Possible Christmas Promotions Revealed

A US version of the LEGO store catalogue has revealed some Christmas related promotional sets that will be available later this year.

Brick Friday Offer Now Available Online

image

The LEGO “Brick Friday” offer for Australian shoppers is now available. Unfortunately the offer for us is lacking compared to some other regions around the world.

While others get discounts and bonuses the Australian Brick Friday offer is just 40107 Winter Skating Scene when spending over $100.

Sorry for the delay in posting this, we lost power in the storm that hit Brisbane on Thursday.

VIPs Get Early Access To Second Christmas Bonus Set

If you head over to the Australian online LEGO store you may notice a new offer – VIPs are being given access to the second of the Christmas bonus sets a little bit early.

VIP Early Access Ice Skating

It may be worth waiting a little bit though – reports are that this offer has appeared a little bit early, and it will not officially kick off until tomorrow (22nd November 2014).

When the offer is live the set should appear in your cart, so it may be worth checking regularly over the next day or so. As this is a VIP offer you will need to be logged in with your VIP account to access the deal.

The offer should become available to all shoppers soon.

Thanks to Josh for sending the information about the offer.

10245 Box

Believe it or not, there are only 137 days until Christmas. With the holidays fast approaching LEGO has taken the time to officially unveil the latest set in their Christmas line-up.

This year’s set is the wonderfully designed 10245 Santa’s Workshop. Some fans may find that this set doesn’t fit in with the winter village sets from previous years, but we think it’s a great addition to the range.

LEGO Club – Christmas Bonus!

Bricking Around loves bringing readers details of the latest LEGO Club magazines, and today we found a special edition in the Bricking Around mailbox. LEGO Australia has given all Club Magazine subscribers a special Christmas gift – 30182 Santa.

LEGO Club Magazine Christmas 2014

There was no full magazine but the package also included the following treats:

  • A fun Christmas mini-comic, with a huge cast of LEGO characters.
  • A 2014 LEGO Catalogue

We will be going through the 2014 catalogue in a separate 2014 preview article coming soon.

At $19.99 for a lifetime subscription the value of the LEGO Club Magazine is often questioned. It’s nice to be rewarded with not only a sneak peak of 2014′s sets, but also an adorable brick-built Santa.
