    I picked all of these up at the Walmart in Gun Barrel City, Texas.

    75209 Han Solo's Landspeeder $13.00
    75207 Imperial Patrol Battle Pack $7.00
    60170 Off-Road Chase $1.00
    30528 Mini-Master-Building MetalBeard $2.00 (Lego Movie 2 marked down before the film comes out!)

    And finally 

    31084 Pirate Roller Coaster $35.00

    I've always liked Gun Barrel City. Sounds like a made up town in a '90s videogame.

    Found in Roseville.


    In addition, I saw 
      #75219 AT Hauler $49
      #60195 Arctic Exploration Base $59
      #75206 Jedi & Clone Troopers Battle Pack $7

    The shelf tags for all of these were clearance prices, but all higher than what they scanned in the app, so I checked a LOT of stuff.

    Went to a local Walmart for the popcorn poly and wound up getting:
    #60195 Arctic Exploration Base $59
    #30404 Friends flower x3 $2 each
    #30407 Harry's journey to Hogwarts $2
    #31077 Sweet shop $17
    #75930 Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate$64

    As @Astrobricks said, had to scan a lot of stuff (running back and forth to the the only scanner around in the cosmetic aisle)
    Some items like the Pirate coaster and Hogwarts express I wish came up on a big discount, but these were coming up cheaper than the shelf tags.
    Almost did not check the #60195, but figured to do it since I was there. Glad I did. and glad I checked out the JW set as well, as it is one of the one's my GF was looking for but did not want to have to pay retail for it.

    Good finds. I'm watching the JW sets and the pirate coaster closely. Those are still at retail here. I haven't seen the popcorn cart yet either.

    @madforLEGO When going to Walmart, use their phone app to scan items so that you don’t have to use their scanners.

    I picked up the Arctic Mobile Base on clearance and built it today. I wanted the woolly mammoth, but the retail price was too much. Fun vehicles assortment.

    Sounds like I need to do better about making trips to WalMart more often
  • f2iso100f2iso100 United StatesMember Posts: 35
    To be fair, these deals only come around about two times a year in this quantity - January, after the Christmas buildup of stock, and then July when they do a big reset.

    Found a #75930 for $54 this morning. My local Walmart usually gets picked clean of any great deals quickly, but I found this stashed behind other stuff.

    #10895 - Emmet & Lucy's Visitors from the Duplo Planet - $15 (50% off).

    Found 2 of them in one of two carts piled full of clearance toys. This is crazy for a brand new set isn't it?

    Just wanted to say Thank You for the tip on the Old Fishing Store at Walmart! Lost 1 that was in my cart while I was signing in yesterday but after checking back 5 times today got one. I just love the set and was really caught off guard when it disappeared after the $100 sale at LEGO.

    I'm seriously hating Brickseek right now. Showing Limited stock on 75212 on 2 Walmarts in my area but neither have them. Asked around and everyone seems oblivious as to what I'm talking about. Same deal with a phone that shows a Stock of 6, and no one can find it/them.

    Had that with 3 #75756 (grand hall) sets at one local Walmart, with the employee gadget saying they were in the LEGO aisle but that was cleared out, partly due to the lack of sets since Christmas and partly due to the move to the clearance aisle (and they were not there either). My guess is either they are in back, somehow 3 were stolen, or they are still in the store, but hidden away somewhere, and I do not have 3 days to overturn every nook and cranny looking for them (and already checked the toy and the electronics sections) as much of a good deal as they were.

    I think the other annoyance is seeing some stores clear out #31084 (pirate Roller coaster) for $35 but others sitting on them for $72 a piece, and even moving them to the clearance aisle (same with the #75955 Hogwarts express sets).
    I get that brickseek is not the end all be all (and like they note on the site they cannot control errant stock information due to theft, hiding of products, mistakes in the stores systems, etc), and quite frankly I'm also just frustrated with Walmart stores doing difference things with regards to clearance prices

    I just had similar disappointment. Brickseek shows 40 Unikitty blindbags in stock for 75 cents each at local Walmart. After spending an hour searching the store with 3 different reps, cannot find them. One remembered moving them from the normal shelf location, but after that they seemingly disappeared. 2 days later they still show 40 on Brickseek. Brickseek seems to be tied in with the inventory system at Walmart, so they probably are somewhere in the building, and will turn up the next time they reset the Lego section.

    My Walmart (Woodburn, Oregon) finally did their turn over in the LEGO aisle - plenty of new polys to be found (Popcorn Cart, TLM2) along with TLM2 sets finally and many of the other 2019 wave. Took them long enough!

    You are quoting the wrong set number and set name! 75756 is not even a set number, and it's the Great Hall (75954) not Grand Hall. THAT'S ANNOYING! Do better! LOL

    Yo yelling at someone who has made thousands of helpful comments on this forum over minutia is annoying. No one is obligated to offer info and tips for sales and deals. In fact, there are quite a few members with 3 or fewer comments...

    should i be worried?  I completely understood what sets were being discussed in @madforLEGO ;posting.  Set number wrong, name of set wrong but I still got it!  If you text with auto correct off you know what I speak of...

    @Bumblepants, exactly!

    Remember, just as Brickseek warns on their site, there are several reasons why quantities might be off, among them theft which I imagine is very common for blind bags and polys.

    Does anyone have a Brickset link for the TLM2 CMF blind bags yet?
  • pxchrispxchris Oregon, USAMember Posts: 529
    Opps... complete typo on my part - I meant a Brickseek link... specifically for Walmart inventory. Wanting to keep an eye out for when they pop up in my area.

    Another example of how it pays to look on the top shelf - I found a slightly beat up #75955 Hogwarts Express for $35 at Bloomington.

    There are literally hundreds of the Unikitties for $1 at Walmarts around me. I never thought I would leave any $1 minfigs or polybags on a store shelf. But I completely convinced myself that they would all turn out to be the same one when I opened them.

    I'm holding out for $0.50 or lower on unikitty. One of my stores has them unmarked on the bottom shelf in a side aisle full of toys.

    I came across a WM that had the Harry Potter minifigs for $1.00. There was only one left. I looked around for some more but didn't find any. I did find two from the 40th Anniversary series. I ended up with Lord Voldermort, Cactus Girl, and Rocket Guy.

    Got burned with a recent Walmart find -- the Star Wars Solo Movie Imperial AT-Hauler.  Looked ok when I bought it but upon opening it up the figs were all gone as were many other parts.  Be careful when bargain shopping!
