I stopped by the TRU in Northborough, MA last night and grabbed a few Series 3 Mixels that were marked down. I also found a 41510 Mixel Lunk set which rang up $0.03!!!

Stopped by Target tonight to see if they had any of the new June sets out yet (they did not) and, in the action figure aisle (weird location!), I noticed two 79103 Turtle Lair Attack sets sitting with the TMNT toys. This is very bizarre because I'm in that Target a lot and have never seen this set there, especially not with the rest of the Legos. They were priced at $44.99, and since that set is OOP I decided to get it. On a whim, I pulled out my phone to pricematch it, checked the WalMart app...and found it listed for $9!!!

Needless to say, I grabbed both of them, marched up to customer service in triumph and bought them both for $18 total. Very happy with that find!!

#60036 Arctic Base Camp (City) clearance $45 (retail 89.99) there were at least 4 on the shelf
#70808 Super Cycle Chase (Movie) clearance $17.50 (retail 49.99) I bought the last one on the shelf (unless more pop up)
#21107 Minecraft Micro World: The End clearance $17 (retail 29.99) at least 6 on the shelf

These were in Richmond KY (Toy aisle closest to electronics department)

... and phantasmo33... I'm very jealous of your find and happy for you

I happened to walk into my local Walmart today, while the toy manager was marking down products. Below is what I walked away with after she offered to lower prices, after she saw me scan items on the scanner and put them back:
70146, Fire Temple: $43.39
70725 Mechdragon $31.20
70145 Ice Mammoth $36.07 x2
79117 Ninja Turtle Lair Invasion $36.07
76022 X-Men vs. Sentinel $12.19 x2
76013 Joker Steam roller $24.36

Beat to hell boxes she said they were going to throw away (not donate) if no one bought them soon:
70753 Lava Falls $5.18
75072 ARC-170 Starfighter $6.48
75076 Republic Gunship $6.48
60072 Demolition Starter Set $4.80
31032 Creator Red Creatures $7.30

I paid 40.7% of MSRP. Very happy.

Wow and to think I was happy to find it for $80 in may at the LEGO store. I was afraid I would miss getting it entirely so I thought a 20% discount was good, but you seriously scored! Well done!

I found a Lego Arctic Batman vs. Mr Freeze for $5.98 at a local Target. Don't know what corner that thing has been sitting in.

It was more patience. It's been on Clearance at 25% off for weeks, I was just wiling to wait until it dropped lower.

Brick & Blue... have you tried Bricks & Pieces? I only recently discovered it. I'm pretty sure that all minifigures from Toxic Meltdown are available there. If you want multiples of any (like the guy in the hazmat suit) this is a great way to get them. I think the guy in hazmat would only be $4.50ish plus shipping. You are probably aware of Bricks & Pieces already but I wanted to mention it just in case.

I finally got my hands on the tatooine mini build from star wars celebrations that my aunt and uncle brought back for me. I offered them money, but they said it was a gift!

Awesome! Congratulations.

I think I made the Steal of a Deal of a lifetime last Friday. I saw a 70124 Eagle Legend Beast on the shelf of the Northborough TRU after they'd been out for a while. I brought it over to the scanner and it came up $0.03!!!! I ended up buying it along with a few other sets.

Nice gift! Either they had a VIP/Medical Badge or camped out overnight to get it...or payed more than retail.

Either way. Keep the box to display it with :up:
