"LEGO blocks return to Wal-Mart shelves"Posted by Huw, 20 Feb 2008 17:04So my Google news alerts claim today, so the sad news for Canadians was short lived :-)You can read more here 26 comments on this article By marcussmithAFTERTHECRASH, 20 Feb 2008 17:03This must be great for Canadian Lego fans! By rockdog3, 20 Feb 2008 18:13Thats cool. Funny too, like how brickshelf.com was said to shut down, it didn't. Maybe Exo-Force won't be discontinued either! :) But thats good for Candian Lego fans. By Absimilliard in Canada, 20 Feb 2008 18:43Interesting news... I hope this mean lower prices for us! Meanwhile, I took advantage of their clearance sales (Sith Infiltrator, Fireboat for 20$, Skeleton Chariot 15$ and 3 Crossbow attacks for 5$ each!). By Leggodt94 in United States, 20 Feb 2008 19:12WOW! That's incredible! I'm sure people like ARC170Dinofighter are really happy about this! By omgbrick in Canada, 20 Feb 2008 19:41That's good news for me and any other Canadian Lego fans, but we better still get lower prices even if its like a few dollars of each set. Its good to see that Megabloks won't get all of Wal-Mart's self space. By Pegasi in United States, 20 Feb 2008 20:12Pfft. I don't think wal-mart deserves the extra sales. By rockdog3, 20 Feb 2008 20:58Hehe, good point. By Imperial13 in United States, 20 Feb 2008 23:27Neither do i, as I am not a huge Wal-Mart fan-never actually been in one... Congratulations Canadian LEGO fans!!! By fubuki in Japan, 20 Feb 2008 23:46Hmmm, I guess this means the end of their clearance binge. Came across it a couple weeks ago while stocking up on items for the coming baby. Like Absimilliard, I found the Skeleton Chariot for 15$ - the real killer was the Skeleton Tower I got for 35$!! Shoulda hit more stores while I had the chance... By fubuki in Japan, 21 Feb 2008 01:24Perhaps I should clarify: The LEGO was for me, not the new baby. Well, not yet, at least. By Luke Skytalker in New Zealand, 21 Feb 2008 02:34That's nice. It seems that Canadians are extra happy about all the sales and stuff going on at walmart. Nice to have a happy day or forum on Brickset. :-) By b_whytcross in Australia, 21 Feb 2008 03:58That's good news for Canada (LEGO using a more realistic pricing structure)...Now if only LEGO can do the same for the rest of the world instead of having other countries with prices that make it appear they are subsidising cheap LEGO the US. After all, it's unlikely that the $US will go up in value in the short-medium term the way things are at present. By Commander Fox in Australia, 21 Feb 2008 05:59the title of this discussion doesnt actually say there coming back to sell, mabe there making their shelves out of lego. loopholes are fun :D By Luke Skytalker in New Zealand, 21 Feb 2008 12:57Ha ha, Commander. Yeah, lego blocks return to Walmart shelves. So sad, the employees just got asked to dismantle the shelves and now they have to reassemble them. Poor employees. Ha ha. By legoville410 in United States, 21 Feb 2008 13:42Hey u can't say that the prices of lego in the U.S. are cheap!$15 Bucks for the air mail set! Come on. But the most likely reason that we have LOWER prices is because their office is in Enfield, Conneticut, and they have a factory in Tennesse. By Pegasi in United States, 21 Feb 2008 14:10Are you kidding? Here we get lego for about half the price people have to pay in europe.. and I don't know about canada, but needless to say, the US is by far the cheapest place to buy lego. The reason they're expensive everywhere is because it's better quality than many other toys. By mocha in Canada, 21 Feb 2008 19:06WOW this is awesome!!! Thank you tlc and walmart!!! :^) By Exo-ForceFan in N/A, 21 Feb 2008 19:29Yay, I live in Canada. By ARC170Dinofighter in Canada, 21 Feb 2008 21:54That I am, Legodt. I feel like I want to jump for joy. Wal-Mart, you are free from your dordia! This perhaps the best day of my life. Hearing Wal-Mart and Lego are back sound like two arguing friends making up! P.S. what does tlc stand for? By Luke Skytalker in New Zealand, 21 Feb 2008 22:28ARC170Dinofighter, there was a bit of debate about the acronym; TLC. Obviously it was mentioned and then assumed by someone that it meant The Lego Company, and so it went on from there. That is what we are talking about, but in other context it is known as Tender Loving Care. By daanton in Canada, 21 Feb 2008 23:41Thank goodness!I wonder what the prices will be, though? By legoguysw in United Kingdom, 23 Feb 2008 07:33I'm so happy for those canadian Lego fans!TLC= The Lego CompanyTLC also stands for Tender Loving Care, of which The Lego company and Wal Mart didnt have much of for eachother! No offense. By ARC170Dinofighter in Canada, 25 Feb 2008 17:59Oh, thanks, guys. I was confused because there was a channel I knew that was called TLC but I knew you weren't talking about that because that's for renovating and clothing. By GreatBear in Canada, 07 Mar 2008 11:53No deals here. The Vancouver area stores I was in never restocked after xmas. I'll be interested to see if WalMart gets a price break. The latest sets, the Knight and Troll battle Packs are $18 for 5 minifigs! What's up with that? The friggin Star Wars sets with the Lucasfilm licensing build in are only $13 for 4 minifigs and a vehicle! By Luke Skytalker in New Zealand, 07 Mar 2008 21:54Maybe they are making star wars the new retail pricing base. By ARC170Dinofighter in Canada, 13 Apr 2008 15:58Sorry buys, I have terrible news. I am very dissapointed. I have heard that the agreement hasn't worked out. I'm sorry canadian lego fans, If you hear this, please mourn the loss of walmats lego. Commenting has ended on this article.
