LEGO Hamley’s Royal Guard (5005233) Minifigure Polybag Available Online

LEGO Hamley's Royal Guard (5005233)

If you’ve been wanting to pick up the LEGO Hamley’s Royal Guard (5005233) minifigure polybag, you can now purchase it online on their website. Like in stores, it goes for £6.00 each which is a little expensive for what you get but it is an exclusive minifigure. Note that Hamley’s can only ship to the UK and European countries so shipping to the US is out. The only way you can get it is on the secondary market or if you know someone. Speaking of knowing someone, can any of you readers help out in sending me a couple?

60 Years of the LEGO Brick (40290) Building Instructions Now Available

60 Years of the LEGO Brick (40290)

The 60 Years of the LEGO Brick (40290) set will be available at the end of January but you can now download the building instructions for it early. The nice thing about seeing the instructions early is because you also have the parts list. Fortunately, the set doesn’t seem to have any exclusive pieces besides the new 2×4 printed 60th anniversary 2×4 tile. However, there are some fairly rare new pieces like the 1×3 plate with with studs and the 3×3 black plate, just to name a few.

As I mentioned before, the 60 Years of the LEGO Brick (40290) set will be available from January 28 – February 14 with a purchase of $125 or more at LEGO Brand Stores and on [email protected].

Return of the LEGO Storage Heads

When I came back to LEGO back in 2011, one of the new things that LEGO released was the Sort and Store heads. They retired a short time later in 2013 and nothing really has ever replaced the popularity of it, until now. The folks at Room Copenhagen, who has licensing agreements with LEGO to produce these storage heads, has let us know that they are now available again for purchase on Amazon. The only change with these updated heads is that they are only storage heads and there’s no sorting separators for them.

The heads come in Boy and Girl versions as well as in Large and Small.

The price for them is currently at $34.99 which is 17% off the retail price of $41.99. Even the price is cheaper than the price of $44.99 for the original heads.

LEGO LEGOLAND Castle (40306)

For those who live near LEGOLAND, there’s an exclusive LEGO set that may be coming out soon that you may be interested in. Brickset has uploaded an image of the LEGOLAND Castle (40306) which features a model that is probably based on the LEGOLAND Castle Hotel. Ollie also makes an appearance as it pokes out on one side of the building. The set has 220 pieces and will most likely retail for $9.99 at the shops at LEGOLAND parks at the beginning of the year. It most likely won’t be available on [email protected] but some LEGO Brand Stores that are near a park like in San Diego may carry it.

2017 LEGO Brand Retail Manager’s Conference Exclusive Minifigure Revealed

LEGO Brand Retail Manager's Conference 2017

Every year at the LEGO Brand Retail Manager’s Conference, managers who attend get a very exclusive minifigure and it looks like the 2017 on at Atlanta has been revealed. As you can see above, the minifigure is dressed up in a magician’s outfit over the yellow LEGO Store apron. The description says that the quantity produced might be under 60. This set has popped up on eBay even though the cardboard in the clamshell says “Not for Resale.” If you have a cool $5,500 laying around, this exclusive minifigure can be yours. If you didn’t see it yet, the seller also has the 2015 Zombie and 2016 Zack available as well.

Thanks to Ziggy for the heads up.
