    Just saw these at Target (apparently they launched yesterday) and I got to admit, they look kind of interesting.

    The best by far is Sindragosa and the Lich King.

    Here is the review for the set:

    Sindragosa and The Lich King! | BlizzBloks

    And some additional sets:

    And all available sets:

    Anyone else buying these?

    I remember first hearing about these. I'm glad I don't play anymore, otherwise I'd probably buy a lot of the sets. As it is I'm kind of tempted to get a couple. I really like the Stormwind/Deathwing set, but I'm not dropping $100 on it.

    Yea, some of the prices on these are outrageous you know?

    $65 I think for the Zeppelin set, $100 for Deathwing.

    I think $35 is a nice price for Arthas, his throne and Sindragosa but the rest of these, I don't know, it seems like these came out a little bit too late in WoW's life.

    If these hit a few years ago, they would be selling like hotcakes. I see a lot of these sets like Deathwing hitting clearance before long.

    Reminds me of the "Dragons" line the use to make.

    Even that line had an icy skeleton dragon.

    I want that Arthas set bad. I'll wait until it clearances though. I found the 12.95 mounted riders at Target last week and almost picked up the tauren set. He looked cool.

    I must admit the Zeppelin and Lich King sets are tempting.

    I saw a few of these at Target yesterday. Pretty cool looking sets.

    The Litch King/Arthas looks like something from Warhammer 40K, but at the same time cool enough that I might pick him up simply to have a little King of the Undead for laughs.

    I'd also probably buy a Leroy Jenkins set for more or less the same reasons.

    I picked up the Lich King set Friday night. Sindragosa (the dragon) is fantastic. I am incredibly enthused to have a little Lich King on his frozen throne sitting on my desk. I also picked up the Ragerock and Blood elf set. The minifigs are quite good. I haven't picked up the single human pack yet because every one of them I've seen have REALLY odd eyes.

    The Night elf will be going home with me tomorrow when I go get groceries :D

    I went to TRU yesterday and since I couldn't find any Marvel Universe to buy, I ended up caving and bought the Gryphon rider set. The gryphon itself is so-so, but the worgen death knight that came with it is pretty awesome. I'm really tempted to get the 4-pack of single figures with a little bit of landscape with them now. BBTS has them at a good price, gotta check and see if we have them at work first.

    Watch out on Colton and Ragerock. Their eye can look wonky. The two Elves are decent though! I actually got Colton and Ironoak tonight along with the Demolisher Attack set.

    Overall positive: A fun set to build, A very cool and very detailed minifigure, a decently sized dragon.

    Overall negative: A bit expensive for the number of regular, non-specific pieces. If I could have purchased the minifigure by itself, I would have.

    That Arthas looks really good. I wish they'd do blind-packed mini figs like they do for Halo and such, I'd actually buy those things.

    The Lich King set is ace. Sindragosa makes me want to pick up the Deathwing set badly.

    So I'm starting to get kinda pissed at the secret loot in the big sets. Of the three sets I've gotten, all three have had the same sword.

    Anyone have either of the helms they want to trade?

    I used the 20% TRU coupon that came in an email today to get the Stormwind set. Deathwing is fantastic! I also got the 2h mace (can't remember its name, but its from Naxxramas) in it. That castle took hours to build too.

    I wish there was an explanation as to how TRU sends out these coupons. I keep seeing discussions about receiving them, yet I rarely get them. When I do get one, like last week's text coupon, I go to use it two days before the expiration date, and when I click on the link, I'm greeted with an image saying that it is no longer available.

    ...ending rant...

    On topic, nice to hear you received a different weapon this time out! I am very tempted to dive into these with the Arthas set. The only thing keeping me from doing so is the knowledge that once I get that one, I'll probably have to buy everything else, too.

    I think I can stay strong, provided they don't make a NE Shadow Priest in translucent purple, or start packaging hunter figures with various pets... then I'm 100% screwed.
