CT BP is up at the time of this posting with "Call to check Product availability", so I called, and they are all gone allready!

http://shop.lego.com/ByTheme/Product.aspx?p=7655&cn=329&d=322

dangit. oh well. I have a few unopened ones left to go with my opened ones for me and my kids to play with.

Looking forward to see what will be in the 2009 lineup Wink

(I am not sure where to put this but I figure this is probably the best place to put it, sense I don't consider this info worthy of a whole other thread.) For those of you who missed out on the 7782 Joker's Aerial Assault, it can still be found at your local Fry's Electronics store (I believe they are only over here in parts of U.S.) for $50. They are brand new, waiting to be bought.

As well as all the other 2007 Batman sets. I almost bought 7782, but I decided to save my money for something else.

It was on sale for half price within the past month at at least one Lego shop, in Woodbridge, VA. (Note: the inclusion of "AT AT" in the preceding sentence is purely grammatical and coincidental.)

And sold out again...

I just got back from TRU, and there were at least 30 Hoth Bases clogging shelves.

It (Hoth Rebel Base) went from "Available Now" (at Shop at Home) to "Call to check product availability" just as I was placing an order there a couple days ago that included two of them; we'll see whether I ordered in time. I do actually have two already, but they were bought at TRU at TRU's exorbitant prices, and to be perfectly candid I'd like to get them for much less from LEGO itself (even with the shipping added) and return the two I got from TRU.

Just what's up with TRU's pricing? They currently have the two smallest Indiana Jones sets, Motorcycle Chase and Jungle Duel, for $14.99 each - that's 50% above list (!). Other sets there are similarly overpriced; it's quite remarkable to find something there that's "only" full list price (though that said, I did just get back from there with a couple of sale-priced / clearanced sets that were real bargains)...

Apologies for the digression...

Given that this is a 2007 set, I'll wager it will make another appearance before it goes away completely. That said:


7994 LEGO City Harbor
Sold Out (LEGO Shop@Home - US)

According to my order status info at Shop at Home my order shipped today, complete and intact with 7666 x 2. Huzzah! Naturally I'm still just a wee bit leery about counting them as mine until they're actually here, but right now things look good. It appears I ordered just in time!

Aaaand... here they are! Woohoo! Along with my Vintage Minifigure Collection (huzzah!), my two Police Cars and my two Police Motorcycles (on the boxes of which they're shown with black "Police" decals - does this mean I got ones with the green "Polizei" decals I crave?! Woohoo!), plus a shirt!

... although it's not the shirt I ordered! Bummersville. I wanted the lime green LEGO Club shirt, and this is a navy one. I'll get in touch with them shortly...

LEGO's very nice customer service has gotten back to me to tell me they're sending the shirt I ordered, and to just keep the other garment, along with their apologies. W00t, bonus LEGO apparel!

Indiana Jones Peril in Peru is gone of S@H. As usual, without a trace. And I wanted it too. Crying or Very sad

Yessssss! I got it on TRU.com. At an inflated price. Sad But as a completist, I don't care about $5, because one year from now it will be a $60 increase. I'll make a review. Very Happy With pix this time. Wink


But on topic, those who want Peril in Peru, buy it on TRU.com RIGHT NOW, and don't give a worry about five dollars, remember the increase for the future.

Curious...I don't think I've ever seen a set sell out before it was even officially available via Shop@Home. I'd be surprised if it doesn't end up on the site again at some point (like we've seen with 7666 Hoth Rebel Base and 7036 Dwarve's Mine).

Without so much as a "by your leave" the Speed Racer sets are starting to disappear...not even the common decency to go on sale. Wink


8160 Cruncher Block and Racer X
Disappeared (LEGO Shop@Home - US)



8161 Grand Prix Race
Sold Out (LEGO Shop@Home - US)

Saw a 6211 Star Destroyer (just one, looking very lonely) on a Target shelf in my area. Couldn't find a price for it, though. I thought this thing was long gone....

No, it's suddenly back at Target and is currently $99.99. There's another thread about this, theorizing that 6211 may be this year's Black Friday set.

And, it may look like I'm post-padding here, but there are 13 hours between my posts...

Anyway, I was browsing S@H and saw that 10144 Sandcrawler is now sold out in the USA.

Well, yesterday it said sold out. I guess that if a person is considering a set that is close to retirement, it may pay off to keep checking S@H.

Oh, I don't doubt you. Just updating the masses. These things tend to fluctuate. When it disappears from Shop@Home completely, then you can pretty much bet on it not turning up again.

True- how many times did the Hoth Base disappear and reappear? 6211 and 6210 did that quite a bit as well.
