Mini attack shuttle

Yep, Toys R Us has another promotion. Today only (April 24th), they have all Star Wars and Harry Potter sets for BOGO 50% off.

A lot of the larger sets are out of stock online already, but you can get a free 30050 MINI Attack Shuttle (normally $3.99) to stuff in an Easter basket when you buy $40 worth of LEGO Star Wars sets.

You can find the coupon HERE or enter the code #944864 at the checkout for online orders.

Right on the heels of the Pirates of the Caribbean sets, Toys R Us online has listed some of the new Alien Conquest, Kingdoms, City (Marina and Space Port), and Atlantis sets. They all qualify for the current BOGO 50% Off promotion as well. Of course, if you’d rather give your business to one of our affiliates (we’d appreciate it!), give it a couple of days for these to appear on LEGO S@H and elsewhere.

Thanks DarthMC and Classicsmiley for the reports.

Don’t Underestimate the Power of the Dark Side

Apology Accepted

There’s a new character roaming around Legoland California. Protip: don’t insult his religion.

Target BOGO 50%, Container Heist 50% Off

Spend $50, Get Free Shipping on Select Items at

Kind of a late notice considering it’s Thursday and the sale started on Sunday, but I got an email today saying that brick’n’mortar stores as well is having a LEGO BOGO 50% sale. Discount applies to all LEGO Creator, LEGO Games, and Ninjago sets but excludes the CCP Spinner packs. Some sets qualify for free shipping

Of course, the only thing better than a BOGO 50% off is just 50% off. Target also lists LEGO Space Police III 5982 Smash’n’Grab for the low, low price of $9.98, that’s 50% off MSRP. They also have LEGO Atlantis 8059 Seabed Scavenger for half off, $7.48.

Pirates of the Caribbean Now Available At LEGO Shop@Home

LEGO Brand Retail

Got an itch for some POTC? Got VIP points burning a hole in your virtual wallet? LEGO Shop@Home has almost the entire LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean line on sale on their site. I say almost because 4184 Black Pearl is still a no show. But, the good news is that unlike TRU online, they are selling Queen Anne’s Revenge for $119.99. Beware, but they are selling 4191 The Captain’s Cabin as 4191 Zombie Pirates. So pick your poison: Toys’R’Us, which we are not an affiliate of anymore since they kicked us (and other AFOL sites) out of their program, or LEGO Shop@Home. And if my subtle hint wasn’t enough to convince you, then you could at least be earning VIP points with S@H. Quick links below:
