LEGO is running several new promotions during the month of July, including freebies, Double VIP Points, and some new sets. So, let’s take a look at everything that’s happening this month!
➡ FREE LEGO CREATIVE FUN SET: Between July 1st and July 26th, you will get the #40411 LEGO Creative 12-in-1 Set free with purchases of $85 or more. This is a really neat set, similar to what we have previously gotten for Christmas, with 240 pieces to build 12 different alternate models related to summer. This offer is valid on all purchases at official LEGO stores (if they reopened in your area) and the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ FREE BACK TO SCHOOL PACK: Towards the end of the month, between July 27 and July 29, you will get the #5005969 LEGO Back to School Pack free with purchases of $50 or more. This offer is also valid on all purchases at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ FREE CHRISTMAS IN JULY SET: Then, for some reason, LEGO is giving away the #40338 LEGO Seasonal Christmas Tree with purchases of $100 or more between July 24 and July 26. I guess they may have had too many of these left over from last year? It’s a great set though and it includes some exclusive pieces. This offer is also valid on all purchases at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO VIP MONTHLY SWEEPSTAKES: The Monthly Sweepstakes this month is for the very rare and limited-released 2012 San Diego Comic Con Exclusive Bizarro minifigure. Go to your LEGO VIP account and follow the instructions to enter the sweepstakes with your VIP points.
➡ LEGO DOUBLE VIP POINTS: Two sets that come with Double VIP Points this month are the #11717 LEGO Classic Bricks Box and the #10698 LEGO LEGO Classic Large Creative Brick Box. If you need loose elements, this is a good time to get them. Both sets are available at the LEGO Classic section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO CROCODILE LOCOMOTIVE AVAILABLE: The #10277 LEGO Creator Crocodile Locomotive is now available! We talked about this interesting historical train previously (see: LEGO Crocodile Locomotive Coming!) It’s not the prettiest locomotive out there, but it looks great for display and even customization. It’s available at the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO BRICK SKETCHES COMING SOON: LEGO fan Chris McVeigh has been well known for his LEGO Christmas ornaments and his Brick Sketches. So, when LEGO hired him last year as a designer, he had a chance to pitch his idea of brick sketches to the company as a potential product line. And they were accepted! There is an interesting interview with Chris at Brickset if you would like to hear more about how the collection came about. The four sets currently in the collection as official LEGO sets are as follows: #40386 LEGO Brick Sketches Batman, #40391 LEGO Brick Sketches First Order Storm Trooper, #40428 LEGO Brick Sketches The Joker, and #40431 LEGO Brick Sketches BB-8. They will be available on July 15th for $19.99 each at the LEGO Batman and LEGO Star Wars sections of the Online LEGO Shop.
The many new summer sets are already available the rest of the world, but we will continue to have to wait for them in North America. This gives us the time to catch up on some of the earlier sets of the year. Keep in mind that the LEGO factory in Mexico is still closed, so stock at the Online LEGO Shop has been quite sketchy. LEGO is doing its best to reroute some of the stock from other regions, but you will see a lot of LEGO sets on backorder or temporarily out of stock. So, if you see something that you like, and its available, I would suggest purchasing it right away before it goes out of stock again at the Online LEGO Shop.
What do you think? Are there any new sets that you would really like to get? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below!
