    This just in from the FWIW department:

    I just received the new LEGO Shop @ home catalog and Christmas came early!!!!

    The original X-wing set that was sold in 1999 is available again for only $29.99!! I've seen these same sets on ebay for upwards of $50!!

    Also, re-released is the TIE Fighter and Y-wing set for 49.99, I got this one on ebay for less than retail a while back, but nice to see that they are re-releasing things!

    Another one that is an internet/phone exclusive is the B-wing with Rebel Control Center for $29.99. These generally run much less on ebay.

    Now for the biggie!! The Imperial Star Destroyer has been backordered for shipment on Dec 6, 2002 due to unforseen demand for the product??!! (Like every one doesn't want a fleet of these!) Also, the special introductory price of $269 is only good till Dec 31st and if you order over $99, you get free shipping! (wow a bargain)

    All of the above sets are online exclusives, they are not in stores anymore, but can more than likely be found on ebay with the exception of the SD, which hasn't shown up yet.

    Phone 1-800-453-4652
    Online Lego.com

    If the Millenium Falcon fiasco is anything to judge by, get these sets NOW! I got my Falcon set for $99 on the LEGO site eventhough they were slightly cheaper on ebay, well now they are going for twice that on ebay and aren't even available through LEGO anymore.

    Enjoy!

    Bummer news--
    Looks like the date for delivery of the ISD has been pushed to December 17th.

    On the upside, the UCS Darth Maul Bust is on sale for $119.99, and, the UCS Naboo starfighter is available gift-wrapped.

    Also, in case you missed it on the official site or here at tf.n, if you renew or subscribe to SW Insider you will receive an exclusive bagged LEGO mini-TIE set. These LEGO mini sets will start showing up next year, but the TIE will not be available through LEGO, only through this offer or probably ebay. This is only while supplies last, and I was unable to determine if there are any left.
