Fantastic deal.

Oh gawd it's over the magic 35% discount....still think I'd go to Tesco at £111 + £44.44 Bella Italia coupon through clubcard though.

Anything to do with Lego is massively over priced. They probably cost tuppence to make, but the profit margin is absolutely huge. A greedy company which I try to have nothing to do with.

Well my son loves it. I can see the value in some of the larger sets especially the modulars. They're cleverly designed and detailed. I'd rather spend £££'s on Lego than waste money on other toys which are played with for a day then not used.

Well Lego have built a business empire to be envious of. Great product which has evolved, people still buy and love throughout generations, highly profitable . The moral of the story is wait for a decent deal on it. Never pay full price!

What you pay for is very well-made, durable components, which are back-compatible with decades old toys of the same make. I have Lego that's over 20 years old, still in great condition, still works with brand new Lego.
(I will say though that the licensed Lego sets - Star Wars, Marvel, etc - are way over-priced due to the licensing fee built into the price)

I have some from the 60s my kids played with it in the 90s it is still fine not faded or cracked like most modern toys do within weeks, this kit has 888 pieces that's under 1p per piece! and there are motors and controllers in the box as well.

Thanks! Great deal for an item I've been watching for ages. Bought for the boy's birthday...in December! :-)

10p a piece (sorry)

It is a great set for the money though, lots of replay/modification possibilities - especially if you have some other sets, to get some really imaginative play

I've seen old faded, cracked and worn Lego.

The older stuff wasn't as good as the materials now.

Sure it may have been how it was looked after, but old stuff is not as good as now.

Reserved 2. Gosh it's expensive having twins!

Bit silly - why not buy one of this and one the passenger train set which is on sale too...

Fab reserved one, thank you

Gone up to £139 so if reserved and not picked up yet.....that will be the price? or will they honour the cheaper price

Went to collect my two sets, paid on Wednesday by the fast track system.

It appears it's no track! As no stock has arrived at the store even though I've paid :-(

So fingers crossed they get them however the manager didn't look very hopeful as offered me a refund, which I declined and said I would like the item so I will wait.

Anyone else have problems?

The deal I've posted has now expired but maybe if anyone saved a screen shot or printed off the original deal there's still a chance Toys R Us would Pricematch? I did that immediately as I didn't want to wait for Argos on the off chance they wouldn't honour it as sometimes happens with deals this good. As long as Toys R Us haven't twigged it's expired they might do the deal?

This deal seems to be off. When I go to order it shows at 139.99

I guess you haven't read the posts before yours.

I'm due to collect my order tomorrow. Has anybody had the price honoured? It's funny how it wasn't available for 4 days, how is anybody able to get at the offer price if they make you wait to collect until the price goes up? Also funny how stores with stock now have immediate collection available? Is it a con to get you in to pay full price?

Mine was due to arrive Friday but actually turned up at store on Saturday. I had paid in advance so got it for 85 :-)

If only reserved but not paid, try showing your confirmation email as they might honour that.

I had the price honoured when I collected it at the till, the price came up as £139.99 but I showed the confirmation email and they charged me the lower price.

If you have reserved this at 84.99 and have either a confirmation email or text stating this price then Argos will honour the price only if you go to the till point to query and pay.

Thank you, the price was honoured!! Bargain!

Price was honoured without question. The friendly lady who served me wasn't at all surprised and was quite happy to sort it out. She also commented on what a too deal it was :-)

Thanks OP!
