Ohhhh!

They just dropped the US price by $100! It now says coming soon for USD $199.99! Our prayers have been answered! Was this done in other countries as well?

Canada also saw a 100 price drop.

Still not sure I'll be able to purchase it, though. :(

I admit that I was dead wrong on this topic as the set went on sale even before it was released. :oops: However, my prediction that the Cubs will win a world series this year is a certainty! :lol:

Perhaps as others have mentioned on this thread earlier, they set the price high to soften us up for the price it was to settle at. Most of the early talk on this thread was in the 150.00 range. Now I think most people will be thrilled with 200.00 USD price tag instead of disappointed.

All I can say is well played Lego... Well played indeed. (golf clap) :)

Now, I will need 5 of these pronto...

Great poem Justinain!

I agree with you. LEGO's manipulating us. I'm still not going to buy it. Lower it another fifty and I might, but not at two hundred.
May the blessing of the Lord be upon you. <><

Sweden – 2.2 x 7094 Kings Castle Sieges
Canada - 2.8 x 7094 Kings Castle Sieges
USA - 3 x 7094 Kings Castle Sieges



Thats revised to
Canada - 2.14 x 7094 Kings Castle Sieges
USA - 2 x 7094 Kings Castle Sieges

It will be cheaper now for me to wait to pick up a set of ebay or bricklink from the USA.

For the same amount a person could buy 80 impulse sets.
So:
40 Orcs and 40 knights, wich, including the extra armour, helmet, sword and shield in the Knight set and the extra spears in the Orc set would get you 200 armed castle figs. (And an army of Bubonic plague carrying rats :twisted: )


To quote Homer Simpson: WOO-HOO!!!!!!!!

So, to revise:
60 Impulse sets.
30 Orcs and 30 Knights
+ extra weapons, armour, helms, shields
= 150 armed castle figs.

verdict: impulse plan still better, IMHO.

Yay!

Canadian pricing is finally in line with the rest of the world. Too bad my student loans will probably make this an unlikely purchase.

Holy Crapes!

I can't believe they would actually drop the price by $100 like that.. I could actually see this start fitting into my budget now.

Just when you think you couldn't possibly love LEGO any more.. :)
