First up we have the details from Toys R Us. As expected from a dedicated toy retailer, there is plenty going on. Toys R Us will be opening 17 stores around the country at Midnight on Friday September 4th (Thursday night). There are also two different offers available.

Here are all the details:

Midnight Openings
South Australia – Gepps Cross
Victoria – Chadstone, Doncaster, Fountain Gate, Highpoint, Knox City
New South Wales – Bankstown, Campbelltown, Castle Hill, Erina, Moore Park, Parramatta, Penrith, Shellharbour
Australian Capital Territory – Majura Park
Queensland – Aspley, Mount Gravatt

On Sale: Selected Sets 20% Off At Toys R Us

Toys R US Logo 200px

Selected set sales seem to be the popular option at the moment. While they are probably our least prefered type of sale, we’ll never say no to discounted LEGO.

From Wednesday August 19th 2015 to Tuesday September 1st Toys R Us are offering 20% off a range of LEGO sets.

They also have a pretty decent offer on Simpsons Minifigures – any 3 for $10. The catalogue shows a Series 2 packet but it may also extend to Series 1 if your Toys R Us store has any of those left in stock.

You can check out the list of sets below, or view the catalogue here.

On Sale: 20% Off At Toys R Us With Family & Friends Voucher

We were slightly disappointed that the newest Toys R Us catalogue doesn’t feature any LEGO deals, but it looks like they are still looking after us.

This weekend Toys R Us are offering 20% off all full priced toys with a Family & Friends voucher. You will need to print out the voucher, or use the code TOY20 at the online checkout.

This offer runs differently in-store and online;

  • Online: Starts at 6:00 PM tonight (July 30th 2015) and runs until 3:00 AM August 3rd
  • In-store: July 31st – August 2nd 2015

On Sale: Buy 1, Get 1 Half Price At Toys R Us

What an unexpected treat – After posting that the Toys R Us 2015 Toy Sale was ending today we decided to check the Toys R Us website to see if there was a new catalogue. It seems unlikely that that’d have another LEGO sale, right? Wrong.

From tomorrow (Wednesday July 15th 2015) until Tuesday July 28th Toys R Us are offering Buy 1, Get 1 Half Price on selected themes.

That works out as a 25% discount if you buy two identically priced items.

Toys R Us B1G1HP July 2015

If you can’t see the image above the included themes are Ninjago, Bionicle, Chima, Elves, Star Wars, Duplo and Juniors. It’s not the most exhaustive list of themes, but hopefully there will be something for LEGO fans to get excited about.

You will also be able to mix and match across themes – you can get a Ninjago set for half price to go with your Star Wars set.

You can check out the catalogue here

Reminder: Toys R Us 2015 Toy Sale Ends Today

2015 Toy Sale Toys R Us

Another sad day – one more toy sale comes to an end.

If you haven’t already been in to your local Toys R Us store to grab your sale items then today is your last chance.

You can check out the sale details via our original article or via the 2015 Toy Sale HQ page.

On Sale: 20% Off Full Priced Items From Toys R Us

Toys R Us are adding to the excitement of their 2015 Toy Sale by offering 20% off all full priced items with a Friends & Family voucher.

This is a limited offer that runs this weekend only (Friday June 26th 2015 – Sunday June 28th).

You will need to present the voucher in-store or enter the code SAVE20 at the online checkout.

We’re not sure how this will work with sale items – most of the sale items are already at 20% off, but there are quite a few with discounts less than that. We will be checking with Toys R Us to see how the offer works for those sets.

Making The Most Of The Toys R Us Price Match

Toys R US Logo 200px

Toys R Us are willing to take on the other retailers on their 2015 Toy Sale pricing – they are offering an extra 10% off if you find a lower price on an item in their catalogue. That sounds like a lot of work cross checking all of the catalogues and looking for sets that meet their criteria. Well it would be hard work, if we hadn’t already done it for you.

As part of our 2015 Toy Sale coverage we have already created a database of sets in each catalogue. Using some quick searches we have created a list of sets that appear in the Toys R Us catalogue and at least one other catalogue. This should make it easy to get the best possible price.

First things first – let’s check the terms of the Toys R Us offer

Toys”R”Us Price Guarantee is available for products advertised in this catalogue only, on purchases during our Toys”R”Us Sale, Wednesday 24 June to Tuesday 14 July 2015. Excludes online purchases, nappies, wipes, baby food, baby formula, game consoles, iTunes Cards, Prepaid Cards, Gift Cards or non merchandise goods and services. Competitor’s product must be in stock at a retail outlet within the same city or town. Product must be identical (e.g. same brand, model and colour). Competitor’s advertised price must be current. Price Guarantee is not available when the competitor’s lower price is due to category or storewide discounts, conditional sales, package deals, trade-ins, damaged stock, demonstration or discontinued lines and loyalty or third party offers. We will not match online retailers, fire or liquidation sales, clearance and warehouse outlets. Competitor’s price will be matched, and a further 10% discount will be taken off the matched price

Here are the important parts

  • Competitor’s product must be in stock at a retail outlet within the same city or town
  • Product must be identical (shouldn’t be a problem with LEGO sets)
  • Competitor’s advertised price must be current
  • Price Guarantee is not available when the competitor’s lower price is due to category or storewide discounts
  • Competitor’s price will be matched, and a further 10% discount will be taken off the matched price

That second last point may cause some issues – the Myer sale is 20% off LEGO and may therefore be a “category discount”. However we have only included the Myer items that are featured in the catalogue. Hopefully that will get around that restriction. Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that.

You will also need to check when each sale starts. You can do this via our Current Sales page.

So what sets are in multiple catalogues? Here they are:

2015 Toy Sales – All The Deals From Toys R Us

2015 Toy Sale Toys R Us

Here’s an unexpected surprise – on the same day the Big W catalogue officially launches we have the 2015 Toy Sale catalogue from Toys R Us. It’s good to see that the retailers aren’t placing all of their sales at different times of the year.

A reasonable range of LEGO featured in the catalogue. There doesn’t seem to be any big must have exclusive, but a couple of sets that are marked as Toys R Us exclusives. The 10242 Mini Cooper could have been a popular item, but at less than 20% off it’s a little underwhelming.

You’ll notice in our sale listing below that several items are marked [VIP] – these are prices only for VIP members, so if you are planning to pick up one of those sets remember to have your VIP details with you.

 

Sales Period

This sale runs from Wednesday June 24th 2015 until Tuesday July 14th.

We have been told that there is a VIP pre-sale event on Tuesday 23rd for all registered VIP club members (Thanks Brad). We’ll try and find more details of this.

Offers

There is no broad discount on LEGO products, but plenty of items in the catalogue at 20% off.

Toys R Us are also offering a 10% price-beat offer if you can find a lower advertised price on the items in the catalogue. We’ll be looking in to that for readers soon.

On Sale: Various Sets Reduced At Toys R Us

Toys R US Logo 200px

Early June can sometimes be tough on LEGO fans, as retailers hold off for until late June or early July for their big mid-year toy sales. Luckily Toys R Us have decided that there is no need to wait; their new catalogue features a heap of sets on sale, and most at 20% off.

This sale starts today (June 3rd 2015) and runs until Saturday June 20th.

Here is a list of all the sets included in the catalogue.

Take note of the “huge” savings on the Ecto-1 and Raptor Rampage sets (yep, that’s sarcastic). Toys R Us are advertising these as “on sale” and selling them at RRP. We hope that is just an error, and not indication their regular pricing is above RRP.
