Your Buying Strategy of the Day: Wednesday December 18th, 2013

I saw this deal posted a few days ago and I’m not sure how someone got the advanced notice, but that just lets me take care of this one early.

Today only (Wednesday the 18th), Toys R Us has 3 smaller sets ($12.99 MSRP) for $10 each. I suspect Amazon and potentially others will step in and match this sale, but this could be the only place to get these deals in-store, if that’s what you’re into. One of them has already been beat by Amazon!

Lone Ranger 79106 Cavalry Builder Set parts out for $22.58. That’s 2.26x the price you paid and much like the Clone Trooper pack from a few days ago, this gives you a good supply of Armyable minifigs. Once again, I don’t know if there will be any quantity restrictions in-store. They have been known to cap the amount you can buy at a sale price SOMETIMES. I wouldn’t go through with this unless you can get at least 10 of them. That’s a $100 investment which yields $225.80 in store inventory.

The other set is 76008 Iron Man vs. The Mandarin: Ultimate Showdown which parts out for $20.61. This is the lesser deal of the two but this is the only set that comes with the Iron Man Heart Breaker armor. That might be useful in high quantities.

This sale falls within the Spend $100, save $25 period but I doubt they count as they are not regularly priced. But who knows, maybe they will.

I’ll certainly be checking it out.

But since I’ve seen no official indication from TRU that this sale is happening, I just saw another sale which starts today and runs for 3 days. This one might have a little more substance to it. It’s a flat out 50% off 6 select sets. 1 Star Wars, 1 City, 1 Juniors, & 1 Brick Box. Those ones I’ve already ruled out. There is 1 Galaxy Squad and 1 Castle set that have got my attention.

70400 Forest Ambush http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=21098876&prodFindSrc=search&cp=
has an online price of $11.99 and a “regular” price of $14.99. Since this is in-store only, I’d bet that it would be 50% off of $14.99 ($7.49). That’s 37.5% off the MSRP of $11.99. The part out value is $19.90 which is 2.66x your cost.

70703 Star Slicer http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=17476026&prodFindSrc=search&cp=
has an online price of $39.99 and a “regular” price of $44.99. Since this is in-store only, I’d bet that it would be 50% off of $44.99 ($22.49). That’s 43.8% off the MSRP of $39.99. The part out value is $56.89 which is 2.53x your cost.

There’s no indication of a quantity limitation in-store, though that’s hard for them to enforce anyway.
