Went to four different Targets. 

 

Target #1: No Lego on clearance.  Nothing.

 

Target #2: Battle of Smallville (34.95) and some Chima sets. 

 

Target #3: Fire Department (69.97) and some other City sets; nothing at 50% off

 

Target #4: Gorzan's Gorilla (34.95), big Chima set (74.95) and some different City sets; nothing at 50% off

 

Pretty disappointing.  Looks like the Republic Gunships are long gone, and I didn't see a single Marvel/DC set on clearance.  The last Target had a whole clearance row, but few Lego.

 

Most of what I saw today, I have seen online for cheaper -- and passed on.  I would have liked a Republic Gunship for 60 or a Gorilla for 25, but it's not meant to be.

Went to a Target and Toys R Us today. Target didn't have anything special, just Battle of Smallville for $35, a few city sets, and the usual Chima, but no prices good enough for me to bite. TRU had red clearance tags on some Lego, but discounts not good enough. For example, Palpatines Arrest was $90.

Stopped by a local Target and found a few things onsale, most mentioned here already. I did pick up Gorzan's Gorilla Striker for 24.98.

Whats the usual day that Target drops clearance %? Last week and this week mine has been 30%. Theyve had 2 MF at 97.99 for two weeks now...hoping they might hold out until the 50% drop, is it on Thursdays? They had 1 dragon mountain for 34.99 but I assume itll probably be gone by then though.

It is Thursdays, but as others have said it could be Thursday before the store opens or Thursday at 9pm, there is no way to know.

Stopped at Target.....the only 50% off were the LEGO City ones.  Some firefighters and a few planes.  The $100 set was $50, but I passed.  They had 2 Star Wars for 30% off.  The A-Wing and the Spider Droid set.  Not too much else at mine.  The LEGO MOVIE calvary set was 30% off also. 

 

I'm not a LEGO fanatic, kids like it....sort of.  I passed for now.

I would love for Lego city to be on sale near me. Need to grow my town

Thanks to my brother, I snagged a LEGO Star Wars Gunship for $61 at Target on clearance. Sweeeeeet. It's for my son, but mostly for me too.

Went to one Target today, no clearance Lego, although I did find Settlers of Catan Star Trek version for 50% off, been watching the price for a long time, was hoping it'd go on sale. $25 is a steal.

You're near me. right? Whats the store your talking about? My the last two I checked were out of the MF altogether. I'm also looking to find a Lion Chi Temple at 50% off.

Eh im about an hour and a half north of you (near Chattanooga, TN).

 

On another note, TRU has B1G1 40% off this week which is normally not a good deal considering the TRU markup BUT...they still have the new Guardian of the Galaxy sets (and possibly others that are new releases) for the regular/normal MSRP.

Surprised no one has posted this yet but per FBTB.net


Today, Comic Vine has revealed the retailer exclusive bonuses for LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. To save you a click, here it is a in a nutshell:

  • Gamestop will get the above-pictured Plastic Man.
  • Everyone else gets something that sucks more than Plastic Man.

And that’s all you really need to know. But if you’re still interested in knowing what the others are getting:

Here’s a link to LEGO Batman 3 on Gamestop. The game will be out on all current generation systems, including PS3 and XBox 360 but not for the Wii. Gamestop says the release date is 12/31/2014, but that is always subject to change.



Already have my copy preordered at GS, usually don't reserve games but the guys at my local store are nice and helped me out with some spare minifigs in the past so I threw $5 down. Good to hear that Target will have the Batwing poly in store, have never seen it in TRU

Nice thanks for this, though the GS site doesnt say anything about the bonus. Ill probably preorder one from there once they add it. The hobbit one included it with the 3DS version for only 29.99. I just did that and returned the game to the store lol.

was just in B&N today too....dang. What are their coupons that you guys occasionally talk about? I assume you have to be in their yearly paid program to get them?

Found a beat up Gunship today, was excited at first, no sticker...rang up at $84.xx.  Not excited now.  Only other clearance was Chimera and Battle of Smallville still at $35.

To get the best ones, yes. If you sign up for some of their mailing lists, they will send you 15% off coupons, usually on Thursdays, and on average twice a month.

does B&N have a markup (like TRU)? or are there prices pretty comparable/consistent w/ Target etc.

Saw the firetruck and firehouse sets at Target today for 30% off. Tempted, but didn't bite. The price of the firehouse set was about what it is on Amazon...

Actually some of the sets do have mark ups but it's not outragous, usually $2-$3.

 

The sets that I saw were....

 

The Mine 4204

Excavator Transport 4203

Cement Mixer 60018

Lego Technic Bucket Truck 8071

I've never pre-ordered a game from GameStop before. Do you get the figure when you pre-order or when you pick up the game? And if you get it when you pick up, what's the policy for returning the game? Do you have to give the figure back, also?

You get it when the game comes.  You can keep it when returning...you just have to be able to live with yourself afterwards.

When you pick the game up, but even if you preorder there's no guarantee you'll get the figure. Unless it's a busy and highly trafficked store, they probably won't get enough figures to cover the preorders. If you preorder, make sure to get there as early as possible on release day.

^^^^THIS. I've been burned by physical GS preorder bonuses before. You might have better luck getting an online preorder shipped to your house, but you should probably wait for the site to mention the preorder bonus before ordering.

Yeah, so far so good here with ordering online. It even shows the preorder item on your order list (usually, Im waiting until this new one shows the bonus available on the site). I returned The Hobbit last time since I wanted it on PC instead (which they didnt offer) and they even refunded my shipping and everything lol.

If you do get it, I also suggest online. I did this with LOTR and got Elrond no problem. I just can't support GS anymore, that place disgusts me.
