You can now own and build the largest dinosaur ever created in a LEGO set. 75936 Jurassic Park: T. rex Rampage is now available to LEGO VIP members for US $249.99 | CAN $299.99 | UK £219.99. LEGO VIP membership is free, but if you don’t want LEGO perks and the occasional free set with purchase, this terrific Tyrannosaurus will be generally available beginning July 1st.
Also the LEGO Ideas 40335 Space Rocket Ride promotion we reviewed a few weeks ago is now available with purchases more than $99 through the end of the month, so the behemoth Jurassic Park set certainly qualifies. Too bad the dinosaur can’t fit on the space ship…
Back in January 2018, the LEGO Ideas team held a competition themed around LEGO moments in space open to all builders, to unleash their creative talent. The winner of the contest would have his or her set made into a gift with purchase set. Nearly a year and a half later, we get to see the official set in its final form, with touchups from the LEGO design team, all packaged up and ready to be enjoyed by fans all over the world. The inspiration behind the design is the old-school rocket rides that one would find in storefronts and malls in just about every country.
LEGO has revealed one of the upcoming promotions for Star Wars May the Fourth weekend as the frosty 40333 Battle of Hoth. The small LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary set comes with 195 pieces and a printed anniversary tile. The set will be available for free with Star Wars purchases of $75 US / £75 UK from May 3-6. Other May the Fourth offers depend on location and could include double VIP points on Star Wars sets, certain sets on sale, a poster and a small polybag set as an additional gift with purchase.
40333 Battle of Hoth is the second exclusive/promotional set to receive the anniversary logo following 75227 Darth Vader Bust, though this one will be more widely available. The set features a unique brick-built platform and micro-versions of an AT-AT Walker, Snowspeeder, and Rebel shield generator.
Over the past year, LEGO has produced quite a few special sets with limited availability, including regional and retailer exclusives like the Chinese New Year sets and the Darth Vader Bust. Access to these products has typically been extremely limited, forcing many frustrated LEGO fans both in the US and abroad to go out of their way and pay exorbitant amounts of money from scalpers and other sites to obtain the sets. Starting in May, all that is about to change for the better.
With the mega-blockbuster movie Avengers: Endgame on the horizon, LEGO is celebrating by offering a fairly substantial gift with purchase: 40334 Avengers Tower. The set comes with 211 pieces and an exclusive Iron Man minifigure (a similar set would typically retail for around $20 US). The promotion is available with purchases of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes sets totaling more than than $75 US | £75 UK | $75 CAfor the next two weeks from now until 11:59 pm EST on May 2nd, or whenever supplies run out. (As an added benefit, many Avengers sets currently offer double VIP points too.)
The offer stacks with the Easter seasonal gift with purchase, 853958 Chicken Skater Pod, available with any order of more than $35 US through 11:59 pm EST on April 22nd or until supplies run out.
Additionally, VIP members can get a limited Captain Marvel Art Print (one of three prints available) with LEGO Marvel Super Heroes purchases more than $35. This should stack with the Avengers Tower promotional set.
Last year around the holidays, LEGO launched an incredibly popular Star Wars surprise box promotion available only in the US and Canada. Now a similar box is being offered to LEGO fans in the UK starting on April 11 with Star Wars purchases greater than £85 (an offer that coincides with the launch of the 20th Anniversary sets). This time around, the box promises five unnamed Star Wars items and a chance to win an unspecified limited edition Star Wars minifigure.
The UK LEGO Shop is also currently offering a gift-with-purchase of a cute Chicken Skater Pod just in time for Easter, available with orders greater than £35. (The chick should be available as a gift-with-purchase later this month in the US and Canada.)
Though we do not know what will be included in the UK boxes, the Star Wars boxes in the US and Canada contained five rare minifigures including Colonel Wullf Yularen from the conference room scene on the first Death Star, DJ from The Last Jedi, a stormtrooper sergeant, Han Solo in Hoth gear, and a Scarif shore trooper squad leader from Rogue One.
The LEGO Store has launched two new gift-with-purchase promotions lasting through the weekend. The adorably humorous 30542 Cute Pug polybag is free with purchases of $35 or more online or in LEGO Stores through 11:59pm EST on March 17th.
The second gift-with-purchase offer is in-stores only and not available online. You can get a Build a Minifigure Pack for only $5 (half off the normal price) with purchases of $40 or more through March 17th as well. LEGO stores just got in a few new minifigure pieces not seen before in any set, so dig through what is available to see what treasure you can find.
Calling all Marvel fans! The US market will finally be able to obtain the cancelled Toys R Us Bricktober exclusive that was available internationally last year. The LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Minifigure Pack (5005256) is available as a gift with purchase from the LEGO Shop Online and LEGO retail stores with purchases of at least $75. The limited edition minifigure collection will be available through 11:59 pm EST on March 10th or whenever supplies run out.
The Marvel minifigure pack features characters from the Avengers: Infinity War movie and includes War Machine, Doctor Strange’s companion Wong (in minifigure form for the first time), Tony Stark in his nanobot tracksuit, and Bucky Barnes, AKA The Winter Soldier.
There is also a bunch of other gear, costumes, masks and more themed for The LEGO Movie 2, including a new 853874 Emmet Construction Pod. (Also of note, the new “sewer babies” pack is not available online but is now on LEGO Store shelves.)
LEGO is giving away a free 40186 Year of the Pig set with eligible purchases over 88 USD, 80 GBP, or 88 CAD. The set celebrates the 2019 Lunar New Year, and comes with a rotating head, movable ears, arms, and legs. Also enclosed is a red money envelope with traditional gold color prints.
Along with the new sets, LEGO is offering another exclusive holiday gift with purchase: 40293 Christmas Carousel. The set features a rotating carousel on a festive base and comes with 251 pieces. To set is available with purchases more than $99 through December 10th or while supplies last.
