Earlier this month, Wal-Mart had what I would consider to be the best LEGO sale of the year. They had major discounts on LEGO Exclusive sets, and then Amazon ended up price matching many of them. The sale went on for days, and Wal-Mart kept adjusting prices.
Sets went in and out of stock VERY quickly. Near the end of the sale, oddly, Wal-Mart dropped prices even lower! But by that time, sets were out of stock, and I don’t think any actually sold at the ridiculously low prices.
For the sets we are talking about here, many of them rarely see significant discounts. I was so excited, I took screenshots!
This is the haul I ended up with, two more Fire Brigades and R2D2:
I don’t think we will see another sale this good for the rest of the year. Sure, around Black Friday, there will be some good deals on some sets, but usually it is not Exclusive sets like these.
