We reviewed the three Technic sets released in the summer (42068 Airport Rescue Vehicle, 42069 Extreme Adventure and 42070 6x6 All Terrain Tow Truck) a few months ago and while we liked the sets we were not so impressed by their prices, particularly in the UK. The retail price of 42070 6x6 All Terrain Tow Truck, for example, is an eye-watering £219.99!

Clearly we are not alone in thinking that LEGO lost the plot a bit when setting the prices because all the major retailers have reduced them by around 30% so it's safe to assume that they were not selling at full price. 42070 6x6 All Terrain Tow Truck is currently available for a much more reasonable and realistic £139.99 from Amazon.co.uk, which is a 36% discount, and 42069 Extreme Adventure can be yours for £94.99, a 32% discount, also from Amazon.co.uk.

Don't forget you can view all the discounts on Technic sets on our shopping pages.

I think its possible theyve seen next years release schedule. Noticed power functions 2 is coming and are trying to offload stock before they get stuck with power functions 1 sets taking up Space? The market anticipation is probably dampening sales too.

I agree that this may be due to stock reducing tactics. As the year is coming to its end, the same is happening here in Turkey as well. Today I've had an email about 20% discount on all Lego Sets at a toy/book store. I agree with the comment above, and I also agree with Huw's opinion as TLG might not have gotten the desired attitude from sales of these sets.
I didn't even "think" about buying any of the mentioned sets before, but with 20% discount I am awfully thinking about buying 42069 Extreme Adventure Set at the moment...

Rather generous discounts are normal at this time of the year over here in Germany.
As a matter of fact, I bought 42069 just two days ago for 89.24 Euro, which seems to be quite a bargain for the amount of pieces and "stuff" you get.

extreme adventure is 130€ in France which is quite a great price per piece and airport rescue vehicle is pretty decently priced at 90€. I ordered extreme adventure on amazon for less than 85€, but have no idea when I'll get it.
