    Making light of 79 deaths and 140 injured to get a few likes = not funny. Grow up!!!

    I have to agree with Legopants. I know not everyone will agree and will say we're being oversensitive but personally I don't think it's cool to use footage of a real life tragedy just to make a flippant comment on the Internet. 
    (I believe the video is of the horrific train crash that happened in Spain a few years ago).

    ^^ at Tyres...i'm not going to take the moral highground..i don't need to..a deaf,dumb and blind man could see that you weren't making light of what happened that day...seems to me a wee bit of knicker untwisting required...

    I find it ironic that @TyresOFlaherty pointed out that I am a thread derailer (which I am, of course) , but ruffled some feathers, which I am notorious for. 

    Anyhoo, I am overly disgusted with myself for spending that much on my Battle Pods. Oh well :)

    That irony wasn't lost on me either, @Pitfall69. :)

    I also can't believe I spent that much on my Battle Pod, either... but I'm glad I did!

    Listen guys, would you have rather overpaid for an expensive Lego set? Let's say you paid full retail for a UCS B-Wing and then they went on sale for 50% off. Paying $10-15 more for a Battle Pod isn't that bad if you think about it.

    It helps if your other half is interested in something equally frivolous. Every so often I regret having a shared bank account (for more reasons than just the obvious one), but in general I think openness and inclusion is the way to go. YMMV however!


    I can confirm this! Imagine my joy on holiday in the Netherlands when I discovered a basket of Eric de Noorman comics from the 50s outside a secondhand bookshop at €5 a pop! My partner was demurring over which ones to get and I went, "Look, later this year *I* am getting the Fisherman's Hut. You just saw copies of these in a museum the other day! You are on holiday! BUY THEM ALL!!" 

    It was €120 well spent, in more ways than one...

    As a whole, I feel like the "lust" behind all the Batman Movie sets has declined since February.  I mean, I get it obviously, but I remember I was incredibly excited about these sets.  Still am don't get me wrong, but the hype has definitely deflated.

    ^ I think part of the reason is because they're so readily available. Well, not the Battle Pods necessarily, but I walk into the Walmarts in my area and the shelves are packed. I think I mentioned it on here already, but I'm amazed at the shear number of the $20 and under sets they carry. I've never seen more than maybe 10 of a specific set on the shelves in any store in my area. Some of the Walmarts still have 25+ of some of the TLBM sets on shelves.

    I remember there being a similar number of sets and stock available of the Lego Movie theme.  No licensing fees - so it is all profit.

    Keep in mind that even if licensing fees didn't apply for The Lego Movie, they DEFINITELY would for The Lego Batman Movie, considering every DC comics character in the movie and the sets is licensed from Warner Bros.

    That said, those characters might presumably all be covered by the ongoing DC Super Heroes license (despite the sets not necessarily being branded as a part of that same theme).

    I think you also have to account for Lego's licensing fees that DC has to pay for the privilege to have their product in the Lego medium.

    Licensing agreements are very specific contracts written by exacting attorneys that are tasked with reserving as many rights as possible for potential future profit centers.  Only poorly written agreements allow for products to get made that are not specifically delineated in an agreement.

    (Sometimes we forget that there can be just as much value the 'other' way.  Lego could have passed on a Batman movie and just focused on their own themes.)

    Thus, why there are no Fantastic Four toys.  And probably why there are no Lego.

    @CM4S I recently paid £22.50 for my Battle Pod. Unfortunately, I'm kinda reluctant to open it unless a get a second one! But I do feel better with one in hand. :)

    Traded for mine, but still would like a second, and hope still that these appear somewhere else in the US as part of a TLBM movie release promo or something
  • floridabrickfloridabrick Central FLMember Posts: 158
    I unexpectedly found myself within 10 minutes of LL FL yesterday.  Going in with low expectations, sure enough, promos for Star Wars Days were put away and unavailable until the weekend.  But instead - with a $30 purchase at the Studio Store, they were giving out Battle Pods!  Either they're just trying to get rid of them (would be very surprising), or this was someone's decision to bridge the gap between these 2 Star Wars Days weekends.  Meaning I would expect them to continue the promo until at least Friday. 

    I know, unless you're local this news is useless and probably annoying.
  • LegoboyLegoboy 100km furtherMember Posts: 8,837
    When I was in there they had hundreds in front of me and I suspect they had hundreds if not thousands more in the stock room behind.  I'm not sure how hard they'd be trying to give them away though as like I said before, they didn't do me any favours despite offering to spend a lot of money on larger sets.

    After a few weeks of very few of these listed on eBay UK at a reasonable price, all of a sudden there's been quite a few listed this weekend at around £16. 

    Any reason for this 'flash sale' (their words)?

    Ive just bought one so you can guarantee toysrus will be giving them away for free next week with the latest sets' release.

    Guessing that LEGOland Discovery Centers are promo'ing them now, maybe?

    Good spot I was looking a few days ago and thought they were starting to go up in price again.
  • ateagueateague EnglandMember Posts: 171
    I thought the same thing, I got one for £15 which I may happy with even if they do come out as a freebie soon. Got all the Batman Movie variants now!! Yippeee

    My feelings too -  it's that balance price point: it's a must have so don't want to miss it  but I won't be too annoyed if it becomes a freebie now.

    Has anyone seen these in UK Toys R Us stores? I believe I saw a post online saying they had them for £7.99? I called up two stores but neither had them yet.

    So we have gone from should I buy one for £40 to should I buy one for £6.99 or wait for it to be free. A lesson learnt here, for me that's lesson was with #5002145

    If they show up here in the states for $10 or less I will have to get a couple, as my grandson will love that clamshell container. Otherwise I'll just wait til I stumble across a used one.

    Well I just got one from ebay for £16 this morning which I was quite happy with and Just to be on safe side. But If they'll be available at Toys are Us I may get some spares 
  • LuLegoLuLego UKMember Posts: 1,010

    @roxio were they already in Northampton, as that's my closest store, or if not did they say when they'd have them ?

    I rang Mummy and Daddy this morning to ask whether they'd be popping into Northampton at all (about 10 miles away) and whether they could check the Battle Pod situation at TrU.
    They rang me back a few moments ago. They'd been into Northampton - the store does indeed have the Battle Pods in stock and there are plenty of them! £6.99 each. They got me 7 :-))
