In August we got a very large number of new LEGO sets, so September is a more quiet month. This is a good thing though, as it allows LEGO fans to catch up on some of the new sets they have been saving up for. But the quiet doesn’t last that long, as on the 15th of the month LEGO VIP members get access to not one, but two brand new exclusive sets! And there are also a couple of promotions you might want to take advantage of. Below are the details of all the September LEGO shopping events. 🙂
➡ FREE LEGO NEXO KNIGHTS SET: From September 5th to the 18th you can get a free LEGO Nexo Knights Ultimate Lavaria set with purchases of $50 or more. If you haven’t tried out LEGO Nexo Knights yet, this is a good way to get one of the main characters, and some of the interesting new accessories. This offer is valid on all LEGO purchases, not just on LEGO Nexo Knights sets. It will be added to your shopping cart when you are ready to check out at the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ DOUBLE VIP POINTS ON NEXO KNIGHTS SETS: The second promotion is also related to LEGO Nexo Knights this month. You can earn Double VIP Points on the #70321 LEGO Nexo Knights General Magmar’s Siege Machine of Doom (love that name!), and the #70315 LEGO Nexo Knights Clay’s Rumble Blade. Also, make sure you check out all the other awesome new LEGO Nexo Knights sets that were released last month (if you haven’t done so already). Some of the most notable ones are the #70321 LEGO Nexo Knights General Magamar’s Siege Machine of Doom, the #70322 LEGO Nexo Knights Axl’s Tower Carrier, the #70323 LEGO Nexo Knights Jestro’s Volcano Lair, and the #70326 LEGO Nexo Knights The Black Knight Mech. You can find all the new sets under the LEGO Nexo Knights section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO DISNEY CASTLE AVAILABLE: The LEGO VIP early access quantities of the #71040 LEGO Disney Castle sold out within just a few days when the set became available for LEGO VIP members last month. So yeah, this castle is hot, and all reviews on it have been glowingly positive. It is now available for everyone, not just LEGO VIP members, and hopefully LEGO will be able to keep up with the demand. As I mentioned last month, I expect this set to be backordered and hard-to-find as we get closer to the holidays , so it you really want one, I would suggest to get it as soon as possible. You can find it under the LEGO Exclusives section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO HOLIDAY TRAIN VIP EARLY ACCESS: The #10254 LEGO Creator Winter Holiday Train is going to be available for LEGO VIP members on the 15th of September. This is one of the nicest holiday sets LEGO ever released, and it is a perfect match for the LEGO Winter Village series. Or you can just set it up to run around the Christmas tree or your LEGO city. You also get a full circle of train-tracks, and the train can be motorized with LEGO Power Functions. I expect this set to be very popular and hard-to-find. You can read more about it and watch the designer video here: LEGO Holiday Train Pictures & More! It will be available under the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO STAR WARS DEATH STAR VIP EARLY ACCESS: The second set that LEGO VIP members will have early access to on the 15th of September is the new version of the . The set is basically the exact same thing as the #10188 LEGO Star Wars Death Star that was released back in 2008 and remained a best-seller until its recent retirement. The new version of the set has a slightly larger part-count, and updated minifigures. If you don’t own the original set, you might want to check it out. It will be available under the .
➡ LEGO MINECRAFT SKIN-PACKS & MORE: The #21127 LEGO Minecraft The Fortress is now available. This is the set we talked about recently that includes the first LEGO Minecraft horse! Also, the two new LEGO Mincraft Skin Packs are now available. You can find them under the LEGO Minecraft section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ NEW LEGO ARCHITECTURE SETS: Two new LEGO Architecture sets are now available, both highly praised by LEGO fans. The two sets are the #21029 LEGO Architecture Buckingham Palace and the #21030 LEGO Architecture United States Capitol Building. You can find them under the LEGO Architecture section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO CREATOR VOLKSWAGEN BEETLE: The #10252 LEGO Creator Volkswagen Beetle became available last month, but I wanted to highlight it here again because I think it is one of the nicest sets of the year, and with a very reasonable price. You can find a full review of the set here: LEGO Volkswagen Beetle Review & Thoughts. It is available under the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ NEW 2016 LEGO NINJAGO SETS: Nine new LEGO Ninjago sets released last month, and I thought to do a bit of a recap to make sure you don’t miss out. The #70588 LEGO Ninjago Titanium Ninja Tumbler, the #70589 LEGO Ninjago Rock Raider, the #70590 LEGO Ninjago Airjitzu Battle Grounds, the #70591 LEGO Ninjago Kryptarium Prison Breakout, and the #70592 LEGO Ninjago Salvage M.E.C. are small to mid-size sets, but they all have interesting features. The #70593 LEGO Ninjago Green NRG Dragon comes with an awesome dragon, and the #70594 LEGO Ninjago Lighthouse Siege got a nice Asian-style building. The two largest sets are the #70595 LEGO Ninjago Ultra Stealth Raider, and the #70596 LEGO Ninjago Samurai X Cave Chaos. You can find them all under the LEGO Ninjago section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ NEW 2016 LEGO SUPER HEROES SETS: Three new sets for released for LEGO Marvel fans last month; the #76057 LEGO Spider-Man: Web Warriors Ultimate Bridge Battle, the #76058 LEGO Spider-Man: Ghost Rider Team-up, and the #76059 LEGO Spider-Man: Doc Ock’s Tentacle Trap. And Batman fans got the #76054 LEGO Batman Scarecrow Harvest of Fear, and the #76055 LEGO Batman Killer Croc Sewer Smash. You can find them all under the LEGO Marver Super Heroes and LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes sections of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ NEW 2016 LEGO TECHNIC SETS: The #42055 LEGO Technic Bucket Wheel Excavator also became available last month. With almost four thousand pieces, this is the largest LEGO Technic set ever released. There are some other really excellent new LEGO Technic sets as well, including the #42054 LEGO Technic CLAAS XERION 5000 TRAC VC, and the #42053 LEGO Technic Volvo EW160E. You can find them at the LEGO Technic section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ NEW 2016 LEGO FRIENDS SETS: The LEGO Friends Amusement Park sets are also new releases. This includes the #41127 LEGO Friends Amusement Park Arcade, the #41128 LEGO Friends Amusement Park Space Ride, the #41129 LEGO Friends Amusement Park Hot Dog Van, the #41130 LEGO Friends Amusement Park Roller Coaster, and the #41133 LEGO Friends Amusement Park Bumper Cars. There are some other noteworthy new LEGO Friends sets, including the #41126 LEGO Friends Heartlake Riding Club, the #41132 LEGO Friends Heartlake Party Shop, the #41134 LEGO Friends Heartlake Performance School, and more. You can find them all under the LEGO Friends section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ NEW 2016 LEGO ELVES SETS: LEGO Elves also got some very beautiful new sets, including the #41177 LEGO Elves Precious Crystal Mine, the #41178 LEGO Elves Dragon Sanctuary, the #41179 LEGO Elves Queen Dragon’s Rescue, the #41180 LEGO Elves Ragana’s Magic Shadow Castle. You can find them at the LEGO Elves section of the Online LEGO Shop.
As you can see, there are plenty of new LEGO sets to choose from. And this might also be a good time to start planning for the holidays and make a wish-list for Santa. If you have any of the large exclusive sets on your list like the #10252 LEGO Creator Volkswagen Beetle, the #71040 LEGO Disney Castle, the #10253 LEGO Creator Big Ben, the #42056 LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and some of the earlier large sets, I would suggest that you get those as soon as possible, as they will likely be backordered by the time the holiday shopping season comes around. The smaller and wider release sets should be readily available at most LEGO retailers and the Online LEGO Shop. Also, remember that LEGO lowered the minimum threshold for free shipping from $75 to $35. So if you just want to make a smaller purchase now it is easier to qualify for free shipping.
And as I always mention, it is a good idea to take a look at the Sales & Deals section of the Online LEGO Shop before you check out. You can often find some great deals there on interesting older sets that are being retired. Last time I checked there was a large number of LEGO Ninjago, LEGO Nexo Knights, LEGO Angry Birds, LEGO Friends and more sets on clearance. You can find them all under the Sales & Deals section of the Online LEGO Shop.
