I always thought those ghost guys got off too easy though. They should have been dispatched to the Black Gate before fading into the breeze. Slackers...

Totally agree. Like they couldn't have been convinced that it was all one big war?!

They would have been all "Release us"

And I'd have been all "You ain't done yet, go knock down that giant eyeball and we'll talk"

I can get a set shipped to my door for $80. Only 20% off so its not amazing by any means but i havent really seen great deals on this set.

 

Should i wait for better discounts for jump at 20%

 

Whats the cheapest youve seen this set for recently?

I bought two at 80. A couple of people got them for $70 at target, but I really like the set so I wanted one as quick as possible. I would jump again at 80

A lot of folks got these for 29.98 on clearance at Target.  Granted, that's just silly, but anything 80 and lower seems like a pretty good bang for your buck.

I lucked out on a double coupon deal at yoyo.com and got 2 for $60 each.  I dont expect to find that again anytime soon though.

 

thats where i was planning to buy, yoyo.com usually has online coupon codes for around 20% off, free shipping, no tax.

 

Prob just buy one for myself at $80 and hold out for better prices for investment.

I personally love the set. I think it's worth the 100.00 if you are just going to buy 1 for yourself. Anything under 100.00 is great, in my opinion, for investing purposes.

All I found was these 14 decorated shields in the set.

I don't know what the listing is going on about with regular shields as there aren't any.

Its definitely wrong - there is one actual minifigure shield maybe?

 

anyone buying these - don't settle for 80$ anymore to build - look for 70$ or below. I have bought at least 10 of these for 70$ or below - 4 below 60$

 

It is an AWESOME set. I am actually thinking about building more than one and having an all out battle. Its frickin HUGE.

This is a great set, and definitely one to load up on before retirement, but it is still pretty new.  I would recommend holding off on buying these for a while, regardless of the price.  That is gonna be money tied up for a long time.  Ok, if you actually find it for $29.99, then you will obviously want to jump on that.  Otherwise, wait.

Here is something I did not even know. The Dead Soldier Ghosts have glow-in-the-dark heads! Neato. :D

Too bad their torsos do not have certain details glowing as well.

Tolkien related sets may be popular here but they are not big sellers with the wider public.

yeah, starwars is still the top theme amount children and teens, which is where the majority of sales come from for LEGO.

Are these EOL? I wanted one to build but I thought I had more time. Saw one at clearance at 85. Should I take it? Or am I just paranoid?

It just came out this summer. Still plenty of time to grab them later.

One of my local Targets has this one for 15% off, but another already has it for 30%.  They'll probably do a clearance markdown again next Thursday (the 9th), or possibly the week after that (the 16th), and that 15 or 30% discount gets bumped to 30 or 50%.  There are several just sitting around in my stores, even at 30% off (which I don't understand, as this set is super awesome);  I feel like it's safe to wait for a 50% on this one.
