Amazon Death Star 10188 359.99 free ship, no tax for most

http://www.amazon.com/LEGO-Star-Wars-Death-10188/dp/B002EEP3NO/ref=sr_1_1?tag=fbtb-20&ie=UTF8&qid=1347288723&sr=8-1&keywords=lego+10188

Pretty good deal as tax or shipping usually kills a sale on this one. I know Amazon has more physical locations causing tax to be charged to more locations but we don't have that problem yet in Georgia. If it makes you feel any better, I pay tax on Lego online orders with two store locations nearby.
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.

Same deal on the Super Star Destroyer at Amazon.

Awesome deal. Anyone get it at this price? Thinking about it. If I remember correctly the last time Amazon had it at this price it only lasted a short time.

Probably in response to the mark down that toysrus.com began yesterday. Toysrus.com deal was mentioned in the link below. Wonder if anyone else online will drop prices.

This is a very tempting offer...I interned at Amazon this past summer so get an additional 10% off, so comes out to about $324 for me. I'm just wondering if they would ever have a cheaper price i.e. black friday, or if legoshop would ever put it on a big sale.

i can't remember the death star ever going on sale. if it did, it was more than 1.5 years ago.

the ssd did go down 20% during may the 4th this year though

The Death Star is certainly worth getting on sale if you can afford it. I have no regrets getting it at full price.

Yeah I'd be getting it right now if I didn't have it yet... word is they just stopped production on them. So whatever stock is left is all they've got. Also helps explain the out of stock they had at S@H A short time ago, too. It's also been basically 4 years to the month since it was released, a good time to end the set I'd say.
May the mass times acceleration be with you!

People were mentioning rumors production had ended in 2011, too.

Does LEGO regularly announce when sets go out of production? The only time I heard of them making announcement was the 10179 Falcon.

For all we know, they could be giving the Death Star another year....supposedly it's still selling well so from a financial perspective, why would you end it?
