Here’s A Closer Look at the LEGO Minifigures Marvel Studios Series (71031)

Now that LEGO has made it official, LEGO Marvel fans can now have a closer look at the latest LEGO Minifigures Marvel Studios Series (71031) before they arrive in stores and online in September. Here are some close-up images of these 12 MCU characters in their LEGO minifigure forms. From what we can also read from the series’ official product description, it seems that LEGO has also revealed some of these characters’ official names especially those that will be featured in the upcoming Disney+ What If…? series. I’ll be referring to these official names in the list below.

I’ll try to keep my personal opinions at a minimum since I don’t want to make this sound like a lengthy review. But just to point out, and similar to what LEGO offered in the  LEGO DC Comics CMF (71026), each LEGO Marvel minifigure will also include the angled bar element for a more dynamic minifigure pose.

Frankly, I want to hear more about your personal thoughts on this new CMF series so feel free to drop in your comments below. You can also join in the discussion via our official Facebook page where I will share this article as well. Lastly, don’t forget to add this CMF to your wishlist over at LEGO Shop@Home if you wish to be reminded of its availability starting September 1, retailing for $5 per blind bag. So with that out of the way, let’s take a closer look at the LEGO Minifigures Marvel Studios Series.

LEGO Minifigures Marvel Studios Series (71031) Officially Revealed

After many teaser updates and rumors, LEGO has officially revealed its LEGO Minifigures Marvel Studios Series (71031). Scheduled to arrive in September, each collectible minifigure blind bag is expected to retail for $4.99.

Based on new MCU characters that were featured in recent and upcoming Disney+ series (WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, What If…?), this CMF series includes 12 Marvel superhero minifigs namely The Scarlet Witch, White Vision, Monica Rambeau, The Winter Soldier, Captain America, Loki, Sylvie, T’Challa Star-Lord, Captain Carter, Gamora with the Blade of Thanos, Zombie Hunter Spidey, and Zombie Captain America.

Obviously, LEGO is investing much of its tie-in sets in promoting these Disney+ series, and this time around, we have this particular CMF series to look forward to as well. Though I have to say that I do prefer the direction that LEGO took when it introduced its LEGO DC Comics CMF (71026) last year which is primarily based on their comic book counterparts. There is a lot of potential candidates coming from the source material in my opinion, and I am somewhat hoping that LEGO will still consider offering another set of LEGO Marvel CMF based on their comic book origins.

Whatever is the case, you may want to click on the LEGO Shop@Home affiliate link below if you wish to add the LEGO Minifigures Marvel Studios Series (71031) to your LEGO wishlist.

More Hints on the LEGO Marvel Collectible Minifigures Series (71031)

The full-length official trailer of the next MCU Disney+ series has already been released, and with it comes more hints on what we can expect from the upcoming LEGO Marvel Collectible Minifigures Series (71031). In case you missed it, you may watch it right here.

If you recall from last month, I published a list of these rumored MCU characters that are said to be included in the next LEGO CMF series. First off, it is clear by now that unlike last year’s DC Comics-inspired LEGO CMF (71026), the LEGO Marvel Collectible Minifigures Series (71031) source material will be entirely from the new MCU Disney+ offerings – from WandaVision up to the animated What If…? series. And now that we have seen the official trailer of the upcoming multiverse series, coupled with the exciting reveals of Loki’s episode 5, we can better fine-tune our list.

With more information coming from Brick Fanatics, here’s the latest rundown of what we can expect from our next licensed LEGO CMF.

      • Scarlet Witch
      • White Vision
      • Monica Rambeau (it was initially thought that it was Agatha Harkness, but the latest word from brick street shows that it will be the super-powered SWORD operative)
      • Captain America Sam Wilson (with shield and new wings)
      • Bucky Barnes (with new printed arm and knife)
      • Loki (in a trench coat with the word VARIANT printed at the back, and Throg as an accessory as seen in Loki Episode 5)
      • Sylvie (now that the Loki series has revealed Sylvie as the one trying to burn the TVA to the ground instead of Lady Loki, we can expect her to be in the LEGO CMF as well)
      • Captain Britain Peggy Carter (with shield and Tessaract)
      • Zombie Captain America
      • Star-Lord T’Challa (with a pair of blasters)
      • Spider Supreme (it was initially thought that this will be a Steve Rogers version of Spidey, but the latest official trailer of What If…? has shown this character to be a multiverse counterpart of Peter Parker with a penchant for a Doctor Strange-like capes)
      • Warlord Gamora (inspired by Thanos and wields a double blade similar to what the Mad Titan used

Though sources tell us that we can expect only 12 minifigures from this line-up, I’m still hoping they will throw in more minifigures coming from this Marvel and Disney+ collab. I guess we just have to wait for LEGO’s official word which I believe will be anytime soon.

LEGO Minions Kung Fu Training Minifigure Pack (40511) Revealed

In case you missed it, Brickset has shared several images of what could be our next minifigure pack coming from a licensed theme. The LEGO Minions Kung Fu Training Minifigure Pack (40511) is a great way to kick off the LEGO Minions The Rise of Gru theme and features most of the main characters of its tie-in film.

This latest minifigure pack joins the likes of other film-inspired minifigure offerings like the LEGO Harry Potter Wizarding World Minifigure Pack (40500), and the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man, and the Museum Break-In Minifigure Pack (40343) from 2019. These packs usually feature 3 to 4 minifigures and a great way to collect some of the licensed characters that are usually included in larger sets.

The LEGO Minions Kung Fu Training Minifigure Pack includes Gru, Bellow Bottom, Bob, and Kevin together with an assortment of LEGO pieces to recreate a martial arts training dummy and some weapons worthy of a despicable underling. It’s a great way to have Gru as an official minifigure, which is also included in the larger Unstoppable Bike Chase (75549) set. LEGO is also throwing in an exclusive minifigure in the form of the stylish villain, Bellow Bottom. This is a great incentive to get this Minifigure Pack since this is the only set where she is included. And of course, if you wish to build your own troop of minions – and if you’re planning to complete all the sets under the theme – then getting this minifigure pack gives you a total of 15 cute yellow villains to command.

Though the rest of the LEGO Minions The Rise of Gru sets are now available for purchase, the LEGO Minions Kung Fu Training Minifigure Pack (40511) is expected to arrive on July 1st, and will most likely retail for $15. I will update this post once they make their appearance over at LEGO Shop@Home.

Here’s A Closer Look at the Latest LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates Series 2 (43108) Minifigures

The latest batch of LEGO Vidiyo sets has been revealed, making it perhaps one of the most prolific themes that ever came up with new, and funky minifigure characters. This next series of LEGO Vidiyo sets not only added a handful of regular sets but also further expanded its line of colorful LEGO Vidiyo minifigure characters that are worthy of special mention. And on top of that, LEGO is also expanding its minifigure collectibles with the introduction of the LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates Series 2 (43108) minifigures.

LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates Series 2

As I’ve mentioned earlier in February, I do appreciate the creative process that the LEGO designers undertook to come with these original minifigures. It’s a weird and funny selection of comical characters ranging from beat-mixing aliens, DJ robots, jammin’ monsters, and anthropomorphic singers – all given that hilarious LEGO treatment.

The LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates Series 2 (43108), like its predecessor, introduces twelve new Vidiyo characters added to the ensemble. They still come in the usual mystery box packaging, together with new uniquely printed 2×2 BeatBit tiles. And though Series 2 is not yet listed over at LEGO Shop@Home, we can be pretty sure that it will be up anytime soon considering that this 2nd wave LEGO Vidiyo sets is scheduled to be available in August. Let’s take a closer look.

ICYMI: LEGO Marvel Superheroes Spider-Man Versus Venom and Iron Venom (40454) Revealed

No, this is not an advanced April Fools joke kind of a thing. Because in case you missed it, LEGO Shop@Home has been updated to include a rather quirky minifigure pack inspired by Marvel’s aniverse of Earth-8311. The LEGO Marvel Superheroes Spider-Man Versus Venom and Iron Venom (40454) minifigure pack is slated to arrive in April and comes with a rather interesting set of minifigs.

For the first time ever, it looks Spider-Ham from LEGO Venomosaurus Ambush (76151) has finally met his match in the likes of this minifig version of Pork Grind. Aside from this symbiote-powered hog, this pack also features a Venomized Iron Man with prints that are similar to its counterpart from last year’s Venom Crawler (76163). This set also includes a pair of Spider-Man and Venom minifigures plus a buildable black and white 4-wheel buggy. It comes in at 63 pieces and is expected to retail for $15 once it is available on April 1st.

LEGO Marvel Superheroes Spider-Man Versus Venom and Iron Venom (40454)

Marvel movie fans will love this action-packed playset with popular superhero characters and a supercool vehicle. The 4 LEGO® Marvel minifigures include the amazing Spider-Man, plus 3 awesome villains – Venom, Pork Grind and Iron Venom. The bad guys race around causing chaos in the Venom buggy. Spider-Man and Iron Venom are armed with power blasts – and Pork Grind has 2 hotdogs!

  • Includes 4 minifigures – Spider-Man, Venom, Pork Grind and Iron Venom – and a buildable, 4-wheel buggy.
  • Accessories include Spider-Man’s and Iron Venom’s power blasts and Pork Grind’s 2 hotdogs.
  • Fun construction toy for young superheroes aged 6 and up.

 

LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates (43101) Box Distribution Revealed

By now, you might be aware already that the recently revealed LEGO Vidiyo theme is also getting a pretty neat line-up of minifigures called LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates (43101). Now listed over at LEGO Shop@Home, this new series of minifigures consists of 12 characters that come with a variety of seemingly random 2×2 tile pieces called BeatBits. But what could pose as a challenge for LEGO minifigure collectors is the fact that the LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates does not come packaged in the typical blind bag fashion that we are all used to, but instead comes in its first-ever boxed packaging. Feeling your way through this series is certainly not an option anymore.

However, thanks to our friend Lukas from Stone Wars, we can now have an idea of what we can expect from the LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates’  box distribution, and hopefully zero-in on the characters that we wish to get.

First off according to Lukas, the unopened larger box packaging contains exactly 24 boxes of the LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates minifigures. And we can be assured that we can get two complete series out of this.

As I’ve mentioned earlier, having these cardboard boxes for this series’ packaging virtually eliminates our chances of feeling our way in these minifigs like we’ve always done. Though I may not be exactly happy with LEGO’s choice of packaging here, I understand the company’s decision to forego the usual plastic polybags consistent with its goals of promoting sustainability.

Now the only question is, is there a way to find out which LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates minifigure are we going to get based on its distribution in an unopened box? And based on what we are seeing from Stone Wars, then it might be such the case. According to this image shared by Lukas, then we might have a pretty good grasp of what to expect.

If we can expect LEGO to be consistent with their packaging similar to their previous CMF series, then we can be sure that other than having two complete series in each box, we can also expect to get exactly two copies of the same minifigure placed side by side. Of course, this is assuming that what we have is an unopened box, to begin with. So if you’re looking at it from the top, we can expect to have:

  •  Werewolf Drummer
  • Red Panda Dancer
  • Discowboy
  • DJ Cheetah
  • Samurapper
  • Shark Singer
  • Banshee Singer
  • Cotton Candy Cheerleader
  • Genie Dancer
  • Alien Keytarist
  • Bunny Dancer
  • Ice Cream Saxophonist

We’re not sure at this time if LEGO intends to continue this form of cardboard packaging for its minifigures. I guess that it might only be for this particular series of LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates, but we just have to wait and see in the next few months.

Special thanks once again to Lukas of Stone Wars.

A Look at All the LEGO Vidiyo Minifigures We Know So Far

The LEGO Vidiyo sets are now officially revealed. And while they are currently listed over at LEGO Shop@Home, I couldn’t help but admire what LEGO did with its line-up of LEGO Vidiyo minifigures. Aside from the six LEGO Vidiyo BeatBoxes that were announced as part of its first wave of offering, LEGO has also introduced the LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates Series 1 (43101) and its roster of colorful, beat-vibing characters.

As I’ve mentioned before, I do appreciate what the LEGO designers came up with these minifigure series. Strictly speaking, they’re not part of an official LEGO Collectible Minifigures series (CMF) but I’m sure LEGO fans (me included) have a special spot for these guys on our display shelves. I guess it’s safe to say that if ever there is a ‘musical’ LEGO CMF series, then this one will easily pass for it.

So what do we know so far about this roster of new minifigure characters and what can we expect them? Thankfully, Brickset has updated its database to now include the names of these new LEGO Vidiyo Bandmates minifigures, together with those included in the BeatBox collection. Let’s take a closer look at all eighteen of them.

With 18 minifigures and a handful of BeatBits tiles to collect, this first wave of LEGO Vidiyo minifigures sure had a strong start. Brickset has listed other sets in this new theme that are yet to be revealed. Will it be a larger set, somewhat similar to a concert stage? Or perhaps a recording studio? Well, I’m pretty much inclined to think towards that. Whatever is the case, the minifigures in this wave will surely be added to my collection. Who is your fav character so far? Let us know in the comments below.

The LEGO Vidiyo sets are scheduled to be released this March 1st, 2021, and are now listed over at LEGO Shop@Home.

LEGO Ideas Minifigure Keychains Now Available at LEGO Shop@Home

Well, here’s one way to gather your LEGO Ideas Central Perk minifigures. In case you missed it, LEGO Shop@Home has been updated with new minifig-inspired gears in the form of several LEGO Ideas minifigure keychains featuring the characters of the iconic hit TV series F.R.I.E.N.D.S. And in case you’re into collecting the minifigure characters, then grabbing these dangling accessories is a no-brainer.

This series of minifigure keychains consists of Ross, Chandler, Joey, Rachel, Monica, and Phoebe. For some reason, LEGO opted not to include a minifigure keychain version of Gunther (the Central Perk’s ubiquitous manager). I guess it’s a marketing strategy for adult LEGO fans to get the LEGO Ideas set itself (wink, wink). Whatever is the case, getting these LEGO Ideas minifigure keychains is a great way to add them to your collection if you’re not planning to purchase the LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319) set.

You may click on the following affiliate links below to know more about these keychains, with each of them retailing for $5.99.
