Amazon’s Massive Cyber Monday Sale On LEGO Star Wars

75099 Rey's Speeder

In addition to the discounted Ferris Wheel set I posted earlier, Amazon is applying a massive discount on just about every LEGO Star Wars set currently available. Not sure if it’s officially part of a Cyber Monday promotion but the sheer number and the size of the discounts makes me think it is. You can get a savings anywhere from 15% and up to 37%. Here’s the list of sets followed by the discount percentage:

Upcoming LEGO Batman Movie Sets

This sort of slipped through the cracks while life got in the way for a couple of this month, but now that we’re focusing on getting our reviews for The LEGO Batman Movie and DC Friends sets, we’re running across a whole mess of sets that we have been announced or can now be found in the instruction books for the current preview wave of sets.

The current lineup of sets includes 70901 Mr. Freeze Ice Attack, 70905 The Batmobile, 70906 The Joker Notorious Lowrider, and 70909 Batcave Break-In… obviously there are a few numbers between each of those. We know one of them will probably be taken up by the Collectible Minifigure line, and Arkham Asylum has already been revealed (as a Toys ‘R Us exclusive). Turns out several other sets have been revealed… hop below the fold to check them out!

Thanks to Brickset and BrickToyNews for descriptions of some of the sets!

Amazon Discounts 10247 Ferris Wheel By 20%

10247_box3_na

This is one of my favorite creator sets. 10247 Ferris Wheel. It is normally $199.99 but can be had for $159.99 right now from Amazon. I am 99% sure it’s on LEGO short list of sets that normally never go on sale so seeing it pop up at this price is suprising. I like it so much so that I really regret not getting the Carousel set from a few years back.

The size and scope are impressive and the overall construction of the set is just amazing. It has a good assortment of minifigs and creates a nice little slice of fairground life. If you do pull the trigger and buy the set, I highly suggest getting the 8883 Power Functions M-Motor and 88000 Power Functions AAA Battery Box and motorize the thing. It’s a bit noisy but it’s nice to see it in motion without having to manually crank the wheel. It’s awesome and you won’t regret getting it. Don’t be like me and the carousel and regret not getting it years down the line when it’s discontinued. And it’s on sale!

Review: 41230 Batgirl Batjet Chase

41230-batgirl-batjet-chase-1

Way back when a license was announced for LEGO to produce sets based on DC Super Hero Girls, it couldn’t have come at a better time. My daughter falls into the target age group and she, thankfully, enjoys LEGO as much as I do. She recently picked up a comic book based on the DC Super Hero Girls and really enjoyed reading it. So building these sets was a perfect storm of her interests coming together. LEGO sent over a sample of the three sets that are available early ahead of the usual January cycle and I put her to task to build all of them. She would build, and I would supervise and take notes for this review. She gravitated toward 41230 Batgirl Batjet Chase for her first build and was swooshing it around by the end of the night. It was a hit.

Adventure Time Marceline Fun Pack Recalled

The Toys’R’Us timed-exclusive LEGO Dimensions Adventure Time Marceline Fun Pack is being recalled. A stop sale has been issued for the vampire queen. The NFC chip is defective in that when scanned in, nothing appears on the screen. Since there are now a limited number of defective units out in the wild, I can’t imagine this being of any interest to speculators or collectors. As a defective unit, it is essentially useless. WBIE will hopefully fix the issue and start shipping corrected Fun Packs in the near future.

The Marceline Fun Pack is a limited-time Toys’R’Us exclusive, meaning that other retailers will eventually be able to sell the pack. Do not fall to the dark side. Do not fall for aftermarket prices. A little patience and it will be much easier to get.

Dimensions Packs On Sale At Amazon

I didn’t post any Black Friday deals because, let’s be honest, it’s a freaking mess. How many times have you heard the phrase “Black Friday starts today!” and it’s like in the middle of August? Or, “Cyberweek starts last week!” I long for the days when stores would stay closed on Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday actually started on Monday. Anyways, we’ll post the deals as they come in to the best of our abilities because LEGO is expensive and every discount helps.

Right now, Amazon has a really nice discount on a number of Fun, Level, and Team packs for LEGO Dimensions. Discounts range from 30-50% off. They are:
