LEGO Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Baby Velociraptor Playpen (30382) Listed On Walmart

It looks like we now know where to spot our Baby Velociraptor microfig. After being revealed as the first polybag tie-in set for the LEGO Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom theme, Walmart has now listed the Baby Velociraptor Playpen (30382) polybag on its web portal. As it seems, it doesn’t come as a freebie of sorts, or a gift with purchase set since it is retailing for $3.97 as Walmart’s website suggests. Its currently listed as out of stock, and I’m not really sure if this is a retailer exclusive. We’ll just have to wait and see if this dino polybag will eventually find its way at shop.LEGO.com.

As I mentioned before, the obvious selling point of this polybag is the tiny and adorable Baby Velociraptor microfig which is first introduced in the Fallen Kingdom subtheme. This is a great way to create a sort of den for these little critters if you’re looking forward to add its siblings coming from other sets such as the Dilophosaurus Outpost Attack (75931), Carnotaurus Gyrosphere Escape (75929), and T. Rex Transport (75933). Here’s how Target describes this nice 48-piece polybag.

Be Sure To Bring Home This Buildable LEGO Porg This Month of May

The LEGO Store May Calendar is now out and as expected, the Force is strong with this month’s promos and highlights. LEGO is all ready to go come May the 4th, especially with its in-store activities and freebies. So before we are treated with a UCS-like Porg (75230) sometime in October, LEGO is giving us a taste of things to come with an exclusive Make and Take Build event in all LEGO brand stores from May 4 to 6. Open to all children ages 6-14, participants will be treated to a LEGO buildable Porg which is actually our very first official LEGO Porg set.

Here’s the full announcement as mentioned at the back of the LEGO Store May Calendar:

May the 4th Be With You! (May 4-6)

All weekend, come in dressed as your favorite character! You can also participate in an exclusive Porg Make and Take Build that you get to take home – for free! Registration is on a first come, first serve basis and quantities are limited. Stop by or call your local LEGO Store to sign up starting April 1. This activity is intended for children ages 6-14 only. See a Brick Specialist for details.

As you may notice, registration is already on-going which began early this month. I’m quite positive that this is one Make and Take build that will prove to be quite popular among the LEGO faithful, and it is understandable if registration will be full even a month before the event. We just hope that like similar previous promos, LEGO will make the instructions available online since the pieces used for this kind of sets are usually easy to find and may in fact already be part of your existing LEGO collection.

So what do you think of this exclusive Porg Make and Take build? Will you sign-up your kid or sibling for this one? Let me know in the comments below.

New LEGO Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Baby Velociraptor Playpen (30382) Polybag Appears

Here’s another unlikely find. It looks like LEGO is still not done with its tiny, little surprises, which this time, comes in a small package. Just in time before the LEGO Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom sets are released this month, Promobricks revealed that the theme will be having another polybag set under its belt. Following its very first polybag promo back in 2015 with the Gallimimus Trap (30320), it looks the Fallen Kingdom subtheme will be receiving the same treatment.

Thanks to one of Promobricks’ readers, we now have our first image of the LEGO Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Baby Velociraptor Playpen (30382) set which might be our second dino-themed JW polybag promo anytime soon. Check out its image below.

As you can see, the polybag consists of a Baby Velociraptor minifig (or microfig depending on how you look at it) in what looks like a playpen contraption standing on a 12X3 base, including a drumstick and some bone elements. The obvious selling point for this set is the Baby Velociraptor itself, considering that the same microfig can only be found in two recently revealed, upcoming JWFK sets: the Dilophosaurus Outpost Attack (75931) and T. Rex Transport (75933).

Details of when, where, and how to get this polybag is still scant but our best guess is that it will be available sometime  in May just in time with the film’s theatrical release.

 

This Year’s LEGO May the 4th Offerings Revealed

Click here to Shop May the 4 Deals on LEGO.com >>

After the reveal of the LEGO Star Wars Mini BB-8 (40288) as this year’s exclusive LEGO May the 4th freebie, we now have more info on what to expect on this grand day for LEGO Star Wars fans. Based once again on the LEGO Spring Catalog which is now made available in North America (included with purchases via shop.LEGO.com), we can now have a good look at what LEGO has prepared to sweeten its LEGO Star Wars deals on May 4.

As mentioned, we have the exclusive Mini BB-8 (40288) polybag which is only available for a day on May 4. This mini brick-built figure of the cutest droid around comes free with any purchase of LEGO Star Wars sets worth $75 and above.

Double VIP points are back on most LEGO Star Wars sets purchased from May 4 to 6, such as the upcoming LEGO Star Wars Kessel Run Millennium Falcon (75212). Do take note that Ultimate Collector Series sets such as the humungous UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) and the recently revealed UCS Y-Wing Starfighter (75181) are not qualified for Double VIP points once the latter is made available on May 4.

Furthermore, LEGO will also offer lovely discounts of up to 20% off from May 4 to 6 on selected LEGO Star Wars sets such as Kylo Ren’s TIE Fighter (75179). Will keep you posted on these deals as soon as LEGO updates their online listing.

Lastly, though this is not exactly a May the 4th deal, please take note that the LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Pod (5005376) promo will run starting April 13 to May 3, or until supplies last. This much awaited LEGO pod comes free with any LEGO Star Wars purchases worth $60 and above made on during the said dates.

Thanks again to Promobricks for the heads up.

CONFIRMED: LEGO Star Wars Mini BB-8 (40288) Is This Year’s Exclusive LEGO May The 4th Promotional

Last week, we reported that the upcoming LEGO Star Wars May the 4th promotional will be very much similar to last year’s buildable R2-D2 (30611) polybag, and it looks like that our next similar promotional will be getting its inspiration from another one of Star Wars most famous droids. The confirmation comes from the LEGO Store Spring Catalog which is reported to be shipped together with sets that were ordered via LEGO Shop@Home, according to Promobricks. Based on one of its pages, this year’s May the 4th Promotional will be the LEGO Star Wars Mini BB-8 (40288) polybag as you can see below.

Similar to last year, this Mini-BB8 polybag will only be available on May 4, during which, it comes free for every $75 single receipt purchase of any LEGO Star Wars sets. This brick built figure is a whole lot different from TRU’s microbuild polybag Bricktober promo – first, it’s significantly large as compared from the previous TRU microbuild promo, giving the Mini BB-8 (40288) polybag an expected larger piece count. And secondly, like last year’s builable R2-D2 polybag, it comes with a uniquely printed dome piece, and 6×6 satellite dishes surrounding its body to give this mini BB-8 a spherical look.

Considering that this is only made available for a day, we can expect that this promotional will become one of the hottest, sought after items come May 4. So if you’re planning to purchase online, be sure to be quick on those mouse clicks once the clock strikes 12 midnight of May 4. If you prefer to drop by at your local LEGO store, then don’t forget to ask for this little buildable guy.

First Look At The LEGO Star Wars BB-8 (40288) Polybag

News of it first came out Sunday this week, so considering the fact that there were so many instances of “fake news” (of the intentionally hilarious April Fools’ type) that were flying about on the first of the month, we needed to take this one with a grain of salt.

Thankfully, it would seem that this piece of new LEGO Star Wars merchandise is on the level. While only one image of the final product is available now, it’s enough to confirm the existence of a new BB-8 polybag, numbered 40288. Chances are high that this is a promotional item.

We’ve gotten to see previous versions of a LEGO BB-8 before, from the 1106-piece LEGO Star Wars BB-8 (75187) to the micro-build that was done for Make and Take on OctoberNovember of last year at Toys ‘R’ Us stores (big sigh, folks). This one’s entirely new, and the design’s certainly a beauty.

This is an official polybag version of BB-8 so the details as seen in the photo are accurate to the breakout droid star from the Star Wars sequel trilogy. Some its components are printed in signature BB-8 decals, though of course they can be incorporated into bigger MOCs by builders.

No further details are available just yet on the LEGO Star Wars BB-8 polybag (40288), or for the promo that it’s involved in. So far, the signs in the stars leads to the possibility that this may be related to a May the 4th promotions, but until we have solid proof, then we will continue to keep an eye for future developments. The LEGO Store Calendar for the month of May is expected to out anytime soon, and hopefully by then we will get a confirmation.

 

I Hope This Is Not An April Fool’s Day Joke: LEGO Star Wars BB-8 (40288) Polybag Promotional Arriving In May

We know that there is a new LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Pod polybag coming out this April, and it looks like there is another similar polybag all set to go in May. Now to be honest, I’m a little hesitant about posting this piece of news, especially that playful fiction has a tendency to become fact in this day of the year. Nevertheless, there seems to be some grain of truth in what the good guys from Promo Bricks have to say. According to one of their most recent reports – actually it was posted yesterday which gives credence to the idea that this is not probably a part of an elaborate pre-April Fools Day conspiracy – LEGO Star Wars fans can expect BB-8 to make a comeback in a TRU-style microbuild polybag.

If you recall from last October, Toys R Us back then offered a build and take home LEGO BB-8 microbuild to conclude their annual Bricktober celebrations last year (I will certainly miss their Bricktober minifigures for that matter). As I mentioned in that post, I sincerely feel that LEGO and TRU could have improved on this particular LEGO BB-8 microbuild, which quite frankly, looks like an underarm roll-on. Nevertheless, the build itself is pretty solid in terms of design but the lack of aesthetics (i.e. some unique printed parts) is a bit of a let-down and is an injustice against one of the most adorable SW droids around.

Nevertheless, this news from Promo Bricks, if proven to be true is expected to be of similar build but will have a marked difference. The LEGO Star Wars BB-8 (40288) polybag will have printed parts particularly for the side of its head. Now it is not really uncommon to see BB-8 in brick-build form since we already have the UCS-like LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi BB-8 (75187) set. The challenge therefore is to recreate this set in such a small scale without compromising BB-8’s outstanding features, and the best way to do that is to offer some printed parts.

Admittedly, Promo Bricks does not have the polybag image to share as of the moment, but they promise to give us an update as soon as it is available. Will keep our radars open for this one and will keep you posted as well.

Here’s A Look At The LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Pod (5005376) Polybag Promotional

DISCLAIMER: This is not in any way related to April Fool’s Day just in case you got overly concerned with my spoiler laden LEGO Marvel Superheroes The Death of Loki set. 😉

Now that April is officially in, LEGO is now geared up for another round of promotional freebies to sweeten your LEGO shopping. Its launching was not that all smooth given the fact that The LEGO Group temporarily suspended the release of this set last December. But thanks to the LEGO Store April Calendar, we’re now sure to expect the much-awaited LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Pod (5005376) polybag this month. This next LEGO Star Wars promotional gift with purchase set is slated to be given away from April 13 to May 3, with a corresponding LEGO Star Wars purchase of $60 and above.

With that out of the way, eBay reseller princess_789 gives us a first look on how this polybag promo will look like come April 13 in the US. Coming in at 36 pieces, the set comes, of course, with a LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader minifigure, together with gateway like arch with several nice printed pieces.

Promobricks also managed to share some images that show how the pod looks like from the outside. As mentioned in earlier articles, the pod seems to have a metallic outside casing probably because of its glossy effect and its lenticular printing.

The fact that this promotional is already in the secondary market is a likely indication that it is now available in US LEGO brand stores and is just awaiting the go signal for distribution. The LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Pod (5005376) polybag is also a great way to bag the minifig version of the iconic Sith Dark Lord. I really couldn’t figure that much from the polybag image, but it seems to me that this minifigure is a likely combination of two previous Darth Vader releases. For the helmet, the new minifig seems to borrow from 2016’s Vader’s TIE Advanced vs A-Wing Starfighter (75150), while the torso and leg prints seems to suggest a version of Vader from 2014’s Imperial Star Destroyer (75055). Whatever the case is, I’m quite positive that this will be one of the most sought after LEGO pods of all time. What do you think?

LEGO Star Wars Solo Imperial TIE Fighter (30381) Polybag Arriving Soon

It looks like we’re getting another polybag anytime soon. Though I have to admit that I may not be that excited for this one as compared to the prospect of landing on a LEGO Marvel Guardians’ Ship (30525) polybag, I’m still looking forward on grabbing this one. Rebel Scum has shared the news that a new LEGO Star Wars Solo Imperial TIE Fighter (30381) polybag may hit stores next month, coinciding with the release of its larger LEGO Star Wars Solo cousins.

It has been customary for LEGO to also offer miniature replica of its larger sets each time a particular theme is released – we have the likes of the LEGO Ninjago Movie’s Ice Tank (30427), the LEGO Marvel Royal Talon Fighter (30450), and the most recent LEGO Marvel Infinity War The Guardians’ Ship (30525) just to name a few. The LEGO Star Wars Solo Imperial TIE Fighter (30381) comes in at 42 pieces and will retail approximately for $3.99 USD.

We haven’t received any updates yet on when and where this latest polybag might be found, but some have been suggesting an April 20 (tentatively) release date, alongside with the official release of the LEGO Star Han Solo sets.

LEGO Marvel Guardians’ Ship Polybag (30525) Spotted in Walmart

There’s not much we know yet about the primarily orange spaceship that the Guardians of the Galaxy will be using in Avengers: Infinity War in the MCU. It’s apparently similar to their original vessel, the Milano, which was wrecked in GOTG Vol. 2 movie, but never actually referred by name.

Anyway, you may recall the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Guardians Ship (30525) polybag as being either part of a Marvel free-with-purchase promo on Shop@Home, as well as selling in Target (both early this March). The polybag has branched out in availability and can be found in Walmart stores as well.

The LMSH Guardians Ship (30525) might be easily found in the LEGO shelves of most Walmart branches’ toy section, and is reported to be priced at about $3.97 each. As stated before, the model therein is a micro version of the one found in the Thanos Ultimate Battle set (76107).

Playing around with the Guardians Ship in LEGO ought to be a fun diversion until April 27, when Avengers: Infinity War premieres in cinemas. Maybe then we’ll get to see what the real thing in the film can do (and perhaps answer the question of whether or not this is just a revamped Milano).
