo Showdown as well, some road plates, #7280 and #7281, to go with my modulars, 2x #10700 and 1x #10699 baseplates, for my Minecraft MOCs, plus the Gingerbread House. Which was nice.
    I had to work from home on Thursday and Friday, due to car problems, so I haven't been able to pick up #926 Command Centre, #40106 Toy Workshop, #40124 Winter Fun and #40125 Santa's Visit, which have all been delivered to my office... Very frustrating!

    I thought the small print stipulated that TLG will only allow one 'Ginjahbread-house' per household?!
    It is a really cute gift set, that I think will be popular with many people, especially as a present. I suppose some households with multiple Lego fans might be disappointed with this restriction.
    ps.
    Good luck with your Taj Mahal project.

    ------------

    This is perhaps not the right topic to ask this, if anyone has that intel anyway, but I always wonder how many of these (exclusive) 'limited edition' gift sets TLG produces???
    10.000 or a 100.000 sets, I have no idea!

    I am referring just to sets such as: the gingerbread-house; Christmas train; little pirate set in special box; white classic astronaut with robot set in special box; Christmas elves toymaker tool shed; etc.
  • kiki180703kiki180703 Montreal, CanadaMember Posts: 1,037
    ^ Last time, for the Christmas Train, the small print also said one per household but I got two. I did two consecutive orders in the same day with the same vip card. For the number of sets produced, I don't know. Thanks for the wish! :o)

    Isn't it curious that you guys on the other side of the Atlantic got double VIP points (amounting to a discount of 10%) on 21-11-2015, but here we got 5% discount on big orders (€125 or over), and that on top of that different countries here in Europe had different deals and special offers. In NL there was only the Gingerbread house when you spend €65, but I read in the UK next to that certain sets were also reduced in price:

    ^ I agree with you that we got better deals here in North America;) Btw, the discounted sets were discounted by around 5%.

    Just ordered this year's Target Minifigure Cube. A tip for anybody else ordering — the offer for 20% off with promo code "TOYS" says in the terms and conditions that it excludes LEGO, but I was able to use it with no trouble for this purchase!

    Rare 2x4 bricks on bricklink [look up "3001special"]
    ...test bricks from the era when Lego were moving from the old style brick that didn't have the tubes to the new style that does.
    These were moulded by Bayer and BASF to test the "clutch" of the design and also test different colours
    Rarer that any set you'll buy.
    This guy has an amazing collection:

    Had $95 dollars on my VIP card so I bought a Ferris Wheel, Darth Vader, Chess Set, 2 Santa's Visit, Ecto-1, Dilophosaurus Ambush, and Pteranodon Capture. Also got 2 gingerbread houses and 3 2016 calendars. I was pretty happy to start building the only downside I used the rest of my employee discount for the year. :( Now I am just waiting until Jan 1st.

    Took the plunge and grabbed the Tumbler #76023 and got my 3rd Gigerbread House with it.

    I didn't want to be left standing in the rain like I did with metalbeards seacow that suddenly vanished from the [email protected] without being labelled 'retiring soon'. Ok, so it may be marketing ploy to sell more sets, but at least they let you know it may be gone in the next 6 - 9 months.

    I am however gutted that the Lego Calendar offer is in store only. The store closest to me is 3 hours drive ffs. I have what seems like a gaping hole on the wall where my calendar usually hangs and I havn't yet got one for 2016. :(

    I didn't have any #75049 Snowspeeder yet, to accompany my 2 AT-AT sets, so before they're not available any longer anywhere I quickly bought 2 Snowspeeders yesterday.
  • tecjamtecjam Germany / SwitzerlandMember Posts: 255
    Today I bought my first pirate ship - the #70413 Brick Bounty - which by @Yodalicious logic means it also won't be my last. (I know of at least 2 others I want but currently can't afford)

    ^ It definitely won't be. My first was actually the Caribbean Clipper back when I was 10 years old. I haven't added many since then though. Just 3 since coming out of my dark ages--Black Pearl, Pirate Ship Ambush, and Final Flight of Destiny's Bounty (I know most won't count that last one for obvious reasons, but I do). Seriously thinking of getting Brick Bounty as well. Even though it's new, it reminds me so much of my childhood.

    I highly recommend the Black Pearl. It's one of my favorite sets. Of course, it's appreciated so much it's almost out of reach to many. I got lucky and got a sealed one for $220 a little over a year ago (not so lucky though considering I could have bought it many times at RRP). Now it looks like sealed ones are close to $400.

  • tecjamtecjam Germany / SwitzerlandMember Posts: 255
    ^^ Oh, going by that I already had one - I already bought the Final Flight of Destiny's Bounty a while back but havn't built it yet.

    Yeah, I can see the Black Pearl being a nice model. The 2 ships I was referring to were Metalbeards Seacow - I chose to purchse the Ewok Village instead thinking it would be gone sooner (doh!) - and the Imperial Flagship.
  • YodaliciousYodalicious DagobahMember Posts: 1,366
    ^ It's probably semantics and Destiny's Bounty is not technically a "pirate ship" persay...and it flies, so there's that...but to me it's a ship and even has sails. I guess by that logic I could also count Jabba's Sail Barge. SURE! WHY NOT? Haha!

    Ahhhh welcome to collecting Pirate ships!  Nothing but glorious seas await!  No in all seriousness, if you don't already collect other Pirate sets it's a lot of fun, for me totally nostalgic.

    If you are looking to get Brick Bounty do it sooner rather than later, sold out at U.S. [email protected]; but widely available elsewhere.  Still, better to be safe than sorry.

    This is interesting and surprising do to the fact that you've been collecting for over 20 years since 1979, which you stated in another thread. :) You were there at the beginning of LEGO's classic themes. How come you never got a train until now?

    My first 15 years of collecting was my first 15 years of life, so many of those years the sets were whichever ones I got as presents. Back then I don't think I was interested in LEGO trains all that much. Not sure why. My cousin has a huge model train layout that was amazing. Maybe I wanted that as opposed to a LEGO one. (Of course, I never had one of those either.)

    Then when I got back into LEGO in 1999-2000 it was solely due to the release of the Star Wars theme.

    Fast forward to 2012-Present and I think I waited over 3 years since coming out of my dark ages because of the expense. That sounds ridiculous considering how much I've spent overall on LEGO, but none of the train sets excited me enough to spend that much on them. Then my son really, REALLY liked the High Speed Passenger Train. Then my wife said "that one is cool." Then it dropped to $109 on Amazon. I know it's not the most desirable of the LEGO trains. Probably one of the least based on what I read around here. But that price and the fact that my son (who is starting to love LEGO) and my wife (who normally has ZERO interest) both liked it, well, it became the first one...more than 36 years after I received my first LEGO set.

    And just like that, I now own 2. Hogwarts Express as well.

    ^Too bad. Imagine all of the 9 volt stuff you could have had! :) I have one 9V train and it's probably considered one of the less cooler ones but I like it.

     I may get into PF next year.#60052 looks cool and it has a cow!
