As we all know that Toys ‘R’ Us is shuttering all of their stores in the United States and United Kingdom, there is still a glimmer of hope that we will still get to enjoy this year’s Bricktober promotions here in Asia.
Most of LEGO product cycles start at least 8-9 months before the promotion is launched and it has surfaced that some of the sets have already been produced (to some extent).
My sources are saying that this year’s Bricktober promotion will be similar to last’s years gift-with-purchase with a set of four minifigures per week.
So far we know that there will three sets of minifigures with one for Ninjago: Son of Garmadon, Avengers: Infinity War and Harry Potter. There should be a 4th but that information is still being confirmed at the moment.
Avengers: Infinity War: War Machine, Wong (Dr Strange sidekick), Tony Stark (Mark 50 Arc Reactor) and White Wolf/Bucky.
Harry Potter: Rolanda Hooch, Professor Horace Slughorn, Dolores Umbridge and Boggart Snape (Severus Snape in Neville’s grandmother’s clothes).
Ninjago: Son of Garmadon: (if anyone has any info on this do drop a comment below!)
The Harry Potter Bricktober pack would be a nice lead in to the LEGO Harry Potter minifigure series that we will be getting later in the year and the Avengers: Infinity War packs will be a must get to for Marvel minifigure collectors.
