I always get DP a Lego Star Wars calendar (yes, that's DP not DS...) but have failed miserably this year as I've been working overseas. Anyone seen any still in stock on the high street? (We are SW based), or still in stock online?
I'm getting ready to bite the bullet and order one at the over inflated eBay prices but thought I'd appeal to the hive mind first!

Sadly out of stock at branches and for home delivery 😠

i just added one to my trolley to see, seems ok?

Yes its frustrating as it'll go into the basket but at checkout it tells you its out of stock for collection and delivery.

We got our DS one from Dobbies garden center.

Also got ours from Dobbies. I've also seen them in Smyths toyshops later than elsewhere.

I've seen them in Tesco, Sainsbury's and on Amazon in the last week.

Smyths and the entertainer had them in when everywhere else was out of stock.

John Lewis Cribbs had them last friday

I got 2 from Smyths at the weekend, they arrived Tuesday lunchtime just in time for the after school opening frenzy grin

The Entertainer have been having deliveries of them, but won't keep them for you in store and are always OOS online. Might be worth a call if there's one near you though.

Argos are lying bastards and completely OOS no matter what their website claims.

Check WHSmiths and the large supermarkets in store too - I know our local Sainsburys had some on Monday (after I'd ordered online).

Thank you all, I'll try Smyth's, JL Cribbs and see if the can pop in to the Entertainer

I got one for DP on eBay

EnormousDormouse Sat 05-Dec-15 08:38:32

What did you have to pay, possum? Looks like they are going for mid 30s which is a bit steep.

EnormousDormouse Sat 05-Dec-15 09:23:31

Well none at JL or the 2 local branches of the Entertainer. Will try Smyth's then resort to paying $$$ on eBay. Which is where all the calendars are, as canny people bought up multiples 'cos they knew they'd be popular <must buy in Sept next year>

It's very frustrating. I haven't managed to get one this year. But I'm taking small pleasure in seeing that those greedy sellers on Amazon haven't managed to sell them at their inflated prices. In the past, I've sometimes found these in the entertainer or water stones locally. And I'm keeping an eye on Amazon, in case the prices fall.

Our local Smyths has them around £24. They say sold out online but have them in-store.

I think I paid £30 plus £2 postage, was so annoyed I had bought one for £21 in asda for click and collect but was stuck in bed really poorly and couldn't go and get it so it got sent back! angryangry

EnormousDormouse Sat 05-Dec-15 18:45:45

Fresh where about are you? There are no phone contacts for Smyth's that I can see?

EnormousDormouse Sat 05-Dec-15 18:47:08

(Sorry if I now disappear but I'm still in a different time zone and its time for zzz)

millimat Sat 05-Dec-15 20:21:33

The annoying thing is we had 2 and returned one. Should have posted on here to see if anyone wanted one.

EnormousDormouse Sun 06-Dec-15 15:16:46

Don't tell me that millimat! grin
Looks like eBay prices are gently dropping (couple have gone for less than £30 Inc postage) so I think I may pounce...
