  2. Sometimes you’ve just got to say wow - A friend wanted to give his kid’s old Legos to my boys. My train obsessed son has no idea how lucky he is - A complete Emerald Night with the tender and coach unopened! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Purchased two #71044 Disney Train Stations (Train Station bags only) on eBay some time ago. Finally put together and modified to be a complete and enclosed building. They are essentially mirrored from one side to the next. I also expanded the taller tower a little bit and now fits a total of four windows on the roof instead of the original just having two. Plus, I made it to be modular as well. I did not have to use too many extra pieces from my bulk, mainly tile pieces and the train tracks. And I was able to integrate the cobblestone tiles from the GWP Harry Potter Diagon Ally #40289. I do enjoy train station buildings and I think it looks pretty sharp.

  10. It always cracks me up how so many people here seem to think that every little thing that happens with respect to LEGO is part of some well thought out and carefully crafted master plan. I have no direct insight into how LEGO runs internally, but I'm guessing it is far more chaotic and less well planned than many believe. They are running a massive operation and I'd bet they spend far more time figuring out mundane things like how to get X tons of ABS plastic pellets from point A to point B at just the right time so they don't have to sit on a dock waiting for the necessary colorant to arrive from the dye supply company, than they do figuring out when to post a Retiring Soon tag on LEGO Shop at Home to squeeze a little extra out of resellers.

  12. Back at the end of August I bought a bulk lot for $300, which was by far the most I'd spent on such a thing, I'm much more comfortable spending $30-80 for what might be random crap. However this one had manuals for Parisian Restaurant, Holiday Train, Winter Village Station, and the City Hospital as well as about $1000 RRP of Friends sets. The first and last of which I have new-in-box still, so it's a used-for-new trade out. I've spent the last few weeks sorting them, into their own brand new sorting bins that I hadn't used yet. I've gotten City Hospital and WV Station to 100%, Parisian Restaurant to 99% (just twelve pieces missing!) and just started the Train tonight, up to 45% so far. I started with some good sized chunks of the bigger sets still intact gave me a bit of a head start. A funny thing is that I'm letting my daughter play with the parts I'm sorting and occasionally I'll find the part I'd been searching everywhere for in some little build she's made. I told her when I'm done she can choose a set or a few from the stack of manuals and we can part them together.

  13. The answer is always "More Lego". I just helped my son build a road for a school diarama. I could envision this concept behind the cars. And it would give it a retro Spy Hunter feel. Sent from my moto g power (2021) using Tapatalk

  14. Harry Potter & Hermione Granger 76393 is 50% off until Tuesday or supply runs out. Limit one for the cart but it allowed me to make multiple orders. Now is the time to use those $10 gift cards. https://www.target.com/p/lego-harry-potter-harry-potter-38-hermione-granger-76393-building-kit/-/A-81911656

  18. We really need to come up with a new abbreviation for that set. Every time that I read it I forget the forum that I am in and get excited. Of course, at 60 years old, I get excited about GMILF too. 😉

  20. Cleaned out my 4 locals of the HP $60 deal. 53% off after red card. Target exclusive. Part out value is large as well if you’re into that. I didn’t want to risk a ban by buying these all online. Each store still had them tagged at $120 on the shelf. I have two more coming from online orders. At this price I don’t mind a long hold. These will go into my cryogenic chamber until ‘24-‘25. Thank you OP in the DD thread. Picked up the new FarCry6 game as well. Time to blow stuff up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  21. And I thought Lego Box Queens were bad: Buyer's note: With the propensity of any sealed LP to readily develop seam splits during shipment, my hope is that you can provide an arrangement such as a double box configuration, with the LP placed between two sheets of bubble wrap that are in turn placed between two pieces of cardboard mailers tightly taped together. Placing that inside an inner box that is in turn placed inside a larger mailer will ensure that the LP arrives in the same condition sent. Please ship USPS Priority. Best Regards, N

  23. i had 8 orders across 4 stores. right before i leave to go get the closest store i see the first set of orders get cancelled. my wife calls me half way to the store to tell me that orders at other 2 stores were both cancelled but there is still one order uncancelled which is unbelievably the store i'm now racing to. i get to the store and immediately bad vibes and drama at the customer service counter with long faces and large "kiddie" vehicles and lol house being gesticulated towards. fortunately there was a cs rep desperate to do something to get away from the unfolding ickiness and made eye contact with me as i knew the clock was ticking for me. she looked at my id and says be right back. $59.96 - 5% red card, picked up in no sales tax NH. used $30 gift cards i had lying around so actual out of pocket cost was $26.96 for all 4. then and i got a $10 gift card back lol. as i'm being handed my bags of goodies i hear the cs rep say to the manager - this customer purchased this $499 LOL playhouse for $14.99 online. then the order autocancelled. they'd like us to honor the order. the manager proceeds to talk about there being problems with the ordering system earlier tonight and that many orders were cancelled due to problem with "ordering system" wtf that means. it would have been epic if i could have gotten the rest of the orders i had waiting but happy to get these without wasting a drive.

  36. Made it to 3 stores before the cancellations hit. Ended up with 21 sets total. Was at the customer service window at the fourth store when it got dropped. I picked the shelves myself though and didn't wait for the emails, had them price match my online order and cancel it. Ended up with a small trunkload at an average of 87.6% off. Mostly Destiny's Bounty, Aston Martin, and Astronomy Towers. I'm glad to have noticed that the price crash was more than just the one set and even shared it between first and second order like a madman. Congrats to all who made out on this before they killed the orders.

  40. That looks impressive. Doubtful that I'll ever build it, the thought of eventually having to tear it down is enough for me to pass, unless Target blows them out for $15.

  41. I found Exo-Force minifigure parts in my one of my bins, cobbled them together and found a great display place on our refrigerator/freezer (they have magnets in the backs of their legs). Have a feeling my wife will not be amused, though my kids like the location.
