Though they have appeared earlier in some parts of the globe a few weeks ago, it seems that several Toys R Us stores in the US have already begun this year’s LEGO Bricktober promotions. With four, undoubtedly impressive sets to collect throughout the month of October, this year’s LEGO TRU Bricktober Minifigures includes a colorful collection of minifigures hailing from the LEGO Batman Movie, Ninjago, City Jungle Exploration, and Collectible Minifigures series.
As mentioned by The Brick Fan, some Toys R Us branches in the US have already started the said promotions. These exclusive minifigs are given for free, for every minimum single-receipt purchase of LEGO products worth $50 and above. Different TRU stores in various geographical regions have observed slightly different release dates throughout their Bricktober promotional, and in the US the following are the scheduled release dates to be followed.
October 1 to 7 – LEGO Ninjago Masters of Spinjitzu (5004938)
October 8 to 14 – LEGO Batman Movie (5004939)
October 15 to 21 – LEGO City Jungle Exploration (5004940)
October 22 to 28 – LEGO Collectible Minifigures (5004941)
It seems that the in-store announcements and activities came in first, and we should expect some updates from TRU’s official website any time soon. Similarly, Toys R Us has lined up a pretty interesting series of Bricktober weekend in-store events, with a handful of freebies up for grabs. Check TRU’s website for more details.
