well, who is willing to buy something like this today unless it is 5$ ?

Maybe me?  They remind of what I built when I first came out of my dark ages.

are these gift promos?
the windmill is odd as its retro but uses more modern curved pieces?

Curved "macaroni" bricks have been part of LEGO since the beginning.

Not investment worthy but still cool. This could mean we will get more anniversary sets. Some 80s space stuff would be phenomenal. 

I've been saying this since I came out of my dark age in 2011.  The "Brickset" forum said I was a fool because the Legends line failed.

I really like a lot of the anniversary stuff I've seen, but I think its mostly just a feeling of nostalgia.  I imagine tons of these will be snatched up by collectors and re-sellers that the market will be too flooded to make anything on them.

If only the contents would smell as nice as they did 40 years ago! I couldn't resist a good long sniff once getting past those 45deg perforations. Ya'll remember how it used to be? One if the great smells of my childhood!

What's the production run on these?  Can't imagine they will sell many at $20 for 44 pieces, but I've been wrong before. I can see these sitting at that price unless they are limited.

With sets like 70607 Ninjago City Chase already selling for $16.00 at Wal Mart with 200+ pieces and FIVE minifigures, these at $19.99 will eventually have to be marked down to $4.99 or lower before they see any movement.

It would be nice to know how limited they actually are... 5,000? 50, 000? 500,000?

Seeing "Limited Edition" on a box should mean exactly that. I like the stripes showing the 5 original colours (excluding the green baseplate).

Do we know the retail price on these yet?

Edit: Oh, I thought the $19.99 was just speculation. Yikes. I'll get one each for collection, but that's it.

Edit edit: That was a pretty bad article. The author being just a "contributor" (in Forbes definition, then, not a staff writer) doesn't exactly lend credibility either. That said, I wouldn't be surprised if $19.99 is the correct price...just seems it could possibly be a mistake.

Just trying to connect the dots. but it looks like there are actually 3 sets. IMO still too pricey compared to piece count. Yikes.

These are totally $9.99 sets. We'll see.

If only that truck had the 4x1x1 brick with printed grille/headlights as before. If they want to revert to old proper LEGO, at least do it properly.

No word yet on availability of these sets in Europe, right? I would pay at most €10 per set. More than that is just ridiculous.

Link broken on my end which is strange in that it is the same URL when I copy and paste from my browser. 

Search number 4000029 and scroll to the bottom if you're having issues.

Placed an order but I accidentally did Ship to Store to the wrong store... my fault... it's 30-mins away so it's close enough but far enough to be a pain.  I can cancel the order but would have to wait 48-hour for confirmation (at which point these might be sold out) or I can try and place an order for a different one but it would be seen at my second order and likely get canceled.  Guess I just bought myself a peaceful 30-min drive later this week :)
