The beginning of the year brought us a huge selection of new sets, and with February upon us, we get a few more. In addition, there are also some new freebies and promotions for the month. So, let’s take a look.
➡ FREE LEGO HIDDEN SIDE SET: Until February 9th, you can get a free exclusive #40408 LEGO Hidden Side Drag Racer with purchases of $45 or more. This set is a great introduction to the LEGO Hidden Side theme, or if you already have some of the sets, you can use it as an add-on to expand your collection. The offer is valid on all purchases at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ FREE LEGO SPACE PATCH: Until February 9th, LEGO VIP members will receive a free exclusive space patch with the purchase of the brand new #21321 LEGO Ideas International Space Station.

➡ LEGO IDEAS INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION: As I mentioned above, but it’s worth mentioning again, the #21321 LEGO Ideas International Space Station is now available. Originally designed and submitted to the LEGO Ideas platform by LEGO fan Christoph Ruge, the model is packed with authentic ISS details, including a poseable Canadarm2 and 2 rotating joints that coincide with 8 adjustable solar panels. The set also comes with a display stand, a buildable mini NASA space shuttle, and three mini cargo spacecrafts, plus two astronaut micro-figures. The148-page booklet is full of fascinating ISS facts, and information about the LEGO fan designer as well as the official set designers. The finished model measures over 7” (20cm) high, 12” (31cm) long, and 19” (49cm) wide. Comes with 864 pieces. Price: $69.99 – BUY HERE
➡ NEW LEGO BRICKHEADZ SETS: There are three new LEGO BrickHeadz sets; the #40377 LEGO BrickHeadz Donald Duck, the #40378 LEGO BrickHeadz Goofy & Pluto, and the #40380 LEGO BrickHeadz Easter Sheep. They are available at the LEGO BrickHeadz section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO EASTER BUNNY HOUSE SET: Another Easter set is the #853990 LEGO Easter Bunny House with 59 pieces and the price of $7.99. It features a buildable chicken house with chicken, a scooter and plants, an Easter Bunny minifigure, and a cardboard house/packaging combo. The set makes a cute little gift. Available at the seasonal items section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO CLASSIC BRICKS & ANIMALS SET: There is a new LEGO Classic brick box with 1,500 colorful pieces and instructions to build ten animals: a peacock, bull, penguin, dinosaur, unicorn, ostrich, snail, hippo, panda, and giraffe. Of course, LEGO Classic sets are all about free-building, so you can build anything else you want, or just use the pieces to boost your loose pieces collection. The #11011 LEGO Classic Bricks & Animals set is $59.99, and available at the LEGO Classic section of the Online LEGO Shop.
There are also some special events happening at LEGO stores. February 1-29, you can explore some new features of the LEGO City sets (light & sound, magnetics, and ripcord) with the help of the LEGO store Brick Specialists. On February 11th, there is an 18+ only building event to build a Valentine’s Day bear. February 17th is Minifigure Swap Monday, and February 20th is for a Build-Unbuild-Rebuild event in a group setting and hosted by a Brick Specialist (intended for ages 6-14). To register for these events, call your local LEGO store.
Another important event this month is that the LEGO Masters TV show will premier on Fox on February 5th. We talked about this event already (see links at the end of this post), but to recap, teams of LEGO enthusiasts will go head-to-head to face all kinds of building challenges with infinite possibilities and an unlimited supply of LEGO bricks. Throughout the competition, host Will Arnett and expert judges will encourage the amateur builders, introduce incredible challenges, and put the creations to the test. The competing teams who impress the judges the most will progress to the next round, until the finale, during which the top teams will face off for a cash prize, the ultimate LEGO trophy, and the grand title of LEGO Masters.
Although few new sets were added this month, there are tons of new sets to choose from that were released last month. So, don’t forget to check those out as well as the new sets section of the Online LEGO Shop.
