Popped into my local Brand Store (Milton Keynes, UK) last night, and was surprised to see the new UCS Obi-Wan's Starfighter on sale. The official release date has been published as 1st November. The staff said they had received the delivery on Wednesday with instructions to put it out immediately. Still shocked at the price - £95UK.

Especially when someone see the box sitting on the shelf and it's smaller than Cad Bane's speeder and the AT-AT...then they look at the price and feel like it's a rip-off.

If it pops up online before the double-VIP points ends I'll probably go ahead and snag it. 99 bucks so it will fall under the free shipping.

Not the best piece-price ratio, but I actually really like the Delta 7s for some reason and it's not always easy/cheap to get the UCS sets after they go away.

Anyone in the States feel like buying and shipping this to me? (I'd pay, of course) Or would anyone know how much it might cost to send the set, de-boxed, to the UK?

Looks like around $21 to ship from the US to UK...

dammit, when you said "on sale" I thought you meant discounted!

There's no way I'm paying UK rrp for this set.

I agree. I think OP or a mod should change the title to "for sale", it is deceptive.

I think its a great set. :D Aside from the economics (Only 6,7 pieces per €), i always fell for the Delta-7s. They seem so fast and agile, even while standing/floating. Plus, there is this UCS-Syndrom that i got.. ;) Unfortunately not yet on sale here in Germany, Berlin..

Cheers
