The LEGO Store October 2016 calendar is out in the wild (thanks Reddit!) and the monthly promo is a real treat. LEGO advent calendar fans can rejoice! The October 2016 promo is a LEGO Holiday Countdown Calendar:
The above isn’t the best picture, since the source was a small copy of the LEGO Store October 2016 calendar. If you can’t read the photo, here are the details:
Free Exclusive Holiday Countdown Calendar with purchases of $99 or more!
Build and rebuild 24 new sets as you count down to the holidays.
Offer valid October 1 – 25, 2016 or while supplies last. Offer valid on item #xxxxxx. Limit one per customer. See Brick Specialist for details.
As you can see, even I had some trouble reading the fine print on this image.
What to expect in the LEGO Holiday Countdown Calendar Promo set
From what I can see of the box front, there looks to be some traditional holiday builds like a train, candy cane, snowman, fireplace and wrapped gift.
I can also see some additional builds, like maybe a dog, an airplane and some small birds – one looks to be a American Robin. I’m sure LEGO has kept some of the better builds for the back box artwork.
While the exact builds are yet to be known, the set does come with 250 pieces. There are no minifigures in the promo, though. This means, if you need your advent calendar minifigure fix, you will still need to purchase the traditional advent calendars. These will be in stores in October as well.
Oh, and as is tradition, October is also double points month for all LEGO VIP members. If you’re not a member yet, make sure to signup so you don’t miss out on getting double points for all your purchases that month.
