My local Wal Mart has a stash of these sets (polybags)...the TIE is showing from 2008 and the X-wing from 2010. Should I get excited and go buy a bunch more of them, or are these a re-release? Found them with the easter stuff...

    I'm not sure, but I would like to buy one of each from you if you happen to pick up some more

    I would have liked to found those as well :-) Not that they are crazy rare, but anytime you can get a cool older set for msrp or lower its always a bonus.

    The four Wal Mart stores I have visited over the past week had many of these set in the Easter section. The copyright symbol is 2011 for those sets.

    I just looked at the 8028 package I picked up tonight, it indeed says 2011 copyright. Not sure why I didn't check that, but I guess that means it is a re-issue. For whatever its worth, they are really nice little sets for $4. My wife built up one of the x-wings earlier and we even got 5 extra parts out of the deal...
    Thanks everyone for the replies.
    @rocao- are you still wanting some of these sets or are you going to check your local Wal-Mart first? Holler if you need me to get some for you.

    As far as I'm aware, 30051 has not been available in the UK to date - I had to import mine from the U.S.. It might be worth your while to buy up a few of them therefore as there are probably folks in the U.K. and maybe elsewhere who'd like to trade with you for them or even buy a couple off you....

    To be honest, I don't keep close enough tabs on polybags. I feel kind of like a sucker since they're referred to as "impulse sets". I'll check my Walmart first, and I'll let you know if I come up empty-handed. Thanks!

    No problem. I went back out and picked up enough to have some spares, and there were still plenty of them left on the shelf. They were in with the easter stuff towards the front of our store, none were in the Lego aisle.

    @TalasAntares: I stopped by my local Walmart last night and found both polybags. Since they put it in the seasonal/Easter aisle, I wonder if they'll discount it after Easter. I'm guessing not, but I'll hold out hope. Thanks for the heads up!

    There are a TON of both of these here in the St. Louis area. I've picked up about 10 of each. Would love to trade some with anyone in the UK or mainland Europe for 4899 or any other European exclusives. I also have a few extra "target Practice" polys to trade. Let me know if anyone is intersted!

    ^ I'd be interested in Target Practice. I don't have a tractor though, as far as I know it wasn't available in the UK.

    The tractor was given away during one of the Daily Mirror giveaways, if I remember rightly. It's certainly appeared in the UK at some point as I have a couple and certainly didn't import them.

    ^ Spot on DrD, it certainly was. I only have 1, whereas I normally get multiples of those Daily Mirror giveaways, I can only assume I've already traded my others with one of my US contacts.
