The sets released in October 2020 is an early shopping list reminder for the coming Christmas celebrations. The themed choices include a Christmas 2-in-1 wreath, tree ornaments and the Brickheadz nutcracker and the general availability of the LEGO Star Wars Master Builder Series 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina. An unexpected surprise is the Toad’s Special Hideaway expansion set from the LEGO® Super Mario™ universe which was meant to be an SDCC exclusive now cancelled and released on the LEGO store (US only). This also means that it will not be available in all regions.
The Frankenstein BrickHeadz will be available on the LEGO Online stores (Sept 15). As usual, the exact time of release may vary across regions. A new addition to the store is the Obi Wan Star Wars LEGO 20th Anniversary figure that was previously only available as a gift-with-purchase and if you feel lucky, you can order individual packs of the latest Harry Potter Series 2 collectible minifigures.
LEGO Education sets are now available online for a limited time from the LEGO Store online.

The good news is these sets contribute to VIP points, which has not been the case in the past. We have listed each product available and provided an op-ed about the reasoning behind the pricing.
