For those who are already planning their visit to the LEGO House this month, you may want to take advantage of this next LEGO House exclusive. The LEGO House is set to re-open on June 22 after being closed to the public for several weeks, and with it comes the announcement of the limited-edition, LEGO House The Wooden Duck (40501).
The news was shared by Brickset following the LEGO House’s announcement that another Home of the Brick exclusive which is the LEGO House Tree of Creativity (4000026) is about to be retired. It now seems that the baton is passed to the LEGO House Wooden Duck as a fitting memento of your visit to the famed Home of the Brick in Billund. It is also a great homage to the iconic wooden toy that kick-started the company’s successful run in the toy business. Before the days of ABS plastics, LEGO had a pretty successful line of wooden toys that were released during the 1930s.
Coming in at 621 pieces, the LEGO House The Wooden Duck (40501) is a brick-built, polished version of the original wooden toy that first came out in 1935. This exclusive LEGO House offering is also the first replica of the original wooden duck to be reproduced and offered to the general public. Back in 2011, LEGO also came out with a brick replica of the iconic wooden toy as a form of Christmas gift to LEGO staff and employees. This is basically smaller though, coming in only at 91 pieces.
In case visiting the LEGO House in Billund, Denmark is still far down below your bucket list, then fret not. You can still have the chance of building your very own LEGO House The Wooden Duck since its building instructions were released by LEGO Customer Service as well. In case you’re having some difficulty in downloading its instructions, then you can try to download it here as well. There seem to be no unique parts included in this set except of course for the two exclusively printed 1×8 tiles with the words “LEGO House” and “The Wooden Duck” printed on them. Take a look at the Wooden Duck’s parts list and see if you can build one.
The LEGO Group has unveiled its next brick-built super sports car – in style. Following the release of its promotional video, TLG gives its official press release for the LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 (42115), detailing the significant highlights and takeaways that we can expect from this 3rd entry for the LEGO Technic Ultimate Series. In case you missed it, here’s the promotional video once again.
The LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 (42115) will arrive in LEGO stores and at LEGO Shop@Home beginning June 1, 2020, and across most retailers globally on August 1st. It comes in at 3,000+ pieces and will retail for $379.99. You can find official images of this flagship set right here.
INTRODUCING THE LATEST LEGO® THUNDERBOLT: THE LEGO® TECHNIC™ LAMBORGHINI SIÁN FKP 37 UNVEILED IN MINIATURISED SUPERCAR LAUNCH
Billund, May 28, 2020: Today, the LEGO Group and Automobili Lamborghini unveiled the eagerly awaited LEGO® Technic™ Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 in true style. The showstopping reveal featured all the suspense, emotion and excitement of a supercar launch event – but was miniature in scale and powered entirely by LEGO Technic elements.
The star of the show, 1:8 scale LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 embodies the unrivalled power, visionary design and futuristic elegance of the limited-edition Italian super sports car. First presented at Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2019, only 63 of the full-sized Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 models are being produced, making this 3,696-piece replica the ultimate collector’s item for luxury car lovers and LEGO fans looking for their next building challenge.
Boasting a vivid lime-green colour and elegant golden rims, the model measures over 5” (13cm) high, 23” (60cm) long and 9” (25cm) wide. This one-of-a-kind model is the ultimate addition to any LEGO collection.
The LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 will be available directly from LEGO stores* and www.LEGO.com/Technic-Lamborghini-Sian from June 1st, then in many retailers globally from August 1, 2020.
A showstopping reveal
In a feat of engineering excellence, the stunning LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 made an explosive entrance worthy of any true super sports car – in the LEGO Group’s first 1:8 scale launch.
From the elegance of the setting and futuristic lighting, to the energy-charged reveal of the car’s unmistakable silhouette, the experience was crafted entirely from LEGO Technic pieces, showing that with LEGO Technic, you can build whatever you can imagine.
The unveil was shown globally to give luxury car fans and LEGO lovers the chance to experience the magic and emotion of a real super sports car launch. The video of the reveal and the making of story can be viewed here.
A design ahead of its time
The LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 embodies the unmistakable power and stunning looks of the Lamborghini Sián both in design and style. The super sports car’s futuristic features are recreated in elaborate and authentic detail, bringing proud owners closer to the real model than they could ever imagine. These immersive touches include a replica of the Lamborghini Sián’s incomparable V12 engine, a rear spoiler that pops up like the real thing, front and rear suspension, and steering powered by a wheel adorned with the Automobili Lamborghini emblem.
In true Lamborghini style, the model also boasts scissor doors which open to reveal the perfectly recreated cockpit. Inside, the car’s luxurious interior has been intricately recreated with a fully-functioning 8-speed sequential gearbox triggered by a movable paddle gearshift.
Speaking about the visionary design, Niels. B. Christiansen, LEGO Group CEO, said: “This new model truly encapsulates the pursuit of excellence embedded in the DNA of both Automobili Lamborghini and the LEGO Group. Both the 1:8 model and the reveal itself are feats of engineering innovation, pulled off by incredibly talented teams from across our two businesses. The LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 is a true testament that with LEGO® Technic, you can build anything your heart desires. I can’t wait to build this authentic replica of this futuristic super sports car for real.”
“The LEGO brick is an icon in the same way as a Lamborghini super sports car,” said Stefano Domenicali, CEO and Chairman of Automobili Lamborghini. “They both embody the pursuit of design perfection through constant research and development, create different emotions with every interaction, and are valued by generations. Each Lamborghini super sports car can be unique thanks to our Ad Personam personalization program and the specific driving style of each owner, just as LEGO bricks provide builders of all ages with endless possibilities for creation. This outstanding replica of the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 from the LEGO Group presents a brilliant new building experience for both super sports car fans and LEGO enthusiasts and Lamborghini is privileged to share in this opportunity with the LEGO Group.”
To make the building experience as thrilling and immersive as a spin behind the wheel of the real car, proud owners can also pop open the front hood to discover a stylish Lamborghini overnight bag and a unique serial number that unlocks special content at www.LEGO.com/lamborghini-sian.
An exclusive series of 13 videocasts featuring Automobili Lamborghini and LEGO experts can also be accessed through QR codes in two ‘coffee-table’ style collectors’ booklets that accompany the model. As fans work through the comprehensive building instructions, these videocasts delve deep into the inspiration behind different stages of the design. However, it is not just the building experience that is totally unique: the LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 comes shrouded in a unique box inspired by the iconic lines, signature headlight silhouette and eye-catching colour of the original Lamborghini Sián.
The LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 (42115) is the third set under the LEGO Technic Ultimate Series, following the release of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS (42056) in 2016 and Bugatti Chiron (42083) in 2018. This 18+ set comes in at a whopping 3,696 pieces and measures at an impressive over 5” (13cm) high, 23” (60cm) long and 9” (25cm) wide. That’s almost two feet of pure aesthetic beauty.

There are lots of new LEGO sets expected to arrive next month, and LEGO has unveiled a pair of new LEGO summer 2020 minifigure packs slated to arrive in June. Almost all of LEGO’s themes are getting additional sets this summer, and some of its licensed sets such as those coming from the LEGO Harry Potter and Marvel Super Heroes themes will be getting their minifigure packs as well.
These new LEGO summer 2020 minifigure packs feature a LEGO Marvel Avengers Falcon and the Black Widow Minifigure Pack (40418) and a LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Students Minifigure Pack (40419) – both of which are slated to arrive in June both in-store and online at LEGO Shop@Home. The Falcon and Black Widow minifig pack include two new versions of the iconic Marvel superheroes. This newer version of Falcon sports a pair of brick-built pair of wings, while Black Widow gets her sixth minifigure version. Included in this pack are two additional AIM agents similar to those seen in the upcoming LEGO Marvel summer 2020 sets, plus a 1×1 round stud shooter.
The Harry Potter Hogwarts Students minifigure pack features an interesting mix of characters coming from each house of Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It includes Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy, Hannah Abbot, and Cho Chang. As Brickset points out, this is the second minifig rendition of Cho Chang, the first being that from the first LEGO Harry Potter CMF (71022). This set also includes a small bookcase, a few wizardry artifacts, and a uniquely printed tile that features a Marauder’s Map.
As of this posting, only the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Students minifigure pack is listed at LEGO’s European shopping portals, with both of these new LEGO summer 2020 minifigure packs still waiting to be seen in LEGO Shop@Home in the US. However, we can expect these to appear anytime soon, so be sure to keep an eye on them.
Besides these two, fans are also excited about the arrival of the LEGO Star Wars 501st Legion™ Clone Troopers (75280). Though this does not exactly qualify as a minifigure pack, having this elite unit from the Clone Wars rendered as an official LEGO set is something that LEGO Star Wars fans have been wishing for a very long time.
Be sure to check with LEGO Shop@Home during the next few days to catch these new LEGO summer 2020 minifigure packs. I’ll also update this post once the links go live, so you may want to bookmark our blog site as well.
Thanks again to Huw of Brickset for sharing these images.
Some LEGO fan websites spotted this piece of news several days ago, and I find it interesting to take note of them here on our blog site. LEGO Shop@Home in Europe has updated their listing to now include a pair of LEGO Xtra Tape accessories to jazz up your LEGO City builds.
The LEGO Xtra Tape may seem to be too simplistic (well, after all, it’s tape) – but looking at how it is functioned to provide texture to any builds, plus the additional LEGO pieces that go with them, I wouldn’t mind purchasing them for $7.99. Each of these LEGO Xtra Tape accessories measures at 15 meters in length, and comes in two variants: the Road Tape (854048) and the Water Tape (854065), both of which come with a few LEGO decorative pieces that can accentuate your next LEGO City build or underwater adventure.
LEGO® fans will be thrilled to stage exciting action and races with this cool Road Tape accessory set (854048). Roll out the grey tape featuring road markings, tire skid marks and grass effects, and kids can create fun stories with it and 8 elements, which include a speed sign, traffic cones, traffic light and moped. The set can be combined with other LEGO® sets, so kids can race all their vehicles along the tape.
LEGO® fans will love bringing the sea to life with this awesome Water Tape accessory set (854065). Roll out the blue tape, featuring ripple and wave effects, and kids can immediately create fun stories from the sea with it and 10 elements, which include a frog, fish, crab, seaweed and raft. Imaginative youngsters will be captivated for hours.
Earlier this year, LEGO has announced its first-ever collaboration with the Lamborghini company to offer the first LEGO Technic set centered on its latest flagship product. After several teasers on its social media sites, there’s strong reason to believe that this next big reveal will be the LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián (42115).
According to LEGO’s latest tweet, the full reveal of this set will happen tomorrow on May 28.
Following the tradition of other LEGO partnerships with world-class automotive companies such as Porsche and Bugatti, LEGO has now teamed up with Automobili Lamborghini to create a brick-rendition of the latter’s Sián FKP 37. The Sián is the company’s first hybrid super sports car powered by a V12 engine, and running on hybrid technology using supercapacitors.
If you will look closely at LEGO’s most recent tweet, the headlights of its upcoming flagship LEGO Technic set bears a very close resemblance to that of the Lamborghini Sián. Its sides also match that of the super sportscar which comes in an olive-green color theme. As such, the LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián (42115) is the third set in the line of the LEGO Technic Ultimate Series following the Porsche 911 GT3 RS (42056) in 2016 and Bugatti Chiron (42083) in 2018.
Here’s what Niels Henrik Horsted, LEGO Technic Marketing Director, has to say about this new partnership with Automobili Lamborghini:
“Following the success of the former Ultimate models, both the Porsche and the Bugatti, it was crucial for us to find a new partner with an iconic vehicle, an unmistakable design DNA and ground breaking use of technology.”
The LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián will be available in LEGO brand stores and at LEGO Shop@Home starting June 1, 2020, with the grand unveiling to be done tomorrow. Be sure to keep tabs with LEGO’s official web and social media channels to catch this big reveal, or you may bookmark our blogsite to keep you notified.
The LEGO Store June 2020 Store Calendar is now out, underscoring its latest line of brick-built vehicles including an attractive gift-with-purchase (GWP) set. Though it will take a lot of getting used to with regards to the many in-store activities that are effectively canceled in LEGO brand stores no thanks to our current pandemic, the LEGO Group has slowly adapted to the new normal by gradually opening its stores in the US. With that in mind, let’s take a quick look at what next month’s LEGO Store promotional calendar has to offer.
Similar to this month’s freebie in the form of the LEGO City Beach Buggy (30369), we now have another GWP ride that fans will appreciate. The LEGO Creator Hot Rod (40409) will be yours for free for a minimum single-receipt purchase of LEGO products worth $85 and above. The qualifying purchase needed to bag this freebie is a bit higher as compared to other promotional items this year, but being a scaled model of its predecessor, the LEGO Model Team Blue Fury (5541) from the mid-90s (re-issued in 2004 as set 10151), plus coming in with two minifigures, then I guess I will not mind the qualifying purchase. The LEGO Creator Hot Rod (40409) is valued at $13, so having it as a freebie is a welcomed deal in itself. Be sure to check with your local LEGO store or over at LEGO Shop@Home starting June 1 for this freebie’s availability since this can quickly fly off the shelves. If you wish to see more of this collectible set, then I suggest that you check out The Brothers Brick’s extensive review.
As I mentioned earlier, in-store activities are still restricted in all LEGO Stores, so the usual Build-and-Take and designer signing events are effectively canceled. Most LEGO stores are only allowing curbside pickups as of to date as part of LEGO’s compliance towards physical distancing guidelines. I guess its part of the so-called new normal so, we have to eventually adapt to these new systems that are slowly taking shape.
LEGO has now made it possible to make learning more fun at home. While many families are gradually adapting to the new normal, and even with more parents embracing the idea of homeschooling, LEGO has now included at LEGO Shop@Home, for the first time ever, their line of LEGO Education sets that were previously offered exclusively to schools and other learning institutions.
These LEGO Education sets include the WeDo 2.0 core products, and even the SPIKE Prime set that was introduced earlier this year. The price tag on these sets is a bit hefty considering that they include electronic components that are unique to this theme. Children as young as Pre-K can benefit from this STEAM-inspired LEGO learning kits, helping them grasp the rudiments of computer programming and robotics.
The LEGO Education sets are now available – just click on the following affiliate links below if you wish to know more about them. Be sure to visit the LEGO Education website for more resources on how you can get the most out of these sets.
Earlier this month, we caught a glimpse of things to come for the LEGO Friends summer 2020 lineup of sets, including an interesting mix of new LEGO pieces and animal figures. This time, LEGO has updated its servers and adds two additional LEGO Friends sets slated to be released next month.
This next wave of LEGO Friends sets continues the summer vacation of the gang while doing animal rescue work on the side as inspired by National Graphic. These new sets, the LEGO Friends Alpaca Mountain Jungle Rescue (41432) and Party Boat (41433), features two new animal figures in the LEGO Friends theme. Set 41432 features a brick-built mountain/volcano with a trio of cute alpaca figures, while the Party Boat also includes the new pink flamingo figure that can also be seen in related LEGO Friends summer 2020 sets like the Beach House (41428) and Summer Fun Water Park (41430).
Check out the following images below and you may click at their respective affiliate links over at LEGO Shop@Home for more info. These LEGO Friends summer 2020 sets will be available starting June 1.

The LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Summer 2020 sets have been officially revealed, and one particular set that caught my AFOL’s eye is the LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet (76165). The announcement of this set is a welcomed surprise actually, and a fitting tribute to one of the pillars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Thanks to the Laughing Place, we now have a better look at what to expect from the upcoming LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet (76165) and what it means to the trend of buildable display helmets later in the future. To be accurate, we only have a couple of images for this set as of today, so I do hope to see its respective listing at LEGO Shop@Home anytime soon.
From the get-go, LEGO intends to give this set its 18+ branding making it clear that this set is intended for AFOLs or adult fans of LEGO as a buildable display set. True to their word, the LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet (76165) follows the same aesthetics as that of the LEGO Star Wars Helmet Collection such as the TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet (75274), Stormtrooper Helmet (75276) and Boba Fett Helmet (75277). At 480 pieces, this brick rendition of Tony Stark’s helmet also comes in a similar scale as compared to its Star Wars counterpart. LEGO also seems to be aiming for a uniform display base for all of its collectible helmets, including a standard nameplate for all of them.
The box art of the Iron Man Helmet also follows the same design as its predecessors, with the 18+ logo prominently displayed in front. LEGO intends this brick sculpture to be more of a display set that appeals to older LEGO collectors. The Avengers logo is also included in front adding an MCU vibe into it – a fitting tribute to a fallen hero that we all cried for during his final heroic moments in Avengers: Endgame. Among the helmet series, this one definitely has a reserved spot in my collection.
The LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet is expected to arrive in Target stores on June 1, though we can also expect it to be available by then at LEGO stores both online and in-store since there was no mention that it is a store exclusive.
So what do you think of this latest addition to the LEGO helmet series? Will you give this a thumbs up? Do you have other licensed characters in mind that are fitting to be given the LEGO helmet treatment? Let me know what you think in the comments below.
