Best Lego Disney And Pixar Black Friday Deals, Including Elsa's Ice Castle From Frozen

Sun, 11/26/2023 - 13:53

Legos are for everyone nowadays. For Black Friday, Lego has multiple Disney- and Pixar-themed sets on sale, containing between a couple hundred to a couple thousand pieces. Our list covers sets for Lego fans between pre-school and working age, so read through the list to see which ones work for you (or your loved ones). After all, what could be a toy for an elementary schooler could be home decor for an older fan. Here are a few highlights to start.

Disney's Frozen Ice Castle is one of the most challenging sets on sale. The Ice Castle, Elsa's runaway home from Frozen, contains a 25.5" in tall replica of the castle, recreated down to the little ice spires. It's currently 20% off, plus a free Winter Market Stall set gift for those who order straight from the Lego website. If you'd rather have an sea-themed set (or much shorter building), the Little Mermaid Royal Clamshell includes a 12.5" tall clamshell, embellished with undersea details like seaweed, coral, and fish.

The Coolest Cars From TV And Film Are On Sale, But They Are For Your Kid's Playroom

Sun, 11/26/2023 - 03:22

They don't make cars like they used to, which is a good thing for the environment and a terrible thing for anyone who grew up on '80s TV shows and movies that starred four-wheeled vehicles that helped speed up global warming. Fortunately, there's a Black Friday sale on automotive nostalgia from PlayMobil that'll allow you to celebrate the pop culture past with some cute model kits. Plus, you won't even need to worry about filling up the tank on these little replicas!


First up, there's the Knight Industries Two Thousand Pontiac Trans-Am, or as Knight Rider aficionados call it, KITT. This model does come with a removable roof, flip-up headlights, and a gloriously permed David Hasslehoof, but it's beast feature is a built-in selection of original K.I.T.T. voice clips that can be activated by touching the hood. You'll also get minifigures of Knight Industries CEO Devon Miles and mechanic Bonnie Barstow in this set, and with 53 pieces to assemble, it's a quick and fun little diversion. Just remember to only push the turbo button when you really need to.

If you love it when a PlayMobil building plan comes together, then you'll definitely want this 69-piece A-Team set. You'll get the gang's signature van that they used when they were on missions, and inside you'll find interior equipment like a monitor, welding machine, operation boards, a cabinet, and a perforated wall for various accessories. The full team is here as well, so you can have fun posing Hannibal, B.A. Baracus, Face, and Murdock next to the A-Team van. Just keep B.A away from any airplanes, if you don't want to be on the receiving end of his pity.

PS5 Slim Digital Is Available Now, But These Black Friday Bundles Are Better Deals

Sun, 11/26/2023 - 02:45

The new PS5 Slim Digital Edition is now available at major retailers, including Amazon and Best Buy. Retailing for $450--an increase of $50 versus the original PS5 Slim--the console is a sleeker version of the same hardware. It's not included in any Black Friday sales, but we imagine it will still be a popular holiday item in the coming weeks. If you so choose, you can add a disc drive to the PS5 Slim Digital at a later date. The disc drive is available at Amazon for $80, but it already sold out at Best Buy.

PS5 Digital Edition Slim Console

It's worth noting that spending $450 on the PS5 Slim Digital during Black Friday probably won't offer the most bang for your buck for most people. And increasing the price to $530 with the disc drive certainly isn't advisable at this time. That's because of the PS5 Slim Black Friday bundles.

For example, you can get a PS5 Slim with a disc drive and a new game like Marvel's Spider-Man 2 or Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for $499 instead of $560.

Sat, 11/25/2023 - 17:28

Keyboards and mice are a key part of every battlestation, but they can be quite pricey.

Below you'll find an assortment of gear from top brands like Razer, SteelSeries, and Corsair. Keep in mind that Black Friday is the busiest shopping holiday of the year, so some of the best deals are bound to go out of stock.

Grab The Godfather Trilogy On 4K At Amazon For Cheap

Sat, 11/25/2023 - 17:08

For Black Friday, Amazon is about to make you a Blu-ray offer that you can't refuse. The Godfather trilogy, one of the greatest crime dramas of all time, is on sale in one convenient package and priced at $40. Normally you'd pay $91 for this set, but this is a massive 56% discount for the entire trilogy that has been remastered in 4K ultra high-definition.

See on Amazon

The first Godfather film set a high bar when it was first released in 1972, and it features a stacked cast of Hollywood's best actors. Marlon Brando was almost unrecognizable as the Corleone family don, Vito Corleone, and he's joined by Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, and a box of cannoli that's to die for. Directed by Francis Ford Coppola, The Godfather is a slow-burning tale of revenge and legacy that earned critical acclaim.

It was followed up by a sequel in 1974 that remained highly influential in the gangster genre and it's widely regarded as one of the best sequels of all time. With Al Pacino's character of Michael Corleone in the spotlight, The Godfather Part II weaves an intricate story that makes it both a sequel and a prequel.

Sat, 11/25/2023 - 16:59

Gaming upgrades typically focus on the visual side, but you can never discount the audio part of this equation. For Black Friday 2023, there are some excellent speaker deals available from a number of big brands in this field that you can use to add that touch of immersion to your gaming setup.

Lego Spider-Man Daily Bugle Set Deal - Save Over $100 At Amazon For Black Friday

Fri, 11/24/2023 - 19:10

The Lego Marvel Spider-Man Daily Bugle Office set just got a huge Black Friday discount at Amazon. The deal brings the epic kit down to $244 (was $350) for a limited time, saving you over 30% on one of the coolest Lego Marvel sets. Below the price, you'll see the percent of sets that have been claimed--we'd expect this one to sell out. It's one of three very good Lego deals that went live today at Amazon. You can also get the Lego Super Mario 64 Question Mark Block Set for $140 (was $200) and the Horizon Forbidden West Tallneck for $53 (was $90).

See at Amazon

The massive, 3,772-piece kit assembles into a four-floor Daily Bugle building that stands over 32 inches tall and features a whopping 25 minifigures of various Spider-Man characters.

PS5 Discounted To $350 At Target - Today-Only Black Friday Deal

Fri, 11/24/2023 - 19:00
See at Target

Target is selling the PS5 for $350 right now as part of its Black Friday sale. This deal is available today only, November 24, and is exclusive to Target Circle members (free rewards program). You have to order online and pick up the PS5 at your local Target store; this deal is not available for delivery. To take advantage of the $350 price, you have to click "save offer" on this page and then add the console to your cart using the button below (or above).

See at Target

In the three years since the PS5's launch, the console has received outright discounts very few times, and it's never been discounted to anywhere close to this price. $450 has essentially been the low, and even that would be notable. Speaking of that, Amazon has the PS5 on sale for $450. It's unclear if Amazon will price-match Target's offer, but Amazon has been matching most of Target's Black Friday deals. However, if Amazon has the PS5 for $350, it'll sell out even faster.

So, why the heck is Target selling the PS5 for $350? Well, it probably has something to do with the launch of the PS5 Slim earlier this month. The PS5 Slim has replaced the standard PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition. PlayStation has ceased production on the original pair of consoles in favor of the more compact refreshed models. It's worth stressing that the PS5 Slim is exactly the same as the PS5, other than the 30% size reduction.

This includes the Winter Market Stall (271 pieces), Majisto's Magical Workshop (365 pieces), and Lego Marvel Taxi (150 pieces).
