I found the Corporate Alliance Tank Droid at the Hornby Warehouse this morning :-)
Finally, NZ gets something first! =)
I want the star wars sets to come out in the USA so badly!!!!
Wow, that tank droid is a must-have, as is the Echo Base, Seperatist Shuttle and Endor set.
Hopefully moving to the U.S. soon......I can hear the taun-taun calling.....
How much do they cost in NZ?
are the jet packs actual jetpacks?
WOW can hardly wait.t with everything lately in the USA i have to wait. Going to buy them at my local LEGO store when they come out and it is a double stamp day also.(may have to wait several more months for that though)
@ dmcbuilder501: yes.I reckon the Star wars sets won't come out in the Uk for at least another month yet. I'm sure we'll know when they come out here though. I'll visit my TRU again sometime in mid-June for an update. I believe these are the UK prices (for non-exclusives or specials):Echo Base: £20Corporate Alliance Droid: £20Separatist Shuttle: £30Y Wing Starfighter: £40The Battle of Endor: £70Venator Class Cruiser: £80
Oh well, I guess we still have to wait. Hope it comes to the US soon
Yeah JP posted this over in the NZ corner of EB. It's $48.99NZD which is pritty average, and i'll pass seeing as it's CW. But still, I'm so amazed that NZ get a SW set early! My local warehouse also has the 3 new Power Miners sets along with a new creator set.It's too bad that this is the only set found. I went hunting 'round all the warehouses in my area yesterday and this was the only SW set they had. Too bad.
Wow, that's great! Star Wars sets are finally showing up!
I really like this set, and will probably get it eventually. Good balance of clones and droids.I'm pretty sure these are the US prices for the Star Wars line second wave: Corporate Alliance Tank Droid $24.99Echo Base $24.99Mid Scale Millenium Falcon $29.99Separatist Shuttle $29.99Pirate Tank $29.99Anakin's Y-wing Starfighter $59.99The Battle of Endor $99.99Home One Mon Calimari Star Cruiser $109.99Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser $119.99
Oh, man too bad i live in bulgaria the only sets that are in my town are bionicle,creator and realy rarely city sets
So, how's the set? Is it any good?
ahhhhh when in the us
when do you think they will be in canada?
Legoland Gunzburg had the following star wars sets in stock on Thursday 21st/ Friday 22nd. I believe TRU Germany also has these.Corporate Alliance Tank Droid (€25)Echo Base (€25)Separatist ShuttleAnakin's Y-wing Starfighter (€69.99)The Battle of Endor (€99.99)Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser (€139.99)The shop also had the two impulse space police sets.
Can't believe NZ beat us with this set!
Guys, *please* keep this on topic.This is absolutely NOT the place for discussing your personal political views. Insulting people, but saying you don't mean to insult them, is still insulting them.Ignoring timing of releases for the moment, what sets are available in any particular store, in a particular country, depends largely on what those stores order. LEGOs range of sets is largely based on what they think will sell in their primary markets (US, Western Europe), and what their main retailers (e.g. TRU) say they want. Other markets/retailers may decide that the sets on offer won't sell well to their customers & not buy them from LEGO for onward sale. There are times, especially when new sets are released, that LEGO can't meet demand, but it usually balances out after a month or two.Again, please keep it on topic & keep it polite. Ian
(In most humble & polite tone possible)I'm jealous. This is one of the "must have" CW sets. Jet pack troopers and the tank droid from the Battlefront game for (hopefully) under $25. This one and Echo base can't come soon enough.
My 4th post = my 1st double post...Grahame never answered... how cool is this set? Did he just find it or does he own it and can tell us how cool it is?
Yea i bought this at the warehouse on the weekend.I went round every toystore in town to see if they had any other sets that i could get but it was only the tank droid and there was only three of them!
Why does it seem that the SW sets are available everywhere BUT the US?
Now THAT looks cool.
I called the Lego Customer Service today and was told that the Star Wars: Clone War sets will be in the July/Summer Shop@Home catalog.
Almost i usa can't wait :)
These are the prices!!!!Battle Of Endor- $99.99 Venator-$119.99Y Wing-$59.99Separatist Shuttle-$29.99Echo Base-$24.999.Corperate Alliance Tank Droid-$29.99Home One-$109.99Pirate Tank-$44.99Millennium Falcon-$44.99I want the Separatist Shuttle the most
I can confirm too....The Warehouse in Wellington NZ has got set 7749 and it looks great. Personally I think it is quite pricey for what you get (NZD$48.95) but 5 mini figs, a Taun Taun, Gun Turret etc.......
Ha ha...thinks I live in the USA because of my IP address....sorry guys, not trying to pull a fast one here, I am infact in NZ and set 7749 is for sale in the Warehouse.
@LAC: Cool! I was hoping they would release earlier than August, as they previously said, even if only a month earlier. Gotta save up for this set and Separatist Shuttle. Although I might have to wait and get some of last year's sets before they get discontinued... next year. :]
i saw new power miners at farmers new zealand!
I did some new reaserch, and these are the pricesMillenneium Falcon- $44.99Pirate Tank- $44.99Home One- $109.99Corporate Alliance Tank Droid- $24.99Echo Base- $24.99Separatist Shuttle- $29.99Y Wing- $59.99Venator- $199.99The Battle Of Endor- $99.99
I hope the Venator"s Price isn't set at $199, i mean it has around the same piece count as the Republic Gunship and it looks very similar in construction to set 6211 which was only $100. If TLC tries to sell it for much more than that, they've officially lost it.
They officially lost it a long time ago, and so did the fans who are very willing to pay the insane prices.
Guys, at the Toy Fair the price of the Venator was $120.Sev
why can't we as britain have this set now???
Because we "don't represent as much of the market as most other countries"It's a fact that I suppose we have to face, but I agree - those sets better be out soon!I can't wait to get copies of Echo Base and Corporate Alliance Droid for army building.
You guys, @Republic Commando Sev is right, the Venator is definitely not going to be $199.99. The price, as I previously posted, is $119.99, just like the gunship. The only detail that was flawed in my previous post is the price I put for the Pirate Tank set: $29.99. It's actually $44.99. I was a little suspicious that they were going to sell it that cheap before...oh well.I can't wait to buy one or two of the Corporate Alliance Tank Droids for my droid and clone armies.
The tank is still cheaper than I thought, Target exclusives used to always be $50.
Sorry i mest up the Venator is going to be $119.99The Separatist Shuttle is available in Arkansas
Thanks Commander-Cody. I also cannot wait for the new star wars sets.
I just ran to my local FUN store, in Belgium, and I couldn't believe what I saw there: Tank droid + Echo base + Seppy shuttle + Y-wing!! It's the first time Belgium is amongst the first to get a new load of Lego sets :D
how much do you think they will be in canada?
I just got a Sep. Shuttle! The sets are here! Went to a lot of kiwi shops today and most of them had at least a few new sets! :D
I'm happy that this set is not too expensive for the UK
I just got the Separatist Shuttle from Ebay, and i live in Little Rock, Arkansas
Those jetpack clones are nice
is there anyone else in canada who knows how much money they will be?i want to know!
Separatist Shuttle is $39.99Coporate Alliance Tank and Echo Base are $29.99Venator is $149.99Home One is around $129.99Pirate Tank and Millenium Falcon are around $54.99Battle of Endor is $129.99Anakin's Y-wing is $79.99
Just went to my local Toy-store today and had all the new star wars sets, they arrived yesterday!

NZ are really lucky

The Home One Mon Calamari Cruiser set price has been confirmed at $99.99(US) according to brickipedia. Now, that leaves only one 2009 star wars set left, the new Tantive IV set. Brickipedia claims that the set will be priced at $199.99, but they failed to provide a picture. Does anyone have a link to picture of this set?
Augh! The suspense of the Star Wars second wave is killing me! And I still have to wait till July/August! I want this set a lot. And many others. Who's with me?
@ShatteredGnome7675: Who isn't with you? *laughs*Sev
I am also with you!
i am with you and its not fair for Germeny (sorry if spelt wrong) or other countries to get lego star wars sets first
This set is still not on lego shop UK!
