The Nachos Grande Blogroll Sold Me a LEGO Kit

Yesterday I was minding my own business, reading blogs, when I noticed a headline on the Nachos Grande blogroll. It was from a LEGO blog called From Bricks to Bothans and read:

Walmart Discounts 75052 Mos Eisley Cantina

Well, heck. How can you keep from clicking a link like that? The Cantina is a set I have been tracking pretty much since it released. It doesn't have a lot in the way of bricks, but it's got a huge number of minifigs for the price point and it would probably look really good next to my Jabba's Palace, Rancor Pit, and Jabba's Sail Barge kits. So I went to the site and read that Wal-Mart was selling the Mos Eisley Cantina for well under MSRP, and also well under the cheapest price I was tracking to that point. I placed my order for in-store pick-up and my wife went and got the kit after we ate dinner.

Now I just need some time to put the thing together. I've got a bunch of discussion board posts due in school tonight, so this project might have to wait until the weekend. I can't wait. If you are a Star Wars LEGO fan, I would go and check this deal out. Take care reading those blogs, too. You never know when one of them will jump out and sell you something.


  1. Damn I wish I'd have seen that. Didn't know you were into Lego's to Raz. I've also got a Lego blog

    1. It went pretty fast. Even at my podunk Wal-Mart the lady behind the counter said they'd received multiple orders within the span of a couple hours. I'll check out your blog.

  2. This might be a nice booster set to pick up If your looking to get into Legos.I have alot of toy blog friends that buy these up religiously. Nice pick up ;)

  3. Nice pickup. I'm more of a Clone Wars era Star Wars/LEGO SW fan so I won't be picking this set up (looks like I missed the promo anyway), but I'm sure it'll be a whole lot of fun for the people that did.

  4. I missed your post originally but glad I could be of service ;)
