LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163) Officially Revealed

LEGO gave us a glimpse of things to come at this year’s Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany, and if you recall from last week, we can expect two sets coming from the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man franchise. And this time around, LEGO Shop@Home has finally unveiled the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163), slated to be released on March 1st.

Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163)

The LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163) comes in at 413 pieces and features Spider-Man, Iron Venom, and Carnage in their minifigure forms. The Iron Venom is the first minifigure of its kind, perhaps as a reference to the Invincible Iron Man #5 comics released in 2017. While this set also features our third Carnage minifigure following 2015’s Carnage’s SHIELD Sky Attack (76036), and last year’s Spider-Man Bike Rescue (76113).

Here’s the official product description for the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163) which will retail for $29.99

LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars The Mandalorian and the Child (75317) Coming in August

This is one LEGO BrickHeadz that will take LEGO Star Wars fandom by storm. Promobricks managed to capture this now-deleted post from Amazon Canada that shows the latter listing a LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars The Mandalorian and the Child (75317) set, together with a glimpse of what to expect from it.

The listing was obviously a bit early since someone from Amazon has to do some damage control. I assume that this set will be officially unveiled sometime during this weekend’s New York Toy Fair, but I guess Amazon got a bit excited so… Well, who wouldn’t especially now that the Child (aka Baby Yoda) now has an official LEGO set just in time to level up the hype for Season 2 of The Mandalorian which will arrive in Disney+ in October. This newest callback to the Star Wars spin-off series is the third set offered under the LEGO Star Wars The Mandalorian subtheme, following the AT-ST Raider (75254) and the Mandalorian Battle Pack (75267).

The LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars The Mandalorian and the Child (75317) comes in at 295 pieces and will likely retail somewhere between 20 or 25 Euro, with a release date of August 1. Check out the product description below.

LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars The Mandalorian and the Child (75317)

Inspire memories of epic Star Wars: The Mandalorian stories with this fun building toy for creative kids, featuring LEGO BrickHeadz versions of The Mandalorian and the Child 75317. Fans will appreciate authentic details such as The Mandalorian’s signature weapons – a blaster rifle and a blaster pistol. The Child has adjustable ears to create happy and sad expressions, and it sits in a hoverpram ‘floating’ on 4 transparent LEGO elements. A great addition to any Star Wars fan’s collection, this awesome construction toy is fun to build solo or with friends and family, and each of the buildable LEGO figures has a baseplate to create an eye-catching display. The LEGO Group has been recreating iconic starships, vehicles, locations and characters from the legendary Star Wars universe since 1999. LEGO Star Wars is now its most successful theme offering a huge variety of gift ideas to delight all ages.

  • Star Wars: The Mandalorian fans and creative kids will love building their own LEGO BrickHeadz versions of the Child and The Mandalorian (75317), recreating authentic details to create a cool display
  • The Mandalorian buildable LEGO figure has signature weapons – a blaster rifle clipped on the back and a blaster pistol in hand – to spark memories of thrilling Star Wars: The Mandalorian scenes
  • Kids will love the Child building toy with adjustable ears for different expressions, and its hoverpram ‘floating’ on a transparent LEGO element, plus both construction models have baseplates for display
  • This 295-piece LEGO BrickHeadz Star Wars building toy makes an awesome birthday present, holiday gift or anytime surprise for Star Wars: The Mandalorian fans and LEGO builders ages 10+
  • The Mandalorian measures 3” (8cm) tall and the Child and hoverpram building toy measures 3” (8cm) high – they won’t take up too much space but are sure to make a big impression wherever they are displayed

LEGO Night Mode Light Kits Might Actually Happen

It looks like the LEGO Group is trying to test the waters with this one. The LEGO World in Copenhagen has officially kicked off, and LEGO took this opportunity to soft launch what seems to be its first attempt to offer lighting accessories to some of its premium sets. The LEGO Night Mode Light Kits were unveiled, with initial five kits that are tailored for specific sets.

According to a report from Brickset, these light kits were put on display at the LEGO Store in that location, with some sets being shown with these light accessories such as the LEGO Creator Expert Ford Mustang (10265). However, it seems that they are not actually for sale yet and those that were displayed are just empty boxes as of this moment. It’s like a test run spearheaded by the LEGO Lead User Lab where LEGO engages with the LEGO fan community to gauge how feasible and appealing this future brick innovation might be.

LEGO Night Mode
The LEGO Night Mode Light Kits will feature some fair amount of electronics as seen at the back of this proposed box art. Image courtesy of Brickset.

So consider this as a sort of marketing and research exercise on how LEGO fans might react to it. Though the expected pricing is a bit steep, if there is a clear demand, then we might see the LEGO Night Mode Light Kits retail for as much as $200 that will match large and medium-sized sets such as the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle (71043), LEGO Ideas Tree House (21318), LEGO Creator Expert Ford Mustang (10265), and LEGO Friends Andrea’s Pool Party (41374). Given such prices, and if the costing will be the same, then if you’re looking forward to having the Hogwarts Castle for example with all the perks of the LEGO Night Mode has to offer, then you have to be ready to break the bank to the tune of 600 bucks.

Truth be told, there are already a handful of third-party lighting kits that are made available via Amazon, and they are way below the $200 price point that the LEGO Night Mode Light Kits seem to suggest. So it can be said that the market for this kind of LEGO accessories is pretty much in place already, and LEGO has to think outside of the box to make this offering more functional and feature-rich. The only advantage that I see right here is that since it is made directly by LEGO, then we can be assured that it will perfectly fit any of their existing or currently offered sets.

In any case, I’m sure that most LEGO fans will welcome this move, only if the LEGO Group will reconsider its pricing.

LEGO Ideas 2019 Second Review Stage Results Are In: Two New Sets Coming

The LEGO Ideas Review Team has turned in the results of their LEGO Ideas 2019 Second Review Stage, and it seems that we are not getting just one but two new LEGO Ideas sets in the near future. Check out the announcement made by LEGO Ideas Engagement Manager, Hasan Jensen, and LEGO Ideas Design Manager, Samuel Johnson via Facebook live at 4PM CET.

Though I was a bit far-off from my predictions of what these next LEGO Ideas sets will be, I’m glad to see that the Medieval Blacksmith product idea by LEGO fan designer Clemens Fiedler (aka Namirob) was eventually chosen to become an official LEGO set. I like the direction where LEGO seems to be going with their selections within the LEGO Ideas platform. Though it may not be a medieval castle in itself, the LEGO Ideas Medieval Blacksmith set is a shout out to LEGO’s classic Castle theme that many adult fans are longing to be revived. And with the upcoming LEGO Ideas The Pirate Bay now in the works, we can see how these sets can evoke a certain feeling of nostalgia among AFOLs. Plus, the design on this set clearly demonstrates the superb building skill of its fan designer – the building style (the roof and chimney are absolutely gorgeous), choice of colors, landscape, and interior details all combine to bring out one display-worthy set.

LEGO Ideas 2019 Second Review Stage

This one caught me by surprise, though it was in a way expected given the longstanding partnership between LEGO and Disney. Winnie the Pooh by Ben Alder (aka benlouisa) is the next upcoming LEGO Ideas set that we can expect sometime next year.  A.A. Milne’s classic children’s story, now immortalized by Disney, is finally getting an official LEGO set complete with all the characters that we learned to love since our childhood days. The set includes the 100 Acre Wood, the place that served as a home for Winnie the Pooh together with his friends, Piglet, Tigger, Rabbit, Eeyore, and the ‘wise’ Owl. What makes the LEGO Ideas Winnie the Pooh set exciting is the possibility of having new minifigure characters, molds and pieces that will render them as close to how they look like in the Disney animated film.

LEGO Ideas 2019 Second Review Stage

Unfortunately, the LEGO Ideas Review Team ultimately decided to forego Stephanix’s Anatomini project. The reasons were not specifically stated, except for the fact that it may not have met LEGO’s standards with regards to “playability, safety and fit with the LEGO brand”.

With the announcement of the LEGO Ideas 2019 Second Review Stage results now out of the way, we can now expect the Third Review Stage to wrap up in summer as well. These twelve product ideas manage to gather the needed 10,000 fan support or votes from September 2019 to January of this year. It’s exciting to see what the outcome will be on this one, especially considering the licensing issues that the review team needs to hurdle for some of these projects.

And with the approval of the LEGO Ideas Medieval Blacksmith and LEGO Ideas Winnie the Pooh, we can now expect five LEGO Ideas sets to appear in store shelves very soon including my personal favorite the LEGO Ideas Sesame Street, the LEGO Ideas The Pirate Bay, and the LEGO Ideas Playable Piano.

Rumored LEGO DC Comics Superheroes Sets for 2020

More rumors are coming out from the leaking faucet. After the news came out regarding what to expect from the next 2020 wave of LEGO Marvel Superheroes sets, we now have additional info about the next series of LEGO DC Comics Superheroes sets coming this second half of 2020 courtesy of Promobricks.

LEGO DC Wonder Woman 1984

Similar to what LEGO did with DCEU’s Wonder Woman in 2017’s Wonder Woman Warrior Battle (76075), the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984 sequel will also be receiving the LEGO treatment. We have no information as to date regarding its exact set name but for the time being, lets refer to it as Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157). It features a large satellite dish with minifigure versions of Wonder Woman and Cheetah. This set is slated to be released in June, just in time for its tie-up film landing on theaters on June 5, 2020.

LEGO Batman

As it turns out, we can expect three new LEGO Batman sets to arrive also in June, one of which is labeled as ‘4+’. The smallest in the set, which is also the one tagged as for 4+ kids, is the Penguin Pursuit (76158). It features a Penguin minifigure and a small brick-built duck which we assume as the titular villain’s vehicle. It also includes a Bat Boat with a Batman minifigure. Based on its description, it somehow thematically resembles that of the LEGO Batman: The Penguin Face Off (76010) from 2014 save for the Bat Submarine.

The LEGO Batman Penguin Faceoff (76010) from 2014 features a brick built duck that may reappear in an upcoming LEGO Batman set. 

We also have another mid-sized set which is called Joker’s Trike Chase (76159) that features a trike with a grotesque grin which obviously the vehicle of choice for Joker. It also includes a Batman minifigure together with his Batmobile. Other minifigures include Harley Quinn with her oversized, black and red hammer, and Robin.

The last set in this series and what seems to be the largest, is the Mobile Bat Base (76160). Retailing for 89.99 Euro, it includes the minifigures of Batman, Batgirl, Nightwing (red, New 52 version), Mr. Freeze, Bronze Tiger, and Man Bat. From what it seems, the Mobile Bat Base also features several interlocking vehicles.

Man-Bat and Nightwing appear here in the LEGO Batman Man-Bat Attack (76011) from 2014. We might see these minifigs once again in the tentatively named Mobile Bat Base (76160).

Here’s a brief rundown of all the LEGO DC Comics Superheroes that we know will be arriving in June. Please take note that the set names mentioned above are just based on the set’s initial descriptions and may still change once LEGO makes their official reveal.

  • LEGO DC Comics Wonder Woman vs Cheetah (76157)€39.99 | June 2020 release date
  • LEGO Batman Penguin Pursuit 4+ (76158)€9.99 | June 2020 release date
  • LEGO Batman Joker’s Trike Chase (76159)€49.99 | June 2020 release date
  • LEGO Batman Mobile Bat-Base (76160)€89.99 | June 2020 release date

More 2020 LEGO Marvel Superheroes Sets Rumored to Arrive This Year

We caught a glimpse of things to come for LEGO’s licensed sets during the recently concluded Nuremberg Toy Fair. And for those of you who were following this news, it was pretty obvious that LEGO is putting a tight lid on some of these licensed sets until such time their respective embargos are lifted. However, news along the grapevine suggests that there is still more to expect from LEGO’s licensed themes, particularly from its 2020 LEGO Marvel Superheroes.

LEGO Marvel Eternals

According to a report from Promobricks, we can still expect a handful of LEGO Marvel sets that are based on new subthemes or titles. We already know that a LEGO Marvel Black Widow’s Helicopter Chase (76162) is coming out in March as a tie-in set for the upcoming Black Widow spin-off MCU film, and for the second half of 2020, we will also be seeing another round of MCU-inspired sets in the form of the LEGO Marvel Eternals sets. Specifically, we can expect four (4) sets for this subtheme somewhat similar to how LEGO released tie-in sets for the Spider-Man: Far From Home film. As of now, we only know of the price of the small set, 76145, under this Marvel subtheme which is expected to retail for 9.99 Euro. We’re looking for a release date sometime in October, or earlier during the second half of this year, just in time for the marketing campaign for the film which will land in theaters in November.

2020 LEGO Marvel
MCU’s Eternals will also get the LEGO treatment, with four LEGO Marvel sets slated to be released.
LEGO Marvel Spider-Man

Other than the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163) whose images were recently found in LEGO servers, only to be removed afterward, we can look forward to another LEGO Spidey set to follow soon. A LEGO Marvel Spider-Man vs Venom (76151) is also expected to arrive, focusing more on the web crawler’s titular symbiote nemesis. This development is exciting at many levels because other than putting the spotlight on Venom as a LEGO set, it further confirms the eventual cinematic crossover of MCU’s Spider-Man to that of Sony’s version of Venom. The LEGO Marvel Spider-Man vs Venom (76151) set is described to feature a large brick-built black mech lizard and a smaller vehicle with shooters. The black mech lizard is obviously the centerpiece of this set akin to the Venom Crawler. However, fans will be excited to know that other than the Spider-Man, Venom, and Iron-Spider minifigures included in this set, this will be our first-ever set to feature a Spider-Ham minifigure. That certainly is interesting.

2020 LEGO Marvel
The LEGO Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163) is slated to arrive this March.
LEGO Marvel Avengers

Loki is returning to the LEGO limelight with a new set dedicated to the mischievous Norse god. The LEGO Marvel Wrath of Loki (76152) is expected to be a substantially large 4+ set that features an Avenger Tower, a small Quinjet, and a green aircraft for Loki and five minifigures: Loki, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, and Captain Marvel.

S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Helicarrier will also be returning in LEGO form this 2020, though in a smaller version. Tagged as set 76153, it is expected to retail for 120 Euros, significantly smaller to that of 2015’s The SHIELD Hellicarrier (76042) which retailed for $350. However, this newer version of the Hellicarrier packs a lot of minifigs, including Iron Man, Thor, Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Nick Fury, War Machine and a SHIELD Agent. War Machne is said to have a new shoulder cannon, while another Marvel villain will be coming back in LEGO form – MODOK will be returning in this set, though not in minifigure form as we first saw him in Avengers: Hulk Lab Smash (76018) back in 2014. This newer version of MODOK will be brick-built so its kind of interesting how this will turn out. This newer SHIELD Hellicarrier (76153) will come in a gray and blue color scheme, plus a blue-yellow Quinjet that can land on the Hellicarrier itself.

The LEGO Marvel Avengers: Hulk Lab Smash (76018) from 2014 features MODOK’s first-ever LEGO debut.

Other than these two sets, we can also expect three additional Avengers-inspired sets such: a new Hulkbuster (76164) which includes minifigures of Iron Rescue, and two SHIELD Agents; the previously reported Iron Man Bust (76165), and a new and larger Avengers Tower (76165) featuring seven new minifigs: Red Skull, Iron Man, Black Widow, two SHIELD Agents, and two undisclosed villains or superheroes.

To sum it up here’s what we know so far about these 2020 LEGO Marvel Superheroes sets slated to arrive this year.

  • LEGO Marvel Eternals (76145)€9.99 | October 2020 release date 
  • LEGO Marvel Eternals (76154)€19.99 | October 2020 release date
  • LEGO Marvel Eternals (76155)€59.99 | October 2020 release date
  • LEGO Marvel Eternals (76156)€99.99 | October 2020 release date
  • LEGO Spider-Man: Spider-Man vs Venom (76151)€??.?? | ???? release date
  • LEGO Marvel Wrath of Loki 4+ (76152)€59.99 | June 2020 release date
  • LEGO Marvel Hellicarrier (76153)€119.99 | June 2020 release date

  • LEGO Marvel Iron Man Bust (76165)€59.99 | August 2020 release date
  • LEGO Marvel Avengers Tower (76166)€89.99 | August 2020 release date

Other officially released LEGO Marvel set includes:

LEGO Marvel Black Widow’s Helicopter Chase (76162)271 pieces | €29.99 | March 2020 release date

LEGO Spider-Man Venom Crawler (76163)413 pieces | €39.99 | March 2020 release date

LEGO Star Wars UCS Republic Gunship Arriving Soon

A few weeks ago, LEGO Ideas launched a voting campaign to hear what LEGO Star Wars fans have to say about what they want to see as the next Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) set. There were three choices to consider and now that the votes are finally in, it looks like we will be getting a LEGO Star Wars UCS Republic Gunship anytime soon.

UCS Republic Gunship

The announcement was made over at the LEGO Ideas blogsite, where the iconic transport from the Star Wars prequels (Attack of the Clones) emerged as the top choice of more than half of those who voted. Following the Republic Gunship is the Nebulon B Escort Frigate, and the TIE Bomber.

Truth be told, I was expecting the Nebulon B to come up on top since this is a UCS set intended to be displayed with all its intricate details. Furthermore, we haven’t seen this frigate before in LEGO form so it will be nice to have a unique LEGO Star Wars set that wasn’t rehashed before. Nevertheless, since more than half of the votes were in favor of the Republic Gunship, then I guess that proves it to be more popular and appealing.

UCS Republic Gunship
The LEGO Star Wars Republic Gunship (75021) from 2013 is currently the largest LEGO tie-in version of this ship with over 1,100 pieces. A UCS version is expected to be significantly larger. 

Obviously there are no details yet on when this LEGO Star Wars UCS Republic Gunship will be arriving. My best guess is that we’re looking at either a January or May 2021 release date for that matter. As an extra surprise, those who participated in the voting process also has the chance of winning a free UCS Republic Gunship once it is released, together with a LEGO Star Wars Yoda (75255) set. Three winners will be randomly selected and will be contacted via email.

So what do you think of the upcoming LEGO Star Wars UCS Republic Gunship? Will you be looking forward to this? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

LEGO Jurassic World Summer 2020 Sets To Watch Out For

As the Nuremberg Toy Fair comes to a close, the LEGO Booth at the International Toy Fair has a few more sets to reveal. Visitors and dealers were allowed to have a sneak peek of four of the LEGO Jurassic World summer 2020 sets. Promobricks continues its coverage of the events going on at the floor of the toy fair venue. With the LEGO Harry Potter theme getting another wave of sets, LEGO is also adding more sets to its LEGO Jurassic World portfolio.

There are four sets to be expected from the summer 2020 wave of LEGO Jurassic World as reported by Promobricks, with lots of dinosaurs to go around. Please take note that the following set names are just tentative based on how toy fair visitors describe them. It may not be considered final until such time that LEGO makes an official reveal. Furthermore, these sets are inspired by the LEGO Jurassic World animated series.

LEGO Jurassic World Dr. Wu’s Laboratory (75939)

Price: €19.99 | Minifigures: 2

At 20 Euro, this set is the smallest among this wave. It features a rendering of Dr. Henry Wu’s laboratory where he breeds different kinds of dinosaurs. What fans might be interested to know is that this set also comes with new baby ankylosaurus and triceratops dino figures. There is also an Owen Grady minifigure thrown to add to that of Dr. Wu.

LEGO Jurassic World Hunt for the Gallimimus and Pteranodon (75940)

Price: €59.99 | Minifigures: 3

The LEGO Jurassic World Pteranodon Chase (75926) features a net shooter, which will also be featured in this next wave of sets.

This set features, not one, but two dino bigfigs which collectors might find interesting: a Pteranodon and a larger Gallimimus. It also comes with brick-built drones, and a vehicle equipped with a net shooter similar to how the LEGO Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Pteranodon Chase (75926), perhaps larger.  Minifigures include Owen Grady, Claire, and a park employee.

LEGO Jurassic World House of Gyrospheres (75941)

Price: €99.99 | Minifigures: 5

The LEGO Jurassic World gyrosphere, such as seen in this Indominus Rex Breakout (75919) set, is quite ubiquitous to the theme. It will also be added again in one of the upcoming LEGO Jurassic World summer 2020 sets.

This set features a small house that serves as a launchpad for a gyrosphere. This gyrosphere is similar to what can be found in the LEGO Jurassic World Dilophosaurus Ambush (75916), Indominus Rex Breakout (75919), and Carnotaurus Gyrosphere Escape (75929). This new set also features two large dino bigfigs: an Indominus Rex and an Ankylosaurus. Minifigures include Owen, Claire, Gray, Zach, and a park employee.

LEGO Jurassic World Land and Water Hunting (75942)

Price: €29.99 | Minifigures: 2

Apparently, this is the 4+ set under this theme. It features two vehicles, namely a yellow seaplane, a quad bike, and two dinosaur figures – a Velociraptor and it’s baby counterpart.

 

These  LEGO Jurassic World summer 2020 sets are expected to arrive in stores in July 2020. In case LEGO makes an official reveal, then be sure to keep tabs with us here in our Brick Show blogsite.

LEGO Harry Potter Summer 2020 Sets at the Nuremberg Toy Fair

Promobricks is on the floor of the Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany, and it seems that LEGO still has something up its sleeves even at the last of the International Toy Fair. As it turns out, there have been some adjustments at the LEGO Booth where several LEGO Harry Potter Summer 2020 sets have been put on display. Unfortunately, media representatives were not given the opportunity to see these sets first hand. But this did not prevent our friends to gather some info on what these new LEGO Harry Potter sets are all about.

As a word of caution, please bear in mind that these descriptions are based on non-media sources that managed to glimpse over those sets. So in this case, nothing is final until LEGO gives its official word. Here is the list of these set names, expected retail price and the minifigures included with them.

LEGO Harry Potter Room of Requirement (75966)
The Room of Requirement from The Goblet of Fire. 

Price: 19.99 Euro | Minifigures: Harry Potter,  Hermione Granger (with her Otter Patronus), Luna Lovegood (with Hare Patronus)

LEGO Harry Potter Forbidden Forest (75967)
The centaurs that inhabit the Forbidden Forest from Harry Potter Order of the Phoenix.

Price: 29.99 Euro | Minifigures: Harry Potter,  Hermione Granger, Dolores Umbridge, Two Centaurs (features a new horse base and torso, probably similar to the new mini leg part used for the minifig character of Hickory in LEGO Trolls World Tour Lonesome Flats Raft Adventure 41253). It also features a buildable Grawp, the giant and maternal half-brother of Hagrid.

LEGO Harry Potter Escape from Privet Drive (75968)
The LEGO Harry Potter Escape from Privet Drive (4728) set will have a re-release for 2020.

Price: 69.99 Euro | Minifigures: Harry Potter,  Ron Weasley, Dobby, Vernon Dursley, Petunia Dursley, and Dudley Dursley. This set is practically a re-release of set 4728 from 2002,0 now with the inclusion of the first-ever Petunia and Dudley minifigures.

LEGO Harry Potter Astronomy Tower (75969)
The Astronomy Tower scene from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. 

Price: 99.99 Euro | Minifigures: Harry Potter,  Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Draco Malfoy, Luna Lovegood, Neville Longbottom, Horace Slughorn, and Lavender Brown.

Perhaps the highlight and the largest set in this new wave of LEGO Harry Potter sets, this one will include a second minifig rendition of Horace Slughhorn since he was introduced in 2018’s Bricktober LEGO Harry Potter Minifigure Collection (5005254). Lavender Brown’s entry as a minifigure is also a recent addition in LEGO Harry Potter sets.

LEGO  Harry Potter Buildable Hedwig (75979)
Image credit via Reddit.

Price: 39.99 Euro. This is the first time that LEGO will be offering a solely buildable figure set under the Harry Potter theme. If you recall, a similar set was offered by Target in 2018 as a sweepstakes prize for their 20th Anniversary Potter Event. However, unlike that of the buildable BB-8 (75187) and Yoda (75255), this buildable Hedwig from Harry Potter was not offered for retail. I just hope that at 39.99 Euro, this will somehow be close to what Target has offered to the winner back then.

LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar 2020 (75981)
The LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar (75964) from last year. LEGO is continuing the tradition of releasing these sets, with the next LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar slated to be released in the last quarter of 2020. 

It is not surprising that LEGO will continue the tradition of its Advent Calendars. However, what fans of these offerings may find a bit of a let-down is the apparent price increase of this set. From the previous price of 24.99 Euro, it is now expected to retail for 29.99 Euro instead.

LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures Series 2 (71028)
Another series of LEGO Harry Potter Collectible Minifigures will arrive this September following 2018’s Series 1 (71022).
