I heard they were releasing a Lego Solar Sailor.

New 09 Sets

I hope Hasbro throws us a bone on one or two of those sets.

LEGO is something I've always been interested in getting into, but just haven't been able to because of the budget.  Those sets all look pretty spiffy, but I like the OT ones in particular.  As far as the more CW-centric ones, like you said, hopefully we get Hasbro versions of some of those.  I've still been on a quest to get LEGO minifigs of some of the main core characters of the OT, so I keep my eye out if they put out any affordable smaller sets that include any of those.  Either way, those sets look pretty nice.

The Y-Wing is insane looking.  Very big set.

The Hoth set is the kind of thing that almost sucks me back into LEGO...  Same with the Endor Bunker, but the Hoth set looks more army buildable.  That stuff just makes me wanna get into it all over again.

That would go great next to last year's Y-Wing.  Which was 454 pieces, if I read the box right this one has 567.  I bet most of those are in the body panels.  Some very cool sets coming this year...

The Lego Solar Sailor is the set, which I'm really the most anxious of getting.  Finally they made a peach-skinned Lego figure of Count Dooku/Darth Tyranus.

I was looking at the Solar Sailor set at TRU yesterday and I have to say it was very disappointing. Not sure how they could have improved it, but.....

Still sucks that it doesn't have the sail and the fact that it's way overpriced doesn't help much either.

Noticed that one of my local Targets put out an entire endcap of CW LEGO today.  Hopefully that means a good sale next week.

I think its a salesplan endcap that is up in all the stores (or will be) so I'm guessing it will be "Temporary Price Cut" soon.

Blah blah...no LEGO sale or TPC or whatever at Target this week.  Just a shiny new endcap.

TPCs start on Tuesdays. So check tomorrow.
