LEGO Stores Introduce Pick-A-Model Sets to Pick-A-Brick Wall

LEGO Store Pick-A-Model

On April 1st, LEGO Brand Stores made a major change to the Pick-A-Brick Wall. Gone are the elements that go well with certain LEGO themes. Now we have a new Pick-A-Model section that’s been added to the wall. Each quarter, there are two different models that you can create for $4.99 per model. Each model comes with their own LEGO elements that you can get from the wall. The clamshell packaging comes with a diagram that shows all the elements you need to build the model.

There are a couple of downside of the new Pick-A-Brick Wall. One thing is that you will have 12 less elements from choose from because of the space taken up by the Pick-A-Brick cups and display as well as the Pick-A-Model clamshell holders and display.

Also, the new elements are intentded for the Pick-A-Model builds so if you’re thinking of filling a whole cup full of a certain new part, think again. I’ve heard that LEGO Store employees will be strictly enforcing this policy so you can’t get a whole cup of a certain element as you could before the changes were made. You can still add the Pick-A-Model elements to a regular Pick-A-Brick cup but just don’t overdo it.

For the second quarter, the LEGO Pick-A-Models that you can choose from are two giraffes or a biplane. The giraffes contain 36 pieces and the biplane has 24 pieces. Check out the images below to see some LEGO elements you can get this quarter.

Unannounced Sales at LEGO Brand Stores

Today my LEGO Brand Store in Fashion Valley has an unannounced sale going ahead of the start of Double VIP Points tomorrow. There are many fairly older sets that are all 20% off which last until March 27. The sales are only in stores and not on [email protected] I believe other LEGO Stores across the US also have similar deals.

Also, at least in my store in Fashion Valley, the very popular LEGO Disney Frozen Elsa’s Sparkling Ice Castle (41062) is back in stock at regular price of $39.99 and I expect those to be sold pretty quickly. You may want to call in and check if there’s any left in stock before heading out.

2015 First Quarter LEGO Store Pick-A-Brick Wall

New Pick-A-Brick

I finally had time to get to my local LEGO Store to check out the new elements on the Pick-A-Brick Wall. During each quarter of the year, you can expect some new stuff showing up on the wall that you may not have seen before. Some of them are labeled with themes that the parts would go well with and for this quarter they include LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Friends as well as some that go well with anything in general. From my understanding, these elements are sent to LEGO Stores throughout the US so you may also have seen them already.

For elements that go well with LEGO Star Wars, we have light bluish gray modified 1x1s with handle, trans-orange cheese slopes, trans-red round 1x1s, trans-neon yellow round 2x2s, and black 1x2s with clip.

For the LEGO Friends elements, we got pink 1×2 tiles, lavender 1×2 plates, lime green 1×1 studs, dark bluish gray modified 1x2s with arms, light bluish gray 2×2 tiles, white modified 1×2 grills, and trans-green round 1x1s.

LEGO Store Fashion Valley Community Window by monsterbrick

LEGO Store Fashion Valley Community Window - Monsterbrick

The Community Window at the Fashion Valley LEGO Store has been recently changed out and this month it features the work of Matt Armstrong, aka monsterbrick. For this month, Matt has brought in some of his animal-type builds including a cobra, elephant, spider, and mouse. If you have Beautiful LEGO 2: Dark, which we reviewed back in October, you may notice a couple of the builds have been featured in the book.

Beautiful LEGO 2: Dark

The cobra build named Danger Danger! was created in 2009 and consists of about 500 pieces, mostly with claw elements. If you stretch it all out, it is a little more than 5 1/2 feet in length.

The other build that’s been featured in Beautiful LEGO 2: Dark is the spider. It is named No…Lil Miss Muffet Lives Down the Street and it consists of about 100 pieces.

Finally, the last animal is the Mecha-Elephant. What’s cool about this build is that the legs are from the style of the Star Wars AT-AT. The rest of the elephant is just Matt’s style.

I’ve seen images of these builds online before but to see them in person is totally different. Just the sheer size and detail of these builds are truly amazing. If you’re in San Diego, I suggest go checking out the Community Window for yourself. Also if you’re lucky to have a LEGO Store near you, go check out some builds of local … Continue

LEGO Store Exclusive 2014 Holiday VIP Shopping Event

LEGO Store Exclusive Holiday 2014 VIP Shopping Event

The invitations for the LEGO Store Exclusive Holiday 2014 VIP Shopping Event have started to be sent out to eligible LEGO VIP members. The invitation-only VIP shopping event will be held on November 22nd at 9:00am and it allows guests to take advantage of some special holiday offers ahead of Black/”Brick” Friday weekend.

Last year, there were some freebies including free Holiday Pick-A-Brick box, a poster, and a bracelet. There were also peel-off cards to reveal a special offer during the event such as a free set, keychain, or a shopping spree. I can’t confirm if LEGO will be doing the same thing for this year or not.

From what I’ve heard, the LEGO VIP members who have spent a certain amount during a period of time were invited in the shopping event. There are some restrictions to the event like a $5000 limit and no more than five of any single set may be purchased.

Did any of you guys get invited to the 2014 LEGO Shopping Event too?

Fourth Quarter LEGO Build-A-Minifigure Station Elements

LEGO Store Fourth Quarter Build-A-Minifigure parts

It’s fall and that means the new fourth quarter Build-A-Minifigure bar elements are now available at LEGO Brand Stores. There are a lot of new items that you can choose from for your minifigures. Let’s check out what’s new to the BAM bar, shall we?

The first thing is the torsos that are offered. One torso is the sunset torso that’s been in a few LEGO City sets. There are also a couple female torsos from LEGO Castle Kingdoms. The torso of the Artist from the Series 4 Collectible Minifigures series is also available.

For the leg pieces, there is a Witch dress piece and Surfer shorts (thanks Purple Dave) from Series 2 Collectible Minifigures and a fur leg piece from the Ice Fisherman from Series 5. There’s also another leg piece that I can’t recognize at this time. Maybe some of you readers can recognize it. If you can, leave it in the comments below.

With the Build-A-Minifigure station, you also get some head gear to go with your minifigs including a Santa hat, a witch hat, a cowboy hat, and a Aldrich Killian brown hairpiece.

Finally, the minifigures have some accessories to go along with them. Some of these accessories include a pizza, pretzel, a pink wand, messenger bag, camera, and a clear goblet.

If you have a LEGO Store nearby, you may want to check out the Build-A-Minifigure station to see all the new parts that are being offered. Most LEGO Stores will have a similar selection but your mileage may vary. I’ll … Continue

San Diego Comic Con 2014 LEGO Store Community Window

Fashion Valley LEGO Store Community Window

San Diego Comic Con 2014 is upon us and my LEGO Store in Fashion Valley has gotten into the mood as well with their latest community window change out. This month’s window is centered towards the geekiness that is Comic Con with contributions by fellow SandLUG members Jason and Mariann. Jason, known for his CubeDudes creations, has built a number of pop culture characters from different TV series and movies including Batman: The Animated Series, Doctor Who, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Avengers, and Star Wars. If you look closely, you can also see Baymax from the upcoming Walt Disney animated movie, Big Hero 6. As you can see, he has done an amazing job on all the characters and it shows with a bit of imagination and creativity, you can build almost anything.

Mariann’s contribution to the window is her mosaic portrait of Doctor Who’s 11th Doctor, Matt Smith. In this type of mosaic, she is able to capture the portrait using the sides of the LEGO elements rather than the traditional studs up method of creating a mosaic. You can check out how Mariann created the portrait on her Flickr where she shows a blueprint of the complicated process. I’ve seen images of the mosaic before but to see it in person makes it even cooler.

If you’re going to be here for SDCC 2014, I highly recommend checking out the community window at the LEGO Store here in Fashion Valley Mall. You can easily take the trolley from the convention center … Continue
