Walmart Lego price increase

Postby micro » Fri Jun 05, 2009 8:17 pm

Have Walmarts in other areas increased their Lego prices? The ones around me (northern TN and southern KY) have. The prices are as bad as TRU.

So I guess this has only happened in TN and KY? I will be up in Ohio for a few days starting tomorrow. I'll have to check a Walmart up there.

It's scattered, several in this area (but not all) have done it... and given that I leave in the heart of Walmart country, it's odd. But it's mostly the first wave, since as I remember, the new prices match what LEGO moved their prices to stores and the like.
If the above post didn't offend you, you're probably reading it wrong.

Well considering how well LEGO has supposedly been selling lately, I guess it's not too surprising. In Virginia the only sets I see above MSRP are the battle packs at 10.99, and maybe Granite Grinder but I'm not sure.

I don't understand what you're trying to say here. LEGO pretty much by definition sells their sets at MSRP. :p

he ones in Lacrosse and Onalaska, WI are only about $1-$3 above MSRP, and the one in Winona, MN is actually about $1.00 under MSRP.

At our Wal-Mart in NW Colorado the sets are 5% above MRSP except the smaller sets like the battle packs($11.88) and tiny turbos($6.88). It's almost funny because our K-Mart is selling those small sets for less. So much for Wal-Mart 'selling for less'.

I checked a Walmart in Canton, OH. Besides the battlepacks being a little high, the rest of the sets are the same price that Lego sells them for (as far as I could tell).

I was at Wal-mart yesterday (rarely go there, but Target was out of Clone Battle Packs). The battle packs were $10.99 (vs $9.99 on lego.com). All the other sets were below MSRP in true Wal-mart style (i.e., the Republic Shuttle was $58.37 or something odd like that instead of $59.99) :lol:

I just picked up Ahsoka's starfighter (against my better judgement) at a Wal-Mart in southern Indiana for $38.99 - a whopping dollar under MSRP...

Walmart always seems like 2 dollars off the TRU price. I do see Walmart advertise some lego sales every once in awhile...and it's usually an additional 15% (around) off. This is in Canada.

On my way back from Georgia I stopped at a Walmart in S. Pittsburg, TN (near Chattanooga). The prices listed on the shelves there were high as well (example $52.99 for AAT). However, Ahsoka's fighter said it was $41.99 on the shelf but had a price sticker on it that said $38.99.
