Nothing in the store indicated that there was clearance LEGO in the back for 50% off.
There was one last
Hogwarts Express, a Emperor Palpatine's Shuttle, a Slave-1, a couple of Carriage Ambush, and some other misc. sets. At the time the clone-trooper pack I found still scanned for full price.
As far as Walmarts go, I found nothing of the great finds a lot of you did. My local Walmarts never had anything after Christmas to begin with. My only so called good find was two Burrows at one store. The only sets I was able to get were wind's, plocoon's, and freeco's. Picked up a few SW advents as well.
One Walmart had a whole end cap of SW advents & a ton of Series 5
No polybags on sale anywhere
Only one Walmart had a "decent" selection -- lots of Ninjago but I don't buy that
Lots of Cars stuff but I had no interest
Hogwarts, the Hut , the bus & the Castle were never on sale
Don't think any Alien stuff was on sale anywhere
Except for Legoland and time spent with my boys, it was definitely not worth the trip. I have a good stockpile of birthday/christmas gifts. Cant' see the little SW sets appreciating much but at $12.50 to $20 I couldn't resist.
Anyone have any luck here in Socal?
1 Slave 1
2 Windu SF's
1 Emperor's Shuttle
8 Snowtrooper packs
One walmart had a hogwarts, a hogwarts castle, and 9 burrows but none of them were clearance! I tried though!!! lol
If anyone is near me (Nashville, TN) there were 2 Slave Is at the Walmart by Skyline earlier today, plus other Star Wars sets, some Ninjago, PQ, Racers, Cars. They were in the Christmas clearance, not the Toys clearance or the Lego aisle.
I found a number of sets that I did not buy, including larger sets.
I did come away with everything I really could have wished for.
Pharoah's quest- 3 different sets, including the large pyramid.
Ninjago- 4 different sets, including two larger ones
Kingdom- 3 different sets, including MVR
Atlantis- City of Atlantis
Star Wars Advent calendar and the Mace Windu set.
Of the stores, I found, but did not purchase Slave, AQ headquarters, the burrow, hagrid's hut, Cars2, and a number of other small sets. The stores also had extra sets of what I did purchase. It was hardest leaving behind The Burrow, but we already have one, and I am not one that resells.
I am very set with Lego sets for my son for a few holidays. :-)
My most exciting finds were the Pyramid, MVR, City of Atlantis, and the Burrow (despite not getting it). I was also excited to find the ice dragon from the Ninjago line. I think that will go nicely with the Kingdom sets, and I already had the Castle stashed from a sale last year.
All of my kids would enjoy that. :-)
I've heard that some walmarts have had CMF 5 discounted but haven't had any luck finding them at any walmarts around me... nothing in the Lego aisles
The store had 119 of them.
Since then, i have not seem them discounted. One of my local Walmarts have 8 cases plus an endcap hanger thing full of them.
I'm looking for an AC Earth Defense HQ, which I'd happily trade a MVR, or anything else I've gotten this week on clearance.
Target had a few things 15% & 30% off... nothing amazing compared to WM. I was really trying to find Target Practice polybags, but found none. I bought a few small 2012 City sets I didn't want to wait for... and picked up 12 Harry Potter polybags at one of the Targets.
One Walmart had no Lego on clearance. Was pretty weird... the only thing I can guess is that it's a new store... inside of 6 months. The other Walmart I visited was CLEANED OUT. There wasn't one item left that was on 50% clearance. Amazing. Now that I know exactly which sets should be on clearance, I'll probably revisit my local store and see if there is anything left.
Going to head down there tomorrow again. I don't plan on buying anymore CMF's as I don't see them as good sellers -- even down the line. My kids get a kick out of opening them and they make good party favors, school gift bags, etc.
Any additional clearance (either further clearance of those sets, or clearance of other sets) will be on a store by store basis at the Manager's discretion, at least that's what my experience over the past year has been.
Also, my local Walmarts are 75% off holiday, but the toys are still 50.
I had already hit those stores on the 26th but had left a lot of stock behind, particularly battlepacks (Dobby/Hoth) and was pretty shocked they were all gone, since the stores all had 100+ of them and last year they lasted a good while.
Only saw 4842 Hogwarts at 1 store, marked down to $100...
Lots of Freecos, Windus, Plocoons
Did not pick up any Dobby's, Ninjago, Pharaoh or Atlantis of which there was plenty.
I went back for a second cart full after this pic.
The only thing I'm finding in stores for 50% off is some of the Ninjago $6.88 sets. Everything else has been sold out for about a week.
