    Just saw this on Reddit and it's definitely ruined my plan to eventually get all the sets and figures from the Lego Batman Movie:

    There are no Toys R Us shops in Ireland and I just know the 4 figures will be expensive to get on Bricklink or elsewhere.

    I want, nay need the Batman in a money suit...and the bunny suit!
    It says 2 of 4, meaning they will have three more? I can't wait, hopefully most of them are Batman variants!

    I doubt the rest will be Batman themed. Maybe one will be a Ninjago fig pack?

    Interesting. Anyone know if such things are usually available at TRU FR/DE/NL too?

    This one was available earlier today on the TRU DE website, so: yes ;)

    dang. I am not completing all the batsuits but do I need this to keep my wizards collection complete? Will have to think on this one.

    This was first thought to my mind, could be all batman but either 2 batman & 2 Ninjago or 1 batman, 1 Ninjago, 1 City and 1 friends seems more likely to me. 
    Given the amount of possible Batman minifigures possible from TLBM it could all be Batman, to be honest I hope I don't want all 4, never been interested in previous Bricktober stuff and my LEGO budget is about to drop to near zero as it is!

    So much more excited for four new Bat suits than for the Millennium Falcon :-) 
    And they're a fraction of the cost too!

    Cool, thanks! When I looked it wasn't there (anymore). I like these, and of course if it's 1/4 I'll need all 4 ... :O

    I received email confirming Mega Falcon. I hope no one had any embarrassing situations like wetting their britches or fainting from such a super awesome reveal.

    PS.

    Lamborghini Diablo:



    Basically, I found this video recently:


    So, I went and ordered parts that I needed. That order came today, and I quickly got to work. This was the end result. Well, actually I used the light bluish gray wheels first, then I decided to use the black wheels for this. I wish those black wheels were easier to obtain so I could have several vehicles use them.

    I'm planning on a full semester of creating a fun series following my mini figures and mystery (possibly murder!) at the prestigious Winterfield Academy. Wish us luck! :)

    That looks like fun @snowhitie I was bought Crazy action contraptions (also by Klutz) for Christmas, we had lots of fun building the machines from that as well.

    Last nights status....sat on the lounge floor with Mrs Speedman and the continuing sort through of the FB LEGO haul, the Bionicle parts are looking to net me at least £10 on eBay, which makes the haul a freebie! We spent the evening digging through to try and find the Knight Bus #4866 Looks to be about 70% there including several purple window frames and the minifigures. Found an eBay lot for some spares then its Bricklink time for the rest.

    This morning I'm rebuilding #3221 so its actually fits in my LEGO street and is hopefully eligible for this months building competition too.

    Built my 2 Lego House Fish, cool builds. Thinking of getting the Lego House logo printed on the aquarium though.

    Other than that, pretty chuffed that my TLNM CMF from [email protected] (to get another pod) turned out to be N-POP Girl. Hurray!

    Hmmm Lego status for today (and including the rest of the year)  As we are preparing to emigrate to NZ, I am forbidden from sourcing and/or buying any more Lego until further notice. The Saturn V must stay in its unopened box (had it since June) as must every other set that has been purchased since our packing start.  I now have a whole pallet worth of really useful boxes packed full to the brim standing about 8ft waiting to be assessed for container insurance.  Once we go, I won't see them again for another 3 months :(

    Most of the way through building the 'extra' Millennium Falcon #4504.

    I did not keep very good notes when building the first one.  Many key missing pieces!  (But I have two extra cockpits and the blue engine tube thingy.)

    Disturbed...possibly traumatised.

    When looking for a set my brother had when he was really young, I found #2585.

    Why is there a naked, mustachioed man with a chest tattoo, gloves and a hat? Why is he kidnapping this shocked looking "cool kid", as the description dubs him?
    Yikes. That's freaky.

    I'm seeing sets that have just been released being discounted 30% and more, wondering if it's because lego releases way too many sets?

    No wonder Lego has so many police sets. Everyone is up to no good! They need all those police officers!

    Received a nice Amazon shipment again, packed in a book carton, fully smashed LEGO box as a result. Luckily I was going to the post office anyway today, so it's going right back in their own packaging. Not that I have high hopes for the next one, but I'll keep doing that until I get an actual box with LEGO instead of 2 sheets of paper around some bricks.

    My Saturn V is now "in the warehouse!" :D 

    Tonight we each built one of those little Nexo Knights catapult sets. VERY strong catapult. I want to have a go at combining them into one big one...

    Now at war with Amazon because of course my replacement LEGO order arrived in the same box the original came in, so it's smashed. Received another part of that order separately, today. Same packaging, also smashed.

    Going to be an expensive week for Amazon, that's 8 free shippings they'll be sponsoring on 2 items of 4.5€ each.

    At least now I have something to write if they are ever interested in why I'll be canceling my Prime trial.

    That's a shame they don't have the same level of service there they do in the US. Amazon here is top notch.  So is it a packaging issue or is whatever carrier they use abusive with their cargo?

    They pack a Dimensions box into a book carton (because it's small?). If you put a book in there, it's tough and rigid. If you put a flimsy Lego box in there.. it does not put up a fight. Abusive carrier is not really the issue, if I as much as look at the top of the box, it starts to push the Lego box flat. That type of packaging simply isn't meant to transport anything that's not solid, so definitely not a Lego Dimensions box:



    On the positive service side, they have refunded both purchases and allowed me to keep the packaging. I try not to be a box collector, and of course I bought it for the contents, so I'll just keep them and that's it. But if it were a gift, that would not have worked out...

    They agreed something is wrong and they need to fix it "in that department" but that it will "take quite some time to do so". That may have been in response to my statement that they should fire the person that decided to use that type of packaging for this type of shipment. ;-)

    @Kerre can definitely tell you a lot more "Amazon returns" stories, I'm sure...

    A friend of mine told me I "ordered too little" and "big orders come in a big sturdy box". Well yes, but I ordered 4 things and they split it into 3 deliveries... 1 of the 3 parcels indeed had a nice box and its contents were fine.

    ^I've had the same problem as you with Amazon,  with Dimensions in fact.  The first time they sent it, the box was in perfect condition - aside from the fact that they purposely folded the flap.  After I contacted them to complain, CS said they would leave a note for whoever was packing it.  The next time, it came nearly perfect (small smoosh to the corner but because I'll open it I let it pass) but only by luck because they had packaged it in a book carton again.  I did complain again (because I don't want future boxes like that), and they extended my Amazon Prime membership by a month for free.  I'm still on student prime, but when that expires next year I don't think I'll renew at full cost.

    Just spent a 'tidy' sum on a street of modular buildings including 'Cafe Corner, Green Grocer and Market St' - broke into a cold sweat when I realised how much I had spent but putting together the Green Grocer last night made it all worth while at least until the credit card bill lands.

    @stlux - Products relating to each of the new films have codenames assigned to them. For The Force Awakens they were simply 'Wolf 1, Wolf 2 etc.' and for Rogue One they were 'Seal 1, 2, 3...' for everything relating to the Rebel Alliance and 'Shark 1, 2, 3...' for the Empire.

    The Last Jedi products are codenamed after famous bears, as evidenced by those labels! The names aren't supposed to appear on shelves but I suppose the computer doesn't know that :)
