But who knows? Maybe it will flounder at RRP forever. I highly doubt it, but anything's possible.
Has anyone else noticed Diagon Alley has been removed from amazon? They had over 1000 of these when I checked I think yesterday. They couldn't have sold 1000 in one night.
Do I think it will be tomorrow? No, might not be for 6 months, but we'll get no warning.
Yes, I did order FB before they removed it and restocked, but I don't think it is "new" stock, they have now pulled it "down" twice in the past week or so, only to put it back up. I shudder to think of how much of that 39R1 stock they have...
The 39R1 came from a Lego Outlet Store.
Will go return/exchange it if that is the case . . .
@gmpirate 39R1 is bad, but my area had no bad FBs so all my stores have them. I think if most stores don't have them right now its because your area had a lot to exchange and hasn't caught up yet. The "good" FBs have been opened to inspect and then resealed with a new batch number
As I mentioned earlier, I purchased mine back in December 2010. It's packed away in a box somewhere and I haven't checked the batch. Surely the 39R1 sets don't go back that far...
Of course I don't really "know", I have a sample size of 1 (or 5, depending on how you look at it)
The qty must be inaccurate, otherwise it makes no sense...
Have you sold any of the FBs yet or are you waiting until they are EOL'd?
Imagine all the extra sets I could have without the tax!!
FWIW, I just sold another today. Jan 1, sold one for $200. Today (Jan. 29) sold one for $270. Bought both for about $140. The profits to be used for my AC MOC. Not bragging - just showing one approach to funding the hobby.
FYI - My job frequently takes me to Victoria, BC, but I haven't had an opportunity to look around for Lego outlets. I would imagine that only Vancouver would have a Lego store in BC just due to its size.
@LegoFanTexas - Does Amazon charge sales taxes in Texas? Which Lego store do you typically shop at in the metroplex? Which Lego store do you like the best in the metroplex? Is the store in Frisco decent? Thanks in advance!
The Frisco store is very nice, needs some better parts on the PAB wall, but they know that. The stock is generally very good and the manager and staff are very nice. I've only ever been to the Dallas store twice, both times to pick something up that was out of stock in the Frisco store, the drive is a bit far for anything else.
At the end of the day though I'd way rather be required to pay zero tax.
I have a small eCommerce business, and I have to charge tax in Indiana - and Amazon doesn't bother me one bit, so there's no reason the huge companies and malls should be complaining. Heck, sometimes I can stuff from Amazon cheaper than I can buy it for at wholesale.
