    My avy pretty much sums up my reaction.

    On the one hand it's a cool thing for kids, but on the other this is/was one of the only AOE related bits I was super excited for. Welp so much for that then. Guess I'll just have to stalk Amazon and ebay. :(

    Still taking my kid. A lot of stuff requires parental supervision anyway, and if your kid doesn't put entire toys in his mouth, I don't see the prob. My kid mysteriously likes to chew the paint off of toys, though... :eek: 

    Exactly what I was thinking. Guys, if you don't walk in like a creepy child-stalker, and you know some of the staff (or they've seen you come by several times), I'm sure you can grab an extra set from them. Depending on your area, there may be a lot more sets than there are kids.

    Just be nice and ask an employee for a Lego set and coupons. Do NOT hover around the site nervously, else your behavior get misinterpreted as criminal! :lol

    Not like the Lego event...we really just walked up and were handed one

    Either way...a pretty neat little figure.

    My TRU was pretty cool, but that's because I know most of the staff. My daughter and son both got sets despite their ages adding up to 6...I guess I should have gotten one set according to the fine print. Used my coupon on the grimlock kreo set and voyager grimlock for half off.

    I like how the guys at my Toys R Us have me a Kreo but wouldn't give one to the older adults.

    My son is 3, he got one no questions asked. Like others posted, it wasn't like the lego build events where they give you an empty bag and fill it with the needed pieces. It's a standalone sealed polybag!! Nice.

    Well the ad I had did NOT have any fine print about one per child, so when I went my son got one and then I asked for one and was denied so I asked for the manager. He came over and I showed him the ad where it didn't say anything about adults not being able to get one or anything about one per child. He kept saying well yah we are only giving them out to the kids and I kept saying well then you needed to put that in the ad I'm sorry.
    So he looks at me like I'm insane and said "So you want one for yourself?"
    and I actually sarcastically said "No for another kid." and he said ok I'll go ahead and give you one, and I got one, guess he didn't realize I was sarcastic but they should also know that adults buying and building these toys equal about 50% in sales we aren't the crazy ones they are.
    Hopefully the pics come across of this is what it looks like put together (my son had to do it for me)
    completely nerded out in this pic my transformers kreo set in front of my Robin glass on my TMNT coaster next to my Batman mousepad, lol.

    Took my niece and nephews today and we all made one, they were pretty flexible about the "children only" policy at our TRU.

    As with anything though these are already going for about $20 on Evil-bay :-(
