Plan Your LEGO Holiday Shopping With the LEGO Store November Calendar!

Time to plan your LEGO holiday shopping, especially that the LEGO Store November Calendar is now up. Get a chance to earn double VIP points and exclusive freebies on Black Friday offers, plus The LEGO Batman Movie gets its own D2C set with the wacky and colorful Joker Manor (70922). Here are the details of next month’s LEGO Store highlights and offers.

November 1-15: FREE 24-in-1 Holiday Countdown Set (40253) with a purchase of $99 or more, while supplies last.

This ‘build and rebuild’ set comes in at 254 pieces, that allows you to create Christmas-themed builds much similar to what you can find in LEGO’s series of advent calendars. As far as I can recall, this is the second Christmas build-up offering that LEGO came up with since it offered its first holiday-themed build up (40222) last year.

November 7-8: VIP Monthly Mini Model Build is a St. Bernard Dog (40249)

To reserve your spot, simply register for the September MMB by visiting shop.LEGO.com/Minibuild-Registration starting August 15. The LEGO MMB is meant for children ages 6 to 14, and must be completely built in store.

November 18-19: VIPs get Double Points and special Brick Friday offers.

If you’re still mulling over your LEGO Christmas shopping list and wishing to earn those double VIP points, then you may want to schedule your shopping during these dates. We don’t have information yet on what LEGO has in store for its Brick Friday deals – we’ll update you as soon as we receive confirmation.

 

November 24: November’s D2C set, The LEGO Batman Movie The Joker Manor (70922), is available for purchase.

Starting November 24, this exclusive direct-to-consumer set will be on sale for everyone (both VIPs and non-VIP members) retailing at $269.99. This 3,444-piece set features Joker’s iteration of the sprawling Wayne estate as he envisioned it in The LEGO Batman Movie. It is packed with many colorful details and play features such as roller coaster that goes around the whole building, a huge buildable Joker head with trapdoor and slide, and many more.

November 24: Brick Friday doorbuster sale items go live both in store and online.

We’ll keep this under the radar so we can give you the latest updates on Brick Friday deals and sales once they go live.

November 24-27: Exclusive Brick Friday 2017 Offers!

Other than tons of LEGO sets to be put on sale, LEGO sweetens the deal with this year’s limited-edition seasonal freebie. For purchases made from November 24 to 27, LEGO brick fans will receive an exclusive Brick Friday offer which is the Nutcracker that comes free for every single receipt purchase of $99 and above.

Though any LEGO freebie will always be welcomed, last year’s exclusive promotional which is the Snowglobe (40223) is still much to be desired.  If you plan to visit your local LEGO brand store, you’ll be happy to know that LEGO is giving away a free Canvas Tote Bag (5005326) to help you carry your haul. For a minimum purchase of $199, you’ll get to bring home this exclusive bag, which is also available for any online purchases as well.

If you opt to do your shopping at home, then Shop@Home offers free shipping between these dates as well.

Some of the sets in my Christmas wishlist include the Winter Village Station (10259) and its complementary set the Winter Holiday Train (10254). I’m also hoping to have the massively grand Ninjago City (70620) and the soon to be retired Palace Cinema (10232).

After yesterday’s tease of this year’s New York Comic Con LEGO exclusive, we now have our first look at what these sets are. Alluding to the classic Star Wars saga, we have the iconic characters of Boba Fett and Han Solo rendered in LEGO BrickHeadz form. With a total piece count of 329 pieces, the LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz Boba Fett and Han Solo in Carbonite (41498) numbered 27 and 28 respectively, is the first and largest LEGO BrickHeadz offered as of to date.

The Han Solo in Carbonite features the very first official BrickHeadz “closed eye” design, and stands as the largest LEGO BrickHeadz ever made. The LEGO BrickHeadz Boba Fett features tons of details and unique pieces exclusive to this year’s LEGO New York Comic Con offering. Set 41498 will be available to all qualified Comic-Con attendees (via a preliminary lottery system), retailing for $40 each.

LEGO Clarifies the Availability of the LEGO Star Wars VIP Card.

Purchasing an $800 LEGO set hailed to be the largest of all time is no easy feat, and being a proud owner (or planning to be one) of the currently out of stock LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192), LEGO makes sure that you’ll have the bragging rights to mark the occasion.  As a VIP member, you are guaranteed to receive the plush LEGO Star Wars VIP Card – not just for aesthetics, but also for a ton of exclusive LEGO Star Wars promos and deals even until the end of 2018.

As such, loyal LEGO Star Wars fans have their eyes locked onto this shiny, black card. In case you haven’t seen it yet, Rebelscum managed to get in touch with Kidults Inc, and has shared the following images below.

 

 

 

 

To answer several questions about how and when the LEGO Star Wars VIP Card will be received, LEGO has posted a FAQ page to address these concerns (though in hindsight, LEGO could have done a better job if they’ve done the same to address the most important questions surrounding the availability of the MF). As it seems, if you happen to spot the MF in your local LEGO brand store and decides to make a spot purchase, you still have to wait for a few weeks before you can get your new card since it will be forwarded to you by mail. Here’s the rest of the details surrounding the equally elusive LEGO Star Wars VIP Card.

Limited edition, collectible LEGO® Star Wars™ VIP Card

Get your special edition membership card when you buy the Millennium Falcon™ (75192) and enjoy a full year of LEGO® Star Wars™ themed benefits!

Who is eligible for the LEGO® Star Wars™ VIP Card?

All VIP Members that purchase the Millennium Falcon™ (75192), including members signing up for the first time. This includes all countries VIP operates in, including countries that don’t normally receive physical membership cards. For country list, please see VIP.LEGO.com/terms.

How will I receive my card?

The card will be sent via postal mail – please note that cards are not available in Brand Retail Stores. These will also be sent via post to ensure they’re personalisedand if applicable, linked to a pre-existing account. This means that all previously earned points will be available on the new card and it will already be activated. The original account will need to be fully registered by December 31, 2017.

What does the card do?

Card holders will still receive all standard VIP benefits, in addition, they’ll be eligible for a full year of special Star Wars-themed offers throughout 2018.

What are the special offers that this card entitles a member to?

Special offers will include points promotions, special events, gifts with purchase and more! The offers will be shared directly with applicable VIPs throughout 2018.

Will the VIP Number on this card be different from my regular VIP card?

Existing members will keep their existing number. It will be printed on both their original card and the Star Wars™ collectible one. They can be used interchangeably.

Can I obtain this card without purchasing the Millennium Falcon™ (75192)?

Unfortunately not. This card is meant as a special gift with the purchase of the Millennium Falcon™ (75192).

Why can’t I have my card right when I purchase the Millennium Falcon™ (75192) in a LEGO® Brand Retail Store?

This is to ensure the card is linked to any existing VIP accounts and personalized with the member’s name, they need to be custom-printed, which is not possible at the Store.

How long is the card available for?

The collectible card is a limited-time offer until 12/31, or while stocks last.

How long will it take to receive the card?

It can take up to 6 weeks after purchase of the Millennium Falcon™ (75192) to receive the card.

We Now Have Official Images for This Year’s Holiday Themed Seasonal Sets!

Last August, we posted a pair of rather grainy images of what is slated to be this year’s next holiday themed, LEGO seasonal sets. As it seems, we will again be receiving two Seasonal sets for the month of December, and thanks to The Brick Fan, we now have official images of how they look like. We now have pictures of the LEGO Seasonal Christmas Train (40262) and Christmas Town Square (40263). It is no secret that I’m a fan of the Seasonal sets and these two are no exception. I already shared my initial impression about these sets in my previous post, so I will not say much about them here. I would rather hear your thoughts on these sets, so let me know in the comments below.

LEGO Seasonal Christmas Train (40262)

Head into the holiday season with this festive LEGO® Christmas Train Ride set, featuring a red locomotive with 2 green carriages, plus a lamppost, holiday tree, 2 shop stalls and 3 minifigures.

All aboard for a festive journey with the LEGO® Christmas Train Ride set, featuring a red locomotive with 2 green carriages, plus a lamppost with a city map, 2 shop stalls, a holiday tree and various accessories.

LEGO Ninjago BrickHeadz Now Available at shop.LEGO.com – Will Be Retired At The End of The Year.

Just in time with the release The LEGO Ninjago Movie in theaters, LEGO has announced its next line of brick-built character collectibles. Initially thought to be a retailer exclusive via Toys R Us, LEGO has revealed that the LEGO Ninjago BrickHeadz Lloyd (41487) and Master Wu (41488) will now be available at shop.LEGO.com and at LEGO brand stores worldwide. However, they will be on a relatively short run until the end of this year. So if you’re into collecting LEGO BrickHeadz, better grab these sets before they are retired by December 31st.

Yes, you heard it right. These two LEGO Ninjago BrickHeadz, for some reason, will no longer be available by December 31. I don’t know exactly what LEGO  has in mind for such a limited run, but it does add to the exclusivity of these sets. They are relatively cheap as of now, $10 each so now is the best time to get them if you’re into collecting BrickHeadz, and before they become insanely expensive in the aftermarket.

LEGO Ninjago BrickHeadz Lloyd (41487)

LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 Will Include the Inhumans Royal Family.

TT Games and Warner Bros. Interactive are revving up the excitement for its next big LEGO Marvel video game, LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2, with the inclusion of Marvel’s power-packed royal family. It has been previously revealed that Medusa and Lockjaw will be one of the many, never-before-seen, playable characters that will appear in the game, and completing the roster of the Inhumans, WB Games UK has released a teaser trailer that shows Marvel’s Royal Family battling the likes of the evil genius, Maximus. Take a look:

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today released a NEW vignette for LEGO® Marvel Super Heroes 2, spotlighting members of the Inhuman Royal Family, including Black Bolt, Medusa, Crystal, Karnak, Gorgon, Maximus and the lovable canine, Lockjaw, all in LEGO® form. Also showcased is their ancestral home, the Inhuman city of Attilan, which is one of 18 different iconic Marvel locations featured in the game, all ripped from time and space to form the expansive Open Hub World of Chronopolis.

Being a vast open-world as it is, the Inhumans’ city of Attilan will be one of the 18 different locations of the open hub world of Chronopolis, as players figure out ways to stop the menacing Kang the Conqueror. In typical LEGO fashion, these heroes are seen in their comicbook-minifigure versions with a bit of light, friendly humor added to them. I am also excited to see that Black Bolt will be returning to LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2 – I hope his character and superpowers will be given more attention in this sequel. I love that scene where Black Bolt commands Maximus to be silent, and the king of the Inhumans managed to unleash a fraction of his power in just a single, spoken word. Other than Black Bolt, we also see the rest of the Inhumans such as Crystal, Triton, and Gorgon all making their debut in this superhero powered sequel, so it’s pretty interesting to see how all of these characters will play out in LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2. A nice DLC-like back story perhaps? We just have to wait and see until the game launches on November 14.

Crystal
Triton
Gorgon

As an added treat, TT Games are also throwing in a cool, comic-book art poster when you pre-order LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2. Other than this limited-edition poster, you’ll also get an early access to the Classic Guardians of the Galaxy Character Pack, and the exclusive Giant-Man LEGO minifigure.

 

 

WATCH: LEGO House Official Video – A Sneak Peek at What’s In Store for Visitors on Grand Opening Day.

We’re just two days away before the acclaimed House of the Brick opens its doors to the public on Thursday, September 28. Located at Billund, Denmark, The LEGO House is one of the main family attractions in Southern Denmark, with fun activities for LEGO fans of all ages. The best part is, with or without a ticket, you still get to see The LEGO House in all of its brick-built glory.

Even without a ticket and if you just wish to drop by the LEGO House, then you’ll be glad to know that you can have a leisurely stay at the spacious LEGO Square located inside the LEGO House itself. You can also visit the LEGO Shop where you can find the exclusive LEGO Architecture LEGO House (21037), and the creatively fun LEGO Mosaic Maker which was first available exclusively at the LEGO Store in London. The LEGO House also has three restaurants that integrates the LEGO brick experience, from the moment you place your order and when you enjoy your customized meal.




Those who have purchased their tickets in advance will be able to have exclusive access within the House’s six Experience Zones: the Blue, Yellow, Green, and Red interactive zones. The LEGO House also takes pride in its History Collection – an extensive collection of sets through its decades of existence. It also features the creative MOCs of the best Master Builders on the planet, all displayed in their glory at the Masterpiece Gallery.





By the way, in case you’re wondering why you haven’t heard from Tyler recently, we are pleased to tell you that he was recently invited to display some of his original creations in the Masterpiece Gallery. Yup, you heard it right – his talents didn’t go unnoticed by the LEGO House management and he was commissioned to display his original builds inside the House of the Brick.

TRU’s Bricktober 2017 Minifigure Sets Comes in a Diorama Format.

A couple of weeks ago, we saw the official images of this year’s Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 minifigure sets and this time, more info is coming in from TRU’s outlets in south east Asia. Thanks to TRU Taiwan and Singapore, we have additional images that suggest that we’ll be expecting more than just the usual package of four minifigures.

TRU Singapore’s Bricktober 2017 ad.

TRU Taiwan’s blog site shares details on this year’s Bricktober minifigure sets which apparently includes a diorama for each of them. Each set comes with its unique, foldable diorama that complements the minifigs’ in them. Check these out.

LEGO Ninjago Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 (5004938)

LEGO Batman Movie Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Minifigures (5004939)

LEGO City Jungle Exploration Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Minifigures (5004940)

LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober 2017 Collectible Minifigures (5004941)

As  you can see, the LEGO Batman Movie Minifigures (5004939) comes with what it seems to be a facade of Gotham City, while the LEGO City Jungle Exploration Minifigures (5004940) is placed on a jungle themed background (that seems obvious), and the LEGO Collectible Minifigures (5004941) set comes in with a sea rescue diorama format. What I find rather odd is how the LEGO Ninjago Minifigures (5004938) set is packaged. Since it is clear that the set specifically refers to Ninjago Masters of Spinjitzu, the accompanying background is expected to be based on the recent season of the TV show. However, as you can see from the image above, its choice of diorama takes its cue from The LEGO Ninjago Movie, which is quite out of place in my opinion. Nevertheless, the diorama itself is a nice addition to these limited edition sets and adds a touch of exclusivity to them. It reminds me of the LEGO Batman Movie Movie Maker Set (853650), and the LEGO Ninjago Movie Movie Maker Set (853702) which comes with their similar backdrops.

Though TRU stores in some parts of Asia and Europe have already announced their Bricktober release schedules, we still yet to see the same in the US and North America. Traditionally, these sets are released in the month of October, so we are expecting to hear some word from Toys R Us any time soon. Let us know in the comments below if you happen to spot these minifigs in your local TRU store.

We’re Giving Away The LEGO Ninjago Movie Temple of the Ultimate Ultimate Weapon (70617)!

Here’s another treat from the Brick Show! Hot on the heels of our previous LEGO Star Wars BB-8 (75187) giveaway, Jason and the whole team have another raffle draw that you don’t want to miss. In celebration of the theatrical release of the LEGO Ninjago Movie, we are giving away the LEGO Ninjago Movie Temple of the Ultimate Ultimate Weapon (70617), valued at $100!

Coming in at 1,403 the Temple of the Ultimate Ultimate Weapon is the third largest LEGO Ninjago Movie set offered to the public. Other than the Destiny’s Bounty (70618) where you can have the entire team with their ninja masks on, the Temple of the Ultimate Ultimate Weapon (70617) is the only set that has the complete minifigure roster of our teen ninjas, each donned with their own unique hair pieces and signature weapons. The Temple itself is like a shout out to Indiana Jones Temple of Doom, filled with a host of traps, a secret entrance, and two monstrous stone guardians. The design of the Temple itself is impressive, with an Asian inspired outer facade concealing the many traps waiting inside. Over-all, this is a LEGO set that I will not hesitate to recommend.

Here’s LEGO’s product animation feature of the Temple of the Ultimate Ultimate Weapon (70618), showing some of the cool play features of this set.

Excited to have this? Then be sure to check out our contest mechanics by heading over to this link. Here’s Jason with more details about our next LEGO giveaway, and the announcement of our winner of the LEGO Star Wars BB-8 raffle.

As of this posting, we still have three days before our LEGO Ninjago Movie giveaway closes so be sure to visit the link mentioned above to have the chance of bringing home this one exciting set.  Happy building!

 

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Wave 2 Sets Revealed + LEGO Ninjago Movie Promotionals Now Up!

There has been a lot of activity in LEGO fandom during these past few days, especially prior to the launch of The LEGO Ninjago Movie in the US and the rest of North America. Though I haven’t seen it yet since the movie launch date is a week late here from where I am based, I’m pretty sure that it is a fun film to watch in spite of the mixed reviews that it is getting recently. Without revealing too much spoilers about the film, LEGO has released images of its second wave of LEGO Ninjago Movie sets said to be available towards the end of this year, courtesy of Promobricks.

We already have a hint about this second wave of sets, considering the reveal of the polybag, microversion of Cole’s Quake Mech (30379) back in July, and this time we now have a better look at its larger version. Additionally, we have one interesting set that is making a comeback: The Lloyd – Spinjitzu Master (70628). These and other new sets, along with the SDCC-revealed garmadon, Garmadon, GARMADON! (70656), are expected to hit the toy shelves just in time for the holidays.

Lloyd – Spinjitzu Master (70628)
Includes a Ninjago Movie Lloyd minifigure; estimated at $11.

 

Piranha Chase (70629)
Includes Kai, Misako, Ray, and Shark Army Gunner minifigures; estimated at $25.

 

Garmadon’s Volcano Lair (70631)
Includes Zane, Garmadon, Shark Army General #1, Shark Army Octopus, and GPL Tech minifigures; estimated at $65.

 

Cole’s Quake Mech (70632)
Includes Cole, Misako, Fred Finley, Crusty, and Shark Army Thug minifigures; estimated at $109.

The Lloyd-Spinjitzu Master (706218) is a welcome treat for all spinjitzu fans out there. Though we only have Lloyd as of the moment, we can fairly assume that the rest of The LEGO Ninjago Movie characters will be added to the roster of spinning masters as well. The Quake Mech (70632) is a spot-on representation of Cole’s actual battle mech in the film, and over all, probably best mech-themed set in The LEGO Ninjago Movie line-up. Though common sense might tell you that this is quite an unstable build due to the fact that it is only balanced on a large wheel more like a unicycle, the designers of the Quake Mech cleverly added a rod piece at the back of the wheel to add more stability to this build. We don’t have yet the exact price of these sets in USD nor their piece count, but given its size and value in Euros, we provided a rough estimate of how much it might sell in the US.

So, if you’re still holding on to that LEGO Ninjago Movie purchase up until now, you might be interested to know that the free Mini Green Ninja Mech Dragon (30428) polybag promotional is still up at shop.LEGO.com.  I’m not sure if this is the case in your local LEGO brand stores since it stocks might be out already considering that it comes as a freebie for a relatively small price range – a minimum purchase of any LEGO item of worth $35 and more.

To sweeten the deal, another promotional is currently live: the free and exclusive LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd minifigure (30609) polybag starting September 22 to October 8 or until supplies last. This exclusive Lloyd minifigure comes with a different torso print and a tasselled sword piece, as seen in the movie. As far as I know, this is the only Lloyd minifigure that comes with said torso print, showing his ninja garb beneath the green hoodie. You can have these minifigure polybag for free for any LEGO purchase of $50 and more at shop.LEGO.com, or at your local LEGO Store.

As of this writing, I can confirm that the Mini Green Ninja Mech Dragon (30428) is still up at shop.LEGO.com since it is still appearing in my cart upon checkout, though I’m not sure until when. So if you’re eyeing on that LEGO Ninjago Movie set that you are itching to have, then I suggest now is the time to hit that checkout button.
