Just walked out of a shop which has the #21017 Imperial hotel at retail and am on the fence with buying it.
Really like the set, and I know it's discontinued and will only go up in price but it is an expenditure that hasn't been taken into consideration this month.
Anyone with any info regarding how bad this set is, to talk me out of buying it would be gratefully received at this point. :)
I just finished building it last night; bought it @ Barnes & Noble last week at MSRP.
It is (not) a boring build, it does (not) look horrible, and it (does not) looks awkward with the rest of the line. You should definitively (not) let this one pass... (Seriously, why are you still reading this and not buying #21017?)
I said don't ask!! Basically some trading with my wife :) the deal is struck, will be ordering tomorrow. Could go for smaller sets but wont b able to get a £160 set often.
i have money to spend.!
now what to buy.
Sorry - couldn't help it! :-) I'd agree with getting the larger set. Small ones tend to fit in with shopping for other things in my experience!
Took your advice as it's such a bad build and with a little bit of negotiation with the boss, am now the proud owner of #21017.
Congrats! Have fun sorting/building :-)
they are 6.99 each. that is £20.97 for 3.
there is no deal to be had on the 4th one i would end up paying full price for it.
well in my eyes i would end up paying full price.
There could be better deals later in the month.
Its The 27th for crying out loud. there is only 4 days of the Month left.
In the meantime, I pushed the button on the 4 new NEXO Knights Ultimate figures from Smyth's Toys.
Plus Elvendale really needs a mountain, and I'm feeling inspired by I build I saw at BrickFair New England...
- the Smyths offer
- the TRU voucher I just got in the post (£5 off a £30 spend)
- bundling a few things I want on [email protected] to trigger the fountain offer, even though it'll mean waiting longer to get the Lego.
The latter is looking like the most sensible and justifiable, but will common sense win out over instant gratification? I may have to compromise by picking up a minifig in TRU before hospital to tide me over...
Someone tell TLG to release some more OT sets quick!
what you are after are the star wars set's that are not out this month in the uk.
however that dont stop you from going to the usa to get them.
Would take a bit of time and would take your mind of no OT stuff to buy.
i have over 150 set's and room to display about 20% of it at this time. (even if only 10% right now is on display i need to stop procrastinating over sorting out my room.)
the point is i have to rotate what i have on display. true that not as easy to do with the big set's (like my #10218 pet shop MOC. i need to stop procrastinating over making that ones video) but there is fun in setting up a display. it is when you run out of space to store the sets that not on display you need to think hard.
So I must resist spending all my Lego money until closer to my June payday.
There might be some better deals in June?
I also know there will be a nice [email protected] freebie to buy in June. :)
Just purchased 10,000 parts off BL for my next project. I hate that I've learned how to see my BL bill from the past 5 years...
@Yodalicious what's with the numbers written on the 71014 bags? The series looks very hard to feel and I'm not sure what else they could be
I was like that as a kid, getting mostly ~$10 sets. Now I have several ~$30 and some ~$50. I'm considering Brick Bank ($170) but haven't gotten it. That may be the same dynamic on a larger scale.
Don't worry, you can get all sorts of slopes there. :P
Similar here. I got most of the sets I wanted within a couple months of coming out of my dark age. There are some big sets for which I'm waiting on deals. Only a few new sets have appealed to me.
*With two kids it is unfortunately more of an aspiration than a reality.
and the same as @Yodalicious :)
(I'm sure there's a better thread to ask this but I can't find it...)
I was moving some large very useful boxes with sets in them around looking for a specific set when I saw the instructions for Iron Man's Lab sitting at the top of one of the boxes. I never scratched that itch when I printed them and now I'm itching again . . . . . . .
I am suspecting it's a con
After the debacle of the supposed 20% off offer which never materialised even though I was promised a voucher to replace it by 2 different ebay employees nothing they do surprises me
wear more clothes to fit more lego in?
