Most LEGO products excluding the newer ones qualify for free shipping on orders above $25. However, they do have the new 2014 LEGO City Advent Calendar with free shipping.

Both LEGO Ideas set, the Research Institute and Exo-Suit sets are now instock and available for sale at ToysRUs.ca. 21109 Exo-Suit is probably a little easier to find nowadays. 21110 Research Institute on the other hand had been quite difficult to obtain. It also created further difficulties when LEGO Shop at Home listed it as not being available for sale online and caused some worried fans regarding the limited availability at LEGO Brand Stores.

Its definitely good news that Toys R Us is now carrying Research Institute. So far, they’re the first retailer that is not LEGO to be selling the research institute set. This means that LEGO is no longer the exclusive holder for this Ideas set. Hopefully, other retailers in the world would start carrying this set soon. Thanks to Kateryna for writing in with the tip!

The LEGO Group has recently released its annual report and from its press release, their global LEGO sales went up 15% for the first half of 2014. One of the most significant drivers this year would be The LEGO Movie. With high ratings for the movie and good sales for the LEGO Movie sets, its no doubt that this pushed it to become the world’s largest toy maker.
Last year back in 2013 around the same time, LEGO became the second largest toy maker pushing Hasbro to number 3. Key growths from last year included LEGO Friends and LEGO Legends of Chima. This year, LEGO has finally claimed the spot for being the largest toy company in the world in terms of sales. Besides The LEGO Movie, other product lines such as LEGO City, Creator, Technic and Star Wars continue to have strong growth.
Back in 2004, LEGO was at the brink of a complete financial downfall. Shown below is CEO Jørgen Vig Knudstorp. Ever since he took up the position as CEO back in 2004 from Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen (the grandson of the original LEGO founder), LEGO was able to pull itself back up and had increases in revenue each year.

The Helicarrier from the Marvel Avengers Movie has reached 10 000 supporters for LEGO Ideas. Congrats YoSub Joo! This is a giant creation as the total span of the ship is about 217 x 115 cm (85.4 x 45.3 inches). A total of 22,694 bricks were used. Do you think LEGO would approve such a massive creation as a LEGO Ideas set?

LEGO Shop at Home has recently just updated the availability status of the popular 21110 LEGO Research Institute set.
We apologize, but this item is no longer available on shop.LEGO.com. Limited quantities may be available in LEGO Store.
The set will no longer be available for sale online and you’ll most likely have to visit your LEGO Brand Retail store to obtain a copy. Forum member omalak reports from the Fairview Mall LEGO Store in Toronto, Ontario that the employee also mentioned that the stores are expecting to receive stock for the set. Unfortunately, this is going to be difficult for those that don’t live near a LEGO store. Thanks to forum member Marcus70 for the tip.
