    Anything in the "Hard to Find" or "Exclusive" categories.

    Thanks, I thought that too but the lego shop website has a few things that are discountable last year's tru black Fri thing and some other stuff. Just trying to plan ahead with double VIP points,or the elusive triple points...

    Also this I believe is only for the US. Other countries can still have sales/discounts on them.

    Also when they say no discount it means that LEGO nor other retailers can discount the sets, it does not mean you cannot use VIP points to cheapen the set. It just means that you will likely not seem them on sale/clearance any time soon anywhere.

    Yes, thank you - but I seem to remember a list floating around here somewhere a year or so ago. I am just strategizing the purchase of a death star which was out of stock on taxfree weekend here, and just thinking about what else to jusggle this month. Thanks

    The toy stores here in NZ tend to have all-inclusive 20-30% discounts, so that's also when I go crazy with Legos, especially with the large/exclusive/limited edition sets. Best deal was getting the Fire Brigade a few months back for NZD225.

    Here is a list of Excluded Items as at Dec 2013 (as sent to NELUG via email):

    10188 Death Star™
    10197 Fire Brigade
    10211 Grand Emporium
    10214 Tower Bridge
    10218 Pet Shop
    10221 Super Star Destroyer
    10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van
    10223 Kingdoms Joust
    10224 Town Hall
    10225 SW R2D2
    10226 Sopwith Camel
    10228 Haunted House
    10229 Winter Village Cottage
    10233 Horizon Express
    10937 Batman™: Arkham Asylum Breakout
    10232 Palace Cinema
    10240 Red Five X-Wing Starfighter™
    10237 The Tower of Orthanc
    10234 Sydney Opera House™
    10236 Ewok™ Village
    10235 Winter Village Market
    31313 MINDSTORMS 2013
    21050 Architecture Studio

    As stated above, it includes those that came out later and are Exclusive or Hard to Find. Thus, all modular are excluded, as well as most sets that we'd want!! Included in this exclusion are several Ideas sets:

    - The Research Institute
    - Ghostbusters Ecto-1
    - Exosuit

    However, some good news is that there are a few sets that cost more than $100 that are not on the list. For instance the new Cargo Train is not on the list.

    Hope that helps!

    @red237 - I suspect this is the list you mean!

    @red237, yes, thank you -- busy busy with plays (4 performances this last weekend, and back to rehearsal for the next show in November tonight!). And lots of Lego action too! Hope you're doing well too!

    Smaller "Hard to Find" labelled sets, like a Target or TRU exclusive in USA, would not be subject to this ban on discounts.
