New 2012 Sets Arrive at the LEGO Store

by admin on January 16, 2012

My first trip to the LEGO Store in 2012, and I was greeted with my first look at some of the new sets.

Like an oasis in the distance, the LEGO Store appears…

As usual, plenty of activity. The Build a Mini station always seems to be busy:

An AFOL talking to the manager. I like when the LEGO employees are as into it as the customers:

My first look at the mini modular set. My original intention was to buy this set with a 10% coupon I had. But I have to say: I found it very underwhelming. Maybe I am spoiled by having the full sized modulars, but I can’t think of a reason to buy and build this other than “collectability.” They had a ton of them in stock, and word is that they aren’t moving very quickly at all. I can’t figure out who the target audience is. Yes, I will likely end up with one, and perhaps this will be one of those ‘holy grail’ sets down the road. But for now, my reaction is: “meh”

Series 6 of the Collectible Minifigures are now in stock. An employee said they went through 20 cases in just a couple of days.
