The shop is going to carry the stock that will sell the most €€€ overall (and have some grand displays). That's likely to be lots of small to medium sets, not occasional big sets.
Yeah, that's true. But they still should have given Rivendell a better display :) Another thing I noticed is they had a modular building on a display (the jazz club, or the hotel, I can't remember exactly) and the base of the platform that it's on has two large circles on it, so I thought I could spin it around and have a look at the back of it, but they didn't move. Revolving displays would be great, and they do have the room for a few of them in Dublin. Anyways enough of my moaning.
I caved and bought Rivendell this morning :D Everything else was free with it!
Well done that's class. You got a nice horde of free stuff
Yeah I dont think they are meant to give the brickheads out with it anymore, but the guys in the shop were chatting about it between themselves so I said yes please! haha.
Will try take my time with the build, but that never works out for me
I noticed on amazon there all lego seems to have gone up since yesterday by a little over a pound per set. Not sure why exactly. Maybe stronger pound.
So this month the lego star wars magazine has 2 free polybags. The Clone wars minifigure I was not expecting. I was in tescos and they had the exact same magazine but instead of the minifigure you got the millennium falcon instead. So I got this magazine version in dunnes which I much preferred.
We had a choice of millennium falcon or tusken raider in our local shop!
None of them left in Easons near work and when I had a look in Tesco getting lunch there were two left and both of them only had the x-wing bag taped to them so either someone has sticky fingers, although it didn't look like the tape had been peeled off and put back, or someone made a boob somewhere.
There are a few variants out there all the same:
Not sure if it's true but there is talk of a new Lego pirates set coming in July, the Eldorado Fortress, an update of an old 80s set (kinda like they did with Barracuda Bay). 2,500 pieces, around €220. Fingers crossed!
Caved and bought Rivendell.. Its in Transit.
Gotta finish the Space Shuttle first.
Finished it last weekend, its absolutely incredible
Rivendell? Class. I have a bit of buyers remorse as it cost so much, but I am a Tolkien fantatic and i hummed and hawed over it for a couple of weeks so I think I would have regretted not buying it.
Rivendell yeah, ah I can understand that as it is alot, but trust me the building experience and final display piece is worth the money
Did you see the light kits for it? i think ill get one of those as a birthday present or something
I saw there was one alright, looks class. I haven't dabbled in that yet. Someone did buy me the light kit for the UCS falcon but haven't installed it yet.
I would usually hold off for when there is GWP when ordering on lego site. These just dropped there today. Especially if spending a big amount.
Jesus... Over a month since the last comment on this thread. Boards really only going one way it seems...
Anyways, for those left... this looks like a cracking set... day one purchase for me.
Looks really cool now. Rumour there is double VIP points June 9th to the 13th so you might want to hold off for that.
