Update: All sold out now. For those living outside of Europe, we would recommend contacting John Lewis regarding their VAT/tax since its not being removed during the checkout process. Literally, you shouldn’t have to pay 16-17% tax on it (the tax is hidden in the price of the item).
If you are outside of the United Kingdom, no fear as these LEGO London Olympic minifigures are now available for direct international sale! They are sold by a Britain retailer known as John Lewis (similar to Sears/Macy’s) and the minifigures are also priced without markups at £1.99 (~$3.12 USD). Thanks to Adamson for the heads up.
Shipping is very heavy for international shipments. However, the good news is that its only a flat £25 charge (~$40 USD). This means that you can order as many minifigures as you like for the same shipping price. 20 minifigures would work out to be about $5/minifigure, 60 minifigures would work out to be $3.67/minifigure, 120 minifigures would work out to be $3.33/minifigure and so on.

Forum member purplepirate informs us that Yoyo.com currently has LEGO Star Wars Republic Frigate on sale for $83.96 (reg.$119.99). Savings works out to be 30% off. Don’t forget free shipping on orders above $49 as well.

For a limited time only, ToysRUs.com is offering big savings on ALL LEGO construction sets and board games. Their big savings literally means that ALL LEGO sets are back down to MSRP (with the exception of a few sets like polybags) as I don’t see any good deals. Its a shame that Palpatine’s Arrest MSRP is $89.99!
Don’t forget they also still got the free Ninjago Hidden Sword polybag with purchases above $20 as well.
From July 15-22, there is also an instore coupon where you can save up to 20% off. If the sets are on sale for MSRP, then the savings are not too bad (especially for new sets).
The LEGO Superheroes 30163 Thor and the Cosmic Cube polybag is now available for sale at Toys R Us United States. Price is $4.99. If you want Thor and don’t want to pay $49.99 for the Hulk Helicarrier set or $79.99 for Quinjet Aerial Battle, then $4.99 is not bad even with the $1 markup. Thanks to forum member starfire2 for the news.
