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.

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.

Another Disney Product Idea Worth Supporting: benlouisa’s “Winnie the Pooh”

Recently, the Disney brand has been very prominent in LEGO Ideas. After all, the Steamboat Willie set (21317) seemed to hog the spotlight with its glorious monochrome scheme. The accompanying Mickey and Minnie Mouse minifigures were awesome too. Variants of them got included in the latest Disney Collectible Minifigs (71024).

But we digress. Somehow I think the success of Steamboat Willie from its time in LEGO Ideas might help other Disney-themed submissions. Take for instance this product idea from member benlouisa. It’s a sweet set depiction of another popular Disney property. Say hello to the Willy Nilly Silly Old Bear.

That’s right; this Ideas submission is for Winnie the Pooh. Whether you recall more the “Americanized” eighties animated series or the theatrically-released films that followed Pooh’s British roots, benlouisa’s build will fire up Disney nostalgia. What we have are Winnie and friends with the former’s familiar Hundred Acre Wood tree-house.

Appropriate tree elements comprise the tree façade of Pooh’s home “under the name of Sanders,” with two beehives and a hollow for Owl. The house part to the rear has a removable roof to reveal the amenities for play. Included are minifigures of Pooh, Piglet and Rabbit, plus buildable figures of Eeyore, Tigger and Owl.

With 3,821 supporters already pledged, plus 570 days left to make 10-K, we’d say benlouisa’s Winnie the Pooh Ideas set is off to a good start. If you think Steamboat Willie needs another Disney LEGO Ideas companion, look no further. LEGO Disney fans, come represent.

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.

LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures All Ready To Go At Disney XD

 

With the success of ‘The Yoda Chronicles’ and ‘Droid Tales’, LEGO and Lucasfilm entered into a new partnership with their next wave of miniseries that is sure to be fun-filled and hilarious than its predecessors. “The fun-filled adventure comedy series, set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, will introduce all-new heroes and villains in exciting adventures with many familiar Star Wars characters,” according to the series official website. The new LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is slated to be released this summer exclusively at Disney XD. Check this official announcement from Starwars.com.

The Freemaker Adventures

“The Force is set to meet LEGO bricks in a new galaxy-spanning adventure.

StarWars.com is thrilled to announce LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, an all-new animated television series scheduled to debut this summer on Disney XD in the US. The fun-filled adventure comedy series, set between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, will introduce all-new heroes and villains in exciting adventures with many familiar Star Wars characters.

Told in the whimsically-charged style that audiences have come to expect from LEGO Star Wars entertainment, the series stars the Freemakers, a family of scavengers who build and sell starships from the scoured debris of space battles strewn throughout the galaxy. When their youngest discovers a natural connection with the Force through an ancient artifact — the Kyber Saber — his world is turned upside down, and he and his family are thrown into an epic struggle against the Empire to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy. Throughout their adventures, the Freemakers explore new worlds, meet new and familiar characters, and learn the true value of what it means to be a family.

“We are very excited to launch for the first time a TV series with Disney XD,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president, licensing & entertainment at the LEGO Group. “The creative team behind The Freemaker Adventures is extremely talented, and the series is a great testament to our longstanding and successful partnership with Lucasfilm and Disney. The show masterfully combines the rich heritage of storytelling, great characters, action, and adventure in a galaxy far, far away with the creativity, imagination, and humor that only LEGO Star Wars can deliver. We are sure fans young and old are going to love the show.”

“With The Freemaker Adventures we are thrilled to bring all-new stories to life that could only be realized in the LEGO Star Wars universe,” said Carrie Beck, vice president, animation development at Lucasfilm. “We are embarking on an unprecedented collaboration that will allow us to extend the narrative experience of the Star Wars saga with the same playful spirit that’s always made LEGO Star Wars so much fun to watch. We are so thankful to have such great partners in the LEGO Group, Disney XD, and series developers Bill Motz and Bob Roth.”

LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures is a production of Wil Film, the LEGO Group, and Lucasfilm. Developed for television by Bill Motz and Bob Roth (Penguins of Madagascar), they join Torsten Jacobson (LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales) and Jill Wilfert (The LEGO Movie) as executive producers alongside producers Carrie Beck (Star Wars Rebels), Jason Cosler (LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Avengers Reassembled!), Jake Blais, and John McCormack.
