this guy knows about bubbles

If you bought 857 of them, it sure could feel like it.

I picked up a few of the new calendars in august in Scotland....and they all have the printing error. States exclusive vader figure.

So presume these should have all been sent back?

In August? Exclusive Darth Vader? Are you sure you haven't bought last years advents calenders?

Print issue/error on EU stock.

There are details on it on brickset, probably why they have been fairly hard to find at retail.

 

I can confirm the US version does not have the error. According to the stories online over the weekend, it looks like an EU error.

For some collectors printing errors are more valuable.

Yip...defo this years. I was surprised to see them at that time also...so bought a few!

I think they are sent to shops early...who probably arent supposed to put them on the shelves until a certain date.

I find it interesting that this is available almost always (as apposed to last years) at several retailers. I know, it's not Santa Darth, but still. Currently available @ Amazon & Walmart...

Give it another month and it should be gone. I know I and many others questioned the minifig choices though for sure

Now that CMF:S14 is sold out these are the number one seller on LEGO Shop at Home.  Also back in stock at Kmart, just picked up a few more.  SYW brings my buy in down to about $20 each so even if they dont take off I should still be able to flip them this year.  Not sure on the long hold on this one given the lack of a real rare fig like santa vader.

We all know that SOLD OUT at SAH means nothing. Especially on newer sets. Anyways, there were a ton of these on the shelves of my local TRU for $42.99. A decent target for TRUTH. If they sell out by mid-november (they probably will), I think they will reach $70-$80. These are a flip this year. I'm not sure why you would hold these long term.

I got to looking at the seal codes on my boxes.  It is printed on the seal that is over "Calendario de Adviento".  I have a mix of 24F5, 25F5, 28F5 and my most recent is 31F5.  Sometimes hard to see if it is in the dark section above the tag.  Point being that we're probably screwed if a 39F5, 40F5, 41F5, etc. shows up for that "Nov 12" ship date. Nevertheless, I think TLG knows that they will be stuck with these next year if this year's retailers get stuck with them and don't order as many next year, so I think the Advents will always be underproduced, though they will continuously search for that sell out date that is as close as possible to the start of Advent.

My two local LEGO BAMs have had a steady supply of 6 on the shelf. Of the TRUs, one had been very well stocked from the very beginning, with 2 shelves stocked 4 wide and as deep as possible, but now I'd say they are down to about 12-16. I just started doing 2 at a time this week from them to get the Bricktober TRU store, but others either don't have them on the shelf or are down to 2 or 3 on the shelf.
