It's been up and down by a couple of dollars over the last couple of weeks. This is the best price I've seen this at unless you got lucky with a TRU closure before the liquidator took over. Confirmed with an Amazon price tracker. How good is the set - well, the dealers in the area stripped them out at the same time the price dropped on the remaining Technics Heavy Lift Helicopters at TRU. It's a good set.

The high end Mega Contrux blocks are pretty close to the same quality as Lego. They fit a little tighter, but also stay together slightly better. No numbered bags (Lego Group got a patent on that vomit) so just get a couple of Plano 3750's or the Harbor Freight equivalent to presort. My 8 year old son occasionally needs help when two large plates stack on each other. The figures really work for this set - see the review below from Jangbricks, my go-to video reviewer for Brick Sets.

Actually it's been just above $60, it went down to this a month ago for a about a week and went back up over $60. Just went back down again. The $45 is third party sellers so you'll often have over $10 of shipping for a large box. Target doesn't carry it, and Walmart didn't have a better price on it. Kohls doesn't seem to carry these either, and now TRU is defunct. Frown

I know about Price Mistake pile-ons, but good Lord, I cannot even mention how it compares to Lego when that's what people are going to ask about. I've posted Mega Bloks deals before, but I've always waited to talk about the quality until someone asks, but someone usually does so I thought I'd be nice and post the info for people who are curious in the OP.

This is becoming absurd, the title doesn't list Lego in it and is somebody going to be pissy because they cannot read the thread title in their email alert (I assume it's in there, I've only done alerts once in my time on SD)? Then again, the TD show you're right. I could see the poster on the price above giving it a TD, the discount is warm but it's as discounted as this set gets from a major retailer. But for using "Lego" in the description so people know these are really good quality - that's simply petty.

Don't forget that saying the PM phrase also triggers a ton of alerts.
