Tried to get two palpatines arrest online and it wouldn't let me. However I was near a tru and went in. They sold me both, with the sale at $76, got both for $123. Don't usually purchase fro tru on bigger sets, but couldn't pass it up. Thanks for the info, no way I was gonna pay full price for it, especially at tru. Split the purchase with another builder.

Sale for Y wing and Palpatines arrest ended Monday.
Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?

I thought I saw on the sales sign they had posted in the store that the Y-wing was on sale until early March. I didn't check the Palpatine sign. But today a friend of mine went to the store and said everything was marked back to TRU prices.

Megabloks I can understand, but markup on Kre-o? Those things do not even sell at 50% off and they want to mark them up? What ever stuff the manager of that store is smoking, I want some.

I shopped here tonight and the Star Wars advent calendar, marked down to $23.99, worked with this deal. I bought one calendar and the second item, a battle pack was 50% off. They were sort of low on stock and they told me this Friday at tore opening they will be restocked. This was the Alpharetta, GA store.

The new banner says also excludes Hard to Find items, so modulars and the like are omitted. It was only a matter of time. Otherwise, all of their prices are so marked up, a good deal with 50% off the second is still hard to find.

Hard to find was in the small print in the initial banner. The modulars have been excluded this entire sale.

However, lately there have been several B1G1 40% off sales on modulars immediately following the regular B1G1 50% sales...

They have a few "Hard to Find' items listed on their EBay store. The buy one get one 50% has been extended to their EBay store as well. I was able to pick up 2 Volkswagon Camper Van's (10220) for $208 shipped.

Speaking of the camper van...I just saw an eBay listing that shows the van, but the auction says extra parts, bus not included in title...clearly some people got excited and did not read closely, as a dozen or so tiny extra parts from this build are going for $31! I hope the buyer realizes this before paying. I too have bid on crap before I got the hang of it.

Checked my local TRU in Central Cali today and they had mistakenly left out two cases of the new Iron Man 3 sets, 1 was the boat set w/War Machine, the other the Malibu penthouse set w/Mandarin and Pepper Potts. Former was $25, latter was $50. Tried to snag them as they rang up at the scanner as under BOGO, but was stopped at the register by an employee that knew all about the street date which is March 1st.

I overheard a worker say she caught 1 case before it hit the aisles, so I'm guessing that was the remaining of the 3 new IM3 sets that I didn't see.

These sets look awesome, I can't wait to pick them up. War Machine and his shoulder cannon look superb! IF regular retail is $20 and $40, it would be a great deal imo as the smaller set has 3 minifigs while the larger set has 5 minifigs.

The TRU ebay store-front is sure a curious place. Bricktober sets are available for purchase, and qualify for the BOGO. And, there is no limit on the number of Vampire Castles per order---2 for $165+tax. The BOGO only applies once per order, though.

I found two Alien Conquest: Alien Mothership sets on clearance for half off and stacked it with the BOGO offer.

Says the offer is no longer valid on their ebay store (despite being on the front page of said store).

I found only one series 9, didn't buy it, wasn't chicken suit guy.

However they had the little green GS polybag for only 3.50$ so I bought 6 for $16 and change after tax.

I also bought an Alien Conquest Mothership and a Cars V8 for $60ish! So happy. It was the last Alien Conquest set I needed, and the only Cars set I needed / wanted.

Kodiak, how were you able to get the Darth Mauls? It doesn't allow me to put them in the cart!

Ordered late last night and noticed it went through today. Looks like they are out of stock now. When I ordered it said items would not ship without some type of purchase. Gave it a try and poof 3 reg price 2 at 50% off limit of 5 total.

Seriously? I bought my son the War Machine set this past Monday - I didn't realize they were technically unavailable still. It's a cool little set.
