Betting on the set for the mystery discounted set on 14-16th December

arathemisarathemis sometimes here, sometimes thereMember Posts: 353
So [email protected] has a mystery set that will be at 20% off between 14th-16th December. Anyone want to take any bets on what this set might be?

I`ll go first and say it is the Assembly Square.

    ^^ I wanted to say that too, but I guess it`s a little far fetched for that to happen. They will be out of stock in minutes.

    #75098 (Insult on Hoth)

    It's listed as 'retiring soon' but wasn't included in the Brick Friday deals in the UK.  I can't imagine that it's been flying off the shelves, so they might be looking to offload it.

    ^ That set is/was already on sale for $175.00 (down from 250.00) at my local Lego store yesterday.

    It'll probably be a bulk bucket or the cargo train set.
  • stefxanstefxan AustriaMember Posts: 49
    I fear it is the Disney Castle. Would love to see any other set but there are just a few that had not be discounted in the last month.

    How about Ninjago City?

    Hoping for the UCS Snowspeeder as I didn't have the spare cash to pick it up recently when Smyths had it discounted.  More likely to be something a little more generic, like a large creator set/modular or Winter themed; winter train maybe?

    Do we know there definitely is going to be a set discounted? The newsletter just says there will be a surprise offer on those dates, I was assuming that meant a gift with purchase.

    I also say (and hope :D) it's Assembly Square!

    Star Wars is released that weekend, so the obvious choice to me is something related to Star Wars.

    Gotta be Insult on Hoth. I was surprised it wasn't discounted over Black Friday. Still a very tough sell if it's only 20% off. I mainly want it for the two droids.

    Wasn't paying much attention to the date.  Maybe Star Wars is the obvious choice after all.  Still hope for it being the snowspeeder....

    Is this a UK thing? Can't remember seeing this in The US. 
  • oldtodd33oldtodd33 Denver 4800 miles to BillundMember Posts: 2,356
    Maybe a UK thing because Assault on Hoth was discounted on Black Friday in the US at Lego and Amazon I think.

    These are not the droids you're looking for. (sorry, couldn't resist)

    Would love Assembly Square

    The email I just got said 2x VIP immediately after this, followed by a Star Wars discount so I reckon that rules out this being a Star Wars set.  It's described as "Super Surprise Offer" so maybe a Super Heroes Set(s)?

    I'd have said Classic Batcave if it hadn't already retired.  Too early for Joker Manor surely?  There are a few retiring TLBM sets, maybe they'll just clear those out.  Or as a previous poster said, a GWP

    Edit: Just noticed it does in fact say it's a set (not plural) so ignore most of what I just said!

    If I guess enough times I'll be right eventually ;)

    Assembly Square, Ninjago City or Disney Castle :)
  • Th1nDieselTh1nDiesel UKMember Posts: 455
    I would love it to be Ninjago City since I'm going to buy it this month anyway. The dilemma would be whether to buy it straight away on the 14th or hold out for double points on 15th (as per my original plan) and hope it doesn't sell out.

    ^why would you wait out for double points? Double points gives you 10% off in points.
    I`m expecting that big surprise to be at least 20% off, if not more.

    If it`s super super heroes, could it be the Hellicarier?
  • Th1nDieselTh1nDiesel UKMember Posts: 455
    ^ Because double points runs from 15th to 17th, do there'd be some overlap meaning discount and double points.
  • Th1nDieselTh1nDiesel UKMember Posts: 455
    ^^ It won't be the Helicarrier (in the UK at least), as it is listed as Retired.
  • arathemisarathemis sometimes here, sometimes thereMember Posts: 353
    ^^surprise set is from 12th to 14th. Double points is 15-17th. I don`t see any overlap.
    At least in Germany.

    You've got the dates wrong in the title and in the OP above. Oops! 
  • Th1nDieselTh1nDiesel UKMember Posts: 455
    Ah, I see; I was going by the title of this thread. In that case, I'll jump at the chance to buy at 20% discount. 
  • arathemisarathemis sometimes here, sometimes thereMember Posts: 353
    ^^oups...my bad.
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,197
    some sets retiring soon : 
    -assault on Hoth
    -kwik-e-mart
    -the village
    -temple of aijitzu
    -tie fighter
    -palace cinema
    -ferrari F40

    I think assault on hoth was discounted on black friday.
    the village doesn't seem very popular and is often considered overpriced, so I expect it will be discounted.
    I would expect the kwik-e-mart too.
    not sure about the 3rd, maybe palace cinema?
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,197
    lol, TLBM batcave? so lame
  • adukaduk Member Posts: 153
    TLBM Batcave - yawn
  • Lego_StarLego_Star ... in a galaxy far, far away.Member Posts: 1,853
    It was bound to be a "super" hero set. Isn't it a different one for each of the 3 days?
  • stluxstlux LuxembourgMember Posts: 2,099
    @Lego_Star Yes: "One specific LEGO set will be discounted each day from 12th to 14th November 2017 at shop.LEGO.com and in LEGO Stores only."

    2 more chances to be disappointed!

    well it certainly was a disappointment. Wonder what the next 2 items will be.
  • ateagueateague EnglandMember Posts: 171
    That is a disappointment. Hoping for Assembly Square but not holding my breath

    Dissapointment #2 has been revealed.
    And when I think that I just bought this set on Sunday for 60% off. Hilarious...
  • BumblepantsBumblepants Sofia BG/Dallas TXMember Posts: 5,463
    Don't worry everyone, tomorrow it will be Every Great And Giant Set on sale as a bonus surprise.
  • mr_bennmr_benn United KingdomMember Posts: 828
    Tomorrow it will be... something that I know is discounted more on Amazon UK already.  It will be disappointment #3!
  • ateagueateague EnglandMember Posts: 171
    Disappointing show so far
  • Gooker1Gooker1 Member Posts: 568
    what has been discounted so far?
  • arathemisarathemis sometimes here, sometimes thereMember Posts: 353
    Ninjago movie temple and Batcave break-in sets.
  • HuwHuw Brickset Towers, Hampshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 6,333
    @mr_benn, you are spot on, it's discounted more at Amazon and pretty much every shop that sells it.

    I can reveal at midnight :)

    yep the porsche. I have to admit it's the best deal, even though it is 200€ everywhere else
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 9,169
    I'm guessing this is in Europe/UK only?
