LEGO Harry Potter The Monster Book of Monsters (30628) Confirmed as Next 2021 Promotional Set

Last month, LEGO gave us a teaser of our next LEGO Harry Potter promotional in the form of the LEGO Harry Potter The Monster Book of Monsters (30628). Aside from the set’s building instructions now posted over at LEGO’s Customer Service Portal, it now seems that LEGO Shop@Home has also updated its listing to now include a full product page for this brick-built critter.  Check out its description below.

LEGO Harry Potter The Monster Book of Monsters (30628)

320 pieces | Valued at $19.99

LEGO Harry Potter The Monster Book of Monsters

Kids can recreate one of the most memorable scenes from Harry Potter™ and the Prisoner of Azkaban™ with the cool, collectible LEGO® Harry Potter The Monster Book of Monsters (30628) toy. When Harry receives new school books for his third year at Hogwarts™, the Book of Monsters scurries around the room trying to bite him! Likewise, when this LEGO model is pulled across a flat surface, its mouth opens and closes. The set also includes a LEGO Draco Malfoy™ minifigure decorated in his school uniform.

  • The brown, LEGO® magical book is decorated with teeth, straps, and studs.
  • A mechanism opens and closes the book’s mouth when it is dragged across a flat surface.
  • With 320 pieces and measuring over 4” (12cm) long and 3” (10cm) wide, this buildable Harry Potter™ Monster Book of Monsters makes a great Christmas or birthday gift for kids aged 10 and up.

From the get-go, LEGO makes it clear that this set is intended to be a freebie to be made available anytime soon. And now that it has made its official appearance at  LEGO Shop@Home, it’s just a matter of time when this promotional set will be offered. In fact, The Brick Fan was able to confirm that the LEGO Harry Potter The Monster Book of Monsters will be offered sometime in January for qualifying LEGO Harry Potter purchases worth $75 and above. If this proves to be true, then we can most likely expect two promotional items in January, the other one in the form of the LEGO Ideas Vintage Car (40448). It’s a really great way to start your LEGO 2021 shopping if such is the case.

If you’ve set your eyes on the upcoming LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Moments sets and are planning to get them as well, then having The Book of Monsters added to your LEGO HP collection is certainly a welcomed treat. Just be sure to keep tabs with LEGO Shop@Home and here on our blogsite for further updates.

How’s Your LEGO Build Day?

Christmas has come and gone, and though we’re about to conclude a pretty sad year for most of us, there’s also a lot to be thankful for this holiday season. So if you just opened your next exciting LEGO set this season of sharing, or probably looking forward to those sweet upcoming LEGO 2021 sets,  you may have most likely leveled up the holiday fun with your family friends for an awesome LEGO Build Day.

In case you missed it, LEGO has launched its global LEGO Build Day campaign to bring the family together, to share the joy of building and creating using LEGO bricks. Here are some of the brick creations that LEGO fans around the world shared over social media using #LEGOBuildDay.

And though this post may come a bit late, I sincerely wish from my heart that LEGO Build Day has been a memorable event to you and to every family that the LEGO brick has touched. Yes, this year may have been difficult with all the craziness that 2020 has brought in but like what I’ve said, there’s always something to thank for and to be happy about, such as the simple joys of spending this season with your loved ones and creating new traditions such as building with LEGO.

So with all of us here in The Brick Show, we just wish all of you a very merry Christmas and cheers to a hopeful 2021!  Hope your LEGO Build Day turned out great.

And the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz Set Will Be…

Last month, the LEGO Ideas platform has launched another fan activity that celebrates the upcoming release of the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set. Fans of the brick-built collectible theme were given a chance to vote for the next BrickHeadz, coming from four pre-determined candidate themes.

As of this writing, there are currently more than 100 BrickHeadz that were already released, and it will definitely take some time before we see the likes of the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set. And to make the voting process even more fun, the LEGO Ideas Team has rolled out four likely candidates that will be given the honor to mark such an occasion: Lilo & Stitch, Minecraft, Jaws, and Star Wars.

I have to say that I was excited about the idea of finally seeing an official, brick-built Stitch set (which somehow almost made it to the cut with Tyler’s LEGO Stitch product idea). But this being a majority vote among 13,000 LEGO fans who participated, the honor of being the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set is now reserved for yet another LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz set. That’s how democracy works I presume, even if you don’t particularly like the outcome.

The 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set will feature a Star Wars character.

Currently, the Stars Wars subtheme of the LEGO BrickHeadz series is by far the most represented theme in the said genre – with 16 LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz sets under its belt. I guess that’s a testament to how popular this LEGO subtheme is among the majority of the brick-loving masses.

It is also interesting to note that LEGO may also be continuing its trend of offering official brick renditions of some of the most popular pop-icons of our generation, similar to the likes of LEGO BrickHeadz pairs such as that of Marty MacFly and Doc Brown (41611), and Peter Venkman and Slimer (41622).  And bringing the possibility of having a LEGO Jaws set on the table is quite revealing on the part of LEGO. Does it mean that LEGO has something in the works coming from this direction? We just have to wait and see.

In the meantime, we might need to wait a little longer before we can see the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set under the Star Wars theme. And with so many present and future Star Wars candidates to choose from, it will be quite a challenge for LEGO to zero-in on the best SW character to fill in the commemorative spot.

So who do you think from the galaxy far, far away will be honored as the 150th LEGO BrickHeadz set? Which Star Wars characters do you think will eventually win this title? Or are you even happy with the results? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

LEGO Ideas Vintage Car (40448) Gift-With-Purchase Set Coming in January 2021

Last week, we reported on a rumor that was making rounds across the LEGO fan community that the next LEGO Ideas set may already be on its way towards LEGO brand stores and at LEGO Shop@Home anytime soon. And to make it even more special, the rumored release of the LEGO Ideas Medieval Blacksmith in January 2021, will be accompanied by the next gift-with-purchase (GWP) set coming from the fan-inspired theme. And from the looks of it, the LEGO Ideas Vintage Car (40448) is all poised to be the initial GWP set of 2021. Since we don’t have any better images as of the moment, I guess we just have to settle for this one. I’ll update this post once LEGO releases their official images.

LEGO Ideas Vintage Car (40448)

According to Promobricks, the LEGO Ideas Vintage Car will be added to your LEGO shopping cart automatically for every single-receipt qualifying purchase of any LEGO products worth 85 euros or more via LEGO Shop@Home and at LEGO brand stores. The promo may last until the middle of January 2021 or while supplies last.

If you recall, the LEGO Ideas  Vintage Car emerged as the overall winner in the LEGO Ideas Build a Vintage Car building contest held in the latter part of 2019, earning more than 1,400 LEGO fan votes among other entries. This upcoming freebie is based on the creation of LEGO fan Versteinert and his Aedelsten Deluxe MOC. There’s not much of a difference from the fan version to that of the final LEGO Ideas version, save for some minor changes in the front of the car and details on the minifigure couple included with the set.

We haven’t heard anything yet from LEGO US regarding this next promotional freebie, but I can safely guess that more details (and even perhaps a better, closer look) about the LEGO Ideas Vintage Car (40448) may appear on the copy of the January 2021 LEGO Store Calendar which will be uploaded to LEGO servers anytime soon.  Stay tuned for more updates.

For LEGO VIPs: Here’s a Chance to Win an Exclusive LEGO Originals Wooden Minifigure

In case you missed it, the LEGO VIP Rewards Center has been updated to include a new sweepstakes contest that gives all LEGO VIP members a chance to win an exclusive LEGO Originals Wooden Minifigure.

Launched towards the end of 2019, the upscaled 5:1 wooden minifigure display piece is a nod to one of LEGO’s most recognizable pop-icon symbols that began in 1978. And this time around, LEGO VIP members now have a chance to bring home not just the generic kind of LEGO wooden maxifig, but a Colette-branded collectible exclusively designed by Sarah Andelman. For those who are not familiar with her works in the fashion industry, Sarah Andelman is the founder and creative director of Colette, a chic Parisian concept store known for its limited-edition range of collectibles and luxury brands, and its quirky mix of lifestyle products. Unfortunately, after 20 years in the business since 1997, Colette eventually closed its doors in 2017.

Each raffle entry to this exclusive LEGO Originals Wooden Minifigure sweepstakes costs 50 VIP points. The raffle draw will run until January 10, 2021, across eligible countries. For more information, be sure to check out LEGO’s contest rules and terms of service.
