Hi all

Living in the Midlands I do no have a lego store to go to for my purchases and am 100% reliant on lego.com.

At the start of feb I am going to Manchester and will visit the store there and then in April I am in Cardiff so will visit that store. It's just by look at the two cities I visit this year have lego stores.

My question is what are these two stores lik? Are they any good? Aka are they reliant stores and when I go should I expect lots of stock for most items?

    Brand stores are generally well stocked all year round, except just before Christmas. There may be a few popular sets not on the shelf, but not many.

    Cheers huw

    ^I would say get UCS Slave 1 but you can get that from lego.com so buy a small set: a microfighter or something. You would have to pay shipping if you would get it from lego.com.

    Well my thinking is the tumblr released last year, or if its in stock the r2 d2 as its one I have been looking at for 12 months

    Knowing me I'll end up getting the new valentines day seasonal set though

    If the R2-D2 is still available that´s a good idea. It retired and it´s a great set. I can really recommend it. Nice build, cool features and great movie-accurate look.

    Seriously, the ship has sailed on this one. Secondary market is your only option. No Lego stores in the UK will have these in stock.

    Well I wasn't to know....Jesus

    If it not there it's not there I'll see if there is anything else available for my liking

    ^ Most likely there isn´t R2 but sometimes the stores surprise with some retired sets... really just sometimes...
