    okay, we don't have any kids yet, but i am looking for the star wars playskool sets for the future deco droid jr. has anyone seen them lately??? i saw them at kb back in april and thought i'd buy them at wal-mart cheaper, and i haven't seen them since. now they're coming out with a millenium falcon (!!!) and i may have to buy one for myself and one for the future kiddo! so if anyone has these sets or has seen them lately, please give some coordinates! thanks!

    The last time I was in Houston, I found all of the sets at FAO Shwartz. They seemed to have plenty, but beware of thier inflated prices.

    Same problem here. about two weeks ago we finally found a set for Bebo Jr. at KB toys. They told us they are licensed to sell certain ones and WM is licensed for certain ones. However I haven't been to FAO in quite a while.

    Don't feel bad I'm 26 and I think they are great. The Ewok and Hoth scenes are really great. The falcon has to be the best one in my opinion. The Willowbrook Mall KB hasn't had anything in about a month. I've been checking every couple of days bc I'm trying to find the Millenium Falcon.

    well i finally found all the playskool sets, except for the falcon. i've been from baybrook to the galleria kb to pick up every set. when i do find the falcon, i think i'm going to have to get two because they are just the best!
    btw, i asked one girl at kb why they didn't have very many of these sets in their shipment, and she just said they're fairly new and they just want to make sure the sets will sell. huh??? that must be their standard reply since they must know how hard these are to find - i don't think tru even stocks them!
    my next hunt will be for the lego rebel blockade runner!!! anyone have one?

    I'm glad you found them. they are really cute the only reason they would have trouble selling them because the are awfully expensive for poor college students like me.

    I agree. They're awesome, but they are not cheap. There are greater things for me to spend my money on.

    you are so right, queenie.
    i mean, star wars lego sets are
    a greater deal by far...

    uh,... that IS what you were talking about, right...queenie? 43 star wars lego sets - not enough! right!?

    i need more shelf space...

    I found the Millenium Falcon at KB at Willowbrook yesterday along with the Arena set. There were two left yesterday afternoon. THe Falcon is so great plus the cool little figures. I just have to not eat for a while now.:)
    I haven't seen a blockade runner since the prices started dropping. Especially after they were dropped down the 50 bucks a week ago.
