European release date for Lone Ranger sets

Posted by ,
Silver Mine Shootout

Amazon.de has the Lone Ranger sets listed, and is quoting an availability date of 20th April, so hopefully that will be the date they are released across Europe. No other Amazon has listed them yet. LEGO has put the hi-res images on their server which indicates they should be available imminently.

They have been found 'in the wild' in the USA, although from what I can tell, I don't think they are particularly widespread yet. Follow the thread in the forum for more information.

While you're waiting to buy them, be sure to read our exclusive pre-release reviews.

Hi yo Silver, we have some Lone ranger sets to buy!

I'm pretty sure US Amazon says 15 April? At least that's what it said before crazy toy stores started offering them for three times the price.

Yep - 3 of the 6 sets were listed yesterday for pre-order from Amazon.com themselves (as opposed to third parties) and showing as dispatching on 15th April, but they've disappeared today, so either all the pre-orders have been pre-ordered (!) or else they've decided to hold fire....

... and they were already off about 15% for a week or so - and I MORON didn't even pre-order one! They are back to RRP since some days..

The CAnadian release date is quite delayed - June 1st.

Saw these for sale in the Green Bay WI Toys R Us on Saturday. They were marked up so high that it was easy to pass on them (20-40% over MSRP). Had they been MSRP, I probably would have picked up one or two, but not at those mark-ups. I'll wait until Target or Wal Mart gets them in stock.

Walmart had them available for order (they were taken down shortly after). Managed to get the train, teepee, and stage coach which is all I could afford. Picked them up April 3rd. I wonder how many other people got in on that?

I got all six of the boxed sets from Walmart online before they were removed. Paid $.97 each to have them shipped to my house. Came 3/29. Put the train and stagecoach together so far. Those two are very nice sets. Hopefully the two polybags won't be to hard to come by. Only complaint is not sure what to do with all the Tontos and Lone Rangers.

I saw them at my local Lego Store today. They told me they will be out for sale on Monday April 15th.

Yes April 15th is USA on shelf date for sure.

I wonder if April 20th - the release date - happens in my native UK. The release date did say April 2013. Deep down, I can feel excitement and enthusiasm bubble up and churn inside me just wanting to reach out and really 'touch' those models and minifigures! Oh, such an awful long wait indeed! Many times I have asked to buy them off E-bay via the US listings, but many times my parents said 'no' to my dissapointment. As if the images were teasing enough, I feel like the long wait would be some kind of torture to us UK Lego fans and collectors...especially me. Gosh, how I dream that such a wait would end so soon...Why, I would desperately go at great lengths just to get both my hands on one measly Lone Ranger set!

My TRU had them on shelves as early as Thursday here in Bridgeport WV. The 12.99 set was 17.99, same markups as the TMNT sets. So I did not buy them. There aren't any TRU exclusives are there?

They're great sets but I'm happy to wait in the hope of some discounts. Particularly likely if the movie bombs at the box office (Prince of Persia anybody?)

@Brendan - None of the 6 Lone Ranger construction sets are exclusive to TRU. The two Lone Ranger polys might be exclusive (hopefully we know about the availability of those soon).

Want the sets but they scream 50% off at Tescos to me.

One thing's for sure. I won't touch the Stagecoach until it is at least 50% off. Compared to the usual +30-40% mark-up from US prices it is marked up by about 110% or so. Heck, it's probably cheaper to privately import it from there with shipping and everything factored in.

And there are other (less serious) offenders in the line, too. Only the train conforms to the usual 1 USD = 1 EUR rate.

Lego S&H now has all of the Lone Ranger Sets on their USA website (dated April 15).

Also, Yoyo.com is currently selling all of the sets.

^^^ My thought exactly.

I'm in NYC now and bought several of these sets today in the TRUstore! :)
