One target I checked out had some sets I think are no longer available anywhere, unless new versions have been released? I'm talking the clone wars walking tank and gunship, and some other sets. I've now seen everything on clearance that others have reported finding at target except the hulk heli carrier and the daily bugle, but I have a plan for tracking down any stores that have those sets on clearance. I also found a store that has the malevolence on clearance, $85 ish though, as well as...the new king's castle for $49.98!!! Out of stock but I will return/rebuy at least one, and more if it drops to 70% off in that store's system

SPLASH!

WOW!!!  I hate you know.  Awesome find!  Good job mom!!!

 

I forgot to say it's missing all the minifigures and the speeder bike, and two little driods or mines, however I'm not a Clone Wars guy anyways, I think the minifigures looked stupid.

 

But it's only missing about 6 main pieces, nothing horrible besides one cockpit.  One white piece is now grey, which is weird, but whatever.  The official set had over 1,000 pieces, I think this might be the biggest set I have bought, and only for a $1.  :lol:

 

And it was a $120 set, and my mom is like "I think I deserve 20% (Like $25) for finding it", even though she had no clue it was a full set.  I gave her a dollar.  :lol:

New LEGO theme alert!

 

LEGO Mixels

 

Based on some cartoon but there is a yellow shrub, so it's not a complete failure.

Picked up the Jedi Starfighter with the planet for $7. Probably could have waited, but I like the planet sets and that version of the Jedi Starfighter is my second favorite starfighter next to the A-Wing.

 

Mostly 30% off at my Target, nothing I was real super interested in. Probably should have grabbed the Daily Bugle set, but didn't want it that badly.

 

Still haven't gotten around to getting Series 10, maybe with this Friday's paycheck.

Here's an odd one: Minotaurus board game (+ LEGO Battles DS--anyone played that?) for $11.99 at Best Buy. Link Minotaurus has a solid green base plate and a TON of light green 1x3s. Free shipping too.

I hate you.  That's a perfect price for that set and almost half off.

 

However my mom seemed to have found a rather complete 7676 Star Wars gunship for a $1 a church tag sale.

 

So far it's missing a 1x2 brick with grid marks, 2x4 plat, a windshield and part of a gun arm.

 

Wow, that's... amazing...  I had a new one, but I ended up selling it to make room and because the new version was coming out.  

 

Looks like I've missed quite a bit of news in the past couple of weeks.  That winter set is a must buy for me.  It looks great, but it is a bit small.

 

I will post up some pics of the Lego stuff I saw when I was in Orlando at some point too.

@Target, Daily Bugle was $35 and Heli Carrier was $48.

 

Sure that's Helicarrier and not Quinjet?  That's only $1.99 off.

 

I have only seen the Helicarrier on clearance at one Target, for $34.99.  I went to several new Targets today, and they all had the Helicarrier at MSRP.  I've seen the Daily Bugle at 2.  Most places are clearing the Quinjet if they have it.

 

Not much to add.  One of the new Targets had the Creator 7347 Highway Pickup for $54, which is about the same as AWD.  Most of the new Targets did not have Galaxy Squad on clearance, making this the weirdest Target clearance I've seen.  It's pretty much a random crapshoot.

 

No new drops, no major items.  Summer stuff is being blown out at 70% off, but toys stick at 15% or 30%, with only one set I've seen (the Bug Obliterator) at 50% off at one Target.

I don't know if this is commonplace but I went into a Target today and stuff that was being clearanced on Friday (Gungan Sub, superman Black Zero) were no longer on clearance and scanned for full price. Weird.

Nice I love the Minotaurus game.  Very useful pieces plus a baseplate.  It seems to cap order at 3 of it.

Last week the the Target by my house had 4 Quinjets for $59.99; this week 3 for $49.99.  Can I expect the clearance price to drop each week or is it staggered?  Would really like to get one for $39.99.  Also what day ago do the prices drop?

Target and Walmart clearances are completely random and differ store to store.  If your's goes down $10 every week it's worth a shot to check.

Friends "heads up."  

 

LEGO.com is listing all the new sets(Dolphin Cruiser, High School, Emma's Car, etc) as being released on 8/1.  However my TRU already has the High School(SRP $50).  Of course it comes with the standard TRU markup.  $5 more on the website and over $10 more in store.  

 

They also had all the Cars sets on clearance.  Prices thus far were only about $5 less than SRP on the bigger sets.

Lone Ranger Stagecoach for 21.51 on AWD.  It's a delightful set, and well worth that price.

That's a very odd clearance cycle for Target. It's usually 15%, 30%, 50%, 70%.

AWD also had a LN batcave for 50.72. I didn't post it because I bought it.  :bouncy: I haven't seen too many discounts on that set in the last couple of months. 

 

They also have the train station for 48.69. 

 

http://www.amazon.co...&condition=used

 

Personally I would prefer to buy the train station from lego.com because they already give you 5% back by being a VIP member and I get 2.5% cashback with fatwallet. That combined with whatever their exclusive is that month, I would only buy the AWD one if it were less than 45.

They had 3 of them for that price right before Comicon.  I am kicking myself for passing that up, as the price of that set varies wildly.  Most of the time, it's overpriced on AWD because it's not on sale at Amazon.

 

Went to some new Targets.

 

Found the Lone Ranger Comanche Camp for 13.98 at one.  Bought that.  One of the few unmarked sets.

 

There were some other Creator sets on clearance -- the orange and white helicopter, for instance.

 

Saw the City Bank Heist set on clearance at two Targets, for round about $50.

 

Saw the Vampyre Castle on clearance at two Targets -- one for $87 and one for $78.

 

Daily Bugle and Attack of the Wargs were on clearance and sold out at two Targets.  These two go fast.

 

Finally, at a Target close to home (I was there Monday), they just put on clearance the Wolverine/Magneto/Deadpool set for $13.98. 

 

Went to a couple of Best Buys, too.  The first had 3 Minotaurus sets, marked at 11.98.  I picked up one to check it out and see if I could use it.  The next BB had 5 of them, so I got a few more.  I want to see what I can build with a few of these.  This BB had it marked at $30, but it rang up at 11.98.

Target has some random clearance.  Noticed a few HOBBIT sets 30% off.  Some of the CREATOR sets also.  I think I saw the Kamino Lego planet for 30% off too. 

 

I ended up getting a Halo Mega Bloks set for $6 (normally $22).  They had the KISS and Beatles figures for 50% off

Heading to the Lego store tomorrow, does anybody know of a way to get in-store coupons if you do not have a lego catalog in hand?

City Bank Heist? You mean the museum heist? The bank was clearanced out of all targets at the end of last year. This year's toy clearance at target has been awful. Nothing has dropped past 30% except a couple of sets, and it was supposed to be the big drop today and tomorrow, at least that's how it's been every other year.

Yes, the Museum Heist.  Thanks for catching that.  Drops have been slow, and new sets keep getting added.  Some items have gone to 50%, but most Legos have not.  Some stores have a boatload of stuff on clearance, and virtually no Legos on clearance!  It's kind of frustrating.

Some people, especially on toysnbricks, have reported getting catalogs without coupons, and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to it.  I haven't been mailed a catalog since March.  I definitely used the coupon then, and have been awaiting another.

Yup, and even worse is that soccer moms and other assorted idiots are buying them up at only 30% off and even at a paltry 15% off. Next to no chance of them hitting 50% let alone 70% off. Hopefully the sets won't drop out of the system though so that there may be return rebuy opportunities

I've never gotten a single coupon.  Of course the closest Lego store is 2 hours away so that may be a factor.
