Alien Town by BFLV

This simple vignette caught my attention.  I like the bright colors that pop and use of simple paper background for effect.  Plus I like the aliens from Toy Story 3 of course.

TRU offer for Toy Story 3 Garbage Truck Getaway

I bought a new set today, it’s the Toy Story 3 Garbage Truck Getaway (7599) exclusive to Toysrus in Singapore.  While it’s at a so-called ‘discount’ of S$89.90, it’s actually selling for US$49.99 so it still more expensive than USA, as usual… (grumble grumble…)

If you are curious, usual price is S$119.90.  

I guess if you are not willing to wait and see if better deals come along, this is as good as it gets (or unless you have a trip to the USA). 

One more thing, the Western Train Chase (7597) sets have arrived in Singapore retailing at S$189.90 (saw it at Bricksworld Takashimaya but not in Metro, Toysrus or Takashimaya toys department yet).  The pig looks great and so does the T-Rex and train, but  think I’ll wait for a sale before buying.  It’s only US$79.99 in the USA…

 

As usual, pics link to Brickset for details and reference.

USA Discounts on SW and Toy Story 3 Sets

Sigh, I wished I started collecting Lego when I was in the USA… apart from not having one or two advent calendars, I think the USA is the best place to be for an AFOL. Prices are cheap, they have Legoshop.com, prices are cheap, they have Lego stores that have pick-a-brick, prices are cheap, they get sets ahead of other countries, prices are cheap… you get the idea…

Case in point: Toysrus US is now having 25% off new Toy Story 3 and all Prince of Persia sets and free shipping on purchases over US$100… there is more… shop.lego.com is having discount on several Star Wars sets too…

Unfortunately, still not worth the effort to buy in US and then ship over to SG… so…

Anyways, prices below for easy reference, and pics are links to the sites.  Grab them before they are all gone!
