Bought the instructions for this a year ago and finally got around to gathering the parts and building it. What an amazing model!

FYI that will likley ship as is, in its UCS box, with labels and all affixed to the side.
Well, that's pretty weak, literally and figuratively :lame: . I wouldn't think those boxes would even be thick enough to survive shipment. I'll be sure to complain if that's what they do, but I buy to build not resell.

I'm not speaking from experience, but from a hunch. Maybe if you select the Ship to Store option, then maybe the UCS box will ship in a bigger box of items for the particular Walmart store you are shipping to, which means that it'll less likely get damaged with labels.

Again, just a hunch.

At this point Lego Batman may be my favorite Batman.

There was a different LEGO Batman trailer before Batman v Superman, which was better than Batman v Superman.

Brickfan posted a list of sales in storethru April 10. Mostly 20% off. Some things of note are the tumbler, sea cow, and red 5 x wing. Not sure if any of those are in stock online but if you have a store near you maybe u can find one there. Good luck to those looking!

Edit: that list is for In Store only. My mistake!
