September 2019 LAN Haul

September is coming to a close, so the time has come to share my latest LEGO® set acquisitions. This batch is mostly compliments of the LEGO® Ambassador Network (LAN). I received three awesome kits in this shipment, two of which are fairly substantial. I also made a couple of purchases of my own. With out further delay, let’s take a look at my September 2019 LAN Haul.

To begin, the set that I am the most excited about the LEGO® Ideas Tree House (21318). I covered the official release of this set last summer. In that article, I talked a bit about my affinity for this set based on some of my childhood dreams. This tree house is epic, and I love that it comes with both summer and autumn foliage. Given that fall is now arriving in my neck of the woods, I might just build the seasonal variant first.

Next up is the Jurassic Park: T. rex Rampage (75936). This set was announced back in June, and the Minifigures spoke to me immediately. Jurassic Park is one of my all-time favorite movies. I have loved the Jurassic World LEGO® sets, but to get the original, iconic park gates in a set is like a dream come true. Now, if only we could get a Visitor’s Center and a Ford Explorer…

The final set included in the LAN portion of my haul is the Hidden Side Shrimp Shack Attack (70422). This set made my LEGO® wish list for its general applicability and MOC potential in my brick city. Additionally, I am curious about the AR aspect of Hidden Side. These sets will make fun Halloween season reviews, n’est pas?

In addition to my LAN haul, I also made my own purchase earlier in the month. The LEGO® Store ran a freebie promotion in which you could get a small Hidden Side set. I already reviewed that freebie (the Newbury Juice Bar). However, in order to get it, I bought the Paranormal Intercept Bus 3000 (70423). I love the look of this set, and I think it will look great either as a proper school bus MOC, or a dilapidated bus in Apocalypseburg. This purchase also came with a BrickHeadz bee freebie, and the Paranormal Intercept Bus got me double VIP points.

Finally, my impulse buy for the month was Unikitty’s Sweetest Friends EVER (70822). I was at Walmart, and this set was being liquidated for $5.00. That is 65% off. I wanted the ice cream cone character, and the price was good.

  • You should definitely do the treehouse first. That’s the one I’m most excited about! This month, I saw a bunch of the Lego Mars mission sets on sale at Target, so I finally bought a bunch of those.

    • Yeah, the concensus on my social media accounts is that the tree house should be first 😉 . Have fun with those Mars sets! Which ones did you get?

      • The little space plane, the space shuttle, the space station, and the people pack. I’m really, really excited about the people pack. I remember what you said in your review about it not being super helpful for a Lego city, but I’m more interested in building a Lego space colony than a city, so I think the figures will be useful for me.

      • Awesome! Yeah, those characters would be awesome in a space colony.
