PotC in TRU already?

Posted by ,

burakki62 has commented in the article below that PotC sets are available in some TRU branches in the UK already. I'm mentioning it here as a separate article because dermott47 emailed to say that in his branch he saw them getting ready for a 3-for-2 offer which runs until the weekend after Easter.

If you find a branch with PotC sets AND that offer, do let us know!

Update: Mr_Le_Pook writes "Toys R' Us in Chester had shipping boxes of 'Pirates of the Carribean' Lego in the aisles this afternoon which had stickers saying 'Do not put on shelves until after April 15th'. I asked customer services if they were for sale and was told that they were.

"I took a 'Fountain of Life' set to the tills and was then told that they could not sell it yet. After a chat with the manager for clarification and several calls to head office I was allowed to buy the set for £19.99 (probably due to my disappointed looking son being with me).

"It seems there was some confusion across Europe about the actual release date, but the impression I was given was that the sets would be on the shelves and available for purchase tomorrow! The sets I saw were 'Fountain etc., The ship, London escape and The Fort'"

The TRU website is showing 3 for 2 on a number of products, but I can see no mention of LEGO at the moment. It would certainly be great to be able to get 3 for 2 on these sets the day they appear, however, so fingers crossed....

i was in the tamworth store this evening, buying some series 4 mini figuers for my sons easter basket (bought an 8015 assasins droid battle pack which they had back in stock too) and there was no sign of any POTC sets or 3 for 2 offers, will have to go back tomorrow now, how sad ;)

CapnRex101: I'm going to the lego store tomorrow and maybe the toys r us. I'll keep you posted as I heard rumours the Lego store already have them. I've seen the prices and I'm not impressed but none the less I will still buy them.

If only I had money....

Does having a disappointed-looking son always help so much? Hmm, I may not be able to talk on the forum, but perhaps my youngness could help here...

*Evil laughs*

@bodybomb3 - Many thanks for that, I have the same plan on Friday!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@CapnRex101 - I really hope they have them but I have known that particular branch of Toys R Us to be very disappointing when it comes to stocking new releases

Update, I just checked amazon.co.uk to find out of curiosity that all the sets have been stated to be in stock on 21 April which is sooner than the original date of May 3 so thats good to know I will get them soon even if they don't have them at the Lego Store.

one of my local lego stores(downtown disney CA) has ever single POTC set, the lady said she didnt know when they had gotten them in, but it appeared almost if they hadnt been seen yet, multiple of every set, I only got the captains cabin, and the box was SOSOSOSOSSOOSOSOSOSOSO unbelievably small, like the size of two collectable minifigures packets side by side, anyways the sets AMAZING!!!! love the ships in the bottles, and the GLOBE :)

Does Wal-mart have them yet?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I was at my local lego store today and they had just about every POTC set. I was going to get the Captain's Cabin until I saw it was $11.99! Sorry but that's just too much money for such a tiny set.

Just checked out on Toys R Us Canada website, all the PotC sets are available for pre-order.

Just out of curiosity got someone at Tesco to check their system hoping for some good news like with Ninjago last year appearing in stores over a month early. No luck this time - they have all the POTC sets there with a note - not on sale untill 11/9/11!!!

Toysrus in Dundee have PoC in stock and have the the 3 for 2 offer. They also had the new creator house. Between trus and Argos atleast some decent offers in the uk at long last.

I've just been to the Brighton lego store and it seems they don't have PotC in stock, I asked an employee and he said the release date was May 1st. In the end I didn't get round to going to toys r us but I hope to soon

By in United Kingdom,

To the UK people who have already bought some PotC sets - how much did they cost? Were they the same price as the RRPs on Amazon? Thanks. (PS I am in the UK despite my computer thinking I'm in the USA).

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Can confirm Plymouth TRU have them in stock and available to buy now

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The London Escape was £46.99 so slightly cheaper than Amazon. Isle de Muerta £19.99; Fountain of Youth £19.99; Cannibal Escape £26.99 or £25.99; Captain's Cabin £10.49, Whitecap Bay £71.99, Queen Anne £102.99. I bought Isle de Muerta and Fountain of youth. Cracking sets!

The Mill wasn't in my TRU, is it an exclusive for somewhere??

TRU Hayes had them this evening and they were in the buy 2 get the 3rd free promotion. Be careful what order you pay for them in though so you can maximise your discount as its the cheapest item free.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

They are all available on Amazon.co.uk as well now, despite pre-orders stating 3rd May.

@Jabba the Taff what TRU was that you couldn't find it in? I had the same trouble at my local TRU In Tamworth but my dad managed to get to Derbys TRU and he said they were not on the shelves but he phoned in hand an they were waiting for him at customer services

@legoman98 - Stoke Festival Park. Thanks, nice to know The Mill is available at TRU, how much is it?

timberlake29 thank you for the heads up re Cribbs, no wasted trip for me. Will look in Bris again soon and update. The wife really wants a Jack minifig.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Jabba the Taff it was £40.99. Glad to be of help :-)

By in United Kingdom,

Currently the lego shop online isn't available so I'm sensing they are posting the PotC sets now. If you got to the normal lego homepage UK and go to the bottom you'll see it says "Whitecap Bay.......Shop Now"! Check it out for yourselves

TRU in Brighton said not yet. Hopefully they'll come out before the offer runs out on Monday

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

No POTC in TRU Swansea, but the 3 for 2 offer is on and the shelves are loaded with sets.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm off to Brighton, can't wait. Not on the shelves yet but i have been given the nod

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Just got back, and I can confirm that Brighton TRU have all the sets on 3for2 offer. They are just going on the shelves now. Cannibal Escape is £26.99

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Anyone know if they're in stock in the TRU by Walsgrave Hospital?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm jetting of to Germany so I'll have to see what I find but if theres nothing there I'm going to the Brighton one soon after

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

they now have a restriction online against the pricey sets 8098, 8038 etc

but not before I snagged 3 AT-ATs for £199 :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^ Jammiedodger714 yes they are in stock at TRU at cross point multiples of all sets in stock at close tonight :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^Thankyou so much! Got the four smallest ones, and some are reviewed on Eurobricks.com already. :)
Still plenty left there if anyone is interested!

By in United Kingdom,

The problem comes when people start bringing someone's disappointed looking son with them to TRU, not necessarily their own...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

TRU Merry Hill have POTC sets and 3for2 offer on. I only could afford to buy one 'Captain's cabbin' set 4191 though. My wife says that I must tidy my room before I can have any more. :-(

By in United Kingdom,

Between TRU Southampton and TRU Poole I've picked up a Captain's Cabin, Isle De Muerta, Aqua De Vida, and London Escape (along with 4 Clone and 1 Mandalorian BPs). I never intended to but the POTC sets, but they're just so darn appealing (and on the 3for2 offer as well). Now, I need to put an extension on the house :l

By in United Kingdom,

Ah! I ment 'Cabin' (Note to self: Proof read.....) By the way, Sainsbury's have 25% off all toys atm.
