From the Rumor Mill: LEGO 100 Years of Disney Collectible Minifigures (71038) May Include 18 Characters

Disney will mark its 100th anniversary this 2023 and LEGO is sharing in the festivities by launching several LEGO Disney tie-in sets. And this included the much-anticipated LEGO 100 Years of Disney Collectible Minifigures (71038).

While the recently released LEGO CMF Series 24 (71037) still enjoys a lot of attention, LEGO fans and completionists are now setting their eyes on the next series expected to be released in May. And rumors have it that 18 unforgettable Disney characters will grace the upcoming LEGO 100 Years of Disney Collectible Minifigures. According to the Back 2 Brick podcast as reported by Promobricks, this upcoming series will feature the following Disney characters in their minifigure versions.

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit (from classic Disney shorts)

 

Pinocchio with a fish bowl (from Pinocchio, 1940)

 

Jiminy Cricket with Umbrella (from Pinocchio, 1940)

 

Sorcerer Mickey with Bucket and Mop (from Fantasia, 1940)

 

Princess Tiana with printed 2×3 tile (from Princess and the Frog, 2009)

 

Dr. Facilier with printed 1×2 tile and walking stick (from Princess and the Frog, 2009)

 

Queen of Hearts (from Alice in Wonderland, 1951)

 

Princess Aurora with owl figure (from Sleeping Beauty, 1959)

 

Mulan with Cri-Kee (from Mulan, 1998 )

 

Ernesto de la Cruz with Guitar (from Coco, 2017)

 

Miguel Rivera with Guitar and Dante the dog (from Coco, 2017)

 

Pocahontas with 1×1 round tile with compass print (from Pocahontas, 1995)

 

Cruella de Vil with Dalmatian (from 101 Dalmatians, 1961)

 

Robin Hood with Bow (from Robin Hood, 1973)

 

Prince John with Bag (from Robin Hood, 1973)

 

Stitch with four arms and ray guns (from Lilo and Stitch, 2002)

 

Baymax with red hoverboard (from Big Hero Six, 2014)

 

Evil Queen with Magic Mirror (from Snow White, 1937)

 

This is a very impressive list if I may say since it’s not an easy feat to select which characters will get the LEGO minifigure treatment. Though I was hoping as well to see an official Snow White minifigure thrown in in this series, considering that LEGO has already released the classic Disney Princess’ Duplo and minidoll iterations.

The four-armed Stitch is number 1 on my list being a fan of Experiment 626 myself. Oswald the Lucky Rabbit is probably next considering the influence of the iconic animated character on Disney’s later characters.

So what do you think of this rumored LEGO 100 Years of Disney Collectible Minifigures? Do you think there are other characters that should have been included? Let me know in the comments below.

LEGO Collectible Minifigure Series 24 6 Pack (66733) Arriving Soon!

LEGO.com has been updated once more to now include another tantalizing deal for LEGO CMF collectors. After the confirmation of Series 24’s (71037) release date on January 1, 2023, it is great to hear that LEGO will once more offer a minifigure pack in the likes of the LEGO Collectible Minifigure Series 24 6 Pack (66733).

It’s great to see that LEGO seems to be intentional in offering these kinds of bundles moving forward. It’s a cost-effective way of ensuring that you have six characters in your collection right off the bat. I’m not sure though if the blind bags contained in each box have duplicates, or if they consist of entirely different, randomly selected minifigs. In case you grab one, do let us know in the comments below.

In the meantime, we need to wait a couple of weeks more before we can see for ourselves. The LEGO Collectible Minifigure Series 24 6 Pack (66733) is scheduled to be available online and in stores starting January 1, 2023, and is expected to retail for $29.94.

Early Look at LEGO Build-a-Minifigure 2023 Characters

The LEGOLAND Japan Twitter Account gives us an early look at 13 new LEGO Build-a-Minifigure 2023 characters scheduled (or BAM for short) to be available sometime in the first quarter of the next year. As most of you are aware, this unique selection of minifigures is quite different from what LEGO usually offers with its LEGO Collectible Minifigures or CMF. LEGO BAM characters are in-store exclusives and are offered 4 times a year in LEGO brand stores as a strategy to attract more customers.

And thanks to an early reveal by LEGOLAND Japan, we can now see what’s in store in this Q1 offering. Take a look.

I have to say that this LEGO Build-a-Minifigure 2023 series is a pretty impressive collection – with LEGO throwing in plenty of rare accessories, exclusive parts, and even recolored ones. I’m happy to see that there are plenty of costumed minifigures, some of which whose accessories are included in prior CMF series. We have a ship costume, for example, a redesigned crayon costume, a recolored brick suit guy, and even a new strawberry shortcake costume as well. The Panda Suit guy and the blue rabbit accessories also hint that these are designed with the Chinese New Year in mind, with 2023 being the Year of the Rabbit.

LEGO Build-a-Minifigure 2023

There’s no word yet on when they will be exactly available, but our best guess is next month as well, along side LEGO’s January 2023 releases. Whatever is the case, be sure to check with your local LEGO Stores for its upcoming release schedule.

Special thanks to Jay’s Brick Blog for the heads up.

Subtle Design Change in LEGO Marvel Black Panther Key Chain (854189)

MCU fans were saddened when actor Chadwick Boseman, start of “Black Panther”, died from cancer complications in 2020. It was a shock given that he kept his condition secret while starring in the film. And that doesn’t even include “Captain America: Civil War” plus “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Endgame”. The planned sequel, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, needed significant retooling in the wake of Boseman’s passing. It’s due to premiere next month, and with it are the expected merchandise tie-ins including from LEGO. One notable piece of merch is a minifigure keychain portraying the Black Panther. Close observation reveals some changes in this minifig’s design compared to previous LEGO Marvel versions.

As Brick Fanatics tells it, the upcoming LEGO Marvel Black Panther Key Chain (854189) has a seeming design alteration. All minifigs of King T’Challa of Wakanda have a masked head topped off with cat-like ears, In the previous versions the ears were swept back. One might see this in Black Panther Mech Armor (76204) and Shuri’s Lab (76212). The keychain minifigure however has the cat ears pointing forward. In fact, the ears might be mistaken for horns, particularly those worn by LEGO Daredevil. He’s one of the minifigures in the Daily Bugle (76178) last 2021.

Black Panther Key Chain (8514189)

Age 6+ | $5.99 | Coming October 1

Was this an assembly mistake or a deliberate choice? The former feels like a possibility. After all, both Black Panther Key Chain (854189) and Shuri’s Lab (76212) are coming October 1. They’re tying into the November release of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” after all. The discrepancy of the BP costume makes for a curious puzzle. It’s like the question regarding the identity of the new wearer of the suit in the film. Hopefully we’ll get some explanation for this mystery.

LEGO Con ’22 Poll for New “Minecraft” Minifig in 2023 Started

Never has a separate videogame franchise perhaps been so perfect a fit with LEGO than “Minecraft”. It started with a LEGO Ideas set, then it expanded into a full theme line. We’ve already gotten several new LEGO Minecraft sets this year, with more coming still. And the synergy goes both ways. Last year during the first LEGO Con, a poll was initiated for a new “Minecraft” character skin minifigure. From a choice between warrior, ranger, and ninja, a ninja minifig was voted, joining “Minecraft” sets this year. And this past LEGO Con 2022, another online poll for a new “Minecraft” character skin has just begun.

As told by Brickset, there will be a new “Minecraft” minifig character skin coming to the theme next year. Like before, it’ll be decided by an online poll on social media. Just after LEGO Con, the vote was started on LEGO’s official Twitter page. Where the 2021 poll for the 2022 skin offered three diverse options, this year we only have “knight” variants to choose from. Would you like a Classic Knight, Crystal Knight, or Prismarine Knight to be featured in LEGO Minecraft sets of 2023? You have until June 24 to make your choice.

11 Most Valuable LEGO Star Wars Minifigures of the Last Decade (2010-2020)

In the last 10 years, LEGO Star Wars has consistently become one of the LEGO Group’s most popular (and lucrative) themes of all time. And with LEGO’s stronger partnership with Disney, the popularity of the saga only seems to be increasing. So, it’s no surprise that there has been a growing number of the most valuable LEGO Star Wars minifigures released over the decade. And to cap off this year’s Star Wars Celebration, we’re sharing this list of 11 most valuable LSW minifigures from the years 2010-2020.

Well, you may be wondering why we’re focusing on this time period. A lot has changed within the Star Wars galaxy since Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm back in 2012, and the most noticeable of it is the continuation of the Skywalker saga in The Force Awakens released in 2015. Now truth be told, there have been a lot of varying opinions regarding The Force Awakens and the sequels and spin-offs that came after it. However, it can’t also be denied that there has been plenty of new Star Wars characters that we learned to love and have made their way to become an official LEGO set. And with the introduction of these new characters also came a sort of minifigure reboot of familiar Star Wars characters (from the original and prequel trilogies) for a new generation of LEGO Star Wars fans to enjoy.

So if you’ve started collecting your LEGO Star Wars sets during the past 10 years or so, then you may want to check this list that we scoured over at Brickset. Just bear in mind that the listed prices for these minifigures are based on Bricklink’s catalog as of this posting and that these prices are particularly for new minifigures.

Read on and see if you have them in your collection. And in case you’re looking for that hard-to-find minifig, then you’ll be glad to know that The Brickshow Shop has a comprehensive collection of LEGO Star Wars minifigures that you can browse. Be sure to check this as well. Just a bit of a note though: this article contains affiliate links. If you decide to purchase via these links, then you’re in helping us keep our blog site up and running.

Most Valuable LEGO Star Wars Minifigures of 2010 to 2020

1. 2020 – Arvel Crynyd (Rebel Pilot A-Wing)

From: LEGO Star Wars UCS A-Wing Starfighter (75275) 

Average Minifigure Price: $45.67

Arvel Crynyd is the commander of the Green Squadron that valiantly sacrificed his life to take down the Empire’s Super Star Destroyer The Executor.

 

2. 2019 – Yuletide Squadron

From: LEGO Star Wars Christmas X-wing Employee Gift (4002019)   

Average Minifigure Price: $403.38

It looks like Santa has been enlisted to fly with the Rebellion in 2019’s LEGO Employee Gift set. Because of the rarity of such sets, the value for these minifigures tends to go sky high.

 

3. 2018 – Finch Dallow (Resistance Bomber Pilot)

From: LEGO Star Wars Resistance Bomber – Finch Dallow version (75188)

Average Minifigure Price: $522.67

LEGO has a history of reissuing sets considering the fact that in rare cases, LEGO designers working on certain tie-in sets are not yet in the loop with regards to the details of their minifigure characters. This is the case for Resistance Bomber Pilot Finch Dallow from The Last Jedi. LEGO has to re-release set 75188 in order to stay true to Finch’s skin tone. What LEGO didn’t expect was the curiosity and demand that this set eventually created among the LEGO community making the set a bit harder to find.

 

4. 2017 – Jango Fett (Angry Version)

From: LEGO Star Wars Jedi Starfighter with Hyperdrive (75191)

Average Minifigure Price: $143.24

If there’s anyone to blame for the rise of the Empire’s Clone Army in Attack of the Clones, it will be fair to say that Jango Fett has the biggest share. Being the best Mandalorian bounty hunter there is, his DNA became the template for the Kaminoans to create the perfect human soldiers for the Galactic Empire. And he got his 2nd chance for minifigure fame when LEGO released another brick iteration of the Jedi Starfighter in 2017.

 

5. 2016 – Ahsoka Tano (Adult Version) with Tunic, Armor, and Belt

From: LEGO Star Wars Rebel Combat Frigate (75158)

Average Minifigure Price: $153.80

Ahsoka Tano had four minifigures versions credited to her, but to be frank, this version is the most visually appealing in my opinion. Inspired by Disney XD’s animated series Star Wars Rebels, the set that she belongs to is 1 of the 4 Rebels sets released by LEGO in 2016.

More LEGO Star Wars Minifigures Available at The Brick Show Shop! 

6. 2015 –  Boba Fett with Pauldron, Helmet, Jet Pack, Printed Arms, and Legs

From: LEGO Star Wars UCS Slave I (75060)

Average Minifigure Price: $130.92

Boba Fett is perhaps the most iconic bounty hunter in Star Wars lore, and this minifigure iteration of him from 2015 only deserves an equally imposing set. And being included in the one and only Ultimate Collector’s Series version of his trademark Slave I ship may have sparked interest for this minifigure variant among avid collectors.

 

7. 2014 – Darth Revan

From: LEGO Star Wars Darth Revan Promotional Minifigure (5002123)

Average Minifigure Price: $183.08

Darth Revan is probably one of the most beloved Star Wars video game characters of all time. We were introduced to his visual iteration when he first appeared in Electronic Arts’ role-playing video game, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic almost two decades ago. And more recently, Disney seems to be taking a keen interest in Darth Revan when he was reestablished as canon in 2019’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary. Prior to this, Disney gave the green light for LEGO to officially render him in minifigure form as a promotional polybag in 2014 and 2016.

 

8. 2013 – Yoda with NYI Heart Torso

From: 2013 New York Toy Fair.

Average Minifigure Price: $1,000

I may be wrong, but this might end up being the most expensive LEGO Yoda minifigure around. With only 1,000 minifigures released as part of 2013’s NY Toy Fair and May the 4th promotions, the rarity of this minifigure is underscored by the fact that there is no current inventory of it over at Bricklink. I guess this will surely put a smile on the Master Jedi’s face.

 

9. 2012 – Pre Vizsla

From: LEGO Star Wars Pre Vizsla’s Mandalorian Fighter (9525)

Average Minifigure Price: $149.93

Making his debut in the animated series The Clone Wars, Pre Vizsla is the battle-hardened Mandalore leader of the infamous Death Watch. And in spite of his advanced Mandalorian armor and wielding the ominous darksaber, Pre Vizsla was eventually no match against Darth Maul. To his credit, however, LEGO has dedicated a LEGO Star Wars set in honor of his role in the Star Wars animated series.

 

10. 2011- Shadow ARF Tropper

From: LEGO Star Wars Shadow ARF Trooper Promotional Minifigure Polybag (2856197)

Average Minifigure Price: $177.07

Another Imperial foot soldier from the animated tales of The Clone Wars, the Shadow ARF Trooper – or Advanced Recon Force Trooper – is a highly specialized clone trooper that excels in short-range reconnaissance missions. And in 2011, LEGO opted to immortalize him in minifigure form as part of 2011’s May the 4th promotional sales.

 

11. 2010 – Boba Fett – White

From:  LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett Promotional Minifigure Polybag (2853835)

Average Minifigure Price: $195.29

Among the 18 minifigure variants of Boba Fett, this one stands out from the group. This all-white minifig version of the most popular bounty hunter in the Star Wars galaxy comes as another Star Wars Day promotional gift in 2010, and as a token to all participating builders of the giant LEGO mural as part of the Star Wars Celebration V.

Summing It Up

This list of the most valuable LEGO Star Wars minifigures of the last decade is sure to be on the lookout list of any LEGO Star Wars fan. With so many amazing LSW sets released over the years, it’s hard to choose just 10 or 11. But, with a little effort, we’ve done just that. So let us know in the comments below which of these minifigures is your personal favorite and if you think we missed out on any LSW minifigure that should have been included in this list.

Not Two But Four LEGO Astronaut Minifigs on Artemis 1 2022 Space Mission

As 2021 nears its end, space flight fans await February 2022 and the first (unmanned) launch of the Artemis program. This unmanned mission will send an Orion spacecraft on a trip around the moon. The journey will test these all-new space delivery systems in anticipation of carrying a manned crew. But “unmanned” doesn’t mean “unoccupied.” The Orion capsule will carry humanoid test dummies to simulate flight conditions and test for radiation. Extra “passengers” include astronaut minifigures from LEGO, a partner with NASA for promoting the Artemis program. Initial reports noted two minifigs for the mission. Apparently the number’s actually double.

Brick Fanatics reports that there will be four LEGO minifigures going up with the Orion spacecraft on Artemis 1. We already know two of them: animated characters who star in LEGO Education’s “Build to Launch” STEAM exploration series. Their names, if you recall, are Kate and Kyle. Now apparently, they will be joined by two astronaut minifigs from the main LEGO City theme. The names of the new additions: Julia and Sebastian. The quartet gets to follow in the space-flight footsteps of three aluminum-built minifigures aboard the Juno space probe. They reached their destination, the planet Jupiter, back in 2016.

LEGO looks to be harnessing their NASA partnership to synergize their upcoming space-flight LEGO City sets. We already covered the rumored Rocket Launch Pad (60351?) supposed to launch (product-wise) on March 2022. We have to wonder if Artemis 1 “astronauts” Sebastian and Julia are part of that set’s minifigure crew.
