LEGO Ideas Sailboat Adventure (40487) Now Up As A Gift-With-Purchase Set

Just in case you missed it, the August 2021 LEGO Store Calendar has been released, giving us a closer look at this month’s uber-exclusive gift-with-purchase (GWP) set in the form of the LEGO Ideas Sailboat Adventure (40487).

If you recall, the Sailboat Adventure (40487) is the overall winner of the LEGO Ideas Build That Holiday contest from last year giving it the privilege of becoming the next fan-inspired promotional set following the likes of the LEGO Ideas Vintage Car (40448) and the still to be revealed LEGO Ideas The Adventures of the USS Cardboard.

I have to say that the set comes with a hefty price point, but considering how substantially large this is at more than 300 pieces, plus the figures that go with it, I guess it still has great value for money.

The LEGO Ideas Sailboat Adventure (40487) is available for an early release for LEGO VIPs from August 1 to 3, and general availability to all (while stocks last of course) from August 4 to 29.  Just in case you got yours already, be kind to share your general impressions of this set in the comments section below.

LEGO Super Mario Peach’s Castle (71395) Rumored to be the Next D2C Set

Word from brick street is that the highly successful LEGO Super Mario theme is getting its next direct-to-consumer (D2C) following the likes of the LEGO Super Mario Nintendo Entertainment System (71374). According to several reliable sources, we can expect the arrival of the LEGO Super Mario Peach’s Castle (71395) in the last quarter of this year, with speculations of its arrival reinforced by an unlikely source.

As noted by German LEGO fan site Stone Wars, the possibility of another castle-themed LEGO set is further hinted upon by a new LEGO piece that is made available via LEGO’s Replacement Parts services. Element 6152409 or a white version of the 1×2 White Masonry Brick (98283) has been listed on the said service.

The LEGO Replacement Parts Service lists element 6152409, a white variant of the masonry brick 98283.

Prior to this listing, however, there has been a rumor going around LEGO fan communities that a new LEGO Super Mario set is in the works, and it will feature another iconic castle from the Super Mario universe. But unlike other large sets under the theme such as the Bowser’s Castle Boss Battle (71369) set, this upcoming D2C set is not strictly a part of the theme’s expansion sets but more like the brick-built Nintendo Entertainment System (71374).  The discovery of the new 1×2 White Masonry brick gives further credence to the rumor of a Peach’s Castle set considering that the set follows a white and red color scheme made up mostly of masonry bricks. Though it’s not the actual set, a LEGO MOC created by Instagram user s.cossy might give us an idea of how this D2C set might turn out.

I know that this is speculative as of the moment, and details of this possible set are scant as of the moment. But what we do know as of this point is that the LEGO Super Mario Peach’s Castle (71395) is expected to retail for € 169.99 as per Price Vortex making it the 2nd most expensive set under the theme, just a notch lower than the LEGO Super Mario NES. We can also guess that it will most probably clock in at around 1,500 to 2,000 pieces given this price point.

Like any other rumors, it is wise to consider this with a grain of salt, and let’s just hope that LEGO will make an announcement any time soon.

LEGO Now Offers Its Monthly Mini Builds via LEGO Shop@Home

LEGO’s online store in the UK has started to roll out some of LEGO’s Monthly Mini Builds from last year. If you recall, these monthly mini builds were officially discontinued in April of 2019, with the onslaught of the pandemic providing the final nail on the coffin of its discontinuation. It has been a monthly promotional mainstay of all LEGO brand stores, with a new model offered every month. The building instructions for these sets are still available via LEGO’s Customer Service Portal in case younger LEGO fans would still like to build them.

However, in a rather welcomed surprise, the UK LEGO online store has now listed two of these monthly mini builds from last year and is now available for purchase for those who missed out on the series. As of this posting, the LEGO Easter Bunny (40398) and Flowers and Watering Can (40399) are available over UK’s LEGO Shop@Home for £2.49 or roughly $3.50 each. Now I’m not sure about the reasons behind its return as an item for sale, but my best guess is that LEGO might be trying to sell surplus items that it kept around for some occasional in-store promotions. But since the pandemic virtually prevented or discouraged physical interactions outside of our homes, then perhaps these monthly mini builds are surplus items that LEGO is looking forward to selling off. On the other hand, it could also mean that LEGO is sincerely looking forward to offering these sets especially to a younger generation of LEGO fans. Needless to say, these sets are a great way of introducing LEGO building to younger kids if you’re on a tight budget.

As of today, these LEGO Monthly Mini Builds are currently offered only in the UK and Europe, and we just have to wait and see if they will find their way via the US LEGO Online Store. Here are more details about these current offerings as seen from the online shopping portal. Thanks to Brick Fanatics for the tip.

So, what LEGO set are you planning to get asap? Let me know in the comments section below.

LEGO Harry Potter Hermione’s Study Desk (30392) Polybag Surfaces

The LEGO Customer Service portal has been updated to include a new set of building instructions pointing towards a new LEGO Harry Potter polybag. A LEGO Harry Potter Hermione’s Study Desk (30392) polybag has now surfaced, thanks to the said entry listed over at LEGO.com.

LEGO Harry Potter Hermione's Study Desk

To be exact, the building instructions for this new polybag offering are not actually uploaded yet. Instead, a set placeholder and product image is now made available on the portal. The new polybag features Hermione in her early years at Hogwarts, featuring what seems to be a new minifigure torso print. Aside from the miniature study table and accessories, it’s nice to see that LEGO is also throwing in a collectible Wizard Card tile piece that they began introducing with this year’s LEGO Harry Potter 20th Anniversary Commemorative sets. This is a more cost-effective way of gathering these special tiles if you’re the completionist kind of LEGO collector.

Details are scant with regards to this polybag. However, my best guess is that this LEGO Harry Potter Hermione’s Study Desk polybag might be available as a promotional item or gift-with-purchase set sometime in September. If you recall, it was also around this time last year when LEGO offered a similar freebie in the form of the Harry Potter and Hedwig Owl Delivery (30420) polybag.

I’ll keep you posted once more information comes in, so be sure to bookmark our page for future updates.
