I was in Smyths the other day and was amazed by some of the prices of sets. A few years ago we were getting pretty good deals overhere with sets at the Shop at home price or below but those days are over. The problem seems to be that our major suppliers buy through the UK and at the moment the pound is quite expensive.

A few examples:
75049 Snowspeeder:
Shop at Home: €39.99
Smyths: €44.99
Argos: €45.99 (currently €41.79

75052 Mos Eisley canteen:
Shop at Home: €79.99
Smyths: €84.99
Argos: €85.49

21108 Ghostbusters
Shop at Home: €49.99
Smyths: €57.99
Argos: €58.99

31026 Bike shop & Cafe
Shop at Home: €69.99
Smyths: €79.99
Argos: Not available
