    That was it. 30116. I think that there were 3 or 4 in the box and I bought 2 of them.

    No Tumblers here in ST Louis either. Still waiting.

    I see at least 5 in your near future. ;o)

    The funny thing about the Easter polys at Target are that they are in the "$5 & under" section.
  • margotmargot Member Posts: 2,310

    @margot‌, do you still need the Tumbler?

    Haven't seen any here yet!

    I found a Rapunzel poly today at Walmart. They had a few of them. It rang up at $3.97, which I think is reasonable.

    Found Mixels at Walmart today for $4.97 and I see Target has had a "Price Drop" on the Friends poly...now down to $4.99.

    Apparently the Friends Bakery poly will be free with any Friends purchase at the LEGO store in April.

    Yes Rapunzel is at Walmart along with Stephanie's Garden.
  • Russell844Russell844 California, USAMember Posts: 1,810
    If I can't find any Rapunzels locally, I might be interested in trading some Tumblers for some of them.
  • margotmargot Member Posts: 2,310
    I just found Tumblers today! But I will be happy to pick up some Rapunzels for you. They didn't seem to have too many and I will be back tomorrow am for some clearance negotiating so just let me know...
  • margotmargot Member Posts: 2,310
    Correction to what I said above, I found #30112 flower stand, not Stephanie's garden (don't know where that came from..) at Walmart.
  • Russell844Russell844 California, USAMember Posts: 1,810
    Are these being found in the LEGO section, the Friends section, or the Easter section?
  • goshe7goshe7 Columbus, Ohio, USAMember Posts: 515
    ^Neither section at the store I checked... Waiting patiently for now.
  • margotmargot Member Posts: 2,310

    I found them in the Lego section, but I wouldn't be surprised to find them in the Easter section of some stores. They are in the typical Easter poly display box if that makes sense.

    I found Rapunzel, Stephanie's Bakery Stand and the flower stand polys all at Walmart in the lego friends section today. They were new enough that they didn't show a price when I scanned them. I believe they were all $3.97, but only bought Rapunzel so can't be sure.
  • starfire2starfire2 Phoenix AZMember Posts: 1,298
    Has anyone found them in Phoenix AZ and if so, which location?
  • BlueTacoBlueTaco MarylandMember Posts: 78
    It was a couple of days ago (Thursday), but the Laurel Target had the Tumbler poly at the register and the Walmart across the street had #30116 #30112 and #30113. Walmart had those three polybags in the Friends section.
  • margotmargot Member Posts: 2,310
    They are in a Friend's display so it does make sense that they are in the Friend's section.

    I found all 3 at a Walmart in North Phoenix.

    I picked up a pile of 30183 Creator Little Car for $1 each at a rural Walmart.

    Finally found the Tumbler in Lexington, KY.
  • scotty12scotty12 United States, IowaMember Posts: 685
    Anyone happen to have the dcpi number for the Batman Tumbler #30300? I have yet to find it at either of my Target stores. Or any Easter polys at WM. Argh!
  • starfire2starfire2 Phoenix AZMember Posts: 1,298
    @scotty12 the dpci is 204000291. I might be able to get you some. I work at a Target store in Phoenix AZ. Let me know
  • scotty12scotty12 United States, IowaMember Posts: 685
    ^ Thanks! I let you know!

    I finally found tumblers ion St. Louis.
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 9,305
    Did not realize this but I went over to TRU to look at the polys as I have two 5 dollar rewards point coupons (which expire on the 15th, thanks TRU) so I decided to buy a couple of those super secret police enforcers and cashed in the coupons. Confused the cashier though as they apparently deduct from the coupons before Tax (which makes sense) but I basically got them for 0 dollars, no tax paid.
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    @madforLEGO unlike VIP points you can spend your tru coupons on things that cost up to the amount and walk out paying nothing. I've done it a few times for polybags, feels nice.
  • murphquakemurphquake Member Posts: 651
    Found #30271 at Funny Business in Nyack, NY http://funnybiz.co/ on Wednesday. The store is owned by two members of I LUG NY, great guys all around. They got this, The LEGO Movie Piece of Resistance Poly & the Laketown Guard after telling their rep at NY Toy Fair they wanted to sell polybags. They ship so you can get them direct from them if you're interested. I didn't grab one at the time but will get it in a few days and get some pics of the contents.

    2 Friends and 1 Rapunzel at Walmart in Niles, IL.
  • RomanticWarriorRomanticWarrior United StatesMember Posts: 248
    Finally got the Batman Tumbler (Columbus, OH)

    After reading Brickset, I've found that I live in a terrible area for LEGO shopping. I'm jealous ;)

    I was at my regular Walmart yesterday, and all of their Rapunzel stash was just gone. I couldn't find them or the Friends sets they were displayed with. I'm hoping to grab another one or two just to have for the kiddos or for trades or something.
  • binaryeyebinaryeye USMember Posts: 1,734

    Same in central Illinois. They've got them stocked in the Easter area as well as the endcap next to the LEGO aisle.

    They've also got #30227 for the same price.

    Finally got a Batman Tumbler today (Reading, PA). There weren't many, and they were only in one of the checkout aisles that I saw. All the rest of the aisles still had older poly's (like the Galaxy Squad #30230).

    Found the #30246 Imperial Shuttles at Meijers in Michigan - $4.29.

    Anyone know if this is going to stay a Meijer exclusive in the US? I picked up a couple today but if it is going to stay exclusive, it is probably worth getting a few more for trade or sale down the road? Anymore it seems like no poly is ever truly an exclusive unless it is SAH only.

    I'd be really surprised if it was an exclusive, especially being one of the iconic Star Wars ships.
  • wagnerml2wagnerml2 Belleville, IllinoisMember Posts: 1,376
    Has there ever been a Meijer exclusive? They are more regional. Only seen Target, TRU and Wal-Mart with exclusives. I will bet they show up at Wal Mart
  • TheLoneTensorTheLoneTensor MericaMember Posts: 3,950
    edited March 2014
    They move a lot of Lego. I don't think it's unrealistic for them to work out a deal for exclusivity of something, especially something minor like a polybag. Perhaps that partially explains the 30 cent jump.

    I still think it's just exclusive for timing, and we'll see this elsewhere later, not unlike Robin's redbird cycle.
  • DavidBrickleyDavidBrickley Richmond, VAMember Posts: 338
    Are there many polys that are truly exclusive in the long run (not including figures like Jor-el or Martian Manhunter)? I used to be quick to secure certain Lego store exclusives at the time of release (mini Hogwarts Express, for example) and have found many to end up on the shelves of other stores later on.

    Can anyone tell me what the status is of the "Micro Manager Battle" polybag? Was that an exclusive or a promo somewhere? I see it on ebay, and I'd like to get one, but I don't want to drop $20 on something that we might still be waiting for to just be more widespread.

  • pharmjodpharmjod 1,170 miles to Wall Drug, USAMember Posts: 2,873
    Mirkwood elves was never a huge release. Just TRU in the USA and target in Canada I believe. Where was the robin poly in the USA besides TRU?

    I found one and only one 30281 at a Meijer store. This one was in a bin where the CMF were supposed to be. I couldn't locate them anywhere else, but it was in their pricing system at $3.99

    The Robin poly was "exclusive" to Canada (TRU I thought), and insanely was going for $40-ish, until it got released in the US via TRU.

    So maybe it was exclusive to TRU in the US, but TRU is much more widespread than Meijer is, so maybe I should have clarified and talked about general availability rather than retailer exclusivity.

    Thanks; I haven't seen them around here yet, and I don't see any indication that they're an exclusive. I bet Lego has a trick up its sleeve for them and when the DVD/Blu Ray is released, and it might include this polybag coming out in places.
  • malachirobertsonmalachirobertson Indiana, USAMember Posts: 266
    I went back to Meijer today. I found where they keep 30281. They are in the checkout aisles.
  • wagnerml2wagnerml2 Belleville, IllinoisMember Posts: 1,376
    Anyone out there willing to pick me up 8 or 10 #30246 from Meijer? I'd be willing to pay a premium for your troubles. Also be interested in the same number of #30281. PM me if you can hook me up. I also have a bunch of #30261 and other polys to trade, if you'd rather.
  • ShpadoinkleShpadoinkle 13 hours West of BillundMember Posts: 418
    I'll keep my eyes peeled for you, though I haven't seen these around any of my stores. (Heck, my local store still has Atlantis polys!)
  • OdinduskOdindusk Member Posts: 763
    Went to two Meijer locations today. They had old polys. Nothing recent at all. Searched the toy/LEGO area and the checkouts.
