Yeah, I kind of feel bad that I got as many as I did (26 in total) but at least I didn't clean them out.

WOW, that's BS. I guess since they're the only game in town that's had them widely available, they can do that and still make money. That will change if they show up in Walmart and Target (depending on their rules of purchasing - they might enforce 5/customer, too).

He was yelling and snapping at people who were attempting to decipher the bar-codes and started telling people he was going to get a Sharpie and black out all the codes so people would stop doing it and if he didn't do it this time he was doing it whenever the next batch came in. When I brought up that fact that with the limit I didn't want repeats he said too bad and to stop doing it.
No, THAT'S BS! What a d-bag. Did it ever occur to him that the barcodes are there for LEGO collectors to use? What other reason would they serve? I would call the corporate office and complain - did you get his name? What store is that?

How did you order 16 if there's a 5/customer limit at the LEGO [email protected]
? Did you have three other people order 5 and 5 and 1?
