Our friends at JediDefender have alerts us to news that 3 new LEGO Polybags have been revealed for 2014. Although the details of their release is unknown, it’s pretty much a safe bet that they’ll be distributed at Target, Walmart and Toys”R”Us here in the US. Head on over to GrooveBricks.com to check out Anakin’s green Jedi Starfighter, Imperial Shuttle and the ARC 170 Starfighter.
It looks like there is a new UCS Sandcrawler on the horizon courtesy of this rumor from Chowren Toys Facebook page.
Just got wind that in 2014 there is going to be a LEGO Star Wars UCS (Ultimate Collector Series) SandCrawler 75059. It will retail for $299.99 US. Not sure when the release date will be. I guess this is probably why the Cuusoo Sandcrawler http://ow.ly/rFQX9 did not get approved by LEGO.
Upon making my usual stop at Target this morning, I noticed that they have started affixing foil, tamper-evident, security stickers on all of their LEGO sets priced $29.99 or higher.
It would be nice if Toys”R”Us would utilize this method of theft prevention instead of using those Spider security devices we’ve all seen marring the boxes of vehicles like the Millennium Falcon, Republic Gunship and AT-AT.
Walmart has listed a few of their pre-Black Friday “Jumpstart Saving Event” items today. Head on over to checkout The Complete Saga on Blu-ray for $74.96, the LEGO Advent Calendar for $29.00 and a 31″ Vader and 212th Attack Battalion Clone Trooper bundle for $40.00
This week, Toys”R”Us is having a Buy one, get one 50% off sale on most LEGO Star Wars sets. Certain sets are already on sale and are not eligible for the promotion.
A heads-up for LEGO collectors, Target is starting to reset their aisle for the Halloween season and amongst the goodies, be on the lookout for the Umbaran MHC (Moblie Heavy Cannon) polybag set. I was able to find a few today at my neighborhood store.
