New Years wishes for TLG

My New Year wishes for TLG are:

1) Release Master Builder Academy outside the USA, especially in the UK

2) Make PAB cover every in prodction brick available, or at least the majority. They could surely achieve this by outsourcing it or buying a fully automated picking system.

So would anyone else like to see 1) or 2) or do you have a nomination for 3), 4), 5), etc?

    Would add a hand to No. 1 certainly.

    No. 3 - Please TLG, never re-release discontinued sets.

    No. 4 - TLG to supply Amazon and other UK retailers with 10*** numbered sets.

    ^ I concur with No.3, and wish that extended to CMFs.

    5) Stop overpricing Lego sets in Europe and Australia. This is the age of internet, so those of us who doesn't live in the US know how cheap Lego is there. We also know how to ship overseas, but please - let's agree that UPS and DHL are rich enough as it is.

    I agree with the PAB wish, it should cover all peices in production and older peices untill stock runs out.
  • StuBoyStuBoy Member Posts: 623
    Agree with @Duchessa, and would like to add-on New Zealand to that as well!
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ Member Posts: 4,179
    id definitely agree with 2,3,4 & 5

    6.. please produce a UCS subseries of lotr, with a £2-300 set in 2012

    I second that Duchessa. But I would love to have Japan added as well ;) I mean, who would want to shell out 26,250 yen for a solitary modular set at SRP?
  • DuchessaDuchessa Member Posts: 287
    @StuBoy and @Silber334 - I'll be happy to add both Japan and NZ to my wish list (both to TLG and to my own list of places I'd like to visit).

    I do understand that exchange rates and taxes explains some of the price differences, but just a small part of them. Before the internet age, it probably worked just fine to price a set $50 in the US and $100 in the rest of the world. But today?

    7. Two modular building releases per year, with the second being in the $80 price range. Perhaps a diner, small office, or apartments. Something the size of one of the Pet Shop buildings.

    8. Take advantage of the new molds for the gladius, galea and scutum and release a Roman theme!

    9. Continue to produce licensed sets for SpongeBob, DC, Marvel and LOTR since I have no interest in any of them and would like my wallet to receive some much-needed rest. I'm sure it would make fans of these lines happy too but I don't really give a crap about that; I just want a break. :-P

    I just want Lego out of China forever.

    .. Otherwise I'd wish to have equal US-CAN Lego prices.

    10. Treat your customers equally. Why do VIP members in the US and UK get several Black Friday deals (free shipping, *exclusive* sets,...) while others get none of those? Why do I have to pay €30 for "Ramses Pyramid" while US customers can get it for €3 in the post-Christmas sales? Why is there such a huge price difference on some sets when I compare it to neighboring countries (e.g. set 2521: BE = €99.99 / NL = €89.99 / DE = €79.99 / UK = £61.99 -- i.e. UK customers get to pay *1/3 less* than me! -- see links below for proof)?
  • SupersympaSupersympa Member Posts: 534
    @MrBerre, technically £61,99 is € 25% than belgium, but not much compare to Germany. it is all about currency exchange as well...
  • YellowcastleYellowcastle Administrator, Moderator Posts: 5,234
    I'll side with Si and ask for a UCS LotR set...or in its stead, maybe a UCS Classic Space set!

    I'm with @flump6523 - TLG to supply Amazon and other UK retailers with 10*** numbered sets please.....

    Oh, and making MBA available in the UK would save @rocao lots of hassle !

    Also :

    11. Free shipping from LEGO [email protected] as standard, for purchases over £50 if they really can't do it routinely for all purchases.
  • MrBerreMrBerre Member Posts: 246
    @Supersympa Yeah, but a couple of months ago the exchange rate was much better. (Or maybe I was thinking of the price when the Black Friday 10% discount was applied.) Still, even today the RRP of the set is 25% cheaper in the UK. And that still leaves the fact that I have to pay more than DE or FR customers, and even NL customers. Yet other sets are cheaper for me and more expensive for them, which makes it even stranger.

    @drdavewatford Agree on 11. Amazon UK/DE/FR charge me nothing when I buy > €25 (Amazon FR even > €15!) and their shipments include a tracking number. LEGO charges me money even if I order > €100 and they don't include a tracking number, so I'll have to guess on which day to stay home to receive the delivery.

    I agree with 2 and 3. Never re-release any of the retired modulars! That would be a nightmare!
  • jagdjhjagdjh Member Posts: 95
    How about a nice big intricate Gingerbread house model for next Christmas? Complete with Gingerbread minifigures.
  • LuciusMalfoy7LuciusMalfoy7 Member Posts: 107
    12. Please don't discontinue Harry Potter! Just crank out one or two more Diagon Alley style sets to satisfy fans... like me.
  • Jabba_the_TaffJabba_the_Taff Member Posts: 224
    I'm all for re-releasing retired sets... that I haven't got. But got to agree with letting Amazon sell exclusives.

    13. Don't make sets on the basis of bunging in a load of minifigures.
  • bellybutton290bellybutton290 Member Posts: 453
    SW set originality please. Oh, and a rancor!
  • mnbvcmnbvc Member Posts: 143
    I'd like some flat tiles in the UK PAB, similar to the US. I'd buy cup after cup if they had them!
  • dugmencedugmence Member Posts: 5
    What should say those who live in Serbia, like me? Prices over here are crazy. Ninjago set 2507 costs 223€. If you don't belive me, you can check it out on the following link just pres right arrow on your desktop, and you will see... For your information 1€ = 100rsd
  • MatthewMatthew Administrator Posts: 3,714
    I think I'm with @LuciusMalfoy7's wish, but I'd also like to see #s 1, 2, 4 + 8, plus @Ypres's wish, and #11.
  • wagnerml2wagnerml2 Member Posts: 1,376
    14. Please have something this summer for the City line other than the mining sets, or as I call then Harbor part 2.
  • llanowarsoldierllanowarsoldier Member Posts: 357
    15. Bring back baseplates for sets that AREN'T modulars, as it looks like no sets so far have them. There is no reason that building's shouldn't have them.
