I was hoping they would add something special for the first buyers of the set. I really want it, but maybe I'll wait for double points or a worthwhile promo. Decision, decisions...

Yeah, as it stands I don't really see any advantage to this offer, especially if you're paying full MSRP. So what... you get the set first, so you can.... brag to your neighbors about it? :shock:

I really want this set, and having it now would be nice, but I too am going to wait. I already have the free polybag from this month, and next months is kind of lame to me. But the last two years (at least) they've have a 2 week period of double VIP points starting sometime in March. So that's what I'm holding out for.

I got mine this morning and all things aside, the box is FREAKING HUGE!! It's the size of the UCS B-Wing box and far more substantial feeling than the crappy little box they put the Parisian Cafe in this year.

As soon as I got the e-mail, I placed my order, but that was a few days ago and they still haven't shipped it out. :( I'm betting that they've underestimated the demand for this one.

I'd be much happier with smaller set boxes all around. The gigantic massive boxes take up way too much storage space. When they're packed full of parts fine, but when they are more than half empty air space, that's a bit ridiculous.

Have any VIP members been watching this set lately? The way Lego implements "Early Access" means that the product becomes completely invisible to non-members for the duration.

As a non-VIP I was looking forward to the general release today. But when I went on to Shop@Home around 8 am CET this morning the Simpsons House was out of stock with a ship date of February 19th and a limit of 1 per customer. :(

Did so many VIP members place orders that stock ran out during the Early Access period? Or should I have tried to place an order at midnight..? The demand for some Lego sets seems just crazy.
