LEGO Shop@Home Discounts Additional Sets, Toys’R’Us BOGOs Again

10% OFF $149 + FREE Shipping on $49 + Exclusive LEGO Set on $99

LEGO Shop@Home added a few more sets to their Brick Friday sale going on right now. I’ve listed the new items below with their sale price. All are great sets if you ask me, except for maybe the Ninjago set. Their Brick Friday promotion is still going on and they are combinable with the sale prices: spend $49 and get free shipping, spend $99 and get free shipping and the holiday set, spend $149 or more and get an additional 10% off.

In other sales news, Toys’R’Us is having yet another BOGO sale on all LEGO except Star Wars and Ninjago this week starting today Sunday November 27th through Saturday December 3rd. Deal is good in store and online. Buyer beware: some sets are marked up up to 20% so please double check your math for actual savings off of MSRP.

Clone Wars Christmas Special

The Clone Wars Christmas Hymn

This scene created by Ninja_Nin reminds me of a few Christmas parties I’ve been to and I don’t regularly hang out with bounty hunters. It’s also a great idea if you’re looking to make your own cards this holiday season, though I suspect not all songs would be so easily turned to the dark side.

Toys’R’Us BOGO 50% off on LEGO Star Wars, Harry Potter, Cars

ToysRUs.com is having a BOGO sale on all LEGO Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Cars sets that are in stock. Buyer beware: a lot of the sets have a slight markup over MSRP so your actual savings may be less than anticipated. Still, if you combine it with the $25 off purchases of $150 or more by using your MasterCard at checkout, you might be able to get some pretty nice savings. You’ll also get free shipping once your order reaches $49 or more. Deal is good online and as far as I can tell, is only good for Saturday November 26th. It is unknown at this time if the deal is also good in store. Not into Star Wars or Harry Potter or Cars LEGO sets? Fear not, for they will have a BOGO 50% off sale starting Sunday November 27 through December 3rd on all themes EXCEPT Star Wars, Ninjago, and video games.

Review: 7965 Millennium Falcon

7965 Millennium Falcon Review

Why is it so hard to successfully make one of the most iconic ships from this franchise? Is it merely because it’s so iconic? All I know is after as many times as they’ve redesigned this I would expect them to at least make something worth settling for.

[CAN] TRU 1/2 Price Event!

Atlantis is at the end of it’s run and Toys’R’Us Canada is clearing out the largest set of the theme at half off. As a big fan of Atlantis I really enjoyed the 8078 Portal Of Atlantis set I think it’s a no brainer at $64.97. You can also score either the 8083 Rebel Trooper or 8084 Snowtrooper Battle Packs at $7.47.

At the time of this post the three sets are out of stock online, but I have little doubt you’d have trouble finding them in store if the pile I saw at my local TRU is any indication. There’s also a 25% off deal on all LEGO lights, 20% off all Pirates Of The Caribbean sets and a FREE LEGO Ninjago 3D Battle Arena with spinner with any $50 Ninjago purchase.
