If there are people willing to trade other sets for my model store, then I will be in Sheffield.
Word on the street is that tomorrow's minifigure set is of a "generic band"; not sure if it's the official minifigure pack. When I got to the store they were giving t-shirts with the minimum spend, because I guess they ran out of retail store sets. (And that really is sickening about people palming them off on feeBay.)
On the PAB wall:
- 1x2 bricks in Medium Blue and Dark Red
- 1x2 tiles in Lime
- 1x4 tiles in Reddish Brown
- 1x8 tiles in White
- 2x2 tiles in Dark Tan
- "cheese" slopes in Trans Neon Orange
but mostly your regular selection of bricks, windscreens etc.
I'm having difficulty deciding what to get for tomorrow, but right now my biggest concern is getting to the store early enough. See you guys there.
Met up with @pb66 and exchanged very large parcels, he finally got his 7327 and I got a Republican Frigate. I joined the queue outside the door at about 09:15 but it moved quickly. I snagged a Friends Campervan set and Huw's Technic Tractor he reviewed this week. Got the precious store and paid.
Just as I paid I noticed the new Business Card set on the shelf (£11.99), which I wanted and thought I had better fight my way to the Pab wall and filled 2 containers mainly with the bricks and tiles Silentmode listed above. Luckily the queue had shortened to a few people and I soon paid again, but no store this time. The staff in store were very friendly and chatty and offered to hold my bags in the storeroom until I returned later in the day. Nice gesture, very much appreciated.
Manchester was heaving today, with the Pride parade and Man Utd at home and the tram network was just about coping with all the disruption.
Now back home - later than anticipated after a train was cancelled but a good day none the less.
I've just looked on Bricklink and there's 1 seller with 5 stores at £70 each - wonder how he got all those - organised a Lego Store coach party? and somebody else with 2. Theres several on **bay as well. I like the seller who has put "very rare - only 300 in the UK" in his blurb. Wont be so rare next weekend when another 300 get released!
Is it profiteering or Supply & Demand? - I'm not sure
Are there more stores planned this year other than sheffield?
Better picture to come.
Was actually looking for the Rock Band pack, but no luck.
No grab bags too.
Another adult was there looking at it too, could be one of the bricksetters??
Lots of HH left.
But I had some decent red 6 x 10, 4 x 6 plates in there too.
Also about 25 2 x 4 bricks.
To be honest, I don't think they are the ones from a built model, because I haven't seen any display changes, all the displaying stuff are still there. They did move the Superheroes stuff from the middle of the shop to the side in replace of MF series.
Just wondering about the holiday ornament - any colour
and their poly bags stock?
Also looking for the halloween accessories pack too if they have any stock in??
But they have a christmas ball decoration thing for 2.99 to fill your own from the PAB
