    ^ Shoot. Too bad those aren't the bigger 30 gal size. I store a lot of my boxed sets in those to keep the dust off and make them easier to move around.

    I think I just got it that time. I need to check, because I checked out so fast. 😜😜 I think two brickheadz already in my cart came along for the ride.

    ^ Huh. Thanks. Last time was probably 3 years ago I managed to snag these larger boxes for the cheaper BF price.

    Probably only matters to me, but there were some good deals on a few brickheadz. Harry/hedwig, groot/rocket, were 9.99

    Walmart website is garbage for me still. Ordered the #10704 off of jet.com

  • tamamahmtamamahm Member Posts: 1,950
    I had a very hard time earlier I had a very hard time earlier with the website. I refreshed a bunch, and it would eventually allow me to order, but it took a bit.

    Walmart has also been cancelling orders for a lot of people. I've had orders cancelled and they weren't excessive orders by any stretch of the imagination.

    Are they giving any reasons?
  • pharmjodpharmjod 1,170 miles to Wall Drug, USAMember Posts: 2,875
    "Thanks for your recent order. We're really sorry, but we've canceled the items shown below because we couldn't verify some or all of your payment information. Please sign in to your account and be sure your billing address, phone number and credit card information is correct and current. "

    So, in other words, no. No legit reasons. Everyone with cancellations got this message. It's the same credit card I use for everything.

    Thanks for the info. My LEGO boxes have already shipped, but the several brickheadz I ordered are must haves for my kiddo, so I will keep an eye for any cancellations.

    ^^I got the same sort of message from [email protected] last year when I ordered during Black Friday. They had still charged me for the order. A call to CS sorted it out. Maybe the payment systems get overwhelmed in high volume situations.

    Just got two of the last four #10704 for $20 each at the Shakopee store. Not too crowded either; took me maybe 10 min. :)
  • 12651265 Member Posts: 944
    Plenty of #10704 left but passed.  Picked up the box and surprised how light it was.  Too many small pieces; couldn't pull the trigger.

    10704 is great for BrickLink part out, especially since I'm familiar with it from last year. There were still plenty left at 9, and the crowds were reasonable by then. I got 26 and 1 of the DUPLO, what I could afford and had room to carry. Several people wondered what the heck I was doing but appreciated the hustle

    @Astrobricks what time did you go?
    @1265 I can get 2 sets' worth in 1 box easily and jam in a 3rd (useful for compact transportation and storage), but I take that as a mark against the packaging, not the set itself.

    @KingAlanI, I checked out at 8:54 pm. 
    Also, I agree about the packaging. A normal 900 piece set would be in a smaller box.

    Stopped by Walmart to return something and I saw the 900 piece Lego box on clearance for $15. There was a bunch left.  Guess they are not selling at all.

    People are probably tired of Wal-Mart basically selling the same thing every year.

     Went to our Mountain View, CA Walmart Saturday just before closing and they still about ten #10704 ($20) boxes near the front as you walk in.
  • datsunrobbiedatsunrobbie West Haven , CTMember Posts: 1,458
    Checked Brickseek this morning, only 95 #10704 left at closest store, 240 at the next closest. Hoping for a price drop...

      Completely forgot to check brickseek. Checked my area and there are some stores with a lot left.
    While good for parts still and somewhat cheap presents, it apparently also shows that AFOLs were driving the BF sales for the 1500 count boxes.

    Some stores had it marked to $10 on black Friday.

    I'm sure it'll be a Black Friday special in 2024.

    So far, cyber Monday looks like a bust on Walmart.com.

    The Snowspeeder is currently 20% off. 
  • MugenPowerMugenPower Member Posts: 447
    ^^ Argh, I got the Snowspeeder last week from [email protected] for the 2x VIP points and freebies.  O well, I guess it's worth the $40 difference?  =/

    #76108 Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown is $65.09 with same-day pickup.

    Seeing that Snowspeeder price and even that isn’t getting me excited about Star Wars stuff lately. 
  • rd1899rd1899 U.S.A.Member Posts: 143
    #75932 - Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase - $27.48 (first time I've seen it below 20% off)
    #60154 Town Bus Station - $28.99 (also same price at Amazon)

    I did the exact same thing. Amazon now has it at the Walmart price, and you can get another $32 off with the Amex shop with points promo (20% discount for applying a single membership rewards point). $127.99 plus tax. I submitted that order and plan to return my [email protected] order.

    Do you have a link for that offer?  I didn't see any when poking around my AMEX account but it could just be that mine isn't eligible for it.
  • itsnotmeitsnotme Member Posts: 111
    ^ Yep - There is a link in the second paragraph of this article where you can check to see if you qualify for the offer: https://thepointsguy.com/deals/black-friday-amazon-save-20-percent-amex/. I have my Amex account linked to Amazon, but have never paid with points. Not sure if those are the exact boxes you need to check to be eligible, but it did show up for me. If you get it working, be sure to reduce the number of Amex points to 1 (or $0.01) at checkout, otherwise it will use points for the entire purchase.
  • MugenPowerMugenPower Member Posts: 447
    Thanks!  I just tried and it doesn't seem like I'm eligible.  Oh well!
