What Lego set did you NOT buy today?

I went in for 4 cases when they hit £1 at Tesco and wish I had bought more. Got 17 full sets out of those 240 and sold them all within 2-3 weeks for over double my buy-in after fees/shipping.

I was also a bit unsure hence the QFLL so left plenty on shelves. Hindsight is 20/20. Got a friend to pick me up another two cases from his local and I don't think those will last very long either.

Aren't these Tesco only? At least you won't have to peel the reduction stickers off as these have nice sealed inner bags so I sold all mine opened.

Initially they were Tesco exclusive,  then showed up elsewhere.  Definitely at least at asda

Saw a few 31084 for $41 and skipped... Not sure if I am getting wiser or dumber as I get older :drag:

If you're anything like me... both?

For example... I will NOT buy the Mustang if it has stickers, yet I will buy The Flintstones 😉

I am more trying to avoid my wife's disapproval of buying yet another LEGO set :P

I did not buy Star Wars Snoke's Throne Room, A DC Comics Super Heroes set, Adventure Time, Nexo Knights Aaron's X-Bow and Friends Creative Tuning Shop at Kohls.  It was a little hard to pass on Star Wars, but I have had trouble selling some other sets in this theme (insert TabbyBoy's down on Star Wars comment here) and the other sets were 5-6 deep.  The Elite Praetorian Guard minifigures seem to have some value and are only in this set so far.

The Praetorian Guards are in a new battle pack, but they don't have the skirt/dress piece that these have.  Kind of bummed about that, this version of the figure is way better than the battle pack version.  They will hold their value, I would think, but he rest of the set is pretty much part out trash.

I passed on Hermione BHz at Debenhams (Reading) yesterday due to price sticker on bottom of box, only 1 on the shelf anyway.

BTW... John Lewis (Reading) are putting more security straps on the more expensive sets, trashing boxes in the process. I managed to blag £50 off a Bugatti there, but didn't bite as boxes severely cut by the straps. The T1 was £69.99, but it's no longer a set to invest in.

Craigslist post. Guy wanted $99 for the box. Had promise with the monster fighters vampyre castle and jokers land batmobile sitting there on top. Figs were missing, castle was 80% at best, and there were no other parts to jokers land. Nice guy though and it was fun to hold peices of the castle, a set I've always kicked myself for not buying.

I didn't buy it... but it's good that they are finally releasing sets that say how I feel.

Went to my local Game Stop after work with son, it was a slow time of the evening and I talked with one of the employees at the register.  I asked if they had any leftovers Lego minifigures from the recent promo since I was hoping to work them in with anything my son bought.  I was told they had none left, they went quickly and corporate specifically told the employees not to give out any free to adults because of resellers problems.

It looks like Game Stop is onto us...

Resellers are scum to them I guess.  Game Stop is to Walmart as resellers are to scum - in the form of an SAT and/or GRE possible word problem   Some corporations and companies seem to be cracking down and limiting Lego resellers is the point.

That just means somebody went in and persisted to get all of them, told them these are great to resell, or some other jerky behavior.  Probably more than one jerky.

I have not bought the Jasmine Disney series 2 minifigure yet because she has eluded my smooshing attempts, resulting in only having 17 out of 18 of them.  Oh, how I long to find her bird to identify I have the right minifigure.  

I seem to be going down a deep and dark place, especially after re-reading my last sentence.  :( The first part of getting help is admitting one has a problem….Smooshing can make one feel odd and different.  I get the feeling somebody is watching me…

From the Rockwell song:

“I always feel like somebody's watching me
And I have no privacy (oh oh oh)
I always feel like somebody's watching me
Tell me, is it just a dream”
