It appears that the NEW Hobbit and Ninjago sets are available in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

They are being sold at a toy store called Playvalue Toys. (I've never heard of it before).

The good news is they have free shipping for orders of $75 or more within Canada.

Here are the links to the Hobbit and Ninjago sets.

Thank you Brickset user Jon Brick for the news.

Hooray! Canadian prices finally! And... they're more reasonable than expected! I was expecting $40 for elf army and $65-70 for Laketown. $85 for Dol Goldur is not bad at all. I'll wait for 20% sales in six months, but hell, not bad at all for some surprisingly good looking sets (I'm skipping the film).

I wasn't going to get any but now I'm getting them all. I want Dol Goldur just to 'complete' my lego middle earth 'map.' I really like the Laketown architecture, I think I can incorporate the Medieval Market Village into the scene. And the Elf Army is a great troop builder with good colors, and I like the general look. I'm also going to combine it with the Barrel Escape set somehow.

Playvalue is pretty great. They have a -huge- selection of sets in store. It's too bad they recently moved to the middle of nowhere.

@petitetoilonrouge I can't see any reason as to why they moved outside the city. They had lots of space and were in a good location. Now I'm not even sure where they are really I've driven past once or twice on my way out of the city but I've always been busy and unable to stop by.

These sets are available now in at least one LEGO retail store in Toronto. I visited the Fairview mall location and saw a bunch of new city, creator, hobbit and ninjago.

They will be available from lego on December 1st, according to the December calendar. If they're not in-stock early in some b&m stores...

I've been to Playvalue and it has a HUGE selection of Lego sets (even some that are several years old). It's nice to see they're getting stuff early now. Also, I talked to the owners and apparently they moved locations in order to have their warehouse and store in the same place (or something like that).

Found the new Hobbit sets today at ToysRUs in Denver. Though when I went to check out the cashier stated the computer said they couldn't be sold until Dec. 1st. A manager overrode it and I left with the Battle of Dol Guldur.

No Lego Smaug though?? I was pretty excited to see their interpretation of this giant monstrosity. Do I need to wait for their third wave of sets?

These have been in my US Toys R Us since the weekend. I almost bought a couple of them Saturday. Went today to pick them up, took both Dol Guldur sets up to the register to purchase, and the register made a bad beep. Lady apologized and said they shouldn't be out -- not for release until 12/1 so she couldn't sell them to me. Darn! But the boxes sure look gorgeous.

a few lego sets are the TRU site including the 60055 that we have no image yet.

Excellent store. It was the local toy shop just around the corner but it just moved past the CTC! I might head over there tomorrow!

Playvalue moved because the land owner is tearing down the building and putting some new stuff up. Its a shame but they still have all their good stuff at the new location.
I also found the new Hobbit stuff at TRU in the GTA this weekend.

I have been to 2 TRU stores in NY & NJ both have 2 different hobbit sets on shelves already.

TRU USA has all the new sets online.

Isn't that typical TRU, having sets out that they can't sell. I've never been pleased with them or their practices. I think the only money I've given them this year was for that Giraffe polybag a few months ago. Otherwise I only buy from Shop@Home, if I'm going to pay full retail. Otherwise Amazon seems to have the best sales. I can certainly wait for these sets until December 1st and then I'll order them.

^Not anymore, they went up. (At least the Lego city sets)

Yeah I was only referring to the new Hobbit sets. Those are the onyl ones I see at standard retail.

Found the Hobbit sets in a TRU in the Tampa, FL area today. They wouldn't sell the Battle set and told me they couldn't until 12/1, but they sold me the others. No typical TRU markup on them surprisingly enough.

I've been to PlayValue. It doesn't surprise me they already have it. The Lego Store at Fairview Mall has some, however, I'm not sure about Yorkdale and Sherway.

Waiting for mine to come in the mail. Can't wait.

I saw all the sets yesterday at Toys Toys Toys , at the Toronto Eaton Centre. Their prices are always a bit higher than other Canadian retailers, so I'm going to wait on purchasing. I know they have a few other locations in Toronto, so odds are they're for sale there too, if you really want them right away!

Bought the new sets today at Toys R Us in Saint Louis, Missouri. Bought them all without issue.
