LEGO Shop@Home Post-Christmas Clearance List

LEGO Shop@Home has released their post-Christmas clearance set list. Discount amount for the items listed is 20%, with only a handful of non-set items set at 50%. I organized the list and provided links below. Some of the links I was not able to verify, mostly the miscellaneous items. No prices, you’ll have to click through for that. All prices are good starting on December 25th. No exact time was given but historically all clearance items would reflect their discount starting at 12:01am EST December 25th/9pm Pacific December 24th. Discounts should be good for all regions as well. And finally, all prices are good in store as well. Many items are already in “sold out” status online, but if there are things you’re definitely hankering to pick up and have a LEGO Brand Retail store near you, it may behoove you to visit a store the day after Christmas.

Wondering what Friends sets are on clearance? You’ll have to visit Heartlake Friends for that list!

LEGO Shop@Home Double VIP Points On Select Star Wars Sets

Double VIP Points - January 20-31

LEGO Shop@Home is offering to double your VIP point pleasure from now until the end of the month when you purchase one of the 3 Star Wars sets pictured above. I know some folks have started to wonder how much longer the 10188 Death Star will be around, so maybe this would be a good time to grab it up. I don’t imagine we’ll see any free shipping until at least Easter so it’s your call, though it does remind me that I still need pick up that V-wing (I only want it for the droid).

Walmart’s Got Bundles of Bundles

LEGO Star Wars Building Set 3-Pack Bundle

Walmart has online deals going this week on several bundles, including Star Wars, Harry Potter, City, and Ninjago.  You can even customize your own “bundle” and score 2 for $20, 2 for $30, 2 for $40, 2 for $50, or 2 for $60.  Though not exactly a door-buster-type deal, this is a great way to take the edge off of some of those smaller kits, or add a few bonuses onto a larger purchase (like the Millennium Falcon, Imperial V-wing, and Mando Pack bundle for $139.97).

Thanks to forum user GrayMattR for the tip.

Amazon Price Matches TRU

If you’re not keen on paying sales tax and want to take advantage of the (almost) 25% off sale at TRU, you should head on over to Amazon.com where they’ve price matched the same sets that are on sale at TRU. I just browsed a few sets, but I’m guessing all of them apply. The only drawback is that Amazon doesn’t carry the TRU exclusives, obviously, like the Toys’R’Us Truck, Skeleton Bowling, etc. Here’s the complete list of what’s on sale:

Amazon also has some $20 sets still marked down to $15:

There may be more, but these are the ones I can think of right now.

Also, I wanted to mention that the very excellent Alien Conquest 7066 Earth Defence HQ is currently priced at $71.99, netting you a savings of 20%.

Oddly enough, some things aren’t price matched like Star Wars 7965 Millennium Falcon and City 4643 Boat Transporter (they’re $112.49 and $29.99 at TRU, respectively), but they may eventually catch up and mark them down.

[USA] TRU Bricktober Week 3 Brings Free Battlepacks

The Toys R Us Bricktober event rolls onward with the Retro Knight Minifigure Magnet available with any $20 LEGO purchase and they’ve discounted a few choice sets with at least two worth checking out:

Free glued magnet, a couple of discounted sets and free shipping on orders over $75 not enough for you? My, how jaded you’ve become. How about a free Star Wars Battle pack when you spend a scant $40? So drop your cash and take your pick. Selection may vary in store.

Thanks to ufjason for the heads up!

7915 Imperial V-wing Starfighter Rollbacked to $15

Walmart.com is offering the silver astromech outfitted 7915 Imperial V-wing Starfighter at a 25% discount, down to $15 even. Shipping to home is .97 cents; alternatively, you should be able to pick it up at your local store for free. Tax applies where applicable. Normally, Amazon will quietly match the price but it seems that Amazon doesn’t have any in stock; just fulfilling orders for third party resellers.

Thanks to SugarConroy for the tip.

Target Sales For This Week

7915 Imperial V-wing Starfighter

Target this week is having a modest sale on a couple of themes. City, Star Wars and Pharoah’s Quest are seeing discounts anywhere from 5-10% off. The best deal? They also have a few $19.99 MSRP sets on sale for $15, including the above-pictured 7915 Imperial V-wing Starfighter. The other $15 sets are Pharoah’s Quest 7307 Flying Mummy Attack and City 7286 Prisoner Transport, all great picks.

Also, it seems that they are (finally) putting Prince of Persia sets on clearance. YMMV on the amount of discount.

Thanks to J30spiff for the tip.

[Toys R Us] 25% Off Select Star Wars

T-6 Jedi Shuttle

Forum member HoosierZephyr discovered a sale on Star Wars sets over at Toys R Us. Looks like it’s good in-store and online.

    >>7915 Imperial V-wing Starfighter $16.49 (MSRP $19.99)
    >>7929 The Battle of Naboo $20.24 (MSRP $24.99)
    >>7930 Bounty Hunter Assault Gunship $39.74 (MSRP $49.99)
    >>7931 T-6 Jedi Shuttle $47.24 (MSRP $59.99)

The other Star Wars sets are 10% off. As always, keep in mind that the actual discount is less than advertised when you compare to MSRP. Even so, the larger sets do have a pretty decent sale price.

Sale ends February 19th.

[UK] Asda sale on Star Wars Lego including 70% off 7929 Battle of Naboo!

Asda are very rapidly becoming the place to get Lego in the UK.  Despite these sets only just being released, they’ve decided to discount the Star Wars sets they stock by some rather nice discounts :

7929 Battle Of Naboo – RRP £25.99 – Asda Price £8

7913 Clone Trooper Battle Pack – RRP £9.99 – Asda Price £6.97

7914 Mandalorian Battle Pack – RRP £9.99 – Asda Price £6.97

7915 Imperial V-Wing Starfighter – RRP £21.99 – Asda Price £14.97

None of these sets appear to be on their website and what sets your local Asda stocks may vary.  I had to wait a few days for my local store to get any of the Battle Of Naboo sets in stock.  But today they got some, so I bought 3, leaving 9 left on the shelf.

There are some savings on older sets too :

8092 Luke’s Landspeeder – RRP £25.99 – Asda Price £18.47

8083 Rebel Trooper Battle Pack – RRP £9.99 – Asda Price £8

8084 Stormtrooper Battle Pack- RRP £9.99 – Asda Price £8

These are all available online too.

Review: 7915 Imperial V-wing Starfighter

Review: 7915 Imperial V-wing Starfighter

Ah, the V-wing. Two seconds of screen time is more than enough to warrant a set, and then apparently a redesign with a different color scheme a few years later…
