Thanks for the round-up, Huw.

For those online shoppers reluctant to pay T R U delivery charges, Amazon.co.uk are also now stocking the yellow LEGO lorry (3221) at £19.99, the new passenger train at £99.99, and the new station. The cargo train is showing as available 1st June. No sign of the level crossing yet. I couldn't wait - I had to bag the lorry, since delivery was free. The trains I'll get later......

PS. I could find no evidence of the Sainsbury's 3 for 2 offer online.

That marketing thing is actually kind of depressing...subliminal advertising and all.....I feel like LEGO is just becoming "another company." Anyone feel me?
