From the Rumor Mill: Here’s A Round-Up of all the Upcoming LEGO Sets for H1 2021

If you’re keeping a watchful eye on some of the things that are happening in the LEGO community scene, then you might have noticed that last month was a roller coaster ride of rumors and teases that gave us a glimpse of what we can expect from LEGO next year. Given with such an enormous amount of info from the leaky faucet, let’s take time to sum up everything that we have learned so far about the upcoming LEGO sets for the first half (H1) of 2021.

LEGO Technic

Upcoming LEGO Sets
Yep, one of Marvel’s cool antiheroes will be back in 2021 in LEGO form. His first brick iteration came in 2016 in the likes of the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Spider-Man: Ghost Rider Team-Up (76058).

76168 Marvel Avengers: Captain America Mech (121 pieces, €9.99)

LEGO Super Mario
And of course, LEGO obviously has more plans for its latest collaboration with Nintendo. In 2021, we can expect another series of Character Pack similar to its LEGO Super Mario Character Pack Series 1 (71361)

71380 Starter Course Set 2 (366 pieces, €59.99)
71381 Expansion Set (160 pieces, €19.99)

71385 Power-Up/Mario Costume Pack (13 pieces, €9.99)
71386 Character Pack 2 (€3.99 per blind bag)

The names of these upcoming LEGO sets under the Super Mario theme are understandably kept under wraps, but from the looks of it, we can expect a new Starter Course set, 3 Expansion Sets, 2 additional Super Mario costumes, or Power-Ups, and another series of Character Packs. The Starter Course Set 2 is quite interesting and we’ll have to see how this will turn out.

LEGO Harry Potter

Rumor has it that the LEGO Harry Potter theme will receive its Disney-like series of Storybook Adventures, but in this case, based on the various classrooms of the iconic Hogwarts Castle. Each LEGO Harry Potter Storybook playset is expected to retail for €29.99, with a release date of January 2021.

75382 Transfiguration Classroom (??? Pieces, €29.99)
75383 Potions Classroom (??? Pieces, €29.99)
75384 Herbology Classroom (??? Pieces, €29.99)
75385 Charms Classroom (??? Pieces, €29.99)

LEGO Star Wars
Yeah, I know it may sound redundant already but hey, the Millennium Falcon still holds a special place in LEGO Star Wars fandom. As proof of that, we can expect another LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon Microfighter similar to what we have in set 75193 to be part of a repertoire of upcoming LEGO sets.

75295 Millennium Falcon Microfighter (101 pieces, €9.99)
75299 The Mandalorian Set (276 pieces, €29.99)
75301 X-Wing (Red Five) (474 pieces, €49.99)
75300 TIE Fighter (432 pieces, €39.99)
75297 Resistance X-Wing 4+ (60 pieces, €19.99)
75298 Tauntaun & AT-AT Microfighter (205 pieces, €19.99)
75302 Imperial Shuttle (660 pieces, €79.99)
75303 Ultimate Collector Series (??? pieces, €???)
75304 18+ Helmet Series: Darth Vader (834 pieces, €69.99)
75305 18+ Helmet Series: Scout Trooper (471 pieces, €49.99)
75306 18+ Helmet Series: Imperial Probe Droid (683 pieces, €69.99)
75307 18+ Helmet Series: ??? (??? pieces, €69.99)

 

This is an exhaustive list though since we can still expect plenty of new information to come in as we approach the last quarter of this year. However, since LEGO is quite mum about these things, for now, I highly suggest that we consider all of these things for the rumors that they really are for the time being. Unless we hear LEGO’s official press release and product reveal regarding its upcoming LEGO sets, then let’s take this piece of news with a healthy amount of salt.

Exclusive LEGO DC Fandome Supergirl Minifigure Unveiled

The first installment of DC Fandome’s virtual comic book convention has been concluded, and if you’re one of the fortunate souls that managed to join in their event sweepstakes, then you are probably aware that one of the uber-cool prizes that will be given away is the exclusive LEGO DC Fandome Supergirl minifigure.

Just to be precise, the DC Fandome sweepstakes is already closed. And if you missed out on that window of opportunity, then I guess we just have to stay tuned if another similar sweepstakes prize will be offered again on September 12 when DC Fandome launches its second virtual event. If you’re also residing outside of the US, then your chances of having this exclusive and limited edition LEGO DC Fandome Supergirl minifigure is either through eBay or a friend that is both lucky and kind enough to give you his/her minifigure winning.

In case you’re wondering, this minifig version of Supergirl is based on Melissa Benoist’s on-screen rendition of Kara Zor-El, as seen on CW’s Supergirl Season 5. This newer LEGO version of Supergirl stays true to her new looks, favoring dark blue pants over her iconic skirt. Plus the much-talked-about change in her hairstyle is also reflected in the minifigure hairpiece. As noted by The Brothers Brick, while the legs and torso prints are unique to this LEGO DC Fandome Supergirl, the hairpiece is taken from Series 20’s Pyjama Girl, so this particular LEGO element is not entirely new.

Again, this particular sweepstake draw is already over, and if in case you’re one of the 1,495 winners of the LEGO DC Fandome Supergirl minifigure, then perhaps you can drop us a comment below and share to us what your initial impressions of this LEGO exclusive.

Limited Edition LEGO DC Wonder Woman (77906) Officially Revealed

DC FanDome’s first half of its virtual comic-con may all be over, but it seems the excitement doesn’t stop there. Following the reveal of the new Wonder Woman 1984 trailer which gives our first look at Kristen Wiig’s Cheetah, now comes a new LEGO product listing that celebrates the film’s classic comic book roots. LEGO Shop@Home has now listed the limited edition LEGO DC Wonder Woman (77906), scheduled to be released on October 1st.

LEGO DC Wonder Woman

Right off the bat, the LEGO DC Wonder Woman (77906) set follows the recognizable Comic-Con style box art reminiscent of previous SDCC offerings. This strengthens the notion that this may probably be intended to be offered as a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive, but because of the on-going pandemic, LEGO has to do some contingency plans on how this may be offered to the market. This vignette type of set is very much reminiscent of that to the LEGO Captain Marvel and the ASIS (77902) and the LEGO DC Dark Knight of Gotham City (77903) both exclusively offered during last year’s SDCC.

Some things worth noting here are first, LEGO opted to have this listed for pre-order, helping TLG determine how much sets will it need to produce within a month before its official release in October. And second, it looks like the set will only be offered in the US, which is not really good news to other LEGO fans across the globe. Frankly, I’m still a bit puzzled on how LEGO comes across with some of these geographical restrictions, while still committing on the idea of doing away with its regional exclusives. Whatever is the case, I think fans will appreciate it if LEGO clarifies these things.

Here are the product details of the new LEGO DC Wonder Woman (77906) including some official images. This set is expected to retail for $39.99 in the US and comes with the minifigure versions of the classic Wonder Woman, her arch-nemesis Cheetah, and Wonder Woman’s trusted confidant Etta Candy.

While you’re at it, you may also like to check another tie-in set which is the LEGO Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157), currently available at LEGO Shop@Home.

LEGO Wonder Woman (77906)

The 3 collectible minifigures are displayed in an outdoor environment set on a sturdy base. The completed model will add a great conversation piece to any room. Popular action minifigure toys from LEGO DC construction toys let children role-play as their favorite characters in good vs. evil conflicts to save the world!

New LEGO Brick Sketches Theme Revealed – Arriving June 1st

Here’s another surprise from LEGO. Brickset has just revealed that LEGO will be releasing a new LEGO Brick Sketches theme, with four licensed sets – from Star Wars and DC Comics in particular – included in its initial roster.

If you find the LEGO Brick Sketches familiar, that’s because the designer for these sets is none other than ace MOC builder Chris McVeigh. The idea of having a brick-built sketch or drawing was in Chris’ thoughts since 2016, and if you’ll check his Flickr account, you’ll see some of his initial brick sketches mostly focusing on Star Wars characters. I’m glad to see that his work is now recognized by LEGO since he became part of the elite LEGO Design Team more than a year ago. You may also want to check his website where he offers the building instructions for some of his original creations for free.

LEGO Brick Sketches sets are yet to be listed at LEGO Shop@Home, but Huw from Brickset mentions that we can expect them to be available beginning June 1. For a closer look at what these sets offer (which I believe will be more appealing to AFOLs), you may want to check Brickset’s extensive review of the LEGO Brick Sketches The Joker (40428). In the meantime, you may want to take a look at their respective box arts below courtesy of Brickset.

New Film-Inspired Licensed LEGO Sets Now Available at LEGO Shop@Home

LEGO Shop@Home has updated its listing to now include several tie-in sets based on upcoming films. Universal Pictures’ Minions The Rise of Gru, and Warner Bros’ Wonder Woman 1984 may have been rescheduled unfortunately due to the coronavirus pandemic, but this has not derailed LEGO from its plans of releasing their respective LEGO sets this April, including a LEGO Technic set devoted to the Fast & Furious film franchise. These latest film-inspired licensed LEGO sets are now up at LEGO’s online shopping portal, all of which can be conveniently ordered online now that LEGO Stores are temporarily closed in compliance with the government’s stay-at-home guidelines.

However, please take note that in the case of the LEGO Minions sets, not all of them are available for the time being. If you recall, LEGO initially listed five sets under this theme last February but has to eventually remove three of them from their current line-up probably due to the eventual rescheduling of its tie-in film. I understand that some of these sets may offer a potential spoiler for the film so we might have to wait until July of next year when the movie is set to be released.

The LEGO DC Superheroes Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157) set, on the other hand, is now released months ahead of the theatrical debut of the DCEU sequel Wonder Woman 1984. Initially considered to be a Target store exclusive, its good to see that it will also be available directly from LEGO. The set itself does not spill any major plot points, except showing us how a version of Cheetah may look like in minifig form and the confrontation between them at the transmitter tower.

Finally, LEGO motorheads will be glad to know that the LEGO Technic Dom’s Dodge Charger (42111) from the Fast & Furious films is now also up LEGO Shop@Home. Based on the classic 1970s Dodge Charger R/T, the set is an authentic replication of the iconic muscle car.

LEGO Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157) Spotted in Target Stores

In case you missed it, last week saw the reveal of another LEGO and Warner Bros tie-in set with the LEGO Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157) set appearing in online third-party retail stores. Similar to the LEGO Wonder Woman Warrior Battle (76075) released in 2017 to celebrate the release of the Amazon princess’ first DCEU solo film, this current offering most probably will be the only set released for the sequel.

UK’s Asda has listed this set for pre-order (but currently out of stock) for £34.97 or roughly at $40. Check out the following images below, including its brief product description.

LEGO Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157)

LEGO Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157)

LEGO Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157)

371 pieces | £34.97; $39.99; €39.99

Young superheroes can recreate the Wonder Woman 1984 movie with the LEGO DC Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157) action figures battle building set. When Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) encounters her archenemy, Cheetah (Dr. Barbara Minerva), at the transmitter tower, the scene is set for an epic battle! This DC Universe action-packed playset gives kids double the fun. Down below in the bunker, Max tries to enter the tower, while overhead the transmitter panels rotate. Meanwhile, Wonder Woman and Cheetah confront each other. With exciting features and so many possibilities for play, young superheroes will experience endless imaginative fun!

LEGO DC kids’ construction toys with superhero minifigures let children role-play as their favourite superhero in good vs evil conflicts to save the world in the DC Universe! With legendary characters and cool gadgets, LEGO DC building sets make great gifts for kids, inspiring individual and group play that never ends. Measures 7” (19 cm) high and 6” (17cm) wide, with a radar dish measuring 7” (20cm) across. Contains 371 pieces.

There is no update yet on when this set will be eventually available, though the way I see it, LEGO has probably begun rolling out the LEGO Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157) set since eagle-eyed fans have already spotted it across shelves of Target stores.

My best guess is that since the Wonder Woman 1984 film sequel was originally set to be released in theaters on June 4, but needs to be rescheduled in August instead because of the COVID-19 outbreak, LEGO eventually went ahead with the release of the set, probably intended to be released next month. Whatever is the case, it also seems that this latest LEGO tie-in set will be a Target store exclusive as reported by The Brick Fan.  We’ll probably get more info in the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned.

Rumored LEGO DC Comics Superheroes Sets for 2020

More rumors are coming out from the leaking faucet. After the news came out regarding what to expect from the next 2020 wave of LEGO Marvel Superheroes sets, we now have additional info about the next series of LEGO DC Comics Superheroes sets coming this second half of 2020 courtesy of Promobricks.

LEGO DC Wonder Woman 1984

Similar to what LEGO did with DCEU’s Wonder Woman in 2017’s Wonder Woman Warrior Battle (76075), the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984 sequel will also be receiving the LEGO treatment. We have no information as to date regarding its exact set name but for the time being, lets refer to it as Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157). It features a large satellite dish with minifigure versions of Wonder Woman and Cheetah. This set is slated to be released in June, just in time for its tie-up film landing on theaters on June 5, 2020.

LEGO Batman

As it turns out, we can expect three new LEGO Batman sets to arrive also in June, one of which is labeled as ‘4+’. The smallest in the set, which is also the one tagged as for 4+ kids, is the Penguin Pursuit (76158). It features a Penguin minifigure and a small brick-built duck which we assume as the titular villain’s vehicle. It also includes a Bat Boat with a Batman minifigure. Based on its description, it somehow thematically resembles that of the LEGO Batman: The Penguin Face Off (76010) from 2014 save for the Bat Submarine.

The LEGO Batman Penguin Faceoff (76010) from 2014 features a brick built duck that may reappear in an upcoming LEGO Batman set. 

We also have another mid-sized set which is called Joker’s Trike Chase (76159) that features a trike with a grotesque grin which obviously the vehicle of choice for Joker. It also includes a Batman minifigure together with his Batmobile. Other minifigures include Harley Quinn with her oversized, black and red hammer, and Robin.

The last set in this series and what seems to be the largest, is the Mobile Bat Base (76160). Retailing for 89.99 Euro, it includes the minifigures of Batman, Batgirl, Nightwing (red, New 52 version), Mr. Freeze, Bronze Tiger, and Man Bat. From what it seems, the Mobile Bat Base also features several interlocking vehicles.

Man-Bat and Nightwing appear here in the LEGO Batman Man-Bat Attack (76011) from 2014. We might see these minifigs once again in the tentatively named Mobile Bat Base (76160).

Here’s a brief rundown of all the LEGO DC Comics Superheroes that we know will be arriving in June. Please take note that the set names mentioned above are just based on the set’s initial descriptions and may still change once LEGO makes their official reveal.

  • LEGO DC Comics Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157)€39.99 | June 2020 release date
  • LEGO Batman Penguin Pursuit 4+ (76158)€9.99 | June 2020 release date
  • LEGO Batman Joker’s Trike Chase (76159)€49.99 | June 2020 release date
  • LEGO Batman Mobile Bat-Base (76160)€89.99 | June 2020 release date

LEGO DC Super Heroes Collectible Minifigures (71026) Box Distribution Confirmed

For those of you (myself included) who would like to have an idea regarding the box distribution of LEGO’s hottest CMF as of to date, then read on for more details. We’re just counting the days before the year closes which also marks the official release of the LEGO DC Super Heroes Collectible Minifigures (71026). And in case you’re wondering about the odds in which you can get your fave LEGO DC minifig character, then Brickset gives us an early tip on the series’ box distribution.

DC Super Heroes Collectible Minifigures

DC Super Heroes Collectible Minifigures

The good news about this latest CMF series is that at the very least, you’ll get three copies of the same minifigure. This is somewhat an improvement as compared to other licensed CMF series such as the LEGO Wizarding World Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures (71022). If you recall, this particular CMF has 2 copies of some of its characters, with a sort of a chase minifig of Percival Graves thrown into the box. Gladly, this is not the case for the LEGO DC Super Heroes Collectible Minifigure (71026) that guarantees 3 complete sets of 16 characters right out of the box.

Like ones before it, this LEGO DC CMF comes in 60 blind bags per box with the following distribution. As a side note, each of these DC minfig characters is now listed at our official storefront over at the Brick Show Shop. Just click on the links below to find out more about this offer.

3 Blind Bags Per Box

(From left to right) Mister Miracle, SinestroCyborg, Batman, Huntress, Bumblebee, Bat-Mite

 

4 Blind Bags Per Box

(From left to right) Wonder Woman, Cheetah, Superman, Green Lantern, Metamorpho, Star Girl

 

5 Blind Bags Per Box

(From left to right) Aquaman, JokerThe Flash

In my opinion, having 3 complete sets outright is a nice incentive to get a box of this CMF, especially if you intend to redistribute them later on. Aside from having a collection of your own, you still have two complete sets that you may share with your other LEGO-loving buddies. However, the expected price tag for each of these blind bags may somehow discourage other buyers. There have been rumors that this CMF series will experience a price bump once 2020 kicks in, ramping up the cost per blind bag by an additional dollar. We have to wait and see if indeed this collectible minifigs will be sold for $4.99 USD each as compared to other licensed series like those of the Harry Potter (71022) and the Disney Series 2 (71024) CMFs when they debuted in the market at $3.99 per bag. If this indeed will be the case, then I guess it will leave a lot of LEGO fans a bit disappointed since this may start the trend of an eventual price increase among future CMF releases later on.

So what do you think? Will you collect all of the DC characters in this latest LEGO collectible minifigure series? Let us know what you think about the LEGO DC Super Heroes Collectible Minifigures in the comments below.

This LEGO 1989 Batmobile (76139) Designer Video Reveals How Impressive This Set Actually Is

A few weeks ago, LEGO Batman fans were awe-struck with what could be the largest LEGO vehicle offered thus far. In their LEGO 1989 Batmobile (76139) designer video, self-confessed Tim Burton fans, and LEGO Designers Chris Perron and Adam Grabowski share their excitement on the creative process that they went through in coming up with this iconic version of the Batmobile.

The LEGO 1989 Batmobile (76139) is both impressive in its scale and the play features that go with it. Designers Chris and Adam also made sure that they stay faithful to the original 1989 depiction of the Dark Knight’s vehicle. The set features machine guns that pop up at the turn of the knob, and a slide-open cockpit that the designers managed to pull off even at a tilted angle. Speaking about the cockpit, the interior is simply loaded with fantastic details. LEGO Graphic Designer Ioana Popescu made sure that every detail counts in this legendary vehicle. I love how the steering wheel turned out in this set. The wheels in front are new wheel elements, while those at the back are taken from 2014’s LEGO DC Comics The Tumbler (76023). The set also comes with a rotating display stand that makes it an even more awesome display piece.

LEGO 1989 Batmobile (76139)

Since almost the entirety of the LEGO 1989 Batmobile (76139) is black, the designers were considerate to ensure that the inner workings of this set come in myriads of colors. This is extremely helpful in building such a large monochromatic set.

The choice of design for the set’s exclusive minifigures also takes their cue from Tim Burton’s vision of the Dark Knight. The LEGO 1989 Batmobile comes with three minifigures: a new version of Batman donned in a new soft plastic cowl as seen in the film; Vicki Vale with a mini brick-built camera, and of course Jack Nicholson’s rendition of The Joker. I guess for most LEGO Batman fans, the highlight of these exclusive minifigs will Batman himself, especially considering that classic cowl and cape that comes as a single piece. Having it as such and doing away with the usual swatch of cloth for Batman’s cape is clearly intentional on the part of the designers, to make it as close as to how Tim Burton’s idea of Batman is during this time. Though I’m still racking my brain on how battle-efficient Batman is in this costume when he is unable to turn his head when fighting the bad guys.  Well, that’s just my opinion.

LEGO 1989 Batmobile (76139)

The LEGO 1989 Batmobile (76139) comes in at 3,306 pieces and is now currently available at LEGO Shop@Home retailing for $249.99 USD.

A Closer Look at the LEGO DC Comics Collectible Minifigures (71026)

After a Japanese online store gave us our first glimpse of the next hottest CMF series to watch out for, UK-based The Minifigure Store now provides a closer look at each character included in the LEGO DC Comics Collectible Minifigures (71026) series.

This latest series features 16 classic and modern renditions of DC Comics’ characters that we’ve known. The list is impressive in my opinion, and more so when I see up close the design and accessories that go with them. I’ve always been a fan of the classic comic book characters, so I’m surely looking forward to having that Jay Garrick version of The Flash, that Detective Comics No. 27 accessory from the Bat-Mite, and that Classic Batman from the Golden Age of comics. For Green Lantern fans, you’ll be glad to know that we’re finally getting a proper lantern accessory both for Classic Sinestro and Simon Baz. I hope that similar to what LEGO did with the LEGO Batman Movie Series 1 (71017) and Series 2 (71020) CMF, we’ll get another wave of DC Comics minifigs in the future. A Marvel Superheroes CMF will also be nice if LEGO has it on the works.

The Brick Show Shop – our official storefront – will also be putting the LEGO DC Comics Collectible Minifigures (71026) on sale once they arrive in January. So be sure to keep tabs with us by clicking on that red notification bell below. You may also visit our site directly by clicking on the links below. Special thanks to BrickFanz for the heads up.
