Went to a local Meijer intended to take advantage of the LEGO sales and came upon this set by happenstance. Rescued it for $16 plus tax. First Harry Potter set in my collection.
Stopped by a local TRU and as expected the prices on the LEGO sets were still high even after BOGO 40% off 😦
However, noticed a few #9468 Vampyre Castles and decided to pick one up after the store agreed to match the LEGO.com price. The set has been getting a lot of interest and is regularly out of stock on LEGO.com. I thought I should at least have one in my collection. Too bad I couldn’t get them to discount it further with BOGO 40%.
Along with the purchase I received a 5-pk TRU exclusive minifigures, the first out of three. It contains a robber, a police man, a girl in orange dress, a nurse, and a joker. The pieces are pretty ordinary but can’t complaint as a freebie.
Will attempt to stop by another local TRU to hunt for bargains.
