    I don't know about a bow but if you move to NWT Canada you can get a polar bear. :P

    Was just bout to leave Toys R Us just as a cashier walked by with a #76032 Quinjet marked down to £38.90 cause it had a damaged box. Bargain for a newish set.

    OMGosh, so excited that I found last year's Christmas' set at Target online today for $69.99. I forgot to buy it last year and was kicking myself. Did buy 5 of them cause I decided I'm going to start posting on ebay. :)

    Just picked up #21105 Minecraft: the Village set at my local Lego store for $8.48. Snapped it up.
  • Prin12sPrin12s OklahomaMember Posts: 47
    This wasn't recent, but I recently discovered how good a deal I got!  Last year at Black Friday I was at Walmart and I picked up (no literally, it was on the floor by the checkout where someone had decided not to get it) a lego creative tower #10664-1 for $20!  I knew it was a good deal, but I stumbled across it on amazon the other day and I was floored by the price!
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 20,484
    The last good deal I got was in Singapore at the start of August. 2x SG50 sets for $50(SGD) each. Someone with a market store in Chinatown had been buying them from local kids and selling them on. I only bought two as I was on my way out, unfortunately on the way back they had all gone.

    Found a brand new #7597 for 80 euro in a small Sicilian town. I also found four old Duplo sets, #2783 through #2786. They were a little high on the price, so I didn't get them, but it was neat to see them!
  • LeeLee ukMember Posts: 138
    Just got set #6499 with the plastic time machine all sealed in the orignal plastic and set #40083, €40 for both together couldn't pass it up!
  • GentlyBenevolentGentlyBenevolent Member Posts: 340

    Got this box of Lego from a work colleague, weight is between 12-13KG & a mix of mainly Star Wars & Indiana Jones. Unfortunately there's no mini-fig's but cannot grumble at the price...... £40 the lot :)

  • SumoLegoSumoLego New YorkMember Posts: 15,153
    ^ So... what did you pay!
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,302
    $401 plus $10 shipping. I thinks a great find. Cheapest one in BL is $600. It also has all 3 instruction books. Finished the inventory. Not 98% complete like I thought but it's only missing 193 pieces out of 3,428. So I'm very happy!
  • pharmjodpharmjod 1,170 miles to Wall Drug, USAMember Posts: 2,916
    I picked up a used once mindstorms ev3 set with box and instructions for $150. Guy even brought it by my work for me.
  • ecmo47ecmo47 North CarolinaMember Posts: 2,101
    Found a rack of series 13 CMF's at the check-out at Target. I'm not a "feeler" but the one on the end was an obvious Hotdog Guy!
  • thenosthenos Twin Cities, MNMember Posts: 444
    Hmm,  so it was happy to see you. 
  • ecmo47ecmo47 North CarolinaMember Posts: 2,101
    What does the price tag say in the upper right hand corner?
  • theLEGOmantheLEGOman UKMember Posts: 1,524
    That would look  nice next to a 1:8 scale Ferrari F1.
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Fairy Land Member Posts: 4,027
    @ecmo47 Most likely the original sale price This along with lots other sealed beauties are currently being held by @joel4motion until they find new homes so thanks to him for the great pics :-)

    So having said that I'd managed to reserve the EOL #75030 at RRP over on the Microfighters discussion, it turns out I hadn't. Following the confirmation email, I received a second email saying it was OOS. >:(

    I thought I'd missed the boat on that one, but I've since managed to pick one up BNIB on eBay for 22% off RRP :)
  • xwingpilotxwingpilot UKMember Posts: 799

    ^ Well so much for buying a BNIB set so I could keep the box mint after building it...

    From what my wife says (she was at home at the time), the postman decided not to knock, but instead to ram the package through the letterbox (despite it being too big). Judging by the noise it made this took quite some effort. In doing so he managed to rip the outer Jiffy bag open and damage all six sides of the box!

    Not impressed. >:(
  • theLEGOmantheLEGOman UKMember Posts: 1,524
    Sounds like my argos order, except mine was left at the door, all boxes crushed and the only sent 4 of 6 items.

    Their computer says i only ordered 4 the reciept shows the correct 6.

    Picked up a #75918 T-rex Tracker from a local Target. Must have been a return, got it for a steal - $23.14 after the 5% red card discount.

    Simpsons house €50 opened but just finished and it's complete with extra simpsons cmfs

    Copped a second Gold C3PO to finish off my Star Wars polybag hierarchy. 

  • GentlyBenevolentGentlyBenevolent Member Posts: 340

    Don't know if you can call this a "brag" but, I have been trying to collect the parts for a Avro Bros Kaneda bike and managed the 6 red X-Pods & the 2 red Scala 6942 dishes, (pic 1), so far & it took a while & a fair few quid, (I bought 2 Scala #3290 houses to get the dishes).

    Then another Scala red dish pop's up on ebay on Saturday on a buy-it-now for the grand sum of £2.00, (pic 2)

    Now I have the rarest, (?), parts for the Akira bike just need a copy of the book now :)

  • chuckpchuckp NYMember Posts: 684
    Took the kids to TRU for some Shopkins (ugh) and found a #44027 Breez Flea Machine. It was even on sale. Yeah, more Batpod parts!
  • ricecakericecake Maryland, USAMember Posts: 878
    @GentlyBenevolent It's a fun build so far, I've only finished the rear half of the bike (I haven't had time to finish it yet).

    For anyone else, I happen to have 6 spare red X-Pod lids available if anyone needs them (I ended up with a total of 12 of them through various sources)...
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Dunes of TatooineMember Posts: 3,639
    ^I've been tempted by the thought, but haven't full on looked into it yet. What's the rough cost in sourcing all the parts for you? And how many parts total does the build take?

    Cost ????, (however much you choose to spend).... :)

    I collected my best Ebay joblot to date last night :) 14KG of 70's & 80's vintage Lego for £87.55. Going by the manuals it should contain #375 #854 #894 #918 #920 #924 #926 #928 #8844 #8845 #8841 #8843 #8851 #8848 #8860 and probably more besides. At least 50 minifigs as well. It will take a fair bit of sorting but I am in vintage Lego heaven right now lol. Gotta love that classic space & vintage Technic.
  • RebelegoRebelego Georgia, USAMember Posts: 171
    I found the body of the Hungarian Horntail in a lot I was sorting. Aslo, won a bid for a new #75105-1 for $125.
  • LegoTTLegoTT Member Posts: 485
    Not a great find, but kind of random. Found a 2011 SpongeBob set at WalMart today. Rang up for $9.00!  Trying to decide if I want to open it or not...thoughts?

    The C3P0 and snowman came from TRU today....nothing special!

    ^ Oh man, where is that Walmart!?! Nice haul.
  • Thanos75Thanos75 Member Posts: 1,120
    They had a whole isle. This Wal-Mart is doing something I have never seen before. They are marking down the clearance every week until it's gone. I will go back for more next week. They had some new sets marked down aswell like the Hulkbuster for $15 and the Ninjago Ronin set for $30.
