See the post by @Grogall and subsequent discussion. I appreciate the level of clever hints but ultimately vague (or non-spoiler) detail until the set is unveiled.
Both available in US now.
Maybe I'm just way too paranoid about exclusives after almost missing the supply plane and the JW raptor escape.
ToO available on Target.com...
LEGO® The Tower of Ortc 10237
You said you only grabbed one, so I'm curious as to why you actually picked it up?
I work near the store so I pop in there a couple of times per week to check out inventory levels, etc. Pretty obsessive, I know, but folks around these parts scoop up deals fast so you have to be on your toes. Polybags also go quickly, I have missed out entirely on some of those. I saw a Deep Sea Base on the shelf and nabbed it. They only had one, I'm not sure if they received them that day or if it was a return. Hmmmm, I now wish I would have asked. The seals are fine so at least it probably wasn't opened if it was a return.
It will go to the City collector in my family UNLESS the price takes off. I will have to keep an eye at TRU to see if they get any more. If they do I will probably grab one more just in case, but it might be like the Icebreaker where they sold out right before Christmas (driving the price up up up) then restocked them in January. You never know with these exclusives.
So I would say if you can find it at retail, buy it now or possibly regret it later.
Let me be the first to suggest that the old box should command atleast 25% more than the new box once it retires in 2020.
(I have a few in the old box, so I'm arbitrarily setting the market higher for the original box...)
I think that should sell like hot cakes , considering everyone of us those who don't have one , would find some consolation with a decent representation of the iconic Lego set and that itself is a statement and testament of how special the original set is .
Personally, I'm quite sure TLG already knows that better than someone like myself and done the math before calling on the repackage decision.
No my lords , TB is here to stay .... Least a full year from now .
Maybe we need to steer our wandering predicting minds towards Sydney ;)
A few interesting notes:
