As usual, a new month means new LEGO deals, and this time of the year is particularly exciting as we gear up for the year-end holidays. So let’s take a look at what LEGO has for us this month! 🙂
➡ FREE LEGO CREATOR HOLIDAY TRAIN: Just like in previous years, LEGO is going to offer two free sets; one in October and one in November. The first one is the #40138 LEGO Creator Holiday Train, which will be available October 13th to November 13th with purchases of $99 or more – while supplies last. This is an incredibly cute little train that I think makes up for the lack of new LEGO Winter Village set this year.
➡ LEGO CREATOR WINTER TOY SHOP: Speaking of the LEGO Winter Village sets, the #10249 LEGO Creator Winter Toy Shop is now available to everyone, not just LEGO VIP members. You can read the full review of this set, along with a comparison to the 2009 version here: Brick Breakdown: LEGO Winter Toy Shop. If you don’t have the original set already, I’m sure you will be very happy with this one, and if you do, you might still consider purchasing it for the upgrades. Also, don’t forget about last year’s #10245 LEGO Santa’s Workshop and the LEGO City, LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Friends Advent Calendars. You can find them all under the seasonal items section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ NEW LEGO THANKSGIVING SET: And talking about holidays, don’t forget about the #40123 LEGO Thanksgiving Feast set, a charming little vignette with great details. It is only $9.99, and you can find it under the season items section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO STAR WARS FREE POSTER & NEW SETS: September was huge for LEGO Star Wars as the new “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens” sets were unveiled. You can find reviews to all of the sets at the end of this post. In addition, the sixth and final LEGO Star Wars Collectible Poster will be available from October 26th – November 1st with any LEGO Star Wars purchase. As we have discussed previously (see: LEGO Star Wars Posters Collection for 2015), there are six free collectible posters – one for each episode – but the time you can get them is quite short so you need to pay attention to the dates. All the new sets are available at the .
➡ LEGO DOUBLE VIP POINTS PERIOD: According to the calendar above, from October 1st to the 4th you can earn Double VIP Points on all LEGO purchases. This is an excellent and rare opportunity to accumulate points for future purchases. As you can see, the time period listed is very short, however LEGO’s customer service have confirmed that this is incorrect and the actual period is until October 14th. You can earn Double VIP Points both at local LEGO stores and at the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO IDEAS WALL-E AVAILABLE NOW: While this set supposed to have been released at the beginning of last month, it was not available until towards the end of the month because of delays due to defective hinge bricks at the neck section of the model. This only effected the North American market, and the set is now available under the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop. You can also read a full review of the set here: LEGO Ideas WALL-E Available Now!
➡ LEGO DIMENSIONS AVAILABLE NOW: The LEGO Dimensions toys-to-life game was released a few days ago, and while previously it was only available on Amazon, it now has a dedicated section at the LEGO shop as well. We have written a guide to the sets here: LEGO Dimensions Available Now – Full Guide. You can find all the current starter packs and add-on packs at the LEGO Dimensions section of the Online LEGO Shop.
Also, don’t forget about the huge wave of new sets that were released in the last couple of months! This is a great time to get them due to the Double VIP Points period. Some of the highlights include the new LEGO Ninjago sets, the new LEGO Friends sets, new LEGO Elves sets, new LEGO Scooby-Doo sets, new LEGO Minecraft sets, new LEGO Technic sets and more. You can find links to details and reviews at the end of this posts.
So what do you think? What are you planning to get and build this month? Feel free to share in the comment section below! Also, if you are having trouble choosing which set to get, you are welcome to discuss it here. The LEGO fan community can help you in making a decision. Sometimes all it takes is just talking it through with likeminded friends.
