In hand, picked it up today, Bridgewater Commons B&M Store NJ. Includes 6 regular clones and 2 pilots. They were out of clone battle packs though and no AAT. But they had that indy jones set mentioned on the front page here at fbtb.

Ah my store too :)
I'm curious as to how big is the box in relation to the RGS and such, for storage purposes

Thanks

I got mine on Monday (yesterday)! They only recieved a shipment of 2 of them so I got to pick which one I wanted based on the box condition. What a pleasant surprise that they released on Monday March 23rd, since it was my birthday!

10195 is 1/8" thinner and 2-3/4" more narrow but 4-1/8" taller.

It's 22-3/4" wide by 19" tall.

I was sent home early from work Mon. because of bad weather. I decided to call Lego to place an order for some missing parts out of a set I bought this weekend. Out of curioisity I asked if they where taking pre-orders for 10195 and she said it was available so I just ordered it :lol: .

I picked mine up yesterday. I phoned in to my local Lego Store (Mall of America, Minnesota), and they said they had a bunch that they just got in, but from what I saw at the store they only had two. Some may have been stored in the back, though.

So far, my thoughts on this set are phenomenal. It's an amazing set. I am almost finished building it and I have been impressed the entire time.

Just got this set in the mail yesterday and it took about 6 hours to build. I have to say I was pretty hyped about this set and it does not disapoint. I know some people are on the fence whether to buy this set so here are a couple of pros and cons.

Pros
-The design of the AT-OT is fantastic. IDK what it is but the pictures don't do it justice and IMHO I believe it looks better than the new AT-TE when fully loaded with clone troopers.
-Design for dropship and mechanism that connects to your walkers is ingenious and works pretty well(for the AT-OT.)
-They finally gave us enough pilots to pilot our ships :)
-It is massive when completed which does make you feel better about spending all that money.
-Color on dropship and stickers are pretty sweet. I am going to need to make one of my gunships with this color scheme.
-Overall it was a fun build. Has a lot of system and techniqe pieces and was a little challenging at some points.
-Bags are numbered.(Bags with number 1 are for AT-OT, Bags with number 2 are for dropship.)

Cons
-The gunship is a little flimsy in the area connecting the cockpit and handle area. (But still alot better than the star destroyer.)
-Price tag. I think it should have come with more clones or Ayala Secura(She is seen in Episode III next to an AT-OT on Felucia.)
-It is compatable with the new AT-TE but you do need to mod the handle and it is a lot harder to connect than the AT-OT because it does not have a way to keep the handle up.(unless I missed something and I'm sure there is a way to mod this.)


Well thats all I have. If anyone has any other questions about the model just ask.

-Jim

Don't worry, you didn't miss anything. I have the same problem. The best way to do it is to hold the handle up from the bottom or MOD it.

I'm guessing it's like this because the AT-TE has a covered top, so you would have to open it up every time and flip the little piece to hold the handle in place. That would get a little old, opening and closing it each time. I'm hoping to work on a MOD for it.

Was in Lego store in Ontario CA. a week ago Thursday. They had a tone of stuff with light box damage on sale for 30% off. Including 7676 and 7675. Was not sure if i could spend that kind of money so I had to wait until Monday and i'm glad I did because when I returned they had the 10195 out. This is one of the best sets that Lego has put out in the SW line. 12 mini figs would have been nice.

its already gone on backorder at S@H. only for a month though.
maybe they didn't have enough sets in this initial run. was it really that popular it sold out so quickly?

Yesterday they were available at the Orlando Downtown Disney Lego store. It does look great but I'll be saving my money for the Indy sets coming in August. Also, a store rep said they were out of battlepacks from selling 6,000 on Wednesday! I guess it makes sense for tourists to want a cheap set with many minifigs that fits into luggage easily. Lego is so smart. :)
