I just came across the same SW set at my local TRU this week and though that it was strange that such an old set would turn up. Are you in NY y any chance? I didn't even bother to check the price because I was pretty confident that at TRU it would be more than MSRP.
A couple months ago at this little hobby store, they were cleaning out their storage for some more space. They found a ton of 2006 Batman stuff, and I got the old Batcave, Hunt for Killer Croc, and the one with Two Face for $120 all together! I will say that the boxes were definitely not in mint condition, however. On eBay or Bricklink, I'd be lucky to get any of those sets without a box for the amount I payed for that much.
On topic: I have yet to see any of these. There is not any on eBay at the moment, and since a couple always end up getting stolen from TRU shipments early, it's either a mistake or they are better at keeping them safe.
On another note does anyone know how the TRU price matches up with MSRP? If the pattern from last year holds true, it will be a while before the non-licensed themes get marked up...
I'm still hoping I will be assigned the task of assembling any displays for the new sets when they do come in.
@Ma1234 - are the 2012 Ninjago sets being sold at the LEGO brand retail stores?
I was not a big fan of the most recent City Sets -but did purchase a few boats and the horrendous Shipyard. I was down to just 14 sets (most held over from the Farm Theme). I am still waiting for my oldest to become brickmature in order to appreciate BBB (and not just tear it apart like he does with every other set).
Thank You TLG.
The instructions for those sets were much harder to follow than the current sets, which I do agree are almost too simple.
But consider for a minute the target market... My 6 year old son does well with the simple instructions, but some of the harder ones really are hard. He does great with the City sets, he built 3367 Space Shuttle all by himself with only 2 or 3 minor mistakes... The Creator sets are harder to build, more complex instructions and ways to put things together. 5867 Cool Cruiser gave him no end of trouble and finally he gave up on it.
