I ordered a Star Wars Magnet Set and a small Kingdoms set. Should I review the magnet set? It's only three minifigures (Boba Fett, Leia dressed like a woman of ill repute, and an Emperor's Guard)

Best deal I've snagged lately was a couple of months ago for the UCS Millenium Falcon (10179)
Bought it during LEGO S@H's "Star Wars sale" back in May...$680 CDN set for $170, plus two keychains for .61 each (Stormtrooper and Boba Fett). :lol:
Somebody obviously messed-up huge and listed the items for what they should have been DISCOUNTED. I really kicked myself for not buying two though (the max you could buy during the sale). The deal could have paid for itself via e-Bay.

Paid a dude over at FBTB for an Agents 8970 "Robo Attack" that he had picked up for me, then went over to B&N.com and bought Prince of Persia 7571 "Fight for the Dagger" using the 40% off coupon and added Prince of Persia 7569 "Desert Attack" to bring it back up above the free shipping threshold, since the discount would've caused me to have to pay shipping, thus reducing my savings. Yeah, that's how I justify buying two sets instead of just one. ;)

I did the same thing to use the Brickmaster coupon on LEGO.com when I ordered a $15 set.

I just realized that the guy found Robo Attack at a Barnes and Noble, so B&N go a lot of my money today (in a round-about way).

I bought 4956 Lego Creator home for 49.99$ shipped today on amazon :)
For a set that has been discontinued for a while I thought that MSPR was a good price :)

Knights Showdown, Prison Carriage Rescue, and Wreckage Road. Can't wait for the new World Racer to get here. Those are the best sets if you have 2 kids, they come with one for each.

Yes, I can do a review. It'll take some time to put together. The bags are not numbered like Lego City sets. :D

On what I got today. I got me some women!
