Thanks.
They are available online:

http://www.toysrus.com/search/index....S/2254197&sr=1

Stockman set is out of stock and an R Us Exclusive.

Way over priced though


If you spend $100 on lego you get $25 off though you are still over paying.

They have been having bogo 50% sales lately on lego though.

Here is a 15% coupon for in store:

I don't have much experience price shopping legos. Would a Lego retail store be cheaper than Toys R Us?

Pretty much any store is cheaper than Toys R Us at least at this time. Refer to the first post for regular retail prices and then compare them to Toys R Us prices. Even after a 15% or even the $25 off $100 they have going on now the legos are still more expensive then normal retail price.

I've never been a Lego guy, so I can't say what's fair or not, but for what they are, don't those prices seem totally overblown?

Yes, I would have bought that Krang/Foot Soldier set for $9.99 but not $17.99.

Yall obviously aren't lego buyers. As rule legos are usually priced around $0.10 a piece...so the prices are about average to other sets of similar size.

I'm a clearance and bogo LEGO collector. Full price is definitely hard to collect.

Thank you for the pictures, spiderpumpkin!

OMG they want $17.99 for that tiny Kraang set!? They gotta be out of their MINDS. That set is 12.99 and it's already expensive for what you get at that price.

I will wait... I refuse to pay TRU prices. Do not give TRU your business when they do this, we can't let pricegouging like this pass. a 10% markup I would accept but this is outrageous.

If anyone buys them let's see more pics

By the way... The Baxter set is not 100% TRU exclusive, you can still get it inside LEGO retail stores or off lego.com, don't forget. The downside being you have to wait for them to receive stock later this month. TRU always gets stuff early.

Had I been the one taking these pics I miiiight have caved and bought the Baxter set, just to make it easier/faster to get. The $5 markup on it isn't that horrible, but on the Kraang set? EEeeep. Wait for amazon or just get them off lego.com

Brickshow has its first TMNT review. They will eventually review every set, like they always do.

He said he has more sets already but he didn't reveal which ones! The videos will be going up shortly.

The Baxter are hard to find but tru gave me the discount of $25 off per $100 spent.

I will pick the sets up when they are buy one get one free, which they will be. They say Baxter is "hard to find" because it is limited to TRU, I believe, but just like most TRU exclusives, they won't be hard to find.

It is true, the 'hard to find' labeling is just a way of saying it is a retailer exclusive. It's not rare by any means, you just won't be able to find it at many stores.

I did pick up the Krang and Leo NYCC exclusive mini figs for my collection a while back. I will pick up whatever other exclusives come out, just not rushing out for the mass retail stuff.

Went to toys r us today, they had the kraang set, the shredder bike set, and the turtle van escape shenanigans. I was gonna get the two smaller ones if they would price match lego.com but unfortunately they wouldn't. Toy's R Us "price match guarantee" is pretty useless. They told me I'd need a paper ad. Seriously? To be fair I did get them to price match walmart without them even being able to find the price for basic figures back when they were 7.77 so... I guess you win some you lose some. (Also, my toysrus had these sets marked up even more then what you guys are saying.)
