LEGO BrickHeadz Jabba the Hut and Salacious Crumb (75232) Rumored for 2020

The LEGO BrickHeadz theme had its share of ups and downs since its debut three years ago, and it looks like it’s on its way for another comeback in 2020. Thanks to the eagle-eyed scouts of Star Wars fan site Rebelscum, we are now convinced that a LEGO BrickHeadz Jabba the Hut and Salacious Crumb (75232) set is now on its way.

Jabba the hut 1

Rebelscum gathered the pieces of evidence to see if they point to this possibility, starting with third-party retailer Amazon France. Now it can be argued that this particular listing does not really say or hint anything about the famed Hutt crime lord coming to the LEGO BrickHeadz theme. However, a closer look at the set’s piece count (coming in at 240 pieces) and box dimensions (19.1 x 14.1 x 7.1 cm) suggest that this upcoming LEGO BrickHeadz set will be a dual pack, similar to what LEGO released in the past. Prominent twin-packs in the Star Wars subtheme of the LEGO BrickHeadz line include the Boba Fett and Han Solo in Carbonite (41498) set released as an SDCC 2017 exclusive, and the Luke Skywalker and Yoda (41627) released last year.

Salacious Crumb 1

And on what could be the most convincing piece of evidence that suggests that a LEGO BrickHeadz Jabba the Hut and Salacious Crumb (75232) set is happening is from the theme’s lead LEGO designer himself, Marcos Bessa. In an interview at the LEGO Innovation House in May last year, Marcos made mention of  “a certain lizard creature-ish bad guy” was in the works at that time. Eventually, challenges on how to re-create its “weird form” which is quite the “opposite of the proportions of what the Brickheadz are,” have now been hurdled. I know this slight reveal is unintentional on the part of Marcos, but considering the specific details that he gave back then, I couldn’t help but think of Jabba as the most likely candidate.

Jabba and Salacious Crumb 1

Whatever is the case the LEGO BrickHeadz theme is still holding on, and with more licensed names poised to be included in its ever-growing line, I wouldn’t mind if a LEGO BrickHeadz Jabba the Hut and Salacious Crumb (75232) set will be added to the mix. For the meantime, be sure the check out the rest of the LEGO BrickHeadz currently available at LEGO Shop@Home.

Official Images of the LEGO Forma (81000) Set Appears In LEGO Servers

If you recall back in September of last year, LEGO experimented on a crowd-sourcing model in promoting its sets, particularly with the relatively new LEGO Forma theme. Aimed at adult fans of LEGO, the LEGO Forma theme is focused on building and creative expression via art in a more unstructured way. The sets’ most notable features include interchangeable skins, particularly among the three Koi Fish variants featured in the LEGO Forma theme. With regards to its build, they all follow a common design and certain play features.

LEGO Forma

Launched via the Indiegogo platform, it was not quite sure afterward if the LEGO Forma sets will be made available through more conventional means such as via LEGO Shop@Home or at LEGO brand stores. However, something delightfully curious happened today – a rare opportunity for those who may have missed these sets during their launch.

The front side box art of the LEGO Forma (81000) set.
A look at the back side box art of the LEGO Forma (81000). It’s relatively simple and minimalist in design.

LEGO servers have been now updated to include official images of the first of the LEGO Forma sets, leading us to speculate that this theme may eventually find their way at LEGO’s online store portal. The sets themselves are not yet listed so we only have these images to look at. The LEGO Forma (81000) base set comes in at 293 pieces, with a buildable base that also acts as a tactile mechanism for the koi fish build to mechanically move. It also features an interchangeable skin that can be swapped with two other koi skin variants which as of this posting, are yet to appear on LEGO’s servers. I expect this to sell for around $50 USD, but the price could be lower.

Now I am kind of compelled to speculate that this may be part of LEGO’s future promotional sets. However, I feel that this may not be the case since it will be kind of a let-down for those who already purchased the set last year if LEGO will opt to move forward to this direction. Additionally, LEGO was testing the waters back then with regards to this marketing model, so the goal at that time was to see if this is a viable way of promoting future LEGO sets which it did actually.

Whatever is the case, I’m sure that a particular group of LEGO fans will be excited to see these LEGO Forma sets accessible to everyone. Be sure to keep tabs with us for more updates about these recent developments.

LEGO Marvel Avengers Hulk Helicopter Drop (76144) Revealed

After the reveal of this year’s LEGO SDCC exclusives: Captain Marvel and the Asis (77902) and The Dark Knight of Gotham City (77903), the LEGO Group has revealed another set that will grace their booth at San Diego Comic Con 2019 starting July 18. The LEGO Marvel Avengers Hulk Helicopter Drop (76144) comes as an addition to the roster of LEGO Marvel Endgame sets which are now currently available in LEGO Stores and online.

Avengers Hulk Helicopter Drop (76144)

As initially announced by Gizmodo, the set comes in at 482 pieces and will include two Chitauri minifigures, Black Widow in her time heist suit, and an Infinity Gauntlet-wielding Professor Hulk, and Pepper Potts in her Rescue armor. The central build of this set is the Avengers Helicopter, which to be quite honest and nitpicking does not fit in that entire Endgame scene. But perhaps the biggest question is, as Gizmodo pointed out, is LEGO’s call of including Nat in this particular set considering that Bruce Banner already has the Infinity Gauntlet together with the Soul Stone attached to it. Spoiler alert: if you haven’t seen the movie until now (seriously?), then you wouldn’t want to know why is it so.

Avengers Hulk Helicopter Drop (76144)

Well, LEGO does not really have the reputation of being completely movie-accurate with regards to rendering MCU films into sets. Nevertheless, if you’re a LEGO Marvel MCU completionist, then its nice to have that Rescue armor around. The LEGO Marvel Avengers Hulk Helicopter Drop (76144) is expected to retail for $60 and will be available in US stores beginning November 25. Check out the rest of its official images and product description courtesy of Brick Fanatics.

Avengers Hulk Helicopter Drop (76144)

Team up with the Avengers in an epic aerial battle against the Chitauri soldiers! Launch the helicopter with Rescue and fire the triple stud shooters at the mighty Leviathan. Dodge the Chitauri flyer’s stud shooters. Surprise the enemy by dropping the mighty Hulk into battle. Then attack with Rescue’s Power Blasts and Black Widow’s batons. Who will win this LEGO Marvel Avengers Endgame? You decide!

New LEGO Overwatch 2019 Official Images Released

A week ago, the LEGO Catalog for the 2nd half of this year has confirmed the arrival of two, new LEGO Overwatch 2019 sets sometime in October. There were speculations on what they will be, with signs pointing at the duo of Junkrat and Roadhog, plus the cute but deadly Hammond, aka Wrecking Ball. This time around, Amazon UK has put an end on all the speculations and has finally revealed what we can expect from these new sets. Read on and take a look.

The first to be revealed is the LEGO Overwatch Wrecking Ball (75976) coming in at 227 pieces, expected to retail for around $20 USD. Though I am not strictly an Overwatch fan, I have to say that I’m impressed on how LEGO designers managed to faithfully capture the looks of this powerhouse mech in LEGO bricks. Based on these visuals, this build also comes in with two alternate modes – a spherical ball and a walking, offensive mech – as seen in the video game. Plus the Hammond hamster minifigure is really cute.

The next set to be revealed by Amazon UK is the LEGO Overwatch Junkrat and Roadhog (75977).  The set features the demolition duo together with their signature Junkertown Bike. I like how this brick rendition turned out, considering that the bike also comes with a display base and a bit of Junkertown scenery. As an added bonus, it also comes with a unique Pachimari printed element. Roadhog also comes in as a new bigfig mold so this is something interesting to see.

I would like to see the official product description on these new LEGO Overwatch 2019 sets to know more about their details and other play features. And since they have an October (or perhaps earlier in August) release date, then we can expect more info to come in during the next few weeks. There’s also no indication as of this posting that these sets are retailer exclusives so we can also expect to see them listed at LEGO Shop@Home soon.  Special thanks to Brickset for the heads-up!

July 2019 LEGO Store Calendar Highlights and Promotions

LEGO is pushing through with its plans of going entirely digital now that the July 2019 LEGO Store Calendar has been released online. With that in mind, let’s take a look at what’s in store for LEGO fans next month.

LEGO Store Calendar

LEGO Store Calendar

July 1-31: Weekly Building Challenges

Starting every Monday of July, your local LEGO store will feature space-themed building challenges where participants may have their brick creations put on display. I’m not quite sure if registration is required but I guess the calendar implies that walk-ins are also accepted.

 

July 12-14: It’s Christmas in July!
The exclusive, gift-with-purchase set Christmas Gift Box (40292) from last year, 2018.

This is quite interesting since this promo is available only on weekends, and the calendar did not exactly specify what could be the exclusive offer. However, since this portion of this advert mentions that the offer is valid until supplies last, I am assuming that the set to be given away is the limited edition 2018 holiday gift-with-purchase set, Christmas Gift Box (40292).  This is a gorgeous set filled with hidden surprises, so if you missed out on this one, be sure to drop by your local LEGO Store during this 3-day promo event.

 

July 10-17: Monthly Mini Build – Fun Frog (40326)
Fun Frog Mini Build (40326)

To reserve a spot, visit your local LEGO® Store starting July 5. This requires getting a bit of being used to since LEGO has dropped the online registration mechanics in favor of an in-store one. What also seems to be puzzling is that the Mini Builds page of LEGO Shop@Home specifically states that the MMB program has been discontinued since April of this year, with only the building instructions published on their page. Personally, I like the idea of having Monthly Mini Builds since a lot of kids (and adults as well) get to bring home free LEGO. We just have to wait and see where these changes will lead us.

 

July 18-21: Free LEGO City Space Satellite (30365) Polybag

For the entire third week of July, LEGO Stores will be running a promotional that fans will find enticing. The LEGO City Space Satellite (30365) polybag can be yours for free for a minimum single receipt purchase of LEGO products worth $40 USD and above, or while supplies last.

 

As you can see from this LEGO Store Calendar, the month of July also marks the release of some of the highly anticipated LEGO sets such as the LEGO Jurassic Park: T. rex Rampage (75936) and the latest wave of LEGO Harry Potter 2019 sets.  Be sure to drop by at the LEGO brand store nearest you for more details about these promos.
