The Bricktober Event Is Back!

Hellego! Once again, the Bricktober event is back at Toys R Us and is filled with full of exciting Halloween surprises! This year's Bricktober has a total of two Make N Take events and one minifigure trade-in day.

To start off, October 18th will be the Lego Star Wars Minifigure Trade-In Day! For this event, all you have to do is bring any minifigure, it does not have to be a star wars minifigure, look for a store clerk that has minifigures with him and ask to trade with any Lego Star Wars figure he has! The event lasts all day long and there is a limit of only one minifigure trade per person.

Next, on October 25th, it's the Lego Batman Bat-Signal Make N Take event! The event starts at 11am and ends around 1pm. In this event, you go and build your very own Lego Bat-Signal and take it home for free! Here is a weird change that Lego has added to all Make N Take events this year. In the Lego magazine and on the Toys R Us site, they specify that you need to be between 4 and 14 years old to build the model. I find it very disappointing that they put that age limit.

The last event is another Make N Take event and is on November 1st. It's the Lego Star Wars Rebels Make N Take. The model that you will be able to build will be the Ghost Ship. I suspect that it will be a micro-sized version, but it's still pretty cool. Again, the event starts at 11am and ends at 1pm. Just like the Bat-Signal, you get to take the model home for free. They seem to specify also for this event that you need to be between ages 4 and 14.

Another fun Bricktober event is if you spend over 30$, you get a free Lego pumpkin! Also, if you spend 75$ or more, you get a free Streetview Build. The Streetview Build is like a micro modular set. Each week is a different building and you can collect all four to make a nice street. From October 3rd to 9th it's the Theater, October 10th to 16 is the Pizzeria, October 17 to 23rd it's the Fire Station and October 24th to 30th is the Town Hall.

I find that the activities sound really good this year. I am just very disappointed that they put an age limit to be able to participate. I think it's ridiculous that they did that. I don't know, but maybe I will still go and try to sneak my way into building one ;) ... What do you think about this year's Bricktober event? Are you excited? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
