Had one really great find yesterday. Picked up Hogwart's Castle 4842 for $15! Has to be the find of this thread I think :)
I made a 80 mile round trip to all the walmarts within a 40 mile radius of me only to come up empty of finding a cheap QAR or BP, if anyone would like to help it would be greatly appreciated
4737 HP quiditch x3 $10
7931 SW T6 x1 $30
7288 mobile police unit x3 $21
5512 x1 $15
No turbo tank or falcon marked down at all. Was hoping to get lucky.
Each Walmart has a certain allotment of shelf space for Lego. My take is that there are 3 levels of stock. Max, medium and minimum. Max seems to be super centers mainly. Then other non-super stores can have the lower levels. So aside from over ride clearances which are random the other mark downs appear to have a pattern. Just my experience locally.
I have had decent luck finding all of the markdowns, but after the first round, just don't have the resources. I've been picking up just sets I want to build or part out for MOCs. As an investment, I expect the sets that so many are getting so cheaply may take longer to rise in value, as there would be so many more "competitors" in the secondary market. I guess time will tell, though.
The Burrows x 6
Freeing Dobby x 4 ($1.50 each)
Quidditch Match x 2
AC Mothership ($11)
Jet copter Encounter
SW Advent Calendar x 3 ($7 each)
Whitecap Bay x 2
King's Carriage Ambush x 2
Mack's team Truck
Escape at Sea x 2 ($7.50 each)
Flo's V8 Cafe
Big Bentley Bust-out
Mater's Spy Zone
The Wich Doctor ($11)
I found all of these over several visits to 4 different Walmarts last week (before the "official" clearance advertised on T.V....I havn't found anything since that started!
So if your out West, don't give up!
I picked up these extras if anyone wants to trade for a black pearl or queen anne's revenge
3x slave 1
creator transport truck
2x sw t-6
3x POTC London escape
Been to 4 WM's this evening, no SW sets on sale. None. No QAR's on sale either. My local WM has repositioned their sets and it looks like they have places for the larger SW sets and the QAR and BP, so it may be awhile before they mark those sets down. Also, they have some of the newer sets out (supposed to be on the 10?, they're early), and it looks like they have room for everything. Course, that may change if they get a boat load of the new sets in. Who knows.
To add to the list is a
Police Station (opened box to make sure all contents were there as the box had a 4 inch hole in it)
T6 Shuttle x2
Bounty Gunship x1
Cars Ultimate Mater x1
Did not see any of the big potentials like MF and QAR, at discount or RRP even.
*Edit: I was there last week also to pick up some City Police, Tripods and SW Starfighters. Came back today on a whim to find a different selection of sets. Never deep on inventory though, only a couple copies of each set usually.
