While January was the big month for the release of the first wave of 2017 sets, February is also going to be very significant. First of all, The LEGO Batman Movie is going to be in theatres on February 10th, so a lot of the promotions and special events will be related to the movie. February is also the time for the various toy fairs, which is significant for LEGO fans, as this is when many of the new sets and themes for the year get revealed. And then there is also Valentine’s Day. So let’s take a look at everything in detail. 🙂
➡ FREE DC SUPER HERO GIRLS POLYBAG: The new LEGO DC Super Hero Girls is proving to be very popular, and February is going to be a good time to pick up any of the new sets, if you haven’t done so already. Between February 1-15th you will get a free LEGO DC Super Hero Girls Krypto Saves the Day with any LEGO DC Super Hero Girls purchase. You can find all the sets under the LEGO DC Super Hero Girls section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ FREE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE POLYBAG: To celebrate the release of The LEGO Batman Movie, LEGO is offering a free exclusive LEGO Batman Movie Disco and Clown Batman polybag with purchases of $75 or more from February 10-28th. This is going to be an excellent way to add two exclusive Batman suits to the collection! Please note that this promotion is not limited to LEGO Batman Movie sets, but is valid on all purchases. However if you want to check them out, the sets related to the movie can all be found under The LEGO Batman Movie section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ FREE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE POSTER COLLECTION: During the entire month, LEGO will be offering a unique poster each week related to The LEGO Batman Movie; Harley Quinn – February 1-5, Batman – February 6-12, Batgirl – February 13-19, and Robin – February 20-26. If you are planning to place a larger order, it might be worth breaking it up to chunks, so you can collect the posters through several smaller purchases (just keep in mind to meet the minimum for free shipping on each order).
➡ LEGO BATMAN MOVIE MERCHANDISE: Just like with The LEGO Movie, we will see a whole range of LEGO Batman Movie merchandise; watches, bedding, lunch boxes, posters, T-shirts, costumes, McDonald’s Happy Meal toys, and more. I’m not going to get into these in detail, but you should be able to find them at various retailers.
➡ LEGO BRICKHEADZ COLLECTION AVAILABLE: LEGO VIP members will get early access to the new LEGO BrickHeadz sets starting on February 15th (general release will be in March). This is a new theme, featuring blocky brick-built LEGO Super Hero characters, similar to the Mega Bloks/Mega Construx Kubros line. We talked about them previously here: LEGO BrickHeadz Collection Coming!
➡ LEGO VALENTINE’S DAY SET: While this is not a new release, the #40236 LEGO Romantic Valentine Picnic set is still available, and it is an excellent little set (only $9.99!) with a whole collection of really sweet pieces. It is available under the seasonal items section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2017 LEGO SETS AT THE TOY FAIRS: Traditionally there are three toy fairs LEGO fans pay attention to every year. The London Toy Fair at the end of January, the Nuremberg (German) Toy Fair at the beginning of February, and the New York Toy Fair at the end of February. The London Toy Fair came and went this year with no LEGO related news, as they don’t allow taking pictures, and this year they didn’t even invite the press. The German Toy Fair is taking place right now (February 1-6), so lots of news should be coming out this week, and they also allow pictures. The New York Toy Fair is going to be towards the middle of the month (February 18-21), where the same new LEGO sets are shown as at the German Toy Fair, and sometimes a few extra sets also get revealed. It’s worth paying attention to these events, as you get an idea what to budget for throughout the year.
There are no new large set released this month, but this is a good thing, as it allows us to catch up on the January releases. The #10255 LEGO Creator Assembly Square is a beauty, and it is the largest set released so far this year. And of course there are all The LEGO Batman Movie, LEGO City, LEGO Creator, LEGO Ninjago, LEGO Nexo Knights, LEGO Friends, LEGO Super Hero Girls, LEGO Disney Moana, LEGO Architecture, and LEGO Juniors sets. There is so much to choose from, fitting every interest and budget. I’m particularly impressed by the number of really good small sets available in pretty much every theme. You don’t have to spend a fortune to get a set with great play-features, and very useful pieces. We talked about some of these small sets here: Awesome 2017 LEGO Sets under $10!
