Wal-Mart America has rolled out a set of new pre-LEGO Black Friday deals. Prices are valid November 21-27. Seven LEGO sets will be discounted to $39 (reg.$49.99-$74.99).
Five of them would be considered “Black Friday LEGO prices” while two of them in the 22% off range would be factored as a regular LEGO sale. Great prices regardless though as some sets haven’t been discounted this much before including Friends Olivia’s House and Star Wars AT-AP Walker. In fact, this is probably a lot better than the “actual Black Friday deal” where they have some LEGO buckets discounted.
48% off – Olivia’s House $39 (reg.$74.99)
44% off – Ninjago Temple of Light $39 (reg.$69.99)
44% off – City Museum Break-In $39 (reg.$69.99)
35% off – City Helicopter Rescue Hospital Set $39 (reg.$59.99)
35% off – Star Wars AT-AP Walker $39 (reg.$59.99)
22% off – Friends Heartlake Highschool $39 (reg.$49.99)
22% off – Super Heroes Battle of Smallville $39 (reg.$49.99)
*Amazon.com may follow suit and price match on these sets as well.

After all the inconsistency with some stores selling the Rocket Raccoon for $4.99 and some stores not selling them till November 21/22, the flyer now has an official ad for the highly sought after LEGO Guardians of the Galaxy Super Heroes Rocket Raccoon minifigure 5002145 .
Spend $30 or more on LEGO Construction sets and you can get him free! This is similar to the Canadian promotion that happened a few weeks ago. Thanks to Nickdude15 for writing in and forum member StClair for the news.

If you live close to a LEGO Brand Retail Store, you may have received an invite to an exclusive LEGO VIP shopping event this Saturday. Congrats if you did receive an invite in the mail as they don’t send it to everyone. This pre-Black Friday shopping event is an early access to the promotion. You pretty much get to have first pick on the sets before the Brick Friday offers are available to the public.
Forum member ricefields has kindly gathered some information regarding the event after speaking with a LEGO Store Customer Service Representative.
