It’s nice of LEGO to sometimes give collectors who might have missed a promotional product or two in the past another chance (or two) to pick those uncommon items up. Their latest promotional comeback involves their previous feature-length CG-animated adventure The LEGO Ninjago Movie, which premiered last September.
For the past years, TRU has celebrated the month of October with a series of exclusive, limited edition minifigures to mark what has been dubbed as TRU’s Bricktober sales. 2016 saw four LEGO minifigure sets released by TRU per week for the whole month of October consisting of a Musicians (Week 1), Warrior (Week 2), Athletes (Week 3), and Cops and Robbers (Week 4) packs. These minifigures packs were given for free for a minimum purchase of any LEGO products worth $50 and above at all participating Toys R Us in the US and some parts of the globe.
With the dust now settling from the excitement surrounding the sets that LEGO has unveiled during this year’s New York Toy Fair, let’s now get a closer look at each of these starting with the next line of LEGO’s collectible minifigures (CMF). The LEGO CMF Series 17 (71018) of the LEGO CMF has received plenty of mixed reactions from the LEGO fan community, but for every minifig completionist by heart, this is one series that you don’t want to miss.
We’re still a couple of hours away before this year’s Force Friday is officially over, yet it seems that it’s a wrap up already for some of LEGO’s promotional offers. After the announcement of the LEGO Star Wars Darth Revan minifigure promotional, most of us were excited, with raised hopes of having this exclusive minifig which was last offered back in 2014. We reported earlier that this hard-to-find minifig will be available for FREE for any purchase of LEGO Star Wars product. The catch? It is only offered for a day, which is, as we know, during Force Friday.
We’re a few hours away from the launch of this year’s Star Wars Force Friday, and The LEGO Group has definitely something in store for all the Star Wars faithful. Let’s take a look at some exclusives that LEGO has cued in for release tomorrow.
