Looks like the new sets are out!

I ran over to my TRU because of a post from another member on CC, and indeed they were right. The store had plenty of the Hyena bomber, attack shuttle, Vader's TIE, flying wing, Shanghai chase, and a few other odds and ends (Creator, a neat little yellow RC car, etc.).

I think the only new-ish stuff they're missing were 2009 battlepacks and the AAT.

Confirmed today!

The local TRU had Vader's TIE, BOTH new battle packs, and Hyena bomber. No shuttles or Asoka fighter.
No limited Vader's on the box though... Crying or Very sad

Tons of sets in stock right now! I counted 5 different Lego displays and 3 of them had SW sets stacked up high. The new sets were only on the regular shelf, but some new battle packs were mixed in with the older sets in other areas.

Good luck and YMMV!

The only farm set I've seen so far is the horse and trailer set.
But as discussed in this thread, every TRU seems to be getting a different assortment of sets.
Good luck!

EDIT: OOOh! Almost forgot that they had one of the new Indy sets 7683 Fight on the Flying Wing for $49.99! Looks like a real winner. Very Happy

Just dropped by TRU (In Phoenix), and spotted all the new Pirates sets, including impulse sets, what looked like a new Mars Mission set, the Farm trailer set, as well as the new Raiders of the Lost Ark set (The plane- sorry, forgot the name). No Star Wras sets, however, which seemed kind of odd to me. Confused

In addition, another patchy kid(I swear, the relation to the ugliest and most shamefully underarticulated 'toy' in the 5 and under category is just FRIGHTENING Laughing ) found and purchased the AAT, but the thread in which his confirmation is under Guild Member lockdown, unfortunately...

Just to point that out as well. Wink

I went to 2 TRUs today. I saw:

>several new City Construction sets

>what I think is the entire Power Miners lineup (haven't really followed those but there were sets from $5.99 up to $69.99)

>the Indy Shanghai Chase and Flying Wing sets. Really wanted the Shanghai set but couldn't bring myself to pay the $39.99 (I'm really hoping that's a TRU markup, but I doubt it based on the reasonable pricing for the other new sets)

>the new Star Wars sets but no new battle packs.

>a new SpongeBob set that I'm pretty sure wasn't the Krusty Krab but I can't remember (sorry, guess that doesn't help at all)

>new creator stuff

There were several coupons available in the newspaper adds for $10 off if you purchase $100 worth of merchandise. But they came out a few weeks ago and I haven't seen them on line.

See if you can find the old adds.

FYI - Power Miners and new Spongebob have made it to TRU in North Texas along with overpriced new battlepacks ($12.99 at my local store) and the Hyena Bomber.

I just saw all of the new Star Wars sets except for Ashoka's fighter at TRU. The Hyena Droid Bomber was $19.99, the battlepacks $12.99, and the AAT $54.99. I can't remember the shuttle or TIE price. Shanghai Chase was also there, but was $39.99 for a 244 piece set!
I got the Hyena Droid Bomber as an early Christmas present to myself.

All the new Star Wars sets, Indy sets, and Power Miners are at the TRU in Kennesaw, Georgia. I picked up everything SW except the AAT and Hyena Droid Bomber.
My Target at Acworth also has the new droids BP also, so ymmv.

The AAT, Attack Shuttle, Droid Bomber, and Vader's TIE are up on Target's website for pre order I believe.

Local TRU had Spongebob, power miners, creator, and star wars sets. No Asoka fighter, does anyone know if it is being released now....some others said their stores had all star wars set, is that including Asoka fighter? That is the one set I am really looking forward to.

I don't think anyone has seen that set yet, but according to brickipedia (not a very credible source, I know) it is set to be released in January. It is also limited edition, so it is probably store-specific.
