    We're completely of topic indeed - but it's a fun topic!

    Keeping it related to LEGO at least: my two boys' (six and nine) "playing voice" is with a Dutch accent. 

    When playing with minifigs they allways use some sort of Dutch accent to let the figs talk to each other. The Ninjago TV series had some test runs with Flemish dubs initially but the series has been Dutch-only for years now. At least the LEGO movies do get a proper Flemish voice-over. I also blame Cartoon Network.

    Screen time is severely restricted for both BTW.

    No better topic than off topic - I noticed my daughter was mispronouncing some words after watching too much Nickelodeon so I did have to adjust that a bit. Kameleòn and Politsie come to mind. But fears or diverging to Dutch, hah, no. :-)

    So, tomorrow 10:00 the Utrecht Store opens.
    Anyone who will attend? My 10:00 appointment has been cancelled (not by me...), so I'll probably be there for a little while.

    I’m coming, together with my 3 year old son. It’s my ‘papa-day’ on Thursdays, so I’m free anyhow!

    Nope, not me.
    In case you go, good luck tomorrow.
    Once the store in Amsterdam is open, I will go and have a look there.
    Let us know if you scored any cool gifts, or what ever else is going on during a store opening.

    Belgian chain Fun celebrates its "birthday" with 20% off on almost their full toy range on Wednesday 23 October. Valid at Fun.be and physical Fun stores.

    You do need Fun's (free) loyalty card, there's a 50 € minimum purchase and the offer is not valid on "Fun Stunt" promo's. However, some of their prices are below RRP, the offer typically does stack with ordinary promo's and Fun does carry larger and rarer sets so some sets can reach a lowest ever with an additional 20% off.

    well, that was hot & crowded, as expected. 
    Nothing much special, aside from this:



     Many staffers from Leicester Square and other branches to help the start. PaBwall pretty small, 10 bins wide. All the action around openingsrebates etc will be in November.

    did manage to drop my PaB-container, though, although not as bad as someone else a little later. Some Nice ppl helped clean up, thanks might you be reading along.

    didn’t see any BSers there, unfortunately.

    did i already say it was really hot in the store? Oh, one good thing, PaB costs the same as in Germany (9,99/17,99), I was expecting the BeNeLuxtax to be applied here. The (UK) storemanager almost sold it to me for the LeicesterSquare price. 😊

    Anything nice in that PAB wall?!? What did you fill your container with?

    Nothing new over the last time I went to Cologne really, aside from the emerald pieces in red (doh) and dark tan 2x2 tiles. 

    Cool halloweenfigs @ BaMbar btw.

    Been there twice, Thursday and Friday. It is a really great shop and the first time for me in a LEGO brand store. I agree with @eMJeeNL that it was really hot there and I complained to the staff about that. The PaB was quite good in my opinion.

    I went again today as well (actually was the first person to do a return in this shop - accidentally bought #40197 for a second time. My wife immediately knew... :D). It was a lot less crowded and therefore less hot. Remarkable amount of AFOL still lurking, myself included. Think about 75% of the people in there were AFOL.

    Would it be a good idea to start a combined BaM/PaB thread for the Dutch/Belgian stores, by the way?
  • HenkdeVriesHenkdeVries NetherlandsMember Posts: 80
    Let's hope for the best. I am counting on A-Tembo to follow through.

    Still no word or sign of my order, a week after they said it would probably ship... 
    Any news on your end @TheBigLegoski?
  • TheBigLegoskiTheBigLegoski Amsterdam, NederlandMember Posts: 1,399
    @HenkdeVries                 
    I emailed them two days ago (Wednesday 10-26), I just saw they sent me a reply this morning, expecting to carry out my order tomorrow. I hope they will!
    May I suggest you email them too and ask about your order status.
    They must have been completely overwhelmed by the amount of orders they got almost a month ago now. I suppose TLG has been sending them truckloads of sets in the meanwhile, so A-Tembo will be able to fulfil and carry out all those orders of eagerly awaiting customers.
    I visited their shop in Delft, and ordered sets from them online several times in the past, and I have only had positive experiences so far. They are very friendly and have good customer service, I am sure if you contact them they will try to help you out.
    Good luck!
  • HenkdeVriesHenkdeVries NetherlandsMember Posts: 80
    Well the mail man just delivered my package! I also only have had very good experiences with them. Also went to their store/museum in Woudenberg some time ago, very nice people. I did not doubt the order would come through. But as you say, completely overwhelmed by the success. Well happy building to me tonight 🤗

    So I visited LEGO World in the Jaarbeurs yesterday with my son. While it was busy we did have a good time. The AFOL area was good to see, many wonderful creations. My son was particularly impressed with the great ball contraption, which was true to its name, big!
    The ToyChamp store was also nicely stocked. Did not get anything myself, as my order from A-Tembo had just come in...

    Afterwards we walked to the LEGO Store in Hoog Catharijne. It was bloody hot in there, as there were lots of people, most of them coming from the Jaarbeurs as well, having the "goodie bag" with them (which was a bit disappointing, but gift horse etc.. ;-))
    We both built our own minifigs, so got some nice parts out of the BAM stand. The PAB wall looked good as well, did not get a good look due to the amount of people there. Also did not get the Utrecht tile, as it will be handed out during the official opening...

    Apart from this, there is lots of news about the opening in Amsterdam:
    https://www.bouwsteentjes.info/locatie-lego-flagship-store-amsterdam-bekend/

    So also a free tile and a free Windmill for VIP's when you buy over 75 Euro...
    Too bad I will not be able to go, as my second child will be born around that time. So if anyone manages to snag up an extra windmill, consider me interested. ;-)

    A-Tembo is awesome!
    Today I received my order I had placed on Friday night 09/20 during the Crazy Lego days. Since their website could not handle all the traffic, and crashed right after midnight, I emailed them to place an order. Those special offers and discounts were too good to let go! They could have easily sent me a follow-up, informing me: "we've run out of stock" or something along those lines cancelling my order, but they delivered. Really happy!

    -20% at dreamland on all toys, so you can get a 100 euro below RRP on the Roller Coaster for example (since its price is already marked down) Also some of the new sets are discounted as well.

    Cora has a couple of dozen sets at odd discounts, up to 40% off, but they actually scan for less than shown. And on top of that they currently have 3 for 2 on all toys, the only catch being that you pay full price and the credit is added to your Cora card (which can be used immediately on another purchase).

    Example:
    #42093 Technic Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, RRP €44.99, shelf price €34.95, scanned €29.95
    #10874 Duplo Steam Train, RRP €64.99, shelf price €48.95, scanned €42.95

    They also have loads of the following two polys, sprinkled about the Lego aisle and a few more around other toys, €3.99 each (included in 3 for 2):
    #30573 Creator Santa
    #30553 Elsa's Winter Throne (Frozen II)

    I’ve received an e-mail from LEGO inviting me to the Amsterdam store opening, and it said 29th of november 12:00 pm. Does that mean 24:00 or 12:00? Cause I thought it would open on saturday 30 november? 
  • stluxstlux LuxembourgMember Posts: 2,272
    The date of Nov 29 was already announced a while back, so yes, it's very much on Friday. 12:00 PM = noon, not a midnight opening.

    I wish that minifig, including that bicycle, would be the store opening gift!
    Though without that helmet.

    German and Belgian tourists, if the things I see around here, coming from the local vacation parc, are anything to go by. ;)

    I'm trying to be there 29/11 - anyone else? Maybe a little BSF-meet?
  • alldarkeralldarker NetherlandsMember Posts: 222
    I’ll be there again like I was in Utrecht, with my son and my sister-in-law. I hated how busy it was in Utrecht, and I hated the fact that the Tree House wasn’t available, but I like the Amsterdam gifts, so I’ll do a rematch...

    Probably NOT going there. The talk (by Lego themselves) of very busy crowd and wristbands with time slots is putting me off. Will explore the store at a later time me thinks.

    Told you so! You cannot have a line blokking access to other stores, and possibly even the entire street with a huge crowd of Lego fans for a store opening. Kalverstraat is just too narrow.
    Time slots is actually a great idea! Just like at busy exhibitions in a museum where time slots are a common phenomenon. As long as you don't have to cue up for a wristband as that will defeat its entire purpose.

    Black Friday offering at Belgian retailer Fun is bit more restrained than last year's 50%-70% discount bonanza.

    You get a voucher for 100% of the purchase price when buying one of the following sets:



    At least their webserver will be happy.

  • snowhitiesnowhitie BelgiumMember Posts: 2,903
    So that's basically 50% off then, if you buy something at full retail in the 5 days that you can reclaim the voucher in december. Confusing :) Guess they are hoping, people will be too busy eating turkey and forget to claim their money back.
  • TheBigLegoskiTheBigLegoski Amsterdam, NederlandMember Posts: 1,399
    Kruidvat has 25% discount on all Lego sets. Regular prices are usually already below RRP.
    Example: Harry Potter Hogwarts Clock Tower #75948 is now €52,49
    This set costs €94,99 at Lego [email protected] / official Lego store. You save €42,50
    Check online for all sets currently available.

    pretty good deals at -you’d never guess- Intertoys. Got myself a copy of #60197 to PowerUp my WV train, for just €81,95! that’s cheaper than buying just the PU parts, so basically a free train/tracks/little stations/MFs!

    Stumbled onto a Carrefour offer this morning - all toys 2+2 free. I went in at about 8.30am this morning and two guys were in the Lego aisle loading up trollies with Lego... MILFs, creator tubs, baseplates, Disney castles...

    I guess if you have one nearby it can't hurt to look.

    And then resell them for retail price or more I assume? Smart move by those guys.

    Did anyone go buy the new modular today in Wijnegem? Were there enough in store to still be available at the moment? Deciding on whether to go today or not...
