    ^^^ Doesn't say anything about the item being in stock in the URL I gave above.

    A post hit slickdeals about the price drop about 20 minutes ago. If you're on the fence about Death Star, I would advise to buy now before it's out of stock. You can always return it if you change your mind.

    ^ wow, that's a long time to sit on some of those sets . . .

    I plan to part out or use at least half of them

  • y2joshy2josh Member Posts: 2,002
    DS is back up to $336. Still a great deal, though.
  • rocaorocao Administrator Posts: 4,288
    It's still $289 for me
  • absolut3absolut3 Member Posts: 82
    I still see 289 for DS.. i just bought 2

    ^^^Thanks for saving some for the rest of us lol.

    I did leave some behind for you. Did you not get them?!

  • y2joshy2josh Member Posts: 2,002
    Huh. I have no idea why it's showing up at $336 for me. I'm out of space and funds anyway... so I guess it's no big loss.

    9 Town Halls, 8 Pet Shops, 6 Fire Brigades, 2 Tower Bridges, 2 Death Stars

    Now the wait begins to see if they go from "processing" to "shipped"

    :) I know the feeling... ouch, I swore I was DONE with Death Star, but at that price?

    Just bought 5 more Death Stars... and more Tower Bridges, and more Diagon Alleys...

    Something weird is going on, maybe Walmart is getting out of the Lego business? Nothing else makes sense.

    ^^Haha nope, I was too slow on the TH... Prob due to slickdeals, of course!
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    Edit: I really can't stand Walmart's web site, now THAT is annoying... The Tower Bridges and Diagon Alley's are site to store, for the store 3 minutes away from me.

    For some reason, the Death Stars are marked to be at a store an hour away from me! Grr... e-mail sent to Walmart.com, lets see if they can change it... don't know how it happened, it is a completely random store in another city.
  • rocaorocao Administrator Posts: 4,288
    @nkx1: in that case, don't be too slow this time. It's back in stock
  • gmpirategmpirate Member Posts: 1,654
    ^ strange, lets me pick which store

    LFT: Why not just ship to your house for $.97? Too much chance of damage or something?

    rocao: Thanks, I tried, but when finalizing the order it magically went OOS again. Oh well!

    ^^^Back in stock, but won't add to cart. Anyone else have any luck right now on the TH?

    Yes, they get trashed that way, I don't trust them...

    However, you make a good point, the site to store isn't foolproof either.

    I'll see what I can do to get them to change it, might have to have them change it to ship to me, if they can't change the store.

    Still, for 5 Death Stars at $289, I might make the drive if I have no choice, that is a lot of money saved. :)
  • rocaorocao Administrator Posts: 4,288
    @nkx1: if my Town Halls ship, you can have one of mine at cost

    LFT: Gotcha, I was just wondering. Yep, amazing deal on the DS.

    I just remembered, someone in some other thread stated the SSD or DS (cant remember which) was shipped to them with a shipping label slapped on the Lego box. Maybe ship to store is a good idea for the larger sets...

    :) Maybe, maybe not...

    At that price, it is worth holding for another year, still a good return on the money because of the discount.

    Still, I did just buy 5 more last week at the $335 price, so while I might kick myself later, I take this as a sign, I just clicked cancel on the order. :)

    Maybe I have enough, so the rest of you go buy them now. :)
  • gmpirategmpirate Member Posts: 1,654
    ^ so tempting as I want to build a skyscraper with them. Too long to wait for EOL.
  • y2joshy2josh Member Posts: 2,002
    As an addendum to my earlier post - When I look at the Death Star's page, it shows up at $336, but when I go to the actual checkout screen, it comes up at $289. If the Death Star happens to finally go this year... I'm going to be kicking myself for not picking up a couple more...
  • BumblepantsBumblepants DFWMember Posts: 6,108
    DS came back in stock for just a brief moment and while I tried to order my 2 yr old son started fighting with another kid outside and when I got back from sorting them out it was OOS. Suck.
  • cbaker1974cbaker1974 Member Posts: 150
    Just scored a Yellow Cargo Train for $108.55, OOS now
  • intromissionintromission Member Posts: 197
    Man, I have to get a Town Hall at this price or I may never pick it up. Has it been going in and out of stock?
  • absolut3absolut3 Member Posts: 82
    robie house $119.93
    http://www.walmart.com/ip/LEGO-Architecture-Robie-House/16532149
    not really that great as it's almost always selling for $150 but its the best price i've seen outside of the past 50% B&N
  • pharmjodpharmjod 1,170 miles to Wall Drug, USAMember Posts: 2,887
    Ordered 2 TH at $148. Emailed to see if they will price adjust. Crazy pricing. At this rate I won't have any thing left for BF deals, which unless they are even crazier than this probably won't matter. Would have loved to gotten a DS or two at that price. I only have a modest 2 in storage :)
  • brickupdatebrickupdate Member Posts: 1,020
    Okay, now Wal-Mart is just teasing us. They just lowered the price of the OUT OF STOCK Town Hall to $120.52:

    http://www.walmart.com/ip/LEGO-Creator-Town-Hall-Play-Set/20552243

    Insane.
  • brickupdatebrickupdate Member Posts: 1,020
    ...and it looks like the rest of my day will be spent refreshing the Wal-Mart pages for Death Star, Town Hall, Grand Emporium ($90!!!!!) and others...
  • y2joshy2josh Member Posts: 2,002
    edited October 2012
    EDIT: Disregard - It was doing that thing where it appeared to be in stock, but wouldn't actually let you add anything to the cart.
  • 111ins111ins Member Posts: 265
    Thanks for the info. But a minute too late, DS, GE in the basket and then gone!
  • brickupdatebrickupdate Member Posts: 1,020
    Wow - I have been refreshing these pages every 5-10 minutes or so, and even I missed these!
  • 111ins111ins Member Posts: 265
    How does the price matching work with amazon? Do you call the order in and say that WM has a better price? do they check? The DS, TH and GE were in and out of stock when I was on the walmart site, so not sure what they would say.
    Just found out about shipping depots that I can have sets sent to and I go get them (I am in Canada)... now too many sales!
  • dragonhawkdragonhawk USMember Posts: 633
    I knew I should have not gone to bed last night :(
  • CrazyaddictCrazyaddict Member Posts: 35
    if walmart reduce the price, submit the price report to amazon. that way, we get more stock - either from amazon or walmart!
  • dragonhawkdragonhawk USMember Posts: 633
    ^ It does not help when Amazon is OOS too
  • CrazyaddictCrazyaddict Member Posts: 35
    edited October 2012
    ^ it's implied that amazon must have it in stock! :P obviously...

    e.g. GE, DA, PS, VW Van are still in stock, but at MSRP.

    I wish I had insomnia last night. My wallet is happy I did not.
  • rocaorocao Administrator Posts: 4,288

    Okay, now Wal-Mart is just teasing us. They just lowered the price of the OUT OF STOCK Town Hall to $120.52

    This wasn't a tease; they were actually in stock briefly last night for that price.

    The tease -- for those that have orders -- is now hoping and waiting for them to go from "processing" to "shipped".

    I only have one of my orders from Oct 4th showing as shipped, and that was for Tower Bridge which has been available the entire past two days.

    Does anyone have "shipped" orders on Modulars from Oct 4th until now?

  • doriansdaddoriansdad CTCMember Posts: 1,337
    Missed all the action but requested a price adjustment on my Diagon Alley sets. Hopefully they honor their price adjustment policy. Nice sale.
  • doriansdaddoriansdad CTCMember Posts: 1,337
    Just called and they did the price adjustment over the phone. After discovercard cashback that brings the price down to $100.53 each for 10217. Now I just need them to arrive in good shape.

    @rocao - The GE I ordered last night at $108.10 is already showing as shipped, but that was all I picked up.
  • intromissionintromission Member Posts: 197
    Disappointed. This morning the Town Hall seemed to come into stock and I added it to my cart with store pick up. By the time I put all my info in it was out of stock again. Is store pick up an option with these sets? It was giving me a message that said it wasn't an option and then when I wasted time trying to order with shipping I lost it.
  • nkx1nkx1 Member Posts: 719
    ^Same thing happened to me last night with the TH.

    What number did you call? I can't seem to find a number at Walmart's website.
  • doriansdaddoriansdad CTCMember Posts: 1,337
    ^ Call 800-925-6278. Press 2, 1 & 1 at the first three prompts. This will get you a human. Tell them you had a question about an online order and they will forward you to the right person.
