    Anyone think it'll just be a big bag of parts? No box? :P

    (It's a Ferris Wheel.  And yes, possibly by October 1st, we can pull that off.  I suppose that'll make me feel better.)

    For those who won, did you purchase the Ucs tumbler using your vip account
  • ArkadeusArkadeus San Francisco Member Posts: 6
    I think vip members with the tumbler in their account were given a higher chance at winning. All I did was put 12 email entries and I won. I did however purchase the tumbler back in August 
  • Sethro3Sethro3 United StatesMember Posts: 951
    I don't think it has any correlation to Tumbler purchase. It is simply a draw from a hat so to speak. I also purchased a Tumbler and 27 email entries during the promo period and I did not win. So I don't think it can be tracked down to that, otherwise Tumbler sales would have been through the roof that month. (maybe they were anyway, I don't know).

    People who own Tumblers are FAR more likely to make multiple submissions than those that do not.

    I doubt people buying Duplo are going to repeatedly enter the contest.

    True, but it sounded like people who bought Tumblers were given higher chances of winning. You could buy a DC super hero keychain and have the same entry as someone who bought a tumbler. That's all I was saying. But I agree, people who aren't into Batman won't enter the contest multiple times.

    ^ lets see $5 Keychain or a send a free email in everyday to get a 1 in 750 set that I can sell on ebay for $1000 to support my lego habit. Im sure there are more than a few resellers that jumped on that.

    For the record I bought #76022 Black Manta Deep Sea Strike on day one. I also sent in emails everyday only missed 2 or 3 times. 

    So yes I bought a stupid Aquaman set to get a cool Batman set.

    How much will the bat pod sell for on eBay? Not just listing a price and having no one buy it, but I'm talking about how much a person is willing to spend. Mr Gold was sold for $1k about two times I think.

    Oh, yep. I was wrong. It's got a box. Neat!

    My guess would be more. Less Batpods than Mr. Gold, and I would guess there are more Batman collectors than minifigure collectors that need to have everyone.

    I would actually doubt that the Batpod would go for more, at least not initially. Once the instructions are made public (as the parts list already has been), dedicated Lego fans will be able to easily assemble one of their own. Compare that to Mr. Gold, who is much harder to fake on a budget. I imagine even non-AFOL Batman fans would sooner look up how to build their own Batpod than spend a great deal more than the cost of even the Tumbler itself just to get an "authentic" one that will lose value if it is ever opened.

    That said, like all exclusive Lego sets, I would expect the value of a sealed Batpod to accumulate over time. It could potentially surpass the prices for Mr. Gold some time ten or more years from now, but I don't expect the initial demand alone to push it to that limit.

    I suppose we should have expected something more slick than the TRU exclusive give-aways...

    So are all the parts in other sets then? What are the hard to find ones? Thanks for the help.

    I have the instructions downloaded, now I just need to order the parts starting with the tyres. I'm guessing it will cost £20 for the pair of tyres and £15-£20 for the rest of the parts. Has anyone checked if any elements are exclusive? After I build it then it can sit next to my Tumbler :)
  • Gooker1Gooker1 Member Posts: 599
    Fbtb just pointed out the hubs on the tumbler are black while the hubs in the batpod are grey.  So for movie sake, order the black hubs!

  • EddieDoesntMindEddieDoesntMind Member Posts: 328
    Uh guys, it seems that the set uses light gray hubs, while the Tumbler has black ones.
  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 15,139
    Where can I get me some color-changing hubs?

    It doesn't look like too many hard to find pieces. That's a relief. Just a few here and there. Now I need to get to ordering with all of these projects.

    People are bricklinking hard tonight, I had 3 pairs of Tumbler tires for several months, they all sold in the last 2-3h along with other BatPod parts...
  • DrmnezDrmnez USA, Planet earth Member Posts: 855
    ^^wow that sellers insane. Moreover, if someone buys that anywhere near that price they are insane. Also, I think imma open mine because lets face it, I wont sell it

    He is insane, but if it sells for that, look out. The sky is the limit.
  • BennyBenny Carlisle, EnglandMember Posts: 28
    Sold for $999

    It's also the first one, and similar to all things limited, the price will go down once the "crazies" have made their purchases.
    SumoLego
  • It could also be someone trying to drive up the price with a fake sale. I have seen that in other communities with collectables I was a part of.

    I partially agree with you, as the set prices "should" go down as sellers want to make that quick easy buck and that will be our best chance to buy one cheap, but, this will probably stay around the grand mark after a few months to a year.  IMHO at least :)
  • jaitheartistjaitheartist Member Posts: 30
    Interesting. Cool to see somebody open it up right away and share the info. I've been very curious to see what it would do on eBay, as I've certainly considered selling it myself. If it's going for $1000 though I might just hang onto it for awhile. 
  • playwellplaywell UKMember Posts: 2,263
    Can someone tell me why a batpod that you can bricklink is so much, I thought I was crazy for buying a Shadow Leonardo for £100 but you cant make that from parts you have already. 
  • gandalfthebrickgandalfthebrick Member Posts: 40
    how can i get a set off tires directly from lego? and how much do they cost for a set of 2?
  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 15,139

    It's not in the usual Pick-a-Brick, it's in the 'special' section.

    https://service.lego.com/en-us/replacementparts#WhatProduct

    Just pop in the set number and scroll down.  I found the element number from the Tumbler instruction manual doesn't work.
    Allow myself to quote... myself.

    The wide tires should still be available.  Two with rims run about $25.00.

    Just for complete clarification, you choose the box on the RIGHT, and not the pick-a-brick on the left.


  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,825
    Well all of my parts are ordered.  Sit back and wait.  Or maybe I could be tempted with the Tumbler  :)

    4623002 - Hero Factory Shield piece is hard to find, only like 5 left on all of bricklink (set requires 6)
  • addemlitaddemlit CaliforniaMember Posts: 118
    The tires are out of stock on the Bricks and Pieces site. 

    Is is there any easy way to part out the set into bricklink?

    It is a piece you can get from [email protected] special pieces though.

    LEGO cancelled my August 18 order for this piece.




    I notified Customer Service about the piece still showing in Bricks & Pieces.  I also mentioned that LEGO will most likely receive more orders for the piece from VIP members who did not win a Bat-Pod.


  • gandalfthebrickgandalfthebrick Member Posts: 40
    Definitely seems like the tyres are hard to come by on-line, does anyone have a pair they're willing to sell?

    Because you have people that want bragging rights to say they could afford such an outrageous price, then there are die hard collectors that must have this set complete with box and instruction book.

    BL has an Inventory list, so yeah, should be. Plus I believe there are applications that can scan BL for the parts you need at the cheapest cost, if I recall correctly.
    As for the parts being unavailable at LEGO at this time. Call CS and ask when they will be back in stock as they usually have that info if they can be bought, but just are temp out of stock.
    It is possible some guy on BL bought as many as he could to sell to folks wanting to BL a Bat-pod. It is also possible they did not have many in stock to purchase as they are rather large and pricey, but the demand should make LEGO make more, well as long as the Tumbler (or any other set using those parts) is still in production.

    I hate listings like that. You can't use the "only 750 were created" label when listing a bricklinked version.

    I sincerely hope that someone isn't that stupid.  It's very misleading, but of course they put the "Box and Instructions NOT included" in the listing.  I should offer $20 and give them a piece of my mind lol.
