LEGO Holiday 2014 Sales & Deals Online

With there being eight zillion different LEGO sets currently available and twice as many websites out there selling them, it can be a daunting task to swim through the items out there and find the best deals. That’s why I put together a catch-all “LEGO Holiday Sales and Deals” post last year, and it was so popular that I decided to put together another fresh one for this year. In the days leading up to Christmas, deals come and go fast furiously, so I’ll try to keep this post as up-to-date as possible. Here’s the hottest LEGO sales that I’ve found online right now…

The LEGO Movie Benny's Spaceship Spaceship SPACESHIP 70816 BoxThe LEGO Movie Benny’s SPACESHIP! $79.99 (reg. $99.99) 20% Off!

My sentimental favorite set of 2014 is the retro Spaceship from the LEGO Movie. I wrote a long and exhaustive review of Benny’s Spaceship when it was released during the summer, where I ramble on about how terrific the set is for paragraphs on end, so be sure to check that out if you haven’t read it yet.

But if you or your child love the LEGO Movie, I don’t see how you can resist LEGO 70816. This is a set that will be selling for hundreds upon hundreds of dollars once it’s retired, so $79.99 shipped is a crazy low price for it.

11/28/2014 Update: It’s Black Friday 2014, but there are surprisingly few true “deals” to be found online!

As for as Amazon sales go, there’s really only one particularly enticing deal this morning…

60008 LEGO City Museum Break-In SetLEGO City Museum Break-In 60008 Set $41.99 (reg. $69.99) 40% Off!

Matching the Target sale price for Black Friday, Amazon  has the 563 piece 60008 LEGO City Museum Break-In set for $42 and free shipping. My Target was already out of this set at 10AM this morning, but Amazon saved me from disappointment with their price-match. I expect this set to sell out within a few more hours, as it’s one of the more action-packed LEGO City sets and a great deal, so jump on this now if you want it.

LEGO Superman Man of Steel Jor-El Minifigure PolybagMeanwhile, over on the online LEGO Shop you can get a free LEGO Flashback Shredder or Jor-El minifigure polybag with any purchase of a LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or LEGO DC Super Heroes product. These promos are long since gone from the LEGO Stores, so it’s pretty sweet to see them show up as unannounced free promos in time for Black Friday! When you add an eligible product to your basket, these minifigures appear in your basket automatically as well–nice surprise, LEGO!

Combined with the free shipping on any item this weekend, that means you can buy a LEGO TMNT Keychain or Superman keychain or whatever–even out of stock ones–and get the free promo minifigures and the keychains shipped to your door for under 5 bucks each! That’s a pretty crazy deal considering you had to spend at least $50 in qualifying purchases to get these figures previously! Many of the keychains on the online LEGO Store are already sold out, however, so act fast if you wanna score on this opportunity.

I’ll continue to post fresh sales on the Bricks and Bloks Facebook Page, so if you want to receive those alerts, make sure to ‘Like’ Bricks and Bloks on Facebook so that you see it on your Newsfeed.

And if you see a great online deal that I haven’t added to this post yet, feel free to leave a comment here or post on our Facebook wall to let your fellow LEGO fanatics know all about it!

LEGO Minifigures Series 13 71008 Fully Revealed & Photos!

LEGO Minifigures Series 13 71008 Fully Revealed Photos

‘Twas the night before Thanksgiving (at least for us North American folks), and I expected things to be pretty quiet on the LEGO news front. But it seems that LEGO had other ideas! Or at least, LEGO Germany did! Because earlier today, the German LEGO website temporarily uploaded images from the first LEGO 2015 catalog–including the first gorgeous, hi-res photo of LEGO Minifigures Series 13 71008! The characters in the set are exactly what we expected, but knowing their names and seeing their glory are two different things…

LEGO Birds 21301 LEGO Ideas 2015 Set Revealed & Photos!

LEGO Birds 21301 Box LEGO Ideas January 2015

Traditionally not a LEGO fan, lately LEGO Ideas is striking all the right chords with my wife! First came the awesome (and quickly sold-out) LEGO Research Institute 21110 set, which appealed to my wife professionally (with her being a science teacher and all). And now, the latest fan-designed set plays on my wife’s favorite recreational interest: birding! Coming in January 2015–LEGO Birds 21301, the ninth LEGO Ideas set!

LEGO Simpsons Series 2 Minifigures: Snake Frink Smithers Patty!

LEGO Simpsons Minifigures Comic Book Guy and Snake Head Prototypes

Though we are likely still several months away from LEGO officially announcing the 71009 LEGO Simpsons Series 2 Minifigures collection, we already confirmed the existence of this series via prototypes discovered overseas. While the sellers putting almost unquestionably-stolen items up for sale on Taobao are absolutely to be condemned, the prototype photos that they’ve uploaded are a good source of information, as now we know an additional five minifigures that will be part of the LEGO The Simpsons Minifigures Series 2, including LEGO Comic Book Guy, Smithers and Professor Frink!

LEGO sets are one of of the hottest holiday toys of 2014, and that means that every retailer wants some of our LEGO dollars this holiday shopping season! While Toys R Us had the Rocket Raccoon polybag this weekend and the LEGO Store will have their own Ice Skating 2014 Holiday Promo set for Brick Friday, but this week Target is getting in on the action themselves! While the set has been available in limited quantities elsewhere this fall, the LEGO Snowman 30197 polybag set will be a free promo with purchase at Target stores this week!

LEGO Marvel Rocket Raccoon Minifigure Polybag Review & Photos

LEGO Rocket Raccoon Polybag Review

The amount of Rocket Raccoon toys and collectibles available at retail this year is surreal to me. As a lifelong Rocket Raccoon fanboy, I never thought the day would come that any piece of Rocket Raccoon merch would show up in a retail store–much less dozens of Rocket Raccoon figures. But thanks to the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, Rocket Raccoon is now a star for eternity. And as such, he gets an honor previously reserved only for headliner Marvel characters like Thor and Iron Man–his own LEGO minifigure polybag! Is the LEGO Rocket Raccoon polybag worth your five bucks (or ten bucks if you’re buying Rocket online)?

10246 LEGO Detective’s Office Modular Building Set Photos!

LEGO Detective's Office 10246 Set Contents Front Facade

When grainy photos of the box for the 2015 LEGO Detective’s Office 10246 Modular Building leaked out earlier this week, I did my very best to talk about the set without actually going into any level of detail about it. Why? Because I was saving myself for the beautiful, hi-res images of the LEGO 10246 Dectective’s Office that I knew were only a few days away! Thankfully, I don’t have to exercise restraint anymore–the LEGO Detective’s Office modular building has finally been fully revealed, and now I can talk about the set freely in all its glory!

LEGO Rocket Raccoon Minifigure Exclusive Released in the US!

Rocket Raccoon LEGO Marvel Minifigure Exclusive Polybag Set

The second most frequently-asked question I’ve gotten from LEGO fans this fall (after “When will the LEGO Frozen set be available?”) is “Will the LEGO Rocket Raccoon minifigure exclusive be available in the United States?” My answer has always been a reassuring “Hang tight; he’ll be here soon.”

At least, it has been up until now, as this week my answer has changed to: “Start hitting your local stores! The LEGO Marvel Rocket Raccoon minifigure has now been released in the United States!”

LEGO Mixels Series 4 2015 Red Infernites Tribe Sets Revealed!

41532 LEGO Mixels Series 4 Burnard 2015 Set Packaged

He who hesitates is lost–and sometimes that applies doubly to LEGO collectors. Many collectors (myself included) still weren’t totally sold on the Mixels concept when LEGO Mixels Series 1 was in stores, which has led to a lot of fans who got on-board later on lacking the tribes from LEGO Mixels Series 1. As a result, the LEGO Mixels Series 1 sets are selling for roughly triple their original cost on the aftermarket. For those who can’t afford those prices, though, fear not–LEGO is going to make sure that you too can have LEGO Mixels Infernites representation in your collection, as the Infernites return for the Winter 2015 LEGO Mixels Series 4!

2015 LEGO Simpsons Minifigures Series 2 71009 Confirmed!

Groundskeeper Willie LEGO Simpsons Minifigure Head

The absolute most controversial product that LEGO came out with in 2014–no question–was the LEGO The Simpsons Minifigures Series 71005. Some LEGO fans cried foul about a LEGO Minifigure series composed of licensed characters, while others decried that the Simpsons aren’t appropriate for LEGO. But despite the controversy, the LEGO Simpsons were a hit. And now, it’s finally confirmed that 71009 LEGO Simpsons Minifigures Series 2 is coming in 2015!

LEGO Detective’s Office 10246 2015 Modular Building Revealed!

10246 LEGO Detective's Office Modular Building Box

It is absolutely unbelievable and mind-blowing to me that it’s almost been an entire year since the magnificent LEGO Parisian Restaurant modular building set was revealed, but facts are facts, are the date means one thing for the LEGO modular buildings series: it’s almost time for the 2015 LEGO Modular Building to be fully unveiled! We’ve got a few days until the grand reveal, but over the weekend, we got our first look at the LEGO Detective Agency 10246!

LEGO Jurassic World T-Rex Figure 1

Do you ever feel like your life is missing something–like, say, a camouflaging white LEGO dinosaur made up of the spliced DNA of a Tyrranosaurus Rex, a velociraptor, a cuttlefish and a snake?

If so, rejoice–that void in your heart will finally be able to be filled next summer! The first of the LEGO Jurassic World dinosaurs–including the controversial D-Rex (Diabolus Rex) –have now been revealed!

LEGO Mixels 2015 Series 4 Glowies Figures Set Photos!

2015 LEGO Mixels Vampos 41534 Series 4 Glowies

Last night I shined the spotlight on one of the two new tribes in LEGO Mixels Series 4: the Orbitronz.

But unlike the space-themed Orbitronz Mixels, the other new-for-2015 LEGO Mixels tribe doesn’t need a spotlight shined on it–or any other kind of light, for that matter–because it generates its own!

Coming in February 2015, it’s the first LEGO Mixels Tribe to feature glow-in-the-dark parts: the LEGO Mixels Glowies Tribe!

LEGO Minecraft Minifigure-Scale Sets Released Early Online!

LEGO Minecraft The Cave 21113 Box Winter 2014 Set

From the shifting original U.S. release date for the sets to the controversy over whether the sets would be available in physical stores this year or only online, the only thing certain about the United States release of the winter 2015 LEGO Minecraft minifigure scale sets has been uncertainty. But finally, we know for sure exactly when and where the sets will first be available–because all six 2015 LEGO Minecraft sets are now available for order online!

UPDATE 11/15: The LEGO Minecraft Winter 2015 sets are officially available today, and are now restocked online!
