Several Star Wars sets on Sale on Amazon.com

75004

No idea who the price war is with this time, but it looks like there are a whole bunch of sets going on sale on Amazon, including some sets that we rated as “good when on sale,” like the AT-TE (26% off) and some that we rated as good regardless, and even better when on sale, like the Republic Gunship (19% off).

Thus far, I’ve run across these sales that are significant. Several others are seeing lesser discounts as well… sadly none of the 2014 stuff yet, but we’ll keep an eye out. These usually come in waves.

Amazon Discounts LEGO Star Wars

Methinks Amazon is trying to make some room for the summer wave of sets by discounting a bunch of older sets. Rather than make 1 post for each set I’ll just a list a bunch of them here. Nearly everything is on sale 20% off or more. I’m not sure if Walmart’s or Target’s prices are comparable or if either of them discounted their own stock to trigger Amazon’s discounts, but no matter the reason, now would be a great time to fill the holes in your collection on the cheap.

Amazon’s 20% or More off Sale on LEGO Star Wars

Amazon’s running some kind of wacky sale. I hesitated reporting on this sale because a) it’s only 20% and b) I usually find out about it only for it to revert to a higher price before I hit the publish button. Some of these deals seem to be sticking around though.

Amazon Discounts 75004 Z-95 Headhunter 27%

Amazon keeps the discount ball rolling, determined to make your wallets hurt. Forum member DarthBuilder writes in to let us know that 75004 Z-95 Headhunter is discounted 27% off, down to a startling low $35.80

He also tells us that 9515 The Malevolence is discounted 20%, and he’s right! It’s now at $95.96, saving you just over $24 off of MSRP.

Amazon Discounts 75004 Z-95 Headhunter by 22%

Amazon was selling 75004 Z-95 Headhunter at $42.97 for awhile, matching Walmart’s selling price but this morning they dropped the price further. It’s discounted 22% from MSRP of $49.99, now for sale at $38.80.

Thanks to ninnymuggins for the tip.

New Star Wars In Stock at LEGO Shop@Home

I was more or less offline the past few days enjoying the holidays with the family, so I don’t know exactly when this happened but LEGO Shop@Home now has almost the entire January 2013 assortment online for LEGO Star Wars; no sign yet of the Planet Series 3 sets. Looking at the list, only one set hits above $50 and that’s 75005 Rancor Pit. Everything else is $49.99 or less. Dare I say that this wave seems affordable? Of course, that’s not taking into account the price/piece ratio, but that’s a whole other argument.

Now I know why 75013 Umbaran MHC (Mobile Heavy Cannon) never showed up at Amazon: it’s listed as “Hard to Find” which means it’ll either be a Walmart or Target exclusive set since 75014 Battle of Hoth is exclusive to Toys’R'Us. My money’s on Target for this one.

On to the list!

Amazon Presells 75004 Z-95 Headhunter

Amazon has finally posted a listing for 75004 Z-95 Headhunter. Asking price is $49.99 and will be released on December 31 just like all the other 2013 sets. Still no sign of the MHC yet, which I’m dying to get my hands on.

Also, if you haven’t bought/ordered 75005 Rancor Pit, Amazon has it on a slight discount at $56.95, 6% off.

Is it presells or pre-sells? I can never tell. Same with pre-orders and preorders. Which is the correct way?

75013 Umbaran MHC (Mobile Heavy Cannon)

Dutch etailer bol.com listed all of the January 2013 assortment for Star Wars on their site and included some pretty good sized images. I’ve rehosted them on our flickr account and posted them below.

Thanks to Richel Rijnbergen for writing it in.
