Did my good deed for the season. Went by a couple of local TRU to check their stock on 75056. One was all out, the other had 1 hidden behind a Super Heroes sets. Saw a mother looking in the spot where

Craziest thing... my wife was just at the TRU looking for any 75056 left.  She didn't see any at first, and then some weirdo dug one out from hiding at put it back on the shelf where it was supposed t

I'm waiting until October for double VIP. I predict these will be easier to come by this year, I bet they learned from last year when they probably could have sold another 50% above what they did. 

 

In the NW these are on the shelves at some (but not all) Fred Meyer as well.

i grabbed one last week from a local toy store (Kite and Kaboodle). I was going there for something else but saw them on the shelf... The manager told me that it was the only shipment she was expecting. She mentioned that it was probably their last large shipment of 2014 as they've been having a hard time getting Lego sets period.

 

This store had rovers, has Ecto-1s, Simpsons Houses, Technic of all kinds and is hoping to acquire some Exo and RIs. We don't have a Lego B&M store so it seems that this particular store has a line of exclusives.

That scenario has crossed my mind. Last year Lego probably compared sales from the ones before and only made so many otherwise retailers did the same comparisons and just made significantly smaller orders. In any case, there could be a somewhat larger number of these advent calendars made for this year by contrast to the last one. As usual we won't know until we get there and by then it is too late.

I know this is the Star Wars advent calendar thread, but since there has been talk of the Friends and City advent calendars as well, I'll mention it.  Christianbook has them for $27.99 which is 7% off(no Star Wars listed yet, sadly).  Bonus is they only charge sales tax to Massachusetts and Colorado residents.  In stock date of 9/19.

Haha, Darth Santa is the next big controversy I guess.

Well, they (christian themed merchants) don't seem to have problems with Star Wars in general:

I predict these STAR WARS Advent Calenders will sell out faster than last year.
