Too bad cause I'd love a Revan, still hoping it's going to be Europe too...
You mean this set #5002123 Darth Revan from 2014? They are offering that again?!?
Where? How did you find this info?
Thanks, I not yet seen that article.
-- sorry for derailing a bit, but if there are Americans who want to get Revans for people over here let us know (and first plasmodium obviously since he started the thread)
It's difficult to keep lists within posts up to date, given that you can only edit for 6mins, but I'm more than happy to maintain a Google doc or something with an up-to-date list for us.
The only thing that remains to be done is to get people on both sides of the Atlantic on board with this - so far no Americans have offered, which may be because of the [UK] tag in the title. If I (or any of you guys) can think of a good way to phrase it, we can get a mod to change it.
But then again, I'm not sure the UK/EU promo has been officially confirmed, so I don't know how worth it is setting up a massive thing straight away.
(Just to say, I finished KOTOR I for the first time just this summer and am halfway through II, so I'm really happy to see Revan come round again!)
So if I were to sell any Revans, it would have to be for about the current asking price, and I didn't feel comfortable offering that here.
Granted, in both of those cases, it was not a rerelease of a product with an established market price. My original intent in creating this thread was to continue in that same spirit of essentially subsidising someone's [email protected] order in exchange for a freebie they didn't want. My intention is in no way to organise EU Brickset members to take advantage of US members by forcing them to sell below market price, but after others started commenting, I just thought it might be nice to provide a place for these kinds of community deals to take place.
You may be right, though - we may find that no US members are willing to sell below market price, and that they don't feel like twisting someone's arm (or having their arm twisted) for the sake of 'community'.
He's made a list, he's checked it twice, Darth Revan (might be) coming to town.
Basically, I've just put the US people in the left column and the EU people in the right column in the order that they posted.
@Legoboy - I put a question mark by your name because I wasn't sure if it was a serious post or just a joke. :-)
My name has a question mark because someone offered me a deal almost as soon as I posted the thread, but I haven't heard back from them yet, so I'm not sure if that deal's still on.
Here's the flyer that I got in the mail yesterday. The Revan give-away is one day only on 30 September. The fine print says "while supplies last".
I do not see anything that would limit you from making multiple orders and to add to the chaos, Lego is offering free shipping as per this blurb off Lego.com:
Free Shipping offer valid September 12 through 11:59pm EST (8:59pm PST) September 30, 2016. Free Shipping applies to shop.LEGO.com and catalog orders only. Qualifying purchase in merchandise only; any applicable taxes, Bricks & Pieces replacement parts orders or value of gift cards purchased do not apply to merchandise total. Free shipping will automatically be added with a qualifying order. Free shipping is via standard ground service; upgrades do not apply. If you choose another shipping option, additional charges will apply. Standard order processing and delivery time is 3-8 days from the date of order. Free shipping valid only in the contiguous United States. Not valid at LEGO® Stores, LEGOLAND® Parks or Discovery Centers. LEGO® Group reserves the right to cancel or modify this promotion at any time without advance notice.
This to me says that the system will crash at 12:01 as everybody attempts to order one Star Wars keychain multiple times.
Hasn't Lego learned anything?
Having said which, it might be worth getting in contact with the person who you got matched up with to sort out details sooner rather than later - ie, are they proxying an entire order, or are you just buying the Revan off them, for what price, etc.
Price is entirely up to the seller - I'm not going to presume to set a guide price or anything. You can see my discussion with @SprinkleOtter above for more details, but this is not an organised deal with strict rules, just a place for Brickset members to help each other out with obtaining regional exclusives.
Not that I particularly care about this figure, I just like free LEGO shit. :D
I have an extra sealed one from 2014.
pm me if you are still interested, not out to make money, so market prices don't interest me.
What else you have extra of? :-)
That is the list of people who wanted one, so it might be worth checking who did and didn't get one in the end?
