Today is 1st July and three great promotions have started today included new products available to buy:
The lastest LEGO minifigure series of the German football team, made to celebrate the European Championship, have been released in the UK! They were initially only going to be available in Germany, Austria and Switzerland but yesterday they were found in LEGO stores across the UK.
I visited my local LEGO Store at Leeds this morning and picked up the last five minifigures left. Each store was only given five boxes of sixty to sell. However, they are for sale on the online LEGO shop priced at £2.49 each with a limit of 16 per household.
Order soon because I would expect them to sell out fast!
The annual LEGO Star Wars May 4th promotions have started today and will last until May 7th.
Here is all thats on offer:
I like the poster because it completes the collection of posters from episodes I - VI, available last year, but the 'exclusive' Stormtrooper minifigure is a disappointment of a free gift compared to previous years but still worth picking up if there are any Star Wars sets you are after.
Today is 1st of March and LEGO has released new products along with some awesome promotions in LEGO brand stores and online at LEGO shop@home!
New themes and products available from today are:
There are three great promotions as well:
It looks like a good month for new set releases and promotions!
Brick 2015 took place a couple of weeks ago from 11th - 13th December and I had been looking forward to visiting straight after Brick 2014 had finished. I bought my tickets for Saturday 12th December and when it was announced premium tickets were being released weeks before the event, I knew I had to upgrade. Upgrading to a premium ticket enabled me to get into the show one hour early, a goody bag and a lanyard.
I got to the ExCeL just before 9am and once I had been given my wristband and lanyard it was 9am and we were allowed to enter the show. It was well worth upgrading my ticket because the one hour early entry was great. It was really nice being able to walk around the shops with not many other people around because later on in the day the shops become really busy and made it harder to browse the shops.
I did buy a lot of LEGO because there was so much of it for sale! Some things I got included; exclusive Fairy Bricks set from Minifigforlife, signed copies of Bricks magazine from the Bricks stand and series 4 Hazmat man minifigure which I have been wanting for a while. DK Books were also running a great promotion. I bought a LEGO Star Wars book from DK and got a free Luke Skywalker minifigure, Star Wars t-shirt and a Star Wars bag.
The fan zone was full of fantastic models. My favourite models I saw throughout the day were; the Star Wars mosaic, purple FlyBe aeroplane by Bright Bricks and the architecture Style Big Ben, which I thought was really impressive due to its size. (photos below)
The Brick live stage did not have anything with interested me but I watched the 'best toys for Christmas' show by Toys R Us. In my opinion, the live stage had better shows on offer last year. LEGO made an appearance at the show and were giving away a free Club minifigure polybag and Christmas tree polybag to everyone who attended.
A goody bag came with the premium ticket and the pick up time was between 11am and 1pm. I went at 11am to pick up my goody bag and it came with some great goodies. The bag itself had a LEGO Dimensions design on one side and Brick 2015 logo design on the other. Inside there were three LEGO polybags, (Friends Pop Star Red Carpet, Creator Tiger and Star Wars AT-DP) and also some LEGO Dimensions stickers in there too.
I am going to end my report here or else it would take me hours to write about all the amazing activities on offer at Brick. It was a great day out and I spent most of the day there and I would of happily gone back in on the Sunday.
I would recommend going next year as it is a great day out for all ages but I would recommend taking some money becuase there is a lot of LEGO you can buy! You can see the rest of my photos below and a YouTube video I put together of the 'best bits'.
Today I received a very nice surprise in the post, an invite to an exclusive VIP shopping event taking place at my local LEGO store in Leeds on Saturday 21st November with special offers for the attendees.
I was lucky enogh to be invited to the event last year so I am happy to be invited again this year.
The LEGO store opens one hour early at 8:00am and attendees can bring one guest with them. The offers are as follows:
We are now in November and LEGO has a lot of offers for us this month:
It looks like there is a lot going on this month with lots of great offers.

There have been rumours from reliable sources that LEGO will be releasing a Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquaters (set number 75827) on January 1st 2016. Details have been given which include the set containing over 4600 pieces and retailing for $350. The set will be able to be opened up to see interior detail. It is not confirmed whether or not the set will be coming with an Ecto-1 vehicle but the Ecto-1 set is still currently available to purchase on the LEGO Shop website.

Images have been revealed of the yearly Toys R Us Bricktober Promotion. The theme is continuing from last year where each week a 'mini modular' will be given free with certain purchases on LEGO products. This years mini modulars are a Hotel, Train Station, Bakery and Toys R Us Store. Unfortunately, this promotion probably won't be available in the UK but the sets do look quite easy to Bricklink if instructions become available.
Happy Force Friday!
The much anticipated Force Friday is now upon us where Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise can now be purchased! This includes 7 brand new LEGO sets which were revealed yesterday.
In the UK, purchases over £50 on LEGO Star Wars product will get you a free Admiral Yularen polybag and don't forget you can still receive a free Kai Drifter with purchases over £25 and a free Star Wars Episode 1 poster with any LEGO Star Wars purchase.
I am going to Toys R Us then to the LEGO Store this morning and hopefully all the products will not have already sold out.

Hoth Bricks is reporting that LEGO will be giving out a free polybag during Force Friday which is only a couple of days away. However, this polybag is not a brand new Star Wars: The Force Awakens polybag but only Admiral Yularen which was previously given out during May 4th weekend. This offer will be available between 4th September - 5th September with LEGO Star Wars purchases over 50 EUR which should be around £50 if this offer comes to the UK.
This can be very disappointing for fans who already have the Admiral Yularen polybag and it seems LEGO are no longer making an effort in their products much like the re-release of the Winter Village Toy Shop.
But, this article over on Promobricks is reporting that a First Order Snowtrooper polybag is rumoured to be given away during Force Friday. This could be at another retailer like Toys R Us though.
All we can do is wait and see what retailers are offering what in the coming days.
It is now September 1st and Autumn has begun. Although the weather is not great, LEGO have released some great new products available to buy from today!
Also, on Friday, shops around the world including LEGO S@H and LEGO Stores will be selling the brand new Star Wars: The Force Awakens sets.

Promobricks has found an image of the first free holiday gift or this year, 40138 Holiday Train. In America, the set will be available between October 13th and November 13th with purchases over $99. It is unsure whether this set will be in a polybag or a box like these exclusives have been for the past few years. There is no minifigure but it does look like a nice set which I will probably pick up when I buy the Winter Village Toy Shop. All we need now is an image of the next Christmas exclusive which is rumoured to be a Gingerbread House.
Also, The Brick Fan has posted an image of the October Store calendar for the USA. Double VIP points will be between 1st October to 4th October which will probably be the same in the UK. You can see the full store calendar below:
LEGO Star Wars fans, this is the news you have been looking for! A couple of days ago I contacted LEGO Customer Service asking them the dates when the LEGO Star Wars epidose 1 poster will be available. For some reason LEGO keep it a secret in the UK when these posters will be available and are not mentioned in the store calendars. In their response I was given dates for all posters including a LEGO Star Wars episode 7 poster...
These were the list of dates and posters I was given:
So, it looks like we are also being treated to an Episode 7: The Force Awakens poster!
