Cool. If you try buying one these packs in Italy, it usually costs 10 €uros more than it would cost buying the sets individually.  :thumbdown:

Check your local Target! I just got back from my Target (Fayetteville NY) with a Skeleton Tower Castle set for $12.48! It was the last one, and I saw the guy put the sticker on it while I was walking past the LEGO aisle, and checked it, and nearly peed my pants!  :laugh:  Apparently they had others on clearance, but I didn't see any. Definately the best Lego deal I've gotten, but wouldn'tve paid full price for the set.

Well the guy marked it at like noon, so I wouldn't be dashing out of bed. I think it was just a one time thing, I should have mentioned. There was only one left. I just put that there to let people know to keep their eye out...

Sorry if you woke up at 4:30 in the morning for nothing....

Got one!!  Took me 2 different Targets.  The sticker was actually marked $24.98, but I was gonna get it anyway as 50% off is still great.  As I had the cashier ring it up, the total came to $13.?? with tax!!!!  Awesome!

On another note, most SW Clone Wars are discounted - not a certain %, but most are $5.-$10. off.  The Stormtroopers and Rebel Scum packs are also $1.00 less.  Both end Sat 8th.

In Texas all H-E-Bs have all castle sets, select city sets and a few SW sets on sale.
I just built me an army by buying $85 worth of Crossbow Attack's and Final Joust's for $4 and $5 respectively.

So sad...

I also forgot to mention, the Target $5. off coupons are no longer accepted.

Apparently, someone had the idea to send them all over the internet to friends and strangers alike...

Danish supermarket chain Bilka has 40% off all Lego next week.
I just thought I would let my fellow danes know this, even though there isn't that many of us on here :classic:

I don't think this has been posted before but I've noticed that LS@H Europe has the 6211 Imperial star destroyer on sale. In Ireland its only euro83.99. In other euro countries the price is higher but still discounted. I've a recollection that this set was discounted earlier in the year also but i cannot recall if the new deal is any better.

And as flagged by Copmike, 9v curved rails, cross over tracks and 9v train motors are on sale but perhaps not to the extent that people might have expected.

Start checking those Wal-Marts!  With the X-Mas season coming fast (Halloween stuff has been out since early Aug...) the Lego sets will be going on sale.  I've already seen AT-TE's, a B-Wing, and others I can't remember, on the clearance racks.

Quick update--my local TRU (US) has a buy-two-get-one free this week--excluding Star Wars, Spongebob, and Indiana Jones.  I picked up a creator set, a Batman set, and got a castle set for free.

New York TRUs have the sale too. Ends on the 27th. Thanks for the tip Buckshot, picked up a bunch of Final Jousts.

I wish that Star Wars were included in the sale ...  :sceptic:

Yeah - mass hysteria over the 3-for-2 Stormtroops and Rebel Scum battle packs is just what TRU wants... :wink:

I actually found a Skeleton Prison Wagon(!), so I added in 2 Troll Assault Wagons!!
