Price Wars! Amazon vs. Walmart On Select LEGO Star Wars Sets

75021 Republic Gunship

Amazon and Walmart are having a bit of a price war, matching each other’s discount on a couple of sets. I’m not sure who fired the first volley but we are all winners. Discounts are applied on some of the older sets that will be retiring soon if they haven’t been already. This is just a sample list of some of the larger sets. Some battle packs may also be discounted down to $10 or less.

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 75021 Republic Gunship to $89.99

75021 Republic Gunship

Amazon is applying a nice 25% discount on 75021 Republic Gunship bringing the price down to just $89.99. With free shipping and no tax to most states, this is one of the better prices this set has seen in a while.

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 Sail Barge, Gunship by 29%

75020 Jabba's Sail Barge

These are probably one of the most significant discounts we’ve seen on this pair of sets since their debut back in August. Right now, Amazon is applying a 29% discount on both 75020 Jabba’s Sail Barge and 75021 Republic Gunship bringing their prices down to $84.99, down from $119.99 MSRP. Amazon usually applies a discount to match another online retailer but checking the usual suspects yields no competitive match. This one seems to be all Amazon.

Also, if you’ve missed this the first couple of times we mentioned it, 75019 AT-TE seems to be on perma-discount at $60.99, a 32% discount off of $89.99 MSRP, thanks to Target selling it at that price.

Amazon, Walmart Discount DeLorean, Gunship

21103 The DeLorean Time Machine

It’s holiday shopping time. Can you feel it yet? I’m sure we’ll be seeing more posts like this where etailers try and out-price each other for your hard-earned dollars.

Today’s fight brings us two deals. The first deal is for 21103 The DeLorean Time Machine, aka the Back to the Future set. Normaly priced at $34.99, Amazon and Walmart both have it just $29.97, a 14% discount off of $34.99 MSRP and probably the lowest price we’ve seen on the set.

The other item is 75021 Republic Gunship, the finest gunship to date. Walmart currently has it listed for $79.97! That’s a 33% discount off of $119.99 MSRP! Amazon hasn’t matched that price yet, but it’s just a matter of time so keep checking back.

Thanks to Nick for the heads up.

Amazon Discounts 75019 AT-TE by 32%, Others On Sale

75019 AT-TE

Amazon is swinging their discount hammer all high and mightily and is offering some sweet discounts on new sets. Like the title says, they are offering 75019 AT-TE for 32% off, just $60.99, down from $89.99.

75021 Republic Gunship is only 20% off, down to $95.99 from $119.99 MSRP.

75020 Jabba’s Sail Barge is better, at 25% off, down to $89.99 from $119.99 MSRP.

Though not really all that new, 75018 Jek-14’s Stealth Starfighter is commanding a respectable 27% off, down to $50.99 from $69.99 MSRP.

Get’em while gettin’s good. Especially that AT-TE. I doubt that price would last for long.

YoYo.com is offering customers two coupons that stack which well net you a savings of about 37% once everything is said and done:

Yep, stackable 20% coupons.

Review: 75021 Republic Gunship

RGS - Full Set

Anyone who’s been on the forums for more than a few years can tell you that about every six months, a new thread pops up (or the old one is revived) that asks a fairly basic question for collectors: “What is your favorite Star Wars set?” There are a lot of variations on the thread (favorite minifigure, least favorite, set you’d most like to be stranded on a desert island with), but it always ends up back to that same question.

And there are always two sets that dominate the list in the LEGO Star Wars line… 2006’s Jabba’s Sail Barge and 2008’s Republic Gunship. Both of these sets are showing up in the second-half of 2013, and share the same $120 price point. Apparently, LEGO has declared war on our wallets (especially since the Tower of Orthanac is here and the Ewok Village is coming soon). I have, and love, the last version of the RGS, and that’s saying something since it was a Clone Wars set.

I never cared for the Clone Wars sets or the demonic Clone Wars faces in general, but I can respect the 2008 RGS for being a very good set. When I first saw the previews of this set in the FBTB Toy Fair coverage, I came to the same conclusion that a lot of our readers did: “just another rehash to make some money.” While LEGO has proved that they can remake a set and greatly improve it (see the Second Slave I, the latest X-Wing, the B-Wing/Y-Wing remakes, etc), they’ve also had some mindless cash grabs with them (the last Slave I, umpteen million Jedi Starfighters).

So the real question is, at $120 (US), does the first Republic Gunship in five years fit into column A or column B?

Oh, and before we get started… I realize that I have a couple of pieces reversed on one of the engines. I’d popped it off to take it apart to check out the interior again, and put it back together wrong. Oops!
