    Finally placed my 2x VIP order (didn't help that [email protected] ran out of stock of some sets I wanted and I had to pick out other ones)
    Kid gifts - #10570 (and #30321)
    Wedding present - #40165
    Self - #41107 (for Pop Star collection), #850618 Fire Accessory Set and #60077 (great deal for 4 minifigures and assorted parts), #70331 (to get started with Nexo Knights), #30422

    Well, the Pet Shop I had managed to spot showing as available on [email protected] and order was just canceled by them. Noticed an email from this morning saying demand exceeded expectations. Grrrrr.

    Luckily, Amazon showed it in stock for MSRP, so I just tried that route. No double VIP points though, sigh. Now I just hope that Amazon does a better job of keeping their order system and their warehouse in sync than TLG apparently does!

    I have never had Amazon cancel an order that I was successful in placing due to inventory issues. Always a first time for everything, but to say that Amazon has a better handle on every aspect of ecommerce and inventory management than LEGO is in my opinion a fair assessment. Honestly, LEGO should just pay Amazon to run SAH and we would all be better for it.

    Call LEGO and complain. They will make it worth your while- even TRU is nice enough to give you a gift card when they do that.

    I wasn't in the market for Pet Shop, but I saw it as unavailable all the times I stumbled across the listing.

    I'm torn between 2 x #10233 or one #10228.

    my self if i was in your place and had to pick, then i would pick Haunted House.

    Definitely Haunted House but thats partly dictated by my circumstances of limited space.

  • JudgeChuckJudgeChuck UKMember Posts: 1,089
    @tecjam, given that they're completely different types of set, only you can answer this. Personally, I would pick #10228 Haunted House, but that's because it appeals to me more than a couple of trains.

    eBay purchase #79015: Witch-King Battle turned up today, so that gives me another couple of the main characters. I think that I'll just add #79005: The Wizard Battle for Saruman and then decide on whether I really need #9471: Uruk-Hai Army and #9474: The Battle Of Helm's Deep...

    Think of it this way - by being frugal in general, one can somewhat afford to spend a lot on LEGO.

    @Don How did your order from Amazon go? Has it shipped yet? 
  • flordflord CanadaMember Posts: 665
    I may have gone a little overboard with Double VIP points.



    I still have 2 more orders coming. And what am I supposed to do with all the Ninjago guys?

    The plan was to get #75827 and #76052 on Double VIP points. Got those and #70751 is on the mail (not into Ninjago but that temple looks awesome and a fun build).

    Then got #10211 on Brick Classifieds.

    Found out about the TRU Batmobile promo and got #75136 and #75127.

    I was not interested in the City theme, but got into trains earlier this year. That drove my attention to some of the vehicles and ended up buying #$60118 and #60119 on last week's TRU 20% sale and ATV Patrol promo.

    20 minutes ago ordered #60026 on eBay.

    *sigh* Cup Noodles dinner the past few days and probably for many days to come.

    The article on the homepage about Castles has cost me some money! I ended up buying the Trolls mountain fortress #7097 from Bricklink. I love these flashback articles but they are dangerous if you fall in love with a set you've missed out on. Still looking at some of the other fantasy castle stuff but will hold off for now! [Must resist...!]

    Just bought Pirates of the Caribbean #4194 for what I think is a reasonable price. Now just wondering whether to spring for the Ghostbusters Firehouse before double points ends.

    so this is the last set of stuff i will be buying on Double VIP points.

    i have placed a order for the following items.

    #10220 : Volkswagen T1 Camper Van
    #10242 : MINI Cooper
    #10243 : Parisian Restaurant
    #75087 : Anakin’s Custom Jedi Starfighter™ 

    there was, as there always is with me. a last minute change of plan's.
    i lost a little interest in #70732 : City of Stiix. and that has been pushed back. if interest comes back it may come forward again, if not who knows if i will ever get it.
    also decided to save time and spend some of my VIP points i have now.
    as i spent the Same level of Cash as i would have spent with or with out the use of VIP points, i not losing any points i would have got. 
    as i only had about £263 to spend today. the outright max points i could have got was 526 points. no if's, no but's, no maybe's, that was it. that what i had to work with,
    so the only way i was going to be getting #10243: Parisian Restaurant today was with VIP Points to help. no if's, no but's, no maybe's.

    and to me the VW Camper Van and Mini Cooper was a package deal. i could not get one with out the other.
    and with the age of the VW, it was right at the top of my to buy list.

    i toyed with that list for hours today trying to work out the best set's to get. Vs what set's i wish to have, Vs what are the odd's of that set being around later, Vs what are the odd's of a retailer selling that set at a lower price, Vs Do retailers have that set on there webpage to be sold at this time.

    Anakin’s Custom Jedi Starfighter in the uk is only sold by Argos. and the best deal i know Argos do is the 3 for 2 offer. (and the next time that offer is plan for is unknown.)
    and even if it did start in 2 weeks time, Argos don't have 3 sets at £39.99 i wish to have so getting it from lego is just a better deal.
    the VW is just to old to toy with, about "can i find it for less."
    as i said the mini is a auto buy for me with the VW. to own one with out the other is as bad a bad can be.
    Parisian Restaurant is only sold online at RRP by Lego at this time.

    even so. i flipped back and forth on Parisian Restaurant for well over 30 minutes.

    Oh and 1 more dam Chicken Suit Guy to add to my growing stock of them. (i own 3 right now) this will make 4.
    what the dam in hell am i going to do with 4 of them?
    i not found a use for 1 of him, let alone FOUR!

    I've got a Joust.  In fact I had a second one at some point with grand ideas to combine it as the box suggests, but I needed to sell it to finance other sets.

    It really is a fantastic model, isn't it? By far the "scariest" Castle set I've seen.

    I remember seeing it some time ago and i thought about getting it but your article just made me want it more. It looks brilliant.  I'm a sucker for castle sets!

    @oldtodd33 ; It went well, thanks. Amazon delivered it as promised! So even though I didn't get the VIP points, I'm happy that I didn't miss it at MSRP and have to agonize over whether or not to pay the reseller premium!  :-)

    Had a good couple of days, picked up a copy of #76039 from Waterstones, and over the course of three days picked up 2 large pab cups, #40202 , #40153 , #70313 , 4 x #5004468 , #30371 (from the calender voucher), and the Episode 2,3 & 4 Star Wars posters.
    The jewel in the crown though was a boxless, but complete (long story) #75059 for 10% off (due to the no box situation) and the obligatory double VIP points as well. As I don't keep boxes due to space constraints, am chuffed to bits with this.

    I almost bought something today, but didn't.  Then almost did again, but couldn't decide and then I forgot what I was supposed to be doing, so went for a cup of tea.  

    Then realised that none of this matters and no one will care, but thought I should post it anyway.

    To summarise, I should probably write a blog, rather than treating this forum as my mental dumping ground...

    Recently got #60119 Car Ferry, the musical Mixels trio of Trumpsy, Tapsy and Jamzy, and #41075 Treetop Hideaway for my girls. I'm anticipating getting some elves dragons sets when they're on special, and hoping for a big discount on #41073 Naida's Ship as our local shop still has a massive over-supply and occassionally does up to 40% discounts in such circumstances (which is what prompted me to impulse-buy #70413 Brick Bounty in January.)

    Made my first foray into modulars today.  Picked up Pet Shop and a Parisian Restaurant.  Got PR with a "damaged" box at the Lego shop.  I say "damaged" because the box is in fine condition.  Got double VIP and 500 bonus points!

    Dam #75095 box is BIG!.
    and 
    #10243 box is smaller then i would have guessed it to be.
    i image it as the same Size as #10218 and #10232.
    is it deeper? no looking at it looks the same depth as the other 2.
    can not see how deep #75060 is.

    3! that is Three Pet shops and Three Palace Cinemas.
    not even i am daft enough to try and buy 15 of them let alone 15 of each.
    come off it man that would be £3,600. i don't have that type of cash.
    if i did i not be buying 15 of the same model. i be buying over half of the Lego set's sold on [email protected] starting with the highest costing and going down till i ran out of cash.

    saying that. just think of the Size of a 15 x Palace Cinemas MOC! :)

    No, I meant that what box sizes are chosen, the case pack or sets and the shipping volumes are interesting to me.
