The good news: Target has restocked 21109 Exo Suit. And unlike Amazon’s limit of 2, you can order up to 3 sets at a time. Free shipping starts at $50 unless you’re a REDcard holder for whom there is no minimum for free shipping and plus you’ll get 5% off your purchase. The bad news: it is priced $5 higher than MSRP at $39.99. But it’s the only retail game in town and considering the alternative of picking it up from Amazon Marketplace or eBay, it’s not a bad deal. Time to stock up for Christmas.

Update: Amazon has sold out and the page now shows availability from 3rd party sellers.
Amazon has restocked on Peter Reid’s 21109 Exo Suit. Cost is at $34.95 with a limit of 2 per order. If you’re still looking to get this set or want to give one as a holiday gift, buy now before it’s too late. LEGO Shop@Home still shows the set as “Temporarily out of stock”.
Not satisfied with the final model, our very own Don Solo has modded his copy of the Exo Suit to have the arms better match the original’s arm design. Above is a picture he took of the completed model. Below is the exploded view of the arm. Aside from the obvious bits used for the mod, you’ll need this Bar 6.6L with Stop Ring running through the hollow core and a “Technic Driving Ring Extension” for the end.
And here’s a pic of the original Ideas submission:
Personally, I think it looks a LOT better without the barrel. If you still haven’t picked up this fantastic set for yourself, you should know that Shop@Home has the set is currently listed as “Temporarily out of stock,” which means they’ll eventually get it back, they just don’t know when. 21110 Research Institute though? One and done. Congrats if you grabbed some sets for yourself.
The general consensus on the 21109 Exo-Suit has been “awesome, but those shoulders are just terrible.” I put mine together yesterday, right after I put together 21110 Research Institute, and couldn’t help but notice that it came with an extra 3L bar in light grey/medium stone. Turns out, that’s just about the right length to slip through the shoulder to hold it together.
For those who are curious, this is part 87994 on Bricklink, 17715 on BrickOwl, and the Lego element ID is 6093527 (though it’s sold out on Bricks and Pieces). It came in light grey in the Research Institute, and according to BrickOwl (though not Bricklink or Brickset), it also came in the LEGO Movie Super-Cycle Chase. I don’t have that particular set, so I can’t quite confirm it.
No word on how easily the chemist will let go of her beaker stand…

I received my review copy of the latest LEGO Ideas set 21109 Exo Suit some time before Comic Con happened but because of the craziness leading up to it I didn’t have time to do the review until now. While I was away I thought about the set and wondered if I would be just as impressed with it after some time and space was between us as I was the first time I built it. And let me tell you, the test of time had not tarnished Peter Reid’s excellent Ideas set, 21109 Exo Suit, in the least. It was just as magnificent to post, play with, and photograph as it was the first day.
