Just found out that the long awaited lego 2010 sets will be sold on Jan 3, 2010, through the ToysRUS store in TST here in Hong Kong, these new sets have been available in US and other countries for awhile, and many local Lego players are anxious to get them, I personally would be happy to pay a little more to be the first few locally to get the Starwar sets, but it seems that no local lego shops in Hong Kong are importing and selling them yet, not sure if they are under pressure from someone and prohibited from doing so before the "official launch".

This kind of first-day selling offers many promotional goodies, for example, the first 100 customers who will purchase more than HKD 800 will get a gift pack worth HKD 400, and there will be raffles too, but there are also dark sides in such activities - aside from spending time to fall in lines, I have heard about cases of unfriendly competition for items on shelf, although I have not seen that in person, but I did experience chaos in such kind of events before. I am not sure if the HKD 400 gift pack is all worth that effort, my only concern is that, would some of the hot items being sold out and swept by lego shops/vendors before the real users come in?

The starwar sets will be key targets for many, I read that 8083, 8084, 8085, 8086, 8087, 8088, 8091 and 8092 will be available, all of them are attractive and I may get each one of them, hope that there will still be inventories left that day when I get there.

By the way, the location of ToysRUS TST can be found here: http://www.toysrus.com.hk/inside/location.htm, perhaps to avoid affecting the Christmas sales of old Lego Stock, there is no information available in their web site yet.
