LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary (71042) Amazon Sale


The LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary (71042) is currently on sale over on Amazon for $149.99 which is 25% off the regular price of $199.99. This is probably the last time that you’ll see this set at this low of a price because from what I’m hearing, it’ll be retiring soon. This is also the last time that you’ll find a Johnny Depp Jack Sparrow minifigure for a set that is still available at retail because there are reports that Disney might be rebooting the franchise without Depp at the helm. Even if that report isn’t true, it sounds like he is done with the character.

Note that this set is sold by Amazon and not a third-party seller. Shipping is stated that will be within 1-3 months but they’ll usually ship it before then.

Five Days Left on LEGO FORMA Indiegogo Campaign


We are down to the last five days for the LEGO FORMA Indiegogo campaign and there is only a small amount left available for each perk option. The best deal is the LEGO FORMA Super Box and as of this writing, there’s only 160 left for the US and 45 for the UK. As for the individual models, there’s only a handful left for each of those and they’ll surely go out of stock before the campaign is over. I’ll do another reminder on the last day as there will certainly be a rush of supporters as it usually is with crowdfunding campaigns.

Geoffrey’s Toy Box to be in Kroger Stores


Last month, it was revealed that Toys R Us was rebranded as Geoffrey’s Toy Box. It is basically a store-in-a-store concept and the first stores will be in a large Midwest retailer. My original guess was Meijer but it was announced that Kroger will be store that will have the first Geoffrey’s Toy Box. Starting this month, Kroger supermarkets will start to get displays with the Geoffrey branding and with it are a small selection of toys. There are currently no big brands on the portfolio including LEGO but we’ll see if this concept will eventually bring the bigger brands to the stores.
