    Thanks - I missed that. Don't frequent here quite as much as I used too.

    ^ as has been discussed around here over the past few weeks, that policy apparently got quietly rolled back. 

    Still seems pretty limited, compared to pre-ban, but hey, it's better than nothing.
    It feels like Lego is testing the waters by allowing limited discounting in small bursts with a couple of sets at a time. I don't think we'll see anything like pre-2013 this Christmas but expect more discounting ahead.

    What exclusives have been discounted in the US other than the UCS TIE fighter and the Mixer? My guess would be exceptions were made for those two because of sales numbers...neither feel like they would be big sellers and retailers may have pushed for the ability to move out stock, IMHO.

    Any guesses on what other sets might land on a similar list?

    Kwik-E-Mart was 25% off at barnes and nobel a while back for a very short time.

    Batcave and Ewok Village were discounted at Target a few weeks back.

    Wal-Mart and Amazon had  Attack on Hoth for $218.74 a few weeks back.

    Amazon had Sandcrawler, UCS Tie, Attack on Hoth and Ewok Village discounted around the same period.

    September 3rd and 4th, 2016 were the biggest days.

    And then a few rare Targets had them 50% off right after that.  But I think those were pretty hard to come by.

    Just released #75155 Rebel U-Wing Fighter is also on sale at $68.00 (15% off). Of course, that's the Rogue one set I chose to buy from [email protected] this morning.

    Thanks as well!  Got my U-Wing (Capn's review sold me on it)!  

    AT-ST is already sold out...!

    Amazon currently has the Ewok Village, Sandcrawler and UCS TIE at 11% or 12% off. Better than double points.

    very tempting, but in a week where I already bought the US Capitol, the Disney castle, the U Wing, and the blue X-Wing, not sure I can justify spending even more. The Sandcrawler does sing to me, though...

    One of the optional builds is a nice lake townhouse (which Is why I bought it)

    It's one of those rare City sets that looks good enough to almost make me consider buying it.  But then I snap to my senses and think:  "What would I possibly do with a Lego Winnebago?"

    You don't have superheros and villains tearing up your city?  Winnebago is prime target for "HULK SMASH"  :)

    @erequena The piece count at that price is good, but I am not good at MOCing stuff (yeah, I'm bad), so I'm sure I'll end up with a horrible MOCed townhouse. 

    @mathew Maybe I'll do my own version of About Schmidt...

    Anyone think the City Square will keep going down from the current $117.99 price?

    I'm guessing that for a stand alone price (ie not bundled with other or duplicate sets) it may be at its bottom. Still a darn good price though. If I did not already have a couple Id buy them. Bundled together in Jet.com or yoyo.com deals in the past I think they got closer to 100 USD.
  • RakulRakul USAMember Posts: 176
    ^^ Another problem might be if it does drop lower I would imagine in very limited quantities and it will sell out fast.  In the end if you want the set and are willing to pay $118 it's not a bad price.

    ^ Interesting, it says "Ships from and sold by Amazon.com in easy-to-open packaging. Gift-wrap available." and "This item's packaging will indicate what is inside. To cover it, select Ship in Amazon box on the checkout page." I wonder if it means that they'll just ship it by slapping a label on the box. If you care about box condition, make sure to choose the option to ship it in a box.

    That's exactly what it means. I just saw the same on a soccer goal I ordered for my boys. Came with a label slapped on the regular box. No outside box.

    @thedingman5 thanks!
    Price matched at toys r us and used the gift cards from eBay earlier.  I also got the bricktober figures as a cherry on top.

    So I just ordered #21029 Buckingham Palace mentioned above, but now the page didn't say anything about the packaging, so I assume it's going to come in a shipping box like normal.

    At this point, I see they are sold by resellers/3rd party. I'd be careful that they did not 'fall off of a truck' somewhere or that the box is gutted of the set and replaced with dogfood.

    As seen on the front page, #41129 Friends Amusement Park Hot Dog Van is $19. Yeah, it is a Friends set, but I think it is a fun and unique looking set that can fit into City. Plus... sausages!

    ^ You can easily change the color scheme on a few parts and it fits in very well with the City line.  I turned mine into a food truck and took away the seating on the root with more curved tan pieces.
