February 2016 LEGO Store Calendar Front

After having just been blessed with dozens of new sets being released last week, it seems a little bit perverse to be thinking of next month already–but hey, when you’re a LEGO collector, you’ve got to be constantly looking ahead, right? TLG certainly is, as they’ve once again shared next month’s store calendar a full month early.

And according to the February 2016 LEGO Store Calendar, next month we can look forward to a new free promo set, a Double VIP Points offer and more!

LEGO 2016 Sets Released! LEGO Store Photos & Report!

LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters Set Released

Because I am a crazy person, despite the fact that I stayed up last night and bought the new LEGO Brick Bank Modular Building from [email protected] at the stroke of midnight and ordered most of the rest of the new LEGO 2016 sets from Amazon with free shipping, I still set my alarm clock for bright and early so that I could be at the nearest LEGO Store first thing in the morning. Why? So that I could take photos of all the newly-released sets, of course! (And, well… maybe so my resolve could soften and I could pick up a few that I didn’t want to order online and have to wait for…)

Photos leaked out months and months ago revealing a previously-unannounced LEGO Cosmic Boy minifigure, representing one of the three founding members of the Legion of Super-Heroes. Ever since the Lightning Lad minifigure shipped with the Target exclusive cube a few weeks back, we wondered when the first of his fellow Legionnaires would join him. And now we know: the LEGO DC Justice League Cosmic Clash DVD with Cosmic Boy minifigure is now up for order!

UPDATE: The LEGO Winter Toy Shop 10249 is now available for order online! Make sure you log into your VIP account so that you can see it in the shop!

ORIGINAL: Seeing as how I’ve written a LEGO news site for the past 4 years, it’s pretty obvious that I love LEGO. But every once in a while, despite that adoration, they do something that really irks me. And unfortunately, that time has come again. Anticipation has turned to massive disappointment, as the sole 2015 LEGO Winter Village set has been officially revealed to be… a near-identical refresh of the 10199 Winter Toy Shop from five years ago?!

LEGO Bricktober 2015 Sets Revealed! Mini Modular Buildings!

LEGO Bricktober Toys R Us Store 40144

Last year, Toys R Us started what I hoped was going to be a new tradition when they debuted the amazingly cool 2014 Bricktober Mini Modular Buildings as their weekly October holiday giveaway sets!

And today, it’s been revealed that the series is continuing–the 2015 LEGO Bricktober sets include a Bakery, Hotel, Train Station… and a brick-built Toys R Us store!!

For whatever reason, it’s over a week into September 2015 and TLG still hasn’t posted the hi-res, front-and-back PDFs of the October 2015 LEGO Store Calendar. Crazy, right?

So what’s a guy to do, other than drive to the nearest LEGO Store and scan ridiculously hi-res images of the October 2015 calendar himself, right?

And thankfully, it’s worth the effort: next month is going to be a good one, with the awesome free LEGO Holiday Train promo and more!
