Re: 2016 LEGO Bricktober & Building Events Details - ToysRUs

Which other Star Wars mini-figures were available on Nov 12 at the trade-in? My son found a stormtrooper, x-wing pilot & AT driver. Usually 4 figures but some kids came in to our local store with a bucket full of old City people and scooped up almost everything.

Re: Walmart.ca Lego Friends Advent Calendar

^Probably because it's not much of a deal. TRU typically puts stuff on sale for 20% off if you wait long enough. People still remember when Clearance actually meant Clearance at Walmart. Not just $10 off a $100 set.

Re: Hobbit Goblin King Battle (79010) on Clearance at TRU

Sold out or not, it's nice to see some deals coming back on the market. Been a bit of a drought it seems since Target took their net and went home in a huff.

Re: [CAN] Walmart clearance YMMV

It's not a deal, but I find it a bit odd Walmart is listing a Pharaoh set from a few years back:

http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/lego-pharao ... 0014024335

Someone either pulled stock out of a corner of a warehouse, or the listing is wrong.

Re: Target liquidation

Anywhere in the GTA where the selection is still good? I've been thinking of getting the construct-o-mech for a little now. Should have got it when it was on clearance for 30% off during regular clearance prior to the liquidation. Nothing I've seen as of yet. I was in the Newmarket store last week....

Re: Walmart in-store Clearance

WTF? Really ... is some poor price clerk at Walmart about to get fired for screwing up on the clearance stickers? Those are insane prices ... and an insane haul of Lego.

Re: Walmart.ca Clearance

AT-AT showed up on the Walmart.ca site today (saw it tonight) as being available online again for $64. Sadly however it kicked out an error message when you tried to Checkout after going through the process. However, my wife was at a Walmart when I noticed this so she pulled up the online listing th...

supercal wrote:Thanks for the code. I just ordered the B-Wing which I think works out to about 37% off.
Very tempted to do the same! Sets of that value will generate the biggest % off. Wish they had a few other sets in that price range on sale.

Re: Target liquidation

Similar experience to others. Was killing time while waiting for my daughter so I stepped into a Target. They maybe had 20ft of toy shelves in the whole store. 90% of which was Barbie or other dolls like that. I think they are largely a write-off when it comes to any good liquidation deals for Lego....

Re: Target Canada In Store Clearance

^Agree. It will probably be even less of a liquidation process as it was for Zellers given that current stock is so low and that they just cleared a bunch of SKUs out post Christmas. Zellers had a glut of product to dispose of as their prices were so bad and inventory so high. I'm going to miss the ...

Re: Target Canada In Store Clearance

^Around the GTA the ice cream truck was still only 30% off. Mind you, the stores are picked clean of almost everything from what I've seen. A friend at work told me his daughter found a snowman polybag dropped on a shelf in seasonal and it scanned at $1.47.
