The Mine did ring up this morning at Wal-Mart for $39.97, much to my amazement. No shelf tag reflecting that, but it is in the system.

Wow. It's still $90 on the website, so it looks like I'll be price matching this morning. Even the online copy of the ad still has it at $39.97.

Nice!

I also grabbed The Mine, but I had to have them manually adjust the price (showing them a print out of the price from walmart.com's "view local ad" tab) a few minutes after midnight, but maybe their system doesn't update immediately.

Target has all Monster Fighters on sale this week. The Castle is $80.25 and Amazon has matched that too.

Got Target to pricematch the Mine set early this morning...probably didn't hurt that I was dressed for church and may have actually looked respectable. Too bad my son was with me...this will not be a set from Santa now.

I picked up 2 of these at Walmart .. They scanned that price so no need to talk to a manager .. That set should have never been $90 to start with ..

Yeah, the CAG in me sees the outrageous sale amount and wants to get it.....but I'm not going to because that set looks pretty boring to me. Still, if you like the set, that deal is f-ing killer.

My daughter wants to make a MOC of the cave scene from the Hunger Games, so a lot of the pieces from this mine set will be useful. Might just sell the extra vehicles to get some money back.

I ended up picking the MINE set up for my son. He is two and honestly it will probably sit in the box for two years. I'm not a HUGE LEGO collector or anything, but on great deals, it's always good to stock up on gifts for the kids. I now have this and the Toys R Us Semi Truck I got for like $20 last year.

I got it at TARGET also, and got 5% back for RED CARD. Excellent deal...thanks WalMart.

I got 2. Ordered one for pickup in the early AM and grabbed another while at the store.

Agreed. It's a pretty lame looking set but I picked up a couple just for the pieces. $40 for 750 pieces is pretty solid. Plus gray is one color I'm lacking.

Clone Wars has lots of colors. =P

I slipped by the Lego isle when I went to the store earlier, I don't know if anybody bought up the whole stock or if it was pulled. The did have an empty spot for it, I was there around 10ish in the morning so who knows. I'm not in a hurry for that set or really want it to begin with.

One WM had the Hulk carrier for 25.00 even. Wasn't a red tag either. had 2 left, but way YMMV.

I don't know why it's that price but it rang up that much.

:lol: Nope. I have the Falcon and a couple of the sub $20 sets but I have 2 girls so I'm mostly into the Creator and [now] Friends series.

I also have the first SW Collector Series TIE Interceptor. Bought that when it came out and had no idea the series would be so cool. Didn't buy another set until I had kids. Looking back I wish I kept up with it, I would have bought the CS Falcon in a heartbeat.

I live around a bunch of shitty asshole resellers apparently, who hit (I presume every) Wal-Mart in the area at midnight and bought up all the Mine sets they could get their grubby hands on. I discovered this after going to one store and calling about 7 other stores and talking to the toy departments. Everyone was like "Yeah some guy came in early in the morning and bought them all". After hearing the same story at each store I called, I gave up on Wal-Mart and focused on Target. Well they had also hit several local Targets with the Wal-Mart ad and price matched. The first Target I went to had a big fat empty space on the shelf. Rather than drive around all over town, I started calling Targets. Finally I found a Target not too far away with 1 Mine left and had it put on hold. Took some work, but I got in on this great deal too. Seriously though why do these scalper people have to buy every damn thing?
I also hit one Toys R' Us on the way to Target. They had tons of Mines, but weren't price matching due to an "email" from "Wal-Mart". Toys R Us is just outright lying in my opinion. They claimed Wal-Mart emailed every Toys R Us and told them not to price match their misprinted ad. Okay so why didn't they email Target too? Sorry TRU, but I don't buy it. Why would Wal-Mart give a shit about you losing out on $70 per set of your own inventory? I think the TRU corporate people knew they would be screwed with the new price match policy and this Wal-Mart ad, so TRU corporate was the one that actually sent that email, not Wal-Mart. They are quick, I'll give them that. They have a very specific and strict ad requirement and this Wal-Mart ad fit all the right criteria for them to do a price match and they had to stop it somehow. This fake "email" story is the perfect disclaimer. I guarantee you that any awesome deal in a valid ad in the future will get the same price match denial and story (lie!) from TRU. "It was a misprint so we can't match it, sorry" BULLSHIT!!!
Okay rant over. LOL :bouncy:

Went to the lone Walmart in LA, the ghetto Crenshaw mall location, and they not only had none of the mine sets anywhere on the floor, no shelf tag either, but they had last weeks ads out only, piles of them.

No one could find a copy OC this weeks as so I assumed they had pulled them because of the price Fuck ups, but nope this store is just so shitty they had the ads still in their boxes in a back room. Got a few copies to do price match at target for the bonus 5% off plus an additional 5% off bonus offer I got in the mail.

Note the Walmart ad also has the gandalf arrival set advertised for a ridiculous $29.97.

SPLASH!

Can anyone tell me if the Toys R Us 20% $100 or more coupon that came in emails yesterday is valid on regular-priced Lego purchases? I was thinking about getting a couple of the Halloween sets. Wasn't sure if the Bricktober free figures would disqualify the coupon based on 'excludes sale items and promotional offers'.

Happened to be at Target on Sunday for Skylanders, they were out of the Mine, didn't have a WM ad yet. Went to WM today while I was out and picked up and ad but they were out of the Mine, didn't even see a shelf label. However, I did notice they had 7572 Prince of Persia set, Quest Against Time, which I know is older, scanned for $25 so I pickeed it up. I think MSRP is $50. I'll try to find the mine at another Target so I can get the extra 5% on my red card. I actually think the Mine looks kind of cool.

Mines cleaned out at my WM. There was a tag saying ROLLBACK $89 in the empty spot. No mine for me.
