LEGO Opposes to Toys ‘R’ Us Liquidation of LEGO sets

Toys r us closing down

In the bid to repay as much of the debt that Toys ‘R’ Us owns, they have already announced closing down sales that till run to the end of June or till stocks run out according to The Brick Fan.

However according to Reuters, LEGO along with fifty other companies have placed themselves on the “Do Not Liquidate” list as they would definitely want to have their stock back instead of having it sold for a song.

More than 50 suppliers, including Barbie maker Mattel (MAT.O) and Lego, have objected in some form to the proceedings by the storied toy retailer to liquidate its U.S. business.

So for those AFOLs who are looking forward to getting LEGO at rock bottom prices, might have to look elsewhere if LEGO gets their way.

This does not affect the Asian Toys ‘R’ Us outlets as they are under a different management which brings a bit of hope to the Toys ‘R’ Us exclusive Bricktober sets for 2018.

As we all know, LEGO plans for their promotions way in advance and I’m pretty confident that the Bricktober 2018 sets have been primed for launch. The surviving TRU markets around the world should still go ahead with the promotion as I’m not sure what they would do with the sets if they don’t release them during that period as they are TRU exclusives.
