Recommended Posts

Hello folks, I have been on holiday for he last ten days so I have lost track of what's been going on.

I see the Mini VW buying is in full swing. So what are people buying?

I remember posting a list with my ideas, but I cannot remember what they were or where I posted it! Doh!! :P

Are the Winter sets for sale as yet? They had RRPs of

I went for 5x #850487 and a gold minifigures key chain. I really like the Halloween set, I have built up quite a stock of these! Will probably duplicate this order several times over the month.

Hmmm large VW to get the mini VW seems to be popular, might do this myself ;)

Have you all been getting multiple VW minis for multiple orders? I have seen some posts where people say they have only gotone.

How much is the mini VW worth?  (Can't look up Ebay at work unfortunately)

 

Shouldn't you just consider the value as a discount off the order?

I think at the beginning of the month, they were selling for about $20 new. Now I think there are selling for less.

I like the one train station 7937 one mine craft order.

 

I got the Mindstorms Ev3

My star wars order is two hoth sets. 75014  I chose this set b/c I THINK it is exclusive to TRU and they (TRU) have it priced 20 bucks over retail.  I don't see TRU dropping the price much more than the retail of 49.99.  I'll have to hold these longer than I would like but they aren't that big and they are holding their price on ebay. (I'll prolly be stuck with these for like 2 years...which means they typically get given as gifts to the nephews.)  You could even do one of these sets and the the frigate poly bag.  Just make sure you spend 75 to get free shipping and the other poly bag too.

I think the hoth set is going to be a big bust.  Nothing really new and no interesting figures.  I have picked up at least one of every star wars set the last couple years and I plan on skipping this set completely.  I could be wrong though.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. They certainly don't seem all that interesting.  They are holding their price better than most other things for sale on the website. (Without parting sets out.) I didn't want to splurge on the ewok village yet.  If they are duds...I'll just give them to the nephews and write them off as gifts I have to buy at some point anyways.

I have sold 2 for $17 a piece (free shipping) so I made about $14 each after fees and everything.

It will be. Only people who will want it are people like me who want every star wars set.

I've done a couple different orders of the new Minecrafts as well as the Star Wars Advent Calendars and another R2D2. I've got 6 different orders on the way. I think 3 also include the storm trooper polybag.
