Scanned images of the LEGO Store August Calendar are now making rounds online, and we now have a glimpse of the various sales and activities that will happen across LEGO stores in the US next month. Though the official PDF version of the calendar is still yet to be released, we can still have a closer look on what is in store in August. Check this out.
It seems that LEGO is investing a considerable amount of effort in promoting its latest robotics offering, the LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox (17101). The set is now available for pre-order both at shop.LEGO.com and via Amazon, and will debut to the general public starting August 1. Additionally, another exclusive D2C set is slated to arrive in August with the highly anticipated LEGO Creator Expert London Bus (10258). The iconic red bus will be available exclusively at all LEGO Stores and at shop.LEGO.com starting August 1.
August 10-31: Free exclusive Caveman & Cavewoman minifigures (5004936) with a purchase of $50 or more.
LEGO’s latest minifigure promotional was first spotted in LEGO Europe Summer Store Calendar last month, and as it seems, minifigure collectors in North America will also have the same opportunity of bringing this home. Referred to as the Iconic Cave set (5004936), this set comes with two rehashed collectible minifigures of a Caveman and Cavewoman, both of which were originally released under LEGO’s CMF Series 1 and Series 5 respectively. This follows LEGO’s past minifigure promotionals such as the Gingerbread Man and Chicken Suit Guy.

A perfect gift to the budding LEGO enthusiast, this free set contains several Duplo pieces, sticker sheet, and pages of building activities designed for toddlers and preschoolers.

Here’s a chance to sign-up for a one-on-one workshop on how to get the most out of the LEGO Boost Creative Toolbox (17101) set. Participants will learn how to code using the tech savvy set, with several demonstrations on how the LEGO Boost is the next big thing in brick-built robotics.
