On September 23 and 24, visitors of these LEGO-themed parks will be treated with weekend full of epic games and activities that only LEGOLAND can deliver. Dubbed as LEGO Ninjago Days, families will experience a whole new level fun activities including The LEGO Ninjago Movie character meet and greets, a mystery mosaic build, miniland scavenger hunt (with a cool LEGO mystery prize at stake), and a Family GameSpace featuring The LEGO Ninjago Movie Video Game to name a few.

Here’s LEGOLAND’s official press release.

LEGOLAND® California Resort and LEGOLAND® Discovery Centers Celebrate the Release of THE LEGO® NINJAGO® MOVIE With LEGO NINJAGO Days!

Guests Explore Their Inner Ninja on Select Dates

Join your favorite ninja – Lloyd, Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane and Nya – during LEGO® NINJAGO® Days at LEGOLAND® California Resort and LEGOLAND® Discovery Centers in celebration of the Sept. 22 opening of the all-new, big screen animated adventure THE LEGO® NINJAGO®MOVIE, from Warner Bros. Pictures, in theaters nationwide on September 22nd.

The latest in the Warner Bros. Pictures LEGO franchise, “The LEGO NINJAGO Movie” stars Dave Franco, Justin Theroux, Fred Armisen, Abbi Jacobson, Olivia Munn, Kumail Nanjiani, Michael Peña, Zach Woods, and the legendary Jackie Chan, as the battle for NINJAGO City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret ninja warriors. Led by Master Wu, as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon, The Worst Guy Ever, who also happens to be Lloyd’s dad. Pitting mech against mech and father against son, the epic showdown will test this fierce but undisciplined team of modern-day ninjas who must learn to pull together to unleash their inner power.

In the spirit of this highly anticipated film, LEGO NINJAGO Days is creating epic fun for kids and families throughout the weekends with a themed scavenger hunt, ninja skills challenge, LEGO build activities and so much more! Guests will also have the opportunity to win prizes and attend a meet and greet with Kai, the Fire Ninja, and other characters from The LEGO NINJAGO Movie.

Included with admission to each LEGOLAND attraction, The LEGO NINJAGO Days will vary at each location but at LEGOLAND California, guests can master new skills and upgrade their weapons in training to find their inner ninja in the WB Family GameSpace, featuring The LEGO NINJAGO Movie Video Game!

LEGO Store October Calendar Now Up!

The LEGO Store October Calendar has been released, and taking the spotlight is this year’s highly celebrated, and largest LEGO set of all time. Starting October 1, the LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon (75192) will be available to the general public both at LEGO Stores and shop.LEGO.com. This and much more will be happening throughout the month of October so let’s check it out.

October 1: Own the largest LEGO set ever produced – The LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)!

VIP members may have an early start beginning September 14, but the rest of the world and legions of LEGO Star Wars fans may now have the chance to have their own LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium (75192). Retailing at $800, the largest LEGO set to date comes in at 7,541 pieces and comes in two modes of play features: you can either play out classic LEGO Star Wars adventures with Han, Leia, Chewbacca and C-3PO, or enter the world of Episode VII and VIII with older Han, Rey, Finn and BB-8!

September 22 – October 8: Free The LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd (30609) minifigure polybag with a purchase of $50 or more, while supplies last.

First discovered on eBay a few weeks ago, this free exclusive minifigure comes with a unique printed torso, and a new tasseled sword piece.

October 1-31: Free LEGO Friends Keepsake Box (40266) with a LEGO Friends purchase of $25 or more, while supplies last.

The LEGO Friends Keepsake or Storage Box (40266) comes in at 105 pieces and actually functions as its name suggests. It sports two compartments: a covered, top compartment and a sliding drawer in front. It’s a pretty neat and functional build if I should say so, and comes at a relatively lower price point compared to other promotionals.

October 3-4: Free VIP Monthly Mini Model Build which is a Robot (40248)

To reserve your spot, simply register for the October MMB by visiting shop.LEGO.com/Minibuild-Registration starting September 15. The LEGO MMB is meant for children ages 6 to 14, and must be completely built in store.

October 10-25: VIP members get a Free exclusive VIP Set (40178) with a purchase of $125 or more, while supplies last. Also during this time, you get Double VIP points on all items.

If you recall, we first spotted this exclusive VIP set as a promotional in LEGO Store Shanghai in China back in July. It was given away then to all VIP customers with a minimum single receipt purchase worth 399 CNY and above. Thankfully, this dragon-inspired build is now available to all LEGO VIP members in the US for a minimum purchase of $125 worth of LEGO products. It seems to be a pretty nice set, especially with regards to the creative rendition of the Pick A-Brick Wall, LEGO box sets (though it uses stickers), and the collectible LEGO Store employee minifigure. As an added treat, all LEGO VIP members may once more take advantage of the Double VIP points promotional during this time.

October 14: Halloween Themed Building Event – Build Your Own Witch (40070).

Sign up to build and take home your very own Halloween-themed Witch model based on October 2013’s Monthly Mini Build which comes in at 22 pieces. Similar to the MMBs, in-store participation is limited to children ages 6 to 14, and registration will be on a first come, first serve basis due to its limited quantities.

As a last note, it’s good to know that the recently discovered LEGO BrickHeadz The LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd (41487) set will be available for purchase at all LEGO Stores in October.

First spotted as a Toys R Us exclusive, the LEGO BrickHeadz Lloyd set is also paired with a Master Wu (41488) BrickHeadz set both of which will retail for $9.99 each. We don’t have a definite date of release as of the moment as far as LEGO Stores are concerned, though the ones announced by TRU will be available starting October 1.

 

The LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) Has Landed In LEGO Stores Worldwide!

Now that the veil has been officially lifted, the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) is now on hyperdrive, making its presence felt all across LEGO Stores worldwide. Available for an early VIP access from September 14 to 30, and to the general public starting October 1st, LEGO Stores across the globe has flaunted this 7,541-piece set for everyone’s enjoyment. Here’s a few of its sightings as shared by fans across social media.

To mark its debut, LEGO Stores in the US gave away several premium LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) brochures, as reported by The Brick Fan. According to Allen, the tri-fold brochure itself is a fitting testament to the grandiosity of the Falcon, with the brochure itself being made of high quality paper. The cover sports the Falcon’s exterior, while the contents shows the workings of its brick-built interiors and the different minifigures that goes along with it. As an added trivia, the brochure also reveals that the building instructions for the UCS MF will consist of 496 pages bound in a spiral booklet. As expected, some folks would like to see this as an aftermarket opportunity where they even posted these premium brochures for sale over at eBay.

The LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) will retail for $799.99 in the US, exclusively available in all LEGO Stores and at shop.LEGO.com.

Check Out the Official Images and Building Instructions of the LEGO Architecture LEGO House 21037.

The LEGO House in Billund, Denmark is scheduled to open to the public on September 28, and to commemorate the occasion, LEGO has officially revealed its next Architecture set dedicated to the House of the Brick. Initially listed at the LEGO Architecture website, the latest LEGO Architecture LEGO House (21307) set is a marked improvement of the LEGO House (4000010) which was made available in LEGO Billund stores in 2014. Thanks to Promo Bricks, we now have these official images before it was eventually removed from the LEGO Architecture website.

The LEGO House (21307) is a fairly straightforward build. Its building instructions are available online which you may download right here. See if you have the parts needed to build your own LEGO House using the parts list below as your reference. Save for the printed tile piece that bears the name of the LEGO House, and the exact color of some of the tile pieces, most of its parts are readily available.

As of now, what we do know is that the  LEGO Architecture LEGO House (21307) is exclusively available only at the LEGO House gift shop in Billund, Denmark and will be released to coincide with the opening of the actual LEGO House on September 28. Here’s a rough Google translation of the official product description for the LEGO Architecture LEGO House (21307).

LEGO Architecture LEGO House (21307)





This fascinating model of the LEGO® house stands for creativity and innovation and is a tribute to the most popular building block in the world. This huge experience center in Billund (Denmark) offers lots of activities for the visitors and LEGO fans of all ages and is the perfect place to learn playfully and be captivated by the ultimate LEGO experience. This extremely detailed model perfectly reflects the striking and imaginative architecture of the building. It houses 21 unique, interlocked rooms in LEGO stone form, has transparent facades to flood the entire building with daylight, and has a multi-colored roof, roof terraces and a huge exterior staircase. When you remove the LEGO stone-shaped main axle segment, you get access to the main hall with the grand staircase and the LEGO tree of creativity.

LEGOLAND® California Resort Is Getting Ready for Its Biggest Ride Investment Ever In 2018!

LEGOLAND California Resort is prepping up for its biggest reveal this week, particularly about its new LEGOLAND Castle Hotel and the announcement of grander attractions this year. Dubbed as the “biggest ride investment in LEGOLAND Parks history”, this latest innovation is said to combine dazzling 3D computer animation with “4D,” real-world effects.

LEGOLAND California Resort General Manager Peter Ronchetti is a little bit shy on the details, but what we do know is that the new LEGOLAND Castle Hotel, with its latest rides and attractions will be on an exemplary grand scale, and is expected to have a significant, positive influence and economic impact to the local Carlsbad community. First revealed during the early part of this year, the LEGOLAND Castle Hotel is said to have “250 themed rooms, including 20 suites, completely immersing guests into a castle experience from the minute they enter the grand hall, to dining in an amazing sit down royal restaurant to engaging in courtyard entertainment by the pool”, according to Ronchetti.

We don’t have any images yet, especially about the exciting, new rides slated to be operational in the summer of 2018, but we’ll keep you posted once these things are officially announced by LEGOLAND California within the week.
