Was it really worth the $50-$60 price for 300 bricks  ???  I love the Defender, but not at that price for so few bricks.  Why not wait for a sale?  I don't think I've ever paid full price for any of my LEGO sets.

I don't think I have ever felt any lego set was worth full retail, but I have resigned myself to that fact so I only buy selected sets that I really want. There are some sets that I will only buy if they go on sale but if I really want it I just buy it knowing legos are expensive no matter what.  Price never correlates to how many pieces you get and SW sets are just more because they are SW and then you have the limited or special edition sets that are more expensive too. . . . .and lego sales are just few and far between so if I paid too much . . . oh well. . . .I will live! :-\

Sorry Packpar...didn't mean to pick on you (if I did), but sales are nice.  Noticed that the Defender and ARC are both 20% off at TRU this week.  Might bite on one or the other....maybe.  I did pick up the mini X-Wing and mini Attack Shuttle at Target this evening.  Love these lil ships at $3.49.   :)

I saw these at a local Target yesterday and picked them up as well.  They're cool little ships that don't take much time to put together - instant gratification LOL.

I finally found a reasonably priced 7143 - Obi-Wan's AOTC Starfighter and 7658 OT Y-Wing.  Both sets I've been stalking for a while (also kicking myself for not getting at retail  :-[).

Looking forward to the Plo Koon starfighter and to the Wampa cave sets.

Have any of you guys found the other three mini-sets at Target (Grievous Starfighter, TIE Fighter, Torrent)?  I've only been able to find the X-Wing and Attack Shuttle by me.

No,  I have only seen the X-Wing and Shuttle.  If you want the others I can probably hook you up.

How is this packaged?

It comes assembled in a baggie like the Target mini sets.  Very cool lil guy.  Guess this makes up for Star Wars being excluded in most of their recent sales.

I tried getting two of these at my local TRU and they were limiting them to being free with the purchase of a SW lego and you could only have 1 per customer.  They would not let you buy them outright.  Bummer seeing as how I have 2 kids and needed two...

I guess my local TRU wasn't as strict with their one per customer rule, I stopped in this AM and they were sold out.  The cashier said they got wiped out by collectors.

Ya my TRU was completely wiped out as well.  Hopefully another truck will come in this week as I really wanted 2 of these guys.

Since I still needed the Republic Star Destroyer (Acclimator I think?) set, I just ordered that on-line since it was free shipping with a purchase of $100.  They won't let you order the figure on-line, but it did show up in my basket with the lego purchase.  Now, I hope it actually shows up on my doorstep.
