This isn't good... :pir-hmpf:

Yet again, TLG has found it fit to release highly-anticipated sets in the US waaay before they're due.
The event that usually follows this is that the EU and Australia then have to wait until next year to get their paws on them.

Let's pray that this isn't the case and they'll be hitting the stores just in time for Christmas!

A heads up; I've ordered almost the whole line over the phone, and they're shipping it to me many, many states away, so for those in the U.S., you can order them from FL over the phone and have it shipped!  :thumbup:

Great news - though didn't a German catalogue state that they'd be coming out in May?

Hopefully this means that they'll be coming out in January (or sooner) in the rest of the world...

When I get the sets I will review them. Probably the ship and soldier base. Maybe even the Pirate base. I can't wait until Sunday! :D

So you called the LEGO store there and they ship to your house?

I have special eyes my dear friend!

Or maybe I looked to the Flickr slideshow which shows these pics in a very high resolution on which you can read the price labels  :pir-tongue:

If those prices are correct, they are not too bad!

Lego12, of course we want reviews! :pir-tongue:  As long as they are up to academy standard. :pir-wink: :shark:

Yes, of course. :pir-classic: Well, should I post them in the Reviewer's Academy first and then in the public forums?

The top looks like its $30.....but using common sense, its probably what Bonaparte said. Now if it is $30, I'll be impressed.

Which sets do you think I should buy?

*passes out from excitement*

So they ship...? I know what I'm getting for Christmas this year now =P - maybe if I split up the requests between the family members I can pick the whole line up ^.~

And Lego12, depends on how much you have - obviously the two highest in demand would be the ship and fort, but I'd also like to see either the soldier impulse or the cannon battle. Actually, let me know if the impulse sets are there - that's a big deal to me.

Unfortunately, however, the ship is $99.99 USD - I thought it'd be $80 tops! The gentleman at the store said they're due to be released two weeks before christmas (much like Indiana Jones was) so I'll have to wait and get it then; perhaps some TRU coupons will surface.  :jollyroger:

$100?! Ouch... :pir-cry_sad: I really hope the other sets aren't this badly priced, at least the ones Bonaparte showed us looked resonable. Did the guy say what the other prices were?  But two weeks before Christmas? That's great!
Hopefully that doesn't mean just TRU... I'd love to see these at Target before Christmas, now that would be a Christmas miracle! :pir-tongue:

I just called the Lego US offices and they said they had no clue that those sets had gone on sale!

Which number did you guys dial to order those sets please?
