LEGO Lord of the Rings and Kingdoms Chess Set Arrive

by admin on May 23, 2012

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.

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:

They had the monthly mini-build for sale for about $7. I don’t remember them doing this before.
