For those who missed out on purchasing the LEGO Target 2015 Minifigure Gift Box Set (5004077) about a week ago, you’ll be glad to know that Target stores have now started to get shipments of them. They are still priced at $9.99 and it looks like there’s no limit. If you’re looking for it, use an inventory checker with the DPCI number 204-00-1716 to see if there are any near you. Thanks to Stephen for the heads up.
About a week ago, Target released the new 2015 LEGO Minifigure Gift Box Set (5004077) online for purchase individually for $9.99 or you could get it free with certain purchase restrictions but a majority of buyers went with the former route. After a day or two, they seemingly removed it from the website while physical locations don’t even know about it. From what I’m hearing, corporate is pretty upset with it being sold online early or something.
Anyways, people have started receiving their shipments of the box set including me. This is the second box set that Target has released in two years so it could be a trend going forward with them releasing one around this time every year but we’ll see. The packaging is similar with clear windows showing the four minifigures that are included. The design corresponds to the particular theme the minifigure is in which is the same as last year’s themes.
The 2015 LEGO Minifigure Gift Box Set (5004077) is now available for purchase online at Target. The minifigures that are included in the set are DC Comics Super Heroes Lightning Lad, Ninjago Kai, Legends of Chima Sir Fangar, and a City Scuba Diver. You can see the other two minifigures in my previous post from last year.
The set goes for $9.99 but you can get it for free when you purchase $50 of City, Ninjago, and Super Heroes sets. You can also get free shipping on all orders. It doesn’t look like there’s a limit on the Minifigure Box Sets (5004077) you can get. Also it says LEGO items are excluded, you can use the promo code TOYS at checkout to save $2 on it.
If you’re searching for it online, the item number is 49153007. The store DPCI number is 204-00-1716.
Thanks to Stephen for messaging this in.
Update: It looks like Target figured out their mistake and the TOYS promo code does not work at checkout anymore. Also, they are starting to ship the sets already as I have gotten a FedEx tracking number for my shipment.

There are now official images of the final wave of the LEGO Legends of Chima that will be released this summer. Earlier this week, I reported that LEGO Legends of Chima Online video game is shutting down in June so this is also a sign the theme may be going away. There are rumors that the theme will be coming back in mid-2016 but there’s no concrete evidence to support that theory. However, LEGO may decide to release LEGO Dimensions Fun Packs that will have some of the characters so they might not be totally going away. Anyways, below are the last three known sets that will be coming out in summer 2015.
Bladvic’s Rumble Bear (70225)
Mammoth’s Frozen Stronghold
King Crominus’ Rescue (70227)
For those who are still playing LEGO Legends of Chima Online, you have about two months left to play it as the game will be shut down on June 1, 2015 for both online and on iOS.
LEGO Legends of Chima Online was released in 2013 when the theme was in its prime but as we know by now, the popular theme will be finished with the final wave this summer. I’m not sure how popular the game was but it seems that people were still enjoying it on the message boards. Below is the official announcement of the closing of LEGO Legends of Chima Online.
We are sorry to tell you that the game will no longer be accessible starting June 1, 2015 at 9:00am EST both online and through our iOS app. On this date, you will no longer be able to play the game or spend any remaining Gold Bricks. Please be aware that if you have any remaining Gold Bricks, you must use them before the game goes offline on June 1, 2015 at 9:00am EST.
We hope you had a great time exploring the world of CHIMA Online.
The Game Team
Papercutz has lost their licence with The LEGO Group to produce graphic novels based on various themes including LEGO Ninjago and LEGO BIONICLE. The license now goes to Little, Brown which will start releasing new graphic novels late 2015. Papercutz has until the end of the year for Ninjago and BIONICLE and mid-2016 for LEGO Legends of Chima.
Starting this holiday season, there will be books released by Little, Brown based on Ninjago, BIONICLE, and Friends but we’ll get to see previews of them at San Diego Comic Con 2015 which they will have a “major presence” at the event. I’ll be at SDCC again this year so I’ll go check out and see what they have in store.
