I'm mulling them over.  I wanted all 3, but I may limit myself to the B-Wing and Tantive IV.

I bought them off Amazon as well. Like I mentioned in the Recent Acquisitions thread, the $23/each price-tag wasn't great, but it was still better than the $90 for a set of three that they are getting on eBay.

Looks like the REALLY BIG set this year will be the Sandcrawler:



As has been pointed out on the Lego collecting sites - the Set Number (75059) can be seen in the lower-right-hand-corner of the image.

I started collecting LEGO right at the time the other set was being retired.  That being said if this is going to be $350 then I can probably keep living without one unless I find a good deal on it.

My estimate would be somewhere between $200 and $250. It looks big, but not as big as the Death Star or Super Star Destroyer sets.

Yeah that new Sandcrawler looks to be about as big as the old one, which I think cost somewhere between $150 and $200. The old one was build mainly with bricks while this one looks like it's mostly plates. Plus think about stuff like the Ewok Village being $250. No way the Sandcrawler is more than that.

Anybody know if we're getting any new polybagged ships for Easter?  It seems like Target has these each year.

As far as Star Wars some store called Meijer has an Imperial Shuttle.  A dude from another site is hooking me up with one.  Target has some Creator and a Friends sets for Easter.

The Sandcrawler looks nice... I'd still rather pay like $600 and have the UCS Cuusoo version that isn't going to be produced...

Apparently we'll get a Darth Revan minifig with $75+ purchase from May 3-5. Kind of lame, IMO, since there aren't any KOTOR sets for him to go with. Plus I was hoping for the red protocol droid.

I was hoping/thinking it would be the red Protocol Droid as well.

While not 100% accurate, Revan is in SW:TOR - so I'll just display him with those mini-figs/sets - probably the reason why they're making him in the first place since he makes an appearance in the game.

Would be super cool if an Ebon Hawk set was coming with Bastilla, HK-47, T3-M4, Carth and Zaalbar was on it's way.

Was at the Lego store on Friday on my way home from work - saw that they had the Droid Tri-Fighter in stock so I went ahead and picked it up so I could score the double VIP points.

With the exception of the polybag minifigs and miniships - I'm all caught up now with the 2014 Star Wars sets that have been released. Next purchase will be the Sandcrawler on May 4th!
