More 2020 LEGO licensed sets such as those from the Marvel, Star Wars and Minecraft franchises are on its way this summer. However, LEGO is still strictly putting a lid on most of them at the Nuremberg Toy except for some that visitors are allowed to see.
LEGO Star Wars 2020
As always, upcoming LEGO Star Wars are one of the most tightly guarded licensed themes and only the LEGO Star Wars 2020 Advent Calendar (75279) was revealed during the toy fair, and it is expected to be released sometime in September retailing for €29.99.
LEGO Marvel Superheroes 2020
Only one LEGO Marvel set was allowed to be seen and this is the first one under the theme. The LEGO Marvel Iron Man Bust (76165) is reported to be also bear the 18+ tag similar to the LEGO Architecture The White House (21054). It is expected to retail for €59.99 with an early release in May. I assume that this will be based on MCU’s version of Iron Man, and will somehow larger in scale as compared to the LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Bust (75227) which was exclusively released during the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago, and at Target stores.
LEGO Minecraft 2020
There will be the LEGO Minecraft Crafting 3.0 (21161) that will be released as the newer version of those that were released in 2014 (set21116) and 2017 (set 21135). It was also mentioned that a LEGO Minecraft Red Stone Battle (21163) set is also in the brick pipelines. There were no other set details that were revealed about these sets and that’s quite a bummer for fans of the LEGO Minecraft theme.
I am more interested in how that LEGO Marvel Iron Man Bust (76165) will turn out. Being larger as compared to other LEGO busts, I expect greater detail and more realistic design on his helmet and armor especially if it will accommodate the power core on his chest. It’s a fitting tribute to the legacy of Robert Downey Jr’s version of Iron Man as the whole MCU basically started with him. And having a release date this upcoming May will sure to see some official images pop-up anytime soon.
So what do you think about the rest of the sets 2020 LEGO licensed sets that were not exhibited at the toy fair? Are you impressed about them? Let me know in the comments below.
