Clearance Prices Drop at LEGO Shop@Home

Swamp Speeder

LEGO Shop @ Home has reduced some of its clearance items’ prices. Nothing too mind-blowingly awesome, but there are some noteworthy mentions.

>>8091 Republic Swamp Speeder $14.98 (down from $29.99)
>>8424 Mater’s Spy Zone $7.48 (down from $14.99)
>>8484 Ultimate Build Lightning McQueen $14.98 (down from $29.99)
>>8639 Big Bentley BustOut $41.98 (down from $69.99)

The Republic Swamp Speeder is the clear highlight at 50% off. Like most 2011 Star Wars exclusives, it had a fairly inflated price considering the piece count. Now it’s a much better value.

May The Fourth Be With You Promotion

LEGO Brand Retail

Shadow ARF Trooper

… which actually starts May 3rd, which is kind of odd if you ask me. Why not start May 4th and continue to May 5th?

Anyways, got the official word about LEGO Shop@Home’s promotions for the unofficial Star Wars Day quasi-holiday.

First up is a FREE exclusive Shadow ARF Trooper minifigure with a purchase of $75 or more in LEGO Star Wars products from LEGO Shop@Home or LEGO Brand Retail. You’ll also score FREE shipping if you shop online.

Next is a FREE LEGO Star Wars poster commemorating 10 years of LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector sets, picture below.

LEGO Brand Retail

And the rumors were true: for North American customers only, with every purchase, you’ll automatically be entered in a drawing for a 1st Edition 10179 Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon. The 1st edition run came with a numbered certificate.

You get 10% off these sets:

and 20% off these:

May the force be with you. And may your wallets and spouses forgive you.

Review: 8091 Republic Swamp Speeder

“The Infantry Support Platform (ISP), also known as the swamp speeder, was a repulsorlift speeder first deployed by the Grand Army of the Republic for swamp combat during the late Clone Wars.” Thanks Wookipedia, without you I was going to assume this set was something a drunken set designer thought up to fill out the Star Wars lineup.
