Free Iconic Christmas Set Now Available From LEGO

LEGO have a new Christmas promotion listed on their website but despite what the headline says I think they are being a bit generous with the term Iconic.

Spend over $100 and you’ll receive a free 5004934 Iconic Christmas Set

Iconic Christmas Set 2017 5004934

The set features two minifigures and a selection of small builds. The box itself also forms part of the completed model. The fact that the cardboard box is a big part of this makes it a little less iconic than the name suggests.

The site is also promoting a Double VIP period from December 15th – 17th but any orders placed on the 15th or later almost certainly won’t make it by Christmas. 

Free LEGO Nutcracker Now Available From LEGO Online

The Australian online LEGO store has been updated with a new freebie.

Spend over $120 and you will receive a free LEGO Nutcracker set (40254)

2017 Christmas Free Nutcracker

This is advertised as a Brick Friday/Cyber Monday bonus, so it may only be running until Monday night. I suggest that if you are planning to get an order in you do so sooner rather than later.

The set looks great and is a perfect Christmas bonus.

New Christmas Offer From LEGO Online

The LEGO online store has updated with a new Christmas offer.

Spend $120 or more and receive a free 24-in-1 LEGO Christmas Build Up (40253) set.

2017 Christmas Buildup Bonus

For those of you not familiar with the Christmas Build Up sets, it is a collection of parts that allows you to build 24 different Christmas themed models. You can’t build all of them at once unfortunately.

Some other news that might be of interest regarding the store:

21312 Women of NASA is now available. While some people have complained about the price (including me) I know there are some people keen to pick this up.

If you still haven’t been able to pick up a Apollo Saturn V set then you may be interested to know that the set is currently available for backorder, with an estimate ship date of December 8th. That ship date should get to you by Christmas.

Double VIP Promotion Now Live

LEGO usually have some sort of double VIP promotion during October and sure if enough we now have not only Double VIP Points but a nice little VIP bonus set too.

VIP Exclusive Set

The 40178 VIP Set will be added to your cart with orders over $200, assuming that you are a VIP customer.

As for the double VIP point offer, this equates to 2 points for every $1.50 spent.

The website has not yet been updated with the details of this offer but once I am able to confirm end dates I’ll update this article. Update: Here are the official details of the promotions.

Double VIP Points runs October 10 – 15.

LEGO Looking For Giveaway Suggestions

sophia-cu-with-chat

Everybody knows that LEGO regularly have giveaways on their online store. These bonuses help tempt people to buy at RRP from the official online store. There have been some great giveaways in the past, and there have been some less great ones too.

Now LEGO is directly reaching out to the adult LEGO fan community for suggestions on future giveaways. They have asked partners like this site to find out what people want in a giveaway. I’ll collect your suggestions and then pass on the top 5. Enter your suggestion in the form below and then I will provide a poll to help finalise the top 5.

I’ll be taking suggestions until October 24th, and then from then until October 30th I will feature a poll of your suggestions.

Your suggestion can be anything that LEGO might produce – that mean no new IP and no suggestions that violate LEGO’s rules (drugs, nudity, war etc). More detail is available at the end of the article if you are still unsure.

The main sale offering is buy one get one half price across Duplo, City, Friends, Technic, Creator and LEGO Batman Movie. You will be able to mix and match across those themes.

May Issue of K-Zone Magazine Features Free LEGO U-Wing

The May issue of kids magazine K-Zone is out now and like some previous issue this one comes with a bonus polybag. The 30496 U-Wing set is a scaled down version of the 75155 set from Rogue One.

Kzone May 2017 Free U-wing

At 55 pieces this is a great little build. The magazine itself may not be of much interest to the AFOL community but for around $6 it’s worth getting just for the LEGO.

The magazine is available from Coles, Woolworths and Newsagents.

Thanks to Aidan for reminding me this was out.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Toys R Us [Plus Batman Bonus]

Toys R US Logo 200px

As Easter approaches we have even more sales coming out.

This offer from Toys R Us features a fairly wide variety of sets on sale. The range of $29.99 sets down to just $19.99 are fairly tempting.

The sale kicks off today (April 5th) and runs for two weeks (through to April 18th 2017). You can view the catalogue for yourself here, or as always with selected sets sales you can see a list below.

They are also offering a bonus polybag 30523 The Joker Battle Training with purchases over $50. Unfortunately their LEGO Batman Movie sets are barely on sale (about a 10% discount on some). Unless you really, really want that particular polybag I would suggest going to Myer and getting 20% off and their bonus polybag.

On Sale: Various Myer Offers – 30% Off Rogue One Sets, 20% Off Others, Plus Batman Bonus

Myer have a new catalogue starting today and for the most part it’s pretty disappointing, compared to their recent 25% off sale. Despite the underwhelming catalogue, there is plenty going on with Myer.

30% Off Rogue One

Myer April 04 2017 30pc Off Rogue One

First up is the best offer: 30% off Rogue One toys, including the LEGO sets from the film. I’m sure there are plenty of you yet to pick up some of these sets and I doubt you’ll see them much cheaper.

You can view the LEGO Star Wars range online here. The Rogue One sets should be 30% off, and the rest are 20% off, which brings me to the next deal;

20% Off LEGO

While Rogue One sets are 30% off, it seems the rest are 20% off. I’m not sure at this stage why or when it ends. I’ll check for updates. The 20% off runs until April 9th. Unfortunately this seems to exclude the sets in the on-going $15 off/$75 offer which is Friends, City and Duplo sets. You can view the full range here.

20% + 10% + 5% At Myer eBay store (31.5% Off)

This one gets a bit confusing. The sets that are on-sale for 20% off are also 20% off at the Myer eBay store. Myer’s eBay store is also offering 10% off purchases. You can also get an additional 5% off with the code CAU5.

If my math is correct that works out to be a discount of 31.59% off. That’s not bad.

The 10% bonus offer ends April 9th and is applied automatically in your cart. Still not sure when the 20% off ends. The 20% off also ends April 9th. Note that the 20% off excludes City, Friends and Duplo too.

View the Myer eBay range here.

Also if you buy on eBay you won’t get the Batman bonus offer…

Batman Bonus

Myer April 04 2017 Bonus Mini Batwing

Finally there is a bonus for LEGO Batman Movie fans… Spend $60 or more on LEGO Batman, DC Superheroes, Marvel Superheroes or Star Wars and receive a free Mini Batwing set.

 

Thanks to Alyssa and Ebrahim for making sure I didn’t miss the catalogue sale.

Batman LEGO Dimensions Pre-Order Offer From EB Games

Unfortunately the LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack for LEGO Dimensions has suffered the same fate as the film itself, with release being delayed until March 30th.

To ease the pain slightly EB Games are offering a deal for anybody that pre-orders before release. If you pre-order the LEGO Batman Movie story pack you will receive the Excalibur Batman Fun Pack for free.

LEGO Dimensions Batman Preorder Bonus EB

The EB price for the story pack is $79.99 and their price on the Fun Pack is $24.99.  For the sake of comparison the previously released Story Packs are currently $69 at Big W, while fun packs are $22. Those prices make the EB offer look pretty good.

Thanks to Wade for sending this through.
