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.

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.

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.

Amazon Discounts LEGO Overwatch Sets, Plus Hilarious Official Tribute Video

Ask fans who keep up to speed with LEGO news which new licensed property that they make sets for now stands out the most, and maybe they’ say it’s “Overwatch,” the awesome multiplayer first-person “hero” shooter from Blizzard Entertainment. The new sets they announced last year, now all available for purchase at the usual channels, have been remarkably popular sellers.

In fact, they’re so sought-after that certain retailers carrying them have thrown discount sales for their LEGO Overwatch sets. Amazon in particular has decided that it’ll join in on the fun, with the recent release of a new patch that adds Paris as a multiplayer assault map on the game.

You can check out Amazon’s LEGO Overwatch price cuts right here, but we’ll help out by enumerating the current discount rates for the available sets right now. Some of the products might have already had reduced prices before, but have been trimmed even further now:

  • Tracer vs. Widowmaker (75970) – 129-piece set for US$12, down from $14.99
  • Hanzo vs. Genji (75971) – 197-piece set for US$15.51, down from $15.99
  • Dorado Showdown (75972) – 419-piece set for US$23.99

  • Omnic Bastion (75987) – 182-piece set for $35, all the way down from $51

With that down, we’ll leave you guys with this quirky LEGO Overwatch video from the company itself on their official YouTube channel. If you need further confirmation that the “Overwatch” game is big, and the LEGO Overwatch line of sets is hot, then watch this video and believe.

Kind of makes you want a “LEGO Overwatch Movie/Series,” huh?

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Discounts at Walmart

With just over a week left before Christmas, holiday shopping is at fever pitch by now, and some retailers are throwing sales and discounts out to the public in order to attract crowds of bargain hunters. Of course, that includes LEGO sets being given juicy sale prices by major retailers, particularly LEGO Marvel Superheroes discounts over at retail store giant Walmart.

These particular LEGO Marvel Superheroes discounts offered by Walmart, one from this year and the other from 2017, are the Beware the Vulture (76083) and Quantum Realm Explorers (76109). Both of these being set tie-ins to MCU films Spider-Man: Homecoming and Ant-Man and the Wasp respectively.

In comparison, LEGO Marvel Superheroes Beware the Vulture (76083) sees its $39.99 retail price cut by 42% to $22.99 while the Quantum Realm Explorers set (76109) goes from $19.87 to $13.99 (30%). The latter is touted to be the lowest discount rate that has been offered for this MCU Ant-Man tie-in.

By the way, the Beware the Vulture set (76083) available at Walmart comes with a free, 2-day shipping attached to it as well, seeing perhaps how long it’s been on shelves by now.

Digital Videogame Store Humble Bundle Offers LEGO The Hobbit for Free

UPDATE (01/08/2019): Apparently, several news sources have been reporting that both LEGO Lord of the Rings and LEGO The Hobbit video games were now removed as well from popular PC gaming platform Steam. There’s no official word from LEGO or WB Interactive regarding this removal, but we can only speculate that this may have something to do with unresolved copyright issues.

———————————————————–

There have been so many franchises that have been licensed with LEGO to become toy sets and other media like video games, that it’s sometimes hard to keep track of them all. Some even fade into relative obscurity years after release. For instance, WB Interactive and Traveller’s Tales’ LEGO The Hobbit that came out in 2014.

For those LEGO gamers who are also fans of Tolkien’s fantasy universe – and their cinematic adaptations by Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema – there’s a unique limited-time opportunity being given by digital videogame store Humble Bundle, where they’re offering LEGO The Hobbit on Steam…absolutely free!

This free copy of LEGO The Hobbit on Humble Bundle is only available until Saturday, December 15, ending at 10 AM PST. Interested parties availing of this offer on Humble Bundle will receive a code by email, which can be redeemed on Steam until December 20, by 10 AM PST.

LEGO The Hobbit, much like other licensed LEGO games from WB Interactive and Traveller’s Tales, is a video game adaptation of the events from the first two Hobbit films, An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug. It’s also notable for having a planned – but canceled – DLC expansion based on the then-unreleased third Hobbit movie, The Battle of the Five Armies.

A subsidiary of IGN, Humble Bundle offers some great prices for games in digital format, a portion of which is given to a number of charities partnered with the store. LOTR and Hobbit fans should take advantage of this offer.

Just the purchase of any one of these LEGO Technic sets mentioned above will be enough to get the seasonal LEGO Christmas Carousel set (40293), which goes with the minimum purchase price of £85. This seems to be the first Shop@Home to definitely tell how 40293 will be available for the Holidays, as Shop@Home US hasn’t announced anything yet.

Missed LEGO’s Black Friday Deal for Retiring Ideas Set Old Fishing Store (21310)? Amazon Still Has Sale for It

November 23 – Black Friday 2018 – has come and gone, though some of the sales and discounts may have carried over the weekend. LEGO certainly took advantage of that fact by offering great prices for a selection of sets that have been announced for retirement by next year, jumping up interest.

One such retiring set given the spotlight during Black Friday on Shop@Home was the LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310). The price cut wasn’t only welcome; it was still large enough to qualify for a free LEGO Christmas Gift Box (40292) by itself. Too bad it was just one day.

By now, the Old Fishing Store (21310) is marked as sold out on LEGO Shop@Home, and with the retirement announcement done we can’t be sure if it’ll be restocked over there. Fortunately there are other places to look for it, like Amazon. They’re also offering nice price cuts for it.

With a 23% off courtesy of Amazon, the LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310) can be had for just about $114.99 over there. Granted, it doesn’t come with a free Christmas Gift Box (40292); but when you’re racing against time to get one before its retirement becomes effective with “sold-out” listings, then you’ve got to get it when you can.
