Got the Lego catalog in. Didn't pay attention to the Chima sets at all, but I'm liking Eris' Eagle Interceptor. That would have been something I would have absolutely loved as a kid.

Or sets that make sense. The lair set has the street level on top, then two floors down has a tree. What the hell is up with that? The set is already an ugly mess, but some logic would have been nice. :lol:

I found a few things last week. Nothing rare - but stuff I thought was neat and the price was right. $9 Tipper Truck, $7 Blade Cycle and a few $1 polybags and minifigs. I had several more things in hand but ultimately couldn't pull the trigger.

There's another Wal Mart about half an hour away in the woods. I bet it's a damn gold mine - but I just can't be bothered to drive there.

I splurged for the Galaxy Squad Swarm Interceptor yesterday and man, I love this thing. The whole family thought it was neat, in fact.

Kai's Fire Mech is on my insta-buy list for next year and so is Series 9. Anxious to see that next wave of LoTR and Galaxy Squad. The Galaxy Squad mech looks promising.

Anyone have an extensive/comprehensive list of the sets that are on clearance at Target? Most Targets were wiped clean on the 26th, despite pretty paltry discounts of only 30%. I picked up a bunch of sets while waiting for them to drop in store to 50 or even hopefully 70% off, but the different sets that were discounted were all over the place and varied store to store.

SPLASH!

That's the only set I've wanted to pick up on sale and I've struck out at every chance. Great find though, congrats.

Ditto. Two Walmarts I stopped at today had every LOTR set on clearance EXCEPT for Helms Deep. Did find Drac's Castle but $70 was still too much.

I pretty much just got lucky with it, but I'm certainly not complaining.

They had a set in the toy section that was marked "Was 129.97 Now 89.00". When I got to the holiday clearance section there was another set sitting on an aisle, by itself, with a sign a foot away that said "Additional 50% off most recently marked price". So I snapped a quick picture of it, and when I got to the check out, I just mentioned where I found it, and showed the picture. I'm pretty sure someone had just grabbed it and put it down in this aisle it wasn't supposed to be in, but when the cashier called the manager over to check what price it should be, he basically just said "Ehhhh.. why not? We have to get rid of them anyways," and approved the discount.

I also picked up a Razcal's Glider Chima set today from Toys R Us. The markup wasn't as bad as the TMNT prices, but 13.99 is still above MSRP, and none of us like paying MSRP for anything. ;)

I figured I needed to use the rewards r us dollars they sent, though, so I got it anyways. The set's alright, but the only parts I was really interested in were the wings and a couple misc pieces, so I gave the rest of the minifig and the raven/crow glider to my kids, before finishing up a custom I'd been working on for my wife.

That Chima set is incredibly overpriced. Should be $10.

This set is $15, has two minifigures and 30 more pieces.

Agreed on the overpriced. I like the sword in the set you posted, but unfortunately that one has no wings, so it was out.

I have that figure. No clue where I got him, but I have the pants, the torso (I think), the mask, and I'm pretty sure I have that white piece somewhere. I just don't know where head is.

I agree 100%. I found a bunch of the old mini figs and I couldn't place which set they were with. Then I remembered the canoes...

Interesting.... The following are some sets LEGO added the inventory of, so we know the pieces. The Halloween one is a pumpkin, the others have mini figures. Maybe Thanksgiving or Fall one will be the free Black Friday set.

At least now I know I am not the only one who wants new pirate sets.My favorite pirate sets were the stuff from 1989-93.
Some of the 2009 sets were ok. The Imperial Flagship(2010) was pretty awesome.

I didn't find this thread until I typed "Cheap Ass Lego" into Google...

I got lucky and managed to get my Wal-Mart's last Luke's Landspeeder for $12. Also got the Mandalorian Battle Pack for $6, and the Sith Nightspeeder for $12. Hit up another Wal-Mart for the Clone Trooper Battle Pack for $6.

Got the small Jeff Gorvette and Francesco Bernoulli sets at Target for about $4.

Just before Christmas I got the Super Star Destroyer from Amazon when it was $310, and used a 10% off code, so before tax it was like $279.
