If it's $90 at Tru, hopefully it will be $70 MSRP

^ But I believe it's a TRU exclusive, so it wouldn't be available anywhere else. I guess the only possible good news is that if you don't mind waiting, TRU sometimes has sales on certain Star Wars sets, including its own exclusives. I know the TRU exclusive Echo Base was on sale recently.

TRU has all the Lego sets on "sale" right now so the prices are reflecting their "sale" prices. Which are MSRP prices right now. Next week 9526 will more then likely be back at their price of $109.99. I was just in my local Walmart today no sign of 9525 here. Going to be downstate tomorrow that store seems to get stuff in first so check then.

I thought the exclusives were still sold at TLS... Well, that is how it is here in Central Florida anyways. Also, keep in mind that Bricktober is coming up and TRU runs some good deals then... With their markup, the deal isn't great, but can land you a mini set or an exclusive minifigure for free.

I live in Southern California and I went to my local TRU a few a hours ago and they didn't have ANY of the new Star wars sets. But it's good to know that the Palpatine's arrest isn't that expensive.

I live in northern california @the reviewer and they have all of them

Just checked the US Lego Shop online to see if any of these had popped up with a date yet. They have 9515 The Malevolence™ listed now with Coming Soon on 23 Jul 2012. Spider-man set is also up with that date.

I saw only the Thor polybag (w/cosmic cube) and some of the newer Hero Factory (the one's that say not released yet in the database) at the Rego Mall TRU in Queens.

@the reviewer yeah maybe in a couple of days or weeks but sadly i wasn't able to buy any maybe tomorrow.

Great news, but I'm saving Palpatine's Arrest for Christmas as I just spent a bunch of the Skiff, Sub, and Palace.

It seems that Target is doing a lego reset here in SW Florida. The sales person there said it was going to be July 29th before they are in, but alot of the 2010 sets are clearenced out. Bought 2 yesterday at almost half price! Can't beat that. I'll just wait til then, I can't spend that much on Jabba's Palace.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Maybe by then, my Target will have the summer sets in.

@ Isabella
They have awesome sales on old sets. Check for them before they're all gone! :)

Be happy you're not in NYC... found 6 new SW sets at TRU in Queens, (Rego Park if you're trying to follow)
9496 skiff $34.99
9497 republic sf 57.99
9498 saesee tiin sf $40.99
9499 gungan sub 92.99
9678 bespin twin pod cloud car & lobot 13.99
9679 endor at-st & at-st driver 13.99

Annoyed I let the schmuck that works there refuse to go look for 9677 so I could complete my galaxy for now. Also had the Thor Cosmic Cube poly for ONLY $5.99

Guess the Bricktober black ninja magnet for a penny helped... and the free ninjago polys

I live in California too, and I checked my TRU here in Fullerton, but no sign of any summer sets, not even Friends.

No new stuff at my TRU in Pittsburgh, PA

My TRU in central New Jersey has the new summer Star Wars sets. My store had everything from this wave on the sales floor except for Jabba's Palace and the Malevolence, which could have just been in the back of the store.
They must have put out the wrong price tag in that TRU in California (referring to the actual news post) for Palpatine's Arrest because their website has it posted for $109.99 and that's what my store has it for, at least when I bought said set on Saturday and checked back in the Lego aisle on Sunday. Fortunately for me, I paid less than $85 for Palpatine's Arrest, including tax, thanks to coupons, discounts and such.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@the-box the price tag was not wrong it was discounted for 89.99 then it will go back to 109

No luck in Mississippi. No new sets but did see large sale.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Did they raise the price of Pre Vizsla's Mandalorian Fighter by ten dollars? Because it seems like it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Nothing in the Georgia at my TRU.

By in United States,

@murphquake...Good lookin' out. I was there with my kid today and completely missed the new sets. Things are so all over the place there it all looks like a pile to me...;) I did pick up Thor's polybag though and I keep walking by those friggin' dagnabbit Prince of Persia sets way above retail...still collecting dust. This is about 2 years or so on the shelf in the same dang spot. Also nice to see the Batcave for $103 dollars there....oy vey.

In Miami, Fl, I picked up the Desert Skiff (1 of 2 on the shelf) at a Target store on Thursday, July 12th. This is the only summer SW set I've seen. I paid $24.99 for the set. I have not been to TRU for so long, I've almost forgotten how overpriced they are.

By in United States,

I am a big time collector but I just can't afford the star wars sets anymore. I wait for clearance now and an Amazon deal befor I bite. It is really frustrating to see such high prices. Love the mini figs But I just can't keep up!

Gravatar
By in United States,

All the sets minus Jabba's Palace and the Malevolence were in the KC Metro North TRU on Friday. No sign of them yet at the Lego Store that opened up this summer. Lego said they wouldn't have them until the end of the month. The TRY also had the Thor polybag and the new Friends Summer Sets including some polybags.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@TheReviewer: I also live in Southern California and there are none at my local TRU but I checked and they have them all at another one that is 40 minutes away from me. They will definitely be showing up in greater numbers in the coming days. :)

By in United States,

As of today, nothing at TRU in Salem, OR yet.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I rarely go to TRU anymore. Their tax isn't worth it. A family member has a Target discount that is pretty damn good so they get all my money. I couldn't wait for the skiff and when I saw it on Amazon I jumped on it. The set is awesome and I may try to integrate it with the baseplate for the PQ Pyramid.

We got all the star wars summer sets over a month ago in Norway but i havent seen palpatines arrest or pvms yet at my local tru in gjøvik

By in United Kingdom,

Good to know our friends across the pond are getting these sets!
Legoland Windsor also have the summer SW sets in, including Pre-Vizla's Mandalorian Starfighter and Palpatine's Arrest, they also had the new Monster Fighters sets and new NinjaGo spinners.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I would be delighted to find the Star Wars sets in stores already.
Then again, with those kinds of mark-ups, I think I'll just wait for the online release.

I haven't seen them here in Virginia....

I found the desert skiff at my tru in chicago

By in Germany,

legodad42 just wondering if there were any way i could talk you into getting me a thor poly bag? we could work out the details through email.

By in United States,

No summer sets yet @ TRU or Walmart in Los Angeles, i.e. Glendale, Burbank, Santa Clarita areas.

By in United Kingdom,

Just a reminder to please keep on topic here guys - "Look at this cususoo project it's cool" does not count as on topic, and will be deleted.

By in United States,

Saw several new sets at TRU today. The prices are not discounted like they are online but they will honor the online prices if you bring it up. Jabba's Palace wasn't in yet but probably will be soon. They didn't have Palpatine's arrest either which I really want.
They did have the Thor polybag. I suspect there will be lots of those like the Batman ones that are still around so Legomatt3 just keep checking back.

No luck in Northern California(Santa Rosa)... :( bummer.

By in United States,

The malevolence and the ucs b-wing are on Lego.com. for u.s.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Jabba's Palace is at Amazon regular price now. $119.

Gravatar
By in United States,

That is way too expensive.... :O It should be $49.99.

Gravatar
By in United States,

As ^^^ pointed out, LEGO.com has the UCS B-wing listed for $199.99 with an October release date, and the Malevolence (with standard price of $119.99) for release on July 23. Hopefully this means all the new SW will be added before or on the 23rd for purchase.

I'd love it if they had these sets in store next week as I'm going on vacation where there's a few LEGO stores...

I saw the Skiff and Jabba's Palace at a Mishawaka, IN Super Target today.

HAHA Finally got the Gungan Sub and Desert Skiff today along with the thor polybag which doesn't seem to be that popular at my tru. I live in Sacramento and they had all the summer sets there.

Gravatar
By in United States,

They are in the Phoenix area as well.

Gravatar
By in Croatia,

They have all the summer star wars sets in tru in graz, Austria.
Including palpatines arrest (90 euros) and mandalorian starfighter (40 euros).

Gravatar
By in United States,

They have all the sets in the TRU in Pensacola, FL. Obviously all are over priced by $5-$20

Gravatar
By in United States,

TRU has dropped all there legos down to normal prices currently! Hope this is permanent!

Well the past week I have been looking and you couldn't order the set. Today was the first day I noticed you could order it. That's what I was pointing out.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I just got the desert skiff, Palpatines arrest and Jabba's Palace!!! I LOVE these sets!!! These are AWESOME sets, especially Jabba's Palace, with all the new mini figures, like Jabba him self!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Went back to the Super Target in Mishawaka, IN on Friday and the Skiff and Palace, including the shelf labels, were gone. Perhaps a stocker jumped the gun?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Got Desert Skiff, Gungan Sub and Palpatine's Arrest along with the thor ploybag and my tru in Citrus Heights CA

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Skiff and Jabba's Palace have reappeared at the Super Target in Mishawaka, IN. Things are so cramped on the shelves that the Skiff boxes had to be placed sideways.
