You beat me to the post. My head almost exploded when I saw this. If only death stars were sold in store. I've included the link to the coupon below.

eBay store, contact me if you'd like to perform trades from my inventory. I'm looking for original genosian fighers, second version a-wing fighters and tie bombers. I may be interested in other sets so let me know what you have.

Thanks for the link. I will definitely make a trip tomorrow. I really hope they have something in stock worth buying.

But you posted the coupon. ;) Thanks! I knew I forgot something. Yea, it would be insane if they sold the Death Star at the TRU. I don't know what I could use...I have all the sets I really want. :S Still a killer deal though.

Maybe I'll go ahead and get the AT-AT, it's the only set I've been putting off.

Or, another X-wing. I've been wanting to pick up another one to do the other config on.

BINGO!!!!! I was waiting for this and knew TRU was going to pull the trigger eventually. Hopefully I can get a decent set before they all sell out. Im thinking another AT AT, X Wing, or Venator.

So, I thought I felt an earthquake, turns out it was just the sale email for this one dropping into my inbox. XD

I don't know if I'll venture out to TRU tomorrow or not. We'll see. Too bad they probably won't have 2011 sets yet.

Maybe a RAS if I can still find it...

If you're lucky, and I'm always lucky, you can actually find republic gunships in your store and get them for the bogo 50%. Other sets I'd recommend are the 6212 xwing and count dooku's piece of junk (I don't like it) since both are tru exclusives you will rarely ever see a discount on.

Want to know what's sad? It wouldn't surprise me at all if their prices were marked up a little more. We'll see tomorrow.

Do you think this deal would be worth it on the smaller sets considering Toys R Us' markup?

Not for battle packs which are already marked up 30% to 15 bucks :roll:

Maybe on the bigger sets which TRU marked up 8.5 %.

No, but the store closest to me has SW sets mysteriously leave the shelves before the sale starts. The only thing in stock will be battle packs and a few $25 sets so the shelves aren't totally empty. >8(

And then they'll magically be back in stock on Sunday, right? :facepalm:

Just got back from TRU. My local store (Chicago) has sets marked up big time. All of the $110 sets are at $130. It really sucks.

If my math is right, it's barely 11% savings.

$130 + $130 - $65 = $195 out of pocket
$110 + $110 = $220 suggested retail pricing
$220 SRP - $195 OOP = $25 "true" savings
$25 savings / $220 SRP = roughly 11%

I'm new to all this LEGO mania so I'm wondering if one of you old guard can tell me... is this the best it gets for these Star Wars sets?

I've been snatching up smaller Star Wars sets at Borders and B&N with their 33% - 50% coupons + 10% as a Borders Rewards. They seem to mark up all their stuff $5 - $15 but the steep discounts make it net out to 20% - 35% discount from SRP. But they don't have any of the big sets!

Should have known it was too good to be true, but I expect that type of price hike from TRU. I might consider stopping in at TRU, just to see what they have.

Just got back from SC TRU, and the prices were only the normal TRU markup (they didn't add any additional price increase for the BOGO). Also, they had the Emperor Palpatine's Shuttle marked as $59.99 on their shelves, so that was actually cheaper than the normal TRU markup (had to tell her at the register because it still rang up as $64.99).

Don't forget about those little 30005 Stormies in polybags too...they end up being $3/ea after the discount :-)
