2017 has finally arrived, bringing with it the much-anticipated Assembly Square Modular Building and dozens of other new sets! But all that’s old news now, and it’s time to look ahead to what’s going to be one of the biggest months ever for TLG! Along with 100+ new sets being revealed at the New York Toy Fair 2017, the LEGO Batman Movie will finally hit theaters–and the February 2017 LEGO Store Calendar is filled with free promo polybags and posters to celebrate…Continue Reading →
There may still be another two months and change left in 2016, but another year of LEGO Store Calendars has now come and gone. That’s right–ahead of schedule, the December 2016 LEGO Store Calendar has now been officially posted online in glorious hi-res form! And while the December calendars are ofttimes are a bit dull, that’s not the case this year at all: the first LEGO Moana set is revealed on this calendar, early 2017 set releases are announced… and the controversial return of the Gingerbread Man minifigure as a promo!Continue Reading →
By this late in the month, the newest LEGO Store Calendar has usually popped up online. But because of the fact that the Death Star is still meant to be under wraps and hasn’t been officially revealed at the moment (though that starship has clearly sailed), TLG hasn’t posted the usual hi-res images of the October 2016 LEGO Store Calendar just yet. Thankfully, though, a low-res version of the calendar has appeared, confirming the Death Star, Double VIP Points, and one of the most unique free promos ever: an exclusive Holiday Countdown Calendar!Continue Reading →
And now we find ourselves once again in the desolate wasteland that is the barren field of LEGO news in the time period between the Summer 2016 sets being released and the Winter 2017 sets being revealed. We’ve got just under a month until TLG will be revealing the first LEGO 2017 sets during San Diego Comic-Con 2016–but in the meantime, it’s the August 2016 LEGO Store Calendar to the rescue! Not only will this August bring us the much-anticipated Mini London Bus promo polybag, but it also bring another free promo, one of my favorite Mini Monthly Model Builds and more!Continue Reading →
Mark “May 22” on your calendars, kids, because it may be the new “Early LEGO Day”! Not only do a handful of sets we were originally told wouldn’t be available for months including the City Fun in the Park People Pack set go up for order online today, but the July 2016 LEGO Store Calendar has also been posted over a week early! And it’s another goodie, including two free promo sets (Classic Knights promo!), a few exclusive set releases and more!Continue Reading →
April turned out to be a pretty boring month, with very little “news” that wasn’t just official photos of sets I took better photos of back at New York Toy Fair 2016.
But the end of April is nigh, and now we can look ahead to the June 2016 LEGO Store Calendar–which features one of the best promo sets of the year, a surprise VIP Early Access set, a Seaplane Mini Monthly Model Build and more!Continue Reading →
We’re approaching the end of March 2016, and once again that can only mean one thing: it’s time to look forward in time one month-plus and see what’s coming up in May! And while some of this year’s calendars have been a mite weak, this month is gonna be a good one!
The May 2016 LEGO Store Calendar reveals the exclusive May the 4th 2016 Star Wars Minifigure, a free LEGO Captain America motorcycle polybag and more!Continue Reading →
As I was looking over my articles and reviewing what was left to talk about as far as LEGO Summer 2016 sets go, I was shocked to discover that there was an advent calendar I hadn’t talked about yet! Yes, I covered the LEGO Star Wars 2016 Advent Calendar and LEGO City 2016 Calendar last month–but that’s only two out of three! Completing the trio as usual, the LEGO Friends 2016 Advent Calendar 41131 is coming our way in September 2016!Continue Reading →
Sometimes we have to sit and wait for days after a month begins for the new LEGO Store calendar to be posted… and sometimes we do not! In what has to be some kind of record, this month TLG has posted the April 2016 LEGO Store Calendar over a month and a week before the start of April! And not only has the new calendar been posted super-early–but it also contains some news and polybag promos fans have been rabid to hear about–including the fabled LEGO Batman Classic TV Mr. Freeze minifigure promo!Continue Reading →
Earlier this week I posted Toy Fair 2016 photos and talked about “the classic”, “the original”, the beloved LEGO City 2016 Advent Calendar. But while City was the first theme to get a calendar, it was long ago unseated as the most popular of the different Advent Calendars that TLG produces each year. And so, without further ado, let’s take a look at the headliner of this year’s crop of calendars: the LEGO Star Wars 2016 Advent Calendar 75146!Continue Reading →
