I was just in there and got a half dozen figures. No signage, I didn't even know they were on sale until I saw my receipt. I scored my first Elf, yea!

Cool! Bit of a bummer though that I'm saving up money... :(

I would buy the AT-AT or Bounty Hunter Assault Gunship (already own the Slave I), but I don't have the money.

@durins - Awesome!

Same old sale on 3 SW items that are already marked above retail.

There is also a nice deal on LEGO at Borders book stores. Everything LEGO is 20% off its original price.

@LEGO_Lord: Is that a Borders location that is being closed down, or is it one staying open?

LEGO-Lord: Seriously? HP can wait, I'm getting some minifigs pronto!

It is being closed down. 200 stores I believe.

Not my store, is this for closing stores or what? Borders is bankrupt, but the companies not shutting down, they're just closing 200 stores, gladly not mine.

20% off at Borders store is not much to celebrate about. Borders generally mark up the MSRP on Lego sets. When I did shop at Borders I held out for either the 40% or 50% off coupon. I'm pretty sure these coupons don't apply to the stores closing down.

Recently I got several sets at Barnes and Noble at 50% discount. First time I went there. The sets I picked up were at or below MSRP. I also decided to purchase their membership card for $50 annual fee. One perk is a savings of 10% on purchases.

Aww that sucks :(
I'm saving up for the Green Grocer! I have $36.00 right now.

Saving up for HP sets... Got around 60 or 70 bucks, hopefully I'll have enough for the three new sets! And then I'll have to find a way to get my hands on the two polybag sets (likely Brickmaster exclusives! Grr!) and that elusive Diagon Alley...

Hey $37 is not bad for the bounty hunter Dropship, too bad I bought it when it first came out.

@LegoCity578: Lego Green Grocer has been sold out for a while now.

Gravatar

I might try to get the new AT-AT.

"All" LEGO (besides H,SW and the normal) will be BOGO the week after next, it's always BOGO50% at TRU the week before Easter.

@TGBG - that would be great as we might have POTC sets by then, assuming they're not excluded.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Yeah, more of TRU's fake sales ... suggested retail $1.99 or b1g1halfoff comes to $4.50 still 51 cents higher than suggested retail...I'm not biting.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The figures I bought yesterday were $2.99 before the discount, which is Lego's retail price. It's worth a look at your local TRU.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@MatrixQuest, the MSRP for Series 1-2 was $1.99 but for Series 3-4 it has been $2.99 so this isn't a 'fake' sale, this is decent savings for those who want to pick up a few they don't have or for those who just like to see what they get out of a discounted random bag. :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I doubt TRU will have PotC in before May 1st. However the only themes excluded this time will be HP, and SW.

@MatrixQuest - the argument that "TRU marks up their sets so all of their sales are worthless" is both tired and wrong. Many sets including Minifigures are currently being sold at MSRP and most of the rest are marks up 10% or less. I realize that Hogwarts and some battlepacks are the exception but a few sets out of dozens does not set the standard. That being said and while all 3 of today's sales are pretty good, I will probably wait until the next BOGO50% just in case we get more spaceport and POTC sets.

My local TRU has aweful markups, some 10% to as much as over 30%-35% of retail on Lego(from what I understand they pay Lego more to get their product on the shelf before any of the major stores, even Lego stores). They even still have Prince of Persia at above retail on the shelf...why TRU, oh why...;)Literally collecting dust.
From what I remember the Slave I over here at TRU was like $89.99, At-At $119.99 (ouchy) and the Gunship like $54.99+. 30% does still help though. I'd still say shop around before TRU anyday.
Only rarely do you see an actual retail price on a Lego set there (recently I bought NinjaGo Skull Motorbike for it's retail price). But it's New York so I'm guessing they say it's the cost of the high rent in our areas. Target is another prime offender(they used to be great but now, above retail on just about all Lego).
The minifigures are going for $3.50 over here while at my local Lego Store they're $2.99.
The BOGO though can ease the pain on those for sure.

@MatrixQuest...I'm with ya' on TRU markups man. Terrible...but with BOGO's, it's not bad. With the current mini-figs, they're not $1.99 anymore. They're $2.99 retail (some TRU's $3.50) so a BOGO saves a bit, and ordering like 10 or more really helps with savings.

Gravatar

TRU has actually lowered a lot of their prices since Christmas time, I'm not sure why but they have. In the past the BOGO50% and B2G1 were almost pointless, but now they are worth it. More so because the minifigures will never go on sale at the LEGO Brand Stores.

Some of TRU's prices are nuts, just don't buy the sets from them. No one is forcing people to shop at TRU... besides LEGO with the minifigure series. lol

@legoDad42 - It's my understanding that many NY stores charge a premium above and beyond their sister stores elsewhere so the markups may indeed be worse for you. For the majority of the country, however, @MSRP or 10% over MSRP is the norm for most Lego sets at TRU. Therefore, the 30% reductions end up more in the 23% range and BOGO50% for like priced sets end up more in the 18% range off each. Just from memory, I recall TRU selling the minifigs, imperial shuttle, Cargo train, Shuttle adventure, public transport, medieval market, Small car, skeleton chopper, kingdoms tower rescue, Atlantis HQ, Scarab attack, and ninja training for MSRP. And sonic boom and Jedi shuttle were pretty close to MSRP as I recall. Base plates and battlepacks are another thing, though. As for Target, I can't speak for the NY stores but those in VA, MD, TN, NC, etc all seemed to be selling mostly at MSRP.

@TGBG- TRU does make a habit of increasing their margins on Lego around Christmas then lowering those prices afterwards. We saw this with S3 minifigs and the TRU truck to just name two. To me, this practice is inexcusable.

7632 Crawler Crane x 6 @ 27.50 each
7642 Garage x 8 @ $56.25 each
7930 Bounty Hunter Gunship x 2 @ $37 each
30050 Republic Attack Shuttle (free with Star Wars purchase)

@rocao - is this now the brag thread? :o)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Now TRU is getting real desperate, they're trying to give away S3 FOR FREE with $30 purchase.

Has S4 hit Target yet? Next week's ad shows select sets 30% off.

Rarely do I bother with Toys R us. Their price is inflated, even when an item is on "sale", such as a 30% off, it is 30% off their inflated price, not 30% off normal retail price. Additional, most of the time their sale items are never in stock. In most instances, I can order from Walmart and have the item sent site to store and pay less than Toys R us sale price.
