Re: The Price Of Lego

One thing that makes this unreliable, is that many of the MSRP prices used on brickset and other sources for Lego sets in the 80s and 90s come from the Shop-at-home catalog, which were priced higher than normal in the stores, because at that time, Lego did not charge S&H and that cost was part of th...

Re: Be Cautious of

I noticed at all the Wal-Marts around me that they put the sets in the clearance section with a red price tag and it is still full price! My dad always complains to the management when he sees this blatant false advertizing being repeated over and over again (without any effort to make any changes b...

Re: [USA] Target: S3 CMF 50% off - $1.49

I found two, but they were thrown in an end isle in the toy section. But they were originally found in the Valentine section, so that is probably why these two still remained.

Re: [USA] Amazon.com LEGO PoP Ostrich Race - 50% off

You made an typo -- Ostrich Race is normally 19.99.

Also, I noticed that the LEGO Atlantis Gateway of the Squid (8061) is 19.99 (instead of normal 39.99)
