LEGO Shop October 2014 Calendar – Double VIP Points & 2014 Holiday Set

Here’s a peek at the LEGO Shop October 2014 calendar. There’s several new products as well as some familiar promotions happening again. As expected, the double VIP points event has returned. The first of the annual holiday set promotions will also begin in October.

This year you can get a holiday set featuring a workshop with 2 elves with a $99 purchase. There will also be a similar promotion in November for another holiday set. Both will complement the upcoming LEGO Creator Santa’s Workshop (10245).

The Halloween set will be similar to LEGO Minifigure Graduation (850935). It features a Dracula minifigure from the Monster Fighter theme with a coffin on a cake topper. The set should retail for $7.99.

LEGO Shell Series 2 Sets Discovered

The second wave of LEGO Shell promotional sets have arrived in Singapore. Every 2 weeks, a new Shell set can be purchased after buying gas at a Shell gas station.

Singapore is the first country to get this new wave, but it’s speculated that it will eventually be released in all countries that got the first wave. Unfortunately, since the United States didn’t get the first wave, we probably won’t be getting the second one either.

LEGO Jurassic World

It was initially thought that Hasbro had secured the construction toy license for Jurassic World. With the movie pushed back to 2015, speculation is the agreement expired and LEGO stepped in to secure it.

The star of the movie, Chris Pratt, talked about approving the look of his minifigure in a previous podcast. This is great news since the retired LEGO Dino sets from 2012 have skyrocketed in price.
