It is time to celebrate and do a little holiday shopping because double VIP points have returned to the LEGO Store. It has been a long time since the last blanket 2x VIP points event, with LEGO instead opting for double points on select sets the last few months. If you have been waiting for double points to make bigger purchases like the Hogwarts Castle or Betrayal at Cloud City, now is the time.
Along with double VIP points, LEGO is offering a free minifigure collector frame as a gift with any purchase more than $75. The promotion runs through the 31st or while supplies last. To see all the most recent sets released by LEGO, check our list of new October sets as well as all the new sets from the summer.

The new store is expected to be slightly more than half the size of the Disney Resort Store at 6297 sq feet (585 square meters) over two floors. In comparison, the first store was around 10,764 sq feet spread (1,000 square metres) over two floors.
