The style of magnet that is used was phased out in 2008. The Lego group was concerned that children could swallow the magnets and hurt themselves. The most common use was to couple train cars together, so Lego designed a new train buffer bar that had an integrated magnet.What, Lego sets don't have magnets anymore?
I'm not sure which is crazier -- the giant Lego sets that are actually tempting, or the ones where they made a giant set that no one wants.But the price
REAL tempted though.
It's would be 30-35€ if it had been offered at retail, which I would have preferred. I had a Lego purchase planned for January 1st, but it wasn't anywhere close to the threshold required to get the "free" set. Ultimately, I couldn't justify stretching the budget just to get this set.That is a set that should cost 20€ at most.
In December '01, I met Mr. Z when we saw Fellowship of the Ring opening weekend. This March will mark 20 years since our first date. I looooove this set (Fellowship is still my favorite of the LotR trilogy), but I can NOT justify a $500 price tag. That said, it is so pretty and so tempting!10316 Rivendell
