Wanted: 30140 Alien Conquest Walker

Hi,

I'm looking for two or three Alien Conquest Walkers. I have the rest of the theme and want to close it out.

I have some of the recent polybags... Ninjago Glider, Atlantis Diver, Toy Story soldiers, City helicopter. I also have an extra Atlantis Deep Sea Diver and Ramses Pyramid game (with large tan plate). I will add set numbers when I get home tonight.

Will consider adding cash to deal or even buying outright if price is reasonable. Prefer U.S. trader but will consider other.

Thanks!

    If i find em im buying the whole box! Then trading nicely... seems to be a tough find

    Loads of people are after this, the only confirmed availability was 10,000 given away by the Sun Newspaper as a Facebook competition. However, I don't know anyone that won one (anyone??) and there aren't any for sale on Bricklink, ebay or Amazon. I don't rate your chances of getting hold of this poly at this time and think we will need to be patient as it may not become available until next year now.

    Oh ok. Thanks for the info. I guess I'd settle for one. :-)

    I entered the competition, and I also sent away for poly's I couldn't pick up instore.
    So far I've heard nothing. :(
  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 2,670
    I can't believe 10,000 vanished in thin air, without any active AFOL getting one... surely?
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    I'm guessing this one re-surfaces when new AC sets appear next year.
  • MatthewMatthew Cheshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 3,734
    @JessyDooDah I phoned the Sun to ask about why I hadn't had the sets I posted coupons for, and the girl said that they probably wouldn't get sent out until right near the end of the 28 days (which is working days). Even so, they still should have sent out emails to tell we've won a walker....
  • JessyDooDahJessyDooDah UK Member Posts: 228
    I have just emailed The Sun customer services dept asking if/when we are likely to hear back about the competition and poly's we sent away for.
    I'll let you know if I hear anything :)
  • JessyDooDahJessyDooDah UK Member Posts: 228
    Thanks @Matthew! We are all still in with a chance then! :D
  • jwsmartjwsmart Member Posts: 298
    @sidersdd - do you know something we don't regarding AC coming back in 2012? The last speculation I heard was that it was a one-and-done, but I would be thrilled if that was wrong.
  • jwsmartjwsmart Member Posts: 298
    Also, I just checked, and there are none for sale on Bricklink - nor have any ever sold - there isn't even an inventory listing. So it looks like they haven't really hit the streets in any quantity yet...
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    @jwsmart - I don't, but Ma1234 was speaking pretty confidently in this thread:
    http://www.bricksetforum.com/discussion/comment/25706#Comment_25706
    and claims to have seen a catalog or set list for summer next year, which included Kingdoms and AC.
  • jwsmartjwsmart Member Posts: 298
    ^ Wonderful news! I was hoping it wasn't discontinued.
  • johnsbricksjohnsbricks Member Posts: 210
    Do you think the sun didn't actually have the set prior to setting up the comp and now trying to keep things quiet on the comp winning front?
  • Bosstone100Bosstone100 USAMember Posts: 1,379
    I thought AC was going to be discontinued or is that just a rumor? I really like AC so I hope not. I was going to buy some extra sets for parts to expand on the theme. Not sure if I should now.
  • whizzardwhizzard Member Posts: 102
    Just got an email from the sun saying have won one of these so get checking your inboxes!
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,272
    Me too! Pretty chuffed with that.
  • rudekidrudekid Member Posts: 22
    Me just got the email:)
  • princedravenprincedraven Essex, UKMember Posts: 3,768
    ^ + ^^ + ^^^ Congrat's - Nothing for me yet.
    Hope I haven't had to put up with the Sun's rubbish on FB for nothing :)
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,272
    ^ yeah, how do I stop that, hope nobody else sees that I 'liked' The Sun!
  • lilaclinnylilaclinny Member Posts: 1
    I juat got an email saying I have won one :-) !!! You have to follow a link fill out a quick postal form and they say you will recieve it in 28 days :-)
  • LukeSkywalkerLukeSkywalker IrelandMember Posts: 231
    Yay, I won one too! :D
  • johnsbricksjohnsbricks Member Posts: 210
    Looks like I won too....Just being a little cautious but can we be sure that this isn't a fake 'get your details' type site who then spam you? Has anyone heard of aspen house marketing - are they are genuine company?

    Dont' forget to check your junk mail. mine was hiding there! :D
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    Congrats to all the winners. You're all winning only 1 walker though right? So unlikely anyone is in shape for a trade?
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,272
    Yep, you only win one. I certainly wouldn't want to trade mine as I'm a big polybag collector. Don't worry though, I'm sure this little fella will turn up in abundance somewhere within the next 6 months.
  • kylejohnson11kylejohnson11 Member Posts: 508
    My guess is it will be at Target for either Valentines Day or Easter.
  • brickscapebrickscape Member Posts: 18
    Yeah, I was really hoping to see either of the AC polybags at Target for either Halloween or Christmas, but no luck. I've got one jetpack but wouldn't mind some more and I definitely want one of those walkers.
  • pantboypantboy EnglandMember Posts: 210
    Yay, i have also won one, first thing i have won in absolutely ages, just in time for it to get lost in the Christmas post.
  • SupersympaSupersympa SwedenMember Posts: 534
    got no facebook, do not like the sun...Had no chance to win ;)

    But if anybody got a spare one...well, I would be happy to get one ;)
  • MatthewMatthew Cheshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 3,734
    ^ If mine turn up from the Sun, I should have a spare.
  • ThisIsMyCupThisIsMyCup Member Posts: 156
    i wanna trade for a walker if anyone is willing. its the last thing im missing from alien conquest.
  • Bosstone100Bosstone100 USAMember Posts: 1,379
    Wow! People pulling the rug right out from under me. Where's the love? Still looking for one of the walkers.
  • Bosstone100Bosstone100 USAMember Posts: 1,379
    Just a bump. I'm still looking for a couple of these but will certainly settle for one to finish out my Alien Conquest collection. I have Target gift card sets for trade. If you are outside the U.S., maybe I can pick up something that you can't get where you are. Let me know if we can work something out.
  • bricksanbricksan Member Posts: 566
    @Bosstone100 I have one still in it's bag and one out of it's bag, I'm from the UK and will happy trade them with you.
  • bluemoosebluemoose Member Posts: 1,716
    I ended up buying one of the AC walkers off ebay.uk for an extortionate amount ...
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    I'm interested in a trade as well - after @Bosstone100 gets fulfilled.
  • MatthewMatthew Cheshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 3,734
    I didn't get one, even when I won! Does anyone have a spare they'd be willing to trade/sell?
  • jocappyjocappy Member Posts: 207
    Where these not released in the US?
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    ^ Not yet anyway. There's still some hope that if there truly is a wave 2 of AC that they'll have these polys available this side of the big pond.
  • Bosstone100Bosstone100 USAMember Posts: 1,379
    @RJH - I'll PM you.
  • MaisySMMaisySM Member Posts: 2
    I've been looking for the ADU Walker to fill out my AC collection too.

    Plus I hope there's AC 2012 ... Brickipedia has it on their "discontinued" list for 2012 again ... it's at least the 3rd time we've seen it on the list since late 2011, and it never hangs out long, disappearing for days or weeks until some"one or thing" posts it under discontinued again. FWIW there is hope until absolute word of AC discontinuation from the horse.
  • MaisySMMaisySM Member Posts: 2
    I check the polybags in Target's checkout aisles every chance I get, which means if I'm there, I check them, every aisle. Never any AC, but I keep checking.
  • Bosstone100Bosstone100 USAMember Posts: 1,379
    I'll be picking up some duplicate AC sets. I think I like AC enough to create my own stuff. especially the ADU stuff. The UFO Abduction and Mothership are a bit hokey and I'm not sure I'd be able to mod anthing there with all of those odd shaped pieces. I also need to build up my armies for both sides. I'd buy the battle packs but it bugs me that there is a civilian in there. If they discount them, I'll pick up several.
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    Trying again - anyone have an ADU Walker they are willing to trade/sell?
