Re: Yay or Nay

Did you say Bionicle has appreciated as well? I don't see that at all. I need some good examples. Bionical (nay) I would say the haunted house, (yay), but I beleive it depends on several factors, one being the life of the set. If this set is available for say 5 years, all bets are off and the marke...

Re: Imperial Shuttle 10212 At Amazon For $209

I am not trying to dump on this deal at all...but I think people opening up a credit card for this deal should think twice. A Hard Pull on your credit report should be worth a lot more than this discount to you. I have read up about various Credit Card deals, and they say $100 cash isn't enough for...

Re: LEGO Star Wars Set #8091 Republic Swamp Speeder $19.99

Price per piece is not very good, but considering it is retired, sells for 30% more on ebay and has several figs, I got two. Thanks for the post.

Are there any sets that are not marked up 25% above MSRP?

Re: Toys R Us (USA) Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off 11/25-12/1

It's not that SW has fallen out of favor but the markup from MRSP is now sooo high the discounts don't matter. (9_9) I think you have a good point about the markup. However, my contact at the local Lego store told me that SW is not selling well at all and Ninjago is selling very well, along with Fr...

Re: Target Black Friday USA

I passed up several Black Perals on clearance at walmart for $69, and they sat on the shelf for weeks. So I sure ain't going to pay $75 for a so called "door buster". I think they will be around untill after x-mas, just like other sets years in the past when the prices were even better.

Re: Toys R Us Black Friday Deal

This is sad. Retailers have ruined Black Friday (changed it to Thursday night) and the sales too. Black Friday used to be something to look forward to, not now. I have never seen such a bunch of pathetic so called "door busters" in all my life. I would not even consider stepping foot in the store at...

Re: [USA] Target Sale November 18-21

Don't forget about price-matching. I haven't seen a TRU yet that DIDN'T have the pod-racers set in stock, and a lot of Walmarts still have them too. Maybe this is Targets way of getting back at Walmart for all the price matching they had to do for the $40 miners set (4204) a few weeks ago. See, Tar...

I just ran across two sets that were returned (because I have been to the WalMart enough to recognize the items weren't there before) and they didn't feel right. I looked closely and the tape seemed sealed, but....there was a small piece of scotch tape over the LEGO tape. I asked the cashier if we ...

Re: [USA] Target January 2012 Clearance Finds

They would have sold it to you. The handheld PDA's still have the last clearance price which was 50% most likely. Agreed. I asked a guy with a PDA working the dept about it beforehand, so I took a $0 Portal Atlantis to the checkout which still had $49.99 price tag and they sold it to me for that. T...
