Was playing the risky wait till double points in October game to pick it up only to see the 10% black friday weekend offer appear. Decided to wait again for that, even mentioning to wife that I plan to pick it up from a store this weekend getting a discount using both the vip points and promo discount.
Oh well, guess I'll call a few up tomorrow morning and see if any in stock otherwise I'll have to settle with less of a discount.
Considering S&H has now sold out in Europe, these numbers may start falling fairly quickly.
Plus, it also went when Amazon was the only game left in town really, I think everyone else had sold out first. Now, the others still have stock.
FB has been out so long, I think we're all a bit sick of it by now. Well, those of us with a stack of them sitting around for 2+ years anyway...
Frankly, I am not convinced it will rise above $200 by next Christmas, I give it a 50/50 chance.
Someone buy the last two and be done with it! :)
Thinking about it, at that volume, I would expect they'll want to discount them after Christmas - won't want to sit on that stock for another year.
If anyone sees it go from [email protected], be sure to let us all know. :)
My guess again is that TRU will be the last ones standing with FBs in stock (even though they are not higher priced).
Buying from LEGO is a good idea right now anyway if you want one. You get the Holiday set #2 and also the 10 dollar gift card
212 Showing @ JL = confused
The price is very tempting to be honest, it's almost 30% off compared to the European 150 EUR retail price.
Have to say that both FB & WVC do look well priced given EOL?
Sales this year had been running 20% below 2012... however the past 2 days has seen a spike and now I'm actually running ahead of 2012 slightly...
Perhaps it is the weather (poor weather in parts of the US might have kept people home). Perhaps people are sick of the mall and more are doing online shopping...
Perhaps it is just the compressed holiday season and more sales are being pushed into Thursday/Friday for Thanksgiving...
But overall, my mood has gone from bummed to generally happy. Margins are still down, but at least gross sales numbers have recovered. Now just waiting to see what December brings! :)
Anyone else see a surge in the past 2 days? Anyone have great or terrible sales to report?
Can't compare with last year though as my stock is much more relevant than it was.
Most people here still don't trust online traders around here, regardless of feedback and rep. Most still prefer to pay 2x in stores. But this is slowly starting to change.
Have four FB and debating getting another GE or two. Only have two.
Agreed. Great parts to have even if the set value doesn't climb like past modulars.
