    Hey guys, buy this one! I'll take care of the shipping-fee ;)

    Just bought the instructions for Dmarkng's Hammerhead. Something to keep me busy after I've bricklinked the Sandcrawler!
  • KlintanKlintan Member Posts: 52
    Just bought Winter Holiday Train and Destiny's Bounty on sale. I guess now I will have to buy the Winter Village Station as well.

    Went to Cologne today and got the Halloween set, 4x Ninjago CMFs, the Winter Village Station and 2 big and one small PaB-containers. Got an extra Ninjago Lloyd minifig and the Ninjago Kai's Dojo Pod. Pity they didn't have the Thanksgiving set in yet.

    Also got myself a 2nd Winter Train at Galleria Kaufhof (already got one last year, want this one to expand the current one), as I had ordered it earlier this month via the webshop and didn't get it at the reduced price, as the order was cancelled by them due to a "technical mishap in the system". The manager of the toy department (sic) let me buy it at €15 rebate, which was very nice of him.

    I am planning to shop City Volcano 60124. The set looks very interesting to me and I am sure kids are going to love this too.

    I've only got a hand full of newer sets I want to pick up at the moment. 
    75183 - Darth Vader Transformation
    75175 - A-Wing
    70612 - Green Ninja Mech Dragon

    Beyond that I'm backtracking and going after sets that I "should have" picked up and didn't for any number of reasons.  Haven't picked up any of them yet, still looking for deals. 


    And there is list of  minifigures I try to pick up when I can. 
    Mostly tracking down various Iron Man suites, clone troopers and Marvel Heroes.

    I had to buy a tiger today but at £88 it was a bit pricey. Fortunately 1249 other parts came with it. :)
    #60162  Jungle-Air-Drop-Helicopter.
    Since I recently got the Jaguar and set #60161 for £46.36 in the Argos 342, using cheap gift cards, it felt okay paying slightly more for the Tiger. :)

    For what it's worth (for my fellow Yanks), I just bought some Duplo train sets for my kids (yes, I'm not ALWAYS a selfish Lego buyer!) and spent about $150, but, to my surprise, it came with THREE promotional items:

    • The Lloyd Minifig (30609)
    • The Caveman Minifigs (5004936)
    • AND the VIP set (40178)

    Sorry if this is already repeat information, but I was excited to say the least that ALL of this was included in my order, so I thought I'd share the love!
  • sid3windrsid3windr Member Posts: 1,460
    Some seasonal stuff to get my VIP set: 2017 Halloween, 2017 Thanksgiving, WV Station, IR receiver and a few PAB tiles to get over 125€.

    B&P doesn't count toward the promo unfortunately :(
  • catwranglercatwrangler Member Posts: 1,895
    At last, the Fishing Store is mine! Also the Halloween and Thanksgiving vignettes. And I finally understand the difference between Pick A Brick and Bricks And Pieces, and have ordered from the latter. Wheelchair parts and big cats (sadly they're out of stock on tigers).
  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 Member Posts: 3,484
    Well, last night (or after midnight, so I guess this morning) was officially my largest Lego purchase to date. 

    Winter Holiday Train (#10254)
    Winter Village Station (#10259)
    City Advent Calendar (#60155)
    Train Motor (#88002)
    IR RX(#8884)
    IR Remote (#8879)
    AAA Battery Box (#88000)
    2 - VIP Sets (#40178)
    2 - Cave Sets (#5004936)
    2 - Lloyd Minifigs (#30609)
    1 - Lego Store Employee Polybag (#5001622)

    And 570 VIP points! 

    Maybe a drop in the bucket for some, but a huge step forward (or would that be backward?) in my Lego obsession. 

    And to top it all off, I fell asleep and woke up to tracking numbers and parcels on their way to my door.  
  • snowhitiesnowhitie Member Posts: 3,078
    @catwrangler try to call them up for the tiger, for some reason it's not for order on the site but they can order over the phone (well they did a couple of months ago anyway).
  • catwranglercatwrangler Member Posts: 1,895
    @snowhitie - good thinking! I see the rest of the order just shipped (that's lightning fast for s@h!) but I gather B&P can take considerably longer, so if I ring tomorrow they'll hopefully have time to add the tiger. :)
  • mustang69mustang69 Member Posts: 544
    Placed an order for the WV station and some B&P and PaB for my Christmas Mansion MOC/MOD.
  • MrJacksonMrJackson Member Posts: 454
    Technic tow truck, London Bus, and fishing store as soon as I get down to work today.
  • MaffyDMaffyD Member Posts: 3,579
    The sticker set for Bennys Spaceship etc...

    I'm going to moc LL-928 one of these days!

    Yes I called a couple months ago and what it is is since it is a pre packaged part it doesn't come up on the website but when you call CS they usually can round it up.
  • readersamreadersam Member Posts: 62
    Baseplates. Just bought a bunch of green, gray, sand and blue baseplates as well as some road plates so that my Friends town will start to look like a town as opposed to a bunch of random buildings.

    It was on the website at one point. At least when I ordered it. All three cats were, but the tiger said it was sold out. One quick call, like you said, and they confirmed they had plenty. Of course, this was 4-6 weeks ago. 
  • sid3windrsid3windr Member Posts: 1,460
    ^ Yes, that's what was meant by "not on the website" :) Sold out = not orderable :)

    - Old Fishing Store
    - Thanksgiving Seasonal 2017
    - Bucketload of PaB and BnP to finish my Winter Village, and to build both the Balloon- and the Flower cart. It's actually cheaper to order both of these in parts (incl Minifigs) from Lego itself than to buy the complete set from BL... (don't care about packaging/instructions, and didn't bother to search for the pieces individually on BL, sorry ;)).
    - D2C VIP Set
  • Speedman29Speedman29 Member Posts: 2,338
    #60052 from eBay for £70 with some Nectar points. Christmas present number 1 ticked off the list and tucked away for a couple of months!
  • KerreKerre Member Posts: 412
    In a 24h time frame I did the following:

    - 7pm end of working day yesterday - pick up Amazon order of 2x #70588 for £16,68 each from the Doddle pickup point inside Debenhams Trafford Centre in Manchester. 
    - Noticed Debenhams had  #70589 discounted to £24,99, got one.
    - Visit the Asda Superstore across the road. £12,50 for #70624, deal!
    Also resisted the okay-ish offers at John Lewis and got kicked out of Booths before I could decide on 3x#31058 3-for-two since they were closing. Back to the hotel then to pack, sleep and head home in the morning.
    - Back in Belgium I passed by the Wijnegem LEGO store for #21310 + #40261, got freebies #30608 + #40178 (and 2xVIP points)
    - Quick stop at my local for #70611 (29,99 €).

    All set for dreary autumn days!

    Finally bought the Helicarrier today, and was given two of the vip sets. They scanned both of them, and they both came up free.
  • KingAlanIKingAlanI Member Posts: 2,354
    Supermarket had 3 cases of S17 out - found 17 Rocket Boy and Elf Girl. 3 cases would have 18 but I figure 1 was already gone from an open case.
    Another location had 2 Elf Girl
  • kbwkbw Member Posts: 422
    Really can't decide which one to get, but wanted to take advantage of the double points. Also had some VIP points to burn: UCS Death Star, Ghostbusters Firehouse, or Assembly Square. 
  • KlintanKlintan Member Posts: 52
    ^ Go with the most expensive. More VIP points :-)
  • kbwkbw Member Posts: 422
    ^Guess that makes the most sense.

    I would do the Firehouse since the other two should be around for awhile. 
  • gmonkey76gmonkey76 Member Posts: 1,833
    If the new Death Star is like the old one you'll have a good ten years to get one. The other two will probably only have a 2-3 year lifespan. Don't have the new DS yet, but the old one and the other two sets were enjoyable builds. Don't know if you have a city, but two off them are easier to display next to each other and city sets. The other one is a big gray ball with little rooms, and lots of Minifigures.
  • MrJacksonMrJackson Member Posts: 454
    @kbw Don't use redemption during double points - you'll only get double points on the remaining balance.  For example, if you bought a $79.99 set and used $75 dollars of redemption, you'll only get the double points on the $4.99 balance. 

    For my money, looking at all three sets every time I'm at work, and having built Assembly Square, I would go with that one. Unless you're a huge Star Wars or Ghostbuster fan, those two sets are kind of standalone ones, whereas the Square lends itself well to being by itself or part of a larger layout. 
  • kbwkbw Member Posts: 422
    Thanks everyone. I'm kinda chuckling at the responses because I've made most of these arguments to myself in favor of each one. 
    I like the idea of the DS now because I can buy down the price a bit and still get a lot of points. Love the minifigs in that one too and I want to add to my SW stuff. The other one was around for awhile, so may not need to rush. 
    AS would let me catch up on the the modulars and fits in nicely with some of my other sets. I like building those as well. 
    I was an 80s kid and a big GB fan. Love the firehouse and the details in that one. Minifigs are also great, but is a bit of a one-off. Why I've avoided Simpson's stuff even though I'm a big fan. That said I feel FH *should* fit in better than than those sets.
  • MaffyDMaffyD Member Posts: 3,579
    ^ Surprise yourself - get the helicarrier. :-)
  • legomentallegomental Member Posts: 371
    Haven't been able to find any bargains or give aways for ages  and I was waiting for the Smyths 20% which didn't happen but thanks to a great fellow bricksetter we now have brick bank and assembly square to play with this weekend. The modular collection is now complete  (until the new release anyway) Roll on 7pm tomorrow and let the building commence
  • MrJacksonMrJackson Member Posts: 454
    All 12?
  • legomentallegomental Member Posts: 371
    Here we go - is Market Street a modular haha

    I have all except Market Street. For some reason it didn't (and still doesn't ) appeal so I spent money on other things at the time. My ocd says I should buy it but I don't actually like it enough

    London Bus from [email protected] VIP points, VIP set.

    Saw lego equivalent of bag for life and had to have although thought it would house all three boxes. Couldn't justify 3 bags at £5 a go
  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 Member Posts: 3,484

    Packages arrived safe and sound! Not pictures is the Lego Store Employee poly that must have shipped separately? 
  • HanzoHanzo Member Posts: 607
    Lego store employee poly? I just got my order and saw nothing of that. Guess I missed something. 
  • Game_onGame_on Member Posts: 92
    Just put in an order last night for a few things. 

    A couple xmas gifts for my kids and their cousin, and a little something for me.

    Well, it wasn't exactly little.  I picked up the 70916-1 The Batwing since it was marked down a little.  So I'll be adding that to the build queue once it arrives. 

  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 Member Posts: 3,484
    @Hanzo, I got a free promo code from attending Brickcon a couple of weeks back. It was a free poly with a purchase of $35 or more.

    from Amazon Prime Now

    #21034 London RRP £44.99 I Payed £31.50
    #41596 Brickheadz Beast RRP £9.99 I Payed £7.26
  • BillyBricks84BillyBricks84 Member Posts: 355
    If you haven't used Google Express before, there is a code on there for 20% off (up to $30) on your first order. Through the Walmart and/or Target stores on there, it looks like Destiny's Bounty or BB-8 might be good buys for people who want these now but don't want to pay full retail or aren't concerned about the freebies on Some other sets already on sale prior to the 20% off. Looks like the offer is good through the end of the month.

    Picked up a Duplo Santa set (#10837) for my youngest daughter as a Christmas present. Was quite happy to get this at RRP as & when there was an interesting promo going on but saw it in John Lewis for 1/3 off so wasn't going to pass that up
