There is a gimmick about the list price.

Amazon.co.jp starts from 28% discount.

Then the actual price is around 110 eur.

Saw a shelf tag at Toys R Us today. $119, but no date. Actually had about 4 feet wide space w/ multiple tags, so I assume this store is getting a LOT of these.

I was expecting $140-$150 given how expensive 8043 was.

At a price of $120, 8070 is a must-buy. The 8297 Off-Roader cost $120 and provided a comparable number (and more importantly, assortment) of parts. Plus, if TRU is stocking 8070, we might eventually be able to buy it at a 20-30% discount. :thumbup:

Yes! Toys R Us runs a 20% discount about once every 6 weeks and you can use it on anything except for video games and baby products :thumbup:

YES!!!!

Also called TRU today to ask when they're available.

With a little luck 8070 could be there by the end of next week.

Would be a great b-day present. :blush:

Apologies if this has been covered earlier, but is 8070 an Argos exclusive in the UK? I see it's not available on lego.shop.com or Amazon for the UK.

Unfortunately Argos' stock doesn't seem to be very regular either. :sceptic: Anyone have any informed news/opinion on whether they are likely to get more at a later date and also have them in-store as opposed to on-line only?

Many thanks!

I'm in Scotland, and being tight I want to use a gift card as part purchase. Only you can't use that on-line, and I've yet to see a local store have it in stock or "reserve for collection".

Thanks for the info, I'll just keep my eyes peeled.

Can't wait to lay my hands on one of these sets.

The parts assortment is enough of a reason to get one (or two...)

Too slow... out of stock online.

Wow, that went quick. I ordered two about 3 hours ago and I just went back to order two more. Too bad. Does anyone know what the real US price will be? Is 119 with a toys r us markup, or is that retail?
