I know Walmart clearance can be very YMMV, but my local store had the Monster Fighter sets on clearance. The only one I really remember was the train set for $54. There was also a City helicopter and a fire plane.

They had quite a few of everything, so I figured I'd see if they went down further.

I was just going through all the sets I have in boxes, I have 354 sets not including the ones I have in the closet or recently purchased. You can add another 50 or so to that total, when does it end.

Are they open boxes or are you just some weird collector that never actually builds the sets?

I need to start thinning out my collection. I have nowhere to display the sets I have anymore. The problem is choosing what to sell off.

I guess I'm a weird collector according to you, I've opened maybe around 10% of what I have, a lot of them are doubles, triples of the same kind of set.

I think I'm going to start doing that too, I've got somebody looking at the Green Grocer for $350, you guys thinks that's a good deal?

Yes, having hundreds of boxes of LEGO that is never been built or played with is weird. :booty:

No. I think you can easily get $450-$500. eBay and Amazon has them for $500-$700, but tons of them, so I think $400 to $500 would be in demand.

I wish I bought that set, it's beautiful, along with Cafe Corner.

This is outside of ebay, so PayPal and eBay fees aren't included, it is to an AFOL local to my area. I only paid $75 for it so it's an easy profit and as nice as it I'm not really into the modular sets.

The only gifts I've ever given my niece and nephew are Lego. I love watching them play. I dread the day my 6-year-old niece outgrows toys and wants "grown-up" stuff.

Went to my TRU to see if the new Chima or Ninja Turtles sets were there. No sign of Chima, but they did have TMNT. The smallest set, the Krang one, was $18! A 90 piece "small" set for almost $20. Criminal.

Galaxy Quest was all MSRP, though.

Woohoo. T-rex hunter for 34.50 at Walmart. Virtually no legos in stock, found it sitting on an endcap after giving up. That was the set I had hoped to find so made the trip worth it.

^ I hate you. :p

I've been telling everyone I know (who think I'm nuts now) to look for Dino sets for me (I'd like them all for 50% off) but no luck at all, all the stores are wiped out and the other clearance stuff is random. Last year or the year before, I found some decent clearance at one only because the stuff was in return carts and I dug to find some Atlantis sets and TS3 train.

In my experience the Dino sets have been the hardest to find. Only two sets in the eight Walmarts I went to since Christmas. I only went to a couple Targets.

I did have good luck finding sets that must've been returns because the store was wiped clean on the 26th.

I found 3 sets fairly easy at multiple stores, the raptor, triceratops and T-Rex. I didn't want any of them but if I would have known.

Lesbian junkyard and girl on girl jet skiing!

This sounds like a gay old time!


Yep, I went there. ;)

I just like new color bikes, and a lime green tree is different. I almost paid $14 for an ambulance just for a green bike. :lol:

The ambulance is a nice set. Nice minifigs in that to go with the green bike.

I know, I regret not buying it when yoyo had a sale making it $13.59 a few weeks back. I just didn't want to spend that much on a green bike and two awesome mini figures. the guy on the bike is normal junk. :lol:

I have at least three ambulances, a Res-Q one, a great one from about 10 years ago, it looks like an ice cream truck and only cost $8, and at least one more.

That said, when did the stretcher piece become flat on the bottom with no wheel attachments? The big AC set has one with a flat bottom, and the Toy Story army men set has one with where the wheels go, and that set could have used a flat bottom.

The only time a flat bottom is a good thing. ;)

Having recently discussed the ambulance and t-rex sets, it is amazing to me the $20 set has 3 minifigs while the $70 set has only 2. Those Dino sets are all so overpriced it is amazing. I picked up all 4 of the sets I own from the series for 50% off or more so I am not really complaining, they were worth it to me. But how did these sets end up more expensive than licensed ones?

^ The dinosaurs must cost a fortune. It's my problem with some of the sets, even City ones. Then we have Galaxy Squad that's the same way but for no reason. $70 set and three minifigures. It's not a Star Wars set!

Yeah, that's why I'm really impressed with these superhero sets that cost $20 and include three (sometimes exclusive) minifigures. The one with Wolverine, Deadpool, and Magneto might be my favorite set of the year in terms of value. (Of course, I modded the helicopter to include gatling guns and removed the flick-fire missles, so that helps).

I think I might be done with sets... I'll get series 9, and I already picked up some GS sets, but I'll wait for August for Castle to come back.

Unless they pull something else....

I will have to get the golden dragon sometime, and maybe a Kai mech suit or two, but other than that... not much else.

Temple of light looks interesting but I'm still holding out. Just wish the rest of the sets weren't more vehicles.
