Found a Raptor Chase, Tie Fighter, Mining Truck and a Crazy Scientist on clearance today at Kmart. Saw an Alien Conquest Mothership too, but passed on it. Is that set a fun one?

Saw a Helm's Deep at one Kmart, and almost peed my pants thinking I had scored. Unfortunately it scanned at full price. :(

Has anyone seen Weathertop on clearance at Kmart? Just curious if I should watch for that one.

After playing Lego Lord of the Rings, does anyone else agree with me they should make an Isengard set? I would buy the crap out of that.


Was the Crazy Scientist marked as clearance, or in another section? It seems like my KMART has it, but not marked as clearance. Really want that set but refuse to pay the outlandish MSRP on it!

I got the AC Mothership on Ebay last year for around $30. It's a good set, but it deserves way more than 2 1/2 minifigs. The AC Commander is arguably my favorite minifig of all time, and the set is really cool, just is missing another fig or two IMO.

As far as Isengard goes, we know we will have the Wizard Battle set that takes place at Orthanc. I think an Isengard set would be cool, but I think Pelenor fields and Minas Tirith are the most warranted ;)

The Crazy Scientist set was marked clearance, but only at one of the Kmarts I went to. They had 2 on the shelf, but the box was crushed prettybad on one so I grabbed the other one.

Hey gang. I am in Palo Alto/San Jose, CA area this week. The nearest couple of KMarts are 15-30 minutes away, and I don't want to drive out if they aren't doing the 50% off clearance. Does anyone know?

Also don't want to go if they are already cleared out.

Ugh, can't believe I wasn't paying attention when the K-Mart clearance started. Stopped by one this morning, found a lone $30 Ghost Train, which I grabbed. Found some other toys for my kid, so it wasn't a total loss.

The 50% off clearance should be store wide. The only thing that is YMMV is what sets are on clearance. There seem to be some common ones like the Tie Fighter that are at most stores, but others are varied. Some have found the Helms Deep set on clearance while my Kmarts have them still at full price.

I think it's worth the trip to see what's there, but I enjoy the hunt.

The only problem with clearance on my end, most of the stuff I wanted got wiped out during Christmas or never got put on clearance.

I don't bother with Kmart clearance anymore. Dealers now are in my area scooping all sets. My Kmarts typically have low stock. Not worth the hassle.

So.... Did you scan some things? The sets are rarely priced correctly, the only way to know for sure is to scan things.

Hobbit King set is $66 on Amazon....

So the wife wants me to set up a build area and get more organized or she's cutting the lego budget for my son and I.

What are you guys doing in terms of build-space, part storage and display?

My brother and I put the Creator Lighthouse together recently (he built, I, being the OCD person I am, organized all the pieces by color/part and handed him each piece he called out). And as it was coming together, I had a thought of just how I would like to display the nicer Creator buildings.

I would very much like to redo my kitchen in the next three years or so, and as a little girl, I dreamed of having a Strawberry Shortcake kitchen... decorated with the old Strawberry Shortcake dolls I loved and grew up with in the 80s. They would be placed atop the cabinets. (Cabinets which go to the ceiling are great if you're tight on space, but I am not. And with a bad back, me trying to climb up to grab something from way up high would be absurd. So I will not have cabinets going up to the ceiling, as chic as they may be.)

As much as part of me would still love to see a kitchen with the dolls in their pretty boxes, I think the scale would be off. They'd be too small. But the great Creator Lego series, with their grand emporium and such... those could work. And they too are bright and striking. There's even a faux brick backsplash (light colored) at ikea that i'm pretty much certain is the backsplash i'll be going with- in the abstract sense, they could tie in with the Lego bricks.

Don't make fun, it looks good in my imagination.

No that's my problem, I never leave the San Fernando Valley because I have an eye condition that doesn't make it fun to drive far so I almost never find anything I want on clearance at my local stores.I can't believe when some of you guys find these sets so cheap.
In my dreams I keep hoping I could find someone to pick me up an extra of some these sets when there so cheap.

Any tools or tips for checking Walmart stock? I really want that 30230 Galaxy Squad poly but I rarely find polybags in my local stores.

I see that it's already popped up on ebay for a mere $10. XD

Shopko has a coupon addcolor10 to save $10 on $50, you might be able to mix it with a $5 new costumer coupon, and free shipping over $75. Plus there is a bogo50%, worth a look.

If you use the $10 coupon and go below the $75 you get charged $12 for shipping. So stupid. However with the bogo50% you can get the $20 City trucks for $15 and buy several and it's a good deal.

You can get two LEGO Galaxy Squad Vermin Vaporizer for $81.50 shipped before tax, and use the coupon and add something $5+ more and pretty much get it free and still have free shipping.

Got one last Friends ice cream stand poly last night at Target. It wasn't rining up so the lady just punched it up for 50 cents
This morning I stopped at Walmart and picked up a Headhunter poly for $3.97. They also had the Gandalf polys that TRU had a couple months ago

If you could get an item number that would help.
