  • Hi All

    Always been An post for me. Tracking is awful alright. Waiting on a brick bank atm and for the first time I'm slightly concerned as to its whereabouts.

    With me it's kind of a necessity. Pretty much every gift I get is from Lego.

    They dispatch via DHL in Germany, and theres usually a couple of days delay after leaving Koln before it shows up on the An Post website. Once An Post have it you'll usually get it next business day

  • Hamleys in Dundrum have 4 or 5 ecto 1s still for €67 - in the display case to the right of the checkouts.




  • Less than €60 in nimble fingers in Stillorgan.




  • Ecto-1 is still available from Lego.com and is only €49.99, spend €55 or more for free shipping and a free gift. Hamleys usually as "only" 20% more expensive than RRP, they must think Ecto-1 is worth more of a mark-up.

    Hamley's in London is the same. A good 15-20% more expensive for Lego than other shops.

    I don't understand why any shops sell Lego for more than a few euro more than the online store. The convenience of being able to take home Lego right away rather than waiting a few days for a delivery is worth a bit I'll grant but that much? Ridiculous.

    Then again, I've seen people sell Lego on Adverts for more than the RRP when the set is still available in the shops so that sort of behaviour (idiocy) isn't localised to large shops.

    Seen someone had minifigs including a CMF series 15 up there for €8 each earlier...Lego on adverts has gone to pots but I digress!

    Do they have any other older retired sets?

    I thought it was retired - isn't under the ghostbusters section :cool:

    Hamleys prices are a joke agreed - deep sea salvage was €120 and only €80 in smyths :eek:

    Footfall in Hamleys is ludicrous, and I'd wager that the vast majority of people who go in there don't have a clue how Lego should be priced.

    I imagine those sellers sitting wearing hideously expensive suits believing themselves to be geniuses for the understanding that the stock market logic of buying low and selling high somehow applies to selling Lego to someone one town over.

    That was my thought as well. Almost like political loyalty :) "we've always voted for Party X, they shaft us every time but it's tradition and we don't know any better". The temperature in the store, the hundreds of other customers, the try-out sections and the manic employees would make any parent want to buy something and get out.

    Thanks - picked up bennys spaceship there today




  • bought this from ToyRus in UK the other day. £274 and they had a £20 off deal so was £254 delivered to Parcel Motel (oversize package pickup). Good saving of €70 - €80 off store prices here if anyone is interested.
