    Even at $2.00 a pack, they are expensive for what you actually get. That probably wouldn't matter if the game was popular; but I get the feeling that it wasn't (my son lost interest in it pretty quickly).

    Nice find!
  4. LEGO Nexo Knights 2017 Discussion

    I wouldn't be surprised if Series 2 of the Nexo Power Packs doesn't get released in some regions (like the last wave of Star Wars planets and the last wave of Chima constraction figures didn't get released in North America). Here in the U.S., some retailers couldn't even sell them for half price. I watched in amazement last Thursday as a Target employee emptied a nearly full box of Series 1 packs (which were marked 50% off) into the store's "donate" bin. It was too late for me to save them.... :(

    I sincerely hope not. I was never able to accquire the TLBM keychain because there aren't any Cinemark theaters near me.

    Have we seen this set before?
  10. (MOC / MOD) Pilot Luke

    My son is a huge fan of Star Wars; but he isn't a huge fan of The Force Awakens That didn't stop me from buying him the entire line of constraction figures based on the movie, though (it helps that I found most of them on sale). While he was putting together Poe Dameron, he told me that he wished he had a second Luke Skywalker head so he could turn it into Pilot Luke. Being the indulgent father (and avid bargain seeker) that I am, I did exactly that. Here is the result: We didn't want Luke's pilot suit to look identical to Poe's, so we changed a few things. We replaced all the white in Poe's suit with black (it would have been better to use gray; but we didn't have the necessary pieces in gray). We also changed the hose setup slightly. It's not very movie-accurate; but we were both happy with it. He has already requested another Luke Skywalker head so he can make a "Luke in Stormtrooper Disguise" figure....

    Before heading to the store, I suggest visiting Walmart's website (https://www.walmart.com/). If you click on the "My Local Store" link at the top of the page, it will take you to a search engine where you can look up the inventory--including prices--of the stores closest to you. Choose a store from the list near the top of the page (you may have to enter your ZIP code) and then type in a key word to search for ("lego" works well for me). If you don't find any good deals, you can save yourself a trip to the store. Bear in mind that most Walmarts (in my area, at least) list all clearance items as "out of stock" on the website; so if the search engine shows some good deals but says the items are out of stock, it is still worth making a trip to the store to check (there's a 50/50 chance--based on my experience--that the items will still be there). There have been several times that I have found great deals on the inventory checker and arrived at the store to buy them before the prices on the shelves had been changed (the Battle on Takodana set I bought on Monday was still marked as full price on the shelf but it rang up for $15--which matched the price on the website--at the register). I hope this helps.

    I took another trip to Walmart. This time, I bought Killer Croc Tail-Gator (70907) for $30 and The Scuttler (70908) for $30.

    I bought Battle on Takodana (75139) for $15 at Walmart today.
  14. What did you buy today?

    Walmart is clearing their shelves to make room for the new wave of sets. I just bought Magic Rescue from the Goblin Village (41185) for $20, Lance's Twin Jouster (70348) for $7, and The Water Dragon Adventure (41172) for $7.
