Thanks TRU.
Similar thing happened to me a month ago. They rung it up for one penny.

Read the post about discontinued 10188's last night and ordered 4 this am, one to actually build and three to 'let grow' for a while....... then I see that they are available again on amazon. Oh well, they can't be around too much longer, can they?
My latest steals were T/S Lotso's dump truck for $7, T/S Duplo Jessie for $5 and a couple S/W midi scale star destroyers for $10.
Happy Building, Brian

Got the following off Craigslist from one guy:

#10190 Market Street, no box, but with instructions
#10182 Cafe Corner. no box or instructions
#10179 1st edition Millennium Falcon w/ certificate of authenticity, original box and spiral bound instructions
#2009 Employee gift Heart
#4899 City Tractor x3
#7305 Scarab Attack
#7804 Lizard
#7949 Prison Carriage Rescue x3
#40009 Holiday Building Set x5

Everything else was unopened. Prices were VERY reasonable and feel like I got an awesome deal. Never thought I would get the first three, but can cross those off my life list!

Very nice evil, I'm jelous =) I want Market Street and Cafe corner, but not gonna pay the blackmail on Ebay.

I ran into a nice little deal myself. Got this Lego Chess set for $80 shipped. Used 1 time. Sorry for the blurry picture, my camera is not the best, nor is my picture taking ability.

I have mixed feelings about new releases: I can't wait to see and get the new sets... but I can't figure out where I'm gonna put them or store them.

@ Luciant....this guy sold them at an unbelievable price and am glad he did, because , like yourself, there was no way I was going to pay the inflated rates on ebay for the first three on my list above....Lego gods were smiling upon me.

PS. Nice chess set!

Bought five 7949 Prison Carriage Rescues at Walmart today on sale for $5 each. Forgetting the other pieces, that's 20 knights and horses for $1.25 each. Nice addition to the castle armies.

Now I just need the Star Wars Snowtrooper battle packs to go on sale...
