I saw at two different TRUs today:

- Clones vs Destroyer Droids
- TOR Sith Troopers vs Republic Troopers
- AT-RT
- Z-95
- A-Wing

Prices were ridiculous, even by TRU's standards. $30 for the A-Wing and $55 for the 300-something piece Z-95. ::)

Can someone with young, fresh eyes please scrutinize the picture of the AT-RT set and tell me if that is an Umbaran soldier packed in? All I can see is some kind of brown blob that might be a battle droid but maybe not.

I do believe they're in the Mobile Heavy Cannon set (since it's Umbaran based), not the AT-RT.

Spasebo P, awesome picture! That looks swell, what a great action figure that would make!

Saw all those at my TRU yesterday as well Jayson.  They're the place to be for everything right now I guess, but prices were significantly more IIRC.

You should have seen the prices for the new Ninja Turtles LEGOs... freaking $20 for a 70 piece motorcycle set

I can imagine, and the licensed stuff is always higher, but still...  TRU is nuts.  K-Mart is even the same as everywhere else and on toys that's not always a guarantee, so it's frustrating to see TRU really hammering home that they are the new KB Toys with the constant inflated prices.

They have sales and all, but it almost becomes a matter of principle not to buy.

Пожалуйста!  Ты говоришь по-русский?  I agree.  Would love to see the Umbarans on the pegs!  Especially with that radiant glow in the helmet.

I might be able to skip the Sail Barge... I have the older one and just got the rest of the minifigs with the Jabba's Palace for Christmas. I think the only one I'd be missing is Slave Leia, but eh.

I got the Republic/Sith Trooper army building set for Christmas, and it's really neat.  Building the BFG for the Republic Trooper was just too much fun.

Do I sell off my old Barge for crazy money in anticipation for the new one?  I've never done this with LEGO before....quite happy with the old version personally - same boat with the new Gunship...

IFett, now that the new versions have been announced the price of those old sets should fall a bit. The barge looks different,based on the first few pics I would say I prefer the one you have. The gunship really seems about he same.
The nice thing about Lego is you can almost always get at least your money back, so if you like the new minifigs better sell and upgrade. If not you have two fewer items to buy this year, it's a win win.
