Or send them my way, I'll be happy to handle it. :-)
Some of what I've posted turned out to be true, and some did not. I've learned better what sources to listen to and which are full of hot air, but sometimes the info is still wrong.
I just try to pass along what I believe to be true to help everyone out. This forum has taught me so much and provided so much, I'm very grateful for it being here.
I didn't grab many FB and GE anyway because my gut feeling told me they were going to be around longer than expected. Regardless, they will still do well in the future and that is my opinion and with that said...

I do not mind LEGO shooting themselves in the foot on FB and eventually having to clearance these down to 100-125 IMO.
Walmart and Amazon are already trying to move FB at 119. I just do not see the sense in this from LEGO's standpoint.
The few deals I've made on here are closer to the old days than anything.
Let's keep it that way.
Great group. :-)

Sort of messed up the quoting from a previous post. Sorry.
Can we assume that this set is EOL based on it's post christmas sale price? Or has it been confirmed elsewhere and I just missed it. Did a search in here but found nothing concrete.
On a related note... catching up on all this Ninjago stuff has been timely and costly over the past 2 months. I'll have it all for the little guy just in time for him to start into the next theme. But who am I kidding... I love it.
Of course, I just enjoy Lego and reading about it so I could totally be wrong, but I just feel as if the books will continue to be popular for many, many years to come.
Absolutely love the site. Already got in trouble with the wife by excitedly telling her that the new Mindstorms robot is coming out this August and is only $350. Someone else had mentioned that he referenced the fact that others on here spend thousands of dollars and that he was doing well with staying below that threshold. That didn't work for me either but it probably didn't help to have a half-finished Death Star along with nine other boxed sets in the background when I made my comment. Gotta love it.
Or they may be keeping longer product time frames because this is what people complained about in the last year or two with the sets that had limited releases and ridiculous after market prices. Lego does not care about aftermarket price speculations. As long as sets continue to sell they will produce them by the thousands. It's just that simple.
I not saying anything bad about aftermarket speculation. I myself have bought sets purely for the intent to sell down the road, but sets like this for me are few and far between. I use this technique as a way of making a hobby less expensive. I also believe this bubble will soon burst and it will no longer be an avenue for diluting my hobby costs. I could also be wrong :). If it does burst I will not have to buy and sell anymore so its a win, win for me either way.
Not sure if the bubble will burst or not but in the short time that I have been involved in the hobby it seems as though TLG has changed their tactics on how to discontinue sets.
The sales I heard of from years past simply didn't materialize for me this year.
Also, the addition of the 'retiring' soon tag is a pretty huge indicator that Lego wants those who are looking for any particular set to be aware of when sets will no longer be available.
I do fill a small hole where my third sealed copy of EN was, but the money netted from #3 payed for its #2 brother on the shelf. How many EN passenger cars do I really need around the Christmas Tree once a year.
(50!) haha ;)
It was 'cute' and funny when it was used once.. now in its 296th incarnation it is getting old...Let it go already.
I suppose it's fortunate for TLG, then, that the Palace Cinema is such a great model... and it could definitely be a big boon if this longer shelf life forces all the modulars to be just as well-made moving forward.
Oh, and I think we should drop this *disclaimer* stuff now. The revolution is over, everyone on the village is back to their regular programming. :)
AND WHEN WILL THE LIVE STAR RETssshh!
The development costs are the same whether they sell 100, 10000, or 1000000. The price they charge you for development obviously depends on how many people that is spread over.
What extra would you pay for a different box (contents exactly the same) if it was an exclusive? $10, $100?
