It’s an early Easter this 2018. (And it falls on April Fools, too!) We’ve already gotten a look at the Iconic Easter minifigure giveaway for this year, set 5005249 or the “Easter bunny costume guy”. But for those who missed one from past years, they might want to check Target.
The LEGO Store April Calendar is now available, and it highlights two LEGO Store promotionals that fans will be eager to have. Other than the availability of the LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Pod (5005376) now set in to stone, we now have another April promotional which pays tribute to the 40th anniversary of the LEGO Minifigure. Other than the much awaited LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 18 that commemorates the anniversary of the iconic minifig, next month will also feature the LEGO Minifigure Factory (5005358). This next gift with purchase (GWP) set comes in at 86 pieces and will be available from April 1 to 15 or until supplies last for a minimum single receipt purchase of any LEGO products worth $75 and above.
You might recall the story late from last year, when LEGO was planning to release a special-edition LEGO Star Wars metallized character pod with none other than Darth Vader himself as the content. Pod 5005376 never became available however, owing to LEGO cancelling the product due to unspecified quality issues.
The month of March has started, and what does it mean in LEGO-world? Why, that means their store calendar for April is now available for viewing for their loyal consumers. Now LEGO fans can plan on what April release to purchase, what offer to pick, and what events to attend.
For LEGO builders whose interests lie less with Star Wars and more with Marvel, the recent reveal of the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition (76105) was one of the greatest treats of the year. After all, it’s got the complexity of a Japanese mecha-model kit going for it.
