Free Star Wars Polybag with Qualifying Purchase at Toys R Us
Valid thru' Saturday 2/4, Toys R Us is offering a free Anakin's Pod Racer polybag (30057) with any total LEGO Star Wars construction set purchase of $20 or more. You can also currently buy these both in store and online for $4.99 at Toys R Us. There is a catch though. If you haven't yet noticed, February has arrived but Toys R Us continues to maintain their excessive holiday markups on most LEGO sets. Shining examples are the V-Wing, Ewok Attack and Battle for Geonosis at 40%, 33% and 25% over MSRP respectively. At this rate, you would save only a net $1 off MSRP if you used the two new battlepacks to reach the $20 threshold. But for those like me who can't resist a new polybag, your best bet will be to pick up the Droid Escape (9490) or Geonosian Cannon (9491) as they are only marked up 10%. Here's hoping Toys R Us will fix their pricing sometime soon.
