[US] It's That Time Again- 2011 Sets at Toys R Us!

Postby Staff » Sat Dec 11, 2010 9:50 am

TRU Link

Gungan Set     Jedi Shuttle     Bounty Hunter Set

V-Wing Set     Mando Set     Clone BP



The new 2011 Star Wars, along with some Racers, Creator, City, and Atlantis are in stock on toysrus.com. Here are all the new listings. Call me crazy but I think they are at or close to MSRP too. If you are lucky enough to find them in stores, you can use the$10 off $50+ coupon, as it includes everything but Pharaoh's Quest. Knowing TRU's sneaky dealings, I wouldn't be surprised if they show up in-stores tomorrow, considering the coupon expires at the end of today.

Thanks Greg for e-mailing us the tip.

Coupon is in-store only. Anyone seeing these sets in stores?

Nothing new in stock at my local TRU (SF Bay area). I printed out that $10 off $50 coupon, but with TRU's crazy Christmas markups, $10 off would maybe get the price down to MSRP... so I left empty-handed.

No SW sets at one of my local TRU(OP, KS) although they did have a lot of the new city sets, creator and Series 3 minifigs.

Got a free Ninjago headband, sticker and little sword holder set... Didn't know anything about that promo, but I never turn down a free set and my daughter had a blast spinning the little guys and "fighting" with another kid.

I've got all the new sets in my online cart and am having a real hard time not ordering them... Still not even sure I want the two larger sets but my frosted side keeps saying "New Sets! New Sets! MUST BUY NOW" :facepalm:

Pleasantly surprised on the pricing of them all, sure the piece/price ration sucks, but I was expecting the V-Wing to be 29, and the Naboo set to be 30, and all the rest to be at the next higher price point.

the prices you see now won't last very long. tru has a tendency to release sets at msrp and then bump them up when they remember they're in the business of taking advantage of the unwary consumer adding their own markup on top of msrp

I was able to snag most of the sets last year before they put their own markup on them. This year I'll probably wait for Target or Walmart to stock them... might even wait on a sale.

Although if I stop by one of the local stores tomorrow and they have them out(without the additional TRU convenience fee) I likely won't be able to resist.

Anyone know if any of the sets in this batch are TRU exclusives?

I don't believe so, none of the boxes are marked as such.

All of the Ninja Go sets are on the website as well. I'm too lazy to link them. They appear to be msrp.
eBay store, contact me if you'd like to perform trades from my inventory. I'm looking for original genosian fighers, second version a-wing fighters and tie bombers. I may be interested in other sets so let me know what you have.

Checked a couple of TRUs today with zero expectations of finding any of the 2011 sets. One was packed full of SW sets. The other has approx 15 SW sets (not counting the BPs) on the shelf. It wouldn't surprise me if it was fully stocked tomorrow with new sets. This particular TRU had the 2010 sets out a little over a week before Christmas last year.

No new SW sets at the TRU in Victorville, CA. I didnt ask a TRU rep when they planned on putting them out either. Went to the Lego Store in Ontario, with the same luck. Ask a girl who worked there, but she just gave me a deer in the headlights look when I asked her if she knew when the new sets were going to be brought out. On a side note, the store had a quite a few sets on sale due to being damaged. They had about 5 UCS Imperial Shuttles that had pretty minor damage to the boxes. They were selling them for 20% off, which brings the set down to a cool $200. Not a bad deal, unfortunetly I am tapped for the holidays so I was not able to get one...bummer.

If the sets are showing up in brick-and-mortar TRU, hopefully they'll show up at Lego Stores soon (like the early TRU release of PQ and Atlantis set prompted Lego to follow suit). I'll drop by my Lego Store today if I get a chance...

I saw the NinjaGo sets at TRU for MSRP yesterday. They were in the cases being put out. The Lego rep saw me with them and said they weren't supposed to be sold till January 1st so I handed them back. I was going to buy one of the smaller sets but I'll just be patient and get these on deep discount in a few months.

I saw stacks and stack of Lego shipping boxes piled high above the shelves on mine, all of them marked with big "DO NOT DISPLAY UNTIL JAN 1 2011" stickers

Even if you could get them down, seems their system refused to ring up the NinjaGo sets. I do recall I price checked the sets at a scanner. Guess it only denies you at the register. Wonder if the star wars sets will have the same issue since you can buy them on their website.
