They'll probably find they'll sell less at RRP, and have to discount more. Unless they are planning to start shifting product away from the UK to other parts of Europe.
people just expect prices to rise.
RRP isn't really much of a concern when not buying Lego from [email protected] or a Lego store - there have been amazing bargains through Argos/Tesco this year in the UK.
Vote with your wallets people - i'm no Apple fan, but there's even less chance of them getting my money now. Unless there's an amazing freebie to go with, i'll be limiting my RRP Lego spends also.
If I think that Lego pricss are getting a bit silly then i'll stop buying.
As mentioned before, things will still be discounted and the likes of Tesco and Argos will be banging sets out with great reductions and the old 3 for 2 so we can still get our fixes at a reasonable cost.
Maybe a 3 for 2 buddy scheme thread should be created then we can all team up and get the sets we all want when these offers start... Its all out bargain hunting warfare on a strategical level
Well apart from Minifigs.
Well Minifigs and special pieces / new moulds.
Actually Minifigs, special pieces / new moulds and Minidolls
I'll come in again.
Eventually I will get to the point that I have enough bricks that I won't need to buy new sets to build anything I want, apart from Minifigs, Minidolls, Special Pieces/new Moulds and new brick colours.....
Anyway I'm aware that going forward life in the UK is going to get expensive in general. But then I'm hoping that I won't be in the UK for ever but still in the EU - without moving house :) But I'll leave that there.
What people have said is the equally unremarkable "so long as the price is attractive enough I will continue to buy".
I susoect the poind dalling will impact the price of new Lego sets but not the current ones. I'm sure I did months I will still be able to pick up a Ferris wheel for the same price I can now.
However it it does make me worry that this is the 40th anniversary of Star Wars and so I am expecting a lot of big sets to be released this year which may end up costing me a fortune.
Oh my god the Lego prices are going up by 5% we are going to have to pay more. More I tell you for the Lego. Where will it end? Won't someone think of the children?
Damn you Farage for leading us out. When will the crimes end? We need this man up on war crimes. I was fine with the casual racism, fine with the homophobia but 5% is too much Nigel.
Quick guys we need to rally I've got the placards. Whose got the paint? No @CCC you can't write that it's offensive to Megabloks fans!
All together "What do we want? A return to the EU so that we don't have to pay 5% on our Lego sets. When do we want it? Now!"
I also don't remember reading about any letters stating that there would be a 7% reduction in RRPs when the exchange rate rose by 14% between November 2014 and July 2015.
Of course, over the years we all know there have been fluctuations in the relative RRP of products, this summer seeing some of the best value we've seen in many years. We cope.
