“After Christmas Blowout!” at Toys R Us?

LSW Backpack

So I mentioned to check the clearance aisles for deals. Now here come the official sales. First off we have Toys R Us, which in their latest e-mail flyer, which advertises “All LEGO Star Wars On Sale ALL WEEK LONG!” It also says:

FBTB Charity Drive Final Tally, Raffle Winners


I’m extremely happy to report the final donation numbers to the FBTB Charity Drive. In total, we’ve received 1,195 donations. Like last year, FBTB will cover the fees that Paypal ding’s each donation, so I’ll be making a final contribution of $2,390 to Child’s Play.

Now, before I announce the raffle winners, I just want thank everyone again who donated $2, $10, $100, or whatever amount you donated. Every dollar counts and will go a long way to help children in need. Being a new(ish) father myself, my perspective on life has changed a lot. I can’t imagine what parents must be going through when their child is sick and hospitalized. Gift shopping is probably the last thing on their minds, and this is where Child’s Play steps up to the plate, by providing gifts to those sick kids. The holidays is all about giving, and your collective generosity means a lot. Thank you.

So, with all that being said, let’s reveal the winners!

Just a quick update on the FBTB Charity Drive: We’ve surpassed the halfway point which is just awesome. But we’re still shy of our goal of 1100 something donations. To those of you who have donated once or multiple times, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. To those of you who have not decided yet to pledge: I will entice you with a third place prize. That’s right, I’ve decided to give everyone who donates a third shot at winning something cool. How about a copy of 8097 Slave I?

November Giveaway: Slave I


You know how I said I’d be doing a monthly Battle Pack giveaway? Okay, I lied, I’m skipping the Battle Pack for November. Instead, I’ll be giving away a copy of 8097 Slave I. Okay, I lied, I won’t be giving it away. Instead, The LEGO Company is generously donating the prize and will be handling the delivery. Everyone is welcome to enter, one entry per household, and your delivery address cannot be a PO box. For the other rules and regulations, be sure to read the giveaway rules page. After all that, if you want to try your luck at the drawing, send me an email to [email protected] with Slave I Nom Nom as the subject line. The giveaway window is open for one week, closing on November 7, 2010 at 11:59pm Pacific Standard Time.

Many thanks to The LEGO Company for providing this month’s prize.

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!
