Here’s some news that many of you have been waiting for. There are now reports of the LEGO Disney Princess Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle (41062) starting to show up at Target stores, most notably in the southeastern states. They might not be on the shelves but the stores may already have shipments in the warehouse ready although they may not be able to sell them. Some of the sets have even shown up on eBay at outrageous prices. For some lucky few, you could possibly find the set in stores before Christmas. If not, it will be widely available on January 1st. There’s a slight chance that other retailers like Toys R Us may release it early as well. I’ll let you guys know if I see them on the floor waiting to be shelved.
Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle (41062) is probably one of the most anticipated sets of 2015 but many wondered why LEGO doesn’t release it for the holiday season to catch in on the Frozen craze. LEGO CEO Jorgen Vig Knudstorp in an interview has noted that, “It’s not so important for us with Frozen.” He also added, “It is definitely across all categories a very strong property, a wonderful movie, but for us, it’s a minor thing.” While the set may not make the best-selling toys list for 2014, it may be a contender in 2015.
