Upcoming LEGO Star Wars 2020 Sets Confirmed By Online Retailer

After giving us a peek at things to come during this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Swiss online toy retailer Meinspielzeug has listed what seems to be our first batch of upcoming LEGO Star Wars 2020 sets. Images are still missing of course since its understandable that they may still be under an embargo. However, since we’re just essentially a couple of months away before their January 2020 release, some retailers are now gradually updating their databases.

If you also recall back in August, there was a rumor going around that LEGO might be releasing another set similar to that of the LEGO Star Wars busts that were initially offered as exclusives. As it seems, builds that follow the genre of such sets like the LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Bust (75227) which was released as a Target 2019 Star Wars Celebration exclusive, and the LEGO Star Wars Sith Trooper Bust (77901) exclusively offered to SDCC 2019 attendees, will now be offered mainstream. Meinspielzeug has now confirmed this, together with a handful of other upcoming LEGO Star Wars sets that you might want to keep tabs with and save on for your post-Christmas LEGO purchases.

Here are some of the listings for these LEGO Star Wars 2020 sets as confirmed on Meinspielzeug’s website. As of now, only the set’s piece count and retail price (in Swiss Francs) are posted, but I guess this will suffice in giving us an early impression of how these sets will measure up.

What I also find interesting is the fact that both the Stormtrooper and Boba Fett Busts seem to have almost twice the number of pieces as compared to its predecessors, giving the impression that they are considerably larger.

Other interesting sets that I’m looking forward to is the Mandalorian Battle Pack and that TIE Dagger. Both are new sets under the LEGO Star Wars theme considering that the former is a direct tie-in under the Disney+ Mandalorian series (which is about to launch in a few hours), while the latter is a new Star Wars vehicle that we will see in the big screen when Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker debuts next month.

So what do you think of this list of new LEGO Star Wars 2020 sets? Which of them are you looking forward to? Comment down below to share your thoughts.

LEGO DC Batman 1989 Batmobile (76139)

WATCH: 2020 LEGO Chinese Festival Special Edition Sets Designer Video

A designer video has been released for LEGO’s 2020 Chinese Festival Special Edition sets, and it gives us a better look at their features from the perspective of the LEGO design team. The LEGO Lion Dance (80104) and the LEGO Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105) are the latest sets to be included in LEGO’s roster of seasonal sets that celebrate the festivities of the Chinese Spring Festival.

The LEGO Lion Dance (80104) set.
The LEGO Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105) set.

The official reveals earlier today gave us a glimpse of what we can expect from these sets, and this designer video from the perspective of LEGO Product Designer, Markus Rollbühler, gives us a closer look at these sets’ play features and their highlights. Watch this.

The LEGO design team meticulously paid attention to the fine details of the Chinese Spring Festival so they can be translated well in LEGO bricks. For the LEGO Lion Dance (80104) set, they looked into the classic tale of the Nian lion and how it interacts with the objects around it. Such as when it gets a red envelope and spits out or gives out the greens (in this case a piece of lettuce) – both symbolizing good fortune and blessings for business. The final design perfectly captures the details of the Nian lion, including the unique shape of its head, eyes, and mouth. The mouth opens and closes while the build itself can be posed in many different ways thanks to the minifigure torso and legs that are included with it.

LEGO Chinese Festival Special Edition

Speaking about minifigs, this set also features a new, costumed minifigure that celebrates 2020 as being the Year of the Metal Rat.

LEGO Chinese Festival Special Edition

The LEGO Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105) is more of a collection of several builds that when combined together creates a busy market place, giving life to the traditional Chinese Spring Festival. There are five primary builds: a shrine, and four stalls loaded with details, each highlighting a particular activity or ware. We have a food stall, a toy stall, a shadow theater, and a vase & pottery store. These are accentuated by numerous traditional Chinese decors placed across them.

Both of these 2020 LEGO Chinese Festival Special Edition sets can be displayed individually, but it will certainly look great seeing them combined together for a more immersive play experience. You can arrange the stalls around the Lion Dance performance for example, while the family checks out each of the stalls. If you already have the LEGO Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner (80101) set, then it will be great adding this to the display as well.

I’m excited to see these sets in person, and if you’re looking forward to having these sets and you’re currently based in China or in the Asia Pacific, you’ll be glad to know that both these LEGO Chinese Festival Special Edition sets will be available in these regions on December 26, 2019. If you’re outside these regions, then you’ll only have to wait a couple of weeks when they are released worldwide on January 10, 2020.

Thanks to The Brothers Brick for sharing this video.

LOOK: The LEGO Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105) Officially Revealed

Following the reveal of the first 2020 regional-themed, seasonal set in the form of the LEGO Lion Dance (80104), LEGO has also revealed another set that celebrates 2020’s new Lunar Year festivities. The LEGO Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105) has been officially unveiled and is a great addition to any existing collection that marks these festivities.

LEGO fans who are keeping track of these sets will notice that the same minifigure family included in the LEGO Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner (80101) comes back to continue their journey of celebrating the Spring Festival.  If I may say, this set is the most elaborate of all the themed set under this category and even includes a huge number of detailed minifigures – 14 in total to be exact. I also appreciate the thoughtful design process that went through the creation of the LEGO Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105), including that of the Lion Dance (80104). According to LEGO Product designer Markus Rollbühler, they’ve intentionally designed the sets to be as authentic as possible. “We were incredibly thorough with our research when designing the sets. For the Chinese New Year Temple Fair, we looked closely at the types of things vendors sell in the market stalls and all of the various goods on offer.”

Together with the LEGO Lion Dance (80104), the LEGO Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105) will also launch in China and the Asia Pacific region on December 26, 2019 and will be offered to the rest of world on January 10, 2019. Read on for LEGO’s official description for this set, and be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home during these dates.

LEGO Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105)

Chinese New Year Temple Fair (80105)

The Chinese New Year Temple Fair set captures a beloved event often seen in towns and cities throughout China around the lunar new year. The set includes stalls displaying a vast, colorful array of LEGO versions of authentic items you would find at a Temple Fair. Everything from barbecue dishes to candy, toys, vases and dough figurines are lovingly re-created ion LEGO form. The set also includes 14 minifigures. Eagle-eyed LEGO fans will notice that the family from last year’s Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner set make an appearance, continuing the story of their Spring Festival celebrations.

New LEGO Lion Dance (80104) Set Officially Revealed

LEGO is further gearing up its roster of 2020 sets, and this next one will certainly be appreciated across Asia and the rest of the world. A new, Chinese New Year inspired set has now been officially revealed – the LEGO Lion Dance (80104).

Similar to its first collection of regional-themed sets such as the LEGO Chinese New Year Eve’s Dinner (80101), Dragon Dance (80102), and Dragon Boat Race (80103), these new-for-2020 sets continue the journey of our family Chinese New Year Eve’s family as they welcome the new lunar year.

The LEGO Lion Dance (80104) showcases five, colorfully decorated brick-built lion figures used in the traditional Lion Dance performance. It also includes 8 minifigures, and I guess plenty of minifig legs for the dancing lion figures, lol. This set is expected to be released in China and in the Asia Pacific region earlier just after Christmas on December 26, 2019 and to the rest of the world on January 10, 2020. I’ll keep you posted on the retail price and piece count of this set any time soon. For now, here’s how the LEGO Group describes the LEGO Lion Dance (80104) set.

LEGO Lion Dance (80104)

The Lion Dance set vividly reproduces a well-loved scene of the Spring Festival and is sure to evoke fond memories of the traditional festival. The set features 5 beautifully decorated small lion figurines and a percussionists’ stage with an awesome drumming function. An accompanying temple gate is decorated with LEGO tiles featuring traditional patterns. The set also comes complete with 8 minifigures including lion dancers and a man in rat costume to mark the Year of the Rat. Additional accessory elements such as the red ‘best wishes’ scroll, red orb, cabbage, calligraphy brush and a rocket firework are included to inspire unlimited role-play.

LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile – Limited Edition (40433) Official Images Released

After the first public appearance of the next LEGO direct-to-consumer set in the form of the LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile (76139), it looks like LEGO is throwing a freebie as a form of incentive for those who are planning to purchase this. Promobricks has recently shared several official images of the LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile – Limited Edition (40433) set that may come as our next promotional or gift-with-purchase set.

LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile - Limited Edition (40433)

We don’t know yet the terms and conditions on how to obtain this set, but from the looks of these images, I think most will agree that it is something equally impressive to have like its larger counterpart. The LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile – Limited Edition (40433) has a certain premium feel to it, offered as a typical box set, and has a flair of exclusivity. Based on the set’s schematics at the back, this exclusive gift comes in at 366 pieces and proudly measures in at 29 centimeters long – almost a foot long or at 11 1/2 inches. It is quite impressive for a freebie considering how it looks. It also comes with its own fact sheet that can be displayed alongside the set, giving it a UCS kind of vibe. It simply looks gorgeous very much the same as its bigger brother.

We can expect more details to be made available about this collectible set by next week once LEGO gives its official press release about the LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile (76139), so stay tuned.

LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile (76139) Spotted at the LEGO Store in Billund Airport

For those who are in the know on the latest LEGO scoop, you might already be aware that this next D2C set is slated to be announced anytime soon. However, it looks like LEGO fans in Denmark, or more specifically for those who will be arriving or departing from Denmark’s Billund Airport, might catch a glimpse of the highly anticipated LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile (76139). Instagram user Dylan Chow managed to obtain our very first in-store image of this direct-to-consumer set. Take a look.

Since this image was obtained from an actual LEGO set prominently displayed from a LEGO brand store, then sharing this with you is all fair game. Based on the images shared by Dylan, we can see that this set will weigh in at 3,306 pieces, with a height of 5.8 inches and a length of almost 2 feet. That is one head-turning, display-worthy D2C set if you ask me! It will make a cool LEGO display set alongside LEGO’s upcoming DC Collectible Minifigures (71026) series.

LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile

LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile

LEGO is staying true with the 80s vibe on this one with the inclusion of three minifigures together with this set: we have Vicki Vale played by actress Kim Basinger, Joker as brought to life by Jack Nicholson, and a radically different minifigure iteration of Batman (played by Michael Keaton in the film). What LEGO Batman fans will quickly notice is that this latest minifig version of the Dark Knight is significantly different in such a way that both his cowl and cape are made of a single piece of soft plastic. This is a clear departure from previous LEGO variants where LEGO opted to include a piece of fabric for its minifigure capes. I feel its a proper design choice for our latest LEGO Batman and gives these minifigures a more premium feel. I guess the set’s designers would like to stay true and consistent with the original designs of the 1989 film. This is one of the things that I truly love with LEGO – the extra mile that they go through to give us those subtle, but very important details.

The LEGO Batman 1989 Batmobile (76139) is expected to retail in the US somewhere between $249.99 to $299.99 USD given its size and piece count. We don’t have any info at this time regarding its exact release date, but considering how the set has officially appeared at this particular LEGO store may suggest that its official release will be anytime soon. So be sure to stay tuned here on our Brick Show blog site for more updates. Share us what you think about this set in the comments below.

With special thanks to Promobricks for additional info.

Limited Edition LEGO Mini Gingerbread House (40337) Arriving This Christmas Season

Here’s another reason to be jolly this holiday season. It has been revealed that we will have another limited edition, gift-with-purchase (GWP) set just in time for Christmas. An image has been shared via Brick and Bricks’ Facebook page that shows the arrival of a limited edition, LEGO Mini Gingerbread House (40337) GWP set anytime soon. This freebie is a nod to its larger replica which is the LEGO Creator Expert Gingerbread House (10267).

Mini Gingerbread House (40337)

This is a great addition to the recently announced LEGO Christmas Tree (40338) set which will also be offered as a seasonal gift-with-purchase set at the end of November. Other than this first look, we don’t have further info as of now regarding its release date nor its piece count. Though the 2019 LEGO Christmas Tree (40338) freebie comes at a higher purchase price point of $120 USD because of its higher piece count, we can expect the LEGO Mini Gingerbread House (40337) to be somewhat lower. In any case, it will be great to see both of these sets on display beside that LEGO Winter Village MOC that you might be working on.

If you recall, this smaller version of the Gingerbread House is somehow reminiscent of 2015’s similar freebie which is the LEGO Gingerbread House (40139). It was offered back then during 2015’s Black Friday sales in November, with qualifying LEGO purchases worth $99 and more. So I guess it’s not far-fetched to consider that LEGO might be doing the same for this new Gingerbread House iteration.

To be completely honest, between this year’s version of the Mini Gingerbread House (40337) and that from four years ago (40139), I have to say that I prefer the latter. But in any case, I’m not the type to really complain especially considering the fact that this is a free set. I just hope that LEGO will offer this new freebie at a relatively low qualifying purchase point.

Thanks to Stone Wars for the heads up.
