More Amazon Fire Sales

75019 AT-TE

If I were to take a guess, all of these recent sales on Amazon is to get rid of stock to make room for some upcoming 2014 product. Just a guess. The latest notable sets to get hit with the discount hammer are:

Free Super Saver Shipping on orders of $35 or more, no minimum if you’re a Prime member.

Amazon Discounts LEGO Star Wars

Methinks Amazon is trying to make some room for the summer wave of sets by discounting a bunch of older sets. Rather than make 1 post for each set I’ll just a list a bunch of them here.

I’m not sure if Walmart’s or Target’s prices are comparable or if either of them discounted their own stock to trigger Amazon’s discounts, but no matter the reason, now would be a great time to fill the holes in your collection on the cheap.
