Are these ever planning on showing up in stores? Feels like outside of the random findings in April, these haven't actually shipped.

Rogue One Sets Leaked (SPOILERS)

Looks like a bunch of overpriced garbage with a severe lack of minifigures.

I snagged a First Order Battle Pack yesterday along with some clearanced City sets at my local LEGO Store to get the Captain America motorcycle polybag. The manager told me the summer SW sets would be in stock around June 20th.

Still need to finish off the TFA line, but I'll probably pick up most of the sets on Amazon throughout the summer.

Over the last few months I've picked up Joker, Harley Quinn, Penguin, and Man Bat, and today I finally got a Catwoman. Amazon got a restock, and it's an obvious 2nd issue since they got rid of the exposed hip joints that plagued the first wave, but it looks great with the upgrade, and otherwise is exactly the same as the first issue. Plus I think Catwoman is the hardest figure to find from this line, behind the two Batman figures.

I plan on getting Phantasm, Riddler, Robin, and Tim Drake Robin through the summer, and then the new waves with Bullock, Ras Al Ghul, etc. apparently hit in November.

Got Mace Windu in the mail yesterday. Probably the best likeness of the SH Figuarts figures so far. It looks just like a pissed off Samuel L. Jackson!

Isn't Marvel rebooting again this fall, not even a year after their last failed reboot? This is why I don't read their comics.

That's why a lot of the troopers wind up pegwarming too... hard to justify army building at 1.5 times the size and at $20 a pop. Better to just leave them on the pegs and grab the main characters.

Personally I'll probably wind up passing on this since I'm not a fan of the Hasbro 6 inch Astromech sculpt. It's very undersized.

Some people on Reddit ordered this from the Disney Parks app, and it was shipped to them in a bag. MOMC collectors beware!

Finished up another good deal with Jesse about a week ago. Thanks for helping me grab some Kmart exclusives!

Thanks to Pete for helping me (and several other posters) out with the May the 4th Disney droid! Super fast shipping and great communication!

Battlefront 2 Coming in 2017

Next year we’ll see Star Wars battlefront back with bigger and better worlds, because we now have the new movies to work off of, not just the historical movies that we used before.

Yeah, because we saw SO much fighting between the Resistance ground soldiers and First Order Stormtroopers in TFA. They are absolutely determined to not have any sort of prequel content in these games. Ridiculous. I'll pick the sequel up when it hits the clearance shelf, where Battlefront has been since January.

That same polybag will be free with $35+ purchases at LEGO Stores (and LEGO Shop) during Memorial Day weekend.

Good news for people like me, whose TRUs never stock the exclusive polybags. ::)

I don't mind you asking at all - I paid $239 in a Buy-it-now from a seller with good reputation. There are some sellers that have it for cheaper Buy-it-now - but their feedback was either non-existent or had some blemishes, so I am okay with paying a bit more.

Oh nice! Sounds like a good deal. I had read reports that the set was being sold for over $500, and that the minimalist Hoth poster some LEGO Stores gave out was going for as much as $800! At that point, it would cost less than $50 to just buy the parts online and build the set yourself.

I am curious as to what the criteria was for getting the invite, not that I feel that I should have been entitled to one or anything, but if there is something I could do, purchasing behavior-wise, to put myself higher up in the running, that would be great to know. For example, when I buy from Lego it is a mix between going to the nearest store and ordering online, was this based purely on frequency of purchasing from my nearest store? If so, maybe I need to make the trek over to that store more often.

I have no idea, and I don't believe anyone does. All I know is that you have to be a VIP member and rumor is that you have to spend thousands in the actual LEGO Store. Which is possible if your store has a great selection (mine rotates select sets in and out; right now they only have TFA sets in the SW section) or you don't care about discounts (Amazon and Target frequently run sales... LEGO doesn't). They do these special events pretty often too, like at Black Friday (opening up an hour early so VIP invites can have early access to sets) but despite usually making a monthly trek to my store, I've never gotten an invite.

This is apparently now on the Disney Parks app for $12.99

That's quite a haul. I was honestly surprised to hear the Hoth UCS set did so well in sales, since it has the lowest rating on LEGO Shop's website.

If you don't mind me asking, Pete, how much did the Space Slug set set cost you? I had heard they were going for a few hundred dollars due to the scarcity (and $150 MSRP).
