Do also take note that this July marks the beginning of Double VIP points and if you live somewhere in the UK, you may want to take advantage of their promotional polybags as well. Check out this collection of new LEGO 2019 sets now made available at LEGO Shop@Home, including those from licensed themes such as Harry Potter, Jurassic Park, Minecraft and Star Wars.

Other than the sweet Double VIP points offered by LEGO at the start of this month, a host of new sets are now also made available both in-store and at shop.LEGO.com. One of these sets also shows LEGO’s first steps in removing regional restrictions, particularly with its LEGO Dragon Boat Race (80103) set. If you recall, this set first appeared as a regional exclusive last May 1, offered in several countries in the Asia Pacific region. After the announcement of giving global access to this once regional exclusive set, LEGO was true to its word of offering to the rest of the global LEGO fandom after three months from its initial release in the area.
This time around, LEGO Shop@Home now lists this set in its database, offering it to LEGO fans all over the world. Just click on the link below and read on for the complete product description for the LEGO Dragon Boat Race (80103). This set is expected to sell for $49.99 in the US, coming in at almost 700 pieces.

As of this posting, it seems that that the gift with purchase LEGO Ideas Space Rocket Ride (40335) is still available. However, bear in mind that this promo might as well be over soon but if you see this appear in your shopping cart, then there is a good chance that you might still get one of this.
The UK LEGO Shop@Home portal lists both these new LEGO polybag promotional items as available from July 1 to 14 or until supplies last. Bundle this with LEGO’s ongoing Double VIP points promo then this is one great offer that’s hard to resist.

After a bit of a slip-up from Amazon UK regarding the two, upcoming 2019 LEGO Overwatch sets (they’re listing were eventually taken down from their site), LEGO has now released the official product descriptions for both LEGO Overwatch Wrecking Ball (75976) and Junkrat and Roadhog (75977). I guess the cat is out of the bag already, so to speak. Read on for these sets’ full product descriptions. As a side note, BZ Power reports that LEGO will be hosting a Twitch Rivals Overwatch tournament on July 25, with a special prize provided to the winner. A brick built Overwatch trophy or statue for the winner will be nice.

In the tradition of San Diego Comic-Con’s LEGO exclusives, LEGO has now revealed this year’s first minifigure to be made available to participants. The LEGO Marvel Spider-Man AdvancedSuit takes its cue from 2018’s hit Playstation 4 video game, Spider-Man.
We can assume that SDCC 2019 attendees will have access to this LEGO minifig exclusive via the same electronic raffle/system as in previous years. Furthermore, according to info coming from Allen (aka The Brick Fan), there will also be a randomized instant-win raffle event where Comic-Con attendees can get a chance to win this LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Advanced Suit exclusive.
To be frank, I’m still hoping that The LEGO Group will still consider having Comic-Con LEGO exclusives such as this, be available to other LEGO fans who cannot attend these kinds of conventions for obvious geographical reasons. Perhaps LEGO can give a thought on how to make these minifigs available to the general public after a certain number of months. This will also somehow discourage scalpers for charging a ridiculous amount for this SDCC LEGO exclusives over at eBay.
Anyways, if you’re into this kind of LEGO collectibles, then be sure to bookmark and check back with us again as more info comes out regarding the details of how to avail of this minifig. I also expect additional LEGO SDCC 2019 minifigures to be revealed anytime soon.
As initially announced by Gizmodo, the set comes in at 482 pieces and will include two Chitauri minifigures, Black Widow in her time heist suit, and an Infinity Gauntlet-wielding Professor Hulk, and Pepper Potts in her Rescue armor. The central build of this set is the Avengers Helicopter, which to be quite honest and nitpicking does not fit in that entire Endgame scene. But perhaps the biggest question is, as Gizmodo pointed out, is LEGO’s call of including Nat in this particular set considering that Bruce Banner already has the Infinity Gauntlet together with the Soul Stone attached to it. Spoiler alert: if you haven’t seen the movie until now (seriously?), then you wouldn’t want to know why is it so.
Well, LEGO does not really have the reputation of being completely movie-accurate with regards to rendering MCU films into sets. Nevertheless, if you’re a LEGO Marvel MCU completionist, then its nice to have that Rescue armor around. The LEGO Marvel Avengers Hulk Helicopter Drop (76144) is expected to retail for $60 and will be available in US stores beginning November 25. Check out the rest of its official images and product description courtesy of Brick Fanatics.
LEGO Marvel Avengers Hulk Helicopter Drop (76144)
Team up with the Avengers in an epic aerial battle against the Chitauri soldiers! Launch the helicopter with Rescue and fire the triple stud shooters at the mighty Leviathan. Dodge the Chitauri flyer’s stud shooters. Surprise the enemy by dropping the mighty Hulk into battle. Then attack with Rescue’s Power Blasts and Black Widow’s batons. Who will win this LEGO Marvel Avengers Endgame? You decide!
LEGO is pushing through with its plans of going entirely digital now that the July 2019 LEGO Store Calendar has been released online. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what’s in store for LEGO fans next month.
July 1-31: Weekly Building Challenges
Starting every Monday of July, your local LEGO store will feature space-themed building challenges where participants may have their brick creations put on display. I’m not quite sure if registration is required but I guess the calendar implies that walk-ins are also accepted.
July 12-14: It’s Christmas in July!
This is quite interesting since this promo is available only on weekends, and the calendar did not exactly specify what could be the exclusive offer. However, since this portion of this advert mentions that the offer is valid until supplies last, I am assuming that the set to be given away is the limited edition 2018 holiday gift-with-purchase set, Christmas Gift Box (40292). This is a gorgeous set filled with hidden surprises, so if you missed out on this one, be sure to drop by your local LEGO Store during this 3-day promo event.
July 10-17: Monthly Mini Build – Fun Frog (40326)
To reserve a spot, visit your local LEGO® Store starting July 5. This requires getting a bit of being used to since LEGO has dropped the online registration mechanics in favor of an in-store one. What also seems to be puzzling is that the Mini Builds page of LEGO Shop@Home specifically states that the MMB program has been discontinued since April of this year, with only the building instructions published on their page. Personally, I like the idea of having Monthly Mini Builds since a lot of kids (and adults as well) get to bring home free LEGO. We just have to wait and see where these changes will lead us.
July 18-21: Free LEGO City Space Satellite (30365) Polybag
For the entire third week of July, LEGO Stores will be running a promotional that fans will find enticing. The LEGO City Space Satellite (30365) polybag can be yours for free for a minimum single receipt purchase of LEGO products worth $40 USD and above, or while supplies last.
Barnes & Noble stores will be running a Make and Take building event on July 13 as promoted over at their website. LEGO fans who missed out on Indigo/Chapters Bookstore’s LEGO promotional building event in Canada last October will be glad to know that B&N will be running their own promo with a slightly upgraded LEGO Harry Potter Golden Snitch freebie.
Expect more info will come in as we approach the end of this month, especially if this event requires pre-registration. While waiting, you may want to check out Rebrickable’s version of this LEGO Harry Potter Golden Snitch and see if you have the parts needed to build it. There are no building instructions included but I guess its relatively easy considering that it only comes in at 35 pieces. Take note that this version was the one given away in Indigo Bookstores in Canada.
Be sure to check out the rest of LEGO Harry Potter summer 2019 sets that are both available at Barnes & Noble and at LEGO Shop@Home in July. Just click on the following links below to bring you at LEGO’s online shopping portal for each particular set. Thanks to The Brick Fan for the heads up.
The LEGO Harry Potter Summer 2019 wave of sets are still slated to be released on July 1, and its good to know that Barnes & Noble will also be adding these sets on their shelves by then. According to their blogsite, these latest LEGO sets will also be arriving in their stores as well.
Build the magic & relive the adventure! Bring Harry Potter moments to life with these new LEGO® sets, exclusively at Barnes & Noble 7/1 – 7/31!
For the meantime, Barnes & Noble’s announcement may also suggest that these sets are available only for a limited time, or until supplies last. You may keep tabs with their online store portal or alternatively, you may also check with shop.LEGO.com once the LEGO Harry Potter summer 2019 sets are available on July 1st. You may click on the following links below to know more about these sets.
