Need a set of simpsons figs?

Still looking for Simpsons Apu, Nelson and Grandpa to finish my set if anyone can help me out. Have extras of Bart, Ralph, Chief Wiggum and Flanders.

Ugh...

Just when I thought I was out... They pull me RIGHT BACK IN.

Stumbled across the Lego site and noticed the Red Adult Tachymeter Watch was on sale for $139. Plus I had $30 VIP pts in my account. Plus I won the regular season football pool....

Yadda Yadda Yadda.

I just bought the watch. Hopefully it will be good quality.

Please let us know! I've been really wanting one of these, but a little nervous to pull the trigger on a plastic watch.

FYI - My local targets have started their post Christmas clearance on toys which includes lego. I saw some of the older sets on clearance (Jabba's Sail Barge, some of the original Lego Movie sets). YMMV though.

How much were they marked down by? The one here has marked some City sets etc but only 15% or so, keep fooling me with that red sticker in the corner!

Also snagged two more of those storage bins they produced with the sorting tray included, got a red and a blue one, so the primary colors are covered now. Will take a pic to show you guys, tempted to get even more than the 4 I have now, always love a good sorting tray.

There should be a toy markdown today. Target does toy markdowns on Thursdays.

Gonna have to check mine out again. Most of what was left was only 15%. I think they're clearing out all the clearance toys before putting out the new sets. Half the clearance stuff is sharing the lego aisle right now.

Do the markdowns happen during the day or before they open?
