Anyone know of a good forum to talk about finding cheap legos? Basically, a cheapassgamer for lego shoppers.

Nope, LEGOs are different at each store, it's hit and miss with sales.

This place gives you coupons for different stores. The link is for the LEGO online store.

Your welcome, there are some LEGO websites that sometimes post deals, but hardly ever.

There is a $5 of $25 coupon for Target toys, but I can't find the link to it.

im glad someone started a lego thread. well you can get on www.lego.com and go to shop. they ususally have different deals by the week. sometimes you can get good stuff for 50 percent off. personally my favorite place to go is target. they always have some lego sets on clearance. i got the lego star destroyer for 40 bucks and the slave 1 for 12 bucks. in terms of bulk bricks the only deal your going to find is at a garage sale. cross your fingers. :D

I'm really looking for deals either online or B&M. My best bet so far has been looking for coupons on cheapassgamer. I've used the $5 target coupon a lot and plan to use the $5 TRU coupon today.

Other reasons I started this thread are because I missed a pimp clearance at my TRU. They had Arkham Asylum for $21. :( I was able to catch $3 off with and a $5 coupon on the cargo plane last month at my other TRU - by random luck. While both of those were likely YMMV, it would have been nice to post the finds for others or to see if others had finds too.

haha. well i'll keep my eyes open man. if i see anything else good i'll let you know. i stopped by target and tru today but they didnt have anything marked down except some exo force sets. until then just peep some yard/garage sales since its spring time. you can check craigslist, theres always a chance that somebody is selling a "box of legos" which could be an amazing find. i know a guy that bought a box of legos for 5 dollars and i had 2 millenium flacons in it. i hate him. damn things are on ebay for 200 dollars.

i had actually gotten the Batman Arkham Asylum for $17.xx after the extra 20% off...The reason it was still there was probably cause it was opened, but i took the chance since lego has great customer service when it comes to missing parts.

I ending up missing about 30-40 pieces and had no problem with lego sending them to me for free

This thread is a good idea. LEGOs are so great, but often very pricey, and other than the clearance stuff in the LEGO store, deals are few and far between.

Have you guys seen the Cafe Corner, Green Grocer, and Market Street sets? I've never been a Town person, but those are unbelievable. Gonna get those soon, even if I can't get a deal on them.

Amazon has the Cafe Corner for $119.99 with free shipping (and no tax in most states). This is the cheapest I've seen so far for this set in online/B&M store.

I got it for 40 and the box was beat up and had missing pieces, LEGO sent me all the pieces except for the head of the Riddler, very weird. I didn't want to email them for one piece.

And Cafe Corner is on sale at least once a week for $114 (Check your Gold Box), still too much for me, I rather have Mindstorms.

My Target never has legos on clearance. The best value I ever found was back in 2005 (I think), for Black Friday, Target had the $100 Millenium Falcon on sale for $50.

That being said, I'm now tempted to troll my local Target while I'm out today.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

Here ya go:

http://fbtb.net/

Mainly geared towards Star Wars LEGO sets but they do have a general B/S/T/Finds forum which sometimes they will post if/when TRU or any other stores have discounts/coupons. Been a member for that site for a long, if not longer, than CAG. Check it out.

I bought Truck & Forklift (7733) today from TRU. It has plastic bags labeled 1 - 4. Bag 1 was not for my set. I did some research - it's from Container Stacker (7992). Never seen that before. Calling LEGO once they're open.

I just bought Truck & Forklift too and my bag #1 is correct. So yah that's very weird your set got different pieces.

That's strange because they normally weigh the sets, so missing that many pieces should come up, and the set be rejected and corrected.

And I have a question for all of you, how old are you?

I've picked up several of the Star Wars Ultimate Collector's Sets. They are incredible, but very expensive. I've got these:

Death Star II:

http://shop.lego.com...43&cn=416&d=322

I've also got the Tantive IV and a Tie Interceptor from the same series, but I couldn't find pictures in my less than 30 second search.

All of them are impressive, but I really am trying hard to justify this one:

http://shop.lego.com/Product/?p=10179

The $500 price tag is probably just too much. Most of the ones from this series that I have gotten, were at half price, but with Lego only selling this one, it will probably be some time before the price drops.

I'm 24, and my wife gets pissed when I spent a lot on legos. :(

I guess the weights were similar enough?

Divorce. :)

And I have seen the $500 Star Wars set at a LEGO Store, it's HUGE, I mean massively huge.

Still not worth $500.
