The latest trailer of Captain Marvel has now landed on the web, and you may or may not like how Brie Larson sounded off when she declared that she’ll end the Kree-Skrull war, but I have to say that this does not dampen my enthusiasm in seeing this next MCU instalment when it lands in theaters in March next year. In case you missed it, here’s the 2nd trailer of Disney and Marvel’s Captain Marvel.
Now at around the 1:15 mark, you’ll immediately notice the SHIELD Quinjet that eventually made its way to become a LEGO set, revealed to have been spotted in TRU stores in Canada. The snapped image by an eagle-eyed LEGO Marvel fan shows a sizeable brick-built version of what could be SHIELD’s early version of the famed Quinjet. It also shows Captain Marvel of course and a younger version of Nick Fury together with a Skrull minifigure. This time, thanks to Yahoo News, we now have a better look at this new MCU-inspired LEGO playset in the form of the LEGO Marvel Captain Marvel and the Skrull Attack (76127), including its official product description. Take a look.
LEGO Marvel Captain Marvel and the Skrull Attack (76127)
307 pieces; $29.99
Minifigures include Captain Marvel, Nick Furry, Talos and a cat figure.
Fly with Captain Marvel and Nick Fury to rescue Goose the cat from Talos the Skrull! Zoom over the desert with Fury in his awesome Quinjet. Watch out for the Talos’s stud shooter. Fire 4 missiles at once with each of the jet’s flick-missile shooters and attack with Captain Marvel’s power energy. Then grab Goose, place her in the back of the jet and fly away!
Since the LEGO Marvel Captain Marvel and the Skrull Attack (76127) set has already found its way in toy shelves in TRU Canada, then we can expect this to appear anytime soon in the US, hopefully in the first weeks of January. The rumor mill also tells that there might be five LEGO tie-in sets that bear the Avengers logo, though it is unclear if LEGO opted to add another set dedicated to the Kree superhero. From the looks of it, it seems that LEGO intends to bring together all upcoming MCU-related building sets under the banner of the Marvel Avengers. I guess this is great considering how well these upcoming LEGO Marvel sets can be brought together for a massive Marvel universe showdown. We’ll soon find out soon enough.
Disney’s Captain Marvel will land in theaters March 8, 2019.
Following the rumor that the LEGO BrickHeadz theme might be discontinued soon, LEGO seems to be testing the waters with its new collection of seasonal sets that are now revealed to be slated for release in 2019. Thanks to Hoth Bricks, we now have a closer look at these new 2019 LEGO BrickHeadz Seasonal sets, starting with a festive Party Clown, a Valentines Puppy, and a Dragon Dance Guy that marks the celebration of the Chinese New Year. To be exact, we have official images of the first three sets under this theme followed by a glimpse of other LEGO BrickHeadz Seasonal sets slated for 2019. Check these out.
LEGO BrickHeadz Party Clown (40348)
LEGO BrickHeadz Valentines Puppy (40349)
LEGO BrickHeadz Dragon Dance Guy (40354)
The back portion of box art for the Valentines Puppy also shows the rest of the seasonal 2019 LEGO BrickHeadz line-up which includes a Chick (40350), Ghost (40351), and what looks like to be a Christmas triple-pack that shows a Reindeer, Elf and Elfie (40353) collectively.
From the looks of things, LEGO seems to have pretty much laid out its plans for the LEGO BrickHeadz theme next year, and based on these set numbers, it looks like there are still more reveals waiting for these chibi brick creations. What do you think brick fans, are you happy on how these LEGO BrickHeadz sets turned out? Let us know in the comments section below.
One of the losses for the American LEGO fandom with the closure of Toys R Us in the US (before its impending return as Geoffrey’s Toy Box) were the special exclusive sets made available during annual events like Bricktober in October. It certainly made acquiring the 2018 edition 4-minifigure sets a chore outside of brief LEGO promotions and other-retailer availability. By these methods, US LEGO fans had some chance of getting either the LEGO Harry Potter Bricktober minifigures (5005254, via Barnes & Noble) or the LEGO Jurassic World (5005255) and LEGO Ninjago (5005257) packs. But there are four Bricktober 2018 sets. So what about the LEGO Bricktober Marvel Minifigures (5005256)?
Originally promised to be available as promotional items in LEGO Stores as listed on monthly store calendars, the passing of September, October and November without word seems to indicate that at the very least, the LEGO Bricktober Marvel set (5005256) will never reach the US.
Apparently, the LEGO Bricktober Marvel Minifigure set (5005256) was only conventionally available for purchase at Toys R Us Canada, in all of North America. That pretty much writes off any chance to get it from stateside; so only three of the four Bricktober 2018 sets came through. It’s too bad not getting those uncommon Marvel minifigures of War Machine, Wong, unarmored Tony Stark and the Winter Soldier.
If you’re resigned to this news, and still haven’t gotten the LEGO Harry Potter set (5005254) from B&N, they’ve got their promo going all the way to December 26, meaning no worries on that front.
The LEGO Movie 2 sets are about to be released this month (right after Christmas exactly), and now that LEGO has listed the first wave of sets for this theme at shop.LEGO.com, it seems that more info is coming in regarding one of the film’s mysterious characters. The person of Sweet Mayhem is still shrouded in mystery, but thanks to LEGO Shop@Home, the character under the enigmatic helmet is now revealed.
There are three sets in particular that includes Sweet Mayhem’s minidoll figure. And among these three sets, we get to see her featured at the back portion of some these sets as posted on LEGO’s shopping portal. To be exact, only two out of three sets actually shows Sweet Mayhem with her helmet off, revealing a personality that is both sweet and chaotic at the same time. Take a look below.
Introducing Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi (70824)
115 pieces | Ages 6+ | $9.99 USD
Sweet Mayhem’s Systar Starship (70830)
500 pieces | Ages 9+ | $69.99 USD
She kinds of remind me of Vanellope von Schweetz from Wreck it Ralph in terms of personality. From the looks of it, my guess is that she can be both emphatic and mean at the same time. Will she turn out to be the film’s lead baddie as we thought she will based from the trailer? Will soon find out in February once the film lands in US theaters.
The LEGO Movie 2 is slated to hit theaters on February 9, and voiced by the same awesome artists from the first film such as Chris Pratt (Emmet and Rex Dangervest), Elizabeth Banks (Lucy), and Will Arnett (LEGO Batman) among others.

Just over three months remain before the next installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel starring Bree Larson, arrives in cinemas. It doesn’t take a genius to know that LEGO also has its hand in the merchandise pie for this future blockbuster. In fact, some of the film’s tie-in sets have already been spotted. Again, a German LEGO news source – Promo Bricks this time – has brought word that once more, Toys R Us Canada has the distinction of putting a LEGO set supposed to come out in 2019 on their shelves now. It’s named the LEGO Marvel Captain Marvel and the Skrull Attack (76127).
This set is centered on a vehicle with minifigures added for an awesome action sequence. The vehicle looks very similar to SHIELD quinjet, as it probably looks like in the 1990s when the Captain Marvel film takes place. It’s armed with a pair of 4 flick-missile launchers.
Its accompanying minifigures include Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, young SHIELD Agent Nick Fury, Carol’s pet cat Goose, and the Skrull infiltrator Talos, who himself is armed with a pistol that has a spring-loaded projectile. Accommodations on the quinjet include a one-pilot cockpit and cargo or passenger space accessible by rear hatch.
For now, the only price known for the Captain Marvel and the Skrull Attack (76127) is at a Canadian price of $39.94 CAD on that country’s Toys R Us stores. Rough conversions would be US$29.99, £23.65 and €26.62, though there’s no further news on when this tie-in might be available outside Canada. Meanwhile, Captain Marvel premieres March 8, 2019.
Over the past week we have covered the release of the first full images of so many LEGO sets that are officially coming out throughout the beginning of the coming year. Among those lines is LEGO City, which boasted an impressive number of upcoming sets, themed around firefighting and police. While the batch updates of 2019 LEGO City sets seem over and done with, individual sets are still being presented, such as this impressive firefighting set featuring the impressive LEGO City Fire Plane (60217). Listed by Toys R Us Canada, the Fire Plane is a shout out to those extreme machines that are deployed to fight forest fires in national parks.
The Fire Plane (60217) evokes the “water-bomber” firefighting aircraft, amphibious planes that can land on a body of water, fill up its internal tanks, then fly over a large blaze to dump the water onto the fire (represented by transparent dome pieces).
Also included in the set is an all-terrain buggy with an all new 3-stud shooter. As for what these vehicles will be trying to put out, the set includes two trees of varying sizes (with a resident skunk), dotted with these awesome “fire pieces” found on the other LEGO City firefighting sets.
The LEGO City Fire Plane (60217) also includes three minifigures: an aircraft pilot, buggy driver, and an on-foot forest fireman. Here’s the set’s product description as mentioned by TRU Canada.

When the official images for the Ferrari F40 Competizione LEGO set (75890) was revealed just days before, it was the assurance that the Speed Champions line of brick-built high-performance cars wasn’t going to fade quietly just yet. And the F40 itself is a magnificent sight with plenty of swappable options. LEGO hinted at more Speed Champions sets arriving in 2019 than just the Ferrari, and we now have the rest of the 2019 LEGO Speed Champions respective box art images . There are two more single-car sets and two dual sets due to arrive next year.
Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Race Car (75891)
McLaren Senna (75892)
2018 Challenger SRT Demon 2018 and 1970 Dodge Charger R/T (75893)
1967 Mini Cooper S Rally and 2018 MINI John Cooper Works Buggy (75894)
We’ve had the privilege of sharing with our readers the official pages of the first 2019 sets for the LEGO Friends series quite recently. They included some sweet building and vehicle sets plus character-specific Heart Box kits with the cute minifigures of the circle of girl friends from Heartlake City.
Apparently, those are only the “big” LEGO Friends sets to expect next year; there are also the “small” products to expect from the Heartlake gang. By that we mean LEGO Friends polybags are also on their way, with one already found in advance at a toy store in Bonn, Germany.
This Friends polybag is numbered 30409 and features Emma with her pet cat. The descriptive name for the product hasn’t been discovered yet by German LEGO news source Promo Bricks, but it does feature Emma and her pet riding bumper cars: one minifigure-sized for her, and the other one kitty-sized.
For its pricing in Europe, the LEGO Friends polybag 30409 is €3.99 – about the usual to be expected from a polybag of this size. The appearance of this item is proof that perhaps despite being earmarked for a 2019 official release, LEGO fans can have this and other new Friends sets before the year’s end.
After last week’s reveal of the 2019 LEGO Ninjago Legacy subtheme, we now have additional images of yet another redesigned Ninjago set based from Season 1’s Rise of the Snake. This time around, the fearsome four-headed Ultra Dragon is now included in the roster of Ninjago Legacy sets as revealed by DeToyz Shop. The LEGO Ninjago Legacy The Ultra Dragon (70679) comes in at 951 pieces and is based on a redesigned version of the first Ultra Dragon set as included in 2012’s Epic Dragon Battle (9450). Check out its following box art.
LEGO Ninjago Legacy The Ultra Dragon (70679)
$79.99; 951 pieces
As you may have noticed, this set is not entirely a re-release, but an improvement in terms of design and play features. Most noticeable is the new dragon heads which are completely brick-built equipped with stud shooters mounted on its jaws. Its wings are now also made of thin, membrane-like vinyl which LEGO included as wing accessories in Ninjago sets beginning with Attack of the Morro Dragon (70736)released in 2015. The Ultra Dragon (70679) also comes with six minifigures: Lloyd, Master Wu, Lord Garmadon, Pythor, and a couple of Serpentine Warriors.
Other than the Ultra Dragon, the Malaysian LEGO fan blogsite also shared box art images of the new Ninjago Legacy Spinjitzu series. We mentioned them before in our previous post, but we now have official images of these spinners as you can see below.
