    I really wonder why there are that little polys in Belgium.. unless I'm just not looking right. Every store has the same 2 or 3 - if any -, and they haven't even changed in years...

    I’m looking for the 2017 poly of the orange tractor #30353 ; has anyone ever seen it irl?

    Ha! I've effectively seen these on my last trip to Norway end of September, at newsstands on the cover of the Norwegian Donald Duck magazine in Oslo Gardermoen. 

    Originally planned to buy two of them as present for my boys if I could not find anything worthwhile. Ultimately did not buy them because of my luggage was literally full of LEGO going back (post about mid-page).

    I picked up the Old Fishing Store yesterday, while it was on offer in Smyth's, only to have to squirrel it away as it's a Christmas present from my wife.

    I have no patience so Ninjago City will be bought this week. Plus looking at buying a couple of sets before Xmas and the Ferris wheel will be next on the list.

    Stopped at my local-ish TRU the other day to check the deals; they had a free Kai Pod when you spent $30 on LEGO, so I got the Bricktober Batman set and a little TLNM set. They also had the Bricktober City set, but I passed. Now I wish I would’ve picked it up just for the machete alone. XD

    Sounds like a roleplaying game intro

    -

    One Wegmans had 4 #70621 at $5.42 (45% off) and 22 #30354 at $2.92 (instead of $3.99, but since I've seen that at Target for $3.49 it's more like 15% off instead of 25%). Another had 11 30354 - and lots of #70372 for $2, still overpriced

    Well, it’s the holidays, so...

    Thanksgiving Harvest
    Christmas Town Square
    Christmas Train Ride
    Winter Village Station
    Nutcracker

    I started getting the Winter sets with Santa’s Workshop, but skipped the Toy Shop. Still haven’t decided if I want to go back and get it or not. It never fully sparked my interest like the Workshop and Train/Station.

    My son recently purchased Buckingham Palace, and really enjoyed the architecture build.
    I managed to track down a Trevi Fountain for him at a Barnes and Noble. I was pretty excited, because looking at most sites, it had looked like I had missed this without paying a mark-up.

    I just bought Lego IDEAS Ecto 1 set. Ebay. missing a few pieces that are available on bricklink. this would be my first bricklink purchase.

    Picked up a #40206 Santa for $12 at a local Stop and Shop grocery store. Was surprised to find it, as it is listed as a "LEGO exclusive" in the Brickset.com entry.

    Also received my copy of #21312 Women of NASA and a bunch of LED "fairy lights" from Amazon.

    old fishing store and heavy assault walker. buy 2, get 50% off of the least expensive one. they are both 150. also I think it's my most expensive lego purchase ever (yeah, I'm probably a small player)
  • Toc13Toc13 Member Posts: 1,029
    Managed to not jump onto any Amazon offers, luckily nothing on my wishlist came up.
    I did pick up the SW advent calendar at 50% off via Asda. Ordered yesterday, expected delivery Sunday but got a message today & since we were on the way there anyway, didn't even have to go out of my way.

    I only have a Snowspeeder and an AT-AT, so I don't hate AoH like most people do. I just don't think it's a UCS set and it's certainly not worth 250. 175 is much more reasonable.

    I'm collecting all the good-guy ninja vehicles & mechs from the Ninjago Movie. Haven't picked up Cole's Quake Mech yet, and I'm waiting on Kai's Fire Mech from [email protected] with my Women of NASA set which appears to be lost in the ether...

    Looking for feedback on two partial sets I recently purchased (and if there is a better place to move this to please have one of you wonderful MODs do so).  I bought two 76052 Classic TV Series Batcave sets recently both listed as 'missing minifigures only' from two different people and both were missing the batcycle.  One was also missing about 100 other pieces and I haven't had a chance to go through the second one yet.  I think both may have been legitimately overlooked and both sellers are supposedly doing what they can to find the missing pieces and for now I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt. 

    Is this common though with this set in particular or just buying 'minifig missing only' sets?  It wouldn't be so bad except that both of them did this and that it's a potentially $10 portion of each set.  Granted, I paid about $140 for both so even if each was missing 500 pieces it'd still be about 3.5 cents a piece.  I typically only buy new and I'm thinking more and more I should stick to this if it is a common occurrence.  Opinions or validation of my annoyance at this is much appreciated. :-)

    @Switchfoot55 That's only about 1 unit on the stlux scale of buying, and I'd need at least 4 of those to make a decent Christmas tree!
    Need to get the tree up some time prior to Christmas, so I think I'll stick to putting up an actual tree this year ;)

    @stlux I'm jealous of the Big Ben... when I saw it was on sale in the UK/EU and not in NA I almost cried :(  Looks like a pretty good haul overall!
  • KingAlanIKingAlanI Rochester, NYMember Posts: 1,829
    Black Friday week made me feel like @SumoLego or @stlux with the amount I bought
    Got some DUPLO at Marshalls tonight for Christmas gifts
    #10590 $13.99, #10822 $16.99 - nearly the same piece count including a few bulky ones, and 3 figures (though the 1st is 3 people and the 2nd is 1 person and 2 animals). I'm guessing Disney tax, most direct example I've seen of that
    Hopefully that's the end of it - oh wait, got a mailer about a LEGO Store promo..

    I just picked up the last copy my store had of #60132 since it was on sale for 59.84
    Have wanted it awhile but never liked the price of this set. I had them price match their own website as it was $94.99 in-store & I used $40 in rewards points & got the free #30345  I ended up paying $21.58 total w/tax

    Nice find!  I bought it a year or more ago now when it went on sale at TRU, as it often did.  The regular price was a bit much, but it makes a nice city addition at a sale price.

    I just ordered Ninjago City. Hope it's as good a build as it looks. Sadly no freebies, but couldn't say no at double points. With current VIP points, £10 voucher from the catalogue, £10 gift card from when the PayPal promotion was on, plus cashback from my work reward scheme, the total cost was just over £200 with almost £25 worth of points back on top.

    Just got the Star Wars advent calendar for £7.50. Was going to skip it this year, but at that price was too hard to say no. 

    Now or to do some catching up with the builds.

    just bought both simpsons buildings: simpsons house at 10% off, and Kwik-E-Mart at 33 % off.
    I was worried I might miss the house, and apparently I was close to do so, as it was not available anymore on that website 15 minutes after I ordered. Seems like I got the last one.
  • eMJeeNLeMJeeNL The NetherlandsMember Posts: 362
    Got myself a #31065 at 25% off the reduced price. Another little piece of the MyCity-puzzle I'm trying to complete.

    i am not dead :p

    anyhow.
    poped in to Argos today to buy #70917 The Ultimate Batmobile
    with a little help from some christmas gift money. (Dad asked out of the blue, "do you wish to have your gift now?" ... Dum question of you ask me.)
    so any how. store sold the one it had last night and it would have been 4pm before it could get one from one of the close by stores (would have had to get a taxi back down to the store that about £12 so... NO.) so had to pay for home Delivery (£4 bet's out £12 any day.), however i did get a free #5004934 out of the deel. (argos have that priced up at £4.99 that's a rip off.)
    now the only TLBM set i still wish to get it the Bat-Space Shuttle.
    for a lego Theme i told my self i was not going to buy any set from look like i well end up with 4 set from the theme.

    now as it was part payed from my christmas gift cash. do i Rap it up and place it under the tree to open christmas day or. just place it on my for once emtey build stack.

    My kids got gifted a couple of chocolate selection boxes which nobody in our house can eat due to allergies/diabetes so decided to gift them to a local kids charity.  Local Sainsburys had some TLBM sets on offer at 2 for £20 so donated a couple of those those at the same time.  The 500 bonus Nectar Points on £20 LEGO spend token I used meant I got something out of it too!

    as some members well know, Amazon Prime now upped it's free shipping limit. to £40.
    well today i found a set priced at dead on £40 on amazon prime now. that been growing on me for months. each time i seen it i wish to own it just a little bit more.

    well today i pull the trigger on #41317 Sunshine Catamaran. 38% off.
    i know it's been lower but i did not think it would get back down to the low price it got to when Argos or Tesco ran there 3 for 2. also. i kind of want it for Christmas.
    also also, as other members know i have a week point for Boats the only boat that not calling out to me is #71042 Silent Mary that one only whisper to me in a small voice "buy me" but most of the time it is over powered by the voice that tell me "OVER PRICED!" if it has been priced up at say £119.99 i have a far harder time of not buying it.
    anyhow.
    i got more lego.
    and there i was trying to save up some Cash for bigger set's. ah well #10260 downtime Diner dose not need to be got yet. and #10255 Assembly Square can wait a little longer. dont think i can wait to long now on #21310 old Fishing Store. will have to pick that up in the next 2 months.

    I went to Target the other night to do some Christmas shopping and they had some TLBM CMFs, so my girlfriend was able to get me #71017-2 Glam Metal Batman. While there, I saw they had #70613 Garma Mecha Man for 20% off, so I went back yesterday and picked that up as well.

    I should find out soon about silent mary being overpriced or not (though I didn't pay full price). I saw it once and it was rather large from what I remember. the box says 68cm long and 48 cm high, so that may well be my largest even.
  • LuLegoLuLego UKMember Posts: 891
    I know they’ll be discounted soon enough but I couldn’t resist picking up a complete set of TLBM series 2 today! I brought home the display box too.
