If you've received a US Shop-at-Home holiday catalog, you'll have seen that the Hobbit sets are listed in it, and will be available from November 27th. The prices are as follows:
79000: 105 pieces, $9.99
79001: 298 pieces, $29.99
79002: 400 pieces, $49.99
79003: 652 pieces, $69.99
79004: 334 pieces, $39.99
79010: 841 pieces, $99.99
However news just in, suggests that some Fred Meyer stores in the USA have already started selling the sets.
Meanwhile in the UK, Toys R Us has listed four of the sets, which it says will be available on Dec. 01:
79000: £12.99, 79002: £49.99, 79003, £59.99, 79004: £39.99
Let's hope the 10% TRU markup is included in those prices.
The picture above is of the Goblin King Battle which I reviewed yesterday which, based on the above prices and the £:$ ratio of these sets, will probably cost £89.99 in TRU.
