Deal Details

Last Edited by cricket702 October 3, 2016 at 01:37 PM
This isn't as much a deal as it is a heads up. lego.com has the Holiday Train for sale. It is not scheduled to be released until October 1st.

Typically they send an email out offering Lego VIPs the opportunity to buy in advance. They have not sent the email as of yet. But if you log into your lego.com account and are a Lego VIP you will be given the option to buy it on that set page

the link to the set is:

I'm giving it a TU because it's new and it's a train and it's Holiday. It will be OOS a lot (temporarily) over the next few months. Yes, I know it's retail price but this will not be available at most stores.

This month you are also getting the free
70335 Ultimate Lavaria V39

And of course VIP points. If you wait till October, that is usually double-points month so the VIP points would be better -- but there is a good chance this will be temporarily OOS by then.

.An allotment is put aside for V. I. P. members, the general public will still have an opportunity. Buying it on October 1st will be a slickdeal because you will get double V. I. P. points and a free holiday countdown set.

Yup, that's true. Not sure if you're saying that like it's a good or a bad thing. Obviously many people have a guideline about $/piece, and use a figure of 0.10 (or as little as 0.06 for some sets). However, Trains never fall into that category. (except maybe on some close-out deals like for the older High Speed Passenger train lately).

This includes 16 pieces of curved rail. Lego rail is always expensive and hard-to-find. Sadly, it does not include any straight pieces (so it will make a circle, not an oval). Of course, if you have other Lego train sets, you can combine the track into all sorts of wonderful things.

This includes 5 minifigs.

This is not motorized, but can be motorized according to a note in the description. In the past. these "small trains" (Toy Story, previous Holiday train, Halloween train) have not had instructions to motorize them, and it was difficult to do, though searches will reveal many people figured out ways to do it. I haven't seen the instructions yet, but I assume this will use the technique of the battery-box in the "tender" (behind the locomotive) and wired to the motor up front.

I already ordered mine earlier this AM.

I simply posted the piece count because the OP had not. The $/piece concept does not apply to the train sets. This is due to the fact that there are certain pieces (specifically track) that makes the lego trains sell out no matter what (usually)

Not motorized!?!?!?!?! I cant imagine a normal sized motor fitting in the tiny locomotive. This would be a fun set to put around a tree.... if it moved on its own. For me it loses some of its appeal. Thanks OP for the heads up!

Does anyone know if buying this in October would get us the Lego seasonal 2016 Christmas ornament (40223) as well? (I know the countdown set will be free, but not sure if the ornament set is free or just exclusively only available in October).

Who buys this junk? Lego is the perfect invention. Sell plastic pieces that don't cost more than $1 to make (the entire set) and sell it to suckers willing to spend $100 for it. Rinse and repeat every year. They're willing to sell it for this much because they know there are that many crazy people in this world willing to buy it. I bet they could sell it for $200 and people would eat it up. Is it capitalism at its best or worst? You tell me.

Ya, kind of sucks that the business wants to make money. I assume youre not a CEO of a company. If you make the prices and people pay, why would you not?
