Our good buddy CJ from IHN Radio writes in with the heads up for all Star Wars collectors...

"I thought you'd wanna mention this asap for people to take advantage of the deal. The TRU Exclusive EU wave finally slammed into Columbus, OH this morning. I found 3 cases worth, and half of a fourth on the pegs. The figs are also still on the buy one, get one 50% off sale as well. Well, the even better part is this: The figs are (for today and tomorrow only) list price at $4.99! When ringing up the figs, the system actually gives you a better deal, combining both deals and giving you two figs for less than the price of one. I ended up getting the entire EU wave, as well as doubles of the two troopers, for a mere $26.60!

The way this happens is thus: The starting price for these figs is $7.49 at TRU. What becomes a $4.99 figure is actually a way the computer reads a $2.50 price decrease at register. However, the price is taking the buy one, get one half off first. This makes the first fig $7.49, the second $3.75. Then, each has the price reduced further at purchase. This makes the first one $4.99, but makes the second figure $1.24.

That's $6.65 for two figs."


Wow that's quite a steal! Thanks for the heads up CJ!

The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
