7958 Star Wars Advent Calendar On Sale Now at Amazon

Postby Staff » Thu Aug 11, 2011 11:46 pm





Update 2: It's back in stock as of 8/12 6:39pm PST.

Update: The set sold out pretty quickly from Amazon. It still has yet to show up on Shop@Home though. We'll keep you posted when it does.

Amazon.com is now selling the 7958 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar for $39.99. It qualifies for Free Super Saver Shipping. If history is any indication, the specialty Advent Calendar sets (read non-City) tend to sell out quickly. I would be surprised if this was still available by the time December rolls around. This is one item I would suggest not waiting for a price deal on. Free shipping and no tax to most states will probably be the best deal you'll get.

But Toywiz has it for only $144.99, + $13.95 shipping. Nothing like paying 4x MSRP for a set, right?

Leave some for the rest of us, you feckless speculators!

Did anyone get a successful order in? Or was this a mistake?

Don't forget, this isn't time to start worrying since this set hasn't been officially released yet. Also, it's Star Wars, so this was probably produced in higher numbers than the other (Pirates, Castle) Advent Calendars.

I thought MSRP was supposed to be in the $30-35 USD range? If the MSRP is going to be $39.99, then the SDCC Exclusive at $50 was a bargain!

the specialty themed advent calendars were always a little more expensive, like the castle one from a few years ago. that too was 40 buckaroos.

The city calendar this year is $35 USD, $40 CAD (worth more than a USD, so what's up LEGO???), you can expect the Star Wars one to be coming in $40 USD and I think it's $50 CAD. Right? THe exlusive ones always had a big premium on them.

Now it only seems to be in stock through a third party seller, and is priced at $54.99 + $4.38 shipping. Not even remotely worth that to me. Wonder if I'll ever see it on store shelves?

You'll most likely be able to find it on Lego's site in the near future and in their brick & mortar stores. $60 for a non-exclusive version is a bit much...

Mine should be here shortly. Now I must decide whether to open it when it gets here and go crazy or put it away and wait like a good boy. Hmm, whatever shall I do?

I got mine ordered. My kids would never let me hear the end of it, if I missed this one.

I can confirm these on the shelf of a TRU in Michigan as well. Perfect timing, too. Just got a 20% off coupon in my e-mail last night!
