I also did a walmart clearance run this weekend, hit 6 or 7 stores in which all were supposed to have 4-5 things at 50% or so and I came out with 2 sets in total from all the stores.
It would seem the app right now and brickseek have some major issues due to something in walmarts system.
I also noticed a bunch of "in stock" sets show as sold by walmart.com and not the store, but they do show same day pickup. I'm wondering if walmart is starting to hoard some sets in the back and hope people will buy at full price via the site.
Then again and argument for or against this by anyone else is appreciated.
I had one Walmart that showed 2 Millenium Falcons in stock at $109,went to the store & nothing on shelf.I asked an employee to scan the barcode & tell me if they have them.He found nothing,a manager came by & scanned it & he said "they're on a truck but we won't have those in stock anymore". I replied "so that means you have them,but you don't have them....."
Came back early the next day & there they were,two brand new MF in crisp boxes, scanned at $109
And the best one:
2x 60080-1 for $30.00, store still had 3 or 4 left, intially scanned with walmart app and price said $102 and they had stickers with $89.00 on them. Had to use instore scanner to get real price.
1x 31039-1 for $17.00, left a beat to hell one behind.
Was "fun" carrying a half a dozen sets to the scanner and checking prices since the app is completely useless at checking prices anymore.
I wish I could find some of the deals at my local Walmart that some of you have found. I went to Walmart last night because I wanted to pick up a small lego minecraft set to use on top of a cake for my son's 8th birthday party. I was so happy to find the Iron Golem set. I love the design of this set so much. I ended up picking up the end portal as a gift. I've been sucked back into this theme.
I'd like to think that the damned set it hiding somewhere if it got another markdown...then again the same store had two sets that were sealed shut with brown tape and you could hear every brick bouncing around so who knows what they are doing!
Also happy birthday to your son!
I don't think I'll be returning to Walmart anytime soon.
I ask because I've been to many Walmarts here in California and I can never find polybags anywhere. I've even checkjed their front register areas and nothing. I have heard of some good polys being sold there but I can never seem to find them :(
1. star wars poly right on the lego aisle
2. poly bags in the clearance junk pile of toy section
3. an actual endcap display at the very end of toy section by electronics
Otherwise I never see them
#75106: (Imperial Assault Carrier) $30.00 (Not a miss-print!) The box was trashed and taped shut but had all 9 parts bags inside!
#70737: (Ninago Mech Battle): $15.00
#70736: (Ninago Morro Dragon): $17.00
#70748: (Ninago Titanium Dragon): $9.00
#41072: (Elves Spa): $9.00
