I grabbed a couple of the DJ minifigure polybags at Toys R Us last night. They are free with a $30 Lego Star Wars purchase, but my Toys R Us is so wiped out, I was able to convince them to let me buy to polybags outright.

Grabbed the Ach-To Training set and the Kylo vs Tallie Microfighter at Walmart last night. They already had the Amazon Price Matching Prices on the shelf for the new 2018 sets if anyone wants to save a few bucks

Was searching for old sets on ebay and came across a seller with some TLJ sets at a pretty good discount.  They were also taking offers, so I was able to get the First Order Star Destroyer, Defense of Crait and the First Order Heavy Assault Walker at a 30% discount on each.

Is there a semi-exclusive Star Wars Lego polybag at Target this year for Easter?

Nope, the Easter sets are a Creator Hot Dog Stand (which is really cool) and a Friends bowling alley

The new UCS Y-Wing is up for sale. During this weekend, if you spend $75 or more you get a free BB-8 droid build, plus you ger double VIP points and if you are a black card holder from getting the UCS Falcon last year, you should also be emailed a promo code to get a Lego Y-Wing blueprint poster on any order over $35.

I wound up getting a few random TLJ sets from LEGO Shop for May the 4th to break the $75 threshold for BB-8. The deals were lacking, to put it lightly.

Kind of off topic...

Does anyone have any advice on the effect of temperature on lego pieces?

Iím considering leaving a few organizer boxes in my trunk to work on a custom build during lunch at work But summer is coming and I donít want to warp any parts or cause any other problems. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

LEGO is plastic so I would assume it would be similar to leaving a Hasbro figure in your car. Fine for a few hours, maybe. I personally wouldn't do it.

Yearly Walmart clearances are on! Over the last week I've snagged the TLJ turret walker thing with Hux for $30, Crait Speeder/AT-MT Microfighter set for $13, and the FO Tie Microfighter for $7

I've seen the Landspeeder for $15, FO Star Destroyer for $124, and the AT-MT for $109, and the Construct A Figures for under $20, but the clearance prices differ depending on the store.

I got the most recent Death Star, the new Sandcrawler, and the Imperial Transport last night.

And my buddy at the Lego store is exploring new opportunities, so 50% off Lego is over for me.  It was (incredibly) nice while it lasted!
