Argos in the UK have reduced several Lego sets, although it does seem a little random which ones have their prices reduced. The pick of the bunch are the newer Pirates Of The Caribbean sets, including the above pictured Whitecap Bay set which is reduced by 39%. Check out the full list of reduced sets here.
Sadly, no Star Wars sets feature in this mini sale. Local stock may vary.
Walter Boy on Flickr has been posting a series of vignettes based on Disney’s Prates of the Caribbean ride and movies. One of my favorites is this gem from the ride’s expansion/revision that added Jack Sparrow to the mix in 2006:
I also love this other scene from the ride:

In the latest PotC movie, there apparently was an escape from London. I wouldn’t know, because I couldn’t bring myself to go see the movie. I know, it sounds strange that the guy who’s reviewing all of the Pirates of the Caribbean sets hasn’t seen the movie (I didn’t see the third one either), but you really only need to read my review on 4183 – The Mill, to find out why. I really did love the first movie, and that spirit is something that could have been captured in the sets. LEGO Jack Sparrow? It seems like a no-brainer. Who wouldn’t want that?
The Mill is a middle of price set for the Pirates of the Caribbean line of sets. For those of you wondering about the timing of this review, since the movie isn’t in all theaters any more, remember that some places still stock Prince of Persia stuff. The DVD will come out eventually, and these things are going to appear. The Black Pearl is on the horizon as well, waiting to disappoint us! So, arrrrrrrrr.
Thanks to Exoneit.de, a German online toy store, we can finally have a good look at the upcoming 4184 Black Pearl set sans offical watermarks (though they added their own)! Choice of minifigs is a bit odd. I guess they’re not planning on doing a Flying Dutchman. If they do, maybe it’ll have some of the Black Pearl Crew included.

Were you one of the unlucky few that got stuck with the non-chromed gold bars and coins from your Pirates of the Caribbean sets? Did you call up customer service to request replacement gold elements? Lately there have been a string of customers who got the wrong coins and no gold bars as their replacment parts. I’m happy to report some good news. You can call Shop@Home Customer Service (800-835-4386) and re-request the corrected parts. You should verify that you are getting prepack 4631481, and not element 70501.
Also, the POTC sets coming out of the factory will contain the new elements in the box.
Target stores currently have a buy one get one free offer for Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Ninjago sets. People over in the forums are reporting that this promotion varies by store, so you may end up with a buy two get one free or a BOGO 30% off in your area. The online deal is BOGO 50%.
Online prices for the most part match MSRP, so 30-50% off is a good way to snag the new Harry Potter summer sets at a discount. You could even buy two Knight Buses and get a bunch of sweet purple elements.
