^^ £50 is around $80 so it's the closest round figure.

Back on topic: I'm not a huge fan of SW so not interested in the obscure droid. Not interested in the mini Hulk mini as its completely inferior to the giant Hulk mini included with the sets. To be honest, I'd much prefer free shipping for a £30 order ...

lets see how many of these figures filter throw to ebay at stupid prices.

Are the shops to-the-penny strict on these things? If I bought a TIE Fighter for £49.99 would they be lovely enough to let me have the little shiny man?

^Not that robots have genders exactly, but I think TC-14 is supposed to be female.

Also, I noticed that the calender doesn't seem to be, well, a calender. It just points out the highlights of the month without listing all the days. I guess it doesn't matter much, since a lot of the days are blank, anyway. But the US one is different.

^ that's because it isn't really a calendar anymore, it's a newsletter now.

^^ depends on the staff member, but, yes, they are supposed to be strict. £49.99 is not £50. Just pick up a keyring or a brick separator or a seasonal poly bag or a collectible minifig to make up the difference.

"Why does the UK have to ... pay £50 while we americans have to pay $75. So unfair" - you're absolutely right, it is unfair that the UK has to pay more for this offer. Thank you for noticing and acknowledging that fact.

Exactly you guys across the Pond are getting a better deal $75 works out at about £47. I'll be getting both :)

I would have to do this online as I live no where near a store but I notice it states offer only valid while stocks last. Does anyone know if you find out for certain that you will receive the minifigure as you purchase online. I wouldn't usualy buy from the store as you can always find a better price but the Star wars TC14 figure would cost about £30 anyway so would make sense to spend a few quid more to get a £50 set

Anyone from the US who complains about unfair distribution of exclusives or pricing, remember that you almost always pay about two thirds of the price people in the UK do.

I am looking forward to these two figures a lot. TC-14 is a great figure to have, droids are always useful for being background characters in MOCs and the Hulk Minifigure is also looking fantastic.

I am looking forward to the figures. The new hulk is infinately better than the big chunky duplo type one.

@mission_zed Not interested in the mini Hulk mini as its completely inferior to the giant Hulk mini included with the sets.

As some others have noted, some of us like minifigs rather than duplo style figures. So there is interest in the Hulk MFs. If you don't want either of them, don't buy during the promo periods.

Why do I get my money a week before the Hulk offer?!

I do not even know if this offer is in Australia?

I haven't made a trip to a store this whole month due to the fact that im saving my money for these.

While we are on this subject, does a gift card count towards this? I have one for $40 (or $50, not sure which)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Just wondering- if i were to buy a TIE, I'd have to buy something else small to get this, in order to reach the £50 mark. But it says that it must be a Star Wars purchase, so would both items need to be Star Wars? What's the cheapest Star Wars set available?

^ A SW key ring or battle pack will both take you over the £50 ;o)
