November 2019 – New LEGO Sets & Promotions

Hope you all had a great Halloween! With the beginning of November, we are now officially in the holiday season. This is a great time of the year for both solo projects and for building together with friends and family. And of course, it’s also the beginning of the holiday shopping season, which means retailers offering discounts and other ways to entice holiday shoppers. It’s still a bit too early to know what’s coming from all retailers, but LEGO already released the LEGO Store Calendar for November, so at least we can see what to expect from them. In addition, there are also some new sets available, so let’s take a look at everything happening this month!

FREE LEGO REINDEER: November 4-17 you will get a free #40434 LEGO Reindeer with purchases of $35 or more. This is a cute little brick-built holiday set that could be used as a Christmas decoration. It is valid on all purchases at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.

FREE LEGO CHRISTMAS TREE: Towards the end of the month (November 29-December 2) there is a larger freebie with purchases of $120 or more. The #40338 LEGO Christmas Tree features a decorated Christmas tree on a platform, surrounded by a tiny LEGO train and some gift boxes. This offer is also valid on all purchases at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.

LEGO BLACK FRIDAY EVENT: There will be sales and deals after Thanksgiving on Black Friday weekend (November 29-December 2), but details are not yet known. Of course, there will be the above-mentioned free LEGO Christmas Tree, but also likely special offers for LEGO VIP members, sets on sale, etc. We will talk about this event more as information gets released.

LEGO HOLIDAY GIFT SHOP: The online LEGO Holiday Gift Shop is now open. This is a special section of the Online LEGO Shop, which helps guide those who are purchasing gift items. Experienced LEGO fans may not need this section, but those who are not as familiar with current LEGO sets and themes, could greatly benefit from it. It has a section for the hottest gifts and exclusives like the #71044 LEGO Disney Train and Station, the #21319 LEGO Ideas Central Perk set, the #21318 LEGO Ideas Tree House, the #10267 LEGO Creator Gingerbread House, and more. The LEGO Holiday Gift Shop also has quick-links to current LEGO promotions, the sales page, and stocking stuffers (popular sets under $20). Again, this is a great page to direct those who would like to shop for Christmas but need a little help with making a selection.

LEGO IDEAS DINOSAUR FOSSILS: The #21320 LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils set is now available. We talked about this set in detail previously (see: LEGO Ides Dinosaur Fossil Set Coming!) Basically, the set features buildable, posable, highly detailed 1:32 scale models of Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops, and Pteranodon skeletons. They each come with a display stand to make them look like museum exhibits. The set also includes two minifigs: a skeleton and a paleontologist. The price is $59.99. This set should be very popular with kids and parents alike. It is available at official LEGO stores and the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.

RECENTLY RELEASED EXCLUSIVE SETS: Although there are no big sets released this month, I just wanted to make sure you are aware of all the large sets that were released in the past couple of months you may consider for the holidays. The #75252 LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series Imperial Star Destroyer is the largest LEGO Star Wars set to date. Two very impressive large LEGO Technic sets were released last month; the #42110 LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender, and the #42100 LEGO Technic Liebherr R 9800 Excavator. The #71044 LEGO Disney Train and Station comes with a fully motorized train. The highly popular #21319 LEGO Ideas Central Perk set is finally back in stock. The #10269 LEGO Creator Expert Harley-Davidson Fat Boy would make a gorgeous gift for Harley fans. The #21318 LEGO Ideas Treehouse looks beautiful on display, and can be changed to fall colors to match the season. The #75936 LEGO Jurassic Park: T. Rex Rampage is another great set for fans of dinosaurs. The #10265 LEGO Creator Ford Mustang is another great set in the LEGO Creator vehicles line, and not as challenging as the LEGO Technic sets. You can find them all at the New tab of the Online LEGO Shop. Also, check the Sale section of the Online LEGO Shop for discounted sets.

LEGO HOLIDAY SETS: The LEGO Winter Village set for this year is the #10267 LEGO Creator Gingerbread House, but there are other holiday sets as well. The #10254 LEGO Creator Winter Holiday Train, and the #10263 LEGO Winter Village Fire Station from previous years are still available. And we already talked about the four LEGO Advent Calendars (in the LEGO City, LEGO Friends, LEGO Star Wars, and LEGO Harry Potter categories). If you like LEGO BrickHeadz, you can also take a look at the LEGO BrickHeadz category for a cute Thanksgiving Turkey, Scarecrow, and Mr. and Mrs. Claus. You can find them all at the Seasonal Items section of the Online LEGO Shop.

What do you think? Are you planning to work on any new LEGO projects this month? Anything special for the holidays? And what’s on your Christmas wish-list? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below!

    I like the dinosaur fossils. It’s such a unique set. Something I would have loved as a child.

  • Legostuff14 November 1, 2019, 11:54 AM

    I did a little Amazon shopping. I ordered Emmet’s dream house /rescue rocket for half price. Yes, I did finally see the movie Lego Movie 2. I loved it. So, I ordered that as well. It’s funny how at first you tell yourself ” I’m not going to buy these sets ” and then you break down a do. Same with the city space theme. It has interest me enough that it’s on my Christmas list. Lol!

    • Icepacklady November 1, 2019, 12:19 PM

      I ordered Emmet’s dream house/rescue rocket for half price too. It should be waiting for me when I get home today!
      My daughter still has a few Friends sets from the August release that she wants for Christmas so those are on our list. I’ve been trying to keep my own buying small and sticking to PAB since I haven’t even built a couple sets I picked up this summer yet.

  • Hayato November 1, 2019, 12:43 PM

    Gingerbread house and dinoaurs for us. I’m happy that we can get two great sets the kids want for a reasonable price.

  • The Other Mark November 1, 2019, 1:40 PM

    I’m surprised the Central Perk set is so popular. I was expecting it to have similar popularity as the Big Bang Theory set. I do think it looks much better, but still. It’s based on an old TV show. I wonder who’s buying it all.

    • LEGOJeff November 1, 2019, 4:53 PM

      The TV show is still very popular. I think people are buying them as gifts and for parts. It has far better design that the BBT set.

    • admin November 3, 2019, 11:23 AM

      Yes, it’s a very popular set. 🙂

  • brickhead November 1, 2019, 2:04 PM

    Aren’t we also supposed to get a mini gingerbread house? Is that a freebie, or a set for purchase. And when is it available?

    • admin November 3, 2019, 11:24 AM

      Yes, I have seen a leaked image of that set. My guess it’s going to be a freebie in December.

  • LEGOJeff November 1, 2019, 4:52 PM

    I think I will also stick with the Gingerbread House and the Dinosaur Fossils. I’m not fully happy with the dinosaurs, but I thik I can make the changes I want.

  • SergeiS November 1, 2019, 10:02 PM

    Did you guys see that wooden minifig for like $120? What do you guys think?

    • Martin November 2, 2019, 4:19 PM

      Not bad but not for me. I have seen much better ones made by afols with articulated limbs. And this one is so expensive!

    • admin November 3, 2019, 11:24 AM

      Sergei, there is an article posted about the wooden minifig this morning. We can discuss it in more detail at the comments there. I think it’s cute, but very expensive.

  • Emperor P. November 2, 2019, 12:20 PM

    Jang posted a review on the Dinosaurs set this morning. Here is the link for those who’re interested: https://youtu.be/86phcCzNn7Y

    • Martin November 2, 2019, 4:18 PM

      Thanks. This is helpful.

  • Legostuff14 November 2, 2019, 10:11 PM

    So, when does lego start let us know what sets are retiring this year? I saw on the Lego. Com that various sets are on sale but, some of them are out of stock.

  • Legostuff14 November 3, 2019, 11:18 AM

    I guess there’s no answer to my question?

    • admin November 3, 2019, 11:39 AM

      Sorry for the delay, I was out of town yesterday. Usually LEGO puts things on final clearance after Christmas, although sometimes when then want to boost sales they may start dumping sets into the clearance section even before Christmas. There is usually an official retiring soon list right after Christmas, but if I remember correctly, last year they skipped making an announcement. There is, however, an unofficial list circulating already of sets retiring this year. Please take this with a grain of salt.

    I didn’t know you were out of town. My comment should have been clarified a little better. Asked around and know one had an answer to my question. Personally I like to get out of town myself. LOL. Sometimes you just can’t breathe when the holiday Rush start so soon.😨

    • admin November 3, 2019, 2:26 PM

      I know the feeling! The Holidays can be so hectic! BTW, I’m usually out of town on Saturdays. I take friends or kids from the dojo to the beach from May to the end of October (or sometimes I go by myself). And from November to the end of April/early May I volunteer with Habitat for Humanity to build a houses.

      I might write up a full article about retiring sets, but at this point the list is still iffy, so I’m not sure if it’s worth it. But I hope you find the list useful. 🙂

  • Legostuff14 November 3, 2019, 5:11 PM

    Wow! That is so cool that you volunteer for Habitat for Humanity and help build houses. It make building a Lego set almost a moot point. Lol! I live in Sacramento California and I’m just counting my blessings that my house was not lost in the horrible fires in LA and around. It almost makes you feel shopping for Christmas almost Petty because there’s more important things to worry about. I used to volunteer to help the homeless but it got too personal for me because I get to attached to the homeless person. If something happens to them it would make me very depressed for the loss or things gotten worse for that individual. I did it for about 15 to 16 years.

    • admin November 3, 2019, 5:16 PM

      I know what you mean. I used to volunteer in other ways, but as you said, it’s easy to get too involved with the people you’re helping, which can effect your personal life and well-being. I have great respect for those who can do it. For me, it works better to help in other ways, like using my hands to build houses. It’s a great activity for the colder months… cold in Florida means below 70. 😀
