    They also had the City and Star Wars advent calendars (about 3 cases of each by the looks of it) for $15 each. I nabbed a Star Wars set. :D

    Yes, Walmart. :)

    @legoDad if that Batcave goes any lower I'd be happy to take it!
    Willing to wager you'll also find #4502 in that mix!

    So far I found 7166, 7124, 7300, 7315, 7311, 7141, and 6546.  Most of the Lego stuff is in great shape.

    ^^ I got it for $69.99 (thanks for price matching, Target!), that's a great deal. Totally worth it, in my opinion.

    Also, kudos for the self control, @LEGO_Dad77, I need to work on that...

    Found a minotaurus game in Acorns for 8.99 - a useful parts pack, especially considering it is almost new, and has extra parts and a classic green baseplate!

    Just got these 3 large posters from a friend who works in smyths. I now realise they combine so have to cheekily ask him for the other knights!

    found Minotaurus and Wild Wool (Shave a Sheep) for $1 each at a thrift shop. Minotaurus had the base plate and half the bricks and the other was about 90%, but great for $2!

    I would have to say the $.99 dimension series 1 sets are a pretty good find, especially the level packs like #71204 & #71203.  If you live near a 99 Cent store go look for them, they are going fast.

    #41093 Heartlake Hair Salon, missing one minidoll, instructions and box
    #41103 Pop Star Recording Studio, missing minidoll and box
    #41092 Stephanie's Pizzeria, missing minidoll, instructions and box
    #41112 Party Cakes, missing instructions and box
    all jumbled together in a bag for $5.99 from the local thrift store. When I found the bag with #41103 instructions I figured that was all that was in the bag, so the other 3 sets were an unexpected bonus.

    Just took a trip to a thrift/charity shop. Got a 32x32 green baseplate for $1. Needs cleaned, but it's in good shape otherwise.

    They also had a #21116 Minecraft Crafting Box. It had obviously been opened and was taped shut. It felt about the right weight. They wanted $20. I couldn't pull the trigger out of fear I was buying a bunch of off-brand bricks. We'll see if it sticks around until it goes on sale. I'd gladly pay a few bucks for it!

    Craigslist success!! $170 and brand spanking new!

    Not sure if that's good enough of a deal to post about it, but I am STOKED!
    Got mine for $140 :P (Technically, it's been opened and the parts are re-bagged, but the box is undamaged and the pieces are in brand new condition)

    Found 75918: T-Rex Tracker($69 MSRP) for $20 at Walmart yesterday ... just sitting there on a shelf among all the other LEGO sets with no price tag on it. I thought it was odd to be still on the shelf ... so I scanned it!

    After looking around further in the $20 bin I also found two classic yellow Lego spacemen. Ultra happy because these are the first classic spacemen I have ever owned. Must say that these are awesome!!

    My seven year-old daughter tells me that 'AUD' means a 'mazillion billion' dollars.

    Sumo - When I look at the RRP of some sets here in Oz, I can't help but agree with your daughters assessment!

    My most recent best buy would have to be the Spider-Man Web Warriors Bridge Battle for £53.99 in the Liverpool One Disney Store.

    Just wandered through Target and found 76034 Bat Boat Harbor Pursuit laying by itself.
    I scanned it at a price checker and for some reason they had it priced at $13.99!
    I scooped it up as I needed Deathstroke.

    $1 polybags and some Walgreens and Wal-mart clearance specials.  $45 for 70317 - The Fortrex.  Threw in the 70903 Riddler Racer so I could use the $10 off $50 coupon at Target.

    No, but the 99c only store in Conroe (NE of Houston) has a bunch of Portals, Scooby-Do and Krusties still

    NASA facilities doesn't visit themselves (and I'm talking the real one, not the tourist one).
  • AllBrickAllBrick UKMember Posts: 1,404
    ...and I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all these.  I feel like I'm just visiting the 99c store to help them move inventory at this point.

    Share the bargains, sell some to fellow Bricksetters and triple your money.

    I scored the Birmingham John Lewis store display Wall-E. Aside from about 10 parts at most, he's complete. A steal at 20 - especially when the box is still there!

    Total of 33 sets I bought last weekend.  Paid 450 for everything.  Can I share YouTube video?

    Just got 2 2016 Star Wars advent calendars from Wal-Mart for $9 each!

    I picked up  at Barnes and Noble. They had 25% marked down and I get a 10% discount. Today I picked up at Walmart. I'd been waiting for the price to hit a low point. The store I found it at was the one that got all of them on a return when another store had them marked down to $35. I got mine for $50.
