Re: 75053 Ghost 19.88 at B&M Walmart

Walmart is known to accept a fake $200 bill but called police on someone who tried to use a genuine $100 bill (and even ripped them, a felony IIRC). From a store who keeps covering up use-by date with newer date so it'd seem like product hadn't expired yet (ever try a week-old doughnut? Hope you got...

75053 Ghost 19.88 at B&M Walmart

Yes, the $90 set #75053 that just came out was selling at Walmart for under $20. It was due to an ad error, the picture they used is for Ghost but it was supposed to be for 75048 Phantom set that normally goes for $25. I picked up the last one they had at one store and when I went to check out, it r...

Re: [US] ToysRUs.com MSRP

Does TRU get hosed by Lego when it comes to pricing? I can't see why they screw everyone so badly when it comes to Lego product. I asked at one of my local Lego stores and they said something about 3rd party retailers selling items before the Lego official street date and penalties being assessed. ...

Re: Target - Summer Clearance

I tried a store I hadn't been to in a while, they had lots of LEGO Star Wars sets on sale. But I am insulted by the sale price. Bounty Hunter ship: sale $43.74 (was $62.49) T-6 shuttle: sale $52.49 (was $74.99) Sith Infiltrator: sale $61.24 (was $87.49) Millennium Falcon: sale $122.49 (was $174.99) ...

Re: [USA] LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley on sale for $10 off

If you open it and find bags inside are opened, it's possible they were returned boxes. There are dishonest people who carefully open the box to remove special parts or minifigs, reseal the box, and return it for full refund.

Monkey see, monkey do. Toys R Us have been doing this for ages, jacking their price so the sale looks good to people who don't know the MSRP.

No VIP mail yet and the nearest one is about 90 minutes drive. I did a quick "shopping" online after logging in and threw in a Death Star, no free shipping at all. :/

Re: Target - Summer Clearance

Would need someone who works inside TRU or Target that can check the MSRP and compare to clearance sale price, then blow whistle to get lawsuit started. There's always the risk of getting fired for blabbing to the public but many people who were fired have won whistleblower lawsuit, which means gett...

Re: [USA] Wal-Mart Clearance

I didn't pick up anything as my bricklink store's a bit full atm but I happened to check Walmart in Howell, MI and they had several HP sets and Black Pearl on clearance sale. BP scanned at $79 and I didn't check the rest but it's likely the same 30% off price that's been reported a lot in the past m...

Re: Steal of a Deal / Recent LEGO Purchases

My local Goodwill (all 4 of them) don't send anything for online sale, everything goes to the floor. Some of the items can be priced a little high-I once saw a huge IBM PS/2 tower with 286 CPU for $250 last year. However I do find a lot of LEGO, usually new set missing minifig (stolen probably from ...

One Walmart only had a few AC left all in mashed box with split seam :/ Another Walmart had 33 of the Hogswart set 4867 (only 1 had suspicious seal) and bought 32 of them. They also had one big HP castle se...

I think those boxes are going to get thrown out. The few non-clearance sets on that rack were all opened and some completely empty. Pilfered by shoplifters. :cry:

It happens a lot but usually the thief gets busted. Snipped from NBC news about the current scam by VP of Palo Alto: This is not the first case of a LEGO bar code scam.

Re: Kmart online clearance!

I tried for the deal but one local Kmart screwed me 6 different ways. It seems their online inventory did not match the actual on hand stock. That is: I ordered 6 sets (plus $5 off coupon for order over $45) but they couldn't find ONE at all. Either it was stolen (bar code switch or just walked out ...

Re: Amazon - 7592 Construct A Buzz $10 + Shipping

9 out of 10 times they are still in LEGO section. Once in a while they move it to make room for new LEGO sets so do check clearance section if the shelf contains the latest LEGO sets already.

My local Walmart finally had some stuff on clearance sale. I bought out all the $7 Forbidden Forest save for 2 that were crushed badly and had busted seam, could be missing pieces. Also I picked up $25 Hagrid's Hut, $30 Hogwarts Castle (smaller version) and $89 Hogwarts Castle (big version). I left ...
