Hehehe if you read the thread from top down its kinda funny Smile
I am just hoping Lego doesn't adjust its prices upwards.
Maybe the initial "release" was a mistake when they tried to release other town and castle sets at the same time on S&H. I believe all 3 sets (7660-7662) should be released at about the same time.

On topic: What the..? So they put 1000 MTTs on Shop@Home, and everyone who didn't get one now has to wait one and a half (Editi-fix'd!) months, is that it? Bugger.

Well technically July could be one and a half months away Smile And seeing that France seem to have the set I think Europe might have it by mid June (that was the period I actually expected these sets to be available).

No. The people who order the MTT get him in one week. The others must wait to mid june or on the first july.
F***! I must wait to june when i want him. That´s not fair!

I just contacted LEGO.com on this matter, and I am waiting to get an email back. They have previously been very efficient when I have contacted them in the past, so lets hope they keep the standard up!

Can't we settle the "Europe vs. America" dispute?
So people from Europe are getting it before people from America, they can post the ups and downs and reasons to get or not get the set. if you think about it, if the set gets a ton of bad reviews, then you'll know not to get it.

Ok, my really short rant is over.

I know this is kind of sided towards the Americans, but I am one, so I don't know what life is like overseas. sadly, I've never been out of the country.

Hear hear, and although LEGO is considered a universal toy/hobby in this day and age, it's originally a Danish/European creation, so give them a break will you. Why America has to dominate everything these days, even the Toy industry? Aren't your souls enough? Razz

Here's hoping June. A mid year release would be a better idea...
Considering December/January was the release date for the 7654-7659 sets.

I've bought my fair share of battle packs, AT-ST's, ILC's, Y-wings etc.
Lego is not getting another cent out of me until the release of 7660-7662.

Here's a newsflash:

Qzak, Commander Ben and HanSanta, that's some major spam. So prepare to be sentenced to a life of hard labour, waiting on ADMINs hand and foot, and cleaning the hair out of Collin's shower drain.

In other news, LEGO has sent me another reply:

Thank you for your email from regarding the NTT product our web site.

We appreciate that you took the time to express your thoughts about our on-line Web site. The online web is a work in progress that is constantly changing, but once more unfortunately, we have to confirm that we do not have dates of release at the present time. Please keep an eye on our web-site.

Thank you again for contacting us. We wish your family many happy hours of creative building with LEGO brand toys in the years to come.

That's all on this story!

Stop press! This just in: The three spammers are pleading for mercy as they find a particularly clumpy bit of hair in Collin's drain. They ain't gonna get it. Twisted Evil

That's a wrap!

It's steak sauce that is widely available in the U.S. and used on....steak. ::D:

Seriously though, I think its a 'continent/selling' area code that Lego uses. Don't quote me on that though.
