75005 Rancor Pit has been more or less on discount since it debuted. It now reaches an all time low thanks to Amazon.com. They are now selling the set for a mere $48.40, almost 20% off of MSRP. Free shipping and still no tax to most states make this a great bargain.

Seeking to wash their hands of this controversial set, Amazon has discounted LEGO Star Wars 9516 Jabba’s Palace by 17% dropping the price down to below the $100 threshold at $99.97. I’m totally kidding about that first part; it’s probably just coincidence. Anyways, no tax free shipping yadda yadda yadda. If you’re looking for the companion Rancor set, 75005 Rancor Pit, it’s still sitting pretty at a mere 6% off, $56.44.
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.
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?
Did you pick up the $99 dollar deal on 9516 Jabba’s Palace from yesterday’s mention? Did you wish you had 75005 Rancor Pit to go underneath it? Well you’re in luck since Amazon just stocked up on the big ugly beast. Price is $59.99 with free shipping and no tax to most states.
A quick search yields more 2013 sets are available:
- 75000 Clone Troopers vs Droidekas $12.99
- 75001 Republic Troopers vs Sith Troopers $12.99
- 75002 AT-RT $19.99
No sign of that 75003 A-wing Starfighter set or the 75013 Umbaran MHC (Mobile Heavy Cannon), yet but keep your eyes peeled. It might show up in the next few days.
Big thanks to Steve for writing it in! Now to try and find some more money to spend at Amazon…
