I don't know if the mods want to move this topic to the Shopping U.S/Canada but I stopped in my local B & N today and there were a number of LEGO sets 50% off. Here's what was at my small B&N:
#21118 Minecraft The Mine - 50% off $119
#70748 Ninjago Titanium Dragon
City Swamp Helicopter
#60091 City Deep Sea Starter Set and a few cheaper $9.95 and under city sets
#75089 Star Wars Geonosis Troopers
#75075 Star Wars AT-AT microfighters
#75074 Star Wars Snowspeeder microfighters
#70818 Lego Movie DOuble Decker Couch
#76025 SUper Heroes Green Lantern vs. Sinestro
and there were several $19.95, $14.95 Princess-Cinderella sets
'LEGO Clearance at Barnes and Noble*'
*LEGO excluded from offer/sale
A guy was in the process of grabbing every single set that was on sale. I only managed to grab a few because he was carrying them back to the cash register a few at a time and gave me a window of opportunity.
Anyway, I got my hands on the following at 50% off each:
#60035 Artic Outpost
#60036 Artic Base Camp
#60068 Crooks' Hideout
#60075 Excavator and Truck
I had no Artic or Swap Police sets before (except for a couple of promo polybags) and only had my eye on #60075.
No details yet - just got off the phone with my wife who ran by there on her way home. She grabbed three bags full of sets that looked like ones I'd want, so anxious to see what they are!
(Yes, I do know that I'm a lucky guy :-)
My wife did however get a few Duplo for the kids as well as some City sets and a Creator Beach Hut plus a few smaller Creators. She was totally buying on spec! :-)
Now I need to decide if the City sets are useful for their bricks as I'm not really collecting/building the City theme.
Also a green baseplate, which was a weird thing to have on clearance.
Oh, and a couple Lego Movie Couches! :-)
I'm wondering if they change the clearance items based on region or if this store was just misinformed?
It should, regardless if it's a Lego set or not.
I didn't mention this detail because I assumed it was just an oversight by this one store, but maybe it's more general than that? Curious if those who saw nothing on sale asked, or did what I would have done and just left? :-)
But knowing that your wife found some by asking, I may have to change my tactic.
#75075 micro at-at
#75089 geonosis troopers x2
#21107 minecraft micro world the end
#41092 friends Stephanie's pizzeria
#41061 Disney princess Jasmine's exotic palace x2
Im going to hit a couple other stores in my area to see if I can find any others.
Amazingly, my wife (yes, again) was near one of them and snagged a Minecraft Mine, another Beach Hut, and a City set Deep Sea Helicopter as well as a small Lego Movie set (not sure which one).
I now have several City sets on spec that I need to decide what to do with...
#76025 Super Heroes Green Lantern vs. Sinestro $9.97
A lady at the store just called to say they have one, but it is a clearance item, and they can't hold it, so she has to cancel the reservation. She said she wanted to call to let me know they did have one. Then she said she was just going to set it at customer service with a post-it note with my name on it and forget she did it. :)
I know where I'm going after work!
My reservations for clearance The Mine and Beach Hut did result in confirmation texts.
My wife got there to pick them up literally a couple minutes after I received the confirmations, and they had them off the floor and in a holding area.
This was one of the "Bookstar" B&N locations, so maybe those have slightly different policies?
problem is: red stickers weren't on them. Had an employee scan and check.
Then the Minecraft kids become adults with money to burn. ;)
But I like the translucent pieces and tiles...and bricks...
was able to pick up the Milano, x-men quinjet and crooks hideout.
60068 Crook's Hideout
They also had two of the 60035 Arctic Outpost but someone else grabbed both of them before I could get one.
