    Still haven't seen any of these at my Walmart.

    I think some just are not going to get them. I have 2 stores within easy driving, one got them, one did not. I'm checking the latter 2 or 3 times a day now.

    I mean, a week. Really. Believe me.

    Thanks for the Pic, really helps when trying to know what to look for in-store.

    @Adol7 - highly unlikely that there will e any left. I've found them at 3 of my 7 Walmarts that I frequent and only 1 display which has 15-20 copies of each poly. If you see them I would buy them.
  • wagnerml2wagnerml2 Belleville, IllinoisMember Posts: 1,376
    @Coyotelily - I may be able to accomodate you. I have a pretty extensive Poly collection, but PM me what you might have to offer.

    They just got put out in the Easter section in my WM today. Grabbed a couple (nothing there I really, really wanted) but you know how it is with Polys, you can't say no!

    So I guess keep checking your stores, this is the first time I've seen a single polybag at mine!
  • jasorjasor United StatesMember Posts: 839
    ^^ The more you buy, the more they'll send in the future ;)
  • margotmargot Member Posts: 2,310
    @Coyotelily , did you get what you needed? My Walmart still has all those polys.
  • cloaked7cloaked7 Member Posts: 1,448
    Knoxville, TN. The store closest to me had them in the Toy Dept. On a small section of shelves at the front, separate from the main toy shelves. That's where they typically have LEGOS in the cardboard trays. They didn't have any LEGOS in the Easter section.

    I just picked up a nice stash of all 6 of the poly bags... Hit me up if you need any of them...@Coyotelily or others...

    #30230 Galaxy Squad Mini Mech
    #30213 Gandalf at Dol Guldur
    #30240 Z-95 Headhunter
    #30254 Razcal's Double-Crosser
    #30161 Batmobile
    #30222 Police Helicopter
  • SpicySpicy Member Posts: 25
    Found four of the six mentioned polybags last night in the Easter section. They did not have the Mini Mech or the Police Helicopter, but I think it might have been in error because there were two boxes of Gandalf and the Z-95 Headhunter, and only one of the Double-Crosser and Batmobile.

    Found all polybags at the walmart in Phoenix at eliot just past the I10
  • starfire2starfire2 Phoenix AZMember Posts: 1,329
    Found them at 19th Ave & W Bell Wally in PHX yesterday
  • KottonKotton Member Posts: 55
    I know this probably fits in the Buy/Selling topic, but it fits with this one too.

    I put all six of the Walmart polybags for sale on ebay and reasonable prices.

    @Kotton - it actually belongs in the Marketplace.
  • TheLoneTensorTheLoneTensor MericaMember Posts: 3,950
    For the record, plan-o-grams have apparently gone out the window at Walmart as I've found these all over the place in different stores. In one store alone I found the Chima ones in the Lego aisle (gasp!), the Z95s in the clearance aisle, the helicopters and Batmobiles in the Easter aisle and Gandalfs in the Friends aisle - apparently he's quite spry for an older guy.

    Funny enough, I found a single Z95 in the onions also, though I'm guessing that was some failed situation between a kid and his mom.

    In other words, check everywhere, even the onions.

    I had three Chima, and two z-95 at the register. There was a couple of boys in a cart in front of me, and their couponing mother was taking FOREVER. They saw the polys, and asked for them. Of course their mom said "next time" since she didnt want to get out of line. I told her i'd give her 2 of the Chimas, so she wouldnt have to get out of line.

    The boys ended up with their polys, and the Mom begrudgingly bought them.

    Win-win for me :D

    I've completely struck out at my nearest five walmarts. I haven't found the polybags, either (zing!) If anyone is able to readily purchase them from their walmart or has a complete set spare, please PM me.

    Went to my local WM today in south Florida (Coral Springs/Parkland Walmart on Coral Ridge).

    Couldn't find any polybags in the Lego isle but did see some in the clearance isle. The following are what I saw:

    #30240
    #30161
    #30230
    #30222
    #30181 (only 1)
    #30213

    There may have been others but I didn't see them.

    If you anyone really needs these, I could pick them up and trade or just send for shipping costs.

    PM if interested.

    (not sure if those links work properly)
  • bsiu922bsiu922 SF Bay Area, CAMember Posts: 439
    only these three
    #30161 Batmobile
    #30222 Police Helicopter
    and seems 1 for #30230 Galaxy Squad Mini Mech
  • FenrisAkashiFenrisAkashi Member Posts: 242
    @Pillpod
    Where these actually clearanced or just in the clearance isle?
  • pillpodpillpod Member Posts: 273
    Well, they were in the clearance isle. If they actually were on clearance, it was negligible. I bought #30161 and the total was $4 and change; no more than $4.25.

    But no amazing deals or anything; just figured them being available would appeal to some bricksetters.
  • dragonhawkdragonhawk USMember Posts: 633
    ^ I got my #30161 for $3.97 + tax. So yours do not seem to be discounted even though it is located on clearance isle
  • pillpodpillpod Member Posts: 273
    I'm guessing they just threw them there because they didn't have a place to put them in the Lego ilse.
  • dejavudejavu USAMember Posts: 235
    Our local Wal-Mart often has them in the checkout aisle with other impulse purchase items like hand sanitizer, dental floss, eyeglass repair kits and krazy glue.

    I can't tell you how many times I see a Lego box in the clearance aisle at Walmart, with a clearance tag, but it's the same price as normal. It's frustrating and very anticlimactic.

    I could not find a few of the polybags I wanted at the Walmart near me, so I took a trip out of the way.

    While checking the clearance I found the Life of George game for only $1.00. SCORE!

    When I turned the the corner to the second clearance isle, there they were! all six polybags, all clearance for $1.00 each!

    I also found the #9493 X-Wing for only $30.00 as well.

    Needless to say, my wife was a little pissed when my Walmart tab was $125 instead of the $15 it was supposed to be.

    Wow, what a score. Time to open a KottonMart.

    I just found some Friends polys in a similar display box in the Friends section at Walmart. This store had the Desk, Summer Picnic, and Ice Cream Stand sets.

    I can confirm this odd placement! That's my store! :)

    EDIT: You're that fellow from Reddit! Nice to see you again!

    If anyone happens to have any extra Chimas or Galaxy Squads, I'm on the hunt.

    @penkid11 - I have several. PM me with what you might have to trade.

    Next week's (17-23 March) ad for WalMart has five or six polys in it for $3.47 - Batmobile, Gandalf, Police Heli, and a couple of others.
  • ecmo47ecmo47 North CarolinaMember Posts: 2,101
    ^ I wonder if they will get more in since we have already bought out the good ones! (Gandolf, Headhunter, Galaxy Squad)
  • adol7adol7 Member Posts: 150
    Can't believe Kotton's Walmart had them on clearance already and now the ad lists them. Someone over there must be in trouble. :p
  • BrickarmorBrickarmor USAMember Posts: 1,257
    If anyone notices a restock please post here. I am under the assumption that these were a one shot seasonal thing and once they're gone, they're gone, but I'd be thrilled to be wrong. The stores that had them haven't gotten any more (yet) and the ones that didn't get them still haven't.
  • lulwutlulwut Member Posts: 417
    If you have an iphone with the walmart app, you can try this to see if a location at one point carried these new polybags:

    - Enter 'store mode' at the WM location you want to check
    - Go into 'scan barcode' mode and scan a virtually generated barcode of the Z-95 polybag (673419188135)
    -If the result shows a price, they carry the new polybags
    -If the result says 'unable to resolve', the location does not carry them

    By doing this, I did not have to waste gas trying to figure which WM carried these. Found two locations and bought what I needed. YMMV.

    My Walmart has replenshed the Chima, Z95, Helicopter and Mini Mech ones when they were clearly out of stock before. These were full price on an endcap near the Lego aisle. I couldn't find the others polys.

    I went through three workers (including one on the stock team) to try and find out if they were newly delivered, just replenished from the back, are they expecting more, etc., but you would think I was asking them to solve a calculus problem with the dumbness I encountered.

    Anyway, it appears they are still out there in the wild if you're looking for them. By the way, my quick opinion of each in order from least cool to most cool:

    #30222 Police Helicopter
    This is a terribly fragile and very lame model. My son was very underwhelmed. The windshield is a nice piece, however

    #30254 Razcal's Double-Crosser
    Generic car, though they did get a little creative making it look kinda (barely) like a bird. Would have scored higher if it had a different fig besides Razscal, which you can get cheap already in #70000

    #30213 Gandalf at Dol Guldur
    Same as Razscal, Gandalf is someone you probably already have, but hey, a printed map, skull and spider is always welcome

    #30161 Batmobile
    Looks pretty good and sleek. No minifig but more pieces. Not bad.

    #30230 Galaxy Squad Mini Mech
    It's nothing special part-wise, but it's super cute. Also, you get a fig you can't find elsewhere except in the expensive #70705

    #30240 Z-95 Headhunter
    By far the best of the bunch. I love this little ship and think it's one of the best SW micro scale ships ever. No minifig, but a very high piece count (54) to offset, plus a slew of useful and some relatively rare parts. This is a must-get

  • margotmargot Member Posts: 2,310
    I like the headhunter too, much more than I thought I would.
  • Thanos75Thanos75 Member Posts: 1,120
    At last...I have found a store with them. I picked up a couple of each and have to agree that the Headhunter is the best of the bunch.
  • psychopuppetpsychopuppet Member Posts: 71
    My Walmart did not restock any ,but did put out Friends poly 30108 Summer Picnic and I think it was 30102 Olivias Desk
  • ecmo47ecmo47 North CarolinaMember Posts: 2,101
    ^ No re-stock on the 5 poly's already mentioned but I did find 3 Friends sets; 30102, 30106, and 30108.
  • plantmanplantman Member Posts: 97
    The sets with minifigs sold out at my Walmart in 2 days -#30222 and #30254 only lasted one day, but last night I noticed they put out four new boxes of the mini Star Wars kits. I also thougth the helicopter was horrible and passed on it.
  • KottonKotton Member Posts: 55
    I'm going to have to check my out of the way Walmart and see if they restocked the clearance department...
  • Russell844Russell844 California, USAMember Posts: 1,994
    The Walmart closest to my work just did an inventory and put a bunch of single sets in the clearance section, including polybags. I scanned everything. Most was either full price or only a few dollars cheaper.

    Now I know why I can't find any of the polys. :-) Good gravy, you got the trays and everything! ! ! (I would have too for $1.00 each.)

    How do you get the Iron Man vs. Fighting Drone polybag? Has it not been released yet? I need an Iron Man Mark VI for my malibu mansion...

    ^ According to Brickset it has only been available in a TRU in Hong Kong so far, so not very available. Though the minifig itself is fairly available assuming it's the same as: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?M=sh015
