Have started seeing Lego Princesses sets showing up on the shelves now post X-mas. I got my first set for my daughters today, the one with Merida and the 3 bears. They loved it, guessing we will be getting a bunch more of these.

In for Cantina and the Star Destroyer...maybe on the Snowspeeder and AT-AT

Didn't see any pics of Simpsons Minis and I was hoping for a Captain America set :(

Just found a listing for new Lego sets that I had missed.  You might be pleased with one of them Scott...

The new Star Wars sets are hitting... I picked up the Death Star Trooper set at my local LEGO store earlier in the week, and a Wal-Mart had stocked a bunch of stuff this weekend too.

Yeah I saw these too.  I'm so bummed planets are dead.  I don't like these little ships.  I do want the set of guards and gunners though.  Very nice.

Yeah that was my first of many of those troop sets. Would have picked up more but I did some numner crunching a few weeks back and I'm poised to spend around $1500 on LEGO product this year. :o Figured I should hold off until after I get some of the larger sets I want.

I did score the small Aqua Batman vs Penguin set... good stuff and I might try to make Penguin's duck boat a little bigher.

The Microfighters aren't all that bad - they are kinda cute and fun little sets to build. As far as cheap $10 Lego gift for the Star Wars/Lego fan you know, they can't be beat.

Getting them have made me want to bite the bullet and pick up some of the Comic Con Microfighters that have come out in years past - would be cool if they re-released them in this format, but I doubt it.

I like the Microfighters - they go well with the Landspeeder and Slave I convention exclusives.

There were so many mini-ships left to do in the planet series though...  Then they went to these.  I'm disappointed.

The only thing that upsets me about the Planet cancellation is that they made the last wave exclusive to Europe, so they'll cost an arm and a leg to complete. Guess that's how Canadians/non-Americans feel about Hasbro though.

My wife bought me the 3 OT planet sets off of Amazon for about $23 each.  Twice what they should cost, but not nearly as bad as I thought it would be.
