This is really disappointing Lego!!! Douse this mean that we’re not going to get it at all? I hope not. For if we don’t they have already failed with this adventure uniting people in all country’s in the universe in Lego universe.
And if we do I hope they’re going to make up for this and have a special launch day with an exclusive minifig for Australia New Zealand & Asia / South Korea.

Very disappointing Lego Just like Sharpy said a kick in the knickers to the loyal Australian market……

I am now going to go and dismantle some Lego set’s in disgust and put them back in there box’s! :[

I too am a LEGO Universe Beta Tester and yes the game is AWESOME, but....$40 and that's just for the disc and a "free" first month. You can't call it "free" if it is included with you pre-order box. And then to pay for the 1, 6 or 12 months to keep on playing on top of that? I mean it's worth it for those who want to play a awesome LEGO game. But I for one can't see buying it because, unless they keep adding new tasks, you already can do a lot of the tasks as a tester.

I'm not in any way complaining because I'm glad to be playing it as a tester, but the way I see it is this: $40 for an online game that only last for however long I pay for it OR $40 for an upcoming LEGO set that I will have forever?

Um... so can you pre-order it already? It's not 12:01 EST yet. But it looks like you can pre-order now on shop.lego.com. Anyone try to submit an order yet?

Isn't anyone wondering what it will cost per month??? I do, and i hope it's not over 100 SEK(about 10 dollars) because then i will have to wait a looong time before i can play it for real... I'm also a beta tester and the game rocks, but when lego makes it this unclear what will happen to your subscription in the future... I'm not sure if it's worth buying at all... but i still want it sooo bad...

@ Agreenbrick yes most MMOs tell you quite quick but as it is meant for 5-9 year olds (no offense meant) it will most likely be £2-5 (thats a complete guess)

Sorry i've no idea What that is in SEK :)
