LEGO Announces The 2020 Modular – 10270 Bookshop

Every year in early December LEGO announced the new entry to the modular building line. Today we have the official details of the 2020 modular.

Introducing 10270 Bookshop

10270_prod

This set features 2504 parts and 5 minifigures. The bookstore is a return to the split modular with the build containing two distinct buildings – there is the bookstore as well as a really cute apartment.

Both builds look fantastic and I think they are a good return to something more grounded after the garage and diner of previous years.

LEGO was kind enough to send me a copy of this set to review but it only arrived late today. I’ll have a detailed review for you before this set is released for sale on January 1st 2020. No Australian price as yet. Australian RRP is $249.99.

In the meantime check out the full image gallery and press release below.

LEGO’s Marvellous Mustang

I have never been a car person. My technical knowledge doesn’t extend much beyond “they’ve got wheels and a motor”. Having said that, there are a few cars that have broken through my indifference. The cars that have become popular culture icons in their own right. One such car is the Ford Mustang. When the Creator Expert Ford Mustang was first leaked I knew I’d be getting one.

The set features an impressive 1471 pieces with a build split over 6 sections.

Building a legend

I’m not going to go in to the construction process step by step in a lot of detail, because I feel that a lot of the joy from a Creator Expert set comes from the build itself.

Here Are Amazon’s Black Friday Deals

Amazon Logo 210

Amazon has two separate listings for discount LEGO this black Friday.

First up is the “Up to 25% off selected Technic and Overwatch” page. Overwatch sets haven’t been that heavily discounted before so if those are a theme you want then I’d check that out. The Technic range is quite limited.

Next there is a “Up to 25% off selected LEGO” page. This includes a fairly eclectic mix of sets. There is a reasonably cheap Yoda.

It’s also always worth checking Amazon for other sets as there’s a decent chance they have matched other sales.

LEGO’s Black Friday Sale Is Live And Actually Pretty Good

black-friday-2019-thumb

I wasn’t expecting much from LEGO’s online Black Friday sale but I’m happy to be wrong. There are a range of sets included in the 30% off sale include the Disney Train and Station. Yes that’s right the recently announced set that might not ever make it to general retail is included in the 30% off sale. Get yours here.

The Vestas Wind Turbine is also 30% off.

You can check out the rest of the sale sets here.

Don’t forget that the Batmobile with mini Batmobile is now available too.

You’ll also get the Christmas Tree bonus if you buy today.

On Sale: 20% Off At Target

Target 200x200

Target has extended their previous 20% off City and Friends offer. More importantly they have also expanded this to now cover all LEGO.

Target prices are usually a little bit cheaper than RRP so a flat 20% off offer is worth a look at the very least.

The sale now ends December 11th.

You can find Target’s LEGO range here.

On Sale: Target’s Black Friday Deals

Target 200x200

Target have kicked off their Black Friday sale a little early but I’m not complaining because they have some great offers. Did somebody say cheap Voltron? Target did!

There are 15 sets included in the sale but probably only a few that will get you excited. There’s a cheap modular, cheap Ninjago docks and the aforementioned Voltron. Beyond that the less interesting stuff is mainly Toy Story 4.

Some of the offers are online only so check before rushing to your nearest stores.

These prices are live now and end December 2nd. You can find the range here.

NOTE: Target also has 20% off all other LEGO. I’ll post about that in a separate article.

See the full discounts below.

Exclusive Black Friday Minifigure Not Available Until After Black Friday

I don’t know why but the exclusive Black Friday minifigure that was meant to be available from November 29th to December 2nd is now only going to be available on December 2nd.

black-friday-2019-minifigure-update

This is a bit odd and it creates a tough situation for anybody getting a 1989 Batmobile – do you buy it on release and get the bonus mini Batmobile, or do you hold off until December 2 and hope that the mini Batmobile isn’t sold out so you can try and get both promos? I honestly don’t know what I’d do.
