New LEGO Disney Princess Storybook Collection Revealed

New LEGO Disney sets were also revealed by third-party retailers that introduces a new collection of minidolls that are quite different from what LEGO has released before.  These notable ‘microdolls’ are included in LEGO’s new line of LEGO Disney Princess Storybook collection alongside other new sets that will arrive in January next year.  These new offerings include one 4+ set and five regular sets intended for kids 5 years and above.

Similar to the LEGO Ideas Pop-Up Book (21315), these new LEGO Disney Princess Storybook sets features buildable scenes from some of the Disney classic films that can be neatly tucked in or folded like a typical book. And perhaps to make this play feature possible, LEGO opted to modify its current version of existing minidolls and give it a new twist. These ‘microdolls’ are obviously shorter in height and come with larger eye prints.

Read on and check out for more images of these new LEGO Disney Princess Storybook sets, together with other regular sets that will be released come January 1st. I’ve also included their expected retail price in Euros and will update this post once more info comes in.

Upcoming LEGO Star Wars 2020 Sets Confirmed By Online Retailer

After giving us a peek at things to come during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Swiss online toy retailer Meinspielzeug has listed what seems to be our first batch of upcoming LEGO Star Wars 2020 sets. Images are still missing of course since its understandable that they may still be under an embargo. However, since we’re just essentially a couple of months away before their January 2020 release, some retailers are now gradually updating their databases.

If you also recall back in August, there was a rumor going around that LEGO might be releasing another set similar to that of the LEGO Star Wars busts that were initially offered as exclusives. As it seems, builds that follow the genre of such sets like the LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Bust (75227) which was released as a Target 2019 Star Wars Celebration exclusive, and the LEGO Star Wars Sith Trooper Bust (77901) exclusively offered to SDCC 2019 attendees, will now be offered mainstream. Meinspielzeug has now confirmed this, together with a handful of other upcoming LEGO Star Wars sets that you might want to keep tabs with and save on for your post-Christmas LEGO purchases.

Here are some of the listings for these LEGO Star Wars 2020 sets as confirmed on Meinspielzeug’s website. As of now, only the set’s piece count and retail price (in Swiss Francs) are posted, but I guess this will suffice in giving us an early impression of how these sets will measure up.

What I also find interesting is the fact that both the Stormtrooper and Boba Fett Busts seem to have almost twice the number of pieces as compared to its predecessors, giving the impression that they are considerably larger.

Other interesting sets that I’m looking forward to is the Mandalorian Battle Pack and that TIE Dagger. Both are new sets under the LEGO Star Wars theme considering that the former is a direct tie-in under the Disney+ Mandalorian series (which is about to launch in a few hours), while the latter is a new Star Wars vehicle that we will see in the big screen when Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker debuts next month.

So what do you think of this list of new LEGO Star Wars 2020 sets? Which of them are you looking forward to? Comment down below to share your thoughts.

Disney LEGO Stores to Host Midnight Sales for Triple Force Friday

We’re just counting the days before Triple Force Friday kicks in, and in case you’re planning to head over at Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California or at Disney Springs at Disney World in Orlando, Florida then you may want to pay a visit at the Disney LEGO Stores in these locations on October 3 to 4.

The Disney Parks blog site has announced that in keeping up with the tradition of launching a new Star Wars film and its tie-in merchandise, the LEGO Stores located in the abovementioned Disney parks will be offering an early midnight sale which will include new LEGO Star Wars sets based on the last installment of the Star Wars Skywalker saga The Rise of Skywalker, Disney+’s The Mandalorian series, and a couple of LSW sets based on earlier Star Wars movies. Truth be told, these sets were already made available at some online retailers and were even spotted on store shelves of third-party retailers ahead of their official launch next week. But in case you haven’t made up your mind on that next LEGO Star Wars purchase, then sealing the deal on Triple Force Friday is a great way to earn some exclusive freebies and huge discounts.

Here’s a quick reference to this sales event as mentioned by Disney Parks.

You can join in the conversation on social using Triple #ForceFriday and at in-store retail celebrations around the globe when products set on Oct. 4. Fans in Orlando and Anaheim will be able to experience Oct. 4 midnight shopping at World of Disney at Disney Springs and Downtown Disney. Disney Springs will also feature midnight shopping at the LEGO Store, along with Star Wars-themed food and beverage offerings and a LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon Master Build Event.

So if you have plans of tracking down the latest and hottest Star Wars merchandise at these Disneyland locations then be sure to add the LEGO Stores in these locations to your bucket list. Traditionally, these sales events are quite popular to Star Wars and LEGO fans because of the pretty nice promos that LEGO attaches to it. From October 4 to 6, fans with qualifying LEGO Star Wars purchases of $75 and above will entitle them for a free and exclusive LEGO Star Wars Battle of Endor 20th Anniversary (40362) set.

Other than the new LEGO Star Wars sets that will launch on October 4, LSW fans that are looking for a good bargain will also pleased to know that the majority of currently available LEGO Star Wars sets will be offered at great discounts. We can expect that these discounts will go live as early as midnight of October 3 leading to October 4, and this will be offered across LEGO Stores both in-store and online. Better be quick though, since these discounted LEGO sets can run out pretty quickly. I’ll post some updates as soon as I can once new info comes in so stay tuned.

Disney+ Will Feature A Collection of LEGO Star Wars Animated Series

Disney is already paving the way for the arrival of its ambitious Disney+ streaming service that may prove to be a strong rival against the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime. Details are still scant as of the moment regarding the repertoire of its movies and series, but one thing that we can be sure of is that Star Wars fans will definitely get their money’s worth with all the exclusive Star Wars content that they have access to. This includes the much-awaited spin-off series The Mandalorian and additional content on The Clone Wars. To top it off, subscribers will have exclusive access to previous and upcoming LEGO Star Wars content all compiled in one convenient streaming service. This is at least what an eagle-eyed fan spotted and confirmed when a preview of the new Disney streaming service was released, together with some interesting collection of LEGO Star Wars animated series.

From what we can learn from this preview screenshot, it looks like that all of the LEGO Star Wars animated series featured in the service are those that are currently licensed under Disney. Rights for streaming or releasing other titles such as the LEGO Star Wars The Yoda Chronicles are still perhaps under Cartoon Network and negotiations are still in order for Disney to have full control over this franchise. What is certain is that newer LEGO Star Wars animated series such as LEGO Star Wars All Stars, The Freemaker Adventures, The Resistance Rises, and Droid Tales are now part of Disney+’s initial line-up.

With Disney having almost full control of its Star Wars properties, we can expect a lot of interesting content that will cater to every LEGO Star Wars out there in the galaxy. Disney+ is scheduled to launch on November 12 in the US and Canada, and on November 19 in Australia and New Zealand. Viewers can opt for a monthly subscription fee of $7 USD per month, or $70 USD per year.

Thanks to Brick Fanatics for the heads-up.

Oh Boy! This Custom LEGO Mickey Mouse Pays Homage to the Most Famous Disney Character of All Time

Perhaps it’s safe to say that Mickey Mouse is Disney’s most brick-rendered character ever since, well, we learned to play with LEGO bricks. Our good ol’ pal Mickey further cemented this title when LEGO and Disney entered into a partnership that gave us our first LEGO sets featuring the iconic mouse. Initially made available as part of LEGO’s Baby Theme, a predecessor to the LEGO Duplo line back in 2000, Mickey continued to be a part of LEGO sets that catered to budding preschool builders. However, during the past 3 to 4 years, LEGO made Mickey’s presence even more felt across its sets now catering to an older generation of LEGO fans who grew up with Disney’s main star. In 2016, we saw our very first LEGO Mickey Mouse minifigure in the LEGO Disney CMF (71012), and the massive LEGO Disney Castle (71040) This year, LEGO added another tribute to the legendary Disney character with the introduction of the LEGO Ideas Steamboat Willie (21317) and the LEGO Disney CMF Series 2 (71024) both of which feature a vintage version of the star.

Furthermore, we also get to see a LEGO Mickey Mouse BrickHeadz edition which gives us our very first official brick-built version of the character. The LEGO fan community was likewise eager to showcase their own custom LEGO Mickey Mouse builds: from a Mecha Mickey Robo to a LEGO Mickey Mouse brick statue, LEGO fans can’t seem to have enough of the most famous mouse of all time.

This time around, Build Better Bricks also pays tribute to Mickey with its own brick-built version of the character while throwing in a couple of play features at the same time. B3’s LEGO Mickey Mouse is a whimsical take on the Disney star’s fun-loving and adventurous spirit. The way Mickey’s face and head turned out is really spot-on, making use of LEGO’s new rounded tiles. There are also a couple of legs and arms articulations that are featured in this original B3 creation which allows you to pose this custom LEGO Mickey Mouse in many different ways.

LEGO Mickey Mouse

It’s Mickey Mouse, the most iconic and famous cartoon character of all time. This LEGO model features lots of articulation and allows you to bring a little animation magic to the model. The face, eyes, hands, feet and buttons all make use of some of the new rounded tile pieces which are perfect for this model. Explore some of the fun techniques in the head which capture his iconic look. ~ Build Better Bricks

If you wish to try and build this original creation, then you may want to check Build Better Bricks’ website to purchase the instructions for building this MOC. Coming in at 262 pieces, this B3 original design may include parts that are not yet available in your parts inventory, so your purchase will also include a Stud.io file that allows you to seamlessly buy and transact over at Bricklink for those missing parts. This is also a good time to buy those building instructions that you want since B3 is running a buy 2 get 1 promotional. Hot dog! Happy building!

LEGO Disney Frozen 2 Sets Revealed

Disney’s sequel to its 2013 blockbuster hit is still slated to debut in cinemas in November, but it seems that LEGO is up and ready with its next wave of Disney tie-in sets. Since early February, it was already rumored that we will be seeing a handful of LEGO Disney Frozen 2 sets just before Triple Force Friday kicks in next month. And thanks to Russian online toy retailer Kockarium, we now have our first look at these six building sets – 4 regular sets and 2 that carries the 4+ subtheme. As of this posting, Kockarium seems to have taken down these images but not without them finding their way into mainstream LEGO fandom.

So before you take a look, be warned that their might be some minor spoilers ahead. These LEGO Disney Frozen 2 building sets don’t really reveal much about the plot points of the film, but it still quite interesting to speculate on how accurately these sets might portray the story in this animated sequel.
