The bricks in the Pick A Brick Wall are subject to change. As soon as the supply of one type of brick is exhausted in a store, they replace it with another type of brick. There is no particular rotation or order, it is just whatever happens to be in the delivery that the store gets from Lego. From Lego.com: Selection varies by store and the elements are ...

Yes, you can. Or at least I've been able to reuse mine in the past. I believe it was $0.50 off for the big cup and $0.25 for the small cup.

Your brick appears to be trans-neon-green, an extremely rare color for 2x4 bricks. It never appeared in any set and it is only traded between collectors. You would be paying over $50 for a brick like that if you are lucky enough to find it. It would probably be best to pick another color, or another brick-size for your project. Trans-neon-green also comes in ...

I couldn't find any mention of a full LEGO store in MIA on the web. Looking at the other logos that are recognizable I would guess that they don't represent full stores, but products available in the existing stores. I doubt Jack Daniels and Johnny Walker have free-standing stores in the airport. I don't see any sign that Jack Daniels has any free-...

You aren't crazy. In my experience, the PaB wall ends up having only a handful of parts that I'm really interested in, so I end up getting a lot of certain parts. I find myself walking back and forth adding the same parts that I know I already have a bunch of just because nothing else looks particularly interesting to me. Several years ago, I filled up a ...

The most common way to buy bricks from LEGO stores is by filling up a PaB cup: There are two sizes of cups and occasionally other containers that can be filled during certain promotions. The large cup is $15.99 USD and the small cup is $8.99 USD currently. This isn't advertized, but you can also buy bricks in the boxes that they are shipped to the store in. ...

The LEGO store calendars are available online about a month ahead of time. It lists the upcoming promotions, specials, new sets, store events, etc. They are the exact same ones as what you would get in the mail. You can find them in the right-hand side-bar here: http://stores.lego.com/en-us/ As far as going as far ahead as the following year, you are not ...

As far as I know, LEGO typically does not sell individual minifigures from its licensed themes due to licensing restrictions. Often, another company has an exclusive license to produce action figures from a franchise, which means that LEGO is only allowed to sell building sets. These may contain figures, but there has to be a real buildable component. That's ...

On https://lakea.nl/minimodellen, I managed to collect pdf files for all existing models since 2010. Even the ones Brickset does not mention. :)

I agree with @jncraton, licensed themes are typically restricted from selling minifigures on their own as that would conflict with action figure licenses. Some amount of construction must be included to make it a building set. You have some options though. In addition to secondary markets like Bricklink and eBay, several Marvel Super Heroes minifigures have ...

That's a scam. I was going to write reasons why it is so, but there are so much red flags all over this website, I don't know where to begin.. Even Chinese copy cost more.

My strategy usually goes something like this: Bring a pick-a-brick cup from before! If you ask, they may give you a $.50 discount on the price for not taking a new cup (at least in some US stores). Set aside what I need before I put anything in the cup. Determine how to assemble them into small-ish structure that will fit in the cup. Find some little filler ...

My Pick-A-Brick Strategy: Are you interested in building this months' model? If so you should pick out all of the parts for that first. Put the big pieces in your cup now. Hold the tiny pieces until you're ready to fill in gaps. Put things together that probably belong together like turntables. This is key if you don't want to end up with more of one ...

Everyone has different strategies because everyone builds different things. Last time I went to the lego store I got almost all of the same color(orange) because I wanted to make a decoration in my room. I also picked up some parts I thought I would use in cars. Other people might be thrilled to see pieces that can be helpful in landscaping. One thing that ...

They always have more pieces than displayed. Ask for Pick a Brick selection baseplate. They will have all available pieces attached to a 32x32 baseplate in the back. Staff can bring you pieces you need and aren't displayed on the wall. I recently got a cup full of light grey 1x2 masonry bricks perfect for the castle Im building.

I wrote a website where users can update the contents of the Pick A Brick wall for various Lego stores. The site is http://www.wallofbricks.com/ I used my iPhone to inventory the wall at the Lego store in Orlando, FL. If you inventory your local store please send me some feedback on how the process works. I tried to make the GUI easy to use from a cell ...

Yes. In the following sites the names of the Mini Builds are in english. https://legominibuilds.wordpress.com/ https://monthlyminimodelbuild.weebly.com/models-grouped-by-month.html https://www.brickowl.com/catalog/lego-instructions/promotional/monthly-mini-model-build

Pick-a-brick is a pretty cost effective to get bricks, in my experience. Prices will vary by your locale, of course, but I have one data point. For a 17 EUR PAB cup, I got around 100 EUR worth of bricks using BrickLink's average price. Since the average price is often above the median, and the median is not shown on the page, I instead recalculated using the ...

Unfortunately the shop.LEGO.com website has a number of issues, and the fact that all transactions are handled server-side and not bookmarkable on the client is one of them (this might be intentional on behalf of LEGO but I don't know why). Other issues are that from time to time the website will refuse to display search results (it will just show you the ...

Could it be this one: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=3001f1 ? In translucent yellow it sells for about $2 a piece and is also quite rare.

Indeed it seems there are two different boxes for 7670 Hailfire Droid & Spider Droid, but it seems the box is the only difference, so if you just want the pieces ignore which box they're selling and buy the cheapest. :)

I believe it's related to the instruction manual format - see the comments to this question. So for example V39 may be printed on US standard letter size paper V29 may be printed on EU standard A4 paper

If you buy the set that has the figures you want, then sell what you don't want you end up getting the figures for free. As an example, LEGO 76000 Arctic Batman, RRP £20 but when on sale £13. Say you only want Aqua Man, you could sell Batman, Mr Freeze and the bat boat easily for a fiver each, even after fees you now have Aquaman for free....

The vouchers available in the VIP rewards centre are linked to one's country - that is, the country linked to one's VIP account. Note that this is not the same as the country of one's account, even though both are linked, and can't be changed online at the moment but only via the Customer Service. There seem to be some kind of redundancy in the way LEGO ...

I would go ahead and contact LEGO customer service and tell them about this. They will want to know as they have high quality standards and this might indicate a defect bigger than just your copy. Also, they are more than likely to offer you a free replacement figure - keep that one safe and disassembled until the one you have is too damaged.

The LEGO Store in Leicester Square which opened in 2016 has an area of 914sq m (Source: Evening Standard, Telegraph) The LEGOLAND Windsor Big Shop is 'one of the UK's largest shops for LEGO' according to their website. In 2015 the website stated the store was '... the UK's largest one-stop shop for LEGO'. It appears as if the Leicester Square store has ...

From experience the only problem from cracks in the side is that the arm is very loose and the legs don't have a good connection to said torso. Otherwise it is just an unfortunate look.


1

Depends on where the crack is. If it is near joints like the legs or arms, then probably you should find a way to seal it. Else other than design purposes it won't harm the figure

LEGO doesn't currently sell the figures on their own, unless as a previous user suggested you buy a poly bag which still isn't the figure on its own. Have you seen a website called firestartoys.com ? you can buy individual minifigure parts such as arms let alone complete figures. Here's a quick search of the site for super heroes: http://www.firestartoys....
