LEGO Store Rockefeller Center Sale

I stopped by the LEGO Store in Rockefeller Center twice this week, and found some great deals – 75% of some sets. Included is the Venator-class Republic Attack Cruiser set #8039 for $65. This is half off, but still a good find. At 75% was Home One Mon Calamari Star Cruiser set #7754 for a mere $35! Also, Midi Scale Star Destroyers were $13 and change:

In all, some great deals, and proof that LEGO is still getting shipments of sale items. My visits were two days apart, and they had MORE sale merchandise the second time I went.

Mispriced LEGO at Target

My local Target is finally recovering from the holiday season, and is beginning to setup their 2011 aisles, starting with the LEGO aisle. It was shiny and clean, and in a new place than it was just a week ago. In checking out the new sets, I found two pleasant surprises: mispriced sets!

The first is LEGO City Corner set 7641, marked $14.98 instead of $59.99:

I grabbed the last of the City Corner sets. There weren’t any available at Targets in a wide radius from where I live, but I know they had the same pricing.

The LEGO Ninjago Spinjitzu Dogo set 2504 was also mispriced at a 20% discount, and with the wrong label:

I picked up one of these as well, even though I still think it’s overpriced at $40.

Here’s a look at the rest of the 2011 LEGO aisle at Target:

Today’s LEGO Haul: Technic 8258 Crane Truck

Stopped by another LEGO Store today, and was surprised to find the Technic 8258 Crane Truck at half price. They had two, and I bought both of them, along with another Home One set 7754 and the Han Solo magnet set at half price too:

This LEGO Store is pretty small:

Their 50% off pile has dwindled, but I was surprised to see so many Midi Star Destroyers in stock:

They had a full display of Ninjago sets, which I saw plenty of parents/kids buying:

Fun With LEGO Toy Story Green Army Men 7595

I’ve wanted this set for awhile, and as I mentioned that LEGO sets seem to come in pairs, I got two of them today. Found a great deal and got them at more than 50% off. It’s the LEGO Toy Story Army Men on Patrol set #7595. A nice pack of 4 minifigs and a green jeep.

Here are the sets:

Mmmm, lots of green pieces:

It ain’t easy being green:

Or maybe Ron Weasley drank a bad potion:

Regardless, a great set, with some fun minifig parts and loads of green for your collection.

Great LEGO Deals Seem to Come in Pairs

I’m noticing a trend in my spending habits, and in the deals that retailers are offering for LEGO products. Again and again, I am finding it to be worthwhile to purchase two of the same set in order to take maximum advantage of sales. The photo below is of some recent purchases, and each came from a different retailer. The discounts were incredibly good, otherwise I would never buy this much LEGO in such a short time frame, and purchase duplicates of sets. For each, I chose sets that I really liked the minifigs or parts so I can expand my collection.
