New SW Nintendo DS Case

Here's an interesting little addition to the world of SW LEGO Collectibles, a Nintendo DS case
complete with 21 unique printed tiles forming a familiar scene, X-Wings flying with the Millennium Falcon.

Rumour has it that it'll be about $15 and will likely appear wherever the Nintendo DS is sold
(Toys R Us has specifically mentioned that it will be stocked, thus far).

I'll probably buy 2 or so, I really want those tiles.
I'd love it if the Lego Company made more of these items, this DS carry case is great :thumbup:

It is ok but I think for the DS it would get lost as the tiles would fall off and for pieces it is better off getting it off bricklink. I will not get it myself but it is a good product for some people.

Ur... Isn't this old news? I heard about this a few months back. Anyway, even though I have a DS, I doubt I'll buy this. There's a slight chance I'll get it for the tiles, but that's it.

I've never been a fan of cases for handheld games.

I do like the tiles it comes with, but if I had a DS I think I would still pass on this.

The set is $15, it isn't a rumour at all.  It's been onsale for a few weeks now.

That's kind of neat, but I'd be concerned about the picture tiles getting scratched, scuffed, or nicked.

I wonder if they'll make a protective case for it Posted Image

Guaranteed purchase for me. I'm still wondering what's stopping all the tiles on the top from falling off when you chuck the DS in a bag or something. As cases go, it's fairly ugly, but it manages to combine 3 of some of my favourite things: Star Wars, Lego and gaming.

I saw this a few weeks ago. Nothing all that exciting, but I would get it for the collectible printed tiles. Maybe they'll be worth something in 10 years.  :thumbup:

Is this for the DSi or DS Lite?  

I'd get it for the tiles, but a case for the DS seems a little superfluous (at least for my needs).

I might buy it, but the only problem I would have was if the tiles were stickers. :cry_sad:

It says the tiles are printed and although I like the tiles I will not buy it.
