[USA] Target Clearance Finds Summer 2013

Post by Shadesofpemberley » Fri Jul 05, 2013 11:06 am

Surprised to find a few sets on clearance at my local target today (Sacramento CA area). 9471 Uruk-hai Army (25.48) and 79001 Escape From Mirkwood Spiders ($25.48) plus the Mines of Moria set were all marked 15% off. I also spotted some Sponge Bob Squarepants sets also 15% off. Here's hoping they get marked down again in the coming weeks.

Spotted 79104 at 50% off in Hillsboro, Oregon. Too bad I don't like this line. Didn't get any but counted at least 4 on the shelves.

Its the TMNT Shellraiser set. Ditto on the find...saw a bunch of those @ 50% in the Chesapeake Sq. Mall store here in Virginia. I think I remember reading over at Brickset that this set was being recalled by Lego due to instability issues or the like. Maybe thats the reason for the clearance.

went to 4 targets today. Prisoner Transport, Mines of Moria, Vampire castle, Vampire hearse, Attack of the Wargs, Mirkwood Spiders, Hero Factory green motorcycle guy, ALL LEGO GAMES(Hobbit etc), Museum Break-in, and a bunch others (galaxy wars etc) were marked down from 15% to 30%. Hid a bunch all around the store to see them get to 70%.

there are like 12 more Targets in my area, I will check them all tomorrow. I think this sale just started today BTW. Guys were marking them with guns as my girlfriend walked into one store.

Same here, in Coral Springs, FL. There were a couple (minor) discounts on some 2012 City, MF, Creator, and the Quinjet sets, but nothing too good.

What area are you in? It is most helpful to others if you post in your profile where you live or mention it in you post. ;-)

I'm in Northern Virginia and the Target here had only 15% on many sets - most mentioned in above post. I bought a Friends small set or around $7 but left the rest. Hope later in week or so the discounts will be better so I can grab one of the Monster Fighter castles.

Found one of the newly released castle sets, 70404 King's Castle, marked down 30%. I think the set looks mehhh. for a newly released set marked down that deep and the only one on the shelf, I couldn't walk away empty handed.

tl;dr 30% off King's Castle, bought the last one.

Hi, ezra,
Did the King's Castle have a clearance sticker on it, or did you have to scan it to see the lower price?

Had the sticker on it. I didn't bother to scan it. Cashier rung it up, no hassle, no problem.

sorry i live on the west coast. Also yesterday I found Shellraiser for 30% off marked down to 41$ from 60$. The new fire truck lego city set with the house thats on fire (27$ marked down from 40$) Sith Fury interceptor for 71$ marked down from 89.99$ and Malevolence for 101$ marked down from 120$. All of these were only at a single target, whereas most of the other stuff in my first post were at all Targets.

Grapevine, TX update:

Nothing too exciting, but I needed Vermin Vaporizer, so I bit on that :)

I checked the Framingham, MA store last night. The only thing I saw was the Hobbit game marked down to $25.

These new Castles being marked down is giving me a brain freeze. Moria and Mirkwood aren't worth it until they hit 50%. On a side note, my TRU keeps their Lego backstock on a high shelf, and the same 20+ Moria sets have been sitting there as long as I can remember.

The sold out, no point. Only had 1-2 sets on clearance anyway.

Went to the Target in Niles, Il. A couple of space big obliterators $56, some hero factory bags for $9, some SW planets for $7. Hobbit game $25, and the 3 in 1 helicopter for around $10. Not interested in any so left them all.
