2018 polybags available in Tesco

Posted by ,

It's unusual for regular retailers to stock polybags in the UK so it makes a welcome change to see that five of the latest releases are currently available in branches of Tesco. They are:

You'll find them in a yellow box containing an assortment, but they probably won't last long, or be restocked. They are a little steep at £4 but hardcore polybag collectors won't baulk at that price.

Expect a review of the cute doggy in the next few days.

Thanks to spicypig and others for the news.

I guess this change in sales behaviour is an indication of the end of freebie poly bags with newspapers. Maybe one offs, but I doubt we will see promos like we used to lasting 9 days.

I noticed that my local Sainsburys has some of 30349 available and i thought that was odd.

Toys R us and the Entertainer have had some decent polybags over the years so it's nice that lego are branching out to supermarkets,
I might get the road worker and sons of garmadon cycle,
I hope the royal talon fighter polybag and bat shooter appear in shops one day here in the UK..

I agree they're definitely overpriced, but I couldn't resist picking up a couple of 30357's purely for the excellent IMO, and currently fairly rare, printed tile which will surely be useful for future MOCs.

Anyone know if these are in all sizes of Tesco (excl Express I guess). Not sure which store near me to prioritise!!

A few years ago they sold polybags in WH Smith where the case had "series 1" on the outer box. Never saw a series 2 in the UK but similar styled boxes kept being released here in Belgium, just without the 'series x' - I guess these few will turn up here in due course.

When I saw road worker, I was thinking of something *totally* different.....

Does anyone know whether the daily mail or the star are doing the lego promotion this year the last one was quite good I got 3 day of polybags and you could pick the toy up at Asda too.

In Poland Tesco had Polybags since 2016!

£4 is actually quite good for these. I interpret at least the city ones as equivalent to the £5 price bracket.

Yep, the three Tesco stores I visited last week filled the shelves with four boxes of these (inferior Chinese made minifigs?) last week - while vastly reducing all other sets and even putting cheap plastic tat in their place. Shame.

Legoavenger14: lego cut ties with the daily mail back in 2016 as they didn't want to be associated with it anymore. Since then the only two giveaways in UK I think have been one in the Times for Lego Batman and the other was in the I newspaper for Ninjago. Even if was only a keychain.

I am from denmark, and our local marked, had the traffic patrol, Road sign worker, and the pug. :-P

I bought the last 2, have not build them yet, but i just loved them :-P
+ i have some "road working" lego set now witch would make a great little area in my creator village.

I ended up at an Extra. 2 boxes both with a reasonable mix of bags remaining.

Not been to a Tesco for ages but surprised that there wasn't much of a selection of Lego on the shelves Less choice than in a couple of local Sainsbury's which iare much smaller stores

Bought all 5 tonight. Impressed with them all. £4 seemed a little steep but well worth it now I've built them all. Have to say not a lot of each left in my local Tesco so I would get in quick if you want them.

Given that TRU sell polybags for a fiver, I have no problem with a £4 RRP!

I picked up two road workers at Walmart!

By in United Kingdom,

Just got 2 of the road worker in Tesco in Oban, Scotland. Normally not very good for lego. Looked like all 5 polybags in stock.

Is the picture of the "cute pug" on it's polybag seriously lifting it's leg at the fire hydrant? Lol

Man, this did this last year in Australia. The grocery chain Woolworths had them. Which is great, because there's a Woolworths literally two streets away from my house.

But they only ever show up *after* I've already tracked down the polybags I want from Bricklink, darn it. Two years in a row now.

Huh, is it only larger stores that have them? I work practically next door to a medium size Tesco and I have lapped it twice looking for them with no success...

I got a pug. Or rather a fellow member of my afol lug got one for me. Pug caused much excitement at our meetup yesterday - mostly because his official name is 'cute' pug. Then again all pugs are cute!! Yes, he is having a wee in the picture!!
