New, Smaller Packaging

20110227213531

Forum member cowbug reports seeing a new style packaging on 8093 Plo Koon’s Starfighter that is smaller, more efficient, and, as a result, more eco-friendly. I, for one, applaud this new packaging and hope that this trend continues. While it doesn’t take the pain away from getting less pieces for more dollars, it IS better than getting 90% air inside the box. Forum member MisterFubar put it best:

I like the huge boxes, it makes me feel like I’m getting the little prize out of a huge box of cereal that they forgot to fill with cereal.

[USA] Deals Are Afoot at Toys R Us, Walmart

Walmart has rolled back 8099 MIDI-Scale Star Destroyer to $32 (from $39.99) and 8093 Plo Koon’s Starfighter to $19 (from $24.99) on Walmart.com. According to forum member JM72076, these prices last today (November 7) through November 24.

Also check out their “bundle packs” for some most intriguing bulk deals.

Not to be outdone, Toys R Us has a few sets on 25% clearance, including their exclusive 7752 Count Dooku’s Solar Sailer ($44.95 from $59.99) today through November 13. 3221 LEGO City Truck ($26.24 from $34.99), which is a most bodaciously meta set, is also included in the flyer.

Pretty nice discounts all around, even for TRU. That is a most agreeable price on the Solar Sailer. Plus, daylight savings starts today, so perhaps you can use that extra hour to do some bargain hunting.

Party on, dudes!

Toys R Us STAR WARS Sale 10/24-10/30

I just got the Toys R Us Weekly Flyer this morning, and the front cover is covered (heh) with Star Wars sales, including “These LEGO Star Wars Construction Sets.”

Pictured on the flyer are:

    8083 Rebel Trooper Battle Pack – $11.24 ($.75 off MSRP)
    8084 Snow Trooper Battle Pack - $11.24 ($.75 off MSRP)
    8093 Plo Koon’s Starfighter – $22.49 ($2.50 off MSRP)
    8096 Palpatine’s Shuttle – $48.74 ($11.25 off MSRP)

but every Star Wars set is “discounted” online. Be careful though, the 6212 X-Wing is listed as $59.99, “discounted” from $99.99, so some of the “sale” prices may not be legit.

TRU also has free shipping for all online orders $100 or more, and it’s still Bricktober, so look for the Free Retro Mini-Figure Magnet with any LEGO purchase of $20 or more. This week it’s the 1984 Castle Minifig.

They also have a “My First LEGO Set” Tub ($16.99 value) free with any LEGO purchase of $50 or more, but it doesn’t include Star Wars purchases.

EDIT: Sounds like in-stores is a little different. J30spiff reports that all Star Wars sets have a 10% discount.

Toys’R’Us Sale on LEGO Star Wars, Finally

TRU Sale

Toys’R’Us is finally giving some sale love on LEGO Star Wars. Right now through October 2, you can get 20% off the following sets:

Deals are good in store and online. TRU online also offers free shipping on orders above $100. While the potential savings are reduced since TRU adds their own markup above MSRP, larger orders that take advantage of the free shipping will yield a bit more of a savings.

One more thing: TRU in store is offering a $10 gift card if you spend $50 or more on Star Wars, and a $5 gift card if you spend $30 or more, making the deal a little sweeter. The only exclusions are books and electronics, so LEGO should qualify.

Summer Sets Spotted In The Wild

Various reports are coming in that the August wave of LEGO Star Wars sets are starting to appear at Toys’R’Us stores. Below is a list of the MSRPs so keep in mind these prices when shopping, as TRU may and most likely will add their infamous markup:

  • 8098 Clone Turbo Tank: $119.99
  • 8097 Slave I: $79.99
  • 8096 Emperor Palpatine’s Shuttle: $59.99
  • 8095 General Grievous Starfighter: $49.99
  • 8093 Plo Koon’s Starfighter: $24.99
  • 8089 Hoth Wampa Cave: $39.99

The 8129 AT-AT Walkericon set is a TRU exclusive and their price is $109.99.

Target and Walmart stores are also clearing out some older stock, presumably to make room for the new wave, so you can probably score some nice discounts on stuff like the Pirate Tank, Venator, and other various sets. Happy Hunting!
