So far I've order 3 copies of winter toy shop from the Lego Store in downtown Chicago and picked up a Black Pearl fr Target for $69.

    Some friends and I went to the shop at Water Tower Place but just to burn some time until dinner by building mini-figures. I bought a second of a small Pharaoh's Quest set but that was just an impulse purchase. I asked a couple employees about Series 6 and while they all told me that it wouldn't go on sale for a while longer, one did confide that the boxes had arrived and that he'd already secured himself a couple figures including the Roman legionary.

    On the topic of After-Christmas sales, I haven't bought anything yet and probably won't get anything again until January. Every set that Lego is offering on Shop-at-Home are those that I've already got my fill of though I might get a couple more of a few of them; still undecided on that. On the positive side, I had a nice two weeks' travel and got to see some people I hadn't seen in months so that always trumps Lego purchases.

    I'll visit tomorrow when I get back into town. I'm not holding my breath but I think PQ and Atlantis may be on my list. We'll see what happens.

    I too was at the Lego Store at Water Tower Place and picked up a lot of sets. Battle of Endor, Winter Toy Shop, MMV, Robber's Hideout, and a bunch of others. Had three large bags full of sets when I left.

    I only got one item that was on sale: Republic Dropship w/ AT-OT which was $75 off original price. I also picked up Robber's Hideout, Recycle Truck and DC Heroes Catwoman set.

    Got these items from Walmart, plus 2 regular Advent Calendars, a Star Wars Advent Calendar, and a 10199 Toy Shop from the LEGO store.

    I picked up several advent calendars at $20 from both Walmart and the lego stores...
    Also got a couple of the city ones for $17 from lego store.... but my best haul was the 8129 AT-AT for 20% off from the lego store (plus 5% off VIP) not bad...

    I must say that I was dissapointed given the amount of stores I visited... Ended up spending a lot less than I was planning, but who knows, maybe there will be better sales next weekend.....

    Was surprised to see that not only lego but all stores in general had very disappointing sales....

    I didnt get any where near as much as I was hoping for. From [email protected] only got Winter Bakery and 2 Pharoahs Quest battle packs. Other than that ALien Conquest Earth Defence for £59 from Tesco, Scorpion Pyramid for £45 and Kings Carriage ambush for £24 from The Entertainer. All I needed to complete a few themes... Hoping for more next week with better discounts!

    Today I went to WM and picked up Slave 1 and Mace Windu's Starfighter for 50% off. IF they still have them next week at 1 store I might pick up the PQ Pyramid.

    All I bought was a measly (5) 7235 MCs at [email protected] Total was $21.90 including tax and shipping.

    I wouldn't call it a hall but 1 of each of the winter village sets and 1 burrows set, actually ended up buying more regular priced items than sale items.

    I myself have gotten ( from christmas presents , self reward ..etc)

    #7929 Battle of Naboo ( love the 10 droids it comes with and the new Gungans)
    #7959 Geonosian Starfighter
    #7913 Storm trooper battle pack ( love the detail on the ARF trooper and the bomb squad trooper)
    #7569 Prince of Persia Desert attack ( was only $7.99 plus the assassins it comes with are legit)
    #7572 Prince of Persia Quest Against Time ( got it about 3 hours ago... fantastic set)
    #4865 Harry Potter the Forbidden Forest ( the minifigs are superb)
    #4737 Harry Potter Quidditch Set
    #4866 Harry Potter Knight Bus ( I recommend due to the high count of purple bricks..great for Mocs plus it comes with a shrunken head piece)
    #4736 Harry Potter Freeing Doby

    its not much but I follow certain themes and I find these buys fantastic. Since I am still a student an I dont have much money ( too many concerts and trips to Panera bread) but its pretty good considering I only get $30-40 a month doing the paper

    I got a sw advent calendar, 2 alien conquest hqs, blacksmith attack, and winter bakery, pharaohs quest battle pack and a small alien conquest set don't remember the name.

    If anyone picked up any snow trooper battle packs, slave 1, or kings carriage ambush and wants to trade for my spare alien conquest hq (or sell) and is in the southern california area let me know!!

    Well, it was limited - I had a few sets that I was really 'after' - but was not able to get out to the stores right away.

    I did pick up from my local Walmart (with a 10% discount from previous transaction):
    7326-1: Rise of the Sphinx for $22 (only one left)
    3648: Police Chase for $11 (only one left)
    -There was a TON of Ninjago sets, but because there was so many, I thought that I would wait a few days and see if the price drops.

    From Craigslist and Ebay I found:
    5615: The Knight for $1.50
    7097: Troll Mountain Fortress for $80
    4195: QAR for $80
    5987: Dino Research Compound for $60 (Open Box, Bags sealed; missing instructions)

    I am very content with my purchases. Outside of the Kingdoms realm (I own multiples of all sets) I did not find 2011 to be a GREAT year of sets for me, so I have been searching for older sets. It looks like 2012 will mean the same as 2011 for me.
