Official Images for the LEGO Bricklink Designer Program Sets Surfaced

If you’re using the LEGO Builder app on you’re iPhone or iPad, you may have noticed an update that added the official images of the crowdfunded LEGO Bricklink Designer Program sets. If you recall, the Bricklink Designer Program began first as the AFOL Designer Program in 2018 to bring together the best original creations from the LEGO builders community. The goal is to gather as much support as possible through a crowdfunding platform that will enable these LEGO MOCs to be mass-produced and recognized.

And thanks to a recent LEGO Builder update, we can now glimpse what we can expect from these sets’ official packaging. There are five sets under the LEGO Bricklink Designer Program; each set is intended for advanced LEGO builders due to their size and complexity.

Pre-orders have unfortunately ended, but if you happen to be the first 10,000 supporters who pre-ordered these sets, you can expect them to be shipped any time soon. The good thing is that building instructions in PDF format will also be available, so you can try and see if you can build these sets using your existing LEGO pieces, or you can order them through Bricklink.

LEGO Marvel Star-Lord’s Helmet (76251) Arriving in April!

Nope, this is not part of any advanced April Fool’s conspiracy. LEGO has just added another set to its Helmet Collection, and this time, it pays tribute to Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Because starting today, you can pre-order your very own LEGO Marvel Star-Lord’s Helmet (76251) over at LEGO’s online shopping portal.

It’s nice to see another Marvel character given the LEGO Helmet treatment. And this time around, Peter Quill’s Star-Lord joins the ranks of Iron Man, Venom, and Carnage to have this particular helmet motif. But what makes this most recent offering stand out is that it also doubles as a pencil pot. I appreciate how LEGO designers opted to include this functionality since it’s not just a centerpiece display but also serves a particular purpose. I will certainly like to have this on my desk.

The LEGO Marvel Star-Lord’s Helmet (76251) comes at 602 pieces and retails for $79.99. You can pre-order this now at LEGO.com, with a release date of April 1st. Check out the rest of its product details, and if you want, you can also use our affiliate link below to pre-order this set.

More LEGO BrickHeadz Disney Sets Coming This March

It looks like we can expect more Disney-inspired BrickHeadz sets anytime soon. Following the reveal of the LEGO BrickHeadz Disney 100th Celebration (40622) set earlier this month, LEGO.com has been updated revealing three more LEGO BrickHeadz Disney sets that will be available starting March 2023.

This next wave of LEGO BrickHeadz Disney sets takes inspiration from some of the most memorable characters that grew up with over the years. Right off the bat, I am very much excited to see my favorite Pixar robot Wall-E having another LEGO set dedicated to his name aside from his LEGO Ideas Wall-E (21303) back in 2015. I also love how Cruella De Vil and Maleficent turned out in their BrickHeadz form considering the relative complexity of their designs. The accessories that also come with these sets are pretty impressive as well. I appreciate the gesture of including several accessories like Merida’s bow and quiver, and Wall-E’s toolbox.

These LEGO BrickHeadz Disney sets are scheduled to be released on March 1, similar to the latest LEGO Technic and Star Wars Helmets as well. While waiting, you can add this LEGO BrickHeadz trio by checking out their respective affiliate links below.

New LEGO Marvel Doctor Strange 2023 Polybag Listed

Here’s a great way to have the minifigure version of the MCU’s Sorcerer Supreme added to your collection without breaking the bank. Referencing the penultimate film of the MCU Phase Four franchise, the LEGO Marvel Doctor Strange 2023 polybag takes its inspiration from The Multiverse of Madness and the many interdimensional portals that Strange uses in the film.

The LEGO Marvel Doctor Strange’s Interdimensional Portal (30652) polybag comes in at 44 pieces. It features a minifigure version of Doctor Strange that can also be found on other Multiverse of Madness sets, such as the Gargantos Showdown (76205) and the Sanctum Sanctorum (76218).

The polybag offering also features a microscale version of the portals that Doctor Strange creates, together with a pretty clever micro build to give perspective on what’s on the other side of the portal.

 

This polybag is listed over at JB Spielwaren for 3.39 Euros and can be pre-ordered. Having this polybag is a better option if you wish to add Doctor Strange to the roster of your LEGO Marvel minifigures without spending too much as in the case of larger sets.

Keep an eye on your local LEGO or other hobby stores if you wish to be the first to have this LEGO Marvel Doctor Strange 2023 polybag. More updates on this polybag coming soon.

 

LEGO Architecture World of Wonders (40585) GWP Set Coming Soon

LEGO.com’s customer service portal, particularly its building instructions page, may have given us a glimpse of the next gift-with-purchase we can expect any time soon. The LEGO Architecture World of Wonders (40585) set is the next LEGO promotional set that fans of the Architecture theme may want to add to their collection.


UPDATE (February 2, 2023): The LEGO  World of Wonders (40585) is now listed at LEGO’s VIP Rewards Center. For 2,700 VIP points, you can redeem a promo code that you can use for the next 60 days if you’re planning to make any LEGO purchases any time soon. If you’re looking forward to some of the March and April sets, while bagging this exclusive freebie at the same time, then planning your next purchase ahead will all be worth it. 


First is the LEGO World of Wonders (40585) which costs 2,700 points. The other gift is the Birthday Diorama (40584) which costs 2,100 points to get. Once you redeem the codes, you’ll have 60 days to use them so if there isn’t any catching your eye this month, you can wait until March when the next larger release schedule is happening.

Though there are no specifics yet regarding when and how to claim it, the LEGO Architecture World of Wonders (40585) microscale model is expected to weigh in at 382 pieces and features some of the world’s new Seven Wonders of the World.  This freebie of a set features miniature brick-built replicas of The Parthenon, The Great Wall of China, Al-Khazneh, and the Taj Mahal.

LEGO World of Wonders

To date, the LEGO Architecture theme has produced replicas of some of these new wonders of the world. And it’s cool to see how LEGO designers captured the likes of the LEGO Architecture Great Wall of China (21041) and Taj Mahal (21056) sets into microscale formats with this latest promotional offering. I am a fan of microscale models, so I’m looking forward to seeing this gift-with-purchase up close and personal. I hope LEGO will throw in some printed tiles instead of stickers for a premium GWP set like this one.

Currently, there is no official product listing for this new promotional set aside to this link pointing at its building instructions. But given its value and features, I say this will definitely come at a higher price point for qualifying purchases. I’ll keep this updated once new information comes in.

More LEGO Star Wars Helmets Coming in March 2023!

In case you missed it, LEGO.com has launched its latest addition to its LEGO Star Wars Helmets series to celebrate 20 years of the Star Wars Clone Wars era. And just in time for their physical debut at this year’s Nuremberg Toy Fair from February 1 to 6, 2023, we can now catch a glimpse of this latest subtheme offering.

This latest addition to the LEGO Star Wars Helmet Collection takes inspiration from the iconic characters of the Grand Army, particularly Captain Rex and Clone Commander Cody. We first saw the rise of the Clone army in the event of Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones and later during the events of the animated spin-off series The Clone Wars.

We also see another well-known get-up this time from the costume worn by Princess Leia in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. The famous bounty hunter disguise was worn by the Rebel Alliance leader as they infiltrated Jabba the Hut’s lair. This brick-built model also serves as another milestone as the Star Wars fandom celebrates the 40th anniversary of the film.
