Toys R Us in the United States are no more, but this recent find by Brickset member RonnyNhas may tug a heartstring or two among LEGO fans who grew up with the brick and mortar store. As it turned out, LEGO still has TRU in mind when a recent discovery of a LEGO BrickHeadz Geoffrey (40316) set was stumbled upon via LEGO’s servers in the public domain, or more specifically, the building instructions to create the famed TRU mascot in LEGO BrickHeadz style.
From the looks of the parts inventory, it seems that this LEGO BrickHeadz Geoffrey (40316) set does not contain any special parts or elements except for a few unique printed bricks showing the recognizable star patterns on Geoffrey. Check out the parts inventory below and see if you have the necessary parts to build our most favorite giraffe. You may also download the set’s building instructions while it is still up at LEGO’s public servers.
Now it is possible that LEGO may have actually intended to release a LEGO BrickHeadz Geoffrey (40316) set, and everything was already in place for the grand reveal. However, due to the eventual, heart-breaking closure of all TRU stores in the US, this particular BrickHeadz may have been placed on hold. It could also mean that since there are still other TRU stores in countries outside of the US, then it is likely that we may still see this set as a local promotional in their respective countries.
So what do you think about this LEGO BrickHeadz Geoffrey (40316) set that we never had? Do you think this will really happen? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
