Looks like this deal is dead for now.
It’s only been a week and Amazon has already slapped a healthy discount on the new TIE Fighter. They’ve priced it at a much more attractive $41.49, but who knows for how long. If you’re considering this set (or if you need help deciding, check out our review), I recommend pouncing before they raise the price. Thanks to forum member nyjpapi for the heads up.

If you’ve been collecting LEGO Star Wars since 1999 with any seriousness and/or obsessiveness, then there’s a good chance you have too many TIE Fighters. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, well, at least not from a certain point of view. You may say to yourself, “No more, please, I’m stuffed. I don’t have the room.” I don’t blame you. It’s only been a couple of years since the last TIE Fighter, the TIE Defender, sat on store shelves (and in some cases, may still), but we’re going on about 7 years since the last honest-to-goodness TIE Fighter, the signature fighter of the Imperial Navy and perhaps one of the most iconic Star Wars starfighters second only to the X-wing. You may be stuffed, you may have no room, but 9492 TIE Fighter may very well be a set you loosen your belt for. (more…)
Happy New Year, folks!
LEGO Shop@Home put up the January 2012 assortment of LEGO Star Wars for preorder. Delivery is to be expected on or around January 30. It should be noted that 9494 Anakin’s Jedi Interceptor and 9495 Gold Leader’s Y-Wing Starfighter are marked as “Hard to Find” meaning they are retailer exclusives. No word yet as to which retailer they will be exclusive to yet. All preorders will come with an exclusive LEGO Star Wars poster. No minimum order indicated and no image of what the poster looks like but if I had to guess, it’s going to be a poster showcasing all the LEGO Star Wars minifigs for 2012.
Is it sad that I’m no longer fazed by the high prices and low piece counts? Such as the TIE Fighter set, priced at $54.99 but has less pieces than Gold Leader’s Y-wing? Eh.

With all the leaks and images floating around right now It seems fitting that LEGO would join the party on the official front and you can check out ads for the some of the 2012 offerings on YouTube. The first video features the new X-wing and TIE Fighter designs and lets you get a good look at the play features of the iconic starfighter’s latest re-release. This one is more of a tease since the street date for the Star Wars sets is still a bit off, but if the next video whets your appetite then those Cars sets are already available on LEGO S@H.
Thanks to THX 1138 for the heads up!
