It has all 4 Ninja's in 1 set (Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane)
Not even Epic Dragon Battle has that.
Of course it doesn't have Lloyd, but then what does! :) (besides EDB of course)
Also, is that quantity a daily limit, a weekly limit, a forever limit??? Thanks.
One look at 9441, 9442, 9444 you know they belong to the ninjas, not so much 9449.
Hey I just had a thought, if you buy 9440, 9441, 9442, and 9444 you get all 4 ninjas for only $6 more than 9449. Plus, if you buy the encyclopedia, for $11 more you get Lloyd as well...
Now I see why the ninjago minifigs are selling so well on eBay... :)
As for how long it lasts I think it can vary... I know that there are times where it seems like a month before I can buy something again that was 'limited' by Amazon for purchase I guess it also depends on if there is a sale going on on the time as well
Now, back on topic, and I know it has been discussed at some point in this lengthy thread, but does anyone have any insights or thoughts on the retirement of the first wave of DC/Marvel sets? Are they going to be on the typical two year plan, or will some of these go earlier?
I haven't paid much attention to them since my kids aren't really into them, so I don't even know if there is a "2nd wave" coming or not.
Batman & Spider-Man sets - definitely good investment. (Highlighted by Dynamic Duo). You just can't go wrong on any of these.
Avengers - most will be pretty solid
Superman - because of the figs - this set is really good
X-Men sets - below average returns
The "bionicle" type figures - just stay away from (except Iron Man)
My 2 cents.
Similarly, I was going to pick up some Zombies sets only to discover they have simply vanished.
Will be interesting to watch.
I'm talking about the Cars #8679 & #8639 which obviously have been bad resellers. I know at the price im paying I can sell them for a profit but I think they will move slow and I'm worried the price could go even lower.
To bad there were no people in the "Cars" world so they could have added minifigures to the sets.
Just a minute ago I picked up 2 more of them, they seem to have made plenty of them this year, no complaints. :)
Actually Gund makes some very nice bears, if you haven't received one of these free bears yet, they are very soft and nice, I'd easily expect to pay $15 for one in a retail store.
*stares over at growing stack of bears*
Hmm, now what to DO with all those bears... :)
I bought 2 thinking there would be a lot of common parts between it and the UCS MF (there weren't!), but I did only pay £66 each for them. As the MF seems to be out for a while and then take a significant break from the SW roster (unlike the X-wing), along with it's evergreen desirability as a ship in the SW world, I think they'll do quite well before the next incarnation turns up.
Tis the season... plus you could write it off.
My postman has a 10 year old daughter, so he got one. My daughter's friends each got one, etc.
Ok, I can't write any of that off, but it made for nice gifts. :)
I'll give 10 to Children's Medical Center and 10 to Toys for Toys, then probably the rest to family and friends.
My own daughter will probably keep 4 or 5 however. :)
Will kids like it? Perhaps. AFOLs? Probably not.
I think I have 8 or 10 of them on a shelf, but that is just because I like to have 8 or 10 of everything, just in case I get surpised, not because I think it is a great set.
In this case, they were BOGO50 at B&N plus member rewards plus $10 gift cards, so my net cost on them was about 40% off.
At that price, I'll take a flier on any set LEGO makes, but I'd never pay retail for this set.
Not exactly related to the topic: I could see some ingenious people modding The Mine set to resemble the junkyard showdown from Superman 3 between bad Supes (just dirty him up a bit) and the Alien Conquest business man (Clark Kent): http://www.brickset.com/minifigs/?m=ac004
Before anyone disses Superman 3, you have to admit that scene alone is probably the coolest from the entire series of films.
"You always wanted to fly Kent, well now here's your chance!"
#9446 Destiny's Bounty
#8070 Super Car
#8109 Flatbed Truck
#9446 and #8070 are no longer is stock online anywhere in the US as far as I can tell. #8109 is sold out on Lego.com but still available at TRU online.
My apologies if these have been recently discussed- I did a search but didn't find much within the last couple of weeks or so relating to the US market.
