30070 Alien Free With LEGO Toy Story 3 Purchase

If you haven’t already bought 30070 Alien from Toys’R’Us stores for $3.99, you can score one for free by purchasing a LEGO Toy Story 3 set now through 8/29. Offer is also good online as well. The deal specifies LEGO Toy Story 3 sets, but it seems all LEGO Toy Story sets qualify, at least online. Browse Toys’R’Us LEGO Toy Storyicon sets.

Series 2 Minifigures Up For Preorder at EE

Were you one of the unlucky unable to find any of the series 1 Minifigures? Well, depending on your stance on pricing, hassle, gas, and stress free acquisitions, EntertainmentEarth is offering preorders for series 2. A full case of 60 will run you $164.99, while a 10-pack costs $29.99. Add on tax (if applicable) and shipping, you’ll have to decide whether or not their markup over MSRP ($1.99 per minifigure) is worth not having to drive everywhere looking for them trying to get a complete set hunched over the display box with iPhone in hand scanning each barcode only to realize someone already bought all the Spartan Warriors and left a boat load of Traffic Cops.

Hit the banner below and do a search for “lego minifigures series 2″:

Shop EntertainmentEarth.com!

For pictures of series 2 minifigures, check out the set on FBTB’s flickr account.

There is a little over 3 weeks left to submit your entry to the MOC Madness 2010 Building Tournament, still plenty of time to build something if you haven’t started yet. Lots of great entries so far; will yours best them all? All qualified entries enter group pool round where the top 32 (64 if more than 100 entries) advance to single elimination brackets. Deadline for submissions is 11:59pm Pacific Time. Full rules and details here. Good luck!

Barnes & Noble is having a 40% off promotion again. This time use the coupon code A7B9W7U at checkout for 40% off MSRP one item. Keep in mind it only works for LEGO sets labeled under “Toys and Games,” which for whatever reason does not include everything. Spend $25 or more and get free shipping as well.
