LEGO’s September Store Calendar is now available online, and it is one super-exciting month for all Ninjago and Star Wars fans. This month celebrates the theatrical release of The LEGO Ninjago Movie with not just one, but TWO promotional polybags for the month. September also marks the much awaited return of Force Friday, aptly dubbed as this year’s Force Friday II. To sweeten the deal, LEGO brings back double VIP points for any LEGO Star Wars purchase made from September 1 to 3, PLUS a free promotional Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure. Let’s take a closer look.
September 1-3: LEGO Star Wars Force Friday II.
Earn double VIP points on all LEGO Star Wars items, and get a FREE exclusive Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure with purchase of $50 or more while supplies last. For most of us, the exclusivity of this promotional minifigure will be the main reason why we’re holding on to that next LEGO purchase until September 1.
I just hope that we will not go through that same predicament most us experienced when during last year’s Force Friday, with the exclusive Darth Revan minifigure promotional attached to it, shop.LEGO.com listed that the sought after Darth Revan minifig already ran out of stock just 4 to 6 hours after Force Friday officially kicked in. We just have to wait and see.
September 4-21: FREE The LEGO Ninjago Movie mini Green Ninja Mech Dragon (30428) for purchases of $35 or more.
TLNM offers an impressive range of promotional polybags, based mostly on its larger mech replicas such as the Green Ninja Mech Dragon (70612), Ice Tank (70616), and the rumored Quake Mech. I’m pretty sure that these polybags will be in demand in the aftermarket after their promotional period.
September 4-30: FREE exclusive The LEGO Ninjago Movie poster with a LEGO Ninjago purchase.
Other than the cool polybags, you also get to bring home a complimentary, The LEGO Ninjago Movie poster for purchase of any TLNM set, minifigure or accessory. This promo will run from September 4 to 30.
September 5 & 6: FREE VIP Monthly Mini Model Build which is a Dinosaur.
To reserve your spot, simply register for the September MMB by visiting shop.LEGO.com/Minibuild-Registration starting August 15. The LEGO MMB is meant for children ages 6 to 14, and must be completely built in store.
September 14-30: VIPs get early access to TWO exclusive sets.
We have reason to believe that one of these D2C sets is the rumored comeback of the LEGO UCS Millennium Falcon, while the other one is completely under wraps. The excitement is really intense!
September 16: VIP Ninjago Building Event.
LEGO Ninjago fans ages 6 to 14 will have a blast building this mini version of Kai’s Red Fire Mech. This event is exclusively for VIP members and registration is necessary to participate.
September 18-24: Dress Like a Ninja Week.
Put on your ninja garb and visit any LEGO store dressed up like your favorite Ninjago hero and get a free Ninjago mask while supplies last.
September 22 – October 8: FREE The LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd Minifigure (30609) with purchase of $50 or more.
Just in time for The LEGO Ninjago Movie’s big screen debut, we finally have information on how we can bring home one of Lloyd’s most impressive minifigure version. Found over at eBay a few days ago, we now know that the Lloyd Minifigure (30609) polybag will come as a free promotional during the said dates for any LEGO purchase of $50 and above.
If you can still hold on to that LEGO spending power, then now is probably time to do so. There’s a handful of pretty impressive sets that you may want to check out in September such as the colourfully detailed Ninjago City (70620) and the idyllic LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310). If you want to go massive, then be on the lookout on what LEGO has in store on September 14 and 15.
