One of my local Wal*Mart stores had the two new Lego sets, EP III Starfighter and the new Tie Fighter over on the clearance isle already for $10 each. I got all they had. The other two Wal*Marts in my area had them regular priced ($14.88 and $19.88 ) with the rest of the Legos. Has anyone else seen this?

Wow, that is cheap; isn't the EP3 JSF supposed to be $20 ? (it is on US S@H anyway). It's on clearance in the US & I don't think they've shipped in the UK yet (@15 inc tax). Ho hum ...

Oh man, that's it. I'm going to Wal-Mart tomorrow and making sure they haven't tried to rip me off. If it is $15, I'm going to get my $5 back and buy another JSF... or not. Ooh, urge to buy yellow rising... rising...

Check the Wal*Mart website. It's $14.99 there.

I've found different prices on things at two different stores within 30 miles of each other. They need to be more consistant

I know that. My WalMart prefers to be stupid.

I ran into a Lego rep at a Walmart in Houston. She told me that there was a mistake in the Walmart inventory and the set was deleted from the database. Therefore, all the new sets went into the clearance aisle. They were trying to get it fixed; however, it was causing major problems. Congrats on your find. I think that it may have been just here in Texas so most of ya'll (Texas speak) will just have to wait until next year for that clearance price. So do I. Sad

That happened with the second Falcon in my area. They were marked $99.99 but were ringing up at $39.99. I bought two an left two. I got to thinking about it and decided to go back a few days later and the error had been fixed.

Sometimes we get lucky with Wally World but most times, we get the shaft.
