Last Reminder of LEGO Cyber Monday Deals

The craziness of Black Friday weekend finally winds down with Cyber Monday, this November 29. While some of the Black Friday Deals are still on, one-day Cyber Monday offers are in the forefront now. We covered some of them before going into the weekend. Now, let’s review what to expect this Cyber Monday, as well as new stuff we learned.

  • LEGO Fleece Blanket – GWP with VIP purchases over $200
  • $5 discount voucher – get with redemption of 455 VIP points (usual rate at 650 points)

Here’s something else, but only if you’re a LEGO VIP member:

Most other deals from Black Friday still apply until today: GWPs Santa’s Front Yard (40484) and Seasonal Holiday Tree (in-store). And let’s not forget the VIP sweepstakes with a million VIP points at stake. Go get that last bit of LEGO shopping in before Cyber Monday winds down.

UCS AT-AT (75313) Releases Early Black Friday in Some Areas

When it comes to LEGO Star Wars sets, or LEGO sets in general, nothing quite beats the Ultimate Collector’s Series. They’re the biggest, baddest LEGO renditions of some of the most iconic vehicles and vessels of “Star Wars.” And over the years every successive Star Wars UCS set just keeps getting larger and more detailed. Nothing illustrates this evolution better than the UCS AT-AT Imperial Walker (75313), releasing this Black Friday, November 26. Not even the triple-digit pricing is scaring away UCS fans gearing to add this to their collection. No wonder they’re crowding locations announcing midnight launches for this.

Take for instance the Leicester Square LEGO Store in London. We reported earlier this week that their midnight launch of the UCS AT-AT (75313) would be limited to 200 buyers. To enforce that, the flagship store would give away 200 special-access armbands on Thursday, November 25. But as Brick Fanatics tells it, eager collectors have formed a line outside the store already…on Wednesday. Their former editor shared a photo of the LEGO “campers” on Twitter, explaining that they started lining up 7:30AM of the 24th for the passing out of armbands on the 25th, 10:30AM. Now that’s a collector’s determination.

The excitement to get the UCS AT-AT as early as possible is understandable. A cursory glance at LEGO.com and its 75313 listing indicates that for Australia and New Zealand, the set is available. Being closer to the International Date Line really helps. For them, UCS AT-AT (75313) will go for AU$1,299.99 and NZ$1,499.99 respectively. Let’s not forget the Luke Skywalker Lightsaber (40483) GWP either. Everyone else would have to wait for store hours to get the set, if they’re not waiting outside stores themselves already. Anyway: good hunting, UCS collectors.

LEGO Black Friday/Cyber Monday 2021 Promo Rundown

In case the excitement of the LEGO VIP weekend this past weekend made you forget: that was only the appetizer. The real highlight of November for shoppers is Black Friday/Cyber Monday. For the year 2021 that runs from November 26 to 29. LEGO’s November 20-21 VIP weekend had some special offers recurring for Black Friday. And of course, let’s not forget the LEGO Star Wars UCS AT-AT (75313) launching that day. We’ll also get new treats, some of which go active only on Cyber Monday. The Brick Fan got the scoop on a Cyber Monday VIP gift. LEGO Shop tells us the rest of it.

About that LEGO VIP item, it was spotted by The Brick Fan first on LEGO Shop Australia. They also posted the Black Friday/Cyber Monday promotions, seconded later by the rest of LEGO.com worldwide. What are we expecting this weekend? These:

  • LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker’s Lightsaber (40483)GWP with the UCS AT-AT (75313), a Black Friday launch
  • Seasonal set Santa’s Front Yard (40484)GWP with LEGO purchases over $170
  • Seasonal Holiday Treein-store GWP with LEGO purchases over $40

Enjoy your Black Friday/Cyber Monday LEGO shopping! This too is but a prelude for the hectic Holiday rush, after all.

Star Wars UCS AT-AT (75313) Midnight Opening Sale at Leicester LEGO Store

“We’ve sighted Imperial walkers.” So went the dreaded line in the Rebel Alliance’s Echo Base, planet Hoth, during “The Empire Strikes Back.” LEGO-wise, we’ve been sighting said four-legged AT-AT walker in (its latest) brick-built form all month. That was since November 5 when LEGO revealed their impressive Ultimate Collector’s edition of the Imperial AT-AT (75313). The set counts as one of the highlights for LEGO’s Black Friday 2021 event frenzy. It launches November 26 after all. LEGO Star Wars UCS collectors have marked this as a priority acquisition. In the UK, a LEGO branded store is already making necessary preparations.

According to Brickset, the UK flagship LEGO Store in Leicester Square, London is opening very early Friday night. How early? Try midnight on the dot of the 26th of November. Like a midnight book launch, this is to enable Londoners to get their UCS AT-AT (75313) real early. One would expect stocks of the set to run out quickly when the sun rises. As for the midnight sale, it will only run from 12AM to 2AM on Friday. One extra caveat however: would-be early buyers of the UCS AT-AT must first gain a special-access wristband from the Leicester LEGO Store the day before. And they’ll only have 200 to give.

LEGO Store Leicester Square will begin distributing the midnight UCS sale wristbands to customers at 10:30AM, November 25. These early birds will also receive a “special midnight opening gift” alongside their new LEGO UCS set (75313). Hopefully that wasn’t just a fanciful way of referring to Luke Skywalker’s Lightsaber (40483). This is already expected as a LEGO Star Wars GWP.

LEGO Japan Showcases Two-Set Fusions of Sets Available on Amazon.JP

The key concept of LEGO has always been that, with any given number of bricks, one can build anything. True, most packaged LEGO sets are to build a specific building/vehicle/etc. They even have instruction manuals so that builders can assemble the pieces exactly as pictured. But ultimately, building with LEGO bricks can be one of the best outlets for creative freedom. LEGO Japan two Saturdays ago demonstrated that fact in partnership with Amazon Japan. The results of that promotional activity on social media would grab attention and ignite builder creativity.

Brick Fanatics brings us this interesting social media activity made possible by the Japanese divisions of LEGO and Amazon. The challenge: How would you combine two different LEGO set builds into a unified creation? LEGO JP’s original Twitter post (November 13, 2021) even provides an example.

The “Before” photo showcases the completed LEGO Technic Off-Road Buggy (42124) and LEGO Monkie Kid Lion Guardian (80021). The “After” photo reveals the Buggy revamped to have the Lion Guardian as a motif. LEGO Japan invites viewers to visit Amazon JP’s page, and post their own two-set fusions in the comments. Let’s go over to Amazon’s Japanese page now.

In the page, we see two LEGO Friends sets, Friendship Bus (41395) and Heartlake City Organic Café (41444). They get fused into a curious double-decker food truck.

Two Ninjago sets – Jungle Dragon (71746) and Zane’s Titan Mech (71738) – fuse into a dragon robot. It looks similar to mecha plastic models by Bandai.

The real Japanese essence of this LEGO-Amazon team-up lies in this particular build. LEGO Ideas Tree House (21318) plus Botanical Collection Bonsai Tree (10281) equals Sakura Tree House. The featured LEGO sets are mostly available on Amazon.jp, or you can just go LEGO.com. They’re very inspiring fusions, right?

LEGO x Target Collection, Coming December 4

We all know that LEGO is an old hand at cross-promotional partnerships. Their team-ups with brands like Adidas give their partner some neat LEGO-themed merchandise. In return, they get to develop some sweet tie-ins. Aside from clothing labels The LEGO Group also collaborates with retail brands. Usually that nets some exclusive deals on LEGO products, if the retailer is something like Target. But this latest partnership between the two promises to be one of the biggest yet. After several teasers last month, the LEGO x Target Collection looks ready to go with a launch date.

Brick Fanatics tells us that the limited-time  is due to release on December 4. It consists of a wide variety of LEGO-themed merchandise, from clothes to accessories to plastic house-ware. Signature brick aesthetics can make future owners believe they’re using 1:1 scale LEGO pieces. The entire collection boasts no less than 300 individual items with an average price of $30. Is that too steep or too cheap? There are LEGO x Target Collection items going as low as $1.50 and up to $120. You’re sure to find something for every member of the family, even pets.

Sip your drinks from minifigure mugs sized just right for your hands. Go to the beach or playground sandbox with a sand-building kit including sand-brick molds and shovels. LEGO collectors probably could never have enough minifigure-head storage containers. And of course, the bright and cheery LEGO x Target clothes are all snazzy, if you like that fashion. You can get them all exclusively from Target stores and online starting December 4. They’ve even kept the promo open-ended, so save up and get ready for them.

Roundup of LEGO Sets Releasing November 1 (And Those Available for Preorder)

Seasonal LEGO Polar Bear & Gift Pack (40494) Now Available

With the end of the year fast approaching, LEGO seasonal stuff is coming out of the woodwork. For the Yuletide seasonal sets, this year we got a Penguin (40498) and Santa’s Sleigh (40499). And that does not even include the Creator Expert Santa’s Visit (10293). All of them look plenty awesome for display on a surface. But LEGO’s dabbled in buildable hanging decorations too, which is just appropriate for Christmas celebration. As The Brick Fan would have it, a certain seasonal set was supposed to be released last October 1. It wasn’t. LEGO only listed the set as available online recently.

The LEGO Polar Bear and Gift Pack set (40494) gets you two Yuletide hanging decorations, available at Shop@Home. A brick-built polar bear head and Christmas present await, with a blank tag on the gift and string for hanging. At just under 10 bucks you can’t ask for more affordable LEGO decorations in the Holiday season.

Walmart Lists LEGO Marvel Mech Armor 3-in-1 Pack (66671)

The best parts about Marvel, whether from the comic books or the MCU, are the characters themselves. Translate that to LEGO and you get…minifigures. But since LEGO is about building stuff that means we’ve been getting cool vehicles and location sets too. Then LEGO hit on a combination of character and building, resulting in the Marvel Mech Armor sets released since 2019. If you missed out on these and want to get a head start in collecting, Walmart’s got it covered. According to Brick Fanatics they have a nice multi-set package of LEGO Marvel Mech Armor for any late-start collectors.

Here is Walmart’s online listing for the LEGO Marvel Mech Armor Collection 3-in-1 Pack (66671). This pack combines the Mech Armor sets for Captain America (76168), Thor (76169) and Miles Morales Spider-Man (76171). At just over 100 pieces per solo set, the 3-in-1 comes down to 385 pieces total. That makes the bundle price of $39.99 just right. Young LEGO builders also get three Marvel superheroes at once, making it a deal that can’t be beat. We at The Brick Show don’t know if this LEGO Marvel Mech Armor Collection (66671) will become available outside Walmart. But until then now you can find it there.

LEGO November 2021 Store Calendar Released

With barely a week’s worth of days left in this month, you know what that means LEGO-wise. The next Store Calendar’s going to drop. Here’s a big shout-out to The Brick Fan, for noting the November 2021 LEGO Store Calendar on LEGO’s servers. Several days back, we were expecting some GWPs that “disappeared” from the October calendar to reappear here. They don’t need to anymore, but as a result the November activities/specials appear minimal. Black Friday deals should be marked down, but we’ve been informed LEGO’s saving them for November 15. Anyway, have a look at the calendar down below.
