LEGO Toys R Us 2018 Bricktober sets include Harry Potter

Images of this year’s LEGO Bricktober minifigure box sets have been shared online.

For the past few years, the LEGO Group has teamed up with Toys R Us to offer the bizarrely named ‘Bricktober’ promotion. Typically, fans can get free with purchase – or more commonly buy at an unreasonably inflated price – a box set of four minifigures during the month of October, or a different month. It turns out that new sets had been planned for this year, with Zusammengebaut sharing images.

As well as LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and LEGO NINJAGO, there is a LEGO Harry Potter set that will continue to add to the theme’s impressive minifigure line-up.

The fate of these sets is unknown – other sets that would have been Toys R Us exclusives are going elsewhere in the UK. Whether these will also be sold by independent retailers, or another chain, or are simply dumped at a clearance house is currently unknown. Countries in which Toys R Us continues to operate may still get the sets.

The LEGO Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme will launch on August 1. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will be released in cinemas on November 16.
