Check Out the LEGO Store September 2018 Calendar

The LEGO Store September 2018 Calendar is now available online, and it comes with a handful of LEGO Harry Potter and Friends promotionals, plus a plethora of new LEGO sets to watch out for. I am particularly interested on what exclusive VIP sets will be offered from September 13-30, which, as rumor has it, will be the LEGO Star Wars Cloud City UCS (75222). Fans of the LEGO Star Wars theme have always felt that this is one long overdue set so it is kind of exciting to see what LEGO has in the works on this one. The other exclusive LEGO VIP set is a complete mystery, and as always LEGO will be most likely keeping us guessing until the end of this month.

For the time being, let’s break down the details of the LEGO Store September 2018 Calendar and see what we can find.

First Product Listing and Release Date for LEGO Harry Potter Minifigure Series (71022) Found in Germany

With a new cinematic installment of the Wizarding World franchise by J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros. coming towards the end of the year, the marketing has been building up to full steam these past months. Bits and pieces of news have been given throughout that time like many puzzle pieces.

For instance, the June-December 2018 LEGO Catalog (US version) dropped little hints of what could well be a new series of LEGO Harry Potter collectible minifigures, set number 71022. That does dovetail into the impending release of the LEGO Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts sets, coming much earlier in July.

At last however, we have more information, thanks to happenings over in the European LEGO markets that have been caught by Promo Bricks. While there’s no official announcement from the manufacturer yet, the LEGO Harry Potter Minifigure Series 1 (71022) has been listed on online LEGO stock store JB Spielwaren.

Said online listing of 71022 also includes a release date (at least for the German market): they’re getting it on September 28, with JB Spielwaren discounting the €3.99 retail price to €3.39 (that’s $4.63, then $3.94). As denoted by the “Series 1” tag, minifigure set 71022 is the first of a set, with its 22 minifigures later to be added up to 60 in total.

While we wait to see how the US LEGO market follows up with its German counterpart, we can be assured that the other LEGO Harry Potter sets are coming early on July 1; others will arrive on August 1. Finally, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will continue the early-20th Century adventures of wizard magi-zoologist Newt Scamander on November 16.
