    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.

    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?

    Both LEGO Ideas set, the Research Institute and Exo-Suit sets are now instock and available for sale at 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!

    To complete my review of 10245, I take a look at the whole building on its own, compare it to another previous offering in the Winter Village line, talk about the minifigures, then the entire package. There is also a poll where you can rate it yourself, and of course, feel free to chime in with your opinions! Check it out now!

    LEGO is now the World’s Largest Toy Company

    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.
