    The weekly sale for this week at Toys R Us may seem like not much with their markups. However, we would like to draw your attention on some potential deals.

    Hobbit Barrel Escape is currently $27.99 online (reg.$39.99) which is 30% off the regular price already. Its also stackable with the current $15 off $60 sale. If you buy two of these Barrel Escape sets and add a polybag (like Lake Town Guard for $4.99), you’ll end up getting savings in the range of about 45% off.

    Other worthwhile deals include The new LEGO Movie sets as these have not been marked up yet.

    Thanks to forum member h22chen and everyone else who contacted us or posted in the forums.

    “We are thrilled to collaborate with Fox during the 25th anniversary year of the Simpsons,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president licensing & entertainment at The LEGO Group. “We know our fans will love the challenge of building the Simpsons’ family home in great detail and the ability to collect quintessential characters in LEGO minifigure form will let them showcase their love of the show in a whole new way. We are also excited that THE SIMPSONS will be created in LEGO form, truly bringing this partnership to life.”

    “We are kicking off the 25th anniversary of THE SIMPSONS in a big way, and we think LEGO-loving fans of the show will be impressed with this collaboration that represents the best of both iconic worlds through the LEGO and THE SIMPSONS construction set, minifigures and LEGO-themed episode,” said Jeffrey Godsick, president of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products. “Our partnership with LEGO is the perfect addition to the range of product lines that will be introduced globally in celebration of this great milestone achievement in television history.”
