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.
