    found 

    LEGO Constraction Star Wars Sergeant Jyn Erso 75119


    for $5 and now seems not a very good deal!


    The one by my work in Pleasanton had one in stock for $54.

    The stores in my area that were showing $6.97 (but weren't put out yet) have all upped the price to $54.  Anyone who picked up extras want to trade a Constraction Obi-Wan for a Biker Scout :) ?

    Strange.  I didn't manage to find one of the Scout troopers for $7, but some of the stores that listed the item as out of stock for $7 earlier this morning now show $54.

    Went to 6 stores today, trying to find the d*** scout trooper.  found tags for $6.97 but no scout.  One store had them in stock but when scanned came up at that stores ticket price of $54.  However, picked up a lot of others I thought would have been long since sold out, so not a complete fail:
    $2.50   #75125   
    $2.50  #75126
    $2.50  #75161
    $2.50 #75362
    $2.50  #75364
    $2.50 #75365
    $2.50 #75366
    $2.50 #70318
    $2.50 #70336
    $2.50 #75525
    $2.50 75120
    $2.50 #75121
    $2,50 #70337
    $4 #10616
    $4 #75165
    $5 #10590
    $7 #75152
    $7 #70350
    $7 #70320
    $9 75824
    $11 #75147

    $13 #70625
    $13 70351
    $15 #70626
    $15 #75825

    But the surprise was #76077 for $7

    My local Walmart (Hermantown MN) had added a number of smaller sets overnight, #70337 for $2.50 and #75116 and #75119 for $5.00 each.  Not the best, but enough to entice me.  Also had a Duplo bulk brick set for $25.00.

    I just stopped by one of the Walmart stores by me and grabbed #75148 for $15.

    Was also able to pick up:

    #70336 : $1 (x2)
    #70337 : $1
    #75126 : $1
    #15128 : $1
    #75119 : $2
    #75525 : $5 

    I guess I got these for so cheap since the Next Knight Sets were mixed in with this year's buildable mechs and the series 3 micro fighters were mixed with the series 4 micro fighters. Pretty good camo with the other boxes.

    I found 20 Nexo Knights Series 1 combo power packs tonight for $1 each.
  • not12fallnot12fall Member Posts: 65
    Picked up Kylo Ren Shuttle #75104 for $30.  Store seems to be slowly trickling what it is putting on sale. Luckily they did not change price on shelf because it was the last one.  Had to scan to know it was $30.

    Family member snagged me a #41179 Queen Dragons Rescue for $2! Still shocked about that one. Over 800 bricks in that set.

    Saw a dozen #75119 at Walmart in New Haven, CT yesterday for $5 each, bought just one. Even at $5, these seem to be stuck to the shelves.

  • samiam391samiam391 A Log Cabin in KY, United StatesMember Posts: 4,251
    There was about 8-10 at one Walmart for $2.50.

    I looked at the box, chuckled, and set it back on the shelf. I don't need those souless eyes peering at me from the bookcase late at night.

    ^ I guess having something on the shelves for one entire week is just too much for them. 

    "These have been here for seven days?!? We'll never get rid of them! Put them on clearance and get them out of here!"

  • Switchfoot55Switchfoot55 The Northwest, USAMember Posts: 1,462
    ^That's weird. My local stores have the idea, "Oh, it's been on the shelf for 10 weeks, let's maintain the price indefinitely..."
  • IceCreamCloneIceCreamClone Chicago-ishMember Posts: 70
    My stores have the logic of "every other store in the state is putting the items on clearance, let's not."

    @CaptainRogers I remember back in 2013-ish I was at a walmart that had a very damaged copy of #9493 (the box was practically flat) on the shelf. It had a clearance sticker for $60, which was the exact MSRP, and it was even in the clearance aisle.

    Funny, I ran across that Chima mammoth today in a clearance aisle for $30, but even though it's a pretty cool looking set for Chima, it wasn't cheap enough for me to buy.

    I did pick up two #70366 Battle Suit Lance for $2.50 each. Yay, I now own two Nexogons!

    @Astrobricks It seems in a lot of places the lifespan of sets is getting shorter. I mean seriously, a set that's only been out half of a year already hitting 75% off? That would never have happened a couple of years ago. I guess there's just so much new stuff coming out that they don't have room to keep some things around.

    Not as good, but they are on sale for 3.19 (I think) at LEGO [email protected] US right now. Not really any 'army builders' to speak of so they sold what they did and now they have leftovers, not surprising.

    ^ the only good one for army building was the Arkham Joker for the orange jumpsuit. I bought doubles of a few for parts, but the Joker was the only one I got multiples of.

    Just for those who want premiums.

    walmart doesn't have a limited figure but they have a lunchbox with its own cape.

    Suddenly, I've gone from not caring about the buildable figures to owning several of them. The list of $5 ones I now own is: Darth Vader, First Order Stormtrooper, Finn, Jyn, Death Trooper, Baze, Chirrut, and K-2SO. Stupid LEGO addiction.

    Also found #75104 - Kylo's Shuttle and #70323 - Jestro's Lair for $40 each. Have wanted to shuttle for a while. Not into Nexo Knights personally, but my son has all the Ultimate sets and seems to have a growing interest in it. At $40, I bought 2 for the parts and for the ability to make the lair even bigger. Excited to build him a mega lair for his birthday coming up in July.
    I got the buildable figure deal. I was never really going to get any but suddenly, bling! I have some thanks to an awesome sale.

    I wanted to check local prices on a couple of sets on the Walmart app just to find out they did an update. Instead of showing stock/price levels of all stores near me at once, I can only look at each store one at a time. Could be worse, I know, but it's been nice finding good deals around town the old way.
  • AstrobricksAstrobricks Minnesota, USMember Posts: 2,375
    Found a full case plus a few of S17 CMFs at Eden Prairie store tonight. I'm pretty sure I got the only Rocket Boy.

    I called a local store again this morning as they are showing 8 Ecto 1&2's in stock at $15 again. The response was not what I had hoped,  

    "We're not sure where they're at. We figure they all got stolen..."

    Well thanks again for nothing Walmart.

    Will be watching to see the price change at my WMs.

    Their section was small enough to begin with, and now it's going to be completely empty (like Target's and Best Buy's) except for the Starters.
