LEGO Disney 100 Years Celebration (40600) & Houses of the World 3 (40594) Promotions Available on LEGO Shop

As reported yesterday, the promotion for the LEGO Disney 100 Years Celebration (40600) is now available again on the LEGO Shop. You can get the set for free with purchases of $100 in LEGO Disney and Disney DUPLO but it excludes Star Wars and Marvel.

In addition, you can get the LEGO Houses of the World 3 (40594) with purchases of $250 or more. There’s a lot of new sets that have been released since the two promotions initially ran a few months ago so it’s a little easier to get them. Both promos will run from now until September 30, while supplies last.

LEGO Disney 100 Years Celebration (40600) Promotion Returning Soon

We’ve received word that the “sold out” LEGO Disney 100 Years Celebration (40600) gift with purchase set will be coming back in a few days. From September 23-30, you can get the set with $100 purchase of LEGO Disney and Disney DUPLO. This also excludes Star Wars and Marvel even though they’re owned by Disney.

If you remember, the Disney 100 Years Celebration promotion went live in July and it sold out in less than a day. LEGO Brand Stores also reportedly didn’t get much in stock as well. Either LEGO had some production shortage of the set when it initially rolled out or they produced some more in the months since then due to the limited run a few months ago.
