The Unexpected Gathering set looks pretty cool. Might have to get that one.

Please note that this is "From" $9.97. I only see one of the sets at that price, the rest are higher.

This doesn't look like it is saving you any money at all... you can choose one LEGO set in your "bundle" and the resulting price is the same price as it is on Amazon. Can someone correct me if I'm missing something?

@murphinator2000: You buy another of the 5 listed sets and you get $10 off that set. Example: The Uruk-hai Army set, normally 29.99 is on sale for $23.75 and with this deal it is $13.75

@gribber: Where are you saving the $10 from? The bundle says select one LEGO set FROM $9.97. If I add "LEGO Hobbit Escape from Mirkwood Spiders Play Set" to my bundle, my shopping cart final price is $29.97. Which is the price of the LEGO set outside of the bundle. When you add the LEGO set to the bundle you're adding $20 to the $9.97 already in the bundle.

The only thing I can figure is are you saying I get the pictured Gollum LEGO set + the set I choose for the total price? If yes, then this deal is terribly outlined :)

@gribber: To further elaborate, before you even put anything into the bundle the Bundle Total is already $9.97. Once you add a LEGO set to it, that $9.97 doesn't go away, so you don't save any money with this bundle unless you can explain the steps to get remove of the initial $9.97 from the total.

For those interested, it seems like there is a $10 e-card bundle deal for SOME of the lego sets. It is not in the link posted above. I found it by doing a search at Wal-Mart for LEGO Hobbit. Here is an example:
$10 eCard: http://www.walmart.com/ip/LEGO-Hobbit-Unexpected-Gathering-Play-Set-Bonus-10-eGift-Card/22566385
$15 eCard: http://www.walmart.com/ip/LEGO-Hobbit-Goblin-King-Battle-Play-Set-Bonus-15-eGift-Card/22566384
$5 eCard: http://www.walmart.com/ip/LEGO-Hobbit-Attack-of-the-Wargs-Play-Set-Bonus-5-eGift-Card/22566386

@murphinator2000: The listing should have said something like "Buy Riddles of the Ring for $10 and get $10 off a second selected set".
Walmart is bundling the Hobbit set "Riddles of the Ring" with the other sets listed and giving a discount on the bundle. The Riddles of the Ring is a required purchase to get the bundle discount. It is at its normal price of $9.97. That is the $9.97 that is the starting price point. The other sets listed are $10 off if purchased in the bundle.

Example: add Mirkwood Spiders to the bundle for $20 - and the total will be $29.97. This is to purchase both Riddles of the Ring and Mirkwood Spiders. Normal price of Mirkwood Spiders if purchased separately is $30, so you save $10.

Legos are drastically over priced for what they are. You pay $40 for around $5 in plastic pieces.

@gribber: I'm afraid I'm having the same issue as the Murphinator. I can add another playset and I end up with a bundle of two sets for the same price as the two sets would be separately.

@Murphinator: The prices are lower than the same set on Lego.com (by $10) and that first set (the $10 one) is not available on the website.

So, basically this deal is: buy one LoTR or Hobbit set from the selection and get a free exclusive set (because you save $10 but then the bundled set costs you $10)

Edit: ...which is what the Murphinator wrote several posts above mine - guess I spent too long "researching" my answer (got distracted by the Star Wars sets again!)

@bione: The prices listed in the bundle are not the regular Walmart prices, they are discounted by $10.

@gribber: I just got off the phone with Walmart.com and they confirmed the promotion is buy one of those LEGO sets that are listed and you will get the Riddles of the Ring bundled in. So what you said is correct, but this is the poorest e-commerce setup I have every seen out of Walmart. Typically they have the item that is "free" in your bundle already then you just add to it.

Horrible, but confirmed nonetheless.

@murphinator2000: I agree very confusing if you haven't seen it before. I had seen another bundle a while back on walmart.com that worked similar, but was described better.

Well, I just got my order in the mail and it only came with one set (the set I chose from the list). There wasn't the $9.97 hobbit set included. Some bundle. I just paid regular price for one set. How was this even a deal? Or did they screw up my order?

@deadite7: I also received the 1 item. When i went on they had the gandolf arrives set in the choices...its gone now. All I got was the gandolf set and no riddles. I called Walmart.com and the CSR I spoke with pointed out that the gandolf is 12.97. I said I know, but when I ordered them it was a "bundle" and the bundle choice is not a choice anymore...so I asked where was the "bundle" I ordered...and they said I had to order both for the bundle. I said I did...it lists bundle, but it LOOKS like I didn't because the $10 off is the same as the 9.97....ergo...you cannot prove you bundled it because they list the whole product as ""the last bundled item you ordered with the riddles set"" and not each item separately with a "bundle tag" next to each. E-commerce gone horribly wrong. stay away from this deal everyone. its more confusing than its worth.

@gigglecow1: thank you so much for posting this. I was like, "seriously, I'm the only one on woot who got one set?!" It's funny how the cs rep told you that you had to buy both the Riddles set and another set to get the discounted price since it isn't even possible to add two items in this "bundle." I agree. Everyone stay away from this misleading deal.

@deadite7: Walmart royally screwed this up. Same thing happened to me at store pick up.
