    The Halo fighter one looks cool though, I'd buy it just to have it


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,899 ✭✭✭ kollegeknight

    None in Drogheda.Must be a local thing!:(


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,044 ✭✭✭ skibum


    None in Bray or the branch off Henry street....


  • Registered Users Posts: 944 ✭✭✭ a5y


    Perhaps a dedicated BARGAIN ALERTS - LEGO stickied thread would be a nice thing to have?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,345 Dunjohn


    Maybe this one could just be renamed?

    Either way, I might be able to contribute.... Smyths has the Games set Orient Bazaar at €7.99, usual price €21.99 (they had it at €16.49 then made a bunch of games half price). As a built set it's not great but as a parts pack it's very exotic, with a full 4-part golden dome, sixty gold disks and a bunch of perfume accessories. Most of the microfigs could pass for babies.

    Also, check Argos.ie because they're getting rid of a lot of last year's stuff at hugely reduced prices, though most of it is out of stock by now (at least it is in Galway).

    WOW is all I can say, there are some seriously good bargains in Argos. I'm gutted I didn't know about this sooner, a few I'd really love at those prices are sold out in both Cork branches. They still have a couple of good ones.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,313 ✭✭✭ Ron DMC


    It's not on special offer or anything, but it's still a bargain because it's pure class.

    Lego compatible iPhone 4 case.

    Shame it's iPhone only. I'd love one for my SGS.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 22,852 ✭✭✭✭ Tallon


    I have a 3G.. Dam :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,710 ✭✭✭✭ Necronomicon


    I really really want one of those for my Desire :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,710 ✭✭✭✭ Necronomicon


    Amazon have 33% off a good few sets at the moment. The odd (great) thing is, the 'Super Saver Free Delivery' that is usually a UK-only offer is eligable on orders to Ireland too (it still says UK only but I can confirm I have availed of it as of today :)) so these prices are inclusive of delivery.

    The 2010 Harry Potter sets are down:

    4842: Hogwarts Castle: £69.01 (works out €81.85; the set retails here for €120, Argos had it for €135 when it came out).

    4738: Hagrid's Hut: £27.46 (€31.15; retails here for €49.99)

    4840: The Burrow: £41.53 (€45.98; retails at €74.99 here)

    4841: Hogwarts Express: £52.00 (€58.99; retails between €90-100 depending on where you go here).

    Away from HP, there's the City theme. See the full range here. For example:

    7939: Lego City Cargo Train: £87.10 (€98.81; retails here at €149.99)

    There's also 33% off the Star Wars line (see the full range here including:

    8097: Slave I £54.94 (€62.33; retails here at €90-100)

    8098: Clone Turbo Tank £69.01 (€78.29; retails at €115 here).

    Anyone in the market for a cheap train? There's 53% off the Toy Story 7597 Western Train Chase. It is £38.57 delivered, which works out at €43.75. Retails at around €100 here.

    I've got stuff from there before with the help of Super Saver delivery so it's a place I keep an eye on. Keep in mind you'll be charged a little more than the exchange rate suggests, as they need to add VAT shipping to Ireland (I queried them about that before) but it's only an extra couple of euro so still a good deal.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,710 ✭✭✭✭ Necronomicon


    Toy Story 3 'Trash Compactor Escape' is now less than half price at Argos.

    From 69.99 to 29.99.

    ^^^ Yep, I've been collecting. Though the Ninjago stuff that's around for most of the rest of the week doesn't interest me after a pretty strong start.

    While chasing the cheap computer stuff in the two Tesco stores in Naas, I found that the old Tesco had cheap lego,
    they are selling the Police lego bike for 2.50, the Police and robber ATM set for 4.50, the Police helicopter for 6.00 and two star wars sets for 6.00.

    They still have some bikes, robbers and star wars sets left as of 7:30 this AM.

    Argos have 3 for 2 on all toys, including Lego.


  • Registered Users Posts: 64 ✭✭✭ ATMAddict


    Not too sure if this is consider a Bargain, but the Tesco in Naas (old one) has the series 5 figures for 2.39. plenty in stock.

    Pity this isint in all Tesco's, was in Tesco's Wilton earlier and I didnt see any of these on sale.


  • Registered Users Posts: 64 ✭✭✭ ATMAddict


    Yeah, It seems to only be in the old Tesco in Naas, they are having some refurbishment work done in the shop, so could be related to the sell off of the lego and other stuff.
    I went in last night and bought two police bikes, I plan to make some GARDA decals for them over the weekend, I'll post some photos
