    OK, thanks for the answers :)
    I was not expecting anything, but will have a look when I get there :)

    2 hours in the shop should be plenty, I expect to use 1 hour shopping, then I can use the rest of the time feeling for the right minifigs.. I guess more tour participants are hunting for minifigs with series 19 just out, so maybe we can get a Bucket brigade aka minifig brigade going :P

    Hi to everybody from the recent Tour ✌️
    You are so right Mr.Hobbles.
    The last 3 days  were just amazing and nearly  breathtaking. All, the participants, the guides and everybody we met, definately had the LEGO DNA.
    what else to say. Oh well, yes :
    “ welcome to the design ...“ 😂

    I could not have said it better myself @Mr_Hobbles :D
    The first 1-2 hours on the drive home I was just sad it was over, but then all the amazing memories made me happy again!
    Hope everybody get home safe and that the Lego is in one piece especially the fantastic trophies you @Mahonie13 and a few others won ;)

    We and the precious cargo of lego made it home safely.  Trophy made it home too - now just got to find somewhere safe to keep it! I enjoyed meeting everyone on the Tour @Mr_Hobbles, @Roebuck, @Mahonie13, and @minicoop4 and everyone else that I don't know who you are on Brickset!  
    My son is feeling sad this morning as he returns to school but has lots of great memories and photos of his three days with you all and can't wait to start building all his new sets [Inside Tour Set already built - best set ever he says :) ] and is inspired to do more of his own creations.

    Hope to come across some of you again on our lego travels!

    Would love to see a pic of your trophy... the past ones have been pretty creative

    @Mahonie13 Yay welcome!

    I too managed to get home to SF safely, with what looks like every box 100% intact, despite (probably) the best efforts of Virgin Atlantic's baggage handlers. The Inside Tour box was carried in hand baggage - no way I was taking that risk!

    I plan to build it this week - @Legobenmax is right, it's an amazing set.

    Just got a notification - my two boxes from the employee shop just got delivered and signed for by the other half! That was fast!

    They shipped 2 boxes rather than the usual 1?
    or did you ship these yourself.

    Normally you get one box, but if you bought the #75192 Falcon they shipped that too. Didn't ask why but I presume there'd been some comments that if you chose to get the Falcon then you couldn't get anything else as nothing else would fit in the box.

    wow, thats really fast. Didn‘t they say shipping will last 3-4 weeks ?
    in the end you‘ll have it faster in SF than me here in Germany. maybe thats because of DPD, the great new parcel service that LEGO switched to here.
    With what parcel will your boxes be delivered @MrHobbles ?
    oh and Slaintje ;-)

    Yep, they told me 4 weeks too, but there we go! I got a text message from DHL this morning saying it would be delivered today.

    And Slaintje Mhath to you! Merely saying that has ended up with me pouring myself a dram of Laphroaig 10. :)

    They almost got there faster than you @Mr_Hobbles :P
    I heard someone say they skipped the MF for free since it did not fit in the box?!
    Looks like it did or is it a bigger box?

    Personally I managed to barely fit (after removing the outer extra brown box on Hogwarts):
    -Corner Garage 10264
    -Tree House 21318
    -Hogwarts Castle 71043

    @Mahonie13 I am sure they say 4 weeks to be on the safe side, I guess most of us will get it in the end of this week or the beginning of next ;)

  • Mahonie13Mahonie13 Mainz/Germany Member Posts: 7

    well @Roebuck, the MF Box is 45x38x53. If I remeber that correct the boxes they gave us were 60x50x40, so should fit.

    I was actually just a glimps away from bying the MF there, even because of the free shipping, would have been a lot of spare bricks for next MOC's !!

    puuh, that was so much stress at the shop to pack the box with as much sets as possible to reduce the weight of my luggage. I envy everybody who came by car :-)

    @Mahonie13 I was happy I decided to drive :)

    In addition to all the Lego, I bought some stuff to my aquariums and beer for my brother so when I came to the "hotel" (it was so crappy compared to the Lego castle suite) in Fredrikshavn I had to go 4-5 trips to carry everything from the car and into the room and the same move the day after (did not dare leaving anything in the car). No way I could have gotten all that on a airplane, even only the Lego would be impossible with only 2 suitcases :S

    So I do not envy those flying even if it would have been a lot faster :P

    @Roebuck whaaaat, you bought something else than LEGO ?

    SHAME on you *lol*

    Hmm, @MrHobbles, I wonder if that means mine will have arrived in Philadelphia. I didn't get any notifications from DHL. For sure it should beat the box I shipped myself... and likely me too.

    This weeks tour is just ending their time in the store.

    Welcome @Croweturtle :)
    I got a mail from DHL yesterday afternoon that the parcel had gotten a tracing number, it shipped a couple of hour later and this morning it is already in Norway :O
    I will probably get it today so it is really express I must say ;)

    @Mahonie13 Haha, lol :D
  • Mahonie13Mahonie13 Mainz/Germany Member Posts: 7
    It’s quiet funny that you @Croweturtle and @MrHobbles already received your boxes in the US and me another participant here in Germany will probably have it maybe saturday but probably monday. 
    By the way, yesterday I built the ‚Inside Tour  Set‘ and made a little stop motion video.
    Brillant set, great building. will publish the video the next days if it looks ok

    @Mahonie13 Our has to go in a plane at some point, but they can keep yours on the ground service...
  • Mr_HobblesMr_Hobbles San FranciscoMember Posts: 283
    Yeah it seems there's differing methods of transport and communication! For example I had no clue mine was on the way until I got a text in the morning saying it would be delivered that day. Seems @Roebuck got a shipping notification, and @Croweturtle nothing at all. So they must be choosing the most economical shipping per person - though bizarre that I think mine was the fastest and also the furthest!

    @Mahonie13 Please do post that video! I built mine too (and put some pictures in the status thread, but didn't take any pictures of the process! Darnit.

    Ps. All my Lego employee "business cards" are now sat in the boardroom having a meeting, along with my minifig, and the Idea House minifig. :)

    @Croweturtle - Hello! So glad you’ve joined! 
    @Mr_Hobbles - my son thinks that’s pretty cool so I think I’ve just lost my set of business cards to him 🤣

    He’s just finished the tree of creativity from the House so he’s deliberating about what to build next (so many sets to choose from from Tour and his charity shop finds 🤣)

    We’ve had a text to say delivery expected Tuesday so the final consignment will arrive and then the problem of where to put those 2 huge boxes.......

  • LegobenmaxLegobenmax UKMember Posts: 5
    @Roebuck - glad we had to fly else my son would have filled the car and a roof box 🤣

    Did you go to Loplet or is this another charity shop you are talking about?
    I used 1,5 hour to look true all the Lego on Loplet the day before the tour, but only bought a few animals :)
  • LegobenmaxLegobenmax UKMember Posts: 5
    @Roebuck we took a day trip to Vejle, the day before the tour. We found a little antique shop - he bought some Minifig parts. 
    Then we took a wrong turn to the bus station and found a charity shop with a Lego window display. He bought a small SW set and a Ninjago set - both unopened and for good price. There was lots more but he wanted to save his money for the employee shop. 

    We never got to Loplet ran out of time - is it worth a visit next time we visit Billund?

  • CroweturtleCroweturtle Philadelphia Member Posts: 5
    Hmm. I finally got shipping notification from dhl... appears they were only just given my shipment by Lego...

    Defenitly, but do not exspect cheep Lego there! The ones that are selling know what the Lego is worth and usually sell it for that..

    Hmm. I finally got shipping notification from dhl... appears they were only just given my shipment by Lego... 
    You probably have it tomorrow then :P
  • Mr_HobblesMr_Hobbles San FranciscoMember Posts: 283
    @Legobenmax Just as well you have two sets then. ;) You can follow the rule - one to keep, one to build with!

    That's the one regret I had in Billund - didn't have a chance to visit Loplet. Oh well, next time.

    @Croweturtle Yeah as @Roebuck said, it'll be there very soon. I think mine was sent 48 hour delivery. Not long hopefully!
  • CroweturtleCroweturtle Philadelphia Member Posts: 5
    Both boxes arrived! Hooray! 

    @Mahonie13 did your shipment arrive yet? 

    My new desk at work is currently devoid of all the Lego and I've been questioned/yelled at by about 9 people so far. They told me that my desk in that state is "unnatural" and makes them uncomfortable... It's only been two days.

    Did anyone else sign up for the 2020 tour?  My TFOL son and I are trying to attend, so hopefully we will hear good news by November 15...

  • benbacardibenbacardi EnglandMember Posts: 472
    I did, for the first time. The T&Cs say if you're offered a place, you have three days to accept and then it's binding—I had thought that it wasn't confirmed/bound to go until you'd paid later in the new year?
    KungFuKenny
  • KungFuKennyKungFuKenny Deep in the Heart of TexasMember Posts: 750
    ^ You read the fine print better than I did I think... although if it is binding that early it could help with a wavering spouse ... “ I have to go now, we don’t want to lose all that money!”
  • KungFuKennyKungFuKenny Deep in the Heart of TexasMember Posts: 750
    Applicants will find out in a little under six days - I’m trying not to get hopes up too much, especially since we were only able to mark 2 of the 4 dates (due to university schedule restrictions for my son)...

    I'm conducting an informal survey for 2019 LIT attendees. For the LIT exclusive set, is your set built, sealed, or (gasp) sold?

    Me - built
    My wife - sealed
  • Russell844Russell844 California, USAMember Posts: 1,872
    Still sealed for now.
  • RoebuckRoebuck Slitu, NorwayMember Posts: 58
    Sealed :) I have so many other sets before it in the queue that I plan to build. Hopefully I can build a few of the big ones I got in the P-shop during the Christmas holiday season ;)

    I’m keeping my Tree of Creativity from 2017 sealed because I can basically build the same model with the publicly available Tree of Creativity from the Lego House. The differences are minimal and I think there’s only one exclusive printed piece. Still slightly irked that they basically made our exclusive tour set ‘available’ to the public but the experience was the focus and that was fantastic!

    2019 - Sealed still, will build at some point but big backlog
