Toys R Us Update: 2011 Sets

Posted by ,

There's good news and bad news on the Toys R Us front.

THE GOOD NEWS: The Toys R Us website is now listing as "In Stock" several new City, Kingdoms, and Alien Conquest sets. This is great timing as we still have 3 days left on the current Buy One, Get One 50% Off sale and each of these themes is eligible. Additionally, the initial 7 Pirates of the Caribbean sets are also still available.

THE BAD NEWS: Unfortunately, the Alien Conquest Mothership (7065), City of Atlantis (7985), City Marina (4644), and Queen Anne's Revenge (4195) are still not available. Additionally, Toys R Us has just added their markup to all of the initial Pirates of the Caribbean sets. :o(

Thanks to Brickset members rotaylo and robsuckylife as well as Forum members typo and mkoesel for the news.

I didn't see Earth Defence HQ(7066) or UFO abduction (7052).

Why does everybody say that they can't find Queen Anne's Revenge? My Local TRU has No POTC sets except for the Queen Anne's Revenge. But I might try to get some Alien Conquest and some Kingdoms sets. When will the Star wars sets come on the shelves?

@ The Reviewer: Not till Late July or so.

i went to TRu this morning to pick up a few new sets. Was pretty disappointed that they already markup up the POTC sets, and i bought only 2 ( Captains Cabin and the Fountain of Youth). They didnt have any of the new kingdoms or city sets, but did have the new Atlantis set that wasnt the City of Atlantis which is what i really wanted. I'm going to the newly reopened Orlando lego store this weekend and hope they have all the new themes and sets in stock.....Oh by the way Queen Annes Revenge is now 131.99. :/

Queen Anne, $131.99!! That's about as ridiculous as the Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle at $149.99...

Gravatar
By in United States,

@vpustote - At only 10% for the Queen Anne, that's pretty normal. Hogwarts or the SW battlepacks are a whole different story, though.

Gravatar

It definitely will NOT let you get the discount on more than one item!

Gravatar
By in United States,

So glad I got mine before the markup!!! Crazy!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

it will if you call TRU and talk to them.
I saved 25$ by asking

Gravatar
By in United States,

oh well.. with price hike like that, I better wait for the buy 2 get 1 free discount. Anyone know when that usually takes place?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Not impressed with the POTC markup, but it really is almost expected. I was able to call TRU.com to order an additional set and they applied the discount to multiple items after I asked them to. Since they had the Fire Brigade in stock I picked up two of those as well as two dragon prison sets.

I see LEGO is breaking out a bunch of new pieces this year, in virtually all themes.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Finally! I have been waiting for the POTC sets for a while now. My wife gave me 50$ to spend on LEGO sets for me and my son, I think I know what I'll be getting! ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Is that your allowance? ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Forget PoTC, when do the new Harry Potter sets come out? I'm saving up so I can buy them all in one go, Hopefully not before the end of May though, correct?

Gravatar
By in United States,

There are some Grand Emporiums currently in stock.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I had just gone to my TRU Wednesday and they had no new sets except for the S4 Minifigs.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The Kingdoms sets have a pretty good price (no TRU mark-up). I might take advantage of that since they're all decently priced as is for the amount of pieces (except the arriage one).

Gravatar
By in United States,

my toys r us had all the poc sets! I got four of them and 50% of two of them! I also love the new packaging they are using for the box and instructions and how it may look that they are printing the designs on the peaces againg instead of stickers. They have alot of elaborate pieces!

Does Anybody know when the New City and Alien Conquest sets are coming to TRU Canada.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Just today I was able to finally find the potc sets. They were marked up and there were no kingdoms or ac sets either. Is tru waiting until after their sale to set out the rest of the sets?

Gravatar
By in United States,

My TRU has the Queen Annes Revenge...

Gravatar
By in United States,

I went to TRU earlier today and saw the '4642-1: Fishing Boat' and the '3367-1: Space Shuttle' sets there, but no new Kingdoms or Alien Conquest yet. I was going to get the Fishing Boat (I just got the Space Shuttle yesterday) when I saw that the '8129-1: AT-AT Walker' and the '8089-1: Clone Turbo Tank' sets at 33% off making the AT-AT $80.39 and the Turbo Tank $87.09 so I bought the AT-AT (I already own the Turbo Tank). Hopefully the rest of the new sets arrive at my TRU Sunday so I can use this deal on Harbor and Alien Conquest.

I was just able to place an order on the phone via TRU for 14 LEGO sets (POTC, Alien Conquest & Kingdoms) at 25% off plus free shipping. 25% is essentially the same as Buy One Get One Half Off. The order desk did confirm that they could not just give me the usual sale, but could instead give me a blanket 25% off my entire order which turns out to be a cheaper deal. Since I am located in Oregon, I also did not have to pay sales tax.

I here all this talk about the new sets coming to USA and the UK but does anybody have info about the new CITY and Alien Conquest coming too TRU Canada or any other Canadian Stores soon. I dont think there`s info on it but If you know could you let me know.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

^try lego.com on may 10 or earlier, as for tru they haven't had anything out early for a while, but try them next week.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I got shot down twice trying to get TRU to place a phone order and get some kind of deal. I was going to drop over 120 and get all the new sets which haven't been marked up but are not in stock here at my one and only store which is over 68 miles away.
I finally broke down and ordered the $40 AC set, new $40 Kingdoms set, and some other $40 set that I will return and a small set to bump me over to get free shipping. Definately wasn't going to pay $15 for shipping 2 sets.
I also like that the shoprunner offer doesn't cover any of the new sets either.
I can have no problem in the store, when they are stocked, but going to TRU.com, why do they make it so difficult to take my cash :P

Gravatar
By in United States,

unfortunatly, today i managed to go to my local huntington beach tru, and it was very very very crowded, i was hoping to get the new kingdoms set 6918 with the new CHICKEN, and get the small 4.99 red boat on sale for 50% off, but anyways unfortunatly it was not worth the 5 mile drive :/ theres always hope for next weekend :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

all they had was the POTC sets, not captains cabin, but all the others, and the new fishing boat

Gravatar
By in United States,

Just bought two death stars from TRU.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Great coupon for Easter, but as usual the high end Harry Potter set (Diagon Alley) is listed as "out of stock for shipping")... as is the Kingdoms Village Raid, for that matter.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Both of those were in stock at one time though. I was up at 12am EST last night and saw that the death star, and diagon alley were both available and the code worked. I figured I'd sleep on whether or not to make any purchases and this morning at 6am both were completely out of stock. So unfortunately, I will not be getting anything :(

In other news, the alien conquest earth defense set is listed, but not in stock. http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=11486134&prodFindSrc=search

Interesting that the village raid was not available until today so that it could not be bought under the 50% sale yesterday (during the sale, I kept looking for that set since it was one I really wanted).

Gravatar
By in United States,

They have the Creator Lighthouse on there as well!

Gravatar
By in United States,

TRU.com has the Alien Conquest Earth Defense HQ set on its website. It is listed as available in stores.

Gravatar
By in United States,

the windmill is now listed as not in stock :(

Gravatar
By in United States,

Isn't it strange whenever TRU has a "Sale" on items, let's say for instance their last advertised, buy one get one 50% off. Suddenly, what was in full stock hours, even minutes before the pending sale, oh, look now they are out of stock. Somehow I doubt very much it is a coincidence. Sounds alot like bait and switch.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Does anyone know when the new Harry Potter sets are coming out? I don't really care about the PotC or Alien Conquest, becasue I'm saving up for SW and HP, but I'd like to know when those come out, or is anyone going to answer me like they didn't last time I asked

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm looking forward to the kingdom sets. Already got the only POTC set I want. So as soon as the kingdom sets hit the stores let me know!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I got my speedboat, fishing boat, alien tri-pod, alien defender and blacksmith shop yesterday.

TRi-pod is great.....it has a pod to carry a human victim, and a alien you can put on a minifigures head, like a brain sucker.

The blacksmith workshop is sweet.

By in Canada,

If anybody goes to the TRU in Tondawanda near the Boulavard Mall could you tell me if they have any City or Alien Conquest sets in stock or have even got them at all, I Live far away(Canada) and want to make 1 special trip down there to pick up the Fishing Boat, Speed Boat and UFO Abduction, if these three sets are there could you let me know. Thanks
