    Did they say what the Feb GWP(s) are?

    I know the Bionicle one started and goes thru Feb. But I consider that a Jan GWP.

    I thought mine were ok, but now I need to go look at it.

    Edit: Yep, mine are the same too. Never noticed it while building and now I'll have to pull out some extras I have to replace them.

    I rarely post on here. I wanted to share my custom boxing gym I'm working.

    Dude, you should put this up for Lego Ideas, I would buy this if ever made.
    Reminds me of Hajime no Ippo's Kamogawa boxing gym.

    The site just switched over to advertise it all over the place that it should be available right at midnight EST like always. It's very strange.

    Seems nobody's able to get it to show up though.

    More specifically, seems now to be clear it's a problem with the US/Canada site. Other countries are having no problem at all ordering it.

    Welp it's 1 am, guess I'll hope it's still available in the morning...

    Woke up in the middle of the night learning support agents were now aware of the issue and adding them manually to orders placed, so went that route. See it in my order status now, so... Hope I'm good!

    Just a frustrating night staying up late to try and get this ha. But glad it's working easily now.

    So what do you guys think with this new digital instructions only with newer sets?

    If this is going to be the future, kind of sucks I think, though I get it.

    I only use the digital ones when the colors are hard to see/tell on the paper ones (etc. brown and black in the Bonsai Tree set...the blues in the Starry Night set). Plus unless im downloading it on my tablet, its too small.

    I guess for me, Lego is a "get away from the on-screen stuff" kind of thing, and why I like my daughter playing with it as well.

    She was playing with this loose Lego Mario I got in a lot and was having fun with it, so I picked her up the Lego Princess Peach set which was on sale and she loves it, but its so different! There's no physical instructions, but an 11 page booklet on other stuff (kinda defeats the purpose of paperless lol) then we had to download the app, and its currently doing an update which says can take up to 30 minutes. Im like geez, this is not like the Lego we're used to, that's for sure.

    She likes it though, and doesn't mind waiting. Different generation I guess! She's currently watching her ipad now while my phone is doing the update. We went from a no device activity to using two! :p

    I like the Lego Mario sets well enough, but I hate the digital instructions aspect. I guess I’m old-fashioned but I just like to sit down with a physical Lego instruction book and zen out…

    AFAIK only the Mario sets are doing the digital-only instructions. We tolerate it but it's pretty slow because I set up the app on our super old iPad. When you scan in/add sets to your collection the map expands which is kind of cool I guess.

    The Mario blind boxes at least come with paper instructions.

    Does backorder stuff count for the GWP, or does it have to be stuff in stock?
