Yeah the problems with Target and Walart clearance is one store can have a set for 0% off and another will have the same things, but for 70% off.

I'm hoping the Walmart in the middle of no where has the sets that are 0% off now 50% off when I go back. However this Walmart had the Robin and Penguin set and a SpongeBob set both $20 sets on clearance for $20 for at least 3-4 months then they became rare and disappeared.

AWD has the Goblin King set for $65.

And Toys N Bricks is saying a lot of Chima sets are 20-25% off on amazon.

Ran to Walmart this morning. They had a Landspeeder, and I was tempted to grab it to resell. They also put 3 X-Wings on the shelf, but that was ringing up full price.

Will probably hit Target later. I really want that Weathertop set, but nobody near here will clearance it.

Hit two Targets during lunch. Got a ton of stuff for my kids, but there was no Lego to be found. In fact, I didn't even find any Mega Blocks and only saw one Kre-o set. Oh well, still a worthwhile trip to grab stuff for the kids.

Clearancing pricing points between Targets has been all over the place. Scored a Vampyre Castle for $29.98, price adjusted 2 Naboo Starfighters down to $14.98, and most other sets went from 30% off to 50% off. Also got an Axis and Allies for $8.98, 70% off.


I need you to start doing my Lego shopping at Target! I guess it's a good thing I didn't find much, I only went to two Targets, one I scored a lot of things for my daughter and only one Lego Hero Factory set which is most likely a gift.

Anyone gotten the new Creator eagle yet? The set looks interesting.


Just found one today, its pretty neat and can fit two hobbits on its back. Not bad for $15 but would be much happier if it was $10.

Decent discount if you're into that Chima theme.

I like that boat, but still about $10 too much. Weird they are on sale. I think now that the cartoon has aired and will continue for some time that the series will pick up support.

TRU has a Chima event planned on the 26th 12-2pm. Trying out the speeders and the kids can watch a preview of an episode before it airs on TV.

Hey I was just curious around what area in LA are you finding this stuff. I am in the San Fernando Valley and the couple Targets and Walmarts by me never have anything on clearance?

Yeah, the size of it definitely makes it look like a $10 set, but the $15 price point still holds it near the price per piece amount I look for.

Hit Target last night, all they had were a Monster Fighters Mummy for like $3.89 and a Mandalorian Battle Pack for $11.82. The only Lord of the Rings set left was the Shelob Attacks set, so they must have clearanced out everything else and I missed it. I may go back and try to grab that Mummy set, it looks interesting.

Regarding Chima, the only two sets I've seen I actually really liked are the Eagle Interceptor and the Razcal's Glider set.

The Wakz Pack Tracker (That wolf truck thing) is also on sale for 22.05 on Amazon, it's normally 29.99. I grabbed both because I kind of want some of the minifigs though I don't think either vehicle is going to be built. Into the parts bin they go.

The Chima Cragger Command Ship is 28% off, $57.25 on Amazon.

Brickset and some random (sketchy) website have a deal on some old Knights Kingdom mini figure. It's a $1.80 and if you buy 10 it seems shipping is only $3. However you have to pay with paypal, which I don't have. Plus the minifigure is nothing special, unless you want the old octagon shield. The ones in the CM series have been a lot better for only a little more.

MWAHAHAHAHA, nah I'm not one of the massive toy buyers/flippers/resellers, I almost always buy 2 of each model tops, unless it's a crazy good deal that will make great Christmas/birthday gifts (the recent Pod Racer price mistake at Target, for example).

As for where I go, I hit up the Targets everywhere in LA county and OC along my regular travels, and sometimes Riverside/San Bernadino, Ventura, and San Diego. I meet with a lot of clientele all over SoCal, so as I'm out and about these areas, I will hit Targets and other stores and find clearance sets/deals here and there. Also, I have a list of DPCI's which I am tracking on a note in my phone, and check them at every store I go to. That is how I found my super monster score o' the day, there's a store that has the Marvel Quinjet set for $21.xx, Jabba's Palace for $36.xx, Uruk Hai army for $8.xx, the Orc Forge for $11.xx, and the Forest police station for $23.xx.

So I picked these up at another store where they are regular price, and returned them to the store with the 70% off clearance price. If they deny me the return/rebuy, I will simply return it right then and there, and check in later in the day to see if any/all were put out on the shelf. But today, the CSR rep said it was my lucky day. They refunded me close to $400 and re-rang the sets up. Came out to a bit over $100.

I just need to find a Gungan Sub or two, plenty of stores have it in the system at full price/MSRP but not in stock. Another store has it in the system for $20.98.

If you are looking for Gungan Subs my targets have a ton of them but not marked down :/

West area Houston, TX Target store recon report:

Well I have been about 5 Target within the west loop area: S. Main, Meyerland, San Felipe, Westheimer (closest to the loop), and Shern (Next to I-10)

Have you ever seen what a exploded bomb leaves behind? I havent but Im pretty sure it looked like the toy clearance section of every one of these Target. Everything was just about ransacked except for a few gems well hidden from view.

Most of the larger MegaBloks World of Warcraft did went on say for 70% off in some location, but not all locations I visted. Deathwing Stormwind Assault set was clearanced for $30 and the Demolisher Attack for $14, I managed to grab the last of each sets.

Now for the important question, did any of the Legos sets went on clearanced? The disappointing answer is no. Not one iota of Lego set went on sale, none one of the Monster Fighters, none of the olders Star Wars, and none of the LOTRs sets. Will they go on clearance next week? Some can hope for that to happen.

But I also visited some Walmart stores in the area and they already have their clearance aisle setup and some of the store already have Lego sets for sale but they are most close to their retail price point. I give it a week for them to go down further, and pick up some of them if any of them are left.

Shout out to the H-Town CAG / Lego members! ^_^

You're gonna have to do a purchase at a store that has it at full MSRP then a return/rebuy.

There are a few stores that have it clearanced (undoubtedly all OOS), while the ones that have it in stock have it at full price or a lesser % off.

Check the store inventory tracker for your area for it. Then you could call the stores near you and ask them to price check the item's DPCI, 204-00-4165. This should save you time from having to go store to store.

Culver City on Jefferson has it priced at $21.xx in the system. I picked one up at La Cienega for full price, then did the "change payment type/change credit card" return & rebuy at CC Jefferson.

Man I hate living in a town with no lego store...The only place to get technic sets is Toys R Us and they never freaking put technic on sale or they just exclude it from EVERYTHING. Is there a way to request a lego store? There are plenty of leasable storefronts in my town.

You are the worst kind of customer to deal with in retail. This isnt like some return/rebuy because it was in the ad 2 days later, this is just dishonest scamming of the system. Im all for finding a good clearance deal but stuff like this is ridiculous.

He isn't the worst kind of customer to deal with, because he doesn't sound like an asshole. Have you heard his explanation? He tells them he wants to change payment types and there is not issue. The worst types to deal with in retail are the people who feel they are entitled to whatever they want and are an asshole about getting it. He is just out smarting the system, which I personally have no problem with.

The Anakin in that set has been in a lot of the Clone Wars sets of 2008 and 2009, Dooku only came out in the Solar Sailer but I don't think he's too popular.

So, was your soap box heavy when you had to carry it into this thread? This is not "dishonest scamming of the system". Target price matches every other retail store , including Amazon from what I have heard, but yet, they cannot honor their OWN companies clearance prices? Right, lots of sense is made there. :roll:

To keep this actually related to lego purchasing, found the Monster Fighters Mummy set for 5.98, but the real find of the day was the Monster Fighters Vampyre Castle for 29.98 :) :)
