Took advantage of the double VIP and got the nutcracker and yellow tote bag with my London Bus at the Mall of America LEGO store. Turns out there was a Women of NASA just sitting at the checkout, so I got that too :)
Regarding the "it doesn't fit with the others" complaints - real towns aren't full of buildings that all match styles/eras, and you can rearrange yours if you don't like how one looks next to another. I like this one and might pick it up before some of the older ones I don't have yet.
^ Just pointing out a common mistake. Unless your B&N does it differently than the ones around here, 25% off plus the 10% member discount is not 35% off. They apply the 10% discount to the price after the 25% is taken off, so the total discount is only 32.5%. Example: $100 x 0.75 = $75. $75 x 0.9 = $67.50.
Probably most of the SW constraction figures I bought when they were going for $5 at Walmart. The only one I really wanted was K2SO.
Lol, I usually only get the non human/helmeted ones since I think helmeted/droid characters actually work well with the series and most look good....but $5 at Walmart had me pick up Chirrut Imwe. Every time I look over at the shelf I think of how much I hate it. Going to toss him in a drawer and forget about it.
The other one I'm glad I did get was Darth Vader for $7. I'd also consider a classic storm trooper.
