Upcoming TRU In-Store Event Features a FREE LEGO Star Wars Stormtrooper Minifigure.

LEGO Star Wars fans may find this as a welcome treat. TRU in the US will run an in-store event this Saturday, November 19, with a FREE LEGO Star Wars Stormtrooper minifigure up for grabs for store visitors and patrons. Not much has been said in their promotional ad as you can see below, except that it is a sort of a ‘scavenger hunt’ running only for two hours from 12PM to 2PM. There also seems to be no qualifying purchase so expect TRU stores to be jam-packed on this date and time.

tru-starwars-minifigure-free

What we can also assume from this ad is that the minifigure to be given away is the LEGO Star Wars Stormtrooper minifigure as he is seen from the  LEGO Star Wars Rebels set from 2015 – the Imperial Troop Transport battlepack (75078).

75078-1

It is interesting to note that this set features two variants of the said Stormtrooper: the one with a more determined look on its face, and the other with a smiling, more welcoming print. If the TRU giveaway up for grabs will be the latter, then this is one unique minifig that you can only find together with the Imperial Troop Transport. Watch’s Stephen’s review of the Imperial Troop Transport battlepack from 2014 to have a better look at this version of the TRU LEGO Star Wars Stormtrooper giveaway.

In similar news, if you happen to fancy yourself for a new set this weekend, then it is nice to know that TRU is still running its LEGO polybag promotional for a minimum purchase of $30 or more of any LEGO Star Wars or Friends set. As we shared in our previous post, it seems that the LEGO Star Wars Rebel A-Wing Pilot (5004408) and LEGO Friends Bowling Alley (30399) polybags are still available.

5004408-1 30399-1

However, these are only available in-stores and are in limited quantities so expect that these polybags may no longer be available in some store branches. So if you have plans of visiting your local TRU store this Saturday for some new LEGO sets, be sure to be there before 12noon to get a chance to bring home some great minifigure finds.

LEGO Star Wars Rebel A-Wing Pilot Minifigure Promotional Is Back At Toys R Us + Other Great Freebies.

A few moments ago, we reported the reappearance of the exclusive LEGO Star Wars Rebel A-Wing Pilot (5004408) minifigure in the Philippines as a promotional in two of the country’s LEGO Certified Stores. Thankfully, LEGO fans in the US do not need to travel across the globe to grab hold to this collectable minifig. Starting October 27, Toys R Us across the US will be starting its holiday season discounts of as much as 20% on selected LEGO sets, while throwing in some pretty cool freebies as well – including the Rebel A-Wing Pilot minifig. BlackFridayads.net has recently uploaded what seems to be the entire TRU Toy Book 2016 ad that gives us a sneak peak on some of the LEGO promotionals that are worth the wait.

LEGO Star Wars Rebels A-Wing Pilot 5004408 Minifigure Reappears In The Philippines – and Much More!

News has been quite slow recently, but a trip to our local LEGO Certified Store here in the Philippines (one of the two in fact) was about to change all of that. OK, I know it may sound a bit exaggerated but the nerdist AFOL in me couldn’t pass this one out. If you remember a couple of months ago, we featured one of the most recent LEGO Star Wars minifigure promotional that is levelling up in terms of popularity. A quick browse over at Bricklink hints on the idea that the LEGO Star Wars Rebels A-Wing Pilot (5004408) polybag is slowly gaining a following, and the said minifig from the Star Wars Rebels theme is becoming a desired collectible.

5004408-1a-wing rebel pilot

So imagine my excitement when I saw this ad posted at the counter of our local LEGO Certified Store in Bonifacio Global City, Manila. The store’s staff was also kind enough to let me hold and snap a photo of the actual Star Wars Rebels A-Wing Pilot polybag. Pardon me for the poor image, it seems that my phone’s camera doesn’t stand a chance against the warm glow of the LEGO Store.

img_20161015_103437 img_20161015_103452img_20161015_102651

The good thing is that the store’s Facebook page has posted the complete promotional regarding this. Here’s a better copy.

ph_lego-star-wars-rebels-a-wing-pilot-minifig

As mentioned in the store’s ad, the exclusive LEGO Star Wars Rebels A-Wing Pilot (5004408) polybag comes free for every minimum, single receipt purchase of Php 3,499 (roughy equivalent to $70) of any LEGO products. You may have noticed the slightly higher price point as compared to last June’s LEGO Brand Stores promotional in the US that ran only for two days from June 4 to 5. However, if you noticed in the ad, it mentions TWO free minifigs per customer for the said qualifying purchase, PLUS the fact that the Star Wars Rebel A-Wing Pilot promotional in the Philippines runs on a longer period which is roughly two weeks until supplies last. I’ve confirmed this with the store’s staff, and the promo is perfectly legit. It is a freebie that is too tempting to pass and I have until the end of the month to cross my fingers.

 

Just a side note: it was also a great day visiting the LEGO Store in BGC since we’re just in time for their LEGO Mosaic Building Workshop, where kids ages 7 to 14 were taught on how to come up with their own brick-built mosaics of the Caped Crusader’s logo. I have to be honest, I never thought LEGO mosaic building can be a very daunting task! It seems like a walk in the park when Jason did his Deadpool, Bane, and Mickey Mouse Tsum Tsum mosaics out of LEGO bricks, but it was absolutely fun nevertheless.

img_20161015_101614 img_20161015_101948 img_20161015_102011 img_20161015_101630

It was also a perfect time to visit the store because other than the A-Wing Pilot minifig, they’re also having a make-and-take-home promotional were children ages 4-14 can have a FREE LEGO Creator Tiger (30285) that comes with any LEGO purchase. They’re also having the usual Monthly Mini Build promotional, and for the month of October they’re giving  away for FREE a LEGO Creator School Bus (40216). Unlike in LEGO Brand Stores in the US and other parts of Europe where you need to pre-register using your LEGO ID, the LEGO Certified Stores both in BGC and Alabang Town Center in the Philippines does not require any preregistration as you can see from their ad below.

img_20161015_102624 30285-1 40216-1lego-bgc-store-mmb-school-bus-40216 img_20161015_102613

The store is also pretty much updated with regards to the most recent releases such as the LEGO Star Wars Rogue One sets, LEGO City Volcano Explorers, LEGO Mixels Series 9, and the Disney and Series 16 Collectible Minifigures. I’m proud to say that after an hour of feeling my way through countless blind bags, I finally landed on my much-awaited LEGO Disney Stitch minifig! They also have on display several hard-to-find LEGO Creator sets such as the Fairground Mixer (10244), Brick Bank (10251), and the Detective’s Office (10246). There’s also a couple of seasonal themed sets available just in time for Halloween and Christmas, such as the Trick or Treat Halloween Set (40122),  Halloween Bat (40090), Santa’s Visit (40125), and Snowman (40093).

  img_20161015_103557 img_20161015_103705

img_20161016_070829
He finally landed on my desk – welcome home Stitch!

So if you happen to be in the Philippines, or you and the family is planning to visit the country for a vacation, especially that the holiday season is just around the corner be sure to check out our very own LEGO Certified Stores in BGC and ATC. Just head over to their Facebook page for more info, or simply pay a visit to the store and approach  their friendly and accommodating store staff.

Special shout out and thanks to Keno and Brian for patiently bearing with my questions and nerdy excitement.

LEGO Batman Movie, Batman in the Phantom Zone Polybag 30522 Spotted In The Wild!

The New York Comic Con may well be over, but for devoted fans who witnessed the reveals at LEGO’s Booth #1336, the thrill of seeing three new sets around the LEGO Batman Movie is kind of hard to shake off . As if these sets are not enough to get you hooked up with the film, Michael Frederick of Promobricks shares what seems to be a polybag promotional for The LEGO Batman Movie with the Batman in the Phantom Zone (30522). According to the report, the said polybag was spotted in the wild from a seller in US classified column. Though there were no details shared regarding the pricing, piece count and availability of the said promotional, these photos seem to be legit as you can see below.

*********UPDATE: It seems that the reveal of the Batman in the Phantom Zone polybag is a bit too early. LEGO has requested us to remove these images.********* 

As you can see from the bag, the 30522 comes with a Batman minifigure sporting a new utility belt. We can’t exactly figure out what the accompanying build actually is but it surely gives an interesting twist on how the film’s plot will turn out in the Phantom Zone. The build itself is kind of menacing to our minifig Caped Crusader, with weapon-like protrusions covering its body. The good thing is that according to Promobricks, they have received information that this could just be the start of LEGO releasing similar promotionals later in the future. If this is just the beginning, then we’re sure excited to see what the next sets or polybags will be. The LEGO Batman Movie is all set to fly in to theatres on February 8, 2017.

Here’s A Look At The Recently Updated LEGO Dimensions Guide.

LEGO has just released an updated infographic of their LEGO Dimensions expansion sets, including the more recent Waves 6 and 7. Delivering on its promise of a bigger and better game play experience, LEGO has added a total of 16 titles and licenses under its flagship toys-to-life theme. If the recent upgrade on the cooperative and multiplayer Battle Arena game mode and Story Packs expansions are not enough to get you hooked up, I guess the minifigure line that comes with them will undoubtedly make any minifig enthusiast a believer. LEGO even took the extra mile of introducing new moulds for their newest minifigure lines such as that of Jake and Lumpy Space Princess in the Adventure Time Team Pack (71246), Sonic the Hedgehog Level Pack (71244), Gremlins Team Pack (71256), and ET the Extraterrestrial Fun Pack (71258).

Here’s LEGO’s infographic in case you want to know which LEGO Dimensions figure goes with what wave, and what kind of pack are they included in to.

lego-dimensions-guide-updated

Wave 6 is currently available, with Wave 7 scheduled to be released this November.  If you noticed, The LEGO Batman Story Pack (71264), The LEGO Batman Story Fun Pack (71344), and the Knight Rider Fun Pack (71286) are yet to be included in this chart. We assume that these sets comprise the first half of LEGO Dimensions Wave 8 set to be released to the general public on February next year. We also had a sneak peak of the LEGO Dimensions Sloth minifigure from the Goonies last week though it is quite unsure if he will be included in Wave 8. Additionally, we are still waiting for the reveal of the rest of Series 2 LEGO Dimensions characters which include the Powerpuff Girls, Teen Titans GO! and Beetlejuice.

LEGO Dimensions Sloth Minifigure Makes His Debut!

A couple of hours ago, LEGO Dimensions’ official Twitter page gave us a glimpse of how the Goonies iconic character looks like in his actual minifigure form. We already have an early glimpse on how Sloth looks like during this year’s E3 LEGO Dimension presentation. Here’s the video in case you missed it and watch out for him at around the 0:46 mark.

We do not have any further official images or description of Sloth as of now, but LEGO Dimensions’ Twitter post below is enough to keep us on our toes and be excited about how the next wave of LEGO Dimensions will take shape. Here’s the image that they shared.

ctz15jkwaaaeade

For one, Sloth will enter the LEGO Dimensions portal in his own Level Pack as revealed by Travellers Tales’ Head of Design Arthur Parsons.

As you may have noticed, Sloth is wearing a Superman tank top reminiscent of what the character looks like during a particular scene in the film. The Sloth minifigure head piece is a separate element that re-creates the elongated form of his head with a small patch of hair on top. Take a look at the photos below.

chunk-and-sloth sloth-superman

For those of you who were wondering who the Sloth and Goonies, they are characters based on the 1985 hit comedy film composed of a ragtag team of juvenile adventurers who call themselves the Goonies. The film is centered on the Goonies’ quest to find the pirate’s treasure that will save their neighborhood from the impending construction of a golf course. In doing so, they get to meet a bunch of interesting characters, including the dysfunctional Fratelli family and their gargantuan member, Lotney ‘Sloth’ Fratelli. Though frighteningly disfigured and somehow slow on the uptake, the Goonies soon realized that the Sloth is a very valuable help and loyal friend. Watch the video below of some of the moments of the Sloth as he is seen in the Goonies 1985 film. Please mind some of the language spoken by the characters.

Currently, we have a total of 16 new IPs and licenses added to the roster of LEGO Dimensions, with characters from the titles like Beetlejuice, the Powerpuff Girls, and Teen Titans GO! still waiting to be revealed.

Toys R Us Bricktober Store Calendar Found In The Wild – Confirms TRU’s Exclusive Minifigure Collection Pack.

A few days ago, we reported on what seems to be TRU’s latest collection of limited edition, LEGO minifigures in celebration of its annual Bricktober store event. The said minifigure collection consists of four packs namely that of Warriors,  Athletes, Cops & Robbers, and Musicians minifigs.

Just recently, we found what seems to be a legit copy of TRU’s Bricktober 2016 October Calendar. The said calendar somehow confirms the availability of this latest LEGO promotional and TRU exclusive in the US. Check out our Instragram post below.

Similarly, we have a complete view of the calendar shared by Brick Vibe over their Facebook account.

TRU Bricktober CalendarAs you may have noticed, TRU’s Bricktober Calendar is highly similar to that of LEGO’s monthly store calendar. The way we see it from the above photo, the first week of October will see the release of the Musicians Minifigure Collection Pack, followed by Warrior Minifigure Collection Pack on the second week, the Athletes Minifigure Collection Pack on the third, and the Cops and Robbers Minifigure Collection Pack on the fourth week.

The TRU exclusive LEGO Minifigure Collection Packs will be given away for free for every single receipt purchase of any LEGO products worth $50 and more. Noticeably, the TRU Bricktober calendar also mentions of a FREE LEGO Star Wars gift for $30 worth of purchases of any LEGO Star Wars merchandise. The following dates are also marked on TRU’s calendar:

September 27 – LEGO Dimensions Year 2 series will be available.

September 30 – LEGO Star Wars Rogue One sets will be available at the stroke of midnight, including LEGO Ideas Caterham and LEGO Mixels Series 9.

The TRU LEGO Minifigure Collection Pack is expected to be available until supply lasts so if you’re planning to expand your LEGO collection, TRU is probably the best place to be next month.

 

Thanks to Brick Vibe for the additional info.
