Walmart.com-Tower Bridge+$40ecard / Haunted house+$30ecard

Post by Marcus70 » Tue Feb 11, 2014 11:17 pm

Looks like Walmart.com is tying to clear out stock of some 10xxx series with ecards (to avoid selling them below MSRP).

Tower Bridge with $40 ecard:

Haunted House with $30 ecard:

Arkham Asylum with $15 ecard

Thanks for the heads up! I've been wanting a Tower Bridge for a long time, so glad to see a deal. Just ordered it.

I've order a large lego set twice before from walmart.com and both times they just stuck a shipping label on the actual lego box. I had to return both because it looked like they were ripped opened and taped back up either by the post office or at the walmart warehouse

Ouch! Hopefully the Tower Bridge will come without any missing bags and parts. I don't mi d of the box is damaged as I'd just toss it anyway. Just need all the parts in good usable condition. Thanks for the warning though. I'll report back when it arrives ;)

Sorry for your luck. Personally, I've ordered these large (10xxx) sets from Walmart.com, with the store-pick-up option, and received pristine boxes. Sounds like it varies a bit.

I have ordered too with ship to store with the boxes in great condition. I emailed Customer Service today and was told the item will be properly shipped in a box.

An update, as promised: my tower bridge was just delivered. Box was on excellent condition. Thrilled to put together my first large set with my son this weekend! Largest thing we built prior was Helm's Deep!

I got my tower bridge from Walmart yesterday (delivered by Fedex)... Just like some previous posts mentioned, it came WITHOUT a package... They just stuck the shipping tag to the side of the original lego paper box!
I also got a 4X4 crawler and a haunted house at almost the same time from walmart.. Strangely, both these two sets were properly packaged.

Complain to them. I was told and received all in boxes with paper cushioning. I'm on the east coast, maybe different procurement methods.

it's possible that they came from different warehouses...but that still doesn't account why some WM warehouses pack the legos in boxes and some don't

Is it still considered MSRP when LEGO isn't suggesting the retail price, but forcing companies to follow it? :lol:

Well, TRU refuses to comply, since they are still adding onto it :lol:

As for Walmart shipping - they seem so inconsistent it's crazy. Not even LEGO but to give you an example - my wife ordered a ceramic oil bottle. They put it in a grey plastic envelope. No padding or anything and of course we received a million pieces. The person working at customer service (we returned it locally) couldn't even believe ANYONE would be that short sighted.

Is doing site to store shipping a possibility for you? Perhaps you have a better chance at getting a decent box

I just wanted to point out that the listing does have this note:
"GIFTING NOTE:This item ships in the manufacturer's original packaging. If intended as a gift, the packaging may reveal the contents. "

Not saying it is right, but it shouldn't be a surprise...
