LEGO Pods Availability Revealed in 2017 Toy R Us Ultimate Guide to Play Toy Book

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Kai's Dojo Pod (5004916)

A few months ago, images of a couple of new LEGO “pod” polybags showed up online. These included The LEGO Ninjago Movie Kai’s Dojo Pod (5004916) and the LEGO Friends Ski Pod (5004920). There has been no information on their availability until now. Toys R Us has released their 2017 Toys R Us Ultimate Guide to Play Toy Book and inside it shows how to get them. According to the ad, you can get either one with a purchase of $30 or more on a LEGO construction set(s). Below are the RWeb# for the pods:

Kai’s Dojo Pod (327669)
Ski Pod (196631)

The ads don’t say when the two LEGO pods are available but the prices in the book start on October 26-November 18. I assume the two promos start and end on the same days as well. The LEGO deals 2017 Toy R Us Ultimate Guide to Play Toy Book start on page 72 and there are also more spread throughout the book.

Thanks to Phillip from BestBlackFriday.com for the heads up.

LEGO Friends Keepsake Box (40266)

There’s a LEGO promotion going on at LEGO Brand Stores and on [email protected] for the LEGO Friends Keepsake Box (40266). The set is free with purchases of a LEGO Friends purchase of $25 or more. The 105 piece set comes in a box and inside, it contains two unnumbered bags, three loose white 6×10 plates, a small sticker sheet, and the instructions.

The build is straight-forward with no advanced techniques. The cover is filled with the stickers applied to the tiles. There’s a plate bow piece used as the handle. The storage area here is 8x4x2.

There’s also a drawer that comes out from the front that is 6x3x1/3 in size. It’s pretty small and pretty limited to what you are able to put inside.

Overall the LEGO Friends Keepsake Box (40266) is an okay set. If you’ve collected some of the other Friends accessory products, this is a good complement to them. It looks like this is this a popular promotion on [email protected] since it has been replaced with a previous Friends promotion. Your best chance to get it is at LEGO Brand Stores and on the secondary market.

LEGO Friends Tic Tac Toe (40265) Review

LEGO Friends Tic Tac Toe (40265)

For the whole month of April, LEGO Stores and [email protected] will be giving out a free 58 piece LEGO Friends Tic Tac Toe (40265) polybag with a $20 LEGO Friends purchase, while supplies last.

One of the more interesting things about the set is the packaging. It uses the newer softer plastic that you can easily tear open to access the contents.

LEGO Friends Tic Tac Toe (40265)

The build is very simple using plates as the base and tiles along with jumper plates to get the smooth top. There are five white bunnies and five light gray hamsters to use as play pieces. The hamster is actually very rare as this is only the second set that it has appeared in with the other being the Heartlake Riding Club (41126) which only has one of them included. Also fairly rare are the 1×1 dark magenta tiles and the 4×10 lime green baseplates.

LEGO Friends Tic Tac Toe (40265)

As the set name states, this is a Tic Tac Toe board in which a player has to line up three pieces horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.

LEGO Friends Tic Tac Toe (40265)

As I mentioned before, the LEGO Friends Tic Tac Toe (40265) polybag is free with a $20 LEGO Friends purchase throughout the month of April. It’s a nice little travel-sized game that kids can take along during trips. For the collectors, some of the rarer pieces may be of interest.
