Thursday 11/17 Amazon Lightning Deals

Postby UOldPirate » Thu Nov 17, 2011 7:53 am

Hey FBTBers, it looks like today could be another Lego day on Amazon's lightning deals. Since the deals are hidden, this is obviously pure speculation, but 5 of the descriptions match up perfectly to Lego products in the $25-$30 range. Here are the descriptions and my guesses:

8:00 AM PST - The invasion of the planet Naboo has begun! (7929-The Battle of Naboo ?)
9:00 AM PST - This log cabin is an ideal base for a wilderness adventure. (5766-Log Cabin ? )
11:00 AM PST - It's a high-speed battle on the ice for Anakin Skywalker. (8085-Freeco Speeder ?)
3:00 PM PST - Ready to unleash their firepower on the Republic forces. (8086-Droid Trifighter or 7957 - Sith Nightspeeder ?)
4:00 PM PST - Ambush the scout trooper from the treetop hideout. (7956-Ewok Attack ?)

There is also a 1:00 PM PST SpongeBob deal that could be Lego, but I would guess the interest in that here would be minimal. (Krusty Krab Adventures fits the $25-$30 Lego pattern). I apologize in advance if this turns out to be way off target. :)

Link to the (maybe) LEGO deals. I'm not getting my hopes up on this one, since they're featuring a variety of toys. I wouldn't be surprised if they had some Hasbro Star Wars toys meant for those descriptions. It's hard to tell and I wouldn't put it past them to be tricksy.

If you google as follows:
" <insert lightning deal phrase>"
It should return the item that will de the deal.

First deal was 20% off Lego Battle of Naboo

30% off the Log Cabin for the 9 a.m. deal... Meh...

If it was 50% I'd have bitten for a 2nd one...

looks like the initial predictions were correct: freeco speeder and lego spongebob were the deals earlier. droid trifighter and ewok attack look like it's a go for 3pm/4pm.

$5 off Ewok Attack. Pass. I'm not picking that one up until it's close to 50% off.

Oh wait, Amazon says the list price is $29.99. So, $10 off. Still, pass.

Got me some Ewoks. Still a bit of a rip-off at $20, but at least it's about $7.50 off retail once you factor in tax, and it means I can complete my Ewok collection.
