Buying Lego in Ireland

Apparent Smyths discount weekend this weekend

Have heard some rumours of this, will check tomorrow to see if they've booked ad copy for it... 20% off most stuff if it is.

Series 14 collectable minifigs

I don't think anyone has mentioned seeing the monster minifigs in the wild...

I saw them in Argos yesterday.

However at €3.50 each, I'll wait till somewhere has a multi buy offer. Smiling

Collectible Minifigures sealed case?

I'd like to buy a sealed case of the new Series 14 CMFs. How does one go about this? Will a shop sell me one? I can't seem to find the option on S@H either.

cheers.

Irish Bricklink shops?

Does any of you have a Bricklink shop? I'm looking to buy some bricks and I'd like to shop local, if I can. There's a pcbricks shop run by a dragal, but those names don't correspond to anyone on here.

cheers.

Toys R Us in Northern Ireland

I was passing through NI this weekend and stopped at the Toys R Us in Derry. They had some of the new City Space and Deep Sea sets. They also were having a special on collectible minifigs, buy 3 for the price of 2, which was €2.49 each. If anyone is going to be near a TRU then it may be worth a stop.

Flatiron Architecture set

Someone once asked me about bringing them the Flatiron Architecture from the USA in case it wasn't sold in Europe. Well, it looks like it should be at Smyth's soon.

Polybags in UK Daily Mail for early May

Not sure if this is the right forum, but I found a mention of Polybags coming in the Daily Mail in the UK for early May. Does that mean that they could be here in the ROI too?

I'm going to be in England May3-5th at Legoland, hopefully it happens then and I can get a bunch.

Toys "R" Us

Hi all.

There is an article in the Buisness section of today's Irish Independent about the possibility of Toys "R" Us moving into Ireland.

Very short article online.

http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/toys-r-us-to-open-six-stores-here-31126688.html

More detail in the printed paper, plan to open 6 stores "in dublin and other parts of the country".

Article also mentions that they will be competion for Smyths Toys.

Regards,
Niall.

Tubs of bricks at Smartspot

Smartspot shops are selling 1.5kg tubs of used Lego for €25, and buying it at €10/kg. How does that price sound? I'm wondering if there's going to be some good bits in there, minifigs perhaps. I may stop by the Navan shop to see what they have.

Actually, I crunched some numbers and that's the best deal per kg of Lego around.

There's a Lego Classic set with 580 pieces at Smyths on sale for €27. Someone on donedeal.ie is selling 1.13kg for €25, and someone else is selling only 300 pieces for €30 in Carlow. 1.5kg, or around 1200 pieces, for €25 looks like a bargain. Assuming that the tub isn't half full or filled with Duplo.

Easons LEGO

I was looking at the selection of sets available in Easons. Some of the prices are around the same as Smyths and Argos, although I noticed some that are cheaper, like the new Star Wars battle packs for €14.99 and the Easter Bunny set for €7.99. Easons loyalty card system is also useful for saving on LEGO purchases. For every 250 points collected, €2.50 can be taken off an Easons purchase.
