FAQ: How much did [some item] cost & where can I buy it?


Q: How much did [some item] cost and/or where can I buy it?
  • Here are places I most frequently buy from:
  • The price of every product I review can vary from store to store and country to country, plus it will change over time as old stuff either gets discounted or becomes rare.  For current, accurate information for the region in which you live, do a web search for the product by name.  For LEGO set info, check out Brickset.
  • Availability also varies by region and changes over time.  If I tell you I bought a product from one place, by the time you see the video it may be sold out there and thus the information I gave you was useless.  Alternately, I may have had a really tough time finding something, but in your local area, there are tons of the thing on store shelves.  This is why I avoid stating where I bought products in my reviews -- where I got something when I got it is irrelevant, and what you need to know is where you can get it, when you want to get it. For current, accurate information for the region in which you live, do a web search for the product by name.  Some stores that sell both locally and online may also have stock checking tools to let you see from the Web whether an item is available at a physical location nearby.

  4. I hear that, BUT I would guess most viewers are in the U.S. so why not appeal to the masses, on this one small point. Also, I don't know how much the price varies at launch. Isn't there an MSRP? Or, you could go with whatever LEGO charges at their stores or online. Word.

  5. Yeah Benjamin, but what about the viewers in other parts of the world? And Lego might change the prices, or what if jang bought it on sale? Then kids like me would save up money to get the set they always wanted, and they don't have the money. Then they leave the Lego store empty handed. Plus, not everyone lives near a Lego store. I'm lucky to live half an hour from a Lego imagination center. This is turning into a debate. I rest my case.

    1. Ablosutely right. For example I watch vids form Huntary, Europe. I don't care about the prices, google is my friend... And what is more important, that in this case Jang's vids became relevant for long time, it is fun to watch the old ones to, without listening about his price opinions, wich has no sense at all. I'm not interested about his emotions on price, but much likely on the set itelf, 'couse thats what is all about. He is a professional, and he figured that out quite clear.

  6. True. I'm wathcing vids form Hungary, and I really don't care about the prices. Google is my friend, I can get them actually. And what is more important: I don't care about the emotional reactions on prices. It is not relevant, and it will be less and less interesting as time goes by. Thats why it is good to watch back old reviews of Jang, he focuses on real vaues.
    I just care the product impressions, which are there clearly. He is professional, he figures out well what makes a vid relevant even for the future.

  9. Do you have a list of parts so I could look it up and buy the right parts. I'm trying to build the switcher but instead of using a slug unit, I'd just keep a box car behind it all the time.

  10. Is there any way to purchase a Lego Police Train? Watching your video with my 6 year old nephew and he is in love with the police train. Is that your own custom design?

  13. I have spent the last couple of days going through your youtube videos, and I have been really enjoying them. I have really liked your in depth look at the sets, as well as your custom builds, which are truly impressive.
    I am currently running through your Lego Scooby-doo videos. My personal favorite TV series has always been the 13 Ghosts of Scooby-doo which had a unique RV version of the Mystery Machine. Do you know of anyone who has made a custom version of that vehicle?
