There are lots of new LEGO sets expected to arrive next month, and LEGO has unveiled a pair of new LEGO summer 2020 minifigure packs slated to arrive in June. Almost all of LEGO’s themes are getting additional sets this summer, and some of its licensed sets such as those coming from the LEGO Harry Potter and Marvel Super Heroes themes will be getting their minifigure packs as well.
It has now been customary for LEGO to offer it’s licensed themes additional minifigure packs. If you recall from the previous years, LEGO has introduced its licensed minifigure packs such as the LEGO DC Super Heroes Knightmare Batman Accessories Set (853744) from 2018 and the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man and the Museum Break-In (40343) minifigure pack from last year. And for 2020, Brickset has revealed that we can now expect another pair of minifigure packs to add to our collection.
These new LEGO summer 2020 minifigure packs feature a LEGO Marvel Avengers Falcon and the Black Widow Minifigure Pack (40418) and a LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Students Minifigure Pack (40419) – both of which are slated to arrive in June both in-store and online at LEGO Shop@Home. The Falcon and Black Widow minifig pack include two new versions of the iconic Marvel superheroes. This newer version of Falcon sports a pair of brick-built pair of wings, while Black Widow gets her sixth minifigure version. Included in this pack are two additional AIM agents similar to those seen in the upcoming LEGO Marvel summer 2020 sets, plus a 1×1 round stud shooter.
The Harry Potter Hogwarts Students minifigure pack features an interesting mix of characters coming from each house of Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It includes Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy, Hannah Abbot, and Cho Chang. As Brickset points out, this is the second minifig rendition of Cho Chang, the first being that from the first LEGO Harry Potter CMF (71022). This set also includes a small bookcase, a few wizardry artifacts, and a uniquely printed tile that features a Marauder’s Map.
As of this posting, only the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Students minifigure pack is listed at LEGO’s European shopping portals, with both of these new LEGO summer 2020 minifigure packs still waiting to be seen in LEGO Shop@Home in the US. However, we can expect these to appear anytime soon, so be sure to keep an eye on them.
Besides these two, fans are also excited about the arrival of the LEGO Star Wars 501st Legion™ Clone Troopers (75280). Though this does not exactly qualify as a minifigure pack, having this elite unit from the Clone Wars rendered as an official LEGO set is something that LEGO Star Wars fans have been wishing for a very long time.
Be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home during the next few days to catch these new LEGO summer 2020 minifigure packs. I’ll also update this post once the links go live, so you may want to bookmark our blog site as well.
