Just in case you forget, today is the last day to avail LEGO’s latest LEGO Double VIP points to all sets that are currently on sale. The VIP promo is both available online via LEGO Shop@Home and in-store at your local LEGO brand store.
If you’re familiar with these kinds of promos coming from LEGO, you’re probably aware of the advantages of these exclusive VIP offerings. LEGO Double VIP points allow you to have as much as 10% cashback in your LEGO purchases, giving you some additional bucks to spend on that next LEGO set you’re so much eyeing for.
And if you’re not a LEGO VIP member yet, LEGO is also adding an enticing incentive for first-time registrants. LEGO is giving out the exclusive LEGO VIP Blue Key Chain (854090) for those who will register for the LEGO VIP program throughout the year. And as I’ve mentioned before, there is plenty of gift-with-purchase (GWP) sets that you can also expect from LEGO this July. You have the LEGO Charles Dickens Tribute (40410) promo which also expires today. And the free LEGO Friends Emma’s Magical Box (30414) or LEGO City Skater (30568) polybags, available until July 25 or until supplies last. Check out this month’s LEGO store calendar for more information about this promo’s qualifying purchases. And if by chance you haven’t made up your mind yet about your next LEGO purchase, then perhaps taking a look at some of LEGO’s most recent offerings right here might help. Just in case you need to know, we partner with LEGO by providing affiliate links here on our site. Any purchase that you make via these links helps us keep our blog site up.
So, what LEGO set are you planning to get asap? Let me know in the comments section below.
If you’ve seen this post appear in your feed right now, chances are, you still have a few hours left to take part in LEGO Star Wars May the 4th promos. As of publishing time, the Double VIP points are still up for all LEGO Star Wars purchases, including the Tatooine Homestead (40451) micro-build freebie if your LEGO Star Wars purchase reaches $85 and more. For those who will opt to make their in-store purchases, LEGO is throwing in another promo at a lower price point. For every single-receipt in-store purchase of any LEGO Star Wars products $40 and up, you’ll receive a free Imperial Shuttle (30388) polybag.
However, since this is our last stretch for the LEGO Star Wars May the 4th promo, expect that some of the more premium LEGO sets are already on backorder or sold-out status. This is the case for the popular Helmet Collection and the new UCS R2-D2 (75308) set.
Nevertheless, there is still a ton of LEGO Star Wars sets to choose from, and taking a look over at LEGO Shop@Home might lead you to that one LSW set that you are looking for.
With the recent COVID-19 outbreak confining almost everyone indoors and limiting our movement outside, LEGOLAND saw it fit to offer some of its previously exclusive sets online for the benefit of all LEGO fans. Traditionally, these LEGOLAND exclusive sets are only available for park visitors who opt to bring home the magic of their LEGOLAND experience. Bu this time around, collectors may now have the chance of getting their own limited-edition sets while these theme parks are on temporary closure until April 15.
This is also a way for LEGOLAND to somehow recoup some of their expenses now that they are virtually inoperative. Some of these LEGOLAND exclusive sets, particularly the LEGOLAND Park (40346) are also on a discount so you may want to check this out as well.
And similar to LEGO Shop@Home‘s current promotional, single-receipt purchases at LEGOLAND online retail worth $50 or more will entitle you to a free LEGO Easter Egg (40371). If you wish to avail of these LEGOLAND exclusive sets, just read on and click on the following links below.
The LEGOLAND Driving School is a visitor favorite and now that fun can keep going at home. The set comes with 4 minifigures and accessories including traffic cones, stop signs, traffic lights and even a gas station.
LEGO Shop@Home has been recently updated to include a handful of Triple Force Friday promos that you may find attractive. Aside from the new LEGO sets that are based on the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker film and Disney+’s The Mandalorian, all of which are slated to be officially released on October 4, LEGO is spicing up our next brick purchase with these nice promos.
First off, we have the exclusive gift-with-purchase LEGO Star Wars Battle of Endor 20th Anniversary Edition (40362) set. This GWP set will be automatically added to your cart both in-store and online for a minimum qualifying purchase of LEGO Star Wars products worth $75 USD or more. Expect this freebie to be hugely popular, and with a relatively short window of opportunity to get this 197-piece commemorative brick diorama, I’m pretty sure supplies will run out fast.
Double VIP points are a somewhat regular staple of LEGO promotions. However, what we are excited to know about are which LEGO Star Wars sets will entitle you to those precious double VIP points. And on top of that, LEGO will also offer its usual price cuts on some selected LEGO Star Wars sets from October 4 to 6. Do take note that historically, these heavily discounted LEGO Star Wars sets usually runs out even during the initial hours of Force Friday deals. It will be helpful to keep a close eye on LEGO Shop@Home if you wish to bag that long-awaited LEGO set that you have kept on your radars. I’m not sure as of this moment which LEGO Star Wars sets will carry the Triple Force Friday discounts, but I’m somewhat hoping LEGO will include those larger, hard-to-find sets such as the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192), the LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV (75244) or the LEGO Star Wars UCS Y-Wing Starfighter (75181).
And finally, for those of you who are looking forward to having your Triple Force Friday purchases in-stores, then LEGO has a special treat for all loyal store visitors. An In-Store Make and Take micro build of a Luke Skywalker Timeline will be given away to participants. Like other LEGO Store make and take events, expect that this promo may require pre-registration so be sure to drop by at the nearest LEGO brand store in your area.
Be sure to check back with us for more info on these LEGO Star Wars Triple Force Friday deals. I’ll keep you posted once these promos go live next week.
We’re just counting the days before Triple Force Friday kicks in, and in case you’re planning to head over at Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California or at Disney Springs at Disney World in Orlando, Florida then you may want to pay a visit at the Disney LEGO Stores in these locations on October 3 to 4.
The Disney Parks blog site has announced that in keeping up with the tradition of launching a new Star Wars film and its tie-in merchandise, the LEGO Stores located in the abovementioned Disney parks will be offering an early midnight sale which will include new LEGO Star Wars sets based on the last installment of the Star Wars Skywalker saga The Rise of Skywalker, Disney+’s The Mandalorian series, and a couple of LSW sets based on earlier Star Wars movies. Truth be told, these sets were already made available at some online retailers and were even spotted on store shelves of third-party retailers ahead of their official launch next week. But in case you haven’t made up your mind on that next LEGO Star Wars purchase, then sealing the deal on Triple Force Friday is a great way to earn some exclusive freebies and huge discounts.
Here’s a quick reference to this sales event as mentioned by Disney Parks.
You can join in the conversation on social using Triple #ForceFriday and at in-store retail celebrations around the globe when products set on Oct. 4. Fans in Orlando and Anaheim will be able to experience Oct. 4 midnight shopping at World of Disney at Disney Springs and Downtown Disney. Disney Springs will also feature midnight shopping at the LEGO Store, along with Star Wars-themed food and beverage offerings and a LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon Master Build Event.
So if you have plans of tracking down the latest and hottest Star Wars merchandise at these Disneyland locations then be sure to add the LEGO Stores in these locations to your bucket list. Traditionally, these sales events are quite popular to Star Wars and LEGO fans because of the pretty nice promos that LEGO attaches to it. From October 4 to 6, fans with qualifying LEGO Star Wars purchases of $75 and above will entitle them for a free and exclusive LEGO Star Wars Battle of Endor 20th Anniversary (40362) set.
Other than the new LEGO Star Wars sets that will launch on October 4, LSW fans that are looking for a good bargain will also pleased to know that the majority of currently available LEGO Star Wars sets will be offered at great discounts. We can expect that these discounts will go live as early as midnight of October 3 leading to October 4, and this will be offered across LEGO Stores both in-store and online. Better be quick though, since these discounted LEGO sets can run out pretty quickly. I’ll post some updates as soon as I can once new info comes in so stay tuned.
One of the best sets that ever came out from the LEGO Ideas theme is the LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309). It was a highly sought after set when it was first launched (no pun intended) in June of 2017, and LEGO fans were so into this set that stocks were immediately depleted due to the high demand. If for some reason you are still missing out on the NASA Apollo Saturn V even after 2 years when it was released, then you might be glad to know that Amazon has it on sale right now for as much as 17% off of its original price. This is the lowest price so far for the LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V set, effectively making it less than a hundred dollars.

The LEGO Store September 2019 Calendar is now up online and we can see a handful of promotional events that you may want to catch on with. From Hidden Side goodies to buzzin’ BrickHeadz, there’s a lot to take away from the LEGO Store this month. Let’s break down each of them.
Free LEGO Hidden Side Newbury Juice Bar (40336)
I already reported that this latest freebie from the Hidden Side theme will soon arrive next month, though we haven’t had a clue on the promo mechanics of how to avail it. Thankfully, the LEGO Store September 2019 calendar finally confirms how we can avail the Newbury Juice Bar (40336). Every single-receipt purchase of any LEGO merchandise from equivalent to $50 USD and above entitles you to bring home this freebie. This promotional will run from September 2 to 15, or until supplies last. It was previously thought that this promotional set is only limited to any LEGO Hidden Side purchase, but it’s a good thing that it applies to any LEGO merchandise as well.
Free LEGO Storage Bucket (5005630)
From reversible canvas bags to picnic blankets, LEGO seems intent to provide us an array of outdoor accessories with this next offer. From September 23 to 28, LEGO fans with purchases over $100 USD will receive a free LEGO Storage Bucket (5005630) while supplies last. It’s a great way to bring with your LEGO sets to the park or at the beach for some outdoor fun. Just be sure you don’t mix it up with your snacks.
Free LEGO BrickHeadz Bumble Bee (40270)
I saw this promotional ad appear in my email just a few moments ago, and it’s nice of LEGO of throwing in last year’s seasonal LEGO BrickHeadz Bumble Bee (40270). In case you missed this set, this can be added to your shopping cart for free for any purchase of any LEGO merchandise or set totaling $65 USD and more. This promo began yesterday and will run until September 8 or until supplies last.
In-Store Make and Take Triceratops
It seems that LEGO Stores are still continuing the tradition of offering Monthly Mini Builds, in one form or another. Be sure to visit your local LEGO brand store on September 18 to build your very own Triceratops. Like previous make-and-take events, this building event has limited space and pre-registration is required which will begin on September 5 in stores only. This activity is intended for younger LEGO fans ages 6 to 14, and build dates may vary from store to store so be sure to get in touch with your local brick specialist for more details.
Wanted: Ghost Hunters!
For the entire month of September, from September 2 to October 3, join Professor J.B.’s team and build a ghost-hunting vehicle. While you’re at the LEGO Store, you’ll also get a chance to try the augmented reality (AR) play features that the LEGO Hidden Side sets have to offer.
LEGO Life Meeting: Batman’s 80th Anniversary
Mark your calendars on September 21 because this next LEGO Life meeting is quite a unique one. This month, LEGO Stores will be celebrating Batman’s 80th anniversary with a fun Bat-Vehicle and villain getaway car build. Adult fans also get to try and build their own Bat-Vehicle starting at 3PM. You’ll also get a chance to win a $50 USD LEGO Store gift card by uploading your creation using the LEGO Life app. Be sure to sign-up on September 5 though since this event has limited space as well.
The month of September also marks the general release of the exciting LEGO Disney Train (71044). Featuring LEGO’s latest Powered Up technology, this set comes with its own control hub and motor that can be controlled remotely using the LEGO Powered Up app, in any mobile device. This set comes in at 2,925 pieces and retails for $329.99 USD.
Another set slated to be released on September 1st is the LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319). Taking inspiration from the hit 90s TV show, this building set includes all the main characters from the FRIENDS sitcom including Ross Geller, Rachel Green, Chandler Bing, Monica Geller, Joey Tribbiani, Phoebe Buffay and Gunther.
These were not mentioned in the LEGO Store September 2019 calendar, but be on the lookout for the LEGO Year of the Pig (40186) promotional for every qualifying purchase of the seasonal LEGO Dragon Boat Race (80103). If you recall, the Year of the Pig set was first offered at the start of this year as a New Year seasonal set, and it’s a good thing that its returning as a promotional item once again. The LEGO Star Wars Mini Droid Commander gift-with-purchase set was also missing from the store calendar, but I’m pretty sure that it will pop-up as a freebie anytime soon in September.

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 minifigure-head containers? 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 but unfortunately, there’s no discount made for the Large Boy version, because it’s out of stock.
For the Small versions, it’s the Small 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.
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.
