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!

Check Out the February 2020 LEGO Store Calendar and Related Promos

The month of February is just around the corner, and LEGO Stores are gearing up for its next wave of promotions that will level up our LEGO shopping experience. The February 2020 LEGO Store Calendar puts the spotlight on the next LEGO Ideas set that most of you are probably excited for. Read on for the neat promotions and incentives that are up for grabs next month at your local LEGO Store.

Free Exclusive Space Patch for LEGO VIPs

Promo period: February 1 – 9, 2020

February 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

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. If you remember back in May last year that LEGO also offered a similar promo as an incentive to those who bought the LEGO Creator Expert NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander (10266). I’m not really into collecting patches but if I will have my way, I will still prefer to have a free and exclusive LEGO set to go along with my new LEGO Ideas ISS. This latest Space Patch will be available from February 1 to 9 both online and in-store or until supplies last.

 

Free LEGO Hidden Side Drag Racer (40408)

Promo period: January 24 – February 9, 2020

February 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

If you’re planning to get the LEGO Ideas ISS, then be sure to check this next freebie in your cart. The LEGO Hidden Side Drag Racer (40408) promo has gone live already starting last Friday and you can still get this one until February 9. Qualifying purchases of any LEGO products worth $45 and more will entitle you to this set, or while supplies last.

 

Free LEGO Friends Chocolate Box and Flower (30411)

Promo period: February 7 – February 14, 2020

February 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

Here’s another brick treat just in time for Valentine’s Day. From February 7 to 14, any single-receipt purchase of $35 and more will allow you to bring home a free LEGO Friends Chocolate Box and Flower (30411) polybag. At 75 pieces, it’s a nice desk accessory to celebrate Happy Hearts Day. If you time your LEGO purchases with the intention of getting the LEGO Ideas ISS and its exclusive VIP patch at the same time (granted that supplies are steady), then the best time to get it will be from February 7-8. Making your purchases during these dates is a sure way to bag all these freebies.

 

Explore the New 2020 LEGO City Sets

February 1 to 29, 2020

February 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

Visit any LEGO Store near you through the entire month of February to have a hands-on, try-before-you-buy experience with the latest 2020 LEGO City Police sets. New play features include the use of magnets (such as those found in the LEGO City Helicopter Chase (60243) and Police Monster Truck Heist (60245)), lights and sounds (Police Station (60246) which is available with double VIP points until January 31) and parachutes (Parachute Arrest (60208) and Sky Police Air Base (60210)) for your LEGO City Police minifigs. It’s a great way to have a feel of these play features before you decide to buy them.

 

Adult Valentine’s Bear Build and Take Event

February 11, 2020

You may want to hurry and register for this one. Specifically for AFOLs only, this Valentine’s Bear Build and Take event is happening on February 11 at the local LEGO Store near you. Build an adorable mini Teddy Bear with a customizable heart for someone special just before Valentine’s Day. This event is intended for participants 18 years old and above, and pre-registration is required starting February 4.

 

Build, Unbuild and Rebuild

February 20, 2020

Visit your local LEGO Store between 4–7PM of February 20 to learn how to Build, Unbuild and Rebuild with any LEGO set. With a Brick Specialist leading the way, the possibilities on what children can create are just limitless. All participants will receive a small gift for participating. Pre-registration is required and will start on February 4 in stores
only. This event is intended for ages kids 6–14.

The LEGO Ideas International Space Station (21321) will be joined by the LEGO Creator Expert Old Trafford – Manchester United (10272) on their launch day on February 1 (for non-LEGO VIPs).  And with all the promos and in-store events lined-up in the February 2020 LEGO Store Calendar, I’m certain that fans will not leave any LEGO Store empty-handed.

Here’s a Look at the Roster of 2020 LEGO Polybags To Watch Out For

LEGO keeps the roster of reveals rolling with these latest polybag sets to watch out for next year. Following the announcement of its first wave of 2020 sets including those from the LEGO Creator, City, Ninjago and Architecture themes just to name a few, Brickset has now shared a handful of thumbnail images from LEGO featuring their 2020 LEGO polybags.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a fan of these LEGO polybags and some of these are surely worthwhile to keep. Though we only have some visibly downgraded thumbnail images to look at, we can still make sense of what to expect from them. I’m particularly looking forward to those LEGO Speed Champions Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO (30342), LEGO Star Wars Poe Dameron’s X-wing Fighter (30386), and LEGO Marvel Superheroes Captain Marvel and Nick Fury (30453) polybags just to name a few. As for most LEGO fans and collectors, these polybags offer a practical, cost-effective way of getting those minifigs that you really like. Plus some of them come with pretty impressive micro-builds of their larger counterparts so its nice to throw them into your collection as well.

Check out this collection of 2020 LEGO polybags and let me know what you’ll be your first-day buy among them. Special thanks to Promobricks for providing additional info. I’ll be updating this post once better, clearer images of these polybags are available.

LEGO Star Wars Creativity Sets Now Available via Amazon

For those of you who missed out on this year’s first wave of LEGO Star Wars polybags, then this might be the best time to get all three of them. Amazon currently lists three LEGO Star Wars Creativity Sets that include three of these LEGO Star Wars polybags plus some nice LEGO stationaries that are worth keeping.

These Creativity Sets include the LEGO Star Wars Naboo Starfighter (30383), Podracer (30461) and TIE Fighter (30381) polybags. Each of these sets is bundled together with a premium, 198-page notebook with a 4×4 plate, and a black gel pen accentuated with 2, 1×4 plates that can be connected on to the notebook or stylized with any minifigure or LEGO piece of your fancy.

Each of these LEGO Star Wars Creativity Sets retails for $24.99 USD and is currently available via Amazon. It’s a great holiday gift for anyone, plus the fact that it comes with these early 2019 LEGO Star Wars polybags is a plus if you’re the completionist type for these microscaled sets. If you recall, the Naboo Starfighter (30383) is a sort of shoutout to one of the earliest LEGO Star Wars sets released in the late 90s. The Podracer (30461) is one of the 20th-anniversary LEGO Star Wars sets that were released to commemorate the release of the early LEGO Star Wars sets. The TIE Fighter (30381) on the other hand, was released in connection with 2018’s May the 4th celebrations.

November 2019 LEGO Store Calendar Promos and Highlights

LEGO has already released its November 2019 LEGO Store Calendar giving us an overview of the promos and events that will happen this month. The calendar highlights the shop by interest feature of LEGO Shop@Home, which is a helpful kind of filter especially for those new in LEGO. Same as before, let’s take a closer look at some of the things that we can expect from our local LEGO store this month.

Free LEGO Creator Reindeer (40434) With Purchases Over $35 USD

November 2019 LEGO Store Calendar

This free polybag is basically a rehash of 2016’s seasonal freebie which is the Reindeer (30474), so if you missed out on this one now is a great time to get it. This free LEGO Creator Reindeer (40434) will automatically appear in your shopping cart from November 4 to 17 once your LEGO purchases reach $35 and above.

Free Exclusive LEGO Christmas Tree (40338) With Purchases Over $120 USD

November 2019 LEGO Store Calendar

Last September, it was revealed that this holiday season’s gift-with-purchase (GWP) set will be in the form of the LEGO Christmas Tree (40338). It is now finally confirmed that this GWP set will be an incentive for those who will be making their LEGO purchases during this year’s Black Friday sales from November 29 to December 2. Expect this 392-piece set to be added to your cart during these dates when your LEGO purchases reach $120 and more.

#BuildtoGive Holiday Campaign

November 2019 LEGO Store Calendar

LEGO is bringing back its charitable campaign from last year, in the form of #BUILDTOGIVE. The idea is basically straightforward: the LEGO Group will donate one LEGO set to charity for every #BuildtoGive ornament that is built either at home with LEGO bricks and shared via social media with #BuildtoGive, or in a participating store. The LEGO Group aims to donate a total of one million LEGO sets (estimated at $10,000,000 USD) to children in need around the world. It’s a great way to share our love and passion for the LEGO brick this holiday season.

Pick & Build Wall Holiday Gifts

From November 11 until Christmas Eve, the LEGO Store’s Pick & Build Wall will feature holiday-themed builds that you can purchase as a gift or as fun, stocking stuffers for the little kiddos. Be aware though that this unique building experience may only be limited to select LEGO Stores so be sure to ask your LEGO Brick Specialists for details.

2019 Black Friday Sales

Be sure to check with your local LEGO Store or at LEGO Shop@Home for this year’s LEGO Black Friday deals. We don’t have info yet on which sets will have the Black Friday tag so be sure to check with us for more updates.

LEGO Stores Opening This Fall

LEGO fans will be pleased to know that LEGO is opening or has already opened additional LEGO Stores across the US. If you’re living near these areas, then be sure to check the following LEGO brand stores.

  • St. Johns Town Center, FL
  • Town Center at Boca Raton, FL
  • Destiny USA, NY
  • Smith Haven Mall, NY
  • CF Rideau Centre, ON

 

The November 2019 LEGO Store Calendar also puts the spotlight on this month’s release of the LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils (21320) set. Retailing for $59.99, this set comes in at 910 pieces and features three, museum-worthy prehistoric builds. You may also want to check LEGO’s recommended holiday gifts that sell for $9.99 such as select LEGO Star Wars Microfighters, the LEGO Movie 2 Unikitty’s Sweetest Friends EVER (70822), and the LEGO City Arctic Exploration Team (60191) to name a few.

Build Your Own LEGO Star Wars Mini Droid Commander (75522)

Last month, I reported on another gift-with-purchase set that will accompany your next LEGO Star Wars purchase. So if you’re eyeing to buy that massive LEGO Star Wars UCS Imperial Star Destroyer (tongue in cheek), or any particular Star Wars set of your fancy, then you might want to hold on to your horses for a bit. As of this posting, details about the availability of the LEGO Star Wars Mini Droid Commander (75522) is still scant – in fact, it was not even mentioned in this month’s LEGO Store Calendar. For all we know, this next LEGO freebie may be part of LEGO’s Triple Force Friday’s promotional in October, or we could see it released earlier – its all speculations at this point.

However, what we are certain about is that you can start building your own Mini Droid Commander with this set of instructions now available for download from LEGO’s Customer Service portal. LEGO was kind enough to upload the PDF file of this mini collectible’s building instructions ahead of the polybag’s release. Click on the images below or you may alternatively download it right here.

Mini Droid Commander (75522)

As you can see, the Mini Droid Commander has approximately 60 pieces, including the exclusive 2×8 20 Years of LEGO Star Wars commemorative plate. Apart from this, the rest of the pieces does not seem to be too hard to find. You may also replace the buzzsaw minifigure accessory if you do not have that yet in your inventory of LEGO parts.

Be sure to be on the lookout for the LEGO Star Wars Mini Droid Commander (75522) polybag in your local LEGO store. Just give us a heads-up if in case you spot this on your radar. Thanks to Hoth Bricks for the tip.

New LEGO Xtra Christmas Accessories (40368) Revealed

The holiday shopping spree is almost about to begin and LEGO is certainly stocking up on those Christmas-inspired sets whatever form possible. After the introduction of this year’s first LEGO Toy Soldier Ornament (853907), we now have another set entry that will add some holiday fun to that next LEGO building project that you might be working on. In addition to LEGO’s relatively new line of polybag accessories, the LEGO Xtra Christmas Accessories (40368) is exactly what it is: a collection of yuletide LEGO elements and pieces that are worth to keep.

Christmas Accessories (40368)

Coming in at 32 pieces, the LEGO Xtra Christmas Accessories (40368) is expected to retail for $3.99 USD and will be available sometime next month. The main selling point of this polybag will undoubtedly be the Husky figure and also perhaps the pair of gold pearl fences.

The LEGO Xtra polybags is a great way to stock up on those LEGO pieces that may come in handy. The line-up also features Sea, Botanical, and Streetlights pieces, and even stickers and playmats. To know more about these polybags, just click on the following links below.

LEGO Star Wars Mini Droid Commander Promotional Coming in September

From the looks of things, there is another gift-with-purchase (GWP) set slated to be released next month to add to your LEGO Star Wars collections. If you recall earlier in April, we saw this year’s first LEGO Star Wars GWP in the form of the mini Battle of Hoth 20th Anniversary (40333) promotional set. The set features the exclusive 20 Years of LEGO Star Wars promotional tile piece, plus a nice micro-scaled build of an AT-AT and a pair of Snowspeeders. As it seems, another LEGO Star Wars GWP is on its way to LEGO Stores according to a report from Stonewars. The source of the info came from an Instagram post of what seems to be a snapshot from a LEGO Store promotional flyer highlighting the LEGO Star Wars Mini Droid Commander.

The LEGO Star Wars Mini Droid Commander can easily pass for a polybag promo coming in at approximately 40+ pieces. It features an R2-D2 minifigure, plus microbuilds of a Gonk and Mouse Droid figures atop of a brick-built platform. Similar to the Battle of Hoth 20th Anniversary set, the Mini Droid Commander also sports the exclusive commemorative tile which truly makes this microbuild standout. It’s a great display set especially if you happen to purchase its larger counterpart the LEGO Star Wars Droid Commander (75253). Here’s a rendering of the Mini Droid Commander using Stud.io courtesy once again of Stonewars.

LEGO Star Wars Mini Droid Commander

Since the month of September is just around the corner, we can expect more info to trickle down the pipes on when and how we can avail of this promotional. It’s not a longshot to consider that perhaps we can expect this to be officially revealed via the LEGO Store Calendar for September. Be sure to keep tabs with us for more updates, and for the latest LEGO Star Wars sets available out there, be sure to visit shop.LEGO.com.

LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary Obi-Wan Kenobi Collectible Minifigure Revealed

Following the reveal of the LEGO Star Wars 2oth Anniversary Podracer (30461) and Snowspeeder (30384) polybags, fans can expect another collectible that celebrates 20 years of LEGO Star Wars. Thanks to a local eBay listing,  we now have a look at the LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary Obi-Wan Kenobi Collectible Minifigure (30624) expected to arrive anytime soon.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Collectible Minifigure

Obi-Wan Kenobi Collectible Minifigure

This next LEGO Star Wars collectible takes its cue from the first Obi-Wan minifigure that was released in LEGO Star Wars Landspeeder (7110) from 1999. It also comes with a buildable stand featuring a printed base with the exclusive 20 Years of LEGO Star Wars logo. This is similar to other collectible minifigures included in the line-up LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary sets.

We have no other info as of press time regarding the availability of this polybag, but Toys N Bricks surmise that this Obi-Wan Kenobi Collectible Minifigure (30624) may be available as an upcoming LEGO promo. LEGO in the past has similarly released several related promotional CMFs including the Han Solo Mudtrooper (40300), DJ (40298) from The Last Jedi subtheme, and the Scariff Stormtrooper (40176) and R3-M2 (40268) both from Rogue One. All of these minifigs were given away for free for qualifying LEGO purchases worth $30 to $50 USD. So it is not far-fetched to consider if this Obi-Wan collectible will have the same treatment.

We’ll be on the lookout once news about this new LEGO Star Wars collectible breaks out. For the meantime, be sure to check out the rest of the LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary sets by clicking on the links below. These links will bring you directly to Amazon in case you haven’t made up your mind yet in purchasing them.
