The promotion for the LEGO Hidden Side Newbury’s Juice Bar (40336) is now live over on LEGO [email protected]. You can get it for free with purchases of $50 or more until September 15, while supplies last. The promotion also stacks with a number of other promotions that are going on at the same time like the Year of the Pig set with a purchase of the Dragon Boat Race (80103) and the LEGO BrickHeadz Bumble Bee with purchases of $65 or more.
It’s the beginning of the month and that means there are some new Double VIP Points sets on LEGO [email protected]. For September, we have a couple from the new LEGO Hidden Side theme which are the Paranormal Intercept Bus 3000 (70423) and the Newbury Haunted High School (70425). For the Paranormal Bus, you’ll get 780 points and for the High School, you can receive 1,690 points.
I haven’t been on the LEGO VIP Rewards page lately but they have recently updated some of the rewards you can use your points on. If you’re a LEGO print collector, one of the more interesting items is the patent print that goes for 1,500 points. It is the Japanese Patent Application for the LEGO DUPLO brick from 1968. It is printed on premium paper with embossing and it measures 25.5cm x 31.6cm (10″ x 12.4″). It is limited to only 5,000 prints.
It’s September on the east coast and that means there are some new LEGO products that are now available on LEGO [email protected]. First are the LEGO Disney Train and Station (71044) and the LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319) which are now available to everyone. Also available are the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 19 (71025) but only as individual random packs. They don’t have full boxes available yet but you are able to buy 32 at a time. We also have the LEGO BrickHeadz Halloween Ghost (40351).
As far as promotions are concerned, there are two going on with the free LEGO BrickHeadz Bumble Bee (40270) with purchases of $65 or more and the free Year of the Pig with a purchase of the Dragon Boat Race (80103). The promotion for the LEGO Hidden Side Newbury’s Juice Bar (40336) won’t start until September 2.
Here’s an interesting piece of news that have just come across my inbox. It looks like LEGO has already retired the LEGO City Mars Exploration Minifigure Pack (40345) online even though it has only been available for only a month. I’m not sure if this an accident or if it has actually been retired or if it’ll come back in the future. If you have a LEGO Brand Store near you and still want it, you may want to call in and see if they have any in stock. Thanks to Jesse for the heads up!
