The Toys That Made Us Returns May 25 Including LEGO Episode

It has been announced that The Toys That Made Us will be returning to Netflix on May 25, 2018. There will be four episodes that will be coming which includes Transformers, LEGO, Hello Kitty, and Star Trek. Yes that’s right, we’re finally going to get to see the LEGO episode that was teased about a few months ago. There’s no details on what the episode will consist of but it’ll probably feature some AFOLs from Bricks LA from earlier this year as well as some footage from Billund. It was stated in a comment on my previous post about the show that the LEGO episode will focus on things that previous LEGO documentaries didn’t focus on. Whatever that means, it’ll be exciting to see what that could be.

The Brick Fan Subreddit

Facebook recently has been making changes that don’t necessarily help page owners and with the recent news of the data privacy scandal, it’s time to make some changes around here. A few days ago, I start my own subreddit where I can post there without it not being seen by users as Facebook sometimes does. Some of you may have already subscribed to it when I posted on social media that I created the subreddit.

The subreddit also allows users to easily post their own content where without having to go look around FB on how to post on a particular page and it’s chronological, a very good feature.

Anyways, feel free to join the subreddit and connect on there as well. It looks pretty plain but I’ll change out the layout when I have time. Again, thank you everyone for your continued support as we keep evolving.

LEGO Objects to Toys R Us Liquidation Sales

Toys R Us’ bankruptcy court hearing was yesterday and they’ve announced that the going out of business sales will being Thursday for the rest of the stores with it running until June or earlier if inventories sell out quicker. Toys R Us says they are working to make the maximum payments they can to the vendors as well as the banks as they are starting to close down more than 700 stores. They are also wanting to stop more than $450 million in payments to suppliers which is a move that will hurt smaller toy companies on their books.

According to a report by Reuters, there are more than 50 vendors, including LEGO, that have objected to the liquidation. Obviously LEGO would like to have their products back instead of having it sold at lower prices in order to make payments to the banks. This corresponds to the memo that I reported on seeing the other day that lists LEGO on the “Do Not Liquidate” list but there are also reports that some stores have listed LEGO sets at 10% off which are probably the older ones.
