  1. I spend a lot of time (probably too much time, honestly) looking for deals. There are seven Walmarts, five Walgreens, two Targets, two Books-A-Millions, and a Toys-R-Us in and around the city I live in; and I visit them frequently. I usually walk out empty handed, though.
  2. I bought a TIE Advanced Prototype (75082) at Books-A-Million today for $10.00.
  3. Those were clearance prices. Walmart's clearance policy is extremely schitzophrenic (it varies wildly from store to store). I just happened to be in the right stores at the right times.
  4. There are some good deals to be found in retail stores; but it requires a lot of luck. My favorite finds so far include: LEGO Large Creative Box (10697) for $5.00 at Walmart; Batman in the Phantom Zone (30522) for $1.29 at Target; Azari and the Magic Bakery (41074) for $7.00 at Walmart; The Elves' Treetop Hideaway (41075) for $12.00 at Books-A-Million; Laval's Royal Fighter (70005) for $5.00 at Walmart; The Fortrex (70317) for $17.00 at Walmart; Death Star Final Duel (75093) for $19.00 at Walmart; and Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas (76026) for $17.00 at Walmart.
  5. My CMF Mickey Mouse is currently wearing the Wizard's clothes; so my vote goes to him.
  6. One of the unfortunate side effects of becoming an adult is a tendancy to categorize things. Children typically don't do that. We (as adults) look at a theme like Nexo Knights and immediately try to fit it into a predefined category. We say, "Is this a Castle theme or a Space theme?" Children (my children, at least) aren't concerned with categories. They look at Nexo Knights and say, "Robot knights! Cool!" I would argue that Lego's transition from traditional themes (those that fit easily into a defined category) to braoder, more difficult to define themes is simply the natural evolution of the brand.
  7. It looks like it would be really easy to mod the stand so that it has a couple extra studs for the figure to attach to....
  8. I bought Lego Large Creative Box (10697) at Walmart yesterday for $5.
  9. I found the Batman in the Phantom Zone polybag (30522) for $1.19 at Target today. I bought six.
  10. Excellent video, Brick Ministry. Thanks for posting it.
  11. Thanks for the video, Brick Ministry. Excellent work. This is definitely my favorite set of the wave.
  12. It looks surprisingly good without the stickers. I believe you just convinced me to buy it.
  13. Battle packs used to be the only Lego sets I was willing to pay full price for. That may change soon....
  14. I just bought The Elves' Treetop Hideaway (41075) at Books-A-Million for $12.
