Sets are available in quite a few places, but not all.

Mid Scale Falcon - http://shop.lego.com/ByTheme/Product.aspx?p=7778&cn=520&d=322Image
356 pieces for £30 seems very reasonable.
Also available in, and for;
Australia - 60AUD, Belgium - 45 Euros, Czeck Republic for 1000CZK, Denmark - 350DKK, Finland - 42 Euros, France - 42 Euros, Ireland - 30 Euros, Italy - 40 Euros, Luxembourg - 45 Euros, Netherlands - 45 Euros, New Zealand - 80NZD, Poland - 215PLN, Portugal - 40 Euros, Spain - 40 Euros and Sweden - 450SEK.


Home One - http://shop.lego.com/Product/Default.aspx?p=7754Image
789 pieces for £88 seems less reasonable, but I suppose it's the standard now. (and the figs help)(but seriously, 200 odd pieces less than the RGS, and more expensive :'( )
Also available in Germany for 130 Euros.

I just did a quick calc and to buy all of the new IJ and SW sets at RRP from [email protected] would cost £621.30!!

That's not including the chrome stormtrooper magnet set either (as that's not on UK [email protected] yet!).

My wallet has just divorced me!

Mind you, out of all of these sets, there are very few I will buy at RRP ... possibly only the Echo Base and Endor sets!

I don't understand why TLG continues to release region specific sets that are not readily available everywhere in the world.

WHY DO THEY DO THIS TO US????????????????????? >8( >8( >8(

It's just crazy. So the Mid-scale Millenium Falcon is not (yet) available in Germany, but instead we have the CW 7753 Pirate Tank in stock for EUR 40 (also available in the UK for GBP 31, but nowhere else it seems).

Pirate Tank - http://shop.lego.com/ByTheme/Product.aspx?p=7753Image

372 pieces, 24 cm long and 15 cm wide. Not sure what to make of this one. It's labeled "Hard To Find" and has two Weequay pirate minifigs, but it's a Clone Wars set and about as ugly as they come.

I think I'll stick with ordering Home One tomorrow as that on its own is enough to qualify for a gold minifig.
