So after TRU jived all over my 20% off $100+ purchase coupon since the fact that the Bricktober "promo" compromises the coupon's ability to take the edge off TRU's already exorbitant LEGO prices, I put back the Vampyre Castle and picked up the new Star Wars Old Republic Fighter.
The fact that the ship converts from a "jedi-fighter-esque" mode to a "Z98-esque" mode made this an instant buy, even at a $5+ premium. I'm a little surprised that the set comes with a R2-esque droid that doesn't interface some way with the ship. (Sorry for all the 'esques.' I'm not versed in the Old Republic game so I'm actually out of my element - I think the "Shan" chick must be a relative of Bastila)
At least I've finally completed the Bricktober sets so I can go back to buying LEGO sets at MSRP or better from other retailers. Screw TRU and their ambiguous coupons.
Yeah that set is pretty damn awesome. Satele Shan is a descendant of Bastila and Revan. I love that utility droid -- T7-O1. I just need to buy the Sith Fury-class Interceptor. Next year's Old Republic troop builder sets are pretty damn awesome.
