I decided to stop by my local Toys R Us to check out the Bricktober sales event they have to honor LEGO. They had 30% off a selection of maybe 20 sets, a pretty good selection, plus 10% off everything else. In addition, they offered a $10 gift card with purchase of $75 or more, a free collectible retro minifig magnet and I think some Jeffrey dollars if you spent more than $100. The regular LEGO aisle was somewhat crowded – this was the extended LEGO display area:
And still more hidden behind the poll. I was surprised they still had Millennium Falcons still in stock at 30% off. I went late in the day.
An interesting way to display the collectible minifigs series 5 at the end of the LEGO aisle:
I have never noticed this before: the LEGO Designer’s Tool Set:
My purchase: Mill Village Raid and King’s Carriage Ambush. Total came to $82, plus I got the magnet and the $10 gift card.
Here is the magnet, the first in a series of four. Ninja Princess. This year the minifigs are glued onto the magnet. Bummer.
