The latest wave of Egg Attack Action figures pre-ordered from BigBadToyStore.com is shipping and we have to say...they are amazing! Great detail on the troopers (Riot Control, Megablaster Heavy Assault, and Clone), magnetic latching systems for the sidearms and backpacks, light up C-3PO and R2-D2 (with Princess Leia hologram projection option), and that awesome Dewback. Although they may be sold out, the site periodically restocks so place a pre-order for the next shipment when you can.

While picking up some of the 40th Anniversary Wave 1 of The Black Series, a GameStop employee asked me if I would be interested in pre-ordering other figures. I expressed my desire to pre-order the next 40th Wave or the Lando Calrissian/Royal Guard Wave and to my surprise they said yes to the latter. More after the jump....

For me the daily ritual of searching for clues of the rumoured UCS Millennium Falcon is almost as time consuming as hunting down the latest theory on Half-Life 3, but this time it seems to have paid off because entering the search term "UCS Millennium Falcon" delivers an intriguing result.

UPDATE: Whatever chicanery was going on twelve hours ago has now been fixed and the search throws back a more mundane "Sorry! No results found" result.

Reports are coming in, via the Eurobricks Forums, that the 75191 Jedi Starfighter with Hyperspace Ring has been found at a single Smyths Toys shop in Liverpool. While this would seem that this has been put out early, this set has been officially released in branches of Toys "R" Us in Singapore and has Brickfinder.net has posted a review of it already.

UPDATE: According to our smashing and nice great mates at Brick Fanatics this set is actually an exclusive to Smyths Toys in the UK, breaking with the expectation that Toys "R" Us would carry this set as a global exclusive.

Nothing ground-breaking here, but we have confirmation of more European prices - this time in Swiss Francs - for the twelve known LEGO The Last Jedi sets, supplementing the Eurozone prices for we posted in April. The direct source is the Mikado Hobby, Toys & Games website in the tiny tax-haven, I mean nation, of Liechtenstein but you can click on the thumbnail above to avoid a lot of scrolling. Look closely at the product code number (beginning with 411) and you'll see that the last five digits are the set numbers.

If you are still hunting the miniscale U-Wing Fighter then head to your nearest Walmart - or order it from Walmart.com - where it is currently selling for $8.99 (which is $4 more than LEGOLAND California had it for).
