Saw this on the shelf of a local TRU.  Little Mason didn't see the investment potential of the Arctic Helicrane.

It's  hard to say. We're all too lazy to look up your set numbers and potential discount.

Should have kept the purchase and used the feedback mechanism to voice your concerns. Does wonders to if you leave them a 1 out of 10 and tell them their service stunk.

Was at target and found several LEGO sets in the clearance isle.  Didn't buy a single one.  Why?  Because none of them were on sale!  That's right.  I priced a couple and they were still at full price.  (NOTE: LEGO constraction sets to lower left on bottom shelf and Solo LEGO sets on top shelf just right of center of the pic).  
Me: "Excuse me can you please price this? ...  Why is this full price when it is in the clearance isle?"
Target emp: "They have been discontinued by the manufacturer." 
Me: "They're in the 50% clearance isle but they're not 50% off?"
Target emp: "No, only the things on the third shelf are 50% off, everything else is just discontinued." 
Me: *facepalm*

That employee did you a favor.

Poor kids in the day only got 442 and 897. The rich kids got 924. 

Oh, I coveted my 924.  That was beyond a doubt, my favorite LEGO set from my youth.

Shocking, just shocking! I can't BELIEVE it! Something in the WRONG spot in a RETAIL store?! No way! Unacceptable!

It wasn't in the wrong spot.  Employee told him everything else in the area was there because it was discontinued.  Just not marked down.

Admittedly, I'm not a fan of any of the sets they had but at 50% off I'm always willing to take a look. 

I just thought it was ludicrous that Target has a whole clearance isle and only one shelf of that is actually 50% off.

I ordered the Saturn 5 in Walmart; but then changed my mind and cancelled (self cancellation a thing?)

anyway, I already have one built for my collection so I was walking thru the process of reselling and the obvious issues: big box (check), hoard up the wazzu (check), buy-in "just" 25% off...so I thought...Nah!

After searching for a Kessel Run Millennium Falcon for myself during clearance sales and coming up empty, I finally found a lone one at my local Target today.  I passed on it because it was scanned at $135.20.  The See low price in cart option does not show a price because it is no longer in stock on Target.com.   :(  

My quest continues...

Returning 3xForma plus Gingerbread House freebie and sticking to my commitment to get out of selling.

I stopped buying about 1/2 year ago and was trying to get rid of my remaining stock, then got back into it this black Friday. I personnally wanted to space back in the house, what made you stop?

I'm tired of going up into the attic to get boxes and packing material. If I had a dedicated room for storage the task would be less onerous but I'm also no longer interested in the chase for bargains. Basically, my time is worth more than the profit available.

Lol, I just got sucked back into it during Black Friday week as well after not buying, just selling inventory the past three years.  Not only had I sworn it off, but I'm pretty sure I've spent more the last part of this year than any year previously.  Crazy!

Can't believe the amount of product out there this year. I thought the big post Christmas clearance runs were just a thing of the past.

I did not buy a lone Harvester Transport set at Target for $20.98 because I was able to buy three about 1-2 months for $7 less, and did not buy three Hogwarts Express at 30% off because they have been on clearance for less at Walmart, though much harder to find and instantly gone where I live, and that buy-in is too high for me.

Not today, but the other day, when both Amazon and Walmart had DC Minifigs for $3.44 each.

I put them in my cart, but got busy and by the time I went to order them, they were sold out.

The whole set are still available at Minifigsplus for $68
