    It's $38.99 on Amazon so...yeah?
    2.2 cents/piece

    (Was that a rhetorical question?) lol

    East Bay,  Hayward,  Union City, San Leandro and Dublin,  San Leandro store show 8 but none was found.  afraid the Fremont would be the same.  on the other hand,  San Leandro store still have a few of Death Trooper!

    This is ridiculous. I just went to my closest Walmart and failed to spot a single clearance item! Amazon could beat or match all the "deals." So to all of you fortunate people…

    I see Encounter on Jakku and Battle on Takodana both going down to $15 in local WMs, but they soon are out of stock. However, i managed to find #31064 @ $12.50 and #75131 @ $2.50.
  • KingAlanIKingAlanI Rochester, NYMember Posts: 1,859
    No such luck here, no big clearance at the WM near me

    ^ The Ecto-1 & 2 is a great find!  It hasn't dropped below $30 over in Raleigh yet.  Don't suppose you picked up an extra one? :)
  • CaptainRogersCaptainRogers Greensboro, NCMember Posts: 720
    Well, they did have one left. You want it? I sont think the savings would be much if I grabbed it and shipped it to you.
  • Bricklover18Bricklover18 PA, USAMember Posts: 720
    I'll take the #75157 if you want to pick one up.

    Holy Megablok! That is insane. I am soooo disappointed with my local Walmart up here in Oregon. What was the damage?

    Suddenly, I've gone from not caring about the buildable figures to owning several of them. The list of $5 ones I now own is: Darth Vader, First Order Stormtrooper, Finn, Jyn, Death Trooper, Baze, Chirrut, and K-2SO. Stupid LEGO addiction.

    Also found #75104 - Kylo's Shuttle and #70323 - Jestro's Lair for $40 each. Have wanted to shuttle for a while. Not into Nexo Knights personally, but my son has all the Ultimate sets and seems to have a growing interest in it. At $40, I bought 2 for the parts and for the ability to make the lair even bigger. Excited to build him a mega lair for his birthday coming up in July.

    Found #70625 Samurai VXL for $25. Last one on the shelf, so pretty happy I scored it. 

    The only other really good deal was #70321 General Magmar's Siege Engine of Doom for $25. Plus the Spiderman juniors set and juniors construction sets for $15.  West Madison WI

    Found four random Batman CMF thrown on a shelf with a price tag of $1.

    I never find "good" deals, so I snapped them up.

    Went to a local WM today.  Had all of the new sets out.  Purchased the Bounty Hunter battle pack.  Also noticed that the Milano set was reduced to $40.  Everything else was around the same, no really good deals.
  • red237red237 Member Posts: 273
    New stock of some previously clearanced out items - they returned to their full retail price too!
  • AstrobricksAstrobricks Minnesota, USMember Posts: 2,375
    ^ Always seems weird to see something that was clearanced to 50% off or more go back to regular price. 
  • JCoolJCool Member Posts: 46
    ^I saw the same thing with the Storm Trooper battlepacks yesterday... very odd!

    Same thing happened but at a Target:

    Doc Strange set was 30% clearanced a month ago.
    Then they weren't ringing up/scanning anymore with a discount.
  • CM4SCM4S United StatesMember Posts: 1,288
    Hey I saw on Brickseek the Captain Rex AT-TE is showing up as $30!!!! at some stores, especially the store closest to me. Thing is.. all gone there. Other stores have it at $70ish.. how can I get one to my store and buy it at $30?

    I never worry about even looking for such deals at the local Walmarts. Either such deals are scooped up by those who are professional resellers (who apparently have no other job than to run to store to store any day of the week at any time), or they never get that low to start with (either the store never discounts them or someone picks them up before they can get that low)

    My store never had all the discounts/clearance - makes me wonder where all the new sets will fit.

    Phasma and Rey added to the list. So that's 10 different ones at $5. Think that's as far as I'll get. The pickings in my area are very slim at this point. 
  • CaptainRogersCaptainRogers Greensboro, NCMember Posts: 720
    Oh man. Just found #75532 Scout Trooper and Speeder Bike for $6.97 at Wal-Mart. YMMV, so check quickly! 

    Price wasn't marked in store, just heard about it over at Slickdeals.

    Why would they put the scout trooper on clearance? Didn't it begin appearing in stores like two weeks ago? Anyhow… nice haul!
  • CaptainRogersCaptainRogers Greensboro, NCMember Posts: 720
    ^no idea and I didn't ask! Wal-Mart's logic sometimes defies reasoning, it seems... Rogue One battle packs also went on clearance pretty recently. Who knows why?

    I picked up 3 speeders at my closest Wal-Mart,  checked brick seek and most of the Wal-Mart's astound me have them marked at 6.97. The shelf tag even said 6.97, no markdown or closeout special tag 
  • samiam391samiam391 A Log Cabin in KY, United StatesMember Posts: 4,251
    Interesting. Closest to me also says $6.97. Time for an evening trip!
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 9,302
    Heh Walmart app says one store near me has them in limited stock, brickseek says no results...

  • PitdroidPitdroid Dallas AreaMember Posts: 24
    I just ran up to the walmart down the street.  Brickseek says they had 3.  Sold out.  Shelf tag even said 6.97  crazy
  • pharmjodpharmjod 1,170 miles to Wall Drug, USAMember Posts: 2,873
    Brickseek lags usually about 20-30 minutes (at least)  behind real time sales fwiw.
  • samiam391samiam391 A Log Cabin in KY, United StatesMember Posts: 4,251
    Shelf tag said $54, but all 3 rang up at $6.97! Quite the exciting deal for me.

    Make sure you look all over the aisle for them. The 3 I purchased were stashed on the shelf laying face down- not even on display. 
  • starfire2starfire2 Phoenix AZMember Posts: 1,298
    I found 3 at my nearest store. I bought all 3.

    Brickseeks showing two of my local stores have them in stock at full price and one is 6.97 but out.  Its certainly worth double checking them though!   Wish me luck!
  • YodaliciousYodalicious DagobahMember Posts: 1,366
    One store with an empty space marked $6.97. One with a bunch marked at full price. One with nothing.
  • pharmjodpharmjod 1,170 miles to Wall Drug, USAMember Posts: 2,873
    Managed to get the last one at my local store this am. Thanks for the heads up.

    Well I tried to send proxies to get some but Brickseek wasn't showing any near friends and family. The worst thing is anytime I go to buy this set in the future my brain will say 'But it could have been $7!' and it will seem like a bad purchase even if it is a decent deal.

    I'm not sure if I'm just doing it wrong, but can someone confirm the SKU/UPC number for me on this as I'd like to check my local stores (not that I feel I have a good chance at this point).

    EDIT - 

    The "Search" feature apparently was not on my radar. 

    The nearest store to me showed them at the $6.97 price, but out of stock. Everyone else is at $54. Go figure. 
  • bsiu922bsiu922 SF Bay Area, CAMember Posts: 439
    #75532 nearly either full Price with Stock or 6.97 with no stock!  

    found 

    LEGO Constraction Star Wars Sergeant Jyn Erso 75119


    for $5 and now seems not a very good deal!

  • BillyBricks84BillyBricks84 United StatesMember Posts: 343
    I was able to find 3 of the Scout Troopers for $6.97, which made me feel better about none of the stores near me having the other Constraction figures for $5 last month.
  • YodaliciousYodalicious DagobahMember Posts: 1,366
    No luck finding Scout Troopers for less than full retail in my area, but did pick up #75154 - Tie Striker for $17 and #70321 - General Magmar's Siege Machine of Doom for $11. Can't believe I paid roughly the same (about $50) for 5 of the Ultimate Nexo Knights sets as I did ($51) for Jestro's Volcanic Lair and Magmar's Siege Machine. My son is going to have a happy birthday next month.
  • CaptainRogersCaptainRogers Greensboro, NCMember Posts: 720
    #70321 General Magmar's Seige Machine of Doom $11
    #70323 Jestro's Volcano Lair $30

    #31047 Propeller Plane $5

    I was bummed about the Scout Trooper being out of stock so I started searching for other sets on my Want List that might be discounted. To my surprise I found #75828 Ecto 1&2 for $15! It showed 8 in stock at the nearest store to my work. I checked the website and it showed 7 in stock at the same price. 

    I threw caution to the wind and decided to make the journey over (slightly out of range for my normal lunch break). I walked in optimistic as the website still showed 5 in stock when I arrived. However, after a 15 minute search of every aisle, every center display, end display, hidden space behind other sets, I came up empty handed. I asked two workers if they could help. They didn't recall having any more as of last week, but agreed that their system showed 5 still in stock. NOTHING!

    I ended up scanning probably 50 other sets to see if I could leave with something to not make my trip worthless, but to no avail. 

    Now, I don't have a lot of experience with Walmart, but I do have a screen shot showing the listed price and availability. Has anyone ever had luck contacting Walmart to say you want that item at that price? It's a long shot for a set that I could likely find for a little more money elsewhere, but worth asking the collective experience of the forums.
