Bricktober is Here

Posted by ,
Earth Defense HQ

It's that time again at Toys R Us! Valid Sunday 10/2 thru Saturday 10/8, TRU is putting 14 LEGO construction sets along with 4 LEGO board games on sale for 30% Off the normal TRU price. The sets are as follows: Space Shuttle, Space Center, Powerboat Transporter, Fishing Boat, City of Atlantis, Deep Sea Raider, Earth Defense HQ, AC Mothership, Mill Village Raid, King's Carriage Ambush, Millennium Falcon, Podracers, Skull Truck, and Fire Temple.

Additionally, you receive the exclusive Week 1 Bricktober minifigure magnet (White Ninja) with a qualifying $20 purchase. Lastly, this Week's flyer has a coupon that gets you a $10 "Special" Giftcard if you spend $75 or more. This "Special" Giftcard activates 6 hours later and then expires on 10/29/11.

Note: It is probably worth noting that, unlike last year, the Minifigures will be glued on each of the 4 magnets this Bricktober.

Note 2: Keep an eye on Amazon as they will likely match most if not all of these prices as has been their way recently.

Note 3: It appears that all other sets are 10% Off the normal TRU price this week.

Note 4: There appears to be yet another Brickober promotion, this one running throughout the month. For Rewards R Us members, you'll earn $5 in "LEGO Dollars" with your total LEGO purchase of $100+ or $10 in "LEGO Dollars" with your total LEGO purchase of $150+. These ceritificates will be mailed by TRU and via USPS sometime between 8 and 12 weeks after purchase. It's unclear to me, however, if these are in anyway different than normal "Rewards Bucks" (which are just as slow to arrive) or if the promotion is cumulative or per purchase. Additionally, the limit is one $5 or $10 certificate per member.

Too bad the minifigs are glued; I went out of my way last year to get all of the Bricktober minifigs, but I won't be getting any that are glued. At least I'll save some money!

What is the $10 code? I can't seem to find it in their flyers on TRU.com

^ It's actually a $10 gift card and is thus valid In-Store only. I've corrected the writeup above.

All other LEGO sets seem to be 10% off as well, including Death Star (in stock), Maersk Train, and the modular buildings. Enjoy!

Sure enough - the discounts seem to have popped up on Amazon. Mill Village Raid's discount did anyway.

Yay! Can't wait to get the figs. They are glued.

The Cool Cruiser 5767 is $5 off. $35 seems like a good price. I wonder if it will still be on sale next week or so?

Are you freaking kidding me?! What's up with glued minifigures?! No one gets them!

Darn. Last year, I went out of my way to pick up some of the Bricktober Minifigs because I unfortunately missed out on two of the Vintage Minifigure Collections. I was eager to get this year's Forestman and LEGOLAND Knight, but now that I know that they are glued... my enthusiasm has waned. How disappointing.

TRU now has the Maersk Sealand train.... for... are you ready for this? $129.99 USD... un-flipping-believable.. BUT there still is the 10% off so it is only 116.99 and in stock now!

@Note 3 - does that apply in Canada too?

@Thomson & Thompson- I dont think so, it says shopping news(US), and the Toys R Us website for canada doesnt seem to show it, so Im thinking no, I wish though, our prices are way to high here! Thats why I dont shop in Canada, just cross the border and head to TRU, Wal-mart, or target at the least to get the best deals. Im probably gonna get the Space Center and a couple other City sets for my layout, great deals! :D

Do you need an actual flyer or a print out of the $10 coupon? Or do you automatically receive a gift card with a $75 or higher purchase?

^ You need the coupon to get the "special" (i.e. flimsy) giftcard.

Where is the flyer? is it somewhere online? Thanks.

So the minifig legs are glued to the magnets, but are the torsos, heads, headgear, etc also glued to each other? If not, then I'll probably go for the classic knight and then just take the torso, head, and helmet off the legs, and give him non-glued legs. But if everything is glued together, then I won't even be considering it.

EDIT: Whoops, probably should have done some research before posting this. A quick Google search shows that the torsos, legs, and magnets are all glued together. Darn. So much for that...

EDIT 2: And a few more Google searches later it seems that it may actually be possible to remove the glue (actually a solvent)! :D http://thebrickblogger.com/2011/01/lego-glued-magnet-removal/
