RC Clone Turbo Tank By Max Yang

Max Yang over at MocPages built this remote-control Clone Turbo Tank with working lights even. If you can sit through this 13 minute video, it’ll show some of the features and functions of the tank.

I don’t know, maybe it’s just me but I would have expected a CTT to move a lot faster than that, given it has the word “Turbo” in the name.

“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:

    >8097 Slave 1 – Save $10
    >6212 X-Wing – Save $15
    >8098 Clone Turbo Tank – Save $30
    >8129 AT-AT Walker – Save $30

Thing is, these discounts are not showing up online, and all four of these sets are marked up well over MSRP. Not sure what the deal is, but that “promotion” is running through January 1. You also get a free LEGO Star Wars backpack with $30+ purchase.

8098 CTT Cheap on Amazon

8098 Clone Turbo Tank

Maybe not as cheap as you were hoping, but if you were looking to take advantage of the sale price of 8098 Clone Turbo Tank at Toys’R’Us.com but decided to act on it too late and realize now it’s sold out, you can pick one up at Amazon.com for $89.24. Free shipping and no tax to most states make this a far better deal anyway.

Bricktober Begins!

8098 Clone Turbo Tank

It’s October, and like last year Toys’R’Us is doing a month long LEGO promotion in both the U.S. and Canada.

Every week, you can get a free vintage minifigure with magnet base with a LEGO purchase of $20 or more. You can check out this page to see what the selection of minifigs are. For the first week, the minifigure is the Imperial Soldier.

Also this week for U.S. stores and Toys’R’Us.com, ALL LEGO is on sale up to 30% off, including LEGO Star Wars. Best bet? 8098 Clone Turbo Tank for $90.99. If you order online, tack on anything to bring your order over $100 for free shipping. If you buy in-store, the deal gets a little sweeter with this coupon for a free $10 gift card with your purchase of $75 or more.

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!

10195 + 8098 = Awesome!

Still not convinced the underrated 10195 Republic Dropship with AT-OT Walkericon is worth getting?
