FBTB Draft 9: 8484 Ultimate Build Lightning McQueen

We’re kicking off 2013 with FBTB Parts Draft #9 on Saturday January 19th @ 10 am PST!

We’ll be drafting 10 copies of CARS 8484 Ultimate Build Lightning McQueen for $16, about 50% off MSRP! (shipping charges will be calculated later for each participant.)


You can see the inventory for this set on the always-useful Brickset.

The draft will follow our usual rules.

Draft registration will commence on Monday January 7th at 11 am PST, which you can do by clicking through to the topic linked below this post and simply posting “KA-CHOW!” Feel free to post any and all questions or comments in the thread; however, anyone posting “KA-CHOW!” before the clock hits 11 am PST on January 7th will not be allowed to participate.

PS: Check out Ace’s review of the set here!

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.

[Can] All Cars LEGO 20% Off @ TRU

8484 Ultimate Build Lightning Mcqueen - 1

File this one under every little bit helps. TRU Canada is offering a 20% discount on all Cars LEGO through Sept. 28th. Although you won’t be able to get my favourite, the Walmart exclusive Ultimate Build Mater there`s still a wide selection to choose from and if you purchase $100+ online they’re offering free shipping.

With Ace pumping out the Cars reviews I thought this may be useful to those in the Great White North looking for a little break. I for one will make use of this to pick up a couple of sets for my son`s upcoming birthday. And face it, Christmas is just around the corner.

Review: 8484 Ultimate Build Lightning McQueen

8484 Ultimate Build Lightning Mcqueen - 1

It isn’t quite as much of a letdown as UB Francesco, but does the Ultimate Build version of the four-time Piston Cup champion come away a winner?
