Lego Star Wars 7964 Republic Frigate
Retail price in US 119.95. Singapore RP at S$299.90, after 20% discount at sales S$239.92. At an exchange rate of 1.25, the price in USA is at S$150. We pay S$90 more (after 20% discount), that's about 38% difference in price. Without the 20% sales, we pay an additional of S$149.90, around 50% more. I can certainly get a lot of lego with S$150!
Having paid less than USD 100 for this box including airmail from US, buyers can always source for cheap lego online. No doubt Lego Singapore is in business, but we hope they can review the lego prices here, we are having a 10-15% increament every year for the last 3 years. Lego is getting more expensive in Asia, but the prices in US are not increasing that much. The reason is we had a smaller market here.
The minifigures, clone commander Wolffe, Wolfpack clone trooper, Eeth Koth, Quinlan Vos and Yoda. The loose minifigures of Eeth Koth & Quinlan currently cost more than USD20 each on US ebay (exclude postage)
