I got out of work early today and bopped over to the Walmart nearest my house. I continued my streak of finding Clearance sets while I was there, purchasing for $9.00 USD.

In addition to some decent little bits from the PAB wall, I got a bunch of series 1 mixels for just under $4 each. There's a bin full of 'em at the Lego Store in the South Shore Plaza in Braintree, MA.

Used, bulk bricks are almost always a great deal.
- Ordering used on Bricklink is a gamble, but usually not too risky.
- Thrifting bags allows you to see most of the bricks, but the mix of pieces can be random.
- Picking your own bricks in person guarantees good pieces.

Case in point is this $9US bag of used bricks off the loose, bulk table at in Denton, TX USA.

Not sure the actual brick count but it's gotta be close to 900. I was focused on pieces forMFZ so picked lots of small pcs: snot, clips, taps/T's. Lots of good stuff in this mix including some red/green/blue sand and some ODG & OLG and all for around $0.01/pc.

They also offer a large bag for $16. Nice people, great little store. They have quite an inventory and run a Bricklink store too (no experience with with their Bricklink store). I also picked two bags of Duplo from a bulk box (large bag for $12): approx 75pcs for $24 (mostly slopes and curves). If you live or find yourself between Oklahoma City and Dallas, I highly recommend a stop.

A local Dallas area AFOL published which includes MInifigs, Bricks & More's small bag.

Look around your area, or the areas you may travel too, for independent stores that have bulk pick-a-brick tables/boxes. Some vendors at Lego cons/expos offer bulk pick-a-brick too.

With the deal over at Lego store currently, I used my $5 dicount to buy the Mini AT-AT model for $5.38. this was all I needed to earn a free mini AT-DP, meanking I got two Star wars kits that could easily each be a frame for around $2.70.

by , on Flickr

I heard a rumor that Walmart had . It was marked down, but sadly only to $69.97.

However, what I did find, tucked in the back of a clearance rack, was a banged up for $41. It's a good discount (it just drops it down to a hair under $0.07 per piece). But, the real steal-of-a-deal part is that it's a set from 2013 that hasn't been available on Lego.com since April '14.

I swung by Target tonight on the way home, mainly because it was near a few stops I had to make and I felt like it. I wandered into the Lego aisle and saw sitting on the shelf . I immediately took it over to the scanner to check the price. "Item Not Found." I asked the employee in the department if he could get me a price. He sent me to the Customer Service desk. After a few minutes of checking, the employee at the Service Desk called the Manager, whom told him to call the Toys associate. Long story short, I got it for $20. :twisted:
