hey, i want to know what is lowest price you have ever payed for a lego set, i mean at a store. i found the Temple Of The Crystal Skull set at my wal-mart in july for $25.00 (it had a damaged box), and the Rough Shadow at Good Will for $5.00, witch is the only reason i bought it, since i really didn't want to pay $50.00 for it. i want to know what your lowest price for a lego set was.

I'm not a MOD, but I would guess that this would go in the LEGO Section. I may be wrong, in which case I apologize for posting. If it should be moved, it is an honest mistake that I would be suceptible to making.


I'm trying not to minimod, so someone let me know if I'm doing this wrong. Smile


As for the cheapest price for a LEGO set, I don't know. I've never been in the right place at the right time to get an amazing clearance. The only thing I've bought on sale is MagnaGuard Starfighter during something like 10% off at Target. In terms of cheapness, an impulse City set for my brother for Christmas. But it was at MSRP. You people who get sets for like 80% off are lucky. Wink

Arkham for $22
Batwing for $15
Tie Crawler for $12
ISD for $60

I didn't have to pay any money for my Sandcrawler, but I had to spend a bunch of time using my Lexis Nexis account in law school to get enough points to "buy" it.

My best deal for new sets yet: 79 Euro for the 4504 Falcon and 80 Euro for the UCS Y-Wing.
My best deal for an used set: 125 Euro for the AT-AT, in a time where you couldn't get it for below 200 Euro by ebay.

I've gotten several sets for a penny in my travels. Only sets that went up to 10 dollars or so but at .1% of original value, it's practically free if you can find a penny on the street!

edit: I'm Jewish, anyway to get a menorah on my avatar instead of xmas lights?

The orginal Hogwarts Castle for 5 bucks. Not MISB and without the instructions, but it still had every peice present, and I was able to build the whole castle by looking at the pictures in the Shop@Home catalouge (This was before I found out about the online instructions).

I also got the original soccer match (Grand Slam Challenge?) MISB for 5 bucks at Goodwill.

I'll post anything else if I think of it.

I bought a second ARC-170 Starfighter for $20 back in 2006 at a Target sale. The problem was the fact they only had one left. If they had more in stock, I would have bought two or three of these bad boys for sure. Good thing was I got a set I really liked for 50% off.

I'm going to go ahead and assume you're talking about the Cloud Car set here. Otherwise people are going to break out the torches and pitchforks.

I've never found any great deals in stores. For salebuys, I'd say the Rolling Acres Ranch, an old Pardisa set, for $5. Otherwise, I've gotten a very good deal on boxes of random parts containing cool minifigs.

My wife picked up the orginal Sith Infiltrator for $10.00.

Not a killer deal like others have posted, but I was happy to receive a bunch of grey plates and a Darth Maul for a Hamilton.

The best deal I scored in recent memory (assuming we're not counting free sets from BOGO sales) was a $25 5378 Hogwart's Castle at Target. That was this past Spring I think.

I know I picked up some Spider-Man sets and the Titan XP at Wal-Mart for some ridiculously low clearance prices, but I couldn't tell you how much.

- T-16 Skyhopper for 90% off at K-mart: $1.49
- A bunch of Final Duel IIs during the KB sell-off, but only at 3/$10.
- One year, the WalMart near us was just clearing out LEGO, and I picked up an X-Wing with Yoda hut for $13, a Cantina for $10, the second HP castle (not Draykov's) for $25, and 10 snowspeeders for $5 each. Six of those turned into a 4504 Falcon thanks to Starbeanie, so that was extra-nice.
- Practically the very first time I visited LEGO S@H, the Jango Fett Slave-I was half-price for $25. Someday, I'll sell that mint JF fig and buy a car. . . a nice LEGO car, but still, a car.
