Sandcrawler is finally sold out.

http://shop.lego.com/Product/?p=10144

If it stays sold out, my guess is this will skyrocket in price.

For UK peeps;
Hoth Rebel Base 7666 is sold out at S@H UK.. but, and more importantly, sold out at TRU.

Could this finally be the end of this limited edition exclusive?

It appears that the UCS Star Destroyer is no longer available via S@H. Is this finally the end for this epic set that set the tone for several UCS sets to come? If it is, it's tough to be too sad. It had a really good run, and was available longer than any other set I've seen thus far. May the Schwartz be with you, UCS Star Destroyer.

Six years and a color palette change. Yep. That's a pretty good run, alright. So long 10030...we'll always have Alderaan.

These availability issues are getting ridiculous. It's as if they don't want to be successful.

As someone who was interested in picking up 7679 and didn't, I can understand a certain amount of frustration. However, this is LEGO SW, not Batman. I think they'll end up pulling a Hoth Base 7666 with this one and we'll see it again.

As for success, I think an affordable production run that sells out qualifies as such whether we get what we want or not.

Yeah, I'm also convinced that this particular set is gonna reappear in a near future. And, like you mentioned, the problem is probably bigger with the Star Wars line.

But with all those out of stock stores out there, that don't know when their next shipment is gonna come in, it just seems like LEGO is having a hard time keeping up with demand. And usually when a situation like this arises, a company should give itself the means to keep up, unless they want to end up with loads of frustrated clients. And harming their success.

...and I miss the great sales on all those overproduced sets of old. Razz

Here, the little bit of new Batman Lego which was on shelves went fast when the movie did so well. Wheras the 2006 sets went to deep clearance.

With The Dark Knight's huge success and the '08 sets selling out I wonder if they'll re-release/revisit any of the Batman sets? The demand seems to be there & the Lego Batman video game is still really popular for x-mas.

Without question... totally set the bar in terms of piece count and price for an unbelievable span... and my understanding it is the most-sold set ever...

I'm sure the droid gunship will come back by new years...and since the tank is an exclusive I guess there's a chance it might not come back.

Looks like the 7659 Imperial Landing Craft is sold out.

I would think it would come back sometime after the holidays.

Nah, the Landing Craft is done. Its been clearanced out just about everywhere and the only stores I see that ever have any are Toys R Us's. Its been out for a while, so I can't imagine that one will be back, but, who knows.

It was mostly interesting for the quantity of figs. But then they released the small imperial dropship battlepack. That killed it for sure.

After checking under Episode I and The Clone Wars, it seems the 7662 MTT is gone from S@H. A lady was looking for it at TRU yesterday and i told her to try Lego's website. Oops.

I thought they might repackage it in a white CW box and keep it around for another year.

OMG. It seriously chaps me when shop@home does that. It's almost like they're playing games with you when they continually change the availability of sets. I understand circumstances change with specific sets, and its really not their fault, but it throws me off when there is a set I really would like to build, but don't know when I should buy.

I'm sure it's gone forever now. It came out a long time ago. I just sold one MISB to somebody for $30 a little while ago....I probably shoulda just kept it for a while.
