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.
