$120 for the Sith Interceptor? Not on your life. Way, way over the top. Actually, almost half of the new sets are over $100.

Star Wars sets are going to have to wait for a few months. Maybe longer if my extra money gets spent on the Hobbit sets in Dec. I got the Spider-man set from Walmart.com on Friday. Put it together over the weekend. For the price I'd say its well worth it. Though I did notice my Spider-man head is a little translucent. Zombies set I'm a little disappointed in the Bride not being able to fit in the coffins while closed because of her base piece. Now I'm just waiting on the Haunted House in Sept , the Ghost , and Zombie driver Polybags whenever they hit stores. Hopefully they have a $75 free shipping deal going on in Sept.

I'd love to get that Spider-man set, but I'm on a tight budget and Walmart doesn't have it in stock!

Star Wars sets are showing up in the Pacific Northwest in Fred Meyer stores as of today which allows us to take advantage of a 15% off sale for all Themes (except Games) from July 22nd - July 28th. I picked up all three of the Series 2 Planets this morning for MSRP of $9.99 ($8.49 on sale)

If the price of future Star Wars sets continue to rise they won't even be worth buying. At the moment they definitely aren't.

LEGO plays the game of offer and demand. It is known that the will sell the Star Wars sets as well as any other year. The cost is usually a relationship between number of pieces not counting minifigs, the quantity of minifigs and the count of special parts. If you study the price of released sets for a some years now, you get sets around the $10 mark, another around $25, and then it varies for the $50, $75, $100 and $150+ I don't see this year is any different.

The average price per set goes on an average of somewhere around 12 to 16 cents-per-piece on Star Wars. It goes way higher on other series like "Hero Factory" or "Super Heroes".

The Fury-Class Interceptor (or Sith Interceptor as called out earlier) at $89.99 runs for just over 12 cents/piece. The Malevolence at $119.99 goes for under 12 cents/piece. The massive model of R2-D2 that was released in May at $179.99 runs for less than 8.5 cent/piece.
LEGO models are expensive, no doubt, but tell me how many other "toys" are also valuable collectibles and last as long as these?

My suggestion: buy what you can afford and wait for the discounted prices and promotions so you can get the models you can't afford otherwise. Patience is a virtue that you can exercise by assembling lots of LEGO models :)

A little surprised at the cost of the city sets. Figured helicopter rescue would be 50 dollars and the garage 100... Maybe 110 as a push. But 60 and 120 seem too high. Will wait for the post ho
liday clearance on some.

And also remember that you're lucky too, you get all the Collectible Minifigs first.

I want to know if the massive 9398 Rock Crawler is in my nearby lego store... I've been waiting for this RC beast for ages, and with the new L motor to boot. I'm going to have to go by this weekend. Oh... can't wait!

@Gandalf1 Good point

@JohnnyB: Agreed The HR shouldn't be the same as Weathertop, and no city set without trains in it was over $100.

I miss the days when LEGO sets were reliably 10c/piece. The creator sets used to be 2-5c/piece, and are now the last of LEGO's sets to reliably hit the 10c/piece mark. :(

I agree with the above comment on the City sets. I expect licensed sets to have inflated prices, but anymore, the City theme is gradually earning, in my eyes, the reputation for overpriced sets. I was looking forward to the Garage but not anymore at $120. I expected a price more in line with the fan choice Transportation set from two years ago, especially considering this garage looks like the part count is probably considerably less. (Yes, it has larger parts, but the set feels like there's so much less to it overall than the Transportation set. Even with inflation, I expected the price to still even out at $100.)

@Captain Blockbeard you're right about the looks. Something must be making it pricey, but with 933 pieces, the $120 become 12.8 cent/piece which is the average nowadays. Even worse if we go to toysrus unless they have a promotion going on to bring the price to par with everyone else. We'll have to wait for thanksgiving or one of those deals of the day that target and other stores are launching.

I'm shocked to see that that the spiderman set isn't a thousand dollars. Luckily my birthday is August 20 so I an just ask for jabba's palace then.
