"Official" SW Lego launch date of 2/10? (at Walmart anyway)

Postby JamesBenjamin » Sat Jan 28, 2012 10:47 am

I've seen a few sets at TRU and the new Tie Fighter at a Target this past week, but apparently Walmart is putting theirs out on 2/10, as seen in these cardboard placeholders the Walmart in Sterling/Dulles VA.

Haven't seen those place holders, but I did see the empty spaces and prices tags for the new sets at the nearest Wal-Mart here.

That's strange, I wonder why they're waiting til then, since LEGO stores are supposedly going to have them on Monday and they've already been spotted at TRU. Any news on Target?

My local TRU had some of the sets, including the Y-Wing, but no X-Wing or TIE Fighter. Other than that, the only other places that have carried them have been smaller mom and pop toy stores in my area. But even then, none of them seem to have the X-Wing. My local Target and Walmart didn't have any of them.

Ah, and now we know why that date. I wouldn't be surprised if that's the unofficial "street date" for the toys in all stores, and some are just ignoring it...
