I guess you will not be surprised anymore about this next wave of LEGO set reveals, especially considering the fact that we already saw a handful of new-for-2020 sets make their public debut during the past week. For those who are not that much into LEGO’s licensed sets such as those from Star Wars or Trolls themes, then here’s something that you may want to check out. To be frank, this piece of news has been circulating around the web for a few days already. And as of to date, more and more LEGO City 2020 sets are being revealed as we count the days before January 1st.
Taking them on face value, I have to say that these upcoming LEGO City 2020 sets are, well, a bit underwhelming. I don’t want to make this post sound like a review or commentary, but I felt that I have to address the brick elephant in the room. Perhaps I have the previous LEGO City subthemes in my mind such as the successful LEGO City Space, Arctic,Mining, and Jungle subthemes as my benchmarks in looking at these LEGO City 2020 sets. Somehow, I don’t feel the same thrill and excitement for these new arrivals as compared to their predecessors. I know that LEGO has a tendency to rehash or take inspiration from its previous sets, but doing so on a regular basis leaves a sort of a ‘subtheme fatigue’ for those who are familiar with the LEGO City genre.
In any case, I’m still hopeful that LEGO has something new in store for its line-up of LEGO City 2020 sets. Its good to know that these current reveals are all limited to the first half of the upcoming year, so we can definitely expect more to come in the second half of 2020. My best bet is that the Summer 2020 wave of LEGO City sets will have a sort of an outback, safari kind of theme. One of the sets in this reveal is already a give away in the form of Safari Adventure (60267) so let’s see if this will eventually come to pass.
For now, let’s take a look at these new sets, and let me know in the comments below which one are you looking forward to. Special thanks to Hoth Bricks, Pricevortex and Mein Spielzeug for all of this info.
After the reveal of the first LEGO Marvel set to be released in 2020 in the form of the Avengers Hulk Helicopter Rescue (76144), third-party online retailers are slowly pulling the veil off the rest of the sets in this first wave of LEGO Marvel Avengers and Spider-Man 2020 sets. As reported by Promobricks, we can now see that LEGO has added several sets under this theme that seems to be a little bit off tangent as compared to the previous LEGO Avengers: Endgame sets. And since LEGO does not really keep a good track record of making their sets movie-accurate, its a bit hard to tell if these new-for-2020 sets are actually related to the MCU films.
To be completely honest, these new LEGO Marvel Avengers and Spider-Man 2020 sets maybe sort of underwhelming, except for some of the new minifigures that are offered with them. I bet that most LEGO minifig enthusiasts will be looking forward to that new Thanos minifigure, as well as for those new Spider-Girl Anya Corazon and Spider-Man Noire minifigs. And also from the looks of it, LEGO has thrown in two “4+” sets in this theme, which quite frankly is a bit expensive if I will base it from the Euro pricing as reported.
These images are still not the best ones out there but expect this post to be updated as soon as more crisp, official images are released by LEGO. Promobricks further mentions that these sets will be released sometime in February, but let’s see if these will be a part of LEGO’s January 2020 releases.
After their successful (and very colorful) debut this week, LEGO Shop@Home has updated their databases to now include more set images and official product descriptions of 2020’s LEGO Trolls World Tour sets, slated to arrive in stores on January 1st.
These new LEGO tie-in sets based on Dreamworks’ upcoming Trolls: World Tour sequel consists of seven new sets, with two being “4+” sets intended for younger, budding LEGO builders.

LEGO Friends have and perhaps will always be a regular brick staple for the LEGO Group. And now that the subtheme is close to celebrating almost a decade of its inception since 2012, let’s now take a look at what to expect from this series come 2020. These LEGO Friends 2020 sets were first unveiled by Swiss online retailer Mein Spielzeug. There eight sets introduced in this initial wave of offering, two of which belong to the ‘4+’ subtheme. I’m not that much of a fan of the LEGO Friends theme, but I have to say that some of these new-for-2020 sets are impressively designed. I like how The Big Bake Show (41393) and Friendship Bus (41395) turned out. The former is sizeable enough to offer a brick-rendition of an on-stage baking contest while the latter offers a variety of play features rolled into a mobile set.
Additionally, there are new LEGO Friends 2020 sets that LEGO refers to as Magic Cubes – somewhat similar to the idea and execution of LEGO Pods that were released some time ago. These new LEGO Friends Magic Cubes feature each of the Heartlake City residents at work in their typical areas of interest. What is interesting about these Magic Cubes is that you can somehow connect them in many different ways adding a new level of play feature once you manage to get all of them. Plus, you also get a mystery pet that I believe to be unique on each of the Magic Cubes.
Same with the rest of the LEGO 2020 sets that were revealed days ago, we can expect these LEGO Friends 2020 sets to be released on January 1st, 2020. Some third-party retailers may release these sets earlier though as early as December 26, so be sure to be on a lookout if you are interested to grab these.
After more and more LEGO sets are gradually revealed by other online retailers in time for LEGO’s 2020 releases for the first half of the year, we now have further info on what to expect from the LEGO Minecraft 2020 sets. Though the entire Minecraft franchise has taken a dip in terms of its popularity among young gamers, LEGO seems to have plenty of plans ahead for its tie-in merchandise.
Joining other LEGO Minecraft ‘BigFig’ sets from early this year, LEGO now introduces two additional sets under this format – the LEGO Minecraft Creeper with Ocelot (21156) and Pig with Zombie Baby (21157) – both of which are tagged as part of Series 2 under this subtheme. If everything goes well, then perhaps we can expect more sets coming from this direction.
We also have additional sets that offer a handful of new elements and characters. That buildable LEGO Minecraft Panda from set 21158 is definitely adorable, plus the new minifigure renditions of those nasty Illager mobs with their crossbow-wielding Pillagers and devastating Ravagers as depicted in set 21160, are probably good reasons for some to get these new LEGO Minecraft 2020 sets.
Same with the rest of the new-for-2020 licensed LEGO sets such as those coming from the Star Wars, Trolls, Disney Princess and Marvel themes, these new LEGO Minecraft 2020 sets are slated to be released on January 1st. Read on to know more about their piece count and price in Euros, and I will update this post once additional images are made available by LEGO from LEGO Shop@Home. Thanks to Promobricks for the heads up.
After catching a glimpse of them last month, we finally get to see how the LEGO Trolls World Tour sets will fair before they are released in January 2020. Yahoo has shared our first set images of six of these tie-in sets that celebrate Dreamworks’ sequel to their Trolls film back in 2016.
From the looks of it, these six LEGO Trolls World Tour sets feature a crazy colorful selection of building sets based on the other Troll kingdoms revealed in this sequel. This selection of new for 2020 LEGO sets consists of one “4+” set and five regular sets. I’m not really a fan of the first film, but I have to say that LEGO did an excellent job recreating these kaleidoscopic characters.
These new LEGO sets are all slated for a general release at the turn of the clock on January 1st, while the film itself will make its theatrical debut on April 17. Check out these crisp, set images and let me know what you think about them.
More and more new-for-2020 LEGO sets are gradually making their public debut. So much so that I have to admit that it’s a bit of a challenge to keep up with the wave of these new reveals. Following the recent unveiling of the new 2020 LEGO Star Wars, Ninjago and Technic sets, we now have our first look at the LEGO Creator 2020 sets courtesy of Swiss online retailer Mein Spielzeug.
This collection of new LEGO Creator 2020 sets is by far an impressive bunch, especially that Burger Monster Truck and Fire Dragon. Similar to other sets earlier revealed, we can somehow expect these to be released by January 2020. With these sets already being listed on other third-party retailers, we can somehow expect them to appear at LEGO Shop@Home sometime in December.
I’m particularly excited about that Burger Monster Truck actually, and it’s kind of interesting to see that LEGO opted to include a smaller build that is somehow similar to the controversial LEGO Ideas Space Rocket Ride (40335) promotional that was released way back in June of this year.
In any case, this latest wave of LEGO Creator 3-in-1 sets does not disappoint from a creative standpoint. Which one of these will be your first-day buy? Comment down below and let us know what you think.
After seeing two, new 2020 LEGO Speed Champions sets listed at LEGO Shop@Home last week, more news is coming in on what to expect from this continuously popular LEGO theme. Shared online by motoring website Car and Driver, we now have our first look at two additional LEGO Speed Champions sets both set to debut by January 2020. Following the same 8-stud wide design principle introduced to this new breed of LEGO brick speedsters, the LEGO Speed Champions Ferrari F8 Tributo (76895) and the LEGO Speed Champions 1985 Audi Sport quattro S1 (76897) are both 25% bigger than their predecessors.
The Ferrari F8 Tributo (76895) is based on the company’s most recent mid-engine sports car, noted for having Ferrari’s most advanced and powerful V-8 engine as of to date. This brick counterpart comes in at 275 pieces, including the usual minifigure racer.
The 1985 Audi Sport quattro S1 (76897) on the other hand, is more of a throwback to the 80s when this vintage racer was first introduced in a Geneva Motor Show and was once driven by legendary ace racer Michèle Mouton. This set comes in at 250 pieces and includes a similarly colored minifigure driver.
Read on for the rest of these set’s images and be sure to leave a comment down below on which of these 2020 LEGO Speed Champions sets you are most excited about.
LEGO Speed Champions Ferrari F8 Tributo (76895)
275 pieces | $19.99 USD
LEGO Speed Champions 1985 Audi Sport quattro S1 (76897)
Some third-party retailers continue to roll-out the next wave of LEGO sets for the first half of 2020. After the reveal of 2020’s first wave of LEGO Star Wars sets, Ninjago fans are now catching a glimpse of what to expect from its Season 12 sets, and some that follow the Legacy subtheme. This latest LEGO Ninjago 2020 sets are pretty interesting both in terms of design and the new parts and elements that come with them. Those new game controller sword hilts really caught my attention, plus those new arcade pod cases/pieces offer a lot of new building possibilities.
We can also expect that these new LEGO Ninjago 2020 sets will be released at the ring of the New Year’s bell on January 1st, with some of them appearing a bit early through some retailers. Though this reveal is quite lengthy, there are still some sets missing from this reveal so be sure to stay tuned here in our blogsite for more updates. Thanks again to Promobricks for the heads up.
They just keep on coming. After their initial confirmation last week by an online retailer, we now have official images of the next wave of LEGO Star Wars 2020 sets to watch out for in the first half of the said year. Courtesy of Promobricks, this collection of new LEGO Star Wars set images represent some of the new vehicles and characters in the upcoming conclusion of the Star Wars saga, The Rise of Skywalker, together with never before seen sets from the prequels and classic Star Wars movies.
I opted to include the expected retail price in Euros so as to have an estimate of how much these new LEGO Star Wars 2020 sets will be. I’m personally looking forward to that TIE Dagger/Sith TIE Fighter as I mentioned in my previous post, and seeing it now in its entirety does not disappoint. And if you’re trying to complete the minifigure roster of the ominous Knights of Ren, then it’s clear that you have to purchase this set, plus that new orange X-Wing Fighter. I’m also digging that Bantha and the way the designers are trying to incorporate more ‘organic’ builds in the Star Wars theme, similar to what they did with the LEGO Star Wars Escape Pod vs Dewback Microfighters (75228).
These sets are slated to be officially released in January 2020, with some of them might be appearing earlier through other third-party retailers. I’m curious to see how the new LEGO Star Wars busts will turn out, but since they are scheduled for a May 2020 release as Promobricks pointed out, then we might wait a bit more before catching a glimpse of these. Missing also from this list is another battle pack inspired by Disney+’s new hit series The Mandalorian. The LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Battle Pack (75267) comes in at 102 pieces and is expected to retail for around 20 Euros.
Without further ado, check out these crisp, official images and tell me what you think about them in the comments below.
