LEGO 2016
« on: June 11, 2015, 02:16 PM »
Well, according to the EW.com article revealing the first TFA toys, the Buildable First Order Stormtrooper won't be available till 2016, so we have our first set for next year already. :)

80+ parts to it?  Those Buildable figures have a bit more to them than I thought they'd be, as far as a kit goes.

I'm very much a novice to Lego's but I had been eyeing up the Death Star and by the time I decided to pull the trigger early this year, it had just been retired. Heard a new set is on the way and had been checking in at the Lego shop every so often.

Now, am I crazy? I checked in on the 4th (May) and it looks like all the prices increased about 30-50%. For example, the Final Dual set was running for $80, now it's $130. Sand crawler was $300. Now it's $450. What gives?

Is this online? Check to make sure you have the right country... sometimes it switches you to UK or Australia, which have insane prices.
