2021 LEGO Sets with Double VIP Points & More!

We already talked about all the new LEGO sets that were released at the beginning of the year as well as the free-with-purchase sets (see: January 2021 – New LEGO Sets & Promotions), but there are a couple of other promotional offers and opportunities we haven’t mentioned yet.

First of all, you can get Double VIP Points on two of the newly released sets during the entire month. The first one is the #60292 LEGO City Town Center. We talked about this set in detail in LEGO City Road Plates System Review – Part 4, but to recap, it’s one of the five 2021 LEGO City sets that feature the new modular road plate system. And it also includes a pizzeria, car wash, dojo, park, recycling station, a couple of vehicles, a motorcycle, a bicycle, plus eight minifigs, a baby, and a new guide dog. It’s a good set for starting or adding to a city layout. And as I mentioned, you will earn Double VIP Points if you purchase it this month. The price is $99.99, and it’s available at the LEGO City section of the Online LEGO Shop.

The other set that will earn you Double VIP Points this month is the #71737 LEGO Ninjago X-1 Ninja Charger. This is one of the new LEGO Ninjago Legacy sets – a special collection that features upgraded and improved older sets from earlier seasons of the TV series. The X-1 Ninja Charger is from Season 3, and it features a 2-in-1 vehicle with spring-loaded shooters and a hidden motorcycle that can be fired out at the press of a button. The five minifigs are Kai, Jay, and Cole, and a couple of Nindroid warriors. The original #70727 LEGO Ninjago X-1 Ninja Charger was released back in 2014 and was a very popular set. The new version appears more sleek, but it has most of the same functions. If you missed out on the original, or if you want to own both, the Double VIP Points period is a good time to get the new version. The price is $49.99, and it’s available at the LEGO Ninjago section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Remember that there are also a couple of freebies this month. You can get a free #40448 LEGO Ideas Vintage Car with purchases of $85 or more during the entire month (or while supplies last). This was originally a fan-designed model that won a contest on LEGO Ideas.

The second freebie is the #30628 LEGO Harry Potter The Book of Monsters that you can get with LEGO Harry Potter purchases of $75 or more during the entire month at the LEGO Harry Potter section of the Online LEGO Shop.

I also encourage you to keep an eye on the clearance section of the Online LEGO Shop. LEGO has been clearing out older sets at a 20-50% discount, and you might find something that you like. What’s available at the clearance section changes frequently, so it’s a good idea to check at least a couple of times a month. To see the currently available discounted sets, visit the sales section of the Online LEGO Shop.

And of course, there are tons of new sets that were just released. If you want to go through the full list, visit January 2021 – New LEGO Sets & Promotions discussion we had last week, or go directly to the new sets section of the Online LEGO Shop.

What do you think? Did you get any of the 2021 sets yet? And are you planning to take advantage of any of the above-mentioned promotions? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below!

    The Book of Monsters sold out in the UK within a day! The vintage car within a week. Glad I placed my order just after midnight. 🙂

    • Thita (admin) January 10, 2021, 9:35 PM

      Yeah, both of those are super popular. Coupled with the fact that everyone is placing orders for the new sets, the promos ran out quickly. I’m glad you were able to get the vintage car! I love the colors! 😀

    Thank you. I’m tempted to get the city set. It’s expensive, but it has a lot of parts I want.

    • Thita (admin) January 10, 2021, 9:36 PM

      Yeah, it’s a good parts-pack for City building. and even the buildings themselves are good starters.

    I like the original Ninjag Charger a little better. It has better shaping around the back wheels. But the new one is fine too.

    My self control is ruining my Lego addiction. Again, I was at a store that sells some of the new sets and just walk away from it. ( without temptation). I think I I’ve reached a plateau in my collecting. Does this happen? I don’t think I’ll stop collecting but, maybe just be a bit more selective than usual or at least until something more exciting comes along that would interest me more. I am waiting for the blacksmith shop to come out. So, there’s that.

      Cue Laura Branigan:

      I live among the figures of the bricks
      I cannot still resist the clutching clicks.
      Maintaining it all thoroughly, I’m willing to believe it
      That I’ll thoroughly get done.
      I’m all set, I’m living in the furthest of my dream
      I’m spending hours with a ninja team
      I must believe in something, so I’ll make myself believe it
      That this team will never go

      Oh oh oh…

      You take my self, you take my self control…

    • Thita (admin) January 10, 2021, 9:39 PM

      It happens to me too. There are many sets I like a lot, but I’m perfectly satisfied just looking at pictures and not owning them. They just don’t match my displays, or don’t have the room for them. Other sets I purchase on the day they come out. Some because I like them as they are, others because I like the parts or I want to mod them to something else. Being selective is part of the hobby… unless you’re a millionaire with unlimited space. 😀

    I like it and ditto.😁. It comes and goes, this I know . It tests me from time to time , but, this to shall pass because my temptation will rise and my money will soon belong to Lego once again. I can only fight it for so long because weakness is a human trait and we all will soon to give in to this human fate. 😎.

      While looking up the lyrics, I see that the song’s actually a cover of a Raf (Raffaele Riefoli) italodisco hit.

  • Undercover Afol January 10, 2021, 5:13 PM

    I like the new city sets, but they are so expensive. I might just get a set of roadplates.

  • Legostuff14 January 10, 2021, 6:38 PM

    I was just having fun and decided to come up with my own lyrics or maybe a poem. 😊.

    • Håkan January 10, 2021, 8:52 PM

      Yeah, words are nice. I like them.

    Hey! I know this is kinda random, but I used to frequent this site a lot several years ago. I went by The Yellow Ninja and also Blaize Garmadon sometimes. I just recently heard about the passing of Kirby Morrow (which broke my heart, honestly- Ninjago was my entire childhood and Cole was my comfort character) and decided to see if this place was still around.

    I was eleven when this show started- I turn 21 this year and I’m definitely considering picking Ninjago back up again because of quarantine. It really did bring me a lot of happiness, and I remember having a lot of fun talking to people here. Just wanted to let you know that. Again, I’m very much sorry for the randomness of this comment as I know it had nothing to do with the content of the blogpost itself, but I just wanted to thank you for all of the great memories!

    • Thita (admin) January 13, 2021, 12:28 PM

      Oh, so nice to have you over! I regularly hear from early Ninjago fans like yourself, randomly popping in just like you did. I’m glad to hear that you’re well and thinking about getting into Ninjago again. Feel free to stop by at any time! We don’t mind the randomness at all! 😀
