Note: Fire Brigade is back in stock at Amazon with over a thousand units to sell.Oh well... :)(they can move that qty pretty quickly however, so it may still go out, this could be the last restock, or they could have 50,000 units, who knows...)
Potter is done, PotC is done - at least until another movie comes out, which wont' be 2012.
What will be the next license if HP and PotC are done?
I'm a n00b when it comes to buying sets directly from Lego.com. I only bought my first set a couple weeks ago so I have no idea what to expect on Black Friday. If its not too far off topic, what can we expect on that day? Deep discounts? VIP incentives? I was thinking of getting the two oldest Winter Village sets as my next purchase. Should I get them now or wait until BF.
LEGO is pretty good at hiding what is going to occur on Black Friday..Although if I remember correctly, their massive discounting occurred on Thanksgiving day at about 5pm.. not at 11pm on Thursday night (which is 12midnight on Eastern US)Usually most Black Friday 'sales' are to clear out the old stock with major price cuts (like the Technic Front Loaders for about 40 USD , then a corrected 50 dollars)That Lego City townhouse was down to 20 dollars.I think the City Steamroller could be had for about 15 dollars as wellThe pig farms were about 18 bucks, if I remember correctly (which explains people on Amazon selling 100's of them for only 28), and if the Green Grocer would have made it, it would have been about 75 or 100 dollars.... We know this because LEGO has a habit of listing sets that have been long sold out with a sale price, but listed as 'Sold Out' thus also causing a frenzy in the boards :-)So anything that is 'long in tooth' for LEGO (been around a while) and still is in stock may be in line for a huge discounted price...Again this is if I am remembering correctly, someone correct me if I am wrong..But I would say look for PoP to have major discounts... any Potter stuff.. the Pirates stuff due to move out for the next line of Pirates sets (at least I hope there will be a next line of Pirates sets) So QAR if around, may be available as well for a discount)Any Star Wars sets that are older lines (like the Republic dropship)... Maybe Death Stars if there are still stocks of them.It would be nice to see the Diagon alley be out there for 100 instead of 150.ID say if Fire Brigade is still around it may be worth it, but then again it sounds like the last batch is missing ALOT of piece.But I think a lot of smaller sets.. If the Toy Story stuff is still on sale then it may go lower as well...Again please note I am SPECULATING, not saying this is will be the way it is... Black Friday may just come and go with nothing going on.... but I doubt it
The Wal-Mart Christmas toy catalog has PotC Fountain and Isle sets rolled back to $15 from $20. They also rolled back the Ninjago Ice Dragon and Blacksmith to $15. You know that all of those sets will be discontinued. PotC will pick up when the next movie comes in a couple of years, but Disney sets this summer will likely just be the Marvel superhero sets (as they bought Marvel about two years ago).
PoTC is not being discontinued. Pharoh's Quest and Atlantis are on the way out. Kingdoms and Alien Conquest are not. You'll see new sets in both themes in late spring.
My lego store hasn't had 10210 on the shelves in a long time. I think they pretty much sell them right away when they get them in. I'm sure though they'll have a lot come x-mas time though.
You are confusing Black Friday with LEGO's After Christmas sale. Also, since POTC isn't being discontinued, it be marked down.
The talk about Black Friday has me really excited to see what they mark down. Hopefully, they will make a mistake like last year and mark sets off 60%
