You can now pre-order the DC Universe LEGO Super Heroes sets from LEGO Shop@Home. Not every set is available, 6862 Superman vs. Power Armor Lex and 6860 The Batcave being the notable absentees. All sets are scheduled to ship on December 15th and if you place your order before the 19th and hit $49 or more you'll score free shipping. Complete list is below with prices:

Ooh, awesome!

You've got 6864 and 6863 flipped, btw... Batwing is $34.99, Batmobile is $49.99. So the current TRU markup (in the US) is $5 on the Catwoman and Batwing sets, $3 (iirc) on the action figures, and $0 on the Batmobile.

It'll be interesting to see the reviews of these sets. I've got most of the original Lego Batman sets and minifigs. These new sets / minifigs don't appear that much better or different than the originals so I many end up passing on these sets and saving my "Lego bucks" for other sets / themes.

For someone who missed the 1st wave when they came out(no tumbler *grumble grumble*) I'm looking forward to getting those!

I'm a little surprised by most of the Batman sets. Not that they cover a lot of the same ground, as that seems inevitable. I'm just surprised that they don't SEEM to be trying to improve on the old sets, so they can sell to BOTH the people who got the old ones, AND the ones who missed out.

The Tumbler was in the second wave, but otherwise your point is valid. :)

Like ninny, I missed the earlier sets, so I will probably get the Batmobile and the Fun House. They seem to have the best parts/price ratio, best mini-figs and some good parts that will be useful for other builds.

I was about to order the Funhouse this morning when it was in stock with some discounted SW keychains to get the free shipping but got distracted.

When I went back to finish my order an hour or two later it was already out of stock. :(

Oh well, ordered it anyway, I can wait 30 days.

I don't see the Funhouse on TRU's website, so does that mean it's not a TRU exclusive since they're selling other Superhero sets and not this one?

i don't rememebr reading anywhere that it was a TRU exclusive. if it was a retailer exlusive it would say "special edition" in yellow along the side. it could be a shop@home exclusive though. and since these sets are just coming out, it's a bit early to say anything definitive.

Man, I HOPE it isn't a Shop@Home exclusive. Aside from the Superman set, this is the only one I was seriously considering. But I ain't ordering it from Shop@Home and paying shipping charges.

i'm pretty sure if you order while somethings on backorder, you'll still get free shipping as long as you meet the threshold.

Yes, but I try not to order stuff for myself this close to Christmas. Even though I know nobody is getting me this, it just FEELS wrong (plus I need the money for gifts for others).

As far as I can tell 6857 - is not on a the dealer price list - so could be an chain exclusive or shop@home exclusive, but for sure it won't be in the average toy store.

Chain exclusive I can deal with. I've got plenty of Targets, Wal-Marts and even a TRU nearby (though I'm loath to shop there).

Dec. 16th & 17th another TRU BOGO50% off sale on LEGO and it only excludes Star Wars. So maybe a good time to pick up Super Heroes?
