I'll link it here because it's interesting to see all the chatter, but please remember that slickdeals is also an affiliate revenue driven site, so please keep Brickset in mind and re-click through our links if you purchase in the future.
And for future reference, the LEGO [email protected] icon is on the right hand menu of the main Brickset page
@rocao Do you get the revenue when someone click the [email protected] links below "Want to Buy it ?" subheadings at the bottom of the review ? Those links are more accessible for the casual visitors to brickset page
But yes, clicking through the Amazon and LEGO.com purchase links will earn Brickset a small percentage of money spent. I'm glad to hear you think those links are in an accessible place. Huw does a good job not letting the pursuit of affiliate income get in the way of a clean interface and utility for brickset users.
My only regret was that I found out about it before coming here, and did not click the Brickset link. :(
Is there anything (besides honesty) keeping people from checking out and then buying another right afterwards? Will Lego cancel your order?
"We appreciate your interest in ordering large quantities of a particular product. However, in our efforts to be fair to all consumers and children who order products from us, we do have to set a limit of 1 per customer or household on certain items. If your request exceeds this limit, we have cancelled your additional orders for the Minecraft set item 21002 to ensure availability for other LEGO® Shop at Home enthusiasts."
Not too happy about paying $7 for shipping, but I really want this set. Will order one shortly.
Kind of curious how a person could order more than a single set since it was limited to 1 per customer? Were people using separate orders to get multiple sets? The shipping costs would certainly add up quickly...
"The rep I just spoke to over the phone told me that Toys R Us, Amazon, etc will NOT be getting additional supply. This is now a Lego store exclusive, if you will. Whether they'll be in plentiful supply throughout the holidays, I don't know- the statements made IRT having "enough to last us through the holiday" was made in June and doesn't necessarily translate to "you'll be able to waltz into a store and get one.""
If the store manager refuses, well... you might be out of luck then... But my store is happy to do it.
Would ordering an item that is actually OOS and then adding in the Minecraft set to the order work?
I feel bad for doing this, but I might order something like a Ninjago Spinner and then return it after I pick up the order. :-/
The person who helped me was very nice, and was surprised to see it for sale. He told me that they pop up and disappear quickly so he had me running across the store to make sure I got one in time (he also mentioned he might try ordering one for himself if they were available later on). He wouldn't accept the $5 coupon as he said it was only for items sold in the store. So I ended up getting it for RRP plus tax. I ended up spending the $5 on a couple other sets...
I really like the employees in the Nashville store. They are all very nice, which I think reflects on the store manager (Darnell).
514 left in stock right now, going one at a time, will be interested to see how long they last.
My daughter will be happy.
Remember back in August when Amazon had these in and out for the whole month? Do you think it'll happen again? But back in August, those were tiny little shipments, not a whole shipment of 500+. :-/
I'm sure a few people did the same, but that doesn't account for 514 of them moving in an hour.
Impressive... most impressive...
I said it before, I'll say it again, Lego is missing a chance here to really make something of Cuusoo, but they need to promote this more, and get more product out there. They could ship 10,000 of these to Amazon and they would still sell out.
Good thing I didn't make my order yesterday night!
EDIT: Can't seem to add it into my cart...
