It’s a new month and that means there is a new promotion for the LEGO VIP double points sets. For November, the sets are the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043) and the newly released LEGO Creator Winter Village Fire Station (10263). The promotion runs through the whole month of November and you can get double points in LEGO Stores, [email protected], and phone orders.
The LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Book (21315) is now available and if you’ve followed the project on Ideas, you’ll notice that LEGO made some minor changes to it. Jason Allemann has uploaded a new video showing some modifications he has made to the official set to his liking.
One of the big changes was that LEGO omitted the clasp on the set which I mentioned in my review. In the video, he has shown us know how to make a small change to the set to add the clasp. What’s cool is that you don’t even need your own parts to make because it uses existing parts from the set itself. Jason also shows us how to make a clip clasp but that will require some extra parts.
BlizzCon 2018 kicks off tomorrow and attendees will be able to see a LEGO Overwatch statue of D.Va at the event. Both D.Va and her mech consists of 145,276 pieces and weighs 1,256 pounds together and it took LEGO builders 731 hours to construct.
It’s assumed that some of the LEGO Overwatch sets will be on display at BlizzCon but we’ve already seen images of the set from my previous article from last week. Which set are you looking forward to getting?

This is my final Amazon deal for today and I’ve saved the best for last for the next hour. They currently has a lightning deal for the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Classic TV Series – Batcave (76052) on sale for $169.97 which is 37% off or $100.02 off the normal price of $269.99. This is definitely worth picking up because of the minifigures as well as some of the builds. There is a percentage claim on this set so hurry if you have been wanting one or want to expand on an existing Batcave.
Update: The lightning deal is over but there’s currently a smaller sale on it for $240.99.
