[Canada] Large Creative Box $40 @ Walmart

My local store is putting them out on Thursday. Get there early if you want one - last year the place was swarmed with resellers buying the entire stock.

The flyer says "limit 2" - hopefully they enforce that...
LEGO, it's not just a toy, it's an addiction... ;)

I followed the link and it says all the stores around the lower Mainland area of BC have them in stock. Has anyone gone to a store and actually seen if they're available?

Well...that's when their next flyer (released tomorrow) takes effect...much like last year's was advertised a week before as a pre-Black Friday special.

I called my local store that showed in stock on the website, but they do not have any in stock. They said they are on the truck tonight.

I bought some last night in Toronto for my nieces and nephews for Christmas so I suspect if it says they're in stock at a store then they're in stock at a store. It looked like about 50/50 for in stock at stores around Toronto.

I was in to a store in Calgary this morning that was showing them as 'in stock', but they weren't on the floor. The person that I talked to said that they were showing as 'in stock' because they were physically present at the store, but that they couldn't put them out until tomorrow. Not surprisingly, it seems like things are somewhat inconsistent from store to store.

I just spoke to a GTA-area colleague who's wife apparently bought seven boxes yesterday. My local Walmart still has them behind closed doors until tomorrow.

Yup...Pre Black Friday sale...17th to 23rd.

In addition to the 1500 Creator and the 193 DUPLO box for $40 they are selling
- the DC/Marvel Micro Heroes(?) for $9.88 (regular $12.88),...says only Catwoman but spiderman is also shown
- Buildable K-3PO and Poe Dameron for $23.88 (regular $29.86), and
- Nexo Knights' The King's Mech or Chaos Chariot for $27.88 (regular $39.86)

They tend to put out stock the night before so might have to go check :-D
I just realized these are the same ones as last year... :lol:

yep, that didn't take long, out of stock. Good thing I checked manually as by the time the email came in saying it was in stock, it no longer was

I checked at 10:15PM MST (thinking this might go live at 12AM EST) and nothing yet so went to bed.
Glad people were able to get it online as I was thinking that it might not go live on their site or I had already missed it. :clap:

All stores near me were sold out within an hour of opening :( I missed out yet again this year.

I just got back from my store. Everybody there was buying two boxes, and thankfully they had signage to support the limit. There were probably 15 left. One of the clerks told me that they ended up putting them out last night after all and sold through them almost entirely before closing.

Just stopped in at my local store in Niagara Falls, and saw the stack sitting there so I grabbed one knowing how fast they went last year. Glad I did, they were already half gone 10 minutes later on my way out.

I was there at store opening and it looked like the stack had been available the night before. Got my 2 and on my way out the the door were another 10 people with 2 each...which means the stack probably only had 20 or so left.

I tried two different Calgary stores this morning. I was at one store by 7:50, and the other by 8:10, but they were sold out both places. It looks like they didn't get much stock -- one store just had one isle end-cap that had a bunch of Duplo ones left (and had previously had some Lego ones) and the other store looked like it got one palette that was mixed Duplo and Lego (again, with just Duplo ones left by the time I got there). I called a third store, and they were also out by the time I called at 8:15. Oh well. I'm glad I got lots of these last year.

Ben...I was waiting to hear your hunt story :-D

If you were checking North Calgary stores it might not have been good. I was talking to a lady in Airdrie last night and she said some of the stores put these out last night and some had not. She even said if you asked a stock person they would go and get it for you, if the pallet wasn't out. I looked online in my area and around work early this morning and already, before opening, some were showing out of stock or low inventory!

Yeah, it sounds like I should have gone looking last night (I tried yesterday morning at Northland, but they said that they weren't putting them out until today. I'm not sure that is actually what ended up happening). Oh well, I did get 2 online... and I didn't exactly need them after the pile of them that I bought last year.
