There's rumors going that the USA exclusive LEGO Architecture Studio 21050 set could potentially be coming back in August 2014. It is currently listed as temporarily out of stock. The set was released last year in August 2013 but was sold out within months of release. Price was $149.99 USD back then, but it appears that LEGO has decided to raise the price to $159.99 USD now. If you can't afford the set, staff vynsane has created an LDD file with the pieces in it.
Thanks to Sethbrown555 for writing in.

Sadly same high price :(
^ While the price-per-piece may be above the much-vaunted "golden ratio", $0.10/piece only gets you so far and can be used as a relatively useful guideline. It's not, however, the be-all and end-all determiner of the value of a LEGO set. This topic has it pretty well covered.
In our world, however, it's interesting to note that the seemingly plain, readily-available pieces that are included are actually quite a good deal more expensive via Bricklink (at least at the original MSRP), as evidenced by the cost-analysis performed on the blog New Elementary.
Also, while searching for that blog post above, I found it listed on Toys R Us as well - and at original MSRP to boot. It is not available for order online, but does state "available in stores". Has anyone ever seen this at TRU?
