Build the LEGO® Elf Club House and Bring the Magic of Christmas Into Your Home

The latest set in the LEGO® Holiday collection the Elf Clubhouse is a delightful addition to any holiday display, available from LEGO Retail Stores and LEGO.com from the 23rd of September

BILLUND, September 21, 2020: Experience the magic of Christmas this holiday season and discover the quaint cottage that is home to Santa’s Elves, with the latest LEGO holiday set – the LEGO® Elf Clubhouse. Jam-packed with seasonal touches, the LEGO® Elf Club House allows families to escape the chaos of the holiday season, immerse themselves in the fantasy world of the holiday season and create a new festive building tradition.

LEGO Elf Club House

The LEGO Elf Clubhouse is a truly magical set, with festive features which offer a glimpse into the everyday lives of Santa’s little helpers – including a waffle machine to help them refuel after a long day of toy making, a brick-built repositionable chimney, and even a ‘sleigh port’ to park the elf’s sleigh in, ready to load up with presents for adults and children alike.

This brand-new holiday set is the perfect festive family tradition and a way for families (naughty or nice) to enjoy the magic of the Holiday season and build together to bring their ultimate Christmas fantasy to life. Deck the halls with the LEGO® Elf Clubhouse Christmas Tree, which is brimming with colorful baubles, sneak under the Christmas tree a selection of toys and small gifts the elves have prepared for each other and watch Santa’s sleigh take off into the night sky with the telescope. You can even use the computer to track who has been naughty and who’s nice!

Once you’ve finished your DIY project, The LEGO® Elf Clubhouse, which measures at 8.5” (22cm) high and 5” (13cm) deep, makes a stunning display piece – with a LEGO light brick included in the set to help illuminate the festive scene. Add it to other sets in the LEGO Holiday collection, including the LEGO Creator Expert Gingerbread House and the LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village Fire Station to create a decorative festive display.

The Elf Club House is the latest creation from LEGO fan turned official LEGO designer, Chris McVeigh, whose personal passion project ‘Brick Sketches’ is now an official LEGO theme. Talking about the LEGO Elf Club House, Chris commented:

“It’s amazing to be able to turn my hand to such an iconic set of LEGO models – Holiday season has always been a special time for me and my family, so getting into the festive spirit always come easily when I’m designing (and if I ever struggle, putting on Walking In A Winter Wonderland always helps put me in the right mindset!). For the LEGO® Elf Clubhouse, I wanted to explore the world of Santa’s Elves and work out what they do after they’ve had a long day making toys, giving a glimpse into their secret world, whilst also creating an iconic holiday set that reflects the architecture of alpine chalets. There are so many brilliant pieces within this set, but my favorite piece is the reindeer, which is a brand new addition to this set – I like to call it Brixen! “

LEGO Elf Club House™ will be available directly via LEGO.com and LEGO Stores from 23rd September

The LEGO Elf Club House (10275) Is This Year’s Winter Village Set

Following the unofficial reveal of the LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina (75290) earlier today, the LEGO South Korea Facebook page also shared another upcoming LEGO 18+ set that marks our next set in the Winter Village series. The LEGO Elf Club House (10275) is this year’s seasonal LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village set, now relabeled as a LEGO 18+ offering.

Though the post was removed already by the LEGO South Korea social media team, excited LEGO fans were quick to take notice of it. From what we can learn from the above image is that the LEGO Elf Club House (10275) comes in 1,197 pieces including four elf minifigures and what seems to be a new and exclusive reindeer figure. It also comes with other mini builds that add fun and personality to this magical hangout such as a piano, a ship, a Christmas tree, and that pretty neat sleigh. What stands out the most, in my opinion, is that nice retro looking CRT screen. It’s hard to figure out if it is used as an old PC or a cash register in this context. But whatever is the case, I like the idea of seeing it beside my LEGO CMF Series 19 Computer Programmer (71025).

It is also interesting to note that this is the second time that LEGO will be releasing a Winter Village set that places the limelight on Santa’s hard-working helpers. It was back in 2014 when we last saw them on a similar LEGO set such as this in the form of the LEGO Creator Expert Santa’s Workshop (10245). I like the idea that after a hard day’s work, our Christmas elves get to chill out and rest in their very own clubhouse. I’m not quite sure if the elves in the upcoming LEGO Elf Club House will be a re-issue or will feature a different design as compared from that of six years ago. However, it seems to be clear that they will all be featuring a green upper torso in contrast to the varied colors offered in Santa’s Workshop (10245) set.

Santa’s trusted helpers are seen here hard at work in 2014’s LEGO Creator Expert Santa’s Workshop (10245). And for this year, LEGO is giving them the pampering that they deserve in the upcoming  LEGO Elf Club House (10275). 

We do not have the pricing for this set as of this posting. However, given the Elf Club House’s piece count, we can assume that it will be around the same price range of $99.99. And since this direct-to-consumer set is expected to arrive in LEGO brand stores by September 23, we can expect an official announcement from LEGO anytime soon.

LEGO Friends Advent Calendar 2020 (41420) Set Images Now Up

Following the reveal of the LEGO City Advent Calendar (60268), LEGO online retailer Mein Spielzeug has also shared images of the next seasonal set in this series. Take a look at the LEGO Friends Advent Calendar 2020 (41420) and on what it has to offer.

This seasonal set is expected to arrive in September and will retail for $29.99. It is not yet listed at LEGO Shop@Home as of this posting, but I reckon it can be up at the LEGO shopping portal anytime soon. For now, let’s check out the following set images and it’s corresponding product description. Please take note that this is a rough Google translation so pardon me if there might be some confusing words or phrases.

LEGO Friends Advent Calendar (41420)

236 pieces | $29.99 

LEGO Friends Advent Calendar 2020

Sweeten up the pre-Christmas season with the LEGO® Friends heroines! Open a door every day from December 1st to discover a new toy behind it. The toys fit into 3 sets: Emma’s nursery, Santa’s workshop, and a winter landscape. Tell your own Christmas story: First Emma writes a wish list for Santa, then the elves build the toy and finally Emma plays in the snow with her new gifts.
  • The LEGO® Friends Advent Calendar (41420) shortens the wait for Christmas. Every door hides a new gift that children can assemble. The 24 models enable Christmas role-playing games and also enrich every room as Christmas decorations.
  • The advent calendar for children contains Emma, ​​Mrs. Santa Claus, and 2 elves as LEGO® Friends play figures as well as a toy penguin and many other cool Christmas surprises as building models. Some of the models even have fun moving functions.
  • Children can not only use the models as Christmas decorations but also makeup stories in the individual settings – in the LEGO® Friends heroine Emma’s room, in Santa’s workshop, and in a winter landscape – that inspire creative play adventures.
  • The 236-piece set is a great pre-Christmas gift for children who will be thrilled by an advent calendar that will give them a long time after the first moments of surprise. Children from 6 years old can assemble simple models independently.
  • The box is 25 cm high, 37 cm wide and 6 cm deep and can be set up safely. Children can give their other LEGO® models a Christmas touch because the great toys can be combined with all LEGO sets.

LEGO Friends Advent Calendar 2020 LEGO Friends Advent Calendar 2020 LEGO Friends Advent Calendar 2020

Similar to previous offerings this year’s LEGO Friends Advent Calendar 2020 tells a particular holiday story from the eyes of our Heartlake heroines. From the looks of it, the entire 24 mini-sets feature Emma’s nursery, Santa’s workshop, and an overall winter landscape. The set also comes with four mini-dolls which include Emma, Mrs. Santa, and two elves.

As a side note, it is also worth saying that Mein Spielzeug has also posted images of the LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar 2020 (75981). However, they were also quick to take it down, obviously because it is still on an embargo. You can do a Google search for this if you’re raring to see what this set has to offer, including what seems to be exclusive minifigures offered in this set. Interestingly, set 75981 also has the same release date of September 1, so I’m hoping that LEGO will officially reveal this anytime soon.

Lastly, we can also expect the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar (75279) to be released around this time. Both this and the LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar 2020 will retail for $39.99 each, similar to last year’s offering.

Building Instructions for the LEGO Easter Egg (40371) Now Available

The LEGO Trains 40th Anniversary gift-with-purchase promo is still up, and while we’re still far from this month’s next LEGO Store promotional freebie, LEGO is kind enough to release the building instructions for the LEGO Easter Egg (40371) ahead of its release later this March 23.

LEGO Easter Egg (40371)

If you recall, this limited edition LEGO Easter Egg (40371) is our next gift-with-purchase set slated to be offered from March 23 until April 13 as featured in the March 2020 LEGO Store Calendar. Coming in at 239 pieces, this set features a customizable egg that houses a small, brick-built chick. What is great about this freebie is that it comes with plenty of small, decorative pieces that are usually found in the new LEGO DOTS sets. Additionally, it features a modular design that allows you to have a small storage compartment to house these pieces and another for the brick-built chick. This new LEGO Easter Egg will be added to your cart (both in-store and online at LEGO Shop@Home) if your next LEGO purchase reaches a $50 and above price point during the abovementioned promo period.

While waiting for this set, you may want to give it a try and see if you can build your own LEGO Easter Egg since the set’s building instructions are now available online via LEGO’s customer service. Since it is a highly customizable set, I expect this to have plenty of room to allow you to personalize this set with your own choice of color scheme and design. You may get the building instructions in PDF format right here. Check out the parts list below and see if you have these in your own LEGO collection. I don’t see any rare parts included in them so you can easily swap these with ones with any colors that you have.

LEGO Easter Egg (40371)

Be sure to check back with your local LEGO store starting this last week of March for this limited edition freebie.

March 2020 LEGO Store Calendar Out Now

LEGO has now published its March 2020 Store Calendar and with it, we can catch a glimpse of the various promos that will kick-start our spring brick-building.

Free Exclusive LEGO Trains 40th Anniversary Set (40370)

Promo period: March 1-15, 2020

March 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

We first spotted this set last month, with some sketchy details on when and how it will be available. Like other commemorative sets, this one will be exclusively available in all LEGO stores and at LEGO Shop@Home for a single-receipt, qualifying purchases of any LEGO merchandise worth $99 and above. Expect this to be popular among AFOLs especially those who are fans of LEGO Train sets. There are plenty of LEGO fan websites that already gave their thoughts about this set, and it only makes me more excited to have it. This is one set that I’m looking forward to adding to my collection.

March 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

Here’s a cute, little Easter surprise from LEGO. Every LEGO purchase that you make from March 23 to April 13 worth $50 and above will entitle you to a free customizable LEGO Easter Egg (40371) set. Though we do not have official images of this promotional item, on the get-go we can see that its design is somewhat similar to what LEGO released in the UK back in 2004 (sets 4212850 & 4212852). Its retail value of $12.99 may also suggest that this free set will clock in at more or less 100 pieces. The brick-built chick is a cute addition to this freebie, with the yellow and green color scheme perfectly complementing the vibrant mood of spring. Be sure to check this out towards the last week of March if you want to bag this one.

Free LEGO Easter Bunny (30550)

Promo period: March 23-April 13, 2020 

March 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

It seems that LEGO intends this next freebie to complement its LEGO Easter Egg promo. For a minimum single-receipt purchase worth  $30 or more, you’ll get to add the LEGO Easter Bunny (30550) for free. It’s a pretty neat set to add to the LEGO Easter Egg, where you can have both sets once your purchase reaches a $50 price point.

LEGO 2020 Chinese New Year Sets Available Now!

We’re just two weeks away before we mark the celebration of this year’s Chinese Lunar New Year celebration and as a way to mark the occasion, LEGO has announced the release of a couple of seasonal sets that creatively reflects this event’s festivities. Two new LEGO 2020 Chinese New Year sets are now live over at LEGO Shop@Home and if you haven’t checked them out yet now is the best time to do so. Read on for more details.

If you recall, the initial wave of these Lunar New Year inspired sets first appeared last year as limited-edition sets released only in select countries in the Asia Pacific region. Needless to say, LEGO fans in other parts of the globe were not really that pleased with LEGO’s move in offering these sets in select regions only, considering the fact that these sets may well also cater to other LEGO fans who are into collecting LEGO vignette type sets. Eventually, LEGO listened and I’m personally glad to see that LEGO has embraced the fact the diverse interest of the LEGO community in general.

If you’re planning to get these LEGO 2020 Chinese New Year sets, it will also be helpful if you make your purchases starting January 13 to get the exclusive LEGO Year of the Rat (40355) seasonal set. Click on the following affiliate links to know more about these sets. Happy building!
