First Look at LEGO Seasonal Year of the Tiger (40491)

Even as Black Friday-Cyber Monday goes through this past Friday to this Monday, LEGO’s continually laying out the future. We’ve gotten glimpses of what to expect from them early next year. Speaking of early next year that time’s also when a certain season gets its seasonal LEGO set or several. Earlier this November LEGO put up its upcoming Lunar New Year sets. One is missing however: the Chinese Zodiac Animal set. The year 2022 will be the Year of the Tiger. While a product listing isn’t there yet, we do have images courtesy of Promobricks.de.

Now we know that a LEGO Year of the Tiger (40491) Lunar New Year seasonal set is headed our way. The rather blurry image we have is courtesy of a Declaration of Conformity for Toy Safety Regulations 2011. We can check it out on LEGO’s servers here. Other than the blurry photo we have no other info on Year of the Tiger (40491). If it’s anything like this 2021’s Year of the Ox (40417), look forward to it being GWP per over-$85 purchase. We can expect LEGO to officially reveal this seasonal set soon, ahead of Lunar New Year next year. That’s February 1, 2022.

New Disney Princess Bundle (5007204) Available at LEGO.com UK

Want to get a head start on collecting LEGO sets but can’t be bothered to hunt them down individually? You could always keep an eye out for the bundles. LEGO and its retail partners tend to release them every once in a while. Just last month, Walmart gave us three LEGO Marvel “Mech Armor” sets in an affordable 3-in-1 Pack (66671). The arctic base LEGO City sets from a few years ago also got bundled courtesy of LEGO.com UK in 2018. It’s their corner of the LEGO online store that brings us this new collection of sets from LEGO Disney.

Brick Fanatics tells us that LEGO.com for UK now lists a Disney Princess Ultimate Celebration Bundle (5007204). Sounds cool for a Disney fan, huh? Then again, the bundle consists of just one LEGO Disney Princess set. The other sets are from the LEGO DOTS theme, plus two Disney key-chains and two early 2021 VIP rewards. Consider this list of contents:

All these could be had from LEGO UK at £74.99/€84.99. Adding the individual prices of the above gives us the total £92.93/€103.93, so the bundle price is a good deal. The LEGO Disney Princess Ultimate Celebration Bundle (5007204) is available now, ahead of Black Friday. If you’re in the UK and fancy these items then it’s best to get the bundle now. Getting two VIP rewards is a nice bonus.

LEGO Unveils Star Wars Sets Coming January 2022

The penultimate month of the year would be an appropriate time to reveal the earliest new stuff for next year. LEGO is an old hand with this, blitzing January 1 set releases during November at the earliest. Yesterday we got a good look at some of the upcoming products for the Marvel corner of LEGO. Now we take a look at the LEGO Star Wars batch, or some of them at least. These reveals officially confirm some of the rumors we’ve shared here on The Brick Show. LEGO Star Wars is really hyping the Battle of Hoth from “The Empire Strikes Back.” Just look at these two new upcoming sets.

If you’ve already gotten (or made plans for) the UCS AT-AT (75313), then get these too. One is a vehicle to complement the big four-legged walker. The other adds more ground troops to the Galactic Empire’s assault force on the Rebel Alliance’s Echo Base. You’ve got it: a LEGO Star Wars Battle Pack after quite a while. And it’s not like the Rebels are underrepresented either. Luke Skywalker’s fighting the AT-AT while Chewbacca and a Hoth Rebel take on this new chicken-legged walker. Here they are, as covered by Brickset:

Like the LEGO Marvel stuff we covered yesterday, these ones come out on January 2022.

First 2022 LEGO Marvel Sets Revealed

Not all LEGO rumors turn out exactly as they’re first leaked out. Either the speculation gives some vague description in lieu of names, or the given names turn out wrong. The latter happened with the Creator Expert Pickup Truck (10290), earlier rumored as the “Back to the Future” DeLorean. The former scenario just played out with certain LEGO Marvel rumors we first covered back in September. As you can check back in our article, they were just “Marvel Classic” sets. Well, LEGO officially listed these products online. It turns out three of these items are new Marvel Mech Armor sets.

Check out these new LEGO Marvel Mech Armors coming our way on January 1, 2022:

First Look: LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker’s Lightsaber (40483) GWP

We just got through with featuring LEGO’s official reveal of the Star Wars UCS AT-AT (75313). Such an epic set usually comes with a bonus, as has been the fashion with big releases from LEGO lately. And indeed, when LEGO announced Star Wars UCS 75313 this past November 9, it was accompanied by a teaser image. Said image is definitely the next LEGO Star Wars GWP. Despite just being one picture, it’s enough of a clue as to what to expect. After all, a similar item was the GWP with the sprawling Mos Eisley Cantina set (75290) from last year.

Brickset gives us this one good look at LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker’s Lightsaber (40483). Although not outright specified when revealed, this is most likely a Gift with Purchase set. It looks like the Yoda’s Lightsaber (6346098) GWP that came out with Mos Eisley Cantina (75290) in 2020. About the only other place mentioning Luke’s Lightsaber set is the Customer Service – Building Instructions page on LEGO.com. Even then, its entry only has the above photo and release year, which isn’t much.

Interestingly, one of the earlier UC AT-AT-related rumors mentioned a GWP set numbered 40484. The rumor alleges it to be a micro Star Destroyer. Whether it was a mistake, or if a 40484 will follow Luke’s Lightsaber (40483), we’ll just have to wait. LEGO must spill the details eventually.

At Last, LEGO Star Wars UCS AT-AT (75313) Revealed

Advance knowledge of upcoming LEGO sets can be a double-edged sword. On the plus side, you can start saving up early if it’s a set you want. On the minus side, the waiting gets really tedious. Furthermore, the transition from rumor, to possible leak prior to an official LEGO reveal, could make or break anticipation. That goes double for major releases like a new LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series (UCS). Word of a UCS Imperial AT-AT Walker (75313) has been one of the biggest buzzes over the past weeks. Following a leaked reveal date, we now have final confirmation.

 

The Brick Fan happily reports that LEGO announced, at last the LEGO Star Wars UCS AT-AT (75313). This build is near double the height of the 2020-released AT-AT (75288). We can expect nothing less from an Ultimate Collector Series release. Now let us bask in the glory of this set before its official launch date:

UCS AT-AT (75313)

6,785 pieces | 9 minifigures | $799.99 | age 18+ | coming November 26, 2022

This is the AT-AT (75313) that every LEGO® Star Wars™ fan has been waiting for. This epic Ultimate Collector Series build-and-display model features posable legs and head, cannons with a realistic recoil action, rotating cannons, bomb-drop hatch and a hook to attach to Luke Skywalker’s line, just like in the Battle of Hoth.

Room for an Imperial army

The AT-AT measures over 24.5 in. (62 cm) high and is easily opened to view the detailed interior. The main body has space for 40 LEGO minifigures (General Veers and Luke Skywalker are among 9 in this set), 4 speeder bikes (2 included) and the included E-Web heavy repeating blaster. The head/cockpit seats 2 LEGO minifigures and has space for 1 more. An information plaque completes a magnificent display piece.

 

  • Build and display the first-ever LEGO® Star Wars™ Ultimate Collector Series version of an AT-AT (75313) from the Battle of Hoth in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
  • Includes 9 LEGO® Star Wars™ minifigures – General Veers, Luke Skywalker, Snowtrooper Commander, 4 Snowtroopers and 2 AT-AT Drivers – plus an information plaque to complete a stunning centerpiece.
  • This epic, buildable model features posable legs and head, opening hatches, cannons with a realistic recoil action, rotating cannons, bomb-drop hatch, and a hook to attach to Luke Skywalker’s line.
  • The AT-AT has panels that lift-off to reveal the interior. The main body has space for up to 40 LEGO® minifigures, 4 speeder bikes (2 included) and the included E-Web heavy repeating blaster.

Enjoy grabbing this baby come Black Friday 2022. It’ll even come with a neat new GWP item, as you’ll read about next.

First Look: 2022 Seasonal LEGO Chinese New Year Sets

And now we come to our last item as shown by LEGO in the 4th China International Import Expo. We got reveals for an original LEGO theme and more for a licensed IP. But consider “when” we are now in the calendar. Most of the upcoming set reveals at present will launch early next year. That places them roughly in the timeframe before the celebration of Chinese New Year. The fact that the reveals were made in a Chinese import expo only becomes more appropriate. It makes perfect sense for LEGO’s newest Chinese New Year seasonal sets to appear there.

Brickset gives us the lowdown on not one, but two LEGO Chinese New Year 2022 sets. Preceding sets in this seasonal line went to the hilt in terms of intricate Chinese decorative design. The upcoming ones are beautiful successors to the series, as you’ll definitely agree based on these images:

Lunar New Year Traditions (80108)

Lunar New Year Ice Festival (80109)

Expect these seasonal LEGO Chinese New Year sets to arrive in the Asia-Pacific Region on Christmas, December 25. The rest of the world must wait until January 1, 2022.

New LEGO Monkie Kid Stuff: Galactic Explorer (80035) and New Content on Apple Arcade’s “LEGO Brawls”

For fans of LEGO action themes wanting more variety outside Ninjago, Monkie Kid was a breath of fresh air. A fantasy-futuristic take on the “Journey to the West” isn’t new; anime fans have “Dragon Ball” for starters. But a fantasy-futuristic “Journey to the West” rendered in LEGO and animated in 2D? LEGO had a winning recipe with this. Both the sets and the animated series generated massive hype, as had the announcement that the theme will continue. As affirmation of this, LEGO showed a new Monkie Kid set at the Chinese International Import Expo. Some videogame content was revealed elsewhere.

First, let’s have a peek at the new upcoming LEGO Monkie Kid set. It’s called the Galactic Explorer (80035), and is the most openly sci-fi set of the franchise yet. We get a space rocket in distinct LEGO Monkie Kid aesthetics. As for minifigs, Monkie Kid looks to be teamed with Mei, Tang, Sandy, and his cat Mo. They appear to be fighting the Monkey King’s rival, Macaque, who has used his cloning magic (explaining “two” Macaques). We’re not sure yet if this set ties into the planned third season of the “Monkie Kid” series.

Meanwhile, Brick Fanatics has it that Apple Arcade’s “LEGO Brawls” is getting some Monkie Kid content. As can be seen in the trailer above, not only do MK and his friends join the roster. The platform-fighter mobile game developed by Red Games Co. will also be getting a new stage: Flower Fruit Mountain. “LEGO Brawls” gives a gorgeous adaptation of the LEGO Monkie Kid set (80024). The LMK stuff is now available on that title, playable on Apple Arcade with a monthly subscription. LEGO Monkie Kid is, indeed, continuing strongly.

More Upcoming LEGO Super Mario Sets Revealed

When this month began, LEGO gave their first look at the newest sets for LEGO Super Mario. Said sets, earmarked for 2022 release, tie into the Nintendo GameCube title “Luigi’s Mansion.” As it turns out however, the three revealed were just part of a larger batch. What we probably didn’t expect is the venue for LEGO’s reveal of the rest. The grand unveiling took place in China’s 4th International Import Expo, alongside other LEGO set announcements. Here however, we’ll focus on what else we can expect for LEGO Super Mario, possibly on January 2022 too.

Courtesy of The Brick Fan, let’s have a look at these other upcoming LEGO Super Mario set releases. LEGO put up images on their official page at Chinese micro-blogging site Weibo, the link for which TBF provided. They’re quite the impressive ensemble, so here they are with set names translated.

The first three are Expansion Sets:

  • Bowser Jr.’s Clown Car (71396)

  • Dorrie’s Beachfront (71398)

  • Big Urchin Beach Ride (71400)

The fourth is a character pack introducing more “Super Mario” game franchise characters:

  • LEGO Super Mario Character Packs – Series 4 (71402)

As we mentioned, they’re probably releasing New Year’s Day 2022 alongside the “Luigi’s Mansion” sets.
