Greater Cincinnati area:

Last night at 8:00, Fields-Ertel Target had 2008 Troop packs, and rest of line except Rogue Shadow, Grevious, $20 ATST, Landing Craft, maybe some 7256, MTT, and Indiana Jones (except temple escape). (no sales)

Last I checked, West Chester, Bridgewater, Tri-county, and Northgate had no star wars, but that was Wed-thurs.

I was at LEGOLAND in the Mall of America (Bloomington, MN) on Saturday, and they had all the new sets (and also the V-Wing). I didn't pick any up, as I recently splurged when the Hoth set and Jabba's Sail Barge briefly re-appeared on S@H before Christmas.

I recieved an email from TRU at 9:15 saying that the Hoth Rebel Base was Back in stock online, however when I went to the site at 10:15 it said they were out of stock. Did anyone else get the email (which I requested) or make a purchase this morning? I guess someone might try calling them to place an order.

Also, has anyone received a shipping cofirmation of the 2008 sets from S@H? I notice they all say "Preorder this item today, will ship by 2 Jan 2008" which is a blatant lie since they couldn't have predicted your order and sent it yesterday.

S@H is good for me, the shipping cost is less than the two tanks of gas to drive to the nearest Lego store. I just wish they would be more careful when saying something is in stock or that it will ship by a certain date.

Now shipped, so I'm sure that it's the same for most of you who preordered from S@H.

It's too bad lego had to change their main colors a couple years ago...(i.e. dark/light gray, brown etc) Some of the new sets would have a chance at being pretty cool.

The Target on Gandy Blvd in Tampa, Florida had all of the new Star Wars/Sponge Bob/Creator/Mars Mission sets in stock.

The Target in Bloomingdale had all of the 2008 sets including all of the Indy lineup.

I was drooling but I will wait until I go to Disney's Lego Store in Orlando where I can get my loyalty stamps and maybe even some exclusives.Wink

UK Spot ...

Woolworths had the BPs and Anakins Starfighter (in Portsmouth) ... suspect bigger stores may have the other sets too. They had the Indianna Jones sets too.

Argos catalogue is out today and they have the Rogue Shadown, AT-AP, Battle Packs, Anakin starfighter and walking AT-AT. Interestingly the AT-AT is described as having a remote control ... but I'm not sure I believe that. Does this look like a usual Lego remote control???

UK spot

My local Woolworth's which only gets the stuff from years back
(they still have a few v wings left in there) had both battle packs
and Indianna Jones motorcycle chase I only had 15 so I picked
up the rebel battle pack. They were all 8.99. Oh yeah and they
had some of the new exo force sets.

for me this is a huge improvement from last year (probably
made it one of these year resolutions Very Happy)

Is this set an exclusive? The packaging I have seen says limited edition and your use of the word exclusive leads me to believe that it is (presumably an exclusive to TRU) Just curious

For all of you located in the Orland Park area of Illinois, I stopped by your local TRU and saw the new 7041 Troll Battle Wheel. I noticed it hasn't even been put on S@H.

That was my interpretation of the term "limited edition" based on previous experience.
