November 2020 – New LEGO Sets & Promotions

November is the beginning of the Christmas shopping season leading up to Thanksgiving and the weekend of Black Friday. According to the November LEGO Store Calendar, LEGO is offering a couple of new freebies, and we should be getting even more promotional offers later in the month. Also, several new sets just became available, so we will talk about those as well.

FREE LEGO HIDDEN SIDE SET: This promotion started at the end of last month and expires today, November 1st. You get a free #30464 LEGO Hidden Side El Fuego’s Stunt Cannon with purchases of $35 or more. This offer is valid on all items at official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop.

FREE LEGO STAR WARS KEYCHAIN: From today until November 8th, you get a free #5006363 LEGO Han Solo Carbonite Metal Keychain with LEGO Star Wars purchases of $100 or more. This offer is valid at official LEGO stores and the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.

LEGO BLACK FRIDAY PROMOTIONS: The details of the Black Friday promotions (November 27-30) are not yet known, but if they are like in previous years, we should be getting freebies and discounts. We will talk about this event more when information becomes available. One of the promotional items is likely going to be the really nice #40410 LEGO Seasonal Charles Dickens Tribute set pictured below.

LEGO SESAME STREET SET NOW AVAILABLE: The #21324 LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street set is now available! We talked about this set in detail in the press-release (see: LEGO Ideas Sesame Street Coming Soon!) It features Bert and Ernie’s apartment, Elmo’s bedroom and Bert’s rooftop bird house, and is packed with authentic details and accessories to delight fans. To complete the iconic street corner scene, there is Hooper’s Store, Big Bird’s nest, Oscar the Grouch’s trashcan, and much more. Characters include Elmo, Cookie Monster, Bert, Ernie, Oscar the Grouch, and Big Bird. Comes with 1,367 pieces. Price: $119.99. Available at the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.

There are also a number of other really nice holiday items, like the #40426 LEGO Christmas Wreath 2-in-1 set, a couple of small Christmas Ornament sets you can hang on your Christmas tree, and the #40425 LEGO BrickHeadz Nutcracker. You can find them all at the seasonal section of the Online LEGO Shop.

    Just ordered the 123 sesame street set( childhood memory that’s deep in my heart). Can’t wait to build it😃. So, here’s my dilemma, the MOs Eisley Cantina is still out of stock and my problem is do I wait till it come in stock to order it or start looking at something else for my Christmas shopping. Because if I wait too long the other stuff( I like to call plan B )might not be there. So how long do you think I should wait and just forget about the MOs Eisley Cantina set and go for my Plan B? I’m thinking I’ll give it a week this November. Any thoughts?

    • Thita (admin) November 1, 2020, 5:58 PM

      That’s a tough one. Stock is still low in North America because of the factory closure in Mexico. I don’t see this situation getting any better before Christmas. The large sets do come back in stock from time to time, but only for very brief periods. Unless you’re willing to check every day, and luck out, I wouldn’t count on it. Personally, I would just go with Plan B for now, and keep the Cantina purchase until next year. But that’s just my opinion. 🙂

    I got sesame street too! 😀

  • Martin November 1, 2020, 12:57 PM

    The Batwing looks incredible. Sleek, sophisticated, and very black.

  • Random AFOL November 1, 2020, 1:22 PM

    Although Sesame Street is not perfect, I like the minifigs, the exclusive pieces, and the colors. I suspect they may add a second set later based on those technic bricks with holes. Or maybe that’s just a design?

    • Håkan November 1, 2020, 9:29 PM

      Yeah, that might be some ulterior motive for the license. Fans have complained about the lack of characters such as Grover and Count Van Count…

  • ninelives November 1, 2020, 1:57 PM

    The Christmas set looks good. I hope the threshold is not too high to get it.

  • Master Builder November 1, 2020, 6:41 PM

    Sesame Street and the Winter Village set for me. Other than that, I’m waiting for the new Modular. I’m curious if they are going to use the new road plate system or use a regular baseplate.

  • Legostuff14 November 1, 2020, 8:03 PM

    Thanks, Thita (admin) for the advice. I’ll give it a week and if it’s still not available I’ll go to plan B. I also consider the fact that i already know what I’m getting for Christmas that’s already here and it’s in hiding ( Diagon Alley set) but, can’t build until Christmas. So, you win some and sometimes you lose some. I feel I have already won. Lol!🤔. With any Lego set you can’t go wrong.

    • Thita (admin) November 2, 2020, 1:59 PM

      Yes, that’s very true. Even a bad LEGO set can be used for parts. I think you will like Diagon Alley. It’s a great set. 🙂

  • Legostuff14 November 1, 2020, 10:00 PM

    This is something I mentioned a few days ago, Lego can fix ” the not enough sesame street characters” by having them in a mini figure blind bag series. It would make sense, because Lego was just asking us what themes on minifigures they should make for the next series during the next year or so.

    • Håkan November 2, 2020, 8:29 AM

      Yeah, another suggestion I’ve seen. Also it’s been suggested it could include some non-US-characters from international co-productions.

      Possibly it’s of limited appeal outside the USA, though.

      • Thita (admin) November 2, 2020, 2:01 PM

        Hm… that’s interesting. I wonder which characters that would be.

    • Thita (admin) November 2, 2020, 2:00 PM

      It’s very likely this is what’s going to happen. They did the same with The Simpsons; two sets, plus collectible minifigs.

  • legotom November 2, 2020, 11:11 AM

    Is there any news on the 2021 sets yet? Like what is the next modular? Star Wars sets, Super Heroes, Ninjago, etc.?

    • yoladiel November 2, 2020, 11:43 AM

      Some of them are on instagram. Look for legoleaks2011. The Ninjago, City, and some of the Super Heroes sets already leaked.

      • Håkan November 2, 2020, 2:06 PM

        Hmm, I’m curious about the “Spider-Man hideout”, although from what I remember in the comics, his hideout generally was some small, shabby New York apartment… Just like many of the creators probably lived in during the 70’s and 80’s…

    • Thita (admin) November 2, 2020, 2:02 PM

      The next Modular is not yet known. Some of the other sets started circulating. Usually just set names and numbers, and sometimes pictures. I haven’t seen anything particularly outstanding yet.
