Re: LEGO Igloo - January 2013 Mini Model Build

I guess global warming is doing a number on that igloo? Plus the nerd in me points out that penguins are south pole, while igloos are Arctic. But it's free Lego for kids, so I'll just keep my mouth shut. :)

Re: [USA] Walmart Clearance Sale

I had some good luck last night finding sets that must have been returns or pulled from the back. One Walmart that was pretty much cleaned out on the 26th had a couple Republic Frigates and some other sets. Luckily the taped signs were gone so the clearance wasn't obvious. Nothing like stopping for ...

Re: LEGO Friends Olivia's Desk (30102) at TRU.com

I found this set at Target, but it's only at one of the five or six stores I've been to. The ghost polybag is in every Target, but the Friends set in the Halloween section is either this, the car or the mailbox polybags.

Re: LEGO Store Grand Opening Celebrations (TN, NY, BC, WI)

I am going to go saturday and try to get a Lego Store Set. I'm going to try and get there a couple hours early since i've never been to a grand opening before and i don't know what the lines will be like. This isn't an iPad release. There won't be lines. I'd just show up when the mall opens and get...

Related topic: Does everyone else's Walmart set the self scanner 'beep' sound at a 'blow your ear drum out' volume? I have to cover one ear when scanning things. Yes. Not all of them are like that, but one scanner makes me wince. It's as if they want people at the registers to know someone in toys ...

Re: [USA] Wal-Mart Clearance

Walmarts near me have had Hyperscan controllers on clearance for five years. They don't donate nothing. All it takes is one reseller/Bricklink entrepreneur to make Lego clearance seem like it disappeared.

Re: [USA] Wal-Mart Clearance

Sometimes the clearance toys migrate to the garden section or some other far corner. That happened with one Walmart that restocked its Lego section.

Re: [USA] Wal-Mart Clearance

The only reason it would go on clearance is if they are overstocked. Most (but not all) Cars 2, PotC, and Harry Potter are being discontinued. If your store still has a bunch of PotC sitting on the shelf at full price it almost certainly means they just haven't got around to implementing the new pl...

Re: [USA] Wal-Mart Clearance

My nearest Walmart had the new planogram taped on the shelves and I know it had Hagrid's Hut and the $12 HP set. Can't remember if there were any other HP sets. Hagrid minifigure ain't go out like that, it seems.

It seems that way since the Atlantis HQ is at $18.50 still.
