LEGO Brand Retail

LEGO Shop@Home has a free shipping offer from May 16th (yesterday) through May 31st with a purchase of $75 or more. No code necessary. No checkbox to check. I really hope that for those of you who pre-ordered the Cars sets scored the free shipping (assuming that you ordered at least $75 worth of sets AND it shipped out yesterday and not any earlier).

Also, if you’re a VIP member and order something LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean between May 16 and May 31, you’ll also get a free LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean poster with your purchase. No purchase minimum, no code, no checkbox. The only caveat is that you must be logged into your VIP account when you place your order.

And lastly, you can preorder the final three ho-hum Harry Potter sets. Scheduled to ship by June 1, the final three sets are:

The book is going to be released in 11 days on May 16th and can be preordered from Amazon for the low, low price of $12.93 as of this writing.

And in even more LEGO Harry Potter goodness, DK is also releasing an “Ultimate Sticker Collection” book on the same day. Price is $10.39.

Thanks to that guy for the heads up.

April Fools': Exclusive: 10225 Hogsmeade Village Series: Honeydukes Sweetshop

10225 Hogsmeade Village Series: Honeydukes Sweetshop

FINALLY, after weeks, if not months, of complaining that AFOL sites do not get exclusive set news, LEGO has heard our cries and seen the error of their ways. FBTB was given an exclusive scoop: 10225 Hogsmeade Village Series: Honeydukes Sweetshop is the first building in a series designed to recreate Hogsmeade, one building at a time. Next in the series is 10226 Three Broomsticks Inn, and it’s easy to speculate that we could be getting a Hog’s Head Pub (with Aberforth!) and maybe a new Shrieking Shack (new Wormtail or Lupin with the new werewolf hairpiece?)

Available exclusively through LEGO Shop@Home starting June 1, Honeyduke’s Sweetshop is priced at $89.99 for 972 pieces and has 5 minifigures, including Harry, Fred and George Weasley, and Mr. and Mrs. Flume. Honeydukes features two levels of the famous candy store, and even has the secret door to the cellar where the Weasley twins and Harry sneak into the village! Satisfy your sweet tooth with the first set in the Hogsmeade Village Series: Honeydukes Sweetshop!

At least now we know why the range of HP sets at Toy Fair was so anemic. More news on this awesome series as we get it!

that guy over in the forums spotted some new additions to the clearance section over at LEGO S@H. Some interesting keychains and magnet sets have been added, including the ones pictured above. These magnet sets are the last ones to not be glued together.

The keychains range from $.98 to $3.48. The magnet sets are either $7.48 or $10.48.

The March LEGO store calendar shows some new Star Wars magnets and keychains coming out in early March, including:

    >>Cad Bane keychain
    >>Boba Fett (8097) keychain
    >>Winter Gear Anakin, Talz, ARC 170 Pilot magnet set

Also, Andi reports finding a new Star Wars magnet set a in the Frankfurt, Germany LEGO store. This one’s got Ben Kenobi, an AT-AT driver, and a Tie Fighter pilot. They are glued, of course, but the glue breaks down in hot water, so not all is lost.
