Stock levels this year

CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,204
It looks like Lego has done a pretty good job of maintaining stock levels this year in the run up to Christmas:

Most new SW sets are in stock at [email protected] There are a few with ship dates close to Xmas, and some temporarily out of stock, but there are sets available at all price points.

Dr Who (possibly one of the big ones this year, esp in UK) - in stock, as are all the ideas except Birds.

JW - a few sets, but we know there has been problems keeping these in stock.

Minecraft - again some in stock, but all with pre-Xmas ship dates (although probably too late for the big day).

Marvel and DC - stock levels seem fine.

City - again seems fine, decent availability on the Deep Sea, and even some Arctic from last year. Last year some arctic sets were OOS in the run-up to Xmas.

Ninjago - decent availability.

Dimensions - packs in stock, but no consoles (so not good).

Elves and Friends - all seem available.

So either the predicted best sellers (SW Kylo Ren's ship, Dr Who, Deep Sea ship) have not sold that well, or Lego have upped their game this year and made sure that the popular sets have not had massive outages in stock.

    I was thinking this - was in the Manchester store last week and they still had Dr Who, both christmas sets and most of everything else in stock. The gingerbread house also seemed to last longer than expected.

     The gingerbread house also seemed to last longer than expected. 
    I suspect a lot of people had a similar reaction to the Gingerbread house as me of wanting it when it was first revealed then looking at the £60 and thinking actually it's not worth that much of a spend, had it been at the £50 mark I'd have got the Doctor Who set and a CMF/Mixel, but hitting that £60 mark, I actually couldn't find any combination that I felt was really worth while.

    a couple of the local Supermarkets have been running low on certain stocks, but not noticeably more than normal, and I'm fairly sure last year was far worse.

    ^^^ and whilst LEGO may be out of the Dimensions starter sets they're still widely available elsewhere - apart from the wii u.

    Yes, and supermarkets seem to have decent stocks of other hot sets too (Dr Who, loads of SW). It looks like whatever they have done has worked this year, when compared to difficultly getting some sets in previous years.

    That or sales are down. Which sounds kind of ridiculous but I wonder how much of last years troubles were down to the insane boost from the LEGO movie.

    I know that sets are more expensive in the UK or in EU in general than in NA but I noticed that the Dr Who set is $69,99CAD here and it's priced at £49,99 in the UK which equals to $102CAD. It's quite a difference!

    Less of a difference than the LEGO dimensions team sets - UK RRP £29.99, CAN RRP $24.99CAD.

    Although the Dr Who pricing is largely down to the horrible state of the CAD/Canadian economy at the moment. Take off the 20% VAT and its equivalent to £40 which a year ago would be $72CAD. Dimensions is harder to explain, other than its just LEGO charging as much as they can where they can.

    The ASDA website has sold out of about two thirds of their Lego sets but Tesco still have a much wider selection of sets. ASDA have been discounting on almost all sets for the last month and Tesco have been selling at RRP on almost everything (albeit while running the double points promo).
