Target Sells 21110 Research Institute via eBay

21110 Research Institute

It’s late, I can’t sleep cause of this bronchitis, and I forgot to do Sunday’s advent. I’ll have to do it in the morning. In the meantime, if you missed out on Shop@Home’s restock of 2110 Research Institute, then this bit of news might be welcome. Target is selling the much sought after 21110 Research Institute via eBay for $19.99. Limit three per account. They offer free shipping but it may not arrive in time for Christmas, even with expedited shipping at this point. I have no idea how many are left; as of this writing 101 have been sold. You may experience a slight hiccup upon checkout where it will give you an error message that says something like “Unfortunately, these items are not available. They may have been purchased already or the item listing has expired.” It happened to me, but I think it’s because the payment process that happens between PayPal and eBay is being flooded. It finally went through for me on my third or fourth try. So if you hit the page and it still has the buy it now button, chances are good that you can still get one. Good luck!

Just about a week left in the calendar. Still plenty of opportunity for me to complain. Or be delighted. And at this point, I can’t really tell if my feelings of anticipation are filled with eagerness or dread.

Official Box Images for First Half 2015 LEGO Star Wars, Super Heroes, More

75075_1

Tohst sent me this link which came from this Eurobricks post. It is, as far as I can tell, an interactive retailer brochure for releases scheduled for the first half of 2015. All of the themes are covered but I went through and picked through the licensed sets and extracted the box images. The only theme where the box images were missing were the Avengers’ Age of Ultron sets, but you get a nice full page spread of the sets. Prices are in Euros, and Brickset has some piece count information which I have no idea where they got them from since they’re not in the catalog.

Since yesterday’s moisture vaporator bucked the trend slightly, I’m sort of half-expecting some other Tatooine-themed build today.
