I love the idea of the mini planet sets, but like most am concerned about the price. Yes, I spend a crud-load of money on LEGO every year...but the prices usually seem fair for most sets. Even then most of us wait until there's a decent sale/promotion going on to bite the bullet on the larger sets. So to the point here, when I walk into a Target/TRU/Walmart/etc. I can easily find a 3-7 dollar toy for my daughter (Pet shop thingys, ponies, lalaloopsy, whatever). Then it comes to my son (yes, and me) where we see the lowest priced lego set is a either a small 4 dollar bag that has a guy riding a 4-wheeler or a half-done helicopter. When it comes to any SW sets, there are none. So we end up picking up a 5-7 dollar HASBRO SW action figure INSTEAD of buying Lego. You would think that LEGO would realize the price gap and fill that with smaller mini sets like they used to have (LIKE THESE NEW PLANET THINGS). I will definitely think twice about buying a mini-set for $10 whether or not it comes with a minifigure. I can only hope that TRU will have a buy 2 get one free sale after they come out.
Thanks to all the unsung heroes who manage to dig up the pictures!
