From time to time, Amazon throws out a crazy discount. I have no idea if this is a price match, or just a strange one, but it is 33% off which is pretty darn good for Star Wars.

7.5 cents a part for a nice SW LEGO set, what more do you want? :)

    Price match to toys r us. It won't likely last long as the toys r us offer is expiring soon (I think).

    You're right, expired now... :(

    The AT TE now has hit the sale price of 59.99 a few times now I believe. So I'm guessing it will be back there again a few times before the end of it.
    Not convinced that it will not go lower than this though.

    $49.56 at Amazon.com is the lowest I've seen it.

    We are unlikely to see the prices again that we saw the first week of December, at least until this coming Christmas. The deals were fast and furious that week, more than half of all LEGO was more than 30% off with some new sets including Star Wars set nearly 50% off (Jabba's Sail Barge was 47% off for a day).

    That being said, those prices then don't help someone now who wants it, $59.99 is a good price today, in January, for this set.

    Might it get back down to $49? Maybe, but you might be waiting until next Christmas to save $10, and it might never do it. It also might well go out of stock or retire first. You never know. :)

    I find it interesting how perceptions change. Amazon puts a good Star Wars set on sale for 33% off RRP and the comments are "gee, this was cheaper last year".

    For Pete's sake, it is 1/3 off RRP for a Star Wars set with free shipping from a retailer with great customer service.

    Really, what more does everyone want? FREE LEGO? :)

    ^^ Sorry that I don't get excited at a set that is a) kinda ugly imho and b) not iconic - seriously, I couldn't even say which movie this was in and I've seen them all more than I care to admit.

    Show me 33% off #10240, then I'll get excited.

    ^I'd be happy with 15% off UCS R2-D2.

    I'll get excited when the new AT-AT is 30% off. Like Tensor said this is an ugly set. I had it in my cart when it was $50 last year and didn't feel compelled to buy it.

    It may not be iconic, but its still easily recognizable. And it is quite improved from older versions imo.

    Even if you don't like the set, $60 for roughly 800 parts and 5 minifigs (4 of which are exclusive) Just the clone commander alone is like $10 in bricklink! All I see here is a great deal! :o)

    My son has been introduced to Star Wars through the "The Clone Wars" series, so the gunship and the AT-TE are his favorite vehicles. I don't like it, but that's the way it is. I was almost obligated to get him an AT-TE at some point.

    When the new Star Destroyer and AT-ATs hit 30% off, I'll be very excited.

    SO wish I hadn't missed this. My kids loved Clone Wars more than anything else, but are psyched about Rebels a LOT! Can't wait to see these sets come out!
