Limited example aside, most of the kids I deal with in this age range (daughter's friends + nieces/nephews) are pretty psyched about getting any LEGO. I gave a few Chima sets a chance, but there are so many odd pieces in them that our LUG has even started passing up on them as cheap draft sets.
Still haven't acquired a Lonely Mountain set. :(
I bought Darkseid Invasion when it first came out for $10 less than MSRP because they had it marked down as their original price. I have seen since it went back up to official MSRP.
I was at two (2) Targets today and both stores the Milanos are now gone...each had two last week...can't imagine they sold, but you never know.
One Target moved most of their stuff to 30% off..still 8-10 #79017 priced at $41.xx. The smaller Target moved some Chima to 50% off.
#60035 Artic Outpost now down to $25.98.
I was also able to get a Architecture White House for $24.98 and the Minecraft 'The End' was $24.98
Milano still at $99.99
Icebite's Claw Driller was ~ 33 less 20%
Knowhere Escape Mission ~ 33 less 20%
Flying Phoenix Fire Temple
Several Ultra Agents sets
2x Five Armies
i wonder if the "LIMIT 20/Person" is actually in effect then...
I can also confirm that the cartwheel coupon seems to be working on clearance Lego. I used it on a Milano, which was on "clearance" for regular price, but at least I managed to save a little bit. Knowing how people are in my area, I think I would have missed out if I waited for a further drop. I decided to go today instead of yesterday, and that cost me the last three BotFA's in my area. It felt too shady to try to use it on regular price Lego, so I didn't bother.
Also, I found a number of Superhero sets and miscellaneous City sets that had been open and had minifigures stolen. The thief just left all the parts and empty boxes strewn about the shelves. I asked the employees if I could buy the remaining parts at a discount, but he said it probably wouldn't be worth it for me as they could probably only authorize a 10-15% damaged box discount. I left losing a little faith in humanity for the people that would so blatantly destroy a toy to make a few bucks.
