[UK] Free Lego with the Sun newspaper … starts 8th October


It’s almost an annual occurrence now it seems, but here in the UK, we will be treated to another series of free Lego sets from a national newspaper.  The deal starts next Saturday, the 8th October.  The sets available will be :

30053: Star Wars – Venator Class Republic Attack Cruiser

30111: Harry Potter – The Lab

30024: Creator – Truck

30141: Alien Conquest – Jetpack

30121: Cars 2 – Grem with welding gear

30082: NinjaGo – Ninja Training

30110: Harry Potter – Trolley


No word yet on the distribution channels for this or whether it’s a collect on the day only deal.  When that’s known, I’ll post that news.

The holding page on The Sun’s website can be found here.



It’s collect on the day only, from branches of WH Smiths or Toys R Us … no collecting the vouchers and sending off later.

There’s also a golden 2 x 4 brick inserted into random sets from throughout the promotion.  Each has a code on it, which you can phone a number to find out what prize you’ve won.   More details can be seen here.
