Oooooh - hello Lego.com...

Imperial Shuttle down to $399
SSD down to $639

Thats 20% off - pretty much the discount TW etc give on their sale days - and free shipping, and a chrome protocol droid.

Time to talk nice to the wifey.....

I think so. I did one order of $360 and one of $370.
Each order has a droid.

Decided against getting the SSD - figure that 20% off is not really enough incentive, so will get one when they land in NZ and go on Labour day etc sale. I did however, order a whole heap of PAB parts - especially those that are cheaper than BL such as technic beams and wedge bricks. They're now even cheaper with the free postage  :sweet:

The protocol droid and the R2 poster / Mini TIE came up on the receipt too. Sweet!

Conversely, I don't think they'll do multiple droids for orders more than double the droid value, so to get the most droids you'll need to split up your orders into as many "droid values" as you can.

I would say $25 - but it depends on how many people get the droids and how many are leaked onto the secondary market. I will be wanting a few for my collection :)

On TM the ARF Trooper last year was going between $35-$50 even for $1 no reserve auctions, if I correctly remember.  The international prices are getting lower too, in April you could only find them for $60-90 USD...

Quick lunchtime perusal turned up a few deals. Warehouse has the T-6 Jedi Shuttle and General Grievous' Starfighter on clearance for $90 each, and the plastic A4 4-drawer storage units for $15. Toyworld has the Atlantis Portal down to $70 from $200, and Kingdom's Mill Village Raid at $100. The latter are probably local specials though.

Ohh interesting! Cheers for the heads up. Its also interesting to notice that they're advertising the new Star Wars Gungan Sub - I wonder what other new stock they have in? Might have to have a look  :classic:

Farmers has got quite a few sets on discount too - many the same as the WH. Battle of Naboo, the Bounty Hunter Gunship and the Creator lighthouse are half price amongst other things.

I picked up the 7930 Gunship from the WH last night. Was $50 despite being advertised at $60. Quite a cool little ship with its funky colourways and clever mechanics. Especially enjoyable if you love applying large stickers to curved surfaces like I don't.

Went to warehouse today and picked up the bounty hunter assault gunship for $49. Hoped to get a 10% discount with their we'll beat it by 10%, as Farmers also had the gunship for $49.99. But no, they had already beaten it by $0.99, so no discount. :hmpf_bad:  :laugh:
Lots of new sets, especially SW!! I haven't seen many but was surprised to see all these new sets! Are you liking the new Jabba's palace Legoman? I thought, oooh thats gonna be a must for him when I saw it. :laugh:
Lots of sets to get, will have to save up some cash!

Haha, Well, initially I was really keen for the set, but after seeing it better I think I'll leave it. I seem to find myself venturing away from buying so many system scale playsets and such these days. I still need to catch up on a couple of UCSs' and such for now  :classic:
