We’re one with the legion of Star Wars fans in celebrating this month’s May the 4th Celebrations, and just when you thought that visiting any LEGO Brand Store couldn’t be any better this month of May, LEGO has now released its June Store Calendar with great promos, events, and plenty of mini-builds that are surely irresistible. Take a look at your local LEGO Store’s June activities as you can see from the calendar below. You may also download the LEGO Store June Calendar in pdf format right here.
June 1: Get the new exclusive LEGO Creator Expert Carousel (10257)!
Beginning June 1st, fans of the LEGO Fairground theme will be able to purchase the LEGO Creator Expert Carousel (10257). We came to know of its offering when, a few days ago, we saw a snapshot of it a few days ago. The following day, it was officially revealed by LEGO and it was simply gorgeous. Coming at 2,670 pieces set 10257 will retail at $199.99 and will be exclusively available at all LEGO Brand Stores and at shop.LEGO.com.
June 1-14: Free Minifigure Travel Pack (5004932) with purchases of $35 or more, while supplies last.
This offer is exclusively available in all LEGO Brand Stores and at shop.LEGO.com for every single receipt purchase of any LEGO product worth $35 and above. If you recall, we’ve got an early hint of the LEGO Minifigure Travel Pack last February. The set is made up of 41 pieces: a tourist minifigure, a LEGO Store Passport, and quite a handful of minifig accessories.
June 1-26: Build a base camp for the Rebel Alliance, complete with Star Wars ships, droids and more.
It seems that the Force is still strong at all LEGO stores even for the month of June. Since last April, LEGO has been offering an in-store, building activity where kids and kids-at-heart may participate in building the Rebel Alliance base camp. Snap a photo of your creation and upload it to the LEGO Life app to receive a pair of wearable Yoda ears while supplies last. This building activity is for children ages 6-14 only.
June 1 onwards: Free Keychain offer with any purchase when you register for the LEGO VIP Program.
The exclusive LEGO VIP Key Chain (853303) is valid for newly joining VIP members from June 1 to December 31, 2017 or while supplies last. VIP Cards obtained in store must be registered online at VIP.LEGO.com/register to qualify. Likewise, new members who have successfully completed registration via online or in-store signups are eligible for a coupon code that, in turn, can be used to claim their LEGO VIP Keychain with their next purchase on shop.LEGO.com or at any LEGO store. The coupon will be delivered via email within 24 hours of registration and is valid for six (6) months.
June 3: Out of this World building event.
To celebrate the launch of the LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309) in June, kids ages 6-14 get to build and take home a mini space shuttle for free. Registration has already begun since May 1 so be sure to stop by your local LEGO Store for details on how to register.
June 6-7: Free VIP Dragonfly Monthly Mini Model Build.
For the month of June, the next FREE mini build will be the Dragonfly (40244). To reserve a spot, visit shop.LEGO.com/Minibuild-Registration starting May 15.
June 14 and 28: LEGO DC Super Hero Girls Wonder Woman and Super Girl building event respectively.
LEGO Stores this month will also offer two mini models of DC Super Hero Girls which you can build and bring home, the first of which is Wonder Woman and second is Super Girl both of which will be available on June 14 and 28 respectively. Due to limited space, LEGO Stores may only be able to accommodate one build event per child (ages 6-14). Registration is also required. See an in-store Brick Specialist for more details.
June 15-30: Free exclusive Canvas Tote Bag with purchases of $199 or more.
It’s nice to see that even though the LEGO Canvas Tote Bag (5005326) is somehow similar to 2011’s LEGO Large Tote Bag (853261), there is still some difference in its style and design. The Canvas Tote Bag comes free with purchases of any LEGO merchandise for a minimum purchase of $199 or while supplies last.
June 15-30: VIPs get early access to a new exclusive LEGO set.
There has been plenty of rumors floating around that this exclusive July D2C may in fact be the LEGO Minecraft The Mountain Cave (21137). Hailed as the largest LEGO Minecraft set to date, with plenty of mobs, characters and play features, the Mountain Cave is expected to be at around 3,000 pieces and with a price point of around $300. Please do note that this is just our best guess since the set was teased by LEGO last month.
I just find it rather odd that LEGO has prominently featured the Marvel heroes of the GOTG Vol. 2 for its June Store Calendar, though all of its related sets were released already in April, and that the store calendars itself does not feature these sets, save for The Milano vs. The Abilisk (76081) which was featured in the May LEGO Store Calendar.
Nevertheless, the month of June will see the release of the following superb sets such as the LEGO City Fun at the Beach (60153), LEGO Batman Movie The Ultimate Batmobile (70917), LEGO Star Wars Rathtar Escape (75180), and the highly anticipated and largest LEGO Ideas set to date – the LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309).
