LEGO Stranger Things Castle Byers Rumored to be the Next LEGO Promotional Set

To celebrate the launch of the LEGO Stranger Things The Upside Down (75810) a few weeks ago, LEGO also threw in a sweet Make and Take Event at it’s Flatiron (NY) and Leicester (London) LEGO Stores. Needless to say, the LEGO Stranger Things Castle Byers was a hit to LEGO and Netflix fans where in-store patrons get to build this iconic fort in the woods and bring them home at the same. Eventually, building instructions were released online showing how to recreate this 48-piece set less the two exclusive stickers of course.  Of course, if we will have our way, it will be nice to have this Make and Take promotional be available across all LEGO brand stores in the country. And thanks to a report by The Brick Fan, it might be the case

It was rumored that after the initial debut of both the Upside Down (75810) and the LEGO Stranger Things Castle Byers, the latter will eventually be introduced as the next Make and Take promotional across LEGO Stores in the US. LEGO Stores are somehow mum about this, but according to The Brick Fan, registration for this event may actually start tomorrow, June 10. That’s good news especially if you’re a devoted LEGO collector. I know this set is relatively easy to make with all its parts readily available in your modest LEGO collection. However, if you’re a LEGO completionist and wishes to have the exclusive Castle Byers stickers that go with it, then be sure to check out with your local LEGO store to confirm this Make and Take promotional.

The LEGO Stranger Things The Upside Down (75810) is currently available at LEGO Shop@Home retailing for $199.99 USD. Coming in at 2,287 pieces with eight (8) instantly recognizable Stranger Things minifigures: Eleven, Mike Wheeler, Lucas Sinclair, Dustin Henderson, Will Byers, Joyce Byers, Chief Jim Hopper, and the Demogorgon.

Free LEGO Avengers: Endgame Art Print for VIP Members

LEGO VIP members are in for a treat starting next Monday, June 10. For every single receipt purchase of LEGO sets worth $35 USD and above, LEGO VIP members are entitled to a free LEGO Avengers: Endgame art print exclusively illustrated by artists Andrea Divito and Laura Villari. If you recall, LEGO VIP members also received a similar art print a few months ago in connection with the release of MCU’s Captain Marvel film and its LEGO tie-in set. Now that the spotlight is currently on Avengers: Endgame, this second VIP promotional offering marks the second among three exclusive art prints lined up by LEGO.

LEGO Avengers: Endgame Art Print

Though I can’t say that this LEGO Avengers: Endgame art print is 100% movie accurate, it is still a nice poster to be displayed in your LEGO playroom. Furthermore, LEGO VIP members can collect all three posters (the obvious guess is that the third LEGO-inspired art print will be dedicated to the last MCU Phase 3 film, Spider-Man: Far From Home) to combine into a single, collectible poster. Just be quick on that purchase trigger though if you’re on shop.LEGO.com since this LEGO VIP promo will only run from June 10 until 16. Read on for the full promo mechanics.

LEGO Ideas Space Rocket Ride (40335) Official Images Released

After making a brief appearance in April at a LEGO Certified Store in Croatia, we now have our first official images of the LEGO Ideas Space Rocket Ride (40335). If you recall, this particular set is inspired by the winning entry created by LEGO fan builder mjsmiley for the LEGO Ideas LEGO Moments In Space Contest. The contest intends to inspire LEGO fan builders to come up with their own version of LEGO’s next promotional set. Take a look at the following images.

LEGO Ideas Space Rocket Ride (40335)

The LEGO Ideas Space Rocket Ride (40335) is intended to be the next gift with purchase (GWP) set, though the promo mechanics on when and how to avail this set has not yet been disclosed by LEGO, though we can assume that this promotional item might be released next month. Perhaps as a GWP set when you purchase the LEGO Creator Expert Apollo 11 Lunar Lander (10266)? We just have to wait and see.

This set comes in at 154 pieces and in spite of its small size, features a couple of play features such as a rotating crank that allows the Space Rocket to move, a coin slot, and child minifigure with a classic LEGO Space logo printed on its torso.

My radar hasn’t picked up yet where this promotional item will be offered, but you can be sure that I’ll be giving you updates once more info comes in. As someone who collects exclusive GWP sets, this one is certainly on my must-have checklist in spite of the slight controversy that surrounded it a year ago. Special thanks to Promobricks for sharing these images.

********** UPDATE **********

LEGO has confirmed that as a Gift with Purchase set, LEGO Ideas Space Rocket Ride (40335) will be available starting June 5. No price points have been set yet for qualifying purchases as of this publication.

 

LEGO Store Calendars Will Only Be In Digital Versions Starting This July

If you’ve noticed, I haven’t covered much LEGO Store-related news lately, particularly with regards to their monthly LEGO Store Calendars – the last one that I covered being the December 2018 Calendar. My primary source of information back then was at cache.LEGO.com which is somehow available to the public a few months ago. Now that LEGO has virtually removed advanced access to their monthly store calendars (save for the current month that is now available for download), the only means that we can know what is happening in LEGO Stores in advance is if you pay a visit at your local LEGO store and requesting for a physical copy. Now that may even change as well.

LEGO VIP members were recently greeted with an email from LEGO Customer Service saying that beginning July, LEGO Store Calendars will now go paperless. That being the case, those who are fond of collecting their physical copies of these monthly calendars may hold on tight to their collection. I know that LEGO means well with this move, considering their advocacy on environmental sustainability. I just wish that they will bring back early access to monthly LEGO Store Calendars as they used to so fans can have a glimpse of the events and happenings that are really important for them.

I’m also a bit apprehensive on the effects of this move on the promotions of LEGO’s in-store activities because there are still some LEGO fans that primarily get their info on the physical LEGO Store Calendars that are handed out to them by store staff and employees. Unless local LEGO Stores actively campaign and promote the paperless format of their in-store calendars, then LEGO fans and visitors may possibly miss out on the really important stuff.

One way to possibly go around this is to set up an information kiosk in every store. Instead of being handed out a physical copy, store visitors can browse a digital version of the store calendar right there and then. It will be nice to see an interactive digital board where all the in-store happenings are scheduled. Perhaps with a possible integration to your calendar app of choice so you can seamlessly add these events in your own personal calendar. Well, these are just my two cents about this but I have to say that it will be rather cool to see a digital calendar such as that.

So what do you think about this decision of going paperless as far as LEGO Store Calendars are concerned? Do you prefer to have it this way, or do you still go for the feel of having an actual, hard copy? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

LEGO City Space Satellite (30365) Polybag Spotted

Hot on the heels of LEGO’s latest tease about the next LEGO Creator Expert outer space set, it looks like the latest rehashed LEGO Space theme will be having a polybag to complement its NASA-inspired sets. Spotted by a LEGO fan in Austria, and shared over Reddit, we now have a look at the LEGO City Space Satellite (30365) polybag, as you can see below.

Found this set in Austria for 2€(supposed to release in August) from lego

As shared by Reddit user generic9yo, this particular polybag takes its cue from the famous NASA space station spacewalkers. The obvious takeaway from this polybag is the astronaut minifigure donned with a golden helmet. It’s a great way to stack up on those astronaut minifigs for that latest space mission MOC that you are working on. As of the moment, this minifigure is only made available in three out of seven 2019 LEGO City Space sets, namely together with Satellite Service Mission (60224), Mars Research Shuttle (60226), and Lunar Space Station (60227). It was in 2015 when we last saw this astronaut minifigure, so its a great move from LEGO to re-introduce this little fella.

Similar to previous polybags, the LEGO City Space  Satellite (30365) polybag will most likely be a LEGO promotional that goes with the release of the LEGO City Space sets once they’re made available this summer at LEGO stores and at shop.LEGO.com. Nevertheless, we’ll keep you posted once we hear some words about their availability which we expect to be sometime next month.  Thanks to the Brick Fan for the tip, and to Brickset for the featured image.

LEGO Teases The New LEGO Creator Expert NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander Set

LEGO is definitely looking forward to revive the LEGO Space theme in one form or the other. After the successful launch of the new LEGO City Space sets, LEGO has now teased via social media another large set that caters to LEGO and NASA enthuasiasts. Now if you’re actively involved among LEGO fan forums and sites, chances are, you have an encountered already what this mystery set is. In fact, LEGO has given out some images of this set to several European retailers for marketing purposes. Though taken down already, eagle-eyed LEGO fans were quick to capture a snapshot of the new LEGO Creator Expert NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander in all its golden glory.

However, LEGO is still holding on to its horses pending a full reveal of this next Creator Expert set. Check out this 5-second video clip that highlights the first giant leap for LEGO minifigs in space.

I love how the small minifig print appears on the surface of the moon, imitating mankind’s first moon landing. The LEGO Creator Expert NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander is expected to be available sometime next month, with an official reveal to happen any time next week. As a Creator Expert set, this new real world set is expected to consist of more than a thousand pieces and will retail for almost a hundred US dollars. The fact that this new LEGO set is set to be released in June celebrating the 50th year anniversary of NASA’s moon landing, makes this set more appealling to fans.

It is also said that this set will be accompanied with a special promotional item in the form of a commemorative patch, similar  to what LEGO did when when it released a limited edition promotional keychain that accompanied the LEGO Creator Expert Ford Mustang (10265).

Be sure to stay tuned and subscribe to our blog site for more news about the official reveal of the LEGO Creator Expert NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander any time soon.

LEGOLAND Windsor Depicts Royal Baby Presentation, with Free Admission to Guests Named “Archie”

LEGOLAND Windsor, the LEGOLAND resort for the UK, has been something of a brick-built crier for important Royalty-centered events. Its Miniland area contains brick-built scale replicas of the British Royal residences, including nearby Windsor Castle. Thus the displays get constantly updated for all important occasions.

We covered when the LEGOLAND Windsor building teams interpreted the 2018 birth of Prince Louis to Prince William and Kate. The same went for the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle that same year. Now, the builders have completed their latest Miniland Windsor Castle update for guest viewing.

Outside the brick castle are Prince Harry and Meghan, Duke and Duchess of Sussex. With them is the latest addition to the British Royal Family: Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor. It’s in his honor that the LEGOLAND Windsor Resort is throwing its most generous guest promotion yet.

f2a4ba58884c11e823f40615eb8e5696.jpg

Is your name “Archie” like Archie Harrison? Then LEGO Windsor will gladly allow you free admission to the resort. Guests named Archie need only present proof of their identity with the name. It also has to be “Archie” and not its variants like the full form “Archibald” for example. This magnanimous promo from LEGOLAND Windsor will last until July 12.

LEGOLAND Windsor lead model-maker Paula Laughton remarks that their constant special renovations to their Miniland build of Windsor Castle was simply their resort’s signature LEGO way of sharing celebrating news from their “Royal Neighbors.” “Our guests love to spot our new models in Miniland and we can’t wait to see what they think of our latest royal addition,” Laughton said.

LEGO Welcomes May the Fourth Early with “Star Wars” Sets and Promotions

This coming Saturday, the “Star Wars” fandom gets to go crazy in an awesome good way again. After all, it’ll be May the Fourth, and there are plenty of related “Star Wars” events, stuff and goodies waiting. For instance, LEGO has a few promotions in honor of this fandom occasion. Even better, they’re starting early.

Let’s reiterate what’s available for LEGO Star Wars fans and collectors on May the Fourth:

  2. LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth – 20th Anniversary Edition (75244) – size and scale shouldn’t matter as you recreate one of the highlights of “The Empire Strikes Back” with this set; it’s yours with a minimum of $75 in LEGO Star Wars products, while supplies last
  3. LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary Art Print – why gaze on digital-format artwork when you can have a physical media to display in your room? If you spend at least $35 on LEGO Star Wars products starting this weekend, this art print can be yours; if you have the Battle of Hoth (75244) you already have this; again, while supplies last
  4. Selected LEGO Star Wars products 2x VIP points – for VIP members, this needs no explanation

May the Fourth be with you on this new moment for celebrating all things “Star Wars.” We need something to keep ourselves busy until “The Rise of Skywalker” premieres December.
