Has anyone seen the Wonder Woman movie lego set? It's the one with a giant Ares in it.

Speed and Star Wars sets in my local Kmart... $45 now for the same size sets that were $39... disappointing especially as I was hoping to nab the clone tank but that price put me off, hoping big w will be cheaper.
$49 for the speeder is insane and it won't move as the box is half he size of the $39/$45 sets...

I'll wait till it goes on clearance like all the rogue one sets are. If I hadn't already gotten them at the heavy discount prices last summer I'd be snapping ten up now. Considering buying another tank and walker and flogging off the minifigs to recoup some of the price...

I popped into a shopping centre after work today & noticed that Big W, Target & Kmart all had new Star Wars, Speed Champs, Nexo Knights & Friends sets (Myer's toy section looked like it had been hit by a tornado... ). I wasn't looking at prices but man, how nice is that vintage Ford GT-40 build...

It's funny how just last night I spent nearly $100 on a variety of SW Bounty Hunter mini-figs on Bricklink (because I thought that particular set wouldn't show up here for quite a while...) & low & behold what did I find in the stores today... Oh well...

One of the guys at work pre-ordered the UCS Snowspeeder. It arrived today with an exclusive R2-D2.

I am scared to inquire about the prices at TrU, what with the Kmart price increases...

I wonder if they would put TFA sets on clearance anytime soon since the toys directly relate to the upcoming sequels. The Rogue One sets went on clearance too quickly, but I guess they only planned on making it a short run to begin with. Managed to pick up the U-Wing last month from Myer's multiple-stacking offers (clearance price + online discount), ended up being $69.

I picked up Vader's Transformation for $35 from Summer aka the Ryde Lady on Gumtree last week. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-seller/Summer/1001494590 She sold out of the Republic Tank at the time but it looks like she's got new stock on the weekend:
$35 Vader's Transformation, Republic Tank, or Luke's Landspeeder
$65 Quadjumper

The first two Freemaker seemed like a flop, so I'm not surprised that retailers has been too keen on the next two sets. After watching vid reviews for Tracker I & The Arrowhead, I think I will be saving my money and non-existent display space for the big TLJ sets. Real missed opportunity with The Arrowhead - I had hoped it was closer to the Hammerhead Corvette from Rogue One.

TLJ sets, SPOILER ALERT: https://geekculture.co/leaked-2017-l...jedi-box-sets/
- If those EU/US prices can be relied upon, then 75190 looks like it will retail for approx. AUD$250; 75189 approx. rrp. AUD$235; 75188 approx. rrp. AUD$190
