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:

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.
