Thanks for the heads up, I finally snagged one of the main farm & one pig farm! I heard about this sale around the 27th so I was way behind for the best items. Since then I've been periodically checking the [email protected] page but more frequently checking this topic. I had been kicking myself since I passed up the main farm set months ago at a local TRU when the price would have been $56, now I can relax. I would still like to get a harvester though.

Let's see just how much shipping and handling charges they can get out of me. :|

I feel the same way with the shipping and handling. I just placed my 3rd [email protected] order since these awesome sales all began and the way I justify it is, I'm saving the money I would have spent on gas driving to the nearest Lego store that's 106 miles away. Not to mention the transit time back and forth.

Also, if the Republic Attack Shuttle comes back up, would someone be kind enough to pick one up for me? Please? :'( It's the only set on my list that I'm really looking for at the moment.

I don't think the Venators were ever really back in stock. I saw it in stock, put it in the cart and checked out and it disappeared immediately. I called [email protected] and the rep said they did not have any in stock since yesterday but the ordering system was having problems. Did anyone get one today?

On the plus side the Kingdoms Advent set was still available at half off and I got one (call for availability).

I had a cart full of different sets and when I went to check out, I realized that I wasn't logged in. After I signed in, my cart was empty. So I hurriedly put everything back in my cart and was able to checkout. I was really nervous about the Venator but it went through.

Just called, the calendar is OOS.
I keep missing the Venator, but I am glad that this thread is getting updated. I am just going to make it my home page. :-)

next time just order for us XD. I've been trying for venators since Christmas but keep missing by minutes. Those advent calendars would be great as well.

Me too, please. I kept delaying on this one hoping I could get one on sale, and I keep missing it. :facepalm:

I was able to complete an order for one around 6:00 PM EST tonight. My order confirmation showed the Availability as "Available Now" so I hope the rep you spoke to was mistaken.

Since this thread seems to be a pretty good way of confirming the inventory issues, was anyone ever able to score the 7633-Construction Site from Christmas Eve or the 7732-Air Mail sets that keep popping up?

Yeah I picked them (the crane set) up that night. I know there weren't too many because right after I completed my order it went to 'call for availability'. As for the air mail set, they were sold out within several minutes and I didn't get any.

Thanks. It's good to know the 7633 wasn't a Green Grocer type listing that was never in stock. Hopefully this Lego Lottery will keep rolling and they will reappear like the Farm.

Home finally sold out. That seemed to be a slow moving set.
Separtist Shuttle must have come back in stock this morning... It is listed again but unavailable...

That's it, I'm done. I don't care what pops back up. This silly clearance sale is really starting to cut into some of my other hobbie's budgets. :shock:

7633 was never part of the sale. 7632 Crawler Crane is the one 50% off.
