Title: LEGO
Post by: John C on November 7, 2005, 10:44 AM
I didn't see a thread about Legos so I apologize if I missed it.  I just had to comment on the new Viking sets I saw in a commercial over the weekend.  They look pretty good and I am happy that Lego has finally used this theme.  I think they fit in well with the Knights Kingdom sets.  I will pick up each set eventually.  They are a Toys R Us exclusive at the moment.  Here is a link

I used to buy Legos when I was younger, but due to the price and the other toy lines out there, I have  not bought any non-Star Wars ones in a while. I still love to bust out my old ones from time to time and make something though  ;D

I used to go crazy building fortresses, space shuttles, and starfighters.

I loved legos.

I'm going to bump this up to ask if anyone has been buying the Viking sets?  I hadn't heard anything about them till I stumbled across a huge display in a TRU in Dickson City, PA back in November. 

They just showed up in the newest Shop@Home catalog and I was looking them over and they seem to be nice sets.  Anyone build any?

Also I saw some new $4 sets at Target last night, the Lego X-Pod.  They're pretty cool little sets and affordable.

I have the three cheapest sets.  They are really well done.  Lego makes some good sets when they want to.  The Longboat and the fortress will also be mine eventually.

I haven't bought much from Lego recently, but the Metal Ages Dragons by Mega Bloks look pretty neat.  I think there are large sized dragons, about 12" tall or so, called Stendahl and Thoron.  They're pretty "realistic" looking for youngsters' building block sets.

*Gets up on soapbox* I'm a LegoManiac. Star Wars figs are my main hobby, but non-SW Lego is second.

I'm going to bump this up to ask if anyone has been buying the Viking sets?

I have the $10 boat set and the $5 Viking Knight vs. Fenris Wolf set. Pretty cool line. I'm also pretty big into Knight's Kingdom 2 and the older castle sets.

Now I can't wait until the new Batman LEGO sets come out.  I just saw the line showcased in the newest Toyfare magazine.  The Batmobile and the villains look awesome.  I don't like the look of the Batman mask though at least from the picture.

Which sets are you looking into?  I still have all mine from when I was a kid, but it was more late 80's / early 90's.  The first monorail is the oldest space set I still have.  Then it's lots of second generation Blacktron and stuff like that.

Space, Castle, and Pirates... still have all of them up in the closet.

I've thought of selling a couple original castle sets (Yellow castle, jousting tournament, soldiers set, etc.) if I could find someone willing to pay whatever its valued at, but Ebay seems very tough to follow with Legos and value.  I've got a ton and honestly should just start unloading what I can.  I'm probably sitting on some kind of goldmine with all this crap.

If you know which kits you have, let me know.  I could be interested in a few of the old castle, space, or pirate sets that I always wanted but never owned.
Title: Re: Legos
Post by: Jesse James on July 18, 2008, 11:48 PM
The only kits I have that aren't in a giant bin of grey or whatnot, are the yellow castle kits.  I forget how I even got these but I feel like they're some kind of investment that I'm not doing anything with.  It's like owning a stock that never pays, but selling it could do me well.

I owned every one of the original grey castle sets for many years except the guarded inn (lego shop exclusive I think?), but never kept instructions/boxes and all that. 

Looooooooved them Lego knight sets.  I was buying those up to the point they were making the round grey helmets that looked like Braveheart knight helmets, just because they were so cool and accurate.  The viking stuff looks outstanding too.  If I were a rich guy, Legos would be on the menu.

Rob, I'm not even sure which ones that I'm looking for.  I want to dig through that site and see what I come up with and go from there.  It'll be a few weeks though as Sunday I'm headed to New Orleans for another week of relief work.  When I dig up what I'm looking for, I'll hit you up.

Sea-life Aquarium opens August 11th at Legoland California.

Sealife Aquarium (http://www.legoland.com/sealife/)


More than a standard aquarium, SEA LIFE™ Aquarium provides an educational and interactive dynamic unlike any other.  Featuring play zones, fun facts and quiz trails, SEA LIFE is designed to be a child’s guide to the life of the sea.  The SEA LIFE voyage begins high in the fresh waters of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, continuing on to the San Francisco Harbor and finally journeying to the depths of the Pacific Ocean via the California shoreline. Along the way, families discover the lost ancient city of Atlantis and a sunken shipwreck. 


In line with the SEA LIFE philosophy, SEA LIFE Aquarium at the LEGOLAND California Resort focuses on the creatures commonly found in local waters. All of the freshwater fish living in the aquarium can be found in California lakes and streams, and our cold water marine animals, which are all native to the California coastline.


At the entrance, a huge LEGO® fish spanning more than 10 feet will greet visitors. Made of thousands of LEGO bricks, this new model joins a nearly 11 foot-long submarine which will be installed in the ocean display. These are just two of more than 70 new LEGO models you’ll find at SEA LIFE Aquarium, totaling tens of thousands of LEGO bricks. 


SEA LIFE also features a seahorse kingdom where children can get their first look at these mythical creatures, a bay of rays where they can experience marine life up-close and a shoaling ring where they will be surrounded 360 degrees by schools of shimmering fish. As guests stroll through an acrylic tunnel, they will be immersed in the ocean without getting wet, surrounded by more than 20 species of sharks, fish and invertebrates. An interactive discovery zone, including the Southern California Tide Pool, also offers young visitors the opportunity to interact with SEA LIFE experts, get hands-on with interesting creatures of the ocean in a touch pool and participate in building their own coral reef out of LEGO brick. Opening right next door -
August 11, 2008!

You probably are sitting on a gold mine. The yellow castle is worth quite a bit, so are the vintage mini-figs.



As a kid I enjoyed the castle sets of the late 80's and into the early 90's. Last winter I got into my old lego's after playing with them with my son and rebuilt these sets.

Yep, blind bagged. I want to get all of these, but there are about 7 of these that I really really want.

Someone over on the otheR Site in their lego section posted scans of the bar codes with a description of the character.  I haven't been tried it out to see if they match, but it might be worthwhile if you only want the Caveman or the clown or something.

Post by: Greedo The Green Menace on May 28, 2010, 07:26 PM
I grabbed a few of these today cuz they looked like fun, got the clown and the diver and I think I might be hooked. I like the surprise involved, thought I'm really hoping to find a zombie. How cool would it be to have a Lego City zombie apocalypse?

I do agree, Star Wars ones would be very nifty, but I don't think they can do it, I think I read somewhere that there were licensing rights with selling Star Wars minifigs individually or somthing.
Title: Re: Legos
Post by: efranks on May 28, 2010, 10:39 PM
Hasbro has the exclusive rights in the US to action figures and single minifigs constitute an action figure.  If you guys remember, Lego sold some 3-packs of minifigs with stands back in 1999 or 2000, and got in trouble for it.  They never did that again, instead releasing the battle packs like we still have today.

Ran into the series 2 minifigures today at TRU.  I picked up the Mexican (x2 for my Wild West sets), witch, vampire and pharaoh.  Now I have to watch Bricklink for some of the series 1 guys that I never saw at retail.  Will probably buy the Robot, cowboys, indians and some spacemen.

the elf from 3 is cool i also like the series 5 viking dwarf guy, I don't like the new ninja line, I ask myself how did they mess this up why does this feel so wrong.
maybe if the ninjas had totally sweet guitars and killed people like evil assassins i would like it, because what ninjas do.

I also miss Pirates...

I'd have rather seen an Avatar (the Last Airbender) line, than plain ninjas.

I think that would have done better.

Ah well, I barely collect LEGO anymore. SW just got too expensive for me. While the sets look great, I can't justify the cost.

Has anyone seen the Series 5 minifigures show up at retail yet in the US? 

I've been going on an Alien Conquest binge lately, what with my disgust with Hasbro's distribution and all.  The Alien Striker (5 bucks for an Alien Defense Unit Human, Alien, and tiny alien skimmer) set is particularly addictive, and I've been buying multiples of them when I go into TRU, and ordering extra minifigure heads from Lego's website to do headswaps.  Very cool stuff, and the UFO noise that the Alien Mothership makes never fails to bring a grin to my face. :)

I got what I wanted of the latest group the other day...  I'd kind of like some of the older ones since I got into these late, but I'm worried on price.  I wanted the Orc, the Viking, etc.  :( 

I don't recall the Viking in that series he's pictured in above though.  At least I don't remember him being in that group with the female figure skater and stuff.

Anyway, out of Series 5, I got the Dwarf (x3, the kids each wanted one too, haha), the monkey wrangler for my gf, the godzilla guy, and the gladiator.  Got a couple extra gladiators too, I'd trade for older series figures I want.

Just a tip - if you have a Legoland near you, go there and ask for the specific characters you want.  Last time I was at the Mpls store, there was an employee who could tell the figure inside just by feeling the package AND she had pulled out some of the rarer ones for people trying to get specific figures. 
Title: Re: Legos
Post by: Jesse James on September 8, 2011, 10:50 PM
That's how I do it, actually.  It's pretty easy, really, to just look at the assortment on top of the box and pick the most obvious thing you're feeling around for...  In the case of the dwarf, it's his axe blades, or his helmet as pretty unique.  Also his short legs.

Every figure has a couple things you can sort of pick up on...  Snowboarders or surfers with the big board, fisherman's fishing pole, the "tail/spine" of the Godzilla guy is really easy to pick up on.  The monkey in the last series had a banana, and the monkey wrangler in this one has one too, and it's pretty easy to tell what it is through the packaging.  I find elves from the last series by the bow and arrow. 

I picked out dwarves and elves for the kids and myself, the Gladiator by his helmet (I have two opened if anyone wants the Gladiator)...  It's become sort of fun to pick them out for me, but it can be time-consuming so I try to do it all in one swoop when a new set is found, so i can just get them and be done looking, haha.
Title: Re: Legos
Post by: Diddly on September 9, 2011, 03:19 AM
Didn't even think about feeling around the packaging. Darn my honesty! :P

Thanks for the tips, I'll check them out next time.

Jman, no Legolands near me but I do have a newly opened Lego store in a mall on the other side of town. I could also try there I guess.
Title: Re: Legos
Post by: Jesse James on September 9, 2011, 03:37 AM
It was the first thing I thought of when I first bought a mini figure...  I feel it's fair game, but maybe I'm just devious.  If they don't want people doing that they need to box them then I guess. :)  Then people will be guessing weight or something, haha.

The only problem with it is like standing around squeezing the Charmin...  If Mr. Wimple sees you, he'll bitch.
Title: Re: Legos
Post by: efranks on September 9, 2011, 03:58 PM
I've used the feel method on the this set since they made it harder than looking at the UPC codes.  The dot codes work, sort of, and helped me score two extra Dwarf figures, but after I narrowed down a couple packs that had thick enough accessories.

But, yeah, I was in Walmart sorting through them and after a little while I got the thought that I looked pretty shady feeling them up at the end of the Lego aisle.  Target just stocked them but I resisted the urge to spend too much time on them...their toy aisle is always more busy anyway.

Title: Re: Legos
Post by: DoctorPadawan on September 10, 2011, 03:31 PM
The whole "dot code" thing on the packaging is really difficult on my eyes, so I've gone back to the Mr. Whipple-ire-inducing method of squeezing the packaging (thanks for reminding me of that commercial, Jesse).  So far, I've been able to get all but one of the minifigures using the feel-around method.

The easiest ones for me to locate in this latest series are Cleopatra (due to the fact that her lower body is an angular brick as opposed to legs) and the Palace Guard (due to the big, textured hat).

Oh, and in case nobody's noticed it yet, the Boxer has a reversible head (the first for the minifigure series, I believe) with a "happy" side and an "I just got the brick kicked out of me" side with a bruised eye. :)

Picked up a Royal Guard and a Gladiator today at Target.  They were pretty easy to pick out once I had them in my had.  Would like to score another RG and if I could happen into them, a couple more Dwarves. 

I have a Zoo Keeper that I'm not really interested in and would be willing to trade for another Royal Guard or possibly something from an earlier series if anyone is interested.

Post by: darth punkinhed on September 15, 2011, 11:54 AM
This is funny, I too stand in the aisle and use the whipple method to figure out what's what. I usually start to draw a crowd and after I walk away from the display they usually gather around it and start picking them up too. Once I had a guy come over, ask me what I was doing and ask if I could find him a spartan. He was shocked with how fast I found him one. I blame that on luck and the fact it was a new and pretty full display. I haven't started on the new series of these yet, I still need some from series 1.
Title: Re: Legos

Title: Re: Legos
Post by: shmashwitdaclub on September 22, 2011, 11:21 AM
my son has started buying these with his allowance money from his chores.  He has me doing the squeeze method for him.  The first round we 1 Lizard and 2 Eskimos (1 was a surprise - thought I had something else - dont know how the fishing pole slipped past me).  Last night we went back for some more at TRU to take advantage of the buy 2 get 1 special plus a one day only $5 off coupon I had.  We went aiming to get one for my son and one for my daughter (4 year old) who now likes them too.  I was able to find for her the pink boombox chick and for my son the snow boarder. 

We also got more for Christmas stocking stuffers, 1 gladiator, 1 Dwarf, 1 Zoo Keeper with monkey, and 1 extra snowboarder (again this one somehow slipped by me and I didn't realize til we got home).  I didn't open the extra and I will probably exchange it at a later date for a different one.

I don't have access to TRU very often but you may be able to find some there in an out of the way store, maybe.  The other place that seems to get these some times are stores like Michaels and AC Moore.  They may get shopped less often by collectors so you could try there, or a Ben Franklin or Hobby Lobby maybe...similar stores.

Post by: Paul on September 26, 2011, 07:36 AM
Ok guys we have a problem.   

My son just discovered "Legos".  He is 3. We skipped duplo and went straight to mini-figs. 

This means I am now 4 waves behind and playing catch up. 

I am willing to buy any extras anyone has.  I am also going to buy a couple cases of earlier waves and we can do a giveaway after I get a complete set. ( I know this is not the classified section, but I asked the site owner for permission and after paying a fee, got a variance this time)

I was at the Toys R Us getting Wave 4 and 5 using the Braile method when the Guest relations person stops by and asks bow successful I am with that method. I told her I was kinda new to it, but could tell certain figures pretty good.  She said to stay where I was was and returned with a guide to determine which figures are in the package by reading the dots along the bottom fused edge.   I have not had a chance to google it, but once I find it I will post it here.   

Do Legos ever go on clearance?  Are they ever at Big Lots/Ross type stores?  At this point my son doesn't want particular sets, I just thought I'd snag some cheap ones.
Title: Re: Legos
Post by: iFett on September 26, 2011, 11:02 AM
I don't do the blind bag mini-figs, but yes I have seen various Atlantis/SW/other misc LEGO building sets at TJmaxx, Marshalls, and Tuesday Morning.  No Ross around here, but I'd imagine they get them in as well from time to time.

Oh and Target does a pretty good job 2-3 times a year at clearancing older various LEGO sets out.
Title: Re: Legos
Post by: Jesse James on September 26, 2011, 11:39 PM
The "Freeco Speeder" is on the clearance aisle at my WM right now paul...  I see clearances on Legos a lot.

Lego also ALWAYS runs sales.  Always.  B1G1 50% off happens fairly often, 25% off fairly often, etc., etc.

As far as these older figures go, good luck man.  I really want some of them too. :(

I'm actually all in on these upcoming somewhat similar Star Wars sets with a miniship & figure in a planet package.  I'm alla bout that stuff.

Also now really want the mini Droid Fighter that's apparantly showing up at TRU courtesy of a post from ImperialHolocron.com I read on Twitter.

I got the AAT at Target yesterday, and I love mini vehicles, mini figures, and figure that's all I can afford, haha.

I have some old Lego SW sets I should sell off...  All complete.  Loved them, but I should probabyl move on from the big sets now all together, and just weed it down to mini figs and the mini ships, and mostly just SW stuff and the odd blind pack fig.

These are toy crack...  Cheap (relatively, these days), and addictive...  I'm pretty much hooked just so long as I keep avoiding buying Hasbro stuff I'm wishy washy on, or just want one figure from a set of 3 or something.

Just to build on Jesse's comment, TRU tends to run a lot of buy one get one 50% off and the lego minifigs are included in those sales.  You may also want to join the lego rewards club if you have a legoland nearby.
Title: Re: Legos
Post by: efranks on September 27, 2011, 01:52 AM
One thing to note about TRU is that they are consistently $10 or more above WM and Target or even a Lego store (and online). So the B1G1 50% off is still a good deal, but look close at the pricing when it's only 10-25% off, you might actually do better on a 10% off sale at Target.

The Lego VIP Program is pretty good too.  I joined back in May when Lego Shop@Home was having their sale and ordered the Republic Dropship (#10195).  I'm now only 1 point away from a $10 discount and got a catalog today for their October sale where they're doing double points on all orders.  So, another order, stack up some more discounts and wait for a free shipping offer or some other deal and really get a break on a purchase.

I don't collect a lot of Lego now, but there are a few sets now and again that I'll buy (not just Star Wars) and this works out pretty well if you don't mind ordering online.  Plus the pricing is more in line with WM and Target on most stuff.

Yeah also join the Lego Fan Club, Paul.  It's free.  I'm in it for ***** and giggles, and get free mags now and then, and your son will like that just to look at the goofy pictures/drawings and stuff till he can read it on his own and stuff.

I get it just to read the Star Wars comic they run in it, despite its absurdly goofy and kid-oriented nature.  It's fun and the little mini figures having expressions are cute.

If you get some of the older blind packed figures by the case, let me know!  I'm after a couple too since I got into these late myself.
Title: Re: Legos
Post by: Paul on September 27, 2011, 01:27 PM
I joined the Club at Disney World last month.  They just opened a LegoLand or whatever it is called, here in town.

I ordered a case of Wave 1, working on Series 2 and 3 with a guy, so if that Happens, there should be plenty more giveaways...not quite to the scale of the SDCC Death Star, but cheaper to mail!

I saw that they did "Old West" Legos... that is where the boy is going to start.

And somebody did some nice GI Joe:Real American Hero customs...
Title: Re: Legos
Post by: Jesse James on September 28, 2011, 01:15 AM
I didn't think getting the old sets would be easy.

Guy sets up at the local toy show selling Lego minis for a **** ton.  :-\  Does a good business too.

I've wanted a Bossk for so long, and price is the only thing keeping me from getting it...  Lego mini figs just go for a ton, and the SW ones especially since you can't get them otherwise, and Hasbro likes to pack obscure ones with bigger sets.

Speaking of...

Does anyone have a Fleet Trooper they don't want?  I wanked it on that one, but really want the RFT they did.  It's spiffy.
Title: Re: Legos
Post by: Diddly on September 28, 2011, 01:58 AM
Yeah, older Lego sets are like Disney DVDs, once they go out of production get ready to pay if you want them.

Paul, everyone else has already mentioned the TRU/Target sales, but I'd also sign up on the Lego website mailing list. They usually have decent deals, and if it isn't BOGO it's usually free shipping on orders over like $50 or $75, and at Lego prices, it isn't hard to get that much.

Jesse, check out bricklink.com (http://www.bricklink.com), they usually sell some minifigs (and other parts), sometimes for decent prices, sometimes for not.

Series 7 apparently.  Love the blue space man, black knight, tarzan, bagpiper, aztek and neptune.

Too bad the bunny's not pink for Scott's alter ego.

I've been on a Lego kick recently.  My oldest is obsessed with them (after Christmas he'll have a complete Atlantis, Alien Attack and Spongebob collection and I know he'll want the superhero sets) and it's making me dig out some of my older SW sets and rebuild them (they were put away because I have no room to display them). 

I joined the VIP club at Lego and since October is double points month, had family buy a bunch of stuff for Christmas.  I just ordered The Black Pearl and with those points, should be able to get close to $50 off the Imperial Flagship.  It'll go nicely battling it out with the Pearl and QAR.  Hopefully the Flying Dutchman gets released.

Great contest, Jesse and Paul.  I mentioned this in the Lego SW forum, but I've really gotten back into Lego stuff lately, and seeing this contest made me literally jump up in my seat with giddiness. :)

Oh, and just to give you guys a heads-up on the Lego VIP stuff: if you order online from shop.lego.com, make sure you register for the VIP program via the site.  You get 1 point for every dollar (doesn't include shipping costs or taxes) you spend, and with every 100 points, you get 5 dollars in credit to use either online or at Lego b&m stores.  Last month there was a promotion where you got double-points, and the points accumulate fast, and don't expire for quite a while (I want to say it's two years or so).  Plus they send you a cool metallic red and white membership card, which is awesome.  ;D

Stopped by the mall on an errand today and went by the LEGO Store, where they had a case of the new Series 6 of minifigs (along with the new 2012 sets from pretty much every line). Snagged 3 random bags, but didn't do any feeling around due to 1) not much details about the characters yet and 2) it's kind of a small store so employees are always eyeing you down.

Ended up with the Roman Swordsman type guy, the Butcher and the Old West Bandit. I'm going to wait until these hit local retailers to snag more, as I only got one of the six or seven I want. :P

Also I might have to snag some of those LOTR sets for the figures... I really need to rewatch the films, as when I first saw them I was young and rather indifferent about them.

I picked up 11 over the weekend and part by plan, part by accident, I ended up with some dupes.  I snagged a Roman, Statue of Liberty, Space Girl, Leprechaun and 2x Minotaur.  Ended up with a second Space Girl and Leprechaun and a Skater Girl by accident.  Also snagged 2 extra Minotaur figs, one by accident and one on purpose because I needed a 6th figure to take advantage of the 2 for $5 at TRU.

Anyone looking to do trades here?  Space Girl, Leprechaun, Skater Girl and 2 Minotaur figs are for trade.  I'm looking for the Highland Battler, Genie, Classic Alien and wouldn't mind the Bandit or a Series 5 Detective.  Or I'll always take more S5 Dwarves or another S6 Roman Soldier.

I've declared myself master of figuring out what's in these blind packs.  I had the kids out recently, and I tore through almost the entire display quickly and found all the figures we wanted and didn't get a single one wrong. 

I didn't buy EVERYTHING I wanted for myself yet.  Still probably gonna nab a Leprechaun at some point, maybe the robot, but got all the rest I wanted.  If I'm bored I may nab more Highlanders too at some point.  Greatest figure in the wave to me.

If anyone's really having a difficult time finding a particular one they want, I can probably help out though it may not be worth it with the shipping.

I randomly picked out 3 bags of Series 8 a couple weeks ago and pulled two freakin' Fairies!  Those cases must have been lousy with her.  I didn't care for S8 that much.  I pulled the Diver and Alien and then randomly picked the Conquistador.  I wanted the Robot and Pirate Captain but never found them...and that was about it.  Wasn't interested in any of the others.  My Target just put out a small display of Series 7 and I pulled an Aztec and another Galaxy Patrol figure, though.

I'm looking forward to Series 9.  Definitely in for the Alien Avenger, Battle Mech and Forrest Maiden and would also pick up the Cyclops, Mermaid, Heroic Knight and maybe Roman Emperor.

I had the original western sets...  I could get into some of those minifigs now.  Their cowboys/outlaws in the blind packs were nice.

I wish they'd do a straight western theme rather than the Lone Ranger movie theme, though.

I was hoping for more from the Galaxy Squad also.  Something more classic Space than what we're getting.  I don't care for some of the sets in that series so far.

I agree, I loved that old western series they did.  I'd love to see it even delve a little into civil war ala how Playmobil did things.  I'd probably get sucked into that, actually.

Military stuff seems off Lego's table though unless it's fantasy. :(

I wanted the Robot and Pirate Captain but never found them...and that was about it.  Wasn't interested in any of the others.  My Target just put out a small display of Series 7 and I pulled an Aztec and another Galaxy Patrol figure, though.

I have a spare Pirate Captain, would you be interested in trading for the Galaxy Patrol?

I guess I read over this earlier.  Thanks for the offer but I'm hanging on to the GP figures to go with my classic Space sets.

Noticed last night that Target sold through all the Series 7 minifigs they put out, they went fast.  But they put some S8 in the bin, added some of the bagged Batmobile sets from the holiday section and filled it back up.

I also saw that Target has bagged TIE Fighter sets in the checkout aisles.  I think it's still set 8028 which has been out a few times.  It is in the Movie Heroes style Maul packaging, which is how WM sold it back around Easter time.

Adam over at Galactic Hunter posted to Twitter a few days ago that he spotted some bagged sets at WM.  He mentioned an MTT and something else.  I figured they probably had another shelf bin with sets like the did in March when they had the TIE, Republic Attack cruiser, SD and STAP.  I haven't seen them locally, anyone else finding them?

My Walmart's stock of Star Wars Lego got decimated sometime in the last 2 or 3 days.  Nearly all of the sets across all price ranges were cleaned out.  Just a handful of the most expenisve sets, like Jabba's palace and the Malevolence, and the cheaper sets that they had a lot of stock of, like the Planet sets, left.  A few here and there of the other sizes but Battle Packs, the red TOR fighter, Jedi Starfighters...gone.

City got pretty wiped out at Target this week too, with the BOGOHO sale.  Still a lot left but if history is any indication, two weeks from today they should have bare shelves as well.  Target almost completely sells out of Lego this time of year, every year.

Heard there were some good finds at Walmart and Target on Lego over the last couple of days.  Of course, we were snowed in yesterday so I didn't get out, and Target had already been picked clean, but I stopped at Walmart on the way to work this morning.

I scanned the Jabba's Palace and Millennium Falcon sets, which have been found on markdown, but they were scanning at normal price.  I also checked the Avenger Quinjet set and it wasn't marked down either.

But, I found the Triceratops Trapper and Space Center sets for 50% off and bought them. 

The price scanner at my WM is not that close so I got tired of making trips, but I think I'm going back over after work because some stores have had the Malevolence and Republic Frigate marked down also and I want to check them.  Also sounds as if some LOTR and quite a few of the City sets are marked down so I'm going to check them also.

All of the SW sets that have seen markdowns were sold out.

Series 8 blind bags were being clearanced for $1 each at a local Walmart so I went a little crazy snagging 25 randomly. Ended up with:

4x Cheerleader
4x Cowgirl
3x Batboy
3x Santa
3x Conquistador
2x Pirate
1x British Suit Guy
1x Fairy
1x DJ
1x Scuba Diver
1x Evil Robot
1x German Pretzel Guy

Glad to finally get a Santa but no Alien or Hamlet is kind of a bummer. (I already have one of each but wouldn't mind more). If anyone needs some Cheerleaders, Conquistadors, Batboys or Cowgirls, hit me up!

I didn't want to start a new thread for this, but does anyone happen to still have the Harry Potter LEGO sets available in their area stores?  Ours are all dried up, and we always wanted to pick up our daughter the "Hagrid's Hut" set that comes with Hagrid, Harry, Ron, and Hermoine.  I see it is still available on Amazon (for a higher price), but I thought I'd just mention it here in case anyone might have seen it in their area.  No biggie either way, and sorry to clutter up the "normal" LEGO thread with HP stuff :).

I don't think I've seen Hagrid's Hut in a while.  It was a really popular set and sold out at most stores around here pretty quickly and wasn't stocked again.  Stores like Target carried the Castle, Bust and two small battle pack sets longer.  WM had it longer but not much.

I'm trying to recall if I saw any Potter sets last weekend when I was out but I think the only set I saw was a Quidditch set somewhere...maybe KMart.

If you have any out of the way Walmart or KMart stores it may be worth a drive to check them out.

Thanks guys, that was kind of what I was thinking.  I saw one at our local TRU sometime shortly after Thanksgiving, but passed on it since we had gotten plenty of other presents for our daughter for Christmas by that point anyways.  I checked again in mid-Dec and it was of course gone from all our local stores, and then I sort of forgot about it until now.  Not a big deal, just thought I would ask around.  Thanks for the help!

Brian, check your PMs, LMK if you're still looking for that Hagrid's Hut set.  Found one at B&N this weekend.

Also picked up a couple more bagged minifigs from Series 7, and finally pulled Little Red, which I'd been looking for.  Also picked up a Dino set to burn off some Rewards Points I had.

Found the Series 1 Star Wars Planet sets for $2.98 at Target and picked up a couple for my buddy and also grabbed a couple Police bagged sets from the checkout lane.

Add to that a 4425 Car and Caravan set that I found at my Target last week.  Think it was $9-something on clearance.

Oh joy, oh joy!

Tweeted a little bit ago that I found the  Series 9 Lego Mini-figures at my local K-Mart tonight. $2.99...  I picked 4 fairly random. 

Oh, you want to follow me on twitter!?  Well you can by following me @Jesse_James77 or https://twitter.com/Jesse_James77 where I appreciate getting more followers if I can because I'm a whore like that.

I got:

-Movie Starlet (I thought it was elf woman warrior, and I think having at least 3 in this series with the blocky dress bottom is going to be tough)

-Chicken Suit Guy

-Plumber (the plunger is actually rubber and creates suction.  hah  Couldn't be more real if he had ass crack)

-Alien warrior guy

Not any I was dying to get like Cyclops, Elf Woman, cop, knight, or judge, but still good figures.  I will have to try again when I have time to feel up the packaging.  :-X  The trophy the starlet has is awesome by the way.  Just too cute.
Title: Re: LEGO
Post by: Diddly on February 6, 2013, 04:37 AM
I snagged 5 Series 9 blind bags when I hit the LEGO Store last week... I just randomly grabbed some since I was carrying a lot (had an expiring coupon I wanted to use on some of the Star Wars and Hero sets) and the guy actually asked if I wanted him to feel them up for me. I said I didn't care since they were the first of the series I was buying and that I always feel weird feeling bags in the stores. He said I was the only one, as they get a high number of "feelers" every day. :P

Anyway, ended up with x2 Waiters, x2 Cyclops and a Knight... all cool figures. I was pumped for the Cyclope because I wanted a few of them, and I want even more now since they have dual printed heads. One side is a large open eye that takes up the entire "helmet" while the other is an angry looking eye. Good stuff, and they look like they match PERFECTLY with the new Gammorreans so I'm going to populate them inside the Jabba's Palace set once I get around to building it.

I wouldn't mind a few more Knights either to go up against the five or so evil Black Knights I've wound up with during clearances. And of course I gotta get the Chicken Suit guy to go with the other costumed weirdos.

I've also got another Series 9 coming in the mail, as I ordered that Minecraft set from LEGO's site last week, and added the fig to get a free City set... honestly not really sure why I got the Minecraft set since I've never played the game. Probably hit with the "EXCLUSIVE GOTTA GRAB IT" mentality :-\

Post by: Jesse James on February 6, 2013, 08:07 PM
I went back to K-Mart for more tonight, got the she-elf, knock-off Iron Man guy, and Cyclops.  Still need several but got some I really wanted tonight by doing some sack fondling in the toy aisle.

Cyclops is easy to find because his horn will poke through the bag actually.

Jekyl/Hyde might be a bit of a bear.

She-elf is easy to find once you find a block for her dress you just feel for the shield or bow.

There are 3 women with the block bottom so beware that.

Cheap 3.75" Hobbit figs and new Lego dudes = fun.

LEGO pre-Toy Fair press releases are starting to hit.

The Lone Ranger:
Quote
NEW YORK, American International Toy Fair (February 7, 2013) – The LEGO Group today announced an upcoming collection of LEGO® construction toys inspired by the Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films' feature film The Lone Ranger, which debuts in theaters July 3, 2013.  Scheduled to launch this April, six new building sets will bring the action and stories of the film to life in LEGO form, and will include iconic characters such as John Reid (aka The Lone Ranger), Tonto and the horse, Silver.

"We are thrilled to once again collaborate with Disney Consumer Products to create construction toys based on a live action film," said Jill Wilfert, vice president licensing & entertainment at The LEGO Group.  "We have not offered a LEGO western theme in over 10 years, and The Lone Ranger provided the quintessential inspiration with familiar characters, stories and scenes, allowing us to develop authentic and exciting models for children and adult collectors alike."

The Lone Ranger, from producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, is a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.

The Lone Ranger also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson and Helena Bonham Carter.

A Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films presentation, The Lone Ranger is directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski, with screen story by Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio and Justin Haythe and screenplay by Justin Haythe and Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio.

The Lone Ranger line of LEGO products will be available in toy stores nationwide and will range in price from $12.99 to $99.99 (USD) in April 2013.

Stopped in KMart this afternoon and found some Series 9 on an end cap display.  It had already been picked over a little bit by the looks of it but I spent a couple minutes going through them.  Pulled two Alien Avenger figures and a Battle Mech.  So, that was a good start.  Only need about 10 more of the alien and a couple more of the Mechs, plus the other figures that I want out of this series.

I probably would have gone through them a little more but it just feels wierd, as an adult, standing in the toy aisle of KMart feeling up bagged figures.

Since I'm a man of little to no shame, as Eric is well aware, I decided to bag fondle in the toy aisle and get the Roman Senator/Cesar and Jekyl/Hyde guy.

Best way to find either is for Hyde I found the glass first...  the hat kept getting hung up on the body parts.  For the Roman, the flat script is all you have to go off of really.  The hair's fairly non-descript and the rest is just his body, so feel for that flat plate script he has.

Thanks Jesse, but I'll hold off on that offer, for now at least. The new series has only hit one local store so far, so I'm waiting for them to get a little more widespread so I can feel them up (giggety).

I lucked out and saw a fresh case at TRU the other day during their BOGO and ended up with the Judge, 2 Alien Mechs, the Mermaid, Roller Derby Girl, and a third Cyclops. Most by feel, some by random grab. Just gotta wait for Wal-Mart to pick these up since Targets here haven't carried any Minifigs since Series 5.

I'm gonna maybe go for the Judge but at the moment I'm pretty content on what I have I think with this series.  Need some old ones and dread the thought of what they may cost me. :(
