Upcoming LEGO Event and Polybag Deals at TRU

Screen Shot 2013-10-04 at 4.49.05 PM

There is another Create and Take building event at your local Toys’R’Us stores on Saturday October 19th. The ad says “local” so I assume it’s at most if not all TRU stores and not the select ones in IL and TX for the other Create and Take events in the past. The model this time is a DC Super Heroes Joker Mini Mech Bot. Not very exciting looking and by the looks of it, the purple plate that’s protruding from its waist looks like the Joker minifig is supposed to go there, but since it’s not pictured perhaps you’ll have to supply your own fig. But hey, that’s not such a bad thing because on the same day, if you buy at least $20 worth of LEGO Batman products, you’ll get a free 30166 Robin and Redbird Cycle, polybag set. This was previously only available at Toys’R’Us Canada stores with a similar promotion.

DC not your thing? Spend $20 on LEGO Marvel Super Heroes products and get an Iron Man polybag set for free! This is the same set that was previously only available as a promotion through LEGO Shop@Home and LEGO Brand Retail stores.

The markup over MSRP that Toys’R’Us charges, affectionately known as the TRU Tax, is insane. Miraculously enough, they currently have two sets on sale for below MSRP but no telling if that price will hold come October 19th. We’ll post an update the night before or the day of the event with suggestion on set you can buy so you’re not feeling completely ripped off trying to get the Redbird Cycle set.

Robin Polybag Promo @ TRU Canada

30166 Robin Polybag

The long unseen polybag listed as 30166 Robin and Redbird Cycle on Brickset has finally reared it’s ugly head, but only in Canada so far. I say ugly because you can only get it if you spend $30 on any Super Heroes sets. I prefer it when they will actually scan and I can just buy a couple as I did with Thor and the Bat-ski, but this time I had to resort to buying one of the Man of Steel sets I had no interest in and the 6865 Catcycle City Chase set to trade for the original Catwoman set I had already stashed away for my son. The lovely cashier was kind enough to give me an extra, but I can’t guarantee you’ll have the same results. It seems to helps if you’re extremely charming and good-looking though, in my personal experience.

Also, TRU Canada is having a Play Day tomorrow from 11am until 1pm, with the mini Jek-14 Stealth Fighter set that hit stateside for the May the 4th weekend along with a few other activities for the kids.
Good luck and have fun!
