Shanghai Escape

I've been wanting to purchase this since I first saw it on the shelf:

I want it for the cars, and I also love Indy's tux. What I don't want is to spend $40.00 on it. Why does LEGO have to be so pricey? I suppose it could be worse, though. I'll try and stop by the Toys 'R' Us soon to pick it up, because when I want something, it eats at me until I get it.

Indy's Tux is perfect to make a Picard "Dixon Hill" figure. The new hairpiece on the gal is nice, as are the updated black fedoras.

The cars are nice, but there really aren't any unique parts in them - other than the ragtop anyway. Depending on the size of your brick stash you might be able to just download the instructions from lego.com and have 'em without the expense... You really are just paying for the figures.

Still. it's one of the few sets lately that really does seem worth the $$$. If you start to feel bad, pick up one of the newer bionicle sets with eight pieces for $10+ and breathe easier...

My brick stash isn't so great, so I guess I do need to buy it for the car parts too.
