Aparently it's a "special edition" because it's TRU/S@H exclusive.

Thanks for the review.  Mine's on order with S@H - they had a special 4-in-1 bundle with this, the post van, the freight plane and the new freight truck and forklift with money off.  Can't wait!

Nice review LT.  Thanks for sharing.  I picked this up today at TRU.  Would you mind telling me the $ you paid.  Mine was $16.99 and the Mail Van $9.99.  TRU seems to be a bit higher on their Lego (compared to Lego SAH).  Unless your store is the same as LSAH.

Yeah, it was $16.99, but I ordered my Mail Van from S@H.

i got a likely same issue. I got mine in a bag 5 and came with two DarkBley helicopter wings.
And my set didn't include an extra green stud.  :-/

No, fooled you, didnt I? It's actually the box for Star Wars Battlefront 2 for the PSP. Aparently, it was a hit game for the PSP.

Thanks for the review.  If my local TRU doesn't stock up on Indiana Jones soon, this'll be on my watch list.
