Seems overpriced at $270. Isn't that the same number of figs as jokerland?

I know there's more pieces, but it's an open backed play set.

WTF is Lego trying to do to me? I just finished the Brick Bank and Wall-E and now the Batcave? Don't even mention Ghostbusters and whatever awesome UCS Star Wars they have planned for May 4th (probably a new Falcon). I might just go get a job at the Lego store for the 50% off discount...

more and more sets are breaking that $250 barrier. lol it was a $200 barrier 3 years ago. but the price per piece is still fair, and I'm loving all these big sets.
Im in for the snowspeeder. And I hope Captain Rex's Walker is the one from Rebels. It's home to Rex, Wolffe, and.., I dunno. It's after the clone wars and these guys went into self exile like Yoda. Now they live in a custom AT-TE and hunt gigantic sand worms. Rex is still a badass.

Bank getting higher or wider? Another wide-section with a BIG vault would be cool!

Has the Ai Wei Wei drama been discussed here yet?

It was talked about somewhat back in October when he was talking about LEGO refusing his order, but not since. Sounds like they are changing their policy again!

I think that policy was originally established after this happened?
