Last month, we saw that the new LEGO Hidden Side theme will also be getting its first promotional set. We shared several images of the LEGO Hidden Side Newbury Juice Bar (40336) – a still yet to be announced freebie for fans of this new augmented reality sets. Thanks to some insider info shared by The Brick Fan, we now have an idea on when this gift-with-purchase set will be available.
According to a tip received by Allen, it can be expected that the Newbury Juice Bar (40336) will be available in LEGO Stores and online sometime between September 2 to 15 with a minimum, single receipt purchase worth $50 and above. We’re not sure yet if purchases are limited to Hidden Side sets only, or it’s based on any set purchase or LEGO merchandise. My hunch is that it’s limited to purchase of LEGO Hidden Side sets which is the most reasonable way to obtain this freebie.
UPDATE (Aug. 25, 2019): According to a follow-up report by The Brick Fan, it seems that the LEGO Hidden Side Newbury Juice Bar (40336) will be available as a gift-for-purchase set for a minimum single-receipt purchase of ANY LEGO merchandise worth $50 USD and above. This means that this promotional set is not necessarily limited to LEGO Hidden Side purchases. We’ll have to wait until next week to see if this will be the case.
The LEGO Hidden Side Newbury Juice Bar (40336) comes in at 127 pieces and features two minifigures: Parker and a Street Vendor. Like the rest of the Hidden Side sets, the Newbury Juice Bar also comes with a surprisingly fun play feature that allows this innocent-looking juice bar to transform into a monstrous refreshment stand. Hopefully like in the same case of the LEGO Star Wars Mini Droid Commander GWP, we will see more details about this promotional once the LEGO Store September Calendar rolls out.
