    My absolute favorite score of Bricks Cascade by far is #79018, brand new in box which I was able to pick up for only a little bit more than it's original retail price!!
    So happy to get my hands on Smaug!

    I do like that set - it passed me by, unfortunately.

    Just got 3x #60181 for just €6,54 + p&p on catawiki... only the ‘trees’ are missing, but still a good deal i’d say.

    Picked up a partial #60085 for $8 at Savers on Saturday. No box, bags 1 and 2 still sealed, but missing bag 3, So I got the 4x4 and trailer, but no boat.

    They're going to be free with the new marvel game collection, but my brother got them for free (no purchase)

    well, I got five more centurions, but I only kept two. I went to multiple gamestops to get them. Seems the Iron Patriot runs out quicker.

    Why are they giving them away free? Some people(not any of us, hopefully) would flip them online. I'd love to have them, to use...

    Except in Upstate NY, where Gamestop employees follow the rules or already put them all on eBay.

    Yeah, a total of one store in my area follows the rules. Annoying for me as a non game buyer as it's the one I'm closest to... but good for them I guess

    Yes, some did that. I'd also like to warn everyone to not bother trying within three hours of Syracuse... It be too late for ye.

    When I'm at Walmart I always like to scan all sets (and polys) in the aisle looking for anything out of place (i.e. old).  Doesn't happen often but occasionally something shows up.  Today I spotted #41353 sitting nicely on the shelf.  Scanned at $11.  I spotted one at end of WM clearance in January, but it still scanned for $22 so I passed.  At $11 an easy pickup.  Well worth the entertainment value this coming December.

    Technic batch from a Canadian non-member trade. Shipping murdered me though.

    I didn't get Iron Patriot at Gamestop, but they did give me 30620 and Silver Centurion. Then I bought a Steam Card. So, good day.

    I wasn't able to get an Iron Patriot either, but they gave me four Silver Centurions. (Not reselling them though. Most of them were given away)

    Or here in TX where all 3 stores are hoarding them behind the counter.

    I guess Illinois GameStop employees are nicer. That's the only plus I've found to living in Illlinois though...

    I just snagged #17101 Boost Creative Toolbox on the Facebook Marketplace for $20. Everything looks to be complete, including box and play mat. Only missing instruction booklets. Feeling pretty great about it!

    I got #5891 Apple Tree House today from a seller on Facebook for a tenner. Missing eight minor pieces, all from the tree, basketball hoop and lawn mower. It's been on my wanted list for a while now, so nice to pick it up so cheaply. A simple but enjoyable build; it looks nice but I can help thinking that the scale is all off, but that's pretty common with Creator buildings I suppose.

    I  just realized these buildable figures, with their many articulation points, are perfect to use for that old Nintendo DSi downloadable F&GR game "Photo Dojo"

    Son's 11th birthday "haul". He didnt care for nor built the Boba Fett (other one's mine) & he complained the size of the carnotaur was misleading due to the enlarged cover pic. Also says the parts are "too hard to find" & "sets take too long to build" so I guess he thinks his birthday kinda sucked.

    Better luck next year then! He should be thankful he even got gifts from his parents in the first place, others aren't so fortunate :)

    He's, of course, more than welcome to send them to me.

    Hopefully you got him some cheese to go with that whine.

    I understand your frustration though. We struggle with helping our kids be appreciative and grateful as well.
