I picked up Darth's Tie today at KMart for $50 AUD
Which was quite a surprise, as I expected the sets to start arriving mid Feb like they did last year.
They also had the battle packs, I seen some of the new city sets too, so all can say is good hunting!

Regards Marty

Vader's TIE: $50
Battle Packs: $19.95
AAT: $79.95
Hyena Droid: Didn't check the price on that one.

Well for any Adelaide people, I have seen K-Mart with x3 new sets so they should be fully in before the end of the month.

In Adelaide I've seen both battle packs, shuttle, AAT and the bomber at Target for the same prices as S@H. Haven't explored any other stores yet but last time I was at K-mart the Lego section looked like it was going to have a new layout so I guess I'll just wait for a lazy rep to come in :D

A few of us reported these sets showing up in stores across the country a couple of weeks ago:

I just went to K-Mart and there was no 15% off, are you sure it was K-Mart or another department store?

If any of you are luck to have a K-Mart still with the motorized AT-AT set, they're down to $120 AUS (clearence) so with 15% off, they're a steal at $102 AUS. Im sure our bargain hunting friends in the US can't get it at that price!!!!
I've got x3 to pick up Smile

I scored a AT-AT today, and wanted the new battlepacks but sadly we had none. Not sure about the AAT and Attack Shuttle, but I do want the Yoda and Mace minifigs, and quite simply they are too expensive from Bricklink right now. If anyone has bought multiples and trying to offload some, I would be happy to make a deal

Hey all,

For the Star Wars shoppers out there, K-Mart is my no: 1 stop for specials and deals now. Not only did I get the x3 AT-AT Walkers from K-Mart, but the price had gone down to $102 each, plus a 20% off (a mistake made by the sales assistant due to the 15% off at the time) so they each cost me $81.60 each for a 1000+ piece set!!!!

Worth looking around each store as there are specials to be had, especially when they're clearing out of the older sets to make way for new 09 sets. At those prices, not even Lego.com can goo that low !!!!!

Great work on the AT-AT, that is very cheap.

My KMart is well stocked with last year's CW sets, and I'm hoping for some discounts soon. I'd love another Gunship.

Seems like there are no sales at the moment across the retailers.

I feel a 20% off sale at Target coming up. Plus I work for Coles so i get an extra 5% off at Target and K-mart. I still haven't seen Ahsokas fighter or the solar sailer in Adelaide. Anyone else seen them?
