Bricktober at Toys R Us - Week 4
For this last week in their Bricktober promotion (10/24 - 10/30), Toys R Us is having a Star Wars LEGO sale. While most sets will be just 10% off the TRU price, the following 4 sets will be available for 25% off the TRU price: Emperor Palpatine's Shuttle (8096), Rebel Battle Pack (8083), Imperial Battle Pack (8084) and Plo Koon's Starfighter (8093). However, once you take the TRU mark-up into account, the only nice deal is the Shuttle at about 20% off the MSRP. The best thing about this deal is that you can pick up two battle packs to qualify for the 4th Retro Minifigure Magnet, the Black Falcon soldier. As with the other promotional minifigure magnets, you receive one with a qualifying $20 purchase of LEGO sets or games.
UPDATE: For whatever reason, the Star Wars LEGO sets are already on sale online. Too bad the Retro Fireman Magnet is no longer in stock.
UPDATE 2: There's an additional promotion next week. With any LEGO construction set purchase of $50 or more, you will receive a "My First LEGO Set" bucket (6161) valued at $14.99. This could pose problems online if your cart exceeds $50 as double promotions in previous weeks have kept the magnet from being added to your cart.
