The prices shown in store were the same as what KnightlyKnight said - but they were shown on a different colour 'sale' label tag so the 15% doesnt apply - they have already discounted it (not sure about battle packs they might still have another 15% off although they only had the droid one). $59 for Vaders Tie is still alot cheaper than RRP. Expensive I know, but still well under RRP, some might even say approx 15% under RRP.

Didnt see any AT-ATs sorry.

well Sam if you find a spare 10178 AT-AT I'd take one off your hands for $120-$130NZ.

<OT>
I got mine brought bake from the states about a week before they showed up here on sale for $195 on the assumption that they weren't going to be in stores and they were $270 on S@H. I still think it ended up costing less but not by much. I could have asked for something else from the Lego shop if I'd known.

I'm kicking myself for not buying the last 4483 I saw for $160. Still a favorite set of mine.
</OT>

I scanned Vaders Tie at the price check (just for you guys as I knew I wouldn't be buying it yet) and it came up as 59.99 discounted to ~51. Almost changed my mind and bought one for the cupboard. The clone packs were definitely below RRP as stated and 15% off on top too.

There were however no prices on the shelf for the new sets except the 15% off signs and the new label.

Well, i just got back from K-mart palms (checked riccarton - still nothing)

I got a Vader's tie - $50.15 down from $59 (RRP $70)
and 3x 32x32 green baseplate for $8.46ea ($10.50 RRP)

It's a shame I don't want the new AAT. $74 down from $88 (RRP $100)

The only sets they didn't have were the Republic shuttle, Solar Sailor, and jedi starfighter + droid fighter

Sorry Vimes - i think you got ripped off Sad

Wow. I will have to try & find the receipt and get a refund. Sneaky buggers.

Thanks for the heads up & hopefully I'll get some cash back.


Edit - I just found my receipt - and it is official - I am a retard.
I was sure they charged me $147 for the 2 sets yet my receipt says $124.95.
The only excuse I can offer is that its Monday and I didnt have enough caffeine in my system.

What a dumbass!! Me stooopid.

No problem.

You should say it's not good enough and demand a free battlepack for the inconvenience Wink

Has anyone seen 8019 Republic Attack Shuttle in the shops yet?
I saw it advertised on TV the other day (a proper offical lego star wars ad)and was wondering if its here and how much it is.

I only generally get the sets that are from the movies, and mainly OT ones, but I have got the clone wars sets that also featured in the main movies (I havent even seen The Clone Wars) ie Gunship, At-te, and AAT (even though its the wrong colour - its quite a nice wee set tho). Also got 2 clone BP's to load up the gunship.

However the attack shuttle is a nice looking ship with quite good features so if its cheap enough ('tell him he's dreamin') I'll get it for parts etc

Yeah, I collect all sets from the movies ( OT + PT, not EU + CW).

I did pick up a droid gunship, a homing spider droid and i plan on gettting the solar sailor if i can find one at a fair price. But not the sets only CW like the mangaguard fighter, Tx-130 ect.

So far i just picked up Vader's tie from the new range, and that's all i plan on getting.
