not sure who your comments are directed to but how was anything "overhyped"? a sale is a sale. if the discounts weren't as great as you were expecting, maybe you should set your expectations lower next time or don't have any at all.

Yes thanks for posting the info, and thanks mentioning the ramses pyramid out as well, $3.98 is a fantastic deal for the bricks alone (not to mention it comes with a tan 32x32 dot plate) I looked at the sale with half tired / drunk eyes and didnt notice(Also i was pretty sad that it looks like I wont be getting an AT-AT walker at a reasonable price as toys r us and ebay have now marked it up insane high). Ordered a bunch making sure i used the website link hoping to get the website the referral it deserves.

Thanks for posting everything for us Onions.

Edit;
as it might be useful, here is the link for the parts list of the Ramses Pyramid set

exactly. they could have at least clued us in like "hey, i've seen the sale list and it's not all that great". if i saw the list and wasn't allowed to say what was on it, that's what i would have done...

Some stuff was pretty good, but sold out quick. The larger Toy Story sets were a decent price off, for example. I think we were just spoiled by last years sale, and even at the time everyone said it was an anomaly. This year's is more typical of what we get.

Side note: Target did some Lego clearance this past Thursday, the prices didn't change when I went in today. Last week was mostly 15%, so remember to check this Thursday for good discounts. I got the pharaoh game for $5.24 (30%) and the meteor drop for $9.84 (50%). They also had the over sized Darth Vader light key chain on clearance for $7ish (30%).

Just snatched one Tantive IV for 108€ instead of 154€, plus some other sets. When I received the invoice on my e-mail box, I noticed they had included a promotional "5000030 Exclusive spinner accessory pack". On my Order History, the item appears as "5000030 Kendo Jay Booster Pack". So I wonder if this might be one of the Collective Minifig like packs that are about to show up in 2012? Anyone else in Europe got any other presents when ordering?

Thanks Onions, Unfortunately there is no Lego store anywhere near where I live. But apparently Vancouver is getting a store in 2012, at least thats the rumor anyhow...

And Cara that happened to me to, I ordered the second the sale came on but did not get a confirmation email til this morning (7 hours later) which said the item is now out of stock and will be delayed shipping. Really hoping it doesnt cancel either.
