Bricktober Polys in the Database?

edited October 2011 in Everything else LEGO
Are this years TRU Bricktober minifig magnet poly bags going to be included in the Brickset database? Are previous years in there?

I'm asking because I can't seem to locate any Bricktober sets from 2010 or prior...? When I do a search, Magnets/Bricktober comes up in the drop down, but there doesn't seem to be an actual category when I select it.

    Last years are in there somewhere and I'll add this years as soon as we know their numbers.

    ^^ Thanks Huw.

    Still can't seem to find anything when I search... I missed last years offering and wanted to get a look at them. I have the sets from 2009 or 2008 (which weren't minifigs or magnets). If you need photos of this year's bags and contents, I can provide pix, as I am collecting them this time around.

    ^ thanks Yellowcastle... but that means I need to know the specific figures in order to find them (which I don't). It might help to somehow list them under events or bricktober to make searching easier.

    ^ yeah, same here. That was the only way I found them.

    I assume the search function doesn't pull key words from the item descriptions? Thus no results for Bricktober?

    I was looking for these the other day too. You know, this is a prime candidate for a BrickList, anyone care to oblige?
  • LegogeekLegogeek Orange County, CaliforniaMember Posts: 711
    Sounds like a good idea!
    I'd oblige, but I only have one past set (which I also can't seem to find on Brickset), and I'm missing last year's minifig magnets. No idea idea what came before...
    How many years have they (TRU) been doing Bricktober?
    Is it just TRU USA? What about the UK or other regions?
    Who else offers Bricktober exclusives?
    If you were born in Bricktober are you entitled to a free LEGO gift?
    So many questions waiting to be answered! ;oP

    I only became aware of them from 2010 onwards. They certainly haven't done this in the UK either last year or this. I have a couple from last year from previous trades.

    I think the other set I have is from 2009 (maybe 2008?).
    If I recall correctly it was some sort of build a wall assembly with something printed on it. I'll have to try & locate it.

    OK, so I've found an image of #2 on TRU, can someone point me at the others, please?
  • HuwHuw Brickset Towers, Hampshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 7,015
    Thanks!

    Thanks for updating the Gear entry Huw.

    Just as an FYI, I found some images of the 2009 Bricktober set...

    No idea where I have mine stashed away at the moment.
