It would appear that Costco now has the City 2013 advent calendar out in some locations, priced at 27.99 Can.
Thank you Brickset user Christina for the news.
They had both new advent calendar at my local toysrus in Virginia.
I saw the star wars one at the Lego store at Tyson's Corner (VA)...not sure if they had the city one or not.
Found One At Toys R Us Massachusetts! Looks Good!!
I found all three calendars at Toys R Us and the LEGO store in Arizona.
They have Christmas stuff coming out already!!! Wow. I thought it was bad when it started in October. Before you know it we'll be having Christmas sales in July!
^ Christmas in July... already happened, (they also do Christmas in July in the Southern Hemisphere some places).http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolph_and_Frosty%27s_Christmas_in_Julybut yeah, it is disturbing to see Holiday decorations already adorning Costco. On a good note if you are looking for the Dorling Brickmaster books Costco have them very reasonably priced at $14.49US. I picked up the new Star Wars today, they also had Ninjago, City, and I believe Friends.
i hope i can get the city advent calendar when it comes out in the uk.yeah i think august is i bit to early to start selling christmas stuff.
I wonder if the early sales of the calendars is meant to get them a sense of how many people will buy them. Because I know that the Tyson's store, at least, had a *ton* of the star wars advent calendars left in late december (which is how I eventually got mine rather cheaply).
The Star Wars set was also really overpriced last year; I believe it was $50. This year the Friends set was $29.99 and Star Wars was $39.99. I'll be interested to see what the Friends one looks like when my daughter eventually builds it. It looks pretty skimpy from the pictures on the box.
Schaumburg lego store had Friends, city and Star Wars in stock.
LEGOLAND Windsor has all 3 Advent Calendars apparently.
Didn't see either of them at a Target yesterday. Usually I hold off on Star Wars until clearance. Last year, I got it marke down from $49.99 to $12.50 or so at the Lego store!
LEGO Store in Edmonton had both 2013 City and Star Wars Advent Calendars as of last night!
I saw it there yesterday (at my local Costco)...No SW calendar yet...Too bad.
My TRU got the City and SW calendars this past week
Our local LEGO store stocks the City, Firends and Star Wars 2013 advent calendars.
My Wal-Mart still has a couple 2012 SW ones, "clearance" priced at $29. Yeah, still too rich for me, $20 or less and we're talking.
Saw both today at TRU in New Hampshire. Too early!
Do Costco stores in the US carry LEGO? Because I've never seen any at our's...
I've seen it only once,, the 2010 Fire Helicopter, but they do have the books that have bricks with it last time I checked, which was only 3 days ago.
I saw it at my Costco, so I picked it up. I also saw the Temple of Light set for $65 which is much better than $90.
