Have you tried it ? I bet not !

£240?! Ouch!
There might be a lot of pieces, but none are high value. Not a good value set IMO.

Also £240 seems to be pretty much the usual price.

The instructions were great and clear because they are a direct copy of the lego ones! I could sell stuff cheaper if I didn’t have to invest in IP licenses, designers, employ benefits, producing instructions

Nowhere to park ecto-1 though

Bustin' makes me feel good skint

To be fair, it was actually at £219.99 last year at Toys R Us.....but think the RRP increased £10 since that time, so this is actually a very good deal, and potentially wont be this cheap again.

You can't polish a turd.

They did when I bought a couple of Nest CO alarms from them. I noticed the price had dropped online after buying them instore, went into the shop the next door, noticed they had dropped in price too, asked if they "price matched themselved", showed them my receipt, and money was refunded a couple of days later.

Thanks, just called them on the blower, they said they would refund the difference

Yes, you will be refunded the difference, but you will need to do it quickly, whilst in stock.

- Edit. Just seen your reply, well done.

Stop snorting the white powder. You gotta be high to spend this much on blocks of plastic for it just to end up in a land fill polluting the planet in a decade. Unless your a 40 year old virgin man child that collects this crap.

Hates Lego, comes onto Lego thread to tell everyone that they are wrong for liking it. I'm sure there's a term for people on the internet like that...

"I DISAGREE WITH YOU, YOU MUST ALL THINK LIKE ME. I'M RIGHT AND YOUR WRONG. I AM THE LAW."

You must be "high" to waste time going onto threads about things you don't care about or dislike for no reasons other than your own personal edification.

Also if you're snorting the white stuff much you're unlikely to be able to afford this set, which I suggest is probably the origination of your enmity.

I have the lepin version of this and it's superb. Think I paid around £70 for it and as far as I can see the detail is perfect even down to the instructions.

lego has higher resale value. some investors keep them and sell them at higher price later.

When did Lego move to the Apple/iPhone pricing model? You know, the 'charge more and the lemmings will come running' approach. Lego 'investment' - do me a favour!

I also built the Lenin version. Grea5 quality, and a hell of a lot easier on the wallet than the official version.

Mmm. Pricey but highly desirable! Was drooling over it the other day in toys r us. Shame kids aren’t interested.

Kids have got that Lego Death Star in the house. The real version. It just sits there never being played with. Sad but true. Kids are spoilt rotten. Might start playing with it myself (only 40 years old!)

Well said, but we are wasting our breathe on the Lepin guy, he clearly can't get his head around basic economics and why counterfeit items cost less. No point trying to edify him

Is lego now like the old train sets ? It just seems there are more and more sets out there that kind of appeal less to kids and more to their parents - nothing wrong with it but i was just kind of wondering who puts these kits together ?

Relieved to see it's the 'real' Ghostbusters, and not that travesty of a reboot!

This threat is full of sheep that need to be woken up and enlightened.

Wow, stunned. £239 quid for a bit of molded plastic. Words honestly fail me on this one.First world problems.
I have voted hot as it appears to be a deal, however I fail to understand the value.

I'm sorry for not responding sooner, I was recoiling from your horrifically witty and cuttingly satirical retort. I was also not internetting. I actually don't consider it a waste of time to go on threads about things I'm interested in, hence the discourse. Pepper.
