[Brag] Steal of a Deal

Postby Mantisking » Thu Sep 19, 2013 9:00 am

This is a thread for bragging about those Lego/Clone Bricks sets you've purchased at outrageously low prices.

I was looking through the Clearance aisles last night at one of my local Walmarts and stumbled across a couple of sets that were too good to pass up. I found for $19.00 and for $9.00.

I got the Lego Wild Sheep and Race 3000 games at a local goodwill for $4. I saw that, and it was done.

When the End of the World comes, I can assure you, I will be partying to hard to notice.

Spent an hour digging through the bulk bins at BrickCon to fill a $15 bag with all the MFZ-type bits I could find. I'm guessing it's ~1000 pieces. 107 headlights, maybe 200 various clips & lampholders, ~40 cheese wedges, a dozen curved slopes. And TONS of old light/dark grey.

Not the best I've ever thrifted, but not bad. From Savers in West Warwick, RI:
$3 - a nearly new (complete in box with instructions and all the extra factory bits); this one's crying out for a Single Set Challenge
$6 - a partial : ~1/2 of the parts, sadly no die, but all 96 cards (not that I have a use for them) and a dozen other odd parts not from Creationary

This plus the 3x 's on clearance at Walmart for $3ea have made a tiring business trip a little more bearable. :)

I picked up a bunch of sets at TRU the other day. I had a 15% off Clearance coupon and a 20% off transaction coupon. They were running 20% off on selected Lego lines and a BOGO50% on Kre-O. I bought (40 pcs.), (24 pcs.), (90 pcs.), (222 pcs.), (355 pcs.), and (42 pcs.) for $57.25. That comes out to $0.07 per piece.

I see a good ammount of Bionicle while thrifting, but usually priced a bit high. Nice score.

I just got a 40lbs lot of Megabloks from Ebay for $75 delivered. Several stylized baseplates, BURPS and panels along with the whole 40lbs thing I kinda couldn't turn it down.

12lbs for $100 thanks to a . There was just under a pound of misc junk and some crappy Tyco and MegaBloks bricks that got purged, but overall quite a nice haul. I'm guessing ~4000pcs in the upper left tub.

Stopped by a Target on my way home to grab a set to start some SSC musings and found two sets on a random shelf in the Lego aisle; price check returned $0.49. :D Not the best parts selection, but far from useless and at .5 cents/pcs could not be passed up.

If you find yourself in a Target or a Walmart, take a look around. You might find a random holiday polybag at a stupid price.
