    I finally scored some cmf S18 today. Went back to the same WM that had the TLBM S2 locked in plastic dvd cases. They didn’t have any on the shelves, but I asked an employee if they had any in back and she brought out an unopened box to my surprise. I got to feel out the whole box before they were locked up.  I’m pretty happy I was able to find 4 out of the 5 that I wanted.

    One WalMart I don't usually go to had 43 S18 bags out. Remnants of at least 2 cases because I found more than 10 Brick Suit Buy/Girl
    My regular location had 55, exactly 10 brick suits so probably 1 case.

    No policeman, as I expected

    Found #70903 for $17, grabbed one for the calendar man fig. They also had #70905 for $30, passed on that but if it goes any lower ilI' go back. Brickseek said they had 9 of the bounty Hunter battle pack for $9, but there were none to be seen... Also felt through the contents of about two cases of series 18 and there were 0 policemen

    The old Justice League BrickHeadz are gone at the WM near me
    I save LEGO pizza parts so I've been hoping for deals on pizzeria sets, better than either buying the parts by themselves or selling all the parts from a set. 41311 at $17 is
  • scotty12scotty12 United States, IowaMember Posts: 685
    Are the #41602 Rey and #41603 Kylo Red Brickheadz harder to come by?  I know there was the combo #41489 exclusive to Target but I have 3 nearby Walmart and only 1 ever carried them.  So I did a Brickseek search and out of the 15 WM, only 3 carried them.  Not sold out....ever carried them.

    Also ran across #31069 Creator Modular Family Villa $35 and #10715 Bricks on a Roll for $12.50

    @scotty12 Thanks for the tip! The shelf tag on Tracker 1 still shows $56 but I scanned it and it came up for the $35 clearance price.

    Found some of those BrickHeadz after all. The were hidden behind newer ones. 4 WW 5 Aquaman. Maybe Aquaman sucks but his part out value does not. Cyborg and The Flash also at $5 but parts not worth it
  • JenniJenni JapanMember Posts: 1,382
    I found a bunch of these sales today, thanks scotty12 , and surprisingly one store had Boost sets for $99. 
  • scotty12scotty12 United States, IowaMember Posts: 685
    I forgot to mention.....not that it's any big deal...but one of my local WM also have the Han Solo Brickheadz out and #75927 Jurassic World Stygimoloch  Breakout.
  • AstrobricksAstrobricks Minnesota, USMember Posts: 2,469
    I also saw new SW Solo movie and JW sets on the shelf yesterday in South St Paul.

    I was in a WM late one night and they had toy pallets out...Amongst them was 75927.  Dinosaurs will make a man do crazy things...Like open a box marked with a street date and go to check out.  Still, going to be after more dinos.


    Heads up:

    SW Arrowhead $45
    SW Tracker 1 $35
    Imperial Star Destroyer $99
    Riddler Racer $17


    A plethora of other sets currently being pushed out the door at WM anywhere from 40-75% off.

    I haven't seen any of the Jurrasic Park/World sets here in Oregon yet.
  • AwesomenessAwesomeness OhioMember Posts: 183
    I've seen a couple of the Jurassic world sets here but no poly yet.
  • TkattTkatt MNMember Posts: 328
    Today I picked up a Minecraft Ocean Monument #21136 for $60. They also had some of the Juniors Cars sets on clearance. I ended up buying #10742 Willy's Butte Speed Training for $7. They also had a few of the $5 Brickheadz, I got a few Aquaman. Earlier this week I got the $35 fire mech and a $7 Snow White's Cottage. 

    Walmart has actually not been a complete disappointment this week. Thanks @scotty12 for the heads up on the clearance deals.

    Ugh. I hate Brickseek...

    Drove to a WM (near work) with the hopes of finding some SW sets discounted b/c Brickseek said there are two in stock...but nothing.

    I find WM updates their floor/shelf prices very frequently. After scanning about 20 boxes, I had none that scanned differently in price.

    That's not the case with my Wal-Mart, at least not currently.  It doesn't post any sale prices at the shelf and I've picked up all sorts of deals over the last week or so.  

    Brickseek has been right on the price every time, obviously since that's the reason I'm there.  And it's been mostly right on the inventory.  But we know those 2 factors can change on a weekly basis and ymmv.

    @77ncaachamps Once you get down to inventory of two or three, its anyone's guess if those are on the shelf anywhere in the store. That one shipping box worth might be in the back ignored by the stocking crew since it isn't on the list anymore, or fallen and smushed behind pallets of other stuff in the back room or just have "walked off" at that point. My experience is that this lack of accuracy is always worst the first quarter of the year, being after the Christmas rush, but it is still touch and go most of the time. I share your frustration!

    I noticed this winter with the initial clearancing of some of the #75190 Star Wars Star Destroyer that there were 3 WM within an hours drive that Brickseek kept saying they were in-stock but weren't.  After doing some inquiring with an WM employee he mentioned WM and in particular LEGO is really bad with inventory.  He said the count may be off from the beginning....they'll get a case of 4 and WM inventory says there's 6.
      I've noticed that with the stores....at least with this particular instance...all 3 stores are off in inventory by 2.  Which is confusing....2 in-stock for $40 would be great!

    Also, if an item is in someone's cart, but they haven't checked out, the inventory would be correct, in that it IS in the store, but you can't find it. The Walmart nearest me has someone straighten up the LEGO aisle regularly... but they don't seem to put things next to their prices, they just line everything up.

    Picked up a #75932 today at one of my local Walmarts. They had them on the bottom of the pallet, in the boxes with street date stickers, but not enough to stop me. Still so excited to get a Lego Jurassic Park set! The good thing about Walmart is they will sell you sets even if they're not supposed to. Target just says sorry and takes my Lego from me at checkout.

    ^Excited to grab that ASAP, but wondering if the Baby Blue poly that's been sighted will be included as a gift with purchase down the road...I know it's Walmart but want to think that other stores will try to pick up on promotions that TRU used to do...thoughts?

    I would figure someone will become the new place for the exclusives. I'm thinking most likely target tho. They've ran free with purchase gifts before.

    Not sure if it's new to shelves, but I saw Yoda's Hut last night at WM.
  • scotty12scotty12 United States, IowaMember Posts: 685
    ^^ I would guess Target too...but WM has been carrying a lot more this year.  Years past it was an oddity to find polys at WM and many times you knew which WM would carry them and which wouldn't. Now there in every WM Lego toy aisle.

    ^exactly. We must be thinking the same thing ;)
    I'll definitely buy four if they show up in stores near me again, but if i have to resort to eBay, probably only one. I'm hoping for option A...

    I suppose this means the Speed Champions line will live on either as a Wal-Mart exclusive or will end up like other themes: widely sold everywhere with each store having one or two exclusive sets.

    That JW poly definitely looks like it could have been earmarked for TRU, as they often got the licensed ones for a GWP. Will be interesting to see where it finally turns up.
