    A little shopping to celebrate the New Year
    I think I'm going to save the Diner for the 28th when the anniversary set giveaway starts... but it was hard to resist when I was in the store this morning and they had a beautiful display full of them just sitting there...

    This is what I wanted to buy... instead I got a Silent Mary and a bunch of TLNM figs.

    And as an aside, I respectfully detest having to purchase holiday-themed Brickheadz.  Just when I think I'm out...

    Bought Santa and Gingerbread man keychains on sale via [email protected]

    Sucks they limited it to 5 each per transaction.

    I had to add filler.

    I'm okay with them for a year, or even one or two each year.  I just hope they don't end up going all BrickHeadz, all the time for seasonal sets.  I like the line (unlike a lot of people here) but that would be too much.

    Given that TRU has most of an aisle of Funko Pop! or Vinylmation whatever those stupid things are called - I see the 'necessity' of the trend.

    Thankfully, those exclusive SDCCs killed them off for me!

    I also bought the diner today but haven’t started building yet. I figure I’ll buy something else to catch up at month end to get the 60th set.

    It was actually the NYCC exclusive that just about did me in.  Locking Boba Fett/Carbonite Han in an exclusive like that was a horrible idea.  I sprung for the overpriced secondary market buy for it, but if they keep doing super highly desirable sets like that... well, I'll be out sooner rather than later.

    i have spent the last 10 days. oooo-ing and are-ing, over getting #66493 from Tesco's
    it's £168 dead right now.
    it come with :-
    #60052 (RRP £149.99)
    #60050 (RRP !!-Retired Product--!) [it was £49.99 when lego sold it]
    #7499 (RRP £15.99)
    #7895 (RRP £15.99)

    right now Asda have #60052 listed at £97.00 but it out of stock.
    Tesco have it listed at £107.99 but it also out of stock.
    Smyths have it listed at £129.99 and it in stock.
    both #7499 and #7895 are list on Tesco at this time for £13.
    list we have #60050 that you can not get for under £70  even on a good day and most of the time you will be paying + £90 or more for it. hell i seen it listed on Amazon at £159.99.

    on the best day (unless you spend evey day looking at ASDA webpage 4 time's a day.) you can pick up #60052 for about £110 we call it. but no one has stock at the time so we looking at £130 to come off the £168 and that give us £38. most of the time you will pay from £10 to 13 for both #7499 and #7895 but seeing as it listed up at £13 right now we will call it £13 x2 so that is £26 more to come of that £38 makeing that £12 for #60050.

    even paying best price for #60052 #7499 and #7895 (that is when the shop hand stock and i was looking at the page.) [as i have seen #60052 list on asda for under £80 but by the time i know about it, it was out of stock, i never had a hope in hell of geting it]
    so that is About £100 for 60052 and about £10 each for both #7499 and #7895 so i be paying £48 for #60050

    this is not the best price you cound pay for the 4 set's. but it is not a bad price.
    seeing as one set is Retired. and it's price is going Sky high. add's a bit more shine to the over all "is this a good price for this Super Pack."

    it was not untill i desided to see what each part would cost me today right now to buy. that i made my mind up to get the super pack.

    so i have just placed a Order at Tesco for #66493 costing £168. this well give me the #60050 that i been after for 370 days. i cound not find one at a price i felt ok to pay 370 days ago. so i was starting to think i never get one. it will also give me #60052 that i been looking at for a year. hoping it come on offer when i had the monay to buy it. (at about £100. it did not.) and lot of Track. so i am happy. maybe i will have the track to do a real floor layout now and not just a small LOOP to NOWARE!  

    man this is a long post. if you still reading this good on you. here is a cookey.
    so yes i just placed a order for lego trains. at a ok price....... also john lewis has the same set #66493 at the same price. so if your after one and tesco has run out right john lewis as well.

    Bought this today at a Lego clearance, both sets were 50 % off. TLBM series 2 bags were 3 for 2, so i bought 3 of those as well. Can't wait to build the Milano and BABY GROOT.

    And it was at a LEGO convention of all places! Amongst $50 Star Wars minifigs and $70 Jurassic Park dinos sat this gem that nobody really paid attention to. I think most collectors these days aren’t into the classic LEGOLAND sets like I am. I’ve been collecting older sets without interruption since I was a teenager, and I’ve noticed that many classic gems are now cheaper to acquire then they were 10-15 years ago.

    I’m going to have to go in search of more classic stuff then as I would’ve thought a convention would price something like that higher than elsewhere.

    My Walmart has been in the middle of resetting their LEGO aisle for the last three weeks.... so when I checked the app this morning and saw that these were FINALLY in stock, I ordered them right away and picked ‘em up after work! :D

    Awesome-lookin’ Rhino build! My second Sand Person! My third and fourth Jawas!! :D (sadly I’m not as deep-pocketed as most of my fellow LEGO whackos here on BrickSet)

    Wegmans new year clearance, brought me out of dark age 2 years ago
    10 #10700 Green Baseplate $4.42 each. Even if they don't sell, it doesn't hurt to stock up on baseplates at that price.
    Some sets aren't a good deal, some I need to crunch the numbers and go back for

    Final parts order placed for bricklinked UCS Sandcrawler (except for 2 of the more expensive figs - they can wait!).  It's taken a while to acquire all the parts and I'm sure it would've been cheaper just buying the actual set, but it's been fun doing it in bits.  Can't wait to start building!

    I really liked the UCS Sandcrawler.  It was a fun build, and the inside is pretty intricate, with a lot of features.  One of the better Star Wars ground vehicle sets imo.  Have fun building it!  (And I'm so sorry about state of your fingers after putting all the tracks together :P)

    #21310 Old Fishing Store with £20 off at John Lewis, seconds before they put the price back to RRP.

    About half off at Wegmans - #41322 Snow Resort Ice Rink, 2 #41321 Snow Resort Off-Roader, 3 #41590 Iron Man BrickHeadz
    50% is usually a good parts deal, but 41321 especially so - likely because of parts new to a color. 41590 was a surprisingly good deal for something without minifigures, because of several printed pieces. #41592, the Hulk BrickHead, was mainly plain pieces and wasn't worth it
    Not sure what to do with 41322 - maybe gift, perhaps part out if I get more, use sports/music/food pieces/builds
    #76060 Dr. Strange half off at Target - was looking for something good for a teenage boy, most of my gift stockpile is for younger kids

    @chrisalddin @HugeYellowBrick See my post under Shopping UK, deals at Very - it's the most recent one on that thread. Available for £95.99 (£90.39 after Topcashback) with the code if you haven't had an account with them before. I just bought a further two for parts. Delivered next day to nearby Click and Collect store for free. Well packed in individual boxes.

    i did see that. i dont know if Very do home Delivery, or if them do what the price is for that Delivery would be. no store close to me and also no car. so any travel price to get to a store has to be added in to the price of the set. so home Delivery is better.
  • milambermilamber Norfolk UKMember Posts: 474
    Hi @chrisalddin You don't need to be near a Very store. I'm miles away from one, but they will do free next day delivery to any Collect Plus collection point. Just pop in your postcode and there is bound to be one nearby. I'm in rural Norfolk, but had one within 1/2 a mile - our local Spar shop. Failing that, delivery to home is £3.99 I think.

    Too much clearance LEGO at Walmart. But who can resist 50% or greater discounts? Hope it ends soon (but not before I get my #75189).

    Mrs. xwingpilot suggested we should buy some LEGO as a family to get out later in the year. And as little Miss xwingpilot is very nearly 8, she knew exactly what we should get...

    So we did!

    Bought these from past few days, cashing in on the free Dog of The Year set offer.

    For the Advent Calendar sets, they're going for half price at our local TRU.

    Last week, I bought a metal container filled with sets for $30. At the top of the container, I could see some partially built buildings (and the container itself has wheels and is very nice), so I figured I would pay what the woman was asking for the lot. After pulling out partially built items and doing some sleuthing, I know I have complete or incomplete versions of the following:
    #41015, #31026, #21105, #21106, #21107, #21102, #41029, #41052, #41094, #41037, #41027, #41090, #41039, #41026, #3315, #41028, #30115, #6743, and #41030. You might also notice in the photo that the complete car and four of the figs from #10232 are also included. There are about 3-4 pounds of loose items off to the side/still in the bin. 

    Does anyone happen to know what set the white car with blue stripes is from? I have been striking out.

    Went into the neighborhood Lego store today, hoping to get Assembly Square and the 60th anniversary set. They were out of the modular, so I "settled" for the Old Fishing Store to qualify for the promotional set.

    As an aside, it strikes me this single thread spares this wonderful forum from devolving into that quagmire of Lego "normies" that is on Reddit. Box pictures. Box pictures everywhere!

    I found out recently that if you place the order for the back ordered set, they will generally include the promo with it.  They'll probably ship the promo on its own, and then of course ship the back ordered set when stock comes in.

    (The Ferris Wheel is pretty good though, so I don't think you should be too heartbroken :) )

    Yesterday I got #70618 Destiny's Bounty and #21312 Women of NASA to get the #40290 60 Years of the Brick promo. I was really debating on the #70618 since it's showing up on Brickseek at a nearby Walmart for $40 but I've been in there several times and it's nowhere to be seen, so I think it might be phantom stock.
