Found a Toy Story Army Men set today, and some Lightning McQueens that weren't there last time I checked. You never know what'll get returned/ found in the back!

Just in Vegas for a trip and they had over 20 advent calendars half off and 3 of the pharaoh's quest pyramids. Both sets were still there yesterday. I picked up a rebel and snowtrooper battle pack and a PLO koon. There was only one of each. Happy hunting! I would be glad to pick up any for anyone, but would need to be paypal'ed first.

Black Pearl was now %25 off but not marked. No other items from the previous sale were around. Looks like another round of markdowns has begun.

I saw the same thing today Darth including...

Ultimate Build Mater - $21
Bounty Hunter Gunship - $35
Grevious Starfighter - $35

All were clearly marked in red on the shelf tag.

My Walmart has 3 Slave 1s with smashed boxes, so I'm waiting to see if those hit deeper clearance. Found another random Hoth BP that wasn't there previously. Grabbed it.

I remember seeing two Slave-1s before Christmas at a Walmart whose boxes looked like they'd been dropped from the ceiling. Both had a 4-inch "crumple zone" on the left side of the box.

I can see the Black Pearl going on discount, b/c there are just waaaay too many of them at Wal Mart.

Oh, forgot to mention that I found a Palpatine Shuttle that was half of and opened. They were gonna knock another 20% off, but upon further inspection of the open box, all the minifigures were gone...I passed figuring the replacement pieces would be more than the difference I should be saving at half off.

I found a Slave 1! Not too local, but the last one within 50 miles. Booyah. Everything everywhere in Colorado Springs is pretty much gone (as far as clearance goes anyway)

I was able to get Mace Windu's Jedi Starfighter for $20 and General Grievous's Starfighter for $35 at two different Wal-marts. I actually went to a total of four different Wal-marts (we were on vacation, and stopped at different ones), and although all but one had some SW stuff on clearance, none of them had it marked on the shelf, and the clearance prices could only be seen by scanning.

If any body in the Bakersfield, CA area is looking for some Freeco speeders, the Walmart next to Sam's club still has plenty of them at 12.50. Also had a few AC Tripod Invaders left at 9.00, a PQ Rise of the Sphinx at 24.50, and a Ninjago Dojo at 24.50.

Looks like the second round of WM 'clearance' may be starting. A lot of the 50% off stuff seems to be gone but there's another group of Lego sets going for $10 off or 30% or 50%, like some of the HP items (Knight Bus, Hogwarts) some other Cars and Pharoah's Quest. Of course there's also the infamous red tag items marked for clearance but still at regular price.

Ah, Wal-Mart. You never disappoint for some good laughs.

Found a few AC Motherships, some SW T6 Jedi Shuttles, several SW Advent Calendars, and one PQ Rise of the Sphinx at clearance prices in one Walmart locally in Bakersfield. If anyone is looking for one of these sets let me know and I'll be happy to pick one up and ship it too you at cost +shipping. Just let me know soon as there were only about three of the AC and T6 shuttles left, scanning at $45 each. The SW Advent calendars were still $19 and the PQ set was $25. Oh, yeah I also found a few City Power Boat Haulers for $19 and a few Cars 2 Jet Escapes at $25. Aaaaand a LOT of Kingdoms Blacksmith Attacks for $5. Let me know.

Man, I'd love to find an Earth Defense HQ for 1/2 off. Unfortunately, the local WMs suffer from two problems: small toy aisles after the re-design, and an extremely limited LEGO selection.

Checked my local Walmart today hoping for further markdowns. Over half the inventory had clearance tags, but most of them were marked with the MSRP! I scanned a few to see if there were any hidden sales, but no dice. Isla de la Muerta on "clearance" at $19.98. Mack's Team Truck on "clearance" at $39.98. The Black Pearl on "clearance" at $99.98. What gives?!

Unless the stickers have a "was" and "now" price, they aren't on clearance. Plain red stickers are just overstock moved to the clearance section. My Walmart does this all the time. The items have been sitting too long and get moved out of the way for new stuff. Eventually they'll get clearance stickers slapped over it if no one buys them.
