We got a large number of new LEGO sets in the past couple of months, so September is a bit quieter both in terms of new sets and interesting promotions. This is a good thing, as it allows LEGO fans to catch up on purchasing and building their favorite sets from earlier this year. Having said that, we can still look forward to not one but two exclusive sets with LEGO VIP early access, as well as a couple of promotions. So, let’s take a look. 🙂
➡ FREE LEGO FRIENDS FRIENDSHIP RINGS: September 1-20 you can get a free LEGO Friends Friendships Rings set with LEGO Friends purchases of over $25. This might be a lead-up to LEGO’s new accessory line that should be coming in the near future. There are a large number of new LEGO Friends sets, including the LEGO Friends Go-Kart collection, which we reviewed here: 2018 LEGO Friends Go-Kart Sets Overview. There are also some other new sets worth checking out, like the #41343 LEGO Friends Heartlake City Airplane Tour, the #41344 LEGO Friends Andrea’s Accessory Store, the #41345 LEGO Friends Heartlake City Pet Center, and the #41347 LEGO Friends Heartlake City Resort. You can find the full selection at the LEGO Friends section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO FRIENDS SETS DOUBLE VIP POINTS: Still in the LEGO Friends category, during the entire month of September, you can get Double VIP Points on the #41346 LEGO Friends Friendship Box, and the #41352 LEGO Friends The Big Race Day. The Friendship Box is a particularly interesting set, and different from all previous LEGO Friends releases. You can find both sets at the LEGO Friends section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO HARRY POTTER HOGWARTS CASTLE: The massive #71043 LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle with 6,020 pieces is now available for everyone, not just LEGO VIP members. LEGO did a much better job managing inventory than with previous exclusives – mostly by allowing LEGO fans to place preorders at official LEGO stores, and thus avoiding the shopping frenzy often associated with highly desirable new sets. Hopefully, this is going to become the standard way of handling new releases. We have discussed the LEGO Hogwarts Castle extensively (see: LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle Review), and there are other LEGO Harry Potter and LEGO Fantastic Beasts sets as well that you may want to check out. They are available at the LEGO Harry Potter section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO STAR WARS BETRAYAL AT CLOUD CITY: The #75222 LEGO Star Wars Betrayal at Cloud City set is going to be available for LEGO VIP members on September 13th. You can read the press-release and other information here: LEGO Star Wars Betrayal at Cloud City, and you can find larger pictures and other information at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ 2018 LEGO CREATOR WINTER VILLAGE SET: Although we do not have any details about this set yet, besides a few teaser images from LEGO, it is fairly certain that this is going to be the second set that will be available on September 13th to LEGO VIP members. Below are the teaser images LEGO released so far featuring a Christmas tree, a snowman, a lamppost and a telephone, and an official announcement should be coming soon. Two of the previous LEGO Winter Village sets, the #10254 LEGO Winter Holiday Train from 2016 and the #10259 LEGO Winter Village Station from 2017 are still available at the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO CHRISTMAS ADVENT CALENDARS: LEGO traditionally releases three advent calendar sets for Christmas; one in the LEGO City theme, one in the LEGO Friends theme, and one for LEGO Star Wars fans. The sets are packaged in special boxes with opening windows for each day of December counting down to Christmas. Behind each window there is a small LEGO build, minifig, or accessory that kids can enjoy while also building up the anticipation for Christmas. This year, the three sets are the #60201 LEGO City Advent Calendar, the #41353 LEGO Friends Advent Calendar, and the #75213 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar. All three of them are now available at the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO ARCHITECTURE LAS VEGAS: The long-delayed #21047 LEGO Architecture Las Vegas set is now available. (The original model included the Mandalay Bay Hotel, which was removed and replaced in response to the tragic events in Las Vegas last year). The set features attractions located on and around the Las Vegas Strip, including the Bellagio Hotel, Luxor Hotel, Encore Hotel, Stratosphere Tower, and the Fremont Street Experience. A nice addition to the LEGO Architecture Skyline series, the set is available at the LEGO Architecture section of the Online LEGO Shop.
➡ LEGO KNIGHTMARE BATMAN ACCESSORY SET: The #853744 LEGO DC Super Heroes Knightmare Batman Accessory Set is an interesting little pack with an exclusive Knightmare Batman, two Parademons, some assorted weapons, and pieces to build a 1×1 inch turret. You can find it at the LEGO DC Super Heroes section of the Online LEGO Shop.
And that’s all as far as new sets and promotions this month. Just enough for some fresh excitement, but not too overwhelming. Also, don’t forget about the other great sets that were recently released. This includes the #10262 LEGO Creator James Bond Aston Martin DB5, the #21311 LEGO Ideas Voltron set, the #10261 LEGO Creator Roller Coaster, the #76105 LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition, the #42083 LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron, the new LEGO Jurassic World sets, the new LEGO Unikitty sets, and many new sets under the LEGO BrickHeadz, LEGO City, LEGO Creator, LEGO Disney, LEGO Friends, LEGO Minecraft, LEGO Ninjago, LEGO Star Wars, LEGO DC Super Heroes, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, and LEGO Technic. For a full inventory of new sets, visit the What’s New section of the Online LEGO Shop.
