  • iancam33iancam33 Member Posts: 407
    Yes, it was in store. Saw them after getting a smoking deal there on some other sets. USA @drdavewatford.

    Nice set...picked up 5 of them. Not bad for $3.99 each. Both TRU stores had about 50 displayed.

    @legomaniac-I got vampire castle, 2x catcycle chase, fierce flyer, Colby city, 5x lawn mower, and crocs boat for about $159 including tax

    How does one get a smoking deal at TRU? Does that really happen?
  • iancam33iancam33 Member Posts: 407
    oops I forgot to mention it was 2x of the croc boat

    TRU's smoking deals???
    @iancam33 are you sure the cashier did not mistake the toy gun in your hand for a real one?
  • iancam33iancam33 Member Posts: 407
    I think getting more than $71 worth of rrp for nothing extra is pretty good
  • adol7adol7 Member Posts: 150
    I don't think anyone is disagreeing it being a deal. The shock and disbelief is that the deal is coming from TRU. You sure you didn't mean Target, Walmart or any other place? :p
  • iancam33iancam33 Member Posts: 407
    Haha. You just need to know how to play the game with tru. It also helps I have become friendly with one of the managers.

    You going to tell us what happened or will it take 20 more notes?

    ^it started with one order online #9468(this was onsale for $86 and I had a $5 rewards so now $81) and the fierce flyer. I waited until a pomo was offered by tru(%15 off entire order) I placed an order for the catcycle and Colby city which was on sale and had another $5 reward and ordered enough to get free shipping and qualify for the free chima set. I picked up the items in store and then returned them all(you have 90 days to return w/ tru) to use the %15 off of the online sale price. Then I used my %15 off again for the lawn mower and spent enough to qualify for the free chima set again. I guess I could have waited for a %25 promo but who knows how long that would have taken. all-in-all I think I made out ok

    ^i think I need a diagram or something to map that out.

    Ok, so when you said "2x of the croc boat" you were referring to #30252 and not #70006 - big difference in my assumptions of your haul. Though I am still hazy on the return shenanigans you describe.

    I guess I look to this forum as being a mechanism for people to share how they do certain things so others can benefit, that and hoping it's all legit. I don't think we've reached that point with your instructions. Unless, of course, you were just tossing it out to gloat, which is ok I guess.

    Well, to be fair, the original intent of his post was to let us know about the lawnmower. The rest was pushed by us wanting a definition of a smoking deal. :)
  • TheLoneTensorTheLoneTensor MericaMember Posts: 3,950
    That may be true, but the mention of the "smoking deal" was the catalyst. You can't just toss out that kind of phrase without getting someone to say "hey, what's up?"
  • legogallegogal USMember Posts: 755
    @ iancam33: I'm exhausted from just trying to figure out the details of the "smoking deal!" Must be too hot for me!

    At TRU where I rarely shop, today I picked up the Lone Ranger Cavalry Builder Set 79106 marked up to 16.99US so they could sell it for just 9.99US (WHAT A DEAL...WHOOOOPEEEE) and Lawnmower Man 30224 for 3.99US. Then while standing in line, I hit the jackpot....no, it was not Mr. Gold....Hubby is the man of my dreams, sorry!

    I had been trying to find Bumblebee Girl of CMS 10 for weeks, and found her up in the third bag I managed to feel while waiting to check out. Very, very happy about my little Bumblebee...she is quite cute!

    @tensor: sorry I wrote the wrong name. It was #30252. Ok, so, maybe the deal wasn't smokin' after all. My apologies If I mislead everyone. I guess getting 7 poly bags and three small sets at no extra charge and paying less than rrp for the two larger sets and getting my ebates rebate is no big deal when it comes down to it. :::stands in corner with head hung in shame:::
  • TheLoneTensorTheLoneTensor MericaMember Posts: 3,950
    It's still a decent deal, and polybags rule, so have fun :)
  • iancam33iancam33 Member Posts: 407
    I sure wish it was #70006 instead of #30252. Now that would have been "smokin' "

    We went from a comment about a Lawnmower set to a tangent about a 'smokin' deal. I am comforted to see that the Predictions on Discontinuing Sets and Their Secondary Market Value (a record for the longest title?) isn't the only thread that goes off onto tangents. Course the 'smokin' tangent hasn't gone on for pages and pages (yet, he he).

    Getting back on track, no lawnmower yet in Stockton CA's TRU. :(
    I suppose a $3.99 polybag isn't significant enough for a nationwide synchronized "launch." :p

    picked up several in St Louis today. Great little set.
  • baronbaron Member Posts: 106
    does anyone know if the Time's Square locations has these?
  • BlueTacoBlueTaco MarylandMember Posts: 78
    Glen Burnie MD has them. Picked up two and I'm glad I did because it's one of my favorite polybags, at least in recent memory.
  • pharmjodpharmjod 1,170 miles to Wall Drug, USAMember Posts: 2,916
    Saw them at my local TRU today in Lexington, KY.
  • DoubleDDoubleD Oklahoma, USAMember Posts: 488

  • ThisIsMyCupThisIsMyCup Member Posts: 156
    picked one up yesterday, got it home and notice there was a small hole in the bag, missing 6 pieces, including the green hat. :/
  • bsiu922bsiu922 SF Bay Area, CAMember Posts: 439

    Debating to run around here and look for these, it is a neat little set
  • starfire2starfire2 Phoenix AZMember Posts: 1,329
    I saw them today at the TRU at 3rd St. and Bell in Phoenix, AZ. It looked ok, but not cool enough for me to want.
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 10,108
    Sold out around by me.. Just another few TRus by me, but not feeling adventurous to try to go to them today
  • margotmargot Member Posts: 2,310
    Just showed up at my TRU, which always gets things late. Doubt it will sell out anytime soon here.
  • MilcheaxMilcheax Member Posts: 52
    Went to the TRU in Deptford, NJ (near the mall) and they had a few dozen of the lawnmowers on an endcap hangy thing near the primary Lego aisle.

    (There were a lot more Lego "aisles" than there usually are)

    The guy I asked to point me in the direction at first thought I meant #30260 Pump Car (which I've been looking for) but said they sold out almost immediately.
  • iancam33iancam33 Member Posts: 407
    Has anyone else in SJ found #30260 pump car???
  • JdawgJdawg St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada Member Posts: 83
    TRU in Port Huron MI, has the Lawnmower polys. I asked about the LR polys and he said they lasted a day. I not holding my breath that I will find them in the wild.

    They also had both the City and SW advent calenders.

    Have these been seen in WHS in the UK? Did I blink and miss it? I wouldn't mind a couple of these.
  • Russell844Russell844 California, USAMember Posts: 2,076
    Saw the lawnmower poly today at the Dublin, CA TRU.

    Btw, this set is pretty cute. The way it's designed, the blades tilt ever so slightly away from the body, making them spin when you push it.
