    Anyone finding Bennys Spaceship for the $49 on the Walmart Inventory checker?

         I was a little over an hour away for work and hit 3 WMs that had 6-8each of them but last week they were $79....now it says $49.  It's probably still safer to call.

    I picked up 10x this morning at $49. Check the mobile app for price; availability / inventory tracking seems to be a bit spotty, but the prices usually always match up for me.

    About the app:  I updated it and the usual way to find price of the local store no longer available to me; I can no longer see the "store view" button.  I used to add all the sets I'm looking for on a list and then pick my favorite store.  Once I switch to store view, I can look at my list and find the local store prices that way.  How is one navigate the current version of the app to see the store prices?  Thanks!

    PS:  I did not have much luck with most of my stores.  Most shelves are voided of old sets and new sets are all lined up nice and neat.  I did find some items that may not have been mentioned here:  #41058 Heartlake Shopping Mall for $54, Emerald Express for $2.50, and #75012 BARC Speeder with Sidecar for $7.

    I got a Spaceship for $49 at our Walmart today; I'll save it for a rainy day build with the kids, I guess!

    Just found the Milano set in NH for $35. The box was dinged up but I'm not complaining.

    Didn't find it on the checker, but I found one in the store.  They also had TMNT half off, too.

    Saw Benny's spaceship for $49 at a nearby Walmart via app check.  Went to store and the toy area was a disaster area. I've never seen such a mess in my life.  Couldn't find anyone to assist, so I went ahead and ordered via the app for $49 (said it was in stock).  Sadly I received notification they couldn't locate it and cancelled the order.  The kicker is it's in stock at a closer Walmart for... $74.

    Yeah, the WM in my area have begun clearing out the clearance items from their Lawn and Garden section and the Toy Aisles I've been in make train wrecks look pretty. Haven't found anything good lately either. *sigh*

    Weird story ... called a Walmart to check to see if they had any Benny's Spaceships left in stock, because it said that they did on-line.  The toy manager looks for me.  After a few minutes, she comes back on to say that someone grabbed the last two just as she was going down the aisle!

    For those living in Northern Indiana or Southwest Michigan.  I saw three Milano spaceship rescues for $35 each at the Mishawaka, IN Walmart.  The tricky thing is that they were not on the Lego aisle with the shelf tag.  They were one aisle over near the price checker in the toy department.

    ^this is one reason I like using the site to store online order. Let the Walmart employees figure out where they stuck the stupid thing. I'm convinced they have trouble finding them too, as I've had orders cancelled and then seen the sets in the store later. (Or their inventory system is just lousy. Both are probably pretty likely.).

    I've had multiple orders cancelled using the site to store option. It would tell me in stock online and then they'd say none available. I had to go to 4 different wal-marts to get the MF a few years ago. And when I picked it up from the store, the box had a huge hole in it. Luckily it was all still in there.
  • Niles87Niles87 Member Posts: 26
    Yeah, lately Wal-marts have been striking out for me here. I don't use the ship-to-store option right now because the sets I've been looking for don't show up online anymore.
  • OUWxGuesserOUWxGuesser Member Posts: 92
    "^this is one reason I like using the site to store online order. Let the Walmart employees figure out where they stuck the stupid thing. I'm convinced they have trouble finding them too"  Tried this as two walmarts now... both time cancelled then they changed stock to 0.   Hmm. 
  • RonyarRonyar Member Posts: 369
     ^I've had it happen both ways.  Shown in stock online and then cancelled when I order, and showing as out of stock but I see it sitting on the shelves when I go in.  Since the online price is often lower and I know they have it in stock if I get a confirmation, I like site-to-store.  But their inventory system is certainly lacking at this point.  I would guess it has more to do with the employees than the software they use, but that's just a guess.
    I had one instance when they couldn't fill part of my order, even though the set was sitting on the shelf. Apparently they couldn't add it back to my order after it had been marked that they didn't have it.  I had to buy it separately and get a price match to the online price, which was a pain in that particular store.  The things we do to save a couple of bucks on little plastic bricks! :/

    79121 TMNT Sub: $30
    76021 GotG Milano: $35
    70724 Ninjacopter: $30
    70142 Eris Fire Eagle: $15
    76003 Superman/Smallville: $25
    70815 TLM Dropship: $59 (I'd buy at ~$40)
    A couple other bigger sets at pretty measly discounts.

    Some (newer) Speedorz for $4

    No $50 Benny's Spaceship around me.The only thing I found even semi worthwhile was TMNT #79118  Karai Bike Escape for 4.99.I figured the turtle figure alone was worth that much.

    walmart texas had the city camper van for  5 dollars so bought about 11 of them. They had the turtles movie van for 19 and had like 6 left but I bought only one. Might go back up there and get some more. They had basically the whole turtle line on sell that was left.
  • RonyarRonyar Member Posts: 369
    ^what part of Texas?
  • Thanos75Thanos75 Member Posts: 1,117
    I found a very nice unexpected deal at my local Wal-Mart. It didn't show up as being in stock on the app...but I found a couple #76021 Milano for $35 each...... A couple #75043 AT-AP sets for $17 each....I wasn't even going for LEGO. The new Barbie movie came out....lol

    Found (3) #70145 Maula's Ice Mammoth Stomper at $35 a piece.  Bought one and left the other two.  If you're interested it was the Lake St. Louis Walmart at Hwy N (364) in Missouri.

    "walmart texas"....that narrows it down to 1 of 50 states.  :smile: 

    BTW, nice find.

    my bad, walmart houston texas, south post oak, I went back and got 3 more turtle vans. I normally only grab the bg exclusives unless things are marked 50% or greater.

    @canuhandle23 thanks for the clarification. I looked at that store on the Walmart app out of curiosity, and it said the camper was "unknown at that location." Let's just say I'm a bit mistrustful of Walmart's inventory system at this moment. Good for you that you found something actually on sale though!
  • canuhandle23canuhandle23 Member Posts: 104
    yeah i dont trust the app that much I go to stores. Since it will say one item ill get there and be like 6. On a side note do the turtles on the tv show use breathing mask alot since a few of the sets have the minifigures with the mask.

    also seen the small turtle set with leonardo on the skateboard for  dollars. I have seen atleast 5 stores with stocks 10 or greater
  • luckie_reubsluckie_reubs Member Posts: 299
    The Milano spaceship is showing up at $35 and OOS at all of our area Walmarts; that's a really bummer because I'd have loved to have grabbed them there at that price.
  • Thanos75Thanos75 Member Posts: 1,117
    They showed as out of stock at all the stores around me aswell. So I was very surprised when I saw them.
