    ^ Wow, they are limiting purchases to 1
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Fairy Land Member Posts: 4,030
    Gives more people a fair shot instead of them being sucked up quickly to be sold on.
  • andystarandystar Member Posts: 275
    ^ Agree, curious though if they expect demand to outstrip their supply again. Wonder how long it will last at [email protected] or if this is an indicator they are shipping more stock to retailers.

    It made the frontpage of slickdeals and if anything is going to test the supply, that would be it.

    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.

    Went ahead and got one, although shipping was close to $7.00.
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    @rocao - please also post a link direct to [email protected] as well. I went to visit the slick deals page, but want an easy way to come back here and click through to give you the money! :)

    And for future reference, the LEGO [email protected] icon is on the right hand menu of the main Brickset page

    ^^^^ I love how the slickdeals page provide links to brickset for Minecraft reviews and story.

    @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
  • rocaorocao Administrator Posts: 4,290
    I don't get anything but there's this fellow that also posts here that takes an inordinate number of cruises every year :P

    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.

    I had $15 ready to spend with [email protected] (a $10 gift card from Lego for an order that they botched, $5 in VIP), so it brought the price with shipping down to $29.

    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?
  • RennyRenny USAMember Posts: 1,145
    I actually placed an order for 2 (I know, shame on me) and received an email that my second order was being cancelled so there is definitely a strict 1 per household limit.
  • cloaked7cloaked7 Member Posts: 1,448
    ^ Yup, I only ordered 1 but got an email that stated the following...

    "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."

    So this is what happens when I am disconnected from the Internet for 24 hours.

    Not too happy about paying $7 for shipping, but I really want this set. Will order one shortly.
  • Skyward72Skyward72 Member Posts: 19
    ^^^Spoke to customer service this morning and they said the cancel email went out to everyone who ordered the set because many people tried to order multiple single sets.
  • yys4uyys4u USA SoCalMember Posts: 1,092
    I saw this posted when I was at a coffee shop and wasn't happy about paying 7 bucks for shipping also, but figured I'd still buy the set. I wanted to wait till I got home to make the purchase so I wouldn't be entering banking info on public wifi, and of course forgot when I got home, and just checked now to find out their sold out again...

    Same here. Are you in the US?
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,917
    Never mind, OOS now.
  • cloaked7cloaked7 Member Posts: 1,448
    Hopefully they will be back in stock. One would think so.
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,917
    Gonna wait till Amazon gets them in, free shipping too.

    I had a chance to go to the B&M store yesterday morning and order one with free shipping (they do that if they don't have them in the store). Anyway, it was a great deal with the VIP points added onto it. In fact, I think there was a slight discount over the RRP of the set.

    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...
  • ZonZon Member Posts: 214

    Gonna wait till Amazon gets them in, free shipping too.

    From Slickdeals thread (page 16 by cakefoo):

    "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.""
  • cloaked7cloaked7 Member Posts: 1,448
    Interesting about it being an exclusive, but not a surprise. That makes me think the 2nd production run was smaller than what some thought it would be. My goodness, even with a limit of 1 per household it sure sold out fast, less than 24 hours.
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    ^ Yes, they need to make a lot more of this set, or people will lose interest in Cuusoo. They should be promoting the heck out of this, they are missing an opportunity.
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,917
    @Zon, thanks for the info. Looks like I will have to pay $8 for shipping. :-/ Maybe I'll try ordering one at the LEGO store and get free shipping.
  • sweenersweener Member Posts: 8
    In stock again.
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,917
    @Farmer_John How did you get the employee to order one for you? I emailed my store this morning and I was told they only order items they USED to have in stock, but unavailable at the moment. As far as I know, these sets haven't made its way to physical LEGO stores yet.

    You ask nicely... :) They should do it, ask for the store manager if they refuse.

    If the store manager refuses, well... you might be out of luck then... But my store is happy to do it.

    ^ I think it was the manager that replied to the email. LOL

    Would ordering an item that is actually OOS and then adding in the Minecraft set to the order work?
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    ^ That's what I did. Ordered some NRG Zanes (which are sold out everywhere it seems) and a Minecraft set. They honored the free shipping. This time anyway.
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,917
    Do you know if the package comes from [email protected] or a special LEGO store fulfillment centre?

    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. :-/
  • cloaked7cloaked7 Member Posts: 1,448
    The LEGO store in Charlotte has ordered items from the store for me several times. I learned about it from an employee. They were glad to help.
  • Farmer_JohnFarmer_John USA - 4,035 Miles from 62 West Wallaby St., Wigan, Lancashire, UKMember Posts: 2,404
    @LegobrandonCP - I was going to be in the area anyway, so decided to stop in to spend a $5 coupon I had in hand. I saw that the Minecraft was available earlier in the morning, and thought I would try using the $5 coupon to help purchase it if it was still available. I figured they wouldn't have it in hand, but B&M stores provide free shipping for items they do not have in hand.

    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).

    Wow, that is ridiculous. I'm guessing there are resellers out there with LOTS of accounts.
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,917
    ^ Amazing.

    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+. :-/
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    I bought 2, 1 each using my account and my wife's account, but otherwise that was it.

    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.
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,917
    True. I'm just gonna be happy about the fact that Amazon is selling these and I have my fingers crossed that they are gonna get some more in this afternoon.

    Good thing I didn't make my order yesterday night!
