ICYMI: May 2021 LEGO Store Calendar Out Now

In case you missed it, the May 2021 LEGO Store Calendar has already been released online, and obviously, it’s all about LEGO Star Wars. And though we’re about t to conclude this year’s largest Star Wars marketing event, we still have a few hours left to take this May the 4th opportunity and all the LEGO freebies that it offers. Check out this month’s LEGO Store Calendar below.

 

Free Collectible LEGO Star Wars Tatooine Homestead (40451)

As I’ve mentioned earlier, this year’s May the 4th commemorative LEGO freebie is still up. You can still grab the Tatooine Homestead (40451) micro-build if you will make your next LEGO Star Wars purchase right now. Your single-receipt LEGO Star Wars purchase worth $85 will entitle you to a free copy of this brick-built mini diorama.

 

Free Imperial Shuttle (30388) Polybag

Those who will opt to visit their nearest LEGO brand store will also be in for a treat. Because every single purchase of any LSW product made in-store worth $40, the Imperial Shuttle (30388) polybag will be added to your cart for free.

 

Free LEGO DOTS Mini Frame (30556)

And if you still have a checklist of LEGO must-haves outside of the LEGO Star Wars theme, then LEGO is adding another incentive to your next LEGO purchase. For every single-receipt purchase of any LEGO sets or products worth $35 and more, you’ll get a free LEGO DOTS Mini Frame (30556). This promotional item is available from April 26 until May 9 this weekend. It may not exactly be your cup of tea but as a free LEGO set, it is still very much welcomed.

Speaking about other themes, there are certainly a lot of diverse new LEGO sets out there that deserve a second look. And in case you haven’t checked them yet, you may want to take a look at the latest LEGO Creator Expert NASA Space Shuttle Discovery (10283) for example, or the latest line of LEGO Harry Potter sets, and even the LEGO Vidiyo sets and Bandmates to name a few.

The April 2021 LEGO Store Calendar Encourages Builders To Go Beyond

The April 2021 LEGO Store Calendar is now out, inspiring LEGO fans to capture the wonders of the galaxy with its commemorative LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery (10283) set. As I’ve reported before, this latest LEGO and NASA collaboration is expected to arrive in LEGO brand stores and at LEGO Shop@Home this April. Check out the details below.

Other than the arrival of the LEGO NASA SSD set, LEGO is throwing in its usual set of freebies for April. We’re probably aware of them already since they’ve been around this month. But in case you still don’t have them, these seasonal freebies are still around until next week.

LEGO Easter Bunny’s Carrot House (40449)

232 pieces | Valued at $12.99 

This promotional set is available until April 5, 2021, and will be added automatically to your cart once your single-receipt LEGO purchase reaches $60 and more.

April 2021 LEGO Store Calendar

 

LEGO Easter Egg Chick (30579)

52 pieces | Valued at $4.99

The polybag freebie is yours for every single-receipt purchase of any LEGO products worth $40 and above. This offer is valid until April 5, 2021.

April 2021 LEGO Store Calendar

 

Other than these promotional items, LEGO will also be offering another freebie in the form of the LEGO DOTS Miniframe (30556). This 85-piece polybag set measures 20 x 19.5 x 1 cm and is a great desktop accessory to capture those picture-perfect moments. This offer is available from April 26 to May 9 and will be added to your shopping cart automatically once your LEGO purchase reaches $35 and above.

LEGO DOTS Miniframe (30556)

85 pieces | Available from April 26 to May 9, 2021

 

In-store activities are still obviously missing from our April 2021 LEGO Store Calendar, but there are still a lot of sets to be excited for next month. Other than the LEGO Space Shuttle Discovery (10283), we also have the arrival of the LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199) helmet set and the LEGO Ideas Winnie the Pooh (21326) to look forward to.

Happy building everyone and stay safe!

The March 2021 LEGO Store Calendar Puts Vidiyo on Center Stage

The March 2021 LEGO Store Calendar has now been uploaded, placing its latest LEGO Vidiyo theme under the spotlight. Other than the full reveal of this latest AR-powered theme which is slated to launch next month, the promotional calendar also features several exciting freebies that LEGO fans can expect from their next LEGO purchase.  Let’s take a look.

Free Exclusive LEGO Amelia Earhart Tribute (40450)

March 2021 LEGO Store Calendar

This offer is valid from March 6 to 14, 2o21, or while supplies last. First discovered earlier this month, this limited-edition set celebrates the life and accomplishment of the legendary aviator Amelia Earhart when she flew over the Atlantic in 1932. This exclusive gift-with-purchase set features a red Lockheed Vega 5b on top of a brick-built display set bearing our heroine’s name. It also comes with our first-ever minifigure version of Earhart which will undoubtedly be a prized possession for minifig collectors. I’m not really sure what LEGO’s intention behind the release of this set since the timing of the release is a bit early if we want to recognize her iconic flight which happened in May of 1932. Nevertheless, it’s a great collectible set I wouldn’t mind added to my cart. The LEGO Amelia Earhart Tribute (40450) will be automatically added to your cart for free once your single-receipt LEGO purchase reaches $100 and above. This offer is available both in-store and online.

 

Free LEGO Seasonal Easter Bunny’s Carrot House (40449)

March 2021 LEGO Store Calendar

Just in time for this year’s Easter celebrations, the LEGO Seasonal Easter Bunny’s Carrot House (40449) is the next promotional item to be available from March 15 to April 5, 2021. This set will be yours for free for every single-receipt purchase of any LEGO products worth $60 and above. It features a carrot-themed house with plenty of interior details and a mini rabbit build. I can easily imagine the Carrot House to be a great complementary set for 2018’s Easter Bunny minifigure. Similar to other promos, the Easter Bunny’s Carrot House will be available both in-store and online.

 

Free LEGO Easter Chick (30579) Polybag

For a lower promotional price point, you can get a free LEGO Easter Chick polybag from March 15 to April 5, 2021, for every single-receipt LEGO purchase worth $40 and above. It’s a rather scaled-down, polybag version of 2020’s limited-edition exclusive LEGO Easter Egg (40371).

Other than these freebies, LEGO has heavily promoted the release of the LEGO Vidiyo sets that features a pretty interesting collection of minifigures coming from its BeatBoxes and Bandmates subtheme. As of date, we can expect six LEGO Vidiyo Beatboxes, and 12 additional Bandmates to be available come March 1st.

And finally, in case you missed it, the LEGO Creator Expert Porsche 911 (10295) has already been released to LEGO VIP members, and will also be available to the general public beginning March. Be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home for more information on other upcoming sets.

The January 2021 LEGO Store Calendar Highlights This Year’s First Freebies

Happy New Year everyone and I sincerely hope that 2021 will be a great LEGO year for all of us. And if you’re planning to get hold of the latest LEGO 2021 sets that you’ve been itching to tick off from your LEGO new year wishlists, then you might want to check out these latest freebies featured in the January 2021 LEGO Store Calendar.

LEGO has now published its next monthly promotional calendar, confirming the gift-with-purchase sets that we have reported before. So before you head off to your local LEGO brand store or over at LEGO Shop@Home, you may want to take a quick look at what the January 2021 LEGO Store Calendar has to offer.

Free LEGO Ideas Vintage Car (40448) with purchases over $85.

January 2021 LEGO Store Calendar

As I’ve reported earlier, throughout the entire month of January or while supplies last, the LEGO Ideas Vintage Car (40448) is the next gift-with-purchase that will be added to your cart for any single-receipt purchase of LEGO sets or products worth $85 or more. Expect this teal-colored freebie to be a much-desired collectible, so better get this while you still can.

 

Free LEGO Harry Potter The Monster Book of Monsters (30628) with purchase of LEGO Harry Potter sets.

Offered alongside the LEGO Ideas Vintage Car, is another LEGO set that is long overdue for LEGO Harry Potter fans. The LEGO Harry Potter The Monster Book of Monsters (30628) is by far the best brick rendition of this Wizarding World oddity, and we now have the chance to add this to our collection for free. From January 1 to 31, 2021, or while supplies last, this next gift-with-purchase set will be added to your LEGO shopping cart with any qualifying LEGO Harry Potter set purchases set worth $75 or more. Expect this one to be a hot freebie as well so it will be helpful to plan your next LEGO purchase especially if you’re eyeing those new LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Moments sets.

 

Choose Your Gift: Free LEGO City Police Water Scooter (30566) OR Fire Helicopter (30567).

For a lower qualifying purchase of any LEGO products worth $40 and above, you can choose between taking home a free LEGO City Police Water Scooter OR Fire Helicopter polybags. Though I would prefer to bring home these 2 sets,  any LEGO freebie is very much welcomed. This offer is valid starting January 18 to 24, 2021, or while supplies last so better watch 0ut for these as well.

 

Usual in-store activities are still absent from the January 2021 LEGO Store Calendar, however, there are still some good reasons to visit your local LEGO Store observing all the necessary health protocols. We have a lot of interesting new-for-January 2021 LEGO sets to watch out for such as the LEGO Creator Expert Botanical Collection, LEGO BrickHeadz Pets, and the new LEGO City Roadplates just to name a few.

So what LEGO set are you planning to get this 2021? Share your LEGO wishlist in the comments below.

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.

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.

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!
