Black Friday Deals

Black Friday Shopping

Update 2: Updated Toys’R’Us; added Barnes and Noble, Kmart

Update: Added Toys’R’Us, Meijer, Overstock

Just like last year, I’ll be compiling all of the Black Friday deal that mentions LEGO into one post. Forum member ufjason already started a thread about it and from the looks of it, there aren’t any wallet-breaking deals that are worth going after. I’ll be updating this list as more ads come in so keep an eye out.

You’ll also enjoy double VIP points and free shipping if your order total is $99 or more. This deal is good today only.

In case you’re wondering, Amazon’s price for the same set is a bit higher at $42.99.

Amazon Discounts 9509 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar to $39.99

Amazon has discounted 9509 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar down to the price it should have started at, $39.99, a 20% savings off of the $49.99 MSRP. I’m guessing not too many units moved at the old price. They’ll probably have tons left over post Christmas too if you’re patient and lucky enough.

Amazon Sells 9509 2012 Star Wars Advent Calendar, Wallets Cry

I don’t know when this happened, but Amazon has now listed the 9509 Star Wars Advent Calendar for sale for $49.99. Since it’s sold and shipped by Amazon, you can bet that price is MSRP. While not as expensive as TRU’s $59.99 price tag, it’s 10 bucks more than last year’s exclusive. Considering how poorly rated last year’s calendar was, this year’s looks to be slightly better. You get two exclusive holiday themed minifigs this year, Santa Maul and an R2-Snow2, some other non-exclusive army-builder figs, and a bevy of micro models. Like last year, we’ll be doing a daily review of each set come December so stay tuned and when I say ‘we’ I mean Ken. Thanks Ken!

Toy Fair 2012 - Star Wars - 9499 Gungan Sub - 08

I’ve started the upload process for our photos taken at the LEGO Collector Event this morning here in New York.k It’s slow going, and our connection is a little iffy, but we’ll do our best to make sure everything makes it onto the FBTB flickr stream.

Up right now is the Star Wars theme. We’ll be uploading the licensed themes first, then the rest afterwards. So take a peek and let us know what you think.
