Bricking Around Christmas Giveaway

Christmas Giveaway 2016

Merry Christmas Bricking Around readers!

To celebrate the festive season I have decided to give away a few items to lucky fans. There are two polybags I have lying around as well as a small set that I picked up on sale.

There are three prizes on offer: 31042 Super Soarer, 30278 Poe’s X-Wing Fighter and 30372 Robin’s Mini Fortrex. Three lucky winners will each receive one item.

To make sure you get plenty of chance to enter (but also get your prize before Christmas) this competition will be running until November 30th.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Big W

BigW 200x200

The pre-Christmas rush continues to heat up with another catalogue full of discounted LEGO.

The latest offering from Big W is a range of selected sets on sale. Big W prices are usually a bit lower than RRP so the final price on some of the featured sets is quite good.

The sale kicks off today (October 27th) and runs until November 9th 2016. You can check out the catalogue for yourself here or see the list of included sets below.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Toys R Us

Toys R Us are helping out those who haven’t done their LEGO Christmas shopping yet with a catalogue full of discounted sets.

This is a selected set sale but there are over 40 sets included across a range of themes. Hopefully there will be something in there for everybody.

The sale kicked off today (October 26th) and runs until November 15th 2016.

You can check out the catalogue for yourself here, or as always view a list of included sets below.

Free Christmas Gift From LEGO Online

If you needed further evidence of the rapid approach of Christmas then this offer from LEGO should do the trick. It’s not even November yet and LEGO are already offering Christmas bonuses.

From 23rd October 2016 until 20th November 2016 you will receive a free 40222 24-in-1 Christmas Builds set with orders over $120. The threshold is a little higher than some previous offers but with free shipping still set at $200 I imagine most people would be aiming for that anyway.

The 40222 24-in-1 set features parts to make 24 different Christmas inspired mini builds. It’s a great looking set and the fact that it is free is even better.

Don’t forget that the Double VIP points offer is still running until October 31st.

I’ve added some more pictures of the free set below.

10254 Winter Holiday Train Announced

Christmas may still be over 100 days away but LEGO have decided that August is the perfect time to announce their latest Christmas set. Introducing 10254 Winter Holiday Train.

10254 Winter Holiday Train 01

Rather than releasing another building LEGO have taken inspiration from 10173 Holiday Train and gone with a festive vehicle this year.

The set features 734 pieces including enough track to make a complete circle – perhaps around the base of your Christmas tree. While not included the set can be upgraded with Power Functions to have a fully operating train.

There are also 5 minifigures included; 3 adults and 2 children.

The Australian product page isn’t live yet but reports are that the Australian RRP will be $149.99. Expect a VIP release in mid-September.

Read on for the full press release, designer video and gallery below.
