Here’s a Look at What’s Happening at LEGO Stores This August

LEGO Stores

As you may have noticed, there has been a lot of changes with the way LEGO has promoting it’s content and product line-up during these past months, and one of these is the way it delivers info regarding the happenings inside our local LEGO stores. For starters, we all know that the monthly LEGO Store Calendar as we know it has gone through an overhaul, with the digital copy of the calendar only made available at the start of each month.

As such, most fans now need to be quick on spotting LEGO store promos especially those that tend to be offered on a very limited time period. And I guess this is exactly the case with this month’s LEGO Store promos. I have to admit that this may not be new for most of our readers but still, it may be helpful for some who are looking for the best promos this month at their nearby LEGO stores. Just click on the following images to see the LEGO Store August Calendar up-close, or you may opt to download it as a PDF copy.

Free Baby Velociraptor Playpen

This promotional polybag comes free with LEGO Jurassic World purchases worth $35 and above. You have to be quick though because this LEGO Jurassic World Baby Velociraptor Playpen (30382) polybag will only be available until August 7, 2019.

Free Mia’s Water Fun Pack

Unfortunately, this promo is long over as of posting time. The LEGO Friends Mia’s Water Fun (30410) polybag were only available for a day (August 4, 2019) for a minimum single-receipt purchase of any LEGO merchandise worth $35 and above.

Free Reversible Tote Bag for LEGO VIPs

From August 1 to 14, LEGO VIP members with LEGO purchases equal to $200 and more are entitled to a free LEGO Reversible Canvas Bag (5005910) to help you carry your latest LEGO haul. This promo is not new actually since a different version of this tote bag was offered to the general public back in June and November of 2017.

Build a Mini Harley-Davidson Motorcycle and Take It Home for Free

LEGO Harley-Davidson Mini-Build

I reckon that this is the most appealing promotional offered for this month. This make-and-take building event is slated in LEGO stores just for one day on August 6, so better expect this to be gone really fast. This mini-build of the iconic Harley-Davidson bike has made its appearance in places like in Germany and China and takes its cue from its larger cousin, the recently released LEGO Creator Expert Harley-Davidson Fat Boy (10269). Do take note that this building event requires pre-registration (which already started last August 1) at your local LEGO store. You must also be age 18 and above to participate.

Ice Cream Truck Building Event

For younger LEGO builders, the LEGO Store is the place to be on August 14 and 20. Children ages 6 to 14 can pre-register to have the chance of building and bringing home this excellent Ice Cream Truck model. Though LEGO didn’t mention specifically that this model is similar to the now practically discontinued Monthly Mini Build promos, the way it works seems to be similar.

Live In-Store LEGO Lab Demos

Throughout the whole month of August, LEGO will be introducing a new hands-on concept to fans and first time LEGO Store visitors. Dubbed as LEGO Lab, LEGO Stores will now have live demonstrations of its latest LEGO sets especially those that feature breakthrough technologies, robotics, and new interactive Powered-Up sets. This includes sets that most likely include the new augmented-reality technology as featured in the LEGO Hidden Side theme and those from new Technic sets that feature the Power-Up technology such as the 4×4 X-Treme Off-Roader (42099).

Other than these activities happening or slated to happen in LEGO Stores, this month also marks the launch of new LEGO sets such as LEGO Architecture Empire State Building (21046), LEGO Hidden Side Newbury Haunted High School (70425), and the entire range of LEGO Jurassic World Legend of Isla Nublar sets including the largest among the four, the T. rex vs Dino Mech Battle (75938).
