Another LEGO-Themed Accesory Line on Amazon: Minifigure-Head Storage Containers

First there was the wall hangers shaped like LEGO studs. Then we had the storage boxes and drawers shaped like LEGO bricks. What other household organizers are we going to see LEGO-fied? True to form the answer can be found in Amazon. How about covered containers shaped like minifigure heads?

Indeed, Amazon again has a sale going on for LEGO household organizers, in this case the minifigure-head containers.  They come in two sizes, small and large. Also, depending on size there are two (large) or four (small) variants with different facial expressions. These storage containers each have a removable cover to put stuff inside the head (but it’s not watertight).

Regarding the Amazon discounts for these LEGO head containers, the Large Girl Head’s got the best deal. Normally priced at $35.99, it’s down 35% to only $23.48 now. That’s great; unfortunately there’s no discount made for the Large Boy version, because it’s out of stock.

For the Small versions, it’s the Boy that has the Amazon discount. Formerly $14.69, it’s now only $12.55 thanks to a 15% discount. All LEGO Storage Heads are made of plastic polypropylene without PVC. The Small Head actually can fit its bottom to the top pegs of the LEGO Brick storage boxes. Now that’s compatibility.

Humble Bundle Packs Up to 8 LEGO Games on Steam for $12 Max Bundle Price

IGN’s Humble Bundle has been doing gamers a great favor by making available old game titles in very affordable bundles. The more you pay the more Steam games in a bundle you get, with proceeds going to different charities monthly. Last year they surprised players of obscure LEGO games by briefly making 2014’s “LEGO The Hobbit” a free Steam download.

Now they’re at it again for LEGO titles from WB Interactive and Traveller’s Tales. Humble Bundle’s latest LEGO bundle has eight games in it. Normally, altogether they’re priced at $169. But this bundle offers them all for just $12 total.

How low can they get? And that question’s asked in a positive context. Well, just paying $1 minimum for the bundle gets a Steam gamer “LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4” and “LEGO Batman: The Videogame.”

Pay more however, say, more than $8.43 average, and the bundle will include “LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7,” “LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes” and “The LEGO Movie – Videogame.” Finally, the full $12 will unlock the last three: “LEGO City Undercover,” “LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham” and “LEGO Worlds,” though the last one may not be available in all territories.

This latest LEGO-themed Humble Bundle can be redeemed on Steam still for 12 more days as of this writing. Charitable proceeds from this transaction go this month to Entertainment Software Association Foundation. You can however, choose your own charity here.

Amazon Sale Discounts LEGO Star Wars Clone Scout Walker (75261) 20th Anniversary Edition

With so many LEGO sets having come out during this part of the year, having retailers discounting them is expected. For instance, Target has held sales of several tie-ins for “Avengers: Endgame” premiering this month. Amazon too has its fair share of new or recent LEGO sets at reduced prices.

Now, the global online marketplace has added another new LEGO set to its discount lineup. This is the LEGO Star Wars Clone Scout Walker – 20th Anniversary Edition (75261). This is part of a legacy product lineup released just last week, celebrating two decades of LEGO Star Wars for franchise fans.

While priced at $29.99 over in Shop@Home, Amazon has helpfully done its usual 20% price knockoff on the set. LEGO Star Wars collectors can thus get the Anniversary Scout Walker (75261) for $23.99 on Amazon. It’s a beautifully intense throwback to the Clone Wars saga as rendered in LEGO form.

The LEGO Star Wars Clone Scout Walker – 20th Anniversary Edition (75261) is full of great builds. Aside from the walker itself, there’s also a Separatist war machine and a Kashyyk Wookie gun mount. Minifigures include a Wookie, Kashyyk Clone Trooper, Battle Droid, and a 1999 edition Darth Vader collectible minifig.

Target Online Shopping has Surprise Discounts for Newest LEGO Avengers: Endgame Tie-Ins

As you already know, LEGO Shop@Home already has the tie-ins for MCU’s “Avengers: Endgame” movie listed. Those awesome vehicle and action sets have long had their official images pored over by fans for hints to the movie’s plot. And now they can finally get these sets in the flesh plastic.

But the added listing of the “Endgame” tie-ins isn’t just with Shop@Home, but on all prominent LEGO/toy retail platforms. In particular, Target not only has them online, two of these sets actually have discounts. This is probably one of the earliest sales Target has done for new LEGO sets available for less than a week.

First it was the LEGO Avengers: Endgame War Machine Buster (76124). Then it was followed by the Iron Man Hall of Armor (76125). Third is the Avengers Ultimate Quinjet (76126) that’s a bit mislabeled. These three sets have their prices shaved on Target’s online platform.

To compare, Amazon is offering the War Machine Buster (76124) for $27.99 (to Shop@Home’s $34.99); Hall of Armor (76125) for $47.99 ($59.99); and Ultimate Quinjet (76126, which Target says is a “Spider-Man: Homecoming” tie-in) is at $63.99 to the official price of $79.99 on Shop@Home. Only Target’s Captain America: Outriders Attack (76123) and Avengers Compound Battle (76131) listings are unchanged.

Now that you know, you have a choice on whether to buy full-price from LEGO Shop@Home or discounted on Target (at least the three above). If with the former, at least Ultimate Quinjet (76126) and Avengers Compound Battle (76131) have double-VIP points all April. You decide which bonus is better.

Next LEGO Sets on Sale at Amazon: 2019 Speed Champions Releases

Sometimes we at The Brick Show can’t help but feel that there’s a pattern to how LEGO sets on Amazon are chosen for price discounts. It could be that they’re selected because they’ve been prominently featured in media, even if it’s been weeks or months since their initial release dates.

Looking at the 2019 LEGO Speed Champions sets that are now on sale at Amazon, the best reason we could think of is that one of them warranted a feature article in the latest issue of “Brick Fanatics Magazine” (#4), now available online and in UK/US store shelves by April.

In any case, for the automotive LEGO fans out there that are interested in this year’s offerings for the Speed Champions line, haven’t gotten any of them yet, then this Amazon sale’s a grand opportunity.

  • Ferrari F40 Competizione (75890) – $14.99 14% discount for $12.93
  • Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Race Car (75891) – $14.99 14% discount for $12.93
  • 1967 Mini Cooper S Rally and 2018 Mini John Cooper Works Buggy (75894) – $49.99 20% discount for $39.99

New Amazon Discounts on Latest LEGO Marvel “Spider-Man” Sets

As if to achieve “product synergy” with the 2018 Holiday premiere of “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” LEGO decided on an early release for their 2019 Marvel “Spider-Man” sets. Some of these were also among the first releases of the LEGO “4+” rating that replaced the now-retired “LEGO Junior” product subset.

This March, months after their early arrival, these LEGO Marvel Spider-Man sets are now available at discounted prices through a sale on Amazon. They’re great sets to collect some uncommon Spider-Man related Marvel characters like “Miles Morales” Spider-Man and Spider-Gwen.

Sweet Discount Sale Ongoing for LEGO Ninjago Movie Tie-in, the Destiny’s Bounty (70618) on Amazon and Wal-Mart

“The LEGO Ninjago Movie” back in 2017 wasn’t quite the smash hit as its spinoff predecessor “The LEGO Batman Movie.” How much less for “The LEGO Movie” from 2014? Still, it was a nice source to make new tie-in sets separate from the main LEGO Ninjago line. These sets still remain available to this year.

One of these LEGO Ninjago Movie sets has just been discounted very handsomely at no less than two online shopping platforms. Both Amazon and Wal-Mart have just docked 20% from the regular price of $159.99 from the Destiny’s Bounty (70618).

At $40 off, this LEGO Ninjago Movie tie-in can now be had online at these two sources for $119.99 only. It’s as awesome a bargain for a LEGO purchase as can be. The 2,295 pieces of the Destiny’s Bounty (70618) would come across as 5 cents a brick with both Wal-Mart and Amazon’s sale price.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Destiny’s Bounty set (70618) depicts a vessel used in the film that (old spoiler alert) was used by Master Wu to save his Ninjago students from certain death, after he himself was earlier swept away to “his” demise. It’s a fairly solid LEGO ship model and a popular Ninjago Movie tie-in.

LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Story Book (21315) Discounted in Amazon, Days After “LEGO Fold” Parody Ad

Earlier this week LEGO caused a stir in their corner of social media by “teasing” the LEGO Fold. Tech-heads would realize immediately that the toy brand was parodying the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Fold, which can convert from smartphone to tablet with the “Infinity Flex” feature.

LEGO fans on the other hand would recognize the LEGO Fold as an existing set from the LEGO Ideas line. Indeed, this is the Pop-Up Story Book (21315) that came out in November 2018. One could say that LEGO’s sendup of the Korean electronics giant’s folding phone reignited interest in the Pop-Up Book set. It couldn’t be coincidence that Amazon announced a sale of it.

For the curious, a check on the product listing for the LEGO ideas Pop-Up Book (21315) on Shop@Home would reveal that it remains available for its $69.99 retail price. Amazon just did one better by discounting their set listing 20%.

In other words, those who still haven’t gotten the set can have in for only $55.99 at the Amazon listing. Nobody knows how long this sale will last past the return of the Pop-Up Book (21315) in the spotlight. So if any LEGO collector that hasn’t got it still wants it, then here it is.

The LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Story Book (21315) has a sweet mechanical function to change from book to fairy tale stage. It features two stories: “Little Red Riding-Hood” and “Jack and the Beanstalk,” and includes relevant minifigures plus pieces to create Grandma’s house or the beanstalk.

Exclusive Minifigure for “LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary New Edition” Revealed: Bacta Tank Suit Finn

Print media, as we have talked about before, is one of the integral components of a “complete” LEGO experience. This is most particular when the LEGO material in question is reference books. Thanks to their publishing partnership with UK label Dorling-Kindersley (DK), there’s always been a number of “visual dictionaries” coming out every year, detailing current LEGO product lines from sets to the collectible minifigures.

Well, way back in July of the year before, LEGO and DK announced that the latter’s “LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary” was going to get a new edition. The book originally came out in 2009 and again in 2014 as the “Updated and Expanded” version.

In the same vein as so many LEGO hardbound volumes, the upcoming “LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary New Edition” will come with an exclusive character minifigure. Readers have had their time speculating who it might be all the rest of year 2018; now, Amazon has revealed who that character is.

916lDvOBTDL.jpg

The global online retail giant has added new information and images to their item listing for the new visual dictionary. For a brief period, their shot of the front cover showed the included minifigure to be First Order trooper-turned-Resistance fighter Finn, suited in the bacta tank as seen in his first appearance in “The Last Jedi,” healing from his injuries sustained during “The Force Awakens.”

Amazon must have realized that the cover photo was a spoiler, and has since replaced it with a blacked-out minifigure version. Thankfully other LEGO news sources have caught it before the change; this image down below is courtesy of Brickset.

Finn Bacta

Quite obviously, the additional content added to the “LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary New Edition” covers the new Disney-Lucasfilm media: “The Force Awakens,” “The Last Jedi,” and even “Solo.” The volume will be released this coming April, but an Amazon preorder now will shave 33% off the $14.71 price listed.
