LEGO Seasonal Penguin (40498) Coming Soon Just in Time for the Holidays

Just recently, LEGO has revealed a wave of seasonal sets that we can expect this August. And on top of that, just in time for the holidays, we will also have the LEGO Seasonal Penguin (40498).

To be precise, this set is not yet listed at LEGO Shop@Home as of this writing. But the arrival of the LEGO Seasonal Penguin is confirmed by this year’s LEGO Seasonal Halloween Owl (40497) box art. As far as I recall, this is the first time that LEGO has offered a seasonal set following this usual holiday symbol. The penguin was usually a staple of LEGO’s Monthly Mini Builds, and it’s great to see that a seasonal set has been designed that is focused entirely on this cute, arctic creature. The LEGO Seasonal Penguin (40498) also seems to incorporate the same display stand as its seasonal predecessors, and most likely stands between 11-12 cm like that of the Halloween Owl.

We do not have further details as of today with regards to its piece count and availability, but the retail price is definitely expected to be $15 as well. This may likewise be the last seasonal set to be offered for this year following this theme and design.

If you’re a LEGO completionist and are looking forward to adding this set to your brick-built seasonal collection, then be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home. Or you can also bookmark our blog site to receive future updates with regards to this set.

Add Some Spooky Fun With the LEGO Spider & Haunted House Pack (40493)

Alongside this year’s LEGO Seasonal Halloween Owl (40497) set, LEGO also introduces another spooky fun way to celebrate this year’s Halloween. The LEGO Spider & Haunted House Pack (40493) is a great way to add some fun to your Halloween decors, giving it that magical LEGO touch.

This pair of ornaments come in at 132 pieces and will retail for $10 when the set becomes available in August. It follows the same home decor concept as that from last year’s LEGO Seasonal Pumpkin & Bat Duo (854049). I practically love how the spider turned out, and I have to say that it is more on the cuter side of the spectrum rather than being horrific. The mini haunted house is also a great addition especially given its use of masonry bricks and teal-colored elements.

Similarly, you may add this to your LEGO wishlist if you want to be reminded of this set once it becomes available next month. Just click on the following affiliate link below.

LEGO Ninjago 10th Anniversary BrickHeadz (40490) Back in Stock Via LEGO UK

LEGO Ninjago fans in the UK and Europe might be glad to know that the commemorative LEGO Ninjago 10th Anniversary BrickHeadz (40490) set is now back in stock over at UK LEGO Shop@Home. The said celebratory set was also made available in the US earlier this month but is now unavailable because of the understandable demand from fans.

Initially, the LEGO Ninjago 10th Anniversary BrickHeadz (40490) set was offered as a promotional set during the whole month of June. For an additional $10 over your single-receipt LEGO Ninjago purchase worth $85, this limited-edition 3-in-1 BrickHeadz will be added to your card accordingly. The set is originally valued at $30 and features the BrickHeadz versions of Golden Lloyd, Nya Samurai X, and the Firstbourne Dragon. For fans who missed this window of opportunity, LEGO also opted to put the set on sale earlier this month. However, stocks in the US seem to have depleted quite quickly since the set was first officially listed over at LEGO Shop@Home.

It’s great to hear that LEGO fans in the UK will have their shot once again of this commemorative LEGO Ninjago set, and we just have to wait and see if it will be the same case in the US and the rest of the world.

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.

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.
