    Is there a difference between store VIP and on-line?
    For redeeming vouchers, I think so, otherwise, no.

    Thanks, I haven’t tried to figure out vouchers yet.  It’s been a difficult couple of years with my Mom’s progressive Parkinson’s and a fall shattering her pelvis.  I have only been able to have some lego time recently.  I had been wondering why people got vouchers that expire when you just tell them at the store what you want to use.

    OK, so I may have a big problem. Had a problem ordering the AT-AT, the first order I tried came up with an error message. So I tried again, and that order went through OK. Now I'm showing both orders in process. Hopefully I can cancel one before they fill it, or cancel both of them.

    No, other than that one will only work in-store, and the other will only work online.  I assume he redeemed an in-store certificate when he meant to redeem an online one.  Sucks, and I don't know if we've heard why they even split them up like that, but I think CS has been pretty understanding about it when people have mixups.  Not sure if they can do anything to credit it back on the purchase, but definitely worth a try! And at the very least I know they have refunded the VIP points to multiple people who got the wrong ones.

    ^Unfortunately they don't open till 7am, but that's the first thing I do in the morning.

    So a follow-up both AT-AT orders are showing in the warehouse, and they can't cancel one. I have to wait until they show up, and then return it. Hopefully it ships, and gets here fast.

    My copy of 4402-1, Sea Riders, is together again this morning for the first time in more than 15 years! 

    I got 4402 when it was new, then rebuilt it into a pair of simple spaceships, bought another copy when it was slightly used, rebuilt both into a moonbase, then the pieces went into the general build bricks for several years. After rebuilding 4993 (Cool Convertible) last year after it had also been scrapped, I had hopes of rebuilding 4402 this summer, and even bought the parts that had gone missing. But life's busyness got in the way from summer until now.  Yesterday I got time to build during a Thanksgiving where other plans were cancelled, and I finished the build this morning. It still looks great, I'm glad to have it, and it's always fun to "rescue" a set from the parts heap.

    Interested in #41938 DOTS Creative Designer Box for the 1x1 round tiles white with black letters, but don't want to buy a whole set just for them.

    I got them from B&P.

    Sounds like the right choice for you. If you're not going to enjoy building it, then it's a waste of money. Spend that on something you'll enjoy more.

    My first LEGO status of today is for @Lo1sJess, actually. She wanted to see my Nativity for minifigs, so here it is. By the door. They made this set very cramped. Just a small mod, but it reflects me, and my family much better. I don't put much stock in a flying chubby fellow hauled by deer, frankly.

    Yeah I may have enjoyed it, but the Falcon build was not something I cared to repeat. I have no idea if it would have been like that, but the MF certainly was in the back of my mind as I was considering it. Don’t get me wrong, it looks cool as hell and I was super tempted. Glad I held off though

    Well black friday was a bit of a bust, sales where lack luster and pre black friday with double VIP seemed better truthfully. Still went to lego store as we were passing through the city any ways. Had to get something and they didnt make it easy, no home alone, no disney castle, no diagon alley.. Needed clone force 99 though and pick a brick and build a fig where pretty good today. 

    We move in 9 days now, lego packed! Anxious but excited as I have been without a lego room for 6 months and in 10 days I will have a new lego room a little bigger then the last one!  Can't wait to get building again..

    I assembled the Yoda species dream team today in a tidying session of various models! Still love the 2002 OG Yoda.



    Just need to make a UCS Yaddle and I’m sorted!
    Is the plural Yodas, or Yodi?(Yodai?)

    I did search all sets with a pink 2x2 plate on rebrickable before replying. And a little voice in the back of my head said 'hey, I just saw somebody post about bricklinking this set' which I had even liked.
    I'll just go sit in a corner for a while. Must be the jet lag after returning from the US.

    A leak in our ceiling means I need to take all my Lego out of my office so they can get in to lift floorboards. At least it is a chance to put away some of the parts that I have kicking around from sets I took apart.

    I used my VIP points for two discounted $5 vouchers. Just need $605 more dollars for January first! (for all of the next wave of Monkie Kid sets 😀)
    Sure would be nice to win the 1,000,000 points sweepstakes!

    I just watched Home Alone again and I couldn't wait for mid December to buy the set. Bought it at 2am because why wait until a normal hour? Plus I added Santas Visit as it was available for back order.

    Without the TLG purchasing limits:

    With 1,000,000 VIP points you could buy eight AT-AT,
    to get 44800 more VIP points, enough points to buy a ninth AT-AT,
    then really attack your Hoth Rebel Base. :)

    Leaving you with 36800 VIP points so you could get £230 of other lego.
    Almost 3 x Santa's Visit, to add to your Hoth display.....

    No, you would need that remaining 36,800 points to help defray the cost of your hernia surgery (from trying to carry 9 AT-ATs)…

    Surely the remaining points would be better spent on #75320 Snowtrooper Battle Packs to fill the imperial forces in the AT-ATs?!

    Yeah, I would do just 7 AT-ATs and use the rest for an AT-ST or two, plus lots of the battle packs and rumored "accessory pack" with Hoth rebels.

    Can anyone confirm whether or not the "E-Cert No." on a LEGO shipping box label is a unique code, or a batch code?

    I've looked it up on the lego.com/compliance site and it shows as a valid E-Cert No., but not exactly sure what it's verifying. 

    I only ask as I'm buying a sealed AT-AT for a friend in the shipping box. I have a picture of the label, but am doing what I can to verify the authenticity.

    Hmm... interesting question. I assume you're talking about this page?

    https://www.lego.com/en-us/legal/notices-and-policies/compliance/

    The output is a PDF (click the download arrow next to the relevant country/language) with the certification showing which laws the product complies with. It is not unique to a single set or even production run, as far as I can tell.

    It should allow you to verify that the product is really an AT-AT though, I think.

    Its December 1st tomorrow and I have a dilemma. Miss Speedy has a Friends advent calendar awaiting her for the morning. I have the Star Wars and the Marvel one......but we only have space to put two of them out downstairs! Friends and which one?

    ^ I have a similar problem, although in my case, my husband does not know that I bought myself two advent calendars this year, so I can only put one out.  HP or Marvel?  I mean, I know he's going to find out anyway, but I'd like to at least wait until I've finished his (his will be a few days late due to poor shipping timing on my part!)

    Sitting here today trying to decide if a Lego set is worth $800 and remembering how miserable I was putting together #75192. Lego FOMO is a helluva thing 
    Heck I thought it was a little tedious to put together Brick Bank at 1000+ pieces and right now I'm putting off the similar scale Tantive IV so the several thousand piece sets never entered consideration.

    The $100+ Saturn V is the othee large model I've done but matching sections mainly quarters of the rocket cylinder expedited the process
