I've been collecting most of the Lego line, including the nicer high end UCS items, but only at retail stores and usually for a good sales price.
But I'm growing concerned that Lego is changing it's selling strategies on some of the more expensive sets now, as they appear to really be "Lego shop at home" exclusives so far. This list would include the UCS Star Destroyer, Cloud City playset and now the UCS Snowspeeder.
So does anyone know if these will ever hit retail stores, or am I just going to have to suck it up and pay full price for these through their website? I'd hate to have to resort to that, since I'm generally a pretty crafty bargain hunter.
