Last year, the LEGO Store had a pretty amazing 50% off sale. This year, I enjoyed the countdown to the sale along with members of the BrickSet.com and ToysNBricks.com forums, but alas, the sale was not as good as last year. I had planned to visit 3 different LEGO Stores today, but didn’t even go to one.
But… Target and Wal-Mart made up for it. Okay, let’s dig into the haul:
Target only had a few sets on sale for 20-30% off, but their holiday items were 50% off. Included in them were the Harry Potter Polybags:
They still had a bunch of Kingdoms Target Practice, and I grabbed all they had:
The regular toy aisles were an absolute disaster:
The discounts were really underwhelming:
They had a bunch of Star Wars Advent Calendars, but still $33:
My Target pickup after visiting two stores:
The first Wal-Mart I went to always has a small LEGO section. The Star Wars advent calendar was 50% off, so I picked up two:
Their clearance section was even more of a disaster than Target:
The second Wal-Mart I went to was amazing. They were stocked and organized like it was still September:
While nothing was marked on sale, if you scanned items, you would find that many of them were 50% off. Here is my cart that I quickly filled up:
A closer look at the aisles:
My final selections. I almost bought so much more. In the end, I got some Hoth Battle Packs, Kingdoms sets, a Pharaohs Quest set, City of Atlantis, and a whole bunch of Mace Windu’s Starfighters:
Until next Dec 26th!
