The Brick Show Shop is having a promotion for 20% off everything if you use the coupon code thebrickfan. This deal is good through midnight EST on Sunday, November 2.
They have a wide selection of products ranging from custom LEGO builds to custom minifigures to t-shirts. Currently they ship to USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Singapore, Netherlands, Denmark, and Australia. Check out their selection of products and see if anything suits your fancy.
The holiday season is pretty much started now and the December 2014 LEGO Store Calendar is now available. Although it is the last month of the year, the deals that will be available are decent but not over the top.
Continuing from Novemeber, you will be able to get a FREE Exclusive 2015 LEGO Wall Calendar with purchases of $75 or more. This deal is valid until the end of the year. Like we mentioned before, there will be no Pick-A-Brick boxes this year and they have been replaced by the 2015 LEGO Wall Calendar.
The other “promotion” is the 2 of 2 LEGO Creator Holiday Exclusive Ice Skating (40107) set which is only available the first day of December because it is a leftover promotion from Black/”Brick” Friday 2014 weekend. That promotion runs only from November 28 – December 1.
Although, it doesn’t show on this particular version of the December 2014 LEGO Store Calendar, there will be a Monthly Mini Build Event on Tuesday, December 2. It starts at 5pm but get there early because the line usually gets pretty long.
Update: The December 2014 Monthly Mini Build will be a small gingerbread house. Photo courtesy of murphquake.
Other than that, there doesn’t seem to be much going on this December. At the bottom of the front page, it does show some of the themes that will be releasing new sets in Janauary 2015 such as LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Friends, The LEGO Movie, and LEGO Disney Princess. You can also create a holiday card using the LEGO Minifigure Family desktop app.
On the back of the LEGO December 2014 Store Calendar, you get some suggestions for gifts as well as some stocking stuffers. It also shows some shipping deadlines if you want to get your order before Christmas.
In their latest announcement, LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham has revealed their latest playable character, the leader of the Black Lantern Corps, Black Hand. He is most well known in the Blackest Night storyline and recites one of DC’s most famous lines when he extracts “Batman’s” skull from his grave:
The Blackest Night falls from the skies,
The darkness grows as all light dies,
We crave your hearts and your demise,
By my black hand — The dead shall rise! – Blackest Night #0 (June 2009)
It’ll be intersting to see what kind of abilities Black Hand has in LEGO Batman 3.

I’m not sure if this is a LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham character reveal or not but to celebrate Halloween, they have posted an image of the Scarecrow. This version of the Scarecrow will be in the Dark Knight DLC Pack which will also be available on November 11th when LEGO Batman 3 is released.
This reveal is actually a slight surprise since we didn’t see him when images of some of the characters in the Season Pass DLC Packs were revealed back in September. Scarecrow was in all three movies in the Nolan Batman trilogy: Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises.
It’s midnight on the east coast and that means that there’s only one day left for Double VIP Points at LEGO Stores and on Shop@Home. This is also the last day to get the free exclusive LEGO Creator Toy Workshop (40106) with purchases of $99 or more. Unfortunately, the Toy Workshop is already out of stock on S@H but the LEGO Stores may still have some left. You may want to call them and double check to make sure they have them to give out.
A fan favorite DC character has been revealed as a playable character today for LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, Lobo. He is a motocycle-riding intergalactic bounty hunter from the planet Czarnia. He has been a part of many groups including L.E.G.I.O.N., the R.E.B.E.L.S., and Young Justice.
