Amazon Discounts 76017 Captain America vs. Hydra by 22%

76017 Captain America vs. Hydra

Either I missed this in my last sales post or the sale price didn’t go into effect until after, but Amazon is discounting 76017 Captain America vs. Hydra by 22%. Regular price is $19.99 but it is now at $15.54. Free Super Saver Shipping starts at $35 or free 2-day with no minimum if you’re a Prime member. 76017 Captain America vs. Hydra comes with Captain America, Red Skull, and a Hydra Henchman.

Amazon Discounts Super Heroes, TMNT Sets

76004 Spider-Cycle Chase

Amazon is discounting a few Super Heroes sets at 20% or better. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sets are also seeing a modest discount. And speaking of TMNT, sets based on the stupid movie are also available.

And finally, sets based on the movie. And boy does that movie look stupid. And you know it’s bad when the fifth Step Up movie is rated higher on Rotten Tomatoes than the TMNT movie. The toys look slightly less stupid but I will admit that the van set looks pretty good and will probably roll better than the Shellraiser. I’ve provided links to both Amazon and LEGO Shop@Home for these sets.

Price Wars! Amazon vs. Walmart On Select LEGO Star Wars Sets

75021 Republic Gunship

Amazon and Walmart are having a bit of a price war, matching each other’s discount on a couple of sets. I’m not sure who fired the first volley but we are all winners. Discounts are applied on some of the older sets that will be retiring soon if they haven’t been already. This is just a sample list of some of the larger sets. Some battle packs may also be discounted down to $10 or less.

Amazon’s BOGO 40% Off Sale Select Brands, Includes LEGO

79008 Pirate Ship Ambush

Toys’R’Us isn’t the only place in town having a BOGO 40% off sale select LEGO themes. Seems like Amazon wants a piece of the action is offering up their own BOGO 40% off sale. Selection seems to be limited to some Super Heroes, Star Wars, and some Lord of the Rings/Hobbit sets.

Just like the last time this sale came up, the prices are good on the already discounted price. The best deal is once again 79008 Pirate Ship Ambush. It is currently marked down 19% to $81.22. If you purchase two of them, your total discount is -$32.49 dropping the price down to $129.95, making each set cost just under $65 before any tax.

One other item of note is 6860 The Batcave. Though only showing a modest 4% discount, it has been discontinued and is gone from LEGO Shop@Home’s site so if you’ve procrastinated on this one, now would be a good time to pick up a copy or two. 6860 Batcave comes with Bane, Poison Ivy, Robin, Batman, and Bruce Wayne.

Update: Seems I was somehow dialed into the UK version of the Shop@Home site. 6860 The Batcave is still available from the US Shop@Home site. My apologies for the confusion.

Discount will be reflected on the final page of the ordering process.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles LEGO Variant Comic Cover


Loved the Marvel LEGO variant covers and wish you could get more then just the mighty Marvel characters in LEGO comic form, well you’re in luck. No, you won’t be getting any awesome DC covers… yet, but you can get your hands on this variant cover for TMNT New Animated Adventures #12 over at Midtown Comics for a really nice price. You could also check your local shop to see if they got this subscription cover that slipped past me a couple weeks ago. Still, it’s new comic book day and this was certainly new to me! There’s a LEGO TMNT comic inside, but if you don’t read this particular comic, it’s still a new cover to add to your collection.

Today is June 17th which is release day for The LEGO Movie on disc format. It’s been available digitally for a while now, but us LEGO nerds are only in it for the minifigs, am I right? Despite the self-imposed pre-order embargo by Amazon, they are now shipping and selling The Everything Is Awesome edition. If you haven’t pre-ordered, the current asking price for is $34.99. This should be the same price at Walmart but at the time of this writing, their site wasn’t functioning preventing me from verifying the priceEdit: Looks like Walmart is selling for $34.96, and the movie is available for Pick-Up-Today at participating locations -Nick. also has the movie in stock along with a deal: buy The LEGO Movie and a LEGO videogame or toy and get $10 off.
