Other than a LEGO City-inspired minifig set, LEGO Ninjago is also getting another minifigure pack for 2020 and it looks like it will be a kind of shoutout to one of Ninjago’s previous seasons. The LEGO Ninjago Golden Zane Minifigure Accessory Set (40374) is now listed at LEGO Shop@Home and is slated to be released on March 1st as well.
This new minifigure set is inspired by Season 3 of LEGO Ninjago released back in 2014, and includes an exclusive Golden Zane minifig together with a trio of Nindroids. Though this particular season of Ninjago introduced us to our ninja’s mysterious golden power, it seems that only two of the main Ninjago characters – Lloyd (The Golden Dragon 70503 and 70666, Temple of Light 70505, LEGO Dimensions Lloyd Fun Pack 71239) and Kai (exclusive Bricktober 2017 Ninjago Minifigure Collection 5004938) – were given their official golden power minifigures. This latest minifigure offering now adds to a relatively rare collection of LEGO Ninjago Golden Power minifigs, so I would assume that this will be popular among collectors.
Read on for the full details of this new minifig set, and you may add this to your LEGO shopping wishlist so you won’t miss out on this one once it is available.

LEGO gave us a glimpse of things to come at this year’s Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany, and if you recall from last week, we can expect two sets coming from the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man franchise. And this time around, LEGO Shop@Home has finally unveiled the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163), slated to be released on March 1st.
The LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163) comes in at 413 pieces and features Spider-Man, Iron Venom, and Carnage in their minifigure forms. The Iron Venom is the first minifigure of its kind, perhaps as a reference to the Invincible Iron Man #5 comics released in 2017. While this set also features our third Carnage minifigure following 2015’s Carnage’s SHIELD Sky Attack (76036), and last year’s Spider-Man Bike Rescue (76113).
Here’s the official product description for the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163) which will retail for $29.99

This is one LEGO BrickHeadz that will take LEGO Star Wars fandom by storm. Promobricks managed to capture this now-deleted post from Amazon Canada that shows the latter listing a LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars The Mandalorian and the Child (75317) set, together with a glimpse of what to expect from it.
The listing was obviously a bit early since someone from Amazon has to do some damage control. I assume that this set will be officially unveiled sometime during this weekend’s New York Toy Fair, but I guess Amazon got a bit excited so… Well, who wouldn’t especially now that the Child (aka Baby Yoda) now has an official LEGO set just in time to level up the hype for Season 2 of The Mandalorian which will arrive in Disney+ in October. This newest callback to the Star Wars spin-off series is the third set offered under the LEGO Star Wars The Mandalorian subtheme, following the AT-ST Raider (75254) and the Mandalorian Battle Pack (75267).
The LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars The Mandalorian and the Child (75317) comes in at 295 pieces and will likely retail somewhere between 20 or 25 Euro, with a release date of August 1. Check out the product description below.
LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars The Mandalorian and the Child (75317)
Inspire memories of epic Star Wars: The Mandalorian stories with this fun building toy for creative kids, featuring LEGO BrickHeadz versions of The Mandalorian and the Child 75317. Fans will appreciate authentic details such as The Mandalorian’s signature weapons – a blaster rifle and a blaster pistol. The Child has adjustable ears to create happy and sad expressions, and it sits in a hoverpram ‘floating’ on 4 transparent LEGO elements. A great addition to any Star Wars fan’s collection, this awesome construction toy is fun to build solo or with friends and family, and each of the buildable LEGO figures has a baseplate to create an eye-catching display. The LEGO Group has been recreating iconic starships, vehicles, locations and characters from the legendary Star Wars universe since 1999. LEGO Star Wars is now its most successful theme offering a huge variety of gift ideas to delight all ages.

It looks like the LEGO Group is trying to test the waters with this one. The LEGO World in Copenhagen has officially kicked off, and LEGO took this opportunity to soft launch what seems to be its first attempt to offer lighting accessories to some of its premium sets. The LEGO Night Mode Light Kits were unveiled, with initial five kits that are tailored for specific sets.
According to a report from Brickset, these light kits were put on display at the LEGO Store in that location, with some sets being shown with these light accessories such as the LEGO Creator Expert Ford Mustang (10265). However, it seems that they are not actually for sale yet and those that were displayed are just empty boxes as of this moment. It’s like a test run spearheaded by the LEGO Lead User Lab where LEGO engages with the LEGO fan community to gauge how feasible and appealing this future brick innovation might be.
Truth be told, there are already a handful of third-party lighting kits that are made available via Amazon, and they are way below the $200 price point that the LEGO Night Mode Light Kits seem to suggest. So it can be said that the market for this kind of LEGO accessories is pretty much in place already, and LEGO has to think outside of the box to make this offering more functional and feature-rich. The only advantage that I see right here is that since it is made directly by LEGO, then we can be assured that it will perfectly fit any of their existing or currently offered sets.
In any case, I’m sure that most LEGO fans will welcome this move, only if the LEGO Group will reconsider its pricing.
The LEGO Ideas Review Team has turned in the results of their LEGO Ideas 2019 Second Review Stage, and it seems that we are not getting just one but two new LEGO Ideas sets in the near future. Check out the announcement made by LEGO Ideas Engagement Manager, Hasan Jensen, and LEGO Ideas Design Manager, Samuel Johnson via Facebook live at 4PM CET.
Though I was a bit far-off from my predictions of what these next LEGO Ideas sets will be, I’m glad to see that the Medieval Blacksmith product idea by LEGO fan designer Clemens Fiedler (aka Namirob) was eventually chosen to become an official LEGO set. I like the direction where LEGO seems to be going with their selections within the LEGO Ideas platform. Though it may not be a medieval castle in itself, the LEGO Ideas Medieval Blacksmith set is a shout out to LEGO’s classic Castle theme that many adult fans are longing to be revived. And with the upcoming LEGO Ideas The Pirate Bay now in the works, we can see how these sets can evoke a certain feeling of nostalgia among AFOLs. Plus, the design on this set clearly demonstrates the superb building skill of its fan designer – the building style (the roof and chimney are absolutely gorgeous), choice of colors, landscape, and interior details all combine to bring out one display-worthy set.
This one caught me by surprise, though it was in a way expected given the longstanding partnership between LEGO and Disney. Winnie the Pooh by Ben Alder (aka benlouisa) is the next upcoming LEGO Ideas set that we can expect sometime next year. A.A. Milne’s classic children’s story, now immortalized by Disney, is finally getting an official LEGO set complete with all the characters that we learned to love since our childhood days. The set includes the 100 Acre Wood, the place that served as a home for Winnie the Pooh together with his friends, Piglet, Tigger, Rabbit, Eeyore, and the ‘wise’ Owl. What makes the LEGO Ideas Winnie the Pooh set exciting is the possibility of having new minifigure characters, molds and pieces that will render them as close to how they look like in the Disney animated film.
Unfortunately, the LEGO Ideas Review Team ultimately decided to forego Stephanix’s Anatomini project. The reasons were not specifically stated, except for the fact that it may not have met LEGO’s standards with regards to “playability, safety and fit with the LEGO brand”.
With the announcement of the LEGO Ideas 2019 Second Review Stage results now out of the way, we can now expect the Third Review Stage to wrap up in summer as well. These twelve product ideas manage to gather the needed 10,000 fan support or votes from September 2019 to January of this year. It’s exciting to see what the outcome will be on this one, especially considering the licensing issues that the review team needs to hurdle for some of these projects.
The LEGO Ideas Team is leveling up the excitement for the Second 2019 LEGO Ideas Review Stage. As announced over at their blogsite, the final results for this particular review stage will come this week, specifically tomorrow Wednesday.
This announcement of the next official LEGO Ideas set will be made via a livestream event over at the LEGO Ideas Facebook page on February 12, 2020 4PM (CET). There’s a total of 10 qualifying product ideas ranging from highly popular NASA-inspired sets to entries based on licensed themes. If you recall, the following are the qualifying product ideas that made it to the Second 2019 LEGO Ideas Review Stage.
Additionally, results will also be shared for Stephanix’s Anatomini product idea which was carried over from the previous review stage. Admittedly, the LEGO Ideas Review Team was on a bit of a tight spot since this proposed set requires more time to evaluate perhaps due to the many intricacies and details in this build.
To further engage the LEGO fan community, the LEGO Ideas Review Team is also hosting a giveaway where LEGO fans can have the chance to win a signed, LEGO Ideas Dinosaur Fossils (21320) by fan designer Jonathan Brunn. Joining is easy – simply comment on LEGO Ideas’ official social media channels (on this blogsite, on Facebook & Twitter) and make your best guess on what will be our next official LEGO Ideas set based on these qualifying entries. One random comment from each of these platforms will be selected. This particular comment must be able to correctly guess or comes close to the final result in order to bag the prize. Posting of comments will end once the Facebook livestream begins during the abovementioned time.
Given the current trend on NASA and space-themed sets, my best guess is that either the UCS Space Shuttle Atlantis or the NASA Spacecraft makes will emerge as the overall winner. How about you, what do you think will be our next LEGO Ideas set? Don’t forget to submit your comments over at LEGO Ideas, and care to share them as well in the comments section below.
Here’s another space-themed LEGO set to add to your collection if perchance it gets approved. Following the success of the SpaceX Falcon 9, we now have the Mini-fig Scale Project Gemini as the next LEGO Ideas product idea to hit the 10K fan support mark. Designed by LEGO fan Stevenhoward27, this qualifying entry pays tribute to NASA’s initial efforts of bringing astronauts into space, supporting the Apollo mission of preparing and enabling our first baby steps on the moon.
Similar to the official LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309), the Project Gemini follows a modular representation of the transport’s re-entry module, a retrograde section, and an adapter equipment section. It also features two astronaut minifigures and a stand for display purposes. I like the inclusion of the official NASA Project Gemini logo at the base of the stand which gives it a premium, collectible feel.
The LEGO Ideas Mini-fig Scale Project Gemini is the 7th product idea to qualify for the First 2020 Review Stage which will commence sometime in May of this year. Here’s how Stevenhoward27 describes his fan submission.
Mini-fig Scale Project Gemini
We would not have gone to the moon if it weren’t for Project Gemini. Mercury was the first stepping stone and Apollo is what got us there, but Gemini was essential for learning on-orbit rendezvous, the first spacewalks, and other important experiments and tests before traveling to the moon.
Here is my build depicting Project Gemini at mini-fig scale! It includes a display stand with the Project Gemini patch, the reentry module with detachable rendezvous and recovery section and opening hatches, the adapter/retrograde section, and the adapter equipment section. There are two astronaut mini-figs with one that can be displayed on a space-walk as Ed White did on Gemini 4 with a Hand-Held Maneuvering Unit. There are 881 pieces that make up this set.
The Mini-fig Scale Project Gemini would be a great addition to the existing LEGO Nasa models and a good model for any space enthusiast.
Congratulations to Steven for a job well done and we wish him all the best during this year’s first LEGO Ideas Review Stage.
More rumors are coming out from the leaking faucet. After the news came out regarding what to expect from the next 2020 wave of LEGO Marvel Superheroes sets, we now have additional info about the next series of LEGO DC Comics Superheroes sets coming this second half of 2020 courtesy of Promobricks.
LEGO DC Wonder Woman 1984
Similar to what LEGO did with DCEU’s Wonder Woman in 2017’s Wonder Woman Warrior Battle (76075), the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984 sequel will also be receiving the LEGO treatment. We have no information as to date regarding its exact set name but for the time being, lets refer to it as Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157). It features a large satellite dish with minifigure versions of Wonder Woman and Cheetah. This set is slated to be released in June, just in time for its tie-up film landing on theaters on June 5, 2020.
As it turns out, we can expect three new LEGO Batman sets to arrive also in June, one of which is labeled as ‘4+’. The smallest in the set, which is also the one tagged as for 4+ kids, is the Penguin Pursuit (76158). It features a Penguin minifigure and a small brick-built duck which we assume as the titular villain’s vehicle. It also includes a Bat Boat with a Batman minifigure. Based on its description, it somehow thematically resembles that of the LEGO Batman: The Penguin Face Off (76010) from 2014 save for the Bat Submarine.
We also have another mid-sized set which is called Joker’s Trike Chase (76159) that features a trike with a grotesque grin which obviously the vehicle of choice for Joker. It also includes a Batman minifigure together with his Batmobile. Other minifigures include Harley Quinn with her oversized, black and red hammer, and Robin.
The last set in this series and what seems to be the largest, is the Mobile Bat Base (76160). Retailing for 89.99 Euro, it includes the minifigures of Batman, Batgirl, Nightwing (red, New 52 version), Mr. Freeze, Bronze Tiger, and Man Bat. From what it seems, the Mobile Bat Base also features several interlocking vehicles.
Here’s a brief rundown of all the LEGO DC Comics Superheroes that we know will be arriving in June. Please take note that the set names mentioned above are just based on the set’s initial descriptions and may still change once LEGO makes their official reveal.
LEGO DC Comics Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157) – €39.99 | June 2020 release date
LEGO Batman Penguin Pursuit 4+ (76158) – €9.99 | June 2020 release date
LEGO Batman Joker’s Trike Chase (76159) – €49.99 | June 2020 release date
LEGO Batman Mobile Bat-Base (76160) – €89.99 | June 2020 release date
We caught a glimpse of things to come for LEGO’s licensed sets during the recently concluded Nuremberg Toy Fair. And for those of you who were following this news, it was pretty obvious that LEGO is putting a tight lid on some of these licensed sets until such time their respective embargos are lifted. However, news along the grapevine suggests that there is still more to expect from LEGO’s licensed themes, particularly from its 2020 LEGO Marvel Superheroes.
LEGO Marvel Eternals
According to a report from Promobricks, we can still expect a handful of LEGO Marvel sets that are based on new subthemes or titles. We already know that a LEGO Marvel Black Widow’s Helicopter Chase (76162) is coming out in March as a tie-in set for the upcoming Black Widow spin-off MCU film, and for the second half of 2020, we will also be seeing another round of MCU-inspired sets in the form of the LEGO Marvel Eternals sets. Specifically, we can expect four (4) sets for this subtheme somewhat similar to how LEGO released tie-in sets for the Spider-Man: Far From Home film. As of now, we only know of the price of the small set, 76145, under this Marvel subtheme which is expected to retail for 9.99 Euro. We’re looking for a release date sometime in October, or earlier during the second half of this year, just in time for the marketing campaign for the film which will land in theaters in November.
LEGO Marvel Spider-Man
Other than the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163) whose images were recently found in LEGO servers, only to be removed afterward, we can look forward to another LEGO Spidey set to follow soon. A LEGO Marvel Spider-Man vs Venom (76151) is also expected to arrive, focusing more on the web crawler’s titular symbiote nemesis. This development is exciting at many levels because other than putting the spotlight on Venom as a LEGO set, it further confirms the eventual cinematic crossover of MCU’s Spider-Man to that of Sony’s version of Venom. The LEGO Marvel Spider-Man vs Venom (76151) set is described to feature a large brick-built black mech lizard and a smaller vehicle with shooters. The black mech lizard is obviously the centerpiece of this set akin to the Venom Crawler. However, fans will be excited to know that other than the Spider-Man, Venom, and Iron-Spider minifigures included in this set, this will be our first-ever set to feature a Spider-Ham minifigure. That certainly is interesting.
LEGO Marvel Avengers
Loki is returning to the LEGO limelight with a new set dedicated to the mischievous Norse god. The LEGO Marvel Wrath of Loki (76152) is expected to be a substantially large 4+ set that features an Avenger Tower, a small Quinjet, and a green aircraft for Loki and five minifigures: Loki, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, and Captain Marvel.
S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Helicarrier will also be returning in LEGO form this 2020, though in a smaller version. Tagged as set 76153, it is expected to retail for 120 Euros, significantly smaller to that of 2015’s The SHIELD Hellicarrier (76042) which retailed for $350. However, this newer version of the Hellicarrier packs a lot of minifigs, including Iron Man, Thor, Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Nick Fury, War Machine and a SHIELD Agent. War Machne is said to have a new shoulder cannon, while another Marvel villain will be coming back in LEGO form – MODOK will be returning in this set, though not in minifigure form as we first saw him in Avengers: Hulk Lab Smash (76018) back in 2014. This newer version of MODOK will be brick-built so its kind of interesting how this will turn out. This newer SHIELD Hellicarrier (76153) will come in a gray and blue color scheme, plus a blue-yellow Quinjet that can land on the Hellicarrier itself.
Other than these two sets, we can also expect three additional Avengers-inspired sets such: a new Hulkbuster (76164) which includes minifigures of Iron Rescue, and two SHIELD Agents; the previously reported Iron Man Bust (76165), and a new and larger Avengers Tower (76165) featuring seven new minifigs: Red Skull, Iron Man, Black Widow, two SHIELD Agents, and two undisclosed villains or superheroes.
To sum it up here’s what we know so far about these 2020 LEGO Marvel Superheroes sets slated to arrive this year.
LEGO Marvel Eternals (76145) – €9.99 | October 2020 release date
LEGO Marvel Eternals (76154) – €19.99 | October 2020 release date
LEGO Marvel Eternals (76155) – €59.99 | October 2020 release date
