Black Friday Deals

Black Friday Shopping

Update 2: Updated Toys’R’Us; added Barnes and Noble, Kmart

Update: Added Toys’R’Us, Meijer, Overstock

Just like last year, I’ll be compiling all of the Black Friday deal that mentions LEGO into one post. Forum member ufjason already started a thread about it and from the looks of it, there aren’t any wallet-breaking deals that are worth going after. I’ll be updating this list as more ads come in so keep an eye out.

Target Discounts 9492 TIE Fighter has discounted the Empire’s staple swarm fighter 9492 TIE Fighter down to a whopping low $34.99, down from MSRP of $54.99. That’s a discount of over 35%, matching the best price we’ve seen on this set to date. Deal is good online only according to their website but you may be able to get lucky in-store as well. Use your Red Card for an additional 5% off and free shipping. Given enough time, Amazon may match the price so keep an eye out.

Target has also discounted their exclusive 9494 Anakin’s Jedi Interceptor by 25%, down to an even $30. Deal is good both online and in-store. There’s also a price mistake in their weekly flyer showing 7962 Anakin’s & Sebulba’s Podracers at the same price, $30, but ymmv on that one. Other sets on sale for $30 include Monster Fighters 9465 The Zombies and the discontinued Ninjago 9444 Cole’s Tread Assault.

Update: Amazon has now matched the price on the 9492 TIE Fighter.

BOGO 50% TRU Sale


There’s some sort of strange online-only BOGO 50% off sale at TRU right now for some LEGO sets. It also includes some Star Wars. And the discount stacks on top of the already existing sale price. For instance, 7879 Hoth Echo Base’s MSRP is $89.99. TRU price is $94.99 but it’s currently on sale for $84.99, five bucks cheaper than MSRP. It qualifies for the BOGO deal. 7962 Anakin’s and Sebulba’s Podracers is the same story, $84.99. Add both to your cart, or two of one, and you can walk away with them for only $127.48. You’ll score free shipping or you can do a store pickup on the item. You can browse all their LEGO; items that qualify will have the BOGO offer in red below the item name. I have no idea when it expires but it’s not a bad sale for some sets.

This is way better than the virtual Brick Friday deal at Shop@Home happening today, unless you’re jonesing for some polybags and/or Shadow ARF Troopers.

Amazon Price Matches Toys’R’Us

Amazon marked down a few LEGO Star Wars sets to price match against Toys’R’Us current Cyberweek deals. However, they don’t offer a free MINI Vulture Droid or a tankless Astronaught glued magnet, but they do offer free shipping and no tax to most states.

In addition to the above deals, Amazon has a pretty good price on 4184 The Black Pearl as well, $84.99 down from MSRP $99.99.

[US] – TRU $10 off $50, $25 off $100 All LEGO

Through Sept. 3, TRU is offering discounts on all LEGO purchases both online and in-store: $10 off a $50 purchase, $25 off a $100 purchase.  Put another way, this is $40 for $50 of LEGO, or $75 for $100 of LEGO.  Even better, they are still offering 25% off 7962 Anakin’s and Sebulba’s Podracers, 7964 Republic Frigate, and 7965 Millennium Falcon sets, and forum user DarthMC reports that these discounts will stack online!  With free shipping over $75, this is a solid deal.

[USA] Falcon, Podracers, and Republic Frigate 25% Off at Toys’R’Us

That’s right, three of the newest sets, 7962 Anakin’s and Sebulba’s Podracers, 7964 Republic Frigate and 7965 Millennium Falcon are 25% off at TRU on 8/26 and 8/27. In store, you may need a coupon which can be found here. 25% off isn’t great, but it does drop the prices from TRU markup levels to below MSRP. The email I received says that all LEGO Star Wars sets are on sale as well.

7965 Millennium Falcon

There are a couple of freebie items (LEGO Favor Fun Value Bundle and LEGO Ninjago Skeleton Chopper) for purchases of $50 and $30 respectively. Free shipping for purchases of over $75.

However, a slight caveat (at least online) is that there is a limit of 1 of each set, so don’t expect to grab 2 identical sets for you and a friend with free shipping. No clue if the stores will enforce that, though. Good luck!
