Walked into WalMart this afternoon to find the Rathtar Escape set priced at $70 (MSRP is $80) - not sure how/why, but I didn't question it and picked it up, so scratch that one off the list. I think that leaves me with the Republic Fighter Tank, Jedi Starfighter w/Hyperspace Ring, the two Freemaker Adventure sets and the two constraction sets.

I picked up Captain Rex's AT-TE at my local Walmart on clearance for $30.

There is nothing to read all the way down here.  If I had something else to say, I'd a said it in my post.  You may proceed to the next post.

Heh, just saw this pic on Reddit too. Guessing since the pieces are all fairly common it wasn't an expensive build?

Funny, I almost didn't post on both because I don't really want Reddit figuring out anything about me outside of Reddit. :)

I spent a little under $100 probably?  It was about 7 orders, the most expensive of which was for the Luke and Han.  I probably could have saved money piecing them together or waiting until the hype died down, but here I am.

Someone also asked on Reddit if I was going to do the Space Slug set too, which I'd forgotten about.  So that's up next.

Several Rogue One sets now listed as "Retiring Soon" on LEGO Shop... specifically the Microfighters and the Imperial/Rebel Battle Packs. I went ahead and snagged the Battle Packs at Walmart since I haven't gotten them yet.

Stopped by the local LEGO Store today and bought the Bounty Hunter battle pack with 4-LOM, IG-88, Dengar and "Boosk" to take advantage of the Double VIP deal going on for July 4th. Swung by the TRU across the highway and was pleased to see the exclusive A-Wing for 20% off, marking it down to about $34, so I grabbed it.

Funny part is I had hoped to grab the A-Wing at the LEGO Store since there's no TRU tax, but they didn't have any of the store exclusives (A-Wing, Skiff and Landspeeder) for sale.

The guys at the lego store by me said they wouldn't be getting the exclusives at all.

My daughter got me the Y-Wing Microfighter 75162 for Father's Day.  These micro sets have turned into her go-to gift for me, since we build them together.  And I get as much of a kick out of watching her try to build these as she does in giving me a Star Wars gift!

Grabbed the U-Wing at Walmart for $54, finishing off 2016 sets for me. Pretty much every set was on clearance and the shelves were pretty bare. Of note, the Quadjumper was $35 and the Rathtar set was $54 but I couldn't justify spending that much at the moment. Plus they're brand new so I'm hoping to get them cheaper later on down the line. Both Resistance X-Wings were priced at $45 but both were sold out, some of the Build A Figures were under $20, and some other smaller stuff was a few dollars off.

Your mileage may vary but check BrickSeek because WM is starting to clearance sets from every line.

Got the UCS Snowspeeder and Silent Mary today.  Good times.

My main thing next is the Saturn V and then that new Falcon... next year.

Picked up the UCS Snowspeeder and Hoth sets during the last double VIP points days.  Just waiting on the Falcon to be back in stock...
