Rayhawk what the fuck is that?



Okay anyway, today I went and bought the Mountain Hut set. Which apparently is a 2014 set? The price scanner at Walmart didn't work on it, so some girl with a scanner gun hit it and it was $49.86 Canadian.

WHAT THE EFF THAT IS LIKE LESS THAN 10¢ A PIECE

So I bought it. I have never seen such an incredible deal here in Canada. (Obviously Brick Link has better deals but whatever stfu okay.) Is this thing even supposed to be sold right now? I couldn't find the price marker for it on the shelf and Peeron doesn't even list it. Brickipedia says it is a 2014 set. The fuck?

Are things really more expensive in Canada, or is the currency worth more money there so it all balances out and it basically costs the same in America?

It's the former. Things are more expensive in Canada.. and they usually contain more salt too.

Some of the 2014 sets have already been released in retail Natalya (creator, city and ninjago sets AFAIK). Probably some Saturnalia double-dipping or something.

My main Saturnalia haul:

Pics are too big I guess. Anyways, no Lego this year. I did get quite a few gift cards, so, I dunno if I'll get any or not. I'll have to see if any out there would be good for my army. Most of the stuff left for me to get is online.

Another big haul thing because holiday mail piled up:

I finally completed my Slizer collection with Blaster, got the much-coveted childhood Competition set 'Cyber Strikers', a few bargain bonkles, a snakeman from ninjago and a birdman from chima (both of which were belated Yule gifts).

Went to the Lego tore today to use up my VIP points before they expired in like a day. Got this:

As well as this set, which was marked down to $14, which is a great price for some olive green and other stuff.

Image

The total came to $55, I used $25 worth of VIP points, and I had $30 left over from exchanging some shoes I got as a gift for cheaper ones. So in short, I pretty much paid nothing.

Just picked this up. It's a pretty good set for the price.

Yeah, I got it a while back when we were birthday gift shopping for my nephew.
I'm thinking it's going to be the cornerstone of my Tarrin Federation and Pseudo-Arachnid Empire Armies, just need to swap the dude's head for the female one and it will be perfect.

Also, got my first Briklink Order!

I wish... the whole order was 50 some dollars, mostly for the Rocket Launcher pieces and the Droids...
...At this rate, I'll never assemble the Death Tank Engine for the Pain Train.

Same here. For some reason I keep getting the black robot/alien thing from series 12 when I grab those. :P

Holiday loot:
Bunch of gift cards? Meh, free groceries. check.
Tons of chocolate from my wife's relations who don't understand why an adult would play with Lego? *sigh* check. Already eaten by now, too...
Lego...? *looks around* hmm.... *friend who collects toys comes over* "Merry Saturnalia!" Woo hoo, Lego! LOTR Battle at the Black Gate and Council of Elrond sets! Huzzah!
