More 2019 LEGO Movie 2 Sets Slated This Summer

In continuation of everything LEGO that is happening at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, the LEGO Group has just revealed another slew of sets to watch out that recreate those fun and memorable scenes in the LEGO Movie 2. Reporting from the LEGO show room in Nuremberg, Germany, Zusammengebaut reports that there will be 6 additional LEGO Movie 2 sets to be released in August, including the recently revealed LEGO Movie 2 The Rexcelsior! (70839). Some of these are still yet to be named, perhaps due to potential spoilers since the LEGO Movie 2 is still slated for a general public release next week, February 8. There are two sets that were named, though, and were not that spoilery about the film’s details and plot. Check out these 2019 LEGO Movie 2 sets slated this summer.

  • Shimmer & Shine Sparkle Spa! (70837)
  • Queen Watevra’s ‘So-Not-Evil’ Space (70838)
  • The Rexcelsior! (70839)
  • The LEGO Movie 2 (70847)
  • The LEGO Movie 2 (70848)
  • The LEGO Movie 2 (708490
The LEGO Movie 2 The Rexcelsior! (70839).

I’m not sure about the release dates of these sets except for the Rexcelsior! (70839), which will be on May 1. Given these additional summer 2019 sets, there are now a total of 25 sets, and 6 polybags under the LEGO Movie 2 theme, plus a LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigure Series (71023).

LEGO Ninjago 2019 Summer Sets Named at the Nuremberg Toy Fair

Contrary to speculations and rumors going around, it seems that LEGO is not yet ready to pull the plug on one of its long-running, non-licensed theme. LEGO unveiled its next collection of LEGO Ninjago sets due for a summer 2019 release, and it’s important to note that these are all original sets, and not re-released sets. This is what LEGO has unveiled at the ongoing Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany, as reported by LEGO fan site Zusammengebaut. The most recent series of LEGO Ninjago Legacy sets were a collection of re-released sets based on the early seasons of Ninjago. This time, it looks like there will be more sets that are either dedicated to the series latest season entitled March of the Oni, or we can expect more from the TV series after this latest story arc. Whatever is the case, and fans will be happy yo agree, that we will not yet see the end of LEGO Ninjago. Here are the names of the next wave of LEGO Ninjago 2019 summer sets slated to be released sometime in August.

  • Attack of the Ice Samurai (70671)
  • Koel’s Offroad Bike (70672)
  • Fire Snake (70674)
  • Lloyd’s Titan Mech (70676)
  • Desert Glider (70677)
  • The Ice Age Fortress (70678)
The LEGO Ninjago Dragon Pit (70655) released in 2018.

Based on their declared retail price in Euros, it seems that the Desert Glider (70677) could be the largest among these sets. Retailing for 129.99 Euros, this sizeable set could be within the same range as that of the LEGO Ninjago Dragon Pit (70655) from last year, in terms of piece count and set dimensions. We just have to wait and see until LEGO makes a full, official reveal.

LEGO Friends 2019 Summer Sets To Watch Out For

There’s still plenty to expect from LEGO as they reveal their next wave of LEGO sets slated to be released this summer. From new commemorative LEGO Star Wars sets, LEGO City Space and tech savvy LEGO Technic sets, we now have our listing of some of the latest LEGO Friends 2019 summer sets to watch out for, courtesy of Zusammengebaut.

Same as before, photography is not allowed inside the LEGO show room of the Nuremberg Toy Fair. So we hope to see these sets and other LEGO reveals up close and personal when this year’s New York Toy Fair kicks in from February 16 to 19. Take note that this listing may not represent the actual set names since they were roughly translated from German via Google Translate.

  • Heartlake City Supermarket (41362) (4+) – 29.99€\
  • Mia’s Horse Transporter (41371) – 29.99€
  • Stephanie’s Gymnastics Show (41372) – 39.99€
  • Karaoke Pool Party (41374) – 49.99€
  • Amusement Park (41375) – 129.99€
  • Turtle Rescue (41376) – 19.99€
  • Submarine for Dolphin Rescue (41378) – 39.99€
  • Heartlake City Restaurant (41379) – 59.99€
  • Lighthouse (41380) – 59.99€
  • Rescue Boat (41381) – 89.99€
The LEGO Friends Heartlake Grand Hotel (41101) from 2015.

The Amusement Park (41375) sounds interesting since its price point hints at a piece count of more than a thousand pieces. It is similarly priced as that of the Heartlake Grand Hotel (41101) from 2015 which also retailed for $129.99, and is currently the largest LEGO Friends set with a 1,552 piece count.

2016’s LEGO Friends Amusement Park Roller Coaster (41130).

You might also remember that LEGO also offered a somewhat similar set in 2016 with the Amusement Park Roller Coaster (41130) which made use of a new track piece. As the title suggests, then we might see the Amusement Park (41375) set as something that complements the Amusement Park Roller Coaster. I guess we have to wait until NYTF if ever LEGO will unveil this next big LEGO Friends set.

More Toy Fair News: New LEGO Star Wars Summer 2019 Sets Announced

Note: The image above is from 2009’s LEGO Star Wars The Battle of Endor (8038) set. Following the reveal of the summer 2019 LEGO City and LEGO Technic sets, LEGO has also announced the release of additional LEGO Star Wars Summer 2019 sets, following the announcement of its 20th year LEGO Star Wars commemorative sets. There will be two new series to watch out for, including a subtheme dedicated to the new animated series, Star Wars Resistance. We’re still following the events as covered by LEGO fan correspondent Zusammengebaut at the on-going Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany. Here’s what was revealed so far.

LEGO Star Wars Resistance

  • Major Vanreg’s TIE fighter (75240)
  • Black Ace TIE-Interceptor (75242)
  • Duel on Starkiller Base (75236)

LEGO Star Wars Action Battle

  • Endor Assault (75238)
  • Hoth Generator (75239)
  • Echo Base (75241)

2019 LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar (75245)

Star Wars D2C set (75252)

Rumors of a LEGO Star Wars Resistance subtheme were making their rounds recently across LEGO fan forums, and it is now confirmed that this such the case. It is also interesting to note that after 6 years since the last time we saw them in the D2C set LEGO Star Wars Ewok Village (10236) and 2015’s LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar (75097), we get to see the Ewoks once again in the Endor Assault (75238).  I’m not really sure what’s the deal with the Action Battle series, but judging on the way the sets are presented around this subtheme, it looks like it’s a collection of sets that you can bring together and connect. This first offering of LEGO Star Wars Action Battle sets kind of remind me of the not so well received Assault on Hoth (75098) set from 2016. I do hope LEGO is not tempting fans to recreate this failed D2C set once again in piecemeal format.

Lastly, this wave of new LEGO Star Wars summer 2019 sets will also include a tightly guarded D2C set simply referred to as set 75252. We have no hint whatsoever on what this set could be, but I do wish this is not another rehashed set of sorts. We’ll know soon enough.

New LEGO Technic Summer 2019 Sets Revealed

Following the reveal of the LEGO City 2019 summer sets at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, German LEGO fan correspondent Zusammengebaut continues his coverage of the events as they unfold at the LEGO showroom at the prestigious European toy fair. We’ve heard the first line-up of summer 2019 LEGO City sets, and this time, we now know that we will be getting four additional LEGO Technic summer 2019 sets slated to be available in August 1.

  • Spider Crane (42097)
  • Car Transporter (42098)
  • Off-Road Vehicle (42099)
  • Liebherr 9800 (42100)

The Car Transporter (42098) is interesting since Zusammengebaut describes it as  2 builds in 1, with one build as the same size as that of the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (42093),  and another for the Car Transporter itself. This set is second to the largest of the four sets coming in at 2,493 pieces.

The Spider Crane (42097) is another 2-in-1 set that comes in 920 pieces, while the Off-Road Vehicle (42099) comes with the new CONTROL+ system, three Power Functions motors, and independent suspensions.

The last set in the list could be the most complex among the four LEGO Technic Summer 2019 sets. The Liebherr 9800 (42100) comes at 4,108 pieces and includes seven Power Function motors that are individually controllable allowing for a wider range of movement. It also has two smart hubs and features the new digital CONTROL+ system.

It definitely looks like LEGO is levelling up its next generation of Technic sets following these new innovations. I’m not so much into LEGO Technic, but this are surely exciting sets to watch out for in August.

Stay tuned for more updates! Special thanks once again to Zusammengebaut for keeping us in the loop and sharing these images.

LEGO City Summer 2019 Sets Announced at the Nuremberg Toy Fair

Note: the image above is from 2015’s LEGO City Spaceport (60080). Europe’s largest toy fair has already begun, and LEGO is sure not to miss out on this one. Coming from the London Toy Fair, LEGO now flaunts its new collection of LEGO sets at the Nuremberg Toy Fair 2019 in Nuremberg, Germany . And thanks to fellow LEGO fan correspondent Zusammengebaut, we now have specific information on what’s in store with LEGO this summer. The LEGO showroom is stirring up a buzz with its revelation of new LEGO sets, including a noteworthy collection of new summer 2019 LEGO City sets.

We’ve seen the LEGO City theme explore the many facets of the real world: from the depths of the ocean, perilous jungles, underground world and to the polar ice caps. This time, LEGO is bringing back once more its LEGO City Space subtheme, but this time with a distinct inspiration coming from NASA. Specifically inspired by the world’s largest space exploration institute, 2019’s LEGO City Space will offer six new summer sets namely:

  • Maintenance Mission Shuttle (60224)
  • Rover Test Drive (60225)
  • Mars Research Shuttle (60226)
  • Moon Base (60227)
  • Space Research Rocket Control Centre (60228)

These sets celebrate the 50th founding anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, and as a reference to a Mars Mission subtheme. They are not necessary licensed by the space exploration agency, but are stated specifically as “inspired by NASA”, as printed on the sets’ respective box arts.

The last set to be mentioned – 60228 – is said to integrate with the LEGO Life App on a smart phone which makes the set remotely controlled.

In addition to this NASA inspired 2019 LEGO City sets, LEGO will be launching a new LEGO City TV series based on the theme comprising of 20 episodes running 11 minutes each. There will be three 2019 LEGO City sets to be released in connection to the TV series, one of which carries the 4+ branding:

  • LEGO City Fire Service ruck (60231)
  • LEGO City 4+ Petrol Station (60232)
  • LEGO City Doughnut Shop Opening (60233)

The Doughnut Shop Opening (60233) opening features a small toy shop, a TV crew, police minifigures, and a crane truck.

There will be another LEGO City People Pack, similar to previous ones such as last year’s Outdoor Adventures (60202) and 2017’s Fun at the Beach (60153). For 2019, we will have the LEGO City People Pack – City Dwellers (60234) which follows a fairground theme. It’s a good addition to other fair-themed sets such as the Roller Coaster (10261), Carousel (10257) and Ferris Wheel (10247). Lastly, LEGO has also revealed this year’s new LEGO City Advent Calendar (60235), which is something to watch out for considering that this set has been a constant favorite among LEGO City fans.

Stay tuned for more updates and reveals in the LEGO show room at the Nuremberg Toy Fair 2019!

Poseidonia by dbodky

 

Go exploring on the island of Poseidonia after anchoring your yacht next to the small boathouse with a light blue roof.

The main attraction here is the ancient statue of a deity who still guards the island to this day. Finally, hop back on your yacht and discover the cave that goes right through the island of Poseidonia.

 

 

Lowenstein Castle by Raziel_Regulus

Every castle is home to someone, and in this Löwenstein Castle lives a knight, his family, and his animals. The animals have their own housing that can be found right behind the outermost of the two main gatehouses – the outer bailey. The inner bailey has a roofed defensive corridor to offer protection from outside threats with an overhanging toilette bay, or “thunderbox.” Cross the drawbridge to get to the Great Hall and join the family for festivities after keeping watch over the castle. End the day with hiking up the centrepiece and highest point of the complex, the donjon or keep, to absorb panoramic views of the entire Löwenstein Castle.

 

 

Bikes! by mdt.maikel

 

Make your way to a bike stand where both tourists and locals alike can ride a bike to explore the city and then set it aside just about anywhere after they are done exploring. A truck driver will pick up the bikes using GPS antennas that communicate the bikes’ location to the truck’s tracking system. Furthermore, it includes a carrier tricycle, which minifigures can use to transport groceries or, of course, their children. With LEGO cities being focused mainly on motorized vehicles, add another method of transportation with Bikes!

The LEGO Story by BrickJonas

Since it’s the 60th anniversary of LEGO Brick, what’s a better way to celebrate than taking a look back at how it all started? Build an individual vignette for 4 different eras of LEGO’s history starting from 1937. Ole Kirk Kristiansen bought his first milling machine, and the company only made wooden toys (have you spotted the wooden duck?). In the second vignette, LEGO started molding plastic bricks in 1946. The third vignette is of a designer’s office to represent designers working on the amazing LEGO sets that we all are familiar with. Finally, in the fourth vignette, you can see a modern molding machine with a complicated tubing system in the background. That’s where the raw materials “travel” to the big molding machines that make LEGO bricks. Display all the vignettes together, or put them in different places, to share the story of LEGO!

 

 

Isle of Peril by JakeSadovich

 

What exactly are the various dangers on the Isle of Peril? Just in case you, or any member of your crew, are too curious to stay on the marked path, we’ll tell you just a few things of what you’ll face! Just above the steep beach, in the rocky entrance into the canyon is “The Cave of No Return.” The backside opens into a small ledge overhanging “The Lake of Doom,” where one can a plunge into the lake if one isn’t careful. Look out for “Laudably Large Land Lobsters” and the “four-tentacled six-snake-headed one-eyed colossal-clam-beast.” After passing through the waterfall, travel downward toward the lowlands to a dangerously dilapidated wooden bridge over inordinately large spikes. Follow the path marked in red on this 3D treasure map, and if you’re lucky, you may find the buried treasure.

Here Are Some of the New LEGO Products Revealed at the 2019 London Toy Fair

Brick Fanatics is at the floor of the Olympia London for the 2019 London Toy Fair, where the LEGO Group has returned for a round of new LEGO products revealed, celebrating the release of its brick sequel the LEGO Movie 2. Aside from bagging the Licensed Product of the Year award, UK’s 66th Toy Fair was also an opportunity for LEGO to showcase some of its products.

The LEGO Group attended the event, occupying a private showroom where it introduced some of its TLM2 product tie-ins that will be out this year. Though there was no new set reveals other than the cool LEGO Movie 2 The Rexcelsior! (70839) which was only mentioned and was not on display, there are plenty of LEGO Movie 2 lights, stationeries, and stickers to name a few.

Some of these new LEGO product include new TLM2 key lights and torches. There is also a line of bags, reusable stickers and other school necessities that kids will surely enjoy.

LEGO Light Products

 

LEGO Statickers

 

LEGO School Items

 

Again, there was no other new LEGO product reveals that TLG opted to show at the 2019 London Toy Fair except for the Rexcelsior. We hope to see more new LEGO products showcased later on when the 2019 New York Toy Fair kicks in next month.

Thanks once again to Brick Fanatics for sharing the above photos.

LEGO Harry Potter Named as Licensed Product of the Year at the 2019 London Toy Fair

This year is an exciting one for LEGO, particularly with regards to their accomplishments in the toy industry. Not only do we see the LEGO Group come back for the London Toy Fair, but its LEGO Harry Potter line of sets were named as the Licensed Product of the Year granted by UK Toy Industry Awards.

The return of the LEGO Harry Potter sets last year were warmly welcomed by Potter and LEGO fans alike, especially with the debut of the massive LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043), the nostalgic LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Express (75955) and the LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures (71022). Recognition was also given to the LEGO Group for its LEGO Movie 2 LEGO Movie Maker (70820) as one of the 25 “Hero Toys” for 2019. LEGO is rumored to release additional LEGO Harry Potter sets this year, with sources pointing to a July 1 release date.

LEGO is also expected to make waves at next month’s New York Toy Fair, with a total of nine nominations for the 2019 Toy of the Year Awards by the Toy Association Inc. The flagship Hogwarts Castle (71043) was also nominated for Specialty Toy of the Year, the LEGO Harry Potter CMF (71022) for the Collectible of the Year, and the Hogwarts Great Hall (75954) for Construction Toy of the Year.

Congratulations to LEGO for bagging the Licensed Product of the Year award, and cheers for more awesome sets in the future!

Thanks to Brick Fanatics for the heads up.

LEGO Returns this Year at the London Toy Fair 2019

Last year, the LEGO Group opted to skip the highly celebrated annual London Toy Fair and other toy exhibits which it traditionally attended to. Though there were no official reasons that the company mentioned, it was speculated that the reason for such is the slight decline in sales that LEGO experienced in general, and the significant change in leadership that it needed to go through. However, for this year, LEGO returns to the floor of the London Toy Fair 2019 or to be exact, at one of the venue’s showroom to flaunt its latest sets. According to the event’s floor plan, LEGO will not be setting up a booth at the floor area like it usually does but will be presenting in the Olympia Room, near the Visitors Entrance at the West Ground side of the venue. The choice of having an enclosed room as an exhibit area could mean that LEGO is gearing up to exhibit a significant number of sets, mostly coming from the LEGO Movie 2 tie-ins.

The LEGO Movie 2 Benny’s Space Squad (70841) has proven to be one of LEGO’s most popular set to date.

There is no information yet as of this posting if new and still, yet-to-be-revealed sets will be featured by LEGO inside the Olympia Room, and if ever media outlets will be allowed to take images. Traditionally, there are sets that can be photographed during these events, while others are off limits from camera lens.

Whatever is the case, it’s a great comeback for LEGO after a year of hiatus from these events. And I hope that the London Toy Fair 2019 is just the start of a series of toy exhibits that LEGO will actively participate in this year. We still have the Nuremburg Toy Fair in Germany to be held from January 30 to February 3, and the New York Toy Fair from February 16 to 19.
