I would disagree with those who are complaining about the price. A quick look at the LEGO site shows that it is priced similarly to Mars Mission kits.
I didn't have time to elaborate earlier so I'll do it now. Probably a month too late. But anyway...
First of all when I say the price is to steep, I mean for my finances
. I'm not saying the sets aren't worth their price.
A$129.99 is just too much for me in one hit and it also costs another A$35.00 to ship it to Australia. So that's $154.99 in total. There are no LEGO Brand stores in my area, or anywhere in Australia as far as I'm aware, making shipping the only method of obtainment.
My other quandary is I don't understand why the sets cost US$99.99 in the USA which is A$104.99. Why I'm paying an extra A$25 for the same product when I'm already paying A$35 for the shipping? Are there hidden charges that are not already factored into the initial price?
If Star Justice was released as sets which I could buy individually then from a store, then I'd definitely consider buying them.
