Even More Amazon Deals

Postby Staff » Wed Jun 27, 2012 8:52 am





Amazon has a few sets on discount worth noting. Despite these reductions, I get the feeling everyone's just waiting on the fall stuff to arrive. Still, now would be a good time to fill in those holes in your collection before they get discontinued and skyrocket in price in the aftermarket. Besides everyone needs more Ewoks:



And don't forget, you can pre-order the LEGO Batman: Visual Dictionary from DK Publishing for the low, low price of $13.75. Authored by Daniel Lipkowitz, the book features the previously announced Electro Suit Batman exclusive minifig. The publication date is set for September 17, 2012. Pre-order it today:

Be careful this is Amazon trickery going on (sort of) - the discounts aren't quite as good as they look - check the prices on lego.com versus the "list price" on Amazon, and you see the discounts on Ewok Attack 7956 (MSRP$24.99) and Geonosian Starfighter 7959 (MSRP$29.99) are based on a higher list price than the MSRP. The Batwing Battle Over Gotham City 6863 price does match Lego.com. From Amazon you will usually save on tax and shipping if you buy enough, so there are good discounts to be had, but just be aware that the "List Price" is not the MSRP.

(I've had this issue with product other than Lego from Amazon, particularly when the product goes out of stock from Amazon and is listed through a linked seller - the 'list price' can jump by 50% or more and subsequent discounts are still a rip-off compared to the real MSRP...aftermarket is a whole other issue)

I agree. Those discounts aren't that great...

I thought the same thing to myself: those percentage off amounts just didn't seem right. This post really should be corrected like this...

7956 Ewok Attack down 6.5% to $23.36 ($1.64 off of $24.99 MSRP, Amazon shows $29.99 as reg. price)
7959 Geonosian Starfighter down 5.9% to $28.23 ($1.76 off of $29.99 MSRP, Amazon shows $34.99 as reg. price)
6863 Batwing Battle Over Gotham City down 17% to $28.99 (correct as shown, Amazon shows correct MSRP of $35.99)

The entry the way it is currently written is really misleading. Less than $2 off of a set is not a deal, even with no tax or shipping.

A reminder to my fellow Texans: Amazon starts charging state sales tax like...yesterday.
Hail Space!
