3 cents? That is a steal of a deal! :o

Our PaB wall had black headlight bricks in stock! I naturally grabbed a few hundred or so at dirt-cheap. Now I've got both travis and headlight bricks in significant quantity.

Last Sunday I was at the final liquidation sale of the local mom and pops hardware store in our little burg :( .

Across the street from their driveway was some free stuff left over from a yard sale the day before- I picked up the 75049 Snowspeeder set in the box with the parts bags unopened!!! 8-)

I'm superpsyched, but I'd give it back to have the hardware store open again.

Local Target had a ton of Halo-Bloks on clearance, but this one was the best deal, price per piece, and has the largest concentration of clip-tiles I've ever witnessed. $9.98+tax: sold.

I will probably grab one of these myself.

I think I made the Steal of a Deal of a lifetime last Friday. I saw a 70124 Eagle Legend Beast on the shelf of the Northborough TRU after they'd been out for a while. I brought it over to the scanner and it came up $0.03!!!! I ended up buying it along with a few other sets.

I picked up the A8604 Kre-O G.I.Joe Terror Drome set out of a Clearance bin at Toy'R'Us last night for $62.90. It was obviously a return and I haven't opened it yet to see if anything is missing. I'm hoping it's a complete set.

I picked up the Kre-O sets A0989 U.S.S. Missouri Alien Showdown and A4879 Klingon Starfleet Attack for $29.99 each last night. That's a $0.04 Price per Piece for both of them.

Great finds! Looks like the U.S.S Missouri would make a pretty stellar 7p battleship; seems a bit clowncar-ish at 14p. Klingon Starfleet assault will give you tons of supplies for "Biggest Brick Challenge" builds.

I've probably spent a lot more than that. I'll have to make sure my wife never sees this post. :lol:

I found 3 copies of the TIE Advanced Prototype (75128) Microfighter at my local Walmart for a bit over 6 bucks. The boxes were really crushed and I think one of them might actually be short a piece or two, but considering the MFZ friendly parts list and the nice printed parts, I thought it was a good deal and nabbed them all.

Not sure how much of a deal I got, but the local Salvation Army finally had some Legos in a while ago. I picked up 9 bags at $3.99 each, there were more, but I had already taken most of em, and didn't wanna be a jerk. I finally got around to washing and sorting them, totalled around 9 pounds for about $40.

Unopened:

And the chaff: there is a pretty nice matchbox car, some Playmobile, assorted random toys, a BMW key, and yes, chap stick, a battery, and a dry noodle!

A local store had a few sets on discount.

I got the Future Flyers Creator set (31034) and the Propeller Plane Creator set (31047) for 10 euros each. That's a 50% discount compared to the Lego website :D

Stopped by the Natick Mall on my way back from the airport last sunday. Spotted Emmet's Excavator in the clearance bin for $5.98. Closest thing to .10 PPP Lego Dimensions that I'll likely ever see, so I grabbed that up. Picked up the two Medix I didn't have, two of the MCFD, and hit the PaB on my way out. Not a bad haul for $37.11.

I'm going to resurrect this topic, despite Blorf's deal-shaming. :mrgreen: I picked up three copies of 41179 Queen Dragon's Rescue at Target for $28.48 each. Booyeah!

I got a 70320 Aaron Fox's Aero-Striker V2 for 50% on Clearance at [Meijer I think] last week! :mrgreen:
I still have yet to build it though, and I'm not quite sure if there are that many MFZ-worthy parts in it.
