    The April 2018 LEGO Brand Retail Store calendar is now out. From April 1-15, you can get a free exclusive LEGO Minifigure Factory set with purchases of $75 or more. From April 13 to May 3, you can get a free LEGO Darth Vader Pod. Aside from these promotions, there aren’t too many other worthy items of mention.

    They do have a VIP Monthly Mini Model Frog build that we mentioned earlier. There is however a LEGO Life Meeting on April 21 and 28 where you can build the Monthly Mini Model Frog build and participate in other creative activities. You can check the full LEGO Store Calendar here.

    From March 16-30, LEGO Brand Stores and LEGO Shop at Home (US | Canada | UK) will be offering Double VIP points. They work out to be about 10% back in rewards value. This time, the promotion excludes 75192 Millennium Falcon. With that said, there’s still lots of great sets to choose from especially the LEGO exclusives and hard to find sets such as 21313 Ship in a Bottle. As mentioned earlier, from March 16-31, you can also get a free LEGO Easter Bunny Hut when you spend $35/£35 or more.

    This is an unadvertised promo as it was not mentioned on the calendar. Thanks to forum member scatmanjack for the tip.

    This week from March 16-22, Toys R Us Canada is offering 20% off ALL LEGO Star Wars and Ninjago building sets. In addition, they are also offering 20% off ALL LEGO Minecraft and Creator building sets. Excludes prices ending in 0.94 (most likely the online LEGO exclusives/hard to find sets) and clearances. This is a great sale on LEGO Star Wars as they don’t get discounted too often in Canada. Its also a good time to pick up some of the newer sets.

    Let’s help Toys R Us Canada so that they continue to stay in operations. Hopefully, they don’t have to shut down their stores like what is happening in the United Kingdom and the United States. Toys R Us was one of our favourite stores to go to when we were a kid. )’:

    For Canadians, Toys R Us stores will continue to remain open for business. They have 82 stores across Canada from Nanaimo, British Columbia all the way to Fredericton, New Brunswick. The Toys R Us Canadian business portfolio is profitable and can continue to operate without disruption. The parent company of Toys R Us in America is currently looking for someone to acquire the Canadian Toys R Us Canada portfolio. The Toys R Us operations in America will be closing down. All 740 stores will be liquidated. (via TheStar)

    We visited a suburb Toys R Us store and was really sad that there weren’t many people in there. There was only one cashier and only about 10 customers. Its a huge store for only a few people. We need to fill these stores with more kids, teens and adults. ) :

    LEGO 21314 Legacy Tron (LEGO Ideas)

    The LEGO Facebook page has revealed the Disney LEGO 21314 Legacy Tron set. This is a fan designed set through LEGO Ideas I believe. It is expected to be released sometime in April 2018. ( :

    There were some rumors circulating yesterday regarding Toys R Us USA having plans to completely shut down. The UK operations was shutting down for sure. However, it was not 100% confirmed yet so we did not post about it. It looks like now that it is true as confirmed by USAToday. Toys R Us USA has filed for liquidation after failing to find a deal to solve their debt that is in the billions. They have their biggest operations in the USA with UK probably in 2nd place. Yikes!

    Unfortunately, that also means about 30 000 jobs would be lost. All 735 Toys R Us USA stores will start their closure. Last year’s Christmas sale was a bust for Toys R Us. Q4 is one of their most crucial season during the holidays as that’s where they make most of the profits. Many toy manufacturers rely on Toys R Us to showcase toys throughout the year as many other retailers only stock them up during the Christmas season.

    This is a big blow to the toy industry and also LEGO fans. Toys R Us is one of the major destinations for LEGO purchases and its really sad that they are going away. It also looks like fewer and fewer kids are playing with toys these days as they all play on their iPhones. They also have one of the biggest selection of toys aside from LEGO Brand Retail stores.

    We still remember the commercial and song where they have “I don’t want to grow up, I’m at Toys R Us”. This is really sad.

    We’re literally crying as we start listening to this song. We don’t wanna see the sun set for Geoffrey the Giraffe. )’:
