LEGO Disney Train and Station (71044) Revealed!

LEGO has just revealed its next direct-to-consumer (D2C) set that will surely win the hearts of Disney Park fans. Coming in at 2,925 pieces, the LEGO Disney Train and Station (71044) building set is not just aesthetically pleasing to look at, but also includes a Powered Up Hub and Motor which can be controlled remotely using a smart device. This set will retail for $329.99 USD and will be available to LEGO VIP members beginning August 21, with a general public release on September 1st. This is the next large Disney set that LEGO has offered following the release of the humongous LEGO Disney Castle (71040) back in 2016. In case you’ve noticed, the LEGO Disney Train and Station also gives us our first proper Goofy minifigure. We first saw him given the LEGO treatment in the Mickey and Friends Beach House (10827) Duplo set, but it does not kind of fit the common minifig category. Thankfully, we finally have an official LEGO minifigure version of him. I just wished that LEGO has thrown in a Pluto minifig as well.

Read on for the LEGO Disney Train and Station’s full product description and official images.

Take a Look at These 21 Winning Minifigure Vignettes From the LEGO House

I’m a huge fan of LEGO minifigure vignettes and it goes to show that the people behind the LEGO House in Billund also has a soft spot for this form of LEGO art. In celebration of the 2nd year anniversary of the LEGO House this 2019, LEGO Ideas launched a contest that encourages builders to create fun builds that will wow visitors in the famous House of the Brick. This building contest ran for a month from May 6 to June 6, with the winners announced a couple of months ago. The contest had quite a following with more than 40 winning entries that were chosen. Out of this group of winners, there are 21 winning minifigure vignettes that were specifically chosen to have the bragging rights of being displayed for a year inside the LEGO House until 2020.

These 21 winning minifigure vignettes depict our little actors either in the business of doing their daily chores or living out the adventure of their lifetime. What makes these winning entries stand out is the particular brand of LEGO humor that they convey which is quickly recognizable to any LEGO fan.

Not only do the creators of these minifig depictions got the bragging rights of displaying their work inside the House of the Brick, but they also received the exclusive LEGO House Dinosaurs (40366) set that can never be found anywhere else. As a badge of their outstanding accomplishment, each of the winners was also awarded a uniquely printed personalized LEGO brick, with the name and country of the builder to accompany the model.

Winning Minifigure Vignettes

I’ve compiled these 21 winning minifigure vignettes for our viewing enjoyment and easy reference. You may also click on the following links below for more info on these entries.

Which among these winning minifigure entries is your favorite? Let’s talk about it in the comments below.

Coffee Cup Cafe by printed_slope

Winning Minifigure Vignettes

A man was getting his cup of coffee one day from the Coffee Cup Cafe. Along comes a Gingerbread Man carrying a red cup, like this is nothing odd. Presumably, he also wants a coffee. That or he wants to ask for spare change or donations for something. The man and the barista have never seen anything like this before and just stare open-mouthed at him in surprise.

An Unexpected Visitor by AleksBricks

Winning Minifigure Vignettes

I got my inspiration from Western times and movies. I knew from the start I wanted to make a fun scene with a dinosaur because I love dinosaur movies. 

Royal Guard by printed_slope

Winning Minifigure Vignettes

The Royal Guard is just doing his duty. Some annoying tourists come along and decide to see if they can distract him. One of the tourists is taking a photo while the other two try to get a reaction by brandishing an ice cream and a hot dog in his face. The Royal Guard is getting ticked off and is doing all he can to not lose his temper. A bobby policeman has just entered the scene – will he tell the tourists off?

Surfing Wave by printed_slope

Winning Minifigure Vignettes

Take to the waves with this creation of a surfing wave. A shark minifig deftly maneuvers the surfboard through the wave. Unlike the surfer who has just wiped out and the wave has sent him “over the falls!”

Great White Surprise by nasa105

Winning Minifigure Vignettes

What a bright sunny day it is on the seaside fishing pier! The old fisherman is out enjoying his weekend fishing trip, waiting for a bite on his line and making sure those pesky seagulls don’t get into his lunchbox. However, the clever great white shark has his own weekend surprise… A weekend snack to be precise!

Presentation Without Pants by jackmojo1

Winning Minifigure Vignettes

I have this recurring dream (nightmare, maybe) that I’m giving an important presentation at work and for some reason, I’ve forgotten to wear pants. Everyone is laughing and I’m just standing there mortified. Well, this seemed pretty hilarious to me so here we are!

No Space For Little Room by Ryanzilbn

Winning Minifigure Vignettes

When my friend coming over, either I have no space to build my hauls or my lego collections are too big. Perhaps a third world problem?

Surprised Postman by ForlornEmpire

Winning Minifigure Vignettes

A mailbox scares the postman!

The Space Miners’ Cavern by MinifigInSpace

Winning Minifigure Vignettes

From giant crystals to strange alien creatures, The Space Miners’ Cavern is full of surprises! A heavy-duty trapdoor protects the valuable energy crystals below and doubles up as a way to keep the local inhabitants from making unexpected visits to the surface (at least theoretically). 

My Turn Please by benlouisa

There can’t be many things in the world that are more fun than controlling a Chicken Mech dressed as a chicken!

Swimming Race by printed_slope

As the swimming race is about to start, the contestants take their places on the starter blocks. One swimmer looks over at his fellow swimmers and is surprised to see a person in a shark costume and another person in a penguin costume. Sharks and penguins may be good swimming animals, but does wearing a costume means a better or faster swimmer? We will just have to see who wins the race!

Crazy Visit to the Natural History Museum by LuisPG

A quiet visit to the Museum of Natural History can turn into a crazy adventure when the children discover that the ribs of the whale could be swords.

Space Surprise! by Brickpiler

A spaceman has returned from his latest adventure with a batch of flowers, how thoughtful! Unfortunately for him, the foreign floral he brought back is the favorite snack of the space monster that has followed him back to base.

Bank Robbery by LukashevaInna

While the police eat donuts and drink coffee, the robbers dug a tunnel into the Bank vault.

Your Lucky Day by LegoFjotten

Just that special day where your luck changes for the better… or worse. Or even both, at the same time.

 

Fight for Treasures by ChaMi

Although there are so many treasures, they are still fighting. And the winner will get them all!

Japanese Garden Vignette by AuntMaskedSquid

This detailed model depicts a Japanese lady looking into the water during a walk in her garden. It contains a koi pond, pagoda bridge, bamboo, and many different kinds of trees in its 37 studs long x 27 studs wide x 22 studs high area and is the perfect display model. This model is designed to test the limits of what Lego can do and how Lego can look with its elegant arches, gentle slopes, and picturesque stepping stones.

Bad Dreams by LegoFjotten

Ever had a dream with that nagging feeling that you forgot something before you rushed off to school or work? This poor biker is dreaming he forgot to put on pants before he went to the garage to meet his buddy.
If people eat the leg of a bird…

Kitchen by LukashevaInna

WATCH: A Closer Look at the LEGO CMF Series 19 (71025) Box Distribution

We saw its official images a couple of weeks ago, and this time we now have an idea on how many complete sets we can expect right out of the box of the upcoming LEGO CMF Series 19 (71025). YouTuber The Brick Shack managed to get his hands on three unopened boxes of this latest CMF line and has now revealed that we can expect three complete sets from each box of Series 19 collectible minifigs. Watch his video below.

Towards the end of his video, The Brick Shack has confirmed that the box distribution for the LEGO CMF Series 19 are as follows:

  • Dog Walker x3
  • Fox Girl x3
  • Video Gamer x5
  • Monkey King x3
  • Shower Guy x3
  • Coder Girl x4
  • Black Knight x4
  • Mountain Biker x3
  • Mummy x5
  • Firefighter x3
  • Explorer x4
  • Pet Owner x3
  • Pizza Guy x4
  • Rainbow Bear x4
  • Intergalactic Bounty Hunter x5
  • Rugby Player x4

From the looks of it, you can snag three complete sets out of an unopened box plus 12 additional loose minifigs on the side since each box contains 60 blind bags priced at $3.99 USD each. Furthermore, it was also revealed that the 1st and 2nd row of each box offers a complete set of LEGO CMF Series 19. So it goes without saying that should you wait for their release on the 1st week of September, then better keep an eye on that freshly opened box in-store if you want to get all of them in one go. It also saves you the time and effort of feeling your way through each blind bag for that matter.

Special thanks to The Brick Shack for sharing this info.

LEGO Ideas Updates: Here Are Additional Product Ideas That Qualify for the Second 2019 Review Stage

It has been a while since I reported on what’s going on with the LEGO Ideas platform, particularly on the various product ideas that garnered the much desired 10K fan approval from the LEGO fan community. And now that were just counting the weeks before the Second 2019 Review Stage commences, I’ve decided to revisit these product ideas that have now entered the coveted ranks of the 10K Club. If you recall, we already shared some details on the first product ideas that earned the support of LEGO fans earlier this year such as the Thunderbirds Are Go, UCS Space Shuttle Atlantis, The Office, and Gravity Falls Mystery Shack. These submissions are among the first product ideas that made it to this year’s Second Review Stage. And after a couple of months, let’s now take a look at the rest of these original brick creations that garnered the necessary fan votes to qualify for the next LEGO Ideas review stage. Do take note that these are not yet the final listing since we still have roughly four weeks before the Second 2019 Review Stage begins. Let’s check these out, and tell us your personal pick in the comments below.

The Haunted Mansion: 50th Anniversary by GoodOlPrice

LEGO Product Ideas

When hinges creak in doorless chambers, and strange and frightening sounds echo through the halls…
Welcome, Foolish Mortals.

As the 50th Anniversary of both Walt Disney World and its version of The Haunted Mansion approaches, I wanted to offer up this project up as a tribute to a truly iconic attraction.

Fans young and old will be able to appreciate a hauntingly displayable front and a playable back with plenty of spooky rooms from the attraction to explore.

Winnie the Pooh by benlouisa

LEGO Product Ideas

Welcome to 100 Acre Wood, the home of Winnie the Pooh and his friends. Explore Pooh’s home with Winnie the Pooh himself, Tigger, Rabbit, Owl (he’s sitting in the tree), Piglet and Eeyore.

This fun creation has been designed to look great as a display piece but also has great playability. With a removable house roof access to Pooh’s house and also the hidden nesting area in the tree is made easy.

Japanese Tea Garden by Coosey_Goosey

LEGO Product Ideas

With this model, I aimed to capture the beauty, tranquility, and style of the traditional Japanese Tea Garden. 

This model contains many of the iconic features of Japanese Tea Gardens, including several statues, a torii, bonsai trees, a pond, a tall arched bridge, a pagoda, and a bench to sit on, relax, and take it all in.

At the backside of the model, the ground is cut away to reveal tree roots, a koi fish in the stream, and a hidden underground cavern.

Pursuit of Flight by JKBrickworks

LEGO Product Ideas

This small kinetic sculpture is designed to celebrate the wonder of flight. The two planes tilt as they move from side to side, giving the illusion of flying gracefully through the air. The mechanism is controlled using a crank on the side of the model.

NASA Spacecraft by Micro_Model_Maker

Always liked the thought of space? or maybe the beautifully designed spacecraft? or perhaps the missions? if the answer is yes to any of these then this project may be for you!

This project features 4 of Nasa’s spacecraft, these include the Discovery Shuttle, Hubble Telescope, Pioneer 10 Probe, and Viking 1. 

Medieval Blacksmith by Namirob

I am very happy to present to you, my Medieval Blacksmith. (This model inspired me by Cabanaminis – you can also find Merchant’s house there).

After two months of work, my model was finished.  I put a special focus on many small details and the design. Also, I’ve varied a lot with the colors to give the Blacksmith the best possible expression. A harmonious color scheme was important as well, but one of the biggest challenges was the roof because there are many different angles and special techniques.

Of course, there is also an interior in this model. You can explore two different storeys, which you can see by a lift-off technique. On the first storey the forge can be seen and on the second is the living area.

From the outside, the Medieval Blacksmith is surrounded by many plants, animals and a large tree. Moreover, this set includes 3 minifigures and a lot of small details. In addition, the big carmine is characteristic of this set.

History Museum by Bricky_Brick

Welcome to the History Museum!

Here you can learn a lot from the past, and meet characters and works that are important to this day.

You will find the tomb of Anubis, the Discobolus of Myron, the Sunflowers of Van Gogh, The Fabergé Egg and many other works and artifacts without forgetting the pendant chandelier. It is a modular building with 3 floors fully compatible with the official Lego buildings. This product idea includes a Museum Director, Receptionist, Security guard, History Teacher, Student Photographer, and a Female Tourist.

LEGO Jurassic World Video Game Coming to Nintendo Switch

The LEGO Jurassic World video game has been out for quite some time. Since 2015, it has been available across major gaming platforms even older ones such as the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. And as far as Nintendo is concerned, this collaboration between TT Fusion and WB Interactive has everything covered including being available to the 3DS and Wii U users. This time around, Nintendo Switch owners will have the chance of revisiting all four films but of course with a LEGO twist, starting September 17.

The LEGO Jurassic World for the Nintendo Switch will feature the original games based on all four Jurassic films: Jurassic Park (1993), The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), Jurassic Park (2001) and Jurassic World (2015). Other than its expected launch date on September 17, we still have no info on its pricing and other game features that may be unique for its Switch version. It would be interesting if WB Interactive will throw in a DLC or add a new level on the game considering that we already have Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom from last year.

The Nintendo eShop hasn’t updated its listing yet to include this latest offering so I suggest that you keep tabs with the online selling portal as well for any updates on the Switch version of the LEGO Jurassic World. For now, you may want to check out the latest LEGO Jurassic World Isla Nublar sets now available at shop.LEGO.com. Just click on the following links below.

Take a Look at the Wackiest Bedrock Inventions in this LEGO Ideas Contest

The winners have been chosen! If you recall from last June, the LEGO Ideas platform launched a contest that challenges builders to come up with their wackiest Bedrock inventions inspired by the recent LEGO Ideas The Flintstones (21316) set. The building champs have been finally selected, with a grand prize winner and two runner-ups bringing home the titles of being the coolest builders around Bedrock. These are fun builds actually, and I would definitely like to try and build them myself if given the opportunity. Let’s check them out.

Runner-Ups

Mini Scale Rockhead Quarry

Wackiest Bedrock Inventions

This build is amazing at so many levels. First off, I’m a fan of mini and microbuilds and this winning entry from Digibricks_Kit managed to capture all these familiar dinos in such a tiny scale. The best part of it is that this minibuild was even able to provide a humorous context for this creation where a three-stud tall Fred and Barney are easily seen busy operating their, well, dinos.

Yabba Dabba Dinky!
Mini Fred and Barney are working 9 to 5 down at Rockhead Quarry, but when the whistle blows (or tweets) its time to rock!
Featuring:
  • Fred on Diplodocus Crane
  • Barney on Allosaurus Roller
  • Triceratops Bulldozer
  • Site office
  • Whistle-bird
  • Quarry base with cliff
All digitally crafted in loving, intricate mini-scale detail!
The Ultimate Stoneage Gadget Kit

Wackiest Bedrock Inventions

Just what essential tools does a typical Bedrock citizen needs? Just drop by Sammy’s Stone Age Store and get the best recommendations out there. LEGO builder Jcreations912 came up with a list of handy dino-powered tools that you see in this Ultimate Stoneage Gadget Kit such as an insatiable grass-gobbling dino, a sharp-beaked bird for those hard to cut leather clothing, and a portable sawing fish just to name a few. This is THE gadget kit that a Bedrock citizen will ever need.

Attention! All Bedrock citizens!
New at Sammy’s Stone-Age Store is the latest and greatest…  …Household Gadget Kit!
This new, highly useful kit is packed with the latest and best quality of Bedrocks inventions. It has everything that you could need to help you out around the home.

How can you call yourself a modern stone-age citizen without all these modern conveniences?
Items included:
  • A grass gobbling Dinosaurus gobblus
  • The amazing watering-can Pelecanus waterus
  • A sharp-nosed Fishus sawus
  • A sharp-beaked Birdus cuttus

The items in this kit work in real life. e.g. as you push the lawnmower, its mouth opens and closes and the birds’ beaks open and close.

 

Grand Prize Winner

Mammoth Rocket Ride

Wackiest Bedrock Inventions

Bedrock residents know the importance of continuous innovation especially in the field of the newly discovered area of air transportation. Applying the latest science of jet propulsion, this Mammoth Rocket Ride represents the pinnacle of their technological achievements. Builder Stevenhoward27 even managed to turn it in a 2-in-1 transporting vehicle if in case the wholly mammoth got a bad case of the colds.

In an attempt to travel further distances across Bedrock in shorter times and to beat the daily rush-hour traffic, the Mammoth Rocket was conceived.  With a quick and powerful boost of water sprayed through the trunk of a wholly mammoth strapped into a carved out giant oak tree this rocket will launch its two pilots across the skies and get them to their destination in no time.  As an added bonus, this launch platform is mobile!  Strapped to the back of a happy dino, you can take off from anywhere you’d like!  The Mammoth Rocket is still being tested, but the engineers have high hopes of reaching space… possibly even traveling to the greatest rock quarry of all time, the moon!

As for their rewards for coming up with these wackiest Bedrock inventions, the Grand Prize winner received an exclusive, custom-built LEGO Bedrock Building Champ Trophy plus an array of cool LEGO Ideas sets such as of course the LEGO Ideas Flintstones (21316), Pop-Up Book (21315), Voltron (21311), Ship in a Bottle (21313) and Tron Legacy (21314). On top of this, the building champ also received a $300 shopping spree at LEGO Shop@Home.

So what do you think of these creations? Which among these wackiest Bedrock inventions would you like to try and build? Let me know in the comments below, and for the latest LEGO Ideas sets out there, be sure to visit shop.LEGO.com. Happy building!

This Custom LEGO Lord of the Rings Sauron Bids For You To Submit

Fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s timeless classic know very well how central to the story is the One Ring that has been so coveted by many during the countless millenia. Created by the Lord of Darkness himself, Sauron will never stop until he gets his hands once again to his source of power and existence. And Sauron’s feeling of morbid triumph and diabolical satisfaction is perfectly captured by builder Aaron Newman in this retelling of one of literature’s vilest characters. The Dark Lord of Mordor is relentless in making sure that the One Ring finds his way back to him. In fact, we see Sauron even wield the powerful Ring in the first scenes of the blockbuster film, Lord of the Rings. This moment was excellently rendered in bricks in this custom LEGO Lord of the Rings Sauron as you can see below.

LEGO Lord of the Rings Sauron

Aaron’s vision of Sauron was directly inspired by the 2001 film where we see the armor-clad behemoth hammering away the overwhelmed forces of Middle-Earth. This custom LEGO Sauron features a realistic build that is very imposing coming in at 13 inches in height. The details on Sauron’s helmet and mace are quite spot-on, with Aaron effectively using those new LEGO Ninjago blade pieces to Sauron’s advantage.

The rest of the body is also properly scaled, giving this custom LEGO Sauron a deceitfully fragile look as the antagonist would like to make his enemies believe. Its slim figure is basically compensated with its heavily armored garb, complete with a pair of capes and a destructive mace. If you wish to know more about the design process that went through the creation of this build, then you may want to read Aaron’s blog entry for this custom LEGO Lord of the Rings Sauron MOC.
