Amazon Discounts LEGO Star Wars, Super Heroes

If you missed out on the BOGO 40% deal earlier this week, there are a couple of things you should know. First, even though the LEGO items have been removed from this page, the discounts still seems to apply. For example, 75019 AT-TE is currently listed at $66.31, 26% off of MSRP of $89.99. Having two of them in my cart adds up to $132.62. On the final page before checkout, the BOGO 40% promotion kicks in, applying a discount of -$26.52, bringing my total down to $106.10 before any tax is applied. It seems though that some of you were having trouble getting the BOGO discount to work. Keep in mind that the discount is 40% off only the item that is equal or lesser value, and only one discount will be applied per cart. Some of the sets where the discount still applies include 75019 AT-TE, 75003 A-wing Starfighter, 75040 General Grievous’ Wheel Bike, and 75022 Mandalorian Speeder. It seems some of the others sets are sold out from Amazon and offered by third party sellers, and thus not eligible for promotion. Not entirely sure when the promotion ends; it says “while supplies last” so don’t hesitate if you’re looking for a deal, especially on that AT-TE.

Secondly, Amazon has applied some pretty nice discounts across a range of sets, starting at 20% going all the way up to a whopping 37%:

And lastly, some Super Heroes sets are also discounted, ranging from 20% up to 26% off:

Amazon Discounts LEGO Super Heroes

Star Wars isn’t the only theme getting hit by the discount hammer as Amazon is also discounting many Super Heroes sets. The discounts may not be as great, ranging from 10-15% but there are a few sets worth mentioning outright.

LEGO Superman sets are brand new, and I’m assuming they’re on sale to help promote the movie. In any case, if you were waiting for a sale to pick them up, maybe now’s the time. The best deal is on the cheapest set. They have 76002 Superman: Metropolis Showdown discounted down a whopping 23%, down to $9.97 from $12.99 MSRP.

They also have the other two on sale: 76009 Superman: Black Zero Escape is down to $17.00 (15% discount) and 76003 Superman: Battle of Smallville is down to $42.97 (14% discount). Still looking for non-movie Supes? 6862 Superman Vs Power Armor Lex is also discounted 15% down to $17.00.

On the Marvel side, 6869 Quinjet Aerial Battle is discounted 24% down to $53.19 from $69.99 MSRP.

And finally, 6866 Wolverine Chopper Showdown. I’ve been keeping my eye on this one and this set is finally seeing a decent sale price of $16.14, a 19% discount off of $19.99 MSRP. You get Wolverine, Magneto, and Deadpool all in one set with a great dark red parts pack helicopter model.

Most everything else hovers around a 10% discount, so check out LEGO Super Heroes on Amazon for more deals.

[AUS] Exclusive Lex Luthor Figure With Batman 2 Pre-order

Exclusive Lex Luthor Minifigure

It looks like there may be hope for those that found the Lex Luthor figure included in 6862 Superman vs. Power Armor Lex a little bland. I mean, who shows up to battle Superman in a three piece suit? Ok, so they did scrap on occasion in more formal attire and sometimes even in ridiculous shirtless bare-knuckle boxing matches. However, don’t get too excited just yet (I mean about the figure, not the shirtless boxing) because this deal has only popped up on the Australian EB Games site so far and even if the same deal gets offered in other countries it still means pre-ordering the LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes game at full price. I love the LEGO games and if this offer hits Canada it will be the first time I buy one without waiting for the usual price drop, but I just wouldn’t want to risk missing out on this classic look. Fingers crossed!

6857 The Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape… Where Did That Come From?

Not seen on any lists of the upcoming LEGO Super Heroes DC line up that I’m aware of, forum member Dano Anonymous Tipster pointed out the abrubt appearence of this set on LEGO Shop@Home. At $40 US for 380 pieces and five oustanding figures I’d much rather pick this set up than the 6863 Batwing Battle Over Gotham City set. The site says it will be available December 15th and I for one see this as the only other must have besides the solitary Sumperman/Wonder Woman set 6862 Superman vs Power Armour Lex.

Harley Quinn for the win folks.

edit by onions: who the heck is Sumperman?

edit by buriedbybricks: he’s like Superman, but kryptonite has no affect on him?

2012 Set Lists for Super Heroes, Cars

Super Heroes Set List

Thanks to Australian toy website, Hobbyco, we now have a more complete picture of what 2012 will bring in regards to the other licensed themes. Please note that the prices you see in the screen caps above and below are in Australian dollars. Super Heroes is rounding out quite nicely with the Avengers’ Quinjet on the Marvel side, while DC’s offerings seem to be awash with Batman sets. There’s also a listing for the ‘Ultrabuild’ Hero Factory-type of Constraction sets that were shown at Comic Con. Cars doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon much to my delight. Assuming some of these are slated for January, they should start showing up sometime in December.
