More LEGO Super Mario Summer 2021 Sets Arriving Soon

It looks like we have confirmation on how LEGO intends to expand its 2021 portfolio of LEGO Super Mario sets, following the now-deleted listing from Romanian online store Auchan. Thanks to this tip, we now have an idea of what LEGO has in store for its LEGO Super Mario summer 2021 collection. This is not an all-inclusive set, and we can expect additional information to come out any time soon.

In the meantime, what we know is that we will be getting another expansion set in the form of a brick-built version of the Lakitu Heavenly World. It will feature Lakitu, Bullet Bill and Fuzzy, and will expect to retail for $40. We can also expect two new Power-Up costumes for Mario in the form of Frog Mario and Bee Mario each retailing for $10 similar to its predecessors. And finally, LEGO is further adding more characters in our LEGO Super Mario Adventures with its Series 3 Character Packs. This next wave of 10 blind bags includes Torpedo Ted, Bony Beetle, 1-Up, Scuttlebug, Parachute Bob-omba, Galoomba, Swoop, Boo, Amp, and Crowber.

There’s a good possibility that we can hear an official reveal from LEGO anytime soon, considering that this info has already been shared with third-party retailers. I’ll keep you posted once more related news comes in about this wave of LEGO Super Mario summer 2021 sets.

Huge thanks to @1414falconfan for the heads-up.

The June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar Features Ton of Freebies To Expect

The June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar has now been uploaded via LEGO’s servers and it looks like there’s plenty to expect at your local LEGO store at LEGO Shop@Home starting next week. The month of June marks the availability of most of LEGO’s H2 (or 2nd half of the year) offerings, and LEGO is throwing in a handful of promotional items as an incentive to tick that that next LEGO wishlist. Let’s take a look.

Free LEGO Ninjago 10th Anniversary BrickHeadz (40490)

Offer valid from June 1 to June 30, 2021; in-store only. 

June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar

It looks like Ninjago is now given the official BrickHeadz treatment, and the timing couldn’t be better. LEGO Ninjago now marks its 10th anniversary making it one of LEGO’s longest-running themes. And aside from the various exclusive LEGO Ninjago minifigures and sets that were announced to celebrate the occasion, LEGO is now throwing in its first BrickHeadz rendition of some of the most iconic characters of the theme. It is not exactly a freebie, but this 3-in-1 set comes in at a discounted price of $10 if you happen to have a single-receipt purchase of any LEGO Ninjago sets worth $85 and more from June 1 to June 30. Originally valued at $29.99, this BrickHeadz trio includes a rendering of Golden Lloyd, Nya Samurai X, and the Firstbourne Dragon. Please take note that this is an in-store offer, so better plan for your next LEGO Store visit.

 

Free LEGO Speed Champions McLaren Elva (30343) polybag

Offer valid from June 7 to June 20, 2021.

June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar

To celebrate the release of its larger cousin, the LEGO Speed Champions McLaren Elva (76902), LEGO is also throwing in a polybag for every single-receipt purchase of any LEGO set worth $40 or more, both in-store and online. You may also want to check out the next wave of LEGO Speed Champions to see what they have to offer.

 

Free LEGO Swing Ship Ride (5006748) for VIP Members

Offer valid for LEGO VIP members only from June 21 to 30, 2021.

June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar

Here’s a treat for LEGO VIP members. Any single-receipt, LEGO purchases worth $85 from June 21 to 30, 2021 will entitle you to this free LEGO Swing Ship Ride (5006748) set. We have little information about this freebie, especially about its piece count. But judging from its initial photos, we can see that the Swing Ship Ride comes on an 8×8 base that features a swing mechanism and a sticker that echoes LEGO’s founding principle of “LEG GODT” or “play well”. I’ll give you updates once more info comes in.

 

Free LEGO Blue VIP Keychain (854090)

Offer valid when you sign-up for the first time to become a LEGO VIP member. Promo runs from June 1 to December 31, 2021.

Throughout the second half of the year, LEGO is giving out the exclusive LEGO Blue VIP Keychain as an incentive for signing up as a LEGO VIP member. Its a great way to start your journey on great LEGO discounts, rewards, and other cool LEGO giveaways.

 

Free LEGO Bob Minion with Robot Arms (30387)

Offer valid from June 24 to July 11, 2021.

To mark the long-overdue release of Universal Pictures’ Minions: The Rise of Gru animated film, LEGO is also giving out incentives for those who will make their next LEGO Minions purchase. From June 24 to July 11, any single-receipt purchase of any LEGO Minions sets worth $40 will entitle you to this Bob Minion polybag. It’s a nice way to build your army of little yellow minions if you ask me.

 

I have to say that the offerings and promos listed in the June 2021 LEGO Store Calendar are pretty exciting. So be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home for the latest and upcoming LEGO sets next month.

LEGO DOTS Photo Holder Cube (30557) Promotional Set Now Up

If you missed it, the LEGO Online Store has been updated to include a new promotional. From May 23 to June 30, 2021, the LEGO DOTS Photo Holder Cube (30557) will be added to your shopping cart for free for a minimum single-receipt purchase of any LEGO DOTS, VIDIYO or Friends sets worth $40 and above.

This is a welcome surprise, especially for fans of the relatively new LEGO DOTS theme. The Photo Holder Cube was not mentioned in the May 2021 LEGO Store Calendar, so it’s nice to see LEGO throwing in a bit of LEGO shopping incentive.

Coming in at 109 pieces, the LEGO DOTS Photo Holder Cube (30557) features a customizable display set perfect for those small-sized photos or just even a note placeholder. And with the introduction of the latest wave of LEGO Summer 2021 sets, then there’s plenty of reasons to get that next LEGO set on your wishlist. Be sure to visit LEGO Shop@Home for more details.

LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi and the Great Protector (30454) Polybag Arriving Soon

The LEGO Customer Services portal has been updated, revealing an accompanying polybag for the LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi sets. These sets are currently available over at LEGO Shop@Home, and it’s good to know that TLG has also thrown in a polybag for the newest LEGO Marvel subtheme. The LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi and the Great Protector (30454) polybag has now been revealed, with its building instructions made available online.

LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi and the Great Protector

The polybag comes in at 55 pieces and features a mini version of the Great Protector as it is referred to in the MCU. As a scaled-down version of its larger counterpart in the Battle at the Ancient Village (76177), this polybag version highlights the same white and red color scheme for the water dragon on top of a decorative translucent light blue design plate first introduced this year in sets such as Iron Man vs Thanos (76170) and the aforementioned Battle at the Ancient Village (76177). This miniature dragon somewhat resembles and gives a similar vibe as that of 2017’s Green Ninja Mech Dragon (30428) polybag from the LEGO Ninjago Movie theme.

The LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi and the Great Protector polybag is also a great way to add the latest LEGO MCU superhero to your roster of superhero minifigs. It features Shang-Chi in his red, printed torso with a golden staff accessory, similar to how he is presented in other regular sets.

We’re still waiting for further information on where to find this polybag, and once we have it, I’ll update this post accordingly. In the meantime, you want to see and try to build this mini version of the Great Protector using these building instructions.

LEGO Super Mario Fuzzy & Mushroom Platform (30389) Polybag Revealed

It looks like Luigi will be accompanied by his first LEGO polybag expansion set. After the reveal of the LEGO Super Mario  Adventures with Luigi (71387), now comes another polybag in the Nintendo-inspired series. Similar to its predecessors, the LEGO Super Mario Fuzzy & Mushroom Platform (30389) offers a sort of expansion for the starter course set, with plenty of various elements and buildable figures.

LEGO Super Mario Fuzzy & Mushroom Platform

The catch though is that it might be a sort of third-party retailer exclusive as reported by Brickfanz. LEGO Super Mario fans in the UK may obtain this polybag as a sort of a gift-with-purchase set particularly over at Zavvi, GAME, and Smyths Toys. I’m not 100% sure if this will eventually land in the US, but it is most likely that the LEGO Super Mario Fuzzy & Mushroom Platform (30389) polybag will find its way to US LEGO Stores in the near future.

Coming in at 39 pieces, this latest polybag includes a scannable tile, a buildable Fuzzy character, and other obstacle course elements.

This polybag joins the rest of the LEGO Super Mario 2021 sets that have been revealed already. And in case you missed it, you may want to check out the rest of these offerings over at LEGO Shop@Home, or by clicking on the following affiliate links below.

LEGO Launches 2021 May the 4th Promotions

Just in time with the announcement of the new LEGO Star Wars UCS R2-D2 (75308) set, LEGO has also unveiled its 2021 May the 4th promotions and other pretty cool freebies. And similar to previous years’ promo, LEGO is now giving another iconic Star Wars scene a microscaled, diorama rendition. Aside from its cool selection of LEGO Star Wars sets up for grabs, LEGO Shop@Home has now been updated to include several of its May the 4th promotions which will be made available starting May 1st.

Free LEGO Star Wars Tatooine Homestead (40451)

May the 4th

Similar to its diorama predecessors such as 2020’s Death Star II Battle (40407) and 2019’s Battle of Hoth – 20th Anniversary Edition (40333), the Tatooine Homestead (40451) features a microscaled version of Luke Skywalker’s beginnings in his home planet of Tatooine. This miniature vignette depicts the Lars family home, a Landspeeder, a Sandcrawler with the desert dunes of Tatooine on its background, and the year 2021 featured on the center. This May the 4th promotional will be added to your cart for free for every single receipt LEGO Star Wars purchases made between May 1 to 5 worth $85 and above.

 

Free LEGO Star Wars Imperial Shuttle (30388) Polybag

May the 4th

As an in-store freebie, LEGO is throwing in this LEGO Star Wars Imperial Shuttle (30388) polybag for fans who will opt to visit and purchase at their nearest LEGO Store from May 1 to 5. This polybag will be added to your cart for free for every single-receipt LEGO Star Wars purchase worth $40 or more.

 

LEGO Star Wars Dutch Vander Minifigure VIP Sweepstakes

May the 4th

LEGO is also throwing in another minifigure as part of its LEGO VIP sweepstakes promo running from May 1 to 21, 2021. For a certain number of LEGO VIP points, you can have a chance of winning a LEGO Star Wars Dutch Vander minifigure. This comes encased in a collectible acrylic case together with a signed photo of Canadian actor Angus MacInnes who played the iconic role of Rebel Squadron Gold Leader Jon “Dutch” Vander. With regards to the minifigure, I really can’t say if it’s an entirely new minifig version of the Gold Leader since its looks very much the same as that of the exclusive minifigure that came with the LEGO Star Wars UCS Y-wing Starfighter (75181) from 2018.

Aside from these c0llectible freebies, we can also expect the usual LEGO Double VIP points for LEGO Star Wars purchases made from May 1 to 5. And if you want to maximize those valuable points, then you may want to consider adding to your must-have list these upcoming sets such as the LEGO Star Wars R2-D2 (75308), Imperial Probe Droid (75306), and Darth Vader (75304), and Scout Trooper (75305) Helmets.

Be sure to stay tuned for more May the  4th updates and promos. So what are you most excited about the LEGO Star Wars May the 4th promotions? Let us know in the comments below.

New LEGO Monkie Kid’s RC Race (40472) Set Revealed

The latest roster of LEGO Monkie Kid 2021 sets have been revealed at LEGO Shop@Home, and with it comes a budget-friendly set that includes an exclusive Monkie Kid minifigure added to the LEGO Monkie Kid’s RC Race (40472) set.

Introduced last year, the LEGO Monkie Kid theme comes in fairly large sets capturing the action-packed scenes in its tie-in animated series. Though it managed to offer a couple of promotional polybag sets last year in the likes of the LEGO Monkie Kid’s Delivery Bike (30341) and LEGO Monkie Kid Build Your Own Monkey King (40474)LEGO is still yet to officially offer a budget-friendly one for sale. And thankfully, we now have a relatively small set for retail that includes an exclusive minifigure version of the Monkie Kid, plus two other mainstay characters, Mei and Bull Clone Bob.

Read on for the full product description of this set which is also slated to be available on March 1st, retailing for $12.99. You may also click on the following affiliate link if you wish to add this to your wishlist.

Great for solo or group play, it features mini builds of Monkie Kid’s Cloud Roadster and Bull Clone Bob’s vehicle, plus a trophy presentation stage and a trophy element for Mei to present to the winning driver. The car toys, minifigures, stage, and accessories fit easily into a child’s backpack, ready for fun races wherever they go.

  • Let the races begin with this LEGO® Monkie Kid™ RC Race accessory set (40472) for kids, featuring mini builds of Monkie Kid’s Cloud Roadster and Bull Clone Bob’s vehicle.

The March 2021 LEGO Store Calendar Puts Vidiyo on Center Stage

The March 2021 LEGO Store Calendar has now been uploaded, placing its latest LEGO Vidiyo theme under the spotlight. Other than the full reveal of this latest AR-powered theme which is slated to launch next month, the promotional calendar also features several exciting freebies that LEGO fans can expect from their next LEGO purchase.  Let’s take a look.

Free Exclusive LEGO Amelia Earhart Tribute (40450)

March 2021 LEGO Store Calendar

This offer is valid from March 6 to 14, 2o21, or while supplies last. First discovered earlier this month, this limited-edition set celebrates the life and accomplishment of the legendary aviator Amelia Earhart when she flew over the Atlantic in 1932. This exclusive gift-with-purchase set features a red Lockheed Vega 5b on top of a brick-built display set bearing our heroine’s name. It also comes with our first-ever minifigure version of Earhart which will undoubtedly be a prized possession for minifig collectors. I’m not really sure what LEGO’s intention behind the release of this set since the timing of the release is a bit early if we want to recognize her iconic flight which happened in May of 1932. Nevertheless, it’s a great collectible set I wouldn’t mind added to my cart. The LEGO Amelia Earhart Tribute (40450) will be automatically added to your cart for free once your single-receipt LEGO purchase reaches $100 and above. This offer is available both in-store and online.

 

Free LEGO Seasonal Easter Bunny’s Carrot House (40449)

March 2021 LEGO Store Calendar

Just in time for this year’s Easter celebrations, the LEGO Seasonal Easter Bunny’s Carrot House (40449) is the next promotional item to be available from March 15 to April 5, 2021. This set will be yours for free for every single-receipt purchase of any LEGO products worth $60 and above. It features a carrot-themed house with plenty of interior details and a mini rabbit build. I can easily imagine the Carrot House to be a great complementary set for 2018’s Easter Bunny minifigure. Similar to other promos, the Easter Bunny’s Carrot House will be available both in-store and online.

 

Free LEGO Easter Chick (30579) Polybag

For a lower promotional price point, you can get a free LEGO Easter Chick polybag from March 15 to April 5, 2021, for every single-receipt LEGO purchase worth $40 and above. It’s a rather scaled-down, polybag version of 2020’s limited-edition exclusive LEGO Easter Egg (40371).

Other than these freebies, LEGO has heavily promoted the release of the LEGO Vidiyo sets that features a pretty interesting collection of minifigures coming from its BeatBoxes and Bandmates subtheme. As of date, we can expect six LEGO Vidiyo Beatboxes, and 12 additional Bandmates to be available come March 1st.

And finally, in case you missed it, the LEGO Creator Expert Porsche 911 (10295) has already been released to LEGO VIP members, and will also be available to the general public beginning March. Be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home for more information on other upcoming sets.
