Brickset news archive: August 2007
I found this new picture for 7721 at the US Shop-At-Home site on Wednesday (NZ time) when this set was advertised for sale. When I checked on Thursday, the set was gone!
Ben advises us that the long-awaited Republic Cruiser is now available in the USA in LEGO brand stores. It's been available for a month or so in the UK, where it appears to be a Toys R Us exclusive.
Thanks to Boon Chong for the info and image. Has anyone else seen this in their local shops?
Was available August 29 from S@H to NA customers, but no longer showing (August 30) - Grahame.
Someone must have been doing some serious sniffing around to find this: If you go to http://www1.lego.com/eng/service/replacementparts.asp#content and type in the following set numbers, you can see an inventory and set name for each:
10184 Town Plan
10185 Green Grocer
10186 General Grievous
10187 Volkswagen Beetle
10188 SW Death Star
10189 Taj Mahal
Thanks to dr01d3k4 for the info.
Sorry for the lack of news lately. I have been busy over the summer and I don't think anything worth reporting has happened during August -- I suspect everyone else is busy too! If you have news you think we should be incluing, let us know!
