my son and I are about halfway through it, very cool set 

 

My polypartner/date/friend/? and I are building the fishing market, really simple build, no weird building techniques but yikes are the directions odd. It looks like everything is one plate off so it's very confusing to them as it's only their second set. They have expensive taste. But they are really slow so at one set of bags a day, once a week, we will be done March. :lol:

I think the boat will be the next set we do as I think it will look awesome next to the Fishing Market / Shop.

I bought one the other day but it wasn't $2. I didn't see the Emmet one they're supposed to have. Need to go to Target and see what they have so far.

 

 

My Walmart clearance rummage, wish I could find a $40 First Order Star Destroyer.

How much was the Powderpuff sets normally? The $20 or $30 one? 

And how much was that Friends Camper in the top right? I bought that set in April 2015. :lol:

Check your Walmarts today.  Clearance prices dropped at about half the stores around here.  Kessel Run Falcon for $80 with a rare store or two at $30!  Other clearance sets dropping to close to 50% off.

 

Drove to the store with the $30 Falcons early this morning.  While parking, I saw the same guy who was buying all the Target clearance last week rolling out with a cart overfilled with Legos.  Of course, no Falcons to be had.  Just hope they were gone before he got there.

 

Good luck.

I don't know about any of these legitimately great deals some people are finding, but one store has the Elves turtle set for $13, which is good enough for me to go pick it up. Hoping some of those "check price in store" end up being better than expected.

Picked up the power girl set for $15, it was the $30 set, I think I got the trailer for $7.

 

FYI ackbar, you can check the price with walmart app in store, I went to 7 different stores to get all that. Some stores were a bust, I got most from one store though.

 

EDIT: These photos are from brickpicker, these guys are ruthless.

When did the new Walmart Clearance start? I went buy one in the middle of no where the other day and was asked if I needed to stop, I said no. It has a bunch of great stuff, I should have stopped.

Started last week and I guess went down even more today, Husher did mention it.

Just got an at-hauler for $49 and tangled carriage for $17.

Did see the one with the mammoth for $60 but still too expensive.

Oh good, then it probably was only 30% off which is nothing. My closest Walmarts have NOTHING. One 20 miles from me has $80 Boost and one 15 miles the other way has the HP Hall for $50, so I'm debating which I want more. :lol:

Did another run, got Indominous Rex for $64, Imperial Transport for $35, Camper Van for $25, Friendship house for $30, Thors Quest was $7, Rhino Face off was $9 and a handful of other small sets.

 

No Harry Potter, Pirate Roller Coaster, Millenium Falcon or First Order Star Destroyer. =(

Went to two, and both had pretty much nothing.

Shortest Walmart clearance ever.

Check last night and a Walmart near me had the HP Hall for $50, a few within 100 miles had. This store had 2. Today I checked as I'll be in the area and the price is back to $100. All of them in the area are.

Holy shit guys, I actually found some in store Lego clearance AND bought some. Picked up the Elves Turtle set (41191) for $13, Luke and Rey with a big rock (75200) for $19 and Modular Sweet Surprises (31077) for $17. They also had Metalbeard and Unikitty packs for $2 so picked up some of those. All and all probably my biggest Lego pickup in a day in a couple years. I passed on the Jurassic World big wall for $65. I was tempted, but the wall is ugly and the dinosaurs are ugly. Probably worth it for resale in the future, but whatever. They also had the purple dragon Elves set (41193) for $25 and lots of Star Wars (largely Solo) sets for 30% off.

I couldn't get my date to stop at Walmart, they hate Walmart so much. :lol:

I really need to pick up several of those Metalbeards as they are the best Movie 2 set out right now.

Target was a disaster, they are completely redoing the toy section in my store. Had the HP two pack Brickheadz with the gay Wizard for $14 an Yoda's space ship for $14 also.

Thanks for the heads up on the Wally World clearance. I stopped in this morning on my way to work and the associates were marking down all of the Lego clearance. I didn't get anything too exciting (Harry Potter was already gone at 25% off) but I grabbed some nice smaller sets for birthday parties this year. Lots of lego city and lego star wars. None of the big star wars sets

Target and Amazon have the Mountain Police Stater Pack for $5. Great deal for 4 minifigures, awesome hat with hair piece, the beehive, gold bars and a printed cut piece of wood round tile.

1 down, 4 to go.  It was actually a present for my kids, but I'm loving it more.  Out of all the sets I've put together, it's probably my favorite so far.  Nostalgia probably has a lot to do with that.

Yea, it's a pretty cool set. My only gripe is that the feet don't stay flat in Voltron form. You can see why in your second pic. So I have 5 lions on the shelf instead of Voltron.

I read something about the knees not articulating either.

Yea, but it's understandable, since it does weigh a good deal. But having to stand on the edge of the feet is bad for display.

I was able to pick up Luke's Landspeeder at Walmart for $9 and the Tatooine Battle Pack for $5. That should help fill out my MF display.

I was hoping to find the bounty Hunter pack too for $5, but none are near me.

Here is my setup.  The lions mostly hide the not flat feet.

Nice score! The Walmart I should have went to last Friday has the Tatooine one for $3. That and the Bountry Hunters one are the only ones I really want.

My mom just called to say they are literally putting the clearance out at the Target she is in. $17 for the Friends Pizza Shop, $23 for a Elves 'Glow in the dark' like green color castle, $8.50 for a Minecraft set.

Yes....
And completely crazy. :lol: My mom would call when I was living in NY. I told my ex and every time he would go 'It must be important, pick up!', every time I told him it was about some LEGO sale. It was.

She be more awesome if she used the correct pronouns with my poly-partner. :lol:

Also Target is no longer doing 15%, 30%, 50%, 70%. The Elves set was $28, 60% off, the Minecraft set was 58% off.

EDIT - I haven't watched any of the Marvel films since the first (boring AF) Avengers movie. Just finished Black Panther and now I really want the Rhino set with the Golden Jaguar now that it's no longer $12 and impossible to find. :D

Uni-kitty blind bags have hit a $1 at some Walmarts.

 

(Only posting this to see if GG rants cause I remember him saying how he already got most of them.)

I do have them all and about two dozen extras. However around me they are $2 which is the most I have spent on them anyways.

I haven't paid full price of minifigures since I bought 19 Batman 1 series for $76 at Target which you can buy the whole set for less than $50 now on eBay. Bay is really the way to go.

But to not let you down...
Fucking Walmart! Fuck! Fuck! Fuck!!!! Grrrr..... Fucking fucker fucks!

Lego missed the mark with these...lotta full boxes sitting around even at $2.

I haven't seen them, but the only places that seem to get more than a box of minifigures is Walmart and I can't remember the last time I was in one. Because to be fair 'Fucking Walmart' could be said at almost any time.

I think LEGO made a mistake by not doing 16 characters in the bag, and also because you couldn't tell which is which is which no adult who only wants 1-2 will but 30 of them hoping to get the two they want.

I'll go to Walmart when they hit $1 as long as it's not snowing, I bike everywhere.
