Can you believe we are in March already? Yeah, time flies! And for LEGO fans this month is full exciting new LEGO sets, LEGO themes, promotions and events. In fact it is almost like the beginning of the year all over again! We will go through everything below, so follow along. 🙂
➡ 2015 LEGO BIONICLE SETS & FREE HERO PACK: The resurrected LEGO BIONICLE theme got a large wave of brand new sets in January, which has been a long-time dream of original BIONCLE fans. It also seems like the theme is getting traction with younger LEGO fans who are new to this epic saga. There are no new LEGO sets this month in this category, however there is a very sweet offer: From March 1st to the 20th you can get a free LEGO BIONICLE Hero Pack with any purchase. The pack includes a translucent-orange Mask of Fire, a buildable blue Skull Spider, a booklet, stickers and poster. Please note that this free set is offered while supplies last. Knowing how dedicated BIONICLE fans are, if you want this freebie I would suggest you place your order (remember, this offer is valid with any order, not just BIONICLE, and there is no minimum purchase limit) right away instead of waiting later in the month. You can find all the BIONICLE sets at the LEGO BIONICLE section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2015 LEGO ELVES SETS & FREE POLYBAG: This is a brand new theme launching this month. We have discussed this exciting new theme previously (see links at the end of this post). All I can say that it is all around excellent: cute mini-dolls, gorgeous colors, many new elements and accessories, great playability! We will be reviewing the sets shortly, but so far everyone who was able to get them early can only say good things about LEGO Elves. And to thank you for trying out this new theme, LEGO is offering a free LEGO Elves Azaris’s Magic Fire polybag with any LEGO Elves purchase for the entire month. You can find all the new sets at the LEGO Elves section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ DOUBLE VIP POINTS: The most notable promotion this month is the return of Double VIP Points for LEGO VIP members from March 14th to the 29th. Which basically means that whatever you buy will earn you twice as much in VIP Points (i.e.: $5 for every $50 you spend). This is LEGO’s way of helping out the Easter Bunny. And talking about Easter, there is also a very sweet new LEGO Easter set called #40121 LEGO Painting Easter Eggs. You can find it under the seasonal items section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2015 LEGO MARVEL SUPER HEROES SETS: The #76042 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes SHIELD Helicarrier is finally available for non-LEGO VIP members! This humongous set is the latest in the Ultimate Collector’s Series, and looks really good. (You can find a link at the end of this post to the full review, along with the motorized version.) Please note that the LEGO SHIELD Helicarrier is currently shown with a bit of delayed shipping as LEGO VIP fans cleared it out last month during the early access period. However you can still order it, and you may just have to wait a few days until it gets shipped out. In my experience backordered sets still ship quickly, and usually much faster than the expected ship date mentioned. You can find it under the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes section of the Online LEGO Shop.
Besides the LEGO SHIELD Helicerrier that are other great sets this month, including; #76041 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The Hydra Fortress, #76032 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The Avengers Quinjet City Chase, #76038 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Attack on Avengers Tower, #76031 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The Hulk Buster Smash, and more. You can find them all under the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2015 LEGO NINJAGO SETS: The long-awaited new wave of LEGO Ninjago sets are finally here! These are related to the current season of the LEGO Ninjago TV show that is a particularly enjoyable series. I especially like the bare-chested and tattooed badguys! You can find all the new sets under the LEGO Ninjago section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2015 LEGO ULTRA AGENTS SETS: This is the second wave of another very popular theme with high-tech agents, spies, drones and cyber-criminals. They all come with a lot of play-value, a great range of minifigures, and lots of cool details and transforming features. They are just as awesome as LEGO’s licensed sets but without the higher price. You can find them all under the LEGO Ultra Agents section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2015 LEGO PIRATES SETS: Another brand new theme this month! LEGO Pirates are being brought back with five awesome sets for LEGO Pirates fans! Great color-scheme, updated minifigs (including bluecoats!) and a new pirate ship! And one of the best part? You can buy the entire range for less than $200! You can find all the new sets under the LEGO Pirates section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2015 LEGO CITY SETS: LEGO City had a new wave last month, but the release of some of the new demolition vehicles got delayed. However now they are here! The LEGO City Demolition Site set is particularly great. Also don’t miss the fun LEGO City Service Truck with a port-a-potty. You can find all the sets under the LEGO City section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2015 LEGO JUNIORS SETS: This is a fairly new line for LEGO first introduced last year. Its target is younger kids who are transitioning from LEGO DUPLO to regular LEGO sets. They all contain normal LEGO minifigures, but the construction of the sets themselves are very easy. For adult LEGO fans the most interesting thing about this theme is that they contain many very nicely decorated elements, and they are all printed – there are zero stickers in these sets. The beach, pirate, and supermarket sets are particularly nice in this wave. You can find them all under the LEGO Juniors section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ RETIRING LEGO IDEAS SET: Just a reminder that LEGO recently announced that the #21109 LEGO Ideas Exo Suit has been decommissioned last month. This means that while the set is still available, no more is going to be made. So if you want one, get one while you can. I have three. It is one of my all-time favorite sets. Great for LEGO Classic Space fans and those who like tinkering with mechs and greeblings. You can find it under the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.
In addition to the above mentioned deals and promotions, if you live near an official LEGO store, there are plenty of events you can participate in during the month. On March 3rd, the Monthly Mini Model Build will be a robot. From March 15th to April 26th there is a LEGO BIONICLE Target Game event where kids can build some of the BIONICLE characters and test their shooting skills. And from March 16th to April 19th, you can play with some of the new LEGO Elves sets. Also on March 21st and 28th kids can participate in the LEGO Club Meetings.
And remember that if you got the 2015 LEGO Wall Calendar that was offered previously, don’t forget to redeem the free LEGO Build-A-Minifig set coupon with any purchase during this month. And if you are shopping online, it is worth taking a look at the Sales & Deals section of the Online LEGO Shop before you check out. There are some nice sets there with a good discount, and likely more will be added as they get retired.
So what do you think? Are you excited about this month’s offers and new releases? Are you planning to get any of the new sets? Which one or which ones? And which of the promotions are you most excited about? The BIONICLE mask? The LEGO Elves set? The Double VIP Points? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
