LEGO |OT6| We Only Build in Black. And Sometimes Very Dark Grey.

Mine only has the shuttle launch, fire station, and a shitload of Minecraft nether stuff on clearance.
Tempted to find a store that has Airjitzu and pay over the phone for it. Half price is tempting to get a second one.

FYI, you may be able to get free shipping if you have a B&N membership. From a user on Brickpicker:

"...They do ship forfree if you have a membership, although you can't use your member discount. I have done this a few times w different stores."

Only if you order online. From the stores it isn't an issue, just pay a bit extra but still get the 10% off.
 
So here's the alleged list of 40% off sets during the May 4th sales. It's not in English but you get the idea:

29. April LEGO Star Wars Resistance X-Wing (75149) statt 89,99 Euro dann nur 53,99 Euro
30. April LEGO Star Wars Buildable Figure Scarif Trooper (75523) statt 24,99 Euro dann nur 14,99 EUR
01. Mai LEGO Star Wars AT-ST (75153) statt 49,99 Euro dann nur 29,99 Euro
02. Mai LEGO Star Wars Rebel Trooper Battle Pack (75164) statt 14,99 Euro dann nur 8,99 Euro
03. Mai LEGO Star Wars Luke’s Landspeeder (75173) statt 29,99 Euro dann nur 17,99 Euro
04. Mai LEGO Star Wars Millenium Falke (75105) statt 149,99 Euro dann nur 89,99 Euro
05. Mai LEGO Star Wars Buildable Figure K-2SO (75120) statt 24,99 Euro dann nur 14,99 Euro
06. Mai LEGO Star Wars Battle on Scarif (75171) statt 59,99 Euro dann nur 35,99 Euro
Was hoping for Attack on Hoth, but eh. I might get the Battle on Scarif for the kids. Maybe K2SO. Otherwise I have the rest basically.

Also find it interesting that the Falcon is included. Must be a new one incoming :)
 
Belgium is getting the short end of the stick again. 40% like the rest of Europe? Why, if you can have 30%? Never mind that we allready have 5 to 10 euro added to the usual prices.

Was hoping to grab something in this promo, like Scarif or even the X-Wing to have it next to Poe's black one. But I'm going to pass, even though it'll sting not getting the R2 polybag. I can get these sets on Amazon.de way cheaper, even without the promo's. -_-

It's sad that a lot of this stuff has been cheaper on Amazon for long periods of time. Lego's store sticking to MSRP means their sales are pretty disappointing I suppose.
 
Toys R Us has some stuff for 30% off today with code 30OFFLEGO. Not sure if there are any deals here as I'm not familiar with most of the sets. Some Nexo stuff involved.

Edit: someone tell me not to buy the Sith Inflitrator just for the minifigs.
Don't buy for the minifigs. Buy for the minifigs and the awesome build! I have a love hate relationship with the PT but love Maul, Qui-Gon, and this ship.

It's cheaper day one on Amazon, as MSRP in Germany is lower and they usually ship for free. I've been buying way less from S@H since lately prices got bumped so hard compared to Germany. If it isn't exclusive, there is no reason any more to get it from them. And that sucks, because I like the little gifts from time to time...

But now I'm just bumbed out because the promised 40% of is 30% over here, and I see no reason why at all. (seems like it's the same in France. Looked it up as the Lego Store in Lille is as far as the one in Antwerp form me)

Also, we barely get any discounts anyway. The 10% of retiring sets that is going on right now? Nada in Belgium. There must be a reason, but I don't see it.
 
Another nice eBay find. When bunny suit guy arrives I will only need about 10 series 1 CMF and Mr. Gold to complete the line. If anyone has S1 duplicates for trade let me know. And in case anyone was wondering, the $77 EV3 arrived--it works and is only missing a few of the technic parts.
 
Does anyone know if there will be a double/triple VIP for May 4th? Or if I should jump on a Death Star now? I would have to stop by to get something else for the R2, but it would be much cheaper.

That guy who I quoted was actually referring to ordering over the phone from the stores themselves; Here's the whole post:

"As stated earlier, they generally will not hold clearance, but I have purchased clearance over the phone from B&N stores. They do ship for free if you have a membership, although you can't use your member discount. I have done this a few times w different stores."

I haven't done this myself, so I can't confirm, but I thought I'd mention it just in case
 
Local BN searched to find a store that still had Temple of Airjitzu in, and only two stores still had them. One in NC, and another in Honolulu. Called up the NC store and it was still boxed up in their back room, so I paid over the phone and they are sending it to me in KY.

$100 and change after tax and shipping for a Temple of Airjitzu. Oh, happy day.

I didn't need a second one, but there are too many amazing parts in it to use for MOCs, and that price was killer.

did the NC store have 2 lol
 
Do we have a list of Star Wars sets on sale for may 4th if any? I want the R2 freebie but I'm cutting way back so I'm trying to figure out what to get. I want the Phantom for Thrawn and blind Kanan so thinking that and the Landspeeder unless something is on sale.
 
Oh wow...

$89.99 apparently??

TRU exclusive.
 
Are these minifig dome stands going to be a thing for every set going forward? It's not a complain, I hope it is just wondering why they aren't going with the standard CMF fig plates instead.

And i'm guessing Jango is going to be the major selling point of that set.

As far as I know, they aren't included, but are used to pose the minifigs so they can be photoshopped out for the official set images.

For some reason LEGO has gotten lazy at photoshopping them out however.

SNAP! That looks really nice.

20% off on the new Milano. The other two GotG v2 sets have been hovering around 20% off for several days now, first i've seen the Milano drop.

That new Jedi Starfighter w/ Hyperdrive is tops :) This will be the first Episode II set I've bought in a while
Jump on the Milano, people. The original is superior, but the new one has its merits.

Dang, that's not bad.
I was going to wait for the mini-Milano giveaway in May so I could get both of them then, but this isn't a bad deal.

Urgh, I may need to rethink my May LEGO buying choices if the Saturn V Ideas set ends up being in June after all (and will probably be +$100). I wanted both the mini-R2 and the mini-Milano, but there aren't any Star Wars sets I really wanted.

Might end up just waiting until May, spending the extra $10 on the Milano from the LEGO store so I can get the mini-Milano, and passing on the R2...
Or maybe I'll wait on the Milano for longer so can get the R2 (the Y-wing was tempting since you get extra VIP points) since it seems like it will be rarer (and I can probably just Bricklink or PAB the pieces for the mini-Milano).
