Happy Easter everyone! Im sure most of you noticed it was also April Fools today, which makes it just a bit more interesting. According to The Gazzete, the last Easter Fools Day was in 1956, and the next is expected to take place in 2029. Forum link.
Toys'R'us LEGO Sales Posted by Richard on March 25, 2018 at 05:43 PM CST:
While my local TRU store was offering 10% discounts on the majority of the items for sale, LEGO&reh products were one of a select few discounted by only 5%. If you are a LEGO VIP member, then you get 5% back as coupons later anyway, plus the added bonus of any exclusive monthly freebies. As a result, it's only a good sale if you don't like the freebies LEGO Stores are offering and would rather have the cash in hand than waiting for a future LEGO Store purchase. Your local prices and discounts may vary however, as my store has only just begun it's discounts. Forum link.

Toys"R"Us Closing It's Stores Down Posted by Richard on March 15, 2018 at 07:03 PM CST:
This morning I heard the news that Toys"R"us will be shutting down for good. While I have mixed feelings about their emphasis of the word "suggested" in MSRP, I have more good memories of the chain than bad. It's not all bad I suppose, maybe we will get some discounted LEGO® sets out of it. Forum link.

Mask Of Destiny welcomes in a new staff member in this Retro News segment, and that's about all that gets posted due to a computer failure. Oddly enough my current PC had a motherboard die not too long ago, strange how some of the Retro News events seem to coincide with recent events.
