Will TRU get Medieval Village, or is it only at S@H?


I would be surprised if it showed up anywhere other than Shop@Home for a while...Amazon seems to get the larger LEGO sets after they've been out for a few months, however, so it might show up there and at other retailer online stores at some point...I'd be downright shocked to find it at my local brick-and-mortar TRU.

It is totally bogus, but it looks like amazon.com is starting the practice of marking up from MSRP. The clone and droid battle pack went from $9.99 to $10.96 overnight.

http://www.amazon.com/Clone-Walker-TM-Battle-Pack/dp/B001LF3SYS/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=toys-and-games&qid=1231383849&sr=8-1

So now there is no longer any advantage of buying from amazon.com. I will just wait until they show up at Target or Walmart. Buying them now at B&M stores even with tax will be cheaper.

It was listed as $50 yesterday, they must have changed it today.

TRU (as I've noticed anyway) will typically have the new releases out before anyone else, and they will typically have the prices less than retail for 1, maybe 2 days. Knowing this, it was very easy to pull the trigger at the $50 price point. Now that it's $60, it only re-affirms my trigger pulling.

Has anyone spotted Ahsoka fighter at a retail store other than Lego?

Over the weekend I picked up Count Dooku's Solar Sailer at the Town Center TRU in north metro Atlanta and I also spied Ahsoka's Jedi Star Fighter at the Acworth WalMart. No sign of the JSF at Targets though....

S@H has the 7752 Count Dooku's Solar Sailer up right now BUT it's currently listed as "Not Available."

And, from the LEGO Architecture line, #3 and #4 are available from S@H for US$20 each...direct from Brickstructers these are $50 for the set, and signed. International shipping is a killer though.

It's a pity that that #1 (Sears Tower) and #2 (John Hancock Center) weren't made available through S@H. Rolling Eyes

I spotted the TRU exclusive/"Limited Edition" Power Miners set today at my local TRU: 8707 Boulder Blaster. $26.99.



They also had the little farm tractor for $14.99 and the Combine Harvester for $40+.

Laughing Kind of... the post was from someone in Canada. At the time of the post, I checked US S/H and it was NOT listed on the website. It was in my local Lego store as of yesterday, and when I checked yesterday evening, it was also available on the U.S. area of shop at home.

It's been available for purchase on the UK area of the site for almost a month now. Razz
