October 2022 Shopping Guide

The first of the month is often a busy day for LEGO® shoppers. We tend to see lots of new sets hitting store shelves. While January and the summer months provide the largest influx, other months also provide interesting new additions. This month is nothing to balk at, so we’ve put together an October 2022 shopping guide for you! With new releases, Bricktober, a double VIP points event, and new gifts-with-purchase (GWPs), it is shaping up to be a great month.

As you can see, there are lots of interesting promotions happening this month. Ray the Castaway overlaps with double VIP points for three days… though it will be a risk to wait that long for the GWP. It might sell out fast. Additionally, there is a new VIP add-on pack for Halloween. However, you also have Bricktober to consider. This is the strongest offering from Toys R Us in years. Which promotion are you most looking forward to? Let us know in the comments below or reach out on social media.

Until next time,

    Halloween Add-on Pack GWP sold out online.

    1. Seems like it was a popular one. People have been telling me it’s gone in stores too☹️

    Ray the Castaway! 100%. One on the way and hoping for a second with Holiday Main Street and something to hit the $150.
    Thank you, you are my #1 source for Lego info. So nice to have Canadian content.

    1. Ray the Castaway is certainly worth doubling up on if you can! So glad you like our content☺️

    Ray the Castaway for me.
    I have already placed an order online with Lego Canada.
    I am truly looking forward to adding this set to my collection.
    In my opinion this is one of the nicest GWPs from Lego in a very long time.

    I would also like to thank you for all the reviews and information that you pass along to Lego collectors.

    1. It is one of the best GWPs in my opinion too. I’m glad you’ve found the site helpful. Thanks so much!
