With September just about ready to wind down, LEGO fans and collectors look forward to next month’s release period. We already know that many highly-anticipated sets are due to come out on the first of next month. But one other special LEGO product line that appears every October is Bricktober. These mini-sets and minifigure collections are a fixture of Toys R Us. Perhaps unfortunately, they’re only available as promotional items in Asian TRU stores. Anticipation for these new LEGO-TRU collectibles has been building since the first teaser from LEGO Japan. Now, Toys R Us stores like in Singapore have them officially listed on their websites.
As can be seen from the above Japanese teaser, fairytales are the theme for LEGO’s 2021 Bricktober sets. There will be four mini-sets, depicting scenes from iconic fairy stories, though only three have been revealed thus far. The sets are ultra-micro builds with perhaps a few one-piece microfigures. And the dioramas stand on brick-built hardcover books for that classical feel. We’ve listed the Bricktober 2021 sets known to be coming, with release dates.
- Hansel & Gretel (September 24-October 7)
- Jack and the Beanstalk (October 8-15)
- Little Red Riding Hood (October 16-October 24)
- Alice in Wonderland (Not yet listed on TRU SG, October 15-31)
