After releasing a cryptic, brick version of one of the clips in the Season 4 trailer of Netflix’s Stranger Things, LEGO seems to bring us closer to the possibility of seeing a new LEGO Stranger Things set anytime soon. LEGO seems to build up the hype when it responded to a LEGO fan’s comment over the latter’s tweet last weekend.
Of course, this could mean a ton but given that the context of the comment at that time was all about the likelihood of having new LEGO Stranger Things set or sets soon, then we can somehow have a level of confidence that this is something of a remote possibility in the next few weeks.
I’m not saying that this is in a way, a form of official confirmation since this is still part of LEGO’s marketing strategy to build up the hype. For all we know, it could just be a simple confirmation of the partnership between LEGO and Netflix, considering their 2019 collaboration on the LEGO Stranger Things The Upside Down (75810) set which is also believed to be scheduled for retirement this year. It may be a way of supporting the series’ 4th season run. But this response from the LEGO Group’s social media handler seems to give more weight to the possibility of related future sets being on their way.
The LEGO fan community (aka that sector where the leaky faucet reigns supreme) seems to be relatively quiet, suggesting that whatever is on our way, it is still a closely guarded secret as formidable as that of the Hawkins National Laboratory. Whatever happens, I guess I will take LEGO’s word for it, and we ought to keep our eyes and radars open for any info that will point us in the direction of these possible future sets.
So what do you think about this latest hint from LEGO? Any guesses on what’s in store? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
Following the teaser it released last weekend, LEGO has finally unveiled the LEGO FRIENDS The Apartments (10292) and has listed accordingly over at LEGO Shop@Home. Based on the iconic Warner Bros. TV series from the 90s, this latest brick rendition also celebrates the upcoming FRIENDS: The Reunion Special which will stream at HBO Max.
This set brings to life those memorable moments of the gang over at Monica’s and Rachel’s, and Chandler and Joey’s apartments. Coming in at more than 2,000 pieces, this set is quite huge and offers tons of references and play features that loyal fans of the show will quickly recognize. We have a turkey figure that represents the one that Monica wore on her head, Phoebe’s creepy terrible art piece, and even that moment when a cat attacked Ross while Joey and Chandler are both busy taking care of their adopted chicken and duckling. Needless to say, it’s a great follow-up set to the LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319) from two years ago.
These and much and more are all featured in the new LEGO FRIENDS The Apartments (10292) set is slated to be available for all LEGO VIP members for $ 149.99 starting May 19, with a general release on June 1.

In case you missed it, LEGO released a couple of teasers over the weekend that hints at two upcoming LEGO sets based on existing licensed titles. Shared over its official Twitter page, these new LEGO licensed sets will most likely cater to adult fans of LEGO and will build on what its predecessors have offered before.
Both released in 2019, the LEGO Stranger Things The Upside Down (75810) and LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319) are some of LEGO’s licensed sets that have the more serious LEGO collector in mind. The former is a form of collaboration with Netflix particularly in promoting one of its hit series Stranger Things, while the latter is a celebration of the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. TV series, one of the most popular sitcoms of our time.
And after two years since their launch, LEGO’s recent tweets came in as a welcome surprise that hints at the continuity of these themes. Check out these LEGO teasers below.
These teasers don’t say much about the kind of sets that we can expect from LEGO coming from these themes. The LEGO Stranger Things post is simply a brick/minifigure version of a clip from the series Season 4 trailer as you can see below.
The LEGO F.R.I.E.N.D.S. post is a reference to the gang set on a minifigure vignette of what seems to be their apartment. Well, to be frank, a quick search for #legoleaks will give you an idea about what to expect from this upcoming set. And from the get-go of this LEGO teaser, we can assume that the Central Perk set will be joined by another similar set highlighting their living quarters, and is a pretty large set for that matter.
We do not have an official reveal date for these but knowing how LEGO markets its new sets or these new licensed sets, in particular, we can surely expect an official reveal anytime soon. So what do you think the next LEGO Stranger Things is all about, and will this next LEGO F.R.I.E.N.D.S. set be on your LEGO must-have list? Let me know in the comments below.
Following the reveal coming from various 3rd party retailers, we now have more information about what to expect from this year’s wave of LEGO Friends summer 2021 sets. Retailers seem to be on a roll recently with their recent reveals of LEGO’s line of Creator 3-in-1, Ninjago, and Speed Champions summer 2021 sets to name a few. And now thanks to Dutch online retailer Van Der Meulen, we have our look at this year’s batch of LEGO Friends summer 2021 collection.
These are not yet listed over at LEGO Shop@Home as of this posting, and neither Van Der Meulen indicated their respective price points or their corresponding number of pieces. However, the following product images are sufficient in themselves to provide us a better look at what this summer wave has to offer.
From the looks of it, this new series of LEGO Friends sets will continue the Cube subtheme, and will also include forest preservation and fairgrounds subthemes as well. I’ll update this post once LEGO makes them available over at their online shopping portal. Let’s take a look.
Yesterday I reported on a possible LEGO Star Wars tie-in set that celebrates the release of Disney+’s latest animated series inspired by The Clone Wars. And this time around, LEGO Shop@Home was updated to officially include the LEGO Star Wars The Bad Batch Attack Shuttle (75314).
The Clone Force 99’s brick-built Attack Shuttle features adjustable wings, spring-loaded shooters, and a functional cockpit. But what most LEGO Star Wars fans will be thrilled about is the collection of five minifigures that made up the lead characters of the show. The best part? The LEGO Star Wars The Bad Batch Attack Shuttle (75314) is now up for pre-order retailing for $99.99, and will be available for all starting August 1, 2021. Read on for the set’s complete product details, and you may want to click on the following affiliate link if you wish to pre-order this set.
969 pieces | $99.99 | Minifigures include the Bad Batch clones Tech, Echo, Hunter, Wrecker, Crosshair, and a buildable Gonk Droid figure.

The first episode of the Disney+ series, The Bad Batch has already streamed and the reviews are all over the top with the show receiving an average score of 96% over at Rotten Tomatoes, and 9.2 at IMDB. Needless to say, it looks like a very good start for Disney, and for LEGO as well since rumors have it that a LEGO Star Wars: The Bad Batch set is most likely on its way.
German online LEGO retailer JB Spielwaren shared via Instagram an upcoming promotional that may saw the reveal of the said tie-in. Now to be fair, the said Instagram post did not mention a specific LEGO set to be revealed. But another related incident has shown a strong possibility of such kind of a LEGO set reveal. An advertisement released by the German LEGO online store has inadvertently unveiled the LEGO Star Wars Bad Batch Shuttle (75314) set. The image quality itself is not ideal but enough to give us an idea of what to expect from this new tie-in set.
The German advert shows us the Bad Batch Shuttle (75314) design features, including two speeders and a collection of unique and colorful designs of the elite team’s minifigure counterparts: Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, Crosshair, and Echo.
There is no other information regarding this set except for the possibility that it will be around the 99.99 Euro price point. And since JB Spielwaren is about to make a reveal anytime soon, we might have an opportunity of knowing more about this set in the next couple of days.
The Star Wars: The Bad Batch is a direct sequel to the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated series and follows the story of the Clone Force 99 – an elite team of clone troopers with genetic mutations that enable them to take on daring mercenary missions. The show is currently streaming over at Disney+ with new episodes being released on a weekly schedule.
This is a welcomed surprise. Because this next wave of LEGO Creator 3-in-1 summer 2021 offers a nostalgic return to some of our most beloved LEGO themes of all times. Revealed by Netherlands-based toy store Brickshop.eu, take a look at these 5 upcoming sets that take inspiration from the LEGO Space and Castle themes.
LEGO seems intentional in providing more and more LEGO sets that cater not just to the young, budding LEGO fan, but also to those that are looking forward to seeing their childhood favorites come back again. Coming from last year’s pirate-themed LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Pirate Ship (31109), it’s kind of LEGO to continue this direction with this year’s offering of the Medieval Castle (31120). And though these LEGO 3-in-1 summer 2021 sets are intended for children 9 years old and up, I can see the immediate appeal that these sets have to the adult LEGO fan community.
As per Brickshop’s listing, these LEGO Creator 3-in-1 summer 2021 sets are scheduled to be released in June which means that we might see them appearing over at LEGO Shop@Home anytime soon. Let’s take a look at these images and product descriptions. Thanks to Stone Wars for the additional images.

Dutch online retailer Ottosimon updated their listing once again to now include the LEGO Ninjago summer 2021 range of sets that are scheduled to arrive in June. These sets follow the LEGO Ninjago 15th season storyline where the team’s next adventure sends them off on a journey in the depths of the sea, in search of answers for Nya’s mysterious powers.
Since February, it was rumored that these sets will be featuring an underwater adventure theme, complete with new aquatic creatures, and other mythical sea-dwelling beasts. These are all tied into the ninjas’ quest of answering the mysteries surrounding Nya’s uncontrollable powers.
Now that third-party retailers have been listing these sets already, then I guess it’s just a matter of time before they officially find their way over at LEGO Shop@Home.
