Tis the season to be a LEGO shopper, as with the Holidays coming soon, a number of LEGO sets on retailers have seen their prices discounted. And the favored theme line for those sale prices is LEGO Star Wars, which recently had its 2018 Advent Calendar (75213) discounted at Walmart. Next on the retail chain’s list of LEGO sets to be more affordable is something a bit older than the above, as in a LEGO set that came out last year. We’re talking about the LEGO Star Wars UCS Snowspeeder (75144), the Ultimate Collector Series set that came out before the meme-worthy release of the blockbuster UCS Millennium Falcon (75192).
Marked at $199.99 on Shop@Home, the LEGO Star Wars UCS Snowspeeder (75144) is being offered by Walmart for the lowered price of $169.99 as of this posting, with options for either free shipping or pickup. Thirty dollars off the tag is definitely a sweet deal.
It should be noted though that Amazon, which recently put a sale price on the LEGO Friends 2018 Advent Calendar (41353), is also offering similar discounts on the UCS Snowspeeder (75144). The difference is that Amazon’s offer is for the frustration-free packaging only (Standard is at $194.99 instead).
Anyway, that’s quite the price drop now for a LEGO Star Wars UCS set that’s about a year old now, and long overshadowed by the UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) to boot. Bargain hunters should visit Walmart to see if it’s enough to catch their fancy.
