     I think this is in response to Toys "R" Us this counting every regular price item by 15%. Kind of funny because this seems to be Toys "R" Us his response to Amazon prime day.  Don't forget if you order it from Toys "R" Us you get a free Bionicle set as well.

    Noticed that all 2016 Technic sets at Amazon are 20% off or better.  This may be the best deal available for some time since Amazon SARL stopped shipping Lego to the USA.

    Also, #60050 Train Station is 37% off.  That's the lowest price ever according to CCC.

    As always, use the links from the Brickset home page.

    The UCS Tie Fighter is currently 76% off, priced at $48.94. Unbelievable deal I think:

    Well i was frustrated Walmart canceled my $139 one because they ran out but now I am overjoyed that happened. Assuming this one ships.
  • RakulRakul USAMember Posts: 176
    Hopefully will find out soon!

    Looks like there is a hard limit of 1.  Otherwise I would stock up just for the parts alone!

    tempting but i plan on buying a bunch of stuff next month at the lego store

    Thanks for letting us know, we ordered one for the parts only.  We are prime members too, mostly for the video service.  The deal was too tempting.  This is less than half of the prime day deal, right?  
  • CircleKCircleK U.S. - Columbus, OhioMember Posts: 1,055
    Whoa. That is way too good to pass up. I wouldn't have bought this one even at the $100 mark, but for less than $50 I just couldn't resist. Knowing you paid less than the price of a system scale tie will just make the build so much sweeter.

    ^Yeah.  Prime Day price was $125.99. (Screenshot)

    And, thanks to chertik for the alert. I ordered one for parts.

    I'm seeing it from a third party now for $24.74 + $20.14 delivery. Craziness.
  • busumoe1busumoe1 Member Posts: 194
    I have seen amazon price dropped to match third party sellers before.  I do not know how it works but I'm going to assume it's some algorithm gone wrong on both ends.
  • brickupdatebrickupdate Member Posts: 1,020
    Agreed. I can't order it from the third party sellers. 
  • YodaliciousYodalicious DagobahMember Posts: 1,366
    Unfortunately, it looks like the Amazon ones are gone. It's all third party now.

  • busumoe1busumoe1 Member Posts: 194
    I've been burned by 3rd-party sellers before (drop ship scam), so I'd not recommend others doing it.

    ^ I typically only buy from them when it's fulfilled by Amazon.

    The lowest price currently fulfilled by Amazon is $165.00.

    Thanks so much, buddy! If you ever feel the desire to stop by my Bricklink store (Set_You_Up), I will return the favor!
  • richlrichl NYCMember Posts: 244
    Pah. Back up to $178. Missed it again!
  • RakulRakul USAMember Posts: 176
    Mine just changed to preparing for shipment so hopefully this means they won't get canceled.  Fingers crossed!
  • chertikchertik Member Posts: 43
    Well, I just checked and my order was mysteriously cancelled, with no explanation whatsoever. Sorry guys, I guess it was just too good to be true. Pretty shady thing for Amazon to do. I wrote them an angry email, but I don't have any high hopes..
  • busumoe1busumoe1 Member Posts: 194
    My order has disappeared, too.  I should have paid extra for the next day shipping...
  • samiam391samiam391 A Log Cabin in KY, United StatesMember Posts: 4,251
    Mine, strangely (since I ordered it towards the end of the live deal), was just marked as shipped with a tracking number.

    I'll keep you all updated on whether or not it actually arrives.

    I'm sad to report that this just happened to me as well.  For what it's worth, I did place my order at the tail end so maybe there is still hope for the rest of you.  Good luck!
  • rd1899rd1899 U.S.A.Member Posts: 141
    Another canceled order, here.
  • MooreFXMooreFX CaliforniaMember Posts: 71
    Our order vanished too.  We ordered 60118 on the same order, which my son has been wanting.  We didn't really want the tie fighter, only the parts, so not too disappointed.  Sorry to everyone who really wanted this set.  My son is looking forward to the garbage truck which I wouldn't have ordered otherwise, so he is still happy :)
  • dougtsdougts Oregon, USAMember Posts: 4,123
    my order also disappeared.  well, actually, the order shipped since I had another item in it, but the TIE was mysteriously gone.  no email, no nothing.  clearly, this price was a mistake that they tried hard to erase
  • chertikchertik Member Posts: 43
    One more update. I called Amazon's customer service department and complained. The person issued me a $30 credit towards a future purchase, and said that if they ever get the Tie Fighter back in stock I can call and have them match the price to today's cancelled order. So.. better than nothing? :)

    Not bad! No older than the tie is I would certainly think they will be getting it back in stock at some point. If that does happen then you just scored a tie for < $20 bucks!

    It may be a stinker as far as sales are concerned - I have no idea, but I just can't see them retiring it so soon. My guess is it will be back.

  • SprinkleOtterSprinkleOtter Member Posts: 2,731
    The good news is Amazon never has to go to the doctor for a Colonoscopy. Their head is so far up their a## they can check themselves...

    Here's a tip for next time an unbelievable sale happens- go to the nearest store than price matches with Amazon, and buy it from them. Heck, do this with everything. Do you really want to put up with a seller that will screw you over whenever they wish?
  • jagdjhjagdjh Member Posts: 95
    I also ordered and also got cancelled with no email or explanation. I'm on hold now waiting to speak with a customer service manager since the first person is telling me that my order was cancelled because the bank didn't authorize the transaction. NOW I'm mad....
  • RakulRakul USAMember Posts: 176
    Yeah they told me I canceled the order. On hold for a supervisor right now to since they called me.
  • yg77yg77 Member Posts: 32
    I had my order cancelled as well.  I called and referened chertik's post above to the sales rep. He matched the $30 promo but told me he couldnt guarantee that anyone would price match the set to today's price...better than nothing I guess. This is the second time I have gotten screwed for this set- first on the lightning deal when I was unable to checkout, and now this. I'll definitely be calling back.

    Ever since Amazon started charging tax in my state, I do that whenever I can get an added benefit at a B&M store (i.e. Target Red Card 5%, TRU or Best Buy points, etc.).  The only problem is that sets like the UCS TIE aren't typically carried in stores by me so sometimes, Amazon is the only choice.  Plus, with Amazon's propensity to change prices every 27 minutes, that unbelievable sale price may longer be valid by the time I can get to a B&M store to PM, especially the ones that insist on looking up the prices themselves.
  • SprinkleOtterSprinkleOtter Member Posts: 2,731
    ^ Order online, and price match online.
  • chertikchertik Member Posts: 43
    I saw an email from Amazon in my inbox this morning, explaining why they cancelled my order:

    Hello,

    We're contacting you about order [order #]. We recently discovered an error that caused the following item(s) to be displayed at an incorrect price:

    LEGO Star Wars 75095 Tie Fighter Building Kit

    In this case, we're unable to offer this item for the incorrectly posted price. Therefore, we've cancelled your order for this item, and you haven't been charged.

    At any given time, despite our best efforts, a small number of the millions of items on our site may be mispriced. We're very sorry for any disappointment this may cause. 

    We value your business and hope to see you again soon.

    Sincerely,

    Customer Service
    Amazon.com

    I'm still going to call them whenever I see the Tie Fighter back in stock, and demand they match the price. I can be very persuasive :P

    To each their own, but I'm not going to complain about it. We all know that was a little too good to be true. The only thing that put me off was the canceled order without any notification. I also received a message this morning informing me of what happened though.  And with that, all is right in my world.
