LEGO at Toys R Us, Spring 2015

by admin on May 22, 2015

I stopped by Toys R Us to see their LEGO selection. WOW, are there a lot of polybags now available. They seemed to be everywhere, and I was surprised to see Rocket Raccoon was still available. It was surprising to see they had the Birds set too, and yes, they still had a little mini-modular set from Bricktober in stock. The coolest thing were the new Mixels Series 5 – really fun designs.

LEGO Store, Spring 2015

by admin on May 17, 2015

I stopped by the LEGO Store — it was cool to see the ferris wheel and Kwik-E-Mart sets on the shelves. Overall, I felt like the store didn’t have enough space for all of the incredible sets that are now out. There were some obvious pieces missing (Death Star, modulars, Simpsons House), but it felt as though even some of the smaller sets (Racers) were missing. I could be wrong, of course, but it’s astounding to see so many Star Wars UCS sets available at once.

I stopped by the LEGO Flatiron District store again. Not much new in terms of stock, but I did spot this guy carefully packing up a pick a brick cup:

LEGO 2015 Sets at LEGO Store Flatiron District

by admin on January 21, 2015

I stopped by the LEGO Store Flatiron District in NYC today, and got to see a lot of the 2015 sets, including the Valentines Day set. The store makes a big deal about the history of the building it is within, with a wall chart of the history, and large brick-built dioramas above the shelves.

There was a Friend’s racetrack that I had never seen before, as well as a super-sized brick-built Gandalf figure.

LEGO Store Rockefeller Center

by admin on January 14, 2015

I stopped by the LEGO Store in Rockefeller Center today. The only notable item were the now “old” green baseplates still available, at a “sale” price of about $5. These are mostly sold out everywhere else, and the new baseplates are a brighter shade of green, and now fetch $7.99 each, I believe.

Back to Target for New LEGO Sets

by admin on January 11, 2015

It seems that Target had mis-priced one of the new LEGO Justice League sets — 76028: Darkseid Invasion — as $59.99, instead of MSRP of $69.99. I found one today, and got to see the rest of the Justice League sets, plus Minecraft, in the store.

As for post-holiday sale markdowns, they had a very slight discount on some sets. I never understand a sale strategy like this – these sets will be bumped around the sale aisle for weeks, just getting more and more damaged.

Target Post-Holiday LEGO Sale

by admin on December 31, 2014

There have been varying reports on LEGO clearance items at Target stores, some people seem to be scoring loads of incredible deals, while others are finding very little. I stopped by my local Target today – a few days after clearance items would be marked, and didn’t find much to be excited about. One thing to note is that my store didn’t seem to have the 50% discount that many other stores did.
