As per my earlier post, the one about a TRU employee misleading me about them having series 6 in stock, they had series 5 listed at $2.99, I was really hoping to find series 6 cause initially I thought I'd buy just 2 or 3 (not wanting to pay an inflated price) but when I saw could have them at retail I was gonna buy the whole series but no luck. Any day now though. I think SD TRU gets shipments on Tuesday/Thursday so maybe I call in the morning and see whats up. I think the TRU on Morena Blvd would sell us a box.
I asked if I could buy a full box but they said they usually don't allow that for the first couple months, so I painstakingly sat there and felt through all the bags to find my set only to go checkout and realize I had miscounted and had to do it all over again.
Ultimately they let me leave with 17, I grabbed an extra roman. (well we'll see in a second cause I've yet to open all the bags...)
Vacation for a week in Norcal after that went to see my folks who live in Orange County, so Ontario was just a 20 min drive from their house, and was actually supposed to be back in San Diego a few days ago but came down with a serious stomach flu so I got delayed. I'll be headed back to SD today for sure this time! Then its all SD Lego store.
Sorry I couldn't split that box with you... I get really impatient when CMF come around...
@starfire2 they were thrown into a bin, and yea from the other stores I called they all said they'd have them Monday, or the 9th, which I think is the actual release date.
@jocappy I've seen the ratio around, I'm sure eurobricks has them. I don't remember all but I remember the Roman was 3 per box, and Minotaur, Celtic Warrior were 5 per box. Those were the only ones I remembered cause they're the ones I want to eventually army build. No 2 per box this time around.
