Flickr user TooMuchDew has posted scans of the new LEGO Store Calendar: Front / Back
(Thanks to TooMuchDew for keeping us up to date yet again).
I have never understood why these calendars aren't posted on S@H or some part of the LEGO site. They are the only company I can think of that creates promotional material and then hides it.
Looks like no Star Wars Lego's next month. Hopefully in August.
@Schmopiesdad: They are on the site. You have to look under Lego Stores, then pick your country, pick your store, click News and Events, under Lego Store Calendar you'll see a link to the current months calendar
starfire2: Star Wars is usually August 1st.
It looks like the best deal here is the free Kingdoms Target Practice if you spend $75 or more. To bad I already spent all my money :(@TBOC - Thanks for the heads up, I'll have my calendar marked for that date ;)
Jarod98: Your welcome!It's also fair to note that you can get a Black Le mans racer for free with $35+ order of anything LEGO in the USA (Lego Shop) I got one in my order after ordersing Hogwarts and The Forbidden Forest.
Collectormom, Thanks. That is helpful to know. I live two hours from a retail store so that should help me plan trips better. I wish the store sales team could have offered that when asked.
Have been holding off buying Diagon Alley. Looks like I will be buying it in July!! An extra 75 points
Thanks for posting this. I was planning to go to the Lego store tomorrow to buy either the Pet Shop or Diagon Alley - now I know which one to get and which one to wait on.
The problem with the website-version of the calendar is that LEGO's web team are pretty useless when it comes to updating it ... they are currently handing out the printed calendar for JULY in the US stores; on the web pages for the US stores you can currently download the calendar for JUNE; while on the pages for the UK stores you can still only download the calendar for MAY ...
Does anybody have a scan of the calendar currently being handed out in the UK stores? Do we think the Diagon Alley offer will be global or just for the US?
In the Milton Keynes store, they have run out of JUNE calendars, but don't have the JULY ones in yet.
Anybody know what the "special savings" are when you come dressed as your favorite character? The front says to check the back, but there's not any more details there either.
^ maybe 10% off?
Not that good.
I contacted LEGO earlier; they've just updated the calendar for the UK Stores, from the MAY version to the JUNE version.http://cache.lego.com/upload/contentTemplating/StoresEvents/otherfiles/1033/download10C80E2265C506AEA76EAD8557B3DCE8.pdfThey weren't sure when the JULY version for the UK would be available.
^bluemoose - I think there is a "method to their madness": I think the intent is to have the current month on the website (which they DON"T want to be handing out in the store), and the next month in the store for handing out. When I was in the Boston, MA area, traveling, the store manager was quick to go remove the current month store calendars that were at the service center in the mall - didn't want too many customers finding them and the coupons on them.I have noticed that some months, certain areas (countries) don't end up with a posted calendar. Sometimes I think it might be because of event changes that happen after the calendar is complied.
Oh good. Now I can get the target practice set more easily now; none of my Targets carry the set...
