LEGO January 2017 Store Calendar Now Up!

LEGO definitely intends to begin 2017 with a blast with the recent release of its January Store Calendar. With none other than DC superheroes and heroines taking on the center stage, LEGO pushes through with its promise of releasing more sets under its most popular themes such as The LEGO Batman Movie, Ninjago, and DC Superhero Girls. Take a look at some of the highlights of next month’s LEGO Store Calendar.

January 16 to 31 

FREE LEGO Nexo Knights Knighton Rider (30376) polybag with a Nexo Knights purchase. Our best guess is that it doesn’t come with any amount threshold as long as it belongs under the LEGO Nexo Knights theme. Similarly, this promo also includes a FREE LEGOLAND Child Ticket Offer.

Here’s the Best LEGO Deals at Amazon Ahead of Black Friday – More than 30% Off On Selected Sets!

Unless you’re living like a hermit deep inside a cave or something, then it’s hard not to notice all the scurrying going on brought about by Black Friday. Though it may not have officially kicked in, some online retailers – such as Amazon – have already begun their deals as early as the start of this week. A few days back, we have posted information on a few LEGO sets that are rumored to be on LEGO’s Brick Friday list. Though we understand that LEGO doesn’t usually post this info earlier ahead of Brick Friday (LEGO wishes to somehow level the playing field), it is fun and perhaps helpful to speculate what sets will make it to the list. Last year, we saw a total of 45 sets offered for as much as 40% discount, with most of them offered at 30% off on the average. Similar to 2015’s LEGO promotional of the Gingerbread House (40139), fans can expect another seasonal set for this year as a free give-away for every single receipt purchase of $99 and above. The Snowglobe (40223) may be availed only from November 25 to 28 or until supplies last so expect some stiff competition to get this one.

While waiting for this year’s insiders’ list to appear again, we took the liberty of selecting the best LEGO deals that we found over at Amazon. Though this may seem to be unnecessary given the prominence and obvious advantages of most Black Friday deals, it should be noted however, that Amazon usually gives pieces of clues on what these items are. Like cookie crumbs scattered on a pathway, Amazon somehow ‘teases’ about these ahead of Brick Friday’s holiday shopping spree. If our theory is somehow correct, then these LEGO sets that we extracted from Amazon may likewise be included on LEGO’s Brick Friday list. This is just speculation though, but given that most customers have patiently waited for these promos, and that Amazon have already lowered the prices of certain LEGO sets – as much as 30% and more to be exact – then we are pretty sure that it is not far-fetched to consider that the online retail giant will either retain their prices or lower it further.

So with that of the way, here are some LEGO sets that you may find appealing, especially that they are listed for as much 30% off. Just click on the links below to bring you over at the Amazon page of that particular set or you may also check with shop.LEGO.com and compare their prizes.

40223_alt1 40223_alt2

To sweeten the deal, LEGO is giving away the exclusive, limited-edition Snowglobe (40223) for every qualifying purchase of $99 and more both in-store and online.  We’ll be happy to receive your feedback just in case you have any Brick Friday info to share.

Europe’s Largest LEGO Store Is Now Open!

Just a few moments ago, London’s first, and Europe’s largest LEGO brand store has finally opened its doors to the LEGO faithful. Though this piece of news is thousands of miles away from where we are, the excitement of the occasion is pretty contagious. For those of us who can’t make it physically at the LEGO London Store, we are thankful that groups such as the LEGO Collectors Club (LCC), The Brothers Brick (TBB) and Promo Bricks  are there to witness firsthand the events as they happen, giving us an inside look at what the largest LEGO store in this side of the world has to offer. In case you missed it, LEGO also had a live broadcast of the events both inside and outside of the store via their Facebook live feed.

Visitors were also glad to know that one of the latest LEGO Architecture Skylines sets slated for 2017 has been released in the LEGO London store ahead of January next year. Well, I guess it’s kind of obvious what set this is.

Other than the exclusive launch of the LEGO Architecture London 21034 at the LEGO London Store, the much talked about Lester minifigure has also been given away in a form of a raffle. Though not without complaints and issues with regards to the way it is made available (through a mystery scratch card that buyers will receive upon reaching a certain amount of purchase), there’s only a total of 275 minifigures of Lester that were officially given away so expect that this highly valued collectible minifig will be a prized possession for any LEGO fan.

Here’s LEGO’s official press release of the store’s opening together with some images courtesy of Sophie from LCC, The Brothers Brick, and Brick. Thank you for sharing these images for all LEGO fans to enjoy.

 

LEGO® London Flagship Store Opens Offering Unique Experiences for Fans of All Ages

The world’s largest LEGO Store opens with a focus on inspiring creativity through new experiences and fun, interactive workshops.

first-floor-interior-1-lego-store-london-embargo-17-11-16-copyright-lego

17 November 2016: Today The LEGO Group, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of play materials, has officially opened its new UK flagship store in central London’s popular tourist hot-spot, Leicester Square.

The Leicester Square store is the 131st LEGO store globally and is pushing the boundaries with many unique LEGO® firsts. The largest LEGO store in the world boasts exciting new experiences, such as a ‘Mosaic Maker’ which offers LEGO fans of all ages the opportunity to purchase their very own, one of a kind, personalised LEGO mosaic portrait. The machine captures your image and in under ten minutes printed instructions and the bricks required to complete the LEGO portrait are supplied to the customer. The London store is the first in the world to make this unique experience available.

John Goodwin, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the LEGO Group said: “We are excited to have finally opened the doors to the world’s largest LEGO store here in London. We want to inspire and develop children through creative play experiences – and this store is all about that. Here, parents and children can explore the many different LEGO products while at the same time getting a truly immersive experience of the LEGO brand.”

Inspiring creativity and developing the builders of tomorrow is a central theme for the store and this is encouraged with unique hands-on interactive brick experiences. These include ‘Master Builder Playtables’, where children will be free to build whatever they can imagine – inspired by iconic London landmarks and a range of exciting LEGO themes. There will also be a timetable when Certified LEGO Master Builders will visit the store sharing tips and tricks to help visitors build LEGO models and help inspire children to think outside the box when building their creations.

Through a partnership with Transport for London LEGO has created a life-sized London Underground tube carriage. The tube is the largest LEGO build in the store, is made up of 637,903 bricks and took 3,399 hours to build. The carriage offers fun photo opportunities and will be a must see for all the family.

Other highlights within the new London LEGO Store include:

  • Build a Minifigure Tower with Talking LEGO Minifigures – includes four different talking LEGO Minifigures including Lester, Royal Guard, Bobby the Policeman and Sherlock Holmes.
  • LEGO Minifigure Scanner – an interactive experience available from outside the store where people can find out which LEGO Minifigure they are.
  • Digital window display – state of the art screens that will show LEGO movies and clips.
  • Lester’s room housing a model of store mascot Lester for photo opportunities both inside and outside the store.
  • Brickadilly corner – an interactive information centre informing shoppers including in-store event schedules and highlighting retail experiences within the store.
  • Digital endless isle – a digital experience allowing shoppers to browse a digital catalogue of all LEGO sets available in store. It also calls for assistance by sending a message to the smart watches of store staff (photos courtesy of LCC).

We offer a unique brand experience and supplement the combined offer for consumers alongside our trusted retail partners and online retailers. The new Leicester Square store is the 14th LEGO Store in the UK,” says Glenn Abell, Vice President and General Manager, Direct-to-Consumer EMEA.

Here’s Some 2016 LEGO Brick Friday/Cyber Monday Teasers Worth Mentioning.

November 25 to 28 marks another LEGO store sale where fans can get as much as 20% off on a variety of selected LEGO sets. Dubbed as Brick Friday and Cyber Monday, this sales event is a great way to own that LEGO set that you’ve been eyeing on for quite some time at discounted prices. For this year, LEGO has teased about this event via its European shop.LEGO.com site though it does not say much about the sets that will be offered.

However, we may have some clues on what sets will be included in the list of the online offers courtesy of Hoth Bricks. According to what they picked up, these are the sets that are confirmed to be included in the list. Take note that it’s possible that the entire list will not be revealed until the 25th of November. For those who are yet to cross out the LEGO Nexo Knights Jestro’s Volcano Lair (70323) or the LEGO Creator Volkswagen T1 Camper Van (10220) from their wishlist, then this is the best time to do so.

On top of this, it is great to know that November 25 also marks the start of another LEGO exclusive that entitles buyers to a FREE, limited edition, LEGO Snowglobe (40223). The free exclusive will be given away for a minimum purchase of $99 and above of any LEGO products via in-stores or online. The price point may be somehow higher than the usual, but since it is part of the Brick Friday/Cyber Monday deals, then it is definitely worth it.

LEGO NINJAGO Stone Armour Cole (5004393) Now Available at Toys R Us!

For those of you who are fans of NINJAGO and/or are fond of collecting polybags, you seem to be in luck due to these most recent reports.

Allegedly, the Stone Armour Cole set (5004393) is now available at Toys R Us, reportedly from the price of $7.99, with Canadian stores apparently giving the item away with $25+ purchases. This information comes according to The Brick Fan, who originally recieves this information from a reader.

As such, this is not 100% confirmed and could simply be an isolated incident (there’s been countless times that individual stores don’t follow nationwide promotions), but if this is a figure that interests you I’d imagine it’s still worth a look next chance you get.

LEGO Ideas Wall-E (21303) and Other Popular Sets Retiring Soon.

In case you’re eyeing for that LEGO Ideas Wall-E or UCS Star Wars Sandcrawler for quite some time already, you may want to make up your mind right away. LEGO’s online store has recently rolled out its next sets slated for retirement anytime soon. All regional sites of shop.LEGO.com, except that of North America as of this writing, have already updated their listing, and have tagged a handful of impressive sets that are retiring soon, including our personal favorite, Wall-E .

lego-retiring-sets

Though the US and Canada regional sites have not listed these sets yet, we can be pretty sure that they will be updated soon. Frankly, LEGO does not readily announce when a set will exactly be retired. We can only have a hint of its impending retirement once it is tagged as ‘Retiring Soon’. If that happens then we can only hope for LEGO to either come up with a sort of a rehash similar to what they did with the LEGO Star Wars Death Star 75159, or click your way through various exorbitant eBay offers. Alternatively, Amazon also offers these sets for sale for good measure – plus at great discounted prices. You may want to check out these links as well.

LEGO December Store Calendar Now Up – New LEGO Disney Moana Set Revealed!

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

There is something special with LEGO’s December Store Calendar. Before we hit theaters on November 23 to watch Disney’s latest Polynesian princess and her demigod companion, LEGO was kind enough to give us a glimpse on its latest set dedicated to the adventurous spirit of Moana. Tagged as LEGO Disney Moana on the High Seas (41150), the set features a mini-doll version of Moana, Maui in his big-fig form, Moana’s pet chicken HeiHei, and a raft.

41150-1

It’s interesting to note that Brickset has updated its database to include another LEGO Disney Moana Set named as Moana’s Island Adventure (41149). We can only surmise that since it is tagged as a ‘house’ this may probably refer to Moana’s island home village where we can see some of her relatives like Gramma Tala, and her parents Tui and Sina. I hope that LEGO has more sets slated for Disney’s Moana since the film itself has plenty of interesting scenes that  will be pretty cool rendered in LEGO bricks – imagine a band  of crazy, coconut-armored Kakamora in their colorful minifig versions aboard their pirate ship. Well, we can always hope.

Here’s the December LEGO Store Calendar, followed by a breakdown of all its key highlights. Click on the images for a closer look.

Other than the LEGO Disney Moana on the High Seas (41150), the LEGO December Store calendar has also officially included the latest LEGO Batman Movie Batcave Break-In set (70909) and the DC Superhero Girls Superhero High School (41232). This could mean that we might see more reveals anytime soon or before the year ends.
