Rats, you beat me! I had noticed this yesterday (Saturday), but I was too lazy to check if it had been posted yet... and wasn't sure if this was the proper forum location... something I seem to remember about the conditions of posting in this section? (Not a flame BTW... I'm not one of those people ...yes, you know who you are... you basement dwelling grumpy people :P) Oh well, you snooze, you lose! Unfortunately it's not available at the Canadian Toys R' Us website (.ca) yet... which would be where us Canucks would have to get it... no doubt a "boot" it... (although I pronounce it "about" not "a boot"... but I guess that it all depends on your geographical local in Canada... although I do love maple syrup and bacon... but I think that's universal in the "Great White North"... wow, how's that for going off topic) I did notice that the UK site has it, although there is no picture up yet (it does say it's in stock though). I wonder how long it will take to get this bad boy on Lego Shop@home? I'm going to be travelling on the "rock" (Newfoundland) for the entire month of August, so I hope I can get this set before I leave!

I don't really complain about price difference with Europe or Britain in particular. I understand the economies of scale, the more competitive marketplace, and exchange rates. I'm used to paying more and appreciate why Lego HAS to cost more here. But that price is over £25 cheaper than here. At our price (£88.09) it would cost $143 dollars in the States! That's really ridiculous. It's put me off buying it. I don't like to second guess their pricing people, but surely they could've put a more inviting price on it.

"Impressive, most impressive." ;)

I ordered the Home One set for $99.99 off of TRU.com. Also ordered Echo Base for $24.99 (can't wait to get my hands on that taun-taun).

Went to this site and clicked on their "$15 off order of $100" link and it took me to TRU.com and I got the $15 off promotion.

Not sure of the coupon code, but the link worked for me.

Honestly, only saved about $5 once you toss in shipping of close to $11.

Something off is better than nothing. :)

Heads up. My local LEGO store in Santa Clara, CA has them. So, check yours if you have one near you. They were priced at $109.99. Considering you get a free gold keychain and points on your loyalty card, it's not that bad compred to TRU's $99.99 price. But then again, TRU has its own rewards program...

So these will be available at both TRU and LEGO stores? Or will this be one of those specialty items that they only carry at a select few LEGO stores?

lego will eventually start selling them. they probably worked out a deal so that tru could get a few days of exclusivity before S@H starts selling them. i've never known a set to be sold at a retail store and never directly from LEGO.

Me either, which is why this seemed an unusual situation. . . Thanks for clarifying.

OK it's Sunday July 26th, and the Home One Mon Calimari Star Cruiser is still not available on Toysrus.ca ...I went to the closest Toys R Us in Whitby Ontario, and they don't even have any of the new 2009 sets yet... bummer. :(

Some lego stores will be getting most of the sets in these coming days. So call or go check what they have cause alot of them will be getting the stuff in after the first week of august.

Looks like TRU just raised the price to match the LEGO stores. Their web site now says $109.99.

Hmm, that's odd. I just saw the set in a TRU a week ago, and the price tag was $99.99. It's weird that they would raise the price like that. Maybe it was a mix-up and they priced Home One and Endor bunker the same.
