I’m back! While I haven’t been buying LEGO, I have still been following LEGO news, and checking out the LEGO section whenever I am in stores. I will actually be getting rid of even more of my LEGO, really pairing down to just a small collection of sets I want to display. But I really like this hobby and community, so I have zero plans of disappearing.
I have taken plenty of photos of LEGO sections at stores this year, but hadn’t had the time to post until now. I recently stopped by Toys R Us, and boy did their LEGO section grow. Not only does LEGO still occupy a main wall when you walk in, but it is a huge section now, not just one aisle.
I can’t help but ask how they will sell all of this – how much more LEGO can be sold, even during the holidays? Okay, let’s take a tour:
Here is the big wall of LEGO at the front of the store, a mix of different themes:
The entrance to the LEGO section:
Behold! This is almost double the size of the previous LEGO section:
It’s hard to believe that these older Ninjago sets are still plentiful:
Not a bad sale for LEGO minifigures:
Legends of Chima is a theme I haven’t paid too much attention too, mostly because I’ve been overwhelmed by the sheer number of new minifigs, pieces, and colors. Very cool looking stuff though:
A more classic Castle theme. Funny how the castle set has that alarm on it, was this a primary target for theft?
Monster Fighters still lingering:
The 2013 LEGO Star Wars Advent calendar. In previous years, you could barely give these away it seemed:
Evidently, this is the last of the Planet sets for the US. I heard that series 4 is being released elsewhere, but not here:
An example of why I have to stop collecting LEGO in the way I had previously. As amazing as this looks, I can’t possibly keep up. And this is just ONE theme! And it doesn’t take into account things such as army-building. Love the minifigs though:
So much lovely Star Wars LEGO:
While I don’t care for the Lone Ranger brand, these sets are very impressive:
Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Another theme I would love to get into in a really big way, but simply don’t have the space:
Pretty awesome looking Technic race car:
Toys R Us exclusive polybag:
More big Technic sets:
City. At this point, there is so much to look at, I’m not even noticing individual sets:
A pretty good selection of baseplates too!
