Is there anyone who can help me get a few of these sets, like maybe 4-6? I have plenty of bits to trade. I am in California.

    Heh... here we go again. I'd also like a few. If no bricksetter in NY offers to help us out, though, I can ask my sister to buy some for us
  • jadedancjadedanc Member Posts: 1,302

    I'd be in for a couple as well. Never got the statue one either so would take a couple of those if they are still available there and someone is making a trip.

    I am in NY. Later this week I will try to take a trip to Rockefeller Center Lego Store to see if they have these and if they have any State of Liberty polybags left.
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    Called and confirmed they have them... Heading there now. This wouldn't send a little while back:I suppose I could handle this... Would be nice TLG would acknowledge that there's 2 Lego Stores in NYC, I'm across the street from the other right now in Queens but they probably aren't getting them (haven't gotten the statue of liberty yet either). HMU on here or PM me. -bill

    I would like 2 or 3 as well!

    @Russell844 and @collect_that have sent me PMs regarding this set. I'm happy to help. But, if it is like with the Statue of Liberty, the store will likely limit buyers to 10 bags per visit. And I don't really want to make multiple visits.

    PM me if you want these. I'll probably end up limiting my purchase to 10 bags. So there may be some rationing involved...

    As with the Statue of Liberty, all I want to recover is the cost of purchase, shipping and shipping materials.

    I'll be going there sometime within the next week or two, I'll pick up as many as I can of each polybag to help people out who still want them.
  • Russell844Russell844 Member Posts: 2,420
    So it has been almost a month since I have heard from the person who said they got two of this set for me. Is there anyone else who can get me two of this set? I can pay or trade.

    Just saw this thread. I live no more then 10 minutes away by foot (if that much) and I am willing to do a 'shopping service' for any of the New York (or lego store) exclusives. I'll help you look for 10%, the paypal fee, and shipping. I' m guessing on these sets, that's about $0.50-.60 each +shipping but I'll show you a receipt after the purchase. Will ship worldwide.

    This is an open offer and not just for @Russell844
  • Russell844Russell844 Member Posts: 2,420
    ^ I'm in for two!
  • FizzlemesexyFizzlemesexy Member Posts: 123
    Cool beans. I should stop in there tomorrow and will pick them up if they are still there.

    If anyone else wants in for these or anything else, let me know.
  • alijoezacalijoezac Member Posts: 554
    I'd like one too please. Am in the UK.
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,258
    @Fizzlemesexy - I'd love 2 please.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation Member Posts: 5,572
    @fizzlemesexy - I would also like two, also in the UK.
  • SherlockbonesSherlockbones Member Posts: 411

    ^That was really nice of you to get those for everyone. If you plan on making another trip I would love to "place an order" if it's not too much trouble.
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,258
    Thanks @Fizzlemesexy, let me know what I owe.

    Also @Renny If someone fails to pay, I'll let you know what is left over.
    This was a trial run, I will make another but I'm considering some changes.

    FYI there were Batman/Robin PAB, statue of liberties, as well as a few other sets.

    And of course photos!

    forgot to add I plan on mailing them all out Saturday. I'll let you know once they are mailed.

    If you do make another run, I would be interested in getting 1 or 2.
  • SherlockbonesSherlockbones Member Posts: 411
    I don't NEED them, @teal93mr2 can have mine if he wants
  • FizzlemesexyFizzlemesexy Member Posts: 123
    @teal93mr2 Would you like 1 or 2? Please PM me your paypal and country with your # count.
  • FizzlemesexyFizzlemesexy Member Posts: 123
    Mailed out the poly bags to those who paid, invoicing those who ordered later. If you don't see a PM soon, please reach out to me.
