just got back from preview night at comic-con. didn't arrive early enough to get a raffle ticket, so i wasn't able to buy the exclusive set tonight (the one with ahsoka, mace windu, and clone trooper). each set had "XXX of 300" printed on them, and there were ahsoka sets left over after the raffle ended.
the clone wars obi-wan, luke skywalker, clone trooper set was available without a raffle ticket. 1250 are being sold. i figured it wasn't worth the cash. maybe if it had been 3 minifigs from the mos eisley cantina...
the sets are $50/each. the more exclusive sets (300 total per set) are limited to 1 per raffle ticket. i'm going to hold out for 3 sets from the original films.
the other exclusive set is a laat/c mini-set. the at-te walker looks exactly like the one i just got through brickmaster. not sure if it's worth $50 and standing in line for a raffle, but i guess that's why i got the 4-day pass. gotta complete the collection of mini-vehicles.
otherwise, the sets for sale were the same available through lego.shop.com. the new battle of endor, echo base, separatist shuttle, anakin's y-wing, venator-class cruiser, and corporate alliance tank droid were there, as well as some older sets. same price as the website. i didn't see the tantive iv set for sale, but it was on display. the displays give you a good sense of the proportion and number of pieces. battle of endor looks cool, but not sure it's worth $100.
little disappointed that the new sets for sale through target, wal-mart, and toys-r-us weren't available--or even on display. guess they're being kept under wraps until next month.
my one grab: silver stormtrooper magnet. no s&h through the lego website!
tomorrow is the release of the new lego star wars visual dictionary. first 50 in get dk swag and a chance to win a lego star wars set and free copy of the book.
