60 Years of the LEGO Brick (40290) Winner Announced

Last month, I ran a contest for a chance to win the 60 Years of the LEGO Brick (40290) set. There were over 7,000 entries and I’ve randomly chosen the winner and that person is:

Jesus P.

I’ve contacted the winner to get their shipping details. Sorry about the late post about this but I didn’t forget about you guys. With all the issues of Toys R Us and the closing announcements, I’ve been busy dealing with that for the past few weeks and trying to figure out my next steps. I will also be announcing the winner(s) of The LEGO Batman Movie Minifigure Vignette Building Competition in the next day or so stay tuned for that. I think there were some very creative builds for that contest.

LEGO Classic 60th Anniversary Collectible Booklet Review

LEGO Classic 60th Anniversary Collectible Booklet

Back in January, LEGO released an exclusive vintage LEGO Classic Bricks on a Roll (10715) and if you redeemed it via your receipt, you’re supposed to get the 60th Anniversary Collectible Booklet. It looks like they have started to finally ship out and I’ve just received mine after I submitted my receipt at the end of January.

LEGO Classic 60th Anniversary Collectible Booklet

The 60th Anniversary Collectible Booklet comes in a standard white mailer and when you take it out, there’s also black envelope with the 60 Years logo wrapped around it. The cover of the booklet is again embossed with the logo and as you can see, they are numbered on the bottom left. My copy is a very low 482/15,000.

LEGO Classic 60th Anniversary Collectible Booklet

Inside you get a history lesson of LEGO and the LEGO brick that is divided in to decades from the 1950’s to the 2010’s. Within each decade, there are some fun facts that you may not have known about unless you’re caught up with every bit of LEGO history. Did you know the first sets with building instruction manuals didn’t come out until 1964?

After that, there’s a nice looking periodic table of LEGO elements that is filled with a variety of parts. The legend at the boom also gives you some of the nomenclature for the LEGO elements.

LEGO Classic 60th Anniversary Collectible Booklet

At back of the booklet, there’s a list of Top 10 LEGO sets of all time as voted by the AFOL community. I’m not sure when or where the voting took place as I don’t remember doing a post about it but the number 1 set voted for by AFOLs is the Cafe Corner (10182) modular building.

Finally, there are some building instructions, again separated by decades, of some items that can be found in that particular time period. For the 1960’s, you get instructions for a 8mm Camera, the 1970’s get a Polaroid camera, and the 1980’s get an Arcade Console. All the parts used can be found in the Bricks on a Roll (10715) set.

LEGO Classic 60th Anniversary Collectible Booklet

Overall the 60th Anniversary Collectible Booklet is a nice little item if you like collecting random LEGO items. It’s a good read and the extra building instructions are good but I expected there to be more and larger builds.

As I mentioned earlier, they are starting to show up in the mail and I have a feeling that they didn’t actually ship out until last week when the promotion ended although I did see a couple here and there back in February.

LEGO Classic 60th Anniversary Collectible Booklet Update

LEGO Classic 60th Anniversary Collectible Booklet

A lot of you who have purchased the LEGO Classic Bricks on a Roll (10715) from Walmart in hopes of getting the free collectible booklet have asked whether others have gotten it or not even though they’ve submitted their receipt weeks ago. I’ve seen one or two images of the booklet online but the majority of readers who have contacted me have not received theirs at this time.

For me, I submitted my receipt on January 30 and haven’t gotten anything back so far. I’ve emailed customer service and they’ve escalated my case to an “account manager” to look into it. I’ve had others who have emailed in who have also contacted customer service and they stated that the booklets are actually shipping out today, February 26. I’m not sure if this is the case for everyone but it’s worth contacting [email protected] to see what’s going on. Thanks to Fergus for the update on this.

In similar news, there’s only two days left to purchase the LEGO Classic Bricks on a Roll (10715) to be eligible for the booklet if it ever releases. Overall, it’s been somewhat short of a disappointment of how LEGO/Walmart has handled this 60th anniversary promotion so far from this booklet issue to the release of the three limited edition sets. Hopefully there’s still something up LEGO’s sleeve for the rest of the year.

LEGO Classic 60th Anniversary Walmart Exclusive Truck (4000030) Now Available

LEGO Classic 60th Anniversary Walmart Exclusive Truck (4000030)

In a surprise, the Walmart exclusive LEGO Classic 60th Anniversary Truck (4000030) is now available for purchase on Walmart.com. The reason for the surprise is that it is now available at 12am EST which is about twelve hours before the other sets were released on their respective dates. Like with the previous anniversary sets, this one will also go for $19.97 each and you can either have it shipped to your location or you can pick it up at your preferred store. You can also combine it with the LEGO Classic Bricks on a Roll (10715) set to get over the free shipping threshold. This is the last of the Walmart LEGO 60th Anniversary series of sets that will be available.

Thanks to Ben for the heads up.

LEGO Classic Walmart 60th Anniversary Sets Limited to 5000 Each (Update)

The two exclusive limited edition LEGO Classic 60th Anniversary sets from Walmart that have been released so far have been a hit or a miss for fans as they don’t seem to be worth the cost of the sets however that doesn’t stop people from purchasing them. If you’ve already received your sets already, you may have noticed that there is a numbered sticker on them to signify the limited quantities for them and it looks like we now know how many of the sets were produced and it’s not that many.

According to an image shown on Reddit, LEGO customer service has confirmed there are only 5,000 of each of the three sets and there will be no more produced after this run. This means that if you weren’t able to get them when they are released on the first day, you’re probably out of luck unless you turn to the secondary market where flippers are basically selling them for double the retail price.

As for the sets themselves, you’re most likely buying them for collectability reasons and not to build them as you can probably recreate them using the LEGO parts from your collection. I’m still waiting for my sets to come in as I had a scare when Walmart told me they were backordered but it seems they both shipped out yesterday. The last set is the Truck (4000030) and will be available in a few days.

Update: I’ve personally emailed LEGO customer service to also check on the quantity of the sets and they would not release that information. People have said that the original email was fake and there have been images of sets that were over 5,200.
