Difference in US and EU cash desks - a MOC

Post by DarthPineapple on Mon Oct 20, 2008 4:59 pm

I was especially upset with the US price for the TX-130 Mad , so I made this vig. It's not really about detail but about the purpose. Look at the money and the LEGO boxes.

I don't know what to say exactly... being an American... so I won't comment on motive of the MOC, but the MOC itself.

Like you said it needs more detail... I like the flags....

I know... but since this MOC was based on the pricing... which I didn't want to get involved in... I commented on the MOCs...

Laughing Very true, Pineapple! I also like the flags, although some different faces on the minifigs might work better - how about some blank-faced smileys on the Americans and some grumpy ones on us? Wink

Well Jinja, there isn't much to talk about... just that Lego is nicer to America than it is to the rest of the world....

That's it in a nutshell...

Um, WTF? You can't buy it!

Anyhow, nice job! Your right, it's not fair. Hopefully, if Obama gets voted, he will say something like "I know! I will ask the owner of TLC to give other countries cheaper prices! Then people will like me, I could win allies, and take over the world Razz!"

Joking. But technically, that was spamming. That is just like saying "I like mustard!" In a art topic.

Not really. DP still mentioned it and evanort asked him how much it was over there. So you basically told him it wasn't available in the US, he showed you it was, and you told him off for spamming. Even though it was partially your fault. :scratch:

Wow, very moving vig DP. I understand that you wish for lego to be cheaper... but so do I. Sets that are like 65 60 and such should be 40-50 like there were 5 years ago (i.e. Hoth). I still really like the moc; it raises a lot of debate and controversy.

But the exchange rate is better in Britain so it's not completely accurate, only to the Euro's this concept is true. I think anyway (I'm not good with politics) Lego is expensive though, no doubt about it Sad

Thank you for all the comments. Evat, please be more specific next time. By changing the button at S@H, you can see my prize. It's 70 EUR, in comparison, in the US it's 37 EUR.
