    @Pitfall69‌ Did you buy any from Target's preorder?
  • juggles7juggles7 United StatesMember Posts: 452
    It worked for me.
  • pumperxpumperx Member Posts: 106
    thanks, just ordered 3.
  • IwantmorelegosIwantmorelegos USAMember Posts: 38
    It won't let me buy 1 either. And I have not ordered one from the preorder.

    You have to keep trying.
    It failed on me constantly after submitting my payment via paypal (the payment does not go through until a successful order), but then finally let me complete the order.

    Target is doing something crazy with the listing. Maybe only making a certain amount per hour available.

    I have tried 6 times already and I can't finish the transaction. :(
  • margotmargot Member Posts: 2,310
    @akunthita, I have an extra if you need one.
  • chuckpchuckp NYMember Posts: 683
    Just tried too, I think they are sold out now.

    @margot, thanks for the offer, I really appreaciate it. Where are you located? I'm in Florida. I don't have a LEGO store near me and I could never get it online. :(

    It took me 20 or more attempts over the past hour, but I finally received order confirmation.

    This above, You have to keep trying, the listing has been acting weird. Though they could be near sold out, however if you see the number 'Sold' keep rising then you can still buy them.
    What I did was tried to buy (entered paypal info) then submitted when it failed with that error (none are available, if you keep receiving this error...) I just used the back button to the checkout screen and tried to pay again, and again, and again, until I got the confirmation of success. You will not get billed until you succeed as well, at least that is what occurred with me. Now I will say I did buy last night, so they could be low on stock now, but I keep seeing the number sold rise as i type this so I presume they still have them

    I haven't even been able to add it too my cart! I tried at 12:45am and watched it for an hour and then again around 10am...still nothing...the only thing I can do is change the quantity.
  • TheLoneTensorTheLoneTensor MericaMember Posts: 3,950
    Yes, keep trying over and over.

    Normally I would be complaining about such bad technology, but in this case, it seems to have culled the lazy lions away from the zebra carcass, and I was actually able to order one, so kudos for luck and perseverance.

    Ok....I figured out the trick to getting your order to go through. Before hitting the order button you have to put your right thumb on your nose while hopping on one foot until you say the whole alphabet backwards. Then hit the order button. If that doesn't work keep repeating until it does. Shouldn't take more then 30 or 40 tries at most.

  • ryjayryjay Member Posts: 976

    Now it's out of stock. I didn't see what the final number sold was.
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 9,188
    My guess is 350-400
  • DavidBrickleyDavidBrickley Richmond, VAMember Posts: 338
    479 sold, per the listing.

    Just so I'm clear, when I see notes "available again", I'm assuming this means at RRP?

    Seeing as it's "available" right now, and will always be available at Amazon until the end of Amazon, yes, it's only worth noting when it's at MSRP.

    I'd also go so far as to say that even most of those such notes are useless, given that the window to grab it is usually 5 minutes.
  • pharmjodpharmjod 1,170 miles to Wall Drug, USAMember Posts: 2,848
    Yeah, you are pretty much on the wrong site if you want rapid in stock status on hot items. The BP horde wipe that stuff out pretty quickly.

    Got it, thanks. Still pretty new around here, so apologies for the rather dumb question. On the other hand, I know now what "BP" is...checked out their site and my head exploded...

    This was on the banner for that listing.

    "This listing is restricted to pre-approved buyers only. Email the seller to be placed on that pre-approved list."

    How does one become a pre-approved buyer? I emailed them so will see what happens.

    Who or what is the "BP horde"?

    FWIW there are a lot of LEGO fans on that site too.

    Hmm, I do not see that. Considering I ordered from the site over the weekend, and received a shipping notice, and never had to sign up for anything, I wonder if that is something new they added after they were sold out? But I see do not see any such banner on the eBay Target listing.
    I think eBay does allow for such auctions/listings, but did not see anything like that when I bought mine.
    I think you normally have to email them so they can add you to an allowed bidder/buyer list for that item.

    Yep, it was added after we both got our purchase in, and was there for most of the day yesterday. Looks like they have removed it earlier this morning.

    And gone from Wal-Mart. That was a record so far for in stock status.

    I'm not surprised really as I doubt there were those that were just getting two and I'm guessing Walmart's system did not stop those from ordering multiples either.
