This post is about the LEGO Creator Lighthouse Point Building Set, 31051 on clearance at certain WalMart's for $21, but is also about how to deal with the Walmart YMMV clearance threads.

Brickseek link for the lighthouse set:

The great thing about Walmart's summer toy clearance is that you can essentially do your Christmas shopping in July and August. The maddening problem is the inventory listed on Brickseek is often very inaccurate, mostly due to Walmart's junk inventory tracker system.

Tools to use in conjunction with Brickseek

The first thing that I did was get clear ideas from my kids (and wife) about what they'd like and focused my search on this. I've found, of all things, that Instagram is an excellent source of information about what deals are on sale using the # system. Tags like #walmartclearance and #legoclearance give you some insight about recent markdowns.

The Walmart app on your droid or iphone also scans items in store and gives you the in store price at nearby locations. It's a solid way to compare prices.

After I have all the items, I organize them and track them. I use a Google Doc Spreadsheet to organize and keep track of the deals, where they are in stock, how many, and if the price continues to fall. That's basically it. It's madness, but we all share it! I've copied my sheet below. Some of these are already posted on SD.

I did more looking, inspired by this post, and found that Captain Rex's AT-TE (75157) is marked as low as $5.50 and $11 in some stores. My local store says it had 2, but I couldn't find any. Hopefully someone else can get lucky.

Yeah, the AT-ET and even the old Clone Wars turbo tank popped up for as low as $25, but I'm guessing these are inventory errors and the sets are long gone.

I've been unable to find much Lego clearance around me. brickseek says there's 2+ things all around me at stores but I go and employees have no clue where any of it is. haven't had any luck.

It's either located with the full price stock in the regular lego isle, mixed in a special Clearance isle with stock from around the store, occasionally on a yellow clearance cart in the center of an isle, or, wait for it, not actually in the store. Remember. Brickseek pulls inventory numbers from Walmart's own stock tracking system, which is hot garbage.

FWIW, I dropped by two Walmarts today in La Habra, CA (Beach Blvd and Imperial Hwy). Lots of bare shelves and looked like they were in the middle of reorganizing. Lots of clearance tags in the Lego aisle (but empty selves). I picked up two Resistance (blue) X-Wings for $45 each at Imperial Hwy, leaving 4 more on the shelf, which matches Brickseek. Happy hunting.

Would you mind sharing the zip for the AT-TE @$5.50 for Discover PM? Weymouth MA 02188 shows limited stock @ $11, but your price is better than what I found.

Cheers.
