Not that I really need a reason to visit the LEGO store (other than it’s all the way over in Washington Square), but I was lured out today by the Star Wars Day gifts with purchase (GWP). Particularly the coin that is the $85 GWP. I went not realizing that the GWP was only for Star Wars sets (I literally couldn’t see the tiny caveat without my bifocals).
Star Wars is fine, so that wasn’t a problem, except that 1) the selection of Star Wars sets right now is pretty ho-hum, and 2) the selection at the store was so slim that to reach the $150 GWP, I would have had to either buy duplicates of something or jump to the next cheapest big set, which was $299.
Maybe it’s just because I couldn’t get there until afternoon. But 🤷🏻♂️, regardless, I got some really rad sets. Picked up the commuter train and put it back several times. I really want the trains, but I don’t have a place yet to set them up.
So happy Star Wars Day, and I will be posting the sets as I build them.
