LEGO is now offering a limited run of the LEGO Amelia Earhart Tribute (40450) promotional set on the LEGO Rewards Center. You can redeem it for 1,500 VIP points and you’ll get a code to use during your next LEGO Shop checkout. The code will be valid for 60 days.
It has been discovered on some new LEGO certification pages that there will be some existing LEGO Creator sets that will be in new colors. The Fiat 500 (77942) will be coming out in a light blue color scheme and the Mighty Dinosaurs (77941) will be in a dark blue.
We’re not sure why LEGO has made the change but they do look more visually appealing. We are also not sure of both colors will be on shelves at the same time or not or if the new ones will be in a somewhat limited edition wave.
The LEGO Star Wars Stormtrooper Helmet (75276) is currently on sale on Amazon for 20% off. It is now priced at $47.99 which is $12 off the normal retail price of $59.99. It’s been on sale at this price for a while now so it may seem that it has hit the constant 20% off price point from here on out. At the same time, the Boba Fett Helmet (75277) is on sale for 16% off.
Even though the LEGO Disney Mickey Mouse’s Propeller Plane (10772) was released today, Walmart already has it on sale for 30% off. It is currently selling for only $6.99 which is $3 off the normal retail price which is a great deal for a literal brand-new set.
In less than 12 hours, it looks like LEGO has sold out of the LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi and the Great Protector (30454) polybag over on the LEGO Shop. The offer does not show up anymore even if you have the required $40 of LEGO Marvel products in your cart. Considering there are a lot of new Marvel sets that just came out, I’m not surprised that it quickly went out of stock. Your local LEGO Brand Store may still have some but I would suggest calling them to confirm. If they do, the promotion is supposed to run until August 15 or until they run out as well.
