Besides the large wave of new LEGO sets that were just released (see: March 2017 – New LEGO Sets & Promotions), there are some interesting and unusual smaller items that you might have not noticed. Most LEGO fans will get their favorite new sets during the current Double VIP Points period (valid March 6-16th). So I thought you might want to check out these unique items as well while you are browsing the Online LEGO Shop. 🙂
➡ LEGO NINJAGO ACCESSORY SET: The #853687 LEGO Ninjago Accessory Set includes three minifigures with exclusive prints and accessories. This set is full of unique pieces! Take a look at the torso-prints, the gray legs with black boots, the light-gray ninja hood, the black ice-cream cones, translucent-black minifig heads, the very rare sushi printed round tile, and extra hair pieces. The price is $12.99, and the set is available under the LEGO Ninjago section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO BATMAN MOVIE ACCESSORY SET: The #853651 LEGO Batman Movie Accessory Set is another super nice minifig-pack with three unique minifigures, torso prints, and accessories. Notice the very useful dual-moulded dark-blue legs with black boots on one of the officers! Chief O-Hara’s hair-piece is an exclusive color that only appears in here. The price is $12.99, and the set is available under The LEGO Batman Movie section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO EASTER EGG HUNT: The #40237 LEGO Easter Egg Hunt is a small and inexpensive set, but it is full of rare and interesting elements. The set features three of those fancy new fence panels in black, a henhouse with a chicken, a small flower garden with two lamps and a mailbox, a vegetable garden with a secret compartment, plus various buildable accessories and elements, including a wheelbarrow, magnifying glass, three eggs and a basket. The price is only $9.99, and the sets is available under the seasonal items section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO HUMAN-SCALED MUG IN BLACK: The standard LEGO cups that appear in so many LEGO sets are iconic part of LEGO’s history that has been around since 1979. In recent years LEGO released human-scaled versions of the cup that can be used as a mug in your home or office, so you can feel like a minifig! So far red, blue and translucent-purple mugs were available, and now LEGO also added a black one to commemorate The LEGO Batman Movie. The mugs are only $9.99, and you can find them at various sections (just search for mug) of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO BATMAN MOVIE NOTEBOOK: LEGO has been releasing notebooks for a good number of LEGO themes. Their unique feature is the baseplate embedded in the front cover that you can use for building. Small plates, tiles and other accessories are included with the notebooks, so you can decorate the cover. The LEGO Batman Movie Notebook is the latest in the collection. The price is $12.99, and you can find it under The LEGO Batman Movie section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO BATMAN MOVIE MAKER SET: The #853650 LEGO Batman Movie Maker set is similar to the old LEGO Studios sets, giving you a setting, backdrop and characters for your own LEGO brickfilms. This set features a double-sided cardboard backdrop with alternative scenes on each side, buildable LEGO scenery, camera rig to hold a smartphone, and a Batman minifigure with assorted props. The film set and backdrop measure over 7” (20cm) high, 14” (37cm) wide and 3” (10cm) deep, and the camera rig measures over 5” (15cm) high, 4” (12cm) wide and 5” (15cm) deep. The price is $19.99, and you can find it under The LEGO Batman Movie section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO MINIFIGURE PLUSHIES: Awww… so cute! This 12” (32cm) tall cuddly toy is an up-scaled version of the Batman minifigure and features brushed tricot fabric with silkscreen-printed decoration, including the iconic Bat-shaped symbol, cape and embroidered face details. There are other characters in this line, including Batgirl, and Nya and Kai from LEGO Ninjago, but in the USA only Batman is available at this point. Hopefully the other ones will be added soon. The price is $24.99. You can find Batman under The LEGO Batman Movie section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO NINJAGO TEMPLE OF AIRJITZU: The #70751 LEGO Ninjago Temple of Airjitzu is not a new set, but I wanted to point out that it is currently on sale. This is one of the most beautiful sets LEGO ever released. Even if you are not into Ninjago, but you do like Asian architecture, you will be very pleased with this set. It really is gorgeous (you can read my review here: LEGO Ninjago Temple of Airjitzu Review). The normal price is $199.99, and with 2028 pieces and a stunning design it is totally worth it at full price. The set is currently $40 off at $159.99. That’s an excellent deal, and you will also get Double VIP Points. You can find it under the LEGO Ninjago section of the Online LEGO Shop.
Hope this list helps you find something unique that you can add to the regular LEGO sets during the Double VIP Points period. They make great gift items, or (like in the case of the minifig accessory sets) excellent additions to your current LEGO collection.
