The LEGO Ninjago Movie Wave 2 Sets Revealed + LEGO Ninjago Movie Promotionals Now Up!

There has been a lot of activity in LEGO fandom during these past few days, especially prior to the launch of The LEGO Ninjago Movie in the US and the rest of North America. Though I haven’t seen it yet since the movie launch date is a week late here from where I am based, I’m pretty sure that it is a fun film to watch in spite of the mixed reviews that it is getting recently. Without revealing too much spoilers about the film, LEGO has released images of its second wave of LEGO Ninjago Movie sets said to be available towards the end of this year, courtesy of Promobricks.

We already have a hint about this second wave of sets, considering the reveal of the polybag, microversion of Cole’s Quake Mech (30379) back in July, and this time we now have a better look at its larger version. Additionally, we have one interesting set that is making a comeback: The Lloyd – Spinjitzu Master (70628). These and other new sets, along with the SDCC-revealed garmadon, Garmadon, GARMADON! (70656), are expected to hit the toy shelves just in time for the holidays.

Lloyd – Spinjitzu Master (70628)
Includes a Ninjago Movie Lloyd minifigure; estimated at $11.

 

Piranha Chase (70629)
Includes Kai, Misako, Ray, and Shark Army Gunner minifigures; estimated at $25.

 

Garmadon’s Volcano Lair (70631)
Includes Zane, Garmadon, Shark Army General #1, Shark Army Octopus, and GPL Tech minifigures; estimated at $65.

 

Cole’s Quake Mech (70632)
Includes Cole, Misako, Fred Finley, Crusty, and Shark Army Thug minifigures; estimated at $109.

The Lloyd-Spinjitzu Master (706218) is a welcome treat for all spinjitzu fans out there. Though we only have Lloyd as of the moment, we can fairly assume that the rest of The LEGO Ninjago Movie characters will be added to the roster of spinning masters as well. The Quake Mech (70632) is a spot-on representation of Cole’s actual battle mech in the film, and over all, probably best mech-themed set in The LEGO Ninjago Movie line-up. Though common sense might tell you that this is quite an unstable build due to the fact that it is only balanced on a large wheel more like a unicycle, the designers of the Quake Mech cleverly added a rod piece at the back of the wheel to add more stability to this build. We don’t have yet the exact price of these sets in USD nor their piece count, but given its size and value in Euros, we provided a rough estimate of how much it might sell in the US.

So, if you’re still holding on to that LEGO Ninjago Movie purchase up until now, you might be interested to know that the free Mini Green Ninja Mech Dragon (30428) polybag promotional is still up at shop.LEGO.com.  I’m not sure if this is the case in your local LEGO brand stores since it stocks might be out already considering that it comes as a freebie for a relatively small price range – a minimum purchase of any LEGO item of worth $35 and more.

To sweeten the deal, another promotional is currently live: the free and exclusive LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd minifigure (30609) polybag starting September 22 to October 8 or until supplies last. This exclusive Lloyd minifigure comes with a different torso print and a tasselled sword piece, as seen in the movie. As far as I know, this is the only Lloyd minifigure that comes with said torso print, showing his ninja garb beneath the green hoodie. You can have these minifigure polybag for free for any LEGO purchase of $50 and more at shop.LEGO.com, or at your local LEGO Store.

As of this writing, I can confirm that the Mini Green Ninja Mech Dragon (30428) is still up at shop.LEGO.com since it is still appearing in my cart upon checkout, though I’m not sure until when. So if you’re eyeing on that LEGO Ninjago Movie set that you are itching to have, then I suggest now is the time to hit that checkout button.

 

LEGO Store October Calendar Now Up!

The LEGO Store October Calendar has been released, and taking the spotlight is this year’s highly celebrated, and largest LEGO set of all time. Starting October 1, the LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon (75192) will be available to the general public both at LEGO Stores and shop.LEGO.com. This and much more will be happening throughout the month of October so let’s check it out.

October 1: Own the largest LEGO set ever produced – The LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)!

VIP members may have an early start beginning September 14, but the rest of the world and legions of LEGO Star Wars fans may now have the chance to have their own LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium (75192). Retailing at $800, the largest LEGO set to date comes in at 7,541 pieces and comes in two modes of play features: you can either play out classic LEGO Star Wars adventures with Han, Leia, Chewbacca and C-3PO, or enter the world of Episode VII and VIII with older Han, Rey, Finn and BB-8!

September 22 – October 8: Free The LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd (30609) minifigure polybag with a purchase of $50 or more, while supplies last.

First discovered on eBay a few weeks ago, this free exclusive minifigure comes with a unique printed torso, and a new tasseled sword piece.

October 1-31: Free LEGO Friends Keepsake Box (40266) with a LEGO Friends purchase of $25 or more, while supplies last.

The LEGO Friends Keepsake or Storage Box (40266) comes in at 105 pieces and actually functions as its name suggests. It sports two compartments: a covered, top compartment and a sliding drawer in front. It’s a pretty neat and functional build if I should say so, and comes at a relatively lower price point compared to other promotionals.

October 3-4: Free VIP Monthly Mini Model Build which is a Robot (40248)

To reserve your spot, simply register for the October MMB by visiting shop.LEGO.com/Minibuild-Registration starting September 15. The LEGO MMB is meant for children ages 6 to 14, and must be completely built in store.

October 10-25: VIP members get a Free exclusive VIP Set (40178) with a purchase of $125 or more, while supplies last. Also during this time, you get Double VIP points on all items.

If you recall, we first spotted this exclusive VIP set as a promotional in LEGO Store Shanghai in China back in July. It was given away then to all VIP customers with a minimum single receipt purchase worth 399 CNY and above. Thankfully, this dragon-inspired build is now available to all LEGO VIP members in the US for a minimum purchase of $125 worth of LEGO products. It seems to be a pretty nice set, especially with regards to the creative rendition of the Pick A-Brick Wall, LEGO box sets (though it uses stickers), and the collectible LEGO Store employee minifigure. As an added treat, all LEGO VIP members may once more take advantage of the Double VIP points promotional during this time.

October 14: Halloween Themed Building Event – Build Your Own Witch (40070).

Sign up to build and take home your very own Halloween-themed Witch model based on October 2013’s Monthly Mini Build which comes in at 22 pieces. Similar to the MMBs, in-store participation is limited to children ages 6 to 14, and registration will be on a first come, first serve basis due to its limited quantities.

As a last note, it’s good to know that the recently discovered LEGO BrickHeadz The LEGO Ninjago Movie Lloyd (41487) set will be available for purchase at all LEGO Stores in October.

First spotted as a Toys R Us exclusive, the LEGO BrickHeadz Lloyd set is also paired with a Master Wu (41488) BrickHeadz set both of which will retail for $9.99 each. We don’t have a definite date of release as of the moment as far as LEGO Stores are concerned, though the ones announced by TRU will be available starting October 1.

 

Another LEGO Star Wars Force Friday II Exclusive – The LEGO Star Wars Admiral Yularen (5002947) Minifigure.

We still have a day to go before this year’s Force Friday II is officially concluded, and with all of its announced offers and freebies, it seems that LEGO has another promotional exclusive hidden under its sleeve. We’re not really sure if this is a last minute call from the part of TLG or is just a response to the fact that the Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure polybag is already not showing at shop.LEGO.com once you check out, nevertheless, this latest minifigure promotional may prove to be attractive to the most avid collector of LEGO Star Wars minifigures.

Before the clock strikes 12 at midnight (EST) of September 3, or while supplies last, LEGO Star Wars fans (US and Canada only) with a qualifying purchase of $50 or more of any LEGO Star Wars products will receive a FREE and exclusive Admiral Yularen minifigure (5002947) as seen in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. The latest promotional is now up at shop.LEGO.com, though we’re not certain until when this freebie will be up considering the expected high volume of sales brought by Force Friday II.

The 4-piece minifigure features Admiral Yularen in his Imperial Security Bureau uniform. The said minifigure is valued at $5.99, but of course, the after-market value of this exclusive may go beyond that price point depending on the relative interest of the community. Unfortunately, as I mentioned earlier, if you’re still looking forward to bag that Scarif Stormtrooper minifigure, the possibility of grabbing one as of this writing is close to nil. However, LEGO is kind enough to throw in Admiral Yularen as an exclusive freebie as an apparent replacement for its first minifig promotional.

What do you think brick fans, do you still have any last minute LEGO Force Friday II shopping plans? Are you looking to bring home this minifigure? Share us what you think in the comments below.

LEGO Force Friday II Offers to Watch Out For.

We’re just three days away before the much awaited Force Friday II launches this weekend and LEGO is definitely not going to shy away from its reveals, sales and other cool promos that celebrate everything that is awesome from the galaxy far, far away. From the promise of a full reveal of its largest LEGO set ever, and the official announcement of several LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi sets, the anticipation for Force Friday II just keeps getting better and better.

This time, LEGO levels up the excitement with several exclusive Force Friday promos that any LEGO Star Wars enthusiasts wouldn’t want to miss. First off in North America, LEGO fans in the US and Canada will be glad to know that Double VIP points are back on all LEGO Star Wars purchases, plus great discounts on selected Star Wars sets. However, what could be the greatest selling point of these promotional is the exclusive Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure which will be given away for free with any qualifying purchases of $50 and above.

LEGO fans in Europe, particularly in Germany and France, will seem to have the better end of Force Friday deals. They will be receiving Triple VIP points in all LEGO Star Wars purchases, and will be receiving not one, but two exclusive promotional polybags for each qualifying purchase. For purchases of  €3 and above, fans will be receiving the same  Scarif Stormtrooper (40176) minifigure, and once the purchase hits the €55 (for purchases made in Germany) or €65 (France) mark, another sought after polybag set will be added to your shopping cart. First spotted in a local Wal-Mart store in Canada, we now have confirmation that the LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi First Order Heavy Assault Walker (30497) polybag will also be added as a Force Friday II promotional.

We don’t have word  yet on when and where will this LEGO TLJ polybag will hit US shores, but it is expected that we will get to see this cool microbuild of the behemoth walker landing in US stores just in time before The Last Jedi is released in December.

We’ll keep you posted on the best LEGO Star Wars Force Friday II deals that we can get our hands on, so be sure to keep tabs with us here at Brick Show. Thanks to Brickset for the tip.
