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

“Star Cars” Lightning McFalcon, or Millennium McQueen, or. . . something. . .

Check out this intriguing mash-up by Raphael Heusser that combines two of our favorite vehicles: Star Wars’ Millennium Falcon and Lightning McQueen of Cars. I suppose the most fitting tagline here would be, “To infinity, and beyond!”

Review: 8487 Flo’s V8 Cafe

8487 Flo's V8 Cafe

This set is probably the closest we’ll get to some sets based off the first movie. Luckily, locations in Radiator Springs haven’t changed much if at all between the two movies, and Flo’s V8 Cafe is no exception. I wish the same could be said between the movie setting and the set.

Cars 2 on Blu-ray/DVD Release Details

Cars 2 Five-disc Combo

Update: I added the Toys’R’Us retailer exclusive below.

Cars 2 will be released in less than a week on Tuesday November 1. And since its the norm lately to offer highly anticipated releases in multiple formats, I thought I’d make a post on the different options available to you.

8426 Escape At Sea for $15 and Free Shipping from Amazon

Just in case you don’t read the review for this set, is offering 8426 Escape At Sea for $15.00 with free standard shipping, meaning you don’t have to add any odds or ends to push your cart total to $25 for Free Super Saver Shipping. At this price, it brings the price per parts down to the golden ratio.

Also, Amazon is offering the same 25% discount with free standard shipping on a few other similarly priced sets, including 7915 Imperial V-wing Starfighter.

Review: 8426 Escape At Sea

8426 Escape At Sea

Priced at $19.99, you get 159 pieces for your hard earned Jackson, so it might be a tough pill to swallow for some. It’s got two large hull pieces that most likely contributed to the seemingly high price point. You do get three movie characters out of those pieces, though, Submarine Finn McMissile, Professor Z, and Tony Trihull, without many extras. In fact, the only extras you do get are two buoys.

Review: 8423 World Grand Prix Racing Rivalry

8423 World Grand Prix Racing Rivalry 1

At first I thought this was going to be just another ho hum set with very little redeeming qualities but it does have one saving grace that I can’t say a lot of other Cars sets have.
