Glad I've just about got all of the series 8 I want.
They are really ramming these out. I now agree with others, they are releasing them too quickly. Two sets a year would be much better for everyone.
I have heard parents and children complain about this while out getting my own sets.
However i am glad that the lego company has the common sense to get out a product that will be popular for christmas unlike the nintendo company refusing to release Animal crossing new leaf, except for in japan, b4 christmas even though AC is a very popular line.
I wasn't planning on getting many but i might just get a few others(either chosen or random) just to give a little more business to a company with a working brain.
What I find interesting is that about a week ago I checked on eBay and saw no one pre-ordering these, except two people requesting outrageous sums of money to sell you a pre-order box..
I really hope this is not the new trend.
Id much rather buy one box and be done with it than trying to find sets in a store, especially when people try to cherry pick the rarest or 'best' figures
so... only 2 each of the rare figures per box? Is this another one of those 'early bird' specials where the later boxes will have at least 3 of a rare fig or what?
I also think that if LEGO is seriously limiting the rares to 2 per box that they are going to be shooting themselves in the foot.
Was it the same breakdown as white fang's review in eurobrick, where there were only two complete sets?
^^^ You may want to make sure that the minifigs are included in the promo before you buy. I was in TRU today and feel like the signs specified it was $25 off $100 'construction' sets.
