Black Friday Week LEGO Sales & Promotions

As we discussed this past weekend, LEGO VIP members already got access to many of the upcoming Black Friday sales and promotions. If you are not yet a LEGO VIP member, make sure you sign up. It’s free, LEGO won’t spam you, and you get access to all the upcoming opportunities. Below we will take a look at what we can expect for the rest of this week.

WEEK OF BLACK FRIDAY LEGO SALES: Throughout this week and even beyond, there are going to be LEGO sets on sale, up to 30% off. That’s not a bad discount, especially if you can combine it with Double VIP Points. This is the time of the year where LEGO clears out old stock to free up room for the large wave of new sets that are coming in January (which we also talked about this past weekend). You can find all the sets offered with a discount at the LEGO sales section of the Online LEGO Shop.

BLACK FRIDAY LEGO PROMOTIONS: During Black Friday weekend, you will get the limited edition #40433 LEGO Mini 1989 Batmobile with the purchase of the newly released #76139 LEGO 1989 Batmobile. Another freebie is the #40338 LEGO Christmas Tree set with purchases of $120 or more. You can take advantage of these offers at official LEGO stores and at the Online LEGO Shop.

LEGO CHRISTMAS SETS: While there is still plenty of time to shop for Christmas, if you would like to get any of the LEGO Winter Village sets, I would recommend you get them early. The recently released #10267 LEGO Winter Village Gingerbread House is the latest in the collection, but you can also get the #10263 LEGO Winter Village Fire Station from last year and the #10254 LEGO Winter Village Holiday Train from a couple of years ago. I especially recommend getting the train because it’s an older set, and because it frames the LEGO Winter Village setup nicely, and also ads dynamic movement to it. All three sets are $99.99 each, and are available at the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Other Christmas-related sets are the four LEGO Advent Calendars, one for LEGO City, one for LEGO Friends, one for LEGO Star Wars, and one for LEGO Harry Potter fans. The two non-licensed calendars are $29.99, and the licensed ones are $39.99. The boxes have little windows for each day leading up to Christmas with a small LEGO creation or minifigure behind it. It’s a great way for kids to count down to Christmas and have a small model to build. Visit the seasonal items section of the Online LEGO Shop.

LEGO HOLIDAY GIFT SHOP: The online LEGO Holiday Gift Shop has been open since the beginning of the month. This is a special section of the Online LEGO Shop, which helps guide those who are purchasing gift items. Experienced LEGO fans may not need this section, but those who are not as familiar with current LEGO sets and themes, could greatly benefit from it. It has a section for the hottest gifts and exclusives like the #71044 LEGO Disney Train and Station, the #21319 LEGO Ideas Central Perk set, the #21318 LEGO Ideas Tree House, the #10267 LEGO Creator Gingerbread House, and more. The LEGO Holiday Gift Shop also has quick-links to current LEGO promotions, the sales page, and stocking stuffers (popular sets under $20). Again, this is a great page to direct those who would like to shop for Christmas but need a little help with making a selection.

RECENTLY RELEASED EXCLUSIVE SETS: Although there are no big sets released this month, I just wanted to make sure you are aware of all the large sets that were released in the past couple of months you may consider for the holidays. The #75252 LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series Imperial Star Destroyer is the largest LEGO Star Wars set to date. Two very impressive large LEGO Technic sets were released last month; the #42110 LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender, and the #42100 LEGO Technic Liebherr R 9800 Excavator. The #71044 LEGO Disney Train and Station comes with a fully motorized train. The highly popular #21319 LEGO Ideas Central Perk set is finally back in stock. The #10269 LEGO Creator Expert Harley-Davidson Fat Boy would make a gorgeous gift for Harley fans. The #21318 LEGO Ideas Treehouse looks beautiful on display, and can be changed to fall colors to match the season. The #75936 LEGO Jurassic Park: T. Rex Rampage is a great set for fans of dinosaurs. Speaking of dinosaurs, the #21320 LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils set is now available as well. The #10265 LEGO Creator Ford Mustang is another excellent set in the LEGO Creator vehicles line, and not as challenging as the LEGO Technic sets. You can find them all at the New Items tab of the Online LEGO Shop. Also, check the Sale section of the Online LEGO Shop for discounted sets.

    I thought I’d take advantage. I had a couple hundred dollars worth of points accumulated and I thought I’d try to get the Christmas tree and brick-built block while doing some Christmas shopping.

    It was the first time I’ve tried to redeem points since they changed the system. I found it annoying, cumbersome, limiting AND they reduced the purchase price of the items I had chosen before calculating my eligibility for the promos. The effect of that is to completely spoil my Lego experience. I cancelled the purchase but now I’ve got $100 certificate that’s already started expiring.

    At this point I suspect I’ll look for some opportunity to use up the remaining VIP points and then stop following Lego and the incentives to buy.

      Thanks for sharing that. I have heard similar stories and feedback from many others. They have been relayed to LEGO through the Ambassador Forum by myself and others. They know the issues, and they already made some changes. For example now you no longer have to redeem a voucher before going to the LEGO store. My guess is (or at least my hope) that they will reintegrate the VIP membership to the Online Shop as well. So, although I totally understand and share your frustration, don’t give up yet.

        You know, they’re *toys*. They’re supposed to be fun. The promos should add to the fun not be a carrot on a stick that just gets farther away. That’s not a promotion, it’s a manipulation and a frustration.

        If it isn’t fun anymore and I feel the money I’ve spent over the years (a considerable sum) with one understanding is turned into an unpleasant and frustrating coercion, I’m done.

        There are other interesting things and experiences in this world. I choose the ones that honor my interest and loyalty not abuse it.

        • admin November 27, 2019, 11:56 PM

          I understand. If there are other interesting things and experiences that give joy, go for it. Life is short. There is no point in dragging out something that doesn’t make you happy. And, you’re always welcome to stop by, even if you no longer participate in the LEGO hobby. Your thoughts and insights are appreciated. I especially valued your input as an educator.

          • rainey November 28, 2019, 6:32 PM

            And I have always appreciated how you constantly come up with material that’s engaging and enlightening.

            I wish you well in your continuing Lego experience! <3

    I think I may focus on the reitiring sets and the discounted sets. I don’t really have anything else new I want this year. Save my money for the January sets.

    Any of you guys getting the Batmobile? I’m debating on that one. I like the mini Batmobile too.

    • George November 26, 2019, 11:29 AM

      I’m buying the Batmobile solely for the mini-build. I’ll sell the large one, I have no room at all for it. I’ll buy it in store to make sure I get all the extra’s I can when I buy it on Black Friday.

      • Emperor P. November 26, 2019, 11:34 AM

        That’s not a bad idea! I also kind of like the small one better.

        • Håkan November 27, 2019, 2:29 PM

          Does it have that many rare bricks? I wonder if the instructions would be available online…

  • Adam III November 26, 2019, 2:38 PM

    I watched a review on the Christmas tree, and it’s bigger than I expected. And it can turn! So you rotate the top where the star is, and the bottom section with the train turns. Making it look like the train is going around. I just wish the treshold to get it wasn’t as high.
