LEGO is such an expansive brand that expanding into multimedia was a given. Before the rise of the animated series and films however, there were the LEGO books. These print media were handled by a variety of publishers like DK. But one label holds the distinction of being the official LEGO publisher: AMEET. Over the years AMEET has rolled out exciting storybooks featuring LEGO’s various themes and licensed IPs. Besides the conventional-narrative books, they also feature “novelty” books. These combine storybook with exclusive set pieces and minifigures for young readers to build. Their recent 2022 book-release catalog actually teases one upcoming novelty book that’s out-of-this-world.
Brick Fanatics reports that AMEET plans to release “LEGO: Your Galactic Mission” in Q3 of 2022. This novelty book is a “read-and-play” kit featuring an interactive storybook plus LEGO pieces. These pieces can be used to build the creatures and vehicles readers will encounter in the book. Like other read-and-plays, “Your Galactic Mission” puts readers in the role of the story’s hero. Here, a space explorer must protect the planet Aurora from the invading Cyber-Cobra. He decides how, by building his pick of vehicle or machine from the book’s cards.
AMEET and LEGO put together this great novelty book via the latter’s Creative Play Lab. They even tested it on family reading groups, so one can be sure “Your Galactic Mission” will be genuinely fun. This is but one of many LEGO books coming from AMEET throughout this year. Expect from them titles for LEGO City and Ninjago, and franchises DC and “Jurassic World” too.
