Don't worry, I made 10 orders last month with CURBSIDE25 code, and did 9/10 through delivery and doordash. Only 1 true pickup.

Managed to get the extra 10% R-Club coupon. Got the gauntlet and the Thanos Mech down to 88.68 after tax.
But now I'm getting hit with "Your order could not be submitted due to technical issue. Please try again in a few seconds or call customer service for help. Thank you for your patience."


How dare they assume that I'm patient!?!

edit: Got through on a different account. Impatience pays off.

Picked up the technic Porsche 911 RSR at TRU. Got them to price match with Amazon at $170 then applied the $25 coupon on top. The cashier was skeptical and called her manager, but manager gave the thumbs up.

Wow, congrats! I definitely though price matching would usually disqualify you from using coupons after the price match.. good to know

Yes, that’s what the cashier said - can only get one, either price match or coupon. But she still checked with the manager for me and was surprised the manager said yes.

I do feel like maybe you just got lucky haha. Hard to imagine they would price match to another store's sale, and then put their own sale on top of that, in all cases

So I just bought myself the Avengers Helicarrier 76153 from ToysRUS at about 25% off simply for the reason that MastermindToys is sold out of the same.

With the $25 off plus a brand new Rclub 10% off, the total comes to about $118 at ToysRUS which is pretty good if you ask me and you get a ton of great minifigs. At MastermindToys the helicarrier is OOS and if it were to be in stock it would be $120 at Mastermindtoys.

So that is it for my discovery today.....

I just tested the wishlist access and apparently you can still order from MasterMindToys at a $40 discount! ..... go go go....

Do I just sign up for TRU's newsletter and get these future codes? Or are they targeted?

Today is the last day using the Mastermindtoys hiphipyay code....

If you need some power up motors you can get two large Technic Motors and one Power UP hub (large hub and not the train box hub) in the Lego Technic Off-Road Buggy 42124 set at Mastermind for $134.99 which is $15 cheaper than Costco at $159.99. At Lego shop the Hub is $120 and the two large Technic motors are $50 each thus totalling $220 for the motors and hubs. At Bricklink you should be able to pick up the motors $33 and hub $50 at around $116 plus shipping but that might take you at least few weeks or even months to get.

I have already picked up two 42124 sets and 1 out of the 4 motors will be used to motorizing my Crocodile Locomotive but I'll need the train hub which I'll strip it from my passenger train for the moment until my backorder hub from lego arrives. The rest of the Technic motors will be used in my Lego Mindstorm Robot Inventor Kit as they are compatible.

Too bad that MasterMindToys are sold out of the LEGO® Technic™ 4X4 X-treme Off-Roader of which I bought the last one at $225 and this set gives you 2 x XL motors and 1 x Large motor along with large hub.

Now the large hub has 4 connectors of which you can connect 4 motors such as the Avengers Carrier of which I just bought recently :-P

So if you need motors and power up hubs and don't want to wait for Bricklink to ship you your parts, get it from Mastermind in which the motors should arrive next week...

amazing Ralphael! thanks for the tips. i feel i missed out enjoying technics, not a huge fan of cars and trucks, but man, the remote racing cars and trucks look so much fun. i wanted to stick/focus to a few Lego themes past years, Star Wars and Castle mainly to avoid digging myself further into the rabbit hole.. didnt help, ended up off the tracks with collecting holiday, friends. carnival themes in creators, avengers, batman movie, etc.. = (

I still kinda want to get this new Technic buggy and that price is pretty good... I'm going to wait until I can get it at like 40% off (a 20% off indigo gift card at rexal + 20% off sale) This Technic buggy doesn't seem to sell very well, so I think it will drop in price later, possibly on amazon.
