December 2019 – New LEGO Sets & Promotions

December is usually a busy month for LEGO fans. The holiday break and colder weather means more indoor activities, including LEGO building time! And, if we were really good all year, Santa may even bring us some new LEGO sets to build! To help make LEGO dreams come true, the LEGO Group and LEGO retailers continue to offer various promotions up to Christmas, then run clearance sales after the holidays. So, let’s take a look.

FREE EXCLUSIVE LEGO MINI GINGERBREAD HOUSE: Between December 6th and December 24th, you can get the free exclusive #40337 LEGO Mini Gingerbread House with purchases of $99 or more. This is a lovely mini version of the #10267 LEGO Winter Village Gingerbread House, the latest set in the LEGO Winter Village series. Purchasing the set would qualify you for the mini version, but of course you can also buy other sets instead. Valid at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.

FREE LEGO COLLECTIBLE OBI-WAN KENOBI MINIFIG: Between December 6th and January 1st, you can get the free collectible #30624 LEGO Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi Minifigure with LEGO Star Wars purchases of $40 or more. This offer is also valid at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.

FREE EXCLUSIVE MINI BATMOBILE: Until December 5th, you can get the free exclusive #40433 LEGO Mini 1989 Batmobile with the purchase of the #76139 LEGO 1989 Batmobile. This offer is also valid at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.

LEGO BUILD TO GIVE CAMPAIGN: LEGO is continuing the Build to Give campaign we talked about previously. You can go into your nearest LEGO store to build and display an ornament (or build at home), and share your creation with friends online with the #BUILDTOGIVE hastag. For every ornament built and shared, LEGO will donate a set to a child in need. Their target is one million LEGO sets.

LEGO HOLIDAY GIFT SHOP: As we discussed previously, the online LEGO Holiday Gift Shop has been open since last 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: We will talk about smaller gift items a bit later, but for now, here is a list of some of the most desirable LEGO sets released in the last couple of months. The #75252 LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series Imperial Star Destroyer is the largest LEGO Star Wars set to date. The #42110 LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender, and the #42100 LEGO Technic Liebherr R 9800 Excavator are two impressive sets that are also challenging to build. The #71044 LEGO Disney Train and Station comes with a fully motorized train. The #10269 LEGO Creator Expert Harley-Davidson Fat Boy and the #10265 LEGO Creator Ford Mustang would make great gifts for car and motorcycle 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 and the #21320 LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils set are perfect for dinosaur fans. And the #10267 LEGO Winter Village Gingerbread House is the latest in the LEGO Winter Village series. You can find them all at the New tab of the Online LEGO Shop. Also, check the Sale section of the Online LEGO Shop for sets currently at 20-30% discount.

Also keep in mind that if you’re shopping at the Online LEGO Shop for Christmas and you want to make sure your package arrives on time, the cutoff date and time to place an order is December 20th, 12 PM EST. What do you think? What’s on your Christmas shopping list? Are you planning to get anything this month? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below!

    Ohh!! I want the mini gingerbread house!

  • brickhead December 1, 2019, 11:14 AM

    The gingerbread house is one of my favorite winter village sets. I recommend it for everyone.

  • Martin December 1, 2019, 2:17 PM

    The Batmobile is really growing on me. I don’t like some of the design choices on the sdie, but it looks phenomenal from the back.

  • Jay - Mouth of Lightning December 1, 2019, 3:23 PM

    Update on my ninjago collection: as a Christmas present for myself, I got kendo Kai and zane’s Spinner sets. Now I have 22 of the 26 wave 2 spinner/booster pack characters! My dream is to someday finish my collection. Only problem is, Fangdam can only be bought for $100+ :/ but at least I now have all of the kendo, ZX, and NRG spinners!

    • Jay - Mouth of Lightning December 1, 2019, 3:25 PM

      Yes, I (almost 20) do still play with my ninjago spinners with my siblings

      • admin December 1, 2019, 8:19 PM

        Ninjago for life! Ninjago IS life! 😀

        But with all seriousness, it’s always nice to have you stop by. 🙂

        • Jay - Mouth of Lightning December 1, 2019, 8:39 PM

          I still check the posts (almost) daily 🙂 and yes, ninjago for life!

    • Sith015 December 1, 2019, 3:35 PM

      Wow. Why is Fangdam’s spinner so expensive?!

      • Jay - Mouth of Lightning December 1, 2019, 8:35 PM

        @Sith015, I believe that not as many fangdam spinner sets were released (same with NRG Jay) and that has led to them being more rare

        • Håkan December 1, 2019, 8:48 PM

          Some Grim Fangdamo there…

          Anyway, there are a few sets on Bricklink a lot cheaper, although they’re missing the cards. It seems like it’s mainly the cards that would be missing…

    • kingcobra December 1, 2019, 3:54 PM

      Hey, Jay, I remember you from the early Ninjago days! Great to see you here! I prefer the first generation spinners over the new ones. Although I admit I like those dual molded pieces. Some of them are on sale right now, but I don’t know if you collect those.

      • Jay - Mouth of Lightning December 1, 2019, 8:38 PM

        @kingcobra, hello there! are you referring to the 2011/2012 spinners? Those are the ones I collect – so much fun to play with! I never could get into the airjitzu and other new spinny things. The original spinners felt so much more like an actual game with the cards and different weapons.

  • Legostuff14 December 2, 2019, 12:35 PM

    Hey, Jay- mouth of lightning. Don’t feel bad about the age thing and the participation of Lego. I’m in my thirties and still works with Lego. It’s my stress reliever and a world I can go to all by myself. I live and breathe Ninjago. Ninjago forever! lego for life!😁

    • Håkan December 2, 2019, 12:59 PM

      I’m still a bit baffled by that official Nin’jago pronunciation, instead of the more logical Ninja’go. (Even in Danish, I’d say something like Ninja’go would make more sense.)

      An English name in itself isn’t that surprising, since I’m an old spacer and Lego gave their themes English names already in the late 80’s- early 90’s. It’s been the language of global pop culture for quite some time now.

      • admin December 2, 2019, 1:18 PM

        I just looked it up, and according to the Ninjago wiki (based on what the story writers said), there are two ways to pronounce Ninjago. Pronounced like it’s two words, Ninjago and Go, is the battle cry of the ninja. It is often written as Ninja… GO!!! The second pronunciation is /nin-JAH-go/, which is used when referring to the place.

  • Peter December 2, 2019, 3:10 PM

    Still no news on the new modular? Isn’t it usually announced by now?

    • admin December 2, 2019, 7:40 PM

      It should be any day now. 😉

  • Legostuff14 December 2, 2019, 5:44 PM

    I think some people might find the term “Ninja” a problem because for it stands for. I fact a toy company had the same concerns when they created the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as toys. Both themes have become very successful.

    • admin December 2, 2019, 7:40 PM

      Is that because ninja are basically assassins?

      • Håkan December 2, 2019, 9:37 PM

        I remember the UK airing of the first TMNT cartoon was censored, in that it was renamed to Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles, and apparently some details such as Michaelangelo’s nunchucks were removed. It’s been a long time since then, though.

        • admin December 2, 2019, 10:15 PM

          Interesting. I wasn’t aware of ninja being so controversial. When I was a kid we constantly played ninja. 😀

  • Legostuff14 December 2, 2019, 9:57 PM

    Exactly, ninja means assassin . I believe it’s Japanese but I’m not sure. What next Kamikaze toads? Lol! I’m a huge Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan. However , I don’t like the new cartoon show that’s out right now. Back to ninjago. I can’t wait for the new sets to come out. This cyber /video game theme is going to be interesting. In fact I would be able to combine nexo knights with them.

    • admin December 2, 2019, 10:17 PM

      Hm… Nexo Knights and Ninjago could be an interesting combo. To me, the orange and blue of Nexo Knights was a little garish, but I liked the badguys. 😈

    • Håkan December 3, 2019, 7:58 PM

      Well, despite the bucketload of TMNT ripoffs and parodies since the mid-80’s, that’s one I’ve actually missed…


      (Battletoads is a thing, however…)


      • admin December 3, 2019, 8:58 PM

        Adolescent radioactive black belt hamsters. Wow. Okay… 🙄

  • Legostuff14 December 3, 2019, 8:25 AM

    Kind of like the purple and gray colors for all the bad guys from nexo knights later on in the series . It’s an interesting combination.
