    The new LEGO Minifigures Series 12 are now available for sale at various retailers in the United States. There are reports from Wal-Mart, Target and Walgreens. All three retailers are selling the minifigures for $3.99 each. We thought that the $1 markup from $2.99 was only for The Simpsons Minifigures because of the license. Turns out now that the $3.99 pricing is here to stay!

    Thanks to forum member dehnehsu, ammes7 and poniemomo for the report.

    Walmart.com currently has gift card offers for two hard to find online exclusive sets. Its a bit unfortunate that they can’t do direct sales on these exclusive sets anymore, but its good to see that they’re still constantly trying to give promotions and offers for these sets.

    5002812 LEGO Classic Spaceman Minifigure September 2014 Promotion - Toysnbricks

    The exclusive 5002812 Classic Spacman Minifigure and Worriz’ Fire Bike freebies promotion was supposed to end on September 14. However, it appears that LEGO Shop at Home still have stock for both products so they’re still having the promotion going on. For the Classic Spacman Minifigure, you will need to sign in as a LEGO VIP to see the offer.

    September 2014 Promotions

    • FREE Worriz’ Fire Bike with purchases of $50 or more
    • FREE exclusive Classic Spaceman Minifigure with purchases of $99 or more (LEGO VIPs only)
    • Shop Now: USA | Canada

    In addition, when you order the exclusive 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van, there is another freebie you can get! In addition to the other 2 promo sets you get above, you also get the 40079 Mini VW T1 Camper Van. Not bad for a hard to find set that doesn’t get discounted! Thanks to Brian Looman for writing in and forum member Legobrandon for the tip.

    Over 120 January 2015 LEGO set images have recently surfaced online. They do however have confidential stamps on them so we can only compile a list of all the set names. After seeing the images, it did help with the confirmation that the LEGO Pirates rumor and other sets are indeed coming. Pretty exciting year to look forward to!

    Forum member starfire2 sent in an image of the LEGO 79016 Attack on Lake Town set. She found this at her local Toys R Us store in Phoenix, AZ. Price is $39.99. Other Toys R Us stores should be putting this set for sale along with the other Hobbit sets soon.

    *Images for these sets were revealed earlier last month, but they had to be removed due to license agreements

    The four new LEGO Bricktober 2014 Mini Modular building sets are apparently now being put on the shelves at Toys R Us for direct sale. Forum member byobu found LEGO 40182 Bricktober Fire Station for $19.99 USD at his local Toys R Us store in America. Although the set is close to the 200 piece range making it the “golden ratio” of $0.1 per piece, the set is actually small and looks more like a $10 set.

    • 40182 LEGO Bricktober Fire Station
    • 40183 LEGO Bricktober Town Hall

    LEGO 40182 Fire Station ToysRUs USA
    In the past, these Bricktober exclusives are usually free with LEGO purchases of $60 for USA or $75 for Canada. Do you prefer the new way where Toys R Us now directly sell these sets or do you prefer the old ways where they give them away when you meet a certain spending threshold?
