Bricktober Mini Modulars - 2014

Recommended Posts

Confused...you have to spend $75 in order to buy this for $20?

Free with $75 purchase

TRU system value is $20 and some people sat it out on the shelves for that by mistake...

I went to Toys R Us in Foster City, California at opening and they said the only boxes available had a release date of 10/15.  No other stock that is releasible.  It was strange

All four are available in Australia at the moment. We have a min spend of $100, but each set has a TRU "value" of $15 (AUD).

 

I've been flipping them on ebay for $30 (AUD) each, and i've sold 7 within 12 hours.

 

Definitely brought down the cost of my 10220 & 10226

On the one hand, I really like these for both investing and collecting. On the other hand, I hate them if it means Lego won't do a second mini-modular set to follow up with the first one.

TRU in Australia has these online already, I got the fire station with my VW purchase. I can see these being very collectable and highly sought after.

They came out a few days ago. You could purchase them outright initially but the order came down from head office that they can only be acquired when spending over $100 first. Thankfully I managed to order a complete set delivered before that order to stores went out.

Wow that was well done! I'm having to buy a VW Camper or Sopwith Camel each day to get my fill! Today it was the Sopwiths turn. :-)

Biggest issue was they shipped them in a satchel :(

One box sustained some damage but oh well.

I need to get more VW but am not paying the TRU $40 shipping for them.

When exactly does this start again?

 

I keep checking my SoCal TRUs, but nothing.  No CMF Series 12, no Bricktober sets yet...

I had no luck finding bricktober sets in the wild. Did find Series 12 on 10/2, but they were kept at the TRU customer service desk. $3.99.

I think these mini modular designs exclusive to Toys R Us give some credence to the chance we shall see a second official mini modular set being released for Shop-at-Home VIP members especially with next year's modular model coming out. The original included five designs from Caf

Postage for the items I have got from TRU has been a flat rate of $9.95, which isn't too bad.

Living in the middle of Australia everything is more expensive.

 

Argh that sucks... I just assumed TRU had the same shipping rates Australia wide.

I'm not a fan to be honest, I'd rather see an updated version of the 10230. BTW.... 10230 is great for parting out.

So would I but the popularity of 10230 makes me think these will be worthwhile. I love how well it has done since EOL, steady growth.

I see these going for $30 - $40 each on Ebay in Australia.

I was wondering what people think about these? They look pretty cute.

 

Are these worth getting and holding onto? 

 

I think they would look pretty nice on my desk

I think these are winners, they're selling very well on Ebay Australia at high prices. I was planning to get a set for myself to have on my desk too but when it's about $150 for the set of 4 it makes it a very pricey little display! 

 

If you buy a T1 Camper or Sopwith Camel from TRU (which are already discounted) and get one of these for free, you really can't go wrong from an investment standpoint.
