To my knowledge, they don't happen too often and when they do they usually exclude stuff like Star Wars. You then have to deal with TrU's markups and they're just such a lousy store anyways that I'd just avoid them. Plus, I don't believe they ever stock UCS sets.
Should I wait for black Fridays?
Usually LEGO only discounts one set for Black Friday, and it's mostly the stores that have a smaller selection of LEGOs that have the really great discounts (Barnes and Noble, for example, had a 50% off all construction toys last year)
Does shop online for Lego ever have sales?
Yes. There's a "Sales and Deals"
tab on their shop page.
Or does amazon provide the best overall deals year round?
I'm not the expert on this one, but to my recollection discounts don't happen often, but when they do they're great. I think it's more often the System stuff, though, not UCS.
Mainly, I'm looking for the Imperial shuttle (best price I saw was $199) and the death star 2008 version (best price 354.99), but want to kno if there are better prices for these ones.
is generally the go-to place for buying LEGOs online (especially sets that are out of circulation). Looking at the individual entries for the sets
, though, those do seem to be the best prices right now.
