Toys’R’Us Actually Has a Decent Sale


I received an email last night describing an unadvertised sale that Toys’R’Us brick and mortar stores. I drove down to my local store last night and can verify that the sale is true. Right now through November 23, select sets are marked down 50% off*. The reason for that asterisk is that TRU typically inflates their price up beyond MSRP, but even with their additional markup, the final sale price is still 30-36% off of MSRP. For example, I was able to pick up The Lone Ranger set 79108 Stagecoach Escape is priced $39.99. Normal MSRP for the set is $29.99. Final out-the-door price before tax was just $19.99, 33% off! I also picked up 79105 Baxter Robot Rampage for $24.99 (normal MSRP $39.99), and 75014 Battle of Hoth for $29.99 (normal MSRP $49.99). The list below isn’t comprehensive of everything that’s on sale, so use the price scanner to double check. Good luck!

Legends of Chima Eris’ Interceptor 19.99
City Satellite Launch Pad 11.99
City Tanker Truck 10.99
Lone Ranger Constitution Train Chase 64.99
Castle The Gatehouse Raid 17.49
Star Wars Battle of Hoth 29.99
Star Wars Desert Skiff 17.49
Technic Tractor 22.49
Lone Ranger Stag ecoach Escape 19.99
Lone Ranger Colby City Showdown 32.49
Castle Gold Getaway 10.99

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!

[CA] Toys’R’Us Sells 75014 Battle of Hoth

Update: ninnymuggins reports finding these at the LEGO Brand Retail shop in Schaumberg, IL as well.

For all you Canucks in the house, you should be aware that the Toys’R’Us exclusive 75014 Battle of Hoth is now available for purchase online. You’ll get free shipping once you hit a threshold of $75 or more. Unfortunately, there’s no way to get it in time for Christmas. Asking price is $64.99 which I imagine includes a $5 markup over MSRP.

Thanks to roflfant for the tip.

French blog Hoth Bricks unveiled a new, previously unannounced LEGO Star Wars set for 2013, 75014 Battle of Hoth. The set features a newly designed snowspeeder (that’s number four, kids), speederbike, tauntaun, gun turret, seven minifigs, and a brick-built probe droid. No word on pricing yet or availability yet but it smells like a TRU exclusive. As soon as we get more info, we’ll share it.
