Future CMF Series confirmed?

Brickapedia is listing series 9-14 as TBD. Does anyone know if this has been confirmed by TLG or is this speculation?

I would be surprised if they stopped now but also had not heard official confirmation that the line would continue beyond series 8.

Re: 30200 Zombie Coffin Car Available on TRU eBay!

Thanks for the heads up. Too bad $4 shipping kills it for me. Free shipping if you purchase $49 or more, might work out well for some as an add on or of you don't have a TRU near you.

The set names make me think of Starship Troopers and Halo. I bet they will use a varation the CMF Space Marine fig.

Most of my local WMs still carry Friends set. Only one store I know of clearanced them out a couple months ago.

Re: [USA] Wal-Mart Clearance

Definitely some crazy clearances going on. There is no rhyme or reason. yep. After seeing that all the walmarts here had finished their after clearance resets, I went back to the one I had found the $25 Quinjet Battle at and found three more still at the same $25 price! They only had the one before...

Re: [USA] Fry's Electronics Lego Advent Calender Clearance

Sacramento on Northgate had 2 SW, I bought one. One left. No City. The seals were broken on both, the first one I checked had all the bags so I didn't check the other, sorry. This was at about 6-6:30 tonight.

Re: [USA] K-mart additional 50% off clearance toys

This is $23 now online for in store pick-up but there are none within 300 miles of me. Figured I'd post in case someone could get lucky. Might try a pricematch. It's worked before. Often a store will show no stock for the clearance price but have some in store. Worked for me during the last big Kma...

Re: [USA] Wal-Mart Clearance

Any speculation on when the 30% might turn to 50% if it will at all? This is not very specific but I asked an associate that was repricing some of the non-lego toys over the weekend and he said maybe in about a month. So I am guessing end of august first of sept? I don't think wal-mart has a regula...

Re: Target - Summer Clearance

My local targets have like half a row and four endcaps with 70% off various crap toys, and yet they yanked all the 50% off lego that didn't sell and Goodwilled it yesterday instead of dropping it to 70%. The same thing happened at Christmas. I thought it must be a corporate deal with Lego to limit ...

Re: Target - Summer Clearance

Just picked up the last Clone Trooper Battle Pack at my Target for $4.76. Mandalorians were still full price, oddly. The only other Lego in the clearance isle was the Space Shuttle at around $25 each. Last night I found several Mando packs for $9.08 and one last Clone pack for $7.58. I thought it w...

Re: Target - Summer Clearance

Wrong. I found 4 50% off falcons at my local target on Saturday! And I live on the West Side in the South Bay! Nice find. I know they have clearance sets in those areas but, in my experiance, clearanced sets tend to go a lot faster in those areas and are much less likely to get to the 50%-75% range.

Re: Target - Summer Clearance

I guess it's hit and miss in SoCal - I live in Los Angeles, and there was barely anything clearanced in the surrounding local cities. Looks like the boonies are the way to go for stuff. Yes, in my experiance, typically the further out from a major city, the higher the likelyhood of finding the bett...

Re: LEGO S@H Bundles at B&M Stores?

I believe that the free shipping is only if they don't have the item in stock in the store and you need to have an associate put in the free shipping code (which if you look at what they put in, it is usually good for a couple of weeks and can be used at home by anyone). Great, now next time I see ...

Got what appeared to be the last Dino Defense HQ at the store off 8 Mile Rd. in Stockton CA for $33.xx. 70% off their inflated original price of $111.xx. Awesome deal, thanks for the heads up.

Re: Target LEGO mark-ups?

I have notices some Target regularly price Lego and other items, 5-10% over msrp. It seems pretty random but I think generally in nicer areas, maybe to cover higher rent and overhead or maybe just because they can get it.

Re: Kmart online clearance!

It looks like on-line prices are double the prices over the weekend. I think the "additional 50% off" sale is sadly over. Which is too bad since I ordered one other item and they somehow messed it up and it did not go through. Oh well it was nice while it lasted! ETA: I'm not sure about in-store, t...
