The April 2019 LEGO Brand Retail Store Calendar is now out. You can view the full calendar here. There’s not much on the calendar aside from events happening mainly at the LEGO Brand Retail Store. There’s Minifigure Swap Day and LEGO Life Meetings.
Note that instead of a monthly VIP model build, they now have a special build happening in April known as “Earth Day Building Event”. Registration is available in-stores. Registration begins on April 5 in-stores only. The event occurs on April 22. In the future, we may get more of these events instead of the VIP model builds.
The last monthly mini model build instructions for March 2019 is now here. This month’s build is a Mini Ship. If you missed the build, you can use pieces from your own collection to recreate this mini model.
The building instructions for the February 2019 VIP Monthly Mini Model Store build is now available! If you missed the build earlier, you can try to build your own version using pieces that you currently own. Pieces can also be purchased at the LEGO Brand Retail Store or Pick a Brick online at LEGO Shop (US | Canada | UK).
LEGO Monthly Mini Model Store builds have been going for quite a few years and they have been quite popular. Best of all , they were free. However, they became VIP exclusives not too long ago. You also have to begin registering a month in advance before you can participate in the builds.
Unfortunately, March 5-6, 2019 will be the last free monthly mini model store build. Registration starts February 15, 2019. The entire LEGO Store Monthly Mini Model Build program is ending and there will be no more new models after this date.
The LEGO VIP monthly mini model build registration for February 2019 is now open! You can register here. Next month’s LEGO model will be a yellow Caterpillar. Quantities are limited to 120 per night. Event runs from February 5-6.
