[AU] Australia TRU offering 7754 Home One for $60 off!

Thanks to forum member LL918 for sharing this tip from down under.

If you happen to live in or are visiting Australia, check out their Toys’R’Us stores for a decent deal on the TRU exclusive 7754 Home One Mon Calamari set.  The set is on sale for $140 through Christmas Eve.  This is $40 off the MSRP and $60 off the TRUP.  Get one while you got the chance!

[US] Toys’R’Us Cooking Something Up Sweet for Black Friday?

UPDATE: Allow me to apologize for allowing my own fanboy excitement to possibly make this out to be more than it ever was. Apparently, as a strictly LEGO Star Wars collector, who doesn’t collect other Star Wars items like others, I read “figure” and thought “minifigure” while others thought “action figure”. And that that makes sense, since TRU stocks an exclusive Commander Ponds action figure. As it appears at this moment, Home One will likely be coming free with the action figure and not a new minifigure. How a LEGO set and action figure together make a desirable combination, I don’t know, but if that’s your cup of tea then Black Friday will still be good to you.  If you drink some other brew, until there is further information to the contrary available, you all can file this under the proverbial “kool-aid” folder.

As your resident Sales & Deals guru, I am doing my research to help you all save money on our favorite plastic obsession, including this fall on Black Friday–the mother of all shopping days. I came across a really interesting something in an early release of Toys’R’Us’s Black Friday ad that I know you all would want to know:

LEGO Star Wars: The Clone Wars Fan’s Vote Anniversary Edition – Home One Mon Calamari Star Cruiser (7754)
Our Price: $109.99
FREE Star Wars Commander Ponds figure with purchase!

What? The Home One is not, I repeat not, on sale, but it comes with a cool gift apparently! What I read into this is that if you buy a 7754 you get something else more, a minifig! Is this minifig a mini-set, or just parts? Who knows. It is a vague text-only bit of intriguing information. Help us in the community learn more about this and I’ll update you as details come in. Be sure to comment on this post’s related discussion topic in the “Finds” forum.

Review: 7754 Home One

Now that it’s out of the way, I promise that I will not use that absurdly over-used line from Ackbar. This set has a special place in Star Wars lore, because we helped to contribute to the ideas. That’s right, FBTB, me, you (well, not you over there eating paste), the community, we all helped give ideas towards this set. Okay, I’ll admit, this was my second choice (I wanted the Senate arrest and the glorious jedi that would come with it), but it’s still a nifty set.
