The LEGO Store July 2021 Promotional Calendar has now been uploaded, with plenty of exciting promotional items to be offered next month.

Free LEGO Mini Adidas Originals Superstar (40486)

Promo valid from July 1 to 14, 2021

It’s great to hear that a smaller, more adorable version of set 10282 will be available in the form of a free LEGO Mini Adidas Originals Superstar (40486). The good thing is, it is not strictly offered as a tie-in freebie together with its larger cousin, but will be added to your cart automatically when your single-receipt purchase of any LEGO products reaches $85 and more, or while supplies last. Just be sure to avail of this promo right away starting July 1st since it is expected that this item will be quite popular among LEGO fans.

 

Free LEGO Charles Dickens Tribute (40410)

Promo valid from July 12 to 18, 2021

In a rather puzzling move, LEGO opted to return one of its seasonal offerings from last year. From July 12 to 18, LEGO fans whose qualifying purchase equals $150 or more will get a free LEGO Charles Dickens Tribute (40410) set. So in case you missed out on this promo last November, now is the best time to get this set. And if you will plan your next LEGO purchases accordingly, you may even land a chance of getting this set plus the LEGO Mini Adidas Originals Superstar (40486) July 12 to 15 (while supplies last of course).

LEGO is offering a choose your gift promo for those who will make their next LEGO purchase from July 16 to 25. Qualifying purchase of any LEGO products worth $40 or more will qualify you to select one promotional item, a choice between the LEGO Friends Emma’s Magical Box (30414) or LEGO City Skater (30568). Any of these polybags is a great way to expand your Friends or City collection. And with a relatively low price point of $40, it’s a freebie that’s not hard to miss.

It seems that LEGO has invested a lot of these promotional items for July. And this is somewhat expected since there are plenty of new LEGO sets that were currently released. We have the LEGO Ideas Typewriter (21327) to give an example and the latest wave of upcoming LEGO Monkie Kid sets slated to be released in July. What is on your LEGO wishlist for next month? Let us know in the comments below.

LEGO Mini Adidas Originals Superstar (40486) Promotional Officially Revealed

The LEGO Store July 2021 Store Calendar has already been released online, and with it comes an exciting announcement of how you can get the LEGO Mini Adidas Originals Superstar (40486). If you recall, this collectible gift-with-purchase set has been spotted in LEGO’s designer video for the larger LEGO Adidas Originals Superstar (10282) set. Brickset also managed to do an early review of this miniature counterpart in case you want to take a look.

Not only does LEGO made the promotional item official by including the details on its next LEGO Store Calendar, we also have official pictures of this set published online.

Another good thing that we can expect is that unlike what was initially speculated, this GWP will not be strictly tied in together with its larger counterpart. Instead, this gift-with-purchase set will be added to your cart once your single-receipt purchase of any LEGO products reaches $85 or more.  Personally, I’m glad that LEGO opted for this direction since I am personally looking forward to this cute little collectible rather than the larger set.

This LEGO Mini Adidas Originals Superstar (40486) promotional will be available at LEGO brand stores and LEGO Shop@Home from July 1 to 14 or while supplies last. So be sure to plan your next LEGO purchase this July if you want to bag this one.

LEGO Swing Ship Ride (5006746) VIP Gift Now Available

LEGO VIP members are in for a treat starting this week. Because as mentioned in the June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar, from June 21 to 30, 2021, LEGO VIP members in the US can now get the LEGO Swing Ship Ride (50067546) as their next gift-with-purchase (GWP) set.

Every single-receipt purchase of any LEGO sets or products worth $85 during the promo period, will entitle you to this nice Children’s Day giveaway. The set clocks in at 152 pieces with a retail value of $13, and features a movable swing ship on what seems to be an 8×8 base. It also comes with a 2×4 tile with a message, Happy Children’s Day 2021. I’m not quite sure if the tile is printed, but it will be nice if LEGO can throw in an exclusively printed piece.

If you also noticed, the June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar has initially shown that the tile piece mentions a LEG GODT 2021 message (which means Play Well in Danish). Frankly, I prefer this particular version since it captures the essence of what it means to play with LEGO bricks. In any case, I guess that there might be regional variations with regards to this LEGO Swing Ship Ride (5006746) GWP considering that Children’s Day in the US is usually celebrated in June.

Whatever message it carries, the Swing Ship Ride is still a great freebie to have this month. Feel free to share in the comments below your first impression of this set, especially if you already received yours.

LEGO Mini Adidas Originals Superstars (40486) Spotted

After officially revealing the LEGO Adidas Originals Superstars (10282) brick-built trainer, it looks like LEGO is planning to offer a miniature version of this display set. Its much smaller counterpart, the LEGO Mini Adidas Originals Superstars (40486), has been spotted in the wild and is expected to be offered alongside its larger cousin.

Shared by Brickfinder, this particular LEGO Mini Adidas Originals Superstars set was believed to be spotted in South Korea as shared by a fellow eagle-eyed LEGO fan. Details are scant regarding its availability in other regions but after seeing it teased by LEGO via the designer video for set 10282, then we can be confident that it might be available worldwide as well. I’m inclined to believe that LEGO has plans of offering it as a gift-with-purchase (GWP) set to accompany the LEGO Adidas Originals Superstars (10282) on its launch date in July 1, 2021.

LEGO Mini Adidas Originals Superstars

I personally like how this mini-version turned out, starting from its box art and to the brick-built mini-shoe and minifigure. If you will look closely at the minifigure via the designer video, you might notice the sticker outline on its 2×4 shoebox costume. I have to say that it is way better if LEGO opted for a printed version of this. It’s nice to see this little guy along with other collectible minifigure characters such as the Brick Suit Girl and Brick Suit Guy from LEGO CMF Series 18 (71021). But I guess we just have to wait and see until next month to get a closer look.

In case you missed it, head over to LEGO Shop@Home to know more about the LEGO Adidas Originals Superstars (10282). Special thanks once again to the Brickfinder for sharing these images.

WATCH: LEGO Adidas Originals Superstar (10282) Designer Video

After officially revealing its brick-built trainer and display set, LEGO has now released an accompanying designer video for the LEGO Adidas Originals Superstar (10282). LEGO Designer Florian Müller gives us a walkthrough of how this iconic pop-culture symbol was translated into life-like, LEGO bricks. Watch the video below.

Love it or hate it (I know some LEGO fans are not that pleased with LEGO’s choice of product offerings lately), it cannot be denied that from an aesthetic standpoint, the design of the LEGO Adidas Originals Superstar (10282) is on a class of its own. And like the recently released LEGO Ideas Typewriter, this particular true-to-life set is designed with realism in mind. Built at a comparable US size of 7 1/2, the complete build features the shoe’s iconic shape and classic stripes, all combined to give that organic shape and feel. Florian and the other LEGO designers working on this model even went a step further by packaging this set in one unique box art that even mimics an actual shoe box.

The decorative elements such as the Adidas logo and Superstar brand are all accurately printed as well. Inquisitive LEGO builders may also find it interesting to discover that this set also introduces a new 5×5 dome element that may come in pretty handy in creating those smooth edges and corners.

Finally, and I guess you may have noticed it already while watching the video, LEGO seems to be teasing on an upcoming gift-with-purchase (GWP) set in the form of this miniature LEGO Adidas Superstar. Word has it that this little replica and minifigure might be a GWP that will be offered as part of an incentive of purchasing the LEGO Adidas Originals Superstar (10282) next month. I’ll talk more about it in my next post.

For now, in case you are interested to get this 18+ set, be sure to check out its corresponding product page over at LEGO Shop@Home. It is slated to arrive on store shelves and be available for purchase online starting July 1st. It clocks in at 731 pieces and will retail for $80.

LEGO Super Mario Bowser’s Airship (71391) Makes an Appearance

Third-party retailers are at it again with its unintended LEGO spills and leaks, and this time around Amazon Australia has given us a pretty good first look at a new and massive LEGO Super Mario Bowser’s Airship (71391).

LEGO Super Mario Bowser's Airship

This latest addition to the Nintendo-inspired theme seems to join the rest of the LEGO Super Mario summer 2021 sets, including its recently revealed Character Pack Series 3 (71394). Based on the following images and like other expansion sets before it, this LEGO version of Bowser’s Airship will also include play features that allow it to be connected to either the Mario or Luigi Starter Sets. The build itself has an expandable stern and bow, which is pretty cool actually. The set is based on Bowser’s flying fortress and includes brick-built versions of Rocky Wrench, Pirate Goomba, and Yoshi’s arch-enemy, the iconic Kamek the Magikoopa.

Clocked at 1,152 pieces, this next LEGO offering will retail at around $100 once it is available for retail on August 1, 2021. I will update this post once more information comes in or once it is listed over at LEGO Shop@Home.

UPDATE: As of this posting, the product listing for the LEGO Super Mario Bowser’s Airship has been removed from Amazon’s Australian shopping portal. It definitely looks like someone was way too excited to reveal this set.
