New LEGO Super Hero Sets

by admin on July 16, 2016

I was pleasantly surprised to see new Spider-Man LEGO sets at my local toy shop. I picked up the new Ghost Rider set:

Heading into Summer with LEGO at Toys R Us

by admin on June 16, 2016

When I go to Toys R Us, the most interesting finds are the little polybags and small boxed sets that are usually not on my radar. This time they had the Ninjago battle pack, and I wasn’t expecting to find the snowman set. I had remembered that being a seasonal promotion only at LEGO Stores — not something you find in June at Toys R Us.

LEGO at Toys R Us, Spring 2016

by admin on May 1, 2016

Whenever I look at LEGO at a store like Toys R Us, what is always fascinating is seeing what I would call the “leftover” themes — the sets or themes that I can’t believe are still on the shelves, long after LEGO has shined a promotional spotlight on them. This time, there was that one Hobbit set on the shelf that jumped out at me.

Probably the highlight of this trip was the Captain America polybag.

First Trip to the LEGO Store in 2016

by admin on February 5, 2016

My first trip to the LEGO Store this year, their Flatiron store. It was nice to see the new modular, the Ghostbusters HQ, and others. My honest take: I can’t keep justifying spending $200+ on so many of these big sets. I’ll still be collecting, but fewer and fewer purchases:

LEGO at Barnes & Noble, January 2016

by admin on January 4, 2016

I’m still surprised that Barnes & Noble continues to carry so many toys, but it was nice to see some 2016 LEGO sets on the shelves already.

LEGO at Toys R Us, just after Christmas

by admin on January 4, 2016

It was fascinating to see the LEGO stock at Toys R Us, a week after Christmas. The Star Wars sets were almost completely wiped out, as expected. A bunch of 2016 sets were on the shelf. The rest was a mixed bag.

LEGO at Toys R Us, Fall 2015

by admin on September 18, 2015

I stopped by Toys R Us to see what LEGO they had to offer. As usual, an enormous double aisle display, plus a big row by the front door. New Star Wars: The Force Awakens sets were in stock, as were exclusives such as Wall-E, Big Bang Theory, and Ghostbusters:
