I don't see a thread on this. I received a survey email about our MBA exprience in which they said that Level Three (Kits 7-9) was in development. Has anyone heard any more details on this?

    I keep searching for details on it.
    My son had his bday in December, and my mom gave him a subscription to MBA for 2012-2013. He has really loved the first year of this, and as a parent I really think it is a wonderful concept for kids.
    Despite my searching,I just have not heard a peep about the sets. I heard one minor rumor about the first kit, but I do not believe it is valid.

    (By give him a subscription, I mean she gave money, so I can order the product when it becomes available.)

    I received the same email - most of the questions revolved around the delivery method - or so it seemed to me. Did I like the current delivery system (1 every 2 months), or would I like to be able to get the 6 sets at once?

    I wondered whether this meant that those of us who signed up at the beginning last year would be without our bi-monthly package for a while.

    I'm curious to know if they kits 2-6 will be available for about 2 years like the normal life span of LEGO sets. I haven't bought a subscription yet but have been meaning to...

    Say someone sees something from kit 8 that really hooks them, then decide to order level 1 and 2 so that he can chronologically get level 3. Will we be able to do this as the levels progress? Or are you expected to follow as they are released?

    I don't see an easy way to edit. I just realized that these #7 comes with the box/brick separator and storage tray.
    i.e. This is why the cost seemed initial high, when it isn't.

    @bluelion3 Thanks for the heads up on these. When they said "in development" on the survey, I guess they meant "in post-production"! These look great, and are bigger than some of the other kits. It is still a decent price, at 631 pieces for $60.

    Thanks, @bluelion3.
    This is great timing with the double VIP.
    On the other hand, I just started to check-out and free shipping would be better.
  • dsdg88dsdg88 Member Posts: 133
    So it seems if you order during March 12-15 (and add $15 worth of stuff) you get both free shipping and double VIP! http://www.brickset.com/news/article/?ID=2641

    Thanks for the heads-up, these looks great. Very happy with this program so far. I can't recommend it enough. The books are very well-done and enjoyable to flip through.

    These sound like such cool sets, I wish we could get them in the UK :(
