Sunday, October 24, starts Week 4 of Bricktober with the exclusive Black Falcon minifigure. This minifigure is one of my personal favorites as the Black Falcons were certainly a vintage Classic Castle faction. I would guess that this may be a “fan favorite” for retro minifig collectors. In addition to the retro minifig, TRU is also offering 25% off selected Star Wars sets. This concludes Bricktober 2010 coverage. Hope you were able to “snag a few”!
Classic Town fans will especially appreciate Week 3 of Bricktober 2010. Right out of 1981 bearing the striking black and yellow-buttoned jacket, the Fire Chief is certainly a vintage minifig. Toys R Us (TRU) is also offering a buy one, get 50% off a second set on most LEGO. This certainly helps to alleviate some of the extra mark-up on most TRU LEGO.
Week #2 of Bricktober has officially began at Toys R Us (TRU) stores in the U.S.! This week, TRU is offering my personal favorite of the retro collection of minifigures, this one being the Cavalry Colonel from the 1996 LEGO Wild West theme. In addition to the exclusive magnet minifig, TRU is also giving away Trick-Or-Treat bags, called LEGO Halloween Buckets for LEGO purchases $20 or more. The plastic “buckets” come in three different colors; black, yellow, and orange. Michael Huffman, Mhuffman on FlickR, shares an image of the Halloween bags if you are interested.
Happy Halloween Hunting until next week!
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!
