If you saw my (late) review of The LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigures (71023) a few days ago, you saw that I was able to get three complete sets from my “box.” Since I did get some extras, I might as well do a quick giveaway for one (1) complete set. It’ll run for a week and I’ll be using the same format as before. The giveaway ends on March 18 and I’ll choose the winner shortly after. If you can’t see the widget below, use this link to go to the entry page directly.
Today is the last day for the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Bricktober 2018 (5005256) promotion on [email protected]. Once this promo is over, the minifigures that are included will be a little harder to get since they are exclusive to this set.
In addition, LEGO is also throwing in the LEGO Ford Mustang Keychain (5005822) with any purchase of $149.99 or more even though it was originally bundled in with a purchase of the Ford Mustang (10265). I’m not sure if this a bug or of it is intentional as it shows up in your cart either way so get in on it before they find out about the mistake.
Unlike the US, the LEGO Store Calendars in other countries still show some upcoming gift-with-purchase promotions and for April, there’s a cool LEGO Marvel Super Heroes one. According to the Spanish LEGO Store flyer, there is a Marvel one with purchases of 79.99€ and it has been revealed to be the Avengers Tower (40334).
This set was accidentally put on store shelves at one of the Certified Stores and it features the Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years Avengers Tower. It has a microscale version of the tower along with the Quinjet as well as an exclusive Iron Man minifigure.
This set is similar to the LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley (40289) promotion that we got last year. There’s no word yet on availability here in the US but we’ll get details of it some time next month which I’ll let you guys know. Thanks to Joey for the heads up.
If you’re looking for a great ship to add to your collection, Amazon and Walmart has a deep discount on The LEGO Ninjago Movie Destiny’s Bounty (70618). It is currently going for $119.99 which is 25% off the regular price or $40 off. If you’re a parts monkey, the $0.05/piece ratio is also very attractive. The Destiny’s Bounty is a very well made set with a lot of little details and is one of the few Ninjago Movie sets that I still have built and displayed. If you do decide to purchase this set, please use our links at it does help support the site.
The Reputation Institute has released their annual RepTrak 100 survey and for the second year in a row, LEGO is ranked second as the most highly regarded company in the world. The survey takes account of several categories including Products & Services, Innovation, Workplace, Governance, Citizenship, Leadership and Performance and it gauges the emotional appeal of each company. This year also marks the ninth year in a row that LEGO has made the top 10 on the RepTrak 100 survey. Check out the press release below.
THE LEGO GROUP MAINTAINS RANK AS THE 2ND MOST HIGHLY REGARDED COMPANY IN THE WORLD
For the ninth year in a row, the LEGO Group is ranked in the Top 10 of the Reputation Institute annual RepTrak®100 survey, retaining its number 2 position from last year.
Reputation Institute has released the annual RepTrak®100 survey. The LEGO Group maintains its rank from last year as the second-most highly regarded company in the world when it comes to corporate reputation.
Chief Executive Officer of the LEGO Group, Niels B. Christiansen, commented on the results:
“We are very happy and humbled to maintain such high regard by the public. It reflects the dedication our employees show every day to bring LEGO® play to children all over the world. In 2018 we bucked the toy industry trends, grew globally and delivered great play experiences to millions of children. The thousands of LEGO employees around the world should take pride in the fact that the general public hold us and the LEGO brand in such high regard.”
“What is important about the ranking is what lies behind it; that children and parents all over the world understand and acknowledge our aim to positively impact the world for future generations, and to deliver play experiences that help children develop those essential skills they need for the future.”
The RepTrak®100 study developed by Reputation Institute measures the corporate reputation of 100 companies by asking the public in 15 countries questions about the emotional appeal of each company. The study scores the companies on seven dimensions: Products & Services, Innovation, Workplace, Governance, Citizenship, Leadership and Performance.
