Exclusive LEGO Stranger Things Barb Minifigure Coming to SDCC 2019

LEGO has revealed its last exclusive SDCC 2019 LEGO minifigure earlier today. Following the reveal of other minifig exclusives such as the LEGO DC Zebra Batman and LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Advanced Suit, now comes one particular character from Netflix’s hit sci-fi series that’s too hard to forget. The LEGO Stranger Things Barb minifigure will be given away to San Diego Comic-Con 2019 attendees via electronic lottery on July 20. Needless to say, this minifigure will be worth its weight in gold among LEGO and Netflix fans and I can just imagine how this will be ridiculously priced over at eBay.

Barb Minifigure

Barb only made a brief appearance in the first few episodes of Stranger Things’ first season before she, unfortunately, fell prey to the terrifying Demogorgon. However, this is enough for the character to win the hearts of fans and the show’s cult following. This exclusive LEGO Stranger Things Barb minifigure is the third official LEGO Stranger Things product that the LEGO has officially released. It follows the impressive LEGO Stranger Things The Upside Down (75810) set currently available at LEGO Stores and LEGO Shop@Home, and the promotional make-an-take mini-build Castle Byers.

SDCC 2019 Exclusive Reveal: The LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Advanced Suit

In the tradition of San Diego Comic-Con’s LEGO exclusives, LEGO has now revealed this year’s first minifigure to be made available to participants. The LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Advanced Suit takes its cue from 2018’s hit Playstation 4 video game, Spider-Man

We can assume that SDCC 2019 attendees will have access to this LEGO minifig exclusive via the same electronic raffle/system as in previous years. Furthermore, according to info coming from Allen (aka The Brick Fan), there will also be a randomized instant-win raffle event where Comic-Con attendees can get a chance to win this LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Advanced Suit exclusive.

To be frank, I’m still hoping that The LEGO Group will still consider having Comic-Con LEGO exclusives such as this, be available to other LEGO fans who cannot attend these kinds of conventions for obvious geographical reasons. Perhaps LEGO can give a thought on how to make these minifigs available to the general public after a certain number of months. This will also somehow discourage scalpers for charging a ridiculous amount for this SDCC LEGO exclusives over at eBay.

Anyways, if you’re into this kind of LEGO collectibles, then be sure to bookmark and check back with us again as more info comes out regarding the details of how to avail of this minifig. I also expect additional LEGO SDCC 2019 minifigures to be revealed anytime soon.

LEGO Marvel Superheroes Spider-Man: Far From Home Minifigure Pack (40343)

LEGO Minifigure Packs

So what do you think of these new LEGO MF Pack? Which is your favorite? Share your thoughts in the comments below.  Thanks to Candid Bricks for the heads up!

Here’s a First Look at the LEGO Spider-Man: Far From Home Minifigure Pack (40343)

By now we can safely say that the frenzy for Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame has begun to subside, while faithful followers of the MCU franchise now look forward to Spider-Man: Far from Home this July. This sequel to Homecoming is the true final part of Phase 3, and has already gotten plenty of tie-ins coming soon from LEGO. However it’s not all adventurous set-pieces and hi-tech vehicles for LEGO Marvel’s Far from Home. They’ll also have some smaller products that can easily be afforded. Rather than one minifigure though, they have a bunch included in this one. Check out this upcoming LEGO Spider-Man: Far From Home Minifigure Pack (40343).

The first image of this product comes to us courtesy of French LEGO news source Brick Heroes. It’s a 49-piece blister pack with enough minifig components for three characters. With the Far From Home Minifigure Pack (40343) we get Spider-Man, Maria Hill and Peter’s friend Ned. There’re also leftovers to make a drone and accessories.

From what Brick Heroes says, we’ll only get the Maria Hill and Ned minifigs exclusively on this pack. That would make this set a hot commodity for collectors looking to complete the LEGO Spider-Man: Far from Home tie-ins. There’s no word yet on its availability, but the film premieres July 2.

For the time being, while waiting for the LEGO Spider-Man: Far From Home Minifigure Pack (40343), be sure to check out the rest of the LEGO tie-in sets under the Far From Home subtheme such as the Molten Man Battle (76128), Hydro-Man Attack (76129), and Stark Jet and the Drone Attack (76130) all currently available at shop.LEGO.com.

LEGO Disney Collectible Minifigure Series 2 (71024) Available Now on Shop@Home

These past few months have seen quite a bunch of Disney love LEGO news. We got the Ideas Steamboat Willie set (21317) this April. And in March we had the wonderful announcement of a new batch of Disney collectible minifigures (71024). It was scheduled to release in May. Well, it’s May now so it’s arrived.

In case you need a refresher, the LEGO Disney Collectible Minifigure Series 2 (71024) consists of 18 minifigs, many of which are new-for-2019. They come in packs of 60 collectible minifigure polybags, priced at $3.99 per polybag. The featured characters run the gamut from Disney Animated films (plus Pixar and Touchstone), to TV series and classic “black and white” shorts.

71024-19

As has been detailed around the end of March, collectors who would buy a 60-polybag pack can count on having two complete 18-character sets in all. Three new characters are “Chase” variants to hunt down.

The recent introduction of the LEGO Disney Collectible Minifigure Series 2 (71024) on Shop@Home makes for a rather sparse release wave at the start of May. Still, we can count on the availability of upcoming new sets to pick up again later on. The summer period’s still on after all.

Amazon Sale Discounts LEGO Star Wars Clone Scout Walker (75261) 20th Anniversary Edition

With so many LEGO sets having come out during this part of the year, having retailers discounting them is expected. For instance, Target has held sales of several tie-ins for “Avengers: Endgame” premiering this month. Amazon too has its fair share of new or recent LEGO sets at reduced prices.

Now, the global online marketplace has added another new LEGO set to its discount lineup. This is the LEGO Star Wars Clone Scout Walker – 20th Anniversary Edition (75261). This is part of a legacy product lineup released just last week, celebrating two decades of LEGO Star Wars for franchise fans.

While priced at $29.99 over in Shop@Home, Amazon has helpfully done its usual 20% price knockoff on the set. LEGO Star Wars collectors can thus get the Anniversary Scout Walker (75261) for $23.99 on Amazon. It’s a beautifully intense throwback to the Clone Wars saga as rendered in LEGO form.

The LEGO Star Wars Clone Scout Walker – 20th Anniversary Edition (75261) is full of great builds. Aside from the walker itself, there’s also a Separatist war machine and a Kashyyk Wookie gun mount. Minifigures include a Wookie, Kashyyk Clone Trooper, Battle Droid, and a 1999 edition Darth Vader collectible minifig.

Character Distribution and Rarity for LEGO Disney Collectible Minifigures Series 2 (71024) Revealed

Just over a week ago, LEGO finally unveiled in full their second Disney-themed Collectible Minifigures batch, numbered 71024. Already fans are salivating at the 18 minifigures included: the “Ducktales” main cast, vintage-era Mickey and Minnie, plus supporting cast for Aladdin and the Incredibles. By the time the collectibles become available next week, the anticipation will be at some fever pitch.

When dealing with LEGO collectible minifigures, there’s a pattern on how many minifigs of a character is available per box. Everybody knows that. So what are the chances of getting what you need from Disney Collectible Minifigures 2 (71024)? Brickset, seminal LEGO set guide and news source, has the answer.

A LEGO Collectible Minifig box has 60 packs, compared to the 18 individual characters of Disney Collectible 2 (71024). Brickset determined that collectors buying the whole 60-pack box will likely complete the set two times (18×2=36). This is because three characters have been designated as “chase,” or rare minifigures; which means there are only two each in every Collectible box.

To summarize, Brickset and several other news sources in communication with them can confirm that of the 60 packs in a box, nine characters have four packs each. Six characters have three each; and the three chase minifigs have only two copies in a box.

  • FOUR: Vintage Mickey AND Minnie, Scrooge, Chip, Dale, Elsa, Anna, Frozone, Hades
  • THREE: Jafar, Jasmine, Hercules, Jack Skellington, Sally, Edna Mode
  • CHASE/TWO: Huey, Dewey, Louie

One last thing: five minifigures have capes or cloth accessories that are kept in a smaller inner bag within the bag. Better watch where you cut with your scissors or you might ruin them:

  • Elsa, Anna, Jafar, Hercules, Jack Skellington

Enjoy collecting Disney next week.

LEGO Officially Reveals the LEGO Disney Collectible Minifigures Series 2 (71024)

Well, this really made my day. In its official Facebook page, LEGO greeted us with a very welcome surprise, and officially announcing its next wave of collectible minifigures. It has been teased since early this January with the release of the 2019 LEGO Catalog, particularly along side with the LEGO Movie 2 CMF. The LEGO Disney Collectible Minifigures Series 2 (71024) consists of 18 minifigures, featuring timeless, classic characters and newer ones. LEGO’s selection for this wave doesn’t disappoint because some of these minifigure offerings complement the ones that were released before in LEGO Disney CMF Series 1 (71012) – such as Princess Jasmin and Jaafar; and Edna Mode and Frozone. I am personally looking forward for the Ducktales and the Nightmare Before Christmas minifigs.

Last 2018 Bricktober LEGO Minifigure Set (5005256) to Finally Hit US LEGO Stores and Shop@Home Next Month

Sometimes, even we who report on the latest LEGO-related news might be too hasty to make definitive statements on any development. Last year we ran several articles on the convoluted release of the 2018 LEGO Bricktober collectible minifigure sets in the US, as they were Toys R Us exclusives and needed to be carried by other retailers in that country.

One by one three of the 4-minifigure Bricktober sets – 5005254, 5005255 and 5005257 – had their chance to appear in either LEGO Stores or retail partners. The fourth, LEGO Marvel (5005256) was never announced for anything and was only ever available on TRU Canada, apparently as an exclusive. By December we had written off 5005256 ever being found normally in America.

That only shows what we know; when it comes to LEGO we should never count them out. According to our fellow LEGO news source and online set guide Brickset, the last piece of the 2018 Bricktober collectible minifigure puzzle is finally hitting the US, soon.

Apparently we have the MCU (obviously) to thank for LEGO Marvel Bricktober (5005256) getting its time in the stateside spotlight. Did you forget? “Captain Marvel” is premiering March 8, and “Avengers: Endgame” follows shortly on April 26. There’s still one, more but it’s these, particularly the second that matters here. There’s nothing like some nice synergy to bring the “prodigal” minifig set home at last.

Long story short, LEGO Stores and Shop@Home US will carry the 2018 Bricktober Marvel minifigure set (5005256) from March 1 to 7. It’ll be added free on any minimum LEGO purchase of $75; even better, it doesn’t have to be all LEGO Marvel products. Now borderline-impatient collectors can get their hands on War Machine, Wong, Tony Stark and Winter Soldier (three Thanos survivors and one victim) to complete the set.
