As far as new sets go, most of the 1H2018 stuff is available now (Technic, City, Ninjago, Nexo Knights...) but what's more of an issue is that Dreamland's pricing is ridiculous. A lot of the 2018 sets are more expensive the LEGO direct; A lot of small and mid-range Ninjago and Nexo KNights sets are 5€ more expensive. Quite a big difference for a 20€ set like #72001.
Some odd thing with Dreamland's 2018 Nexo range as well: they have an 'Exclusive' tag...
In other news, Lego has been pretty absent from the sales this January. Our local Carrefour Planet went from a whole isle of Lego sets before Christmas to about 5 or 6 boxes left on the shelf. It looks pretty sad. Went to a Dreamland today and not much Lego in the sale.
Seems to be an online only item, with no stores showing stock.
I blew mine on a Nexo Knights set above RRP...
@Covi didn't you mention in the main page you wanted to buy an extra one for a family member?
Was just in Dreamland and they were hanging up banners for 15% on nexo knights. Shop assistant seemed to think it was only in shop for a couple of days and then online but that seems strange.
Very shocked to see all the prices of the SW stuff. When you see how small the boxes are it's somehow more real than online.
Walked out without Lego. Got a nice ruler for my son for 70 cents though.
Ps shop assistant was nice but strange, be first said, 'oh you poor' when I came in, in my wheelchair and after we paid he wished me to get better soon - why would he assume it's going to get better? I'm guessing he meant well but that's never happened before. Very strange.
It works! I'm not going to buy one, though... it's way out of my price range for one set and I have nowhere to put it!
and how did you guys learn about the promo? Was it in a mail or...?
At this point I'm fairly sure it's a "pull back in" code for "not actually loyal" customers.. :)
It's happened the last couple of times to me, took me a while to realise why I was getting this extra discount, but I've calculated it and it's the exact VAT difference. Pretty cool, an extra 50 cents or even a euro here and there is always welcome, right!
Funny thing is, the discount is actually more than the VAT difference. Case in point: I just bought a #75189 First Order Heavy assault Walker for 89,66 € delivered (no prime required) whereas the listed price is 89,98 €. Likely this is a rounding error because the Amazon pricing software can't start from the proper price ex VAT.
Seems the LEGO range Kruidvat carries was trimmed down again after being broadened with some larger sets a couple of months ago.
So 25% cashback on those is not too bad if you haven't added these to your collection yet.
- #10251 Brick Bank
- #10246 Detective's Office
- #10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van
Not that exiting by itself but Bol throws in a free "easter bunny with small house" with many sets above 20 € - not just these. They're not specific about the set number of the offer nor is there a picture but it's very likely #5005249 being offered; Bol even has these for sale individually albeit for 10,99 €.
Interesting for people that are after #5005249 but not near a LEGO store/have difficulties getting to the free shipping threshold/if you can combine both deals. I ordered a #60182 (+bunny) for the birthday present pool for 23,99 € delivered myself.
After looking through the sets I decided to go for the same thing as you :) Very happy. Cheers.
So e.g.: Friends collercoaster is now €74,99 instead of €99,99
Not a friends collector myself, though I once bought some sets heavily discounted for the parts to MOC with, but perhaps others are?!
They also had the #30352 Police Car polybag for €3.99. The pick a brick wall was again very poor, doesn't seem to have changed in months which is a real shame. However, there was an open box of 1x3 light bley plates on the shelf which was already nearly empty.
Intertoys has similar actions:
- Like other stores, you get #5005249 Iconic Easter 2018 when spending EUR 25 or more on Lego. Until stocks last.
- Buy 2 Ninjago sets, and get 50% off the 2nd set. Valid until 01 April. (Seems to be valid across Ninjago and TLNM)
- Buy 2 City sets, and get 50% off the 2nd set. Valid until 01 April.
- Buy 2 Friends sets, and get 50% off the 2nd set. Valid until 01 April.
TRU DE doesn't just have 20% off #70620 Ninjago City, but on all Lego. This includes the other exclusives they carry, such as #75159 Death Star.
- Spend EUR 25 on Lego to get #5005249 Iconic Easter 2018.
- Buy 2 Speed Champions sets, get 50% off the 2nd set.
- 15% off all Ninjago sets.
TRU NL has the same 20% off, but is usually more expensive than TRU DE. They currently don't have any exclusives either that TRU DE doesn't carry.
Knowing LEGO's lead times the production orders for #5005249 must have gone out when TLG's aggressive growth projections were still in place so there must be plenty of them. I predict a healthy supply of #5005249 just like there are still plenty of #5004468 available around here - like this seller that has still about 500 for sale:
