The LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Book (21315) is a retired set now. However its spirit lives on, sort of, in the 2021 Bricktober sets exclusive to Toys R Us. Well, make that the TRU stores in the Asia-Pacific region anyways. The three fairytales depicted in the original Ideas set became three separate micro-builds atop LEGO books. This year’s Bricktober series even has a fourth set with all-new story. We were able to get nice images of three of the Bricktobers on TRU Singapore’s website. The fourth set however has gone un-depicted, until images of it popped up on social media.
Shanghai-based LEGO fan dylanchow just shared new images of the LEGO Bricktober sets on Instagram. Among them is the fourth set that wasn’t listed yet on Toys R Us Singapore when we checked. Said set refers to “Alice in Wonderland” and depicts the table in the Mad Hatter’s tea party.
Given this Bricktober set’s lack of presence in a TRU website, there’s a possibility that it might become available with another retailer. Supposedly this Alice Bricktober set comes out October 15 to 31. Therefore, as that date approaches next month we may have concrete details on the set’s availability.
Each LEGO Bricktober 2021 set showcases a fairytale diorama assembled atop a brick-built book. In addition to building instructions they will also have fold-up storybooks with abridged versions of the stories. The Bricktobers come free with every purchase of LEGO sets $69 and up on TRU stores and online. There is still no word on where and how the series will be available outside Asia.
