LEGO Ensures Product Availability In Spite of Pandemic

After the good news of the gradual re-opening of US LEGO brand stores, LEGO ensures product availability amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Considering that the current pandemic has driven a sort of a ‘building trend’ among the LEGO fan community while staying home, coupled with certain adjustments in employee practices, have led to the possibility that consumer demand may outpace LEGO’s capacity to ensure product availability. In response to this, the LEGO Group has released a statement underscoring its efforts in making sure that these much-anticipated sets will still roll out as planned.

During the past few months we have seen a strong demand for our products as families and hobbyists turn to building to help them get through this difficult period. As a result, we have been working incredibly hard to make sure that our products are available online in our stores and our retail partners’ ecommerce sites.

We have been fortunate that our factories in Europe and Asia continue to operate. Our factory in Mexico has been closed for the past few weeks after the Mexican government ordered all non-essential manufacturing sites to close while the country focussed on preventing the spread of the virus. We have been using our full global supply chain to ship products to all markets and fulfil orders as best as possible.

While COVID has created a very dynamic and uncertain environment, at this stage it hasn’t impacted decisions about when to retire products.

The COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged the entire globe, with global and local economies badly hit by closures and shelter-at-home or stay-at-home orders by governments to contain the pandemic. In compliance with these orders, the LEGO Group opted to comply with these local orders, including the temporary shutdown of its production plant in Mexico. However, with the continuous operation of its European and Asian factories, we are assured that current and upcoming LEGO sets are still on their way to your nearest LEGO brand store.

You may still choose to do your LEGO shopping online and to check out the latest LEGO sets around, be sure to visit LEGO Shop@Home.

US LEGO Brand Stores To Re-Open Starting Today

Its been almost two months since LEGO brand stores across the globe were closed due to the raging COVID-19 pandemic. As most of us were forced to stay at home for months, there’s a bit of hope that things are starting to enter the new normal, including among other things, the gradual re-opening of US LEGO brand stores.

The news came in via the LEGO Ambassadors Network, where three particular LEGO brand stores will be fully open to the public, with certain limitations and strict observance of physical distancing measures to be implemented. For example, the Pick-A-Brick Wall and Build-A-Minifigure are still not available in these stores, while remaining US LEGO brand stores will only be available for curbside pick-up of sets starting today. Just to be sure, you may inquire first at the LEGO store near you to confirm if your preferred set is currently available. Here’s the official announcement from LEGO via LAN. And as always, you can still visit LEGO Shop@Home if you wish to make your LEGO purchases online.

May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar Highlights and More

May the 4th is just around the corner, as highlighted by LEGO’s May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar. And in keeping up with this year’s busiest week for LEGO Star Wars fans, LEGO is now doing its share of promotions and offerings from the galaxy far, far away.

Now just a word of caution – I am not encouraging all of you to go out there for a frenzied shopping spree to get the latest Star Wars merch. Since LEGO and other establishments have complied with the government’s marching orders to stay at home then, by all means, let’s continue to do so. So until such time that we ease up on our quarantine guidelines, LEGO has made it clear that it will keep its 150+ stores around the world temporarily closed until further notice.

But of course, we don’t necessarily need to remove the fun from this otherwise festive occasion. LEGO Shop@Home is still up and running and we can still enjoy the many LEGO freebies that LEGO has to offer. With that out of the way, let’s check out the details of next month’s LEGO promotional and freebies. You may also download a PDF version of the May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar via LEGO.com.

LEGO Star Wars UCS  A-Wing Starfighter (75275)

May 1 onwards

May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

This year’s LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series offering will be the A-Wing Starfighter (75275). Coming in at  1,673 pieces this set will retail for $199.99 starting May 1.

 

Free Limited-Edition LEGO Star Death Star II Battle (40407) Set

May 1 to 4, 2020

The LEGO May the 4th gift-with-purchase (GWP) set has been revealed last week, and it pays homage to that trench run scene aboard the Empire’s Death Star II straight from Episode 6 Return of the Jedi. This LEGO Star Wars GWP set will only be available from May 1 to 4 or until supplies last. This micro build will be added to your cart automatically once your LSW purchases reach $75 or more, so I hope you don’t miss out on this one.

 

Double VIP Points  on All LEGO Star Wars Sets

May 1 to 4, 2020

May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

Double VIP points are back for all LEGO Star Wars purchases. If you’re eyeing on those sleek LEGO Star Wars helmets or that cute little D-O (75278) set, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth with the double VIP points that come with them.

 

Free LEGO Mother’s Day Card (5005878)

May 4 to 10, 2020

May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

LEGO is one with the world in celebrating this year’s Mother’s Day. And of course, you can always express your love to all the super moms out there with this lovely buildable token. This offer will be available from May 4 to 10 and will be added to your cart once your LEGO purchase reaches $40 and above.

 

Free LEGO City Beach Buggy (30369)

 May 18 to 31, 2020

If you plan your purchases carefully for May, then chances are, you can still get this nice LEGO City polybag for free. For the same minimum single-receipt purchase of $40 and above of any LEGO set or merchandise, this beach combing mini build will be included in your cart upon checkout. I’ve always been a fan of polybags especially those from the LEGO City theme, so this one will be a nice part of any collection.

 

Though the first week of May is predominantly for LSW fans, you’ll be glad to know that some of the LEGO Minions sets are now available including other film-inspired sets such as the LEGO DC Superheroes Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157) and the LEGO Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger (42111). For CMF collectors, the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 20 (71027) is also available as well.

And while we’re waiting for this pandemic to be somewhat under control, LEGO has launched its #LetsBuildTogether campaign to help LEGO fans and families have a better home experience during these trying times. For more info, you may visit LEGO.com/LetsBuildTogether. You may also want to check out Tyler’s series of video tutorials called Quarantine Creations for more inspiring builds.

Keep safe and happy building!

April 2020 LEGO Store Calendar Now Available

Allow me to begin by saying that next month’s LEGO Brand Store Calendar is noticeably underwhelming – and for a very good reason. Considering the global pandemic caused by the notorious COVID-19, all LEGO brand stores are effectively closed until the first half of April. However, that does not deter LEGO from making our Spring Break a bit more fun, even at home. You may still want to check out the April 2020 LEGO Store Calendar and what freebies are in store together with your next LEGO purchase. You may download a PDF copy, or view the gallery below.

As you may notice, the April 2020 LEGO Store Calendar is pretty much bare, with LEGO only giving emphasis on the freebies that it will offer via LEGO Shop@Home. In fact, two of these have been offered already since last week, with one promotional item to expect during the first half of April. I am still optimistic though that the LEGO store closures that we are experiencing will not last long beyond April, and I hope that normal store operations, and our lives in general, will soon be back on track.

At the most, we can be excited about the upcoming LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay (21322) which will be most likely released via LEGO’s online shopping portal. Anyways, here are some of the LEGO freebies in store for us next month via LEGO Shop@Home or LEGO catalog phone orders.

Free Exclusive LEGO Easter Egg (40371)

For single-receipt purchases of any LEGO products worth $50 or more from March 23 to April 13 will entitle you to a free LEGO Easter Egg (40371). This gift-with-purchase set comes in at 239 pieces and features a chick mini build inside a decorative brick-built egg casing.

Free LEGO Easter Bunny (30550)

Similar to the LEGO Easter Egg, the LEGO Easter Bunny (30550) will also be offered during the same time period of March 23-April 13 but on a lower qualifying purchase. For every single-receipt LEGO purchase (online or via phone) worth $30 and more will allow you to bring home this hopping mini build as well. It somehow comes close to what LEGO stores offer with their Monthly Mini Builds (MMB).

Free LEGO Trolls Poppy’s Carriage (30555)

April LEGO Store Calendar

This final freebie for the month of April features a polybag promotional for the LEGO Trolls World Tour theme. For every single-receipt purchase of any LEGO Trolls set worth $35 and above will qualify you for a free LEGO Trolls Poppy’s Carriage (30555) polybag. Though the LEGO Trolls sets have been out since January, it is still nice that LEGO managed to throw in an incentive for LEGO fans who will opt to buy these new sets. Though some parts of the world manage to show the movie, the US is yet to schedule a film release tentatively slated for April 10.

As I mentioned earlier, all LEGO brand stores are closed until April 12 which practically suspends all in-store activities such as Make and Take events, minifigure swaps, and other socially engaging activities. Its a drag really, but it’s for the best of all in the long run.

Keep safe brick fans and keep on building!

LEGO Brand Stores To Be Closed Until April 12, 2020

I guess this is another piece of sad news, but something that we need to accept eventually. The LEGO Group (TLG) has announced that due to the global menace brought about by COVID-19, all of their LEGO Brand Stores will remain closed until April 12 or until further notice. This applies to all of its directly supervised and owned 154 global brand stores, much of it located in the US.

The announcement came in as a response to the updated directives given by the international community on a coordinated response against the COVID-19 threat. If you recall, LEGO initially said that it will close all of its 153 LEGO Brand Stores until March 27 as part of its compliance with government regulations. However, the company deemed it necessary to extend the said closure until April 12 or until further notice dependent on the local government’s instructions. Here’s the official update from LEGO:

An open letter from Niels B Christiansen, CEO, The LEGO Group

Updated March 27, 2020

To continue to protect the health of our communities, the LEGO® Brand Retail stores we own and operate will remain temporarily closed until at least April 12, possibly longer depending on government guidance. In locations where government restrictions aren’t currently in place, selected LEGO stores owned and operated by our partners will remain open. Those stores are taking all the necessary precautions and monitoring the situation closely.

This notice only applies to 150+ brand stores that LEGO owned and supervised, not including the LEGO certified stores. However, it still depends on the local government where the store is located, if the latter will allow continuous store operations.

It’s quite disheartening, especially to those who are looking forward to seeing the recently announced LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay (21322) up close and personal on April 1. Though TLG did not mention it specifically, we can expect that LEGO Shop@Home will continue to be operational but it will be realistic to expect major downtimes in terms of delivery due to the high volume of orders.

As of this posting, the US has now surpassed China for the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the world. That’s not a pretty picture to look at, and let’s continue to hope that all of these will eventually pass. Stay safe everyone and keep on building!

150+ LEGO Brand Stores to Close Amidst COVID-19 Pandemic

These are trying times indeed, and as the world frantically struggles to put an end to this modern-day pandemic, the LEGO Group is now doing its share to combat this scourge labeled as COVID-19. After announcing the temporary closure of the famed LEGO House in Denmark (one of the countries in the EU region severely hit by this pandemic), TLG is now making the sad but necessary move of closing its approximately 150 LEGO Brand Stores worldwide, with the exception of those located in China particularly in Shanghai and Beijing.

The said LEGO Brand Stores will be closed until March 27, or until such time that local health authorities see it fit to lift any bans or restrictions due to the novel coronavirus outbreak. Though LEGO assures us that their online store is still operational, I’m still not quite sure how the deliveries will commence if strict quarantine procedures are now in place in your respective communities.

Here’s what Niels Christiansen, CEO of the LEGO Group has to say about this news.

An open letter from Niels B Christiansen, CEO, The LEGO Group

The health and safety of children and communities worldwide is our top priority.

We are working extremely hard to protect our colleagues, our customers and of course, our youngest fans.

To reduce the risk of the virus spreading further, we’ve rapidly stepped up our efforts in every country where we operate.

We’ve temporarily closed the approximately 150 LEGO® Brand Retail stores we own and operate until at least March 27 in all countries except China. Our online store on LEGO.com remains open. Our retail store colleagues will receive their scheduled wages until this time.

Every colleague whose job allows them to work from home must do so. For colleagues whose job requires them to come to work, we are taking extraordinary measures to safeguard their health. For example, we will conduct temperature checks on employees and implement mandatory hand washing and sanitizing. We’ve rearranged our workplaces to ensure that colleagues do not gather in large groups and practice social distancing. Naturally, we have canceled all travel.

We’re monitoring the situation continuously and will take whatever steps are necessary to promote well-being.

One thing I am certain of is the awesomeness of the people who work at the LEGO Group and our fans. One of our company values is caring. The way everyone is looking after each other is truly inspiring. We’re listening to you, and we take strength from the fact that play and learning can bring families together for moments of joy, even at the most uncertain times.

We will get through this together.

Stay safe, stay home and stay strong.

Niels

 

As I write this post, our national government has placed our larger community in lockdown until the middle of April. And I’m sure that as you read this, you might be going through the same unpleasant experience of having your movements curtailed and extremely limited. With plenty of time in our hands as we stay home, I’m thankful that our LEGO bricks are here to somewhat lift our spirits. So in case you missed out on that one LEGO set that you so are so eager to have because of this outbreak, then just hang on tight and remember that things can still be pretty awesome wherever you are.

Keep safe everyone and keep on building!

March 2020 LEGO Store Calendar Out Now

LEGO has now published its March 2020 Store Calendar and with it, we can catch a glimpse of the various promos that will kick-start our spring brick-building. For starters, the upcoming LEGO DOTS customizable accessory kits take center stage in this monthly store calendar, together with other spring-themed building activities. Let’s check out the details.

Free Exclusive LEGO Trains 40th Anniversary Set (40370)

Promo period: March 1-15, 2020

March 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

We first spotted this set last month, with some sketchy details on when and how it will be available. Like other commemorative sets, this one will be exclusively available in all LEGO stores and at LEGO Shop@Home for a single-receipt, qualifying purchases of any LEGO merchandise worth $99 and above. Expect this to be popular among AFOLs especially those who are fans of LEGO Train sets. There are plenty of LEGO fan websites that already gave their thoughts about this set, and it only makes me more excited to have it. This is one set that I’m looking forward to adding to my collection.

Free LEGO DOTS Mini Frame (30556)

Promo period: March 9-22, 2020 

March 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

Further expanding the creative possibilities of the LEGO DOTS theme, LEGO is throwing another freebie with this exclusive polybag offering. Fans can expect this new LEGO DOTS Mini Frame (30556) to be added to their cart once their purchases reach a minimum of $35 or more anytime between March 9 to 22.

Free LEGO Easter Egg (40371)

Promo period: March 23-April 13, 2020

March 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

Here’s a cute, little Easter surprise from LEGO. Every LEGO purchase that you make from March 23 to April 13 worth $50 and above will entitle you to a free customizable LEGO Easter Egg (40371) set. Though we do not have official images of this promotional item, on the get-go we can see that its design is somewhat similar to what LEGO released in the UK back in 2004 (sets 4212850 & 4212852). Its retail value of $12.99 may also suggest that this free set will clock in at more or less 100 pieces. The brick-built chick is a cute addition to this freebie, with the yellow and green color scheme perfectly complementing the vibrant mood of spring. Be sure to check this out towards the last week of March if you want to bag this one.

Free LEGO Easter Bunny (30550)

Promo period: March 23-April 13, 2020 

March 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

It seems that LEGO intends this next freebie to complement its LEGO Easter Egg promo. For a minimum single-receipt purchase worth  $30 or more, you’ll get to add the LEGO Easter Bunny (30550) for free. It’s a pretty neat set to add to the LEGO Easter Egg, where you can have both sets once your purchase reaches a $50 price point.

Build. Unbuild. Rebuild

In-store event: March 11, 2020

Kids ages 6 to 14 can come to their local LEGO Store between 4-7PM of March 11 to participate in this in-store building event. As a token for participating, each child will receive a small gift. However, parents or caretakers must ensure that their children are pre-registered at their local LEGO Store starting March 6.

How Do You DOT?

In-store event: March 19, 2020  

Participants ages 6 to 18 can visit their local LEGO Store on March 19 to create their own LEGO DOT accessory and bring it home for free as a gift for their selves. However, LEGO DOT bracelets (sets 41900, 41901, 41902, 41903 & 41912) needed for these accessories are sold separately. This building event requires in-store pre-registration beginning March 6.

Other than the LEGO DOTS sets, there are plenty more to watch out for once March kicks in such as the LEGO Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163), LEGO Marvel Black Widow’s Helicopter Chase (76162), the LEGO Ninjago Golden Zane Minifigure Accessory Set (40374), and LEGO Fairground Minifigure Accessory Set (40373) to name a few. If you time your next LEGO purchase accordingly, it’s possible to get the commemorative LEGO Train 40th Anniversary Set and the LEGO DOTS Mini Frame in one go. It is also the same for the LEGO Easter-themed freebies since they are offered within the same promo period.

LEGO VIPs who are eyeing to get the LEGO Ideas International Space Station (21321) will be happy to know that LEGO is throwing in a limited-edition Space Patch for every purchase of the said set.
