LEGO has now uploaded the entire LEGO CON 2021 video over its YouTube, making it more accessible to fans worldwide. Billed as the ultimate online experience for LEGO fans everywhere, this is the LEGO Group’s very first live online streaming event that highlights some of its latest products, and a chance to interact with LEGO designers and other master builders.
The original video is still uploaded on the LEGO.com website as to where it is first streamed, and having it available over at YouTube allows more LEGO fans to relive the excitement of the event.
In case you missed the live-streaming event over the weekend, LEGO CON 2021 officially showcased the new LEGO Star Wars The Mandalorian sets expected to arrive in August, plus a poll for fans to decide a new LEGO Minecraft minifigure. It was also the opportune time to reveal a new LEGO Ideas set, inspired by the winner of the LEGO Ideas We Love Sports Contest.
Though I have to admit that I was expecting more from one of LEGO’s grandest events (for some reason, I can sadly hear Thanos’ voice in my head over and over again whenever I think of LEGO Dimensions – “no resurrections this time”). But regardless of my personal feelings towards it, I have to agree that LEGO CON 2021 is a great platform for LEGO to highlight its next line of product offerings. It may not meet everyone’s expectations, but the new and creative opportunities for LEGO fans and builders to connect and interact is a breath of fresh air especially in this time of the pandemic.
So what do you think of this first-ever LEGO CON 2021? What are you’re favorite highlights of the program? What do you wish could have been done better? Let me know in the comments below.
