I also ended up ordering multiple times and only one order went through correctly and I remember thinking that it was lucky I re-ordered because if I hadn't I wouldn't have got one as they were all out by the time they sorted it. My memory isn't brilliant though so maybe I have it slightly wrong.
@princedraven, you may well be right, I thought they lasted into a second day but my memory sucks too.
The seller has quite a few..
Edit: Should have read the end first.
I'm only aiming for one TC-14, but I would like a few Hulks!
I'm more than happy that both promotions (TC-14& Hulk) also apply in Germany (all over Europe?)!!!
Damn! That's not fair! :D
well it wasnt me ! I was at Langleys picking up some series 2 they still have.,,
Now we are three.
I purchased tickets for the midnight showing of The Avengers may 4th at 12:15 AM (the night of may 3rd). This means I won't be on a computer until at least a couple hours after the sale starts.
Am I screwing myself here? The only thing I really care about is grabbing a minifigure along w/ my imperial shuttle order (which will hopefully be somewhat discounted).
I also wouldn't turn down the DS if it was discounted enough (at least 20%) as well.
Is there even a small chance this could be the end of the DS or IS and they'll mark them down accordingly and once they're gone they're gone? <<<<This is my only fear. This is my 1st may 4 sale as an AFOL so I have no idea what to expect. Site delays etc.?
I feel as though I'm worrying for nothing and the only deals will be the minifigure and maybe some free shipping.. In which case I'd be pretty upset for missing the movie over.
This where a clone could come in handy.
I'm not expecting a lot on sale or anything really worth it, especially if there is no free shipping involved (not sure if there is or not).
If there is free shipping and the Falcon is on sale, I may go ahead and get one or two, but I do not think 20% is enough to justify a DS or IS (Imperial Shuttle) IMO, even if there is free shipping.
What I hope is if you buy anything at LEGO over 75 you will get the free fig (like what occurred last year, if my memory serves me correctly)
I think I got a Maersk train and also got the ARF shadow trooper.
I expect to be on a computer by 2 AM EST as I live in eastern Canada which puts me a hour ahead.
I'll probably just wait and check the sale out after the movie and hope I haven't missed much. Thanks again.
@Monkeyhanger did you save $ over the US RRP by ordering IS from amazon.it
or just over the inflated UK RRP?
We deal with some inflated pricing up here as well despite our $ being basically at par with the US $ right now.
DS = $399 US and $499 CAD
IS = $259 US and $309 CAD
It's quite depressing to be honest.
1. FREE TC-14 minifigure with a LEGO Star Wars purchase of $75 or more.
2. FREE LEGO Star Wars poster with all LEGO Star Wars purchases, featuring the new exclusive 10225 R2-D2 set.
3. Exclusive Sales and Deals, including FREE Standard Shipping with all orders of $75 or more. (Per the small print it has to be $75 of Star Wars merchandise)
Will we find out a few days before which deals/sale prices they will offer or will it only become apparent on the 4th??
Reason is i plan to go buy something, and then have my girlfriend go buy me something so I can have 2.
£50 orders qualify for free delivery regardless of what they are.
Any Lego Star Wars purchase gets you a UCS R2D2 poster and minibag tie fighter.
TC-14 comes with any spend of £50 of more that is Star Wars stuff. Purchse of giftcards do not count towards qualifying purchase.
All the above exclude backlog purchases, so only in stock purchases made on 4th and 5th, while stocks last.
It also says there will be some items of Star Wars stuff on sale, but doesn't divulge what they are.
The whole offer is per transaction, so multiple £50+ purchases will qualify as long as they are separate orders.
Legoland park shops and discovery centres are excluded, proper Lego shops and online purchases only.
So you can make 100 transactions to only pay enough to get a TC-14 each time(and I'm sure there are those on this board that will just that :-) ) and get points for every transaction and get the fig every transaction... unless LEGO changed their rules (which I do not see anything as such in their advert)...
What I am hoping for it to be like the beginning of the sale last year that anything at LEGO.com totaling 75 will get a fig and free shipping. Cause for that I may get a few Maersk trains or get some Batman funhouses (well get some Funhouses on backorder anyway)
Saying that, I might end up making 3 eligible transactions. Can't think of anything else I might want at the right price should we get some decent reductions apart from the planned Y-Wing, UCS R2, and maybe a DS for my nephew if it looks to be EOL.
I say "only" because to a reseller, that is not a lot of money for inventory. To a hobbiest of course, it is a bunch of money.
Some of the resellers here spend hundreds of thouands of dollars on Lego...
I've already bought the three SW sets I'm most interested in, outside of a MF. If there's no sale on that one, I'm probably going to have to pass on the promo this year. I'd rather save my cash to pick up a few hulks later in the month.
I read on a forum somewhere a reseller with a shop that complained because he could only purchase 99 items at a time only from shop at home...well...biz and hobby is different
For a business, it isn't really all that much money, but that is another view point.
My local Lego store tells me that they have a half-dozen resellers who spend tens of thousands of dollars on a regular basis there. I have no doubt there are resellers who spend millions (I can think of two off the top of my head who probably do)
Different world from a hobby, that's for sure! :)
