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.

Coming Soon: LEGO VIP Add-On Packs

The LEGO Customer Service Portal has been updated to include several building instructions place holders that hint at the possibility of certain LEGO VIP Add-On packs to be released soon. To be precise, this listing does not include any building instructions, but images of what we can expect from these offerings.

Thanks to Brickset, we now have initial images of these LEGO VIP Add-On Packs and the elements and pieces that go along with them. Frankly, the concept is somewhat similar to the LEGO xtra theme, with the Add-On packs basically offering significantly more LEGO elements and pieces that revolve around a particular theme.

There’s no word as of now on how LEGO VIP members can avail of these add-ons. It might be a form of freebie that will be featured in next month’s LEGO Store Calendar, or perhaps as a reward via the LEGO VIP Rewards Center. We just have to wait and see. For now, it will be helpful if you can keep tabs on our blog site for future updates. Let’s take a look at what we can expect from these expansions packs.

LEGO Ideas Seinfeld (21328) Officially Revealed!

After providing a teaser on its imminent arrival, the LEGO Group has finally unveiled its next LEGO Ideas set. As one of the qualifying product ideas during the Third 2019 LEGO Ideas Review Stage, the LEGO Ideas Seinfeld (21328) set is now officially revealed, with early VIP access slated for July 21, and a general public release on August 1st.

The LEGO Ideas Seinfeld (21328) is a fan-designed tribute (created by LEGO fan designer Brent Waller from Australia) to the iconic 90s show which began on July 5, 1989. It’s pretty neat for LEGO to consider this milestone as the official reveal date for this set. This commemorative set features Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment, a buildable stage for the stand-up comic and a Festivus pole to inspire builders to relive the most classic moments from the series. It comes in at 1,326 pieces and is expected to retail for $79.99 on its launch date.

1,326 pieces | $79.99 | Coming soon on July 21 for early VIP access, and August 1 in all LEGO Stores nationwide. 

THAT IS ONE MAGIC LEGO® IDEAS SEINFELD SET

  • New LEGO ® Ideas Seinfeld set celebrates the iconic sitcom created by Jerry Seinfeld and Larry David
  • The set is revealed on the anniversary of the first episode of the iconic comedy show – July 5th, 1989
  • The LEGO Ideas set was designed by LEGO fan Brent Waller, from Brisbane, Australia, and features Jerry’s flat, a stand-up stage, and the five iconic characters

5th July 2021: Fans of classic 90s sitcom Seinfeld can now recreate some of the most iconic scenes from the series with the new LEGO® Ideas Seinfeld set from the LEGO Group. Featuring Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment, a buildable stage for the stand-up comic and a Festivus pole the set inspires builders to relive the most classic moments from the series.

The highly anticipated set was created by LEGO fan Brent Waller, from Brisbane, Australia, via his submission on the LEGO Ideas® platform, a LEGO initiative that takes new ideas that have been imagined and voted for by fans and turn them into reality. 

So, whether you want to re-enact the Story of Festivus, the Wallet Scene, or the Fix Up, the set’s intricate props and features transport you directly back to New York in the 90s, enabling you to create your very own Show About Nothing in brick form.

LEGO fan designer, Brent, who is the co-founder of a video games company, loved LEGO as a kid but was re-introduced to it as an adult, and combined with his skill as a 3D artist he set about designing his own LEGO creations – including creating the Seinfeld set. Talking about the design, Brent said, “I loved Seinfeld in the 90s and recently re-watched them all. I thought it was a travesty that a LEGO Seinfeld set didn’t exist so I made an effort to resolve that and make the best rendition of Jerry’s Apartment and the gang that I could. The biggest challenge was trying to cram as much detail from the show into the kitchen, all the cupboards, items in the cupboard, and on the bench-tops. But I am very proud of how it turned out.”

Some of the instantly recognizable features include the kitchen with buildable counter, fridge, microwave, oven, and more; living room with a sofa; tables; an office; a buildable stage for stand-up comedian Jerry and a Festivus pole, collectively inspiring memories of comical moments from the show’s 180 episodes!

The set features 5 minifigures inspired by the iconic main characters and one notable postal worker from the show; Jerry Seinfeld, George Costanza, Cosmo Kramer, Elaine Benes, and Newman are all included decked out in iconic 90s outfits.

Federico Begher, VP of Global Marketing at The LEGO Group commented, “The LEGO Ideas platform is a great way for fans to share their ideas with us and their passion for a particular theme. Not only did Brent have a personal desire to create this build, but other fans also agree and he gained the necessary 10,000 community votes needed for us to consider creating it into a product.

Seinfeld is a classic sitcom and a cultural icon that was huge in the 90s and still stands the test of time today. The combination of the quirky characters and the nostalgia of the show is the perfect fit for LEGO and when we saw the concept we just knew we had to make it. I am so excited to see how this has been brought to life in LEGO form and the attention to detail from the furniture to some of the minifigures accessories.”

LEGO® Ideas Seinfeld set is available for LEGO VIP members from 21st July and for all from LEGO Stores and Lego.com/Seinfeld from 1st August 2021 at the recommended retail price of €79.99 / $79.99 / £69.99

LEGO Ideas Seinfeld (21328) Coming Soon!

The LEGO Group has just released a teaser via its social media channel hinting at the arrival of the much-awaited LEGO Ideas Seinfeld (21328). As a qualifying product idea during the Third 2019 LEGO Ideas Review Stage, this fan-designed creation is a tribute to the iconic 90s hit comedy TV series that celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2019.

The teaser image features the minifigures of Kramer, George, Jerry, Elaine, and Newman. And since the show’s very first episode was aired on July 5, 1989, it is only fitting that LEGO makes its official reveal this July 5 as well.

The LEGO Ideas Seinfeld (21328) is the second among the three product ideas that eventually made it to the top of the list of the LEGO Ideas Review Team during the Third 2019 LEGO Ideas Review Stage. The LEGO Ideas Typewriter (21327) is already released, and we only have the LEGO Ideas Home Alone McAllister’s House waiting to be announced.

Be sure to stay tuned for more info about our next LEGO Ideas set. I’m pretty sure that we will hear from LEGO soon enough.

LEGO Technic Ferrari 488 GTE “AF Corse #51” (42125) Speed Its Way on a Real Race Track

LEGO goes to great lengths to set another milestone with its line of LEGO Technic sets. From creating a life-sized, brick-built Lamborghini Sián, to a driveable LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron, LEGO is pushing another first with a never-before-tried stunt with its LEGO Technic Ferrari 488 GTE “AF Corse #51” (42125).

Released earlier this year, the LEGO Technic Ferrari 488 GTE now had the honor and opportunity of speeding through the famous Modena circuit in Italy. Now just to be clear, the set did not actually race on the track autonomously but was mounted in front of a real Ferrari 488 GTE race car, driven by Ferrari Competizioni GT Official Driver Giancarlo Fisichella.

LEGO Technic Ferrari 488 GTE

Launching at full speed, it was impressive to see that the Ferrari 488 GTE’s brick counterpart didn’t buckle at the sheer force of the speed that it is traveling at 208 kph. To give LEGO fans a unique perspective of this accomplishment, this attempt was documented using 8 cameras and 2 drones giving us a unique racing perspective coming from different angles. LEGO promises to share this video soon, so I’m quite excited to see how it turned out.

You may read LEGO’s full press release for more information about this feat. Likewise, you may click on the following affiliate link below if you wish to know more about this latest LEGO Technic offering.

LEGO Marvel Spider-Man: No Way Home Sets Now Listed at LEGO Shop@Home

LEGO’s online store has been updated to now include three LEGO Marvel Spider-Man: No Way Home tie-in sets, all scheduled to be released on October 1st. I have to say that this came in as a surprise, and not to mention bundled with a possible spoiler alert. LEGO has a somewhat good track record of spoiling things for MCU fans, so if you’re mindful of these things then I guess you have to click that back button right now.

With that out of the way, let’s look at what these three sets have to offer. From the get-go, we have two standard sets included in this subtheme, with one particularly labeled for budding LEGO fans. The first and most obvious set is the Spider-Man at the Sanctum Workshop (76185) featuring a new minifigure version of the Sorcerer Supreme, including a new cape element for the Cloak of Levitation. I’m really glad that LEGO opted for an actual LEGO piece for this one, given the sentient cloak’s role in their fight against Thanos in Infinity War. I’m happy that it was not reduced to yet another piece of LEGO fabric. The second set, Spider-Man’s Drone Duel (76195), gives us a new version of both the Vulture and Spidey. I’m not really sure how these sets foreshadow any plot points in the upcoming film. But seeing how they are designed offers a strong indication of how things might turn out for Spider-Man.

Here are the set’s official images and you may click on their respective affiliate links if you wish to know more about them. Again, these sets are all slated to be released in October just in time for the holidays. Marvel’s Spider-Man: No Way Home is scheduled to be released in cinemas in December.

Spider-Man at the Sanctum Workshop (76185)

355 pieces | $39.99 | Minifigures include Spider-Man, MJ, Doctor Strange, Wong.

 

 

Spider-Man’s Drone Duel (76195)
