Buying Lego in Ireland

Lego Sets 4438 and 3361

I'm on the look out for these two sets:
4438 Robbers Hideout
3661 Bank And Money Transfer

for my 6 soon to be six year old son! (Birthday and Christmas)
Any one seen them in any shops lately, if so can you let me know, or if any one has then for sale?
I realise that they are both limited edition sets.
I'm in the Midlands so could travel to pick them up.


Series 11

Got some series 11 today in Argos Liffey Valley €2.39.I think its one of the best yet.
Only bought three as you can't use the touchy feely method in Argos.

Does Dublin need a specialised Lego fan shop?

I know Introductions is not exactly the right place for this question but I'm not allowed to post it in the Buying Lego in Ireland forum. Sorry about that.

The idea appeared during a conversation with a friend who found a lego fan shop in Poland. That shop, apart from current catalogue sets available everywhere, sold older sets that wouldn't be on shelves in superstores anymore and really vintage boxes too. Also current sets that are rare to be found in big stores (like Architecture for example). There was also a huge collection of minifigs including all the Star Wars characters that ever appeared in lego sets and video games. That much I know from my friend's description.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but there doesn't seem to be a place like that anywhere in Dublin. I wonder would there be demand for it.

I'd like to hear what you guys think about it.

Toymaster Lego store?

Interesting development reported in the UK:
Part of the Toymaster store in Exeter is being converted into a Lego brand store. Wouldn't it be cool if they can do the same thing on Jervis street?

Free shipping on Shop at Home

Just noticed on Shop at Home that there is now year-round free shipping on all orders over €55.

Bricklink and selling pieces.

Any tips on how to make a few sales on bricklink and finding a few customers? Also I haven't got a clue how to price fairly.. Ebay seems a bit high for some of the stuff when trying to come up with prices. Is there even demend enough to setup and try running a bricklink account?

Superstar destroyer available in Smyths

I was in Smyths on Friday and saw that the superstar destroyer
