Check Out the LEGO Freebies in the October 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

After being treated with a couple of magical freebies from the wizarding world of LEGO Harry Potter this month, the LEGO Store now gears up for another wave of promotional items slated to be released next month. Read on to see what the October 2020 LEGO Store Calendar has to offer for your next LEGO purchase.

Other than featuring the LEGO Star Wars Mos Cantina (75290) as its flagship, centerpiece set for next month, the October 2020 LEGO Store Calendar is somewhat pretty random in its offerings, with not just two but three freebies to offer that covers various LEGO themes. You may also download a PDF version of next month’s LEGO Store Calendar right here. Let’s take a closer look at what the calendar has to offer both for in-store and online LEGO purchases.

Free Exclusive LEGO Mindstorms Mini Robots (40413) Polybag

From October 15 to 25, 2020, or while supplies last.

October 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

The latest LEGO Mindstorms set just had a reboot with the announcement of the Robot Inventor (51515) set. And to celebrate the arrival of this new robotics game-changer, LEGO has also revealed a polybag version of the theme with the LEGO Mindstorms Mini Robots (40413). No sensors, motors, and intelligent hub of course, but this polybag promo is packed with enough LEGO pieces to build 5 separate models at the same time. I particularly like that build which recreates a mini version of the original Robot Inventor, plus the four-legged robodog Spot inspired by Boston Dynamics.

This polybag freebie will be available from October 15 to 25 and will be added to your shopping cart automatically for a minimum single-receipt purchase of any LEGO products worth $100 and more.

Free LEGO Build Your Own Vehicles (30549) Polybag

From October 15 to 25, 2020, or while supplies last.

October 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

It looks like if you time your next purchase anytime during the third week of October, you’ll not just get one but two polybag freebies. For a minimum single-receipt purchase worth $40 and above,  you’ll get a free LEGO Build Your Own Vehicles (30549) polybag. It’s a neat incentive to have if you wish to make the best out of your intended LEGO purchase on these dates. Take note however that this is an In-Store only freebie which means this will not be available over at LEGO Shop@Home.

Free LEGO Hidden Side El Fuego’s Stunt Cannon (30464) Polybag

This promo will launch (no pun intended) from October 26 until November 1 or until supplies last.

Build the LEGO® Elf Club House and Bring the Magic of Christmas Into Your Home

The latest set in the LEGO® Holiday collection the Elf Clubhouse is a delightful addition to any holiday display, available from LEGO Retail Stores and LEGO.com from the 23rd of September

BILLUND, September 21, 2020: Experience the magic of Christmas this holiday season and discover the quaint cottage that is home to Santa’s Elves, with the latest LEGO holiday set – the LEGO® Elf Clubhouse. Jam-packed with seasonal touches, the LEGO® Elf Club House allows families to escape the chaos of the holiday season, immerse themselves in the fantasy world of the holiday season and create a new festive building tradition.

LEGO Elf Club House

The LEGO Elf Clubhouse is a truly magical set, with festive features which offer a glimpse into the everyday lives of Santa’s little helpers – including a waffle machine to help them refuel after a long day of toy making, a brick-built repositionable chimney, and even a ‘sleigh port’ to park the elf’s sleigh in, ready to load up with presents for adults and children alike.

This brand-new holiday set is the perfect festive family tradition and a way for families (naughty or nice) to enjoy the magic of the Holiday season and build together to bring their ultimate Christmas fantasy to life. Deck the halls with the LEGO® Elf Clubhouse Christmas Tree, which is brimming with colorful baubles, sneak under the Christmas tree a selection of toys and small gifts the elves have prepared for each other and watch Santa’s sleigh take off into the night sky with the telescope. You can even use the computer to track who has been naughty and who’s nice!

Once you’ve finished your DIY project, The LEGO® Elf Clubhouse, which measures at 8.5” (22cm) high and 5” (13cm) deep, makes a stunning display piece – with a LEGO light brick included in the set to help illuminate the festive scene. Add it to other sets in the LEGO Holiday collection, including the LEGO Creator Expert Gingerbread House and the LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village Fire Station to create a decorative festive display.

The Elf Club House is the latest creation from LEGO fan turned official LEGO designer, Chris McVeigh, whose personal passion project ‘Brick Sketches’ is now an official LEGO theme. Talking about the LEGO Elf Club House, Chris commented:

“It’s amazing to be able to turn my hand to such an iconic set of LEGO models – Holiday season has always been a special time for me and my family, so getting into the festive spirit always come easily when I’m designing (and if I ever struggle, putting on Walking In A Winter Wonderland always helps put me in the right mindset!). For the LEGO® Elf Clubhouse, I wanted to explore the world of Santa’s Elves and work out what they do after they’ve had a long day making toys, giving a glimpse into their secret world, whilst also creating an iconic holiday set that reflects the architecture of alpine chalets. There are so many brilliant pieces within this set, but my favorite piece is the reindeer, which is a brand new addition to this set – I like to call it Brixen! “

LEGO Elf Club House™ will be available directly via LEGO.com and LEGO Stores from 23rd September

We even included authentic details like the gearstick knob – a favorite toy of the Child as seen in the series.”

The construction set comes with an information plaque, which includes the Child’s height and age, and a LEGO® Star Wars™ Minifigure of the Child to complete a charming display.

The Second 2020 LEGO Ideas Review Stage Features a Record-Breaking 35 Product Ideas

I have to admit that I haven’t covered much of what’s going on over at LEGO Ideas during these past weeks – I only managed to keep track of the first eight qualifiers for the current review stage early in June. But to my surprise this morning, I was greeted by my inbox with this fascinating update from the LEGO Ideas Team. In a record-breaking feat, the LEGO Ideas platform has listed 35 qualifiers for its Second 2020 LEGO Ideas Review Stage. What is even more fascinating is that it even bested its previous record of 26 qualified submissions during the First 2020 LEGO Ideas Review which concluded last May.

These current 35 product idea qualifiers managed to garner the needed support from 10,000 LEGO fans from the period of early May until September 7. And for someone who has been following the LEGO Ideas scene during the past years, all I can say is that this is insanely cool! This only shows that no pandemic can ever stop the creativity of our brick-loving, LEGO community.

I can just also imagine the sheer amount of work awaiting the LEGO Ideas Review Team considering that as Hasan Jensen, LEGO Ideas Engagement Manager puts it, they are still hard at work in reviewing the qualifiers from the previous review stage. And with the next cycle of product submissions now officially commencing today and until January 4, 2021, the Review Team must clearly work, double or even triple time.

In case you missed it, here are the 35 qualifiers for the Second 2020 LEGO Ideas Review Stage. Feel free to list your favorites at the comments below, and congratulations once again to all the qualifiers!

The LEGO Elf Club House (10275) Is This Year’s Winter Village Set

Following the unofficial reveal of the LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina (75290) earlier today, the LEGO South Korea Facebook page also shared another upcoming LEGO 18+ set that marks our next set in the Winter Village series. The LEGO Elf Club House (10275) is this year’s seasonal LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village set, now relabeled as a LEGO 18+ offering.

Though the post was removed already by the LEGO South Korea social media team, excited LEGO fans were quick to take notice of it. From what we can learn from the above image is that the LEGO Elf Club House (10275) comes in 1,197 pieces including four elf minifigures and what seems to be a new and exclusive reindeer figure. It also comes with other mini builds that add fun and personality to this magical hangout such as a piano, a ship, a Christmas tree, and that pretty neat sleigh. What stands out the most, in my opinion, is that nice retro looking CRT screen. It’s hard to figure out if it is used as an old PC or a cash register in this context. But whatever is the case, I like the idea of seeing it beside my LEGO CMF Series 19 Computer Programmer (71025).

It is also interesting to note that this is the second time that LEGO will be releasing a Winter Village set that places the limelight on Santa’s hard-working helpers. It was back in 2014 when we last saw them on a similar LEGO set such as this in the form of the LEGO Creator Expert Santa’s Workshop (10245). I like the idea that after a hard day’s work, our Christmas elves get to chill out and rest in their very own clubhouse. I’m not quite sure if the elves in the upcoming LEGO Elf Club House will be a re-issue or will feature a different design as compared from that of six years ago. However, it seems to be clear that they will all be featuring a green upper torso in contrast to the varied colors offered in Santa’s Workshop (10245) set.

Santa’s trusted helpers are seen here hard at work in 2014’s LEGO Creator Expert Santa’s Workshop (10245). And for this year, LEGO is giving them the pampering that they deserve in the upcoming  LEGO Elf Club House (10275). 

We do not have the pricing for this set as of this posting. However, given the Elf Club House’s piece count, we can assume that it will be around the same price range of $99.99. And since this direct-to-consumer set is expected to arrive in LEGO brand stores by September 23, we can expect an official announcement from LEGO anytime soon.

Thanks again to Dylan Chow for the tip.

Here’s a Glimpse of the New LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina (75290)

Here’s another surprising reveal. According to a report published by fellow LEGO fansite StoneWars, it looks like we will be having another LEGO Star Wars set that you’ll most likely add to your collection. The LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina (75290) is by far the largest LEGO rendition of this infamous hangout in Star Wars lore, and we now have our first glimpse of what this upcoming set has to offer.

The surprising news of the new Cantina came from an unlikely source – from the LEGO South Korea Facebook page as you can see from the promotional flyer below. The post has been taken down already so it’s most likely that someone from LEGO South Korea’s social media team was a bit too excited to press that share button ahead of the set’s embargo.

This is not the most ideal image that we want to see from this set but still, we can somehow figure out what we can expect from it. This LEGO Star Wars 18+ set comes in at 3,187 pieces and is expected to retail for 349.99 Euros once it is released on September 16. It consists of several builds that make the Cantina one of the most memorable hangouts on this side of the galaxy. We can see a V-35 Courier and Ubrikkian 9000 Landspeeders, Chalmun’s Spaceport, a re-release of a Dewback figure, and take note of this – an impressive collection of 21 minifigure characters:

  • Luke Skywalker
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Han Solo
  • Chewbacca
  • C-3PO
  • R2-D2
  • Imperial Sandtroopers (x2)
  • Garindan
  • Wuher
  • Greedo
  • Ponda Baba
  • Cornelius Evazan
  • Figrin Dan and the Modal Nodes (x3)
  • Momaw Nadon
  • Kabe
  • Kardue’sai’Malloc
  • An Unidentified Cantina Patron
  • Jawa

Though this is not the first time that LEGO had released a buildable version of the Mos Eisley Cantina (this is the LEGO’s 4th version by the way), this is certainly the largest of its kind as of to date. The LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina (75290) also shares some brick DNA with 2018’s Betrayal at Cloud City (75222) previously packaged under the Master Builders subtheme. Though there were mixed reactions from LEGO fans about this set, the latest revelation about the Cantina’s return which is intended for 18+ builders and the more discerning LEGO collector, is in fact, a welcomed development.

Since the reported release of Cantina is scheduled for September 16, we will be on the lookout for its official announcement that may happen anytime soon. Are you excited about the LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina (75290)? What do you think makes this set a must-have? Tell us what you think in the comments below.

Thanks again for StoneWars and LEGO fan Dylan Chow for sharing this news.

Earn Extra LEGO VIP Points By Testing Your Wizarding Knowledge

In case you missed it, the LEGO VIP Rewards Center has a neat little incentive for LEGO Harry Potter fans. You can get extra LEGO VIP points by taking a short (but a bit challenging) quiz that tests how deep you are in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Here are the details as posted over at the Rewards Center.

How Much Do You Know About Harry?

Take our VIP Quiz now. Test your knowledge about the world of Harry Potter and you could earn 150 bonus VIP points (the same amount that you would win when you catch the Golden Snitch).

There’s a total of 9 questions to be answered and you need to get at least 6 of them correctly to earn those sweet, extra LEGO VIP points. I’m not really into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter being an average fan that I am, so I have to conjure some good ‘ol search magic to answer most of them. Additionally, all of these questions have something to do with the iconic Diagon Alley which is now rendered once again in LEGO bricks in the form of the recently released LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley (75978).

The nice thing about this particular LEGO VIP quiz is that you get to know the correct answer and the results stay listed in your account as long as the promo is up. Just for fun, I’m sharing the answers here in alphabetical order so you just try to figure which answer goes to what question.

  • Five
  • Floo powder
  • Flourish and Blotts
  • Knockturn Alley
  • Owl
  • Quality Quidditch Supplies
  • The Daily Prophet
  • Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes
  • Wiseacre’s

The 150 extra LEGO VIP points may not sound that much, but still, its a great way to stack up on those points without making any LEGO purchase. There’s no particular mention of any deadline, but it will be wise to take this fun little quiz as soon as you can.

The LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley (75978) is now available at LEGO Shop@Home. 

While you’re at it, be sure to check the details of the new LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley set and the rest of the latest LEGO Harry Potter sets available now over at LEGO Shop@Home.
