Kings Castle (Kingdoms)! I got it for about 20% off, figured that was good enough as any. It's my first set of the new Kingdoms, and I want to get more.
Unfortunately though I am now dirt poor again since I also just bought another 16 Imperial Soldiers and 4 Officers to go with...

Hey everyone, prison carriage (7949) is on sale at Target for $8. Time to stock up if you haven't before the new wave hits!

Wow what a find! This is something I would only dream about, shuffling behind boxes to find old sets from my childhood. Was this a second hand store? I can't fathom how they were still on the shelf, let alone 6 of them!

Just got my TRU order 2 days ago. Package video Village Mill Raid out of stock for online delivery unfortunately and there was no way I was going to pay 10 dollars shipping to TRU so I ordered Escape from Dragon's Prison, Blacksmith Attack, King's Carriage Ambush, 6 Ninja Ambush, Skeleton Chopper (TRU promo set free with 40USD Ninjago Purchase). I also got some free Orchestra childrens dvd.

I've yet tos ee Blacksmith Attack at my local LEGO store, but rest assured I'm going to pick at least 8 of those ones up just as I did with Prison Carriage Rescue.  :laugh:

Me too... not a bad little set, although as it has been said before it's not much of a prison-- more like a facade.  I could see this acting more like a gatehouse or something to the Dragon's Stronghold.

Obviously the mounted knight is the highlight of the set.  I hooked him up with a morning star and he's really looking like the champion of my Dragon faction now.

EVERYTHING IS OVERPRICED I MEAN AWESOME!!!

I put him on a horse, gave him a different face, a cape, a lance, a halberd and a pike with some flags. I also gave him the Kingdom's queen crown at the top of his visor. Looks pretty nice, if I do say so myself. It's odd, I'm not going to be using him anyways. :)

Hoping to get to the LEGO store this weekend, wish me luck!

Recently got in my 10176-1: King's Castle (Non-Kingdoms) from E-bay. I am loving it. I have built Royal Knight's Castle, King's Castle Siege, Castle of Morcia, and Black Knights Castle but this is my favorite Castle build to date. I still need to build Vladek's Dark Fortress and King's Castle (Kingdoms edition) and I will be able to really say which of my castles is my favorite.

Today I bought the Brickmaster Castle book from a clearance in a local market, 10 euros. Still not the best price for the amount of bricks you get, but the assortment is quite nice, and having come late to the party it's nice the get at least few Crown soldiers for variety. The skeletal horse is much better looking than I had thought from the pictures.

Somehow I missed this sale. My friend told me about it and when I went to my local Target the same day and the set wasn't on sale. I'm still trying to figure out if the sale was only for certain regions.

I did however take advantage of the TRU sale this week. I had recently sold a huge lot of my old SW LEGO sets I had collecting dust and decided the proceeds had spent enough time burning a hole in my pocket.

I picked up:

7189 Mill Village Raid x2
7188 King's Carriage Ambush x2 (I felt this set was a little pricey but with the sale it brought it down to an acceptable price point for me)
7949 Prison Carriage Rescue x2
6918 Blacksmith Attack x2

Nice haul!

I picked up a Blacksmiths Attack last week (and a couple of cups of PaB).  Overall I really like the set, I will be getting more in the future, some of the 'Heroica style' weapons are a bit cheesy looking and less satisfying but I'll deal with it, I'm sure I have a box to hi.. store them in  :classic:

Regarding Targets 'Sale', they usually run their weekly Ad from Sunday to Saturday, and they use Red colored signs in the Aisle, either Sale or As Advertised.  They also run their in store special known as a Temporary Price Cut with a Yellow sign, these usually start on Tuesday's and have a variable length and can vary from store to store even in the same area (some stores may have different prices or not even have their in store special).  Both of these are separate from Clearance pricing, that usually gets a sticker and means there will be no more showing up into the store.
If you think something should be on sale drag it to a price scanner, there's usually one near the toy dept and just check it out.

Just got 5 ninja ambushes (well one was missing 5th one is coming in the mail) and a Brickmaster Castle. On sale for 20USD at amazon. Not amazing for only 140 pieces but sure beats NinjaGo spinners. Plus I get an extra crown knight, crown shield, fantasy skeleton, fantasy skeleton shield, and skeleton horse.

Well, since we know Spartans send warrior to battle, and Athenians send craftsmen and such, maybe he bought several Blacksmith Attack sets :)

Taking advantage of some BOGO sales, I bought two Blacksmith Attacks and two Ninjago board games. I made my own blacksmith, which I'll post pictures later. As for the extra Ninjago board game, I plan to make a ninja/skeleton expansion for Heroica. :-)

Queen Ann's revenge... I wanted another ship to battle my previous acquisition, namely the imperial flagship :). She was a nice build, although I prefered the flagship...

Next will be the mill village raid, if it's ever sold in switzerland... (if anyone has a date...)
