Re: NEW Pick a Model Experience at your local LEGO Brand Sto

I saw this last week at Arden Fair. Only for the less sophisticated buyer who doesn't figure out you could spend $5 for about 50 pieces, or $9 for enough pieces in a pick-a-brick cup to make several copies of the model.

Re: Target 20% off disney princess, ninjago, city, and duplo

Cartwheel 10% toys seems to be working on all the Disney Princess.

Re: Target 20% off disney princess, ninjago, city, and duplo

I never have anything new to contribute, so I'm proud to report that the Cartwheel app additional 10% off toys WORKED on Elsa's Castle, even though it says Lego is excluded! No other Lego I tested would allow the discount, even a clearance Agents set. Better hurry before Target fixes it, and Elsa's ...

Re: Walgreens and should-be-clearance items

Walgreens is home to very, very old toys. Recently my son was thrilled to pay MSRP for a Nerf gun that was discontinued 7 years ago. The website is inaccurate for finding Lego stock in stores though.

Re: Target winter clearance

Finally found a large amount of 50% off Steamrollers and TMNT Mutation Chamber in Folsom. I hit most other Targets in the area, very little left but Bionicle and Technic, and nothing over 30%.

Re: Target winter clearance

All you guys complaining about nothing reaching 70%. Endcaps here in Sacramento have been piled full of 15% to 30% off for WEEKS! I'd love to find anything at 50% off.

Re: 30256 Chima Iceklaw at TRU

Starting today they are free with a $30 purchase, according the the weekly ad.

*confirmed, I went through the line twice, buying half-price clearance Galaxy Quest sets to get the 30256 Chima set free each time.

Re: Target winter clearance

I too have found some stores have 30% off on the same items that are only 15% off in other stores. Sabertooth Tribe is 6.99 (30% off) at Madison Ave Target Sacramento, and Ultra Agents Tremor Track is 13.98 (30%). X-men Sentinel, TMNT and Joker Steamroller are pretty universally 30% off in Sacrament...

Re: August 2014 LEGO Brand Stores & LEGO Shop Promotions

I predict the mini-cooper promo will have greater resale value than the spaceman. I sold last year's VW van promo sealed for $30 a few months back. That's how I justify my purchases to my spouse anyway.

Just wanted to give a heads up that these two promotions are currently stackable on lego.com with a $99 purchase. I pulled the trigger on a backordered SW Cantina to do it last night. FREE Exclusive MINI Cooper Mini Model with purchases of $99 or more! FREE Exclusive Chima Worriz Fire Bike with purc...

Re: The Simpsons LEGO Contest 2014 Winners

The right two won. Congratulations! I never thought my entry stood a chance, but when no one else made the brewery toward the end, I felt I at least owed a submission to this forum that has sent me nice prizes in the past.

Re: TeeFury LEGO Shirt We are Star Stuff for $11

Limited run screen prints I've bought lately from TeeFury, Qwertee, popuptee have all been high-quality, usually on Gildan brand shirts. Don't confuse them with lower quality on-demand printing like cafe press. Entirely different process.

Re: [USA] Walmart LEGO Clearance Summer 2013

Definitely YMMV, but the Sacramento Walmart on El Camino Ave. had a full case of series 11 minifigs for $2 each, and a couple sets like Mirkwood Spiders for $21. I never even saw the minifigs in that store before they hit the clearance shelf.

Re: 10% off coupon on Fall 2013 Catalog

I found this thread after getting burned at the Lego store. After making a special trip to pick up the new Winter Village set, I put it back on the shelf when I was told of the new exclusion policy. I'll watch amazon or elsewhere, because this guy doesn't pay retail. I sent a nastygram to corporate.

Re: LEGO 21105 The Village & 21106 The Nether

I just don't see the appeal of these sets... lots of 1x1s, common colors, no unique pieces, overpriced. At least I can try to cash in on the crazy wave this time. You'll have to ask a kid about the appeal. The printed character faces can be considered unique pieces, and they sell individually for a...
