Don't forget to check your Facebook Marketplace! This one is from FB not Kijiji
I find FB Marketplace in Markham/GTA area to be terrible, ppl are asking really dumb prices, Kijiji I find to be much better, there are a few frequent sellers in Markham/Richmond Hill with great prices!

Went to a couple Walmarts in Toronto, still 40$...dam nice find.
It wasn't marked down on the shelf in St. Jacob's but scanned at $18. Looks like there is "limited stock" at Fairview Mall Kitchener.

I dont get it. Walmart shipped my kylo ren fighter in a nice box with bubble padding. How are all these pricey sets getting shipped like garbage.
most likely too many people placing these large orders of LEGO sets and the packer just want to plow through his work orders and just ship them as is. Amazon have done worse. I've had large lego sets from Amazon with just a shipping label on the retail box only. Imagine how banged up it was by the time it made it to the west coast.

I know it's important to receive an item in good shape, but do you guys keep the boxes of big sets? Don't you just leave them assembled?

A good trick can be order 2 sets and return one.
Lots cardboard boxes are made to contain 2 sets a time.
I did 1 time with toys us and one time with walmart.

At toys us was the Mack truck. Both sets came inside a big and perfect size cardboard box with the Lego logo containing perfect fitting the 2 sets .

At Wal-Mart was the Poe xwing

Some people like to collect either for collecting sake or re-sale, and box condition can be very important for iconic/hard to find/UCS sets!

Or if you don't have the time or space to build them lol. I have a locker full of unopened Lego sets. Sometimes I get nervous about some of the sets I've bought over the years when I read about missing parts, etc.

I have the same fear ... 90% of my stuff are large sets 900+ pieces so I'm super worried especially if they are set specific/discontinued elements.

Perhaps nobody sells to you cheap because you call it 'Legos'?
Ok. Why would someone sell that many lego sets for 120?

It was probably a bin with a bunch of sets mixed up.
My nick doesn't mean I'm happy any more than yours means you're a sex machine.
