It looks like we have our first images for another upcoming LEGO Star Wars set expected to be released early August. Luxembourg-based retailer Electronic-Shop, have listed the LEGO Star Wars Cloud Rider Swoop Bikes (75215) based on the subtheme Solo: A Star Wars Story. It may not be the best quality images that we have about this set, but it is certainly interesting to see what it has to offer. This particular set has been rumored quite heavily among LEGO fan circles considering the speculated presence of Enfys Nest and Weazel, which was a closely guarded secret back then before Solo landed in cinemas last month.
If you’re no stranger to LEGO-compatible collectible minifigures, then it’s most likely that you have come across the name and brand, OYO Sports. Similar to LEGO CMFs, OYO Sports, as the name suggests, produces LEGO compatible minifigs that showcases the most famous names in sports. The appeal behind the OYO brand lies in their extensive and exclusive tie-ups with major sports leagues such as the Major League Baseball. And one particular name that has gradually risen to the top of the ranks to earn his own commemorative OYO minifigure is Los Angeles Angels’ Japanese superstar, Shohei Ohtani. Though recent news about his elbow injury has left many fans of the sport in a state of disbelief, we sincerely hope that he will recover soon as fans will surely wait for his return to the ball field.
Not only does the recently released online LEGO US Catalog 2H 2018 teased on two upcoming LEGO BrickHeadz sets, but it seems that we’ll be seeing the next Collectible Minifigure Series sooner than expected. We’re still swooning with delight on LEGO’s party-themed, commemorative 40th Anniversary CMF Series 18 (71021) minifigs, and it looks like we’re about to get another wave roughly two months from now.
After the reveal of the latest LEGO BrickHeadz Ariel & Ursula (41623) dual-set, we now have official confirmation on the next Disney-inspired set to watch out for this August. The LEGO US Catalog for the 2nd half of 2018 is now available online and with it, comes a teaser for the LEGO BrickHeadz Mickey (41624) and Minnie Mouse (41625).
One particular spot for my checklist of LEGO must-haves for this year definitely goes to the LEGO Creator Expert Roller Coaster (10261). Since the introduction of LEGO’s new track elements included from last year’s LEGO Batman Movie Joker Manor (70922), clamor for a true LEGO roller coaster set has been stronger than ever. With the arrival of the Roller Coaster (10261), and with LEGO even throwing in a newer, optional power function to go along with it, everything seems to be all too perfect.
