I stopped by a LEGO Store on New Year’s eve, and was surprised how wiped out it was of product. They had 4 or 5 things on sale, literally 4 or 5 boxes with a 10% or so sale sticker on it. But the rest of the shelves with regularly priced merchandise were pretty much wiped clean too.
A few new sets were spotted, Batman Arkham Asylum and Horizon Express.
Perhaps the most interesting thing I saw was that outside the LEGO Store was a kiosk with a third-party LEGO seller, Brick Warriors,which were selling LEGO minifig accessories of their own design.
