I said 'yes, dear' as I placed my order for the Lego Luigi set. :)


Was 'yes dear' after she said 'dont you dare buy any more Lego'?

Well, I did it, Lego bros- I went to 5 Walmarts in the last 24 hours. After careful searching and cross referencing with brickseek I was able to discover...3 looney tunes blind bags...that were still 3 bucks and change. Every shelf was obliterated.

Even more troublesome- the booty call just wanted to walk and then talk in the car afterwards. I think it might be over. This might have been the worst deal day in recent memory.

Pour a Baja blast out for me.

Your experience is why I’ve stopped even trying at my local Walmarts. The inventory is always off and I never find any clearance Lego or video games

This is the straightest thing ever. Booty calls walk and talk and that's the end? Gay guys just fall off the face if the earth.

The booty call may have been having a visit from Aunt Flo. Don't give up hope just yet.

Weirdly the Nintendo VIP thing has been removed from the Lego calendar.

More bad news, the CMF series will be switching over to boxes because they are considered more environmentally friendly. Stupid move.

That's the silliest BS I've heard since Trump left office.  Stops us from feeling them up plain and simple.  

 

Since series 1, all they've ever done is make it harder for us to minimize the cost of collecting a series.  Getting rid of barcodes and then the dots, raising prices, etc.  Fuck Lego if they do this.

Just buy the minifigs you want off eBay … some sellers offer them for $7 or $8 when they first come out. Worth saving gas and time to just get the figures I want IMO … obviously not a great strategy if you want all the figures or a lot of them, but it’s what I did for a couple Looney Tunes figs.

I just buy the whole series and you sometimes can find some great deals. I got 16 of 18 Harry Potter series for $38. All of series 20 for less than $2 each and series 21 was like $2.75 each.

Even now complete Looney Tunes for MSRP and I think it will drop next month before the Marvel ones come out. It's normally when they are cheapest.

I'm hoping the theft and ripped boxes of Vidiyo changes Lego minds. The interviewer was a Minifigures designer so he hasn't really gotten final approval on that. It was an Instagram interview on TipsandBricks I think in case anyone wants to read it.

However if it's the stupidest thing since Trump left office you clearly are at brunch and not listening to Biden being demented and Harris being Harris. Telling brown people not to walk several thousand miles to the USA was the dumbest thing I've heard in awhile.

That could be true.  On the other hand, my kids and I have had good experiences with feeling up bags with other random people and helping each other out.  As much of a chore as it was, it was still kinda fun feeling up bags and finding the ones we wanted.

 

 

Hope they don't start this shit with the Marvel line.

'Not now, not yet... The next few will be in normal packaging'.

So probably next year. Next year Lego is supposed to start to replace the plastic bags in sets with paper.

By 2023, Lego bricks will be cardboard

You didn't see the prototype bricks made from a plastic bottle? because that's what I want, recycled Lego bricks that are overpriced.

Should just make wooden bricks. Would be fitting.

I finally found Vidiyo figures on clearance at Walmart. Still $3, but it's a start.

Update: found some for $2.14

I wish I could get some minifigure deals. I went back to my walmart and they RAISED the looney tunes minifigures from 3.XX to 4.98.

I went on a rampage this morning though- i got a pre-owned voltron, imperial shuttle, and most of the Christmas themed star wars figures from past advent calenders. Fun times.

Bad Batch, Mandolorian ship, Iron Monger, and one train light order placed...free boat and Shang Chi polybag.

 

Now I have to not spend any money at Brickfair tomorrow :shame: .

I regret buying the tree house and Assembly Square back in January could have saved $30 or gotten free boats.

Target is 'remodeling' their stores. So far near me they took away a cafe and seating to stick in cut flowers. That was it. The other just switched the return section and Starbucks. The old Starbucks was just put in 2019.

A few Targets in my area have had a surprising assortment of “rare” LEGO sets including Winnie the Pooh, the Bookshop modular, the Elf House and a bunch of others … if only there were a way to get deeper discounts on those sets, beyond the 5% off.

I’ve been considering picking up the Bookshop to get the sail boat set, but I think I might need to give my wallet a LEGO break until later in the year.

Birthday offers/coupons can get you 10 percent off lego sets at bestbuy but I'm not sure if they're excluded from targets birthday offer. I was able to get 10 bucks off the pooh set and then use rewards certificates so it wasn't too bad.

Every Target Circle offer I get excludes Lego. Maybe there have been exceptions that I’ve missed.

A couple Targets near me have the new Marvel and Star Wars sets out. Also saw the Pooh and Sesame Street sets there. And new Dots and Vidiyo because Lego can’t hit home runs all the time.

It’s only the original ones, castle had indefinitely been oversold since the first go around. I think the only other set was the sailboat that reached 5000.

I got the boat after some issues. I love the ocean. It will look great with the fishing market which I'm so thankful to have.

Lego is such a bad company. Just take preorders for a month and after that month make the amount. This isn't rocket science.
