What do you think? Are you planning to pick up either or both of the sets? Or are they on your wish-list? I’m definitely eyeing the Ewok Village, although I’m going to have to be really good for Santa to bring me one! What about you? Will you get them?

First Comment Yay 🙂
I have been waiting for those sets for a long time
I want the ewok village the more than the Sydney Opera House
the Sydney Opera House neat but it costs a little much
But why do both of them say that they are Lego vip exclusives
Yeah, I want the Ewok Village too! As I mentioned in the post, both sets are currently available for VIPs only. They will be available for non-VIPs on September 1st. 😉
yes, yes, yeah!!!!!! Ewok Village! I should probably start saving up! really! i’m a V.I.P or as my grandma would say vip. seriously, i’m not joking. now that I read your comment admin I understand now that the thing is only for V.I.Ps so that’s cool! not to advertise or anything but being a V.I.P is easy and free! and sometimes you get free stuff! like me and my sister onetime when we got a retiring spedors thing. spedors cool theme, not so much but the online game is cool, like I said… not to advertise or anything.
what does it mean? “your comment is awaiting moderation” what is this?
Don’t worry about it. It just means the system wants me to check your comment before it gets approved. You may have used a word it didn’t like. It happens sometimes.
Yeah, there is absolutely no downside to being a VIP. It is free, and the most improtant thing is that you get points with every purchase, sometimes even double points. Which of course adds up and converts to cash you can use for a future purchase. Also, you can get early-bird access so sets, like what you see here. 🙂
Love the village so much!!! But I thought it was a little taller than 1” high.
LOL! Nice catch! That’s actually direclty from LEGO’s website, so I guess they made a typo. I just changed it to 13 inches – I guess that’s what they meant. 🙄
so true admin, so true.
The Ewok Village looks nice! Unfortunately that’s out of my price range as I plan to buy Orthanc as soon as I can. I don’t really like the Architecture sets that much though, so I will not try to buy the Opera House (I also don’t like Opera).
If, somehow, I could find $250 laying around I would buy the Ewok Village. I hope they make a similar set for Lothlorien in LOTR.
A LOTR set this size would be spectacular and a dream come true! 😛
me too! maybe a mount doom, or minas tirth would work too, a huge 5,000 piece minas tirth would be awesome!
No!!! Not a Minas Tirth!!! I’d go bankrupt!!!
If you can wait… everyone is talking about the September promo already; WUS $75 get a free mini VW Camper.
would love the ewok village but im saving up for the larty (LA-AT/I), hopefully next year theres gonna be a VIP exclusive for star wars as my amount of money is going up all they time I don’t see LEGO. I dont really want to opera house though, I like sets with figs
typo I put ” – up all they time – ” I meant “the” not “they”
The Ewok village has been order and its on its way. I may have to move in it because of how big it is. Of course I always say LEGO is a lot like Jell-O their is always room for it.
LOL! Also, almost as expensive as a real house… just kiddin’ 😛
depends on the house 🙂
I read about a calculator on the Internet calculating the costs of a real-life Lego house, by ordering the bricks new. It wasn’t cheap…
Yeah, I wrote about that calculator sometime back. It was fun. And as you said; the bottom line was that a real LEGO house would be very expensive!
Alright! 5 out of 7 polybags obtained!
I’ve gotten the Daily Mail polybag for today, the Lone Ranger Pump Cart, and an exlusive Geoffrey polybag from TRU. The Geoffrey polybag basically took me the whole day to get, as I hop from TRU to TRU to get. But it was totally worth it.
Congrats, it annoyed me somewhat that the pump cart couldn’t work with Lone Ranger holding it, but at least it was kinda cute.
I was wondering if you will be getting those! 😛
Aha I was gonna ask if you got those. I’ve got the LR one and thought about the Geoffrey giraffe one but decided against it. Instead I bought the Orc forge! It was going cheaper and I considered it before so I had to get it 😀
It’s really awesome!!! I finally have a BURP and a new light-up brick. I still have the old exo force ones 😆
