2 new things
« on: December 11, 2016, 12:04:19 »
I just purchased 4865, the Lion Knights Empire Castle. Troy is selling it online for $689, but sold it to me at his store for $239.

Also, I picked up 5206, Santa & Peter on their steamboat, for $25 from Amazon.

I'm happy & content, but was just wondering if these were, at least, OK prices?  ;D

Those prices seem to be about right for what those are currently going for new. :) Nice additions!

That's a steal on that 5206!
I'm glad that I'm not the only one :)

Both great purchases, JLM! I love that Castle - the Queen has such gorgeous printing and there are some great Secret Passages and stuff. I think $689 would have been a bit much, so you got a bargain. Zwarte Piet's steamboat is a 'must buy' for us for next Christmas to go with the 20-day advent calendar 5217 we got this year (it's a great set too, but only has a cardboard pop-up Steamboat!) and I would be very happy with the GBP equivalent of $25!
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

It is Sinterklaas (not Santa) en zwarte Piet (not Peter, also a Dutch boy's name).

Saying Saint Nicholas is Santa is like saying Playmobil is Lego. Just sayin'....  ;D
