I found everything at a TRU yesterday except for the imperial troop builder set.  They only had two of the rebel set, so I figured someone had probably snapped them all up.  Also, there was only one of the Anakin starfighter.  I guess that was my Christmas present to myself.

Sweet.  I'm hoping Hasbro gets the Magna Droid into their Assault Assortment. 

Hmm.  A re-release of the LEGO AT-TE...Wasn't that $99 when it first came out?

My cousin and her family picked up a set of 4 lego pens (Vader, Chewie, R2, and Yoda) at Costco and gave them to me this weekend when they came over. These pens are really fun. I opened the package up, gave Yoda to my wife, and brought Vader into the office this morning.

This has probably been public knowledge for awhile, but I'll just post links/pics in case some of you didn't know about them

There's also a Republic Gunship being released. You can see it here:

It seems like there will be shaak ti and asajj ventress minifigures, and an arc trooper(clone wars style!).

THe Homing Spider droid set will be a nice companion set to the Hailfire droid set. I'm definitely getting one.

The droid gunship is VERY cool. Not sure if I'l get it or not, but it's well made.

I'll pass on the "Twilight."

The tank!!! freakin' A, that's sweet (if a little stubby). I've been wanting one of these in the Hasbro line. Looks like I'll fill my need with the LEGO version until/if ever Hasbro decides to make this.

I've cut way down on LEGO stuff, but am happy to buy some of these newer offerings. LEGO continues to shine and produce the sets we want.

KUDOS!!!

Another lego clone wars set. You could only get it from San Diego Comic-Con though and only 1200 were made.

I managed to snag one.

Anything different in this set as opposed to the widely released Hailfire Droid?

Yeah, you get the hailfire droid set, the droids battlepack, captain rex, 4 clone troopers and a lego poster.

I love the box art, but everything else can be bought for much less.

Since we had a few months off on Star Wars toys, they really made us pay for it this past weekend.  I just picked up all the clone wars Legos yesterday.  Bit of a sticker shock when you pick up everything due to the amount of larger sets.
