It is no secret that one of the most exciting month for LEGO fans is August. Why? Because August 1st is when a whole new batch of LEGO sets get released across almost all LEGO themes, as well as several exclusives. So starting from today it is worth to browse the Online LEGO Shop. 🙂
The free gift this month is the #40109 LEGO Creator Mini MINI Cooper with purchased of $99 or more, and from August 25th to September 14th you can also get a free LEGO Legends of Chima Chima Worriz’ Fire Bike polybag with purchases of $50 or more. Starting mid-month LEGO VIP members will get early access to the #76023 LEGO Ultimate Collector Series Batman Tumbler, which will be available for all LEGO fans on September 1st. You can check the August LEGO Calendar below for other happenings, including the introduction of the interesting new theme called LEGO FUSION we talked about before (see link at the end of this post for a preview).
As far as new LEGO sets, there are lots of them! First of all the #10242 LEGO Creator MINI Cooper is now available for all LEGO fans, not just LEGO VIP members. You can find it at the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.
This is the first time two sets are released at the same time in the LEGO Ideas category; the #21109 LEGO Ideas Exo Suit, and the #21110 LEGO Ideas Research Institute. These are all LEGO fan submitted models that were voted on by the public and LEGO had chosen to release as an official LEGO sets. You can read more about them at the links at the end of this article. Both of these are very exciting sets that I highly recommend you get as soon as possible. LEGO Ideas sets normally only have one production run and there is a real danger of them selling out fast. Also, don’t forget about the previously released #21108 LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Ecto-1 – another very nice design by a LEGO fan. You can find all three of them at the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.
The new LEGO Friends Jungle Series, as well as the #41058 LEGO Friends Shopping Mall (which is the largest LEGO Friends set to date) are now all available. The LEGO Friends Jungle sets are particularly nice with many interesting new elements and animals. You can find all of the new sets at the LEGO Friends section of the Online LEGO Shop.
All the new icy and fiery set from LEGO Legends of Chima are now available, as well as a whole range of new LEGO Chima Speedorz. Many new tribes have been added this season with some really interesting characters, including some with translucent body parts! You can find all the new sets at the LEGO Legends of Chima section of the Online LEGO Shop.
LEGO Technic is also getting some very interesting new sets. And not just one or two, but seven! There is the really sweet #42022 LEGO Technic Hot Rod, the #42023 LEGO Technic Construction Crew with three construction vehicles, the #42024 LEGO Technic Container Truck, the super exciting #42025 LEGO Technic Cargo Plane, and there is more! If you are into complex and realistic LEGO models that will challenge and amaze you see the whole line-up at the LEGO Technic section of the Online LEGO Shop.
The highly popular LEGO City Arctic sets got two new additions; the #60062 LEGO City Arctic Icebreaker and the #60064 LEGO Arctic Supply Plane. If you like this frozen and breezy theme, check out the new sets at the LEGO City section of the Online LEGO Shop.
