But I still want to know which Jay minifigure the kid got- all Jays in one? Eh?
Also, boo on the author just using the current Amazon price, not what they kid likely paid when this was written.
I too am puzzled by the gestalt Jay on offer here. And the conversation was cute.
Same with the Emerald Night aspergers boy.
I lost my Mr Gold, please send a new one in unopened packaging please. He might get lonely in that parcel all by himself, he may need a gold C3PO to keep him company....
With a white rangefinder...
I aim to please.
1. I look like the kind of forum member that thinks "Ooh! There's a Lego reference in mainstream media! I MUST share it with my Brickset friends!" Which can be a bit twee and more than a little embarrassing.
2. I'll not share anything again, which may prevent some genuine new good stuff from being widely recognised.
Humph! Well, I'm a grown man. I'll cope.
The clickbait website media is far worse.
Stale kittens are a bit more like:
All in all, I'm sure The LEGO Group doesn't mind getting another round of praise for something they did in 2012, particularly since it still ties in with one of their current brands and thus won't be as likely to be accompanied with undertones that "LEGO was so much better back in the day". I will say that from my experience, LEGO Customer Service still responds to e–mails with a very personal tone. Just a couple weeks ago I contacted them about some errors on the LEGO Ninjago website (incorrect text for some pages of their Museum section) and got a very personal response. Sure enough, the errors were fixed within a week.
When it comes to lost products, this story is a testament to how LEGO does their best to make things right, although not a lot of the places I've seen this shared acknowledge that the Jay minifigure they sent out was different than the one that was lost. This shows that even four years ago, LEGO Customer Service couldn't replace things with 100% certainty and perhaps had to make do with what they had on hand. Even so, it was quite kind of them — if a bit crafty — to present their replacement as something special. If one of us AFOLs requested a replacement and didn't get the specific thing we needed replaced, I'm sure it wouldn't give us the same warm feelies, but the LEGO Group takes pride in making kids happy even when their hands are tied.
On a related note — I should really get in contact with LEGO Customer Service soon about my Cole minifigure in #70589 coming with the wrong hood.
Guess one of my Mariachis will forever be missing his guitar.
