I usually avoid Maxi Toys like the plague, but might pop into one of the Luxembourg ones later today...
Fortrex seems available in all Maxi Toys stores, including the Evere one, so if you make a trip there over lunch it's unlikely it will be wasted ;)
Both sets seem to have a different price in store than online.
@stlux None of those Nexo 2017 sets on the site are available for pickup either. All 2017 sets on the webshop lack pictures as well. Your remark about usually avoiding them made me laugh, I visited their stores only a couple of times but wasn't terribly impressed either. Even though the prospect of getting my hands on a Nexo wave 3 set or a SW 2017 set with 15% discount is tempting, I'm not risking ordering any of these. Quite possibly these are just placeholders and the sets will only be delivered after Dec 20th.
I had never been in Maxi Toys before, was happy to see they have about as much Lego as Fun does, but it's all at RRP, so I doubt it'll be there much barring big promotions like this one. Was kind of hoping they'd have some leftover old CMFs in stock, but alas.
My local Maxi Toys actually did have #75172 Y-wing and the #5164 Rebel Trooper battle pack when I visited today, but 15% off RRP was not enticing enough for me to buy them already. Would have jumped on Yoda's Starfighter in a heartbeat though. Or the A-wing, just to make people jealous with a picture of Lando ;)
So if you order these 2017 sets online, I'm fairly confident they'll actually ship them.
And now for someting entirely different: Today's the last day Amazon.de has an extra 10 EUR off on any purchase of 40 EUR to celebrate the availability of their site in Dutch. Discount only valid when the shipping adress is in NL or BE and for items sold by Amazon but for almost the entire range, not only LEGO. Use the WELKOM code when checking out to get the discount.
Kinda back on topic (ignoring their atrocious RRP prices): Maxi Toys now has pictures of their 2017 Star Wars/Friends/Nexo Knights sets. Still -15% on Star Wars sets until the end of the week for anybody who is very impatient :)
Tempted by the #75149 Resistance X-wing Fighter for EUR 56.50, the #75153 AT-ST Walker for EUR 30 or #75156 Krennic's Imperial Shuttle for EUR 62.
For new customers: you also get EUR 10 off when spending more than EUR 60.
TRU FR delivers to both Belgium and Luxembourg, but not Netherlands.
TRU NL have 20% Star Wars when spending EUR 70 or more. Valid until Dec 21.
Delivery to Belgium also available, but not Luxembourg.
The Amazon.de 10 euro off promo has indeed been prolonged. To the 31st of December to be specific.
I managed My niece managed to grab a #60130 City Prison Island for 41,19€ (51,19€ lightning deal - 10€ euro WELKOM10 discount) on the 12th. Delivered yesterday, well-packaged as usual when delivered by Amazon.de/fr. Xmas present for the boys - they've both been drooling over the set printed on the back of the City Christmas calendar for a few weeks now...
While we're at it: Supra Bazar has the mid-range of the barely released Nexo Wave 3 at 20% off at the moment:
#70350 Three Brothers € 27.98 (€ 34.98 RRP); #70348 Lance's twin jouster and #70349 Ruina's lock and Roller for 15,98€ each.
Already have #70348 but couldn't resist buying #70349 for the boys.
In case you're wondering: Supra Bazar is a classic Flemish hardware/kitchenware/gardening/etc baanwinkel your grandparents used to shop at.
However, it does recognize it but doesn't want to give it to me (I even changed my language to dutch in case it was important)
Er is iets misgegaan
De ingevoerde promotiecode kan niet op je aankoop worden toegepast.
I told him not to buy this set yet as there will be better deals to be had in the future!
But it's not TLG's fault, it's because of the laws in Belgium 'sperperiode' - however, Amazon etc has deals on all the time so I really don't understand why TLG shouldn't be allowed either. Maybe because the internet-address is actually 'be'?
I did not complain about there being no sales for Belgium. LEGO has every right to set their prices differently per country as they can choose whether to give discounts for a particular country. That does not mean it doesn't have an impact on how I perceive the company though.
As for the Amazon sales - a significant number of good deals gave a 'This item does not ship to Belgium'-message recently, both on Amazon.co.uk and .de. Annoying, but perfectly legal.
As a European consumer, we do have the right to physically go to one market/country buy the goods in countries/markets for personal use and take them to another country without VAT or duty implications. Something we both seem to do :D
Also, Fun.be has a few #70312 Lance's Mecha Horse's left at 9,99 EUR (50% off)
Meanwhile, Amazon.fr still has #70323 Jestro's Volcanic Lair available for 64,99 EUR (50% off RRP as well).
These deep discounts do make me wonder about size of Nexo stock out there in retail.
I am trying to buy a Lego set sold by Amazon, but Amazon won't fulfil the order.
What the hell?!? Did something change?
I am not a Prime member, I never have been, and that never mattered. I could just order Lego from Amazon.uk, now it won't. Yet on the help & customer service page concerning international delivery rates & times I cannot find anything that indicates delivery to NL is barred! On the contrary, it stipulates that it is no problem.
Does anyone know what might have changed or is going on?!
Regarding the Dr. Who set I just called Lego [email protected] since on the website it says it is 'out of stock' not 'sold out', however I was not able to order it over the phone because apparently it now is really sold out. €32,50 was such a nice price for that set, which btw looks like a nice set too, even if you are not a Dr. Who fan. Bummer! Ooh well, such is life, too late. Next time better luck.
(However not being able to order from Amazon really both baffles as well as annoys me tremendously.)
However what seems to happen since a couple of months is that when they do very deep discounts, they limit it to UK only. My guess is they do this in order to limit their losses on those promotions.
But I agree: extremely annoying. I already shop a lot less on Amazon UK since they did away with free delivery to Luxembourg a couple of years, and this new limit will reduce my shopping with them even further.
Yeah I don't buy often from Amazon UK either, ever since they stopped doing free shipping to NL.
I just contacted CS via their website, and a staff member in Dublin called me back. She would contact her manager, fill out some form, and get back to me tomorrow, or Wednesday, as she didn't know either why Amazon would/could not t ship orders to my address in NL. Wonder what good that does if that Lego set, and a book I wanted to order will either be sold out tomorrow, or will be much more expensive, and thus no longer a good bargain.
I don't get their business model at all! All they do every year is make losses if I am correct, I believe they have been in the red now multiple years in a row.
Over the past 2 years there has been a slightly larger focus on profitability, but they are not chasing quarterly profits for the sake of it.
(I don't own any AMZN shares as far as I'm aware)
You are right, what I wrote was nonsense! Got the facts wrong, and was confusing news and info on financial annual/quarterly report from some other company.
In case it wasn't obvious I do not have any AMZN shares either. ;-)
(not there aren't any people who do in fact have shares of certain companies, or/and other financial/investment products, but forget to keep track of what happens on the stock market) => (just like there are people who do not keep track of which Lego sets they already own, and buy them again thinking they just bought something new they did not yet have) ;-P (though the latter is a lot less risky!)
The Amazon UK "This item does not ship..." thing hast started to occur on the Amazon.de site as well. They don't ship #70351 to Belgium for instance. I think it's a limit imposed by suppliers and or distributors rather than a cost measure taken by Amazon itself personally.
It's a very annoying thing indeed. I somehow managed to get one of those 20 GBP Turbo Tanks on UK last week only to find out it did not ship to Belgium. No message was displayed on the product page.
Found what I was after (and more!) for myself but that's not for this thread - no deals in the strict sense of the word.
Also wanted to mention Maxi Toys has 50% off on the second set when buying two Nexo Knights sets - discount applied to the cheapest of the two. Not that good of a deal considering the deep discounts on Nexo sets to be had elsewhere except for the wave 3 sets. Most of those are sold out in the meantime; only interesting if you're after two Newo battle suits for instance. Offer valid until 29/1. I ordered the last 2 #70351's.
They also had at least #60147 #60107 and #60121 available. One store also had #31033 I believe.
@snowhitie where are you from? Near Leuven as well?
I've read the promo is in Lanaken as well, didn't check Tienen, Haacht has nothing.
If you're after anything specific in the above sets, let me know and I'll try to recall where I saw them. Leuven/Lombaerdenstraat has 7.99 the others 9.99.
I wonder why Leuven central is lower than their Leuven satellite stores, competition must have a presence in the city I guess... But then that would be Bart Smit. Price matching Dreamland would be weird as Dreamland is a Colruyt store. :)
