@mr_benn, I think they had 10% off the DS earlier this year too.
Speaking of discounts - if LEGO does discount the Death Star itself, would Amazon match? Or does Amazon only match Walmart, Target, etc?
Personally I hope either 7879 Hoth Echo Base or 7962 Anakin Skywalker and Sebulba's Podracers go on sale, but I doubt it since they were released not even a year ago :(.
IMO there might be a good saving on Lukes Landspeeder, must be EOL soon! if so will try bag a couple as well, is nice that George Lucas planned star wars so soon after pay day!
Exclusive lego star wars offers available on the Australia lego site on the 4th-5th May.
Must spend £50 on SW to get TC-14.
£50 spend on anything gets you free shipping
Any SW spend of any size gets you a UCS R2D2 poster and polybag tie fighter.
All of the above are per order basis, so multiple qualifying orders get multiple freebies.
No mention of double VIP points, but it says some SW sets will be on sale (doesn't tell you what they will be).
and I REALLY doubt they are going to put the SDD specifically on sale, it just came out.. It makes more sense to discount the DS.. especially if they are going to be EOLing it (and in any case Im guessing it will be EOL before SSD)
Would a good discount be nice? Sure... but if it is 25% off, they'll be gone in an hour (or less).
Who's buying the DS right now? Genuine builders/players or speculators? Wonder what the ratio is?
If it is discounted this week I will have to pick it up. If it's not, I'll be grabbing the IS (and FB) and I can hold off until Christmas for the DS....Hopefully.
Expensive stuff getting up to date w/ all these bigger sets having just come out of the dark ages.
I'm also considering getting the Grand Emporium while the hulk figure is being offered. Do anyone know if they'll do discounts during this time as well?
- Imperial Shuttle, May 4
- Fire Brigade, May 15/16
- Death Star, Thanksgiving '12 (I can move on it earlier if I know it's going to be gone, but ideally I would buy this for under the Christmas tree)
Pet Shop (Summer)
Grand Emporium (Summer)
The othe possibility is the Imperial Shuttle.... That has not been out as long as the DS, but Im wondering if it is as popular as the DS in terms of sales right now.. Im guessing yes as it is cheaper.
SSD was overpriced when released, had they put it out at $299 I think they would have had a hit on their hands. As it was, I didn't buy it until I got it for 20% from Amazon.
IS for 20% however, is a good deal, that set is more impressive than the box or the part count give it credit, to this day, it is what guests who come over walk towards, they all seem to know what it is, even if they don't know the name, "oh, that is that Star Wars shuttle, isn't it?".
The question is, is IS going out or not? :)
If [email protected] go 20%, + VIP pts, + TC-14 it still doesn't cut it.
So I'm sticking with the SSD - haven't seen any chance to pick it up on offer, and unless they clearance it at some point (which is possible but not now) this seems like a decent price at which to pick one up. I also seem to have accrued about £200 of VIP points, so at 20% off I can probably get one by shelling out less than £100! Sweet.
What do you reckon for the pricing once TCD-14 is in wider circulation? You will probably be able to ebay one for £15 say, which equates to the 30% DDDT savings rather than spending £50 at RRPs.
