I stopped by my local LEGO Store to get the Hulk minifig promo and check out some of the newer sets.
A surprise to everyone, the Kingdoms Chess set appeared on the shelves last week. At $50, you get more than 30 minifigs, an incredible deal for a theme we thought was dead.
LEGO Lord of the Rings hits the shelves. They didn’t have the biggest set, but all others were represented. While many adult fans are thrilled with this lineup, I can’t help but fear that they won’t be big sellers. But… with two Hobbit movies in the works, that may be the momentum needed to drive sales with kids.
LEGO Death Star… this set just won’t go away. Not that I am complaining!
R2D2 really grabs your attention:
New Ninjago on the shelves:
Monster Fighters on display. I was wondering where they would place this in the store. Between Architecture and City I suppose makes as much sense as anything else:
Modulars and exclusives:
City with the new mining themes sets:
The new Beach House set:
They had the monthly mini-build for sale for about $7. I don’t remember them doing this before.
Fire fighter minifigs:
