If you’re looking to add some trains to your LEGO City layout, there’s some good deals going at the moment for the LEGO City Cargo Train (60052). It’s currently priced at $123.99 on Amazon which is 38% off the retail price of $199.99.
Over on eBay, the Toys R Us storefront has the set for $127.99 but you also get a bonus $10 eBay gift card on top of it plus free shipping.
It’s been kind of slow today but Clutch over at Bricks on the Dollar has let us know that they’re doing another :EGO giveaway. This time, the giveaway is a custom Toy Shop build by Click and Snap Bricks. If anything, you get some free parts to use later. To enter, just sign up, just enter your email in the entry form. As far as I know, BotD doesn’t really spam out emails so that’s good. The contest ends at the end of October.

If you glanced over the December 2016 LEGO Store Calendar from earlier today, you may have noticed something new on the back. We now have our first official look at one of the the new LEGO Disney Moana sets based on the movie with Moana on the High Seas (41150).
It’s kind of hard to tell from the image but the set has a little island area as well as a little raft with a sail. You also get the Moana minidoll as well as the Maui bigfig.
The calendar states that the set will be available in December and there’s another set coming in 2017. What do you guys think of the set? Does it strike your fancy?
Earlier today, I reported on December 2016 LEGO Store Calendar and there’s some interesting news that comes from that. The first one I’ll be reporting on this the return of the free Gingerbread Man (5005156) with purchases of $50 or more at LEGO Stores and on [email protected] from December 12-18.
The Gingerbread Man minifigure itself is not new as it was in the Series 11 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71002) but it does not have the red “Dunk Me!” cup. However, it does come with a decorative box in the form of a Gingerbread House similar the Easter Minifigure (5004468) from earlier this year.
So if you missed out on the Gingerbread Man minifigure from three years ago, December will be your best chance to get one, outside of the secondary market. It’s currently going for $10+ over on BrickLink. The promotion will last seven days but I have a feeling that it’ll be sold out before that so get your orders in early. Hopefully we’ll be able to find it at Toys R Us as well like with the Easter Chicken which as able to be purchased individually at $4.99 each.
The December 2016 LEGO Store Calendar is now available and we can now see the promotions and events that will be happening during the month.
November 28-December 11: Free 2017 Colorable Wall Calendar with purhcases of $75 or more.
December 6-7: The VIP Monthly Mini Model Build will be a Christmas Present (40219).
December 10-11: Double VIP Points on everything at LEGO Stores and on [email protected]
December 12-18: Free Gingerbread Man (5005156) with purchases of $50 or more.
December 20: Order by noon for holiday delivery.
LEGO has been traditionally releasing Seasonal sets for some of the major events that happen throughout the year and 2016 hasn’t changed. For 2016, LEGO has already released the Vampire and Bat (40203) which retails for the usual $9.99 and has 150 pieces. As with all the 2016 Seasonal sets, you have the character builds opposed to the more popular vignette sets from last year. The contents of the box include three un-numbered bags and the instructions.
If you were fond of the LEGO City Coast Guard sets back in 2008 and 2013, it looks like they’ll be making a comeback again next year. According to Brickset’s database, there are six sets listed under the subtheme for the summer 2017 wave with set numbers ranging from 60163-60168. Of course, this is just a partial list of the summer 2017 LEGO City sets as there are a lot more in the theme.
Do you guys enjoy the LEGO City Coast Guard sets when they were released a few years ago? Let us know in the comments below.
