Amazon has 10212 Imperial Shuttle on sale with a slight discount, only 10%, down to $233.59. But considering it’s rare for this set to see any kind of markdown, and you get free shipping, and no tax to most states, it might be one of the better deals to be had.
LEGO Shop @ Home has some new deals for the month of August.

In addition, they’ve added a bunch of stuff to the Sales & Deals section, but don’t get too excited. Most of it is hovering around 10-30%, and the items that have been in there for a while are still about the same price. Notable exceptions are the Toy Story and Female Minifigure magnet sets for $3.48 each. I am pretty sure are from the last wave of magnets before they started getting glued. About $1 a figure is nothing to sneeze at.
And finally, spend $35 US/ £25 UK or more and get a free Alien Conquest Jetpack polybag.
TRU online and in store is having a BOGO 50% off sale for the next 4 days, June 15 through June 18. Free shipping applies to orders $100 or more. Also, there’s an in-store offer of a free LEGO Creator 30022 MINI Lighthouse set with your LEGO purchase of $30 or more.
The ad, shown above, has an asterisk next to the text so some restrictions may apply, but it is not detailed on the online version of the ad. So far, the BOGO discount applies to LEGO Star Wars items as well. Just be aware of the TRU’s markup over MSRP as that will cut into any potential savings. Still, aside from the Death Star Set, the rest of the big guns are showing up as in stock such as 10215 Obi-wan’s Jedi Starfighter, 10198 Tantive IV, and 10212 Imperial Shuttle.

I’m extremely happy to report the final donation numbers to the FBTB Charity Drive. In total, we’ve received 1,195 donations. Like last year, FBTB will cover the fees that Paypal ding’s each donation, so I’ll be making a final contribution of $2,390 to Child’s Play.
Now, before I announce the raffle winners, I just want thank everyone again who donated $2, $10, $100, or whatever amount you donated. Every dollar counts and will go a long way to help children in need. Being a new(ish) father myself, my perspective on life has changed a lot. I can’t imagine what parents must be going through when their child is sick and hospitalized. Gift shopping is probably the last thing on their minds, and this is where Child’s Play steps up to the plate, by providing gifts to those sick kids. The holidays is all about giving, and your collective generosity means a lot. Thank you.
So, with all that being said, let’s reveal the winners!
