It would appear that Costco now has the City 2013 advent calendar out in some locations, priced at 27.99 Can.

Thank you Brickset user Christina for the news.

I saw the star wars one at the Lego store at Tyson's Corner (VA)...not sure if they had the city one or not.

They have Christmas stuff coming out already!!! Wow. I thought it was bad when it started in October. Before you know it we'll be having Christmas sales in July!

but yeah, it is disturbing to see Holiday decorations already adorning Costco. On a good note if you are looking for the Dorling Brickmaster books Costco have them very reasonably priced at $14.49US. I picked up the new Star Wars today, they also had Ninjago, City, and I believe Friends.

I wonder if the early sales of the calendars is meant to get them a sense of how many people will buy them. Because I know that the Tyson's store, at least, had a *ton* of the star wars advent calendars left in late december (which is how I eventually got mine rather cheaply).

The Star Wars set was also really overpriced last year; I believe it was $50. This year the Friends set was $29.99 and Star Wars was $39.99. I'll be interested to see what the Friends one looks like when my daughter eventually builds it. It looks pretty skimpy from the pictures on the box.

Didn't see either of them at a Target yesterday. Usually I hold off on Star Wars until clearance. Last year, I got it marke down from $49.99 to $12.50 or so at the Lego store!

Our local LEGO store stocks the City, Firends and Star Wars 2013 advent calendars.

My Wal-Mart still has a couple 2012 SW ones, "clearance" priced at $29. Yeah, still too rich for me, $20 or less and we're talking.

I've seen it only once,, the 2010 Fire Helicopter, but they do have the books that have bricks with it last time I checked, which was only 3 days ago.

I saw it at my Costco, so I picked it up. I also saw the Temple of Light set for $65 which is much better than $90.
