It was £750. We were shafted on the ISD too, with it costing the same as the Falcon at £650

Wasn’t the ISD the same price as the MF in all markets? so that wasn’t so unusual but the AT-AT being the same price as the ISD/MF in the US and Europe but £100 more in the U.K. was quite eyebrow raising so a £50 reduction is welcome.

It was cheaper in the US compared to the Falcon

Folks in the UK/EU should bear in mind that US prices do not include sales tax (which is typically another 8-10% on top of the list price, depending on which state and city you live in) whereas prices in £ and € have VAT already built in... which if I'm not mistaken can be as high as 20% in some regions? So it's not really fair to do a straight dollars-to-euros-to-pounds currency conversion and expect equal results.

Luke’s lightsaber includes a kyber crystal, represented by tr-light-blue 2x2 round bricks :thumbup: Nice attention to detail, now I wish Yoda’s counterpart included it as well

Just talked to my local LEGO store here in OKC. They will be receiving 21 copies of the AT-AT for Black Friday. Someone called who lives four hours from the store and apparently will be leaving at about midnight to get here! Not sure how early I'll be going, but our store opens at 6 AM and I feel I may need to be there a few hours early to get a copy.

Not really sure how many people will find this info useful but for those in Slovenia (and possibly Austria/Balkan region) Mueller store has BB shuttle on discount for 80€ till the end of the year. Naturally I had to grab one myself. Check your local Mueller toy catalogue before you go shopping though

Not interested in the BB shuttle per se but they usually have nice discounts across their range, I think a visit to the one in Kp is in order for the next time I cross the border, thanks for the info :)

For those Mall of America peeps, they are getting ~100 AT-ATs. I will try online first, going to MoA on Black Friday...*shudders* 

Wow, that's a lot. It makes sense, for such a big city and high profile store. I'm going to go to my local store about 2 AM, 4 hours before opening. Overnight temp is 29 degrees. The things we do for LEGO!

They opened up the ATAT online orders a few minutes ahead of schedule.  Hope everyone gets one that tries!  I would have liked to get one in person to inspect the box but going into a mall on Black Friday just for the chance was too much to fathom.

I jumped on at about 11:50 EST and am still sitting in the waiting room (now 12:13 EST). Getting nervous...

EDIT: Got one! Woohoo! And the Skywalker lightsaber was still available!

Snagged one at Midnight on the button here...then the site went sideways as I went to see if they had more in stock.

Good luck to those waiting!

Just ordered and not a problem at all. Was definitely an impulse buy lol

In the UK, got up just before midnight to order the AT-AT, went to the page before the AT-AT became available and waited, got put into queue just after midnight but then was less than a minute before I was back on the page and able to order, which went through smoothly.

Looking now I see it's still available (along with the lightsabre) so not as much of an initial rush as I was expecting.

I suspect they had a larger stockpile than suspected - it also helps they are locking it to 1 per buyer - that kind of thinking is sadly lacking in most retailers.

I'd be surprised if they still have stock tomorrow to be honest.

I'm just glad I didn't have to drive anywhere and stand out in the cold. :)

I was purchase 8/24 at my local store (Brighton in the UK) got there about 15 minutes after they opened. About halfway through the build now, partway through box 3. Really good build, although the legs and undercarriage can be a bit fiddly and fragile until it’s all together

Still available in the UK with Luke's lightsaber and they've increased the number of maximum set purchases from 1 to 2.

On backorder for Aus/NZ now, shipping 8th December. Order limit has been 2 since it went live yesterday, and lightsabers are still available.

Strange they limited US/CDN? to 1 here at least initially....scalpers are kind of "everywhere" no matter country/region.

I also did not know about the lightsaber - was too busy in a mad dash to get the AT-AT - bonus! :)

Ha true! Thankfully I was able to get one online at about 10:55 PM CST. Should arrive tomorrow with some promo goodies! Now I don't need to worry about another system AT-AT, this is the peak unless they do another UCS one in the future.

Maybe I missed something since a little earlier in the month, but I just checked the LEGO Store website and it's showing the UCS AT-AT in stock for £699.99 now? Was it not £750? Did they quickly realise that £750 was unpalatable for most people?

Yep, the price suddenly dropped a few days after it first appeared. Don't believe there's been any official comment on it, so don't know if it was a mistake or they just responded to negative feedback.

Well, at least it's something! It definitely looks a little more pleasing with a 6 at the beginning. I see the set hasn't sold out either, which is strange for a UCS Star Wars set.
