This April is super fun because Easter and April Fools’ Day falls on the same day. I can’t wait to see and hear about all the pranks people (including LEGO fans) come up with! And, the fun doesn’t stop there! LEGO is offering some really sweet freebies this month, and there are also new sets available! Take a look below! 🙂
➡ FREE LEGO MINIFIGURE FACTORY: This little set has so much going for it! Packed in a cardboard display-box, it includes a LEGO employee working on some nano-figures on an assembly line. There is a tiny blue LEGO Classic Space man, a black classic police officer, Pixal from LEGO Ninjago (white & purple character), a white mini nurse figure, and a red pirate. And, there is also another new color paintbrush! The #5005358 LEGO Minifigure Factory set is available April 1-15 with purchases of $75 or more at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ FREE LEGO STAR WARS DARTH VADER POD: Between April 13th to May 3rd you will get a with LEGO Star Wars purchases of $60 or more. This is a highly desirable set in the LEGO Collectible Pods series, so make sure you don’t miss out. The promotion will run at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO FRIENDS PODS COLLECTION: Speaking of collectible pods, if you like to collect them, don’t forget about the five new LEGO Friends pods that were released last month – one for each of the five LEGO Friends; the #853774 LEGO Friends Olivia’s Satellite Pod, the #853775 LEGO Friends Andrea’s DJ Pod, the #853776 LEGO Friends Emma’s Photo Studio Pod, the #853777 LEGO Friends Mia’s Exploration Pod, and the #853778 LEGO Friends Stephanie’s Pool Pod. Each of the pods include one of the girls, and a bunch of really sweet accessories. They are available under the LEGO Friends section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO IDEAS TRON: LEGACY AVAILABLE: The #21314 LEGO Ideas TRON: Legacy set is now available. We have discussed this set in detail a few days ago (see: LEGO Ideas TRON: Legacy Set Review). For your convenience, I’m repeating here the official description: Build, play and display with this futuristic #21314 LEGO Ideas TRON: Legacy set from Disney, featuring 2 Light Cycles, each with minifigure seats and translucent-colored light-style elements, plus a divisible TRON grid with attachment points for the vehicles. Use the grid as a display-base for the Light Cycles or split it in 2 to recreate the chase scene from Disney’s TRON: Legacy movie. Alternatively, stage an Identity Disc battle between the 3 included LEGO minifigures – Sam Flynn, Quorra and Rinzler – on the grid. This construction toy includes a booklet with information about its fan creator and LEGO designers, plus the lowdown on Disney’s TRON: Legacy movie and its main characters. Each Light Cycle measures over 1″ (5cm) high, 6” (17cm) long and 1” (4cm) wide. TRON grid/display-base measures over 8” (22cm) wide and 3” (9cm) deep. 230 pieces. Price: $34.99. Available at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.

In addition, there is also the new #41597 LEGO BrickHeadz Go Brick Me set for building your own LEGO BrickHeadz characters. See the LEGO BrickHeadz section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO COLLECTIBLE MINIFIGURES SERIES 18: The LEGO Collectible Minifigures: Party Series includes tons of new accessories and costumes, and features a host of brightly dressed characters.

Each minifigure comes in a sealed ‘mystery’ bag, together with one or more accessory elements, plus a collector’s leaflet and a unique display baseplate. Available for $3.99 each, at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.
In summary, both the first and second half of the month have excellent freebies that are highly desirable by collectors. If you would like either of them or both, I recommend that you place your order as soon as the promotion starts to make sure they are still available. There are a number of new sets to try out as well, and there is plenty to choose from amongst all the sets that have been released since the beginning of the year. This includes the #76105 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition, the #10260 LEGO Creator Downtown Diner (the latest in the LEGO Modular Building series), the #21039 LEGO Architecture Shanghai set, and many new sets under the LEGO BrickHeadz, LEGO Classic, LEGO City, LEGO Creator, LEGO Disney, LEGO Elves, LEGO Friends, LEGO Juniors, LEGO Minecraft, LEGO Nexo Knights, LEGO Ninjago, , LEGO DC Super Heroes, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, and LEGO Technic , and LEGO Speed Champions categories. Also, don’t forget some of recent big releases like the #21309 LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V, the #21313 LEGO Ideas Ship In A Bottle, the #70922 LEGO Batman Movie The Joker Manor, and the #10256 LEGO Creator Taj Mahal.
