Check Out the LEGO Freebies in the October 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

After being treated with a couple of magical freebies from the wizarding world of LEGO Harry Potter this month, the LEGO Store now gears up for another wave of promotional items slated to be released next month. Read on to see what the October 2020 LEGO Store Calendar has to offer for your next LEGO purchase.

Other than featuring the LEGO Star Wars Mos Cantina (75290) as its flagship, centerpiece set for next month, the October 2020 LEGO Store Calendar is somewhat pretty random in its offerings, with not just two but three freebies to offer that covers various LEGO themes. You may also download a PDF version of next month’s LEGO Store Calendar right here. Let’s take a closer look at what the calendar has to offer both for in-store and online LEGO purchases.

Free Exclusive LEGO Mindstorms Mini Robots (40413) Polybag

From October 15 to 25, 2020, or while supplies last.

October 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

The latest LEGO Mindstorms set just had a reboot with the announcement of the Robot Inventor (51515) set. And to celebrate the arrival of this new robotics game-changer, LEGO has also revealed a polybag version of the theme with the LEGO Mindstorms Mini Robots (40413). No sensors, motors, and intelligent hub of course, but this polybag promo is packed with enough LEGO pieces to build 5 separate models at the same time. I particularly like that build which recreates a mini version of the original Robot Inventor, plus the four-legged robodog Spot inspired by Boston Dynamics.

This polybag freebie will be available from October 15 to 25 and will be added to your shopping cart automatically for a minimum single-receipt purchase of any LEGO products worth $100 and more.

Free LEGO Build Your Own Vehicles (30549) Polybag

From October 15 to 25, 2020, or while supplies last.

October 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

It looks like if you time your next purchase anytime during the third week of October, you’ll not just get one but two polybag freebies. For a minimum single-receipt purchase worth $40 and above,  you’ll get a free LEGO Build Your Own Vehicles (30549) polybag. It’s a neat incentive to have if you wish to make the best out of your intended LEGO purchase on these dates. Take note however that this is an In-Store only freebie which means this will not be available over at LEGO Shop@Home.

Free LEGO Hidden Side El Fuego’s Stunt Cannon (30464) Polybag

From October 26 to November 1, 2020, or while supplies last.   

October 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

And what will Halloween be without some spooky fun from LEGO? Just in time for some trick or treats, LEGO will also be giving away a LEGO Hidden Side El Fuego’s Stunt Cannon (30464) polybag for every qualifying purchase of any LEGO products worth $35. This promo will launch (no pun intended) from October 26 until November 1 or until supplies last.

 

Other than these promotional freebies, LEGO VIP members also have the chance of winning a LEGO Batman Movie The Batmobile (70905) set signed by no other than the comedic host of LEGO Masters US and the voice behind the LEGOfied Caped Crusader, Will Arnett.

October 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

This sweepstake will be up at the LEGO VIP Rewards Center from October 12 to November 1, 2020, with a corresponding 50 VIP points per raffle entry to join.

LEGO Harry Potter Freebies Highlighted in the September 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

The US September 2020 LEGO Store Calendar has been uploaded and with it comes the next series of promotional freebies that you can get to make the most out of your next LEGO purchase. Same as with previous months, it is relatively quiet in LEGO brand stores due to the absence of any in-store building activities that LEGO used to have. But still, there are plenty of reasons to visit your local LEGO store next month (be sure to follow all health and safety protocols of course) as shown in next month’s promotional flyer, and as I’ve reported previously. Take a look at these promos.

Front and center in the September 2020 LEGO Store Calendar are the upcoming LEGO City Main Square (60271), arriving in stores on September 1. I have no qualms over LEGO’s choice of building set to be featured in its Store Calendar, though I strongly feel that next month is mostly about LEGO Harry Potter, as evident through its various promotional items below. It will also be nice if the Diagon Alley (75978) had an early reveal as well in next month’s Store Calendar to make it even more exciting.

Free Exclusive BrickHeadz Hagrid and Buckbeak (40412)

Promo period: September 1 to 15, 2020 

From September 1 to 15, LEGO is throwing in this $20 worth of BrickHeadz set together with your single-receipt purchase of LEGO Harry Potter sets worth $100 and more. First introduced earlier this month, the LEGO Harry Potter BrickHeadz Hagrid and Buckbeak (40412) is a great incentive to get the latest LEGO Harry Potter sets including the upcoming LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley (75978).

Free Harry Potter and Hedwig Owl Delivery (30420)

Promo period: September 1 to 15, 2020 

Here’s another freebie for LEGO Harry Potter fans that will also run during the first half of September. Similarly from September 1 to 15, each single-receipt purchase of LEGO Harry Potter sets worth $40 and more will entitle you to a free LEGO Harry Potter and Hedwig Owl Delivery (30420) polybag.

Free Monkie Kid’s Delivery Bike (30341)

Promo period: September 7 to 13, 2020 

September 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

If you time your purchases just right during the first two weeks of September, it seems that you’ll not just get two LEGO Harry Potter freebies, but also another polybag this time coming from the LEGO Monkie Kid theme. The LEGO Monkie Kid’s Delivery Bike (30341) will be added to your cart automatically (or while supplies last) from September 7 to 13 for every single-receipt purchase of any LEGO sets or products worth $35 and above. So if you’re planning to make your next LEGO purchases between these dates and are specifically eyeing for the latest LEGO HP sets, making your purchase during the second week of the month will give you the opportunity of bagging three freebies in one go.

Free LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Cat (30574)

Promo period: September 16 to 30, 2020

September 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

From the looks of it, LEGO still has something to offer even during the last half of the month. For any LEGO purchases worth $35 and more from September 16 to 30, you’ll get a free LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Cat (30574) polybag added to your cart. Coming in at 55 pieces, it’s a great way to complement any LEGO Creator sets that you will purchase while keeping the younger LEGO fanatics occupied.

Are We To Expect A Couple of LEGO Harry Potter GWP Sets In September?

The leaky faucet is back and this time, the news is all about the next wave of LEGO GWP or gift-with-purchase sets that will arrive next month. It is no secret that LEGO will be putting the spotlight on its line of LEGO Harry Potter sets next month, with so much in store under this theme. Given that we will also be having the LEGO Harry Potter CMF Series 2 (71028) and a new, yet to be officially revealed LEGO Diagon Alley (75978)it is but expected that LEGO will also be offering a couple of LEGO Harry Potter GWP sets to sweeten the deal.

And though we’re just counting the days before the official release of the September 2020 LEGO Store Calendar, we can now confirm what next month’s promotional deals will be. As it turns out, we can expect two LEGO Harry Potter GWP sets to be offered at this time. And our sources indicate that it will be the following:

  • LEGO Harry Potter and Hedwig: Owl Delivery (30420) polybag
  • LEGO BrickHeadz Hagrid and Buckbeak (40412)
LEGO Harry Potter and Hedwig: Owl Delivery (30420)

LEGO Harry Potter GWP

    • Qualifying purchases of LEGO Harry Potter sets worth $40 or more.
    • Promo period will be from September 1 to 15 or while supplies last.
    • Will be offered both in-store and online via LEGO Shop@Home.
LEGO BrickHeadz Hagrid and Buckbeak (40412)

    • Qualifying purchases of LEGO Harry Potter sets worth $100 or more.

LEGO Store July 2020 Store Calendar Is All About Summer Fun

Summer has kicked in, and LEGO inspires us to think-out-of-the-box and to reinvent what it means to have fun during this season. As the threat of COVID-19 is still very real, we can still make summer fun and exciting with the wave of new LEGO sets now available at the LEGO Store, plus a couple of nice freebies to go along with it. These and much more are highlighted in the online version of the LEGO Store July 2020 Store Calendar. Let’s take a quick look at what it has to offer.

Free LEGO Creator Creative Fun 12-in-1 (40411) Set

Offer valid from July 1-26, 2020 

LEGO Store July 2020

 

 

Free LEGO Back to School Pack (5005969)

Offer valid from July 27 to 29, 2020

LEGO Store July 2020

This next promotional item has a quite short promo period, scheduled to be available only for three days. However, it will appeal mostly to younger LEGO fans who take pride in showing their love for the brick. For every LEGO purchase worth $50 or more from July 27 to 29 will qualify you for a free LEGO Back to School Pack (5005969). This stationery freebie comes with a neat transparent pencil case, CMF character stickers, ruler, pencil, a notebook, and a nice brick-shaped eraser.

 

Free LEGO Christmas Tree (40338)

Offer valid from July 24-26, 2020

It’s an early holiday treat from LEGO as they bring back one of 2019’s gift-with-purchase set. The LEGO Christmas Tree (40338) will be added to your cart for free from July 24-26 when your LEGO purchase reaches $100 and above. This brick-built tree comes in at an impressive 392 pieces and is a perfect ornament for that Holiday Winter Village that you’re planning to display.

 

LEGO VIPs Monthly Sweepstakes – Limited Edition Bizarro Minifigure

Enter online at the VIP Reward Center from July 13-August 2, 2020

LEGO Store July 2020

It looks like LEGO intends this to be a regular thing. Following the return of the LEGO Deadpool Duck Minifigure (SDCC 2017 promotional exclusive) as a VIP Sweepstakes prize earlier this month, another SDCC exclusive added to the roster of VIP rewards. The limited-edition LEGO DC Comics Superheroes Bizarro Minifigure is the next sweepstakes prize up for grabs. This rare minifigure made its debut at SDCC 2012 as a ComicCon promotional with only 1,000 or so minifigs made for the said event. You may enter online from July 13 to August 2, with 50 VIP points per sweepstakes entry.

And similar to previous months, the LEGO Store July 2020 Store Calendar shows no indication of any LEGO in-store activities slated for next month as a precaution against the spread of COVID-19. However, LEGO promises to gradually re-open all of its stores as long as the proper health protocols are in place. So for the time being, be sure to check out the many LEGO sets scheduled to be released in July and August such as the LEGO Disney Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Buildable Characters (43179) and a plethora of LEGO Super Mario expansion sets to name a few.  Just click on these affiliate links to know more.

LEGO Deadpool Duck Is Back as an Exclusive LEGO VIP Reward

The LEGO VIP Rewards seems to be in the habit of bringing back old Comic-Con exclusives. After offering the LEGO SDCC 2012 Shazam minifigure as a sweepstakes reward for LEGO VIP members back in January, we now have another offering from the LEGO VIP Rewards Center that LEGO fans will be happy to have. The super rare LEGO SDCC 2017 Deadpool Duck minifigure is back and here’s our chance to get it.

Similar to the equally rare Shazam minifig, Deadpool Duck is back as part of the LEGO VIP Rewards monthly sweepstakes. Worth 50 VIP points, you can have up to 15 raffle entries if you wish to have bigger odds of winning this exclusive.

As you may know already, Deadpool Duck is the unholy combination of the two of the most revered, action-packed characters from Marvel Comics: Howard the Duck and of course, the Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool. The head of the minifigure comes from the same mold as that of Donald Duck from the LEGO Disney CMF collection, while the torso features a unique print of Deadpool’s vest which only comes in three LEGO variants, including the one from 2018’s LEGO SDCC 2018 Sheriff Deadpool, and the only Deadpool minifig that comes in a set which is from the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Wolverine’s Chopper Showdown (6866)

To make this reward extra special, LEGO is adding an acrylic case, including the original SDCC 2017 collectible packaging, together with the minifig.

LEGO Deadpool Duck

The LEGO Deadpool Duck VIP Rewards sweepstakes will run until June 21. Just be sure to check the list of countries where this promo is available.

Latest LEGO Vehicles Featured in the LEGO Store June 2020 Store Calendar

The LEGO Store June 2020 Store Calendar is now out, underscoring its latest line of brick-built vehicles including an attractive gift-with-purchase (GWP) set. Though it will take a lot of getting used to with regards to the many in-store activities that are effectively canceled in LEGO brand stores no thanks to our current pandemic, the LEGO Group has slowly adapted to the new normal by gradually opening its stores in the US. With that in mind, let’s take a quick look at what next month’s LEGO Store promotional calendar has to offer.

First off, we have some of LEGO’s most recent brick-built vehicle collection, including two of its larger sets that debuted this year: the LEGO Creator Expert Fiat 500 (10271) and the handsomely crafted LEGO Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger (42111) that took inspiration from the Fast & Furious films. Released earlier this year, we also have one of the first 8-stud wide LEGO Speed Champions sets in the form of the Ferrari F8 Tributo (76895) set. These sets and much more are all available at LEGO Shop@Home if you want to take a look.

LEGO Creator Expert Fiat 500 (10271)
LEGO Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger (42111)
LEGO Speed Champions Ferrari F8 Tributo (76895)

Similar to this month’s freebie in the form of the LEGO City Beach Buggy (30369), we now have another GWP ride that fans will appreciate. The LEGO Creator Hot Rod (40409) will be yours for free for a minimum single-receipt purchase of LEGO products worth $85 and above. The qualifying purchase needed to bag this freebie is a bit higher as compared to other promotional items this year, but being a scaled model of its predecessor, the LEGO Model Team Blue Fury (5541) from the mid-90s (re-issued in 2004 as set 10151), plus coming in with two minifigures, then I guess I will not mind the qualifying purchase. The LEGO Creator Hot Rod (40409) is valued at $13, so having it as a freebie is a welcomed deal in itself. Be sure to check with your local LEGO store or over at LEGO Shop@Home starting June 1 for this freebie’s availability since this can quickly fly off the shelves. If you wish to see more of this collectible set, then I suggest that you check out The Brothers Brick’s extensive review.

LEGO Store June 2020

As I mentioned earlier, in-store activities are still restricted in all LEGO Stores, so the usual Build-and-Take and designer signing events are effectively canceled. Most LEGO stores are only allowing curbside pickups as of to date as part of LEGO’s compliance towards physical distancing guidelines. I guess its part of the so-called new normal so, we have to eventually adapt to these new systems that are slowly taking shape.

Nevertheless, the month of June has a lot to offer other than the abovementioned sets mentioned in the LEGO Store June 2020 calendar. We have a nice collection of LEGO Friends summer 2020 sets, new LEGO Marvel sets, a new Brick Sketches theme, and even the first-ever LEGO Technic Lamborghini set all slated to arrive next month. These and much more are enough good reasons to keep on building.

Stay home and stay safe everyone!

LEGO Star Wars Death Star II Battle (40407) Building Instructions Now Available

May the 4th is now officially over, and in case you missed out on this year’s exclusive LEGO Star Wars gift-with-purchase set, you might be glad to know that LEGO servers have uploaded the building instructions for the LEGO Star Wars Death Star II Battle (40407).

LEGO Star Wars Death Star II Battle

From May 1 to 4, this promotional set was automatically given to LEGO customers whose LEGO Star Wars purchase reached $75 and above. Coming in at 235 pieces, the LEGO Star Wars Death Star II Battle (40407) follows a microscale diorama format depicting that epic trench run scene between a TIE Interceptor and Rebel A-Wing Ship from Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.

Thanks to LEGO Customer Service, we can now try to recreate this limited-edition set using its uploaded building instructions. Check out the following parts list and see if you have the parts needed to recreate this build.

Save for the exclusive 2×4 commemorative printed plate, I think you’ll need to improvise for those new 2×4 right and left wedge plates (parts 6295293 and 6295295 respectively) to somehow create a semblance of the microscaled TIE Interceptor in case you don’t have these. If you noticed, these recently released special plates are only found on two, new LEGO Star Wars sets: the Sith TIE Fighter (75272) and TIE Fighter Helmet (75274). In case you don’t have these parts, I’m sure we can find a suitable replacement for these parts to create that sleek, pointed form of the TIE Interceptor.

If you wish to build your own version of the LEGO Star Wars Death Star II Battle, you can get its building instructions for free from the LEGO Customer Service portal. On a similar note, you might be interested to know that the building instructions for last year’s similar May the 4th freebie, the LEGO Star Wars Battle of Endor 20th Anniversary Edition (40362) set, is also available for download.

And while you’re at it, be sure to check out the latest LEGO Star Wars sets now available at LEGO Shop@Home. Happy building!

Similar to its previous LEGO Star Wars Maz Kanata minifigure raffle, this rare Boba Fett minifig is enclosed in a protective frame, including a copy of its polybag and an uncut and unnumbered sticker sheet featuring some of LEGO Star Wars’ famous minifigure characters.

LEGO Star Wars Death Star II Battle (40407) GWP Set Officially Revealed

LEGO servers have been updated to include official images of this year’s LEGO May the 4th promotional, gift-with-purchase (GWP) set. Earlier this week, it was revealed that LEGO will be throwing in a limited edition freebie in the form of the LEGO Star Wars Death Star II Battle (40407) as this year’s exclusive GWP set for LSW fans who will make their next LEGO Star Wars purchase on this grand sale day.

LEGO Star Wars Death Star Battle II (40407)

Valued at $14.99, the LEGO Star Wars Death Star II Battle (40407) comes in a similar diorama format like that from last year’s LEGO Star Wars Battle of Endor 20th Anniversary Edition (40362) set. Coming in at 235 pieces, this display piece takes its cue from Episode VI Return of the Jedi during the final encounter against the Imperial forces on board the incomplete Death Star II. The micro-build/diorama features a sort of a trench run between a Rebel A-Wing ship and a dreaded TIE Interceptor. The set will also come with its own exclusive 2×4 printed tile.

There is no particular mention of a price point required to obtain this set, but we can surmise that it will be probably the same as that of last year’s $75 qualifying purchase. Other than this freebie, LEGO is also bringing back its Double VIP points during this period, plus super sweet discounts on LEGO Star Wars sets and items. And if you’re eyeing for this year’s UCS set, then May the 4th is the best time to get the LEGO Star Wars UCS A-Wing Starfighter (75275) which will retail for $199.99.

So what do you think about this year’s LEGO Star Wars May the 4th gift-with-purchase set? Do you think it’s a great choice to celebrate the occasion? Do you have other famous and iconic Star Wars scenes that you want to be given the official LEGO treatment? Share us what you think in the comments below, and remember to always be safe.

LEGO Star Wars Mini Droid Commander (75522) Now Back As An Exclusive VIP Reward

If you recall from September last year, LEGO released the LEGO Star Wars Mini Droid Commander (75522) as an exclusive gift-with-purchase (GWP) set for those who will be getting its much larger (and motorized) cousin, the LEGO Star Wars Boost Droid Commander (75253). Though LEGO was kind enough to publish the building instructions for this promotional item, this GWP had a relatively short life span, offered only between September 9-15, 2019.

In case you missed out on this promotional, you’ll be glad to know that it is made available again as a redeemable reward at the LEGO VIP Rewards Center.

Mini Droid Commander (75522)

Unlike the first time it was offered, you can now get this directly without making any particular purchases. Just be sure that you have enough VIP points (1,350 points) to redeem this exclusive. There is no particular promo period mentioned at the Rewards Center, but just be sure to get it quickly since these kinds of offers tend to run out pretty quickly.

LEGO Star Wars Mini Droid Commander

The LEGO Star Wars Mini Droid Commander comes in at 62 pieces and features a micr0scaled version of a Gonk and Mouse Droid, plus an R2-D2 minifigure. It is further accentuated by a commemorative LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary 2×4 plate found only in two other promotional sets: the LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth (40333) and Battle of Endor (40362) 20th Anniversary sets. On the other hand, the LEGO Star Wars Boost Droid Commander (75253) is available at LEGO Shop@Home. It comes in at 1,177 pieces and retails for $199.99.
