April 2017 LEGO Store Calendar! Mini Volkswagen Beetle Promo!

March 2017 has arrived at last, and while the LEGO Store March 2017 Calendar wasn’t exactly filled with thrilling promos (yet another Police Helicopter promo and a Duplo Fish), the month has brought us something that is worth getting excited about: the early April 2017 LEGO Store Calendar! TLG wants us to “Celebrate Friendship” next month with a Tic-Tac-Toe Polybag promo, one of the scariest Mini Monthly Model Builds ever–and what’s sure to be one of the hottest promos of the year: the Mini Volkswagen Beetle Polybag!

April 2017 LEGO Store Calendar

With no new sets being released in major themes next month and the beloved LEGO May the 4th event still two months away, it was looking like April 2017 might end up being a pretty dull month at the LEGO Stores.

Thankfully, all it takes is one good promotion to turn around an otherwise boring month, and April has at least one promo going on that most brick fans are going to be salivating over!

Free LEGO Mini Volkswagen Beetle Promo PolybagYes, the rumors are true: the 40251 LEGO Mini Volkswagen Beetle polybag set promo will finally begin in the United States on April 1st and run until April 15th (or “while supplies last”, anyway).

With Easter fast becoming “second Christmas” as far as shopping is concerned and the qualifying purchase for the promotional Mini Volkswagen Beetle 40251 polybag being a low $50 purchase on anything, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this promo sold out early next month.

Free LEGO Friends Tic Tac Toe Game Polybag PromoBut that’s not the only free promo in April–there’s also a LEGO Friends Tic-Tac-Toe polybag set being given away with any $20 Friends purchase! I think this is a rather cute little Friends set, with the X’s and O’s being played by cute little animals.

I like the idea of a friendly game as a promotional giveaway in a month celebrating friendship, so the LEGO Tic-Tac-Toe set gets a thumbs up from me.

LEGO Stores April 2017 Mini Monthly Model Build Chick in EggWe’ve also got an Easter themed Mini Monthly Model Build coming up on April 4th and 5th–but for a change, I’m not jealous at all that us old geezers aren’t allowed to participate!

The April 2017 VIP Monthly Mini Model Build is for an Easter Chick being hatched out of an egg with its eyes still closed… while wearing a top hat. Umm, yikes. Personally, I find this Easter Chick to be downright terrifying, but maybe that’s just me…

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary 71042 Ship April LEGO Stores

The final item of note on next month’s calendar is the impending release for everyone of the exclusive LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary 71042 set!

It’s been years since we got a new POTC set, and this looked very impressive when I saw it at the New York Toy Fair 2017 last month. Pirate fans are going to love this!

And… that’s it, really! There’s no VIP Early Access in April, as the May 2017 D2C set is (of course) the LEGO Star Wars Snowspeeder UCS set that we’re not supposed to know about yet. We should be seeing the UCS Snowspeeder set revealed any day now, though, so stay tuned to the Brick Toy News Twitter and Facebook Pages for more on that!

April 2017 LEGO Store CalendarWhat do you think of the April 2017 LEGO Store Calendar, brick fans? Will you be heading to your local store next month to pick up a Mini Volkswagen Beetle set or for any other reason, and what are you hoping to see as the promos on the May 2017 Calendar?
