I was just browing Amazon.com’s clearance section, and they have a couple of LEGO Star Wars items for sale, including LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector’s 10179 Millennium Falcon for $100 off. Hit the banner and do a search for “LEGO Star Wars” to see all their items.

eToys is like the killer in horror movies. You don’t know where he’s been, what he’s been up to, and why he just won’t die. Well apparently, Toys’R'Us decided to acquire eToys. This is an interesting move on TRU’s part. Maybe it’s just me, but I never got a strong impression that eToys was that strong of a brand. They were absorbed by KB*Toys during their last struggling days of online toy selling. I haven’t read the article completely but I’m guessing KB*Toys is struggling enough to sell off the brand. Thanks to Chat room member Tohst for sharing.
Team KAM at Fineclonier.com is hosting a contest of epic proportions. If you’ve got some time, a great idea, and the skills to craft a custom Clone Wars themed minifig good enough to win, this contest is for you. They are offering huge prize packages for 1st through 4th place.
Just thought I would drop a post that we’re already at 400 registered members… and as far as I can tell, no spam among them!
We’re continuing to help new folks who have joined up and need to troubleshoot their memberships, so not all those 400 are posting quite yet, but still, I’d say this is a remarkable number to hit after launching the new site just 2 days ago!
Q: Why can’t I log in?
A: If you’re using your account information from the old forum, there’s your first problem. This is a brand new forum, and thus all members require a new registration.
Q: Okay guys, I knew that. I registered on the new forum. I still can’t log in.
A: Did you get the Activation Email? If not, check your spam folder. Many people have found the admin email there.
Q: Hmm. Nope, no emails anywhere. What do I do now?
A: Email email@example.com and we’ll try to help you. Like the two dozen forum registrations I just activated because I recognized the usernames from the old forum and saw they were inactive.
We understand the first week or so is going to be hectic around here, so we’re going to be doing our best to get you in, but we can only hold your hand for so long And your hands are chapped from building so much Lego, and ew you have cooties, too!
Thanks to Firespray on the forum for letting us know that 4 new magnet sets are now available in the US (after an earlier release in Europe.)
It’s worth noting that all three of the figures in this pack come in expensive sets in the SW line, so at $15 this magnet pack is a steal!
See the other new offerings below, including sweet Slave Leia (sadly fleshy, not beautiful yellow) and Darth Maul magnets:

Please accept my apology for the previous post about the TRU 25% off sale. There were some crossed wires in the tip line; apparently the sale was only in Canada, as posted below by Jeremy.
To anyone who rushed out and came home empty handed and with tears in your eyes (and there are several already who contacted me,) I profusely apologize.
Pepa Quin has just shared, however, that Power Miners are 25% off, so maybe that could be some consolation to you.
Another great deal hit my inbox today, and I thought I’d share it! All you Canadian FBTB’ers can thank forum member Daz Hoo for pointing this out:
From Friday, February 6th, through Friday, February 13th, get 25% off any Star Wars, Power Miners, City or Pirates set when you buy two or more. Also, if you order online for more than $49.99 (before taxes), you get free shipping!
Check out this flyer for more info. I am sorry also that this got to the front-page somewhat late. I’ll be more dilligent in the future.
All you UK LEGO and Star Wars nuts out there, check this out:
Argos stores are having 25% off star wars toys right now… including Star Wars LEGO. There was no information how long this will last, so if you want to grab a good deal or two, you better be quick. Included in the sale are the 2009 assortment, including Battle Packs!
EDIT: The deal is valid through Feb 23rd.
Thanks to bigospedros in the forums for pointing this out!
