Amazon Discounts 9488 Elite Clone Trooper and Commando Droid Battle Pack

Both Amazon and Target have discounted 9488 Elite Clone Trooper and Commando Droid Battle Pack down to a paltry $8.55, down from MSRP of $12.99. Target offers free shipping on the item; REDCard holders will also see an additional 5% off. Amazon has free shipping if you’re a Prime member, but let’s be real here, battle packs are army builders, so you can’t just order one now can you? Order 3 to hit free shipping if you’re not a Prime member.

Walmart’s Bundle Deals

Walmart.com is currently offering some bundle deals that are worth mentioning. All include their exclusive and excellent 8092 Luke’s Landspeeder and one of the following:

The net discount is about 20%. The worst deal is probably the Jedi T-6 Shuttle offer. They can’t discount that set deep enough to make it worth while.

Shipping is free to a store or 97 cents to your house.

Review: 9488 Elite Clone Trooper & Commando Droid Battle Pack

The Full Set

I’m not going to lie to you… I love the Battle Packs. I buy the heck out of these things. I even bought multiples of the Ice Cream Clones that we had last year. I even bought several assassin droid battle packs, so I take the droids, even though they’re fragile and annoying. This battle pack gives us both!

But I’m also one of those people that accuses LEGO of using the higher price-points to make glorified battle packs (I’m looking at you, Geonosian Cannon and Ewok Attack). This year, we got two battle packs. We have an upcoming review of the excellent Endor Battle Pack, which I’m buying up like crazy, and I’m going to take a shot at our obligatory Clone Wars battle pack. So, we’re going to go into this asking ourselves… how many more custom clones do we need?

LEGO Star Wars January 2012 Now Up for Preorder, Free Poster

Happy New Year, folks!

LEGO Shop@Home put up the January 2012 assortment of LEGO Star Wars for preorder. Delivery is to be expected on or around January 30. It should be noted that 9494 Anakin’s Jedi Interceptor and 9495 Gold Leader’s Y-Wing Starfighter are marked as “Hard to Find” meaning they are retailer exclusives. No word yet as to which retailer they will be exclusive to yet. All preorders will come with an exclusive LEGO Star Wars poster. No minimum order indicated and no image of what the poster looks like but if I had to guess, it’s going to be a poster showcasing all the LEGO Star Wars minifigs for 2012.

Is it sad that I’m no longer fazed by the high prices and low piece counts? Such as the TIE Fighter set, priced at $54.99 but has less pieces than Gold Leader’s Y-wing? Eh.

More 2012 Set Images: Star Wars, Cars, DC, Spongebob

9494 Anakin's Jedi Interceptor - 1

Courtesy of German toy website SpielwarenHegmann.de, we now have pictures of some of the 2012 assortment of LEGO Star Wars, Cars, Super Heroes Ultrabuild figures, and Spongebob Squarepants. Keep in mind these are just a few pictures of the 2012 assortment. There are more headed our way but that weren’t uploaded by the site. We’ve seen some of the Star Wars sets, but now we get some nice clear pictures. The Cars and Spongebob sets, to my understanding, have never been seen before. Hit the jump for the complete thumbnail gallery.
