The LEGO House The Brick Moulding Machine (40502) Exclusive Set Officially Revealed

LEGO has unveiled another LEGO House exclusive earlier today, following the likes of last year’s LEGO House The Wooden Duck (40501). And just like its predecessor, the LEGO House The Brick Moulding Machine (40502) celebrates another piece of LEGO history that highlights the company’s manufacturing process of the iconic brick.

LEGO House The Brick Moulding Machine

For those of you who have already visited the famed House of the Brick in Billund, Denmark, you have probably noticed that this LEGO House The Brick Moulding Machine (40502) set is the replica of the one that is found on the ground floor of the LEGO House. The set comes in a lime green color scheme similar to its larger real-life counterpart and comes at a sizeable 7.4 x 11.4 inches.

The actual LEGO Brick Moulding machine located on the ground floor of the LEGO House in Billund.

The LEGO House The Brick Moulding Machine (40502) comes in at 1,205 pieces and is expected to retail for 599 DK (around $100) starting March 4 when the doors of the LEGO House opens once again to the public. For more information about The LEGO House, you may visit their website right here.

Here’s LEGO’s official press release.

LEGO® House reveals new LEGO House Exclusive product:
40502 – The Brick Moulding Machine

LEGO House The Brick Moulding Machine

The newest product in the Limited Edition series of LEGO® House Exclusives is soon to be available at the LEGO House Retail Store in Billund, Denmark.

Ever since the opening of LEGO® House, it has been an important milestone for LEGO House to create exclusive products because we believe they add significantly to the experience of visiting LEGO House – the pinnacle LEGO experience.

The first three exclusive products were the LEGO House Architecture set, the LEGO House Tree of Creativity, and the LEGO House Dinosaurs.

One thing is remaking our iconic models in LEGO House into LEGO sets. But since we also want to tie the LEGO Group and not least the LEGO Group history closely to LEGO House it made a lot of sense for us to introduce this new series that we call: The LEGO House Limited Editions. The Wooden Duck is the first item in the series of LEGO House Limited Editions.

We are now happy to announce the latest product in our Limited Edition series – The Brick Moulding Machine!

The Brick Moulding Machine is representing an era in the history of the LEGO Group going from producing toys in wood into plastic. It is the story about putting all efforts into one focus and leaving your core competencies behind to explore the new possibilities and technologies in producing toys with plastic materials.

The first machine arrived in Billund in 1947 and it took up to four people to manually operate one single machine efficiently.

Today the LEGO Group has around 1,000 moulding machines operating all over the world and one LEGO employee can operate 32 machines. The Billund facility alone produces 1,360 LEGO elements each second from these machines.

In LEGO House guests can experience a real-life moulding machine up close. The green machine is identical to the moulding machines found at the LEGO production sites in Denmark, Hungary, Mexico, and China. The difference, however, is that it has a special custom-made mould designed to only contain six bricks. Standard moulds produce many more bricks.

Did you know?

• The first moulding machine is bought in 1946 after Ole Kirk Kristiansen attended a demonstration of a plastic injection moulding machine at a fair in Copenhagen.

• In 1949 the LEGO® Group’s plastics department manufactures various kinds of toys. Among these are the company’s first plastic bricks, which are marketed under the name “Automatic Binding Bricks”.

• On 28 January 1958 at 1:58 pm, the modern LEGO brick is born when a patent for the unique clutch power is secured.

• In 1960 the second-generation owner, Godtfred Kirk Christiansen decided to put all eggs in one basket and purely focus on the LEGO brick.

• A real-life moulding machine can be found in LEGO House where guests can see it up close. It is identical to the ones in other LEGO production sites but is custom-made to only produce six bricks at a time and run at a slower pace.

• In the 60s and 70s, Godtfred Kirk Christiansen initiated decommissioned moulds to be cast into the concrete foundations of new factories in Billund to prevent them from falling into wrong hands.

• In the History Collection in LEGO House, you can also find decommissioned moulds hiding in the floor for visitors to see.

Facts about 40502 Brick Moulding Machine

• The Brick Moulding Machine represents an era in the LEGO Group going from producing wooden toys into plastic toys.

• The 1205-piece model measurements are the following: 7.4” (19 cm) tall, 5.9” (15 cm) deep, and 11.4” (29 cm) wide. 

• Base comprises printed tiles with the words ‘LEGO® House’ and ‘The Brick Moulding Machine’. 

• Ideal for fans of LEGO® building and collectors of toy memorabilia.
Suitable for ages 10 and up. 

• Price: 599 DKK

• This set is only available in LEGO House.

First Image of LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi Battle at the Ancient Village (76177) Box Art Revealed

It looks like the leaky faucet is at it again. We’re now getting new information from brick street and it seems that we now have our first look at a new LEGO tie-in set that focuses on Marvel Studios’ second MCU film of the year. Check out the box art image of the LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi Battle at the Ancient Village (76177).

Just to be accurate, this particular image was shared over at Instagram and does not feature any confidential watermark, suggesting that this was not lifted from any preliminary catalog. The following image also suggests that it was taken from the set’s actual box art suggesting that the set might be already in the wild, or tucked away in any third-party LEGO reseller warehouse. In any case, if the LEGO brick police should request us to remove this image, we will comply promptly.

As a gentle reminder and in case you are wary of spoilers, you are free to stop that mouse from scrolling down, and you may hit that back button anytime.

And with those things out of the way, check out this first box art image of the LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi Battle at the Ancient Village (76177) set.

If you recall, Shang-Chi is this year’s second MCU film for the big screen. The movie is slated to be released this July, and seeing this set out in the wild given at this time does not come so much as a surprise. For starters, we already have the LEGO Marvel Black Widow’s Helicopter Chase (76162) released last year, and this is even way before we have the Black Widow film making its theatrical entry this May. So seeing this LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi set at this point is somehow expected.

The Battle at the Ancient Village (76177) set features a dragon in a white and red color scheme, on what seems to be a portal of some kind. The brick-built dragon itself is central to the set and features some of the distinct Asian features of this mythological creature. According to sources, Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi will most likely introduce these mystical creatures in the MCU multiverse including the extraterrestrial villain Fin Fang Foom.

The LEGO Marvel Shang-Chi Battle at the Ancient Village (76177) is rumored to retail for $40 – a pretty steep price considering its modest size. However, it comes with five minifigures which include Shang-Chi, Xialing, Wenwu (or the Mandarin as the legendary leader of the Ten Rings), the enigmatic Death Dealer, and a figure of a still to be revealed creature named Morris.

Since this is out in the wild already, we can cross our fingers and hopefully see this set’s official images anytime soon. Let us know what you think about this set in the comments section below.

Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man: No Way Home Finally Confirmed

After a series of amusing misdirects from its cast, Marvel Studios have finally dropped the real, working title of its next film in Jon Watt’s Spider-Man trilogy. The Spider-Man: No Way Home is confirmed to be arriving in cinemas this Christmas. Watch the teaser trailer below.

If you recall, there was some kind of hype-building going on these past few days coming from Tom Holland (playing Peter Parker), Zendaya (MJ), and Jacob Batalon (Ned Leeds). Each of them gave their “take” on what could be the working title on this next Spider-Man film. However, it was immediately clear that these are just their way of playing with words, hinting at the idea of an impending title reveal anytime soon. And like clockwork, Marvel Studios has just released the film’s official title, delivered through a short skit about the trio’s predisposition for spoilers.

The title is definitely something to think about, and many Marvel fans took it to the internet on what this could reveal about the movie’s plot. One key element in the reveal teaser is the cryptic whiteboard found in the hallway. The board seems to reflect a brainstorming session for the film’s possible titles, riddled with enigmatic symbols and phrases that somehow relate to the film’s title. Like a trail of bread crumbs, these pieces of clues may eventually lead to what Peter Parker has thought since the previous films – the existence of the MCU multiverse. And considering that the Spider-Man: No Way Home evokes a certain feeling of frustration and despair for not finding one’s way back home, we can somehow theorize that our friendly neighborhood web-crawler has to traverse so many “worlds” (or alternate realities, perhaps) to find his very own.

With more than 4 million views as of this posting, the hype for this film is continuously building. We can also expect that the months leading to its premiere will be riddled with other promotions and tie-in merchandise to build on its publicity. LEGO for one has consistently released tie-in sets for the two previous Spider-Man installments in the form of the ATM Heist Battle (76082) and Beware the Vulture (76083) sets from Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Molten Man Battle (76128), Hydro-Man Attack (76129) and Stark Jet and the Drone Attack (76130) sets from Spider-Man: Far From Home. And given a December theatrical screening for Spider-Man: No Way Home, then we can assume that any LEGO-related sets will be revealed sometime in the third quarter of this year.

Whatever is the case, these upcoming LEGO tie-in sets will surely reveal some aspects of the film’s storyline and hopefully give us a glimpse of what to expect from this third installment. For now, let’s just see where the trail of bread crumbs and whiteboard clues will lead us.

So what do you think will this third Spider-Man film be all about? Does it really point us to the MCU multiverse moving forward? And what new LEGO Spider-Man sets can we possibly expect from this film franchise? Share what you think in the comments below, and for the latest LEGO sets slated to be released, check out our list right here

Add Some DOTs and Ninjago Flair in Your Next Line of LEGO Apparel

By now it’s quite clear that LEGO is very intentional in promoting the LEGO lifestyle. And after its successful collaboration with Adidas in the form of the ZX8000 sneakers, the LEGO Group has announced its next line of LEGO apparel with the famous sportswear maker.  The Adidas x LEGO DOTs, and Adidas x LEGO Ninjago collections feature not just a pair of trendy Fortarun sneakers, but also a complemental clothing line.

Read on for LEGO’s official press statement, and check out some of these product images.

NEW DROP FROM ADIDAS AND THE LEGO GROUP CELEBRATES PLAYFUL VIBES FROM LEGO® DOTS® AND NINJAGO®

HERZOGENAURACH & BILLUND, February 24, 2021: The LEGO Group and adidas today announced the next drop from the continued partnership between this industry-leading sportswear brand and beloved toy company. Get ready for a cool new apparel collection featuring a variety of sleek colors and designs inspired by LEGO® DOTS® and LEGO® NINJAGO. The collection will be available to adidas Creative Club members from March 1st, and broad distribution from March 4th through www.adidas.com/LEGO.

The collaboration between the two brands is a multi-year partnership that aims to infuse more fun into the lives of kids and adults through playful products across apparel, hardware, and bricks. It kicked off with the AZX800 sneaker in September 2020, and since then, fans have been able to celebrate their creativity and passion for the two iconic brands in completely new ways. Most recently we saw an endearing line-up of children’s clothes and shoes all wrapped in the original four LEGO colors (red, yellow, blue, and green), and now we can add to the assortment two new collections inspired by DOTS and NINJAGO.

The adidas x LEGO DOTS collection is all about the endless creative potential of children. The collection enables them to express their personality, create their own style and show the world who they are, using colorful and fun patterns. The playful designs will spark imagination and convey a simple message to children that it’s their world, they make the rules and can make it as vivid as they like.

The adidas X LEGO NINJAGO collection includes pieces that celebrate the 10th anniversary of this LEGO play theme as well as the timeless world of classic NINJAGO. With this range, kids can leap into action and master their journey the ninja way. With vibrant designs that represent the elemental NINJAGO powers, the collection enables kids to express themselves and be a ninja. To ‘Be Ninja’ means: mastering ninja skills, being a good friend, confident, inclusive, and true to oneself. The details in the collection represent the process of mastery, the process of becoming a ninja, supporting kids in their own journey.

LEGO Ideas A Map of Middle-Earth Project Reaches 10,000 Supporters

If winning the support of the LEGO fan community is not enough for the second time, why not earn it for the third time? Such feat is now impressively accomplished by LEGO fan builder and designer Artem Biziaev with his next product idea that managed to earn the support of 10,000+ LEGO fans – the LEGO Ideas A Map of Middle-Earth.

LEGO Ideas A Map of Middle-Earth

If you recall from last week, I reported on the current status of product ideas that have achieved support already over at LEGO Ideas, even if the First 2021 LEGO Review Stage is yet to commence in April. From this listing, we can find that other projects submitted by Artem eventually entered into that elite circle of 10K product ideas, which includes Hyrule Castle (The Legend of Zelda) and Baba Yaga. And now with the inclusion of his LEGO Ideas A Map of Middle-Earth product idea, almost all of his entries virtually advance to the next level.

The LEGO Ideas A Map of Middle-Earth features a brick-built version of Tolkien’s map of Middle-Earth, highlighting the many different places that were mentioned in the author’s Lord of the Ring trilogy. And much more, doing it in such a way that makes these locations easily recognizable even at a microscale. Mordor’s black, and infamous landscape can easily be recognized in this sort of 3D map (not to mention the wicked, all-seeing eye of Sauron), including The Shire and the kingdom of Erebor. Artem also included a handful of nanofigures of some of the most popular characters in the trilogy, adding a certain play feature to his product idea. You can chart a course for Frodo and  Sam towards the land of Mordor, or you can send Pippin and Merry on a mission to Fangorn Forest.  And of course, I love how this minifigure version of Tolkien turned out with several book accessories representing the Lord of Rings series plus The Hobbit.

Here’s how Artem Biziaev describes his LEGO creation.

Hey, Lego fans!
I’m Artem. I really love The Lord of the Rings trilogy. And i’m so excited to show you my little Idea.
Before we start let me ask you: do you know that Minas Morgul is across the river from Minas Tirith? That very close! BOOM! Now you know. And can explore more…
Look at this beautiful Middle Earth Lego map! The legend on your table.
I have placed and signed all the key objects from both trilogies. Now everyone can visually explore the path of the heroes there and back again.
Also here are the pretty travelers microfigures for your convenience.
Put your micro-Frodo and micro-Sam in the Dead Swamps, Pippin and Merry in the Fangorn forest, and everyone else in Helm’s Deep – so you played the events of the Two Towers.
I hope you enjoy my Middle-earth map! 😉
Artem’s LEGO Ideas A Map of Middle-Earth product idea is the 30th project to make it to the next LEGO Ideas review stage. Congratulations and I wish him all the best!

LEGO Consults the Fan Community For Their Next LEGO Technic Set

The LEGO Group is once again tapping the LEGO fan community for inputs, and this time, for its next LEGO Technic set. Releasing it through an online survey form, LEGO is now asking the help of fans to pinpoint the next big thing in LEGO Technic.

Asking for feedback from the LEGO community is not actually new for LEGO. The LEGO Ideas platform, for example, is a great way of gauging the types of sets that customers may want in the future. However, this is one of those occasions where LEGO directly asks customers what they actually want, and in particular, with regards to what’s next in the LEGO Technic theme.

There are 11 simple questions to answer, asking fans for what particular IP brand would they like to see translated into LEGO Technic, the types of vehicles they wish to see rendered in LEGO Technic, reasons for buying LEGO Technic sets, and if adding Control+ functions will make fans more likely to buy these sets. Fans are also encouraged to share what kind of future technologies they wish to be added into LEGO Technic sets.

The survey will probably take around 5 minutes to complete, so if you can spare a few minutes, you may proceed with the survey right here. This survey link will be available until March 7 so I hope you can find time to fill it in until then. I just hope that LEGO will also find time to release its survey results. It will be interesting to see what other LEGO fans have in mind regarding future LEGO Technic sets.

LEGO Technic Sets
The LEGO Technic Liebherr R 9800 (42100) is the first-ever LEGO Technic set to incorporate the Control+ system. What other future technologies will this LEGO theme will incorporate?

LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates (43101) Box Distribution Revealed

By now, you might be aware already that the recently revealed LEGO Vidiyo theme is also getting a pretty neat line-up of minifigures called LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates (43101). Now listed over at LEGO Shop@Home, this new series of minifigures consists of 12 characters that come with a variety of seemingly random 2×2 tile pieces called BeatBits. But what could pose as a challenge for LEGO minifigure collectors is the fact that the LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates does not come packaged in the typical blind bag fashion that we are all used to, but instead comes in its first-ever boxed packaging. Feeling your way through this series is certainly not an option anymore.

However, thanks to our friend Lukas from Stone Wars, we can now have an idea of what we can expect from the LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates’  box distribution, and hopefully zero-in on the characters that we wish to get.

First off according to Lukas, the unopened larger box packaging contains exactly 24 boxes of the LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates minifigures. And we can be assured that we can get two complete series out of this.

As I’ve mentioned earlier, having these cardboard boxes for this series’ packaging virtually eliminates our chances of feeling our way in these minifigs like we’ve always done. Though I may not be exactly happy with LEGO’s choice of packaging here, I understand the company’s decision to forego the usual plastic polybags consistent with its goals of promoting sustainability.

Now the only question is, is there a way to find out which LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates minifigure are we going to get based on its distribution in an unopened box? And based on what we are seeing from Stone Wars, then it might be such the case. According to this image shared by Lukas, then we might have a pretty good grasp of what to expect.

Image courtesy of Lukas from Stone Wars.

If we can expect LEGO to be consistent with their packaging similar to their previous CMF series, then we can be sure that other than having two complete series in each box, we can also expect to get exactly two copies of the same minifigure placed side by side. Of course, this is assuming that what we have is an unopened box, to begin with. So if you’re looking at it from the top, we can expect to have:

  •  Werewolf Drummer
  • Red Panda Dancer
  • Discowboy
  • DJ Cheetah
  • Samurapper
  • Shark Singer
  • Banshee Singer
  • Cotton Candy Cheerleader
  • Genie Dancer
  • Alien Keytarist
  • Bunny Dancer
  • Ice Cream Saxophonist

We’re not sure at this time if LEGO intends to continue this form of cardboard packaging for its minifigures. I guess that it might only be for this particular series of LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates, but we just have to wait and see in the next few months.

Special thanks once again to Lukas of Stone Wars.

LEGO Celebrates the LEGO Universe 10th Year Anniversary With a Remastered Soundtrack

It has been more than a decade since we saw LEGO’s first attempt to enter the MMOG (massively multiplayer online game) arena. When the LEGO Universe opened its virtual doors to the world, it made sure that players will not just have an immersive open-world sort of experience but a great soundtrack as well. And though LEGO Universe was eventually shut down in just less than 2 years, fans of the first LEGO online game will never forget the power of its music and the genius behind it. To celebrate this musical milestone, LEGO has now released a LEGO Universe 10th year anniversary playlist that features the game’s remastered soundtrack arranged by acclaimed composes Bryan Tyler.

You can listen to the LEGO Universe 10th year anniversary soundtrack through the following video. What is neat about this video/soundtrack is that it also features several video clips, concept arts, and behind-the-scenes footage of the game itself. It’s like listening to a great album while watching a documentary at the same time.

Here’s the LEGO Group’s official press statement on this commemorative soundtrack. You can also find this soundtrack on Spotify and other music and podcast streaming platforms.

THE LEGO GROUP MARKS TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF LEGO® UNIVERSE WITH REMASTERED AND NEVER BEFORE RELEASED SOUNDTRACK

Released to coincide with Hollywood composer Brian Tyler’s appearance on LEGO Games’ Bits N’ Bricks podcast.

Billund, February 24th, 2021: In December, the LEGO Group marked the 25th anniversary of its first-ever video game with the release of the popular Bits N’ Bricks podcast series. Today, the company marks another important date with the release of the fully remastered LEGO® Universe (Original Game Soundtrack) to purchase and streaming for the first time ever. The soundtrack is accompanied by three episodes of the Bits N’ Bricks podcast looking back at the game’s development, with today’s episode focusing on conversations with composer Brian Tyler, producer Richard Dekkard, as well as a brief visit from the voice of LEGO Universe: Sir Patrick Stewart.

LEGO Universe was the company’s first-ever massively multiplayer online game launched in October 2010, with a soundtrack composed by Brian Tyler and additional music by John Harman and Richard Dekkard. Now a celebrated Hollywood composer, Tyler has composed soundtracks for huge blockbuster smashes including Avengers: Age of Ultron and Iron Man 3. The soundtrack to LEGO Universe was the first video game soundtrack he composed following soundtracks for classic films like Constantine and The Lazarus Project. It was created with the Slovak National Symphony Orchestra, but due to scheduling constraints, Tyler ended up overseeing the entire recording live from a studio in Los Angeles using video and audio streaming between the countries.

The LEGO Universe theme went on to be used at the entrance at LEGOLAND® parks across the globe and proved to be very popular with fans. Despite its popularity, the soundtrack has never been available to purchase or stream until now.

As the landmark anniversary approached, Tyler and Dekkard came together to completely remaster the score, which the LEGO Group is proud to be releasing today (Wednesday, February 24th) across popular digital music stores and streaming services. The album will also be available on YouTube featuring a special behind-the-scenes video retrospective. Patrick Stewart, who served as narrator for the game, will also appear in this video.

On the remaster, Tyler said: “I’m really proud of the music and I’m proud of the game. I am asked all the time ‘Is it going to be available? and earnestly thought to myself ‘I hope it is!’ I really wanted that for the fans, so I was not going to miss a beat in terms of helping get this out there to the world.”

To hear more about LEGO Universe’s inception, creation, launch, and eventual closure, as well as other key moments in the LEGO Group’s long, rich history in digital play and video games listen to the Bits N’ Bricks podcast. Hosted by journalist Brian Crecente and documentarian Ethan Vincent, the podcast draws on over 120 interviews and explores the many facets of LEGO gaming, from unreleased projects to beloved masterpieces.

Look out for it on all popular podcast platforms, the LEGO Games anniversary website, and YouTube.
