Lego nowadays are getting so expensive that it becomes more of a Adult toy than for kids... A Scout Trooper speeder bike that cost $99.90, how many can really afford it...
Lego is a rich kid toy/adult collector hobby

Lol, what to do.. still guai guai buy them. cos alternatives just cmi.

and truth is if Lego wants to cater to the adult collectors, they are still doing a pretty good job.. like the new Carousel, or the Ninjago Movie Destiny Bounty, those are designs that I will still pay for.

Until the day they regress back to early 2000s (2000-2004), where they came out with stuff like these:





I will continue to support them.

IMO Lego is in its golden age as far as design is concerned.

Just realised TRU LEGO cost $0.09 more each box set than other RRP ...

So at 20%, I am still paying $0.072 more

I would rather wait to buy it on carousell or shopee at more than 25% discount. Delayed gratification saves money haha

Don't think so. Ever since they got big competition from lepin, Lego have been stocking the shops very well and scalpers sweeping stocks are virtually gone coz of lepin

Lepin may copy ... but at $199.90 ... is really a good price point for a genuine LEGO set with so many part count

Yep, the scalpers seem to have disappeared but no, I don't think it's due to Lepin. It's not like sinkies can't afford the real stuff. Maybe those who don't bother will buy lepin.
