Pet Shop

The Pet Shop is shipping already from shop.LEGO.com. It's $149.99 in the USA and £119.99 in the UK.

Boy, it's an expensive month, what with PotC, Alien Conquest and the May the Fouth offers -- my credit card must be having a heart attack!

If there's still room on yours, here's direct links to the shop: USA | UK.

Sad face :(

If I had known about this set, I would have definitely waited on the Alien Conquest and Kingdoms. But next month is my bday, so that's an excuse to drive a long ways to the Lego store.

Been a lucky month so far with my girl-friend not seeing all the boxes that I got last week - Tantive IV from Lego and a number of Pixar Cars 2 for my son. She knows about the Pet Shop order though, can't wait to build this one.
A big thank you to TLG for keeping this one under wraps so long.

Wow, I feel sorry for you people obsessed with the Modular Houses. I've spent over $150 in just the past month which is rare for me, so I'll pass (even if I had the money, I'd still pass).

@Huw - Wouldn't it be nice if there was surgery for credit cards to relief people of debt ;)

@Jarod, are you saying $150 is a lot for spending on Lego?

I spent $700+ on just POTC and then a couple hundred more on Alien Conquest/Kingdoms.

Which reminds me, I just go the POTC xbox 360 game and got a free mini-figure from ToysRUs. But over at Target they are giving away the POTC Cabin's Cabin (11.99) free with a purchase of Lego POTC game.

@LegoCoastGuard, what do you mean it's blank? Nothing comes up for you?

It's the Pet Shop set with country set to UK.

@vpustote - I'm only a TFOL and without a job so yeah that's a lot for me. Plus, I forgot about the AT-AT I bought along with Luke's Landspeeder so I really spend $250.

By in United States,

Don't know if I should order it now, or wait till end of may when I go to the LEGO store...

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Jarod, $250 sounds more like it. Oh and yeah, this is the most I've spent in a long time.

@M-tron Free shipping if you wait, it's $12.95 for standard shipping.

I purchased mine last night even, and its on its way!

It looks cool, especially the fish tank but I have no room for it. My closet is bursting at the seams with unbuilt sets and empty boxes.

By in United States,

I have mine in hand bought from the LEGO store this morning :)

Does this mean the fire brigade will discontinue soon? It's been out since sept. of 09 i believe.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@stephenvw, the manager at the LEGO store I frequent told me that it is due to be discontinued.

By in United Kingdom,

saw it built up in the lego store today. It's a beauty!

By in United States,

Already got mine. Wife is out tonight with the girls so that means plenty of building tome for me. Sad I didn't see any of the Kingdoms sets that I really wanted, but there is always next time.
Built all of the new launch sets. Quick builds.

@hleonffu, thanks for your answer. Do you know if it will be a month, two, months, or just this year?

Gravatar
By in United States,

@vpustote I agree that $150 is a lot to spend on LEGO. Especially without a job

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Zackula, actually I don't have a job either. I'm buying all this on government cheese.

As bad as that may sound, at least I'm not spending it on drugs or drinking with it, am I right?

By in Canada,

The Pet Shop looks amazing. I'll probably pass though as the modular houses are expensive and I tend to be pickier with them as I cannot (read: don't want to) spend that much on LEGO even though it is more than worth it.

Alien Conquests, Light House Island, the new Kingdoms sets and all of the City Harbour sets are all out at Toys R Us in Canada. They finally have the Rocket Centre set from the City Space theme too.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Zachula - My birthday just occured and that's why I spent $250. I usually don't spend that much.

@vpustote - I don't mean to be rude but then how do you support yourself, the government doesn't give people that much do they?

By in United States,

Just picked up my today. I guess I'll be working overtime for the next couple of weeks.

By in Australia,

At AUD270, the great Aussie Lego rip off continues! That is USD290, or approximately DOUBLE what US consumers are paying, or GBP180 or 50% MORE than UK consumers! Anyone in Oz who buys it at this price is a mug! When is TLG going to get with the program on Aussie pricing? The appreciation in the Aussie dollar should be good news for everyone including TLG - they can drop prices and still preserve margin unless Lego Australia is paying for its stock in AUD which I seriously doubt. Or has Lego Aus failed to hedge against a rising Aussie dollar? TLG seems determined to drop the ball on this one. They are going to kill Lego as a retail brand in Australia unless they shape up soon. People know when they're being had - even non-AFOLs shop around on the net and they will see what a rip off this is.

By in United States,

@Jarod98, I'm a veteran, and I go to school full time... I've been milking the GI Bill since 2006. Haha, why get a job when I can get paid to be educated and build Legos all day!

By in New Zealand,

Skut, I agree, New Zealand is no better and I buy very selectively as a result, actually most of what I buy now is second hand, excellent condition Lego from other adult collectors. I just got a bulk lot of nine Star Wars sets from 2006, sold four of them separately and got my money back! So five sets for free! Anyway this means TLG gets very little of my money. Just saw the new POTC sets yesterday and I'll probably just get the two smallest ones. Can't wait for Kingdoms though, they look so good I will have to have some of them.

By in United States,

May 28th, 2011. My birthday present is staring me in the face with this post :O

Gravatar
By in Australia,

@Skut I hear you and agree. It's just disgusting. There really is no excuse for it. All I can say is thank goodness for Bricklink. I have 2 on the way for much less than it would cost me to buy 1 from the Australian LEGO Shop@Home.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

@Skut, yes I agree. Lego in Australia is a rip-off. Bad foreign-exchange risk management at TLC, I guess. I'll be getting the Pet Shop from the US. There are services that buy Lego from the US and ship to Australia for a commission. Utilize them!

@vpustote "But over at Target they are giving away the POTC Cabin's Cabin (11.99) free with a purchase of Lego POTC game."

They're actually giving away ANY set that's 11.99 or under with the purchase of the game.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@dustinmroberts, I knew that. I just didn't think any other set that was $11.99 or under would be nearly as cool as the Captains' Cabin. But I could very well be wrong.

Thanks for reminding me though, I'm probably going to see if they have any cool sets this week. I want to buy a second copy of the game, so that we can play two players at home.

****I'm still surprised that the game being released isn't part of the top news****

By in Israel,

@Skut, yes that is unfair, but here in Israel, LEGO sets are 4x the price of USA sets (yes seriously) so you shouldn't be so quick to complain. 190 NIS (approx. $54) for a $15 set just isn't fair!

LEGO doesn't even ship directly to Israel anyways, which sucks. Its difficult being a LEGO fan here.

By in United States,

@Skut - a major portion of my set sales on Bricklink are to Oz. They're my best customers.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

@vpustote: what do you mean, you can play with 1 or 2 players with 1 game. You don't need another copy of the game for 2 players to play.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@collectormom, I know we can... but we like to play on different tv's and shout across the room, "Stop killing me!" haha

Gravatar
By in United States,

@vpustote - Ah, so you have that thing where if you serve 20 years or more you get paid for life. My neighbor has that same thing. Boy, what a life ;)

Gravatar
By in Canada,

@vpustote, you asked "I'm still surprised that the game being released isn't part of the top news".

Our focus is on real bricks here at Brickset. None of the admins or correspondents have an interest in these games: we'd rather spend out spare time playing with (or buying) the real thing, so that does tend to influence the news we cover.

Besides, aren't these games all the same bar the theme? :-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Huw, I kind of figured exactly what you said. But I was referring to the free Jack Sparrow minifigure at select locations, and the Target deal of free Lego set of $11.99 or less when you buy the game.

You know kind of like the free Lego minifgure when you buy News of the World or The Sun. :)

*Also, my Toys-R-Us won't allow buying of the Jack Sparrow minifigure by himself. But they do allow people to still pay $5 bucks to reserve the game, then buy it and get the free minifigure.

I claim the position of #2 of people who clicked on "own" as I put in my order around 9pm on May the 9th. Used $15.00 of VIP credit too....too bad they weren't offering free shipping at the time.

By in Belgium,

@skut , I think everybody except Americans (those with the lowest price) agree with skut, Lego should set a single global price and only adjust for taxes. Anything else is just plain discriminatory, and is definately a mark against Lego.
I did order the pet shop yesterday morning though... shame on me..

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I hate to rub it in but I'm off to the states tomorrow. So I'll be getting 2 Pet shops at 20 pound cheaper than the UK RRP and the tower bridge at 50 pounds off. Oh and I also finally get to pick up my 2 new cafe corners and 6 luke Maquettes which have been sitting at a friends for 2 years : ) Happy Days!

By in New Zealand,

^ Carrying that lot back you're likely to get done by customs, who'll charge you 20% VAT on top of what you paid, plus customs duty etc. So be careful!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@jonboy2000 - Wow, that's quite a load, like what xangodango said, be careful! ;)

By in United States,

Free standard shipping with $75 order 8am est May 16 - 5pm est May 31.

that's what I read from early summer catalog.... so if you can wait a couple of days, you save on shipping fee for this new modular house.

my first post:)

By in United States,

@uuesther - Welcome! :)

By in United States,

Seeing this set makes me want to pick up the fire house and grand emporium right now. Love the detail of these sets but 150 makes me second guess if I should pick them up.

Gravatar
By in United States,

This set looks so great, but I may have to wait or not get it at all - my budget is already stretched thin for Lego this year what with all the Harry Potter, Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, and minifigure options! Lego has really outdone themselves. I have all the modular buildings released thus far, so that's either a reason to buy or not to buy... that is my tantalizing choice. I think Lego is testing our self-restraint. ;-)

By in Italy,

Strangely, I didn't see it in the LEGOLAND LEGO shop in Billund, friday.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I know $150 is a lot but if you look at the amount per piece and the new elements in this set then $150 is a bargain. I for one regret not getting the Market Street and Cafe Corner when they first came out because I didn't want to pay $150 at the time. So now wanting these two modular buildings I have spent $500 to rebuild both sets. I learned not to pass on these modular buildings so I get 2 of each. Besides you have 2 years to save up before they get discontinued.

Gravatar
By in Malaysia,

Yeah, good thing about these modulars is they have a 2-year production period before TLG discontinues them...you don't have to get them immediately just as they're fresh out of the oven if you're too stretched on your wallet. I know it's hard but patience is a virtue :)
