  2. Two of our more popular threads are "What LEGO set(s) did you buy today?" and "What LEGO set(s) did you sell today?" These threads are filled with great information. But we all know LEGO bricks are about "building" LEGO sets and models, so why shouldn't we talk about it on this site as well? I mean, many LEGO sets that are fantastic builds are also investment winners, so why shouldn't people share some of their experiences of build and set quality that might affect LEGO set values, either positively or negatively? Let us know what you built today and your overall thoughts on the set. Don't forget to leave more in depth reviews in our LEGO SET REVIEWS section...
  3. I've bought about 150+lbs of bulk LEGO over the last couple of years. Some lots more organized than others. So I have grabbed a few buckets and started to sort to sell or keep. I'm finishing up a Toy Story 3 7597 Western Train Chase to get rid of. Missing most of the figures. It'll be 98% complete with a few pieces missing or substituted. Next up I have this. Most likely a keeper. Batman 7888. Missing book 1. The Icecream Truck is somewhere. I remember seeing most of it with the stickers applied. I think I have the minifigures. This was from the very 1st bulk lot I got on EBay and last big one. I had no idea the value of 7888 at the time. I probably paid too much, $500 shipped for 73lbs with lots of minifigures (over 100) and about 10lbs of instructions. It was a mom who was unloading her sons Lego. Definitely wasn't picked through. Lots of Technic, SW, Agents, City and Indiana Jones. She even sent me free another 8lbs in a box months later which has mostly pieces from 7682 Shanghai Chase and 7628 Peril in Peru. Anyways, I'd like to hear what LEGO you all are piecing together from your bulk..
  4. 40260 - Halloween Haunt

    We are starting to hear about the upcoming annual Halloween set. It sure looks better than last year's Vampire setswhich can still be found in some Lego stores at 50% off. LegoLeroy from eurobricks posted a pic of a recent Halloween set which was taken from the backs of the Seasonal 2017 Easter Egg Hunt's (40237) instruction. Set name and # will be announced soon. Allen from thebrickfan wrote up a nice little summary, "From the looks of it, the set shows off a large gate and in the background, there’s presumably a haunted house with an orange sky backdrop. There’s also a cauldron with some food stuff in it. The minifigures include a man and a skeleton"
  5. Brexit vote pushes up cost of Lego Lego will raise its prices by 5 per cent next year, blaming the falling pound in the wake of the Brexit vote. The Danish company will increase the prices it charges British retailers from New Year’s Day, but said it was up to shops to decide whether to pass on the cost to customers. Lego, founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen, has become the latest company to raise prices after the referendum vote on June 23 to leave the European Union. In October, the food manufacturer Unilever threatened to increase the price of its products to British retailers by 10 per cent. This would have affected Marmite, Hellmann’s mayonnaise and PG Tips tea bags. Eventually the multinational backed down, with retail experts believing it had compromised with supermarkets over the scale of its price increases. Apple raised its UK prices by 20 per cent and last month Toblerone increased the distance between the chocolate bar’s peaks to reduce costs. The change applies only to the Swiss company’s products in Britain and was made because of the “higher costs for ingredients” due to the falling pound. The move by its owners, Mondelez International, which also owns Cadbury, meant that the bars cost the same but went down in weight with 400g to 360g and 170g to 150g. Headquartered in Billund, Denmark, Lego used to have a factory in Wrexham, north Wales, but closed it in 1999. It continues to maintain UK offices in London and Slough, Berkshire, near its theme park in Windsor. It has moulding factories in Denmark as well as Hungary, Mexico and China.
  6. Hi all, an interesting question to all of us. Do you collect all sets from a particular theme or do you collect only the interesting sets for you from one line? For me personally it differs: 1. When I "love" a theme then I try to have all of theme (e.g. Indiana Jones, Fantasy Era...) 2. When I only like a theme then I try to have all sets without the old sets that have been remade (e.g. Star Wars UCS without old X-Fighter/Snowspeeder or Winter Creator theme without 10199) 3. When I don't like a theme (to much) I am only buying sets that are wonderful and interesting for me (e.g. Temple of Arjitsu from Ninjago or the ships from Pirates of the Carribean) Lets's discuss Mauro
  7. The teaser poster and film title were release. We should be hearing about Lego sets soon enough. For the 2015's film, Lego had the sets on display during that year's NY Toy Fair (released that May) I would expect the same treatment next year. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is set to hit theaters June 22, 2018. Jeff Goldblum is returning to the franchise as "Chaos Theory" mathematician, Dr. Ian Malcolm. https://usat.ly/2tSOlGI http://collider.com/jurassic-world-2-title-poster/ Just a minor FYI for the film staff, it should read , "Life, uh, finds a way" on the poster.
  8. Does anyone know where the built Lego sets go at the Lego store?? Are they sold, donated, resealed?? Thrown out ;-)
  9. 2000451 - The Panama Canal

    Looking to find out what castle this is in the picture and also the large base in background
  11. Just a quick throw out to collectors on how I've found a very useful way to clean Lego sets. I use a women's panty hose bag and just put them in the washer, on a light wash cycle with minimal detergent on COLD setting. Use minimal detergent with whatever (NOT RECOMMENDED WITH HEAVILY SOILED ITEMS!) and it works wonders!!! BUT, DO NOT put your stickered, labeled, painted pieces in!!! REPEAT!!! DO NOT PUT ANY PIECES IN THAT HAVE STICKERS OR PAINTED BRICKS IN!!!!!! Enjoy!

  13. http://www.wsj.com/articles/lego-restructures-with-eye-to-expansion-1481016526 Lego Restructures With Eye to Expansion Growth and globalization create need for new Lego Brand Group, owner says ENLARGE Lego CEO Jørgen Vig Knudstorp will head a new entity, Lego Brand Group, as the company restructures. PHOTO: REUTERS By ELLEN EMMERENTZE JERVELL Updated Dec. 6, 2016 6:39 a.m. ET 3 COMMENTS OSLO—The Danish family behind the Lego plastic-brick empire is shaking up the company’s ownership structure, elevating an executive widely credited for rescuing the toy maker from the brink of bankruptcy to manage all-things Lego and explore new business ventures. The Kirk Kristiansen family said Lego A/S Chief Executive Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, who has transformed the venerable Danish company into a global toys-and-entertainment force, will step aside at the end of the year. In his new role, Mr. Knudstorp will lead an umbrella entity called the Lego Brand Group, which will oversee the family’s 75% stake in the toy maker, as well as interests in the Legoland theme parks and in an education business promoting the use of Lego toys in schools. Chief Operations Officer Bali Padda, a Briton, is appointed CEO of the toy company—its first non-Dane boss since Lego’s foundation in 1932. The shake-up comes as Lego faces challenges to maintain the explosive growth it displayed in recent years in Europe and the U.S., while conquering new markets such as China and India. With 18.500 employees, Lego is in a two-horse race with Mattel Inc. of the U.S. for the number-one seat as the world’s largest toy company. Lego posted a surprise drop in first-half profit to 3.49 billion Danish kroner ($499 million) in September, saying flattening sales in the U.S. had dented earnings. Still, first-half revenue climbed 11% to 15.7 billion kroner. Mr. Knudstorp, who has said he planned to stay with Lego for the rest of his professional career, will work at the Lego Brand Group alongside Thomas Kirk Kristiansen, a fourth-generation owner of Lego. “With our recent growth and globalization come new and exciting opportunities for the brand, and we establish the Lego Brand Group to look into these new opportunities,” Mr. Kirk Kristiansen said Tuesday. Ahead of his promotion to the Lego Brand Group, Mr. Knudstorp, a former McKinsey & Co. consultant, had earned the reputation of a turnaround king. When he arrived at Lego in 2004, 35 years old and the first nonfamily member at the helm, the company had been struggling financially for years. Its customers, children, were forsaking its iconic bricks for digital games. Mr. Knudstorp sold off the Legoland theme parks and reduced the catalog of Lego bricks available to the company’s designers. He also licensed the Lego name to film studios, creating a new revenue stream. Thomas Kirk Kristiansen, who is set to lead the Lego Brand Group with Mr. Knudstorp, in April succeeded his father, Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, as vice chairman of Lego A/S and chairman of the family charity Lego foundation. In 2004, the senior Mr. Kirk Kristiansen was the one handing the company baton to outsider Mr. Knudstorp. He later also acquired other family members’ interests in the company, concentrating the Lego ownership in his hands and those of his three children.
  14. With the illegal reproduction of LEGO minifigures and bricks by counterfeiters on the rise, I thought it would be a help to the community as a whole to show how to identify fakes and frauds. I am quite unfamiliar myself as to what to look for. Photos would be appreciated as well. Thanks... So my question is this...How does a LEGO fan and collector identify a counterfeit LEGO minifigure or brick?

  16. Hello, I'm a new user My first lego was a 733 Hello everyone
  17. A new lighting product from liteupblock for Cafe Corner 10182.This lighting kit is powered by USB.
  18. Hello, Apologies if this is elsewhere, but I was curious how people sort and store mini figures. Both for your personal collections and also when you have them up and listed for sale. Do you bag each one individually and place those bags in plastic bins? That seems to be the most practical solution. Most of the jewelry boxes with dividers don't seem to fit mini figures in bags too well though. Any photos would be helpful too! Love hearing each person's strategies that work for them! Thanks!
  19. Salutations to all, I am a new investor when it comes to legos. I have always had the happiest of memories with them growing up. I love investing and i love legos so why not fuse both. I'm located in Southern California. Look forward in meetups if folks here do that.

  21. As an American, all of the recent discussions of the Brexit vote have really been intriguing. With the votes being tabulated as I write this, what do non-US LEGO investors/resellers think of the situation and its effects on the various LEGO secondary markets? PS: I usually don't want to get too involved in politics, but this has definite effects on all of us. Please be respectful of others and their opinions. Thanks...
  22. Walmart Lego general discussion.

    The Walmart Lego section in my town is pathetic. I'm talking 8x10 at the most. Just 20 miles away at a Walmart there is an outstanding collection. Both are large stores. Do the store managers control this?
  23. Hello all! I am not new to collecting and playing with Lego at all - always have and always will, especially now that my son LOVES anything Lego! So after talking to my son and doing a little investigating I figured we would start a little side business! My son was always asking when new Lego Minifigs came out so i would have to look them up or see what came with which sets. I figured, lets start a MiniFig Subscription for people! You choose between different themes and how many MiniFigs you want delivered to your door each month! It's a pretty cool idea - what do you guys think?
  24. I didn't see a dedicated thread for this set, so I thought I might strike up a little conversation. I have not seen much discussion on this gem of a set. I personally love it! It's an amazing display and a fun build. It hit $75 before Christmas at one point, and now it is there again, sitting at $75.20. It's been creeping downwards. How low will it go? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CVGV5H2/ref=ox_sc_mini_detail?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
  25. What kind of track are these?
