    Since when has the release date of the Arkham Asylum-set been pushed forward to the 18.of Dec.? At least on [email protected] Germany/UK it has! Does that mean that the rest of the wave will also get released this year?
  • kezkez United KingdomMember Posts: 822
    ^ well I heard on eurobricks that the arkham set gets released on the 31st December and so might the other sets (1day early). But if you like TMNT sets I think they are already out somewhere in America because just2goodeurobricks has got the krangs lab set.
  • DiggydoesDiggydoes Cologne/GermanyMember Posts: 1,076
    I do live in Germany, over here the TMNT are not available at this time! But i thought it would be possible that we Europeans get the Super Heroes a little earlier than supposed?! Like i said [email protected] over here now says 18. of Dec. for Arkham!

    Arkam will be in UK Lego stores on 18 December.
  • kezkez United KingdomMember Posts: 822
    Oh I'm glad that the superheroes sets are coming out early over here, I'll hopefully get them before Christmas :)
  • thehockeyboythehockeyboy Member Posts: 97
    What's the likelihood of any of the sets from this year are EOL'd? Think they'll run with high numbers like Star Wars (ie 4 battle packs)?

    ^ Good work @kez. Arkham is still the only DC set listed on [email protected], release date of the 18th which is also last day for orders to arrive in time for Christmas. You may find one under your tree after all :-)
  • kezkez United KingdomMember Posts: 822
    ^ cheers, yes hopefully there is an arkham under my tree aswell :)
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 17,959
    ^^^^ Thanks for the links. Although I doubt DrDave will be pleased with someone else's affiliate ID being posted!

    ^ LOL, youre welcome, you could be right about that, it does tend to be Huw who does the main site updates the most so I thought it would give Huw something to do like change the 4 sets in the database so it now has their set weight and the set descriptions :-) ( I didn't see a piece count but I could be wrong)

    EDIT: @CCC I now give in LOL @drdavewatford can't grumble now :-)

    I know what you mean about the bugle set being cheep if I order it now at that price they can't change it can they?
  • kezkez United KingdomMember Posts: 822
    edited December 2012
    ^ I don't think they can really change it and they should honour it unless they argue it saying it was a glitch
  • richoricho Member Posts: 3,821
    Price is correct, only 476 pieces. Does look good value though with 5 minifigs.
  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,369
    I wonder if they will do a 25% off pre order like they did for the hobbit sets?
  • kezkez United KingdomMember Posts: 822
    ^ I hope so, fingers crossed
  • CoolsplashCoolsplash Member Posts: 935
    The timing sucks, as a friend is coming down from the UK and would have brought these down with him....

    I wonder amazon US will have them up.
  • sidersddsidersdd USAMember Posts: 2,432
    Barnes and Noble has them on Pre-order. They claim 10% off, but I'm guessing they are marked up first.

    Arctic Batman vs Mr Freeze - $19.75 ($21.95)
    Spider Cycle - $19.75 ($21.95)
    Daily Bugle - $47.65 ($52.95)
    Bat vs Bane Tumbler - $38.65 ($42.95)

    And B&N does not entertain many orders from my region due to some reason....but yes, the prices are marked up at B&N...they are catching up with TRU it seems :P
  • CupIsHalfEmptyCupIsHalfEmpty CanadaMember Posts: 547
    My local TRU has;
    76000 Batman vs. Mr Freeze - Aquaman on Ice
    76004 Spider-Man - Spider-Cycle Chase
    76001 The Bat vs. Bane Tumbler Chase

    If anybody here needs to have these sets under the tree for Christmas I can help you out. Shipping would be from Winnipeg MB R3L1J8. I'll charge you the cost of the set and shipping. (there is a 12% sales tax). Check out shipping costs on Canadapost.ca . PM me only if you are seriously interested.

    Rrrgh. I didn't buy your Galaxy Squad stuff, but I might need to get one of these...

  • kezkez United KingdomMember Posts: 822
    Lucky Americans (yet again with prices aswell) :)
  • DiggydoesDiggydoes Cologne/GermanyMember Posts: 1,076
    ^I guess @CupIsHalfEmpty is Canadian (Winnipeg) ;)
  • CupIsHalfEmptyCupIsHalfEmpty CanadaMember Posts: 547
    I'm not sure why a Toys R Us that's geographically at pretty much the center of North America get's set's first, but mines had plenty of 2013 sets rolling in for the past month.
  • kezkez United KingdomMember Posts: 822
    ^^ whoops, I thought @CupIsHalfEmpty was American, they are kind of next door to each other :) next time I'll check the profile, I still stand by my comment, lucky you though LOL :-)
    Hopefully the UK get them very soon.
