    Yeah, bummer. Tried to order, but the only available address selections are Canadian provinces (figured it was worth a shot trying). Ah well.

    Just out of curiosity, are people buying this to build or resell? The prices on BL are quite high, so I assume it is the latter.

    ^ I plan to pick one up and build it on Christmas with my dad, if you're not going to build it, don't buy it.

    I'm not into Lego for the money, but for the pure enjoyment of turning your ideas into reality. (what the heck happened to "just imagine" on the back of instructions!?) There's more to Lego than money ;-)

    Thanks. I've always bought LEGO for my own enjoyment, never for the money. But this set generated quite a bit of discussion in other threads so I thought I would ask.

    Technic isn't a theme I enjoy, but this set looks pretty awesome.

    Yes, there is... but if you put enough zeros after the "money" part, it starts to get interesting... :)

    I'd love to see a rerelease of this set so I can build one.

    They did appear to be willing to ship to the UK, though - I got to the point of confirming the order to see if they would allow it, and it let me proceed to the final step before I abandoned the transaction.

    These have been sitting at my Lego store for a week with more in the back. "Limited"...yeah right. Maybe it is the Canadian price of $250 that is not appealing to resellers...

    Around £150 before taxes and shipping were added, so hardly a steal....

    Crap! they're out of stock, I didn't even have a chance to order one :-(
  • quir0zquir0z Member Posts: 20
    The set it's almost identical to 9398, but has about 200 more pieces and the blue color I think it's exclusive. The limited Edition part... well... 20.000 of them is A LOT. Honestly, I'm buying one extra to resell or trade (just to help me fund my Lego addiction), And I assure I'll sell it way below others would be asking at that time.

    Hmm I tried this and although it would let me enter payment details from a UK address it would not let me put in a UK shipment address. How far did you go dr d? Obviously irrelevant now as it's all sold, but be useful to know if you found a special trick!

    No, not really... the "dollar sign" on a set means nothing, other than what it is worth relative to everything else in life.

    For $400, I can either have #41999, or I can have 3 or 4 other Technic sets that will also give me enjoyment. There is nothing wrong with making the personal choice to keep #41999 if that makes you happy. It wouldn't make me happy, I'd rather have the Mobile Crane Mk II, Service Truck, and Excavator.

    Those three sets cost about what a #41999 is worth, it is strictly a personal choice as to what makes you happy.

    -----------

    To put it another way, a year ago I had collected every single UCS SW set that LEGO has made, including the two busts and even the rather lackluster Naboo Starfighter.

    Today? I own fewer than half of them. Why?

    The price got to the point where I looked at them on the shelf and said to myself, "you know what? I can take my family to Disney World for what those are worth".

    So that's what I'm doing, taking the family to Disney World next year with the money.

    That doesn't mean I love LEGO less, it just means that they brought me enjoyment and it is time to move on and have new enjoyment. My son will get to go to Star Wars weekends and my daughter will get to have dinner in Cinderella's Castle. Both will remember that for the rest of their lives.

    :) That is on the list, but probably not for this trip. There is so much to do at Disney, it is an event in itself.

    We're staying on the Disney property, so we can just walk to Epcot, or take the shuttle/monorail to the other places.

    Next year we might do a trip to Legoland and Universal Studios and skip Disney outright, instead planning a trip to everything else that is in that area.

    This year? We took a cruise on Carnival Magic, the kids loved that, they still ask to go back on it every month.

    I'd love to do a Disney cruise, but my lord, they are proud of that, talk about expensive. A suite on Carnival is less expensive than a regular cabin on Disney.
  • margotmargot Member Posts: 2,310
    ^You lost me at Disney. Not a fan. I can think of a thousand places I'd rather plunk down $400 plus per night on a hotel room than there. :-) And I would rather have the UCS Star Wars sets..
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    :) The hotel rooms aren't $400 a night, it is the tickets that cost an arm and a leg...

  • ColoradoBricksColoradoBricks Denver, CO, USAMember Posts: 1,674
    I went last year the week before Christmas, while we booked several months before they let us know in November they were running a promotion: free food plans with ticket and on site lodging. That really saved us a lot of money in the end.
    Side note, that was a perfect week, very little crowd, all the holidays lights out and parades and we lucked out on the weather, 5 days in the high 70ies and 1 day in the 50ies...

    Where and when are you looking at those prices? The Beach Club is where we're booked, and it sure didn't cost that much... $209 a night is what I think we're paying.

    Right before I posted, I took a screen shot, it's from Disney's site.. Good to know it's not always that crazy. When are you going?
  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332
    Disney is great, simply wonderful, can't wait to take the kids but a 10 hour flight is putting me off for now. Sea world and universal almost as great. Never been to a decent Legoland (only Windsor) but I doubt if even in FL it's in the same league as Disney/universal.

    I think I would probably skip on the Disney hotel as even a Disney loving fool like me needs a break from those big ears. Last time I went (about ten years ago - had to take my wife before we had kids so she could love it as much as me, shed never been and just didn't get it, until we got there) we stayed at the crowne plaza, close enough we could watch the Disney fireworks from our balcony. Other than a couple of conferences it felt like we had the place to ourselves which was nice too!

    The price varies a lot depending on when you go, we're going in June, first week out of school, lowest cost of the summer.

    It also depend on when you book, I watched on and off for a few weeks until the price was where I wanted it. :)

    Plus, keep in mind that we did a package that included theme park tickets, meal plan, etc. The cost is broken out by the various items and you can price them separately. I don't know if the hotel could have been had as cheaply purchased by itself.

    The total cost for 2 weeks is just over ten thousand, all up... not counting what we spend when we get there, I budgeted a thousand a day, which is what my friends who have been recently tell me it costs to do it right.

    It is indeed insane, but Disney is a magical place, there is nothing else like it on Earth. I've been to the other parks, including Universal, it is nice, but not the same.

    My wife has never been either, and she doesn't really "get it" yet... I find that many people who have never been and done the whole thing "Disney style" tend to not understand until they go.

    Our neighbor on our street who has 2 girls went this past summer, first time for them. They went because of course their friends went and told them how magical it is...

    Now they understand...

    To anyone who hasn't done it, I don't want to overstate the point... but there is a reason they sell out almost every week of the year, charging what they charge.
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Fairy Land Member Posts: 4,030
    I went for the first time at 15 and despite being an absolute nightmare of a bratty pain in the arse teenager it was a hell of a holiday. Ended up going again the year after but added an extra week. Two in Orlando then a third in the Keys to recover. It's not really a relaxing time. Especially in the heat of July.

    I have friends who have taken small children (5 ish) and I honestly think it's either better to wait or go again later in life. So much for a little one to appreciate. I would take Vegas over Disney now I'm all grown up though :-)

    Because as PT Barnum said, there is a sucker born every minute? I kid, I kid. But in all seriousness, I've been twice that I remember. Separated by 20+ years. It was ok. I enjoyed it both times, but magical wasn't my description of it. Very well marketed however is. Personally, If I were going to drop $10k on a trip, I'd rather rent an RV and hit the big national parks out west for a month. Those parks are magical to me. My point is, Disney is American commercialism at its best/worst. Yes it can be fun and create memories, but you aren't actually MISSING anything by not going. People shouldn't feel like they are somehow terrible parents if they can't afford to take their kids to Disney. And if you're dropping that much on Disney and have any plans to do it again, you really should look into a Disney timeshare. It might actually be worth your while if you drop that kind of coin on one vacation.

  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332
    Don't think anyone has said parents should feel bad, rather that if you can afford to have thousands of dollars worth of Lego sat on a shelf collecting dust selling it to fund an amazing family holiday (whether it's Disney or. Yellowstone) seems like a pretty brilliant idea.

    Anyway for your national park I raise you a splash mountain, anamatronic bears beat the real thing plus you get a catchy theme tune, a log flume and a turkey leg waiting for you when you get off! ;-)
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    This is way beyond our normal vacation budget, about 3x what we spent this year. (why else do you think I've sold most of my Star Wars UCS collection to help pay for it?)

    But it is a once in a lifetime experience, and to young kids, there is indeed something magical about it.

    My 5 year old (who will be 6 next year when we go) has seen the DVD with Cinderella's Castle, but it won't be the same as walking up to it (and into it). The actual building is just under 200ft tall, which isn't all that impressive to adults, but do you know how big that is to a 6 year old?

    It might as well be the Empire State Building!

    She'll get to meet Cinderella, have her picture taken with her, wear the dress, and eat in the castle.

    Can you put a little girl more on cloud 9 than that? She gets to be a princess, in a "real" princess castle.

    My 8 year old boy? When asked what he wants to be when he grows up, answers "a Jedi Knight". You're telling me Star Wars weekends, the Jedi training academy, and actually seeing a platoon of "real" stormtroopers and Darth Vader, in person, won't send him over the moon?

    Yes, it is crazy expensive, yes, it is commercialism at the extreme. But I'm ok with that.

    Regarding the RV thing and the national park thing, that is actually on our list as well. Perhaps 2015... A month of that won't cost nearly as much as two weeks of Disney, so it will be a nice break for the wallet.

    I never said I wouldn't do Disney, I just think it's overrated. I have friends that go multiple times a year, and I think that's just stupid in my opinion. But to each their own. My 2 year old already loves Mickey Mouse clubhouse (much to my chagrin) and we will likely try to do a Disney trip sometime in the next couple of years. It definitely won't be a regular event though :) I'm sure you will have a blast.

    My comment about feeling bad is exactly part of the marketing even if not overt. Many parents feel like if they aren't able to take their kids to Disney, they have somehow failed or let their kids down. It is to me sad that feeling is what drives many families to take vacations they probably can't afford. Especially when we have so much amazing natural and cultural wonder for far cheaper in most cases. Sadly, animatronic bears do trump the real thing to many people.

    And seriously, can you cool it with the line breaks? =D

    Like you don't have the firepower to deal with a hungry bear ;-)

    Actually, other than my shotgun, I probably don't. I used to own an AK-47, but sold it when my kids were born. One round from that is unlikly to stop a bear, but a whole magazine probably would.

    The M4 that I own now is likely to just piss the bear off, even unloading the whole magazine into it (and unlike the AK, the M4 is semi-auto only). I am not convinced that even SS109 rounds would really stop a big grizzly bear in the charge.

    Frankly, a much better gun would be a 12 ga with slugs (my personal choice is a M4 Super 90), or a M1 Garrand (which is heavy, but will reliably stop any bear).

    I personally prefer automatic weapons rather than bolt action or lever action (which is why I own a semi-auto shotgun), but frankly anything shooting a .30-06, .47-50, .338 Win, or something similar will do the trick, if you have any accuracy of course.

    ---------

    The truth? Bear spray and common sense are your best defenses against bears. Knowing how to use cover and trees and to never run in a straight line (the bear is much faster and will just run you down) are more important than the size of your gun.

I So I have been down there a bunch of times but have yet to set foot in any parts other then Pleasure island...because its free and the arena. I am taking my kids there next year during Mardi Gras and I think i'm more excited then they are.
