Fucking finally got to open my stuff:

The seller borked it up and only packed 1 Ice Tunnelator (the smaller vehicle) instead of the 2 I've ordered, but he said he'll send the other one too.

So I was in Ottawa over the weekend, and stumbled upon a toy store that was right across the street from my hotel. I passed it off, but then I saw that it had giant posters on the outside of the Millennium Falcon and Jabba's Palace sets, with big "ON SALE NOW" captions on them. Obviously, I went in.

Holy sweet Jesus, it was amazing. Their Lego selection was huge, and they had everything currently on the market. And I mean everything. They even had a bunch of the Minecraft sets on the shelf, which sell out within like an hour of being restocked on the Lego site. The best part was the pile of sets they had on the floor that were marked down. Jabba's Palace was marked down $40, the Sith Fury-Class Interceptor was down $20, and so many more. The even had every Prince of Persia set except for Alamut (which they didn't have at all) marked down.

Anyway, after about half an hour of trying to decide what to buy, I settled on this, marked down $15.

I also picked up this, marked down $5.

On top of that, I picked up a Galaxy Patrol minifig, which was the second bag I felt up.

I want to go back there.

Just seen this go down to £10.99 at Amazon UK (from about £20 on my wish list), so you grabbing it for $5 CA (about £3?) is a bloody good bargain.

I said it was marked down $5, not marked down to $5. I wish they were that cheap.

Maybe I am used to Tesco Lego sales right now?

Anyway, You think £11 UKP is still a good price for it?

Compare it to the SW sets of similar size, man. Not to mention those Hashashin and Dastan are incredibly cool. I'd grab several of those if I found them for that kinda price.

Edit: though I guess you can find it cheaper on Bricklink. Derp.

Hey, as long as I can find it for less than MSRP, I'm happy. I definitely would have picked up Jabba's Palace if it weren't for the overdose of custom-moulded minifigs that are completely useless to me. I was considering buying it and then selling the minifigs on Bricklink or Ebay (because I'm pretty sure you could get like half of the price back on those things alone), but I probably wouldn't end up doing it. I am going to miss those tan arches and dark tan roof pieces, though. :(
