Amazon Discounts 75002 AT-RT

Both Amazon and Target have discounted the excellent 75002 AT-RT down to $16.15, down from $19.99 MSRP. It’s a penny less at Amazon. 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, epic ground battles played out on your living room floor require more than one walker to stomp around, so you can’t just order one now can you? Order 2 to hit free shipping if you’re not a Prime member.

I would have done a fourth post for the Desert Skiff set, but Amazon raised its price on that set back up to $18.19. Target still has it listed for $16.15 but in store only.

Amazon Rolls Back Price on 9496 Desert Skiff

You can forget my earlier report on this set being marked down a paltry 22%. 22% is nothing, it’s the dirt on your shoe, the booger in your tissue. The real deal is 35%. Yessir, 35%, that’s what “>Amazon has it at right now: $16.15 If you don’t got Prime, order two to reach the free shipping threshold. Or get a book or DVD, like this one.

Thanks to murphquake for the tip.

Amazon’s 20% or More off Sale on LEGO Star Wars

Amazon’s running some kind of wacky sale. I hesitated reporting on this sale because a) it’s only 20% and b) I usually find out about it only for it to revert to a higher price before I hit the publish button. Some of these deals seem to be sticking around though.

9516 Jabba’s Palace Discounted 27%

Update: The deal has expired.

Amazon, your friendly neighborhood sales outlet, has discounted 9516 Jabba’s Palace by a 27% off. It now sits pretty at $87.17. The companion pieces are also seeing a slight discount: 9496 Desert Skiff is 21% off at $19.79 and 75005 Rancor Pit is 13% off at $51.97.

Thanks go to Margot for writing it in.

Amazon Discounts 9500 Sith Fury-class Interceptor, 75002 AT-RT

It’s funny in a way. Some items seem to be on perma-discount on Amazon, like 9496 Desert Skiff. That thing will not budge past $16.97. Others seem to fluctuate with no rhyme or reason. 9500 Sith Fury-class Interceptor is a perfect example of this. Its price is now at $65.90, a 27% discount off of MSRP. It might be the best price we’ve seen on this set so far.

The other notable mention is 75002 AT-RT. I’ve personally been waiting on this set to see a price drop and 15% isn’t too shabby of a discount. It’s now $17.00.

Save 20+% on 9496, 9499, 9500, 9516

Update 11:06am PST: Amazon has 9516 Jabba’s Palace marked down to $86.77.

Right now, Amazon has a pretty respectable discount on a handful of sets, all of at least 20%. If you caught 75005 Rancor Pit on the cheap last week, you can now pick up 9516 Jabba’s Palace for 23% off, $92.44.

Since 75020 Jabba’s Sail Barge has been confirmed for an fall release, you should pick up 9496 Desert Skiff and complete the the Tatooine scenes from Return of the Jedi. It’s still 32% off at $16.97.

The last two sets on sale are from Episode I and Expanded Universe. The Bongo Sub set, 9499 Gungan Sub, is discounted 21%, down to $55.03. 9500 Sith Fury-class Interceptor is also 21% off, down to $70.97.

And finally, even though it’s only 10% off, it’s still a good deal and was sold out during the holidays. Amazon has restocked on 10188 Death Star, charging you $358 even.

Amazon Discounts 9496 Desert Skiff

Amazon has placed a pretty nice discount on 9496 Desert Skiff. The set has an MSRP of $24.99 but you can pick it up for 28% off, $17.97. There is no tax to most states and free shipping if you buy two or pad your order with something else to push it over the $25 threshold. Ever since the holidays, sales news has been pretty light so it’s good to see a decent discount on a great set.

Amazon Discounts Some Stuff

Don’t like the new stuff? Still need to catch up? Looking for the old stuff on discount? Well this post is for you as Amazon has put some of the current wave of sets as well as some long-in-the-tooth exclusives on the discount rack. I’m kind of not surprised at the discounts we’re seeing for some of the current sets. With all the new themes and sets coming in, they’ve gotta make room somehow. Today, we’re seeing a few discounts that are worth mentioning, assuming, of course, that you didn’t break the bank/max out the credit cards/incite the wrath of your significant other already.

In the final few shopping days before Christmas, I’d imagine there is going to be some killer deals from various online retailers. The shuttle news from yesterday being a good example of that. Though not quite as spendy, Amazon has discounted 9496 Desert Skiff by 20%, dropping the price below $20 at $19.99. Pad your order to reach $25 or more and score free shipping.
