Back in December last year, when LEGO began showing its latest additions to the City line for 2019 (early), we featured one polybag. It was a model for an ATV with fireman minifigure, one that fits right in with the fire-fighting theme of part of the new LEGO City sets.
While we initially surmised that the LEGO City Fire ATV (30361) was going to be conventionally available on its own, there was also the possibility that LEGO would use the polybag as part of a promo for the City lineup. The latter scenario came true with a new Shop@Home promotion.
In fact, there are two LEGO City polybags that are involved in this “free with purchase” promo for Shop@Home. The second polybag is the Road Worker (30357) which goes well with construction-themed City sets. It features the titular Road Worker minifig with radio and stoplight accessories, plus a buggy equipped with a multi-lighted roadwork sign.
As if it weren’t already obvious enough, this promotion entails getting one of these two LEGO City polybags free with a minimum LEGO purchase of $35. The purchase/s must be in City sets and done online in Shop@Home. Buyers need only enter a checkout code corresponding to their desired polybag.
For online checkout, the code for Road Worker (30357) is “CRW1” while the Fire ATV (30361) is “ATV1” (omit the quotes). This LEGO City promotion ends Thursday, February 28 (midnight).
LEGO is celebrating two decades’ worth of licensed “Star Wars” sets in epic style. Their latest products to commemorate that milestone, first seen in images last January and showcased for real during the NYTF, are all awesome brick-built love letters to the storied space opera franchise from Lucasfilm (and Disney).
While the major announcement had a big batch of LEGO Star Wars 20th anniversary sets, they’re not the only “Star Wars” sets around. More products such as the Duel on Starkiller Base set (75236) have been introduced as well. And now, LEGO’s working on introducing the little products, aka polybags.
Sharp observers at the New York Toy Fair found at least one new LEGO Star Wars polybag connected to the “20 Years” celebration. This is a micro-scale rendition of an already existing LEGO Star Wars 20 set, Anakin’s Podracer (75258). Say hello then to the 20 Years Podracer polybag (30461).
As expected of many polybag versions of larger LEGO sets, the Podracer (30461) is a significant yet effective simplification of the larger anniversary Podracer set (75258). There’s the racer capsule and the two pods. However the connector cables are absent, with only the clear-part central piece connecting the components together.
No word has been given on when this polybag will be released. The most likely answer will be that it will start as a free with purchase on stores and LEGO Shop@Home, included with a minimum purchase of LEGO Star Wars 20th anniversary sets. Eventually it’ll be sold by itself in shops when the promo runs through. Time will tell if this prediction follows through.
In June of last year, LEGO introduced to their consumers a new line of accessories for their existing product lineup. This was called LEGO xtra, and featured a wide variety of play enhancements for sets particularly of more “urban” lines like LEGO City.
The xtra polybags ranged from additional street signs and ornaments, to props for minifigure hands like mugs or pizza slices and fresh veggies, to play-mats with streets and roadside studs to anchor LEGO buildings on. While not entirely vital to having a great experience playing with LEGO, having “xtra” accessories just make things all the more better.
And now, just before last weekend, LEGO has added something new on their lineup of xtra polybags, as noted by German LEGO news source Promo Bricks. This pack of xtra extras (sorry, couldn’t resist the pun anymore) features one non-brick element that’s also part of the LEGO experience: decal stickers.
Now granted, many LEGO players don’t like having stickers on their bricks and pieces, preferring painted-on decals if it can’t be avoided. But if the LEGO piece in question can be designated for only one purpose in any instance of play, like a store signboard, then stickers are worth it.
The upcoming LEGO xtra Brick Stickers polybag (853921) has what its name says and more. The pack has five sheets’ worth of signage stickers for brick-building businesses, be it a pizza parlor, market, bakery or toy store to begin with. But like most of its other xtra sets, 853921 also has a selection of plastic bricks and LEGO elements, all of which have the general shape of signage that one can place decal stickers on.
Since the images of this new LEGO xtra pack have just been recently added to online servers, it probably won’t be long before Brick Stickers (853921) becomes available on Shop@Home and maybe even LEGO stores and retailers. No price has been given, though it can go from $3.99 to $7.99 following previous xtra polybag pricing.
While The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part finds itself in a sudden struggle to win viewers at the box office following a slump of an opening weekend this February, its various tie-in sets have already entered the market and are waiting to find their way into LEGO fans’ hands.
These sets of course range from full play sets to BrickHeadz figures to the small polybags, of which several have also been released for The LEGO Movie 2. Several of them have been described by name as “Mini Master-Building” sets, including one for the film series’ lovable main hero Emmet. The last word we had on the LEGO Movie 2 Mini Master-Building Emmet (30529) last December was that it had been popping up here and there on both Walmart and Target stores. Now however, LEGO branded stores in the UK have put this polybag front and center of a new free with minimum purchase promo.
As can already be surmised, LEGO Movie 2 fans can get their own Mini Master-Building Emmet (30529) polybag with a minimum total LEGO purchase of £35. The catch is that this one applies only to shopping visits at all physical LEGO Stores in the UK.
Now, this free with purchase promo is also happening on Shop@Home UK, only this time with a different polybag up for grabs: the Rex Dangervest Plantimal Ambush (30460). That’s some nice incentive to use both ways of shopping for LEGO in order to get “LEGO Movie 2” polybags for free.
Thankfully, a lot of the other “LEGO Movie 2” tie-ins are priced well-enough individually to reach the £35 minimum for one of those sets. That includes the Shop@Home exclusive Welcome to Apocalypseburg (70840) which should cover what’s needed for the Plantimal Ambush (30460) polybag when bought online in the UK.
“LEGO Movie 2” is now showing in cinemas, but is in need of more viewers.
In case you missed it, this year marks the 50th anniversary of LEGO Duplo – those oversized large bricks designed specifically for younger, smaller hands. And to celebrate 50 creative years of nurturing future builders, LEGO offers a new promotional to accompany those big, building blocks that you plan to purchase for your tiny tot. The LEGO Duplo Farm (30326) polybag is yours free, for every single receipt purchase of LEGO Duplo sets worth $20 and above. This latest LEGO Duplo promotional began last January 29 and will end this Thursday February 7, so you still have a couple of days to avail of this promo.
Each LEGO Duplo Farm random blind bag contains 4 LEGO Duplo pieces: two 2×2 Duplo brick, one Duplo flower and a random farm figure which could be a farm boy, farm girl, goat, hen and calf. It’s a great way to build your farm inspired Duplo set, especially if you plan to get the LEGO Duplo Farm Adventures (10869), Farm Pony Stable (10868) or the LEGO Duplo Farm Animals (10870).
This promotion is currently available in all US LEGO brand stores and at the US portal of shop.LEGO.com until this Thursday only. LEGO Stores in the UK and the rest of Europe all offers a similar promotional with the LEGO Duplo Numbers (40304) polybag.
The LEGO Movie 2 has its share of polybags to go around, with some of them already spotted at Walmart and Target stores. However, there are still some of these polybags that remains to be seen out there, particularly the LEGO Movie 2 Star-Stuck Emmet (30620) polybag. Just to be clear, the Star-Stuck Emmet (30620) polybag is a promotional item included with the upcoming LEGO Movie 2 video game set to be released on February 26 in the US, and March 1 in the UK.
From the looks of it, this is the only way to have the Star-Stuck Emmet (30620) polybag especially if you intend to purchase the LEGO Movie 2 video game. You can also opt to check with eBay, but bear in mind that even as of this posting, this particular polybag is nowhere to be found in the third-party seller platform.
If you’re into LEGO video games, then pre-ordering the LEGO Movie 2 video game is a no-brainer. As of now, EB Games in Australia and Amazon UK are offering this upcoming video game title for pre-order on their respective website, with an option of selecting the title’s Limited Edition Minifigure Edition. Though Amazon US also has a similar pre-order listing, it should be noted that the website has no specific mention of the Star-Stuck Emmet (30620) polybag as a free promotional bundled together with the video game title.
Here’s a quick rundown of the LEGO Movie 2 Video Game, including its free promotional. The LEGO Movie 2 video game is available across major video game platforms including Playstation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

LEGO Minecraft is here to stay this 2019! And other than the introduction of new, larger buildable figures of Steve, Alex, and a Minecraft Skeleton, LEGO now introduces its very first LEGO Minecraft polybag with the Steve and Creeper (30393) polybag set. This particular polybag adds to the roster of other sets due to be released this year – particularly those coming from the LEGO City, LEGO Movie 2, and LEGO Marvel themes – whose building instructions were found online by Brickset.
This is a very welcomed gesture from LEGO since the Minecraft theme has been sorely lacking from polybags since its introduction 6 years ago. The LEGO Minecraft Steve and Creeper (30393) polybag features the typical Steve with a sword accessory, and a Creeper minifig, including a buildable TNT box. This simple build also comes with a play feature that allows builders to ‘launch’ the TNT by pushing a lever connected to a Technic pin. Like any other polybag set, this is also a great opportunity to have these two LEGO Minecraft minifigures added to your collection without breaking the bank. For your reference, here are the building instructions for this polybag.
Details are scant though as of this posting, regarding the availability of the LEGO Minecraft Steve and Creeper (30393) polybag, and my guess is that it may be a part of an upcoming promotional at LEGO stores and LEGO Shop@HOme. I’ll keep you posted as more info comes in. Be sure to check out as well the rest of this year’s LEGO Minecraft sets. Just click on the links below for more info at shop.LEGO.com

It looks like the wave of new 2019 polybags is not yet over. Hot off the heels of the new LEGO City and LEGO Movie 2 polybags, comes another mini build straight from the Spiderverse. The building instructions for the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Spider-Man’s Mini Spider Crawler (30451) can now be found online via LEGO’s Customer Service webpage. As you may have noticed, it is a smaller replica of the larger Spider-Man’s Spider Crawler (76114) set. This Mini Spider Crawler (30451) polybag also comes as our first polybag in 2019 under the new Spider-Man subtheme.
Coming in at more than 70 pieces, this new for 2019 LEGO Marvel Superheroes polybag features the newly designed Spider-Man minifigure (a cost-effective way to catch Spidey’s new minifig, by the way), with a much smaller arachnid build. 3 or 4 smaller builds of this Mini Spider Crawler (30451) goes perfectly well with its larger counterpart if you wish to create a brood of fearsome spider mech. There seem to be no special parts included in this polybag, save for Spidey’s minifig. So if in case you want to give it a try and build your own army of Mini Spider Crawlers, then check out its building instructions below. Thanks once again to Brickset for the heads up.
The LEGO Customer Service portal has uploaded another set of building instructions that you might find interesting. The building instructions to create the new LEGO City Popcorn Cart (30364) polybag can now be found online. This newest small and fun build is the third polybag set included in the new for 2019 line-up of LEGO city polybags following the Fire ATV (30361) and Sky Police Jetpack (30362)
The LEGO City Popcorn Cart (30364) comes in approximately 40 pieces and includes a popcorn vending guy minifigure, a popcorn cart that comes with a ‘popping’ popcorn play feature and a nicely printed 1×1 brick element for the popcorn box. I’m not really sure, but I think the 1×1 printed brick is new for this one, and the excellent use of the rare cartwheels similar to that to the Hot Dog Stand (30356) is a welcome bonus for collectors and builders. The design of Popcorn Cart also reminds me of some of the arcade builds offered at our official storefront, the Brick Show Shop, with some modifications of course. Check out the building instructions below for the rest of the parts.
Needless to say, this new LEGO City Popcorn Cart (30364) will be a cool addition to your LEGO City carnival or park MOC. Keep an eye for this polybag at your local Walmart or LEGO brand stores, and let us know if you spot on the wild. Thanks again to Brickset for the heads up.
