LEGO is pushing through with its plans of going entirely digital now that the July 2019 LEGO Store Calendar has been released online. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what’s in store for LEGO fans next month.
July 1-31: Weekly Building Challenges
Starting every Monday of July, your local LEGO store will feature space-themed building challenges where participants may have their brick creations put on display. I’m not quite sure if registration is required but I guess the calendar implies that walk-ins are also accepted.
July 12-14: It’s Christmas in July!
This is quite interesting since this promo is available only on weekends, and the calendar did not exactly specify what could be the exclusive offer. However, since this portion of this advert mentions that the offer is valid until supplies last, I am assuming that the set to be given away is the limited edition 2018 holiday gift-with-purchase set, Christmas Gift Box (40292). This is a gorgeous set filled with hidden surprises, so if you missed out on this one, be sure to drop by your local LEGO Store during this 3-day promo event.
July 10-17: Monthly Mini Build – Fun Frog (40326)
To reserve a spot, visit your local LEGO® Store starting July 5. This requires getting a bit of being used to since LEGO has dropped the online registration mechanics in favor of an in-store one. What also seems to be puzzling is that the Mini Builds page of LEGO Shop@Home specifically states that the MMB program has been discontinued since April of this year, with only the building instructions published on their page. Personally, I like the idea of having Monthly Mini Builds since a lot of kids (and adults as well) get to bring home free LEGO. We just have to wait and see where these changes will lead us.
July 18-21: Free LEGO City Space Satellite (30365) Polybag
For the entire third week of July, LEGO Stores will be running a promotional that fans will find enticing. The LEGO City Space Satellite (30365) polybag can be yours for free for a minimum single receipt purchase of LEGO products worth $40 USD and above, or while supplies last.
As you can see from this LEGO Store Calendar, the month of July also marks the release of some of the highly anticipated LEGO sets such as the LEGO Jurassic Park: T. rex Rampage (75936) and the latest wave of LEGO Harry Potter 2019 sets. Be sure to drop by at the LEGO brand store nearest you for more details about these promos.
