LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) Listed on Toys R Us

The LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) won’t be a LEGO exclusive anymore because it is now listed on the Toys R Us website. It isn’t currently available at this time but you can sign up for email notifications to let you know when they will have some in their warehouse. The RWeb# is 810544.

[email protected] has had limited availability since it was first launched and you can no longer get the Black VIP Card that went with it. I’m going to take a stab in the dark and say that LEGO didn’t have enough to make the rumored 30,000 cards that were planned for this promotion.

If you’re still looking for the UCS Falcon, it may be worth signing up for the TRU email notifications. I’ve had luck with the system on other products so it does work.

LEGO Seasonal BrickHeadz Valentine’s Bee (40270) Review

LEGO Seasonal BrickHeadz Valentine's Bee (40270)

In previous years, LEGO has released various Seasonal sets for the holidays which included vignettes and brick-built characters.

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235) Available in February in the US

LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235)

I have the February 2018 LEGO Store Calendar and one of the main promotions for the month is the LEGO Seasonal Year of the Dog (40235) set. Apparently for this year, it is not an Asian country exclusive as we will be able to get it from February 16-28 with a purchase of $88 or more, while supplies last. The Dog joins a number of previous animals that have been released that are from the Chinese zodiac.

Coincidentally, February 16 is Lunar New Year so it’s nice to see that LEGO has also decided to celebrate the event with this set here in the US. As for the purchase price of $88, the number 88 symbolizes fortune and good luck in Chinese culture. I am very looking forward to the LEGO Year of the Dog set as I am born on this zodiac animal and don’t have to resort to the secondary market to get a copy of it.
