Color-Me-Creepy lab, is it on clearance anywhere?
« on: January 22, 2014, 02:52:47 PM »
I've found it pretty cheap on amazon and ebay but I was wondering if anyone had seen it cheap at secondary stores like TJMaxx or in the clearance aisles of walmart or kmart (I already checked Target).

Its about 30$ shipped and I'm just wondering if its been clearanced any cheaper than that at brick and mortar stores

I got mine at Target for $11.68. I'm afraid I haven't seen it anywhere other than that, though. Sorry. :/

That's a good price! I haven't even seen the old Lab go that low! (and I've been watching for it)

The new CMC Lab is still $30-$40 everywhere around me.

I got the older one for $15 for my niece during one of Kmart's half-off clearance toys sales last year, and I bought two of the Color Me Creepy Design Chamber sets for $11.26 each at Target last weekend. I've only seen that price at one of our Target stores (there are sixteen locations here), so it doesn't seem to be a company-wide thing. After I purchased those, they received another full case and stuck them in the clearance aisle at the same price. They were gone within a day or two, and there is still a full-price shelf tag for the set in the Monster High section. I couldn't help wondering if perhaps an employee at that store thought there was something wrong with them due to the color changes in the packaging. The winter weather is causing them to change, whether it's from sitting in a cold warehouse or in the back of a truck, and the boxes had "as-is" stickers over the barcodes.

That's exactly how it was at my Target (and only the one right by me). They had probably a dozen of the sets marked like that, plus clearanced DJ and Oasis sets, but those weren't marked as-is. I don't think there are any still there, though. That was like a week or two ago.

I have to hunt my Targets now! Damn you snow storm! I've wanted that lab since I saw it in the upcoming list, but couldn't justify the price. I did hunt the clearance aisles a couple nights ago, but the only thing I came away with was a $7.50 Catty Noir.

People in my area must love Clearance.  There was nothing MH on the Clearance shelf.  Catty, Spectra and Cleo's sets, and the Scaris sets are all gone from the store.

It's the opposite here, all of that stuff is still on the shelf at regular price :annoyed:

I price checked it at Walmart today, and they actually RAISED the price of the original tattoo-like lab - $40!

Nothing but HtC Abbey, DDG Goona, and all the playsets on their shelves, and not a single item marked down. Even the Coffin Bean is full price.   :|
