A First Glimpse at the LEGO Trolls Minifigures

Back in May, it was announced that Dreamworks have entered into a partnership with LEGO as part of its efforts to boost marketing for its upcoming film Trolls World Tour,  as a sequel for its 2016 self-titled movie Trolls. The said sequel is slated to arrive in theaters in April next year, but it seems that early as now, we are catching a glimpse of how these LEGO Trolls minifigures will turn out.

Thanks once more to FalconFan1414 over on Instagram, we can now partially see how these tie-in minifigs will look like. Actually, the image below can be seen from the pages of the upcoming November 2019 issue of the LEGO Life Magazine, where you can see the silhouettes of the minifigure versions of Branch, Poppy and Queen Barb as seen in the film.

Though the image that FalconFan1414 shared wasn’t that clear, one can immediately notice that this series of minifigs is a first of its kind. When this new LEGO theme was announced earlier this year, I was actually hoping for new minifig heads that may, well, feature some trolls’ hair that made the toy series popular back in the 80s. I know now that its a longshot, and that the process of adding synthetic hair on minifigure headpieces is perhaps technically difficult and close to impossible.

Nevertheless, these LEGO Trolls minifigures share a common feature of having oversized heads for that matter, and it looks like the headpieces are made of a single head mold. Such feature accounts for the disproportionally large heads of these minifigs, given that they also come with short legs. You may not be a fan of such minifigure designs, but I have to admire the color scheme on these minifig characters including the dual printing that comes with their arms.

We don’t have an exact date on when these LEGO Trolls sets will be out, but I guess its safe to say that official word will be out sometime in January 2020 where LEGO traditionally releases a huge update on its upcoming sets for the first half of the year. Trolls World Tour is scheduled for a theatrical release in the US on April 17, 2020.

Thanks again to FalconFan1414 for the tip.

All of the Rumored LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF (71026) Characters Revealed

We now a glimpse of the entire roster of the rumored LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF (71026) characters, courtesy of a reliable source from the LEGO fan community. Rumors have been steadily rising on which DC Comics characters will make it to the circle of 16 minifigures included in this upcoming collectible minifigure series, and thanks to 1414falconfan, he managed to compile an interesting list of all the DC characters that are expected to be included in this series. Check out this nifty compilation below.

Though this listing is not 100% conclusive until such time that LEGO gives its official press release, it is fair to say that this confirms what we know so far about the first names of DC superheroes and villains that will be included.

  1. Cyborg
  2. Simon Baz
  3. Sinestro
  4. Huntress
  5. Bumblebee (from Teen Titans)
  6. Classic Wonder Woman
  7. Mister Miracle
  8. Aquaman
  9. Joker (from The Dark Knight Returns comics)
  10. Superman (from New 52, “The Final Days of Superman” storyline)
  11. Classic Batman
  12. Cheetah
  13. Bat-Mite
  14. Flash (Jay Garrick)
  15. Metamorpho
  16. Stargirl

As you can see, the final four characters to close this circle are Bat-Mite, Jay Garrick’s original version of the Flash, Joker from The Dark Knight Returns comics and a newer version of Superman from the New 52 series. I’m really excited about that Jay Garrick and Joker minifigs, and can’t wait to see their renditions in minifigure formats.

This list may seem quite odd and random at first, but seeing how it is a mixture of both classic and new characters spanning the entire history of DC comic books, will perhaps make it one of LEGO’s most sought after CMF series. I can just imagine how LEGO product designers burned the midnight oil in figuring out which character will be included to this list of LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF (71026). I know not every LEGO and DC fans will be pleased about this selection and it’s impractical for LEGO to expect it as such. But then again, I guess one of the overarching ideas for every CMF series is to give it a particular vibe or character. And I believe this upcoming series has achieved this which makes it even more exciting.

Again, please be aware that even though this CMF series and the characters listed in them are most likely to happen, they are still supposed to be treated as rumors until such time they are officially revealed in the next few weeks.

What do you think about this selection? Which are you most excited for? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

UPDATE: More Info On the LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF (71026) Series

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned how the rumor mill was on a roll with regards to the recent hype on the upcoming LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF (71026). After having a glimpse of the initial roster of DC superheroes and villains included in this next wave of CMF, we now have more info spreading over the LEGO fan community regarding the additional DC characters that will be included in this series.

Aside from the fact that we now have an official set number tagged to this CMF series, I am certain that this wave is slated to be a part of LEGO’s January 2020 releases, or perhaps even earlier. Furthermore, all signs are pointing out to the very real possibility that this CMF series will have a total of 16 DC characters included in it. As of now, here’s an updated list of the names included in this LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF series.

Obviously, we still have four minifigures waiting to be confirmed. The list of other possible characters is indeed a long one given DC’s expansive universe of superheroes and super-powered villains. However, if my hunch serves me right, it seems that LEGO is moving towards giving us a complete set of classic Justice League members in this CMF. Though it will be a bit out of place to see Simon Baz included in this roster only to be joined in by Hal Jordan’s Green Lantern, I’m still looking forward to seeing the classic versions of Superman, Flash and Martian Manhunter to complete the league.

Again, if you’re actively following these developments via social media, then you may have seen already these minifigures that I’ve mentioned. So it’s just a matter of time before all of the characters in this wave of LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF (71026) will be revealed.

While waiting for more info on this next series of LEGO Collectible Minifigures, be sure to head over at Brick Show’s Shop to get a first-hand look at this upcoming CMF collection once LEGO gives out an official press release.

LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF Series Confirmed

A few weeks ago, we reported some bit of smoke coming from the rumor mill that a LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF is somewhat on its way. Truth be told, the news of such a possibility has been floating around for quite some time. And not until earlier today that evidence of such a rumor has actually been corroborated, well, from unofficial channels.

A quick #legoleaks search over at Instagram will show you that some images of these purported CMF series have already been released. Like before, we are not in liberty to show you these images here on our blog site, but if you don’t mind some spoilers, then I suggest that you read on.

As of press time, we can confirm that 7 from these LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF has already been revealed which seems to include a collection of comic book characters that represent both classic and contemporary versions of well-known DC heroes and villains. Considering that this upcoming LEGO CMF series is slated to be released early in 2020, then we can expect more images (aka leaks) to be out in the upcoming weeks.

For starters, we have the following confirmed DC characters in this next wave of LEGO CMF:

Classic Sinestro (in an earlier black and blue uniform)

Stargirl

Metamorpho

Simon Baz

Classic Cyborg (breaking free from what looks like a purple chain from the classic comics)

 

Huntress

 

Classic Batman

 

Feel free to comment below if you think I missed out on any particular detail that these minifigs might have. They’re impressive actually, and I’m excited to see the rest of the DC characters that LEGO added to this latest CMF. We already have the LEGO Batman Movie CMF Series 1 and Series 2 which in themselves have introduced a fair number of DC characters in LEGO minifig form. So having a new CMF line that is entirely dedicated to DC Comics is a welcomed move that will expand our collection of LEGO DC superheroes minifigures.  I’ll update this post as more info comes in so I hope you’ll stay tuned.

WATCH: A Closer Look at the LEGO CMF Series 19 (71025) Box Distribution

We saw its official images a couple of weeks ago, and this time we now have an idea on how many complete sets we can expect right out of the box of the upcoming LEGO CMF Series 19 (71025). YouTuber The Brick Shack managed to get his hands on three unopened boxes of this latest CMF line and has now revealed that we can expect three complete sets from each box of Series 19 collectible minifigs. Watch his video below.

Towards the end of his video, The Brick Shack has confirmed that the box distribution for the LEGO CMF Series 19 are as follows:

  • Dog Walker x3
  • Fox Girl x3
  • Video Gamer x5
  • Monkey King x3
  • Shower Guy x3
  • Coder Girl x4
  • Black Knight x4
  • Mountain Biker x3
  • Mummy x5
  • Firefighter x3
  • Explorer x4
  • Pet Owner x3
  • Pizza Guy x4
  • Rainbow Bear x4
  • Intergalactic Bounty Hunter x5
  • Rugby Player x4

From the looks of it, you can snag three complete sets out of an unopened box plus 12 additional loose minifigs on the side since each box contains 60 blind bags priced at $3.99 USD each. Furthermore, it was also revealed that the 1st and 2nd row of each box offers a complete set of LEGO CMF Series 19. So it goes without saying that should you wait for their release on the 1st week of September, then better keep an eye on that freshly opened box in-store if you want to get all of them in one go. It also saves you the time and effort of feeling your way through each blind bag for that matter.

Special thanks to The Brick Shack for sharing this info.

LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary Obi-Wan Kenobi Collectible Minifigure Revealed

Following the reveal of the LEGO Star Wars 2oth Anniversary Podracer (30461) and Snowspeeder (30384) polybags, fans can expect another collectible that celebrates 20 years of LEGO Star Wars. Thanks to a local eBay listing,  we now have a look at the LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary Obi-Wan Kenobi Collectible Minifigure (30624) expected to arrive anytime soon.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Collectible Minifigure

Obi-Wan Kenobi Collectible Minifigure

This next LEGO Star Wars collectible takes its cue from the first Obi-Wan minifigure that was released in LEGO Star Wars Landspeeder (7110) from 1999. It also comes with a buildable stand featuring a printed base with the exclusive 20 Years of LEGO Star Wars logo. This is similar to other collectible minifigures included in the line-up LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary sets.

We have no other info as of press time regarding the availability of this polybag, but Toys N Bricks surmise that this Obi-Wan Kenobi Collectible Minifigure (30624) may be available as an upcoming LEGO promo. LEGO in the past has similarly released several related promotional CMFs including the Han Solo Mudtrooper (40300), DJ (40298) from The Last Jedi subtheme, and the Scariff Stormtrooper (40176) and R3-M2 (40268) both from Rogue One. All of these minifigs were given away for free for qualifying LEGO purchases worth $30 to $50 USD. So it is not far-fetched to consider if this Obi-Wan collectible will have the same treatment.

We’ll be on the lookout once news about this new LEGO Star Wars collectible breaks out. For the meantime, be sure to check out the rest of the LEGO Star Wars 20th Anniversary sets by clicking on the links below.

A Look at the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 19 (71025)

I was mostly offline during these past few days since I shared some of my initial thoughts on the next wave of LEGO collectible minifigs (was struggling with a ridiculous amount of schoolwork during these times).  I must also admit that I based my opinion of them on a blind bag checklist that was leaked on social media sites. But thanks to online German toy store JB Spielwaren, we can now have a better look at these images. These are official images by the way that LEGO provided to third party retailers and as of this posting Spielwaren has them up on their site so I guess its fair game sharing these here are as well. I’m still waiting for LEGO to announce the official names of these characters from the LEGO Collectible Minifigures Series 19 (71025), so for the meantime let’s settle for these preliminary names. Here we go.

Exclusive LEGO DC Comics Zebra Batman SDCC 2019 Minifigure Revealed

After unveiling its first SDCC 2019 minifigure exclusive a couple of weeks ago, LEGO has now revealed its next event-exclusive minifig via Twitter. The LEGO DC Comics Zebra Batman is the second SDCC 2019 exclusive offering following the Spider-Man Advanced Suit. This yet another version of the Dark Knight takes its cue from the Detective Comics Issue #275 released in January of 1960 and will be available to all SDCC 2019 attendees on July 20 through a randomized instant-win lottery.

In the comics, Zebra-Batman, aside from his rather weird appearance, was imbued with magnetic powers that he received from the same machine that powered the supervillain Zebra-Man.

In case you need to know, this latest iteration of Batman in a trippy kind of suit is the 77th LEGO minifig rendition of the Caped Crusader in minifigure form and the second LEGO SDCC exclusive offering since 2008. So what do you think of the LEGO DC Comics Zebra Batman? Do you think its a good call from LEGO to have such an exclusive? Let me know your comments below.

 

SDCC 2019 Exclusive Reveal: The LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Advanced Suit

In the tradition of San Diego Comic-Con’s LEGO exclusives, LEGO has now revealed this year’s first minifigure to be made available to participants. The LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Advanced Suit takes its cue from 2018’s hit Playstation 4 video game, Spider-Man

We can assume that SDCC 2019 attendees will have access to this LEGO minifig exclusive via the same electronic raffle/system as in previous years. Furthermore, according to info coming from Allen (aka The Brick Fan), there will also be a randomized instant-win raffle event where Comic-Con attendees can get a chance to win this LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Advanced Suit exclusive.

LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Advanced Suit LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Advanced Suit

To be frank, I’m still hoping that The LEGO Group will still consider having Comic-Con LEGO exclusives such as this, be available to other LEGO fans who cannot attend these kinds of conventions for obvious geographical reasons. Perhaps LEGO can give a thought on how to make these minifigs available to the general public after a certain number of months. This will also somehow discourage scalpers for charging a ridiculous amount for this SDCC LEGO exclusives over at eBay.

Anyways, if you’re into this kind of LEGO collectibles, then be sure to bookmark and check back with us again as more info comes out regarding the details of how to avail of this minifig. I also expect additional LEGO SDCC 2019 minifigures to be revealed anytime soon.
