Re: [USA] K-Mart LEGO Clearance

No dice on clearance sets at the 2 K-marts closest to me. They had plenty of all the sets mentioned, but they were all still normal price.

I might check back next weekend.

Re: Target selling discontinued Castle Set

So for those of you who laughed your butt off at me: There is a turn-around point to my story. I went back to Target today (they still had the set in stock) and at the suggestion of a family member I told the customer service employee that I paid $100.99 for a set that they had for $64.99.... Well ...

Re: What sets are so good you've paid full price to get?

I buy most sets at full price, I'm too impatient to wait for a sale when the new sets come out.

When the sets do go on sale or clearance I buy them for resale. All the profits go back into buying sets at full price when they first come out. It's a vicious circle. ;)

Re: 4900 found at Target

One of my local Targets(Olathe, KS) had at least 8-10 in each aisle. None anywhere else in the store.

Re: [POLL]When will you buy the new 2010 Summer LEGO Star Wa

I checked the first option, but it's not entirely true. I don't mind full price on most of them, but I will not pay $50 for Cad Bane's speeder. Good thing it's at Target so I'm sure there will be a sale on it soon.

Re: Steal of a Deal (the thread for braggin')

Just ordered 6 of the ARC-170s from Samsclub.com for less than a Ben Franklin. Now I just have to decide how many to keep.

Re: Lego Star Wars ARC-170 8088 $12.80

My membership expired last month and I was on the fence about renewing it. Well, this just pushed me over. Renewed and bought 3 for less than what 2 would have cost. I should have bought a couple more, but I really don't want to blow my entire toy wad with the SW summer sets just around the corner. ...

Re: Star Wars 6211 ....

Personally I would get the missing pieces and assemble it. It's a decent set and really looks good on display.

Or get the missing pieces and sell it as a whole set minus the minifigs.

Re: How high will the UCS MF 10179 get?

I see sealed sets hitting as high as 1200, and then settling at around 1000 in a few years.

I'm really wishing I would have bought a few more when I got mine for $375 shipped.

Looks like I'll be needing to clear a spot to display it. Beautiful.

I hope we see more true minifig scale ships in the future.

Re: What lego did I buy today thread

I finally filled a few gaps in my collection with the 6208 B-Wing and 4479 Tie Bomber, they just showed up yesterday. :D

Have a few auctions ending tonight that I hope to pick up some more older sets I'm missing.

I think I have 3 or 4 of them now. Got one with a Club magazine and the rest with legoshop orders.

Re: 2010 LEGO Star Wars Accessories

So I have a "trap door" in my house that I keep a padlock on. I'm thinking the key to that lock will need an Ackbar Keychain just for irony's sake.

Nevermind, I guess it was an Atlantis set that I never did receive and Lego is sending me out another one.

Score one for Lego Customer Service.

I've never been into or had any lego trains but I'm thinking that now might be as good of a time as any to get into them. Some pretty cool looking sets coming out.

I never really cared for Bionicle and this looks to be the same thing just with a different story. I won't be buying any unless I need a specific part out of a set for something.

But it could be a good cash cow for TLG which is good for any fan. At 8 bucks a piece I bet they sell a ton of them.

Re: Soon to be Discontinued - LEGO 10179 Millenium Falcon

My wife picked it up for me while it was on sale. She keeps telling me to quit spending so much money on Legos but then she'll turn around and order me that set(which she got for 375 shipped) or recently she got me the Dropship.

She's such an enabler. :lol:
