LEGO Speed Champions Ferrari 488 GT3 "Scuderia Corsa" (75886)

Next up on my reviews of the 2018 LEGO Speed Champions set, the next one that I’ll be taking a look at is the Ferrari 488 GT3 “Scuderia Corsa” (75886). The set contains 179 pieces and will retail for $14.99 starting on March 1. We’ve already had a few Ferraris that have been released for the Speed Champions theme but let’s see if the Scuderia Corsa is a worthy addition to your collection. The contents of the box include three unnumbered bags, a bag of rims, the instruction booklet, a sticker sheet, and a loose chassis.

Last Day for LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235) Promotion

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235)

Today is the last to get your orders in for the free LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235) set on [email protected]. The minimum purchase to get it is $88 and it’s a pretty good promotion since this is the first time that the US is able to get these Year of the Zodiac animals. Check out my review of the set if you’re still on the fence about getting it.


LEGO Marvel Super Heroes March 3-4 Offers Revealed

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Art Print (5005573)

According to the March 2018 LEGO Store Calendar, there will be some special offers to kick off the release of the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Avengers: Infinity War sets and it looks like LEGO has revealed the offers for this weekend.

There are three offers that will be available only for this weekend. The first offer is the regular color Marvel art print (5005573) with a LEGO Marvel Super Heroes purchase of $25 or more which you can see above.

Next up is probably the best one which is the limited edition art print sketch (5005574) of the Hulkbuster by Marvel illustrator Ron Lim when you purchase The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition (76105). This offer is only available for LEGO VIP members.

The last offer is the free LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The Guardians’ Ship (30525) with a Marvel purchase of $75 or more.

Technically you can get all three offers in one single swoop when you purchase the Hulkbuster since it meets all the requirements. The only issue when ordering on [email protected] is if the prints are protected or will they be folded up which will be a major disappointment. I would suggest heading to a LEGO Brand Store to make your purchase to ensure the prints are in pristine condition when you get them. All three offers are available on [email protected] until March 4 or while supplies last. I’ve been told that stores may not have many Hulkbusters and the sketch prints available to last both days so I suggest getting in line early Saturday morning.

The LEGO Batman Movie Collectible Minifigures Series 2 (71020) Review

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.
