Has anyone ever gotten the wrong sets shipped to them? I ordered two Star Wars advent calendars and opened them up today to give to the kids and wound up with two pencil holders...needless to say, furious...not sure how to handle it. Especially since it's an item that is probably out of stock...

Any advice?

I'm in Canada and it costs more to ship everywhere, so get over it.

I'm a little concerned about the advent calendars because of their limited availability...

Pet Shop was 20% off I believe. Pretty good for a modular and one that is retiring.

Saw that. I wish it was for a different modular. Even at a decent discount I couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger.

Had to get one... at $159 CDN and I got the freebie, so it's all good.

You'll regret it once retired if you don't have one already...
