LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures Series 2 (71028) Coming in September

Since its launch back in August 2018, the LEGO Harry Potter CMF (71022) has proved itself popular among LEGO HP fans, with most sharing the same sentiment that a follow-up series is long overdue.  There have been rumors circulating online that another CMF series dedicated to the magical theme is now in the works. And this time it seems that LEGO has finally confirmed its arrival. From the looks of it, we can now expect the LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures Series 2 (71028) starting September.

The news of the upcoming LEGO HP CMF Series 2 has been hinted upon by LEGO itself through its recently released digital catalogs. What is interesting is that though virtually all regional versions of the catalogs mention a new CMF series in September, the Australian version of the LEGO catalog points it out to be 71028.

Though it may be pointed out that the catalog listing does not in any way mention 71028 to be a Harry Potter-themed CMF, leaks as early as last month show it to be otherwise. I’m not in the liberty of showing these images here, but a cursory search over at Instagram for example will show you the way – that is if you don’t bother looking at spoilers. What we can determine from this reveal by LEGO is the fact that the LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigure Series 2 (71028) is the next CMF to be released this year and we can expect it to be in stores by September.

In case you missed it, here’s what you can expect from this upcoming CMF. Take note that there are a total of 16 minifigs to collect in this series, and the following are just some of the characters that we know so far:

  • Professor Pomona Sprout with mandrake
  • Luna Lovegood with new lion hat accessory (unlike that from the lion costume from TLM2 CMF 71023)
  • Professor Albus Dumbledore  as seen from the Chamber of Secrets, together with our first most recent LEGO version of Fawkes
  • Kingsley Shacklebolt with broom accessory
  • Neville Longbottom in school robes (unlike that from 71022) with a Book of Monsters figure
  • Bellatrix Lestrange in her Azkaban outfit, and newspaper accessory
  • Harry Potter with Advanced Potion-Making book
  • Moaning Myrtle
  • Griphook in his Gringotts outfit

So what do you think of the new LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures Series 2 (71028)? Let me know in the comments below.  Special thanks to the Brickfinder for the heads up.

LEGO Deadpool Duck Is Back as an Exclusive LEGO VIP Reward

The LEGO VIP Rewards seems to be in the habit of bringing back old Comic-Con exclusives. After offering the LEGO SDCC 2012 Shazam minifigure as a sweepstakes reward for LEGO VIP members back in January, we now have another offering from the LEGO VIP Rewards Center that LEGO fans will be happy to have. The super rare LEGO SDCC 2017 Deadpool Duck minifigure is back and here’s our chance to get it.

Similar to the equally rare Shazam minifig, Deadpool Duck is back as part of the LEGO VIP Rewards monthly sweepstakes. Worth 50 VIP points, you can have up to 15 raffle entries if you wish to have bigger odds of winning this exclusive.

As you may know already, Deadpool Duck is the unholy combination of the two of the most revered, action-packed characters from Marvel Comics: Howard the Duck and of course, the Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool. The head of the minifigure comes from the same mold as that of Donald Duck from the LEGO Disney CMF collection, while the torso features a unique print of Deadpool’s vest which only comes in three LEGO variants, including the one from 2018’s LEGO SDCC 2018 Sheriff Deadpool, and the only Deadpool minifig that comes in a set which is from the LEGO Marvel Superheroes Wolverine’s Chopper Showdown (6866)

To make this reward extra special, LEGO is adding an acrylic case, including the original SDCC 2017 collectible packaging, together with the minifig.

LEGO Deadpool Duck

The LEGO Deadpool Duck VIP Rewards sweepstakes will run until June 21. Just be sure to check the list of countries where this promo is available.

Check Out the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 20 (71027) Box Distribution

LEGO has officially announced the character names of its latest LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 20 (71027), via its social media channels. If you recall, LEGO gave us a glimpse of what to expect from Series 20 during this year’s New York Toy Fair, while third-party retailers gave us a closer look at what to expect from this latest CMF line.  Check out LEGO’s announcement via its Facebook page.

Additionally, reviews about the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 20 are starting to pour in showing us what to expect from each box, and how many of each minifig character can we expect from it. If you want to have an in-depth look at what this latest series has to offer, then you may want to refer to The Brothers Brick’s review.

Overall, there are 16 characters to collect for Series 20 with a total of 60 blind bags in a box with 3 to 5 copies of each character. Here’s a quick rundown of how this 10th-year commemorative CMF series is distributed.

As noted by TBB, the box distribution for LEGO CMF Series 20 (71027) is similar to what LEGO did with the LEGO Collectible Minifigures DC Superheroes  (71026).  So eventually, we can get three complete sets of Series 20 minifigures in a box of 60 blind bags, with several minifigs to spare or resell.

It also turns out that we can expect this series to arrive earlier than what I previously reported. The LEGO CMF Series 20 is slated to arrive on April 19, 2020, though it is still be seen whether LEGO brand stores will already be open by then considering The LEGO Group’s most recent announcement regarding its store closures due to COVID-19. Whatever is the case, we can still hopefully rely on LEGO Shop@Home for our purchases.

Here’s A Chance to Win an Exclusive LEGO Star Wars Maz Kanata Minifigure

The LEGO VIP Rewards Center has been updated to include another monthly sweepstakes promo. Last January, we saw the return of the uber-exclusive LEGO SDCC 2012 Shazam Minifigure as it was raffled away to LEGO VIP members. And now, LEGO fans and collectors will be delighted to know that up for grabs this time will be another exclusive in the form of a limited-edition, LEGO Star Wars Maz Kanata minifigure.

This exclusive LEGO Star Wars Maz Kanata minifigure is exclusively signed by motion-capture artist and model Arti Shah, who doubled for Lupita Nyong’o in playing the role of the legendary pirate queen in The Force Awakens. Arti Shah also took on several roles in the Star Wars movie franchise which includes creature and Power Droid roles in The Last Jedi and Rogue One respectively.

This collectible LEGO Star Wars Maz Kanata minifigure also comes in a UV acrylic case and is subsequently awarded by UK Graders (UKG) with the highest Gold Level grading.  Here’s a brief description of it from the LEGO Rewards Center.

LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 20 (71027) Official Images Released

After making their debut during last month’s New York Toy Fair, several official images of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 20 (71027) have now been shared online by authorized LEGO retailer, The Minifigure Store. LEGO is yet to officially list them via their online store, with these latest minifig collectibles slated to be released sometime in May.

From the looks of it, this latest CMF series will be introducing a bunch of new LEGO elements and pieces, including new costume pieces that most LEGO fans are looking forward to. Like those before it, most of the characters in this series will also feature two different minifigure head prints or expressions. There is no overarching theme for Series 20 though there is one character in particular that pays tribute to the Collectible Minifigures Series‘ 10th year anniversary. The Green Brick Guy comes with a special 10th year commemorative tile which may prove to be popular among collectors.

The LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 20 (71027) is expected to retail for $4.99 per blind bag once they are released both in-store and online over at LEGO Shop@Home.

LEGO Ninjago Golden Zane Minifigure Accessory Set (40374) Now Up at LEGO Shop@Home

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.
