  3. Bought this to build and to see how I liked it as a display piece, and now that its built its a hard set to imagine parting ways with. Really captures the feel of Mos Eisley! Also its a little bigger than I expected and a tad crammed on my shelf, but it works! Unfortunately I cannot open the cantina due to lack of space 😅

  6. One thing to realize is that those of us who are in a position to help are in that position because of the time we've put into this and the longevity of our efforts. I certainly had help along the way (I'm still hugely indebted to LegoFanTexas for one key piece of advice he gave years ago and Raven for...well...a bunch of stuff), but no one served everything up to me or anyone that I know on a platter. I'm happy to provide help, but it's unrealistic to expect me or Donbee or anyone else to spell out the specifics on what they're doing and how they're doing it. Besides, there is a certain "

  8. Respectfully, this isn't the point of Brickpicker. We're here to "pick" aka buy low and sell high. We're not here to advocate on behalf of all upset customers to make sure everyone gets whatever they want at MSRP. We want upset customers to buy the Frigate from us for 250 dollars after we bought it for 40. When you do things like this, you risk lowering the resale value of this set (although I suspect that this rep is like a lot of other ones and doesn't know what he's talking about).

  9. What monster over at Lego allowed this set to be number #21324? IT SHOULD BE 21234!!! This explains why the Count isn't in the set, he probably stormed off!

  16. Fair enough, and I mean no offense, but auctionbrokers you said that "apparently Lego has taken a lot of heat from this." Some of that heat was you calling them at least three times to talk about the situation. If nobody ever did that, they wouldn't worry about Amazon and trying to cancel orders that some of us made. This is kindof a theme over the years here. Some resellers can't help themselves, they repeatedly call Lego support or their local store to address their concerns about stock or orders when the better thing is to place your orders and not be real obvious or vocal about it. Do

  19. Here I was agreeing with you till you said three reps?? Thank you very much for the info as information is a good as gold around here but.......... You talked to three different reps about this or you were reading on different forums and three other users wrote the same info? because if you called three different times to talk about this then sorry you are the issue.

  20. Contacted a Lego rep to get an update on the Frigate set. I spoke to John and he said that their team that works with Amazon are looking into this matter to find out what happened and to have it rectified. He said the last thing that Lego wants are upset customers who are not able to purchase particular sets because of resellers. I guess Lego has taken a lot of heat about this. John also said that according to his information, the set was not being sold exclusively by Amazon and that it would be available online at Lego Shop and other locations by the beginning of November. He did confirm

  27. these were available for shop at home for more than 3 months at $7.50 during double vip + promos. i bought way too many. after 3 years, i have sold 8 at $24.99. now the price is down to $19.99 and only heading lower now, these are crazy slow sellers on amazon. even worse than the LEGO VIP promo.lol. i lost more money on fba storage and then return fees than i ever made on these the 1 time i was stupid enough to send these in to FBA. IPI wrecker. i donated 12 last year and have way too many sitting on a shelf to flood the market the second they make it back to $24.99. good luck with th

  28. Feeling a little guilty. Bought some sets from a Military Exchange. They came in just a polybag and both came damaged. One worse than the other. Nothing super bad. Just one with a huge crushed corner and the other with a dented one. I inquired what would be my options via live chat. The customer service rep just immediately gave me a full refund. I replied that a full refund was not necessary, as a partial refund would be adequate. She said that it was already put in the system. So now I got both sets for free. I haven't complained about box condition in a long time, in fact most of

  29. so, are we betting that Lego didn't make enough of these for the holiday season, or stocking the shelves for the long haul? So far this year I have bought all the sets that they made plenty of, and none of the sets that they didn't. I am a bit nervous that if I buy my max of 3, it will screw all of you out of a QF because I am cursed.

  30. this forum is a "den of thieves"...and as much as we think there's some sort of "Pirate's Code"...every one of us here are competing w/ everyone else. I'm on here daily and actually enjoy the "community"...but I harbor no disillusion that anyone here wouldn't trample me on a bee-line for a 30% sale...I would only hope that the train of shopping carts would not roll over me as well

  32. I'm not advocating for upset buyers, I am trying to warn resellers concerning the status of this set so they know what may be coming down the pike. As a reseller myself, I know I would want to be aware of this. Also, this was confirmed by three separate reps so I believe that the information is solid. No worries though, next time I will keep it to myself.

  33. Hmm, possible future CMF series? Just like The Simpsons before, why make new molds just to be used for 1 set?

  34. Yeah, I don't understand their thought process here. Reduce size of set to make it more palatable as a toy for kids purchase, but then slap 18+ on the box? Really think they should have gone full-on modular.

  36. Winner, winner. Chicken dinner. The 18+ thing aside, this price tag is worth it just for the minifigures alone (assuming they're not released in some other form/set down the road). Would love to see a GWP of The Count minifigure at release.

  42. So, let me get this straight. You are arguing that a company that innovates, employs probably tens of thousands and has worked hard for nearly 80 years is to be chastised because some of their product is marketed at a higher end price range? That opportunistic resellers (of which I am proudly one) are somehow more virtuous or less worthy of scorn than the company that makes what they do even possible? Really? That's the line you're going with? There are in fact some things that don't need to be said.

  43. Some chinese site says it is set 30628 which is a GWP for purchases above 1399rmb. There was a scene of Draco stroking the monster book of monsters, I would have preferred Neville as well. It's a limited edition of 7900 sets. 😄 Pics up on stone wars as well. https://www.stonewars.de/news/lego-harry-potter-30628-monster-book-of-monsters/
