An American friend tells me that Lego is commonly referred to as "Legos" in the States. Is this true?

I am a Canadian who very much enjoyed his Lego as a child. An American friend (from Milwaukee, to be precise) tells me that in the States, they call them "Legos."
I've long been aware that many people add the "s," even though the proper branding is without an 's.' I had always thought that it was just a saying-it-right / saying-it-wrong-(but-who-cares) divide. But now I'm wondering: Is this a national divide? Is Legos-with-an-s actually an Americanism?
