    Just got a cancellation on one of my orders of 4... Not sure if it was the first or second. Either way I would brace for wave of cancellations...

    I picked up my order at my local TRU today and they must have been prepared because they had no less the 30 sets in two different locations.

    the 4 I ordered from TRU.com shipped. nothing yet on the 8 i got off of two ebay orders, but now im prepping for cancellations.

    I got shipment confirmation for my 4 from TRU and my 4 from ebay so I'm good.

    May be another shift in TRU policies, I went to pick up 2 #79004 that I had bought with store pick-up a few days ago, at $25.50. Just in case I brought an eBay receipt showing them at $19.25 and they did a price match on my 2s. I was impressed....

    ^ No need to laugh, if you aren't a collector or reseller, for the vast majority of sets, 1 is plenty. Sometimes 2, for things like Joust or Horizon Express, because they were meant to be used in pairs, but most of the time, 1 is just fine.

    So don't feel bad, just be happy you got 1 at a great price!

    How is the joust meant to be used in a pair?

    ^^^by combining two joust sets into one. See back of the box
  • dougtsdougts Oregon, USAMember Posts: 4,118
    just got confirmation on the set of 4 placed on ebay at 6:30pm EDT yesterday. still awaiting word on the 4 placed at 2:12am EDT this morning

    Take a look at the back of the box, it shows what the set looks like when doubled up 2x.

    Frankly, it doesn't look right to me without two of them because of that picture.

    Back to back or in a ring arrangement, Lego advertises this on the Joust box.

    Next LEGO marketing strategy; boxes showing a fleet of vehicles. :)

    ^ well the new car carrier does conveniently come only half-filled with cars
  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,240
    ^ That is what the "small car" polybag is for.

    Way, way longer...

    Given the purchase limits at eBay and the complete lack of purchase limits at toysrus.com, I think a huge number of these were purchased...

    I only got 4 orders in on eBay (1 of which has been canceled now), but I got more than that in at the main .com web site and already have shipping confirmations for a few of those.

    I suspect that they'll ship out the .com orders first, given the higher price point, and if any are left, they'll do the eBay orders last.
  • margotmargot Member Posts: 2,310
    My eBay order, from yesterday afternoon, has shipped .
    Maybe this is a big reseller sting ? Lol
  • FrictionPinFrictionPin Member Posts: 144
    My ebay order has shipped as well. Purchased last night around 7pm EST.
  • samiam391samiam391 A Log Cabin in KY, United StatesMember Posts: 4,249
    Both of my orders, placed yesterday on eBay, have already been shipped with tracking indicating their departure from TRU's facility.
  • FrictionPinFrictionPin Member Posts: 144
    And the negative feedback is already starting to show up by those whose order was cancelled.
  • BrickarmorBrickarmor USAMember Posts: 1,257
    My orders from TRU.com shipped within 12 hours of ordering. Super impressed. But those didn't have the $25 off $100. Still waiting for the ones on evilbay.

    I don't have the box handy, so didn't see it on the back. Interesting though, because other than more building, the joust set itself is complete as is. Of course, the CC is fine as is, but that didn't stop Lego from showing how 6! of them would look on the back of the box.

    Mine shipped but I only did one round. With all the sales over the last month or two I need to go into recovery mode until I get some things sold.

    If everyone on this thread 'fesses up to how many they bought, we might have an estimate of the total sold. :-)

    :) Last time I did that, I was attacked for being an evil reseller and ripping sets out of little Timmy's hands.

    So, given that this deal has been live for 24 hours, can I safely post how many I bought without being called an evil reseller? ;)
    Is there anyone still around here who beats the Little Timmy drum any more? I thought we had weeded those suckers out so that the only folks left are those that would feel no remorse in running poor Timmy over with a shopping cart if it meant getting a good clearance deal.

    Timmy stomped on my foot today and boxed me out at TRU to get the last Disney Infinity Mickey Mouse that I was going to buy for my son for Christmas, I guess he gets even sometimes.

    ^I'm tired of all the reselling talk in the shopping threads. It belongs in the reselling thread. You can go there and talk about the 200 Barrel Escapes you purchased.

    Yeah, but we still have the suckers that won't back up the shopping cart full of their clearance LEGO just to run him over a second time.

    Oh... I was supposed to beat the "drum"?

    Err, sorry Little Timmy, I thought I was supposed to "beat Little Timmy".

    It isn't my fault, really, the forum made me do it! :)

    How did you know that is how many I purchased? Are you looking at my e-mail again? I thought you said you'd stop! :)

    I'm from Texas, I drive a big 4x4 truck, I can run over Little Timmy, Sister Sally, and Mommy all at once in their little Smart Car, all without even getting out of 1st gear!

    If Little Timmy comments offend you that much .......recommend professional help. J/K. Unless, you're feeling guilty? ;)

  • 12651265 Member Posts: 943
    I got my 4 sets I ordered for store pickup. A store rep said they had an influx of folks earlier picking up their sets. Not a single set left on the shelves.

    Yeah, just tell us about the good deals and updates. Otherwise keep quite :P

    Or, if you have a good deal for me that's ok too.

    Or, if you find a good stacking discount. But that's it!

    Everyone is a reseller around here :) small or large. {anyone who has sold a set for whatever reason counts as a reseller}

    Otherwise for little tiny 1 set purchase of toy I don't think any one would wait for a deal :D I don't see old granny running on for lego deals. And waiting by the side of computer screen. She was pushing cart worth of 400$ toys for gifts at toys r us..... And they won't be buying 4 or 8 of same sets common stop thrashing one selves lol

    I didn't complain about reselling, I asked to keep the reselling talk in the reselling thread. Pretty sure that's how it's supposed to be, but I could be wrong.

    @gmpirate, resellers aren't the only people who post about deals...

    I was holding out for double points tomorrow.
    I don't think anyone was dying for this set until it hit 50%.
    Timmy & I won't shed too many tears on this one. ;)

  • legomattlegomatt Member Posts: 2,546

    I believe it's acceptable between discrete friends in extreme circumstances... (just don't tell the elf).

    I never got a ship confirmation from TRU or Ebay, but I got a UPS My Choice delivery notice. 4 of the ones I ordered from Ebay should be here today.
