I went ahead and bought the Werewolf. The Monster Fighters line has grown on me.

Ran back to my K-Mart for the heck of it. All those sets that were mysteriously missing the other day were put back, and I was able to get a Forbidden Forest set. It also appears that K-Mart's idea of "clearance" nowadays is to reduce the price by $2. They had one left of the Pteranadon Tower marked down to $17.99.

KMart does only reduce $2-5 then does the 50% off thing.

I picked up Olivias Tree House at TRU, had to use my rewards coupon, luckily it was only a $1 mark up.

Regarding the Werewolf, the $13 price point I got it for wasn't bad. It does feel slightly bigger than a $10 set, but not quite as big as a $15 one.

Also, I like the transparent crystal thing and the silver frog.

I think you are forgetting how much $13 buys you now-a-days.

83 pieces...
http://brickset.com/detail/?Set=9469-1

109 pieces, but only one minifigure....
http://brickset.com/...il/?Set=70000-1

86 pieces....
http://brickset.com/...il/?Set=70700-1

90 pieces...
http://brickset.com/...il/?Set=79100-1

That's the thing with everyone complaining about price increases, it's not really price increases, it's the price and value of a set less than $20 is completely off. For only $7 more you get such better sets, and 2.5 times the pieces.

The new Police Chase is $21.xx on AWD... (Unless I buy it, I haven't bought a City rescue set in awhile)
http://www.amazon.co...8&keywords=lego

And they have five Star Wars advent calendars from $26.26 and up.

Someone on ToysNBricks has been talking about AWD, we need to stab/hang him so he stops talking. :-P (And because this is the internet and people don't get jokes, I'm poking fun at some of the people here.) :)

My Advent Calendar came in from AWD, the left side is smashed in, but the front still looks OK. I opened it up and all the bags are fine so I'm happy.

And I thought I was done with Target clearance.

I wasn't even going to go, but because traffic was light, I stopped by my bank, then next door to Target for coffee. Of course I swung by toys.

I noticed the Avengers Quinjet. With no shelf tag. Couldn't be...this Target was wiped after Christmas. But of course I scanned it.

$20.98. Hell yeah!

My Target finally put out the Chima polybag in the Valentine's section. It comes with Winzar and a rather negligible snowmobile. It's an interesting gift for your Valentine ...

I just scored 4 Uruk Hai sets for 8 bucks each! Using some methods described here by karkyco , I searched my area on Target.com and only one store of about 15 even had them in stock. I went there and bought all 4 sets they had at full price. Then the next day took them back to the store where I had found Weathertop for $17. My return/rebuy excuse was that I wanted to purchase them separately from the other things I bought on the same receipt because they were "gifts" and I wanted a gift receipt. When they rang up for less, the cashier said "wow they are so much cheaper at this store! Lucky you."


Cool - as long as the store in question wasn't the Pasadena store, where the 4 Uruk hai sets they show as in stock are no where to be found. If that was the store, then we shall be at odds, good sir! Pissed me off when I stopped in last week while in the area and there was nothing but an empty shelf space where they were supposed to be. Thankfully I got a bunch at another store, as well as a couple gungan subs and some other LOTR sets at that Pasadena store.

After getting the ghost train and vampyre castle for peanuts, I want the other monster fighter sets. Have any of the other ones been on clearance at target besides the mummy and creature from the black lagoon? I'm specifically interested in the Frankenstein set, the vampyre herse and the zombies.

SPLASH!

Nothing says romance like Rapey The Wolf on his Bonemobile. Here's some good accompaniment music to set the mood:

This set goes right up there with the absurdness of the Harry Potter Christmas Poly.

How often does Meijer mark down clearance toys? They have a few Avengers Quinjet sets for $52(25% off) . Do they drop the price every week by a certain percentage? I am wanting it to hit $30, is that possible?

You are late to the party on the Zombies set. It had a much more limited run than the other Monster Fighter sets. It's already going for $100+. My Monster Fighters collection will likely be incomplete due to it. :cry:

I don't have any insider knowledge and even if I did, I bet it's YMMV. I do have an anecdote though. Many moons ago, my wife got 2 Brickbeard's Bounty (6243) ships for some insane price, like $25. She initially got one of those 2 for something like $70 (30%) off. She went back a couple weeks later and saw that Meijer knocked the price down to the steal price. She bought the last one and had the one she already bought price adjusted w/o hassle.

Yeah, I'm hoping to score the Vampyre Hearse on cheap too. Although I've run out of display room. I should have gotten the 5 shelf bookshelf when Target had it on sale a few weeks back instead of just the 3 shelf one.

Lake (not the east Pasadena one on Sierra Madre), although it is still coming up as in stock at that store. Got 3 Hobbit Warg Attacks today for $14.98 each. Now my wish list is down to just 1 extra Jabba Palace, 1 extra Helm's Deep, 1 extra Hobbit Shire Unexpected Gathering, 1 extra Weathertop, and 1 extra Mines of Moria.
