    about good deals, or technical difficulties at checkout?

    It is a line from Futurama when one of the characters is about to buy the item but before then he is told about some of the shortcomings of the item and the character retorts 'shut up and take my money!' (look it up on youtube). I would not say good deals, it is a comment about how regardless of the limitations,  restrictions, or caveat emptor of the item, you just want it at all costs.

    I want the minifigure factory. I'm not thrilled about the stipulation for 75 or over right now due to limited funds I have though.

    $75 is a LOT for a micro Benny!

    @madforLEGO I got the reference, I was wondering how you were using it, thanks for explaining.

    I'm not particularly interested in the minifig factory and probably won't buy just to get the promo.

    Few new markdowns online today, Ninjago Brickheadz, A handful of Batman and Batman Movie sets, etc. The Wonder Woman movie set is probably the best of the bunch as it was TRU exclusive so [email protected] might be the only option soon.

    20% off and $64 for Superhero High... gosh no.
    Wal Mart and Target had it for $15-40!

    Double VIP points going on March 16 - 30...Surprise! I was picking out something to get the Classic Easter Bunny Hut promo when the announcement came up on the home page. Now I need to consider making another order to take advantage of the points.

    ^ I am thinking the same thing, about another purchase for double points.  I also need to save some money for the April 1 mini-fig factory promo. Decisions, decisions. :)

    Question: do the double VIP points also apply to in-store purchases?

    The lure of double points and a bunny fig were too much...finally caved on the Ship in a Bottle. It was the cheapest thing LEGO had in stock that I'm ok paying full price for.

    #40304 (promo for $25 of DUPLO) isn't mentioned on the website but does show up in the cart. That, the Easter promo and 2x VIP is definitely worth ordering something, but like @BuriedinBricks I wasn't sure what to get at MSRP. #10714 was just enough after the DUPLO stuff.
  • MegtheCatMegtheCat Houston, TXMember Posts: 489
    ^It is actually mentioned - it's the fourth screen on the rotating banner on the main page. It goes Double VIP, Hulbuster, Easter Bunny Hut & Duplo promo (though purchase threshold is not listed).

    It is almost a shame that they are doing such a low spending threshold promo during Double VIP points. It makes me want to make several low dollar orders instead of one big one, to get more bunny figs.

    Maybe TRU was supposed to run the Bunny promo but alas...Lego is backstocked with pallets of it, they have to encourage spending to get rid of the promo quicker so they lowered the threshold

    That certainly seems possible, since the graphics on the TRU website include that Easter Bunny minifig.

    A Lego associate told me yesterday that they've got about a thousand bunny figures- they shouldn't be sold out for a while.

    I had a great experience at the St. Louis store yesterday. They didn't have one of the new Speed Champions cars or the Luh-loyd Brickheadz, so I was given a code for free shipping so I could order from Shop at Home. Plus, I was given a bunny figure since my in-store order plus what I  ordered online ended up totalling over $35. All in all, quite a pleasant experience.

    I wonder if it’ll hit the stores and website on sale post-Easter...

    You're right, I was thinking of the info in the My Bag popup
    Relatively few DUPLO sets are still in stock, which makes it harder to pick what to get for the promo, but I do want the pizzeria, and a couple TLBM s2 CMF's aren't a bad throw-in

    Ill be waiting until the minifigure factory promo starts tonight. Will likely get two tron sets, and a CMF or two if they have Series 18 or do a minor PaB purchase. The problem is my last PaB purchases was either delivered to the wrong apartment or stolen off of my stoop (first time for everything I guess) because FedEx did not have a signature confirmation for the item.

    There is a limit of 1 on the tron set unfortunately. I actually want to 3 sets total to recreate the scene from the movie.

    Yeah, the limit one sucks, but I can see why. Better for everyone to get a shot at one. Maybe Ill go ahead and splurge on the ship in a bottle as well.

    1 PAB piece? Apparently I'm a high roller for getting a CMF.

    Would they fulfill multiple orders for 1 each? Often TLG seems to bend limits of 2 or 5 in that manner. It wouldn't help get promos but could still be useful.

    On backorder many Star Wars sets are. Happens often with themed promos that does.

    Last day for #5005358 Minifigure Factory. Surprised it's still in stock. $75 anything for that stacks with $60 Star Wars for #5005356 Darth Vader pod. Great deal if there's that much SW stuff you want.
    S18 is still out of stock

    I wonder how many people bought multiples of the transformation set to get the Darth pod?
    I would rather just wait and find the transformation set on sale for 20 or under and get the two Darth's, Emperor and the droids.

    S18 is likely out of stock because of demand and the second shipment has not gone out yet (like to go out by end of April Im guessing.. will know when we get the notification from Minifiguresplus that the sets/boxes have been shipped).

    Minifigure factory was also in the store still, grabbed one by getting a PaB cup and a bunch of minifigure parts as they have chihuahua, violin case, Guitar, yellow snowboard, Erlenmeyer flasks, and Series 12 Princess parts (except the frog and her hat piece), along with gray cats..

    @madforlego transformation set is apparently #75183 - seems like a good value. it's on backorder. in general, sales elsewhere can be a better deal than LEGO promos especially if you don't want a big order.

    @Pumpkin_3CK5 @Fizyx I was looking at the April calendar, hadn't heard about it being extended to the 20th. @pharmjod maybe they ran out by the 15th anyway. Minifigure Factory still being advertised when clicking on My Bag

    Sorry for the false alarm as to a sale, but in regards to the upcoming May the Fourth sale, do we know which sets will be going on sale?  I may want to place an order now, to get the Darth Vader Pod, but would also want to make a purchase on May 4th.  I'd like to choose sets now that have a high likelihood of *not* going on sale for this purchase, and save the sets which are likely to go on sale for the May 4th purchase.  I am targeting the $19.99-$29.99 sets for both of these purchases, as those ones appeal to me the most.  Thanks!

  • BumblepantsBumblepants Sofia BG/Dallas TXMember Posts: 5,589
    It's usually older stuff that has been out a year or more and all the tat like flashlights and keychains. I imagine quite a few buildable figures will be on offer.

    Looks like the June deals are a little lacking IMO.  Double points on Jurassic Park sets #75828 and #75829 for the whole month, free #40291 Creative Storybook with $99 purchase June 4-20. 

    Storybook is a neat idea but not sure it is worth spending that much to obtain.

    Probably not. The last time they offered something similar to this I had to call for the double points. The customer service rep never did understand what I was asking about but gave me the points anyway.

    I don't understand, where is the outside state I can use to order online to my house?  What the hell is "online"?  If I have online, does that mean I can internet?
