    Volcano exploration base #60124 is back at $67. Great price for a great set that is otherwise overpriced at $120.

    On the subject of the UCS TIE, Amazon shipped mine with a label directly on the Lego box. No double box. UPS left it on my porch. Needless to say, the box was badly damaged. They gave me an additional discount on it but just beware that this can happen to you. I plan on building mine so the box condition wasn't too important but the fact that they left $200 exposed on my porch left me peeved. This was the first time Amazon ever did this. And yes, this was not from a 3rd party seller. 


    Walmart did the same to me with the second (and last) Pet Shop I ordered. Really annoying.

    I think it really depends on who is packing these larger sets. I ordered #10236 about 6 months ago by itself from Amazon. It came in a larger box and was beautifully wrapped in bubble wrap. It was easily the best packing job I had ever seen. But everyone knows there's people at work who just don't give a shit, and those are the ones who just throw the shipping label on the Lego box and ship it that way.

    The care Amazon takes in shipping anything has plummeted ... I have received many damaged items from Amazon because of poor shipping.  It is getting so that you have to order from them with caution.

    It's been that way for me for the past few years now.

    It's not just Amazon though. I can't remember the last thing I had shipped to me from anywhere that had adequate packaging material. I've come to simply expect a smashed corner or two. 
  • datkiddedatkidde Member Posts: 108
    Slapping a label directly on a Lego box and shipping as it is just unacceptable. From anyone. I buy to build so beat up boxes don't bug me unless I intend to give it away as a gift but so many things can go wrong shipping that way.

    That's weird, I wonder if it's specific shipping locations where that happens? I live in Utah, and most of my Lego shipments come from Las Vegas, I've never had any boxes show up dinged, though I've had a couple emails from Amazon asking me specifically how the packaging was for my Lego items, I've always wondered why that was.

    Also, it looks like #70916 Batwing ($89.99) and #70917 Ultimate Batmobile ($139.99) are both available from Amazon, although the Batmobile is $10 over RRP...
  • josekaleljosekalel Rio Grande Valley, TexasMember Posts: 680
    The Batwing looks awesome, can't wait for it to go on sale to get it.

    I think I am OD on Batman sets. May change my mind in the future when it goes on sale.
  • TyresOFlahertyTyresOFlaherty USAMember Posts: 340
    I hear you, @spepper, although I still think I have some momentum from buying everything else until now. Might just ask the wife for these for my birthday and see what happens :)
  • 77ncaachamps77ncaachamps Aspiring Time Traveler Stuck in the West (US)Member Posts: 2,439
    I understand as well @spepper. I'm just waiting for more than the obligatory 20% off for these sets.

    Target, Walmart, TRU, and even Barnes and Noble still have them out in fairly copious quantities.

    A Target/Amazon 30% will do it for me.

    Amazon seems to be charging $23 for the new battle packs, not 3rd party seller, just a weird markup
  • dspigeldspigel Seoul, KoreaMember Posts: 427
    I passed on them due to the crazy markup. They'll be on sale at some point.

    If it's coming direct from Lego, it ships from Mississippi to get to me. I ordered the Snowspeeder for the double VIP points and it unfortunately got here with a slightly smashed corner. My last order was of some smaller stuff, and the items were basically free to slide around the box. 

    As for Amazon, there's really not much consistency there. When I ordered the UCS TIE Fighter it came from a shipping company I had never heard of, not sure if they did the packing or not but the box was pretty banged up. Although the Pokemon Sun and Moon Collector's Guide was adequately packaged which I think is the last thing I received from Amazon (that wasn't a box full of K-Cups for my fiance). Prior to that, the actual Sun and Moon games were simply stuffed in a padded envelope with no other packing material, but thankfully they weren't damaged either. A whole bunch of items I ordered before and after the TIE Fighter though came in fairly weak packaging where stuff was free to just tumble around the box. 
  • dspigeldspigel Seoul, KoreaMember Posts: 427
    My most recent order was the Goonies dimensions pack. It arrived only in a padded envelope. So needless to say it was crushed along the way.
  • MynattMynatt OH/NYMember Posts: 566
    I guess I'm getting the reverse of everyone. I ordered a UCS tie from the amazon warehouse with prior knowledge that the box would be in poor condition. When the package arrived the outside brown box was in perfect condition. Thank goodness too, wouldn't want my crushed and beat up UCS Tie Fighter box to be damaged in any way. Really appreciate the consideration to put some bubble wrap in to protect the shipment.

    #60132 Service Station is currently 29% off on Amazon (it's been hovering at 23% for a while now). Still feels too pricey though... I may wait with fingers crossed for a steeper discount. I inexplicably like this set, even though I'm not normally much of a vehicle person.
  • BuriedinBricksBuriedinBricks USAMember Posts: 1,366
    @lentil I think it's a great looking set. I also think it's greatly overpriced. I doubt anything over $50 would get me to pull the trigger on an order.

    Man.. I just do not know if I can pull the trigger on #60124. There just is nothing I like about the set.

    ^Yeah...I'm in the same boat. Forty-four percent off is great, but it would be nice to like the set too. The volcano isn't too bad, but that's about it.
  • teal93mr2teal93mr2 USAMember Posts: 937
    ^^Agreed.  It's one of those sets that I wish I could like but just don't.  Too bad it was a vehicle and not an actual base.

    I guess if you ended up missing out on any of the sales on the Star Wars buildable figures over at Walmart, Amazon has quite a few of them 50% off.
    Battle on Takodana: $34 (43%)
    Encounter on Jakku: $36 (40%)

    The Ferry is also 50% off.

    Just for reference: I picked up Takodana for $30 at WM. $34 is very decent.

    I know how this feels, at least during the school year since I am a teacher. Basically between 8 and 4, I don't do anything unrelated to the classroom. That has led to some frustrating moments when people post about a fantastic deal at 10 AM and by the time I am able to look into it, it has passed.
