LEGO Iconic Cave Caveman & Cavewoman (5004936) Review

LEGO Iconic Cave Caveman & Cavewoman (5004936)

In recent years, LEGO has released some peculiar standalone sets featuring some past minifigures. It started off with the Iconic Easter (5004468) set with the Chicken Suit Guy then last year with the Gingerbread Man (5005156). Starting tomorrow, LEGO kicks off a new promotion that runs until the end of August which will feature the Iconic Cave Caveman & Cavewoman (5004936). You can get it for free with a purchase of $50 or more at LEGO Brand Stores and on [email protected].

The packaging is fairly interesting. Throughout the whole box, there are various things that are carved into the stone wall including a minifigure blueprint on the back. Also on the back is a lost poster of their supposed pet dinosaur. The door is perforated and it opens to reveal the Caveman and Cavewoman.

The Caveman was first introduced in the Series 1 Collectible Minifigures (8683). For this version, he has a pelt outfit that is more brown than before but unfortunately like before, there is no back printing. He has the same head with the bushy eyebrows and large smile. His hair/beard piece, however, is different with the new Caveman having a dark brown piece. His accessory is a dark brown club.

The Cavewoman was also from a previous Collectible Minifigures series (Series 5 – 8805) and like the Caveman, she has a similar design pattern from before. For the new version, she has a brown outfit with tan outlines. Like before, the hair piece is a soft rubber mold but this one is brown instead of red. There’s also a bone that can be clipped on the front. Her accessory is also a dark brown club.

Overall, the LEGO Iconic Cave Caveman & Cavewoman (5004936) is a decent promotional set if you don’t have the previous versions of these particular minifigures. Even if you have them already, these newer ones are technically exclusive so it’s somewhat of an incentive to pick these ones up too. Again, it is available from August 10-31 with a $50 purchase, while supplies last.

Rumored LEGO Anniversary Sets Coming in 2018

There will be lots of LEGO anniversaries coming up for 2018 including the 60th anniversary of the LEGO brick and it looks like we will be getting some special anniversary sets to celebrate it. In a post over on Eurobricks, Sir von Lego has stated there are five rumored sets that could be centered around various old school LEGO themes which could include some fan favorites like Classic, Space, Castle, Pirates, and Town. They also stated that the Classic box will look like the shape of a brick. LEGO is known for releasing anniversary type sets in the past and it’ll be exciting to see what we’ll be getting next year.

Iconic Caveman & Cavewoman (5004936)

Yesterday, I reported on the August 2017 LEGO Store Calendar and the main promotion of the month is the Iconic Caveman & Cavewoman (5004936) minifigures. It will be available August 10-31 with a purchase of $50 or more, while supplies last.

If you’ve collecting the Collectible Minifigures since the beginning, you’ll notice that the new minifigures look similar to the ones released previously. The Caveman was from Series 1 (8683) while the Cavewoman was from Series 5 (8805). The only difference with the new ones are the colors for the printing on the torsos, legs, and the hair pieces so this technically makes them exclusive to this set.

The packaging for the double minifigures has some designs for the rock home and the wooden door which opens to reveal the minifigures. The Caveman & Cavewoman is the third “Iconic” set that LEGO will be releasing with the first one being the Chicken Suit Guy in the Iconic Easter (5004468) and the other with the Gingerbread Man (5005156) from last year.

LEGO Minifigure Travel Pack (5004932) Review

LEGO Minifigure Travel Pack (5004932)

Earlier this month, LEGO had a promotion for the Minifigure Travel Pack (5004932) with purchases of $35 or more. Here’s a little short review of the set with something special at the end.


Packaging

The box that the Minifigure Travel Pack comes in has the design of a suitcase with printing of stickers throughout. Inside the box, there’s more printing of various LEGO elements that people may take on a trip.

The items inside the box include the instructions in the form of a passport, a bag of parts, and some signs.

Minifigure

There’s one minifigure included with this set and he’s nothing too special. The torso features the spaceman printing and green arms. It has been used before in previous sets but it’s still cool to get that particular one. The legs are medium blue and the cap that he wears is lime green.

Builds

There are lots of little builds that are in the set such as a beach chair with an umbrella, a mini sandcastle, a barbeque, and a camera on a tripod. There’s also a surfboard, a whip used as a fishing rod, some scuba gear, suitcase, and ice cream cone.

The idea of the set is to use these builds along with the minifigure and take picutres of them in various locations. In the back of the instructions, there are some images of the set at different locales.

Results

The LEGO Minifigure Travel Pack (5004932) isn’t your typical promotional set as June is sort of a travel month for LEGO promos. The minifigure is okay but I do like that torso. The builds themselves are really simple ones but at least you can have some extra parts if they don’t suit your fancy.

LEGO has sent me an extra one of this set and I’ll be passing it on to one of you guys. Since this is a small set, I’ll also be putting in a mystery item as well. I’ll be using Rafflecopter for you to enter with and the deadline to enter is next Sunday, July 2. Good luck to everyone.

LEGO Canvas Tote Bag Review

LEGO Canvas Tote Bag

Starting tomorrow, LEGO will be starting a new promotion until the end of the month for an exclusive Canvas Tote Bag. You can get it for free with purchases of $199 or more in LEGO Stores.

For the Canvas Tote Bag itself, it’s your typical full-sized, creme/white colored bag with the LEGO logo branding on one side. The material used for the logo seems to be a decent quality and should be able to withstand multiple uses.

For the compartments, you have the main one which is quite large for normal items like books or a laptop. I was able to fit TLBM Batwing box into it but that is about as much as you can fit into it if you are using it to buy more LEGO. There is also a smaller pocket where the LEGO logo is.

Overall, the new LEGO Canvas Tote Bag is the largest promotional giveaways I’ve seen since coming back to LEGO. The main deterrent is not the bag itself but the high qualifying purchase you have to make to get it. The last tote bag that LEGO released was back in 2011 so it’s nice to see another gear item. Again, it will only be available at LEGO Stores starting on June 15-30 while supplies last. Thank you to the LEGO Affiliate Team for sending this item in.

Update: It looks like LEGO is offering the Canvas Tote Bag on [email protected] when you make a purchase of $199 or more. To redeem the offer, enter the code JUNE at checkout. The promotional period runs through June 30 or while supplies last.
