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.
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....

#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)

#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
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!!
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.
