Prices seem to vary by region: In Europe, it’s €89.99 (UK: £59.99); in the United States, it’s $89.99; and in Canada, it’s $130.

    that crazy , shop at home pricing . the canadian dollar is .94 something to the american dollar . Why on earth is there a 40 dollar difference >?!?!

    Dave, don’t take it personally, when it comes to pricing Europe usually gets shafted as well.

    I still need Cafe Corner though! : /

    So being a bit miffed about the price difference with the lovely new set I emailed lego and logged a complaint. And I actually got a response, written by a person, and a day after I emailed. Now I still may not agree with their position but it is good customer service. Oh and the email i got:

    Hi, I received the exact same reply from Lego when I wrote them about the $50 price difference for set 10187. ($119USD vs $169CAD).

    It’s a horrible excuse. For this pricing to be fair the dollar would have to be trading at 70 cents.
