Toys R Us 2008 Preview

I know I still owe you guys reviews of the 2008 Exo-Force and Racers sets I picked up a couple of weeks back, but I thought those of you in the US might want to know that another wave of goodies is due to hit the shelves tomorrow. Check out this screen-cap from their on-line copy of tomorrow's sale advertisement:



Those are the new Star Was, Indiana Jones, and Sponge Bob sets. I know where a chunk of my LEGO budget is getting blown tomorrow...I hope I can still find that $10 off a $100 purchase coupon they mailed me...

Ive known about this for several months but now is the best opportunity to say it. In autumn 2008 LEGO are releasing a PC game called lego universe. It is a massively multiplayer online build stuff, use it community type game that has next to every part. Just imagine what you could do Chris, make serenity and show it off to other builders everywhere. There is a short trailer on You tube and a section dedicated to it at Lego.com so why not check it out?

Hey, Chris, what Exo-Force sets did you get? 1've seen like, 2 or 3 bigger $20 sets, and like, 3 or 4 smaller ones.

Nick: I picked up the entire 2008 line to date - Uh, two smaller sets, four mid size, one big tank thing. I think.

jimmythej: You might not be as impressed when you get it. The "battle damaged helmet" is actually just the faceplate from a diver set used as a collar. (Neck through the hole in the faceplate) A cool re-use of parts, but not as nifty as a new sculpt...

The new hair on the Jedi Anakin figure, though....*drool*
