The recent introduction of the LEGO Plants from Plants (40320), a collection of botanical-themed building elements advertised as being the first set wholly manufactured using plant-based plastics, is the first big step by the company towards the use of sustainable materials for its products; the promotional push speaks for itself. In fact, there’s going to be a LEGO event for UK fans happening on the first weekend of next month, and it will be in association with a celebrated institution, the London Natural History Museum. Themed after one of LEGO’s ongoing promotions for the Plants from Plants (40320) set, participating children at the Natural History Museum will come up with their own sustainable superhero figure made of building elements from LEGO’s Plants from Plants (40320). They’ll do this by checking out museum exhibits to learn about nature and environment together with LEGO’s first botanical superhero, Plantus Maximus.
We’re roughly a week away before the curtains are pulled from this month’s next LEGO big reveal. Shrouded in mystery and enigma in the tradition of the world’s most iconic secret agent, LEGO is understandably reticent in giving out details regarding this next LEGO Creator Expert set – save for a silhouette of its corresponding box art and a teaser of its wheels. Now it looks like the secret is already out and spreading like wild fire across various social media platforms, and has been caught eventually by German motorhead AutoBILD. Though their line of interest is practically (and obviously) about cars and vehicles, it didn’t took long before the site caught attention of what seems to be a LEGO VIP invitation that glaringly displays an image of the LEGO Creator Expert Aston Martin DB5 (10262).
Just a quick reminder. If you’re eyeing on that sleek LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron (42083), cool LEGO City Arctic Mobile Exploration Base (60195), or the latest chibi cuteness of the LEGO BrickHeadz Harry Potter & Hedwig (41615) and Ariel & Ursula (41623) perhaps now is the best time to purchase them at your nearest LEGO store, or more conveniently via shop.LEGO.com. As mentioned in the LEGO Store July 2018 Calendar, from July 9-15, every single receipt purchase worth $35 or more entitles you to a FREE LEGO Party Banana Juice Bar (5005250) minifigure.
After 2 years of gathering fan support and approval, we now have our next candidate to qualify for this year’s LEGO Ideas Review Stage. We followed Steamboat Willie’s development since 2016 and it caught our eye because of the Disney legacy that it alludes to. This LEGO Ideas project by szabomate90 pays tribute to early attempts of Walt Disney to bring cartoon animation to the masses, and now the LEGO Ideas Project Steamboat Willie has garnered the necessary 10K fan support in order to qualify for the 2018 LEGO Ideas Review Stage.
