Gumtree is your friend!!!
Just in the process of bottoming out deals for tower bridge, monorail and greengrocer, prob nothing to write home about but certainly not ripoff prices and very excited nonetheless!
I also saw a small police set (either 6681 or 6632?), but it was faded from being near a window so I didn't buy it - I wasn't really collecting yet .
All for £100. Need to go through it and check on parts etc and to see if electrics work. Plus got a load of random block in 2 other boxes. Well happy and glad i followed up on the guy, he was a bit elusive and took forever to pin down.
Shame i'll have to sell some of it.
Target - $19.01 for Temple of Doom in January (didn't ring up at counter, cashier made up price)
K-Mart - $15 last week for both Weasely House + Hero factory Meltdown (they rang up two meltdowns mistakenly and didn't notice until I left)
Also won an ebay auction that included:
8970 Agents Robo Attack
8968 Agents River Heist
5969 SP3 Squidmans Escape
5971 SP3 Gold Heist
5982 SP3 Smash N Grab
7773 Aqua Raiders Tiger Shark Attack
8191 Power Miners Lavatraz
8958 Power Miners Granite Grinder
2258 Ninjago Ninja Ambush
2516 Ninja Training Outpost
30062 Kingdoms Target Practice
Only $91 with free shipping for all those sets! The sets are complete with instructions. Retail value alone is well over $250, not to mention the resale value of some of those sets is extremely high, as many have been retired. I've been looking for the 8970 and 7773 for quite a while as well, so a great day for Lego hunting!
These buggers are difficult to find. This brings my total up to 5. I picked up 2 around Christmas in San Diego from a Target that had a ton. If I knew they were going to be this scarce I would have grabbed more back then.
You don't buy a car (or anything for that matter) and tell the salesman "No no, good sir, that is great discount you're offering me on last year's model, but I know what MSRP is on this and I won't be buying it for a penny less!"
In any case and IMO, it wouldn't be something to add to a brag thread. This would seem to me to be little different than buying a box of Minifigures for $2.99 total. And in similar fashion, I would likely never support a hypothetical thread like, "Target has mispriced the QAR in their system, hurry up and buy before they fix their mistake!". But as I said, it's simply my opinion.
If they ring something up for less than the shelf price, that is their fault and not mine and I would not feel one iota of guilt of taking the item at that price. Now, it would be different if I tried to exploit their mistake by encouraging others to take advantage of the error or if I went back and bought a ton more of whatever it was just so I could make money.
But in this case, if a store cannot bother to keep their database of prices up to date with their stock or a cashier cannot figure out how to scan products at check out, there is nothing wrong with paying the price they charge. Nothing was done to cause the mistake or take undue advantage.
Last week I got 7947-1: Prison Tower Rescue for only $12.50 at Target! I had been eyeing it at $35.00 and was about to breakdown and get it... When I scanned just to check the price $12.49 came up and I almost soiled my pants!
Also a couple weeks ago, I saw a 4996 beach house at walmart with a christmas sticker on it. It rang up for $25. Not a great price, but out of print set :-)
Last year, I went to a church rummage sale right at the end and they gave me a bag of LEGOs for FREE which contained three complete Exploriens sets and one old UFO set (which was missing its minifig). I was buying some Thomas stuff for my first boy and they asked if I wanted that too and just threw it on top.
8018 plus Indy and mutt!
Anyone find anything comparable at NoVA Targets?
Lego System 6160
Plus loads of bits and bob and minifigs.
All for the great price of £40.
The best find ever must be Darth Mauls bust 10018 from [email protected] (of all places). Bought two for roughly $50 each. Runner-up: The Forestmens River fortress 6077 from Ebay. Complete with box in great condition for $40.
