If anyone is looking for this set, it is now out of stock in most Smyths, but Argos have it for €12.49.
For anyone who flies regularly with Aer Lingus the new Aerclub is now available for sign-ups. You might be wondering why I am mentioning it here but retail purchases through the Aerclub portal attract Avios air miles. One of the participating retailers is Lego.com. Argos is another.
Tesco Direct have just started another 3 for 2, third time in the last few weeks! Users of Parcel Motel / Parcel Wizard / Address Pal etc may be able to get some bargains or you can click and collect at a store in NI.
I'd like to get the Volvo excavator but don't have the appetite for 3 sets at the moment.
If there are two more people in the same position, looking for a set between €85 and €95 we can buy together.
Ideally someone who's coming to the Nealons event or Raheny.
We found a fantastic toy store in the small Louth town of Dunleer. They have a big selection, though a relatively small LEGO area (but quite well stocked - they have a great selection of Architecture sets, for example). The owner said they would love to have a bigger LEGO section, but they can't get enough stock off LEGO.
Anyway, I picked up this:
for €99, which is normal retail price, but it's been OOP a couple of years, so not a bad price. They have a couple of more if anyone's interested. I noticed a couple of other OOP sets too.
I had to move all my Lego twice over the last couple of months which made me realise that I had far too much. I have loads of unopened boxes, mostly duplicates of sets I have opened and “unmissable” bargains or sets that had some useful parts for a MOC that never got used etc., so I have opened a Bricklink shop! I am probably mad
The store is www.XSBricks.com
There are over 20,000 new parts listed and I hope to get that to over 50,000 in the next few weeks. I just added 7783 - The Batcave: The Penguin and Mr. Freeze's Invasion.
There are over 300 polys and early Mixel series sets, I don't plan to list large sets due to postal costs.
To generate some feedback I am offering Brick.ie members 15% off orders for the next week and free postage in Ireland on orders over €30. If ordering please mention Brick.ie in the comments
It is not me, and I am not getting any commission out of this, I am just passing on the information.
A brother of a Work Colleague of mine is looking to sell a large quantity of lego, over 200Kg, quickly.
He also has a lot of Star Wars sets, MSIB.
At the moment it is stored in a school classroom, and he needs to be out of it by next Monday.
He has a lot of the loose LEGO sorted by colour in large lots.
If anyone is interested I can pass on the contact details.
This is likely to be of note to the Fenz's at the very least:
Not sure how soon it'll reopen or anything else details-wise really.
Do many users here have a favourite store(s) they use frequently on Bricklink?
I found one store in Kerry which has no added fees and is very fair with regards to postage. Sometimes though they don't have all the pieces I need and I have to shop elsewhere.
Are they any Irish stores ye would recommend? (I prefer to buy from Irish stores where possible).
For anyone that missed their very brief appearance on S@H they are back in stock. They moved from "Sold Out" to "Temporarily Out of Stock" on Monday so I guess LEGO did a second run.
