Finally found something.
At a Walmart I looked at a clearance section and the sales weren't that good.
LOTR Weathertop was $50,Hobbit Goblin King was $85 and a lot of smaller sets were like $5 off.
Then I look at the regular Lego section and its a little thin , I guess since Christmas and some of the new sets are out.Then I see a cart that has a bunch of toys that people must have left else where and now have to be put back.Inside the cart is the LOTR Mines of Moria.I scanned it because it didn't have any clearance sticker and it was $54 so I got it.
It's wasn't mind blowing like some of the stuff you guys are finding but it was my first real find.

The Monster Fighters Vampyre Castle for $29.98 has to be one of the biggest steals of the year I would think.That is a big set.

I would have killed for a Uruk Hai army for $8.98.I have one already but I wanted more to do some army building but I have never seen it for less than around $25.


The only two I still need for LOTR are Weathertop and Orc Forge.I considered them the least important to me at those prices.If I saw either one for a big clearance price I would get them for sure.

I just finished putting the Vampyre Castle together tonight and let me tell you, it is definitely the gem of the monster fighters line. (aside from the haunted house set.) Honestly, it is probably the most under rated lego set of 2012. THough I doubt I would sell it, i wouldnt be surprised if in the future it goes for some big dollars. There are just a lot of little things that really make it unique and awesome. i mean where else can you get a lego pipe organ? Exactly. :)

I wasn't too dead set on getting the Orc Forge myself until I realized it was the only set with the Uruk-Hai armor that has the white hand of Saruman mark on them.

Impressed by the finds some have had at Target. I didn't even bother going out this time because the Lego was all gone weeks ago. The best I would have hoped to find was the Star Wars planet set.

I have had some luck finding random sets at Walmart that must be returns or brought from the back. Latest was the city camper for $9.50.

I have picked up 2 Vampyre Castles for $63 each and thought that was pretty good. $30 is an amazing deal.

It's usually $3.49 when they're first released. I bought Series 8 at that price, only because there was a promo for like $20 off $50 or something, so it came out to like $2.20 per minifig.

Found my LEGOWTF of the year already:

Visiting Omaha today, went to ShopKo for some pillows (60% off). Felt some Series 6 Minifigs for a wind-up robot. After finding it, we noticed the price...

..$5.99 for LEGO Minifigs! Then I noticed the rest of their prices. It's like the TRU Tax x2, but nothing as bad as the 100% tax on minifigs...

I'm going to make a late night Walmart run in a little while and see if I can find anything. Maybe if I'm lucky they'll have clearanced out the X-Wings that were sitting there.

Also ran to Target the other day and grabbed a Monster Fighters Mummy for $3.58. It's a nice little interesting set.

Yeah that's what I figure, but judging on stock levels in my area I'll either be incredibly lucky to get it cheap or just have to break down and get one. I can hope though.

I noticed at Lego's Shop that Medievel Market Village is listed as Out of Stock, but they've restocked Anakin's Jedi Interceptor and the Millennium Falcon. I also noticed the Minecraft set is "Temporarily Out of Stock" so I guess they might be making more of those. It also looks like the Impeiral Shuttle has been officially retired.

Yes you did. It was $80 on Amazon for awhile. Then was gone. It's official been retired since the fall.

My walmart still has about 10 X-Wings and they are at $40. I'm going to hold on and see if they will drop anymore. They have been this price for at least 3 weeks now. No one is buying them.

I'm going to stop by a Target and another Walmart that are about an hour away today.
I've been to 5 different Walmarts so far and gotten some tremendous deals. I'm hoping I can find a thing or two at this Target and Walmart.

Any set that isn't from 2013, scan it, it's the best way to go.

The Town Hall is only $145.

In case you hadn't seen it, this is a pretty awesome article about the historical cost per brick, cost per set, number of sets per year, etc. If you like numbers, this is a goldmine.

I'm guessing you're "The Green Brick Giant" then? Haha. I did a report similar to that one for my SAS programming class, and although I never got around to posting my results to Brickset, I found pretty much the same conclusions as the other fella. Namely, that sets are on average cheaper than twenty years ago. However, that speaks nothing to quality issues. Personally, I don't notice much of a difference. But if you do, you've got a right to be discontented by it.

Posted 21 January 2013 - 10:56 PM

I agree most sets are cheaper than 20 years ago because of inflation. My problem with the article is that they base it on solely price points. I'd also compare fire stations to fire stations and show a $40 fire station in 1982 would be $X today. It's a long article and just is too preachy and running on and on. It's a typical Lego can do no wrong fan article that should have never been reported as news.
