    I just seems ridiculous and stupid that I have to walk up/down the 28 Target checkout lanes to see if they've received a new poly......only to see the same old Star Wars and City ones hanging there.

    I always feel weird when doing it (even though I still do it) because I can see it looking like I'm just trying to walk down the aisle and look at everyones butts. Not that I mind when there is a nice one to look at =)

    ^Just curious, but what did you have to trade to get that? Your right hand? Firstborn child? I'd imagine that's going to be a very valuable minifigure.

    luckily from a friend so it was traded for the extra exo suit set i was planning to keep sealed.

    I still don't believe Targets polys in the checkout lane idea works. I get the principle behind it...but you see Targets aisles with the same old polys just sitting there. If they really wanted them to sell they'd just put them on a rack in the Lego aisle and they'd all be gone around the Holidays.

    It's a hassle to check. I've learned that my Target never has more than 2 different kinds. So once I've found 2 different ones, then my search is over.

    ^ Poly's at Barnes and Noble? Never seen that before.

    @Jenni, what section?
  • JenniJenni JapanMember Posts: 1,386
    End cap above LEGO advent calendars. Close to board games. There were other stocking stuffers too.
  • Russell844Russell844 California, USAMember Posts: 1,853
    We found 3 on Saturday just sitting on a random table. We found no others in the store anywhere.
  • Ladder19JTKLadder19JTK Hudson ValleyMember Posts: 211
    Which Barnes and Nobles are we speaking of. I've tried three different ones and have come up empty handed.
  • lessjunkfoodlessjunkfood United StatesMember Posts: 62
    ^Ditto here, none found (advent calendars nor polys) in mid-north Indiana.
  • Russell844Russell844 California, USAMember Posts: 1,853
    I was at the store across from Hillsdale Mall in San Mateo, CA.
  • Ladder19JTKLadder19JTK Hudson ValleyMember Posts: 211
    OK. I've tried three stores in the NY/NJ area.

    @Russell844‌ just wonder if the Dublin store would have it, I don't want to drive all the way to San Mateo

    I work in Pleasanton. I can check for you.
  • margotmargot Member Posts: 2,310
    Found in same location in my store, endcap that says Advent calendars.

    Found a couple Tonto's campfire and some Chima polys at a 5 Below this weekend in Rockford, Ill.

    ^ set #?
  • BrickarmorBrickarmor USAMember Posts: 1,257
    #5002144 I'm guessing.
  • margotmargot Member Posts: 2,310
    #30115 Friend's poly at one of my TRUs.
  • lessjunkfoodlessjunkfood United StatesMember Posts: 62
    Found #30116 in the checkout aisles at my local Meijer (Indiana). The hooks had been empty the last couple visits to that store.
  • ChrisbstmChrisbstm USAMember Posts: 151
    #30266 Chima poly at San Diego TRU's.
  • lessjunkfoodlessjunkfood United StatesMember Posts: 62
    Found #30197 at B&N in Indiana. It was on an endcap with advent calendars as mentioned above. Bought the one they had, an employee said they had no more in the store but lots at distributor but weren't scheduled to get more, which I'm guessing isn't the case. At any rate she asked if I wanted to have her order a few & have them held for me once they arrive at the store, and of course I readily agreed. Might want to try this tactic if you're coming up empty at your B&N!
  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,242
    ^ Found them at one near me today as well. The were on an end cap with the advents as well but up in the front in the area next to the registers with other little gifty type stuff. The section looked more like a Hallmark store than the rest of BN.

    I found #30302, #30187 and #30262 at a Kmart in Nashville for $3.99 yesterday.


    Checked the Kmart at Des Plaine's IL but did not have any of the polys. They do have CMF 12 and Lego Friends Poly bag tho.

    Any idea where i can find 30262 in the IL area?

    They had it for a long time at TRU online. I would recommend you fill out the email me when available form. If it comes back online you can go into a TRU and have them order it for you. They will mail it to your house and you don't have to pay shipping.

    Thanks for the Info Margot. Will try it out!

    Found mine on an endcap with the advent calendars. Was not near the other toys and Lego. Was in the "bargain priced" books section.
  • nynohosnynohos Member Posts: 24
    Was that in Kmart Minicoopers11?

  • margotmargot Member Posts: 2,310
    Which set are you talking about?
  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,242
    ^ my guess is #30197 since that is the B&N one.
  • minicoopers11minicoopers11 USAMember Posts: 104

    I received the TRU "Great Big Christmas Book" (Christmas Items catalog) in the mail this afternoon. It states that #30115 will be free with a $30 purchase of LEGO Friends and/or Disney Princess Sets. Interestingly, however, it does not state when this promotion will begin.
  • scotty12scotty12 United States, IowaMember Posts: 688
    ^ I noticed that also, but then again #30115 has been at my TRU for a couple of weeks now for $4.99. I picked up a couple on the 18th during the Bat Signal build and my TRU is usually a week or two behind most other TRU in getting polys.

    Weird, my Target just stocked the front shelves with #30265 instead of #30264...have yet to see that one.
  • RonyarRonyar Member Posts: 365
    ^ mine did as well. Surprised to see it so soon after it was a freebie from shop at home.
  • red237red237 Member Posts: 281
    My Target had the Batwing Poly #30301 on clearance for $1.99 in the Halloween section.

    In addition to the Batwing #30301 on clearance for $1.99, I also found the Arctic Scout #30310 for $1.74 in the Halloween section at Target, which was quickly being overrun by Christmas decorations.

    #30265 Worriz' Fire Bike had also been stocked by the registers.

    Meijer has launched their Xmas stocking stuffer section. They will have:
    #30244 Anakin's Jedi Intercepter
    #30229 Repair Lift
    Series 3 Mixels

    They didn't discount Series 1 Mixels after last Xmas, so it would be surprising to find Series 3 discounted this year.

    I didn't notice if they would have S12 minifigs in the holiday section this year.
