    @Onebricktoomany got any upcs? Wanna try brickseek to see if they pop up.

    I'm more than just a little jealous. I've been hitting Walmart and TRU every other day this week, hoping to come across the LM2 sets a bit early, to no avail. I feel like a full crack fiend right now. I even ended up grabbing a Unikitty! set in an effort to stave off the shakes. :p

    @Astrobricks, lol, no they are not...all I picked up were the polys...@Pumpkin_3CK5, I didn't think to take a pic of the upcs for the new sets, doh!  Might head back this evening.  They had a ton of new shipments throughout store in the aisles to put out.  Hopefully some contained more Lego.  This stand was located at the front main entrance far from Lego shelves in toy section.  No other TLM2 product was out at this time.

    Crossroads was a UK soap from the 70's/80's, and there was a popular character called Benny in it. He was a handy man with a beanie hat rather than a retro spaceman with damaged helmet.
    Not just a soap... But a really bad one.

    I'm looking forward to poking around town tomorrow for these sets. Hopefully the local stores already have them and have just been waiting for the release date. Now, how much am I prepared to spend on an impulse...

    Bugger! I was holding out for that one. Couldn't find any in store either, unfortunately. I spoke with a Toyworld employee and she told me they wouldn't be getting any new sets at all until late January. I hope that's not the case for all Australian stores.

    Actually, it was listed for $9.99 on the US [email protected] site, but sold out - Target had them available for purchase.

    But I'll at least wait for the movie until I buy any set(s).

    Just ordered #70831 Emmet's Dream House/Rescue Rocket! and #70841 Benny's Space Squad from LEGO Shop (UK) online. Emmet's Dream House seems the perfect first set from the theme to build! Obviously, I had to pick up Benny's crew at the same time, I love the pink "Lenny" minifig! :-)

    Bought 2 of the Benny battle packs this morning just because I think it will be a hard to get for awhile. The rest of the sets I'll wait for a discount.

    Bought a few of the Space squad packs as I'm not sure if those will ever go on sale. It is a pretty good deal for essentially 3 Classic space figures, including on never produced before in pink.

    The early demand for Benny's Space Squad is strong, but I'm not sure it will last.  It's serious collectors that are pushing the initial sales, but that will slow.  I fully expect to see the set on sale during 2019.

    Target will no doubt do 20% off TLM2 gear the week of the release and other retailers something similar. All three previous film sets have gotten big discounts and enormous supply so I would be surprised for anything different this time around.

    No doubt Benny’s Space Squad will see 20-30% discounts in the future, but the $2-3 savings is not worth the wait to many who have waited decades for this set. Happy toy hunting!

  • stluxstlux LuxembourgMember Posts: 2,099
    You can already get 20% off most TLM2 sets (including Benny's Space Squad) here in the Benelux, and that's even before most retailers have started stocking them.

    So yeah, I'm eager to get the new Unikitty and classic space characters, but I'll just wait until the inevitable 30-40% promotions start showing up in a couple of weeks.

    The biggest sets are highly overpriced in Sweden, especially 70830 at $82....

    I can confirm that I happily parted with $9.99 to get it today.

    Another poly is spotted at Walmart according to thebrickfan.com #30529 Mini master building Emmet poly, apparently also supposed to be available at Target stores as well

    Hmmmm..  I was feeling pretty happy that I wasn't liking the look of a lot of the movie sets. However, I've watch the reviews on Brickvault and just2good and I'm liking far too many now! The Rex large explorer and party bus look so much fun!

    I ‘pre-ordered’ Benny’s Space Squad on Amazon. Was supposed to be delivered today, just got a notice that delivery has been delayed until January 8th. Ugh. 
  • Speedman29Speedman29 Brickswell CloseMember Posts: 1,163
    Smyths and The Entertainer both had several of the new sets in. I was all set to pick some up, but my daughter told me I have to wait until the film is out otherwise it'll spoil it for me!

    #$%^ing Walmart cancelled by order for the #70841 because they could not 'verify my payment method' when I used the same paypal account I always use for Walmart purchases, and [email protected] is limiting the sets to 2, which means I'm paying shipping if I only want those.. what a PITA. This may be a blessing in disguise if the sets ever get discounted, but annoying nonetheless.

    I got the same email. It doesn’t appear that any of the WalMart or Target stores in the Dallas area have these sets in stock yet so it looks like I’ll be waiting.
  • hoodaddyhoodaddy USMember Posts: 272
    I may try B&N tomorrow as they showed in stock. Would like to have a couple anyway.

    Popped into the Entertainer today and their LEGO Movie 2 display was near empty, there were 2 #70822 - Sweetest Friends (one of which is now mine) and a load of #70823 Emmet's Thricycle and #10895 Duplo Playground. I asked if they had any more in stock (particularly Benny's Space Squad) and was told they'd put all their stock of it out and it sold out almost instantly. They said they even had someone buy the copy of space Squad from their Window Display.

    Have you checked Barnes and Noble? The stores around me had some, albeit in limited quantities.

    I thought about it, but Ill just wait a bit as Im sure more will be released. 9.99 is a really good deal for that set. I just hope LEGO does not decide to do a price bump on them to 14.99 or something like that

    Notice the gap in the Benny's squad sets...

    There are only a few of the sets I want this go around so it will be a bit easier on my wallet as opposed to the TLM 'one' line.
    Though the extras I will buy of the Benny Space Squad set will likely make up for the not buying other sets.

    I did buy a couple of Benny Space Squad sets from LEGO when I saw that [email protected] had the Batman movie figure pack (with Bat signal), as well as the City accessory pack with the Azure blue bike, for 50% off each so I got to the point of free shipping.

    I've been hunting TLM2 sets across Houston. In the northwest, it seems like either the stores haven't put them out yet, or people are snatching them up as fast as they can. Only a Barnes and Noble had a large variety of the sets available. No Benny's Nostalgia Money Squad, however. Too many AFOLs in their mid-40s around these parts, it seems!
