As we prep the stage – or in this, case our blogsite and YouTube channel – for the opening of the 2018 New York Toy Fair, we’re glad that Brick Show Brian is on the floor to give you live updates as they happen at LEGO’s Booth #1335 of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
WARNING: NOT-SO-MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!
We’re counting the hours away before the New York Toy Fair commences, and just when we thought that LEGO is done with its reveals following the announcement of the return of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, and the Powerpuff Girls, the lid has been finally removed from the much talked about LEGO Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom sets. Admittedly, NBC Universal has been on extreme ‘hush mode’ when word about these sets first came out last month. Some of you are quite quick on the mouse clicks, and managed to save a copy of some of the juicy info about these much-talked about sets.
Just in time before the gates of the New York Toy Fair opens on Saturday, LEGO has opted to reveal the full line-up of cast for its LEGO Powerpuff Girls sets. Yesterday, we had an official word from LEGO about the rumored return of the girls in minifigure forms. Frankly, this doesn’t come as a surprise since we already saw how the superpowered girls from Townsville looked like as part of the now discontinued LEGO Dimensions sets. What comes as a nice surprise is the inclusion of what most of us have been waiting for: the most adorable evil primate of all: Mojo Jojo!
Just as LEGO pulled the veil off from some of 2018’s Harry Potter sets, this time, LEGO has also confirmed the rumored Fantastic Beasts sets also slated this August. The announcement was made via LEGO’s official Facebook page, together with an image of a younger Harry Potter minifigure, standing in front of Platform 9 ¾.
This one is no longer a rumor folks – the Wizarding World of Harry Potter is now back in LEGO form. The rumor mill may now stop churning on this one, now that LEGO has finally unveiled the first, and largest LEGO Harry Potter set to be offered this summer. The LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall (75954) has been revealed amid the mounting hype for this year’s New York Toy Fair which will kick off this weekend. This set comes in at 878 pieces and features a whopping 10 minifigures: older and younger versions of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, and Draco Malfoy. Included also in the roster of minifigs are Susan Bones and a Hufflepuff student. The set will be available starting August 1 and will retail for $99.99.
