My “Brick” Friday Experience

Black Friday at the LEGO Store

I arrived at the Fashion Valley LEGO Store in San Diego about 30 minutes before the “Brick” Friday midnight opening. The line wasn’t as long as I thought unlike the nearby stores that had lines of 50+ people waiting for their openings. While waiting, I had a nice, friendly chat with a few people about different LEGO sets and the state of LEGO at this point in time.

As the doors opened, there wasn’t a mad rush but I did see a lot of people grabbing the LEGO Star Wars 2012 Advent Calendar (9509)icon, which was 50% off, as well as the Winter Village Cottage (10229). I only had two items left on my list so far to purchase, the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Quinjet Aerial Battle (6869) and the LEGO Star Wars Palpatine’s Arrest (9526).

As the I checked out, the Quinjet was 10% off and I was given a chance to choose a scratch-off card for a discount on an item. I picked out a 10% card so that went towards Palpatine’s Arrest. As part of the promotion, I received the LEGO Christmas Holiday Set (3300014) for free. There was also a promotion for a Holiday Pick-A-Brick box but the cashier almost forgot about it and I had to ask for it.

Later in the morning, I was browsing on Amazon to see what was on sale on Black Friday. I found some books that had massive discounts and I’ve been wanting to get them. I purchased The LEGO Book, the LEGO Continue

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Toys”R”Us Pre-order

Toys”R”Us has released pictures and decriptions for the new LEGO Marvel Super Heroes sets. They are available for pre-order today and have the estimated ship date of 4/10/2012. My first impressions of the set are that they look pretty good. I’m not sure about Iron Man’s helmet though. It looks a little too big and disproportional to the body. The other figures look great though.

**Update 3/27/12** Apparently, Toys”R”Us has removed all the pre-order links for all the sets except for Wolverine’s Chopper Showdown. I’m not sure when those links will be live again.

**Update 3/31/12** From what I’m reading, it looks like some of the sets are hitting stores already. Sets should be available beginning April 8. Be on the lookout for early releases.

**Update 4/8/12** Sets can now be purchased in many retail stores including LEGO Shop@Home.
