#40026 Liberty Polybag
#850497 Liberty Magnet
#40025 New York Taxi Polybag
#853309: New York Key Chain
#853317: I (love) NY Figure Magnet
buy it, it is amazing. I have some american friends who always buy it for me because its amazing and they are awesome like that!
If you want a preview, here are photos from my visit to the FAO Schwarz store from April: http://brickupdate.com/lego-at-fao-schwarz-spring-2014/
And here is a visit to the Toys R Us back in 2012:
#40026 Statue of Liberty poly was available last week but has since sold out. the "I BRICK NY" printed items will no longer be available and we have our lovely I LOVE NY tourism group to thank for that.
the I LOVE NY brand. i guess LEGO never considered applying for the license and
the returns on the merchandise were too significant for the tourism group to overlook.
as LEGO will probably not view this as a lost opportunity, the chances of the
I BRICK NY merchandise making a return are slim to none.
Enjoy your visit Boo!
The store is doing a four day giveaway:
Today : T-shirt
Saturday : Model Brand Store
Sunday : Minifig set
Monday : Micro Statue of Liberty model
I already have a Brand Store from the Watford opening, and the t-shirts are all a bit on the small side, so what I really wanted was the minifigs, but sadly we fly home on Saturday afternoon.
I had a chat with the manager, and obviously he couldn't give one of the minifig sets away a couple of days early, so obviously I didn't go in today and buy a White House model, and obviously he didn't nip out the back, grab a minifig set and let me have it.
Because that would obviously be wrong.
So that didn't happen.
Not at all.
Did nip back later and pick up a Trevi Fountain, so got a t-shirt. It won't fit me, so I'll either hang on to it for the Fairy Bricks raffle next year, or I'll send it to @Huw to use as a giveaway.
I love New York!
Thanks for the update!!
No I don't work there...I've been shopping there for over 4 years and I can honestly say that this store treats customers the right way. Once my friends shop at this store it quickly becomes their store of preference as well.
Photos aren't great - will redo them soon.
had them available for regular purchase.
but don't hold your breath.
Will definitely try and get to the Lego Store at Queens this time round.
btw, i have an extra Lightning Lad Minifigure Gift set that i would be glad to pass on to you for cost if you're visiting from outside of the US. let me know when you'll be in NYC and it will be on hold for you.
Glad to hear that you will be shopping at Queens when you come to NY. I said it two years ago in this same thread. The Queens LEGO Store is just awesome from the manager on down through the staff. I've been shopping there since the beginning of this store's existence (going on 5.5 years now) and thankfully the experience there is always top notch.
When you're there take a look at I LUG NY's LUG Showcase model. It is in the last showcase on the left hand side of the store!
^Rock Center and Flatiron stores have recently reset their prices back to match [email protected] prices.
i'm not sure but it may have to do with the fact TRU returned to Times Square. the prices changed the same week TRU opened. coincidence?
they usually have power functions but i would strongly recommend that you call ahead before showing up in person.
