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 ...

In case anyone was wondering, yes, Amazon does ship the Porsche with the outer Lego box. Came in minty fresh! Now to decide if I should QF or keep and build (bought it with credits/GC on Amazon for a total of $200 plus tax).

For $200 it's safe to build and display . I would keep the box and manuals in a safe place so they stay minty .

I did originally think that this would be a nice qf at xmas but with it being stocked everywhere and with new xbox, new ps4 and new ps vr coming out this year I don't think this will be top of xmas lists the way i thought it would when released.

Why is everyone buying now? Surely this will be around for YEARS to come no?

Since Porsche is a VW company and probably under the same licence as the Camper, Beetle and Audi/Porsche Speed Champions, I would expect this set to be around for a very long time and I expect much bigger discounts in the future. It's far from exclusive and Technic (a turkey theme?) so I'm only buying one to build when it's cheap enough. It's too big a box to store long term IMHO and the QFLL window has closed.

Who is "everyone"? In the US it´s 2x VIP which does strange things to people´s brains. In the UK, it´s 25% off at Tesco and that seems a fair price for personal build for the impatient.

For those that are waiting, might suggest taking a look at Chabel´s 919 LMP1 on Rebrickable. It uses mainly easy to find parts and has a proper, working sequential gearbox using a fraction of the parts in 42056.

Unless you can double them with decent promo sets like the London Bus, then double VIP please.

LB is a 20 euro set, maybe less when every man and his dog is flooding ebay with them, so Amazon/Smyths are probably better for larger sets and the 10 euro off coupon makes more sense for sub 100 euro sets.

Tesco´s 20% off plus clubcard points is still a better deal on the Porsche.

I was thinking more smaller sets anyway. Smyths/Tesco etc. Are better for the exclusives they sell.

My nextdoor neighbour recently paid £186 at John Lewis using Flubit and it got delivered in a proper box ready for reselling! I'm happy to wait until it's <£150.

So T minus 9h for all those wanting to stack Dr Who/Caterham etc with LB and 10 euro off coupon.

Just the one Caterham I think as nothing could beat Asda's recent deal on Dr Who (£28). I wouldn't be surprised if the tenner off expires before midnight.
