LEGO releases Doctor Who, Creator, Frozen, and other 2016 sets [News]

The LEGO Shop has just released some of their January 2016 sets, including the new Doctor Who set, several City and Creator sets, and — just in time for Christmas — two Frozen sets. In addition, LEGO has extended their Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals.

Most exciting for many is the release of 21304 Doctor Who (and don’t miss my review of the LEGO Doctor set here on TBB).


I will state on the record that I have never seen Frozen (and have not seen Titanic either), but it appears to be very popular, and this set has a reindeer, so I recommend buying eight or nine of 41066 Anna & Kristoff’s Sleigh Adventure. We’ll have a review of this set soon.


I think this adorable 31045 Ocean Explorer would make a great stocking stuffer for that budding ocean scientist in your life.


Cyber Monday LEGO deals from Amazon [News] is declaring the whole week “Cyber Monday Week,” which is probably the only good sort of week composed entirely of Mondays. In addition to the two batches of Black Friday LEGO deals we posted last week, Amazon has discounted a number of additional LEGO sets (though it’s a distinct possibility I just missed them while in a food coma).

UPDATE: LEGO has now updated the LEGO Shop with new 2016 LEGO sets, and extended the Cyber Monday sales & deals.

The LEGO Chima set 70145 Maula’s Ice Mammoth Stomper is 30% off, down $27 to $62.99.

The LEGO Ninjago set 70749 Enter the Serpent is 26% off, down to $44.20.

The Guardians of the Galaxy set 76020 Knowhere Escape Mission is 26% off, at $29.49.

I’m sure there are more discounts you can find on Amazon’s LEGO store, but I’ve been at this for a week and I’m exhausted.

As always, whether you’re buying diapers or a new flat screen TV, any purchase (not just LEGO) that you make on Amazon after clicking through from helps support everything we do — event sponsorship, contests like Pimp Rey’s Speeder, and the day-to-day business of running the site. So, as you gear up for holiday shopping over the next few weeks, keep us in mind!

And thank you — you make The Brothers Brick possible.

Brickmania Black Friday / Small Business Saturday sales [News]

Another great LEGO-centered small business we love to support here at TBB is Brickmania, led by talented designer and all-around great guy Dan Siskind.

Dan and his team in Minneapolis have posted daily deals all week this week, leading up to the massively discounted Fokker Dr.1 — The iconic Red Baron’s tri-plane from from World War I. It’s discounted from $195 to $95 starting at midnight tonight.

Brickmania has been releasing a new custom kit at the rate of about one a week for months now, and I’ve been eyeing this gorgeous M3A1 Scout Car for the last few weeks.

Like other BrickArms resellers (including Citizen Brick and GI Brick), Brickmania is also a great place to stock up on the types of custom accessories that LEGO will likely never produce.

Citizen Brick deals for Black Friday / Small Business Saturday [News]

Our good friends over at Citizen Brick have just announced their Black Friday deals, centered on a batch of new custom minifig packs and a pretty sweet “Xmas Fun-Pak” you can get by spending $75 or more.

Joe and his team are releasing a number of new products on Friday, starting with this three-pack cleverly titled “Bowling Buddies.”

And don’t miss “Pity Enthusiast.”

I’ve never regretted a single purchase I’ve ever made from Citizen Brick, and the CB team are some of the nicest people in the LEGO vendor community I’ve had the pleasure to meet. While you load up on all those discounted bricks on Black Friday, consider spending some of your LEGO budget to help support this innovative, boundary-pushing small business as well.

Supplies are limited (I’ve missed some pretty awesome new items myself in the past), so take a nap after that turkey dinner and set an alarm for midnight Central Time so you can get shopping!
