In TRU outlets the sets stayed longer on the shelves due to selling at full price with no discount. Took them a full day to clear the stocks. Though had to add that only selective TRU outlets had it yesterday, other outlets received the stocks today.
Just taken below pic, all the carton boxes in pic are for the 2 CNY sets.
Lucky, both of you, so lucky... As it turns out Lego customer service has been misinforming everyone about these sets for the last month, apparently we're not getting them on [email protected] after all. So now, I have to try to find a retailer that hasn't effectively already presold all the sets they're getting, which from what I was hearing today, might just be mission impossible.
Hate to be in the shoes of two certain Lego bloggers who informed all of us Aussies that Lego had said the set would be available at [email protected], going to have some very angry emails over the next couple of weeks.
Just hoping enough people complain at TLG that they end up putting the sets on [email protected] like what happened with Halloween Witch Brickheadz.
Those interested on the details can continue reading below:
When I arrived at the TRU store, I first saw the carton boxes on pallets, then watched them slowly unpack and stack up beside the shelves, including all other 2019 sets all in cartons neatly stacked up. Had to wait for the lady to do stock taking, other staffs are busy removing older sets from the shelves to make space for the 2019 sets. Heard them taking of limited space, where to place what theme, how to squeeze the sets on shelves etc.
And finally saw one staff open the CNY carton boxes to tag the security stickers. Was debating whether to get 1 or 2 sets of them, in the end decided to only get 1 of each as already had another set on preorder from a different source (with discount).
Supposed to get the free Year of the Pig sets, but they had a delivery problem so have to come back and get it on another day. As other TRU outlets already OOS of the free pig the day before, not sure if they even have any stock left for this outlet, since GWP is only good while stocks lasts with no restock.
Btw, the box size for the 2 sets are much bigger than I expected.
(first time posting an image, so apologies if it's too large)
"Are you going to build these sets?"
"No, I'm sending them to Texas."
"I don't know what that means."
"They won't be here in the morning."
"That's all I needed to hear."
Mumbling... 'where did these come from?'
Can't express how disappointed I was when I realised that it wasn't Robocop!
I posted below pic at our local AFOL group on Monday saying there are still lots of CNY sets around, and by end of the day they're all gone. Apparently many rushed to the store to get it, there's even one person reserving more than 20 sets! And this is without any discount or free Year of the Pig (OOS).
Crazy Rich Asians indeed! :-))
You would not enjoy the exclusive DeCool or STNR WNRS New Year Superhero Ninjacopter.
And why do I want one of these!?!?!?
Those that collect minifigures likely have lots of "sets" but low brick count if they entered them individually.
A more accurate picture can be determined if the parts count figure is shown.
Mine is as below.
