Earlier this month, we have learned that LEGO is in an early gift-giving spirit with the announcement of its next promotional available from October 1 to 25. The LEGO Holiday Countdown Calendar 40222 is now available for FREE with purchases of $99 and more at any LEGO Brand Store and shop.LEGO.com until supplies last. Unlike the rest of this year’s Advent Calendars that are focused on Star Wars, City, and Friends themes, the Holiday Countdown Calendar focuses on more Christmas themed miniature builds and comes at a lower price point of $19.99. However, the 40222 is described as a 250-piece ‘build-and-rebuild’ set which means that unlike the Advent Calendars, you may probably not be able to assemble all the 24 suggested builds simultaneously.
Following the teaser of LEGO Ideas over at their blog site regarding the announcement of the results of the first 2016 Review Stage, we now have our victor among 9 hopefuls: The Old Fishing Store by Robert Bontenbal (RobenAnne) was announced as the next LEGO Ideas project that eventually received the thumbs up from LEGO’s Review Team at the LEGO HQ in Billund, Denmark. Here are additional photos from the Old Fishing Store as originally submitted by Bontenbal. Take note that this is not yet the final model as offered by LEGO.
Following the unveiling of the first half of LEGO’s DC Super Hero Girls sets yesterday, now comes TLG and Warner Bros.’ press release and a glimpse on three more sets under the celebrated theme. Thanks to LEGO’s Twitter post, we now have a first look at the second half of these sets in time for their public debut at the New York Comic Con from October6-9. If you have plans in visiting this year’s NYCC, be sure to drop by at LEGO’s Booth #1336 at Hall 1E to be one of the first to preview them PLUS a chance to bag the Batgirl minidoll as a daily prize draw for each day of the Con. Check out the tweet below, followed by a closer look at these images and their official description.
It seems that we’ll be ticking another set to add in our Christmas wish list. We know that for this holiday season, the Elves’ Workshop (40205) is the next seasonal set to be slated after the Pilgrim’s Feast (40204). Perhaps in the spirit of the Christmas season, LEGO will be offering not one, but two Christmas themed sets this November. Thanks to LEGO Store Budapest’s exclusive catalogue, we now have a first look at the Santa Claus (40206) which seems to go pretty well with the Elves’ Workshop (40205). Here’s page 38 of the said catalogue.
