Op-Ed: LEGO Releases Statement About the Availability of Some of Its LEGO City Sets

If you’re not living under a shell or in a cave lately, then it’s hard to miss what’s going around in this larger part of the world. I have to admit that I somehow felt out of tune with what’s going on recently, especially that I wasn’t around during the past week updating our blog site. Work from home as brought about by this pandemic turns out to be a more complicated, complex, and oftentimes daunting arrangement. However, far from putting the spotlight on the challenges of working from home, greater issues are pressing down on our society that is getting more traction as the days roll by. So much so that even a multinational company such as LEGO is now slowly making its stand known to the general public. As such, LEGO took to social media to weigh in on these issues and to release a statement that clarifies the availability of some of its LEGO City sets.

It is no secret on how LEGO makes its stand about the recent social unrest sweeping the US and other countries in Europe. In a rare gesture, LEGO has weighed in on the issue by stating its position on racism and racial inequality. Such issues have lately reached a tipping point prompted by the unfortunate death of George Floyd at the hands of arresting US police officers.

The LEGO fan community was quick to respond. From a broad spectrum of opinions ranging from showing support and admiration to the LEGO Group for its act of benevolence of donating $4 million in support of black children, to clear disappointment. Some fans were even saying that LEGO has now dipped its finger unto politics – an area that the company rarely dabbles with (notwithstanding the ban on the use of military guns and vehicles in its sets).

And just a day after TLG released this statement, it followed up with a gesture that shows how the company intends to keep its word. In an email sent to marketing affiliate partners, LEGO has requested the immediate removal of certain LEGO City products on their websites and other online platforms. The LEGO City sets in question were those that depict front-liners such as law enforcers and firefighters in light of the recent events that are happening across the globe. This news about LEGO’s decision in halting marketing and promotions for these LEGO City sets, needless to say, didn’t sit well with many LEGO fans. With some thinking that LEGO might also plan to remove them from store shelves indefinitely. As a result, LEGO immediately released the following statement.

Taken for what it is, LEGO makes it clear that it has no plans of removing these LEGO City sets from their stores and other third-party retailers, and does not intend to do so for such reasons. It also reiterates what it said in their email that they are temporarily stepping on the breaks on the digital advertising of these sets, with no mention of when they will actively promote it again.

In case you’re curious, here’s a screenshot of the sets in question. I did not provide affiliate links for them out of respect for LEGO’s request but feel free to check them out at LEGO Shop@Home.

LEGO City
The list of LEGO City sets that were discouraged to be marketed or advertised temporarily.

In spite of how we feel about it, I’m personally glad that LEGO has no plans of pulling out these sets from their stores eventually. I have to agree with some LEGO fans when they say that these LEGO City sets are basically looked upon as toys by children, and even as a stress-relieving hobby for adult fans of LEGO. They contain a certain degree of innocence and neutrality as most toys should be. Furthermore, being a teacher and a parent, I see these LEGO City sets as a way of helping children process what they see and hear around them brought about by these turn of events. This is where a LEGO set becomes an invaluable teaching tool in the hands of a capable parent or caretaker. LEGO City sets such as those mentioned above can help children understand the dynamics of what is going on around them.

After all, if Sesame Street’s Elmo and his dad Louie can communicate the topic of racism to millions of children and parents, I believe LEGO can do the same with bricks, and perhaps even better.

LEGO and National Geographic Team Up for This Latest Collection of LEGO City Summer 2020 Sets

After revealing the next wave of LEGO Creator 3-in-1 summer 2020 sets, Portuguese LEGO retailer Jbnet.pt has also listed another batch of upcoming sets and this time, introducing the latest LEGO City summer 2020 sets to watch out for.

For this year, LEGO has teamed up with National Geographic to inspire young builders to pursue a career in oceanography and underwater exploration. The respective box arts of these sets also feature the iconic bright yellow rectangular border, with the organization’s name prominently printed on the lower portion of the boxes.

Though this is not the first time that LEGO offered sets focusing on a deep-sea exploration subtheme, partnering with Nat Geo allows LEGO to build sets that are closer to how the latter works in real-life. The largest in this series, the Ocean Explorers Research Boat (60266), even floats on water for a leveled-up play experience. Additionally, each of these LEGO City summer 2020 sets offer a new marine life figure. We have new LEGO pieces and molds of a hammerhead shark, angler fish, manta ray, and a relatively large great white shark.

Other than these cool collection of Nat Geo inspired sets, LEGO is also adding another airplane to its sparse repertoire of airline passenger jets and terminals. Similarly-sized ones were offered by LEGO way back in 2010 and 2016, which makes this upcoming airport terminal set a much-welcomed one.  Plus, LEGO is throwing in some flying helicopters similar to LEGO Ninjago spinners.

We do not have their piece count and retail price as of posting time, but we can expect them to be up at LEGO Shop@Home anytime soon.  Check out the following images below.

LEGO City 2020 Reveals at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, Germany

Europe’s largest toy fair is now in full swing. The Nuremberg Toy Fair 2020 has kicked in at the Nuremberg Exhibition Center in Germany, and similar to previous toy events, LEGO intends to flaunt its latest sets to arrive in the second half of the year. And thanks to Andres Lehmann from German LEGO fan site Zusammengebaut, we now have our first info regarding what to expect from upcoming LEGO City 2020 sets.

Similar to other toy fairs, taking images is strictly prohibited since most of this is understandably under embargo. However, we are at liberty to at least provide the set names which are listed below. From the looks of it, the next wave of LEGO City sets will follow an Air Transport and Deep Sea Explorers subthemes, with the latter released back in 2015.

LEGO City Air Transport

Slated for a June 2020 release.

  • Air Race (60260) – €29.99
  • Central Airport (60261) – €49.99
  • Passenger Airplane (60262) – €99.99
LEGO City Deep Sea Explorers

Slated for a July 2020 release. 

  • Marine Research Mini Submarine (60263) – €9.99
  • Marine Research Submarine (60264) – €29.99
  • Marine Research Base (60265) – €59.99
  • Marine Research Vessel (60266) – €129.99
  • LEGO City 2020 Advent Calendar (60268) – €19.99
The LEGO City Deep Sea Submarine (60092) from 2015. Will the next wave of LEGO City 2020 sets be based on this one?

It is interesting to note here that according to Andres, the Marine Research Vessel (60266) is a pretty large set that even comes with waterproof stickers. Furthermore, it seems to be the largest among these sets that also features a docking bay in the middle to load other smaller ships, perhaps the Marine Research Submarines for that matter. I’m also not really sure for the reason behind these sets having waterproof stickers, but could it be that this set is intended to be played on water? What do you think?

This next wave of LEGO City sets is scheduled for release in June and July, with official images to be out soon hopefully sometime next month when the New York Toy Fair kicks in from February 22 to 25. These new LEGO City 2020 sets follow LEGO’s announcements of a new LEGO Technic Lamborghini set, and one that is based on the Fast & Furious film franchise.

Check Out These Upcoming LEGO City 2020 Sets

I guess you will not be surprised anymore about this next wave of LEGO set reveals, especially considering the fact that we already saw a handful of new-for-2020 sets make their public debut during the past week. For those who are not that much into LEGO’s licensed sets such as those from Star Wars or Trolls themes, then here’s something that you may want to check out. To be frank, this piece of news has been circulating around the web for a few days already. And as of to date, more and more LEGO City 2020 sets are being revealed as we count the days before January 1st.

Taking them on face value, I have to say that these upcoming LEGO City 2020 sets are, well, a bit underwhelming. I don’t want to make this post sound like a review or commentary, but I felt that I have to address the brick elephant in the room. Perhaps I have the previous LEGO City subthemes in my mind such as the successful LEGO City Space, Arctic, Mining, and Jungle subthemes as my benchmarks in looking at these LEGO City 2020 sets. Somehow, I don’t feel the same thrill and excitement for these new arrivals as compared to their predecessors. I know that LEGO has a tendency to rehash or take inspiration from its previous sets, but doing so on a regular basis leaves a sort of a ‘subtheme fatigue’ for those who are familiar with the LEGO City genre.

In any case, I’m still hopeful that LEGO has something new in store for its line-up of LEGO City 2020 sets. Its good to know that these current reveals are all limited to the first half of the upcoming year, so we can definitely expect more to come in the second half of 2020. My best bet is that the Summer 2020 wave of LEGO City sets will have a sort of an outback, safari kind of theme. One of the sets in this reveal is already a give away in the form of Safari Adventure (60267) so let’s see if this will eventually come to pass.

For now, let’s take a look at these new sets, and let me know in the comments below which one are you looking forward to. Special thanks to Hoth Bricks, Pricevortex and Mein Spielzeug for all of this info.

A Closer Look At The LEGO City Summer 2019 Sets

After LEGO has updated its database to include the latest LEGO Creator 2019 sets, we now get a closer look at the upcoming LEGO City summer 2019 sets also listed at shop.LEGO.com. First glimpsed last April, this series also includes one set that carries the 4+ branding and an impressive People Pack set all slated to be released on August 1st. These latest sets don’t follow a specific subtheme though, unlike the highly popular LEGO City Space theme. Nevertheless, they are still a fun addition to your ever-expanding brick city.  The People Pack – Fun Fair (60234P) is an excellent add-on to some of LEGO’s fairground-themed sets such as the LEGO Creator Expert Roller Coaster (10261) and LEGO Creator Pirate Roller Coaster (31084).

LEGO Ninjago Minifigure Pack (40342) and LEGO City Minifigure Pack (40344) Revealed

Earlier this week we spotted, courtesy of a French LEGO site, a Minifigure Pack Tie-In for the next MCU movie. “The Spider-Man: Far from Home” Pack (40343) has some nice exclusive character minifigs inside. But that turns out to be only one of a burst of new LEGO blister packs. These other Minifigure mini-sets are for LEGO’s own theme and franchise. There’s the LEGO Ninjago Minifigure Pack (40342) with four minifigs and a relic that splits into multiple weapons. Included are Ninjago hero Kai, baddies Pyro Snake and Ice Samurai, and adventurer archeologist Clutch Powers. He’s from the 2010 DVD-released animated movie.

LEGO Ninjago Minifigure Pack (40342)

Next up is the LEGO City Minifigure Pack (40344). From this we know that the products are all summer 2019 releases. It has two beachgoers, a surfer girl and a snorkeler. Accessories range from an ice cream cart, two animal pieces (parrot and crab).

 

The LEGO City Minifigure Pack (40344) as an upcoming LEGO City item is a tad disconnected from the latest big-box sets of the line. As one might recall, these sets depict space and Mars exploration. The LEGO Ninjago Minifigure Pack (40342) does get extra points for having a rare character in Clutch Powers. That’s a neat addition to any expansive Ninjago character collection.

The official images shown here are from leaks picked up by Germany’s Promo Bricks and France’s Hoth Bricks. Our best regards to these European LEGO news sources for their efforts to bring the good stuff.
