Details on 5001623 Jor-El Polybag, June In Store Events

June Store Calendar Page 1

Some details have emerged about obtaining the Jor-El minifig we reported on earlier this week. This post on Eurobricks shows the June store calendar with Jor-El displayed as one of the highlighted items. It will be a LEGO Brand Retail promotion and the only way to get it is to make a purchase in store or at LEGO Shop@Home for $75 or more. There’s nothing listed about the purchase requiring Super Heroes sets, so any purchase should net you the minifigure. Offer is good from June 1-25 or while supplies last.

There is one other item of interest on the calendar. On Wednesday June 19, they will be hosting a special in-store building event where you can build the Man of Steel. This is in addition to their regular Monthly Mini Build. Build event is open to kids age 6-14 only and limited to approximately 150 per store.

And finally, on Friday June 22, the monthly LEGO Club meeting will be DC Super Heroes themed.

LEGO Store Lord of the Rings Scavenger Hunt

LEGO Store Promo

I received this email earlier today and posting it here in case you didn’t. In a nutshell, you can participate in a LOTR-themed scavenger hunt inside your local LEGO store with a wide range of activities. The link to print your own map of Middle-earth seems to be broken, but hopefully it will be up soon. Other than the hunt, you have a chance to win a free LOTR set. It may not be the Build-a-Bilbo scavenger hunt at ComicCondor, but it’s probably worth checking out if you have kids and need something to do. The promotion lasts through August 5th.

LEGO Shop@Home End of Year Clearance Sale

FREE LEGO Ninjago Booster Pack with any LEGO Shop Purchase of $75 or more. Valid 12.26.11 - 1.31.12

It’s the 26th on the east coast, so it’s safe to post this now.

Numeric values shown are dollar discounts off MSRP. I can’t stress that enough.

LEGO Shop@Home sent over a list of all the items that are discounted for their end of year clearance. Numeric values shown are dollar discounts off MSRP. I can’t stress that enough. The list makes no distinction of what was available or unavailable before the sale started so you may see some items that have been long gone appear below. Prices are good online and in-store so you may get luckier at your local LEGO Brand Retail store. For your convenience, I’ve organized the list according to theme and tried linking directly to the product.

I apologize in advance if the sale prices aren’t as exciting as you were hoping. I didn’t make the sale; I just report on them.

LEGO Brand Retail Store Grand Opening at Mission Viejo, CA

The Shops at Mission Viejo will now have a LEGO Brand Retail store to add to their list of … shops. The grand opening event is happening all weekend starting today through Sunday October 9. A master model builder will be on hand and you can help construct an “8-foot tall” SpongeBob Squarepants. Seeing as to how he’s sitting, I’m not entirely sure that it will actually end up being 8 feet tall. They will also be giving away a set of store opening exclusive minifigures and t-shirts. If history is any indication, the minifigures will be given away with a minimum purchase to the first 100 or so customers on Saturday, and the t-shirt the same way on Sunday. The address to The Shops and store hours are:

555 The Shops at Mission Viejo
Mission Viejo, CA 92691
(949) 347-6867

Store Hours:
Monday – Friday: 10:00 am – 9:00 pm
Saturday: 10:00 am – 7:00 pm
Sunday: 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

The Northbrook, IL LEGO Store is having a grand re-opening this weekend February 18 through February 20. The Northbrook store is re-opening to a new location in Northbrook Court. As part of the celebration, there will be a Master Builder Event where participants can help build an 8-ft. tall Buzz Lightyear.

Check out for more information or call the Northbrook store directly at (847) 291-9520.

As if southern California didn’t have enough LEGO Stores (which we don’t honestly, I mean what does it take to get a store in Los Angeles, like on the west side, or, even better, like in the south bay area?), LEGO is opening up a store in Costa Mesa and will be having their Grand Opening event on March 11 through March 13. As part of the celebration, there will be a Master Builder Event to help build a Yoda model. It’s bit far on the calendar but seeing as to how I’ll probably be attending that event, I’ll post a reminder about it the closer we get to the day.
