Amazon has discounted the LEGO Lord of the Rings set 9473 The Mines of Moria down 21% to $63.00 from MSRP of $79.99.
Thanks to kibosh for the heads up.
Toys “R” Us has The Hobbit LEGO board game available to pre-order for $34.99. I’ll be adding this one to my game collection and look forward to picking it up when it’s released on September 24th.

_Tiler has taken the latest incarnation of the Batmobile and MINIfied it. My favorite part of the photo of is the reflection off of the cheese slopes used for the windows. It’s a great effect to give it that glass look.
He’s also made some camo versions, as well as a MINI The Bat:

I love me some zombies. So please pardon the interruption with non-licensed set news, but if you wanted to get some zombies for your monster fighters to… uh, fight, then 9465 The Zombies ought to do it. It is a Target exclusive but you can buy it from Shop@Home right now. It will cost you $39.99 for three zombies, a zombie fighter, Mjolnir, a hammer truck and a pair of sarcophagi.
Hammers: the preferred weapon of Zombie fighters everywhere.
Got VIP points burning a hole in your pocket? You can blow them all on the summer Star Wars sets that have just gone up for sale at LEGO Shop@Home. 9525 Pre Vizsla’s Mandalorian Fighter and 9526 Palpatine’s Arrest are account exclusives; I believe 9525 goes to Walmart and 9526 goes to Toys’R'Us.
LEGO Shop@Home finally has 6873 Spider-Man’s Doc Ock Ambush for sale on their site for $29.99. Pretty good for a 295-piece licensed set if you ask me. Walmart’s site still shows out of stock on this set, so if you’re itching to buy and don’t have a physical Walmart or LEGO Brand Retail store near you, now’s your chance. Throw in a Lord of the Rings set and get a free LEGO LOTR poster with your purchase.
Heads up: as of midnight tonight you have exactly two weeks left to enter our current contest. That’s still plenty of time to come up with a 30 second clip so if this is your first attempt at such a challenge there’s no need to worry. The prizes provided by Lego should be enough incentive to get your creative juices flowing. You do need the free LEGO Super Heroes Movie Maker app and an iOS device to run it of course, but the rules are pretty straight forward (you can read those right here). Good luck everyone, I’m looking forward to seeming your videos!
Right now, Amazon has 7965 Millennium Falcon marked down 25%, down to $104.99. With no tax to most states and free shipping, and considering this was part of last year’s assortment, this will probably be one of the best deals you’ll see on this set as Target clearance discounts are getting harder and harder to come by. Think of all the gas you’ll save by not having to drive all over town. Also, this appears to be in response to a Toys’R'Us sale price on the same set.
Amazon also has 7961 Darth Maul’s Sith Infiltrator down 30% to $48.96, 9492 TIE Fighter down 20% to $44.31, 7930 Bounty Hunter Assault Gunship down almost 40% to $30.98 trumping Target’s price from the other day.
I guess I should say “teasers” even though these two are identical save the differing voice overs provided by Kevin Costner’s Jonathan Kent and Russell Crowe’s Jor-El. Not much going on in the teaser really, but the film is still a long way off and if this is the tone of the final product I’ll happily ignore the goofy new unitard to check it out.
If we only get one Man Of Steel set based on what I’ve seen so far, I hope it’s bearded emo-Clark and Krypto on their super crab boat.
