November 2020 LEGO Store Calendar Features the LEGO 1989 Batwing

LEGO servers are now updated to include the November 2020 LEGO Store Calendar, giving us a glimpse of things to come in your nearest LEGO brand store. As the LEGO Group gradually resumes operations of all of its stores, we can still notice the lack of in-store building activities that the stores used to have. Despite these limitations, there are still plenty of reasons to visit (following health safety protocols in your area, of course) your fave LEGO Store and to check out the freebies that they have in store for next month. Take a look at next month’s LEGO Store promotional calendar below. You may also download a PDF copy of this LEGO promotional calendar right here.

The LEGO 1989 Batwing (76161) Takes Center Stage

Front and center in next month’s November 2020 LEGO Store Calendar is Tim Burton’s 1989 vision of the Dark Knight’s aerial assault vehicle now captured in LEGO brick form. The LEGO 1989 Batwing (76161) features an 18+ branding that caters to the adult LEGO fan community. It comes in at 2,363 pieces and retails for $200. It had an early VIP launch last October 21 and is expected to be available for all starting November 1.

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

October 26 to November 1, 2020 

This polybag freebie has been around since the start of this week and is still currently available over at LEGO Shop@Home or over at your local LEGO brand store. For every LEGO purchase worth $35 and more, you’ll have the LEGO Hidden Side El Fuego’s Stunt Cannon (30464) added to your cart automatically. This set comes in 46 pieces and is valued at $4.99

Free LEGO Star Wars Han Solo Carbonite Metal Keychain (5006363) for VIP Members

November 1 to 8, 2020 

November 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

LEGO VIP members are in for a treat this November. From November 1 to 8, LEGO VIP members with single-receipt purchases of LEGO Star Wars sets worth $100 or more will be entitled to receive an exclusive LEGO Star Wars Han Solo Carbonite Metal Keychain (5006363) or while supplies last. As far as I recall, this LEGO Star Wars element has only appeared in five LEGO Star Wars sets, so it’s a nice move from LEGO to finally have this as a keychain accessory. The window to claim this VIP-exclusive freebie is quite narrow, so be sure to time your next LSW purchase accordingly. This freebie will be offered in all LEGO brand stores and over at LEGO Shop@Home.

VIP Sweepstakes: Limited-Edition LEGO Store Lester Minifigure

November 9 to 29, 2020

November 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

Now that the LEGO VIP minifigure sweepstakes seem to be a regular staple of the LEGO VIP Rewards Center, the next exclusive collectible minifigure to be raffled is the limited-edition LEGO Store Lester minifigure. This rare minifig first appeared back in 2016 as a raffle prize during the grand opening of the LEGO Leicester Square brand store in London. Back then, only a total of 275 pieces were given away to walk-in customers who visited the store in its opening. Fast-forward to 2020, you may use your 50 VIP points if you wish to try your luck in bagging this exclusive, starting November 9 until 29. Remember, no purchases necessary to join the LEGO VIP minifigure sweepstakes.

 

Other things worth noticing in the November 2020 LEGO Store Calendar is the official announcement of this year’s LEGO Black Friday Sale. The highly anticipated annual LEGO sale event will happen from November 27 to 30. Stay tuned for more updates on the hottest LEGO sets that will go on sale during this promo period.

November 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

Finally, you may also mark your calendars on November 17 for the official launch of the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special, which will begin streaming over at Disney+ starting on this date. This animated Holiday Special directly follows the events in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. We find Rey embarking on a time-spanning adventure that will allow her to meet some of the iconic characters in the entire Star Wars saga. It will be an interesting mash-up of all LEGO Star Wars characters wrapped around that LEGO holiday humor.

So what do you think of the November 2020 LEGO Store Calendar? Are you excited for next month’s freebies? Let us know in the comments below.

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.

So what do you think of the US October 2020 LEGO Store Calendar? What will be your next month’s LEGO purchase? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

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.

 

So what do you think about the September 2020 LEGO Store Calendar? What are freebies and sets are you most excited about? Let us know what you think in the comments below.  And for the latest LEGO sets that are out now, be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home.

August 2020 LEGO Store Calendar Now Up With LEGO Super Mario Taking Center Stage

LEGO.com has released its digital version of the August 2020 LEGO Store Calendar, putting the spotlight in its upcoming LEGO Super Mario expansions sets and its next 18+ set, the LEGO Nintendo Entertainment System (71374).

Similar to its previous store calendars, there’s no virtually no mention of any in-store events and activities due to the current pandemic, but it doesn’t stop LEGO from giving out its offerings and freebies. Let’s take a quick look at what select local LEGO brand stores have to offer. Please note that not all LEGO stores are open in compliance with local laws and regulations.

Free LEGO Super Mario Monty Mole and Super Mushroom (40414) Expansion Set

August 1 to 8, 2020

If you recall, this expansion set was first officially unveiled by LEGO earlier in April as a pre-order gift for those who will get the LEGO Super Mario Stater Course (71360). And it’s nice to see that the offer is still up when you purchase the said base set from August 1 to 9. Needless to say, it’s a great way to expand your LEGO Super Mario adventure without paying for an extra buck.

 

Free LEGO Super Mario Super Mushroom Surprise (30385) Polybag Expansion Set

August 1 to 16, 2020

Here’s another incentive to get the LEGO Super Mario Starter Course – for a minimum, single-receipt purchase of any LEGO Super Mario sets worth $40 or more, you’ll have this polybag freebie thrown into your cart as well. Available from August 1 to 16, the LEGO Super Mario Super Mushroom Surprise (30385) polybag comes in at 18 pieces that adds another level of interactive fun in the Starter Course. As it seems, the LEGO version of the Super Mushroom is only found in these promotional freebies, except for the Boomer Bill Barrage (71366) set. LEGO is really making these deals more appealing.

 

Free LEGO Speed Champions Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo Evo (30342) Polybag 

August 17 to 31, 2020

We caught glimpse of this freebie since last November and its nice that LEGO is now adding this as a promotional offer as well. This next polybag offering is the smaller cousin of the LEGO Speed Champions Lamborghini Urus ST-X & Huracán Super Trofeo EVO (76899) which was released earlier this year. So if you’re planning to get your next LEGO Speed Champions set, then it will be better to schedule your next purchase during these dates.

 

For LEGO VIPs: Limited Edition LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Phoenix Minifigure Sweepstakes

August 17 to September 6, 2020

The LEGO VIP Rewards Center continues its exclusive minifigure giveaway with this next offer following its Shazam and Deadpool Duck sweepstakes. The next LEGO Marvel SDCC minifig exclusive up for grabs is the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Phoenix minifigure, given away during San Diego Comic-Con 2012. For more info and promo mechanics, be sure to visit LEGO.com/VIP.

Other than the LEGO Super Mario sets arriving in August, we also have plenty of sets coming from various themes that are slated to make their debut next month. Besides the much-awaited LEGO Super Mario Nintendo Entertainment System (71374), we have other LEGO set offerings that AFOLs can certainly be excited for: we have the exquisite LEGO Ideas Grand Piano (21323), LEGO Technic Ducati Panigale V4 R (42107), and the LEGO Architecture The White House (21054) just to name a few. For more info on upcoming LEGO sets, be sure to visit LEGO Shop@Home.

So, what’s in your LEGO shopping list next month? Let’s talk about it in the comments below.

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.

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!

May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar Highlights and More

May the 4th is just around the corner, as highlighted by LEGO’s May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar. And in keeping up with this year’s busiest week for LEGO Star Wars fans, LEGO is now doing its share of promotions and offerings from the galaxy far, far away.

Now just a word of caution – I am not encouraging all of you to go out there for a frenzied shopping spree to get the latest Star Wars merch. Since LEGO and other establishments have complied with the government’s marching orders to stay at home then, by all means, let’s continue to do so. So until such time that we ease up on our quarantine guidelines, LEGO has made it clear that it will keep its 150+ stores around the world temporarily closed until further notice.

But of course, we don’t necessarily need to remove the fun from this otherwise festive occasion. LEGO Shop@Home is still up and running and we can still enjoy the many LEGO freebies that LEGO has to offer. With that out of the way, let’s check out the details of next month’s LEGO promotional and freebies. You may also download a PDF version of the May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar via LEGO.com.

LEGO Star Wars UCS  A-Wing Starfighter (75275)

May 1 onwards

May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

This year’s LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series offering will be the A-Wing Starfighter (75275). Coming in at  1,673 pieces this set will retail for $199.99 starting May 1.

 

Free Limited-Edition LEGO Star Death Star II Battle (40407) Set

May 1 to 4, 2020

The LEGO May the 4th gift-with-purchase (GWP) set has been revealed last week, and it pays homage to that trench run scene aboard the Empire’s Death Star II straight from Episode 6 Return of the Jedi. This LEGO Star Wars GWP set will only be available from May 1 to 4 or until supplies last. This micro build will be added to your cart automatically once your LSW purchases reach $75 or more, so I hope you don’t miss out on this one.

 

Double VIP Points  on All LEGO Star Wars Sets

May 1 to 4, 2020

May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

Double VIP points are back for all LEGO Star Wars purchases. If you’re eyeing on those sleek LEGO Star Wars helmets or that cute little D-O (75278) set, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth with the double VIP points that come with them.

 

Free LEGO Mother’s Day Card (5005878)

May 4 to 10, 2020

May 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

LEGO is one with the world in celebrating this year’s Mother’s Day. And of course, you can always express your love to all the super moms out there with this lovely buildable token. This offer will be available from May 4 to 10 and will be added to your cart once your LEGO purchase reaches $40 and above.

 

Free LEGO City Beach Buggy (30369)

 May 18 to 31, 2020

If you plan your purchases carefully for May, then chances are, you can still get this nice LEGO City polybag for free. For the same minimum single-receipt purchase of $40 and above of any LEGO set or merchandise, this beach combing mini build will be included in your cart upon checkout. I’ve always been a fan of polybags especially those from the LEGO City theme, so this one will be a nice part of any collection.

 

Though the first week of May is predominantly for LSW fans, you’ll be glad to know that some of the LEGO Minions sets are now available including other film-inspired sets such as the LEGO DC Superheroes Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157) and the LEGO Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger (42111). For CMF collectors, the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 20 (71027) is also available as well.

And while we’re waiting for this pandemic to be somewhat under control, LEGO has launched its #LetsBuildTogether campaign to help LEGO fans and families have a better home experience during these trying times. For more info, you may visit LEGO.com/LetsBuildTogether. You may also want to check out Tyler’s series of video tutorials called Quarantine Creations for more inspiring builds.

Keep safe and happy building!

April 2020 LEGO Store Calendar Now Available

Allow me to begin by saying that next month’s LEGO Brand Store Calendar is noticeably underwhelming – and for a very good reason. Considering the global pandemic caused by the notorious COVID-19, all LEGO brand stores are effectively closed until the first half of April. However, that does not deter LEGO from making our Spring Break a bit more fun, even at home. You may still want to check out the April 2020 LEGO Store Calendar and what freebies are in store together with your next LEGO purchase. You may download a PDF copy, or view the gallery below.

As you may notice, the April 2020 LEGO Store Calendar is pretty much bare, with LEGO only giving emphasis on the freebies that it will offer via LEGO Shop@Home. In fact, two of these have been offered already since last week, with one promotional item to expect during the first half of April. I am still optimistic though that the LEGO store closures that we are experiencing will not last long beyond April, and I hope that normal store operations, and our lives in general, will soon be back on track.

At the most, we can be excited about the upcoming LEGO Ideas Pirates of Barracuda Bay (21322) which will be most likely released via LEGO’s online shopping portal. Anyways, here are some of the LEGO freebies in store for us next month via LEGO Shop@Home or LEGO catalog phone orders.

Free Exclusive LEGO Easter Egg (40371)

For single-receipt purchases of any LEGO products worth $50 or more from March 23 to April 13 will entitle you to a free LEGO Easter Egg (40371). This gift-with-purchase set comes in at 239 pieces and features a chick mini build inside a decorative brick-built egg casing.

Free LEGO Easter Bunny (30550)

Similar to the LEGO Easter Egg, the LEGO Easter Bunny (30550) will also be offered during the same time period of March 23-April 13 but on a lower qualifying purchase. For every single-receipt LEGO purchase (online or via phone) worth $30 and more will allow you to bring home this hopping mini build as well. It somehow comes close to what LEGO stores offer with their Monthly Mini Builds (MMB).

Free LEGO Trolls Poppy’s Carriage (30555)

April LEGO Store Calendar

This final freebie for the month of April features a polybag promotional for the LEGO Trolls World Tour theme. For every single-receipt purchase of any LEGO Trolls set worth $35 and above will qualify you for a free LEGO Trolls Poppy’s Carriage (30555) polybag. Though the LEGO Trolls sets have been out since January, it is still nice that LEGO managed to throw in an incentive for LEGO fans who will opt to buy these new sets. Though some parts of the world manage to show the movie, the US is yet to schedule a film release tentatively slated for April 10.

As I mentioned earlier, all LEGO brand stores are closed until April 12 which practically suspends all in-store activities such as Make and Take events, minifigure swaps, and other socially engaging activities. Its a drag really, but it’s for the best of all in the long run.

Keep safe brick fans and keep on building!

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. For starters, the upcoming LEGO DOTS customizable accessory kits take center stage in this monthly store calendar, together with other spring-themed building activities. Let’s check out the details.

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.

Free LEGO DOTS Mini Frame (30556)

Promo period: March 9-22, 2020 

March 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

Further expanding the creative possibilities of the LEGO DOTS theme, LEGO is throwing another freebie with this exclusive polybag offering. Fans can expect this new LEGO DOTS Mini Frame (30556) to be added to their cart once their purchases reach a minimum of $35 or more anytime between March 9 to 22.

Free LEGO Easter Egg (40371)

Promo period: March 23-April 13, 2020

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.

Build. Unbuild. Rebuild

In-store event: March 11, 2020

Kids ages 6 to 14 can come to their local LEGO Store between 4-7PM of March 11 to participate in this in-store building event. As a token for participating, each child will receive a small gift. However, parents or caretakers must ensure that their children are pre-registered at their local LEGO Store starting March 6.

How Do You DOT?

In-store event: March 19, 2020  

Participants ages 6 to 18 can visit their local LEGO Store on March 19 to create their own LEGO DOT accessory and bring it home for free as a gift for their selves. However, LEGO DOT bracelets (sets 41900, 41901, 41902, 41903 & 41912) needed for these accessories are sold separately. This building event requires in-store pre-registration beginning March 6.

Other than the LEGO DOTS sets, there are plenty more to watch out for once March kicks in such as the LEGO Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163), LEGO Marvel Black Widow’s Helicopter Chase (76162), the LEGO Ninjago Golden Zane Minifigure Accessory Set (40374), and LEGO Fairground Minifigure Accessory Set (40373) to name a few. If you time your next LEGO purchase accordingly, it’s possible to get the commemorative LEGO Train 40th Anniversary Set and the LEGO DOTS Mini Frame in one go. It is also the same for the LEGO Easter-themed freebies since they are offered within the same promo period.

Check Out the February 2020 LEGO Store Calendar and Related Promos

The month of February is just around the corner, and LEGO Stores are gearing up for its next wave of promotions that will level up our LEGO shopping experience. The February 2020 LEGO Store Calendar puts the spotlight on the next LEGO Ideas set that most of you are probably excited for. Read on for the neat promotions and incentives that are up for grabs next month at your local LEGO Store.

Free Exclusive Space Patch for LEGO VIPs

Promo period: February 1 – 9, 2020

February 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

LEGO VIPs who are eyeing to get the LEGO Ideas International Space Station (21321) will be happy to know that LEGO is throwing in a limited-edition Space Patch for every purchase of the said set. If you remember back in May last year that LEGO also offered a similar promo as an incentive to those who bought the LEGO Creator Expert NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander (10266). I’m not really into collecting patches but if I will have my way, I will still prefer to have a free and exclusive LEGO set to go along with my new LEGO Ideas ISS. This latest Space Patch will be available from February 1 to 9 both online and in-store or until supplies last.

 

Free LEGO Hidden Side Drag Racer (40408)

Promo period: January 24 – February 9, 2020

February 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

If you’re planning to get the LEGO Ideas ISS, then be sure to check this next freebie in your cart. The LEGO Hidden Side Drag Racer (40408) promo has gone live already starting last Friday and you can still get this one until February 9. Qualifying purchases of any LEGO products worth $45 and more will entitle you to this set, or while supplies last.

 

Free LEGO Friends Chocolate Box and Flower (30411)

Promo period: February 7 – February 14, 2020

February 2020 LEGO Store Calendar

Here’s another brick treat just in time for Valentine’s Day. From February 7 to 14, any single-receipt purchase of $35 and more will allow you to bring home a free LEGO Friends Chocolate Box and Flower (30411) polybag. At 75 pieces, it’s a nice desk accessory to celebrate Happy Hearts Day. If you time your LEGO purchases with the intention of getting the LEGO Ideas ISS and its exclusive VIP patch at the same time (granted that supplies are steady), then the best time to get it will be from February 7-8. Making your purchases during these dates is a sure way to bag all these freebies.
