I'm hoping the RBR will be in mini-fig scale and have an interior.

Saw the Echo Base set at TRU - $19.99 I think.  Also had the Venator for $129.99.  A little too expensive for my blood at the moment, but will pick it up when a sale hits.

Saw the other new sets today at TRU - Endor Bunker, Y-Wing Bomber, and the Neimoidian Shuttle thingy.  Waiting for uber sales though.

Saw the new Hoth set at WM (the one with the TaunTaun).  I couldn't figure the real price though.  There was a shelf tag kind of below this set that was $11.86, but the name on the tag was "Star Wars Misc." or something and none of the numbers matched the box.  Next to this set were the CW battlepacks, with their tag that said $10.88, so I'm not sure what the $11.86 was for....  The price scanner said something like "please see an associate for assistance", and since it was 3 am and I wasn't going to buy anyway (my Wife asked me to get yogurt for our toddler, not toys for Daddy...) I didn't really want to deal with the night stocking crew..

It's $24.96 - same as the Corporate Alliance Tank.  Saw an endcap with both of them over the weekend.

Nice to hear that the new sets are starting to hit.  I think I might try to pick up the Hoth one if/when it hits locally and I have the money.  This will be my first true LEGO set purchase (aside from MINIs), so it is probably a road I shouldn't even go down.

On a side note, wasn't the "MIDI scale" Falcon supposed to hit Wal-Marts this month?  I haven't heard anything more about that since the article on SW.com mentioning it awhile back.  I was sort of hoping to grab this as well, because above all else I'd really like a LEGO Falcon.  I should probably just save up and get the big one if/when it is released again.

Thanks, for some reason I was thinking the article said July - but I guess not.  Either way, it should maybe be on the way before too long.

I'm hoping for a large interior on it, but I'll get it regardless.
