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)

LEGO DC Comics Superheroes CMF

Simon Baz

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




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.


LEGO Technic Top Gear Set Coming in 2020

An interesting piece of news came out this morning, and it’s telling us that LEGO is adding another licensed set in its portfolio. To begin with, LEGO is no stranger in the automotive field with an impressive list of LEGO Technic sets that highlight the most sophisticated vehicles around such as the upcoming LEGO Technic Land Rover Defender (42110) and the superbly elegant Bugatti Chiron (42083). From the looks of it, LEGO is pushing the envelope once more by partnering with one of television’s longest-running, and high-adrenalin motoring entertainment program. BBC Studios just published a press release earlier today underscoring the venture that the British TV company and The LEGO Group will jointly undertake. Based on one of its highly popular series, BBC’s Top Gear will now have a LEGO set of its own, a LEGO Technic Top Gear set to be exact. According to License Global, this collaborative set is expected to launch in early 2020.

LEGO Technic Top Gear

Details about this new set are understandably scant as of this time, but from what we can glean from the press release, this LEGO Technic Top Gear set will definitely feature a distinctive, action-packed model that is reflective of the show’s fast-paced and stunt-filled sequences. There is no exact date given on when this set will be released, but we can somehow expect it to be officially revealed during the first quarter of 2020. Here’s BBC Studio’s complete press release for your reference.

LEGO Star Wars Triple Force Friday Promos Announced

LEGO Shop@Home has been recently updated to include a handful of Triple Force Friday promos that you may find attractive. Aside from the new LEGO sets that are based on the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker film and Disney+’s The Mandalorian, all of which are slated to be officially released on October 4, LEGO is spicing up our next brick purchase with these nice promos.

First off, we have the exclusive gift-with-purchase LEGO Star Wars Battle of Endor 20th Anniversary Edition (40362) set. This GWP set will be automatically added to your cart both in-store and online for a minimum qualifying purchase of LEGO Star Wars products worth $75 USD or more. Expect this freebie to be hugely popular, and with a relatively short window of opportunity to get this 197-piece commemorative brick diorama, I’m pretty sure supplies will run out fast.

Double VIP points are a somewhat regular staple of LEGO promotions. However, what we are excited to know about are which LEGO Star Wars sets will entitle you to those precious double VIP points. And on top of that, LEGO will also offer its usual price cuts on some selected LEGO Star Wars sets from October 4 to 6. Do take note that historically, these heavily discounted LEGO Star Wars sets usually runs out even during the initial hours of Force Friday deals. It will be helpful to keep a close eye on LEGO Shop@Home if you wish to bag that long-awaited LEGO set that you have kept on your radars. I’m not sure as of this moment which LEGO Star Wars sets will carry the Triple Force Friday discounts, but I’m somewhat hoping LEGO will include those larger, hard-to-find sets such as the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192), the LEGO Star Wars Tantive IV (75244) or the LEGO Star Wars UCS Y-Wing Starfighter (75181).

Triple Force Friday

And finally, for those of you who are looking forward to having your Triple Force Friday purchases in-stores, then LEGO has a special treat for all loyal store visitors. An In-Store Make and Take micro build of a Luke Skywalker Timeline will be given away to participants. Like other LEGO Store make and take events, expect that this promo may require pre-registration so be sure to drop by at the nearest LEGO brand store in your area.

Triple Force Friday

Be sure to check back with us for more info on these LEGO Star Wars Triple Force Friday deals. I’ll keep you posted once these promos go live next week.

LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth – 20th Anniversary Edition (40333) Promo Back in LEGO Shop@Home in Europe

Earlier this year, LEGO Star Wars fans in the US had a blast with LEGO’s May the 4th Be With You promos which included an exclusive freebie, the LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth – 20th Anniversary Edition (40333). This commemorative LEGO set was given for free for every single-receipt, qualifying LEGO Star Wars purchases worth $75 USD and above. I’m not really sure if this promotional was made available back then in other parts of the globe, particularly in Europe. But in case your in the European region as you’re reading this and you missed out on this limited-edition LEGO set, then you might notice already that it has been appearing in your LEGO Shop@Home cart if your LEGO Star Wars purchases have totalled  £75/€75 and more.

LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth

LEGO fans in the UK, France, Germany, Denmark, Italy, Spain, Ireland, and the rest of Europe have until October 3 before the launch of Triple Force Friday to avail of the LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth promotional item. On top of this, you might know already that one of the LEGO Star Wars promos for Triple Force Friday is the similarly scaled diorama of the LEGO Star Wars Battle of Endor – 20th Anniversary Edition (40362) which will go live just after midnight of October 3. If you’re looking forward to having these sets, then it’s imperative that you plan your next LEGO Star Wars purchase thoroughly.

Other than these collectible freebies, Triple Force Friday will see the return of Double VIP points and huge price cuts on select LEGO Star Wars sets. LEGO Star Wars fans in the US will also have the opportunity of making the most out of the Triple Force Friday midnight sales of October 3 at LEGO Stores in various Disneyland locations.

Again, if you intend to have the LEGO Star Wars Battle of Hoth commemorative set then be sure to make that purchase before October 3. May the brick force be with you.

A Look at LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober Promos in Asia

If there is one thing that is sorely missed by LEGO fans from the now virtually defunct Toys R Us, are the various LEGO promos that the mega toy store launches at this time of the year. Dubbed as LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober promos, this LEGO TRU promotional offers a buying incentive to LEGO fans who will make their LEGO purchases at TRU during specified weeks in the month of October. After TRU’s demise in the first quarter of 2018, LEGO fans have a lot to get used to particularly with the fact that the annual LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober promos will no longer be around. Indeed, one may say that there were still last year’s LEGO TRU Bricktober Marvel, Harry Potter, and Jurassic World exclusive collectible minifigures promo. But their very limited release and the relative difficulty of obtaining them gave the impression that LEGO may just be getting rid of these promotional minifigs which the company has already prepared way before Toys R Us in the US eventually closed.

However, this may not be the case with other regional Toys R Us branches in other parts of the globe. Essentially, these TRU branches are independent of their US counterpart, and LEGO fans in these regions may still be able to enjoy their annual LEGO TRU Bricktober promos. Brickfinder reports that in Asia, it can be seen that Bricktober is still alive and kicking. In particular, TRU stores in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan and the Philippines are still carrying the highly popular promotions.

This year’s LEGO Toys R Us Bricktober regional promo features a mini-scaled diorama of the four seasons, highlighting certain places and attractions in the Asian region. In case you need to know, here are the following dates when these Bricktober sets will be available in the abovementioned participating countries, including the price points for qualifying purchases converted in USD based on prevailing foreign exchange rates.


(Qualifying LEGO purchases of equal to or higher than $61.23 USD)

      • September 24 to 30 – Spring
      • October 1 to 7 – Summer

      • October 22 to 28 – Winter

      • October 7 to 20 – Summer
      • October 21 to 27 – Autumn
      • October 28 to 31 – Winter

It’s great to hear that even though LEGO Toys R Us promos are basically dead in the US, there are other TRU Asian stores that still carry the sought-after LEGO promotional. Unless you are currently residing in these territories, then for LEGO fans outside of Southeast Asia, these Bricktober sets will most probably be available in secondary markets such as eBay.

Classic LEGO Pirates Are Back With The LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay

The First 2019 LEGO Ideas Review Results are on a roll. After the announcement of the now approved LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street and LEGO Ideas Playable Piano, it looks like LEGO fans are on to a nostalgic pirate trip in this next approved 10K project, the LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay.

LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay

Originally designed by Spanish audio-visual artist Pablo Jimenez (aka Bricky_Brick over at LEGO Ideas), the LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay is a modular set that every fan of the classic LEGO Pirates will surely want to have. It has been four years ago when LEGO released its last pirate-inspired sets since the theme’s inception way back in 1989. Undoubtedly, this is one of LEGO’s most beloved and successful original creations, and seeing the LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay finally becoming a reality as an official LEGO set seems to be long overdue. The best part of it is that the brick-built pirate fortress follows a modular design similar to the likes of the LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store (21310).

LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay

Pablo’s original design clocks in at somewhere between 2,550 to 2,650 pieces and includes seven (7) pirate minifigures. It also features four (4) interchangeable levels that highlight some of the things that a sea-loving pirate would love to do: having a hearty meal, manning the cannons, and planning their next adventure on the high seas.

The LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay

Prepare the cannons sailors, you have to defend the bay!

Welcome to the impregnable pirate fortress, house of Red beard, many sailors fear these waters, the most dangerous pirates make their stop here. Be careful not to be locked in jail or possibly the only place you can be, as long as you do not find the secret exit.

There is a rumor, they say that there is a treasure map, it is believed that it is below the canteen, many of them are looking for the treasure but none of them have yet achieved it. Will you be able to find it?

It is time to return to the classics and what better than this super bastion built on shipwrecks, with traps like the pendular anchor that warns unexpected visitors and the dog and the monkey guardian. The food is delicious in our tavern, many pirates only stop to eat here. In this small pirate town we find a small farm with pigs and chickens, lobsters crabs and fish, also delight this area.

A Modular set that includes 7 minifigures and: 1 monkey, 1 scorpion, 3 crabs, 3 hens, two pigs, 3 parrots, a shark, and a dog.

The LEGO Ideas Pirate Bay is tentatively scheduled for release some time next year, and with two other equally impressive LEGO Ideas sets that go along with it, 2020 is certainly a great year to be a LEGO Ideas fan. Again, our warmest congratulations to Pablo Jimenez and to all who made this next LEGO set possible.

Playable Piano Slated To Be the Next LEGO Ideas Set

Following the announcement of the LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street as our next LEGO Ideas set, the First 2019 Review Results also included another set that eventually received the thumbs up from the LEGO Ideas Design Team. If you recall earlier in May this year, the LEGO Ideas Playable Piano project by Donny Chen (aka SleepyCow over at LEGO Ideas) required further review due to the intricate details and sheer complexity in building the project’s various moving parts and features. Now after four months of waiting, I’m glad that this LEGO Ideas project finally got the green light in becoming an official LEGO set.

Playable Piano

The LEGO Ideas Playable Piano is clearly a work of passion for Donny. Being a piano teacher himself, he designed the Playable Piano with expert knowledge on its various moving parts and complex internal mechanism. The attention to detail that Donny devoted to this set is impressive in itself. The original design is made up of 2,798 LEGO pieces that recreate a working grand piano. Here’s a brief description of this set, followed by a brief video that shows us some of the play features on this upcoming set.

The Concert Grand Piano, one of the most complex instruments of all time, is now in Lego form.

Built entirely from 2798 authentic LEGO bricks, it accurately captures the mechanical details of a real piano, featuring:

  • Removable keyboard with 25 independent working keys, each key connects to its own hammer.
  • Working damper and pedal function.
  • 25 strings.
  • Realistic piano lid which can be open either half stick of full stick.
  • Realistic fallboard with a soft close.
  • Removable music stand.
  • Height adjustable piano bench.
  • Self-playing function enabled by adding PowerFunction, which allows keys to play at different tempos and rhythms.
  • Realistic piano wheels.

The LEGO Ideas Playable Piano is set to be released sometime next year, with the LEGO Ideas Design Team working hard to perfect this masterpiece. Congratulations Donny Chen, and I can’t wait to build this next superb LEGO Ideas set.

Finally, A LEGO Ideas Set That Will Show Us How To Get To Sesame Street

The results are in: and it looks like we have another LEGO Ideas set that is destined to be a hit among AFOLs who grew up in the company of Elmo, Big Bird, Bert & Ernie and other memorable characters of the iconic children’s television show Sesame Street. The LEGO Ideas First 2019 Review results were finally announced, and wow, I’m really proud and happy for this one. If you recall earlier this year, we have high hopes for Ivan Guerrero’s (aka bulldoozer21 on LEGO Ideas) 123 Sesame Street project as it gathers the necessary votes in becoming the next LEGO Ideas set. Now thanks to the support and vote of confidence of more than 10,000 LEGO fans around the world, we can finally see this new LEGO set come to life.

Sesame Street

In my opinion, the LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street symbolizes a perfect union between LEGO and PBS, with both companies giving a premium on the value of creative play among children. I literally grew up and learned my ABCs thanks to Sesame Street which were hugely popular in the Philippines during the 1980s. So seeing this set becoming an official LEGO Ideas set really feels quite nostalgic, similar to how excited I was when Lendy Tayag’s LEGO Ideas Voltron (21311) became a reality. Another reason why I’m so proud in seeing this original brick creation become an officially approved LEGO Ideas set is the fact that this is another testament to the creative genius of the Filipino AFOL community. The LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street is the 2nd LEGO Ideas set originally designed by a Filipino, following the likes of Lendy Tayag and his LEGO Ideas Voltron.

Ivan’s original design for the LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street comes in at 2,945 pieces but we can expect this to be tentative since the LEGO Design Team will still introduce some adjustments before its debut sometime next year. The official set is also expected to feature a huge collection of new minifigures of some of the popular characters on Sesame Street including Bob, Gordon, Susan, Bert, Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, Biff, Sully, Ernie, Cookie Monster, Count von Count, Prairie Dawn, Grover, and Elmo. Each portion of the iconic Sesame Street apartment features several memorable episodes of the TV show in which AFOLs who grew up with the series will surely recognize.

To know more on how this set was created, be sure to read on Ivan’s 10K Club Interview over at the LEGO Ideas blog site. Again, congratulations Ivan Guerrero and hope to see your LEGO Ideas 123 Sesame Street on store shelves very soon.
