A couple of months ago, we reported that the LEGO Bricktober 2018 minifigures will now be made available at LEGO Stores following the demise of toy retail giant, Toys R Us. The availability of these highly-sought after collectible minifigures was confirmed by LEGO over through an email send to querying fans . Afterwards, LEGO was quite mum about the details, and it eventually turned out that book store retail king Barnes and Noble, will exclusively offer one of the LEGO Bricktober minfigures as a promotional gift the day after the release of the Fantastic Beasts sequel, Crimes of Grindelwald. This time around, it looks like LEGO is now staying true to its promise of offering one of the LEGO Bricktober 2018 minifigure sets as a LEGO Store Black Friday free exclusive.
If you recall, we also shared some prior rumor that the LEGO Ninjago Bricktober 2018 minifigure set (5005257) will be across LEGO Stores as part of LEGO’s Black Friday deals. Thanks to a report shared by The Brick Fan, we now have confirmation that is indeed the case. One of the readers of The Brick Fan’s blogsite shared the an image of the LEGO Store flyer, revealing what’s in store on LEGO Store Black Friday.
First off, we now have confirmation that the LEGO Ninjago Bricktober 2018 minifigure will now be available as a free, in-store LEGO Store Black Friday exclusive, with any single receipt purchase of any LEGO product worth $50 and above. This promotional is available only in-store so you might want to take the extra effort of locating the nearest LEGO Store nearest you.
One of my personal favorites and much-awaited LEGO GWP set for the holidays is the new LEGO Christmas Gift Box (40292). The set has already found its way in Europe and China, and its glad to hear that it will now be available in the US, from November 23 to 26, or until supplies last. Unlike the LEGO Ninjago Bricktober 2018 minifigures, the Christmas Gift Box will be available both in-store and online over at shop.LEGO.com. This cute, little holiday build will be available to all LEGO fans with a purchase of $99 or more.
Other than these LEGO Store Black Friday freebies, select LEGO sets will be on great discounts on Black Friday, with more LEGO sets placed on 30% discount from November 23 until 26. The deals continue until Cyber Monday where selected LEGO sets will still be offered at 20% discount.
The above mentioned LEGO Store flyer also tells us that the LEGO Creator Expert Detective’s Office (10246) will also be on a 20% discount from November 23 to 26. This modular set is now listed as out of stock over LEGO Shop@Home, so if you ever bump on this one at your local LEGO Store from Black Friday to Cyber Monday, then this might be the only time to get this set at a great discount. Alternatively, you may get the Detective’s Office (10246) roughly on its same regular price over at Amazon.
