As previously reported, this year’s LEGO Bricktober themed sets will start arriving this month at Toys R Us stores in Asia. The quartet of models feature brick-built coin-operated rides, said to be based on the Space, Pirates, Castle and Western themes, all packaged in separate boxes and combined into one colourful telescopic box.
The first of these region-exclusive sets, Space Adventure Ride, was reported to be arriving from September 29, with the three additional models available weekly thereafter. Geek Culture has now posted that each GWP can be picked up from TRU stores in Asia starting with Space Adventure Ride from September 23 to October 4, with the rest of the sets being released weekly from that point on.
It’s reported that the four LEGO Bricktober sets can be obtained with a minimum spend of S$80 (approximately £50), while stocks last. The four sets may also appear at LEGO Certified Stores in some regions, with Canadian TRU stores receiving a range of LEGO Bricktober models last year.
Each set is said to be limited to one redemption per receipt and two redemptions per customer. The latest report reveals that the previously mentioned Western model is in fact called Fantasy Adventure Ride and the name of the Castle build is Dragon Adventure Ride. The latter appears to be based on The Dragon: Roller-coaster attraction, as seen at LEGOLAND Windsor Resort.
In addition, the box for each LEGO Bricktober set includes separate instruction sheets for constructing the base and the ride, so that two builders can make their own models before combining them into one. Rounding out the themed sets are a comic activity sheet for kids to complete, with blank speech balloons for younger LEGO fans to create their own stories.
All four models feature a spinning turbine and hand-powered crank mechanism to simulate the rocking movement of each coin-operated ride. The sets also include two hair pieces for their respective minifigures, allowing builders to choose if they’d prefer to make a male or female character.
