Anyone interested in a sale of the top of the line Ninjago set? It's only £48.99 or $76 USD. That's about 37% off so it'll probably be the best deal for Xmas.

Very tempting. I think I will pull the trigger on this. I remember getting the fire temple a while back for a similar deal.

Which is the better shipping from the UK, standard or global priority? These are big sets in a big box. I've seen how bad the boxes are domestically, shudder to think what kind of handling they have coming from the UK.

Didn't matter, decided on standard and they were sold out.

I think I picked the cheap one (standard?) when I got the fire temple and everything came in great condition. I hope this set comes in the same condition. Once this deal gets posted on the big lego websites, I believe this will sell out quickly.

I'm glad a found this thread but man...I feel like there hasn't been any good legos around in last 10 years since i was a kid...the lotr helms deep is the first good action set i seen in a long time. I miss the old catle ages sets and mellenium falcon sw era. I thought the ancient ninja/samurai sets were way better than this ninjago stuff. When I first started seeing bionical is when i lost interest since it didnt feel like traditional legos.....is it just me?

Funny you say they haven't made good sets in the last 10 years because excet for Star Wars the sets from 1999-2004 were such shit that the company was thinking about selling themselves to other toy makers.

Lego makes a lot of crap but there is good left in the company. Plus you missed out on two very well receive Castle themes.

Is that a decent price on Helm's Deep at TRU? I like that one quite a bit so I may pick it up.

I know I missed a coupon from yoyo.com a few weeks back for cheaper, but still.

I was doing something similar earlier this week (not legos, but other toys and cloths). Try asking the manager of the store if they can help you out on the price. I had good luck getting 30-50% markdowns on the stuff I was buying. I can't remember if Kohls sells legos, but they gave some good discounts!

That is one weak manager.

I have worked different retail jobs all my life and I have never had a manager give random discounts on new products. Clearance stuff and displays, sure, but if you came up to me asking to get a manager to lower the price I would tell you point blank not to waste my time or theirs. If you can't afford the price on the box then don't buy it, it's just a useless toy.

I actually find this somewhat offensive because at Lowes most of our hours were based on sales, if we started giving everything away for 50% because a costumer asks for it I'd be out of a job.

my kohls does not sell lego. You could also try places that specialize in overstock or discount, Marshals, TJ Max or whatever you have in your area. I haven't been to these stores this season but last year TJ Max had a lot of older lego sets they had obviously gotten from other stores.

Not bad on the TRU exclusives, I guess. I was looking over their deal this week with $25 off any $100 or more Lego purchase, but the markup makes it a lousy deal. Anyone know if any of their doorbuster coupons will work with the $25 off $100 though? There's a coupon for an extra 25% off doorbusters, extra 20% off 2 day super saver items, and some sort of $10 and $5 power pass savings on 'specially marked items'. I'd love to double or triple dip...

Palpatine's arrest is tempting. The set is kinda meh, but the 6 minifigures make up for it. They should have included Yoda too. Still a bit pricey just for that though.

Was just at tru last night and this set was selling at $110... that's $20 above retail. Feel sorry for those parents who don't shop around and pay tru's markup.

Perhaps it wasn't clear from my post that I was shopping for gifts for children in a battered women's shelter and asked the manager if they would be willing to help out in stretching the money I was donating... I wasn't asking for a discount because I "can't afford the price on the box."

Honestly I think all the coupons you mentioned wont' work on Legos. TRU put specialty marked items all over the place, so I'm guessing only a handful of overpriced crap is the only stuff those coupons would work on.

I'm going tomorrow... but I'm not having high hopes.

oh god, horrid experience at TRU... I'm used to some of their BS , but this was just nuts.

Picked up:

2x 70700
1x 70701
1x 70702
1x 79100

With their 20 off 100, and my 20 groupon, it should have came to 65ish? But wait... every set was even more higher than marked and they didn't have any shelf tags for the new prices.

70700 Lego(11.99) TRU(15.99 but shelf read 14.99)
70701 Lego(19.99) TRU(24.99 but shelf read 21.99)
70702 Lego(29.99) TRU(37.99 but shelf read 34.99)
79100 Lego(11.99) TRU(17.99 but shelf read 14.99)

TRU's inability to mark their own uppage was another $10 more.

And every set they had to correct, it screwed with the 20 off 100. At first they read it as 89, which was probably right but not as what the shelf price stated, so they reworked the numbers and then said 92, and I told them that wasn't right either, and then they came back at 97!?! which was higher than the first one.

so what they finally just did was change the biggest set 20 off.

I don't even know if they'll be fixing their own tags, because hardly anything was right in that purchase. I was scarred at the Hobbit prices too, I think some sets were up at least $14.

Oh I think they had 70704, which is 79.99, and had it at 104.99.... $25 more... outrageous.

There is a great article in which Lego Friends is reinforcing female stereotypes of how they only care about looks because Lego make a salon.

http://abcnews.go.co...inist-critique/

Looking at the line... There are cafe, salon, camper, boat, sand castles, a tree house, cars, horse riding, music, designer, and a workshop!

We all knew this when the first article on this insane "news" came out. But now we have proof about this being made up, sales for girls is up 300%, from 9% of sales to 27%!
