Empty Shelves at LEGO Store and Toys R Us Before the Holidays

I stopped by the LEGO Store and Toys R Us just as Hanukkah was starting, and a few days before Christmas, and found lots of out of stock LEGO merchandise, and some empty shelves.

The Toys R Us I went to had two LEGO aisles:

I was surprised to see a Hogwart’s Castle on the shelves, though with the TRU markup, it’s quite expensive:

Another surprise, At-Ats, which I know are harder and harder to come by:

With the Kingdoms line being retired, all they had was Mill Village Raid:

They still had Endor sets in stock, I expect these to be retiring soon. They had most of the big sets in stock: Death Star, Imperial Shuttle, Super Star Destroyer. But the AT-OT Dropships were gone:

They still have plenty of Alien Conquest, another theme that is retiring. But the biggest set: Earth Defense HQ was gone:

    Alien Conquest is in the 2012 retailer catalog. It’s not retiring.
