So, finally just found my TRU flyer...in a fricken snow bank!!!
They have quite a bit on sale this week...

- ALL sets regular $79.99, on sale for $69.97

- ALL sets regular $27.99, are 2 for $40 (says 10 to choose from)

- ALL sets regular $34.99, are 2 for $60 (says 8 to choose from)

Not too bad...but not spectacular either.

EDIT: They also have a MOTHER's DAY promo on May 8th from noon-2pm....MAKE A MOTHER'S DAY LEGO FLOWER....100 per store! Doesn't say anything about cost...but does state "COURTESY OF LEGO", so I am guessing FREE!!!

Well the collectible mini-fig cases should be arriving in early June. Not sure how much of course till it arrives, since sometimes it's short shipped etc. But for sure we'll have lots of them available.

But it was in theory a one time purchase/stores had to purchase the first wave in JUNE only, after that it's gone/probably sold out anyways given the hype it's been given.

But to make things fair we may have to limit people to just grabbing a bag/no bar code reading/no bar code scanning etc. we deal mostly with families/kids now, and we want it to be fair to all. Right?

I would guess that it's even going to be more random than that...I would think they are all going to contain the same barcode...I guess it's possible, but I am thinking, based on this pic, it's all going to be the same....and even why the have all of the "?" question marks all over the packaging.

Who knows, maybe there is only 1 DIVER fig in every case...

I'll report back on just what the distribution per case is when my order comes in :)

Until I see them, yes it's hard to tell what LEGO is doing. Stories have ranged from originally bags of random parts for random figs, to now complete figs, but the distribution is unknown. Some people say 3 complete sets, with the rest as random, so 12 random. Who knows!!

looks like the first Lego Store in Canada (correct me if I'm wrong!) but yeah super excited! & I live in Calgary too.

BTW: for those interested in the Millenium Falcon it's seems it's already SOLD OUT.

Yep, 1st in Canada! I can't believe it'll be right in my own city too. I never thought that would happen.

As for the Millennium Falcons... they're all being canceled as we speak.

Do not order it in Canada, because each Minifig is priced for $2.99CAD. So a display case of 60 will cost you at least $180.

It's better to order from a US retailer, because our dollar is still so strong. In USD it's priced @ $2 each, or $120 for 60.

Here's one online US store, including shipping is still cheaper than Canadian retail price.

guess we wont know until someone gets their fist shipment, but do you think a case of 60 is sufficient to complete (min) one set or do you think a master case of 120 is required?

Nope, not ALL, look like Lego will honor up the 2 falcon by customers at the price error.
