What is up with this? $11.99? These are $9.99 at LEGO Shop @ Home.
This isn't the first time either...http://www.amazon.com/LEGO-City-Police-ATV-60006/dp/B00A88E8NE/
This is $6.99 at LEGO [email protected]
, $8.99 at Amazon. There are other examples as well.
Did Amazon finally go down the dark path of Toys R Us?
I get that shipping costs have to be eaten by Amazon, a PRIME customer can buy those 2 items and get "free" 2 day shipping, which of course isn't free, but Amazon already has an answer to this:http://www.amazon.com/LEGO-Bricks-more-Building-Plate/dp/B002RL7VNY/
The Add-On program allows them to sell such items that make no sense otherwise. This is priced right, $4.99 for a blue baseplate (ok, it seems expensive to me, but it is the same price as LEGO, so they aren't marking it over retail).
In return, you can't *just* buy the baseplate, you have to buy $25 worth of items, even if you are PRIME, to get it shipped to you. This is being done to cut their shipping costs, and it is understandable.
So what is up with the $11.99 for the planet sets and $8.99 for the small box sets that should be $6.99?
