Amazon Canada: $70 Off Star Wars The Complete Saga Episodes I-VI Blu-Ray Box Set

Posted by on August 14, 2014 at 10:00 PM

Amazon Canada: $70 Off Star Wars The Complete Saga Episodes I VI Blu Ray Box SetMay the force be with you as you take advantage of an awesome deal on a Star Wars box set. For a limited time, you can save $70 on the Star Wars: The Complete Saga (episodes I-VI) box set in Blu-ray and get it for just $89.99 (reg. $159.99). It comes up to 44% off the original price.

Even better is that this is a Blu-Ray version. Even though technology has widely moved onto Blu-Ray, DVDs are usually the ones being discounted, so it’s nice to see a deal on one of the most popular franchises in the world. When it comes to DVDs or Blu-Rays, I definitely only ever choose Blu-Rays, especially for high action and popular movies.

With a total of nine discs, six of the discs in this box set are:

  • Episode 1: The Phantom Menace
  • Episode 2: Attack of the Clones
  • Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith
  • Episode 4: A New Hope
  • Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back
  • Episode 6: Return of the Jedi

The other three discs features extra and deleted scenes:

  • Star War Archives: episodes 1-3
  • Star Wars Archies: episode 4-6
  • The Star Wars Documentaries

This Blu-Ray had actually been very much anticipated, and has over 150 reviews with a total consensus of 4.4 stars out of 5. Here’s what one reviewer had to say about it:

Star Wars on Blu-ray…it took a lot less time than Star Wars on DVD! And in special features and deleted scenes alone, it was well worth the wait. You can’t do a box set like this without the bonus of unseen footage. The good news is, The Complete Saga is loaded with unseen special features and deleted scenes. In fact, the Tosche Station scene is worth the purchase alone. It’s that great.

I have to admit that even though I’m not the biggest Star Wars fan, I can certainly appreciate a good deal when I see one. However, Star Wars fans should keep in mind the following review:

The original trilogy (without any 1997 added special effects, that is) isn’t there (that was to be expected), but also, the special features of Episodes 4, 5 and 6 (the documentaries, interviews, trailers, etc.) isn’t here anymore. Episodes 1, 2 and 3′s second discs are nowhere to be found either.

Plus, since Amazon typically ships orders over $25 for free, you’re also sure not to pay any added shipping fees.

Black Milk Clothing: 30% Off Licensed Star Wars Clothing

Black Milk Clothing: 30% Off Licensed Star Wars Clothing

Black Milk Clothing is an Australian company that has quickly developed a cult-like following. On this May the 4th, get 30% off (prices as shown) their licensed Star Wars clothing (excluding shooters) that is to die for.

A little clarification on terminology so you don’t think I have gone a little screwy: nomming (or ‘to nom’) is what fans of Black Milk do when they purchase Black Milk Clothing. Fans of Black Milk are called ‘Sharkies’ because of their awesome nomming skills that crashed JL’s server back when Black Milk was just a wee company of shiny nylon goodness. Before the Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Game of Thrones releases. Just saying.

Black Milk Clothing is my holy grail of clothing stores. I wear an item from Black Milk about five out of every seven days of the week. I may not be a huge Star Wars fan but I have had my eye on this Artoo Swimsuit ever since I found the company. The swimsuit originally cost $100 and I just bought it (OMG so excited I am!) for $70 AUD (works out to around $72 CAN).

I was sorely tempted to buy these Star Wars Montage leggings because they are just… AHHHHH! The best!! Get all your favourite characters in one set of hot and high quality leggings. Originally $85 they are now on sale for $59 AUD.

The Australian dollar and the Canadian dollar are pretty close to each other: CAN $1 = AUD 0.982. You also get free shipping on all orders to Canada but you can be subject to duty. Some suggestions from an old pro:

  1. Order each item separately
  2. Choose free standard shipping
  3. Exercise patience young padawan. I have waited anywhere from 4 – 8 weeks for my package to arrive.

Now go get some awesome gear. If you do buy anything, leave me a note in the comments telling me what you get! I would love to know.

Best Buy Canada: 15% Off Select Lego Series Including Star Wars, The Hobbit, LoTR & More!

Posted by on June 19, 2013 at 1:30 PM

Best Buy Canada: 15% Off Select Lego Series Including Star Wars, The Hobbit, LoTR & More!

According to Lehigh University the Death Star would cost about $850,000,000,000,000,000 to build. You can build your own Star Wars gear out of LEGO for much cheaper, and get 15% off at Best Buy Canada!

It’s not only Star Wars LEGO (sets starting at $12.99) that is on sale. You can also get Chima (starting at $14.99), Friends (starting at $5.99), City (starting at $8.99), The Hobbit (starting at $34.99) and Lord of the Rings LEGO sets (larger sets starting at $74.99). What better way to get your kids ready for the new Star Wars or the upcoming Hobbit movies, or even to get them into past properties like, of course, the original Star Wars or the LotR movies? Even the LotR books would be cooler with LEGO.

I suspect a lot of parents are going to dig these too. I know I can’t wait for my boy to be at LEGO-building age. I used to play with these sets all the time as a kid, so having an excuse to drop tons of money on sweet toys is gonna be great. Even if you don’t have kids, it can be a great hobby. We spend so much time playing video games and watching shows, that using LEGO as a tactile, physical hobby would be a great idea. It’s like the super-awesome version of your grandmother doing puzzles on the kitchen table.

Shipping on orders over $20 is free. Under $20, it depends on what you get and where you are, but a $13 Star Wars LEGO set costs less than $3 to ship to me.

Amazon.ca: 50% Off Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Episodes I-IV) Box Set

Posted by on December 7, 2012 at 8:30 AM

Amazon.ca: 50% Off Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Episodes I IV) Box Set

Before I go on, I need to tell you something. As we speak, this very instant, I am wearing a Star Trek shirt. I just wanted to get that out there before I told you about the awesome deal that Amazon Canada has on the nine disc blu-ray collection of Star Wars.

The pack was $159.99 but you save $80 and come out only having to pay $79.99.

For you folks who have been living under a rock without an Internet connection, Star Wars was recently bought by Disney. They’ve already announced that they are making three new movies and the writers attached to said movies.

So what better way to get ready for the mere potential of impending awesome than to watch the original six spread out over nine gloriously high quality blu-ray discs? Well, killing a wookie and mounting his head on the wall would be cool but you have those weak triceps from spending too much time on your computer looking up pictures of Princess Leia in the gold bikini. You could never support a gun. You might as well watch gold-bikini-Princess-Leia in blu-ray, right?

Shipping: Depends on quantity and type of items.

Amazon.ca: Up to 46% off LEGO Watches and Clocks!

Amazon.ca: Up to 46% off LEGO Watches and Clocks!

Telling time hasn’t been this cool since you got your first Timex Ironman watch! Amazon Canada is bringing block-based awesome to Bargainmoose, for less!

There are a ton of cool clocks and watches here. These are a few:

I don’t know who LEGO has working for them but that person is genius. Lately they have been expanding like crazy. They’ve always been a proliferating force in that they always have new sets of blocks and new ideas. It’s only been recently that they have been getting into other forms of media. Instead of only selling physical blocks, they are selling the look of their blocks. The example that first came to mind is the LEGO games. LEGO Batman, LEGO Star Wars, etc.. These games have nothing to do with LEGO blocks other than that the world and characters look like they are made of LEGO. More recently is the Ninjago TV show. And now we have LEGO clocks and watches.

Part of my son’s Christmas gift is that we are turning the spare bedroom into his new room and it’s going to be very, very cool. Perhaps a Buzz Lightyear LEGO alarm clock would be the finishing touch we need!

NCIX.com: LEGO on Sale + Free Shipping (Save up to $45)

Posted by on August 23, 2012 at 8:00 AM

NCIX.com: LEGO on Sale + Free Shipping (Save up to $45)

That’s right! NCIX is selling LEGO now. Your kids want it so why not get it cheaper and have it sent to your house for free? Bargainmoose loves you!

Here are a few of the LEGO deals available:

A couple of things right off the bat: the free shipping is on select items only. I’m not sure which ones, but I’m willing to bet it is valid for the smaller LEGO sets only. The 1254 piece Millennium Falcon might not be free. The sale is only good while supplies last and there aren’t many available to start with. Keep in mind that the quantities you see on the first link I posted, the one that goes to the page with all the LEGO on it, has the quantities that they started with. You’ll need to click into the actual product to see current stock.

I know, I know, LEGO isn’t tech and it isn’t gaming, but it really is cool! Plus, almost all this LEGO is nerdy LEGO. On top of that it’s sold by NCIX, a tech store. Like I said, this is all nerdy LEGO. There are no tribal volcanoes or race cars here, kids. It’s almost all Star Wars and super heroes. You or your kids may be familiar with the very popular LEGO video games which are, in large part, based on the Star Wars and Batman universes. This would be a cool way for you and your kids to experience the same properties you play on screen, in meat space.

It seems like this is a new thing for NCIX and the low quantities make me thing it’s just a test. So Bargainmoose, this is your chance to change something. Sell them out of LEGO and maybe we’ll get some awesome LEGO deals from NCIX for years to come! The fact that NCIX is selling it at all leads me to think that they aren’t really aiming these towards kids, but rather towards adults who want to play with LEGO or parents who want their kids to play with Star Wars LEGO. I assume, of course, that these parents would have just as much fun “helping” their kids play with the LEGO as the kids themselves would.
