Expected shipping date now 7th of November!

Yeah I also saw that this morning, maybe the QF window has just re-opened . . . If this 'November' stock doesn't surface and it get pushed back to after xmas the price could go through the roof for those that are holding!  Any one the reasons? Is it still due to the packing issue or just a huge demand?

Wow, what a way to quickly negate any valid points you may have previously made in this thread.

LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS coming off.

So everyone buys 1/mo X 24 mo X 10,000 members .. Yeah that sounds like a great plan for the set to appreciate ...

I think it's just huge demand. This set has been the top seller for weeks now (at least over here).

Combine that with the delay in shipping for the initial order and it seems like they just can't keep up with demand. QF window might be open again, but I'd hang on till xmas too see what happens. It will be a popular gift and if there's no stock prices could increase.

Must've ramped up production since shipping date now bought in to 2 August.

I guess the chose not to respect the 1st August shelf embargo. Soon every house will have one or two, like the Tumbler.

Next question is how low it will go - 200 euros should be perfectly achievable once Amazon get it.

GT3RS arrived today. Large outer box with smaller inner box containing the set. Seems to work as the Porsche box was minty. The fountain was not so lucky as it was just thrown in the big box. Seal code 26S6.

Did they include the free gift card in the box?

No.  Per their email:

We understand how disappointing this may be for you and would like to give you a $25 gift card for the inconvenience. We’ll send the gift card as soon as your LEGO Technic Porsche ships. It will arrive separately and can be used towards a future LEGO purchase.

Recived my toysrus Porsche today was shiped in the original Lego Box and got this :(

So it was double-boxed as well? You are more likely to get a damaged box with such a heavy and large set, but sometimes I wish they added extra protection to the corners, cause they are always getting smashed.

You know the best packaging I have seen is from Apple. The way their boxes are all mint is they have cardboards to protect their corners of their packaging. Other companies that deal with collectibles need to learn from them.

I was lucky to grab 2 of the first sets on 01.06 at the Porsche online shop. What's the main difference between the first sets and the sets without gearbox issues? Should i sell mine or hold on?

 



There is no difference in the gear box. All they did was reorganize the inner boxes to stop the instruction manual from bouncing around and smashing them.
