The LEGO Disney Frozen 2 were just recently released but Amazon currently has a sale on a majority of the sets. There’s even a limited time deal on the Olaf (41169) buildable figure which has the same 20% discount as the other sets. Thanks to Winnie for the heads up.
LEGO has announced they are expanding their partnership with tween-centric retailer Justice to inspire more girls through creative play. Justice will be begin stocking LEGO Disney and Friends sets as well as having in-store building events in North America starting next month. You can check out the details below.
LEGO Group And Justice Build On Partnership To Inspire More Girls Through Creative Building Play
-LEGO® activities and building sets to be available in Justice stores just in time for the holidays-
ENFIELD, Conn., Oct. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — LEGO Group and Justice today announced expansion of their brand partnership to engage girls in creative play.
Beginning this month, LEGO® Friends and LEGO Disney building sets will be sold in Justice stores nationwide, including sets based on the upcoming film, Frozen 2. On November 10, an after-hours “Build & Shop” LEGO building event will take place in 300 Justice stores across the U.S. and Canada from 6 – 8pm. Girls can participate in the event for free and the first 25 attendees will receive and build a special LEGO set to take home. A list of participating stores can be found on shopjustice.com two weeks prior to the event.
“We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Justice, a brand that shares our same values of inspiring and developing girls and their interests through self-expression,” said Michael McNally, senior director, brand relations at LEGO Systems, Inc. “The Live Justice mantra of ‘Every Girl. Every Day.’ makes their stores a perfect place to create memorable experiences where girls can get hands-on experimenting with LEGO bricks and then find the perfect LEGO set to continue the fun at home.”
“Our goal is to create inspiring content and engaging experiences that support our Live Justice values and our mission of empowering girls to change the world,” said Jonathan Mugler, Chief Merchandising Officer of Justice. “And our partnership with LEGO Group is an important step in further expanding that mission. Their commitment to providing experiences that provoke creativity and build self-confidence is so important in today’s world and we are excited to bring that to more girls.”
In partnering with Justice, LEGO Group aims to engage even more girls in the lifelong benefits of construction play, such as confidence building, creativity, daring, and problem-solving. Earlier this year, the iconic toy brand engaged Justice’s Girls with Heart Ambassadors and their parents in hands-on creative building at the retailer’s annual Live Justice Summit. Then, the LEGO Friends brand was a sponsor of the Live Justice Awards, recognizing and celebrating incredible girls who make a difference in their local communities while inspiring others to do the same. The LEGO Friends Heart Squad, including teen influencers Nicole Laeno, Sophie Michelle, JustJordan33, Rykel Bennett and Katie Donnelly presented a LEGO sponsored award to a real-world builder, Bria Neff, who paints pictures of endangered species and has donated the proceeds from her work – $65,000 to date – to organizations that support wildlife conservation. Sophie Michelle and Nicole Laeno performed and show attendees got creative through hands-on LEGO building fun.
There are sales to be had and the latest one I want to talk about is the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition (76105) which is currently 30% off at Walmart. As of this post, it is priced at $79.99 which is $40 off and it is the best price I’ve seen this set at. I’m not sure how many they have in stock at this price but jump on it if you’ve been wanting to pick it up.
Friends is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and there will be a Friends Experience in Las Vegas this weekend that will feature a life-sized version of Central Perk built out of LEGO. Nathan Sawaya has been commissioned to recreate a life-sized LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319) that is 700 square feet and using almost 1 million LEGO bricks over a period of four months. It will be revealed and displayed today at the New York-New York Hotel which you can go and check out. As for the Central Perk set itself, it is currently out of stock again after going back up for a short time a few days ago.
Go big…or go home! At nearly 700 square feet, this re-creation of one of the series’ signature sets will be on display exclusively at New York-New York. Built out of 900,000 LEGO bricks over a period of four months, this life-sized re-creation from acclaimed artist Nathan Sawaya features everything from the iconic sofa to the latest menu board.
Fun Facts: No one has ever built a life-sized TV set out of LEGO bricks before. Although the creators binge-watched every season of “Friends,” it took them longer to build the set than to watch the series. The furniture is all fully functional –– allowing visitors to sit on the couches and chairs. The signature orange couch took the longest time to build –– as the most challenging part of the process was replicating the patterns in the upholstery.
The sale for The LEGO Movie 2 Benny’s Space Squad (70841) has dropped down to $6.98 which is now 30% off the retail price. Obviously this is a great price for what you get in the set including four different colored space minifigures. The set might be retired by the end of the year so this is a significant deal for collectors and resellers.
The Ratatouille: Open The Doors! project by Brick Project is the latest to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas. The project is based on the popular Disney animated film from 2007 and it features the kitchen and restaurant. It has 2,853 pieces and it also includes minifigures of Linguini Alfredo, Colette Tatou, Skinner, and Anton Ego as well as Rémy.
A majority of the recent wave of LEGO Harry Potter sets are now on sale over on Amazon. Most of the sets are discounted 20% while the Advent Calendar is a little bit less. I’m not sure if they will be discounted even more during the holiday season but this is as good as they get for now.
