While the new design largely mirrors the one in place until earlier this week, regular visitors will spot that it’s shifted some things around. Shortcuts traditionally placed just below the top menu – such as ‘sale & offers’ – now reside under the ‘shop’ tab, for instance, while the ‘change region’ button has been moved to the bottom of the page.
The net result is essentially that rather than hovering over a tab to see a list of themes, you’ll now need to click through several menus to browse the current portfolio of sets. It sounds like more hassle, but it’s actually a much more straightforward and concrete design than the hover-menu of old.
Importantly, none of the functionality we’ve grown accustomed to with LEGO.com has vanished. You can still log into your VIP account, check your points balance and redeem rewards; you can still browse all the current gifts-with-purchase on the sale & offers page; and you can still browse by theme, interest and so on.
There’s one extra search function in there, too: you can now browse sets by price range, from under £20 all the way up to over £200. That should come in handy if you’re shopping with a particular budget in mind, but are perhaps undecided on what exactly to buy.
Head over to LEGO.com to check out the refreshed design for yourself. If you choose to make any purchases while you’re there, Brick Fanatics will earn a small commission that allows us to keep bringing you the latest and greatest LEGO content. Thank you!
