    The 2012 Summer Olympics is now officially over in England, United Kingdom. Final medal standings are as follows:

    1. USA – 46 Gold (104 Total)
    2. China – 38 Gold (87 Total)
    3. Great Britain – 29 Gold (65 Total)

    It was great to watch all of the different sports and events performed by the athletes. The London Opening and Closing Ceremony was spectacular too!

    Our LEGO London Olympics Minifigures Raffle is also now over as well! Thank you to everyone who entered/participated in it. The winner for our raffle is Carl Mikkelsen from USA. Congratulations for winning a complete set of all LEGO Team GB Olympics Minifigures that is exclusively available only in Ireland and the UK!

    The message he posted in response to his favorite/favourite Olympic Team GB minifigure is:

    It’s a tough call because they are all so darn cool, but I have to give it to the archer as my favorite because of the “squinty” face!

    *If you didn’t win this time, don’t forget that we still have another LEGO raffle going on where you could win either a Count Dooku’s Solar Sailer or Toy Story Trash Compactor set! All you need to do is just like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

    As reported last week, Sears Canada is still continuing their 40% off sale on all LEGO. The sales associate told me that all Sears Canada stores are now in the process of removing their Toys Department and all toys including LEGO will be clearanced for 40% off.

    They have a HUGE selection of old/discontinued 2010-2011 LEGO Star Wars sets including Hoth/Clone Battle Packs. Head on over to our forums to see what people are finding. If the sets have clearance red stickers on them, it will be 40% off of that reduced price which means you may be able to get them at a even better price (i.e City Police Dog Unit).

    Note: They do not have a single 2012 LEGO set (not even the January ones like X-Wing and Droid Escape) so don’t even expect new summer sets. I believe they haven’t even place new toy orders after Christmas!

    Its not surprising to find old sets that have been discontinued years ago at Sears and The Bay (anyone remember The Bay carrying LEGO?). But it sure is sad to know that Canadians will now lose another major LEGO retailer. :'(

    ToysRUs.com now has the 2012 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar listed and instock for immediate dispatch! Unfortunately, I believe they marked it up to $59.99 (MSRP should be $39.99).

    With the $15 off $50 LEGO sale they have going on right now, it will bring the price back down to $44.99 and you’ll also get a Series 5 Minifigure. So in the end (after factoring the fact that you pay $2.99 for the Series 5 Minifigure), I guess its somewhat tolerable paying $2 above MSRP for a set that is not available elsewhere yet.

    LEGO Advent Calendar 2012 Star Wars

    And since we haven’t had product descriptions yet, here’s the official LEGO description for the 2012 Advent Calendar. Contains 234 pieces. Apparently, there’s 2 new exclusive Christmas Star Wars minifigures. I think the other exclusive minifigure (besides Darth Maul) they are referring to is the white astromech droid in disguise as a snowman.

    Forum members natelite, eldudearino69 and Yogibara informs us that Toys R Us America currently has a LEGO Coupon where you can get $15 off a $50 LEGO Purchase. Max savings assuming you purchase exactly $50 (and the sets have no markups) would work out to be 30% off. Its unlikely though so if your lucky, you may score somewhere around 20% off. Use coupon code 954521 for online purchases. Valid August 12-18.

    *Apparently, they’re also still offering a free LEGO Series 5 Minifigure with $20 purchase. Stackable with the $15 off $50 LEGO coupon sale.

    If you happen to pass by your local Toys R Us brick and mortar store (don’t do it if you have to purposely drive miles to get to one), they also have a Free $5 Coupon for instore purchases.

    This coupon is good from August 12-16 and is most likely not going to stack with the LEGO Coupon listed above. Therefore, if your being a smart customer, get exactly $5 worth of goods as you’ll get it for free! (i.e their marked up $4.99 LEGO polybag sets)

    In celebration for the London 2012 Olympics, LEGO has acquired the license to officially produce Olympic Athletes in the form of LEGO minifigures. These minifigures are exclusively available only in 2 European nations: Ireland and the United Kingdom. GB stands for the Team Great Britain which represents UK in the Olympic games so it does make sense to sell them only in the UK and not worldwide. However, these minifigures are so detailed that fans all over the world wants them too!

    Are these LEGO Team GB Olympic Minifigures really worth paying more than double the price of what UK and Ireland are paying (£1.99/€2,49) for oversea LEGO fans in North America and elsewhere? Check out the Olympic Minifigures Review in our forums to find out and don’t forget to vote for your favourite LEGO UK Olympic Minifigures!

    Win the Olympic Minifigure Series for Free!

    Don’t forget that until August 12, 2012, Toys N Bricks will be giving away the Team GB Minifigures for free. Yes, its a complete set of all 9 Olympic minifigures! Details can be found in our forums.
