    For the last year or two Target  has been very unreliable for cmf's so I just buy a case from Ebay and call it good and the price is better anyway.

    My local Target has been months behind on CMFs.  I think the S2 Simpsons CMFs were the last ones that were put ouy near their actual release date.

    Yay!
    Wow that's insanely .. unacceptable!! Why not give them a call and ask them for the specific package color or something
    They get them in these 100 count cardboard sleeves without any indication as to which series is contained therein.  And, for some reason, the toy department is run by the electronics people, so nobody knows where anything is.

    Usually I call and give details, but the last few times I tried they just told me they're at the checkout lines. The old series. So yeah they're really unhelpful at times lol.

    Maybe if you go instore, find someone, show them a picture of what it is, they'll find it better. That's how I got the Disney CMFs in March 2016

    ^ Ahh, there's the production box for my set :D Luckily only 1 pcs/pzs, though I wonder if a "best before" date is in order...

    Sounds to me like she practices white magic (especially given the dominant color of said sushi chef) so I'd let the witchcraft ride!

    Found ten Ninjago Movie sets on the shelves at the Southtown Target yesterday.

    My local Auchan supermarket had all TLNM sets on the shelves yesterday. They are usually a couple of weeks behind with putting out new sets, so very happy. Gave me an opportunity to drool over Destiny's Bounty :)

    Which CMF figures are being having a hard time finding?

    I bought 25 random packs from a picked through box (found 10 dupes) and the Garmadons were no where to be found.

    The temple of the ultimate Weapon is $80 at Walmart......I was wondering if it would really be that price, but I just ordered mine and sure enough it is.

  • CM4SCM4S United StatesMember Posts: 1,363
    Did anyone else get double VIP points when checking out? I ordered about 296 worth of stuff and it said "you will recieve 592 points when this order is complete"

    Stopped by Target for some non-LEGO during lunch break and gazed at Destiny's Bounty for what seemed like an hour. Beautiful set and will definitely be getting it, but...

    ...I foresee substantial discounts. Very, very rare for a $159.99 set to be in Target/Walmart. In my area, sets $99.99 and up tend to sit on shelves. Even the $79.99 sets don't move that quick. Hard to get a casual buyer to happen across a $160 set and decide to walk out with it. With Walmart having to move some $119.99 sets for as low as $40 during the most recent clearance AND the fact that TLBM movie sets seem to have been overstocked (which could happen with TLNM sets as well), I could see being able to save a great amount on this set in the future.

    And this doesn't just apply to LEGO. I see plenty of $99.99 toys at Target/Walmart heavily discounted because they just don't move. I'll be a happy man if I never see a Hot Wheels Ultimate Garage on the shelves again!

    There will absolutely be many discounts on the Ninjago movie line, if you can exercise some patience I imagine you'll see at a minimum the standard 20% discounts across the line within a couple of months

    Did yours ship yet? Mine shipped and I'm not seeing a difference in my VIP count.

    Saw #70611 at Wal-mart today for $24.96.  Lot of small parts, but it is crazy seeing these sets priced at $0.05/piece right off the bat.

    Not sure if it's appropriate to post in this thread, but there is a much better version of the Lloyd dragon done by a clone brand.

    Probably can use Lego to build it if can get hold of the instructions, it's about 92cm long using 1443 pcs.

    Better in design, colour wise I'm sure you can choose whatever colour you want when building it with Lego bricks :)

    I managed to complete my Ninjago CMFs last night after a couple of mistakes the previous day. Toymaster actually worked out good value for once, with the "Buy 5, get the 6th free" offer. Managed to get a spare N-Pop girl too :-)

    That's why I said build with Lego, and it'd be perfect! 

    The design is nice, credit is given where credit is due. Or maybe I just don't understand the diehard Lego fanboy's mindset. :)

    It seems like the Saturn V is being defiled.

    That big Lloyd's dragon is sorta cool as a display piece, but it doesn't look very playable and seems like it might struggle to hold a lot of poses due to its sheer size.
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,487
    I actually like this color better. looks more organic. yeah, I know it's supposed to be a robot.
  • sid3windrsid3windr BelgiumMember Posts: 1,452
    It reminds me of the green creator dinosaurs. I like it too!
  • Penkid11Penkid11 Member Posts: 788
    My issue, if we're talking about a bigger version of Lloyd's Dragon, is that I hate that we can't make a to-scale version of the dragon without a larger mold for the snout and jaw.

    I just, really, really want to MOC movie accurate versions.

    Spoiler alert!

    Someone posted this on the net.

    I'm sure someone will build a life size one using a similar style to the Lowell Sphere and the #21301 - Birds set.

    I really feel most of these sets are a good value....I bought the Ninjago City Chase yesterday and with 5 minifigures and a really decent build for $20 it was well worth it. The best deal has got to be the temple for $80 at Wal Mart though. It comes with 8 minifigures (if you count the statue), all of the main characters except Master Wu, and with that price tag it is just under 6 cents a piece. They certainly put their designers to work on the movie themed sets.

    Yea, this wave has probably one of the best price - part ratio and really good, detailed sets which even get non-ninjago fans into buying them. I've bought everything except for the temple, Master falls and Garmadon mech on 20% discount already so even better prices. 
  • dannyrwwdannyrww WisconsinMember Posts: 1,391
    So here is an oddity....putting together the Temple set and when i got to bag 4 I got two hair pieces for Cole. Is anyone else seeing this or is it a fluke? I'm use to seeing extra pieces, but that is an odd one.

  • gmonkey76gmonkey76 ChicagoMember Posts: 1,593
    ^ Jangbricks mentioned he got an extra hair piece in his YouTube video. Could be a batch of the sets are like that, or it could be something with that hair piece.

    Saw Target yesterday had almost all the Ninjago sets out. But I feel silly for buying the sets when I see them on sale at Amazon a few months later. So will hold on for now lol.

    Oh most definitely.  The plan is for it to go across the street where the GBHQ is right now.

    I was thinking you might try to connect them using the water. That's what I have planned. My head is always full of great plans... at this rate, some will see the light of day when I retire.

    For now, I keep buying the sets ;)

    Maybe, we'll see how it goes.  The challenge is that I have limited space and all my corner slots are in front, away from my envisioned "Asian" area.  Plus Ninjago City is so massive it will probably block sight of everything else behind it.

    I was able to plan my placement of the Ultimate Temple quite well by counting its studs in the pre-release pics, but with Ninjago City it seems hard to know how it will work out until you have it in front of you.  Too many oddly shaped protuberances.

    As sort of a pseudo-modular, I certainly look forward to seeing how people integrate it into their layouts.

    Walmart has the Water Strider 70611 for $24.86. A good price since Target's shelf price seems to be $39.99 but if you order online for pick up it's $29.99

    @Roobot does the other side of the bridge go into the airjitzu temple? Really nice setup, like that you made a street musician out of the rocker!

    @Roobot Argh, now you have made me add #70608 Master Falls, #70607 City Chase and #70617 Temple of the Ultimate Ultimate to my want list!

    I originally thought I'd only get Ninjago City, Destiny's Bounty and Green Ninja Mech Dragon. (I like dragons!) Then I saw the Garma and Fire Mech displayed at my "local" Lego store this weekend, and on the want list they went...

    After added these latest 3, I went from getting only a couple of TLNM sets, to wanting to get the majority of them... Yay?

    And great layout @Roobot. I might shamelessly copy some of that :)

    City Chase is a really nice one, might get two or so to decorate the street around Ninjago City. Still the only 2 I really want from TLNM wave 1. Fingers crossed. I also love the garden idea!
  • lentillentil WisconsinMember Posts: 53
    That looks super awesome @Roobot ! i love how you put a wall around the garden, and incorporated Airjitzu and the Ultimate Temple together... I may also be shamelessly copying some of those ideas...
