Free LEGO Lord of the Rings Project Case, Buildable Batman, Captain America Shields

LEGO Lord of the Rings Project Case


Toys'R'Us seems to be the place to be this week. First up they are offering a free LEGO Lord of the Rings "Project case" with any LEGO construction set or board game purchase of $60 or more. You may be tempted to try and pick up some LOTR sets to go along with the case, but be warned that their markup is atrociously high, even by their standards. Case in point: the MSRP on 9472 Attack on Weathertop is $59.99 (Amazon); TRU's asking price is $79.99, a full $20 more. If you're not interested in trying to do math and figure out what sets to purchase to get the case for free, you may be able to just buy it outright for $13.99.

They are also offering a free Aragorn poster with any LEGO LOTR purchase, but the markup doesn't make it worth it. A $20 markup for a $5 poster? I've seen better deals on fake bridges.

And finally, this Saturday June 16th from 2-4pm, Toys'R'Us stores are hosting a LEGO build event where you can build a Batman and/or a Captain America Superman shield and then take it home with you. Hopefully it will run much more smoothly this time around than it did for the Cars 2 build event. If anyone finds any pictures of what they might look like, please add it to the forum thread.

Update: forum member ufjason provided us with the following image:




I stand corrected: it's Batman and Superman, and not Captain America like I originally thought. I have no idea where I got Captain America from. Maybe I saw the word "shield" and switched out Superman's name since, you know, he doesn't use a shield. Why couldn't they use the "symbol" or "logo"? Anyways, thanks ufjason!

My weekly flier showed Batman and Superman mosaics, looking to be plate-built on a 16x16 baseplate.

Wish I could get a set, but the fine print says one per "child and supervising adult."

Ask and you shall receive.
eBay store, contact me if you'd like to perform trades from my inventory. I'm looking for original genosian fighers, second version a-wing fighters and tie bombers. I may be interested in other sets so let me know what you have.

I'm glad I saw this in time! My boys all really like making mosaics, so this should be a lot of fun.
It looks like they are standard 1x1 brick mosaics.

Great event, locally in the Metro Detroit area we had a great time. My 3 boys built these made out of 1x1 bricks on a 16x16 white plate. They look good for what they are and were free....can't beat free. Didn't see this advertised much and mostly only found out because of this site. Thanks for watching out for us.
