Can you at least post the items without the prices? Seems rather elitist to go "I have a list that you can't see" and then offer to post it when it will be available on the LEGO website.

Just my .02

Just to confirm the local Lego stores have the same prices as the website on sales like this correct?

Any way we can get a vague idea of what themes are most represented in this sale?

Last year they had the same clearance prices in store on Dec. 26th...but get there early. At one of the Lego stores here an employee told me they had two $5000+ transactions within the first half hour or so.

Ditto, The store near me has at least three large resellers (They buy a lot, they aren't fat. Well. one is) They'll be there at 10 am on X-mas just in case.

I so far have confined myself to Star Wars and Kingdoms (castle), Can I expect to find much on a good deal you think?

I was going back and looking at the age of things and I imagine they would be clearing out the same things as else where (freeco, Lukes land speeder, ...) Most of the older kingdoms stuff is already gone from (Target, Walmart)so maybe some of the sets the same age as kings castle, outpost attack from kingdoms? Any chance the kingdoms battle pack getting cleared out? Any other speculation? Thanks

I am still new to figuring out when things are phased out.

please be patient. i'm not trying to be elitist. i initially posted the list prematurely. we all knew it was coming, so i decided to keep the thread active to allow a discussion to take place.

again, please be patient.

Well, I'm going to subscribe to the thread, so once it does go live if someone could post that its live so i'll get an email, that would be GREATLY APPRECIATED.

My problem is that I'll be traveling xmas eve night, then again xmas night, so I might miss it because of that.

So my local Lego store is pretty wiped out of everything that might have been clearanced, no kingdoms, no harry potter,no atlantis, no pharaohs, only one ship from Pirates but they expect that to sell out between now and tomorrow.

Last year what % off did they clear out the Bakery/Toy shop out at?

This is exciting. I don't have any money, but I'm still in anticipation of what will be available at what prices.

Sale is live in the UK and the other worldwide sites I checked. Discounts are not too specatular. Very reminiscent of post-christmas sales in years past (with the exception of last year).
