    I'm guessing they may be available as a two-pack as well, a la Rey and Kylo Ren.

    Lego likes money. I'm confident they'll want to make that money in other countries too. We may have to wait a few months though.

    I chatted to CS last night after hearing a rumour elsewhere that TLM2 Brickheadz weren't coming to Europe. I was told that they (CS) didn't have a release schedule for those sets but to keep a close eye on the shop... don't know what that really means, probably that they just don't have any information. I was told that they are Wal-mart and Target exclusives in the states.
    So, no news really.

    This all smells like a Funko marketing executive has joined LEGO.. “Let’s do some exclusive deals with large US stores, and make the product exclusive and hot items.. “

    Seems to have worked if they are already sold out..

    Store exclusives aren’t exactly a new thing for LEGO.

    Can confirm that this is exactly what that phrase means - us lot in customer service didn't know jack about the exclusivity until they popped up on Walmart's website publicly so we're about as in the dark as everyone else here. I'm really personally hoping that they do pop up elsewhere in the world (my mum really wants a Wyldstyle one a'right) but we simply haven't heard anything about it yet so it's just a waiting game at the mo.

    Also it's probably a given, but if any of you do decide to let CS know your thoughts on this (and any other exclusive sets TLG have done recently for that matter), please be polite and understanding towards the person you're speaking with? Decisions about distribution are made by the higher-ups in Billund and not Jimbo from CS that you're speaking to on the phone - we'll happily pass that feedback on and make sure it gets heard, but the more understanding y'all are towards us lot on the frontline the easier that it gets for us to pass stuff on.

    I mean, most people here probably already have this in mind but I just thought I'd give it another nudge for anyone motivated to contact CS for the first time, y'know? Be excellent to each other an' such.
    Being from USA, I've only dealt with Enfield's team, but  I figure if they're any indication, LEGO's customer service is probably the greatest in the world...

    The up-side of them being sold out before I even realized they were available is that I don't have to agonize over how many to buy.

    MandR Productions claimed in his review video that at least Emmet and Lucy will be available again later, and they're not limited to the 5,000. I don't know about his credibility.

    Zero unless he's a LEGO corporate person, which he's not. But I don't disagree with the assessment.

    I'm sure some folks in the Legal Department would take issue with slapping limited edition numbers on some boxes, and then producing more.

    If they came in a two-pack, that's probably enough to distinguish the labeling/marketing.

    Wal-Mart would also get in some consumer protection hot-water for advertising its limited number... and then there are a mess more available.

    They did it in reverse for Kylo and Rey. "Limited edition" two pack then wide release singles.

    I don't know why, but all of a sudden, I'm picturing Tupac tossing Kraft singles onto babies faces.

    Definitely buy three.
    I showed that SNL skit to the family recently and it still makes me laugh. One of my favorite parts is when the kid asks what his wife thought? The guy stares lifeless up at the sky with the music playing in the background. 

    So, yes, to reiterate: One to open and play with, one to.keep.sesled and one "just in case".

    My wife branded me a dork.  She didn't think it was funny.
