What a Weekend to be Without Internet Access!

Having spent a long weekend in the back-end of beyond mountain biking, I completely missed the TRU 342 and Amazon price matching deals :-(

Is there anyone who (over) filled their boots and is now looking looking to off-load any sets? Particularly sore about missing out on:

8679 Tokyo International Circuit for £39.99 - http://www.brickset.com/detail/?set=8679-1
7965 MF - http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=7965-1
7964 Republic Frigate - http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=7964-1
7879 Hoth Echo Base - http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=7879-1

    It was proceeded by 7 days of feeling awful, an entire week off work and I wasn't even well enough to do normal skiving activities like play games and build LEGO. Anyway, I was so out of it, I wasn't even aware these deals were going on, and there was absolutely no phone signal whatsoever within a 10 mile radius of where I was staying, in this day and age I tell thee, it's not right!

    10/10 for going mountain biking, was a great weekend for it wasnt it - anywhere nice?

    Dalby Forest in Yorkshire, 23 mile route, it was one of the toughest rides of my life given my weakened condition but it was a great trail and the weather was indeed kind.

    Are you trying to tarnish the public's image that AFOL have taken years to build?! ;oP

    Lucky sod!!

    Off topic, but sorry - me too!

    Went to the LookOut yesterday. Pic of brother's front wheel attached. Needless to say we walked back to the car!

    Serves him right for buying a bike for £75 in the sale last year!!! Having experienced mine yesterday, I think he too will now be out to spend a fair whack more. Lesson learnt!

    ^^ sorry, I was thinking about LEGO the entire way round, honest !

    ^ :-D that is one taco'd wheel.

    Hi atkinsar. I have a spare 8679 if you still need one.
  • cavegodcavegod Member Posts: 806
    i always like to think about lego when going round Ae Line trail or the Black route at Glentress :-)
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ NZMember Posts: 4,179
    Glentress? Dalby? you guys are teasing me, jammy so and sos

    Took my son in the trailer at the weekend, was his first time ever out biking with me, managed a 3h jaunt, which is the longest Ive managed since becoming a dad. Not exactly a 'proper' ride but fun anyway despite the lack of berms.

    @atkinsar, 8679 is still half price (£39.99) for in-store pick-up at TRU.
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ NZMember Posts: 4,179
    plus the MF is still pretty cheap at amazon
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,272
    ^^ no stock anywhere near me I'm afraid.

    ^ was hoping to do a bit better than £99.99.
  • MinifigsMeMinifigsMe Member Posts: 2,844
    Out of stock near me I'm afraid. :(
    I also missed out on the deals, I was doing my best to resist, and now regret not picking up the super cheap games.
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,272
    Big thanks to @kevbags for sorting me out with 8679, much appreciated!

    Lol. I'll cancel the one I just reserved at Reading then. :o)
  • atkinsaratkinsar Member Posts: 4,272
    ^ thanks for thinking of me though James. Funnily enough, Reading was the closest store to me that had stock i.e. not very close at all!
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,834
    ^ Only 20 mins for us. Might get it for Sam.
  • LostInTranslationLostInTranslation UKMember Posts: 5,594
    ^ Is that as well as or instead of the DS? :)
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,834
    As well! Okay, you got me! Maybe it can under the tree for the family. Daddy might enjoy that one! Much better than the pants and socks I think he's got! :o/
