79004 - Barrel Escape

241 posts in this topic

Is this a scam? Why are there so many of these things? Can they also do it with the Funhouse escape? :)

There have been similar deals but nothing that brought them down to 50% off like this. It's really more of a mistake/loophole/glitch that is allowing the $25 off $100 which is supposed to only be on regular priced items.

Geebus.....should I get 4 more? While I'm talking, you guys are loading up. :) This is an extreme fire sale according to Canadian pricing. The question is how many I can dump into Canada? Will there be enough buyers?

For all the lego resellers/investors not residing in the usa .. just move to the usa solve all your probelms lol

No need for me to do that. I just do my regular pickups in the US and sell them for 50% markup without waiting for the items to discontinue, even better.

90% of my money I make are from parting current sets. I use that money to buy sets for investment .. win win

I'm doing the same thing. Flip enough of these sets, then use the profits to buy investment sets, rinse and repeat. :)

I'm just wondering whether TRU will actually deliver the goods.

I'm going to build a mountain with these barrel escapes and have the barrels roll down the mountain like a waterfall. Going to get another 10 more.

It doesn't seem to let me buy any more. I got 4 from each of my ebay accounts. When i add more it says either it's unavailable or something like that. But the listing is still active and it keeps showing more is sold.

TRU has set a limit of 4 per person which is probably why they have this one listing going on and on. Probably figured out people were using the multiple listings to get around the limit.

If you bought in lots of 4, you'll get the job done. :) TRU has to deliver as promised and money back guaranteed, win-win.

No, just enter buy it now for 4 per purchase. That's what I did.

I've got to believe TRU is dumping this set because it sold poorly at their outrageous price. Too bad no one told them the scene is from the movie that came out last week. Oops! I think there is plenty of money to be made on this set in the future. Even with all of these being sold it's just so few in comparison to other sets, like Weathertop that are still rotting in retail settings after being EOL for 6 months

That's what I'm doing, but no go. No worries, I'm ok with 8.

Hmm.....I guess 8 is a good number. :) It's a lucky chinese number. That means your buyers will be chinese.
