October really is a great month! Aside from Halloween, this is the second year that Toys R Us (TRU) is celebrating the fall season with Bricktober. During a routine visit to my local TRU, I was pleasantly surprised to find the store offering an exclusive Retro Minifigure Magnet with LEGO purchases over $20. Similar to last year with the exclusive Duplo bricks, each week of October (starting Sunday), TRU will have a different minifigure. In case you’re curious, the figures include:
- Week 1 (October 3-9): Imperial Soldier (1989)
- Week 2 (October 10-16): Wild West Officer (1996)
- Week 3 (October 17-23): Classic Town Fireman (1981)
- Week 4 (October 24-31): Black Falcon Knight (1984)
As of October 3, in addition to the exclusive minifigure magnets, most sets are 10% off, some older Town sets 30% off, and an additional 25% off clearance sets. Make sure you stop bye to take advantage of the free minifigure (with purchases over $20) and the special event sales. Classic Town will be sharing an update on the sales all month, as well as pictures of each of the exclusive minifigure magnets as they become available each week. Good luck finding them at a store near you!
