LEGO 50% Sale at Target

by admin on January 13, 2012

There have been reports of LEGO on sale at Target, so I figured I would check it out. I have always found Target to be a mixed bag in terms of sales. They don’t price consistently across stores in my experience, and their stock level is always pretty low to begin with. This visit was no different with some items that others have reported at 50% off, scanning as full retail at the store I went to. Let’s take a look:

As usual, there sale aisle is a complete disaster. I found three Star Wars calendars, all of which had been opened. A woman later put one in her cart, and I pointed out the problem, and she put it back on the shelf.

This is the set they had the most of, and which I ended up being the most interested in. For $5, you get 3 minifigs, the dark red bike, some cool bricks and elements. They had nine of these.

The Cars 2 stuff was on sale – a pretty good selection.

Others have been reporting TONS of Pharoah’s Quest on sale at 50%. This store had a few of the bigger sets:

Both of these had damage to the box. Nothing huge, but puncture marks and wrangled seals.

Others have reported Portal of Atlantis being 50% off at their stores with loads of stock. This store had two in stock, and they scanned at full price. I would have bought it at 50%.

Oddly, these Army Men polybags rang up at full price as well.

The regular LEGO aisle was pretty sparse. The still had the large Harry Potter Hogwart’s castle set ringing up at full price, as did all their Harry Potter merchandise. The Pirates of the Caribbean stuff scanned at full price too.

I was surprised to see so much Alien Conquest still on the shelves:

Their LEGO offering was pretty minimal. None of the newer sets:

All the red Ninjago sets are gone:

Some of the newer City sets. I’m just now noticing that they had Bank Transfer in stock too.

My first sighting of a proper Super Heroes set on the shelf, the Catwoman set.

All in all, a typically weird Target experience!
