It’ll be August 1st on the east coast in a couple of hours and that means a massive amount of new products are now available for purchase. Like a ton. I’ll split this post into parts. I won’t link everything but will showcase some highlights from each theme. But first, let’s cover the promotions.

Free 30454 Shang Chi and the Great Protector Polybag

There is a free polybag offer with your Marvel purchase of $40 or more. There’s a ton of new stuff so you shouldn’t be too hard pressed to get this one.

Free Sailboat For VIP Early Access

This GWP is free with your purchase of $200. Again, with so many new products out, you should be able to score at least one provided that you’re a VIP. Card-carrying VIPs have early access to this set from August 1 through August 3 and then it will be available to non-VIPs starting August 4 while supplies last.  I believe this is the first time that a GWP is available as an Early Access perk for VIPs. This coming right after my complaints about Early Access not really being a perk, it seems that LEGO also recognizes that and is trying something new. I’m curious to see if any stock will be available for non-VIP’s come the 4th.

And now for the stuff:

LEGO Star Wars (9 new products)

75309 Republic Gunship

The UCS Republic Gunship is finally upon us. This 3,292-piece set can be yours for $349.99. My friends have told me that the initial wave of sets will have an error. Something about the imperial logo and not a republic logo. I dunno, I’ll take their word for it. If you’re looking to get one with an error, you should probably get this on day one instead of waiting.

Other products:

LEGO Harry Potter (2 products)

76395 Hogwarts: First Flying Lesson

This is really the only new product as the other one is the advent calendar and won’t show up until September 1. 76395 Hogwarts: First Flying Lesson is an anniversary set and comes with a golden Professor Quirrell. This set will cost you $29.99.

Other products:

LEGO Marvel (14 products)

There’s nothing to really highlight here because they’re sorts of ugly and undesirable. If I had to pick one though, it’s something not coming out on August 1. The Marvel Collectible Minifigure series comes out on September 1:

71031 LEGO Minifigures Marvel Studios has figures based on shows on Disney+. The real winners are Captain Falcon and Spider-Man Sorcerer Supreme. Again, these come out on September 1 and will be $4.99 per pack.

Other products:


I think the only other new product worth mentioning is the 10279 Volkswagen T2 Camper Van:

Even though it’s slightly out of scale with the T1, I still think they’d look great on display side-by-side.

I’ll just list the other themes here with some direct links:

I think that pretty much covers it.
