LEGO Bricktober 2018 Sets Confirmed for Barnes & Noble

LEGO Harry Potter Bricktober 2018 (5005254)

Earlier today I reported that we finally get some images of the LEGO Bricktober 2018 sets which came from a Toys R Us Germany flyer. Unfortunaly for those countries including the US who doesn’t have a Toys R Us anymore, it was up in the air of which retailer would be getting the set. It has been confirmed on Twitter that Barnes & Noble, of all places, will be getting the sets later this year. There’s still no dates on when the LEGO Bricktober 2018 sets will be available but at least we know where we can get them.

Thanks to everyone who emailed in about this piece of news. I was at work and couldn’t update for the past few hours.

Update: LEGO just clarified that only the LEGO Harry Potter set will be available at Barnes & Noble so it’s still unsure which retailer(s) will get the other ones.

LEGO Bricktober 2018 Sets Revealed

LEGO Bricktober 2018

A few months ago, I reported on some rumored LEGO Bricktober 2018 sets and it looks like we now have a first look at the sets that come from a German Toys R Us flyer. There will be four sets in the wave and they include various LEGO themes including LEGO Harry Potter (5005254), LEGO Jurassic World (5005255), LEGO Marvel Super Heroes (5005256), and LEGO Ninjago (5005257).

The LEGO Harry Potter set will include minifigures of Madam Rolanda Hooch, Professor Horace Slughorn, Dolores Umbridge, and Boggart Snape.

THe LEGO Jurassic World set will have Ian Malcolm, Claire Dearing, Owen Grady, and a small velociraptor.

The LEGO Ninjago set will have characters from the Sons of Garmadon storyline.

Finally the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes set will have War Machine, Wong, Tony Stark with the Mark 50 arc reactor, and White Wolf/Bucky.

There’s no word yet if the LEGO Bricktober 2018 sets will be available outside of Toys R Us but if you look closely at the sets, you’ll notice that there is no Toys R Us printing like with sets from previous years so it makes me think that they will be available elsewhere.

Rumored LEGO Bricktober 2018 Set Details

As we all know by now, Toys R Us will be completely shutting down and from what I’m hearing from my manager, most stores will be closed by the end of June. However, this news doesn’t stop the fact that there are some rumored information about the 2018 LEGO Bricktober sets. A source has told me that there are at least three sets which will include themes like LEGO Ninjago, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, and LEGO Harry Potter.

From the Ninjago set, it will feature characters from the Son of Garmadon storyline.

For the Marvel Super Heroes set, it is said it will be an Avengers: Infinity War set featuring War Machine, Wong, Tony Stark with the Mark 50 arc reactor, and White Wolf/Bucky.

Finally for the Harry Potter set, there is Madam Rolanda Hooch, Professor Horace Slughorn, Dolores Umbridge, and Boggart Snape.

The main question is since Toys R Us is closing here in the US, where LEGO has a bigger market share compared to Canada and Asia where TRU is still operating as usual, who will now get the Bricktober exclusive? I can see LEGO doing it themselves in October similar to what TRU did every week of the month which would be the easiest way. Target or Walmart might also get their hands on it and I’ve even heard Amazon could be a potential substitute but that’s very farfetched. LEGO would also probably do some repackaging to remove the Toys R Us branding or they could leave it as is to save money. … Continue
