Came across this on slickdeals thought this would be of interest. Not sure how long it will last.

    Wow, I just noticed this like 10 minutes ago. Now it's gone. Good thing I don't care for Minecraft. lol

    I have a feeling this set will be almost impossible to ever find at retail. Even with the upcoming second run LEGO is supposed to be doing, I would bet the entire restock sells out in hours.

    I dumped my only copy when it hit $80. Wish I had a few more to help fuel other purchases.

    Having NEVER had any success ordering from B&N online I called customer service to make sure they actually has these sets instock to ship. Of course they DO NOT and this was merely a pre-order. B&N are ordering 5000 units and these will arrive in 4-6 weeks. As my orders were for resale I promptly cancelled. I think I am done wasting my time with these clowns. So don't feel bad if you missed this deal as it never actually existed.

    My order states: "Expected Ship Date: October 3, 2012", I'll keep you updated.

    I just got a 'Scheduled to Ship' email with a ship date of October 2nd. Seems like they had a few copies and decided to back-order more..

    Hopefully you receive yours. My order status said shipping 10/3/12 as well but was informed by the phone rep that this was a pre-sale only and they never had any instock. Similar stories on SD. Good luck.

    I just got an email saying my 5 shipped via UPS today. I received a tracking number that has been uploaded to the system. I imagine that means they truly have shipped. We will see in a day when there should be complete info on the tracking status.
  • doriansdaddoriansdad CTCMember Posts: 1,337
    Good job! The moronic (thank goodness) CSR only cancelled 1 of my 10. I will see if my remaining 9 ship on the 3rd! I really cannot take this outfit anymore.

    Out of stock? Can't seem to find a buy or pre-order button.

    They were gone in 10 minutes. Probably all 5,000 of them...

    When will at least ONE retailer sell this at MSRP and available for shipping?
  • brickmaticbrickmatic Member Posts: 1,071
    I remember when they first announced this as a set and some people were predicting that it wouldn't sell well. They thought the stores would have to clearance it at a steep discount at the end of the year.
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,917
    I was one of them. LOL

    Haha!

    They have, multiple times...

    I bought mine from Amazon at normal retail price awhile ago.

    The demand just outstrips supply by several orders of maginitude.

    This demonstrates just how effective the whole Cuusoo concept can be at successfully finding new niche markets for LEGO.

    Yes, this is probably not a set that would have ever been made without Cuusoo.

    Now, when can I have my Portals? :)

    I'm anxious to find out the results of the previous review session. Whats taking so long? :)
  • pharmjodpharmjod 1,170 miles to Wall Drug, USAMember Posts: 2,916
    Mine have expected delivery date of 10/8. There did not appear to be a limit to purchase so Im sure more than a few resellers scooped up many 10s or more at a time. I would have but was afraid of having an order cancelled. 5 will be sufficient of an experiment for me for now :)

    So, if B&N got some in stock does that mean [email protected] will have them soon? I see more of them on eBay now.

    All I want is the Creeper face. I have some "plans" for it.

    I guess we know that none of these are being parted out. Bricklink was a miss.

    One of my friends went to PaxPrime in Seattle (gaming convention) and according to him, the Minecraft booth had a lot of these sets. He was able to get one of them at MSRP. :(

    If only I had known he went to the convention and there was a Minecraft booth.

    So jealous.

    Minecraft booth? Who would a thunk. Did they have one for Borderlands 2? :-) Awesome game. I have a title of 'Splatter Witch". And, I'm such a nice person. How'd that happen? The title I mean. Not me being nice. :-)

    Awww... really? Minecraft AND Lego at Pax? Man, that's one thing I really miss about living in Vancouver. Awhile back I even got a Lego Universe promo (just a bunch of printed tiles, but still neat).
