    @monkyby87 That's really strange when I checked at about 8 this morning it had a ship date by it.

    Just took a look, [email protected] US currently says "We are currently making more, so please check back soon for availability."

    they must have sold a lot thanks to resellers. they can wait a year and pull the same trick again until resellers get tired of sitting on a growing pile of death stars

    This set is the set I regret buying the most. For some reason I thought I wanted it and it just sits in its shipping box laughing that I wasted $400 on it.
  • LegoTTLegoTT Member Posts: 483
    Probably will have a new box and new minifigures.

    Didn't they just redesign the Tower Bridge box?
  • piratemania7piratemania7 New EnglandMember Posts: 2,147
    ^ yes they did and don't worry that will be rereleased too!

    I keep seeing rumors that Lego is toying with keeping some sets out longer and just making them online only. I guess we will see.
  • DoubleDDoubleD Oklahoma, USAMember Posts: 488
    @ISDAvenger if you can come and get it I probably would sell it for 350

    What was the new Tower Bridge like? Does this mean it will be around for some time yet?

    Thanks I only just got one as thought it was on its way out and didn't want to miss it guess its around to stay, guess mine has the higher part count as its new but hard to tell as out boxes don't have this on the front.

    With the death star I might have gone for it if they had updated it just a little with newer figures especially the protocol droids.
  • monkyby87monkyby87 Member Posts: 316
    So, do we know what the differences are/will be between them?  Just some miscellaneous parts that are replaced due to availability or something?

    I bought one a couple of months ago as, like you, I din't want to have to pay the prices once it went OOP. Mine is the old box though, so I would be interested to see what the difference is.

    Really for how long is DS TB or any other set that got a new box is sticking around?
    The new boxes could be just a cost cutting way of standardizing their boxes, and maybe that helps with storing and shipping them.
    As for the DS, are they making enough to finish off the year? Making enough to have stocks for the beginning of the year to hope that the next movie will spur sales? Or just making enough to sell out almost immediately and then be the 'hot toy no one can find' for Christmas?

    I don't know if being a hot toy nobody can find really benefits them.

    Wow...didn't see that coming... :)
  • mr_bennmr_benn United KingdomMember Posts: 908
    It's never been retired in the UK, so I doubt this is a re-release - I think that's a different concept to simply 'making more'?

    Definitely still in my top 5 sets :)
  • yys4uyys4u USA SoCalMember Posts: 1,092
    How many of you who never got the set are going to purchase it now? Just curious cause I've never been particularly wowed by it, but am leaning towards buying it now just in case its the next Millennium Falcon. I wouldn't sell it, I actually enjoy owning something I know is valuable, but because its been around for so long I'm inclined to think it wont follow that path. I'm just wondering who's in the same boat as me. 
  • TwoToneBricksTwoToneBricks KCMember Posts: 37
    I honestly didn't know it was x years old until it disappeared in July. I always wanted it but couldn't justify it. My fiancé finally said ok right when it disappeared. So naturally I was clicking refresh hoping to buy it everyday. It's supposed to be at my house Wednesday. Well see if they changed the packaging or piece count on it. Very excited and also happy I didn't have to pay anything over retail.

    I'm not pulling the trigger, it never appealed to me much.
    In terms of collectibility, I also think there will be far too many out there for it to go the same way as the Falcon. Of course, if they rereleased 10179 it'd be a very different story, but that doesn't need to be said!

    Fire Brigade had two different boxes in its lifetime - when I bought mine right at the end of its life last year, there were several of one box and one of another.

    It says sold out again for me. I was on a mobile device not sure if that matters.

    Says sold on the Hard to find, or SW page, or when you actually are on the 'item' page? On the actual DS page it was showing that we are making more message.
    UPDATE:
    As of right now in the US, it is showing out of stock, expected ship date is Sept 20th, 15

    Yes.  If the set survives long enough, it starts generating its own pieces.

    Darn it, didn't realise that [email protected] would get the Death Star back so soon, I ordered mine from Smyths a few days ago, however I did get £12 off.
  • YodaliciousYodalicious DagobahMember Posts: 1,366
    I always chuckle when I see the "Hard to Find" tag on the Death Star. Any set out that long isn't all that hard to find.
