If they put the Landspeeder on sale i'm going to buy at least 30! I'm pretty sure these will sell well after retired!
CET? will it be midnight or 6 am in the morning to let the US have it at midnight?
well..I think I will not stay late just for that...and log in in the morning instead....can't be bothered
How dissapointing is this? The guy seems reliable since he said that those info just came in from the Marketing-Department! This is for Europe BTW!
but I am not gonna stay late tonight for that kind of promotion. plus I already have the TC-14...
good luck everyone ! ;)
So many decisions to make!!!!
As long as all the UCS sets are still available at 2 AM EST tonight I will be happy camper. This is the earliest I can make it to a computer after seeing the Avengers.
My plans right now are Imperial Shuttle and Death Star. Hoping both of these will have some sort of a discount OR double VIP.
IF the SSD is indeed on sale and DS is not I may get it and hold off on the DS until Christmas (with my fingers crossed it's not gone before then).
But the bottom line is I could live with myself if I missed out on the DS but not if I missed out on the SSD or IS. My top 2 wish list items right there.
7929 30%, 7956 25% (I got it for 75%!), 7962 30% and 7964 20%.
I do fancy an IS but when Lego sell it for £100 less in the US I'm not touching it on principal. Amazon Italy would be the only choice for me.
If anything i would go for 10221....but between 330 eur on ebay, and 320 on lego...when you buy such a big set, 10 eur is not that a big difference ;)
plus I want to buy those Marvel sets first.
*much* less? Really? I'm going to be able to get the IS for $200 shipped, after tax, VIP and rewardsrunner cash back. I got one from amazon last November when they had the lightning deal, for $198 shipped. The cheapest it's ever gotten on Amazon was $182, a couple weeks later, for like a day. I wouldn't hold your breath to see it that cheap there again.
This is as good as it gets. Plus, you get the minifig, which you can likely sell for $20-30+, making the actual cost less than $180.
The other offers at 10% just aren't at all appealing, I have two 7964s which I got at 40% already (through Argos)
On the timing, presume they meant BST since we're already 1 hr ahead of GMT. I can stomach staying up til midnight to place an order, but not 1am. I have an early start to get to AFOLCON tomorrow!
Anyone there already and want to chip in - what's the word on the street?
It also sparks concern over future $400 UCS sets, Lego hasn't seemed to actually do all that well with any of them.
DS is good, but it isn't REALLY a UCS set, it is a play set, a large dollhouse really...
Even if the UCS AT-AT with 8,000 bricks hits 10,000 supporters, how many people here would REALLY pay $1,000 to get one? As in, really get out the credit card and spend the money?
and LEGO isnt seeing any of the money from the $2000+ MFs
I deliberated for a long time before buying the DS at 360 on black friday this past year, and I only did so because I thought it would go EOL
Once the SSD was unveiled, i thought "wow thats cool!" but at the same time knew i would never buy one because it was too expensive for something thats pretty impractical to display
the DS is easier to display, and in the end, can be a GREAT toy for when i have kids in the future
the SSD is NOT a toy, and has no use except collecting dust
as you say, the $400+ UCS set may soon be a thing of the past
For ease, here are the USA and UK links:
I'm not really blown away by this, I may try to get a IS, but otherwise it does not really look overwhelming.
Plus, all these big UCS sets serve also marketing purposes to strengthen the entire Star Wars Lego brand and product line.
How long has IS been around? Might be the last chance to get one. But too many technic parts for my taste, I think.
SSD at 279£ .. yay or nay?
